I think it is a good idea that they sat down to chat. With the terrorist attacks on Australian soil and American soil, it is important that both countries are on the same page and working together to help stay ahead of these plans and protect civilians.

The more countries work together to spearhead ISIS and other terrorist organizations the better our chances are of eliminating the threat. If there is tension or if counties are not willing to work together then terrorist have the advantage and are harder to fight.

Good for them I say. I cannot stress enough the importance of international cooperation and joint exercises concerning the western countries and their allies in the east. If we can ensure a common goal and an international will to enforce it, we can defeat any terrorist organization and prevent any future wars and conflicts from erupting.

I had just posted in the War Against ISIS thread about news that I got today about the fight. Iran has seen the US as their enemy for years and yet they are willing to work with the US against ISIS. That is saying a lot. ISIS has achieved bringing disagreeing nations together to a common goal and belief. Guess ISIS did ONE good thing.
