Barack Obama says the war against the Islamic State is going pretty well:

PP_IslamicStateofIraqandLevantISIL_2014-01-07-38db02f6Altogether, ISIL has lost more than a quarter of the populated areas that it had seized in Iraq. In Syria, ISIL lost at Kobani…. In short, ISIL’s recent losses in both Syria and Iraq prove that ISIL can and will be defeated.

In fact, it’s going so damn well that we have to fight even harder than first thought – and that goes for Australia, too:

Indeed, we’re intensifying our efforts against ISIL’s base in Syria… This continues to be a challenge, and, working together, all our nations are going to need to do more…

And Obama has finally dropped that nothing-to-do-with-Islam patter, and is sounding an awful lot like the Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott now – the Abbott who is constantly attacked by the media Left:

But around the world, we’re also going to insist on partnering with Muslim communities as they seek security, prosperity and the dignity that they deserve. And we’re going to expect those communities to step up in terms of pushing back as hard as they can, in conjunction with other people of goodwill, against these hateful ideologies in order to discredit them more effectively, particularly when it comes to what we’re teaching young people. And this larger battle for hearts and minds is going to be a generational struggle …  It’s going to be up to Muslim communities, including scholars and clerics, to keep rejecting warped interpretations of Islam, and to protect their sons and daughters from recruitment.
