Watch for “Hybrid Attack”

Hybrid attack - military

What is a “hybrid attack?”  Why prepare? Eastern Europe, at this moment, is facing a new kind of warfare, slow-motion mass infiltration, violating border sanctity, leading with thousands of children, abusing asylum laws, effectively seeking to overrun a nation.

Where is it happening? Much is written about Russia’s efforts to insinuate troops into Ukraine. That history is complicated. Military threat real, troops on Ukraine’s border, but beware the foil.

Like our WWII feint at Calais to throw Hitler off, causing him to miss our movement on Normandy, the real “hybrid attack” may be elsewhere. Within the week, Belarus – supported by Russia’s Putin – has massed thousands of “refugees” on Poland’s border to flood the zone.

Pause for a geography refresher. Belarus – aligned with Putin – is the hub of a wheel, the center of action. To that nation’s east is Russia – with a long border. To the west is Poland. To the northwest is Lithuania, north Latvia, south Ukraine. Belarus is in the middle.  

Why does that matter? For a “hybrid attack” to flood the zone, Belarus is perfect. Using non-Polish “refugees” – and children, like terrorists do for human shields – Belarusian infiltrators could push over Poland’s border in huge numbers, claiming asylum by thousands, sowing chaos.

The goal would be disorientation, challenging NATO – using the European Union’s asylum laws against them. Or it could be a clever reverse, creating a distraction that allows Russia to move on to Ukraine, as NATO is preoccupied by an overrun Poland.

It could get worse, accelerating swiftly. Even as Belarus prepares for a “hybrid attack” on Poland, three other nations are at risk.  A “hybrid attack” could also be launched on Lithuania, Latvia, and – ironically – driving south from Belarus, not east from Russia, on Ukraine.

Remember, Russians are excellent chess players. While we have more to fear – magnitudes – from China, that does not mean Russia is blind to their moment, to weakness in NATO, to an unfocused, incoherent US President, to deepening American concerns over China.

If a perfect time existed to put NATO in fear – through members Poland, Lithuania, and Latvia – this is it. Belarus is integrated into the Russian military, interoperable. The EU is divided, dependent on Russia for energy. NATO is divided, the US internally divided, morally adrift.

Russia knows all this – as does China. One unasked question is – Could China and Russia (using Belarus) be cooperating to maximize a shot at long-sought territories, regional control, pressuring NATO, causing a weak US administration to spread thin, or worse – do nothing?

Certainly possible. We do not know, but the smart money says Russia recalls Nixon “playing the China card” against the Soviets, while China recalls post-Soviet US openings to Russia. They could now return the favor in tandem.

If Russia moves on Poland – via “hybrid attack,” using surrogate Belarus – NATO will be hard-pressed. If Russia triples the ante, using Belarus to push over the borders of Lithuania, Latvia, and Ukraine, NATO will be at a disadvantage. War would be a bad option, but absent deterrence, those NATO borders begin to look very vulnerable – like the old Maginot line.

Add an eager China, which would look at any move – including a direct one by Russia on Ukraine, a historically fraught relationship – as a chance to potentially move on Taiwan.

The international chess pieces are related, some whispering to each other. This is worth quickly focused on by Biden’s team. They need to get deep into diplomacy or will be deep in something else.

The kicker:  What does all this remind you of? Where else could a “hybrid attack” be launched already be underway?  Where else is there a long, vulnerable, challenged border? While Poland has shut theirs, what nation has not done that?

Yes, I think you are onto the game. Chess pieces in our backfield are vulnerable. If a “hybrid attack” – aimed at mass distraction – is possible in Europe against NATO, why not here? 

The US Southwest border is open. Our most hateful adversaries know it, know we are weak at home, not showing the resolve Poland, Ukraine, Lithuania, and Latvia are against Belarus. If they can do it there, anyone can do it here.

Beware the “hybrid attack,” as it would make current crossings look like a trickle. What is bad could get far worse unless we get serious. The time is now to pivot, deter and protect. We should follow Poland’s example and make clear – our border matters.

We hope you've enjoyed this article. While you're here, we have a small favor to ask...

Europe is on its own. Biden won’t back our allies should there be a move by Russia, he doesn’t know how. This will be a EU problem and NATO minus the US.

2022 promises to be an eventful year. Will we have to wait until the House returns to the Republican fold before decisive action is taken? Will NATO blink? How will the major nation of central Europe, Germany, fare in a post Merkel world?
Meanwhile Shih Jinping salivates over “liberating” Taiwan.
As Bette Davis famously said decades ago, “Fasten your seatbelts. It’s going to be a bumpy ride”.

