UNCONVENTIONAL WARFARE 101
There’s an entire swath of counties in rural North Carolina where nearly every citizen inhabitant is either a guerrilla or part of a tyrannical authoritarian dictatorship. They have been at war since 1974. Since 1974; the inhabitants of these counties have lived in a state of political instability. This area is known as The People’s Republic of Pineland. Citizens of the Pineland resistance have formed an underground in which clandestine acts are planned and executed in order to undermine, discredit, overwhelm and in some cases even overtake government resources and faculties.
They are assisted by the men of the US Army Special Forces A.K.A. The Green Berets. The Army’s elite unconventional warfare experts who specialize in low intensity conflict. These men infiltrate, establish contact with the insurgents, train them, assist and advise them in the execution of acts of espionage, subversion, sabotage and direct action. The ultimate-goal is to overthrow the standing tyrannical government, establish a new government and ensure that it is maintained.
ENTER THE GREEN BERETS
The Nazi threat of World War Two and their vast expansion across the globe gave way to a new kind of threat. This was a literal existential threat against liberty all over the world. The Axis forces had operational momentum and going toe to toe with an enemy so powerful was not the best strategic decision. The United States was just coming of age and their answer to this threat included a vast spectrum of operations which included missions of overt and covert nature.
The Office of Strategic Services; also known as the (OSS) were the predecessors of both the CIA and the Green Berets. They were trained experts in espionage, sabotage, subterfuge and direct action. They were birthed under Major General William “Wild Bill” Donovan; behind enemy lines in Burma during World War II on April 14th 1942. The men of OSS Detachment 101 proved to be a great success in Burma working with the local populace, running guerrilla operations of sabotage, subterfuge, psychological operations and direct action.
Operation Jedburgh was also a great success; where members of the OSS, British special operations and the French Bureau of Central Intelligence worked together to run clandestine operations in occupied France. Once more, psychological operations, espionage, subversion, sabotage and direct-action operations proved to be pivotal in the liberation of France. The guerrilla warfare operations and tactics had been a great success at weakening the enemy from the inside.
The First Special Service Force was stood up on 9 July 1942. They were a multi-national force of elite operators from the US and Canadian militaries. Their sole purpose was to operate in the harsh winter conditions of Norway, behind enemy lines, while conducting acts of reconnaissance, sabotage and direct action. They were trained to infiltrate by land, sea or air. This group was highly successful and were known as the Devil’s Brigade.

The US Army’s 6th Special Reconnaissance Unit is best known for liberating Japanese held Prisoners of War at Camp Cabanatuan in the Philippines in January 1945. Organized on Fergusson Island New Guinea, these elite troopers were trained to be raiders and conduct deep reconnaissance behind enemy lines. They were birthed after Commanding General Walter Krueger had continually received bad intelligence reporting from sources outside the 6th Army. Their primary job was to act as a Corps asset by providing accurate and timely intelligence from deep within enemy lines, as well as to execute raids upon high value targets and targets of opportunity. After some time operating their mission evolved into also organizing large scale guerrilla operations, capturing high level Japanese officers and working hand in hand with the Army’s 6th Ranger Battalion.
During the Korean War, the concept of guerrilla warfare was not overlooked. The Korean Partisans also known as United Nations Partisan Infantry Korea, operated behind the enemy lines to gather intelligence, conduct raids and sabotage, rescue POWs, recruit and lead guerrilla armies and create confusion in the enemy’s rear. These elite groups also garnered the nickname “Donkey Squads” due to the effective use of donkeys and burros during operations. Some statistics on these units taken from Wikipedia:
“In the end, these partisan forces conducted 4,445 actions in North Korea that led to the capture of 950 prisoners, 5,000 weapons, 2,700 destroyed vehicles, 80 bridges demolished, 69,000 casualties (dead and wounded), 3,189 guerrilla deaths, and only four American advisers were KIA. Furthermore, according to the 5th Air Force, of the 93 pilots who had been shot down and evaded capture between July 1950 and January 1952, guerrilla fighters rescued 29”
June, 19th 1952; the 10th Special Forces Group was formed at Fort Bragg North Carolina under Colonel Aaron Bank. Bank was one of the original Jedburgh team members who assisted the OSS in the liberation of France. The world was in the beginnings of what became known as the “Cold War” and the looming threat communism was everywhere. The Soviet Union was expanding their tentacles across the globe and like a cancer communism was spreading.
