Behavioural Conflict: Why Understanding People and Their Motives Will Prove Decisive in Future Conflict by Andrew Mackay and Steve Tatham ; foreword by Stanley McChrystal.

        The Small Wars Journal Blog has a post previewing a new book by Andrew Mackay and Steve Tatham. Behavioural Conflict: Why Understanding People and Their Motives Will Prove Decisive in Future Conflict considers how the West’s Post Cold War conflicts have been fought amongst people rather than between armies. From publisher’s description:

“These people, amongst others, have been Mendes, Kissis and Konos (and the 13 other tribes of Sierra Leone), they have been Serbo-Croats, Bosnians, Kosovars, Albanians, Unizzahs, al-Ribads, al-Zobaids, Kurds, al-Montifig (and the other tribal groups of the nearly 40 that make up Iraq), Pashtuns, Hazaras, Uzbecks (and the other 6 ethnic groupings that make up Afghanistan’s rich tapestry of population), they have been Sunni, Shia, Orthodox, Agnostic, Christian, Catholic; they have been farmers, politicians, police, administrators, businessmen, narco khans, war lords, men, women and children. In fact you can divide them in any one of a hundred or so different ways but the only certainty is that all of these groups and people will exhibit behaviour, that may appear utterly irrational but for better or worse will have profound effects upon the manner in which military missions are conducted.” 

The book is based on a paper written in 2009 for the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom. The tale of the lone Afghan farmer sowing seeds in a field near the Kajaki Dam should be a warning to those from the developed world who underestimate the intelligence of people just because they don’t speak English or have grown up without electricity and running water.

This book will have utility for anyone working in military, peacekeeping, policing or any other other cross cultural situation.

International Praise (Book Jacket Blurbs)

Robert Steele is unusual for an American…he is clearly internationalist in his orientation. He has written a book that can bring us together in facing our greatest enemies: ignorance, poverty, and mistrust.

Rear Admiral Hamit Gulemre Aybars, Turkish Navy (Retired)

Robert Steele’s vision for the future of intelligence is clearly “internationalist” in nature. It focuses on regional partnerships…and on the value of open source intelligence collection.

Rear Admiral Dr. Sigurd Hess, DE N(Ret), Former Chief of Staff, Allied Command Baltic Approaches

Constantly committed to truth and honesty, [his work] demonstrates his ability to grasp the real issues and to take into account the views and concerns of men of good will from all nations and all cultures.

Admiral Pierre Lacoste, French Navy (Ret), Former Director of Foreign Intelligence (DSGE)

Robert Steele goes well beyond the original visions of the best of the Directors of Central Intelligence, and has crafted a brilliant, sensible, and honorable future for the intelligence profession.

Major General Oleg Kalugin, KGB (Ret), former Elected Deputy to the Russian Parliament

Over a broad canvas reflecting the changing nature of information and information technologies, Robert Steele lays the foundation for the future of e-intelligence.

Commodore Patrick Tyrrell, OBE, Royal Navy, United Kingdom

Few have thought as deeply or imaginatively about such questions as a super-smart [now sixty-one]-year old former Marine and intelligence officer named Robert D. Steele…

Alvin & Heidi Toffler, War & Anti-War: Survival at the Dawn of the 21st Century

Steele consistently has been well ahead of the pack in his appreciation for everything from open source research to the implications of technology…his work thrills with its insights and ideas.

Ralph Peters, Fighting for the Future: Will America Triumph?

Robert Steele is about 100 times as smart and 10,000 times as dangerous as the best of the hackers, for he is successfully hacking the most challenging of bureaucracies…for the right reasons.

Bruce Sterling in Hacker Crackdown: Law and Order on the Electronic Frontier

Steele’s concept is simple: Empower the citizen and private sector to gather and analyze intelligence so that we can make informed decisions [using] Open Source Intelligence gathering [that] is faster, smarter, cheaper…

Robert Young Pelton, author, World’s Most Dangerous Places, producer, Come Back Alive

Robert Steele deserves our admiration and our focused attention for bringing the idea of open source information to the fore. His passion to serve the nation by developing this new approach…is exemplary.

Lieutenant General Patrick Hughes, U.S. Army (Retired)
Former Director, Defense Intelligence Agency

Robert Steele storms into the core of intelligence issues without fear. The scope of his work is impressive and whether you agree with him or not, you cannot ignore what he says.

The Honorable Richard Kerr
Former Deputy Director of Central Intelligence

Robert David STEELE Vivas [Vivas is the Latino matronymic] is the intellectual and spiritual practitioner leader of the third era of the craft of intelligence [decision-support], advancing the craft of intelligence far beyond the first era of secret war and the second era of strategic analytics over-whelmed by clandestine and covert programs never intended by President Harry Truman.

Specifically focused on open source everything and the role of transparency, truth, and trust in creating resilient and sustainable hybrid governance rooted in sharing information and collaborative multinational sense-making, he seeks to unify and harmonize  the eight communities that together create the “intelligence commons:” academia, civil society, commerce, government, law enforcement, media, military, and non-governmental/non-profit.

Robert David STEELE Vivas is the academic and practitioner pioneer picking up for Buckminster Fuller, Russell Ackoff, and John N. Warfield, among others, advancing reflexive practice and whole systems analytics to create Smart Nations, the World Brain, and the Global Game.  As the foremost practioner-critic of wasteful and ineffective secret intelligence sources and methods (while still respecting the need for focused accountable secrecy), and as one of the foremost critics of organizational fraud, waste, and abuse — characterizing any falsehood or corrupt act as “sand in the gears” of a complex delicate whole system — he has led the creation of the Strategic Analytic Model and pioneered the concepts for hybrid forms of panarchy in which all minds are linked to all information in all languages all the time, allowing for the harnessing of collective intelligence and wisdom.

Best known outside the world of intelligence for his defense of hackers as pioneers on the bleeding edge full of the “right stuff,” and as the champion for “Open Source Everything” (OSE) he is also the comprehensive architect for electoral, intelligence, governance, and national security reform through the practice of reality-based decision making that is characterized by  intelligence applied with absolute integrity, while calling for a completely transparent process of Multinational, Multiagency, Multidsiciplinary, Multidomain Information-Sharing and Sense-Making (M4IS2).

Four Ideas in One Place

Robert David STEELE Vivas is a natural-born citizen of the USA (a son of New York and decades long resident of Virginia) who ran for President briefly, accepted by the Reform Party as a candidate for their nomination. Working with many others he created We the People Reform Coalition to aggregate the very best ideas from all sides. Using his status as a candidate he connected with every single other candidate from Ron Paul to Rocky Anderson. All of them, without exception, refused to come together around the central issue of our Republic, electoral reform.
