Rep. Van Hollen: "American boots on the ground in Syria" would help ISIS

A new video surfaced Tuesday that appears to show the brutal execution of Steven Sotloff at the hands of ISIS.

The video includes a direct warning to President Barack Obama, telling him, "Just as your missiles continue to strike our people, our knife will continue to strike the necks of your people."

Last week, President Obama said the U.S. does not "yet" have a strategy to deal with ISIS in Syria. Administration officials say ISIS poses a "very serious threat to the homeland."

British Prime Minister David Cameron announced a series of measures to combat the threat of ISIS within the U.K.

Where is the President's strategy?

OutFront, Democratic Congressman Chris Van Hollen.

    -When God created man and woman He did not say, " become terrorists and blow things up, including yourselves." When Jesus came to save people whom believed through Him concerning salvation He did not say, " Now terrorize the world with gruesome acts." No, God Almighty will be the Judge and King on Mt. Olivet and He alone will decide whom to separate from whom...For now, America as an official government in the world, can carpet-bomb in Syria and then Russia might consider carpet-bombing Israel...But that is the chance we all take now that the world has turned to barbarianism. Scripturally it's already there...some government need only to flip the switch; a spiritual world gone dark will truly reveal the kingdom of heaven Jesus spoke of. -Pray.
