I believe that the ISIS is a very idiotic and inhumane group of terrorist. The reason for this is because they are going around places like Iraq and Syria taking over their government. Terrorists in the ISIS group are killing their own race of innocent people and also Americans as well as other people with different nationalities. They started by putting up pictures and videos all over social media and especially twitter where they use popular hash tags so that anyone who searches a popular hash tag like a certain world wide event like the world cup what would pop up would be those pictures. They are doing this because they want to get world recognition so they will look like the greatest terrorist group that has ever been created. This is very stupid on their part. By making it public and telling everyone that they are the group that are causing it brought great attention to other countries of the people they killed the main one being America by killing two Americans. If you mess with Americans America will come for you and destroy you, which is what has happen with other groups and leaders in the past like Osama Bin Laden. What was posted on twitter yesterday by CNN a newscast that has 13.8 million followers was “The U.S. will destroy ISIS, the President said after a second beheading video was releases.” This is what should happen and what was eventually going to have to happen and ISIS making it public to the world gets and they will regret ever killing any single person because of it now that America and their army will take action.