The United States had emerged from World War Two as the world’s most prominent power and the shield of liberty worldwide. It is for this very reason the US had to hone a weapon in which to defend liberty and human rights from the very real threat of authoritarian communism. The Special Forces gained the “Green Beret” moniker from the headgear that they wear while in garrison. It stems as a symbol from the original Jedburgh operations during World War II. Members of the Jedburgh teams would adopt the same headgear as their French and British counterparts and it so happens that the Beret was a common headgear.
Many members of the Special Forces were also members of the former OSS and wanted to adopt the beret as a headgear that would set them apart from the rest of the Army. The Green Beret was unofficially adopted in 1954. In 1956 General Paul D Adams prohibited the Special Forces Soldiers from wearing it, like so many other conventional military minded people he had a distaste for the specialized unit displaying distinction. However, in true Special Forces fashion, the soldiers continued to wear their green berets surreptitiously in defiance.
This action was reversed on 25 September 1961 by Department of the Army which designated the green beret as the exclusive headdress of the Army Special Forces. Quote from a Wikipedia article on The Green Berets”
“In 1961, President John F. Kennedy authorized them for use exclusively by the U.S. Special Forces. Preparing for a 12 October visit to the Special Warfare Center at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, the president sent word to the center’s commander, Colonel William P. Yarborough, for all Special Forces soldiers to wear green berets as part of the event. The president felt that since they had a special mission, Special Forces should have something to set them apart from the rest. In 1962, he called the green beret “a symbol of excellence, a badge of courage, a mark of distinction in the fight for freedom”
President Kennedy saw the importance of having a unit specialized in Unconventional Warfare. The Green Berets were stood up as the answer to the growing cancer of communism. This elite unit was developed with the sole purpose of being capable to execute operations of all of its predecessors, OSS Detachment 101, Jedburgh teams, The First Special Service Forces, The 6th Special Reconnaissance and the Korean Partisans.
This is a list of Special Forces Missions:
- Unconventional warfare (the original and most important mission of Special Forces)
- Foreign internal defense
- Special reconnaissance
- Direct action
- Combat search and rescue (CSAR)
- Hostage rescue
- Humanitarian assistance
- Humanitarian demining
- Information operations
- Psychological operations
- Security assistance
The People’s Republic of Pineland isn’t a real place. Its citizens aren’t really guerrillas and there isn’t really an insurgency there. It’s the fictional name given to a series of 15 counties in rural North Carolina in order to facilitate the military’s biggest and longest running unconventional warfare exercise known as “Robin Sage”. Robin Sage is the culminating exercise in a very long training pipeline for US Army Special Forces soldiers. Nearly every household, business, law enforcement professional and citizen is involved as either a facilitator or a role player in this exercise. Many are unwitting participants; others are in on the game.
This exercise takes the Special Forces candidate from A to Z in the process of researching, planning, building, developing and maintaining a guerrilla insurgency. Special Forces soldiers also learn how to establish a new government and aid in restoring order after the fighting is done. This includes humanitarian aid and civil affairs operations. The trainees are given limited resources and must think “outside the box” in almost every single scenario. Success is not guaranteed, and each team reaps what it sows based on their actions and choices. The key phrase to understand in this exercise is “second and third hand effects”.
But what is “Unconventional Warfare”? It seems that it is a very common buzzword, in the media, online and in politics. It is important that before one can understand the “Unconventional” they should first know what is to be considered “Conventional”.
