Viewing conflicts through the eye of Counterinsurgency COIN – Since 2007
Well it is funny. The same things I have thought a lot about over the weekend seem to be the same things I recieved letters asking for more information about. This week I will be focusing on Afghanistan a lot and also on how we all need to work to create more sources of factual and good/positive news on Iraq and afghanistan. It is one of my goals to help create these new News Medias to help fight against the overwhelming proaganda the terror machine is generating. Also I feel the terror proaganda machine is focusing on Iraq as they feel they are losing on the ground. If you have a chance to read the counterinsurgency info by John Nagl and Roger Trinquier, you will find that proaganda is a big part of any terror machine (….look at Hitler and Gerbal). Today many News Medias are unknowinly falling into the grip of terror popaganda. They air videos from You Tube and there is less reporting on progress. Also less reporters in the field. This is because it’s way cheaper for Big Media to download a terrrorists video (rather than collect news). Also bad news attracts more public attention and Big Media makes Big Money off the bad news! These things must change if we wish to defeat the bad guys who kill innocent citzens, and create terror. One of the terrorists aims is to make citizens doubt their governments ability to protect them. So it is vital we don’t let the terorists do this.
