There&rsquo;s a real risk to the stability and security of societies, as governments are increasingly challenged to not only control Ebola but to provide basic health services and other government functions. The stability of these countries and their economies, as well as those of their neighbors and of others, is at increasing risk.</p> <p>Ebola is the most recent tragic example of why it is imperative to work together to make the world safer from infectious disease outbreaks. Ebola is precisely the kind of health threat the Global Health Security Agenda could have prevented. We and our partner countries have agreed to work together so that effective prevention, detection, and response mechanisms are present in every country around the world.</p> <p><a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2014/09/26/ebola-requires-world-s-united-action" target="_blank">read more</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-link field-field-url"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Story URL:&nbsp;</div> <a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2014/09/26/ebola-requires-world-s-united-action" target="_blank">http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2014/09/26/ebola-requires-world-s-united-action</a> </div> </div> </div> Cameroon democratic republic of congo Dr. Tom Frieden Foreign Policy Global development Health Care Kenya Morocco Obama Delivers Official South Africa Tanzania The President Tom Frieden Uganda United States Vietnam West Africa White House Fri, 26 Sep 2014 13:56:56 +0000 feed 334592 at http://newsmotion.org President Obama to the International Community: We Must Do More to Fight Ebola http://newsmotion.org/feed-story-en/president-obama-international-community-we-must-do-more-fight-ebola <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> President Obama to the International Community: We Must Do More to Fight Ebola </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datetime field-field-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Thu, 09/25/2014</span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p></p> <p class="rteright"><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQY0KjevwAg">Watch on YouTube</a></p> <p>The Ebola outbreak afflicting West African countries is now an epidemic of unprecedented proportions.

Make sure you&#39;re <a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/email-updates">signed up to receive updates</a> from the White House and senior Administration officials.</p> <p>Good afternoon,</p> <p>Each and every year, the world&#39;s leaders gather in New York for a session of the United Nations General Assembly. Earlier today, President Obama spoke to them directly in an address that warrants the attention not only of those leaders, but of all Americans. It was clear, candid, and compelling. The President talked about the world as it is, and the world as we all hope it can be.</p> <p>The President said that, for all the hard-won progress we see in the world, there is also what he today called a &quot;pervasive unease.&quot;</p> <p>A deadly Ebola outbreak ravaging West Africa, Russian aggression in Ukraine, and the group of medieval murdering terrorists known as ISIL, which, left unchecked, could pose a growing threat beyond the region -- including our homeland.</p> <p>So when President Obama addressed the leaders of more than 140 nations this morning, he posed two fundamental questions that will help define both the world&#39;s future and our own: Can the major powers set aside their differences and meet their responsibilities as leaders? And can the world reject the cancer of violent extremism?</p> <p><a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2014/09/24/choosing-hope-president-obama-s-address-united-nations">The President knows the answer is yes -- if we make it so. The way he answers these questions is an important illustration of the principles we stand for as Americans, and a window into the future we look to help build.

This plan is part of the President’s comprehensive counter-terrorism strategy to degrade and destroy the terrorist group, and does not commit our troops to fighting another ground war. America, working with a broad coalition of nations, will continue to train, equip, advise, and assist our partners in the region in the battle against ISIL.</p> <p>In the coming week, the President will speak at the United Nations General Assembly and continue to lead the world against terror, a fight in which all countries have a stake.</p> <p></p> <p><a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2014/09/20/weekly-address-world-united-fight-against-isil">Transcript</a> | <a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/WeeklyAddress/2014/092014-JGFDSW/092014_WeeklyAddress.mp4">mp4</a> | <a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/WeeklyAddress/2014/092014-JGFDSW/092014_WeeklyAddress.mp3">mp3</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-link field-field-url"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Story URL:&nbsp;</div> <a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2014/09/20/weekly-address-world-united-fight-against-isil" target="_blank">http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2014/09/20/weekly-address-world-united-fight-agai...</a> </div> </div> </div> <a href= Barack Obama Counterterrorism David Hudson Foreign Policy isil Lawrence Jackson Official The President Weekly Address White House Sat, 20 Sep 2014 10:00:00 +0000 feed 333239 at http://newsmotion.org Standing United Against ISIL: "We're Strongest as a Nation When the President and Congress Work Together" http://newsmotion.org/feed-story-en/standing-united-against-isil-were-strongest-nation-when-president-and-congress-work-to <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Standing United Against ISIL: &quot;We&#039;re Strongest as a Nation When the President and Congress Work Together&quot; </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datetime field-field-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Thu, 09/18/2014</span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p></p> <p class="rteright"><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ol413ul69Jg">Watch on YouTube</a></p> <p>In a bipartisan vote, the House and Senate passed a Continuing Resolution that supports the U.S. military effort to train and equip moderate Syrian opposition forces so they can take the fight to the terrorist force ISIL.</p> <p>At the White House tonight, <a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2014/09/18/statement-president-congressional-authorization-train-syrian-opposition">President Obama delivered a statement</a> to clearly outline these efforts and to thank Congress for standing united in our efforts to degrade and ultimately defeat ISIL.</p> <blockquote><p>I believe that we&rsquo;re strongest as a nation when the President and Congress work together.
