Viewing conflicts through the eye of Counterinsurgency COIN – Since 2007
Below is a great Article by “The Anthropologist” a Hacker that helps keep us all safe from the bad guys.
ISIS is a recurring paradigm. Al Qaeda, Taliban, ISIS. 14 YRS of war and terrorism is spreading.
At the end of WWII war ended, at that time carpet bombing of civilian populations was SOP, for both sides.
The intent behind bombing civilian populations was to get the people to withdraw popular support for
Governments and end the war. It worked the populations were so sick of war and death
there were no Nazi resistance groups.
In an effort to be more humane war has for the most part abandoned carpet bombing of civilian populations in
favor of limiting collateral deaths.
Unfortunately this more humane approach may be fueling terrorism, people become revenge terrorist.
Arab spring was a valiant effort to try something else as terrorism wasn’t effective method of change.
But it was squandered, didn’t realize the support it needed to become effective.
If there would have been 3 or 4 successful Arab springs effective in making changes there would be no ISIS.
The world does not understand the terrorist paradigm. They are so angry fathers will strap on a suicide bomb
and blow themselves up.
We are missing the point.
Killing terrorist is a stop gap measure.
It doesn’t stop terrorism.
