That non-geocentric trans-national entity thing....

So, how does one fight one of these things, given that there are no clearly defined boundaries, it's difficult/impossible to force a decisive battle, and the makeup/players is/are continually shifting?

Where are the lines of communications? What is their source of strategic and operational strength(s)?

How do you fight what you can only roughly define? Where do you focus your efforts? How do you fight a ideological and cultural "war" that spans nations, continents, tribes and economic lines? And that is multi-generational?

And NOT fighting is simply not an option? Nor is appeasement, or capitulation.
