Disinformation & Asymmetrical Warfare Working Group
Clarence Martin, III
This working group studies warfare between belligerents whose disparate military capabilities and tactics differ widely. This often means standing, professional armies contending with insurgencies or resistance movements and militias whose status in international law is that of unlawful combatants.
Asymetric warfare generally occurs where the military capabilities of the belligerents are not simply unequal but so significantly different that they cannot mount the same types of attacks against each other.The best examples today are the 911 attacks and the wars in Afghanistan and Syria. It generally involves the use of unconventional weapons and tactics that are associated with guerrilla warfare and terrorist attacks.
