The man who exploded bombs in the Norwegian capital of Oslo and gunned down at least 76 young people in cold-blood at a nearby island resort, investigators have found, has been a keen student of modern terrorist warfare and made some reference to Sri Lanka's Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) and has offered his support to some weird theory that Sri Lanka was preparing to deport all Muslims from the country.
In a 1,518 page manifesto, the self-confessed killer Anders Behring Breveik had compiled over nine months titled "2083; a European Declaration of Independence", investigators in Oslo say, deals with different generations of warfare.
Commenting on the fourth generation warfare, this is what he said;
"Fourth Generation War is normally characterised by a “stateless” entity fighting a state or regime (the EUSSR). Fighting can be physically such as Hezbollah or the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) to use two modern examples. In this realm the 4GW entity uses all three levels of Fourth Generation War. These are the physical (actual combat; it is considered the least important), mental (the will to fight, belief in victory, etc) and moral (the most important, this includes cultural norms, etc) levels.
“Fighting can also be without the physical level of war. This is via non-violent means. Examples of this could be Gandhi’s opposition to the British Empire or by Martin Luther King’s marches. Both desired their factions to deescalate the conflict while the state escalates against them, the objective being to target the opponent on the moral and mental levels rather than the physical level. The state is then seen as a bully and loses support".
In the manifesto at page 1235 under the heading "Controversial Principles" he declares what causes he supports. Among them are the excessive US cultural influence; opposition to US bases on European soil; pro Russian nationalism; the partitioning of South Africa (into white and black states); and support for the deportation of Muslims from Europe, the Philippines, China and Sri Lanka. The words are "Pro-Sri Lanka (supports the deportation of all Muslims from Sri Lanka).
