"The Evolution of Strangers and Foreigners"

🧵 Today's SFI Seminar by @DoctorBugs (@smithsonian)

First, a loop back to his LAST (2020) SFI Seminar on 3D structure of living systems from biofilms to rainforest canopies:


And his #ComplexityPodcast episode on ideas from that talk and this one:
complexity.simplecast.com/episodes/52-Z7…
"People often think of societies as cooperative, but some societies are NOT very cooperative. I prefer to put the focus on them as groups."

"Societies are just one aspect of belonging. There are groups *within* societies & that's what psychologists mostly focus on."

True, but there is a fine line between friendly advice and #Information #Warfare. My friends advise me privately and politely, not criticise me on social media, or give me advice on TV interviews! Those who did the latter are no longer my friends 🤡.
#PIP says: “We 😍🥰😘🐕🐩🦮”
3/pip #PIP: “The concept of “Friendship” in IR has been the bane of Indian foreign policy; Indians get emotionally committed to it, while great powers use it as an instrument of moral/intellectual coercion!” Asymmetric tests of “logical consistency” are another tool of coercion

.#Thread @indiannavy Chief Adm R Harikumar at @OfficialCLAWSIN webinar outlines 3 factors influencing the contours of #warfare - contemporary geopolitical climate specifically return of #GreatPower Competition, technology and evolution of #cyber as a vital domain for warfare
…Great Power Competition. Underscored by a multipolar world order with overlapping spheres of influence, this comp. is leading to jostling between nations on day-to-day basis, across regions and domains. …if unchecked or unregulated is likely to lead to conflict: Navy Chief
We are all aware that at the operational and tactical level, this competition is already manifesting in the form of greyzone warfare, hybrid warfare, salami slicing, etc: @indiannavy Chief Adm Harikumar on Great Power competition #IndoPacific #IOR

Thread @IAF_MCC Chief at @OfficialCLAWSIN webinar: In past rise n fall of nations was dictated by size & prowess of fielded forces. However, conflicts in last few decades clearly established w/o doubt preeminence of air power as instrumnt of choice for almost all op contingencies
Knowing that budget will always remain a constraint, prioritization of procurement at national level for key combat elements and enablers becomes very critical. We need training and equipment not to fight the last war but to fight n win tomorrow's wars: ACM VR Chaudhari #AirPower
In future, we could be attacked on all fronts, starting from economic strangulation to diplomatic isolation and military standoffs to information blackout in the form of distributed denial of services: @IAF_MCC Chief ACM Chaudhari #AirPower #IndoPacific #IOR

Dev in #Afghanistan have again brought to focus use of proxies & nonstate actors to decisive effects. They thrive on local conditions, innovatively exploit low cost options to devastating impact n create conditions that limit full use of sophisticated cpblt avl to the state: COAS
The concept of victory itself has changed as enduring success, especially against non-state actors has remained elusive for most: @adgpi Chief Gen Naravane speaking at @OfficialCLAWSIN seminar

Now Out in Paperback! “#China Goes to #Sea: #Maritime Transformation in Comparative Historical Perspective”

amazon.com/China-Goes-Sea…

@NavalWarCollege @ChinaMaritime is proud to publish this new version w/ @NavalInstitute @USNIBooks!

Come for the #maps, stay for the #history...
Honored to have #JonathanSpence’s endorsement:

“The maritime #history of #China has long been a neglected field..China Goes to Sea bring[s] that knowledge-gap to an end..will be an indispensable companion to those readers seeking to understand where China’s navy may be heading.”
As European #naval powers & even the @USNavy struggle with ship numbers, #China has gone to #sea.

Represents the reversal of a great historical trend that began 600 years ago, when China withdrew from the seas & European naval expansion spread Western influence around the globe.

