    I would like the media or government–and CNN is perfectly suited to this–to do a report on demonstrating why we are sure its ISIS beheading people, and not their enemies posing as ISIS to get the US to attack their enemies.

    Don't get me wrong. I'm the last person in the nation who would argue against attacking them. I'm a 100% disabled veteran, US Army, who is also the son of a disabled veteran. Whoever is doing these things needs to explode and the US needs to help them do it.

    ...especially after abducting an Army Ranger. An example needs to be set–but it sets no example if we end up working for our enemies. I'm not suggesting any of these three, Assad, ISIS, or the Ayatollah are bad targets. Nukes were created for exactly this kind of situation, where everyone threatening us is all in one place–and BAM!–instant parking lot! Even if it were not ISIS, I say lets attack ISIS anyway–I just don't want to do any kindnesses to Assad or Iran in the process.

    How many can honestly say for an absolute fact that the video shown is clearly ISIS and not just someone al-Assad or the Ayatollah sent out to pose? I couldn't.

    Once we know for a fact who is responsible for this, I say lets nuke them back to the stone age.
