[Washington DC]President Obama Congratulates Belgium+France Over Paris Suspect Arrest&Commends Security Services
President Barack Obama spoke by phone with Belgian PM Charles Michel and French President Francois Hollande to congratulate them on the arrest in Brussels of Salah Abdeslam, a suspect in the November 13, 2015 ISIL terrorist attacks in Paris, France.
The President commended the work of Belgian security services and noted that this significant arrest was the result of hard work and close cooperation between Belgian and French law enforcement authorities.
The President reiterated that the United States stands together with Belgium and France in our shared struggle against the scourge of terrorism and once again pledged the full cooperation and support of the United States in these efforts, reaffirming our shared commitment to degrading and destroying ISIL.
Minutes after the Paris attack, US officials were in close touch with national security and law enforcement officials in France and Belgium as they take steps to try to protect their country,
Abdeslam, 26, one of the most wanted men in Europe, was captured in Brussels yesterday during a raid by armed police, according to French police.
Abdeslam is believed to have played a key role in the November 13 attacks claimed by the Islamic State (ISIS) group that left 130 people dead.
[Washington DC] President Barack Obama Reitereted That US Will Destroy Terrorist Islamic State .Asserting that the ISIS does not speak for Islam, Obama urged Islamic leaders across the world to speak out against the terrorist outfit and its ideology.
Asserting that the US will “destroy” Islamic State, President Barack Obama today sought to reassure terror-struck Americans that the country would overcome a “new phase” of threat but ruled out sending large scale troops on the ground to defeat the terror group.
In a rare address to the nation from his Oval Office of the White House aimed at calming a jittery country after a mass shooting in California that killed 14 Americans, Obama said the threat from terrorism is real, but the US will overcome it.
Obama said his strategy to destroy ISIS is designed and supported by US military commanders and counter-terrorism experts, together with 65 countries that have joined an American-led coalition targeting the terror outfit.
He Said “We will destroy ISIL (another name for ISIS) and any other organisation that tries to harm us. Our success won’t depend on tough talk, or abandoning our values or giving into fear. That’s what groups like ISIL are hoping for. Instead, we will prevail by being strong and smart, resilient and relentless. And by drawing upon every aspect of American power,”
In his speech, Obama once again ruled out sending large scale troops on the ground.
President Said “We should not be drawn once more into a long and costly ground war in Iraq or Syria. That’s what groups like ISIL want. They know they can’t defeat us on the battlefield. ISIL fighters were part of the insurgency that we faced in Iraq,”
“But they also know that if we occupy foreign lands, they can maintain insurgencies for years, killing thousands of our troops and draining our resources, and using our presence to draw new recruits,”
President added “The strategy that we are using now — air strikes, special forces and working with local forces who are fighting to regain control of their own country — that is how we’ll achieve a more sustainable victory, and it won’t require us sending a new generation of Americans overseas to fight and die for another decade on foreign soil,”
Obama described the California incident in which a radicalised couple — Pakistani national Tashfeen Malik, and her husband, Syed Rizwan Farook, of Pakistani-origin — killed 14 people in San Bernardino as an “act of terrorism”.
Noting that over the last few years the terrorist threat has evolved into a “new phase”, Obama said, “As groups like ISIL grew stronger amidst the chaos of war in Iraq and then Syria, and as the internet erases the distance between countries, we see growing efforts by terrorists to poison the minds of people like the Boston Marathon bombers and the San Bernardino killers.”

[Washington D C]Barack Obama Reiterates,barbaric ISIL Is a Threat to World Peace
American President Barack Obama Joined International Military Leaders and Discussed Coalition Efforts Against ISIL
President Obama met with more than 20 foreign chiefs of defense for this burning cause
President Obama participates in this meeting hosted by Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, with more than 20 foreign chiefs of defense to discuss the coalition efforts in the ongoing campaign against New Terrorist Group ISIL.
Gen. Lloyd J. Austin III, Commander, U.S. Central Command also participated in the meeting at Joint Base Andrews, Maryland, Oct. 14, 2014.
