Psychological Warfare

"Capture their minds and their hearts and souls will follow"

Author Unknown

Psychological warfare is designed to affect a persons perception ... the use of information against the mind.

There is so much literature on psychological warfare and so many examples from all wars, to include our most current war that I thought this would be a great opportunity for you to lurk about. Find something unusual and share it with a colleague. This is one topic you could spend hours exploring and then ask yourself, where did all the time go...

I will share with you some of the sites I found interesting -- feel free to explore others!

Propaganda & Psychological Studies. This site provides links to definitions, theory, and reports.

Psywar Leaflets and Documents. Offers a visual of actual leaflets dropped in WWII, Vietnam, and the Gulf. Warning....some are very graphic!

CNN News U.S. propaganda to Taliban: "You are condemned". This article tells us how the U.S forces delivered a message to the Taliban to surrender. Also, linked on this site is the text of other leaflets dispersed in Afghanistan.
