Why John 'Dubya' Howard debases himself before the real Dubya: "Howard wants Australians to see the corollary of this - that in times of threat to Australia, the US will be its guarantor. He reminded Bush that Australians would never forget that the US, during World War II, stood between Australia and potential conquest: the unspoken but clear message was the Australians would expect no less in any future threat."

This 'security guarantee' is a delusion, or perhaps merely a deception of the public. States act in their 'national interest', not out of loyalty or reciprocity or some other foolish conception which they will be glad to cultivate in their vassals but can have no intention of acting upon themselves.
