The UN and ISIL - Promises, Promises

President Obama addressed the UN General Assembly yesterday. (Photo/

President Obama gave a speech at the UN
(Kinda like when Daniel stepped into the lions' den)
He stood up to Russia in support of the Ukraine;
Said that Putin's actions there would cost more than they'd gain.

Mainly though, he spoke about the flailing Middle East;
Pointing out, when tensions rise, religions are the yeast.
Sunni versus Shia versus Christian versus Jew...
When you fund a sect you're funding terrorism, too.

Voting was unanimous; the Council stands opposed
To the new Islamic State (whose oil fields we've just closed.)
Countries pledged to do their part - whatever that might be.
Will they keep their solemn words? We'll have to wait and see.
