Sociologist, Intelligence Collection and Analysis Methodologist
Alexander Solzhenitsyn, survivor of the Russian Gulag, had many profound insights from his experience that will help us understand the foundation death squads and torture squads are built upon:
“To do evil a human being must first of all believe that what he’s doing is good, or else that it’s a well-considered act in conformity with natural law. Fortunately, it is in the nature of the human being to seek justification for his actions.
Macbeth’s self-justifications were feeble – and his conscience devoured him. Yes, even Iago was a little lamb too. The imagination and the spiritual strength of Shakespeare’s evildoers stopped short at a dozen corpses. Because they had no ideology.
Ideology – that is what gives evildoing its long-sought justification and gives the evildoer the necessary steadfastness and determination. That is the social theory which helps to make his acts seem good instead of bad in his own and other’s eyes, so that he won’t hear reproaches and curses but will receive praise and honors. That was how the agents of the Inquisition fortified their wills: by invoking Christianity; the conquerors of foreign lands, by extolling the grandeur of their Motherland; the colonizers, by civilization; the Nazis by race; and the Jacobins (early and late), by equality, brotherhood, and the happiness of future generations.
Thanks to ideology, the twentieth century was fated to experience evildoing on a scale calculated in the millions. This cannot be denied, nor passed over, nor suppressed. How, then, do we dare insist that evildoers do not exist? And who was it that destroyed these millions? Without evildoers there would have been no Archipelago.”
Mass Grave Forensics
Including information about mass graves left behind by previous death squads in other nations is important because the significance of the reported stockpiling of plastic coffins and body bags has been missed. The plastic coffins and body bags are most likely for the worst case scenario number of their casualties projected from the effort to kill a couple of hundred million Americans and a few additional billions around the world deemed ”useless eaters” or some other label connoting collective inferiority. Since the main purpose of using death squads is to make the executed all vanish, the inferior dead will be interred in unmarked mass graves, probably with industrial solvents to expedite the breakdown of human flesh and bones. Enterprising investigative reporters should search government purchases for unusually large orders of human flesh dissolving chemicals to pair with the massive purchases of ammunition.
If you are confused about who has been targeted, that means you, the one who has not been given the location map and pass code to find and enter the giant underground safety bunker while all the killing is going on.
The self-appointed elites behind the death squads will not want future generations getting curious about why there are entire cemeteries filled with tombstones indicating millions of Americans and billions of people worldwide all died in the same year. If your name is on a .40 caliber problem solving recipient list, it is doubtful you will be using a body bag or plastic coffin.
Mass grave forensic statistics do not include the average number of bullets used per execution victim. This lack of useful information may explain why the death squad elements in the United States Government continue to order more ammunition. They are not certain how many rounds per person it will take to execute everyone they intend to make disappear.
One additional noteworthy pattern is that people in mass graves who were not restrained in some manner were shot in the hips or feet to keep them from running.
Identify Torture and Death Squads by Their Recruitment and Training
1. Screening of death and torture squad members is based upon physical strength and animosity toward specific political, religious or other beliefs, ethnic groups or other social distinctions (depending upon the population targeted for torture or mass execution).
2. They are offered the distinction of being drafted or recruited into “elite” units that require them to torture or execute prisoners or “detainees.”
3. They must demonstrate the ability to never discuss what the torture or execution squad does.
4. Loyalty is also tested by requiring them to snitch on other torture or death squad members who do not follow rules or orders.
5. They must demonstrate aggression toward targeted groups, individuals, and detainees.
6. They follow orders without question.
7. Training involves treatment that binds squad members to command authority:
(a) Trainees are physically and psychologically abused while being told how fortunate they are to be members of the unit (physical and psychological abuse of torture squad members will include the tortures they will be expected to apply to torture victims);
(b) They are kept in a constant state of fatigue and prevented from relieving themselves for long periods of time to keep them from thinking clearly;
(c) Trainees are required to swear allegiance to some physical symbol of unit or government authority;
(d) Trainees are told they will have protected special powers or authority over their fellow citizens;
(e) They are told their actions will never be questioned; (Anyone familiar with the trials of death and torture squad members in Argentina, Greece, and other places should know that is a falsehood. It may take years, but their crimes are documented and they are held accountable. In the case of the Greek military junta that held power from April 21, 1967 to July 23, 1974, the first torture related trials began in August 1975.)