Conventional/ Traditional Warfare Defined:
“Conventional warfare is a form of warfare conducted by using conventional military weapons and battlefield tactics between two or more states in open confrontation. The forces on each side are well-defined, and fight using weapons that primarily target the opposing army. It is normally fought using conventional weapons, and not with chemical, biological, or nuclear weapons. The general purpose of conventional warfare is to weaken or destroy the opponent’s military force, thereby negating its ability to engage in conventional warfare. In forcing capitulation, however, one or both sides may eventually resort to unconventional warfare tactics.” – Definitions.net
- “1. The waging of war in a manner which does not use nuclear, biological, or chemical weapons. 2.The waging of war in set military battles, as opposed to waging guerrilla warfare or fighting insurgencies.” – Your Dictionary.com / Wiktionary.com
- “Traditional warfare is characterized as “a violent struggle for domination between nation-states or coalitions and alliances of nation-states.” This confrontation typically involves force-on-force military operations in which adversaries employ a variety of conventional military capabilities against each other in the air, land, maritime, space, and cyberspace domains. The objective may be to convince or coerce key military or political decision makers, defeat an adversary’s armed forces, destroy an adversary’s war-making capacity, or seize or retain territory in order to force a change in an adversary’s government or policies.” – Curtis E. Lamay Center for Doctrine and Development [27 February, 2015]
- “A form of warfare between states that employs direct military confrontation to defeat an adversary’s armed forces, destroy an adversary’s war-making capacity, or seize or retain territory in order to force a change in an adversary’s government or policies. The focus of conventional military operations is normally an adversary’s armed forces with the objective of influencing the adversary’s government. It generally assumes that the indigenous populations within the operational area are nonbelligerents and will accept whatever political outcome the belligerent governments impose, arbitrate, or negotiate. A fundamental military objective in conventional military operations is to minimize civilian interference in those operations.” – The Irregular Warfare Joint Operating Concept (IW JOC), Version 1.0, dated 11 September 2007
Conventional Warfare is essentially an open confrontation between two or more opposing forces that implement standard military weaponry against one another. Imagine the game of “Rock’em, Sock’em Robots”. That would infer that when fighting in a conventional war its sort of a “Fair” fight. You know who the enemy is and you’re engaging in the rules established under the “Law of Land Warfare” and Geneva conventions. Unconventional Warfare is more like a game of dungeons and dragons. It has many more possible outcomes in which to plan for and negotiate. There are second and third hand effects from every decision made. It operates on a broad spectrum and resolution typically takes time.
Unconventional Warfare Defined:
“Irregular warfare is defined as “a violent struggle among state and non-state actors for legitimacy and influence over the relevant populations.” IW favors indirect and asymmetric approaches, though it may employ the full range of military and other capabilities to erode an adversary’s power, influence, and will.” – Curtis E. Lamay Center for Doctrine and Development [27 February, 2015]
“Unconventional Warfare consists of activities conducted to enable a resistance movement or insurgency to coerce, disrupt or overthrow an occupying power or government by operating through or with an underground, auxiliary or guerrilla force in a denied area” – Wikipedia.org [Unconventional Warfare United States Doctrine]
“The current definition of UW is as follows:
Operations conducted by, with, or through irregular forces in support of a resistance movement, an insurgency, or conventional military operations.” – FM 3-05.201, (S/NF) Special Forces Unconventional Warfare (U) 28 September 2007
Although the methods and specific tasks required to conduct unconventional warfare are not clearly defined in any of the definitions for the term, there are some things that are clearly defined. Unconventional warfare requires that operations are conducted by, with or through irregular forces. This means that conventional military personnel will not conduct these operations. These operational personnel can include members of special operations units, intelligence operatives and the local populous. The definitions are also clear in that these operations are conducted in support of a resistance movement, an insurgency or conventional military operations.

RESISTANCES AND INSURGENCIES
This is not meant to be an all inclusive “How to” or instructional on Unconventional Warfare. However; I am writing this to familiarize the reader with how Irregular Warfare is conducted. There are essentially two main reasons in which this writer has chosen to publish such an article. The first would be to familiarize the reader with the concept and processes. This includes laying out the template for which these methods could be conducted. A generalization of sorts. The second reason is to establish a familiarization, so that the reader can then recognize the elements of this sort of low intensity conflict. In this manner they may be able to determine when these methods and techniques are being used against them, by whom, which groups, expose them, exploit them and aid in the eradication of such groups.
The elements of a resistance often include dissatisfaction with the government. This stems from the people’s or a group of people’s perceptions that the government is not willing to fulfill or is no longer fulfilling their legitimate needs. This causes the lack of faith in such a government and the loss of legitimacy. This could eventually lead to loss in confidence in the government’s willingness or ability to provide security or further the development of the nation.
There are violent and non violent resistances. Non violent or passive resistance includes, ostracism of the government, tax evasion, boycotts, protests, strikes and any other sort of civil disobedience. Violent resistance includes sabotage, subversion and guerrilla warfare. Most resistances begin as non-violent resistance. It is not uncommon for a resistance to turn violent when provoked by subversive cadre. This is generally the case when a subversive resistance leader can convince resistance member that there is a cause worthy and achievable enough to gain if violence is used.
