It is a fundamental mistake to see the enemy as a set of targets. The enemy in war is a group of people. Some of them will have to be killed. Others will have to be captured or driven into hiding. The overwhelming majority, however, have to be persuaded. — Frederick Kagan
A bit about the Shakespeare myth. Odd that the author of this book seems to buy the Mozart myth, considering it as FACT.
Will Shaksper, or “Shakespeare” was, for all that historical records can tell us, a grain-merchant and businessman from a rural outpost and center for sheep slaughtering about 100 miles from London. He was not a poet or a writer; he certainly possessed no books or manuscripts of is great work. So, how did he manage to write the greatest works of literature in English? Answer: He didn’t.
A traumatic event, another story that seemed off and full of holes, a foundation, a speaking tour, occultist numbers, wall to wall coverage on CNN when it dominated. All the characteristics of a psyOp. Now there’s a book – can a movie be far behind (perhaps there was a made-for-TV one I missed)?

Elizabeth Smart, kidnapped as teen in Utah for ninemonths, recounts horrific ordeal in new memoir
SALT LAKE CITY — Minutes after 14-year-old Elizabeth Smart was snatched from her bedroom in the dead of night, a police cruiser idled by along a neighborhood street as she was forced to the ground at knifepoint. “Move and I will kill you!” her captor hissed.
It was one of several fleeting times Smart watched a rescue slip away during her nine-month ordeal, she recounts in “My Story,” a 308-page book being released by St. Martin’s Press on Monday.
Just when you thought you’d heard enough space barf, Gravity comes out and ruins it for everybody. We’re going to get megadoses of NASA lies for a while, I’m afraid.
Really, Chris, your number one fear should have been about drowning in the NASA space pool, not floating away. I hear that in Gravity, however, they didn’t do any filming under water. They didn’t even use the 0G plane. Instead, they did it all hanging from wires. Guess we won’t see any more bubbles in future NASA footage.
It’s the fate every astronaut dreads: To quote Col. Chris Hadfield, author of the new memoir “An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth” (Little, Brown), “My number one concern . . . is to avoid floating off into space.”
After that, Sandra Bullock and George Clooney had to train to execute extremely convoluted dancing-in-space choreographies with perfect timing. They became Russian ballerinas doing their numbers suspended in a virtual reality box.
I don’t remember this story too well from 2009,Maersk Alabama hijacking – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, but that’s all going to change this week when Tom Hanks comes to a screen near you (on 10/11). So we’ve got an ongoing, current, boat psyOp going on www.cluesforum.info/viewtopic….in Italy. That dovetails nicely into the release of a blockbuster movie Captain Phillips (2013), which is about an older Somalia psyOp. Lies built on lies built on lies. Compounding lies, exponential lies if you like. We need a fakeologist phrase for it. Makes your head spin, does it? It’s no wonder Hollywool is so successful, and has been contracted out to manufacture news. That’s vertical integration for you, globalized!
The Maersk Alabama hijacking was a series of events involving piracy that began with four Somali pirates seizing the cargo ship MV Maersk Alabama 240 nautical miles (440 km; 280 mi) southeast of the Somali port city of Eyl The surviving pirate, Abduwali Abdukhadir Muse, was held on the USS Bonhomme Richard and was eventually flown to the U.S. for trial. In a federal courtroom in New York City, prosecutors brought charges that included piracy, conspiracy to seize a ship by force, and conspiracy to commit hostage-taking. Muse’s lawyers asked that he be tried as a juvenile, alleging he was either 15 or 16 years old at the time of the hostage taking, but the court ruled Muse was not a juvenile and would be tried as an adult. Muse later pled guilty to piracy charges and was handed a prison sentence of 33 years and nine months. Lawsuit On 27 April 2009, Maersk Alabama crew member Richard E. Hicks filed a lawsuit against his employer, Waterman Steamship Corporation and Maersk Line, Ltd., for knowingly sending him into pirate-infested waters near Somalia. Houston attorney Terry Bryant, who is representing Richard Hicks, said the ship owners knowingly exposed their employees to imminent danger and took no steps to provide appropriate levels of security and safety for their employees.[
Captain Phillips is a multi-layered examination of the 2009 hijacking of the U.S. container ship Maersk Alabama by a crew of Somali pirates. It is – through director Paul Greengrass’s distinctive lens – simultaneously a pulse-pounding thriller, and a complex portrait of the myriad effects of globalization.