THREAD: Basil II’s Campaigns in Bulgaria (Part One)
#Byzantine #medieval #Bulgaria #varangian #warfare Image
Before we can talk about Basil’s conquest of Bulgaria, we need to provide some context and examine the Basileus first campaign and the failures that would shape his reign.
Basil’s dream had always been to succeed where no Basileus had before and conquer Bulgaria, but Basil’s early reign was marred by the rebellion of Bardas Skleros in Anatolia from 976-979. Tsar Samuel of Bulgaria took advantage of this unrest. Image

narco.news/5th-generation…

5GW is the battle of perceptions and information. In 5GW, violence is so discreetly dispersed that the victim is not even aware that it is a victim of war and the victim is not aware that it is losing the war.
The secrecy of this #warfare makes it the most dangerous warfare generation of all time. This warfare hides in the background, and “the most successful [#fifth generation] wars are wars that are never identified.”
5GW is also a cultural and moral war, which distorts the perception of the masses to give a manipulated view of the world and politics. By contrast, 4GW has mainly used asymmetric means, such as the use of nonstate actors. Lind’s portrayal of 4GW in moral and cultural territory

#US #TriService #MARITIME #STRATEGY!

Focus on #China & #Russia = 2 most significant geopol threats to global peace & prosperity—

Clear stakes:

"China has implemented a strategy & revisionist approach that aims at the heart of the US’ #maritime power."

media.defense.gov/2020/Dec/17/20…
"... our three #Sea Services have watched with alarm the growing #naval #power of the People’s Republic of #China & the increasingly aggressive behavior of the Russian Federation.

Our globally deployed naval forces interact w/ #Chinese & #Russian #warships & #aircraft daily."
"We witness firsthand their increasing sophistication and growing aggressiveness. ... The People’s Republic of #China represents the most pressing, long-term strategic threat."

The game is afoot, and much is at stake.

But by no means is the game over for @USNavy, in the #SouthChinaSea or anywhere else.

After #COAS #Bajwa again talking about #5GW and the threat #Pakistan faces, the #PTI government has still been unable to restrict the access or approach of any of these groups.

#Warfare, especially in today’s connected, camera friendly world, is much easier to wage.
Nations can steal elections with the right strategy. They can change narratives with hostile actions. They can create hate and distrust.

We have all of these happening in today’s #Pakistan.

And the govt is sleeping...
From #PTM/#TTP to baseless rumors mongering, #Pakistan has become a battleground that is being lost due to no one bothering to understand the problem and its solutions.

That’s the distrust they showed in us. No one trusts the other when it comes to defining the problem.

The best ancient slingers were known to come from the Balearic Islands, where parents would not allow their young sons to eat unless they could hit the dish of food from afar with a slingshot. The very name of the islands may derive from the Greek "ballein", meaning "to throw".
In the opening minutes of the disastrous Battle of Cannae, the consul Lucius Aemilius Paullus was hit in the head and killed by a shot from a Balearic slinger. Recent tests showed that a 50-gram sling-bullet hurled by a trained slinger has similar stopping power to a .44 Magnum!
This wonderful artwork shows Carthaginians recruiting Balearic slingers for the Second Punic War (218-201 BC). #ancient #warfare #weaponry

#finarmyseminar the Finnish Army is streaming an online seminar on how it sees the future of warfare and its priorities. maavoimat.fi/maavoimasemina… Topics covered so far include the utility of naval assets in land warfare.
It plans to fit future ships with Global Eye UAVs that will provide 20 minute's extra warning of incoming low-flying aircraft over ground based radars. The ships will also include two saunas.
A mesh network is considered essential for future communications; self-organised networks that adapt to the situation and route messages in the best way. The network would consist of hi/lo power nodes, and could reconfigure is any were destroyed.

The @FBI published a wanted poster and an indictment of 4 “Chinese military-backed hackers” for their alleged roles in the 2017 #Cyberattack against credit company @Equifax.

Article by @JoshJPhilipp | (Thread👇) theepochtimes.com/hackers-indict…
The @FBI described the breach as “the largest known theft of personally identifiable information ever carried out by state-sponsored actors.”

Yet, despite the rare exposé of Chinese soldiers, little has been said about the #Hacker unit they were allegedly part of.
The case that most closely resembles this is the May 19, 2014, indictment of 5 Chinese #Military hackers for multiple alleged #Cybercrime acts committed between 2006 and 2014.

They were identified as being part of the #Chinese military, the People’s Liberation Army.
