Chrenkoff has a good post about the "real alliances"

I gather from the above that for Kerry a real alliance is some sort of an international kick-ass rainbow coalition, a United Nations with their helmet on and a gun held firmly in their collective hand, linking arms and sharing the burden all the way with the USA. Alas, the truth of the matter is that in every conflict last century, save for the two world wars, the United States always provided the bulk of the fighting force and the resources, be it in Korea, Vietnam, the First Gulf War or in any of the smaller engagements around the globe. It's a fact of life that Kerry has great problems accepting. Having personal attachments to two members of the "unreal coalition" (Australia and Poland) I continue to find Kerry's denigration of America's current allies to be tiresome and disappointing, but most of all laughable. John Edwards talks a lot about "two Americas", but it seems that there also "two universes"; the one where most of us live, and the one inhabited by John Kerry. The Kerryverse is a surreal, looking glass world where concepts are inverted on their head and meanings get twisted into cosmic pretzels of nuance.
