The global war on terror, now almost a generation old, will never be won with treacherous allies, such as jihadist rebels and Islamist rulers. Rather, stemming the spread of the Islamist ideology, which has fostered “jihad factories” and threatens the security of countries as diverse as the U.S. and China, holds the key to containing terrorism.

Having incubated the Daesh in its global war on terror, the US must take the responsibility to destroy it. Washington cannot sit back and expect the international community to defeat the Daesh forces without US leadership.

Effective cooperation among all nations to throttle terrorists’ means of fund-raising – particularly oil deals -- is urgently needed in the global war against terrorism. But that short-term goal must be followed by a long-term objective: stability in the Mideast region.

Presently, public sentiment to minimize the risk of terror is on the rise, one of the factors prompting the US to reassess its strategic goals in the Middle East. The result is a more united front in the war against terrorism.

The debate about unauthorized immigrants and legal immigrants has until now mostly focused on their impact on US employment and economic growth. However, after the Paris terrorist attack, the issue has evolved into a national-security issue, stirring arguments about America’s core values as a presidential election looms.

The global community needs the participation of countries where the IS and other terror groups have made their bases, with the help and backing of the broad masses of Muslim people in the region. Outside force has proven to be inadequate to eliminate the violence and the root causes behind it, and serious nation-building is required.

While outside interference in Middle Eastern affairs has done nothing to improve the employment situation, build strong and efficient political structure, and prompt a solid union against terrorism, a kind of regional security structure including major regional powers and external powers is urgently needed. In this regard, the U.S. can do a lot, and China’s Belt and Road Initiative should be another opportunity for a fresh approach.

The U.S. must shoulder the responsibility of uniting the civilized world against terrorists and extremists, leading an effort to set aside differences among allies so that they can focus on a whole-hearted effort to eliminate this global threat.

The war against terrorists in Syria should not become a battlefield between the United States and Russia. If the United States and Russia choose confrontation, neither side will win, only wreaking havoc for the rest for the rest of the world.

In order to defeat IS, action needs to be taken well beyond Iraq and Syria. The entire campaign will not be measured in months. It needs to be a global, multi-pronged and long-term battle and requires global input and cooperation to extirpate this universal scourge.
