Not by force, but through constructive destruction, through refusal to participate in it. But after the last demand to stop NATO was again rejected, it was decided to use force». So the overall goal of this war is to overturn the presence of NATO in central and eastern European countries? «We see that most of the institutions are, in our view, one-sided and illegitimate.

Analyzing The American Hybrid War on Ethiopia

... its hitherto successful resistance to the American hybrid war all the more significant. The leader in the Horn of Africa is a very diverse country, whose many people could be pitted against one another through information warfare to provoke another round of civil war that would help the TPLF’s U.S.-backed anti-government crusade.
