  Allies - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In general, allies are people or groups that have joined an alliance and are working together to achieve some common purpose.
Similarly, when the term is used in the context of war or armed struggle, a formal military alliance is not required for being perceived as an ally co-belligerence, to fight alongside someone, is enough.
Yet another meaning of 'allies' is found in the books of Carlos Castaneda, describing a race of non-human but human-appearing beings which inhabit the earth, and only infrequently interfere with human endeavors.

 The Seattle Times: Nation & World: Report says U.S. allies aided al-Qaida
WASHINGTON — The governments of Pakistan and Saudi Arabia helped set the stage for the Sept. 11 attacks by cutting deals with the Taliban and Osama bin Laden that allowed his al-Qaida terror network to flourish, according to several senior members of the Sept. 11 commission and U.S. counter-terrorism officials.
The financial aid to the Taliban and other assistance by two of the most important U.S. allies in the U.S.-declared war on terrorism date at least to 1996 and appear to have helped immunize them from al-Qaida attacks within their own borders until long after the 2001 strikes, those officials said in interviews.
As such, the findings could renew the debate over whether Saudi Arabia has been as close an ally of the United States as it claims, or a monarchy that for years clandestinely tried to appease both Washington and bin Laden.

 Propaganda Postcards of the Great War, Allied Powers
The Entente Cordiale was the public and popular name for the Anglo-French agreement of 1904 and it was the basis for Great Britain's entry into the war on behalf of France and Russia, a true military mutual assistance treaty existing between the latter two countries.
The major brunt of the war effort on the Allied side was borne by France, Great Britain and her four Dominion nations, Russia, Serbia and Belgium.
While fifteen more nations joined the Allied cause during the course of the war, the only two additions that had substantive military impact on the ultimate Allied victory were the entry of the Kingdom of Italy in May 1915 and the United States in April 1917.
