No Military Solution (over ISIL) says General! Why?

September 17, 2014

General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff, and America’s top military officer said (yesterday) that there is NO MILITARY SOLUTION to the ISIL situation in Iraq/Syria. Nonetheless, he agrees with President Obama that America should pursue a policy of ‘destroy and degrade’ so that the motivations (and ideology) of ISIL fail and are degraded. The Wall Street Journal says that the General also opens the door to American ground troops (if necessary). Our Defense Secretary, Chuck Hagel, seemed to concur with this assessment and he also believes that Obama has the authority to pursue his war strategy without any further Congressional authorization. Some of the senators who participated in the hearing did not agree with this concept of pursuing WAR without full congressional authorization. Anyway, what does this all mean for Americans going forward?

The lady in the background has ‘wisdom’. Our political/military leaders seem to assume that MIGHT makes RIGHT! Currently, Americans (some 61%) support this military folly! I do not!

Basically, it now appears that another WAR has started in the Middle East and America will use its air power and advanced technology to destroy and degrade ISIL over the coming months and years. Will any of this war strategy work? Will America WIN this war of ideologies (of death overcoming Death)? Martin Dempsey claims that ISIL has an ‘ideology’ which he can not accept and that it is this ‘ideology’ which America must destroy. Does he understand what he is advocating? Is he AWARE that ‘ideas’ are metaphysical? Is he aware that ISIL has a metaphysical ‘ideology’ based upon the Holy Quran? Does he understand that the ‘ideas’ of ISIL derive from the Quran and the metaphysical WORDS within this Holy Islamic Book? Does he comprehend that ‘ideas’ (spiritual in nature) ultimately derive from a Higher Metaphysical Realm? Is he aware that the leaders of ISIL believe in a Higher Source (called Allah) as their ultimate AUTHORITY?

ISIL leaders believe in a Holy Islamic Book called the Quran. This is their CONSTITUTION!  Are you aware of this? The American military machine can not eliminate/destroy metaphysical ‘words’ and ‘ideas’! What we need to do is ‘challenge’ their metaphysical ‘ideas’! Who understands?

I would fully agree with General Dempsey that there is NO PURE MILITARY SOLUTION going forward. America is promoting a Might makes Right philosophy (in the Middle East) which is destined for total failure (in time). What the General is fighting is an ‘ideology’ (set of ideas) which he can not eliminate via the mighty killing machine called the American Military. He and his military machine can KILL all the flesh and blood bodies in this arena and yet when all is destroyed and degraded we will be back to SQUARE ONE…(the 1400 year ‘ideology’ of Islam) will remain and NEW leaders will emerge to challenge the Might makes Right philosophy of America. So far America has spent multi-trillions ($) to wage war over in Iraq, Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, and Gaza. We have been waging war for some 13 years (with thousands of American soldiers killed and multi-thousands injured). What has been the result? Are we not back to Square One?

General Dempsey stated to Senators that there is ‘NO pure military solution’ when it comes to ISIL! Yet, he advocates more military might anyway! Why? What a paradox in his thinking!

After some 13 years of fighting and killing, the ideology of Muslims (with their various sects and interpretations of the Quran) has not changed one iota. Sunni’s dislike Shia. Shia dislike Sunni’s. Kurds want independence from both. Hezbollah, Hamas, Al queda all have their separate agendas and ideologies. Assad hates America’s policies of regime change (via military MIGHT). All strong Islamic leaders basically hate the Great Satan, called America. Why do these people of the Quran hate America and Israel (the Great Satan and the little satan)? First of all they look at the mess America has created within their own country and they do not desire our American values (called Democracy) where Rulership and Law is imposed by frail imperfect human leaders. Their ‘constitution’ is the Quran and the ‘words’ which Allah revealed to their prophet, Muhammad. America, however, does not seem to ‘get’ this message! Why? America pursues their own metaphysical realities (desiring everyone to conform)! Is this reality?

This message from the Quran could ‘challenge’ the behavior of ISIL leaders! Our American elite might also think on this message of Islam! 

Agree or disagree, metaphysical ‘words’ create beliefs! Beliefs create behavior! Bombs can not destroy BELIEFS!

First of all, the entire metaphysical doctrine of reality espoused by Muslims is mostly rejected as fantasy by most American elites. Who within the American elite have read the Quran? Who discerns the meaning of the metaphysical ‘words’ within this Holy Book? Who recognizes that ‘words’ and ‘ideologies’ are metaphysical realities? Where do ‘words’ ultimately derive from? From what metaphysical SOURCE did Muhammad receive his ‘words’ (which then became the Quran)? Do any of our elite policymakers understand? I don’t think so! All the American elite seem to discern is the concept of Might makes Right and the concept that the American military will prevail via physical destruction of ‘flesh and blood’ bodies! What a shame! What a lack of discernment of the metaphysical realities which motivate these Islamic warriors (who totally believe in their Quran and their prophet’s revelation). Yes, I do not agree with their interpretations of their Quran and many of their doctrines but, nonetheless, THEY do believe these ‘words’!

Read these ‘words’ from the Quran: Sura 5:  

55. Your (real) friends are (no less than) Allah, His Messenger, and the (fellowship of) believers,- those who establish regular prayers and regular charity, and they bow down humbly (in worship).

56. As to those who turn (for friendship) to Allah, His Messenger, and the (fellowship of) believers,- it is the fellowship of Allah that must certainly triumph.

57. O ye who believe! take not for friends and protectors those who take your religion for a mockery or sport,- whether among those who received the Scripture before you, or among those who reject Faith; but fear ye Allah, if ye have faith (indeed).

58. When ye proclaim your call to prayer they take it (but) as mockery and sport; that is because they are a people without understanding.

59. Say: “O people of the Book! Do ye disapprove of us for no other reason than that we believe in Allah, and the revelation that hath come to us and that which came before (us), and (perhaps) that most of you are rebellious and disobedient?”

60. Say: “Shall I point out to you something much worse than this, (as judged) by the treatment it received from Allah. those who incurred the curse of Allah and His wrath, those of whom some He transformed into apes and swine, those who worshipped evil;- these are (many times) worse in rank, and far more astray from the even path!”


We war not against ‘flesh and blood’ bodies (as our American military machine assumes) BUT we do war against HIGHER forces and sources within the realm of CONSCIOUSNESS (that which is invisible to the mind/brain of our political/military establishment). ISIL is a group of metaphysical believers (in the metaphysical ‘words’ revealed to a prophet called Muhammad). These believers read their Quran and then derive their interpretations of what is being implied (the meaning of these words). Allah is their HIGHER Source as they ‘believe’ that the ‘words’ within this Quran derive from Allah! Can you discern this reality? Allah is who these warriors ‘report’ to (ultimately)! They can not be overcome via America’s military might (drones, missiles, bombs, destruction, degrading, or similar). When all the destruction is over, we (the Great Satan) END up back at ‘square one’ (where we started after 911). Think and grow in wisdom! I am:
