After loudly insisting on the need for a comprehensive debate before a decision can be made on joining the international mission against Islamic extremists in the Middle East, both opposition parties indicated Friday — before the promised debate takes place — that they will oppose the mission. – National Post
Just over two weeks after U.S. President Barack Obama vowed“America will lead a broad coalition to roll back this terrorist threat” posed by ISIS, more than 50 countries have signed up, so far, to support the fight.
They include new entrants Belgium, Denmark and Britain, which will all send fighter jets to Iraq to assist that nation’s government and the United States in the anti-ISIS military campaign.
Even the foreign minister of Russia — which has butted heads repeatedly with Washington, including over whether the President of neighboring war-torn Syria needs to go — signaled Friday his country is ready to back Iraq in fighting terrorists, “above all the Islamic State,” which is what ISIS calls itself.
Most members of the anti-ISIS coalition have restricted their support to Iraq-focused efforts. A handful of Arab nations, however, have joined Washington in going after ISIS, from the air, in Syria. – CNN
So there you go… All alone. Par for the course for Fife though.
