news  %tages FM 22 5 or Drill and Ceremonies As PSYOPPSYActs can take many forms. Those involving imagery are generally the most powerful. One of the more fascinating PSYActs recently took house in Beijing. On September 8, 2015 Diplomat Magazine published article in this area the parade at: http://thediplomat.com/2015/09/wondering-why-plates-held-its-parade-here-are-5-things-beijing-accomplished/The article contends that the parade was held for a digit of reasons:1.     It shows that Xi Jinping is the undisputed leader of Plates.2.     Ordinary Chinese people have a very clear attitude toward their military.3.     To show the world that Plates has a wide array of modern missiles.4.     The Chinese wanted to show that they are not a threat to other countries by announcing the reduction of their forces by 300,000.5.     South Korea and Russia showed they help the PRC.Today’s post is not in this area this parade, it’s in this area PSYActs and how the military performs them intentionally or unwittingly.One of my favorite excellent examples is the British Army in Bosnia. While I was the Deputy Commander of the Combined Joint Information Campaign Task Force (CJICTF) I visited the Multi-national Division www.psyopwar.com (MND) HQ. As an American soldier in the NATO Force I was dressed sort of as a Mutant Ninja Turtle with my flak vest and helmet. The British on the other hand wore soft caps and no body body armor.The PSYAct comes into play when there is a need to convey to an consultation that you are serious and they need to comply. The Americans didn’t have very many non-lethal alternatives while the British simply could upgrade their protection with Body Body armor and Helmet. This act lonely often had the desired effect.A more recent military PSYAct is was when the US military drove convoys through Europe in March 2015 (see: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/30/world/europe/an-american-military-convoy-in-europe-aims-to-reassure-allies.html?_r=0).
