Nahezu alles, was derzeit zu passieren scheint, wird mit dem neuen Modewort der „Hybriden Kriegführung“, bei der eine Reihe „irregulärer“ Mittel (Spezialeinheiten, Informationskrieg…) zur Anwendung kämen, beschrieben, der sich zu bedienen vor allem Russland beschuldigt wird (siehe IMI-Studie 2017/13). Im National Interest erschien nun eine bündige Kritik des Konzeptes: „First, hybrid warfare is something that is ongoing. Thus, we are at war. Second, hybrid warfare is something that contains a broad and indefinite range of tools. Thus, all sectors and aspects of our societies are targeted in this ongoing war—all the time. Third, there is no shared understanding or common definition of what constitutes hybrid war. Almost anything can be hybrid warfare. […] Fourth, as we are on the verge of being attacked all the time, our societies must be mobilized for this war. Fifth, there is no end in sight for this hybrid war: as there is no clear understanding of what constitutes hybrid warfare (it can be almost anything), how can we ever achieve peace? Sixth, as we cannot achieve peace, continuous—eternal—societal mobilization against external and internal threats is needed.” (jw)
