NEW YORK, Ny. -– The war against the Islamic State, or ISIS, moved from the battlefields of Syria, to New York and President Obama’s attempt at uniting nations at the United Nations.
It was the president’s annual visit to the world body, and this time, the Nobel Peace Prize recipient was asking the nations of the world to join the global fight against terrorism.
“No god condones this terror. No grievance justifies these actions. There can be no reasoning - no negotiation - with this brand of evil. The only language understood by killers like this is the language of force.”
The president also asked for international help on another war, the war on Ebola.
“We need a broader effort to stop a disease that could kill hundreds of thousands, inflict horrific suffering, destabilize economies, and move rapidly across borders.”
The president also chaired a special meeting of the UN Security Council where members approved a resolution to crack down on the movements of terrorists across international borders.
Earlier in the day, France’s president announced to the UN the murder of French tourist and mountain guide Herve Gourdel, kidnapped Sunday in Algeria by a terror group with ties to ISIS.
The group threatened to kill him if France continued its air strikes against ISIS in Iraq. And they appeared to have carried out that threat in a video posted online.
Another example of why you can’t reason with someone who doesn’t care.
