    Default Responding to Russian Information Warfare

    Two versions of this article by Dr Rod Thornton, now @ Kings War Studies, are available and the titles used vary. His bio:http://www.kcl.ac.uk/sspp/department.../thornton.aspx

    An Abstract:
    While Western militaries recognise the logic and necessity of ‘irregular warfare’ in their military operations, the manifold aspects of irregular fighting have yet to be mastered fully. Information warfare, for example, appears to be a tool more capably employed by Russia, to the detriment of NATO. Rod Thornton explains how and why Russia has ‘won’ in Crimea by affording subversive information campaigns primacy in its military operations. Acknowledging the twofold constraints of international law and co-ordination that face Western governments seeking to play the same game, Thornton nonetheless expounds how the West might better pursue asymmetry in the security realm.
    The shorter version 'Russian Hybrid Warfare' is via this blogsite:http://defenceindepth.co/2015/10/12/...ybrid-warfare/

    The full version from the RUSI Journal is fully available, unusually IMHO, on:
    http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/....2015.1079047.

    Default The concept of hybrid war says more about our fears

    Via the blog Defence-in-Depth a comment by Dr Chris Tuck, which opens with:
    Why does hybrid war cast such a long shadow over Western conceptions of future threats? The ubiquity of the idea of hybrid war is interesting given the many serious problems with the concept.
    The comment ends with:
    We are afraid; and because of this we have invented for ourselves the perfect enemy. We feel increasingly insecure, increasingly fearful; we have as a consequence created the image of a potent new threat from powerful adversaries who suffer none of our problems and by-pass our strengths. But intellectually, the concept of hybrid war says more about our fears than it does about any genuinely new model of war. This is not to say that that the current security environment isn’t difficult and dangerous. However, if we stopped connecting together all of our difficulties, multiplying them by the assumption of superior adversaries and then labelling them hybrid war, we might find these challenges easier to address.
