IS to US: ‘We Will Drown All of You in Blood’

August 19, 2014 - 9:18 AM

A video posted online yesterday by Islamic State (IS) militants shows an American being beheaded and says in English: "We will drown all of you in blood."

The video, which says IS will attack Americans "in any place" in the world if raids hit IS forces, comes on the heels of U.S. airstrikes in Iraq.

President Obama announced earlier that day that U.S. air support had assisted Iraqi troops in wresting back control Mosul Dam, and the U.S. has assisted Kurdish Peshmerga in pushing back IS forces.

So far, the Islamic State has not been an international threat and has focused its unique brand of terror on lands in Iraq and Syria, although its long-term goal is to restore an Islamic caliphate.
