**PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ THIS POST IN IT'S ENTIRETY AND NOT JUMP TO ANY CONCLUSION BEFORE LETTING IT ALL SINK IN**
So I was sitting here after watching the Sotloff video (yes I watched it, there is zero gore).
It's EXACTLY the same format as the Foley video was: Guy in Guantanamo outfit with a professional undershirt studio mic speaks for a few minutes in a
totally cool/calm manner while British Muslim guy brandishes knife. Then British Muslim guy points knife at camera and addresses/taunts OBAMA
directly, and then commences fake cutting as screen fades to black. I don't question that Sotloff is dead, but it didn't happen in this video. I
don't presume to know if IS are what they claim to be.
So I started thinking about the psychological effect these videos are having now that social media has such a huge impact. I started thinking how
THOUSANDS of Americans have died in wars since 2001, HUNDREDS have died in horrible ways, DOZENS beheaded. These types of videos circulated back in
2003 and 2004 and thorugh '06. I started thinking "what is different now??" "why are two dead Americans such a big deal now, when dozens have died
the same way???" The media barely touched those beheadings back in '03-'06, and they certainly didn't hype them like these new videos. But also look
at these two latest 'executions', and look how they are almost "made for TV", it's almost like the media are sanctioning the viewing of these
And the guy (same executioner in both videos) is directly taunting OBAMA. By name, and direct address.
I've decided that these videos are pure manufacured opposition. They are DESIGNED to create a reaction. They taunt Obama directly so that it's
justified when HE reacts. The videos don't address the west, they don't address Congress or the American people, they address ONE MAN, as if he is a
dictator or king. I found this strange. Everything about these videos is strange really.
Now let me remind you about the recent psychological experiments with social media and influencing peoples state of mind collectively.
Make no mistake people. We are living the Reichstag Fire right now. en.wikipedia.org...
If you are not familiar with the
Reichstag Fire, please read the link to learn about the most pivotal event in the 20th century.
And just to illustrate my point, here's a selection of reactions to the Sotloff execution on another ATS thread:

Its time to crush Isis and its supporters! We need to rein so much hell that even to speak the name is a death sentence. Freaking religion of peace,

If we don't go ALL in, hit them hard, fast, ugly, and furious, then we will be participating in a never ending fight with us using passive, weak
reactions to their actions.
I don't see anyone going in hot and heavy to eliminate them.
A damned shame that someone had to die that way. Just add it to the thousands of people in the region that have already suffered under

These animals will only be stopped by direct confrontation by US forces. IMO, if any individual has a suspected link to these rejects of modern
society, they should be wiped out immediately. In fact, the whole damned middle east should be turned to glass.

If we would have fought this way in the first place we wouldn't have this problem right now. They've learned our weaknesses and it's going to be our
downfall. We've spent more money and resources fighting half ass it's incredible.
Like the atom bomb, you go all out and end the war or lose more of OUR people. We're fighting over there because their people are either on their
side, or are too chicken to stand up.
We have 2 Options here in my opinion:
1) Leave that side of the world to their own devices, lose our interests over there and care for ourselves over here with the resources and money
spent on that debacle.
2) Blow the entire thing up, obliterate anything and everything that's fighting against us, whether hiding in a school or not and end it once and for
Anything in between and we will be the ones to pay for it in the end with our way of life and our children's, grand-children's and so on.
These reactions are HUMAN, they are from the heart, from the gut. They are instinctive. I am not calling anyone out, if everything is simple, cut &
dried, these are the logical answers. But does anyone really think this is that simple?? Human reactions are predictable.
For anyone to take these videos as presented and PLASTERED all over the MSM is foolish. Since 1933 have we really learned NOTHING??
I urge you to sit back for a moment after reading this post, and churn it all over in your heads. The presentation, the MSM saturation, the targeted
taunting of the leader of the USA, the production quality and self-censoring. The just-palatable-enough for the average non-critical-thinking Joe.
The perfect storm to polarize the people.
As I said, make no mistake, this is a massive collective herding operation; we are being groomed for something.
