How are cyber-attacks a strategy for mixed warfare?

US Secretary of State Anthony Blanc has said that the United States is seeking new international sanctions against Russia over its use of artificial intelligence.

His comments were a major threat to ransom, including the closure of the largest oil pipeline in the United States.

For his part, President Joe Biden warned US President Vladimir Putin by telephone that the United States would take action.

These ever-increasing cyber-attacks represent a new kind of war that can wreak havoc and even destroy a country’s economy. This is called a “hybrid war.”

It is a mixture of common and uncommon tactics used by a very powerful enemy to achieve the impossible political goals of a traditional war.

The problem is often the identification of criminals. The government responsible for its actions in a civil war often employs non-governmental actors, which allows it to deny responsibility.

But over the past two decades, a number of cyber-attacks targeting Western government institutions and businesses have become more sophisticated than the “only wolves” who carry the hallmarks of “supported” or “approved” actions. Enemy government.

Undoubtedly, many great powers, particularly Russia, as well as China and Iran, have at least mastered the art of rhetoric, gossip, and political propaganda to support their geopolitical goals.

The problem is that the growing powers in the West have adopted the same tactics. It really makes it difficult, sometimes impossible, to get to the bottom of what is really going on. And perhaps the most dangerous of all, is that the global climate is deteriorating and is becoming more and more serious – whether it is justified or not.

It presents a shocking model for future violent clashes with Russia, China, or both, in which many players will break the rules and risk – or worse, even embrace – bloodshed.

Proxy wars

These calculations and proxy wars have already killed hundreds of thousands of people in Syria, Yemen, Ukraine and, to a lesser extent, Libya and beyond.

Elsewhere, especially in the Western world, races were largely bloodless. But it is even more difficult to get down to what is really going on. In fact, many of those involved are clearly taking advantage of that dynamics and the resulting confusion.

Conspiracy theories

Widespread Machiavellian ambiguity poses a threat to democracies. It undoubtedly feeds on the conspiracies of the right-wing, Kremlin and other criminals, and creates a false sense of accounting worldwide.

In cultures without their own compassion, sovereign states such as Russia, China, and Iran, and especially their leaders, are brutally marginalized. All three have made it clear to the degree that they see the hand of the West in domestic disputes at home, and as Hong Kong’s frustration escalates, such concerns are exacerbated.

Honest, open diplomatic channels – between nuclear countries and domestic political parties – offer the only hope for the control of such species.

Obviously, there is no shortage of forces that believe that such chaos can benefit them. In a short time, they may be right. But in the long run, they may realize that they, like all of us, will suffer the consequences.
