Obama vows to fight ISIS after execution of 2nd American

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – President Barack Obama vowed to fight the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, until it is no longer a threat.

“So the bottom line is this – our objective is clear and that is to degrade and destroy ISIS so it’s no longer a threat, not just to Iraq, but also to the region and to the United States,” said the president.

Speaking at a press conference in Estonia, Obama’s remarks came in reaction to a video released by ISIS on Tuesday that showed the beheading of another U.S. journalist.

Journalist Steven Sotloff was the second American hostage executed by ISIS in the past two weeks in retaliation for U.S. air strikes in Iraq.

While there is still no official announcement of a White House strategy against ISIS in Syria, President Obama said he is sending Secretary of State John Kerry with a team to the Middle East to work with regional partners on ways to battle ISIS.

“We will not be intimidated,” said the president. “Their horrific acts only unite us as a country and stiffen our resolve to take the fight against these terrorists – and those who make the mistake of harming Americans will learn that we will not forget, and that our reach is long, and that justice will be served.”

To deal with the growing ISIS threat, more U.S. troops are heading to Iraq.

President Barack Obama authorized a request for 350 additional troops in Iraq. The White House says the troops will help protect American diplomatic facilities and personnel in Baghdad.

The additional forces will beef-up security at the U.S. embassy in Baghdad’s Green Zone, where the family members of Iraqi soldiers stormed Iraqi parliament on Tuesday.

More than 100 people clashed with security, demanding more information about their loved ones at Camp Speicher which was overrun by ISIS forces in June.

    Barack Hussein Obama and ISIS are one and the same. They both serve the same master (Satan) and both seek the same end (destruction of Christianity and the United States). May Barack Hussein Obama and ISIS burn in hell for all eternity, along with all of the evil Liberals who support them both.

    Obama tells the nation he has no plan. Then he gives a speech and says the plan is to destroy them. Then during the same speech he says the plan is to “degrade them and make them manageable. Now Biden is on the stump saying the plan is to follow ISIS to the gates of hell.

    Has anyone stopped to think that Obama is one of them? In his books and in past speeches he made its clear that He will stand with Islam if the going gets rough. Just step back and watch what he does. When it comes to anything Muslim he does virtually nothing. But when it comes to American Citizens and LEGAL aliens he goes after them with a vengeance. We now have two journalists recently beheaded.

    Obama has done absolutely nothing about any of them. We have an active member of the military in a Mexican jail and Obama hasn’t even mentioned his name. In my opinion Sultan Barack is doing exactly what he was placed here by enemies of our country to do and is getting away with it. He is methodically destroying our country, our government, our Constitution, our national defense, our economy and our way of life. I sincerely hope the stupid uninformed people who voted for him are proud and happy with what they’ve done to help destroy our country and all it once stood for.

    obozo, biden and all the demonic full of crap party are loaded with cheap hardline talks, while ISIS are simply just laughing at supposed to be the leaders of the USA. the islamist terrorist groups do not see obozo as a leader, instead either a weakling pretending commander in chief who is really a pro muslim. to that end the rest of the leaders of the free world are all laughing the same way as ISIS, meaning the USA leaders are not true leaders, since no leaders of the free world are going along with the USA without strategy per obummer confession on how to dissolve ISIS. historically, democrats do not scare the muslim terrorists, just look back during carter days, the american hostages of iran terrorists vowed will keep the hostages for a very, very long, long time, until reagan won, out of the blue the american hostages were released. so just what did it tell of the released of the american hostages?, simple, the muslim terrorists knew damn well their butts will be whipped to stop their breathings without mercy, to destroy their terrorist cells. this event up to bush 43rd iraq war was the beginning of the dummy liberals labelings the elephant party as war mongers. yes, indeed the liberals are by nature morons, believing to handle enemies, the like of muslim terrorists are to vow with them, like a friendly, good neighbor, spread the bad attitudes, traits of americans with too many faults like a bunch with chips on their shoulders. this is what obozo and american liberals have ingrained to the muslim world, which we all know now is a big failure, the terrorist cells are not afraid of obozo, they see him much more of a follower than a leader. the barbaric terrorist groups are like having a grand party in many blocks of the world occupying, claiming sovereign lands, by way of murdering men, women, children who are on their way, while the free world nations are watching doing nothing to stop them, except with harsh words when given the podium to speak, like obozo’s meaningless speeches on his trips abroad. obozo never learned all his talks to whack ISIS are pure cheap talks, americans are so tired listening to his rhetoric and lies of bin laden is dead, the terrorists are all on the run. REALLY?. ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!.

    I can’t believe the ignorance that Kuya, Delia & Noz are spouting.

    I am sorry that those Reporters got beheaded, but the cold hard fact is that they were warned not to go into that region. They went anyway in search of a story. It’s not the President’s fault they got beheaded. All you war mongers out there put on a uniform and go fight. President Bush went into Iraq as a war of choice. Remember? Weapons of mass destruction? Where are they? Saddam was a bad person and deserved every inch of rope he got and then some; but that wasn’t our war. Poppa Bush told his son not to go to war in Iraq but he did anyway. When we left Iraq we left them a completely armed military; and what did they do at the first sign of trouble? They abandoned there arms and equipment and ran. When will the US ever learn, you don’t step into the middle of a religious war. It is a no win situation for the US.

    I said this before and I’ll say it again. You folks act like it’s President Obama’s fault because we have an open border. The truth is that no President has done anything about the border in 38+ years. President Reagan (a Republican) granted amnesty to 6 million illegals and that started the ball rolling. Which leads me to another point. ISIS is not an immediate threat to the the United States, so quit fear mongering. They don’t have ships nor do they have any planes. If they US does it jobs at its land borders, seaports and airports then Americans have nothing to worry about.

    Remember it was a Muslims who did the Oklahoma City bombing, or Columbine Shootings, or Sandy Hook shooting, or Centennial Park bombing, just to name a few. It was good ole Americans. So are Americans terrorist? Are Americans radicals? I believe in protecting the United States and that begins with keeping our nose out of other peoples business and stop trying to be the world policemen.

      you are the illiterate……..the iraq war was the answer to 09-11-01 terror attack. c powell now the lover boy of obozo testified in congress about iraq’s WMD, so congress approved the iraq war, while your lover boy obozo’s afghanistan war was his executive order, bypassing congress. you are like a schizo with your manufactured thoughts translated in black and white. how in the hell bush 41st got into the iraq war scenario, you sure are exposing yourself a fabricator idiot. what history book did you read that?, the school of hard knocks?. do your own research, if you have the intelligence to do so – your donkey created more wars than the elephant, so you belong to war mongers fool. the rest of your blah, blah, are all made up by your without common sense within your empty skull, which i already debunked.
