Even as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria fights to expand the territory under its control in the Middle East, statements from members of ISIS suggest the terror group views America as a future target.

“Everywhere our camera went, there seemed to be a young man eager to extol the virtues of the newly formed caliphate,” VICE Media’s Medyan Dairieh narrated in part four of his video report from the ISIS-controlled Syrian city of Raqqa, which the terror group has proclaimed the capital of its newly declared Islamic caliphate.

“I swear to Allah we will divide America in two,” one child, who looked no older than 12, declared to VICE Media in an angry rant, speaking as if he was already a member of the terror group. “And we’ll destroy the enemies of the religion all of them, all who fight the Islamic State.”

“We promise car bombs and explosives,” he said earlier in his diatribe.

At an Islamic center, VICE Media captured a group of ISIS fighters holding guns and singing a song with lyrics containing declarative statements that the group had already destroyed America and Europe, perhaps imagining a future they hope to bring about.

“We have broken America in two and we’ve annihilated the countries of Europe,” the terrorists sang.

In a previous installment of VICE Media’s video report from Raqqa, IS spokesman Abu Mosa vowed to take the White House.

“We will humiliate [the Americans] everywhere, God willing, and we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House,” he said. (RELATED: ISIS To America: ‘Don’t be cowards and attack us with drones)

Touring Raqqa, VICE Media also witnessed a man being crucified, allegedly for murder.

Since capturing large swaths of territory in Syria and Iraq, the formerly al-Qaida-affiliated terror group now prefers to be known simply as the Islamic State (IS).

Last week, as ISIS approached the Kurdish city of Erbil in Iraq, President Barack Obama authorized American airstrikes against the group to stop its advance.
