ISIS' brutality caught on video

Warning: this video is violent and may be too difficult for some viewers to watch

It is hard to overstate ISIS' ambition or its thirst for blood. Recently a VICE News filmmaker spent time with ISIS fighters in Syria. He witnesses the grisly end and aftermath of a battle with a Syrian army unit.

What does it take to defeat a force like ISIS, when they are ready to use such brutal tactics? Anderson discussed possible strategies with retired U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Rick Francona and David Kilcullen, who advised Condoleezza Rice and Gen. Petraeus on counterinsurgency.

    This trend will continue in its eternal cycle UNTIL people in Syria, Iraq and all over the world rise and wipe it out. To be clear I'm NOT speaking about Islam because I'm a firm believer in its your choice what to believe in. Until the civilians pick up their weapons, until the parents educate their children, and until the world leaders fight back innocent children will continue to fall victim to these people and their evil ideologies.

    God, no! this is the nightmare that I for long feared... those basters are corrupting the minds of the children of my country, the children of Syria should now be learning about peace and to be open minded, not this jihad crap!

    Why do these incredibly, incredibly stupid, amoral, cowardly people care what Americans, or anyone else for that matter, does in the eyes of their make-pretend-friend? Seriously.
