Obama and Cameron Stand United Against Terrorists

In the wake of numerous terror organizations, threats and plots, President Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron vow to work together to promote a U.S.-British alliance. This was penned in a joint op-ed published in Thursday's editions of The Times of London, printed just one week after the terrorist attacks in Paris. In addition, Obama is hosting Cameron for a working dinner on Thursday night at the White House. This might be Cameron's final trip to the USA before a hotly contested British general election on May 7.

In their piece they write, "Today we recommit ourselves to our enduring mission: protecting our peoples, safeguarding our economies and defending our values. Once more, Britain and America stand together. Once more, we need strong and determined leadership to meet the challenges of our time." They also stated that they "stand together against Russia's aggressive acts." Both leaders want to continue their efforts to increase jobs and boost both economies with a focus on "sustainable and balanced growth." About last week's terror attacks that killed 17 people in Paris, they state, "We will defeat these barbaric killers and their distorted ideology, which tries to justify the murder of innocents, whether children attending school in Peshawar, or girls forced to become suicide bombers in northern Nigeria."

Moreover, they are working to complete an EU-U.S. trade deal to greatly expand trade between both nations with the objective to support new opportunities for millions of workers throughout Europe and America. Seeing Obama and Cameron take a united front might be a positive outcome of the recent global events. It also seems reminiscent of the Bush and Blair days. A funny anecdote--Cameron was quoted two weeks ago saying that Obama calls him "Bro."
