Filmmaker Lalange Snow photographed and interviewed 14 members of 1st Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland before they were sent to Afghanistan, after three months’ service, and mere days after coming back home from their deployment.
The series, titled “We Are The Not Dead,” is meant to expose how war changes a person, both psychologically and physically, the trauma literally written on their faces.
War changes people, and the soldiers’ faces show a glimpse of the toll that fighting in Afghanistan takes on the troops.
Some western psychiatrists believe that many terrorists have had a difficult childhood producing narcissistic wounds, resulting in “projecting the hated parts of the self onto the outside world”. According to another similar reasoning, “The desire to destroy the establishment is driven by the terrorist’s search for identity.” This dynamic could result in operatives taking unauthorized vengeance against society for their own reasons unrelated to the group’s cause; such acts are equivalent to military officers making politically unauthorized use of their weapons.
In his book, “The Readiness to Kill and Die: Suicidal Terrorism in the Middle East,” a professor of psychology, Ariel Merari who provides a comprehensive analysis of suicide attacks and terrorism by showing how personality characteristics interact with group pressure and public atmosphere, points out,
“Most suicide terrorist attacks are carried out by sub-state groups, whether organized as terrorist groups or as self-starter cells…this is because it is easier for groups to transform susceptible individuals into terrorists by radicalizing, recruiting, indoctrinating and training them to become suicide bombers and then videotaping their commitment to martyrdom. Such groups receive their oxygen from religions and societies that glorify martyrdom into an afterlife in paradise.”
Want to take part in the largest dramatic production Vermont has ever put on? We’re talking a cast of 5,000 participants performing over nine days at 50 sites around the state, at a cost of $570,000. The live-action thriller promises plenty of “death” and “destruction,” and may include one or more of the following simulations: terrorist attacks, collapsed structures, cyber warfare, chemical and/or biological agents, and massive casualties that overwhelm local hospitals.
This theatrical production isn’t for entertainment purposes, however, but a disaster-preparedness drill dubbed Vigilant Guard, which will run from July 25 until August 2. The federally funded exercise, which has been in the works for three years, is designed to test the response capabilities of the state and region’s military and emergency services personnel. Participating agencies will include at least a half dozen local municipalities and 16 area hospitals, as well as Vermont’s Army and Air National Guards, the Department of Homeland Security, the Vermont Department of Health, the American Red Cross, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, to name a few.
There seems to be a great deal of confusion lately about the use of the word ‘hoax’ in regards to the latest traumatic mass casualty events. Events that have been demonstrably proven to be False-Flag actions. In particular the argument is that a Hoax ≠ False-Flag. Or that because real people actually died then it is not a hoax. To address this let’s first start by looking at the definition of ‘hoax’.
to trick or deceive (someone)
to trick into believing or accepting as genuine something false and often preposterous
a plan to deceive a large group of people; a trick:
to deceive, especially by playing a trick on someone
Websters 1828 Dictionary
Noun: Something done for deception or mockery; a trick played off in sport.
Verb transitive: To deceive; to play a trick upon for sport, or without malice. [A colloquial word, but not elegant.]
A hoax is a deliberately fabricated falsehood made to masquerade as truth. It is distinguishable from errors in observation or judgment, or rumors, urban legends, pseudosciences or April Fools’ Day events that are passed along in good faith by believers or as jokes.
Rumors have been swirling all week that a national “Day of Rage” has been planned for Friday to protest the recent police-involved shootings of black men in Louisiana and Minnesota.
A group claiming to be part of the hacktivist group “Anonymous” posted a video on July 9 to promote the protests, featuring graphic footage from the Alton Sterling and Philando Castile shootings. In their message to “citizens of the world,” an account calling itself the “TheAnonMessage” said, “We are calling on a collective day of rage. A day of action centered around civil disobedience and the right to protest.”
Started streaming 3 hours ago NICE, France — A long white truck ran into a crowd of people in Nice, France, on Bastille Day, killing “probably” 30 people and injuring 100 more, a local prefecture official told CNN.
Fox News says Sky News is reporting 60 are dead.
The driver of the truck that drove into a crowd in Nice was shot dead by police, Pierre-Henry Brandet, a spokesman for the French Interior Minister, tells CNN.
One witness, an American who was about 15 feet from the truck, said the driver pointed his tractor trailer into the crowd, mowing bodies over.
Robert David Steele joins the program to discuss the political and historical context of false flag terror in the post-9/11, Sandy Hook and now Orlando eras. From vast experience in public service as a CIA case officer he argues how the US government has been long-influenced by forces working decidedly against the American public.
Steele suggests how the efficacy of probable false flag events to influence public policy is aggravated by the American people’s conditioned apathy and often willful ignorance toward public life itself.
In a stunning turnaround, the Istanbul Ataturk Airport opened for business at 2:20 am local time on Wednesday June 29, after the alleged triple suicide bombing that began at 9:50 pm the night before. In a little over four hours, the airport was able to clean up all the blood and body parts that would have resulted from the mass shooting and three bombs that were said to have been detonated. At present, the death toll is reported at 42, with 239 injured.
Citizen journalist Robin from Honr.info and YouTube channel HowISee the World joins James this week to discuss the Orlando mass shooting event and other related “terrorist” narratives now commonplace in the corporate media terrain.
Robin’s online research and analysis of such poorly-understood incidents suggest how easy it should be for journalists and news organizations to examine the storylines presented by government agencies and spokespersons. Over the past several years he has made dozens of recorded calls to the very official parties whose feet need to be held to the fire, including the FBI and medical personnel, yet who are rarely held to account in any meaningful way by salaried reporters.
In July 2015, I reported on and analyzed the FBI’s Communities Against Terrorism Program and concluded that it made every adult citizen a terrorism suspect. In January 2016, the FBI announced that it wants to make every high school teacher, administrator and student in America a spy toreport to it or local State police suspicious words or activity by any teenager attending our schools. The FBI was not satisfied with its 2012 Communities Against Terrorism Program which asks our neighbors to read any of 25 widely circulated posters and then to report us if we act in certain suspicious ways. Now the FBI has widened its net to over 15 million teenagers in our high schools.
As I explained previously, the dangerous speech which the FBI wanted our neighbors to report included, for example, (1) posting anti-government or environmental slogans, banners, or signs that imply violence; (2) spraying anti-government graffiti; (3) downloading material of an extreme or radical nature with violent themes, or preoccupation with press coverage of terrorist attacks; (4) making unusual anti‑U.S. comments; or (5) making extreme racist or religious statements coupled with sentiments which appear to condone violence. As can be seen from this list of overbroad, vague and legally protected activities or speech which the FBI claims are red flags for terrorism, the FBI has little concern for our Bill of Rights, such as the right to speak freely or to read what we want.[Emphasis added.-Ed.]
The “worst mass shooting in U.S. history” is reported to have occurred between 2 am and 5 am on Sunday morning, June 12, at Pulse, a nightclub in Orlando, Florida. The “act of terror” is said to have produced 49 dead and 53 injured. A 50th death was that of the “shooter,” identified as Omar Seddique Mateen, who was employed as a security guard since 2007 by the giant multinational security company G4S. The circumstances of the Orlando “massacre” are suspicious to say the least, with many details fitting into the existing playbook for staged shootings occurring across the U.S.
G4S, the world’s largest security company by revenue, has its US headquarters in Jupiter, Florida, but operates in “more than 100 countries,” with “more than 50,000 employees in the United States.” G4S “has the international reach and resources to meet the security needs of the global age.” The company has expressed its condolences over the tragic event and is cooperating “fully” with the FBI and other agencies who are investigating the “unspeakable tragedy.”
