Obama pledges to defeat ISIS without the use of ground troops, or aid, or extensive diplomacy

24 Sep

NEW YORK—in his speech to the United Nations today, President Obama vowed to “crush ISIS with immediate and overwhelming force,” ruling out nothing except troops on the ground, a lot of money, anything that might expose Americans to risk, or take too much time.

As he noted in his speech, he was willing to use every other tool at his disposal, which include limited airstrikes, angry-sounding speeches, and “the healing power of dance.”

The world leaders in attendance applauded the speech vigorously, noting afterwards in interviews that “it really takes the pressure off us if no one else is doing anything, either.”

A somber-faced spokesman for ISIS noted that periodic US drone strikes on its fighters posed a grave threat to the organization, “because one thing hard to find in the Middle East is a supply of angry young men without much to lose.”
