Precisely why I said it's just an excuse for perpetual war. You do not defeat an ideology with bombs and missiles. You defeat it by PROVING it incorrect. However, since there ideology is essentially based upon the idea that the governments of the world are corrupt that's kind of difficult to do. The world's governments have no REAL rebuttal to that, so instead of attempting to prove the ideology incorrect, which they cannot, they have decided to make endless "profit" off of war and death.

What gets me is that we focus on what the elite do and don't want. What about what the commom man, i.e humanity wants? Why has that been lost in the proverbial mix?

I've had a discussion with someone who says the ISIS threat has been overrated indeed. He argues Ebola is the bigger threat. But media tries to overplay the other.
“Criticism toward Israel has become such a social and political taboo that the public has been blinded to the truth. People can no longer see, let alone fathom, that Israel has become just as radical, intolerant and extreme in its views as Islamists have proven to be. I would actually argue that ISIS [Islamic State of Iraq and Syria] carries disturbing Zionist characteristics, not only in its ideology but its policies, even though it claims to seek to destroy Israel.”
