The United States conducted a new round of air strikes against Islamic State militants in northern Iraq on Sunday and moved some U.S. diplomats out of its consulate in Arbil as Republicans slammed President Barack Obama's intervention as ineffective.Republican Representative Peter King of New York, echoing other critics of Obama's policy in Iraq, criticized Obama for insisting he will not send U.S. ground troops to combat the militants, adding the United States has been too timid so far.The moves are the first direct U.S. military action in Iraq since Obama pulled U.S. troops out in 2011 . Obama, who campaigned on ending the long, bloody U.S. war there, has been reluctant to wade back into Iraq. On Sunday, the U.S. military said U.S. planes had conducted air strikes on Islamic State targets for the third straight day. About 40 U.S. military personnel are now in Arbil at a joint U.S.-Iraq military operations center.