The world becomes ever more dangerous with power the goal for evil regimes, and that includes both China and Russia. If they can engineer world domination they will do so. And this administration is NOT up to the task. Biden is a mentally diseased puppet and the weakest, most feckless president in my lifetime, and I remember Harry Truman. I truly fear for my grandkids’ futures.

Biden is allowing the enemy to come into our country .The enemy is coming into this country across the border and Biden is letting them do it . The enemy is going to destroy us in our on country.They are setting up places to set off bombs all over this country and Biden is so stupid that he has no idea what is going own. I don’t understand why the military or FBI can’t see this or maybe Biden is Russia and wants to kill all Americans?

So, how does this article transfer to the U.S.? Is this the same kind of tactic being played out towards an end of our Republic? What lies beneath? How about an article that digs deeper into the present administrations activities behind the scenes, from under the table and who in particular is involved.
Too many shadows, false signals and unreconciled issues that need a light shined on them. Where is the conspiracy and who are the conspirators….name some names….cite some dates….

Good post. Makes sense. Attack when and where your enemy is weakest. Have we ever had weaker leadership? It’s likely Mexico is in on it with China and Russia. What’s to stop China and Russia from coordinating their attacks against Taiwan and Ukraine? What exactly would we do? With a senile POTUS and a cabinet filled with communist sympathizers? Would we go to war? Pfft! No! Some saber rattling but that’s it. Beijing Biden and his cronies likely support China and Russia anyway and would do squat.

We don’t have a legitimate President or so-called Vice President. Dictator Beijing biden took a Oath to Uphold and Defend the U.S. Constitution and from the moment Dictator Beijing biden ILLEGALLY was in White House what does he do…KILLS OUR ENERGY INDEPENDENCE (COMMUNIST). Let’s MILLIONS of ILLEGAL ALIENS in who are TERRORIST, MURDERERS, RAPIST, CHILD MOLESTERS/MURDERERS, VIRUS INFECTED, UNEDUCATED, DISEASE INFESTED, NON-ENGLISH SPEAKING, NON-SKILLED, CRIMINALS IN and FLIES THEM WITH NO MASK or VACCINATED to ALL OVER USA in MIDDLE of NIGHT WITH NO RECORDS of WHERE THEY ARE. THIS DOESN’T INCLUDE the 10 MILLION THAT GOT IN UNDETECTED SINCE 1-20-21.
DICTATOR Beijing biden VIOLATES and ATTACKS the 2ND AMENDMENT and OTHER CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS VIOLATING the OATH he took being ILLEGALLY SWORN IN.
INFLATION, NO JOBS, NO BORDERS, ILLEGAL and UNCONSTITUTIONAL VACCINE MANDATES, ILLEGAL and UNCONSTITUTIONAL MASK MANDATES, BRAINWASHING and INDOCTRINATION of our CHILDREN and USING OUR CHILDREN AGAINST PARENTS just like HITLER DID.
DICTATOR Beijing biden SWEARS ALLEGIANCE to United Nations and NOT the UNITED STATES of AMERICA.
Push ONLY One-sided Bills in Congress and Senate.
DICTATOR Beijing biden has SIGNED MORE EXECUTIVE ORDERS than any other President in first year DELIBERATELY Bypassing Congress and Senate for their FASCIST AGENDA.
REMEMBER: DICTATOR Beijing biden said that ONLY DICTATORS SIGN EXECUTIVE ORDERS.
DICTATOR Beijing biden DOES HOLD RECORD FOR MOST ILLEGAL, UNCONSTITUTIONAL SIGNED EXECUTIVE ORDERS.
Don’t forget he SLEPT through the LIE of GLOBAL WARMING meeting they had in Europe with ALL of ATTENDEES FLYING In on PRIVATE JETS PUMPING OUT MAJOR POLLUTION that they WHINE about.
The list goes on and on. DICTATOR Beijing biden BLAMES EVERYBODY ELSE for HIS DISASTERS like the Economy, Afghanistan, 13 AMERICANS DIED and THOUSANDS STILL STRANDED.
But that’s okay as long as we keep our Borders Open letting in MILLIONS of ILLEGAL ALIENS INFECTED WITH ALL FORMS of CHINA VIRUS. GIVE $86 BILLION of U.S. MILITARY EQUIPMENT and GUNS of WAR to TERRORIST Including a FULLY OPERATIONAL AIRPORTS.
And let’s not FORGET that DICTATOR Beijing biden LOVES TERRORIST and CRIMINALS. Like removing FARC a TERRORIST Organization, NO PROSECUTION of ANTIFA and BLM TERRORIST WHO DESTROYED CITIES, POLICE STATIONS, FEDERAL BUILDINGS, MURDERED PEOPLE but were ALL WENT FREE WITH ALL CHARGES DROPPED.
STILL, CURRENTLY CRIME RUNS RAMPANT in Democrat RUN CITIES and STATES. But it’s EVERYBODY ELSES FAULT BUT THEIR OWN WHEN THEY CREATED THIS NIGHTMARE.
AND DICTATOR Beijing biden and COMMUNIST harris HAVE STILL NOT GONE TO SOUTHERN BORDER but they can go to Europe.