Resistance movements generally begin with loose organization. However, when resistance members perceive that they are being oppressed enough, they tend to weave tighter, more congruent organizations. The heart of any resistance is the will of the people resisting. It is they who bare the brunt of the established authority’s retaliatory measures.
A resistance is ANY organized effort by some portion of the populous to oppose or overthrow the established government or to cause a withdrawal of an occupying force. When countering a resistance, one must remember that any armed resistance in an effort to maintain stability or keep the peace is generally perceived as “ALL OUT WAR” by the resistance.

An Insurgency is a protected socio-political struggle in which the resistance uses violence such as subversion, sabotage and direct action to achieve its aim. It’s design is to destabilize and weaken governmental legitimacy and control. Every insurgency has its own characteristics based on their strategic objectives. Insurgencies generally seek to overthrow the established order or governmental authority and reallocate it with their own.
The structure of a resistance or insurgency is based on a pyramid. The leadership at the top allocates specially trained personnel to develop the support structure. This resistance cadre organizes and develops the support structure. The support infrastructure supports the guerrillas. This is comprised of citizens in cities, towns, villages and rural areas. The infrastructure infiltrates military, police, administrative areas of government, labor groups and students.
Resistances and Insurgencies operate in cells and often times communicate with one another using tradecraft and other covert means. They operate independently, but in unison with one another. They will often band together to achieve their goals. Insurgencies are often comprised of a coalition of forces and groups that are unified by their common hostility of another group, occupying force or government.
PHASES OF INSURGENCIES
It is important to remember that not all insurgencies develop through every single phase. However, many insurgencies pass through what is known as common phase development. There are 3 phases of development in most successful insurgencies.
PHASE I – Latent/ Incipient Insurgency; This is the phase where the leadership transitions to an effective clandestine organization. They use a variety of subversive methods and techniques to psychologically prepare the populous to resist. Propaganda, demonstrations, boycotts, and sabotage are all used to garner attention and support for their cause. During this phase, leadership conducts recruiting and trains their cadres.
This is also the time when the organization attempts to infiltrate key government organizations and civilian groups. Intelligence, operational and support networks are established. Cooperative relationships are made between political action, youth and labor groups; such as trade unions and other front groups. This is the phase where they try to develop popular support for later political and military activities.
Financial infrastructure is developed in the latent / incipient stage. Leadership, cadre and organizers begin soliciting financial and monetary support. Sources for external support are also developed at this time. The first phase of the insurgency is the most difficult and import for the resistance to accomplish.
PHASE II – Guerrilla Warfare; In a rural based insurgency, guerrillas are generally based in a secure base area in insurgent controlled parts of the country. In an urban based insurgency, the guerrilla acts clandestinely using cellular organizations. Subversive activities from radio broadcasts, newspapers, pamphlets, leaflets, graffiti and other means that openly challenge control and legitimacy of the established government authority. The recruitment effort expands during this phase as the populous or sections of the populous continue to lose faith in their government.
PHASE III – Mobile Warfare/ War of Movement; This is the last phase of an insurgency where the movement transitions from Guerrilla Warfare to a conventional style of fighting. This phase; if successful is the implement to collapse the established form of government. This phase takes the characteristics of civil war. The insurgency begins to actively control certain parts of the country and they achieve a legal belligerent status. At this point in the insurgency, the movement is legitimized and becomes responsible for the administration and protection of their occupied and controlled areas.
UNSTERSTANDING OPERATIONAL PATTERNS
There are three basic operational patterns for insurgencies. The three most common operational patterns are classified as, Foco, Mass Oriented and Traditional. These patterns emerge based on the operational environment which include socio-economic and geographical conditions.
FOCO INSURGENCIES – The Spanish term for “focus”, the Foco insurgency is a single armed cell emerging from hidden strongholds in an environment of disintegrating legitimacy. Since the Foco insurgency strength is based on the radius of the main cell timing is of the essence. For a Foco insurgency to be successful, it must emerge during a time of simultaneous governmental collapse. An historical example of a successful Foco insurgency is the resistance led by Fidel Castro in Cuba.
