Psyops og ukonvensjonell krigføring
Psyops-frimerke fra krigen, fra Psywar.org
Indeed, FM 3-05.130 explicitly states that its «strategic purpose [is] to gain or maintain control or influence over the population and to support that population through political, psychological, and economic methods.» While both IW and UW seek to influence «relevant populations,» UW in contrast to IW, «is always conducted by, with, or through irregular forces.» In other words, local surrogates drawn from relevant far-right and/or organized crime-linked assets are the means of eliciting «influence» over «relevant populations.»
In Bosnia and Kosovo during the 1990s, «irregular forces» deployed during U.S./NATO destabilization operations in the former Yugoslavia included elements of the Afghan-Arab database of disposable intelligence assets, e.g. al-Qaeda, which have been linked to the CIA, Britain’s MI6, Germany’s Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND) and Pakistan’s Inter Services Intelligence agency (ISI), as well as long-established drug, arms and human trafficking networks aligned with the Albanian and Turkish Mafias. Indeed, «irregular forces» such as the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) demonstrated all of these relationships in spades.
According to FM 3-05.130, the constituent elements of contemporary IW theory include: Insurgency; COIN (counterinsurgency); UW; Terrorism; CT (counterterrorism); FID (foreign internal defense); Stability, security, transition, and reconstruction (SSTR) operations; Strategic communication (SC); PSYOP; Civil-military operations (CMO); Information operations (IO); Intelligence and counterintelligence (CI) activities; Transnational criminal activities, including narco-trafficking, illicit arms dealing, and illegal financial transactions that support or sustain IW; and Law enforcement activities focused on countering irregular adversaries. (Unconventional Warfare, p. 1-5)
Its but a short step as far as it goes, from citing the elements of UW to deploying the most dubious players as strategic assets in planetary-wide U.S. destabilization operations.