MUST HAVE CONVENTION OF STATES to SAVE OUR COUNTRY. AND THAT TIME IS NOW.
USA 1ST.

Wrong-way Biden is a gift from liberal voters, and a rigged election to our enemies, especially leaders of China, Russia, and Iran. They must be jumping for joy at their good luck. A dream come true, an idiot in the White House surrounded by his advisors, not one of them as bright as Biden. The blind leading the blind. A perfect storm of stupidity. It will surely be a miracle if the world survives three more years of Biden’s incompetence and idiocy.

Only the dead have seen the last of war. Many generations have imagined they evolved into something higher, only to find out otherwise in the bitterest way. We’ve had leftist leaders before, but only recently have they seemed to hate their own country enough to destroy it. Our commies despised reagan and accused him of wanting nuclear war, but our enemies feared him. We can only hope that today they fear an unpredictable and increasingly desperate administration enough to temper their actions.

RBC,

I hate to tell you this, but the U.S. has been under what you refer to as a hybrid attack, using imported illegal aliens, for decades. It started with Ted Kennedy’s immigration reform bill in the 1960s, that was designed specifically to change the demographics of the nation to one far more favorable towards Democrats and their policies. Under virtually every Democrat administration since then, the southern border has been used to import and disperse millions of illegal aliens into this country and to change a number of formerly red states (majority Republican) to solid blue states (majority Democrat) or purple states (formerly majority Republican but now equally spilt between the parties from a voting perspective). Under the current Biden administration, they are importing at least 2 million illegals into this country each year. When you add them to the already 40 million illegals living in the United States at the end of 2019, we’ll have an illegal alien population of over 48 million by the time the 2024 Presidential election rolls around. That is a larger population of illegals, than make up the legal citizenry of some countries around the world and a large percentage of them are drawing some form of welfare or subsidy from the American taxpayer. All of which plays into the long-term Democrat strategy that has been working perfectly.

Some examples of the successes of this multi-decade long hybrid attack model here in the United States are California, Oregon, Washington state, Arizona, Colorado and that is just on the west coast and the south western part of the United States. The Democrats have used this approach across the country with equally great success. Creating and expanding a dependency class that votes Democrat year after year after year as the Democrat leaders that run those states look the other way.

The leadership in Poland is quite aware of what Putin is trying to accomplish by “flooding the zone” with as many non-Polish as possible to undermine the long-term stability and continuity of Poland. Remember, Putin’s desire is to reconstruct the old Soviet Union and for him to take over some countries again, he has to weaken their ability to resist him.

I agree with you that we should immediately re-impose all the Trump era policies on the southern border, that were so successful in reducing illegal alien in-flows into this country. However, as long as the Biden administration occupies the WH, that simply isn’t going to happen. Everything currently going on at the southern border is exactly what the Biden administration wants to happen. To believe otherwise is to ignore the last 55 years of Democrat Party history and policy priorities.

What is real history of Southern border the last 20-years? Obama years had people waiting to enter properly & then Trump made this major issue & the WALL stopping caravans along with Mexico. Why did caravans just start with Trump? And why has Congress not passed or solidified immigration laws. What was big change at start of Trump term and then Biden term that triggered all of these people coming thru Mexico.

Do not hear much about Northern border & are people entering that way. I remember when Trump was campaigning he was at New England states & said he would stop the drugs coming in from North and so was that stopped or how big a problem with drug traffic?

“All that is necessary for evil to succeed is that good men do nothing.” Many, that were in a position to do “something” merely allowed the unquestionably (yes…unquestionably!) fraudulent results of the 2020 election to stand. They also stood by while election rules were changed due to the plandemic; some illegally. Evil is prevailing far, FAR more than it would be had that not been allowed to happen. Now the U.S., and thus the free world is paying dearly. In the case of the U.S., quite probably paying with its life.