MASS ORIENTED INSURGENCIES – The Communist Insurgency in China, led by Mao Zedong, the Viet Cong Insurgency and Sendero Luminoso (Shining Path) of Peru are all historical examples of Mass Oriented Insurgencies. The aim of these types of insurgencies is to incentivize and motivate a massive movement of armed political legitimacy outside of the established government. These insurgents slowly and patiently build and develop a large armed force of regular and guerrilla militants. A progressively increasing campaign of violence is planned to stamp out government and its institutions from the outside.
Military and political leaderships are separate and distinct within the movement. Eventually the insurgency creates a parallel government and then declares itself the de-facto establishment within the country. They develop to the point at which they are strong enough to challenge the established government directly. Their actions are designed to make the average citizen question the relevance of the established power.
TRADITIONAL INSURGENCY – This type of insurgency typically grows from a specific grievance or set of grievances. It begins with limited aims and stems from tribal, racial, religious, linguistic or other identifiable groups. The insurgents perceive that they have been denied interests, rights or privileges of their groups and seek to right the wrong. Generally, the insurgency stakes its claim on social injustices and seeks to achieve a platform for social justice. They seek withdrawal from the establishment and autonomy. They rarely seek to overthrow the government or to control society and are instead mostly concerned about their particular group. The Mujahedeen in Afghanistan (prior to Soviet withdrawal), Ibo revolt in Nigeria, Tamil Separatists in Sri Lanka and the Oka Crisis in Canada (1990) are all examples of a traditional insurgency.
If you’ve read this far in the article, chances are that you’ve probably been following some of my other published work via my books, online or perhaps follow me on social media. You’ve also probably noticed this writer’s propensity towards hostility against socialism and communism. In fact, one of the entire purposes of this article is to educate the reader on the dynamic of Unconventional Warfare and the patterns of insurgencies. On top of that, another reason for writing this is to educate the reader to see the current insurgency that is being developed as you read these very words.
Not only is one of the aims to reveal to the reader the characteristics and traits of insurgencies and recognize them; but also, to counter them and combat them. One such insurgency that is VERY REAL and is VERY MUCH a threat to our nation’s stability is the COMMUNIST, “ANTI-FASCIST” movement. Known commonly as ANTIFA, it is not an organization; but an ideology. ANTIFA is a resistance movement holding social justice grievances against the establishment. Outwardly projecting a campaign against fascism, yet inwardly it is promoting a violent overthrow of the establishment and its supporters.
The claim that they are the “Robin Hood” of their day; protecting the rights of black and hispanic minorities from a “RACIST” establishment run by privileged “WHITE SUPREMICIST ELITES”. They call for freedom of speech by silencing “HATE SPEECH” which is defined as ANY SPEECH, that is counter to their objective of establishing a “GLOBAL CLASSLESS SOCIETY”. Rallying to the claim that the current President of the United States is “ILLEGITIMATE”, that the 2016 election was sabotaged and that the current establishment is actively denying the rights and legitimate needs of a portion of society. They also have the perception that they are specifically being oppressed because of the repercussions for their violent actions at demonstrations and rallies.
The beauty of the ANTIFA is that it is NOT an organization but is an ideology that focuses it’s affiliation not on a sworn oath to ANTIFA, but its cause. The cause is simple anyone with ideas contrary to the resistance is an enemy and therefore can be classified as a NAZI, a racist and a White Supremacist. In addition to this criteria, anyone who supports the President of the United States, the Constitution of Independence, Bill of Rights and Traditional American values is classified as a dangerous agent of hate who must be attacked or worse.

A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE
ANTIFA in the United States can trace it’s emergence into the mainstream going back to the “Occupy” movement of 2008 – 2010. This was primarily a bunch of over privileged white kids and anarchists who wanted to collapse the commerce system within the United States and drive the country towards being a member state of a global classless society. The “Occupiers” sort of morphed into ANTIFA. Many of the players are the same in fact. ANTIFA bases it’s mission statement on the “Antifaschistische Aktion” groups that started in Germany in the 1920’s and 30’s.
Although the internet has been altered to convince you that the NAZIs were actually a rightwing group, they were a National Socialist group practicing what would be considered by ANY OTHER society in time but present to be leftwing. However, this nationalist form of socialism inspired by Benito Mussolini’s Fascist socialist government in Italy was authoritarian in its tyranny. It was not the form of Marxist collectivism that many sought to achieve. The Communists of Eastern Germany sought to bring about a more Bolshevist form of socialism to Germany and thus the birth of Antifaschistische Aktion.
