Regarding the Sept. 3 news article “ Video depicts 2nd beheading”: As another American journalist is beheaded by ISIS, it is time for the United States stand up for what we believe in and protect our citizens. The British prime minister took no time in addressing ISIS after this beheading, and now it is President Obama’s turn.

The United States looks weak in the eyes of the world, and terrorist groups are taking advantage of that. How long are we going to sit back and do nothing? How much more of a threat to America will they become before we take action? The time to take action is now.
