US Declares War Against ISIS Militants



The United states has finally declared war with Islamic State radicals, as they try to end the terrible onslaught of the group.
Secretary of State John Kerry talked to the nation with a series of television appearances and he refused to tag the expansion of US operations against IS in Iraq and Syria as “war.”
But when forced to answer Obama’s feelings for the conflict, the White House and Pentagon left little doubt.
“The United States is at war with ISIL in the same way that we are at war with Al-Qaeda and its Al-Qaeda affiliates all around the globe,” said White House spokesman Josh Earnest.
Meanwhile Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby said: “But make no mistake, we know we are at war with ISIL in the same way we’re at war and continue to be at war with Al-Qaida and its affiliates”.
Obama is planned to be in Tampa Florida this Wednessday to have a meeting with US Central Command, which oversees American forces in the Middle East.
Keery had on thursday taken a look at the Middle East building an anti-IS coalition,and refused to use the term “war” in referring to the US campaign, telling people not to indulge in “war fever.”
“We’re engaged in a major counterterrorism operation, and it’s going to be a long-term counterterrorism operation,” Kerry said.
“I think ‘war’ is the wrong terminology and analogy but the factis that we are engaged in a very significant global effort to curb terrorist activity,” Kerry said
The Islamic State (IS) formerly the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant Arabic or the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria is a Sunni jihadist group in the Middle East. In its self-proclaimed status as a caliphate, it claims religious authority over all Muslims across the world.
