'We Will Divide America in Two': Young Boy Declares Jihad in New ISIS Video
VICE News has been reporting from inside Iraq, releasing chilling footage of ISIS terrorists. In the latest footage, which we saw on America's Newsroom this morning, a young boy delivers a warning to the United States.
On the translation (full video below), the boy declares, "I swear to God, we will divide America in two and destroy all the enemies of our religion and the Islamic State. The Caliphate will remain until the end of the world and God willing, we will fight for Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi."
Meantime, the U.S. continues to work on ways to rescue tens of thousands of displaced religious minorities in northern Iraq. Last night on The Kelly File, a UK correspondent reported that a humanitarian disaster is occurring on Mt. Sinjar and that "many people have died up there."
The Pentagon sent additional military planners to Iraq on Tuesday to figure out a way to rescue and relocate the tens of thousands of religious minorities trapped on a mountain by Islamic militants, senior U.S. officials said.
A senior U.S. official told Fox News that 130 military personnel have arrived in Irbil for the job.
The troops will work with State Department officials and USAID to develop plans to help the Yazidi people, a religious minority displaced on Sinjar Mountain.
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel formally announced the deployment in remarks to Marines at Camp Pendleton, California.
"This is not a combat boots on the ground kind of operation," Hagel said.
Fox News strategic analyst Lt. Col. Ralph Peters (Ret.) weighed in this morning, telling Martha MacCallum that he has never seen a group as "brutal" as ISIS. He said he has been trying to "drive home" the danger of ISIS for a long time, calling them a "death cult" that goes way beyond Islamic radicalism.
He pointed to the bloody attacks, including beheadings, carried out by young men in the terror organization.
"Methamphetamine and heroin may be addictive, but there is no substance on earth as addictive as human blood. It's now a death cult of mass human sacrifices to a bloodthirsty God. The closest parallel in history are the Aztecs, but at least they built things. This is the most destructive force I've seen in my lifetime. Even the Nazis did not film crucifixions and beheadings for public broadcast," he said, calling out "team Obama" for failing to fully understand the brutality.
MacCallum pointed to a USA Today report in which Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said if the ISIS threat goes unchecked, it could spread from Iraq and Syria to Israel and eventually to the U.S.
Peters responded that sending more military advisers reminds him of the beginnings of the Vietnam War under JFK.
"That's the way Democratic presidents start wars. They're facing a cancer and they want to just take a little tiny bit of the tumor out," said Peters, adding that the "dribs and drabs" military strategy will not destroy ISIS.
