"America’s War Too": Ukraine's Poroshenko Asks for Help

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko urged Congress Thursday to provide more help to fight pro-Russia separatists who have taken over eastern parts of the country, saying the insurgency is not just an assault on Ukraine but all of the free world, NBC News reported. “The war that these men are fighting is not only Ukraine’s war,” Poroshenko said. “It is Europe’s, and it is America’s war too. It is a war of the free world, and for the free world.” He is also scheduled to visit President Obama in the Oval Office in a meeting the White House says will send a message to Russia that the U.S. stands firmly with Ukraine.

Iran’s President Blasts ISIS, U.S.-Led Coalition

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani told NBC News’ Ann Curry in Tehran Wednesday that ISIS terrorists “want to kill humanity,” but he also called the U.S.-led coalition against ISIS "ridiculous." Speaking ahead of the United Nations General Assembly in New York next week, Rouhani denounced the beheading of innocent people by ISIS as against Islam. Still, he questioned President Obama's decision to go after them with airstrikes. "Are Americans afraid of getting casualties on the ground in Iraq?" he asked. "Are they afraid of their soldiers being killed in the fight they claim is against terrorism?" He said such strikes should "take place with the permission of the people of that country and the government of that country." Curry was the first American journalist to interview Rouhani after he took office last year. Read »
