Coalitions, Obama, and Ebola

Posted by madjillmom on September 21, 2014

President Obama announce a coalition (0f the confused) to fight ISIL about 10 days ago. He said the large coalition was doing great things. Turns out the coalition is kinda secret, and doing kinda secret minor things. I would like a list of the coalition countries and just exactly what they are doing. At least France has sent one bomber to the fight but that is about all we know. John Kerry is still working on it. Obama spoke of it as a done deal with billions of dollars in help flooding in:

“So this is our strategy. And in each of these four parts of our strategy, America will be joined by a broad coalition of partners. Already, allies are flying planes with us over Iraq; sending arms and assistance to Iraqi security forces and the Syrian opposition; sharing intelligence; and providing billions of dollars in humanitarian aid. Secretary Kerry was in Iraq today meeting with the new government and supporting their efforts to promote unity. And in the coming days he will travel across the Middle East and Europe to enlist more partners in this fight, especially Arab nations who can help mobilize Sunni communities in Iraq and Syria, to drive these terrorists from their lands. This is American leadership at its best: We stand with people who fight for their own freedom, and we rally other nations on behalf of our common security and common humanity.”

Now Obama is sending troops to fight Ebola. Where is the coalition to fight Ebola. Where are the other African nations? Where is the UN? Where is a 4 country coalition to fight this scourge? Seems like it is just us again. Seems that Ebola is a big concern for us but not the rest of the world.
