Tony Blair, as usual, gets the US - UK alliance right.

We're not fighting the war against terrorism because we are an ally of the United States. We are an ally of the United States because we believe in fighting this war against terrorism. We share the same objectives. We share the same values.
Blair's view also explains why Kerry's nonsense about getting the help of the French and Germans doesn't make sense. We could get their assistance only by corrupting ourselves and undermining our values.
