Obama vows Syria air strikes to destroy Islamic State

US President Barack Obama delivers a prime time address from the Cross Hall of the White House on September 10, 2014 in Washington, DCUS President Barack Obama on Wednesday ordered a “relentless” war against the Islamic State, including air strikes in Syria and expanded operations in Iraq to “destroy” the marauding jihadist army. Obama — who hoped to go down in history for ending wars, not starting an open-ended escalation in the Middle East — also pledged to bolster Iraqi forces and increase military assistance to Syria’s opposition. In a prime-time televised address, Obama said the Islamic State, which beheaded two US journalists and seized a swathe of land in Iraq and Syria, was a uniquely brutal group even by the blood-soaked standards of the Middle East.
