It must be ISIS day today. Even though I just posted the Twofer entry, I couldn’t resist passing by the side of this article from the Economist. In my earlier posting I noted that there were a digit of forces at play:1. “The use of offensive cyber weapons hostile to a non-traditional enemy.2. The employment of cyber shape by the side of with traditional Military Information Help Operations (MISO).3. The execution of a coordinated set of operations involving both.4. Booster of other resources be they COTS, contract, mercenary or volunteers.”According to a July 14th article from the Economist “Fighting Islamic State with laughter and a listening ear “ (see: http://www.economist.com/blogs/prospero/2016/07/banter-terrorists, which is also the photo source) The administrator of the effort, who wished to remain anonymous for obvious reasons claimed that the effort is run by “claims that it is run by a assemble of volunteer activist lawyers, journalists and graphic designers from across the Arab world (including some in IS-held territories).”, or #4 on my list above.The article www.psyopwar.com states: “The Bighdaddy show, a collection of small videos satirising IS, is named after Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, IS’s leader.”According to the article it’s a regional effort on Social Media. Of course, there are no Nielsen ratings for Social Media. I’m not an Arabic speaker, so I can’t comment on whether or not nuances of the language are appropriate, but I am of the opinion that these kinds of hard work are likely to be more effective than those that are produced beyond the area.