(f) Trainees are told that if they show mercy to anyone ordered tortured or executed, they will take that person’s place;
(g) A special in-house language is used with code words and euphemisms for various types of torture, nicknames for victims to dehumanize them, nicknames for unit members to conceal identities, and classifying nonmembers as “outside world”;
(h) Frequent “training classes” are held depicting the target population as dangerous, criminal, conspirators, traitors, terrorists or other undesirable labels;
(I) Torturers are desensitized to pain and learn the torture techniques from the physical and psychological abuse incorporated into their training; and
(j) Successful torturers are given specific rewards for each confession or each desired piece of information obtained.
Adding It All Up
If you are wondering what kind of mind and reasoning produces death squads and torture squads, there are revealing quotes from administrations which actually created them.
Former Argentine Dictator Jorge Rafael Videla is quoted in a Daily Mail article by Leon Watson as providing the rationale for “disappearing” perceived enemies of the status quo:
‘In every war people are crippled, killed and disappeared, their whereabouts unknown, that is a fact,’ Videla said in an interview broadcast on local television.
‘Let’s say there were 7,000 or 8,000 people who needed to die to win the war against subversion,’ newspaper La Nacion quoted Videla as saying in a new book ‘Final Mandate,’ by journalist Ceferino Reato, based on a series of interviews with Videla.
‘There was no other solution,’ La Nacion reported Videla as saying. ‘We were agreed that was the price to win the war against subversion and that we needed it not to be evident so that society didn’t notice.’
‘For that reason, to avoid provoking protests inside and outside the country, it was decided that those people disappear. Each disappearance can certainly be understood as the cover-up of a death.’
To get some idea of the demeanor of former Dictator Videla discussing the actions of his administration, you may view a Spanish language video of the public confession.
For additional insight revelations, compare and contrast Videla with the statements, demeanor and conduct of Henry Kissinger, Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, Leon Panetta, Eric H. Holder, Jr, Janet Napolitano and President Barack Obama.
We also have an excellent example of these bizarre and evil mental processes from the Bush Administration, which established both torture and death squads, purportedly to operate abroad.
In the 2004 New York Times article “Faith, Certainty and the Presidency of George W. Bush,” Ron Suskind reported the following experience during “a meeting with a senior adviser to Bush” [subsequently purported to be Karl Rove]:
In the summer of 2002, after I had written an article in Esquire that the White House didn’t like about Bush’s former communications director, Karen Hughes, I had a meeting with a senior adviser to Bush. He expressed the White House’s displeasure, and then he told me something that at the time I didn’t fully comprehend — but which I now believe gets to the very heart of the Bush presidency.
The aide said that guys like me were ”in what we call the reality-based community,” which he defined as people who ”believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.” I nodded and murmured something about enlightenment principles and empiricism. He cut me off. ”That’s not the way the world really works anymore,” he continued. ”We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”
These “history’s actors,” and their fellow custom fabricated reality pimps and bimbos, are the individuals responsible for getting us to where we are today. A place historian Michael Wood compares to events and individuals responsible for the fall of the Roman Empire.
Despite expectations and pretensions to the contrary, you should note that the history of death squads indicates it is not strong governments that produce them, but weak, ineffective governments which cannot solve contemporary problems.
There are actually three types of death squads. In addition to the death squads acting under color of government authority described so far, there are two other types of death squads. There are vigilante death squads formed by “off duty” law enforcement or military, members of a political party or faction, members of a religion or religious faction, and ethnic or other self-identified groups with an ideology that justifies mass killing.
The last category of death squads is crime related. Drug cartels and street gangs both have death squads operating in the United States now. There are few, if any, actual random drive by shootings. These executions are gang death squad actions produced by their ideology. Consistent with the death squad training protocols, gang member trainees must “make their bones” (gang death squad jargon), demonstrate lack of mercy toward victims and demonstrate hostility toward the “outside world” by executing a stranger. A glimpse of the relevant street gang ideology can be seen in the statements made in a September 27, 2012 Chicago CBS affiliate Walter Jacobson interview of local gang members:
“There’s no solution to the violence,” one gang member tells him. “Killing, killing is the solution.”…
“Rob, steal and kill. That’s the only way. We didn’t grow up in Beverly Hills. We don’t get it handed to us,” he said.
