Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Instruction 6504.01, Information Assurance and Computer Network Operations, dated 1 APR 10, is out. Irregulars who want to impress Regulars by larding their conversation with the latest buzz words should memorize these:
War using cyberspace operations to achieve sensational yet bloodless results for friendly forces while seeking to inflict massive inconvenience on the adversary in a manner that offers the most photogenic and telegenic depiction for domestic and international public audiences.
Uniformed and non-uniformed personnel of the Department of Defense, civilian resources, and other government agencies (OGA) conducting fullspectrum cyberwarfare operations.
Make sure you get to p. 11.

Delete my comments, Chirol, and I’ll just post them on my own blog.
The discussion was about local or state approved volunteer self-organized militias for border control
I responded, but Chirol deleted my response. I went to ComingAnarchy and posted this:
Main Entry: in·vade
Function: transitive verb
Inflected Form(s): in·vad·ed; in·vad·ing
Etymology: Middle English, from Latin invadere,
to go — more at wade
Date: 15th century
1 : to enter for conquest or plunder
2 : to encroach upon : infringe
3 a : to spread over or into as if invading : permeate <doubts invade his mind> b : to affect injuriously and progressively <gangrene invades healthy tissue>
— in·vad·er noun
He deleted that, too.
I’m reconstructing the comments deleted from Rethinking the United States from memory. The first deleted comment included the above definition of invader and continued thusly:
Should we really care what their motivations for entering the country illegally are? Does it matter that the first act these potential new Americans did was to violate our laws?
Try walking in to Area 51 sometime and see if they don’t shoot you because you were unarmed.
Is the United States of America worth defending?
If it is, unpleasant things will occassionally happen to vulnerable people who tug at our heartstrings. Shooting a beautiful Latina with a cherubic babe in her arms and another one in the oven is hard to do, but rules are rules, right?
I think that’s the part that got him.
Am I seriously advocating the cold-blooded murder of innocent Mexicans who merely want a better life? Chirol seems to think I am.
Is he seriously advocating forming militias to control the land frontiers of the United States? I thought so yesterday, when I took him seriously.
The other comment he deleted was a simple link to The Battle For America. Notice the map at that link. Where the red touches the border is where subnational paramilitary border protection elements might have a chance.
