- Seventeen years after the 9/11 attacks — and 30 years after the founding of al Qaeda — there is no end in sight to the wars against jihadists.
- Like communist groups in the 20th century, jihadist groups are likely to split further in the 21st century due to differences in personality, theology and vision.
- Because military might is not enough to vanquish jihadists, governments such as the United States will also continue their efforts to defeat militants on an ideological level.
