But the point here is that we’re hardly America’s only special relationship. In July, Obama hailed the “truly special relationship” between the US and UK, telling David Cameron there was “no closer ally and no closer partner” than Britain. In March, vice president Joe Biden said: “The US has no better friend in the community of nations than Israel.” Last July, Obama told the Indian people that “they have no better friend and partner than the people of the United States”. One could provide more such quotes, but you get the point: we’re not so special after all.
