For as long as nations have existed, so too have wars between nations. Additionally, battles within nations—commonly referred to as civil wars— have resulted in the demise of many countries throughout history.
In the modern era, however, a new category of war has begun to emerge. These battles are not fought with guns or tanks, nor do they employ other traditional elements of warfare.
They do, however, involve a calculated plan of attack. Unlike traditional warfare, these attacks do not target human beings, but rather a nation’s cultural and social foundations. Equally disconcerting is the fact that the perpetrators are often those holding high level political positions within these countries.
