  • This unsettling Army recruitment video is a master class in psychological
           warfare

    • Authors: Dave Maxwell
      Abstract: This unsettling Army recruitment video is a master class in psychological warfare The must watch video is at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch'v=VA4e0NqyYMw This is so important I am not waiting until tomorrow to send this out.  I really want to highlight it. Kudos to 4th PSYOP Group. Whenever anyone asks me what is PSYOP I will be showing this video from now on.  This is very well done though I know it will generate a lot of controversy.  This illustrates irregular war thinking* better than anything else I have seen in recent years. I will be linking this video in every future paper I write on irregular, unconventional, and political warfare.
      “Irregular Warfare Thinking”*
      Because IW is the dominant form of war in the emergent human domain.  
      We need to infuse “irregular warfare thinking”* into DOD and “political warfare thinking” into the US government.
      *What is “Irregular warfare thinking'”  It is thinking about the human element in the full spectrum of competition and conflict up to and including conventional and nuclear war. It includes but is not limited to all aspects of lawlessness, subversion, insurgency, terrorism, political resistance, non-violent resistance, political violence, urban operations, stability operations, post-conflict operations, cyber operations, operations in the information environment  (e.g., strategic influence through information advantage, information and influence activities, public diplomacy, psychological operations, military information support operations, public affairs), working through, with and by indigenous forces and populations, irregular warfare, political warfare, economic warfare, alliances, diplomacy, and statecraft in all regions of the world.  
      Irregular warfare is the military contribution to political warfare.  Political warfare is the action of the whole of government in strategic competition.

  • Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine – Can the Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT)
           Survive'  

    • Authors: Dave Maxwell
      Abstract: Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine – Can the Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) Survive'  Dave MaxwellThu, 05/12/2022 - 3:29pm The world woke up on February 24, 2022, to the news of Russian military forces moving into Ukraine under the guise of protecting dual Russian-Ukrainian nationalist interest. This left the rest of the world, most notably former nuclear weapons states (NWS) and those that fall under the security umbrella of an NWS wondering - how might this invasion affect them. The Russian military’s early strategy has perplexed many experts and observers, and in smaller circles - was predicted. Unfortunately, the more protracted this war, the more barbaric and political it has become. This military action was preceded by Russia’s invasion and annexation of Crimea in March 2014.

    • Authors: Dave Maxwell
      Abstract: Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning and the Future of National SecurityDave MaxwellWed, 05/11/2022 - 10:43am Hundreds of billions in public and private capital is being invested in AI and Machine Learning companies. The number of patents filed in 2021 is more than 30 times higher than in 2015 as companies and countries across the world have realized that AI and Machine Learning will be a major disruptor and potentially change the balance of military power. Until recently, the hype exceeded reality. Today, however, advances in AI in several important areas equal and even surpass human capabilities. If you haven’t paid attention, now’s the time.

  • It's time for a new U.S.-Korea alliance for a free, unified peninsula

    • Authors: Dave Maxwell
      Abstract: It's time for a new U.S.-Korea alliance for a free, unified peninsula It's time for a new U.S.-Korea alliance for a free, unified peninsulaBy David Maxwell & Chung Kyung-younghttps://www.upi.com/Voices/2022/05/10/Korean-US-alliance-north-korea-peace/2101652190076/upi.com1/4A photo released April 17 by the official North Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) shows the test-fire of a new type of tactical guided weapon from an undisclosed location. Photo by KCNA/ EPA-EFE May 10 (UPI) -- A small group of civil society stakeholders from the Republic of Korea (South Korea), North Korea, the United States, Japan and China recently convened in the mountains of Virginia to address the security situation on the Korean Peninsula and examine what it will take to bring peace, prosperity and respect for human rights to all Koreans on both sides.This followed a major conference held by the Global Peace Foundation, "U.S.-ROK Alliance for A Free and Unified Korea." For more than seven decades, the complexity and uncertainty in Northeast Asia have led to a "strategic planning paralysis" that allowed only thinking about the symptoms and not treatment of the root cause of insecurity and suffering. The overwhelming consensus among the participants was that the primary reason for the current situation is the division of the Korean Peninsula since 1945.The ROK-U.S. alliance's nearly sole focus has been on security. The alliance has successfully deterred a resumption of hostilities since 1953 and this has allowed the miraculous political, economic, and cultural achievements of the ROK. However, the threat from the Kim family regime has only grown. Today, the North is a rogue and failing nation that has weapons of mass destruction and the means to deliver them on the peninsula, throughout the region, and possibly even to the U.S. homeland. For more than three decades, the ROK and United States, as well as China, Russia and Japan, have failed to negotiate the denuclearization of the North.What we have learned is that the Kim family regime continues to execute a dual focused strategy of political warfare and blackmail diplomacy combined with developing advanced warfighting capabilities. These two lines of effort serve two objectives: deterrence against the alliance and domination of the peninsula under northern rule. Kim Jong Un demonstrated his hostile policy toward the ROK and United States with 15 missile tests since January, possible preparation for a nuclear test and statements threatening a pre-emptive strike.Continued at this link: https://www.upi.com/Voices/2022/05/10/Korean-US-alliance-north-korea-peace/2101652190076/ Dave MaxwellTue, 05/10/2022 - 11:17amRead more about It's time for a new U.S.-Korea alliance for a free, unified peninsulaLog in or register to post comments

