You can't "declare war" on a terrorist organization that doesn't have a formal government. And the US hasn't declared war since WWII.

@Peters I haven't been online in 4 months! I disagree with you a bit since a declaration of war does not really have to be "official" per se. For example the US essentially was at war with Native Americans in the early and mid 19th century but they did not have any "official" governmental system. Just ask Tecumseh.

@Atheist Actually, the Indians had a government. It just wasn't recognized by the United States. They were just doing some pest control.

@PetersSmith But the terrorist organization has seized control of much of Syria and Iraq.

If they get even stronger (likely not), they could even be considered a country themselves.
