Fourth Generation Warfare and Tuna

One of the warfare types in the Unrestriced Warfare (a book the that expands both 4GW and 5GW thinking) is economic aid warfare. If you couple that technique with Ideological warfare and Tuna you get this (from Political Warfare.org) tactic as part of Hugo’s South American 4GW:

Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chavez is sending cans of tuna to Peruvian earthquake victims – with a picture of himself on the label.Joining Chavez on the tuna can is Lt. Col. Ollanta Humala, his favored candidate to become president of Peru.”Thousands of cans of tuna with photos of the Venezuelan president and his Peruvian subordinate Humala are being distributed in the disaster zones,” the Lima newspaper Expreso reports.

This does raise a serious question for Chavez supporters among the left: Is this Dolphin-safe tuna?

  1. Lol. Chavez is no doubt a straight up loon, IMO, but he’s got a firm grasp on propaganda and the methodology of self promotion. Consider the Citgo heating oil gift to poor households here in the north east this past winter.
