الموقف النهائى

This term is commonly expressed in "US Military English" =الموقف النهائي

It is usually associated with discussion of the Military Decision-Making Process, or MDMP, which is used by the commanders and staffs of units in the US Army (the US Marine Corps has a different term for the same process).

Hope this helps. Khair, in shaa' Allah.
