If I could put it into simple terms:

Top allies of the almighty United States of America: All the freedom loving nations in the world
Enemies of the almighty United States of America: All the Commie and Mooslim, freedom hating nations in the world.

Indonesia seems to have relatively good relationship with Russia, especially militarily, i wonder how the Russians felt about Indonesia or whether they just think of it as some random country.

As for allies and enemy, i could think of none actually, i would probably put Philippines as the closest ally we got and zero enemy state as far concerned. There's minor incidents between Indo and Aussie, Malaysia and NPG but didn't thinkit as something that could turn the table to war. relationship seems to be pretty stable.

We didn't think US as a bad nation btw or enemy, yes among the radicals sect but they're minority, generally we're cool with the US (if you recall well how Obama was praised here because he lived in Jakarta).

That was funny as hell!

That must be the reason why Saudi Arabia is one of the top allies of the USA!

LOL!

One of the things I enjoy about this post is that I'm an American. Some of you may dislike the United States, their leadership, their foreign policy and I may dislike the same things about your country, but as individuals we don't experience any of that. If a North Korean or Iranian were to log onto the City-Data World Forum and say, "Hello, American." I'd be like "Hi there, North Korean/Iranian." and we could be friends, despite apparent discrepancies in personal beliefs, global agenda and the fact that our leaders hate each other.

Now if only the whole rest of the world could see this. In a way I'd like to become friends with a person from an "enemy" nation, but I feel like most of the world pretty much thinks, "Eh, America, you're like that crazy, fat, balding uncle with lots of guns and a huge boat. Nobody really likes you, but you're kind of fun to have around anyway."

There are not that many US troops left in Germany and it was the Italians who were upset by the US presence and expansion of some US bases in Italy in light of the Cavalese cable car disaster.

that's true, here there are also movements that protest against the US military bases in italy (in particular are famous the "no muos" protesters, that protest against the construction of 3 big parabolic parabolic antennas used for telecommunication by the US navy in sicily. that's they site No MUOS)
It's also true that a lot of people are still upset because of the Cavalese disaster, and a lot of other things.

but i'm sure that the most of italians still consider the US as allied.

about the enemies, it's not in the italian spirit to declare openly which are our enemies, we usually try to be diplomatic with everyone...
