President Obama’s speech at the U.N. comes only two days after airstrikes were conducted together with Arab allies against militant targets in Syria. He urged the world’s countries to join in the effort that could efficiently eradicate the warrior group that is waging a battle against democracy. Mr. Obama noted that the coalition has already set up a plan that would not only equip fighters to stand against the Islamic State, but also cut off its financial support and stop the flow of new recruits.
He also warned new recruits that they should leave the battlefield while they still have time, suggesting that the coalition will continue to strike the extremist group.
