It doesn't need to be turned around because there's not a problem. The English speaking nations continue to be the strongest collaboration between nations and history has shown that this is all that has really ever mattered. Our other allies have gone nowhere as proven when the French begged for support in Libya and later in Mali. Our European allies have been burdens, not assets. Ever notice how American treasure and blood is fine when it comes to dealing with Europe's messes? Not so when it comes to using it elsewhere. We are not Europe's. They have used us for our treasure and muscle since 1915 when we began to provide arms and ammunition to the Allied side. The Gulf War proved how much they have been leaching off our success when they couldn't even provide the bare minimum of support. To this day they can't airlift their militaries to help us in Afghanistan without our aircrafts. They started two world Wars and a Cold War. Yet they reserve the right to practice their ancient anti-Americanism whenever they get the chance and try to preach to us about morality? We place too much importance on Europe and this is why we kept getting into trouble with them. Today it is just habit. Aside from making sure they behave on the continent, not suck us into anymore of their colonial messes (Vietnam, Iran, Egypt), and continue trade (which they will), they serve no other real purpose other than to provide an illusion of international cooperation. A lot of their resentments come from their own historical failures as they watched America usurp global power and do it with greater charm, humanity, and finess. Jealousy is present in their criticisms. Think about it....we have caused, been a part of, or seen the fall of 11 empires in our short history as the majority of the world began to travel our path. That's a lot of people and populations along the way that watched the UNited States prevail as their own agendas were spoiled.
