Biden vowed to hunt down and defeat the IS group, while stepping up efforts to recruit an international coalition to join in the fight.

“The American people are so much stronger, so much more resolved than any enemy can fully understand,” Biden said in a speech on Wednesday.

\”When people harm Americans, we don’t retreat, we don’t forget.”

A videotape showing Steven Sotloff’s murder was broadcast on Tuesday, two weeks after the same group released a video showing Foley’s killing.

“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,” the US vice president said. “Because hell is where they’ll reside.”

The speech came as US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel has said dozens of US citizens are joining the Islamic State group.

“We are aware of over a hundred US citizens, who have US passports, who are fighting in the Middle East with ISIL [IS] force,” Hagel said in a television interview. “There maybe more, we don’t know, we can’t take a chance.”

Earlier on Wednesday, US President Barack Obama called for an international front against the IS, as US allies Britain and France weighed possible military action.
