Obama vows to destroy ISIS to overcome terrorism threat

Mon, Dec 07, 2015, 10:16 AM
Washington, Dec 7: In a rare address from his Oval office, President Barack Obama pledged to overcome the threat of terrorism by destroying ISIS with a relentless, strong and smart campaign that is consistent with American values.

"The threat from terrorism is real, but we will overcome it," Obama said Sunday night in a prime-time address four days after a Pakistani origin couple shot dead 14 people and wounded 21 others in San Bernardino, California to leave Americans unnerved.

"We will destroy ISIL and any other organization that tries to harm us," he said, using an alternate acronym for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), as he urged Congress to take action on several fronts.

At the same time, he asked Americans not to turn against Muslim friends and neighbours and turn the conflict with ISIS into a war against Islam.

It was only the third time that Obama was addressing the nation from his office in the White House to reflecting the gravity of the situation.
