For John, BLUF: It isn't just shooting guns. Nothing to see here; just move along.
I thought this article, "Beijing applying '3 warfares' to South China Sea disputes" was interesting.♠
China is expanding its "three warfares" policy in dealing with Taiwan to its territorial disputes in the South China Sea, reports our Chinese-language sister paper Want Daily. Richard Hu, deputy executive director of the Center for Security Studies at Taipei's National Chengchi University, told the paper that the People's Liberation Army first officially coined the political warfare concept of the "three warfares" back in 2003, being public opinion warfare, psychological warfare and legal warfare.The three warfares are:
- Public Opinion Warfare
- Psychological Warfare
- Legal Warfare
