Threats against the United States must be taken seriously these days.
Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is the leader of the Islamic State. The jihadist group, known by its former name, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, is responsible for seizing cities across northern Iraq this summer, shooting and beheading countless Iraqis along the way.
Recently, the Islamic state has publicly vowed to attack the United States and plant the flag of the Islamic State on top of the White House in Washington, D.C.
The threat to attack the United States must be taken seriously. ISIS must be destroyed. Those who support this group of criminals must be apprehended if possible and punished appropriately. This threat is very real; the group has the personnel and the resources to launch a catastrophic attack on the United States! The first opportunity to destroy these criminals must be seized and everything done to neutralize this threat from ever reappearing again! Kill or capture Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi! Prosecute his followers to the full extent of the law. In 2011, the U.S. posted a $10 million bounty for capturing him. This opportunity must not be missed!
