REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – At least two U.S. allies won’t be joining President Obama’s air strikes against ISIS in Syria.

After U.S. President Barack Obama announced more military operations against Islamic state militants, Germany and Britain say they will not take part in air strikes in Syria.

The foreign ministers of the two countries say they have not been asked to join the air strikes and won’t participate even when asked.

Meanwhile, 10 Arab nations announced they’ll join Obama’s coalition.

This includes Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates.

    good these arab nations will be on board to bomb ISIS. the first of a kind, arabs will be helping the USA to wipe out their own kind, if they really what they are saying will happen. my only reservation is, why couldn’t they have done the air strike themselves way before this ISIS terror group could have easily been contained.

    too bad germany and great britain will not be helping the USA’s air strikes. looks like it has more to do with so many muslims living in europe especially the U.K. the risk is destabilizations of their respective nations, if they were to join this war against ISIS terror.

    I have to say , cant blame them for not joinning Odumbo . He is not trustworthy ,He’s great at blowing hot air out of his mouth. The idea that he’s going to act on any so called plan is just another lie. He’s probably going to go play golf with ISIS leaders.

          As usual you can understand your own words. You said you don’t trust President Onama or better “He’s not trustworthy” I asked Why? You trusted President Bush and look where that got us some 4500 dead and 30000 wounded Americans. Oh yea! Where are all those weapons of mass destruction that we went to war over? Do you remember when he said mission accomplished? Didn’t the war went on for 9 more years? afet the our allies left? You you and other warmongers like you fail to realize; is that is a religious war and there isn’t anything that we can do about it. All we have to do is protect Israel and the Kurds. Let the rest kill themselves.

            YOU’RE AN ODIOUS TOAD lol.Bush made mistakes BUT he was a fully fledged PATRIOT American ,while Obama hates America .

            In 2008, Barack Hussein Obama was an unknown. The fact that he remains so to this day to a large segment of the country, despite the every-growing laundry list of constitutional violations, excesses of power, and usurpation of Congressional authority that continue each and every day in his corrupt administration, is inexcusable. Given the damage already done to this country’s citizens, its infrastructure, its relationships with friends and enemies alike, and the decline in its power and prestige around the world, such continued blind support in the face of domestic and international realities is intolerable, and the American people are finally taking notice.

            Obamacare, the IRS scandal, Benghazi, the Border and Immigration, the lavish vacations, his MIA status whenever any crisis breaks , take your pick of these and more. They are all solely of Obama’s own making and cannot be successfully blamed on anyone else.

            Without regard to truth or reality, he says whatever he and his puppet masters think will placate, confuse, guilt or stall America so that he may complete his very intentional true task of destroying America as founded, killing the Constitution and remaking America into just another dysfunctional third-world marxist h3ll-hole of decline, death and destruction where the no-longer-free people who have survived the take-down must look to the state for whatever crumbs their elitist rulers may deign to throw their way. That is his true agenda and, so far he, (or more accurately his puppet masters and he) have been fairly successful and competent in the destruction of America.

            Yes, the Big Zero is a total disaster. But what can you expect from a fourth rate community agitator with hardly no experience in the real world.

            His Liberal Socialist cabal of dirtwads, thieves, perverts and Sodomites is the most extraordinary assemblage of corruption in our history. The Democrats really outdid themselves with the 0bama regime. The divisiveness in our nation is to a level not seen since the 1860’s. 0bama did keep his campaign promise, to “fundamentally change” our nation however. I hope that the LIVTURDS are happy and proud of the destruction this man has set in motion. His legacy will be the continued decline of America and the continued destruction of our Republic.

            @Delia ….A mistake is driving impaired, a mistake is taking the wrong coat from a a coat rack. When you get 4500 Americans dead and 30000 wounded that is a simply a bad President and murder. Your ignorance astounds me. You truly believe President Bush did was a mistake? President Obama has taken far fewer vacations then Bush. You don’t remember Katrina? What did our wonderful President Bush do then? Flight over it, while many Americans lay dying? Just because a person don’t believe in going to war ever time you warmongers want him to, doesn’t make him a bad President. So far yoy have not mention any thing that is true.

            You shill wil will never stop the blame for Bush like Obama for 6 years now . Everything spew out his mouth is someone else fault . Obama got, by his word and all not true today, 8 countries to join his coalition to stamp out ISIL,ISIS . 2 out of 8 coalition announce they wont be joinning Obama. lol . what does that tells you will , no one trust Obama .

            Bush acted at the bequest of a democrat controlled Congress. Democrats voted to give Bush the power to make war against Afghanistan and Iraq. Get your facts straight.

            The Bush administration got 48 countries to join the coalition when he needed them. Obama is such a freakin’ liar! He looks into all our faces and says he’s put together a broad coalition for fighting ISIS. In the meantime the leaders of these other countries are saying …what ? we never said we would do this or that…….Obama is such a bad president that none of our so called allies want anything to do with US militarily.

            Do you Liberal Progressives ever take responsibility for your actions ? Quit pointing fingers at past administrations, and work on cleaning your present long list dirty cesspool .
