    The message ISIS wants to send to America, the world

    The message ISIS wants to send to America, the world | Fox News

    The grisly propaganda videos released by Islamist terrorists of the executions of innocent American hostages are coldly calculated to intimidate the terrorist group’s enemies, inspire its followers and incite further attacks against the United States and our allies.

    ISIS aims to horrify Americans to discourage increased U.S. military involvement in combatting the Islamic State. But there also was another target audience: supporters and potential recruits for that terrorist movement.

    The slickly-packaged jihadist propaganda seeks to stimulate and galvanize members of the movement, spur potential recruits to join in the carnage and incite additional terrorist attacks against the United States.
    Why doesn't the US create it's own propaganda videos showing islamists getting blown to smiterines, or SOF soldiers slaughtering groups these guys while they holding their black flags, to let them know we'll get them everywhere they are? A video of a sniper round popping one is these guy's heads like a pimple. I don't see why we shouldn't play this game as well.

    Haha I saw one. Too bad it wasn't propaganda.

    It was captioned "two goat ****ers try ****ing with the U.S.A get blown by drone smart missiles"

    Best thing I ever saw. It was a screen like those screens you see from video footage of an AC-130 and it showed two terrorists walking. You hear something and then all of a sudden BOOM!!!! One of the guys is torn in half and the body is flung like a rag doll from the blast.

    Pretty funny. Ima see if I can get it up, it was on Facebook.

    I think. I can get a similar vid if not. But that one was hilarious.

    We all ready do.

    Propaganda in the United States is propaganda spread by government and media entities within the United States. Propaganda is information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to influence opinions. Propaganda is not only in advertising; it is also in radio, newspaper, posters, books, and anything else that might be sent out to the widespread public.

    Kudos don't go to Boehner for repititiously using the word "strategy" without answering any questions.

    Nor do the GOPs want to vote on this "strategy" and be seen supporting the President before the election, their "strategy".

    Rep. Kingston-R-GA point blank said the GOPs want to stay on the sidelines.
    Some "strategy" from the House of GOP huh ?

    How did "mission accomplished" rhetoric work for the last President?
    No matter what this President does, GOPs in the House/Senate will slam him as they are already doing.

    These are people who only need to know one thing from the President,
    you don't get to know what I'm doing until AFTER the fact--as he's done since August 8th--according to current law .

    The vidoes published by ISIS had an unintended effect as well. They are credited with turning US public opinion in favor of bombing ISIS.

    Some argue that that's not unintended.
