Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush call for tougher fight against Islamic State



Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush appeared on the Sunday news shows and called for a tougher fight against the Islamic State, including more U.S. forces on the ground.

"First, I would ask our allies to invoke Article 5. This is clearly an act of war and an attack on one of our NATO allies," Rubio said on This Week. Rubio denied Rand Paul's charge that Rubio blocked an amendment to the 2013 immigration bill calling for more background checks on people entering the country. He also criticized Hillary Clinton for not saying we are at war with "radical Islam. Clinton during Saturday's debate said: "I don't think we're at war with Islam. I don't think we're at war with all Muslims. I think we're at war with jihadists."
