Obama says tackling Iraq's insurgency will take time
By Michael Georgy BAGHDAD (Reuters) - President Barack Obama said on Saturday U.S. air strikes had destroyed arms that Islamic State militants could have used against Iraqi Kurds, but he warned there was no quick fix to a crisis that threatens to tear Iraq apart. Speaking before U.S. warplanes struck militant targets for the second straight day, Obama said it would take more than bombs to restore stability, and criticized Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki's Shi'ite-led government for failing to empower Iraq's Sunnis. This is going to take some time," Obama told a news conference in Washington. Shortly after Obama spoke, U.S. aircraft hit armored vehicles and other Islamic State targets in an area where militants pose an imminent threat to religious minorities, the U.S. Central Command said.
