Dempsey: ISIS Will ‘Eventually Collapse Under Its Own Contradiction’

On “Fox News Sunday,” the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey said  “contradiction,” not counterterrorism will eventually defeat ISIS.

Dempsey said, “One of the things I said right from the start is that a group that embraces such a radical ideology has to maintain momentum in order to succeed, in order to maintain its credibility with the very people it’s trying to influence. So tactically we have destroyed a lot of their equipment, we’ve reversed some of their territorial gains, we’ve had an impact on their leadership, their command and control and logistics. What will eventually cause the defeat of ISIL is that it will collapse under its own contradictions. Frankly when the populations in which it trying to maneuver realize that ideology is not to their future benefit.”
