So how is 'intense, slow-moving warfare between all species on the planet' a useful frame? Are my 'selfish genes' eventually out to get those of the bacteria in my gut?

Why would they?  They compete their rivals, and doing so in alliance with other genes, be them on the same chromosome or another, in the same cell or another.

Of course, MillMan's way of putting it as species competing with each other is misleading and too narrow. Say, lions don't compete with gazelles.
