War Veteran Representatives On ISIS

(Undated) -- Congressmen who've served in the military are talking about the crisis in Iraq. Democrat Dutch Ruppersberger of Maryland and Republican Adam Kinzinger of Illinois appeared on CNN's "State of the Union" to discuss the Iraqi situation after pro-government forces took a city back from terrorist group ISIS. Ruppersberger calls ISIS "barbaric" and says not only is the military necessary to defeat them, but also a coalition of allies in the region. Kinzinger agrees, saying air power works and half the battle is public perception in the United States and abroad. Senator John McCain says more U.S. troops are necessary to deal with the growing threat from ISIS. Speaking on CBS' "Face the Nation," the Arizona Republican said American troops should play a support role because ISIS is a direct threat to the U.S.
