Military Force Alone Can’t Defeat Terrorism – Pres. Obama


The President of United States, Mr. Barack Obama has said that military force alone could not defeat the Boko Haram insurgents and other terrorist organisations around the world.

This is coming ahead of today’s (Thursday) Summit on Countering Violent Extremism.

According to the United States Department of States, Washington is hosting the summit to highlight domestic and international efforts to prevent violent extremists and their supporters from radicalising, recruiting or inspiring individuals or groups in its country and abroad to commit acts of violence, “efforts made even more imperative in light of recent, tragic attacks throughout the world.”
