US President Barack Obama has outlined four key parts in a plan to “degrade and ultimately destroy” the Islamic State terrorist organisation IS in a prime time address to the United States.

The strategy includes: Air strikes in Iraq and Syria, Increased support to ground forces in the region, Drawing on counterterrorism capabilities, and Humanitarian assistance to civilians.

Obama said America will be joined by a “broad coalition of partners” in each point of the four-part plan. Secretary of State, John Kerry is currently in the Middle East recruiting partners.

He said it will take time to eradicate IS extremists but said he was offering no timetable for how long the United States will conduct air strikes against the group in Iraq and Syria.

Meanwhile, Congressional leaders have reacted to the President’s plea for help in fighting IS.

House Speaker John Boehner said president “has finally begun to make the case the nation has needed him to make for quite some time: that destroying this terrorist threat requires decisive action and must be the highest priority for the United States and other nations of the free world.

“A speech is not the same thing as a strategy, however. While the president presented a compelling case for action, many questions remain about the way in which the president intends to act,” he added.
