Biden says US will 'wipe out' evil of IS jihadists

US Vice President Joe Biden said on Monday Washington was going to have to “squeeze the heart of” the Islamic State group in Syria and Iraq to wipe it out. “We have to squeeze the heart of Daesh in Iraq and Syria so they can’t continue to pump the poison in the region and the rest of the world,” he said, using an Arab acronym for IS. “This fight is going to take time, but we are committed to seeing it through until we wipe out this evil — and we will wipe out this evil,” Biden said.
