Guerrilla Warfare: Cause and Conflict

DIANE Publishing, 1981 - 83 sider
Presents the author's position that an overpopulated earth, combined with the failure of governments to meet the social needs of their people, is driving disillusioned and despairing populations rapidly toward active participation in, or support of, guerrilla organizations. Although the essay is oriented toward the year 2000 and beyond, the author notes that the "emotional forces which ignite conflicts" already exist in most of the underdeveloped nations and soon will jolt more advanced societies as well. Contains a brief discussion of the operations of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund, population projections and tables.

Side 8 - Therefore, when capable, feign incapacity; when active, inactivity. When near, make it appear that you are far away; when far away, that you are near. Offer the enemy a bait to lure him; feign disorder and strike him. When he concentrates, prepare against him; where he is strong, avoid him. Anger his general and confuse him.
