Asymmetric Propaganda Warfare & Network Warfare

Why is it that the military just can’t grasp that on the net you can’t just use a sledge hammer to make things go away? It seems they finally have gotten a taste of reality in the war against Da’esh with their cyber weaponry hitting their targets only for the Da’eshbags to re-constitute from backups and new domains bought cheaply. I for one have been saying that it is pointless to just DoS them offline or fuck with them in hopes they would go away for many a year, guess now they might get it after their failures.

Ya see kids, it is not about big cyber booms and these guys go away and unless you are using some super software that pops GPS coords into a Raptor’s telemetry and launch a hellfire, you are pretty much gonna be shit outta luck in making a big difference here. Now the prosecution of the war itself may be benefited by such tools (if they exist) but when you see things like the text from the NYT’s article you see that even the administration just fundamentally did not get it. The NSA is a SPY agency and that is their charter, so asking them to dismantle portable networks that are easily re-constituted with new off the shelf hardware and software bespeaks a fundamental lack of understanding about the technology.

So here’s my advice to all you cyber warriors; Use the technologies that SPIES use to gather intelligence and then pass that intel to the HUMINT folks. Hell, for that matter have a two way connection here and use the tech to watch them, interact with them, and then use the information to make kinetic retaliation possible. You know what made AQAP’s propaganda machine slow down? It was when we blew their propaganda team off the face of the earth. In essence kill them. End them. Use the technology to get at them and end them. Stop it with all this whiz bang idiocy thinking you can take them offline and have them not come back in a day or so with a backed up copy of their shitty jihadi boards.

Just one man’s opinion, but you don’t need a sledge hammer to put a thumb tack in the wall.

There are no quick fixes here.

Just sayin.
