Notes

Kronzky
This command might be buggy in ArmA (or the description regarding enemy status is wrong). See this discussion.
Ceeeb
Setting the civilian side to be the enemy of any other side will result in the other side attacking inanimate mission editor placed objects such as empty vehicles and static objects, since these objects belong to the civilian side.
T_D
Be aware that this command only sets the friendliness of one side. If you want to have both sides attacking each other, you have to set both:Resistance setFriend [East, 0]; East setFriend [Resistance, 0];
