    Perhaps I could suggest a Coalition of the Idle for this task John? You and Latham and Garrett might like to suggest who this should be? The logical starters would be Spain and a Latham Australia. The left need to get cracking to mobilise their allies for this important humanitarian task. We who are busy, wish you god speed.

    As noted in the update, the EU is taking some action along these lines.
