DIAZ PEREZ, Katherinne  y  GONZALEZ MARTIN, Olga Rosa. Information operations against Cuba under Trump Administration's Unconventional Warfare. Rev Nov Pob [online]. 2022, vol.18, n.36, pp.362-399.  Epub 15-Nov-2022. ISSN 1817-4078.

The so-called Unconventional Warfare (UW), although it is not a new concept or method, remains fully valid today. The use of methods other than those of “conventional warfare” has become a strategic tool of US foreign policy, which has among its main objectives interference for the purpose of political subversion to delegitimize and overthrow progressive and anti-hegemonic regimes. To fulfill this purpose, first of all they study the situation of the population and the country, and then they promote actions aimed at generating discontent, discomfort and insecurity with emphasis on certain sectors, social and political forces, as well as developing media campaigns that hyperbolize the difficulties, while trying to cause discredit and distrust in political leaders. The article explained how the American government has implemented information operations as part of its Unconventional Warfare campaign against Cuba during the first two years of the Donald Trump Administration. Thus, we systematized the doctrinal and theoretical precepts regarding UW and analyzed it as part of political communication conceptions. In addition to this, we made a qualitative content analysis to 1450 data published between January 20, 2017 and January 20, 2019 in 165 non-official media; interviewed experts and made a bibliographic research. We concluded that the Cuban counter-revolution´s media are applying the UW doctrinal postulates.
