In an op ed for the New York Times that was released online on Friday night and in print on Saturday, Kerry wrote: “In a polarised region and a complicated world, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria presents a unifying threat to a broad array of countries, including the United States. What’s needed to confront its nihilistic vision and genocidal agenda is a global coalition using political, humanitarian, economic, law enforcement and intelligence tools to support military force.”
Kerry’s call was foreshadowed this week by briefings to the press about moves by the US to seek such a global effort .
Last weekend Michael McCaul, the chairman of the House of Representatives homeland security committee, called Isis “the worst threat to the US since 9/11” and said: “We need to expand air strikes so you can ultimately defeat and eliminate Isis.
“Don’t kid yourself for a second that they aren’t intent on hitting our homeland, I think the threat is very real.”
Obama told White House reporters on Thursday: “We don’t have a strategy yet.”

Meanwhile in a class room in FL a republican president read a goat book while planes crash into buildings..
My question is, why is Obama blatantly lying??
waiting to actually have a strategy and a plan in place is a better way to go about things than just jumping into a conflict in a gung-ho manner.

Well said my friend!!!! S&F for you!! LOL!!
I was going to say what in the hell does BUSH have to do with Obama's Presidency!! The Bush card is NO longer
valid and Obama needs to grow a pair and take care of business! Instead of worrying about hurting the feelings of fellow Muslims!
Thank you Right ON!
I still fail to see why IS, ISIS, ISIL.....whatever, is any concern of ours. Why are we falling for all this fear and propaganda, making us think we have to do something,
