ISIS Issues Video Challenge to Obama [VIDEO]

ISIS has released a short video in which the extremist group appears to say it will kill American ground forces if the White House deploys them to Iraq and/or Syria. The video apparently is the terrorist network’s first response to President Obama’s vow to β€œdegrade and ultimately destroy” it. The 52-second video is billed as a preview for a longer video, The New York Times reports. It begins with American troops and tanks under fire and American soldiers carrying a wounded comrade toward an armored vehicle. The words β€œFlames of War” appear with another phrase, ”Fighting has just begun,” below that, and ends with β€œComing Soon.” Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey told U.S. senators recently that U.S. troops could end up fighting ISIS in a ground warβ€”contrary to what Obama has said.
