Well I just created a thread in regards to Al-Qaeda being on facebook, and they laughed:

Satire and ridicule can help win the fight against Al-Qaeda by stripping it of its glamour and mystique, a team of British researchers argue in a report released in London and in comments to AFP.

Beating the Islamist movement is as much about winning the battle of ideas and undermining Al-Qaeda's counter-culture cachet as it is about conventional anti-terrorism operations, said the report.

It seems we are falling for their mind control..

LONDON (Reuters) - The way to beat al Qaeda and stop Islamist groups gaining recruits to violent causes is to remove their "cool" image and make fun of terrorists instead, according to a major international study published on Friday.

The two-year study by the British think-tank Demos concluded that the notion of "cool jihad" was more important in seducing young Muslims to violence than radical preachers, the foreign policy of Western governments, or their social background.

Those who became interested in terrorism had more in common with subversive groups such as street gangs and soccer hooligans than with Muslims who held radical views but rejected violence, the Demos report said.

Yup, already working..

Psychological manipulation is a tool to be used and can be highly effective... in almost any situation and is a part of everyone's life every day, to some extent.

*I didn't note anyone laughing at Al Qaeda on that other thread - if anything, it's the idea of recruiting for extremist activities ON face book, that is hilarious (in an incredibly stupid) kind of way...

Sounds to me like they are trying to garner support for people to join the Network, by taking that kind of reverse psychology approach.

It’s awful hard to extort trillions from the taxpayers and ask them to give up basic common rights, and live in a police state if there are no terrorists to wage the war on.

Most of the homegrown cells in the United States have actually been the FBI using informants to encourage at risk groups, like street gangs, to form cells, for the money. The FBI informant then basically pays them to do some preliminary reconnaissance of a target, gives them money to buy a few weapons and then swoops in and arrests them.

There is a real shortage of terrorists, because the truth is, that every illegal immigrant that can run, jump or swim manages to make it into the U.S. just fine. So does tons of narcotics on a daily basis.

So now the intelligence agencies are going to face book to use reverse psychology, in essence saying, terrorism is cool, because it’s not cool.

Pretty pathetic, its time to end the phony war on terror and just stop bombing innocent men, women and children for oil and opium, pay them a restitution, beg their forgiveness, and hopefully in time they will.

That’s the only thing I can think of that would win the war on terror. Stop doing greedy, stupid, violent things that make people hate you!

But the thing is that many people has fallen in to this imaginary group, they have no other choice but to join this imaginary group in order to fight against the American empire..

That being said, "if you believe in something hard enough, it might come true".. That quotation applies here, al-qaeda became alive, and now it is roaming the world like a viscous monster without a leash.. But the monster have a mission, a very, very clear mission.. So it is not aimless non the less.

The aim of this monster is to fight the influence of Western forces and rid that influence from "Muslims lands"..

They will do anything to accomplish that mission, that is why I believe it is not funny, but rather people should wake up.. That awakening will allow the Monster to get what it wants, and leave.. Other wise it will keep haunting you know who/what..
