Quotes

"the nature of the threat is such that, as i mentioned, it will only be defeated when moderate arab and muslim populations in the region reject it. and therefore, the way forward seems to me to run clearly through a coalition of arab and muslim partners, and not through the ownership of the united states on this issue. and so the strategy does that" Dempsey said when asked whether he agrees with President Obama's plan to degrade and destroy the Islamic State
"this won't look like a shock-and-awe campaign, because that is just not how isil is organized" said Dempsey
"can they be defeated without addressing that part of the organization that resides in syria? the answer is no" Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff,  told reporters  at the Pentagon last month
