Washington - President Barack Obama on Tuesday called on the US Congress to pass a new authorization of force against the Islamic State militant group and to not rush into new sanctions on Iran over its disputed nuclear program.
Obama said a US led coalition of countries is stopping the advance of the group in Iraq and Syria. "I call on this Congress to show the world that we are united in this mission by passing a resolution to authorize the use of force against ISIL," Obama said in the annual State of the Union address, using another acronym for the militant group.
There is two years left to this administration.
I do not trust Obama on Iran, but I say that we take the positive signs where we can.
Those are strong words concerning the Islamic State, which represents political Islam and is thus representative of the foremost enemy of all people in the world today... although some more so than others.
I say that we hold Obama to it.
