Unannounced Psych Warfare - Designed To Condition You?

For many years now the US Army has been performing unannounced 'anti-terror' drills at locations all over the United States. Calling these staged events 'anti-terror' is complete hypocrisy because all they serve to do is inject a high dose of fear into an already frightened general public.

The latest example occurred a couple of days ago in West Kentucky, although in this case the campus had been warned in advance...

Shooter terrorizes campus during mock drill

Wednesday morning was a quiet one on the campus of West Kentucky Community and Technical College. But shortly after 10 a.m., the silence was shattered by gunshots.

Student Jackson Ervin was an eyewitness.

"The first two rounds were louder than the other ones and it scared me."

That is exactly the reaction Paducah Police Captain Brandon Barnhill was looking for. This was not an isolated incident. It was a mock drill, set up two months in advance at the request of the college. - (Source)

Although this incident could be written off as an innocent and possibly necessary training exercise some of these staged events aren't so innocent...

Fake Robbery Prompts Real Lawsuit

A New Jersey pharmacy technician who says she was traumatized when a masked gunman burst into her store demanding OxyContin is suing her employers for arranging the mock holdup.

Babette Perry says in a lawsuit that she was not told in advance of the training drill in December 2007 at the Hampton Behavioral Health Center.

She says she was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder after the gunman entered the store, claiming he had taken another worker hostage. She says she tried to call for help, but the phone wasn't working.

She later found out the gun was a fake, and the gunman worked for the company. - (Source)

What we are seeing here is the act of obscuring reality and fantasy, an aspect of psychological warfare. Another offshoot of this is the increasing number of staged, unannounced helicopter assaults....

Helicopter assault startles East St. Louis

Special Forces urban warfare drill unannounced to public

Residents of East St. Louis, Ill., are upset that federal, state and local officials failed to inform them of an Army Special Forces helicopter assault drill, especially in the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Nine helicopters were involved in the training. "Scared" locals reportedly saw the aircraft "hovering and darting around homes and buildings." - (Source)

Dont worry - Portland is not under attack

Low flying military helicopters buzzing downtown Portland looked like a scene out of a movie. Monday night’s drama was all part of a military exercise. Newschannel8 has learned, the Army and Navy are conducting Urban Military Training in Portland and Salem from August 17-30.

Monday’s exercise involved helicopters hopping from one downtown skyscraper to another. Many residents and downtown workers were concerned by the low flying helicopters. The Department of Defense provided no advance warning of the exercise. - (Source)

Homeland Traitors Run Unannounced Marshal Law Drills in Denver

The city of Denver, Colorado was recently invaded by a large number of military helicopters without any sort of warning given to the general public.

They are selling this exercise as an anti-terror drill, but in reality it has nothing to do with stopping terrorism. The terror war has been proven to be a fraud time and time again so it certainly isn’t about fighting the terrorists. As painful as it is to say, the true purpose of the federal government flying military helicopters around Denver without any sort of notification to the public is part of a plan to socially engineer people to the reality of a militarized police state. - (Source)

So, are these staged and unannounced drills part of a plan to psychologically effect the general public? A way to sell the war on terror to them as a necessary plan of action, reminding them that the next terrorist attack could be a second away?

And are these unannounced helicopter assaults actually socially engineering the masses to accept a militarised police state?

Well, Alex Jones seems to think so...

...and as I see more and more of these events in the news I have begun to question whether they are indeed a PSYOP upon the American people.

I used to think stuff like this was rubbish.

But I'm becoming more inclined to believe it's all to just create fear in the population.

They need an all powerful enemy, who could be anywhere and everywhere and could strike at anytime.

They lost that with the Soviet Union, but this terrorist threat is far better for their purposes.

It's just the terrorist threat has been exaggerated to a huge extent.

Without this boogeyman threat people wouldn't have supported Afghanistan or even Iraq.

They really learnt their lessons from Vietnam. You can't go to war without the support of the people.

Fear campaigns become even more important when, like in this case, the enemy is invisible. 9/11 was enough justification for them to invade Iraq/Afghanistan but after years of relative peace on home soil people start asking questions.

'Who are we fighting?'

And so to serve as a sobering reminder of just what we are fighting, the public are subjected to bouts of self inflicted terrorism so as to heighten their fear. Not to mention the possibility of normalising people to the presence of military, slowly but surely increasing their presence.

Fear induces a hypnotic state

To hypnotize someone, you must direct their attention upon one thing... and keep it there for a bit...
Fear itself does that plus it adds strong emotion - which is another factor that induces hypnoid states
Google 'Beckterev', and 'George Estabrooks' or Dr.Joost Meerloo

Fear keeps the deer looking into your headlights as you run it down.....


PS: Hypnotized people can not say NO...

I agree, fear is a powerful tool; a weapon even.

Human rights lawyer Helena Kennedy feels that fear is being used as a weapon to break down civil liberties.

"There is a general feeling that in creating a climate of fear people have been writing a blank cheque to government. People feel the fear of terrorism is being used to take away a lot of rights."

One only has to look at the amount of freedoms we have willingly given away - all in the battle against terror. Or should I say fear?
