The U.S. military is affected by the efforts of the Donovan forces in undermining its military activity. This could have significant consequences for the war, and thus it is essential to find ways of overcoming the resistance.
To explain further, the Donovan forces use a combination of public media and planned military activity to disrupt the U.S. military operation in Atropia. They convey unfavorable images of the U.S. army in the news media while also encouraging populations to take action against American efforts. Donovans rely heavily on information technology in their operations, and they found a way of jamming American signals, thus disrupting missions and putting lives at stake. They attack civilian populations, which has an adverse effect on local commerce while also scaring civilians. Their activity is particularly focused on the city of Remzi, and there is evidence that the attacks are planned to weaken Atropia’s defense. Although the U.S. military took action to spread information about the issue, it is still unclear as to whether it will be useful in attracting the cooperation of local people.
To exemplify the situation, the Donovan forces jammed the U.S. satellite communications before a mission for an unmanned aerial recon. The mission had to be canceled because it was not possible to control the drones. In response to these events, the U.S. developed flyers to be distributed to Atropian citizens that contained pictures of jamming equipment and asked them to identify similar tech and report it. The people are also invited to report any suspicious activity that could be associated with separatist groups through a hotline, as this could help to prevent attacks and disrupt Donovan operations.
