Johnson: ISIS "barbarians" must be defeated

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  U-S Senate Republican Ron Johnson says the Islamic State militants are evil barbarians who must be defeated. Johnson was campaigning with G-O-P Senate candidate Mike McFadden in Minnesota yesterday, when the Islamic State released a video that showed the beheading of U-S journalist Steven Sotloff.

It was the second such incident confirmed by the White House, the first being the death of Marquette graduate James Foley last month.

McFadden -- who's running against Democratic Senator Al Franken -- said the U-S should continue targeted bombings in Iraq and possibly Syria. He does not support a ground invasion. Johnson did not say what type of intervention he favors.
