A Hybrid war is when the United States meshes its Color Revolution and Unconventional Warfare strategies together to create a unified toolkit for carrying out regime change in targeted states. The United States is far ahead of any other country in practicing this new method of warfare, as no other state has attempted a Color Revolution thus far, let alone transitioned it into an Unconventional War when the initial regime change plans failed. Hybrid wars are created from the ground-up by the United States, and are specifically deployed in areas where they’d be most geostrategically advantageous for the promotion of America's unipolar objectives.
For example, when a Color Revolution attempt fails, as it did in Syrian war in 2011, the backup plan is to roll out an Unconventional War that builds directly upon the former’s social infrastructure and organizing methods.
In the case of EuroMaidan, Western propaganda mediums such as Newsweek, Guardian, and Reuters began reminding everyone that in the days immediately prior to the coup’s successful completion, western Ukraine was in full-scale rebellion against the central government and the stage was set for an unconventional Syrian-type War in the heart of Eastern Europe. Had it not been for the sudden overthrow of President Viktor Yanukovych, the United States was prepared to take the country down the path of the Syrian scenario. A hybrid war did come into full swing with the 2014-2021 Donbas war, and expanded with the NATO war in Ukraine beginning in 2022.
