Geopolitical conflict is now less about the collision of massive armies and much more about a combination of intelligence, espionage, criminal networks, cyberwarfare, psychological warfare, information warfare, and an overall blend of strategies in addition to traditional “hot” war mechanisms like troop deployment, as well as more modern twists on military engagement including drone strikes and cyberoffensives. Russian psychological warfare of the Cold War era presaged much of what was to come in modern day spy vs. spy intensity, and the advent of the Internet, social media, and an entirely new digital threat horizon heralds the growth of this form of conflict for years and decades to come.