LET’S GO BRANDON

PS Somewhat off subject-The “omicron” variant is a ruse, to regain some of the unconstitutionally usurped power that they’ve been losing. Let’s face it…nobody (excluding the sheeple that heed the msm) believes anything tony-baloney-fauxci says anymore. They are going to attempt to regain their fascist grip. Take it to the bank!

Dr. Fupoop should be tried by a tribunal in the Hague for crimes against Humanity with the money supplied to the CCP for biological research that created CCP-VIRUS (COVID 19) THAT HAS KILLED MORE THAN 9 MILLLION PEOPLE WORLD WIDE! I already know that China does not belong to any world order that can get them to turn over the ones responsible for research and development of the CCP-Virus. They show no concern about global disasters, and they willingly released it on the World for one purpose, to change the election in America !

Mexico’s new list of demands to reinstate MIGRANT PROTECTION PROTOCOLS (REMAIN IN MEXICO POLICIES), should be immediately addressed. Mexico has allowed these people to illegally inter their country and has aided in their travel through Mexico. It shouldn’t be the policy of the UNITED STATES to allow any of them to illegally enter our country. MEXICO YOU ALLOWED THEM INTO YOUR COUNTRY SO ITS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO DEAL WITH THEM WITHIN YOUR NATIONS BOUNDARIES OR TO RETURN THEM TO THEIR COUNTRY OF ORIGIN. NO FURTHER DISCUSSION.

I read the above article. this phrase is what I want to respond to. “The US Southwest border is open. Our most hateful adversaries know it, know we are weak at home, not showing the resolve Poland, Ukraine, Lithuania, and Latvia are against Belarus. If they can do it there, anyone can do it here.” That statement seems to imply that the fraud president and his handlers will do nothing to stop a “hybrid attack” and is probably correct.

What the article does NOT take into consideration is the number of privately held firearms owned by US citizens who would prefer not to lose their country to a hoard of the world’s poorest and least resourceful people on the planet. I am a Western woman and lived in the Western States most of my life with a few years wasted in Louisianna and the Seattle area. Louisianna wasn’t exactly tame either but in a different way.

I grew up with hunters, survivalists and straight up gun-toting crazy people who love their country. I have met people in militias, I have seen at least 1 anti-aircraft gun oiled and ready in a barn, I knew of a compound on the highway up to Flathead Lake with a cannon in their front yard and that was just the casual stuff out for show.

I live 140 miles North of Yuma AZ. I am thinking a “hybrid attack” that was not met with US Military or National Guard Troops with real bullets in their guns would be met by angry and betrayed armed to the teeth Texans, Arizonans and whomever else showed up determined to save their own country. Do you all remember that huge flood in Texas when the Cajun Navy showed up to save people? They came with their own boats, drove their own trucks and bought gas with their own money. Do you remember what happened after 9/11? Search and rescue teams, nurses, doctors, firefighters and everyone else showed up to help. I think that people from my small desert town would be patrolling the neighborhoods and barricading the highway if our Sherriff’s Dept was overwhelmed. the whole country is not Southern California, New York, Portland or Seattle. My little desert town is full of older Veterans. I see Vietnam Caps on old guys (my age) all the time and a lot of younger Vets who have also seen combat. You think they would not step up? You think that duck hunter who can shoot a flying duck out of the air is not going to step up? You think if thousands of refugees are pouring up the highway into my little town and into our neighborhoods there won’t be citizens sitting on the porch in the dark with guns loaded and a hose to put out fires?

The useless group running the country may put us in the position of needing to defend our homes and businesses. In Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis, they stood back and let the rabble burn their towns. At what point do we have to do what the government will not or cannot do? I am a 71 year old woman but I think I would defend my home if it came to that. Would you? What will it take, fellow Americans? I think I am the one crazy person left who prefers not to allow looting and burning of my neighborhood?

If the states bordering Mexico don’t stop the illegals then the land owners must. I am not against joining a private army to eliminate the aliens. A few will be sacraficed but the problem will end.

I have read all the comments and agree with most but what I can’t understand is WHY do we elect representatives that accept the status quo and do nothing. Please, someone explain. Trump was on our side, loves America but lost the election to a nitwit. I don’t believe he did but can we ever win another election and why don’t those elected officials we do elect (Republicans) do something? IAnything, I am really losing hope,

The time to pivot was almost 60 years ago, before we allowed KNOWN Marxist to take control of our Universities of higher learning. They produced the professors, who then gave us the teachers who taught the parents of the type of people who tearing our country apart. What is left for us is to DEFEND OUR LIBERTY TO THE END!!! If we won’t do that, then we didn’t deserve that liberty to begin with.
