“Many of them are not doing enough, or are doing nothing at all,” Carter said in an interview with CNBC on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
“We can do a lot ourselves … (but) we are looking for other people to play their part,” he added, without singling any country out.
In a separate interview with Bloomberg TV, Carter called the anti-IS alliance a “so-called” coalition, highlighting frustrations the Pentagon has with some partners — particularly Sunni Arab nations — not doing enough.
“We need others to carry their weight, there should be no free riders,” he said.
Carter has spent the past week in Europe, primarily in Paris, where he sought to persuade allies to step up their efforts against the IS group.
He is meeting with representatives from another 26 allied nations next month to make the same appeal." rawstory
Reality is a bitch.
The Borg has never accepted the idea that our "friends and allies" have their own agendas and for very few of them the idea of actually fighting IS is an agenda item. The Borg has never wanted to understand that a lot of the people whom we want to join us in fighting IS are actually quietly supportive of the anti-Western goals of IS. And then there is the little problem of fighting an enemy who think PWs are playthings to be beheaded, burnt alive, etc.
Yes, reality is a bitch. pl
