Mr. Speaker, let me once again be very clear about what we are dealing with here.
This group, the so-called Islamic State, represents a direct threat not just to the region. It represents a threat to the world. By word and by deed, it represents a threat to this country. We have made important deployments. Obviously those deployments could easily be changed if that were necessary.
Our goal here is to deal with the threat to this country. We will deal with it as long as it is there. We will not stop dealing with it before that.