President Obama traveled to Joint Base Andrews, just outside of Washington, D.C., to attend this meeting
At the meeting, leaders discussed the progress in the coalition’s efforts to date. In his remarks after the meeting with DoD leaders, the President said that destroying ISIL “remains a difficult mission,” and made clear that it won’t happen overnight.
“The good news,” he said, “is that there is a broad-based consensus not just in the region but among nations of the world that ISIL is a threat to world peace, security and order, that their barbaric behavior has to be dealt with.”
60 partners and nations have joined the coalition to combat ISIL. Allies are contributing in a number of ways, including:
Flying sorties (combat missions by individual aircraft) in support of coalition airstrikes — nine countries have flown sorties so far, including five Arab partners in Syria
Sending arms and assistance to Iraqi security forces and the Syrian opposition and sharing intelligence
Providing billions of dollars in humanitarian aid for the victims of conflict in the region
This meeting follows two additional meetings President Obama had at the Pentagon last Wednesday — one with Defense Department leadership on ISIL+ Ebola, global security+ defense budget+follow-up meeting with the National Security Council on the implementation of the U.S. strategy to counter ISIL.
[WASHINGTON, DC]America continues to lead and stand strong against terror.
President Barack Obama Reiterated His Commitment For Down gradation And Destruction Of Terrorist Group ISIL.
In His weekly address, the President Obama reiterated his comprehensive and sustained counter-terrorism strategy to degrade and ultimately destroy the terrorist group ISIL.
Obama,s plan brings together a campaign of targeted airstrikes+increased support for Iraqi and Kurdish forces already taking on terrorists+assistance from allies and partners+ expanded efforts to train and equip the Syrian opposition+ and ongoing humanitarian aid for those displaced by ISIL.
The President expressed his immense appreciation for the military men and women who make these efforts possible, and reminded the world that America continues to lead and stand strong against terror.
“As Commander in Chief, my highest priority is the security of the American people. And I’ve made it clear that those who threaten the United States will find no safe haven.
Thanks to our military and counterterrorism professionals, we took out Osama bin Laden, much of al Qaeda’s leadership in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and leaders of al Qaeda affiliates in Yemen and Somalia. We’ve prevented terrorist attacks, saved American lives and made our homeland more secure.
Today, the terrorist threat is more diffuse, from al Qaeda affiliates and other extremists—like ISIL in Syria and Iraq. As I said this week, our intelligence community has not yet detected specific ISIL plots against our homeland. But its leaders have repeatedly threatened the United States. And, if left unchecked, these terrorists could pose a growing threat beyond the Middle East, including to the United States. So we’re staying vigilant. And we’re moving ahead with our strategy to degrade and ultimately destroy this terrorist organization.
To meet a threat like this, we have to be smart. We have to use our power wisely. And we have to avoid the mistakes of the past. American military power is unmatched, but this can’t be America’s fight alone. And the best way to defeat a group like ISIL isn’t by sending large numbers of American combat forces to wage a ground war in the heart of the Middle East. That wouldn’t serve our interests. In fact, it would only risk fueling extremism even more.”
कोई भी धर्म निर्दोष लोगों की हत्य का सन्देश नहीं देता इसीलिए “इस्लामिक राज्य” इस्लामिक नहीं है यह केवल निरंकुश आतंकवादियों एक समूह मात्र है| संयुक्त राज्य अमेरिका पूरी शक्ति और दृढ़ संकल्प के साथ इस खतरे का सामना करेगा |यह भावुक सन्देश अमेरिका के राष्ट्रपति बराक ओबामा ने दिया |राष्ट्रपति ने राष्ट्र को दिए सम्बोधन में कहा कि कोई भी धर्म निर्दोष लोगों की हत्या का सन्देश नहीं देता और आईएसआईएलISIL का इस्लामिक स्टेट एक राज्य नहीं है.यह किसी भी सरकार द्वारा मान्यता प्राप्त नहीं है|
यह अपने रास्ते में खड़े सभी का वध करने के अलावा अन्य लक्ष्य के साथ एक आतंकवादी संगठन है .
