A war without traditional weapons

Let's say there is a unsigned agreement between the world powers that nuclear weapons and attacking with traditional armies was off the table.

But other methods of attacking your enemy or those you are in competition with is allowed..

So what would some of these out of the box methods one could use to attack and weaken enemy countries?

There are sanctions
You can hold back relief money

You can cause a natural disaster

You can promote anti government groups to bring down larger governments.

You can introduce chemicals into the water supply to give boys boobs and girls mustaches

You can organize caravans to overwhelm your enemies border.

You can push the idea of defunding the police and military.

You can make education less productive by introducing new teaching forms

You can infiltrate universities and teach the young adults to be against their native country.

You can infiltrate govenment sectors with spies

Are people even aware of these attacks?

Reminds me of an Iman I heard preaching to muslims. Let the Americans wait with their guns and ammo. We are at war with them and they are so ignorant they do not even know we are attacking and infiltrating every day.

By the time they want to use their weapons it will be too late

And are the Democrats blind to such methods of attacking or are they the attackers?

Use propaganda to destroy family units and values coupled with using cheap labor to ruin a counties manufacturing base.

You forgot bio weapons = COVID-19

The lockdowns did an excellent job of dismantling our economy.

Oh yeah, its all 4th and 5th gen warfare now. The only traditonal conflicts are proxy wars in "random" countries.

I would even go so far as to say that organizations like the UN, WHO, WEF, etc. have specialized in 4th/5th gen warfare.

We had Michael Aquino here on ATS for an AMA, and he talked about it a lot too. Dunno that Aquino himself is trustworthy, but his book MindWar is quite a fascinating read.

The nature of how this conflict has played out also gets rather interesting, where traditional borders are not a good indicator for "side" (which is more easily delineated by corporate & NGO allegiances).

In a generation or two.. maybe three.. people will look back on this like the transition from trench warfare to more "modern" tactics/strategies later used in WWII. However, a lot of the institutions we would rely on to fight back in meaningful ways do not appear to be on our side.

Control a country's media such that its journalism undermines its homeland

Control a country's finances by ownership of banks etc. Ideal goal is to get them to accept a currency that is controlled by you or your friends.

This is happening in Europe, practiced by European countries upon other European countries.

Every war is fought with non-traditional methods.

Remember the old adage, "Everyone is prepared to fight the last war." Remember the French built the Maginot Line believing that WW2 would be trench warfare like WW1, but the non-traditional Blitzkrieg methods employed by the Germans made the Line useless.

The Cold War was unlike those that came before it. It was a war of economics and propaganda. The West had pocket aces: the world's reserve currency and a presumably unbiased media. The Soviet Union had to collapse eventually or go nuclear.

Today's war is all about information and population control. The winner will be the side that can best maximize national productivity by controlling what their populations see, hear, and believe.

Just for a little help to those out there that want to learn how to hack for fun and profit ;-)

First of, KALI, excellent Debian based OS with a huge number of hacking/exploitation tools. Best to use this first, say on a little laptop when out an about to acquire WiFi passwords ;-) Then write down the SSID's and passwords, then shut down Kali. You can reboot Kali into TOR after the fact on reboot or you can use TAILS.

Once you have the access to WiFi or some network, boot TAILS from the flash drive (you will have made one, 8G or higher is good). From tails, you are operating in TOR consistently, your communications is reasonably encrypted and your IPs are masked. If you want serious fun add a mac address spoofer ;-) Once in TAILS you can use web based apps like protonmail with pretty good security and since you are using a "Unix" based OS, you can hack the world.

Cheers - Dave

I agree that the best way to fight without armies is to provide your enemy with a solid electrical grid and wire them up with free high-speed Internet.

Wars these days are all about who gets to control the markets, and if you can get your enemies to see the advantages of buying and selling things while being connected to the entire world, you've basically won the war. You beat them with Amazon.

Which of course begs the question, "Who or what are you personally really fighting for?" Capitalism versus Communism? The incredible convenience of having pretty much everything you need delivered to your door faster than you could probably go out and find and buy it?

We already fought this war and won! Or lost! Hard to tell the difference.
