When a wealthy and heavily armed enemy such as ISIS, which perpetrates acts of war and horrific atrocities every day, threatens to “drown America in blood,” they mean exactly what they say.

In case anybody hasn’t noticed, ISIS has declared itself to be a “caliphate” called the Islamic State. It holds a large swath of territory. It has recruiters and saboteurs all over the world. It is our enemy.

ISIS has declared war on the US. It is time for the US Senate to respond by declaring that a state of war with ISIS exists, and to empower our military to attack it.

BizPacReview has the story:

Retired Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney thinks the United States should “go to DEFCON 1, our highest state of readiness and be prepared as we lead up to 9/11.

McInerney made the comment Saturday in an appearance with Uma Pemmaraju  on Fox News Channel’s “America’s News HQ.”

“We may even see a 9/11/14,” he added.

“There’s a narrative gap,” McInerney said in response to Pemmaraju’s questions about border security and domestic threats from Islamic State. “The president thinks everything’s OK. Al-Qaida’s dead. He killed Osama bin Laden, but he’s three years behind in the narrative.”

The Air Force veteran called an “unchecked” Islamic State “an existential threat to the United States.”

“I’m not talking about two or three years from now,” he said. “I’m talking very, very soon.”
