    well even though there is no war declared, the government might be inclined to say, "since our military is fighting them from the air"......any aid and confront could be treason.

    this is why constitutional law should be strictly adhered to, and wars declared by congress, not presidential use of military power when he feels like it.

    Since we technically don't have a declaration of war...
    Lawyers always find ways to question everything.

    That's what they do best.

    It is treasonous to join in a war against the United States of America, which is how ISIL perceives itself.

    I think Londoner JIhadi john should be publicly defiled and then beheaded on TV when caught

    the parents of the men he murdered should be allowed to do the defiling and then saw his head off

    what should be done to americans captured by US or allied troops fighting against ISIS?
    America does not have boots on the ground and as such will not capture anyone.

    If Americans are caught in Iraq, committing crimes* there, the Iraqi government has jurisdiction.

    *Since ISIS are insurgents legally, participation is criminal regardless of the participant's nationality.

    We should leave it to the Iraqis and Iranians.
