(Worthy News) - The U.S. House overwhelmingly condemned as genocide the atrocities committed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant extremist group (ISIL) against Christians, Yazidis, and other groups in Iraq and Syria.

The 393-0 vote on March 14 came as U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry considers making a legal determination that IS committed genocide — a move that some believe would obligate the United States to take further action against the group beyond the current air-strike campaign.

House Speaker Paul Ryan chided the White House for delaying a decision.

“As the administration waffles on this issue and doubles-down on its failed strategy to defeat ISIS, the American people are speaking loudly and clearly,” he said, using another acronym for the group. [ Source ]

  1. This is AWESOME! 393 U.S. House members can report to the closes AFB for deployment. After all 393 members want ISIS so seriously for the acts of genocide they are more then willing to fight those b&t]h*s and we the American People salute their willingness to take the place of 393 combat soldiers. God bless America! ISIS look out cause you pissed off 393 US House members!

  2. Since Barry pretty much created, funded and enabled ISIS to expand, can we the People of the United States now finally charge him with treason and send him to GITMO prison camp where her belongs ? Him, Jarrett an anyone else involved.

  3. When they going to charge Barry, and the previous prez Bush with treason, mass murder on 9/11 controlled demolition of the WTC complex, and war crimes in all the illegal wars he started and innocents he killed...and of course genocide as well..maybe the house should vote on that....and of course, as someone pointed out, who created, financed and enabled ISIS to destablize the middle east? Good old Barry of course...
