|WASHINGTON vans sk8 hi zwart , Aug. 23 (Xinhua) -- U.S. Vice President Joseph Biden said on Saturday that the Islamic militants rampaging now in northern Iraq can be defeated without U.S. boots on the ground.
The veep's comment came as the Obama administration has started a debate over a more forceful intervention in Syria, including possible airstrikes on targets of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), whose militants have seized a vast swath of territory in northern Iraq since June.
"ISIL is far from invincible," Biden wrote in an article carried by The Washington Post. "And as we saw at the Mosul dam vans sk8 hi kopen sale , when its fighting strength is eroded, it can be routed by local forces without U.S. boots on the ground."
Iraqi and Kurdish forces joined hands in retaking the dam, Iraq 's largest, on Monday under the air cover of American warplanes.
President Barack Obama authorized limited airstrikes on ISIL targets on Aug. 7 as the militants advanced on Erbil vans sk8 hi kopen , capital of Iraq's autonomous Kurdish region, and trapped and threatened displaced civilians. He ruled out sending back U.S. combat troops, though he sent in hundreds of military advisers.
Citing victory over the Mosul dam, Biden wrote "This was the first joint operation of its kind vans old skool grijs dames kopen , and we believe it is a model to build upon."
"As Iraqis continue to make progress, we are prepared to further enhance our support for Iraq's fight against ISIL -- and will call on the international community to join Canada, Australia and our European allies in doing the same," he continued.
"This is a fight that Iraq vans old skool grijs dames , with help from America and the world, can and must win," he added. "We all have a stake in empowering moderates in Iraq to prevent a terrorist state from taking root in the heart of the Middle East."
ISIL announced the establishment of an "Islamic Caliphate" in areas under its control in Syria and Iraq in late June and changed its name to the Islamic State, threatening stability in the volatile region.
Biden again called for the formation of a unity government in Iraq vans old skool grijs , as Washington had joined in pressing Prime Minister Nuri al- Maliki, whose policies over the years were blamed for alienating Iraq's Sunnis and Kurds and giving rise to the radical militants, to step down earlier this month to make way for Haider al-Abadi to form a new government.
"Unless Iraq can do this, no amount of outside intervention will matter -- nor will it continue indefinitely vans old skool dames kopen sale ," Biden wrote. " That's why government formation is so critical."
He also called on Iraq's neighbors to "refrain from fueling sectarian divisions."
"The threat, of course, is not confined to Iraq," Biden wrote. "Addressing it will also require continued support for our partners in Jordan vans old skool dames kopen , Lebanon, the Syrian opposition and others to counter ISIL and address the flow of foreign fighters to and from the battlefield."
"We will continue to consult closely with Congress about our strategy in Iraq and the region when it comes to ISIL and the security of our people," he added. "This will be a long-term challenge."
Press reports said the Obama administration is debating about intensifying U.S. efforts in Syria to counter ISIL, including airstrikes by warplanes as in Iraq now.
Administration officials have hardened their rhetoric following the beheading of American journalist James Foley by ISIL vans old skool dames , as shown in a video released earlier this week by the group.
One of Obama's aide called Foley's killing a "terrorist attack" on the United States.
"If you come after Americans, we're going to come after you, wherever you are," Benjamin Rhodes vans old skool pro dames kopen , the president's deputy national security adviser, told reporters on Friday.
"We're actively considering what's going to be necessary to deal with that threat and we're not going to be restricted by borders," he added.
PARIS， June 2 (Xinhua) -- With no sign of an end to the standoff between the French government and trade unions over labor reform， traffic in France was affected by a railway strike which entered its second day on Thursday.
Fifteen percent of the country's railway workers stopped work， meaning four regional trains out of 10 were running and 30 percent of inter-city links were operational， the state-run railway company SNCF said.
Only 40 percent of the TGV high speed trains kept their schedules unchanged. The Eurostar service connecting Paris and Britain and Thalys connecting to Germany ran as normal， but those going to Spain and Italy were disrupted.
Three French unions called for rolling strikes to force the government to revoke a contested labor law which they say would create more low-paid jobs， affect workers' rights， and worsen working conditions.
As time is counting down to the European football tournament which begins on June 10， the CGT union， a harsh opponent of the reform， was seeking to broaden the industrial action by inviting air traffic controllers and bus workers to join the anti-labor-law strike to put more pressure on the government.
Meanwhile， a strike by 9 percent of workers at a French utility company has cut power to more than a million homes in the French capital and suburbs. As many as 125，000 households suffered power cuts in Saint-Nazaire in western France.
The head of the powerful CGT union， Philippe Martinez， pledged on Thursday "the strongest mobilization in three months."
However， the CGT is likely isolated in its efforts to make the ruling Socialist Party reconsider the reform.
Unsa， the SNCF's second main union， earlier in the day lifted the strike call after securing a deal with the government to better improve work conditions.
Furthermore， unions cancelled a two-day strike of air traffic control staff scheduled for Friday.
"There'll be no disruption of the airways this weekend，" transport minister Alain Vidalies told France Info radio.
