Secretary Kerry mentioned that while we are launching a major counter-terrorist operation against ISIS, that we are not at "war" with them. This morning I am listening to FOX and they start criticizing Secretary of State Kerry's reluctance to call our operations against ISIS an actual war. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/john-kerry-no-need-for-war-fever-in-isis-operations/ Whatever the name of the operation against ISIS, with a multinational coalition and major military plans to possibly involve Syria, is this a war? Does it matter what we call it? Is the reluctance of calling this a war a sign of weakness in Obama's administration? Would be calling it a war legitimize ISIS as an actual (rogue) state?
