A Systems View of Information Warfare

ABSTRACT

This paper is a conceptual discussion in system theory of information warfare as an open system, and sets new demands on how to approach and manage such systems. By arguing for an open system approach, such as Intuitive Battle Dynamics, it appears to be possible to understand and also to handle and manage a complex problem, such as information warfare. This could lead to Commanders changing their way of using systems with both physical and psychological components in order to master the information warfare concept in clever ways.

The Terrorism/Mass Media Symbiosis

ABSTRACT

With the advancement of communications technologies the media has evolved in parallel, reaching wider audiences with rapidly decreasing times to air the latest breaking story. The modern mass media has become a primary source of information for the public; consequently they turn to the media when disaster strikes. Likewise, terrorism has evolved, aiming their messages at more global audiences, resulting in far more audacious and spectacular incidents to grab the attention of the media, which provide a means to spread their message and gain recognition. This paper investigates the relationship between terrorism and the media, and establishes a Terrorism/Mass Media Symbiosis.
