Gen. George W. Casey Jr. quote
Army Chief of Staff Gen. George W. Casey Jr., to the Senate Armed Services Committee Nov. 15.

Global terrorism and extremist ideologies are a reality. As I look to the future, I believe the next decades will be one of what I call persistent conflict. This a period of protracted confrontation among states, non-state and individual actors who are increasingly willing to use violence to accomplish their political and ideological ends.
