The rest of the Top 10 don't have any active majority or governmental animosity towards us.
The countries that really don't like us have primarily have Oil trade with Russia.
Crude Oil and Total Petroleum Imports Top 15 Countries

Regardless of their official "friendliness" status, Saudi Arabia has a large, growing and.. ahem.. active minority animosity towards us, and their government tolerates, if not encourages, terrorist training camps (unlike, say, Iraq.) The Nigerian government certainly is doing no good to its people with the money we send it, and I think we already send enough money and jobs to Mexico.

And those average 652,000 barrels a day we import from Iraq, those are free, right? The war's paying for itself with free oil like I was promised, right?
