Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) terrorists have released a video in response to President Barack Obama's promise to "degrade and destroy" the group.
The video, which was posted to YouTube but has been removed, is a Hollywood-quality mix of slow-motion explosions, RPG launches and military troops.
Obama is also featured in the video during a briefing in which the president says, "Our combat troops will not be returning to Iraq."
There is no narration, and the video is only 52 seconds long.
It ends by flashing words on the screen: “Flames of War: Fighting Has Just Begun” followed by “coming soon.”
