War Movies Worth a Damn: The East

‘The East’ Shows Why Indonesia’s War of Independence Is a Bridge Between WWII and Vietnam

 

Before you watch the movie it would do you good to familarize yourself with the History of this little known War, often called “The Dutch Vietnam”:

As an amateur military historian and writer, I really enjoyed the authentic “feel” of this movie.

Was it over the top in parts? Sure, but all great war movies are in one way or another.

Early Cold War Conflicts like this that show the basic tenets of Asymmetrical Warfare are really important for the armed citizen to study.

Some excellent information here.

Drones are going to be part and parcel of Modern Guerilla Warfare, so take notes.

Refusal: The Founding Concept of Guerilla Warfare

Two insidents occurred yesterday that underscore one of the fundamental tenets of Guerilla Warfare: REFUSAL.

Fellow blogger EatGruelDog had a great comment on this incident, stating:

“Do you get it? A small group overpowered the bus taking them to their confinement and escaped. Why? First off, because they were willing to. Those in power will do whatever they can only as long as they are allowed to. When everyone reacts the way the Haitians did the system has a problem. But people have to be willing to act and to act in such a manner that they achieve their set goal. Yes. surprise helped, but without the spur to action, the surprise meant nothing. Look what BLM has accomplished. It is certainly a Hell of a lot more than our side has. And why? They are willing to act, to get into the streets and force change whether the authorities like it or not. Our time is near to coming and we must show the same willingness or be done for.”

Folks, we need to understand that when the situation is DIRE, you have to be prepared to do DIRE things!

Unity and Singleness of Purpose are Fundmental in a struggle like this and it is clear the Left have grasped this fact better than we have.

We must be pro-active in our REFUSAL and ACT!

Allowing the enemy time to dictate the cadence of the conflict is a mistake.

We cannot continue to be a REACTIONARY force and expect to gain any ground.

Taken from an Essay I did way back in 2014 titled A CO’s Synopsis on Guerilla Warfare.

Michael Collins, a founding member of the IRA stated the following precepts:

  • The Guerilla’s first and primary weapon is REFUSAL.

  • The Guerilla is an Invisible Army. His uniform is that of the common man on the street. He can come out of a crowd, strike the enemy, then vanish back into it.

  • Always strike the enemy ON YOUR OWN TERMS.

 

The Essence of Guerilla Warfare is MINDSET

 

Charlie didn’t get much USO.

He was dug in too deep or moving too fast.

His ideal of good R&R was some cold rice and a little rat meat.

He had only two ways home: Death or Victory.

 

In the above passage, “Charlie” is the Vietcong

but you could just as easily apply this to the Taliban as well…

If you want to survive the coming shit storm

you are gong to have to re-calibrate your mindset to that of a GUERILLA FIGHTER.

Minimalist should be the top word in your vocabulary.

Operation Dingo: Rhodesian raids on New Farm and Tembue

Know Your Guerilla Warfare/Small Unit Tactics History.

Badlands Fieldcraft

Operation Dingo is an excellent example of a small but determined force using ingenuity, aggression and surprise to overwhelm a far larger enemy force.

In November of 1976 the Rhodesian security forces were fighting an uphill battle trying to keep their country safe from Marxist terrorists infiltrating their country. The Rhodesians were vastly outnumbered but determined, with their backs against the wall as they protected their country and families from international Marxism.

The Rhodesians had learned the location of two large enemy training camps (New Town, also called Chimoio, and Tembue) across the border in Mozambique. These camps had to be eliminated to relieve pressure on the security forces trying to protect the country. With world political leaders working against them in any way they could, including the UK and United States (it’s shameful how the US government publicly turned their backs, and privately encouraged, what was happening there), and…
