PsyWar: Militant Islam's Worst Enemy

"The murderous attacks on Charlie Hebdo might be the most famous example of Islamist violence against cartoonists, but they are far from the only example.  These attacks, however, reveal what "militant Islam" fears most: military-grade psychological warfare that will make Charlie Hebdo's cute pictures of Mohammad, including one of Mohammad as a victim of Islamist violence, look like Chihuahuas in comparison to Rottweilers, the genetic heirs of the Roman Empire's dogs of war.  Colonel Paul Linebarger, one of the world's foremost authorities on PsyWar, wrote of propaganda, "Yet success, though incalculable, can be overwhelming; and failure, though undetectable, can be mortal."  This is exactly why Islamists fear it."
