    ISIS isn't a country (typically a country only declares war on another country, but I suppose in a place where wars are waged against drugs and other non-living entities anything goes with war declarations).

    America is giving money, weapons and training to various groups fighting ISIS, they just don't want to get dragged into yet another never ending conflict. It's a no-win situation.

    ISIS is not a country. In the legal world, countries declare war on other countries; not terrorist groups.

    This is of course why the "detainees" not POWs at Guantanamo are not prisoners of war. Our allies did not declare war on the Taliban who was the enemy. And because they are not POWs they do not fall under the protection of the Geneva Convention on how POWs are handled.

    So we get waterboarding.

    ISIS isn't a country, and what country would you like them to declare war on? Maybe you can sign up and go to war.

    According to the news, the U.S. has fired on ISIS members.

    The big problem is innocent citizens get killed too.
