A nine-dash line on Chinese passports. A second Navy disguised as a Coast Guard. And the above video. They get it. “Strategic Messaging” has heavy doses of propaganda. We, on the other hand, continue to vigorously deny that basic fact. And that the most effective propaganda is based in truth.
The video above is not simply for Chinese consumption. We would do well to understand that. And build our Navy accordingly. But alas, our SECNAV is more concerned with putting women in Marine Infantry outfits and his “green fuels” initiative. And the Commander in Chief is off taking selfies and complaining that capitalism causes glaciers to melt in the summer.
We’re so screwed.
