Nothing new to people who had lived through these times in Europe. But "psssst" can't say it open. I have always believed that most "terrorist"
attacks are "false flags". Having quite some knowledge in irregular warfare under the ideals of a "total defense" of one's country, most
terrorists acts are totally "stupid" from a military POV. I had been pondering for quite some time now IF I should start a thread about this topic.
You just got ahead of me.
In any "true" revolution/resistance, any action should be directed at the "enemy", never at the civilians. This means military and logistic
targets, and if in a drawn out conflict the deliberate assassination of the opposition and their henchmen and supporters. Bombing a shopping mall or a
train and holding hostages is NOT part of this manual.
There is a hell of a difference for example to just blow up a bomb in a shopping mall or Pub, and to deliberately blow up a convention of the
In many cases it is said that the civilian "enabler" is as guilty as the official "oppressor". This argument is often underlined with the passive
compliance of the civil servants during the Nazi regime by sifting through documents in archives to exposing Jews and others. "I just did my Job"...
excuse. This is a much more "legal and moral" question. yet in an act of revolution and resistance, one has to rely on the civilian population for
support and logistics. Thus a deliberate act of terrorism directed at a common civilian target is counterproductive to the goal. However to blow up a
meeting of Party X would severely damage the command structure of the enemy, and then also I have 200 civilian dead, I actually have killed off 200 of
those scheming to oppose our goals.
Looking at 99% of all acts of terror during this time and even today, show that there is hardly any tactical or strategic and political goal in these
acts. One has to understand that the "true enemy" is not in uniform. The troops loyal to him or still unaware of his goals are just the "visible"
part of the oppressors enforcement apparatus. The actual spy and snitch is always in civilian clothes, so is the undercover agent/cop etc.
Also under the Geneva convention for irregular warfare, an opposition group has to be "identifiable". Meaning that also one might be dressed just in
slippers, jeans and t-shirt, some kind of a bandana or badge or specific hat or so has to be listed as their "uniform". None of the above listed had
ever been present in 99% of all terrorist acts.
