COVERT WAR

.

PURPOSE – UNIT

Covert Hybrid War is extremely powerful, likewise, is extremely dangerous.

The information flows which reside at the heart of the new globalisation are used by both aggressive and ‘friendly states with hostile intent’, to further their aims in subsequently deniable ways.

It has to be borne in mind that the internet poses an amalgam of both existential threat and opportunity. However, the internet as a vehicle forms a mere part of the conscious whole.

The aim must be firstly; to secure an advantage and thereby assist the United Kingdom in building resilience and secondly; to enhance covert war and to utilize it full force.

The risks at stake are indeed extreme, and constitute a fundamental threat to our sovereignty and self.

Covert (nonconventional) War is characterized as Fourth-Generation War; we can describe as more fluid, more decentralized, and asymmetrical than the warfare of the past.

Covert War is defined as being any type of nonconventional (non-official military) force engaged in largely asymmetrical combat against a traditional adversary. Taken together in a two-stage / two pronged approach; Colour Revolutions and Covert (nonconventional) War, representing the two components which constitute Hybrid War, and this, the new method of indirect warfare.

The closer that destabilization operations move toward their target system’s core, the lower the probability of direct warfare and the higher the chances that indirect means (Colour Revolutions and Covert War) will be appropriate.

Colour Revolutions and Covert War represent a new concept of state (system / collective) destabilization, for strategic deployment across the world.

Shock and awe campaigns of the past are arguably almost impossible to repeat owing to the changed international circumstances and enormous collateral (physical, financial, political) costs which they would entail. What can happen, however, are campaigns of indirect geopolitical sabotage under the guise of pro-democracy movements or externally supported civil conflicts. In fact, combining both of these is the perfect attack for dealing with large, complex and sophisticated collectives.

This approach succeeds by reaping chaos and creating forces which threaten to tear a targeted collective apart. It does not have to overthrow a government in order to be a success – all that has to happen is that a collective (sub system) becomes divided from the whole and large-scale uncertainty, the portent of social chaos, ensues – a geopolitical deadlock, which in turn presents an enormous challenge for the larger system to undertake initiatives beyond that of the directly destabilized part. They are deadlocked into dealing with it, whether they want to or not, and this places them on the strategic defensive.

It is the case that there will be increased emphasis on information warfare and Psychological Operations, perfectly meshing with the modus operandi of Colour Revolutions.

Psychological Operations are the dominant operational and strategic weapon in the form of, but not confined to; media/information intervention. A major target will be a population’s support of its government. News is a more powerful operational weapon than armoured infantry and divisions (and of course, WMD). The distinction between civilian and military is quickly fading, civilians being co-opted into fulfilling de-facto military roles

Hybrid War is thus; the epitome of Fourth-Generation War.

One can consider podiums upon which an opposing force does perform and these are; leadership; system essentials; infrastructure; population; fighting mechanisms.

THE OWL IS AWAKE

To shatter myths, one only has to look at where exactly they are coming from and at the historical seeds precipitating them. Let’s look at the nature of what we are subject to.

To shatter the illusions that beset us – these illusions which have largely supplanted reality itself, more as a disease at best, trying to eat away at our consciousness, and at worst, succeeding.

Romantic dogmatism is relentlessly imposed by electronic images, by make-believe entertainment, by nationalist rant and mantras fed to us via self-help gurus, by fake religious premise masquerading as truth and by political demagogues who promise to make the world (or their part of it) somehow ‘great again’ – In so doing, implanting completely false dreams and equally, false virtues.

To acknowledge the truth regarding ourselves means first confronting the wrong from without. This is symptomatic of a significant stratum of who would, if it were allowed, change us into them. An evil within themselves projected onto others to be eradicated.

The shift from innocence to obedience can be traced back to a thoroughly naturalistic origin and no other, to the fear that people feel when they confront the necessity for acting in accordance with knowledge of right and wrong. That in essence, people lack the strength, they lack the intellectual capacity to confront right and wrong and which makes them try to un-learn this knowledge and claim innocence, an innocence which is not there.

Do not want to know what is on the other side of the wall? There are so very many things in themselves, primarily that that the majority yonder do not want to know as they have erected a fortress of puritanism and relegated all of the life affirming passions to the basement, locked them up because it is seen as somehow wrong, it goes against this dogmatic and false ideal.

By becoming same, we lose not only the war, but everything.

