- The Washington Times - Wednesday, September 3, 2014

Vice president Joseph R. Biden opened his speech on the economy in New Hampshire on Wednesday with some words of warning for the Islamic State, calling them “barbarians” and vowing that America will track them down.

“The American people are so much stronger, so much more resolved than any enemy can fully understand,” Mr. Biden said, at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, the Washington Post reported. “We don’t forget.”

Mr. Biden vowed the United States would respond to Islamic State terrorism much in the same way they did to the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks at the Boston Marathon — with care and concern.

“We take care of those who are grieving and when that’s finished, they should know we will follow them to the gates of hell until they are brought to justice, because hell is where they will reside,” he said, to applause, the Washington post reported.

His comments come on the heels of Islamic State’s beheading of two American journalists.

Mr. Biden also spoke about the plight of America’s middle class — the “fabric that stitches together this country unlike any other nation in the world,” he said, the newspaper reported.

“The middle class,” he said, “when it’s doing well, everybody does well.”
