President Obama took a confident stand against the Islamic State on Wednesday as he asked Congress for a resolution authorizing the continued campaign against the terrorist group.

"Make no mistake, this is a difficult mission. And it will remain difficult for some time. It's going to take time to dislodge these terrorists," Obama said. "But our coalition is on the offensive. ISIL is on the defensive, and ISIL is going to lose."
