Information-Age War

Recently President Obama decided to take military action in Libya. We are already involved in military action in Iraq (still) and Afghanistan. We are fighting as if this was still the 20th century. The problem is that we are now in the information age and we ought to be conducting our wars accordingly.

Missiles, bombs, guns, and soldiers aren’t going to work in the Middle-East. We have been in Iraq for a decade and not much has changed over there. The speech Obama gave in Egypt awhile back did more to advance freedom and democracy in the region than all the soldiers and military operations in the last decade. Twitter and Facebook have started revolutions.

These nations are mostly ruled by religion and so the way we should fight against them is with information, education, and getting people to think critically. Instead of sending in the military, we should be sending in information and education. While we should be willing to send troops to help out those who are revolting, we also need to help educate them about science and reality.

That’s the problem with Afghanistan. We took over the country and we control the cities most of the time. But the fact is that the Taliban are still running the show because they aren’t an army, they are an idea. More specifically, they are an extreme religious idea and you can’t kill ideas (even bad ones) with guns. What we should have done there is to start educating the people of Afghanistan about critical thinking so that they can see for themselves that the ideas of the Taliban are ridiculous. Then they will not stand for the Taliban and will start to revolt. Then we could support such a revolution with troops. But troops alone will not and has not worked.

    The information age is why these revolutions happened in the first place. People had the internet and could organize demonstrations. What happened in Libya is that the dictator started killing it’s people for doing that and thus turned into a huge battle. Gadhafi (however you spell his name) hired extremely broke ass people from Mali and other sub-Sahara nations where they make less than a $1 a day as mercenaries. So you have the Libyan people versus mercenaries from other nations.

    So the western nations have stepped in to knock out Gadhafi’s airforce and such so the rebels can topple him. I am 100% behind action in Libya. Especially considering this is mostly going to be a air/bombing campaign that’ll last just a short period of time. No expensive decade long occupation costs here.

    I have no idea what kind of governments are going to replace the ones that got toppled in recent months. That has yet to be seen. I’m hoping the revolution momentum keeps us so all these nations with dictators get overthrown eventually. And I think someday in the US, an uprising might need to happen to fight against the rich killing the middle class.

    The internet is doing a good job though. All these atheists on youtube and the internet are really showing our presence and I think will topple the odds into our favor in the future.
