Irregular warfare is far more varied than conventional conflict: hence the importance of an intellectual framework that is coherent enough to provide guidance, and flexible enough to adapt to circumstances.
American counterinsurgency practice rests on a number of assumptions: that the decisive effort is rarely military (although security is the essential prerequisite for success); that our efforts must be directed to the creation of local and national governmental structures that will serve their populations, and, over time, replace the efforts of foreign partners; that superior knowledge, and in particular, understanding of the ‘human terrain’ is essential; and that we must have the patience to persevere in what will necessarily prove long struggles.
Insurgency, however, can and will flourish in the modern environment. The strains created by globalization, by the collapse of weak state structures, by demographic, environmental, and economic pressures, by the ease of cooperation among insurgent groups and criminals, and by the appearance of destructive radical ideologies, all augur a period in which free and moderate governance is at risk.
Insurgency is the organized use of subversion and violence to seize, nullify or challenge political control of a region. As such, it is primarily a political struggle, in which both sides use armed force to create space for their political, economic and influence activities to be effective. Insurgency is not always conducted by a single group with a centralized, military-style command structure, but may involve a complex matrix of different actors with various aims, loosely connected in dynamic and non-hierarchical networks.

To be successful, insurgencies require charismatic leadership, supporters, recruits, supplies, safe havens and funding (often from illicit activities). They only need the active support of a few enabling individuals, but the passive acquiescence of a large proportion of the contested population will give a higher probability of success. This is best achieved when the political cause of the insurgency has strong appeal, manipulating religious, tribal or local identity to exploit common societal grievances or needs.
Insurgents seek to gain control of populations through a combination of persuasion, subversion and coercion while using guerrilla tactics to offset the strengths of government security forces. Their intent is usually to protract the struggle, exhaust the government and win sufficient popular support to force capitulation or political accommodation. Consequently, insurgencies evolve through a series of stages, though the progression and outcome will be different in almost every case.
John is his name, he’s not Jr. and he doesn’t mind that you think he’s dead, or alive. What he cares about is that people awaken and save America from what Edward Snowden called the Architecture of Oppression. What he cares about is that you act as a Patriot and protect Old Glory.
America is an idea, it’s also two continents and half the world, more or less but it’s also the progeny of the French Revolution and hundreds of years of ignorance and suffering. Now that little idea has grown to be wise with a remnant of citizens willing to fight to the death to save America – Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Where we go one, we go all! WWG1WGA is our mantra and we are unstoppable.
One of our obstacles is the huge population that have been vaccinated already, their children are all fine and even though we all heard of others less fortunate that experienced vaccine shock horrors, their people seem safe, so therefore everyone else should have to get the shot. Herein lies the issue and why it’s nearly impossible expecting any sympathy from so many, especially healthcare workers. It seems reasonable to make vaccine mandatory for travel, school, work and therefore everyone.
Bill Gates is Evil and GVAP is Architecture of Oppression
Even if vaccines contained no human fetal tissue, or any animal cells, mercury or formaldehyde etc… (note, currently none exist) it’s still a really bad idea to make it mandatory. How can a woman have control over whether she aborts a baby in late term but she can’t refuse the vaccine?
Contact Tracing is the end of privacy, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and World Health Organization is a foreign agency, accused of crimes of genocide in Ethiopia and incredibly inept at predicting Covid19, This WHO criminal organization is a rouge insurgent operation that must be stopped.
Where we go one, we go all!
