New airstrikes in Syria take aim at Islamic State's oil money: U.S. airstriked and pounded Islamic State-controlled oil refineries in eastern Syria. Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates joined in the strikes by piloted and drone aircraft targeting facilities. U.S. Central Command said there were a total of 13 strikes against 12 modular oil refineries controlled by Islamic State fighters. Islamic State is managing to sell less than 100,000 barrels of crude oil a day.That might be worth up to $9.6 million on energy markets. Speaking at the United Nations, President Barack Obama asked the world to join together to fight the militants and vowed to keep up military pressure against them.

Nigeria military claims Boko Haram leader dead: Abuja (AFP) - Abuja (AFP) - Nigeria's military on Wednesday claimed for the first time that Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau was dead.Bashir, had been acting or posing on videos as the deceased Abubakar Shekau, the eccentric character known as leader of the group he says.The announcement is the first time the military has said publicly that Shekau was dead after two previous claims that he had died in July 2009 and in late June 2013. The military did not, however, say how or when Shekau died. A spokeswoman for the country's secret police, Marilyn Ogar, said "the original Shekau is dead" and that the person appearing in numerous videos was an imposter.The United States last year put up a $7 million reward for Shekau's capture as part of its Rewards for Justice program and designated him a "global terrorist".There has long been speculation in Nigeria and beyond about whether he was actually still alive.

Algerian Islamic militants behead French hostage: An Algerian terrorist group from Al-Qaida has beheaded a French hostage over France's airstrikes on the Islamic State group. The killing of Herve Gourdel, a mountaineer who was kidnapped while hiking in Algeria, was a "cowardly assassination," a visibly upset French President Francois Hollande said Wednesday, but he vowed to continue the military operation.
"France will never cede to terrorism because it is our duty, and, more than that, because it is our honor." says President Francois Hollande. France joined the U.S. in conducting airstrikes on the Islamic State group in Iraq. Two days later, the Islamic State group called on Muslims to attack foreign targets, and the response in Algeria.

A group calling itself Jund al-Khilafah split from al-Qaida and pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group two weeks ago. It seized Gourdel in response to the call to kill the "spiteful and filthy French." It gave France 24 hours to end its air campaign.

The videos from the group were similar to those from the Islamic State group, which killed two American journalists and a British aid worker in recent weeks.Obama, speaking at the same meeting, said people around the world had been "horrified by another brutal murder."

"These terrorists believe our countries will be unable to stop them. The safety of our citizens demands that we do," Obama said at the UN meeting, which was aimed at combating the threat posed by foreign fighters joining extremist groups.

Bill Clinton: Obama Will Be Judged On Whether U.S. Is 'More Secure' After ISIS Strikes: President Bill Clinton thinks the American people will support President Obama’s ISIS strategy because they want the president to project strength and make the country more secure following the brutality witnessed in the executions of two American journalists by their ISIS captors.

“People were really shaken by those beheadings,” Clinton said in an interview. “I think that the American people generally tend to judge the president by whether we are more secure and look strong,"

“I think they don’t support and shouldn’t right now…us getting involved in a ground conflict. That’s probably what they – ISIS – would like. They’d probably like that because then they could BLAME US,” he said
Clinton added that President Obama’s strategy to combat ISIS “has a chance to succeed.”

Obama at UN: Dismantle the IS 'network of death: Confronted by the growing threat of Middle East militants, President Barack Obama implored world leaders at the United Nations on his expanding military campaign to stamp out the violent Islamic State group and its "network of death."

"There can be no reasoning, no negotiation, with this brand of evil," Obama told the General Assembly. Obama declared that force is the only language the militants understand. He warned those who have joined their cause to "leave the battlefield while they can."

The Russian Navy Is Aiming To Be Much Larger Than The US Navy: Russia's plan to add 80 new warships to its Black Sea fleet will put the country's navy even further ahead of the US Navy in terms of sheers numbers.Both countries had been on nearly equal footing with nearly 300 warships before Russia moved ahead of the US with the seizure of 51 Ukrainian vessels after invading the Crimean peninsula in March, Kyiv Post reported.

The new ones, planned for use by 2020 at a second Russian base on the Black Sea, would put the Black Sea fleet alone at 206 vessels, according to Vice Admiral Alexander Vitko. But depending on how you measure size, the US is likely to hold on to its naval supremacy.

"As much as the US Navy has shrunk since the end of the Cold War, its battle fleet, by one estimate, is still larger than the next 13 navies combined.

Gates went on to say that the US will maintain its 11 active aircraft carriers through 2040 at least, much more than any other country owns.

Wait, you go to Yahoo for news updates? o.O

Richard, I might be wrong, but I think Sky is trying to start some chatter here. You might notice he doesn't post sports or celebrity news, but rather news on conflicts and politics, which is somewhat relevant to Warlight.

He's regurgitating information that is readily available elsewhere and providing absolutely no value added. It is utterly pointless.