“We ain’t living in Hyde Park,” added a third young man….
“The police hate us,” a young man said. “Every time they ride past us, they shoot us down and do all that. Do what you want to do, I don’t care about you all, keep riding. Who are you all? We’re not scare of you all. I’ll fight you too. Take that badge off.”
But he says the police cannot catch them or exact any consequences.
“I laugh at the police,” he said. “They’re a joke to me.”
There is another glaring example of death squad activity that has gone unrecognized. Regardless of whether you believe the Zionist Israelis, Illuminati, Al Qaeda, or International Bankers are responsible for 9/11, the act itself was carried out by a trained death squad. The ideologies attributed to each of these groups contain elements, such as the benefits of using false flag operations, which would justify to each of them the mass killings that occurred on 9/11.
Only One Way Out
Mass grave forensics and death squad murder prosecution evidence in other nations communicate a clear warning. If you allow yourself to be taken into custody by a death squad or torture squad, you will no longer have any control over how long you live, how you die, where you die, or how much pain and humiliation you will experience before you die. If taken, you can be absolutely certain you and all those you love taken with you will die by death squad or torture squad member hands.
Researching death squad information for this commentary, I found one thing missing from every nation on the planet, including nations who have lived through the terror and dealt with the aftermath of death squads formed by arrogant members of their own governments. No one anywhere has enacted laws to prevent the formation and operation of death squads or torture squads. No model legislation exists anywhere I looked.
The ugly reality here in the United States, right now, is that we face all three types of death squads as threats to our lives and liberty. As with other nations afflicted before us, elitist, arrogant individuals with access to United States Government authority are training and equipping death squads to eliminate those of us who do not meet their criteria for safe citizens. Foreign, criminal and vigilante death squads are already killing United States citizens or have killed citizens.
On an individual basis you have no chance of surviving or remaining unaffected in an environment with all three types of death squads operating, any of which may place your name or the name of a loved one on their final solution list. You cannot rely on the United States Government to protect you because individuals in positions of authority are training their own death squads and allow the death squads of nations they consider friendly to kill us, Israel and Chile being prime examples.
The minimum level of organized resources that will give you and your family some chance of staying out of death squad or torture squad hands is the State level. For that to happen, someone in your State Government must be given responsibility for protecting citizens from death squads. No problem gets solved until someone is made responsible for finding a solution. Knowing from my research that no law exists to accomplish this, I found that I could not just write and publish this warning. I was compelled to develop model legislation to establish a State Police Death Squad Monitoring Task Force with appropriate delineated responsibility and authority.
As best I can determine, this is the only practical way out of the current multiple death squad threat mess for all of us. The draft text of this Death Squad Prohibition Model Legislation is at the end of this article after the Bibliography. I hope it will begin to fill the void for a solution to the recurring death squad problem. With the enactment of effective antideath squad laws, death squads and torture squads will hopefully become the weak link in the criminal, elite and arrogant having their way with the rest of us.
For those not privy, a key lobbyist secret is knowledge that few, if any, legislators have the time and skills to draft effective legislation. The best way to get what you want out of any legislative body is to hand your legislator a draft bill that does exactly what you want. All the legislator then has to do is send or hand deliver the draft bill to the Legislature staff specialist who registers and turns the draft into the proper format to introduce as an actual Bill. Five thousand people calling their legislator demanding something be done about death squads will not be as effective as you printing off a copy of this Model Legislation and handing it to your State Representative and Senator. If you then add in five thousand people calling for something to be done, your chances for success will improve.
Remember that the Bill must be processed as emergency legislation to take effect immediately. A regular Bill enacted into law will not take effect for up to a year later. We do not have that much time before we will need effective protection.
You may also consider printing and sending this entire article and Model Legislation to your State Representative and Senator as your request. If the Legislator or his staff has time to read the article, it will provide some powerful context for the need to have a law.
If you live in a State which fails to enact antideath squad legislation to protect you or enacts weak, ineffective legislation, you should seriously examine moving to a State that has enacted strong, effective legislation that does provide protection to its citizens.
If anyone has specific suggestions for improving the power of this Model Legislation to prevent or hasten the shutting down of operating death squads or torture squads, please send them to [email protected] I will put a PDF file copy of this model legislation, and update with any effective improvements, on the Special Research Projects page of my websitewww.thesociologycenter.com.
