奥巴马发表全国讲话:将彻底摧毁IS

奥巴马在白宫椭圆办公室发表全国讲话,承诺摧毁恐怖组织IS,呼吁美国人民共同面对恐怖主义威胁。

奥巴马在讲话中说,在过去几年内,恐怖主义威胁发展到了新的阶段,“来自恐怖主义的威胁是现实存在的,但我们一定会克服它”。奥巴马宣称,必须彻底摧毁IS和“其他一切想要伤害我们的组织”。
 
奥巴马称,美国将在必要时前往任何国家追捕恐怖分子。美军将会继续在全球范围内展开对恐怖组织的打击活动,包括阿富汗、伊拉克等地区。除了与欧洲盟军合作外,美国还会与土耳其政府和叙利亚当地部分军队合作。此外奥巴马坚持空袭和特种部队是美国对IS取得持续性胜利的正确战略,不会轻易卷入持久而昂贵的地面战争。
 
US President Barack Obama has made a rare prime-time address to lay out plans on how to keep Americans safe and defeat the Islamic State group. The speech comes a few days after 14 people were killed by gunmen in California. 
 
The attack happened just four days ago. Two people opened fire on an office party at a social services center for the disabled in San Bernardino, leaving 14 dead and scores more wounded. The attackers were killed in the ensuing police pursuit and shootout.

The FBI is probing the attack as an "act of terrorism." If this is proven to be terror-related, it would be the deadliest such assault on American soil since the September 11 attacks. The last time Obama gave such an address was in August 2010 to mark the end of US combat operations in Iraq.
 
Islamic State has praised the shooters, identified as Syed Farook and his Pakistani wife Tashfeen Malik, as "soldiers" of its self-proclaimed caliphate. But it stopped short of claiming outright credit for the attack. 
 
The motives of the shooters remain unclear. The seemingly quiet married couple had left their six-month-old baby with her grandmother as they went to commit mass murder on Farook's co-workers. Top security officials believe the pair had been radicalized, with investigators probing reports the 29-year-old Malik had pledged allegiance to IS in a Facebook post. But the White House and FBI both say there are no signs they were part of a larger terror group. 
 
Several relatives have voiced shock at the killing spree, and family attorneys have said the couple, while devout Muslims, were no radicals. But in an interview with Italian newspaper La Stampa published Sunday, Farook's father offered a contrasting story, saying his son approved the ideas of the Islamic State group and was fixated with Israel. 
 
Investigators suspect that Malik, who came to the US on a fiancee's visa and spent extended periods of time in both Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, may have radicalized her husband. The probe is trying to establish if she had contact with Islamic radicals in either country. 
 
House Homeland Security chair Michael McCaul said Sunday the "wildcard" was Farook's wife, Malik. Despite its leading role in overseas military actions against the Islamic State group, the US does not face a domestic jihadist threat on the scale of its European allies.
 
The California rampage, which also wounded 21, was the worst mass shooting in the US in three years.
