During a crisis meeting in Paris, the US proved successful in building an international coalition to combat the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

Follow up:

Twenty four countries have pledged to support the US in countering the "global threat" posed by the group, which was recently highlighted once again when Australian police foiled a plot to behead a random member of the public.

Support is also mounting at home - 53 percent of Americans are firmly behind Obama's plans for military action, according to the Pew Research Center. The president is also enjoying a rare display of bipartisan support - 64 percent of Republicans and 60 percent of Democrats support the military effort against ISIS.

Events are escalating in Iraq with US fighter aircraft striking ISIS forces south-west of Baghdad earlier this week. US warplanes have attacked ISIS positions, primarily in northern Iraq, 174 times. French President Francois Hollande has just confirmed that France has launched its first air attacks against ISIS targets in Iraq.
