Some Call It War!
A retired Air Force Brigadier General, Robert Spalding, called it "unrestricted warfare in full force." This was a strategy crafted in the 1990s..."a series of unconventional warfare tactics designed to accomplish the goals of war without engaging in actual combat." This is a war unlike anything we have ever experienced. Some call it hybrid warfare. In playing out this campaign, the regime has combined different elements of warfare-economic, trade, political, misinformation-to "create a convergence of challenges" for the United States and other Western democracies, Spalding said.
