12 Times America Shamelessly Stabbed Its Allies in the Back

America is still a fairly young country and fought tooth and nail to gain its independence. American troops today are well-trained and ready to die for their countrymen in war, which, like it or not, has been a part of American history since the beginning.

Along the way, some hearts have been broken because when America wants something, it does whatever it takes to get it.  Sometimes this means betraying an ally. The following are the most famous instances of America betraying its allies.  Number 9 was the most shocking!

Naval battles ensued until France and America called a truce.
