of!Military!Theory!at!the!Marine!Corps!University,!explains!that!the!confusion!of!our!

character+of+the+enemy s+ideology+should+not+be+discussed,+
and+that+we+need+not+address+it,+but+instead+should+use+
the+phrase,+ Violent+Extremism +to+describe+our+foe+and+
thus+avoid+any+unnecessary+unpleasantness.++The+second+
is+that+even+if+we+could+demonstrate+clear:headedness+on+
the+issue+and+recognize+the+religious+ideology+of+al+Qaeda+
and+its+associated+movements+for+what+it+is,+a+form+of+
hybrid+totalitarianism,+we+still+drastically+lack+the+
institutional+ability+to+analyze+and+comprehend+the+world+
view+of+this+enemy+and+therefore+its+strategic+mindset+and+
ultimate+objectives. 80+++

not+in+theory+perhaps+but+in+actual+fact,+to+the+conclusion+
that+it+cannot+really+be+so+very+important+whether+in+