प्रेसिडेंट ने बताया कि पहले से ही सैन्य इराक में आईएसआईएल ठिकानों के खिलाफ पिछले एक महीने से अधिक 150 से अधिक सफल हवाई हमले का आयोजन कियाजा चूका गया
अमेरिकी कर्मियों और सुविधाओं की रक्षा की गई है इन हमलों में आईएसआईएल के सैकड़ों आतंकवादी मारे गए, और निर्दोष पुरुषों+बच्चो+ महिलाओं की जान बचाने में मदद की गई
प्रेजेंट ने आतंकवाद के खिलाफ अपनी रणनीति पर प्रकाश डालते हुए बताया कि सबसे पहले, हम इन आतंकवादियों के खिलाफ हवाई हमले के एक व्यवस्थित अभियान का संचालन करेंगे|
इराकी सरकार के साथ काम करते हुए, हम इराकी बलों अपराध पर जाने के रूप में आईएसआईएल लक्ष्यों को हिट करने के लिए हमारे अपने लोगों की सुरक्षा से परे हमारे प्रयासों का विस्तार करेंगे. .
दूसरा, हम जमीन पर इन आतंकवादियों को सेना से लड़ने के लिए हमारे समर्थन में वृद्धि होगी. हम इराकी और कुर्द सुरक्षा बलों का समर्थन करने के लिए इराक के लिए एक अतिरिक्त 475 सेवा के सदस्यों को भेज देंगे|.
ये अमेरिकी सेना एक लड़ाई मिशन नहीं होगा.लेकिन वे प्रशिक्षण,खुफिया, और उपकरणों के साथ इराकी और कुर्द ताकतों का समर्थन करने की जरूरत है
तीसरा, , हम अपने सहयोगियों के साथ कार्य करना. आईएसआईएल हमलों को रोकने के लिए हमारे पर्याप्त आतंकवाद क्षमताओं पर आकर्षित करने के लिए जारी रहेगा+हम अपने गढ़ को मजबूत बनाने+हमारे खुफिया+ विकृत विचारधारा का मुकाबला करने के लिए हमारे प्रयासों को बढ़ाना होगा |
और चौथा, हम इस आतंकवाद संगठन द्वारा विस्थापित निर्दोष नागरिकों को मानवीय सहायता प्रदान करने के लिए जारी रहेगा. यह सुन्नी और शिया इस आतंक का खामियाजा उठाना पड़ा है जो मुसलमानों के साथ ही ईसाई और अन्य धार्मिक अल्पसंख्यकों के हजारों शामिल हैं.
प्रेसिडेंट ने कहा कि उन्हें आईएसआईएल से खतरे का पता करने का अधिकार है. लेकिन चूंकि राष्ट्रपति और कांग्रेस के साथ काम करते हैं, इसलिए अमेरिका के इस खतरे से भिड़ने में एकजुट हो रहे हैं दुनिया को दिखाने के क्रम में इस प्रयास का समर्थन करने के लिए कांग्रेस कार्रवाई का स्वागत करते हैं|
इस मिशन इराक और अफगानिस्तान में युद्ध की तरह नहीं होगा. यह विदेशी धरती पर लड़ रहे अमेरिकी लड़ाकू सैनिकों को शामिल नहीं किया जाएगा. इस प्रयास के सामने लाइनों पर अपने भागीदारों का समर्थन करते हुए, हमें कोई खतरा आतंकवादियों से बाहर ले जाने के लिए एक स्थिर और सतत दृष्टिकोण होगा.
यह अपने सबसे अच्छे रूप में अमेरिकी नेतृत्व है: हम अपनी स्वतंत्रता के लिए लड़ने वाले लोगों के साथ खड़े हैं.
American President Barack Obama Says “Jim Foley’s Life Stands in Stark Contrast to His Killers”

The President made clear that Foley’s life “stands in stark contrast to his killers” — and reiterated that the U.S. will continue to do whatever is necessary to protect the American people.