“With the Antifaschistische Aktion, the KPD not only wanted to create a cross-party collection movement dominated by KPD, but they also aimed specifically at the Reichstag election on 31 July 1932. The election campaign for the July election in 1932 is regarded as the most violent in German history. In particular between KPD and NSDAP supporters it came to massive clashes and even shootings” – Wikipedia
These groups were much like the ANTIFA groups of today. Comprised from labor and trade unions, Marxists and anarchists. After Hitler, ANTIFA arose again in Germany in 1944. In 1945, the antifascist committee in the city of Olbernhau included 3 Communists and 3 Social Democrats. The antifascist committee in Leipzig had 9 members, including 3 liberals and “progressive” Christians. Again, we can easily compare the ANTIFA of the 20s and 30s to the ANTIFA of today. Perhaps one exception is that today’s ANTIFA is COMPLETELY ANTI-CHRISTIAN. Today’s ANTIFA is even comprised of members of the Satanic Church and members of “WITCH COVENS”.
One should also trace the ANTIFA movement as far back as the 1917 Russian Bolshevik Revolution. This was a revolution that manifested from an insurgency that emerged in 1914. Members of society were not happy with the government and sought to overthrow it and implement a Egalitarian Utopian society with Marxist Communism. What emerged was Marxism-Leninism and then shortly after Stalinism. This insurgency was drawn heavily from the “WORKER” and Proletariat and espoused that the commerce system had created a great inequality amongst the people generating a society with two classes the have’s and have-nots.
Members of Antifa
However, the insurgency that emerged in 1914 had its roots from an earlier time. The Bolsheviks attempted an insurgency between the years 1905 – 1907. It culminated in what has become known as “The February Revolution”. This included the use of violence from the proletariat worker class against the bourgeoise to convince them to join their cause against the tsars and monarchy. The very roots of ANTIFA can be traced back as far as The Emancipation of Labor Party in Russia. This was the first Marxist party of Russia and it was founded in 1883.
Another very frightening fact is that many of the Marxist groups who spawned revolution in Russia during the 18 and 1900’s drew inspiration from a group known as the Jacobins. The Jacobins were a radical activist group who originated in France during the early 1790’s and were heavy influencers in the French Revolution. They are reputed to be the MOST VIOLENT PROTEST GROUP during the French Revolution and were notedly responsible for the bloodiest time in the conflict known as “The Terror”.
Today there is a very popular leftist website known as Jacobin. Many “Anti-Fascists” contribute and get their facts from this magazine. Although Jacobin is most popular amongst anarchists; it is chuck full of social justice fodder. The entire publication is an overt act of subversion.
This might possibly be the longest article you’ve ever read…..IF… you made it this far. America is LITERALLY one destabilizing event away from being at a point where a primed insurgency can capitalize on the socio-political conditions required to move from the guerrilla warfare stage to mobile warfare or a war of movement. The wise person recognizes and prepares. The fool is taken by the moment.
As a former Special Forces soldier (Green Beret). I have been trained to wage Unconventional Warfare. I have been trained to teach it, recognize it, counter it and execute it. Several years ago, when I wrote 1984 Redux; Say Hello to Big Brother; I awoke and began to see how clearly, we were all subjects of the current civil war that is being waged. Once more the enemy is the same old scourge of the new age. The cancer that eats away everything in it’s path. Justified, generation after generation by the lowly and scathing.
The author as a Green Beret
Forever claiming that, “Its never been done right before…but this time its different.” Powered by hate fueled by victim-hood and the perception of injustice. This disease is spread by the cowardly, weak and loathsome who detest liberty and the pursuit of happiness. They who dare trade liberty for the false sense of security and equality under tyranny. They who refuse to rise to their true human potential or would allow others to do the same because of their own decrepit insecurities.
They dwell in basements and leech from society; feeding off the strength and resources of others. All the while proclaiming their righteous victim-hood. It is for the sake of fighting communism that I write this article for you today and am commissioning you the reader to take up arms. Practicing in the ways of the enemy so in order to defeat them. Your enemy is willing to do whatever it takes, by any means necessary to crush you. If you are not willing to be proactive and do the same, you’re already dead.
