Dempsey: ISIS ‘Will Eventually Collapse Under the Weight of Their Own Contradictions’

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey vowed today that ISIS “will eventually collapse under the weight of their own contradictions” — with “a little help from coalition partners.”

Dempsey and Defense Secretary Ashton Carter were asked at a Pentagon press conference today about the Department of Homeland Security alert about the potential for an ISIS attack over the Fourth of July — and whether ISIS has evolved into more of a threat against the homeland.

    This is a general that does not understand his enemy.

    ISIS will not collapse under the weight of their own contradictions anymore that Islam will. Islam has been with us for 1,400 years and there is no reason to believe that ISIS can’t outlive him.
    ISIS is not built on a rational western foundation and is not playing by the rules we impose on ourselves.

    • Islam is nothing more than “whack a mole” Islam style.

      Taliban yesterday, ISIS today. Who cares what their name is.

      Islamo terrorists groups are all nothing but a collection of “lone wolfs”. And Islam has hundreds of millions “lone wolfs” in reserve for the next group with organizational skills.

      We either deal with the ideology (Islamic theology) driving the “lone wolfs” or hang it up and get ready to become Muslim or die.

      Rearranging the chairs on the Titanic did not help.

      Worrying about one terror group won’t end the problem.

      Reforming Islam is the only answer.

      Drop the PC garbage. Islam is a cult. It needs to be addressed that way.

      Close all mosques. Arrest the Mullahs. That’s a good start.

        Destroying Islam is the only answer

        • A agree.

          Now, what is your proposal on how to do that?

    ‘With a little help’, is this meant to be ironic. Perhaps if the coaltion partners stopped giving IS a lot of help they would collapse from their own internal contradictions just a little bit faster. Perhaps if the coaltion stopped offering IS any help the coaltion might just stop collapsing from theirs. When your meant to be a free market republic but you are actually beholden to the Feds fiat petro $ & AIPAC’s foreign policy of divide and conquer then internal contradiction is your lot.

      AIPAC? Huh?

      • Rozza

        The US’s foreign policy is influenced by the petro $ and Israel’s interest.

    Hey, remember when military leaders understood the enemy?
    Good times.

    If I was a soldier under this guy this kind of statement would not inspire me with confidence. In fact I would be worried that this guy is so stupid he would not make sure I was supplied properly with essential items like food and bullets and would be so simple minded as to acquiesce in the implementation of rules of engagement which would hobble my effectiveness and get me killed for nothing. On top of that, he would forget all about me after I left the army and do nothing to make sure I received proper medical care if wounded or my family taken care of if I was killed.

    Why should US wage a war on mankind’s scourge when the man in charge of defending the republic can wish it away ?

    Colapse under the weight if it’s contradictions? He must have meant the US.

    An Army of Lions led by sheep.

  • cmh

    In reality, dempsey/usa is on the verge of collapsing under the weight of THEIR own contradictions

  • WalterBannon

    ISIS is embedded in the White House, so this general does not know his head from his ass.
