    Default Gray Zone Warfare

    A series of videos from a couple years ago. About 20 minutes in total. Looking around the country and world they seem pretty prophetic. Things to be aware of for the state that the world is in. How does one run between the rain drops with these types of things? Needs further study. By everyone. The forth video on the use of ambiguous force seems to be playing out before our eyes... again. Also consider what Trump was doing to combat this and now what Sleepy Joe is doing to bend over for it.

    No joke. The more I learn the more I see I don't know. In a lot of these cases what I don't know will effect me. The annoying part is that most of it I have no chance of effecting short of suddenly having a robot army or a Gundam. I really wish I had a brain jack like the Matrix. So much info to absorb.

    Dorkface, many thanks for posting these. I hope that someone who supports Americas better interests are "gathering the dots" so that they may be "connected".

    Looks like these vids were published to YT in Dec 2018, so much has changed since then.... Socialists now occupy the White House and such....

    Proper development of the 'Warrior Spirit', training and physical conditioning before 'The Event' cannot be overstated.

    My 2c after watching these; Keep in mind I am not a national security expert by any means, but I know a few things about the cyber side (leaving it at that)...

    .

    This video series is a SALES PITCH for the think tanks producing it: CSIS, Cato, et al. What are they selling? Academic talking heads to consult, write papers, draft policy/legislation, and grow the government.

    .

    Russia is not a nation state threat to the USA. It’s semi capitalist now, but it has laws that turn a blind eye to crimes committed in the USA, so there are organized criminal groups operating from there stealing money from here through cyber. They’re a nuisance. Occasionally they roll up on these guys, or they get pinched when they go on “holiday” to a friendlier country.

    Russia is a threat to their former USSR states, like the Ukraine, though.

    As far as the “influence” or “information operations” there has been zero tangible evidence this can be fully attributed back to Russia. Russia is the left’s boogeyman to blame everything on, run headlines and talking points, and the average American is either too stupid, lazy, or otherwise engaged to look at the data and see this just doesn’t add up. (If you’re new to this idea, I recommend starting with Dan Bongino’s latest book.) On the cyber side, we have accusations of the DNC getting hacked by Russia (my review says this is false), Facebook’s trolls (is there ANY truth coming out of their mouths?), and bunch of leftist talking heads citing closed sources that this is Russia. Not to mention all of the “Russian collusion” with Trump which doesn’t have even a milligram of truth to it. Anytime the Russians are blamed, your first reaction should be the “gray zone” actor is actual the US left, supported by the Chinese (CCP).

    N Korea similarly carries out petty cybercrime (albeit at some scale), except these financially motivated crimes are carried about by the government as a revenue stream, and not by organized criminal groups within the country. They use cyber thug tactics to keep the lights on at Kim Jung Il’s mansion. And of course, they’re also a proxy for China.

    The Hadj groups will continue to be a wildfire threat. Sometimes a wildfire is overwhelming, sometimes you let it burn itself out, sometimes it flares up out of seemingly nothing. History doesn’t repeat itself, but it rhymes, and in this case the rhymes are as old as recorded human history.

    China is the real threat.

    They’re the ones stealing our intellectual property, buying off our politicians, including our current White House, funding/training all of the BLM, Inc. activists, engaging real proxy wars, and trying to steal our energy independence by pushing us down the path of green energy, which requires minerals that China has a nearly exclusive access to. They’ve taken our manufacturing jobs. They’ve successfully gotten our corporate boards to bow to woke-ism while engaging in billion dollar contracts with China, and successfully muzzled these same companies on the human rights violations of Uighars and Christians, as well as the anti-suicide nets on the upper floors at FoxConn manufacturing (who makes Apple’s components). They’re the ones engaging in internal propaganda for the masculinization of the males in their country while pushing the woke high heel military propaganda in the USA.

    The only “gray zone” actor we should really be concerned with is China.

    Fire the talking heads. Focus on the threat. Move forward.

    https://www.csis.org/programs/about-...board-trustees Man, their (CSIS) board of trustees is a who's who of know thy enemy... that is good stuff; who better to tell you what they are up to? thank you for sharing. You have everyone from Sam Nunn (D) to Paul Ryan (Rhino) represented. Not to mention Kissinger and the CEOs of Wells Fargo and Bechtel, that is an amazing gaggle of THE PROBLEM.

    The last couple vidoes are totally a sales pitch for them. The first few do a good job of framing things. Trying to find info on this subject in an easily digestable manner for most people is hard.

    A lot of these concepts are in the same vein as what is in the Unrestricted Warfare book I posted about a while back.
