Newer Doctrines for Newer Wars

On the Memorial Day, some thoughts on the convergence of revolutions in technology and war fare-

 

War – 

War is an openly declared state of organized conflict, typified by extreme aggression, societal disruption, and high mortality

1) Disrupting command and control objects is the primary stage of attack. Evading detection of your own command and control objects while retaining secure channels of communication with redundant lines of control is the primary stage of defense.

2) Pre emptive strikes are in. Reactive all out wars are out. Countries will no longer “declare war” before going to war. They already dont.

3) Commando /Special Forces/Terror strikes /Guerrilla warfare weapons, tactics and technology will have a big demand. So will be specialist trainers.

4) Improving the predictability of your own detect and destroy mechanisms, and disrupting the predictability of enemy detect and react mechanisms will be hugely in- even more than commissioning one more submarine and one more aircraft type.

5) Countries will revert to ancient tribal paradigms in fast shifting alliances for economics as well as geo politics. Very stupidly religion can be  factor in warfare even in the 21 st century.

 

6) Number of Kills per Weapons fired will converge to a constant .  Risks of secondary collateral damage will need to have a higher weight-age because they spur more retal attacks. Fewer prisoner of wars, higher KIA/ MIA ratio.

7) Fewer civilian casualties than all previous wars. This includes fewer civilian casualties even in nuclear war than previous nuclear scenarios.

8) War is a business. It will not be allowed to disrupt global supply chains for more than 2-3 weeks (or inventory replenishment of critical goods and /or services). commodities will lead to wars explicitly, especially since nuclear energy is discredited and carbon energy is diminishing. Expect synchronization with financial derivatives activity. War futures anyone.

9) The Geneva Convention is overdue for an update. Call it Geneva Convention 3.0 United Nations will remain critical to preventing or hastening global conflicts (remember the league of extra ordinary nations .)

10) Economic weapons, climate changing weapons, and sky weapons will emerge. Expect newer kinds of gun powder to be invented. Cyber weapons and hackers will be in demand . Thats the only bright spot.

Happy Memorial Day.

 

Enjoy that freedom to eat an barbecue- it was paid for in more blood than you will ever care to know.

 

Weather Modifying Weapons

This is part of a continuing series of theoretical weapons. The weapons are theoretical as the United Nations has already banned the weapons (but not banned the building of research of defense from these weapons).

Possible applications of weather modifying weapons.

1) Use surface modifiers on oceans including but not limited to submerged nuclear heaters, airborne solar powered  lasers, surface spreaders like oil slicks. This will help modify the temperature of the ocean in certain critical areas  at critical times, influencing weather esp winds that bring rains.

Example- Modifying or Enhancing El Nino to influence rain to specific countries.

2) Use of air borne or aircraft borne lasers to start forest fires

3) Use of lasers to enhance the rate of melting of strategic glaciers.

4) Modify and interfere with the timing of an active volcano to prevent big rupture, rather to go for controlled releases.

5) Use of harmonics to influence seismic wave activity in geological reasons.

Weather Weapons

possible weapons to modify weather and /or influence psychological reactions in people/mass events.

1) use of lasers to create hot spots on ocean ,sea surfaces for clouds and pressure winds

2) controlled demolitions to alter river trajectory

3) controlled sub terranean demolitions to influence water table levels

4) introduction of aerial oxidants and chemical leaching agents to alter soil productivity, water retention.

5) controlled sub nuclear explosions on glaciers as well as ice deposits.

6) MODIFICATION of ambient light /rain/sleet to influence or encourage dissent in populations usually in combination with some or all of the above.

the name of the game is the art of fighting a war without fighting a war. subtlety does it.

countries doing it are us, supported by pan democracies, china, and russia. may we live in interesting times
