A PROPOSAL to name a popular Oahu beach after the first Hawaii-born US president, Barack Obama, has been withdrawn after the plan met with little enthusiasm from the public.
ALTHOUGH President Obama appears to favour a cautious approach toward Islamic State (IS), he may find himself escalating the fight with this organisation due to rhetorical factors.
Barack Obama last night pledged America will not become embroiled in another ground war in Iraq as it steps up the fight against the Islamic State.
BARACK Obama has made it clear the West will defeat the "extremist nihilism" of the Islamic State as he toughened up his stance after claims of a lack of leadership by the US president against the terror threat.
BARACK Obama has expressed revulsion at the beheading of the American journalist James Foley by a British jihadist as an international manhunt was launched to find his killer.