Addendum – Seminar Notes Mind Scan. Covert Hybrid War

As we know, the objective of Hybrid War is to unsettle via externally provoked identity conflicts, be these ethnic, religious, regional, political, etc. within a targeted transit state

Let’s take an example from the current time, something someone else is doing. Russia’s Eurasian integration objectives and China’s OBOR projects are the targets of the US Hybrid War strategy, and this accordingly has opened a wide range of geographic battlefields, namely; the Greater Heartland, the Balkans, ASEAN, trans-oceanic Africa, and Latin America, that is, in identifying the vulnerabilities that each of the relevant transit states has to this hybrid / asymmetrical warfare.

Accordingly one has to incorporate the variables of; ethnicity, religion, history, administrative boundaries, physical geography, and socio-economic disparity in crafting comprehensive analyses that demonstrate each nation’s Hybrid War weaknesses. The objective is to illustrate the means that we might predictably employ in destabilising targeted states.

Hybrid War is thus one of the most significant strategic developments and the transitioning of Colour Revolutions to unconventional wars, it can be argued, should dominate the destabilising trends of the coming decades. Actually it is not that difficult to identify the regions and countries who are the most likely targets.

The key to the forecast is in accepting that Hybrid Wars are externally provoked asymmetrical conflicts founded upon sabotaging concrete geo-economic interests, and proceeding from this beginning point, it is relatively easy to pinpoint who the targets are.

The first thing to point out is that Hybrid War is never unleashed against an ally of the United Kingdom nor anywhere that we have pre-existing infrastructural interests. The chaotic processes that can be caused during the post-modern regime change are, arguably, not able to be fully controlled and could potentially engender the same type of geopolitical blow back – the same for example against the US that Washington is trying to directly or indirectly channel towards its multi-polar rivals. This is why we won’t ever attempt Hybrid War anywhere that it has interests which are too great to fail, although such an assessment is of course simultaneously relative and could quickly change depending on the geopolitical circumstances. Nevertheless, it remains that we will not ever intentionally sabotage our own interests unless there is a huge benefit in so doing, i.e.,for example  during a theater-wide retreat.

Once one has identified a target, one begins the search for the structural vulnerabilities that will be exploited in the looming Hybrid War. Contextually, these are not physical objects to be sabotaged such as highways, roads and power plants (although these too are noted, albeit by different destabilisation teams), but socio-political characteristics that are to be manipulated so to attractively emphasise a certain demographic separateness from the existing national fabric and thus legitimise forthcoming foreign-managed revolt against the authorities. The following are the most common socio-political structural vulnerabilities as they relate to the preparation for Hybrid War, and if each of these can be tied to a specific geographic location, then they become much more likely to be used as magnets in the run-up to the Colour Revolution and as preliminary territorial demarcations for the unconventional warfare aspect to follow :

history

ethnicity

socio-economic differences

religious beliefs

administrative boundaries

topography

Obviously the greater the overlap among each of these, the more powerful the Hybrid War’s potential power does become – with each overlapping variable exponentially multiplying the coming campaign’s overall viability.

Hybrid Wars are always preceded by a period of societal and structural qualification. The societal deals with the informational and soft power aspects that maximise key demographics acceptance of the oncoming destabilisation and guides into believing that some type of action  is required in order to change the current state of affairs. The structural concerns the various tricks that can be resorted to in order to have the target government unintentionally aggravate the various socio-political differences that have already been identified, with the goal of creating cleavages of identity resentment that are then more susceptible to societal qualification and subsequent NGO and other-directed political organising activity.

Regarding structural qualification and tactics inherent, the most commonly employed and globally recognised is of course that of applying sanctions, the implicit goal of which is to make things more difficult for the average person so that he or she becomes more amenable to the idea of regime change and is thus more easily moved into acting upon these externally inspired impulses. Less obvious are the more indirect, yet almost universally applied methods of achieving this goal, and this surrounds the power that we have to affect certain budgetary functions of targeted states, namely the amount of revenue that they receive and what precisely they spend it on.

For example; the global slump in energy and overall commodity prices has hit exporting states extraordinarily hard, many of who are disproportionately dependent on selling these resources in order to satisfy their corporate ends, and the decrease in revenue almost always leads to eventual cuts in social spending. Parallel with this, some states are facing security threats that they are forced to urgently respond to, thus necessitating them to unexpectedly budget more money to their defence programmes that could have otherwise been invested in social ones. On their own, each of these  is designed to decrease the government’s social expenditure so as to incubate the medium-term conditions necessary for enhancing the prospects of a Colour Revolution – the first stage of Hybrid Warfare. In the event that a state experiences both limited revenue intake and an unexpected need to hike its defence budget, then this consequently can have a compound effect on cutting social services and might even push the Colour Revolution time frame forward from the medium – to short-term, depending on the severity of the resultant domestic crisis and the success that the U.K. influenced NGOs have in politically organising the previously examined identity blocs against the government.
