Fox News has been on DEFCON1 since that Jordanian pilot was horrifically murdered by ISIS, and on this morning's #Outnumbered telecast, Fox News medical expert/analyst Manny Alvarez went on a wild rant that ended in him wishing he could volunteer at 57 years old and go and fight ISIS by himself. Before that exclamation point, he also said some very awful and John Birch-type lunacy on top of it.

As usual, the show led off by attacking President Obama for not doing enough to snuff out ISIS.

Andrea Tantaros longed for Obama to have a George Bush "bullhorn moment" or at least a Reagan moment and then Alvarez went off the rails as the #OneLuckyGuy fill-in for the day.

He started off on his rant by gleefully saying America "only" has to kill 40,000 ISIS members, or people, as if that's a drop in the bucket and should take about a weekend to accomplish

Alvarez: You got 40,000 people we need to kill, 40,000 people. Alright, that's not a lot of people. There's no coalition, I don't think anybody, I talk to a lot of my friends in the middle east and I have a few, and they tell me "look, the problem with the Gulf/Arab states getting involved is that they don't trust the president. They don't trust whether they are going to get any help. But I think that's the fundamental reason, this is a lack of leadership.

I can understand how a Fox Medical expert would also be a well-informed Middle East adviser, too. He has a few friends and I think that qualifies, don't you?

Alvarez: The Middle East was in trouble, yes. Everybody knows since the days. (That's quality analysis) Now, it's out of control. And to say that "we have to wait for them to come here to our shores. They're here already! In sleeper cells, in the behavior they have created through the Internet and making people commit crimes. These are atrocities against humanity. The United States, back in the day, when they saw that no matter what part of the world it was they took a leadership position and they fought.

I won't dissect his every word because... freedom! No, because it's ludicrous, but as usual Fox News has on a kook who perpetuates the falsehood that ISIS is already in America, hiding in sleeper cells like "The Jennings family," just waiting to cut all our throats at night.

Q: What would you do?

Alvarez: I believe troops on the ground, fine, OK, I wish I could volunteer. I'm 57 years old and you know what. I'd volunteer, OK?

Tantaros: You could do it, but the president has ruled out troops on the ground.

Alvarez is truly the only real man left in America. I thought Fox News' Dr. Ablow was bad.

Don't these guys ever discuss medical issues?
