I find the tally for India to be very surprising, considering that they're considered close allies for us. That may start changing. In the past they often sided with Arab/Muslim states because they saw that to their tactical advantage being in the midst of so many Muslim countries. Well, surprise, surprise guess who the Arabs/Muslims sided with on Jammu and Kashmir. India has now begun rethinking that perspective and you may see a change in the future.

Another country stands out because it often does side with the U.S. Now, which country could that be? Hmm...

You may have guessed...

Israel voted against the U.S. 11% of the time. The next lowest figure is that of the U.K. at 40%. Too bad we're the only country that can't sit on the Security Council. The U.S. would be much more successful there if we did have a turn. Libya is now the Chair.
