WASHINGTON, D.C. ( & KRNV) -- When will the U.S. strike back at militants with the Islamic State?

For Americans, the question is ever more pressing with the gruesome murder of Steven Sotloff. Sotloff is the second American journalist beheaded by ISIS in as many weeks. Now, there are new and dire warnings about an imminent terrorist strike on American soil.

Friends describe Steven Sotloff as devoted, to his family, friends, and career, almost to a fault. Like Journalist James Foley, Sotloff's life came to horrible, abrupt end at the hands of murderers, for the world to see in a video.

"He had to pay for our freedom in some respects with his life," said classmate Frank Buttaravoli. "So, for that, Steve Sotloff's a hero."

It was only a week ago when President Barack Obama said he had no strategy for dealing with the Islamic State. Now, the President says the United States will degrade and destroy ISIS.

"We will not be intimidated," said President Obama. "Their horrific acts only unite us as a country and stiffen our resolve to take the fight against these terrorists, and those who make the mistake of harming Americans will learn that we will not forget, and that our reach is long, and that justice will be served."

But critics like the government watchdog group Judicial Watch want to know how many more Sotloffs and Foleys will have to die before the U.S. takes demonstrable action. "The administration perhaps finds itself in an awkward position," said Chris Farrell. "They don't wish to either highlight or any way sort of embroider or expand upon what is admittedly a really bad position."

A position Farrell said is downright scary considering the vulnerbalities at the U.S. border. Farrell said his sources are telling him that ISIS is already in Mexico, possibly planning to attack the U.S. "These are certified bad guys that are on a mission to do bad things."

The world has witnessed that not once, but twice.

"The next time, it might be someone that you know who might be getting executed in a barbaric manner if our government doesn't step in and do the right thing, which is to eradicate the Islamic State of terror," said Buttaravoli.

Obama is Swahili for "absence of cajones! It is embarrassing on the world stage that the United States has been reduced to a third world country. During our greatest generation we sacrificed 1000s of lives to rid the world of Japanese aggression, nazi-ism and fascism. ALL at the same time. Now we can't even bomb the crap out of a bunch of extremists with inferior weapons who live in caves in the desert,....unless we get the approval of every little insignificant player in the UN. We have LOST our leadership role in the world thanks to president"no cajones".
