From Washington, this is VOA News.

President Barack Obama prepares to tell the American people how he will lead a campaign to defeat the Islamic state group.

And U.S. lawmakers send mixed messages on what to do about the militants ahead of Mr. Obama's speech.

I'm Michael Lipin reporting from Washington.

In about three hours from now, U.S. President Barack Obama is due to present a plan for a U.S.-led military effort against Islamic State militants in the Mideast.

In the live television address, officials say Mr. Obama will describe the threat posed by the militants to U.S. national security, and how he intends to combat it.

The officials say Mr. Obama's plan may include expanding a U.S. air campaign against Islamic State targets from Iraq into neighboring Syria.

Earlier, Mr. Obama authorized $25 million in spending on providing immediate military assistance to the Iraqi government and its Iraqi Kurdish allies.

U.S. lawmakers have been speaking out about the Islamic State militants ahead of Mr. Obama's speech.

VOA's Michael Bowman has more from Capitol Hill.

As the president prepared to address the nation, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid urged colleagues not to prejudge Mr. Obama's message.

"Would it not be a good idea for us just to stand back a little bit and see what the president of the United States has to say tonight? Let us allow him to speak to our country, to our fellow citizens, and lay out his plan."

Lawmakers are keenly aware that many U.S. voters are war-weary, yet alarmed by Islamic State radicals. Republican Senator Ted Cruz:

"We are tired of sending our sons and daughters potentially to die in distant lands. No one wants to see an extended engagement in Iraq.”

This is VOA News.

Leaders of Washington's Muslim community have condemned the violent extremism of the Islamic State militant group.

They made the condemnation at a gathering on Wednesday, honoring the victims of the September 11th, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States.

The American Muslim leaders have urged their fellow Muslims in the United States to counter extremism with intervention programs, and to cooperate with U.S. law enforcement to prevent people from turning to violence.

You can listen to President Obama's remarks on how he will deal with Islamic State militants live on our website at VOANews.com.

Our coverage begins at midnight-30 Universal Time on Thursday.

An American charitable group, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, says it will provide $50 million to aid workers fighting a growing Ebola outbreak in West Africa.

The Seattle-based foundation says it will immediately give funds to the United Nations and international aid agencies to purchase badly needed supplies and support emergency operations in affected countries.

The foundation also says it will work with partners to speed up the development of Ebola therapies, vaccines and diagnostic tests.

South African running star Oscar Pistorius is set to hear a verdict in his murder trial as proceedings resume in Pretoria on Thursday.

A judge is expected to recount evidence and testimony presented by about 40 witnesses before handing down her ruling - a process that could stretch for hours and extend into Friday.

Pistorius is accused of deliberately killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp inside his home in February 2013.

The double-amputee Olympian, known for his high-tech running blades, has said he thought he was shooting at an intruder, when he fired four shots through a locked bathroom door.

Thousands of Pakistanis fled their homes on Wednesday as monsoon flooding worsened in the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir, where a major river breached its banks.

The death toll from the flooding in Pakistan and neighboring India has climbed to at least 457.

In Pakistan's most populous province of Punjab, a government official told VOA that more than one million residents have been affected.

And British Prime Minister David Cameron is appealing to the Scottish people not to "break his heart" by voting for independence from the United Kingdom in a referendum next week.

Mr. Cameron visited the Scottish capital of Edinburgh on Wednesday, reminding Scots of their long history of close ties with England.

He said he would be heartbroken if what he calls the United Kingdom's "family of nations" is torn apart.

“也许我们应该稍安勿躁,看看总统今晚到底会说什么,让总统向全国人民发表演讲,说出他的计划。”
 
国会议员们敏锐地感觉到许多美国选民厌恶战争,不过十分警惕伊斯兰国的激进分子。众议院议员泰德·科鲁兹表示:
 
“我们已经厌倦了将我国子民送往遥远的他国,冒着随时牺牲的危险。所有人都不想见到美国再同伊拉克发生纠葛。”
