Ex-SEAL Gilliam: World Must Unite to 'Eradicate' Mideast 'Chaos'

By    |   Friday, 22 May 2015 07:09 PM

The world must adopt a rock-solid allied strategy to crush the Islamic State (ISIS) — just as it did with Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany during World War II, former Navy SEAL and FBI agent Jonathan Gilliam tells Newsmax TV.

"I am of the mindset that we need to have a coalition of world governments going in there together to strike and just pretty much eradicate all this chaos that's coming out of the Middle East," Gilliam said Friday to Rick Ungar, guest host of "The Steve Malzberg Show."

"I know this sounds like a very egotistical statement from a military standpoint, but nobody fights like we do. This is our modern era. We're the warriors in this era and the war powers. We need to take the lead.

"But we also need to incorporate all the Western countries that are being affected by this. The Middle East has this Shiite and Sunni civil war that's going on that's 1,400 years old. At the same time, there's a global moment that's going on, and all the stuff that's happening in the Middle East is infecting the rest of the world like a cancer.

That's where a world alliance comes in, Gilliam says

"The world needs to get a hold on this just like they got a hold on Hitler, and they need to go in there and solve it. If we leave it up to them, it will not be fixed. It just will not be fixed," he said.

Gilliam — president of the U.S. Continued Service, which helps employ military veterans — said that once a "fact-based solution" to end the threat of ISIS is formulated, Americans will wholeheartedly get behind the plan.

"They may not like it, but they will see in the end that this is what had to be done," he said.
