America's most important allies:

1) Britain

2) Australia

3) Japan

4) South Korea


5) The Mongolian Hordes!

In all seriousness, President Bush visited Mongolia earlier today to thank them for their contribution to the War on Terror. Per capita, Mongolia has the third-largest contingent in Iraq, and two of their soldiers recently killed a suicide car-bomber before he could carry out his attack. It's just not very often that you see a US President, you know ... shaking hands with a Mongolian horseman.

What a photo.
