Well, ISIS may have the ability to kill civilians and poorly trained militias, but they don't have the ability to govern. They are just a better armed Gaza. Everything they touch will disintegrate.

Since the Caliphate has pronounced itself a state, and since it has made credible threats against the United States, why don't we simply recognize it and formally declare war on it? No need for another AUMF that reads like a software licensing agreement.

I admit, this goes against my oft-stated position that we should start no foreign ventures we can't finish within Washington's attention span (roughly three weeks), but an actual declaration of war might firm things up.
