    They hold territory, they have made attacks on british people, the government should make a formal declaration of war.
    A declaration of war is a largely obsolete LEGAL object between two states, we can shift this debate as to whether ISIS and their territories should be regarded as a sovereign state or not if you wish, but I do not believe they can be defined as such just yet, which would make a declaration of war impossible to me.

    You won't ever be able to wipe them out. They will just run into the mountains and desert like Al-Qaeda did.

    They can't kill us, what they want is to establish a caliphate in Iraq, Syria and other Middle Eastern countries.

    The only reason they 'attack us' is because they want everyone to be aware of ISIS so that the media spreads their potential and manipulates it through the press so that more Muslims join them.

    Al-Qaeda is still a major threat to us?

    Yes, given the events of January 2015 with the Charlie Hebdo shooting and the events that followed.

    No matter how small a terrorist group becomes in the Middle East, they will always be able to do these MTWF attacks (marauding terrorist with firearms).

    ISIS particularly so, because they can manipulate foreign nationals into committing attacks in their name.

    And I hate to reuse this, but I think that it's appropriate:

    Lets look at the Paris attack. Can they kill us? Yes they can

    Is it going to be another statement from the wrong department with Aph declaring we shall seek an alliance?

    Nobody solves violence with violence. Yet, because primitive instincts prevail, it seems to be the only "solution".

    Hmmm, tends to work quite well for the police, for the military, for those who know self defence, bouncers, etc
