It shows the power of example that should be followed by more countries.Such a laudable act came less than a week after he declared another war to degrade and destroy the Islamic State group through a systematic campaign of airstrikes. On Monday and Tuesday, the Pentagon announced that US fighter jets conducted five airstrikes against IS targets in Iraq, bringing the total airstrikes there to 167.There is no doubt that IS, as an extremist group, should be stopped and destroyed. But that will not be achieved with just airstrikes, which do not address the root causes.Obama dramatically escalated drone strikes in recent years, which have not only made him and the US much less popular in the world, but also become a recruitment tool for some terrorist groups. The US has since dialed down the drone strikes.The prolonged bloodshed, chaos and devastation in Iraq continue to be a daily scene 11 years after the US invasion to topple Saddam Hussein. Many people, both inside and outside Iraq, have asked whether the country is really better off today than under Saddam Hussein.As if the chaos in Iraq is not enough, the US, again in the name of spreading freedom and democracy, continued its support of regime change in the region to get rid of leaders unfriendly to the US while ignoring or even protecting dictators who are US allies.In 2011, the US and its NATO allies abused a UN Security Council resolution on a no-fly zone over Libya to topple the government.Previous Page1 2 Next PagePrevious Page1 2 Next Page8.03KRelated StoriesUS House okays Obamas plan to train Syrian rebelsObama reiterates no ground troops against ISEbola survivor: No time to waste as Obama ups aidObama OKs Syria airstrikesMost Viewed Todays Top NewsThe good, the bad, and the ugly of the USNatural partners build rapportOpposition not excluded from electionSex trade not moral but social problemScotland: An inconvenient possibilityForum TrendsWould you give money to beggars?Can cross-cultural relationships work?Do you love Beijing Opera?Is marriage worth it?Should parents push their children into marriage?How do you live green?Is foreign language learning mandatory?ColumnistsiPhone 6 spawns Chinese satireSnowden nails US lie on its economic spyingFeatured ContributorsChina, white faces and expertiseCorrection will not hinder upward trendStar BloggersPresident Xi to visit South Asia By Colin SpeakmanPresident Xi will visit three South Asian countries starting on 11 September, 2014, in alphabetical order these are India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.Sino-Indian relationship strengthensChina and India are the emerging economies of the most populous region in Asia.
