re: ‘postmodern’ wars, ‘the second deterrence’, the globally constituted accident and ‘sightless vision’

To my mind, therefore, the integral accident, the automation of warfare, and the RMA are all part of the shift towards the second deterrence and the explosion of the information bomb…this situation has arisen because the sovereignty of the state is no longer accepted…Hence not only the crisis of geopolitics and geostrategy but also the shift towards the emergence and dominance of chronostrategy…The development and deployment of drones and Cruise missiles involves the continuing development of the vision machine. Research on Cruise missiles is intrinsically linked to the development of vision machines

From Paulo Virilio in Conversation with John Armitage, wherein Virilio explains how THE KOSOVO WAR TOOK PLACE IN ORBITAL SPACE.
