False flag

False flag
"False colors" redirects here. For the imaging technique, see False-color. False flag (or black flag) describes covert operations designed to deceive in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by entities, groups, or nations other than those who actually planned and executed them. Operations carried out during peace-time by civilian organizations, as well as covert government agencies, may by extension be called false flag operations if they seek to hide the real organization behind an operation. In its most modern usage, the term may also refer to those events which governments are cognizant of and able to stop but choose to allow to happen (or "stand down"), as a strategy to entangle or prepare the nation for war.

Dirty War Declassified documents of the Chilean secret police cite an official estimate by the Batallón de Inteligencia 601 of 22,000 killed or "disappeared" between 1975 and mid-1978. During this period, in which it was later revealed 8,625 "disappeared" in the form of PEN detainees who were held in clandestine detention camps throughout Argentina before eventually being freed under diplomatic pressure.[11] The number of people believed to have been killed or "disappeared," depending on the source, range from 9,089 to 30,000 in the period from 1976 to 1983, when the military was forced from power following Argentina's defeat in the Falklands War.[12][13] The National Commission on the Disappearance of Persons estimates that around 13,000 were disappeared.[14] After democratic government was restored, Congress passed legislation to provide compensation to victims' families. The exact chronology of the repression is still debated, however, as in some senses the long political war started in 1969.

Zen Flower Radio Irregular military Irregular military refers to any non-standard military.[clarification needed] Being defined by exclusion, there is significant variance in what comes under the term. It can refer to the type of military organization, or to the type of tactics used. An irregular military organization is a military organization which is not part of the regular army organization of a party to a military conflict. Irregulars are soldiers or warriors that are members of these organizations, or are members of special military units that employ irregular military tactics. Irregular warfare is warfare employing the tactics commonly used by irregular military organizations. Other names for irregular military formations[edit] The term "irregular military" describes the "how" and "what", but it is more common to focus on the "why". Intense debates can build up over which of these terms to use when referring to a specific group. It is possible for a military to cross the line between regular and irregular.

» 10 Facts That Prove The Bin Laden Fable Is a Contrived Hoax Alex Jones Paul Joseph Watson May 9, 2011 Merely a week after President Obama announced the death of Osama Bin Laden, there is literally a deluge of evidence that clearly indicates the whole episode has been manufactured for political gain and to return Americans to a state of post-9/11 intellectual castration so that they can be easily manipulated in the run up to the 2012 election. Here are ten facts that prove the Bin Laden fable is a contrived hoax…. 1) Before last Sunday’s raid, every intelligence analyst, geopolitical commentator or head of state worth their salt was on record as stating that Osama Bin Laden was already dead, and that he probably died many years ago, from veteran CIA officer Robert Baer, to former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, to former FBI head of counterterrorism Dale Watson. 2) The official narrative of how the raid unfolded completely collapsed within days of its announcement.

List of military tactics This page contains a list of military tactics. General tactics[edit] Force concentration - the practice of concentrating a military force against a portion of an enemy force[1]Exploiting prevailing weather - the tactical use of weather as a force multiplier has influenced many important battles throughout history, such as the Battle of Waterloo[2]Night combat - combat that takes place at night. It often requires more preparation than combat during daylight and can provide significant tactical advantages and disadvantages to both the attacker and defender[3]Reconnaissance - a mission to obtain information by visual observation or other detection methods, about the activities and resources of the enemy or potential enemy, or about the meteorologic, hydrographic, or geographic characteristics of a particular area.[4]Fire Attacks: Reconnaissance by fire is used by apprehensive soldiers when they suspect the enemy is lurking nearby.

CADPAT The temperate variant of CADPAT Canadian Disruptive Pattern (CADPAT; French: dessin de camouflage canadien, DcamC)[1] is the computer-generated digital camouflage pattern currently used by the Canadian Forces (CF). CADPAT is designed to reduce the likelihood of detection by night vision devices.[1] Background[edit] Canada's desire for a new soldier system dates back to November 1988 and closely follows efforts in many NATO countries. Pattern variations[edit] In development for the better part of a decade, the pattern comes in three varieties: temperate woodland (TW), arid region (AR), and winter/arctic (WA). Temperate woodland[edit] Canadian soldier wearing tactical vest and the fragmentation protective vest. CADPAT TW has four specific colours—light green, dark green, brown, and black—and was first introduced in 1996 on the helmet cover for the new CG634 helmet then coming into service.

MARPAT A 2003 drawing showcasing the Marine Corps Combat Utility Uniform in desert and woodland-camouflaged variants. MARPAT (short for MARine PATtern) is a digital camouflage pattern in use with the United States Marine Corps, introduced with the Marine Corps Combat Utility Uniform (MCCUU), which replaced the Camouflage Utility Uniform. Its design and concept are based on the Canadian CADPAT pattern. The pattern is formed of small rectangular pixels of color. The United States government has patented MARPAT, including specifics of its manufacture.[1] By regulation, the pattern and items incorporating it, such as the MCCUU and ILBE backpack, are to be supplied by authorized manufacturers only and are not for general commercial sale, although imitations are available such as "Digital Woodland Camo" or "Digital Desert Camo". MARPAT was also chosen because it distinctively identifies its wearers as Marines to their adversaries, while simultaneously helping its wearers remain concealed. A U.S.

U.S. Army universal camouflage trials Final variant of Desert All Over Brush The U.S. Army universal camouflage trials took place from 2002 to 2004 with the goal of creating a single pattern that would provide adequate concealment in all environments. Four different patterns in a total of 13 variations were tested during the evaluation: three woodland patterns, three desert, three urban, three desert/urban, and one multi-environment pattern. The Universal Camouflage Pattern (UCP) found on the Army Combat Uniform was eventually adopted despite not having been part of the test. Development[edit] Six patterns were originally developed in early 2002 and reviewed for effectiveness, with three of the six designs being rejected due to limited effectiveness. Patterns[edit] All Over Brush[edit] All Over Brush pattern. All Over Brush consisted of swirls of colors similar to patches of grass and brush. Shadow Line[edit] Shadow Line pattern. The Shadow Line pattern sported horizontal lines with slashes. Track[edit] Track pattern. MultiCam[edit]

Wartime Camouflage Colours BS987C: 1942 – Camouflage Colours (1) This is a ‘toe-in-the-water’ blog. By that I mean that it makes no claim to be a definitive study of British camouflage colours of World War II, merely a distillation of my current knowledge of camouflage colours as far as they relate to buildings. It is largely based on a combination of documentary research and paint analysis of buildings on a) the site of a wartime bomber station and b) a coastal command centre.Introduction The main concern was for the appearance of buildings as seen from the air. The Royal Air Force was not camouflage conscious until the expansion years of 1935-39. There were two main objectives: firstly, to break up the regularity and conspicuousness of the buildings; and secondly, to break up the airfield into a pattern more closely resembling the surrounding countryside.
