Australia would be very unwise to do anything to harm China. So far they have been a lot smarter than Canada.

Poland. pfff, who cares such a spineless nation.
I have met several Poland and Turkey guys.

People there always believe that their home country "one of the most important country" on earth.

Well, they are way much overlooking themselves.

Poland is one of the most important members within EU right now is because,unlike Spain and Italy,it's economy is thriving.Even in the economic crisis that happened several years ago,its economy was growing steadily.

It is the engine of EU's eastern enlargement is because of its location,it borders Germany and other eastern european countries.Helping its Eastern neighbors to join the union reassures its security from the potential threat from Moscow.

It is playing an important role right now in the Ukrainian crisis because it borders Ukraine,if Ukraine is completely controlled by Moscow,Warsaw is in serious danger,that's why it has been very active.

US doesn't seem to have anything to deal with these,even in Ukraine,they work together(not that they have been very helpful for Ukraine though),instead of completely supported by the US.

As for Israel,sure US has been supporting them since day 1,but that country has the strongest will to defend their country,women have to join the army as well.If they have no determination to protect their home,US's suppport can't do that much of help.Taiwan is the living proof of the latter.
