All quotes by Barack Obama on Iraq

We should not be drawn into a long and costly ground war in Iraq or Syria. That's what groups like ISIL want. The strategy we are using now… air strikes, special forces and working with local forces who are fighting to regain control of their own country,.... that is how we will achieve a more sustainable victory.feedback

Over the last few years however, the terrorist threat has evolved into a new phase.And its groups like ISIL grew stronger amidst the chaos of war in Iraq and then Syria and as the internet erases the distance between countries, we see growing efforts by terrorists to poison the minds if people like the Boston Bombers and the San Bernardino killers.feedback

The resolution we submitted today does not call for the deployment of US ground combat forces to Iraq or Syria. It is not the authorization of another ground war like Afghanistan or Iraq.feedback

Let's remember: ISIL poses a threat to all Iraqis and to the entire region. They claim to represent Sunni grievances, but they slaughter Sunni men, women and children. They claim to oppose foreign forces, but they actively recruit foreign fighters to advance their hateful ideology. So the Iraqi people need to reject them and unite to begin to push them out of the lands they've occupied, as we're seeing at Mosul Dam.feedback

The American forces that have been deployed to Iraq do not and will not have a combat mission; their mission is to advise and assist our partners on the ground.feedback

Thinking we're only one signature away from ending the war in Iraq.feedback

Obviously at this point we are focused on the fighting that is taking place in Iraq's Anbar province and we are deeply concerned about the situation in and around the Syrian town of Kobani which underscores the threat that ISIL poses in both Syria and Iraq, and coalition airstrikes will continue in both areas.feedback

We will be prepare to take targeted and precise military actions if and when we determine the situation on the ground requires. If we do I will consult Congress and leaders in Iraq and in the region. We simply don't have the ability to solve this problem by sending in tens of thousands of troops.feedback
