Birth of has Nation is the reproduction of organizational wall chart of jihadist networks structure, published by IntelCenter private intelligence agency. Birth of a Nation, web connections is the reproduction of connections between mailbox, blog, and pro-jihadi website. These connection networks are published on the site https://krypt3ia.wordpress.com/page/4/?s=maltego.

Without image, this history painting is symptomatic of new military strategies which followed the attacks of September 9/11, where the enemy is no longer localised in a territory but is first identifiable by a network. The constant development of communications technology enables individuals who share common interests to organise themselves across land borders to form embryonic states or « proto-nations » challenging the traditional geographical and physical model of the nation state.

 

<(Fr.) Birth of a Nation est la reproduction d’organigrammes de réseaux djihadistes, publiés par l’agence de renseignements privée IntelCenter. Birth of a Nation, web connections est la reproduction des connexions entre boite mail, blog, et site web de pro-djihadiste. Ces réseaux de connexion sont publiés sur le site https://krypt3ia.wordpress.com/page/4/?s=maltego.

En faisant l’économie de l’image, cette « peinture » d’histoire est symptomatique des nouvelles stratégies militaires qui font suite aux attentats du 11 septembre 2001, où l’ennemi n’est plus localisable sur un territoire mais est d’abord identifiable via un réseau. Le constant développement des technologies de communications permet aux individus partageant des intérêts communs de s’organiser par-delà les frontières terrestres pour former des états embryonnaires ou « proto-nations »remettant en cause le modèle traditionnel, géographique et physique de l’État/nation.>
