I Stand Corrected - Comments on Last Week's Post

After some careful research with highly credible sources, I've decided to revise my position on the Israeli/Palestinian kinetic PSYACT post. Rather than any form of information engagement, the two factions are much more like heavy weight fighters whose only strategy is to keep punching no matter what.

Neither side seems willing or able to come up with a realistic desired end state. Consequently no amount of psychological influence whether through information or via PSYACTs is likely to have a positive effect.

Depends on what the desired effect is. The Arab Israeli Conflict is rich in Psychological Warfare. From the Lavon Affair to the al Dura effort.
