• Liberal Networks Praise Obama’s “Broad Coalition” Against ISIS That Doesn’t Exist

    Last night during his address to the nation, President Obama confidently announced that he had gathered a “broad coalition” of nations to help combat ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

    Predictably, all three news networks ran with Obama’s words that the United States will “lead a broad coalition to roll back this terrorist threat” with friends and allies. The networks pushed and touted Obama’s so-called broad coalition.

    Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said last week that the “core coalition” includes the United States, Britain, France, Australia, Canada, Germany, Turkey, Italy, Poland and Denmark.

    However, recent reports suggest that Britain and Germany are not on board with Obama’s strategy to bomb ISIS in Syria.

    British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said Britain has no plans to launch air strikes against ISIS. “Let me be clear: Britain will not be taking part in any air strikes in Syria. We have already had that discussion in our parliament last year and we won’t be revisiting that position,” he said.

    Meanwhile, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said Germany won’t be apart of any airstrike campaign against ISIS in Syria. “To quite clear, we have not been asked to do so and neither will we do so,” Steinmeier said.

    If these reports are true and Britain and Germany are out before the first bombs have been dropped, then that brings Obama’s “broad coalition” down from nine countries to seven.

    Something tells me that won’t stop Obama’s overly-suppportive allies in the media from cheerleading his new war.
