Antichrist war is officially declared

defense.gov Aug. 21, 2014:
Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey,
chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff:
ISIS has an "apocalyptic, end-of-days" vision 
that will eventually have to be defeated.
In the aftermath of 9/11, [an inside job]
that killed 3,000 Americans,
the United States focused on al-Qaida,
and the nation made significant progress
[surrounding Iran with NATO bases in {Iraq,Afghanistan}]
But the [anti-zionist] threat has changed and morphed
into the Arab Spring
and the [civil wars] in Syria and Iraq:
In many places there is a lack of governance.

. the terrorist group ISIL
(Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant)
also known as ISIS
(the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham)
[would create a Sunni theocracy that captures]
Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Kuwait
and the current state of Israel;
it is powered by 20 million disenfranchised Sunnis
living between Damascus, Syria, and Baghdad .

. [such an extensive Sunni Islamic state]
would fundamentally alter the face of the Middle East
and certainly threaten {zionists, usa} in many ways.

. ISIS is a serious representation of [fueled by]
some global terrorist [anti-zionist, anti-colonialist] groups:
loosely connected, in some cases affiliated,
they run from Afghanistan across the Arabian Peninsula
into Yemen to the Horn of Africa
and into North and West Africa .

It is possible to contain ISIS, but not in perpetuity.
. ISIS has an "apocalyptic, end-of-days" vision
that will eventually have to be defeated.
. they must be defeated not only in Iraq,
but also in [Russia's] Syria as well.

"It requires a variety of instruments
-- one of which is airstrikes .
I'm not predicting those will occur in Syria
-- at least not by the United States of America.
But it requires the application of
all the tools of national power,
diplomatic, economic, information, military."

. there will be a very long contest of ideologies
[ or a very quick megadeath event, Fall 2016  #5777.]

"It's ideological. It's not political.
It's religious, in many cases:
[ it's sectarianism or nationalism;
it's anti-colonialist and anti-zionist .
. it's about having separate states for
the Shia and Sunni Islamic sects;
the state of Iraq was invented by zionism's colonialists
to mix the Islamic sects and get them fighting each other
instead of taking back Israel from the zionists .]

The U.S. leadership role will be complicated,
as usa must be ready for direct action,
but must be primarily invested in
building partner capacity:
We've got to enable partners
and "have them take ownership of this,
because, frankly, if we own it,
they're not going to be that interested in it" .
