Obama on ISIS in Syria: 'Not America's Fight Alone'

We can only hope.


President Barack Obama spoke on the airstrikes launched Monday night by the U.S. and five Arab countries against Islamic State targets in eastern Syria, saying "this is not America's fight alone."

"America's proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with these nations on behalf of our common security," Obama said, noting over 40 nations have offered to help.

Obama said the U.S. will move forward with a plan to train and equip the Syrian opposition, noting that plan of action is "supported by bipartisan majorities in Congress."