    • Authors: Dave Maxwell
      Abstract: Are We Informationally Disadvantaged' The Realities of Information War in UkraineDave MaxwellMon, 05/09/2022 - 3:24pm The war in Ukraine stands out as the classic David and Goliath story between the larger, more powerful Russia and the smaller, more agile Ukraine. It is a tale of how Ukraine wielding the West’s spigot of truth, a deluge of TikTok videos, a band of Eastern European Elves, and Elon Musk’s satellite constellation, converged information power to challenge Russia’s firehose of falsehoods. Historians will study this conflict for years to come, and the information lessons are critical, especially to the US Army as it develops its emerging information advantage concept.

  • Vo Nguyen Giáp: Svechin’s Operational Artist

    • Authors: Dave Maxwell
      Abstract: Vo Nguyen Giáp: Svechin’s Operational ArtistDave MaxwellMon, 05/09/2022 - 9:21am In the cauldron of World War I, fire and steel had reduced the old paradigms formulated by titanic figures in military history. Modern weapon advances had expanded the battlefield, which had become less dense but more lethal. Following the Great War then the subsequent Russian Civil War, Russian officers and thinkers deliberated these new realities in preparation for the next modern war. This cohort greatly expanded the intellectual understanding of warfare. One of these voyenspets to rise through the discourse afterwards was General-Major Alexander Andreevich Svechin, who during a series of lectures at Moscow’s Academy of the General Staff in 1923-1924 first coined the term, “operational art.” Ironically, one of the greatest operational artists by Svechin’s own standards was first stepping into the classroom then, albeit over 4,000 miles southeast of his lecture hall. Fourteen years later Vo Nguyen Giáp received his law degree and began teaching. Over three decades after Svechin’s lectures in Moscow on May 7, 1954, Giáp decisively defeated the French Union Forces at Dien Bien Phu. Through Svechin’s lens, Giáp’s victory provided history a master class on the most exacting approaches to operational art.

  • Forcing Design or Designing Force' The Reinvention of the Marine Corps

    • Authors: Dave Maxwell
      Abstract: Forcing Design or Designing Force' The Reinvention of the Marine CorpsDave MaxwellSat, 05/07/2022 - 9:59pm Two years ago, the Marine Corps embarked on a once-in-a-generation redesign intended to prepare it to fight with China. The decision was widely praised at the time. But in the last two months, a star-studded cast of former Marine generals, including every living Commandant of the Marine Corps and Secretary Mattis, have all denounced the plan in major national outlets like the Washington Post and Wall Street Journal. This article contributes to the debate in two ways: (1) by examining the operating concepts that underlie the Marine Corps’ plan, and (2) by evaluating these operating concepts in light of what we have learned from the Russia-Ukraine war. Operating concepts are the documents that detail, in theory, how the service intends to fight. The article proceeds by tracing the history of the redesign process, describing the operating concepts using published policy documents, and then evaluates them in light of the Russia-Ukraine war and possible Chinese invasion of Taiwan. The article concludes that these concepts do not adequately prepare the service for the next war.

  • The Croesus Delusion: Why We Habitually Misread Sun Tzu

    • Authors: Dave Maxwell
      Abstract: The Croesus Delusion: Why We Habitually Misread Sun TzuDave MaxwellSat, 05/07/2022 - 7:47am While Sun Tzu remains a cornerstone of every U.S. military officer’s professional military education, and is often viewed as a window into current Chinese strategic thinking, how well do we really understand the text' Have we subjected it to harsh philological, historical, and philosophical debates similar to the ones surrounding Clausewitz' This article will argue that we should remain skeptical over our modern interpretations of the work. This article highlights how even a phrase thought to be a bedrock concept of Sun Tzu, “Know the Enemy, Know Yourself,” is not quite what it seems when placed within its proper historical and textual roots. My hope is that we elevate the study of this enigmatic text from mere hagiography into a more historically grounded realm of debate.
