Rifle Squads

“You may fly over a land forever, you may bomb it, atomize it, pulverize it clean of life-but if you desire to defend it, and keep it for civilization, you must do this on the ground, the way the Roman Legions did, by putting your young men in the mud!” (T.R. Fehrenbach. This kind of War, 1963)

Grunts: Military slang for Infantrymen. Infantrymen grunt a lot from physical exertion – hence the designation “GRUNT”.

Warfare 1. The waging of war; armed conflict. 2. Conflict of any kind; struggle, strife or warfare – noun. 1. The process of military struggle between two nations or groups of nations; war. 2. Armed conflict between two massed enemies, armies or the like. 3. Conflict, especially when vicious and unrelenting, between, political rivals etc. Many people in America delight in insulting, criticizing, demeaning, degrading and in engaging in anti-military and anti-American behavior on a continuing basis.

People and organizations in America [and in other countries] that delight in demeaning Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Airmen and CoastGuardsmen include:

The clownish organization Code Pink – blocks entrances to Marine Recruiting Stations with the approval of local units of government. Vietnam Veterans Against the War writes on their website: “VVAW respects … service members who … refused deployment. We hope … to bring a … end to this shameful chapter of our history. United for Peace & Justice posts ‘Ask Congress TODAY to Cut Military Budget”. A “Peace Solider project” is being touted by whynotpeace!” “No governments no war” is promoted on the website. Another website claims Women United for Peace, Feminists and Other Activists Against War, and NOW’s Progressive Feminist Addenda for Peace and many other women’s peace organization have an answer for prevention of warfare.

Not once since the anti-Military days of Vietnam era left wing protests has one word of support been said of the line Soldier or Marine regarding – providing them with the weapons, personnel and national commitment to allow them to conquer the enemy and end the horror. Many of the wounded from America’s current wars has told me: “If you do not support our mission, you do not support us!” I share this view. Talk is so very cheap.

Warfare breaks down to men in rifle squads. * “The mission of the Marine Rifle Squad is to locate, close with, and destroy the enemy by fire and maneuver, or to repel the enemy’s assault by fire and close combat.” Marines kill the enemy by shooting them with machine guns, rifles, shotguns and semi-automatic pistols, blowing the apart with hand grenades, 40mm tube launched grenades, stabbing them to death with K-Bars, Fairbarins and bayonets, rocks, fists, ammo cans, belts, any item can be converted to a weapon than can bludgeon a man to death or strangle him! Indirect weapons systems including mortars, artillery and naval gunfire are used to mass large-scale explosives in mass against the enemy. Fixed and rotary winged tactical and strategic aircraft provide additional killing power to the rifle squad. The same holds true for United States Army Infantry Squads.

Rifle squads exist to project national policy. Each squad has two or three fire teams in it. There are between three or four squads in a rifle company. An infantry battalion has three (sometimes four)-rifle companies in it. * There are three infantry battalions in a regiment or brigade. An infantry division may have three (or four) brigades within its command. A crop contains two divisions and the system moves up to theater and army level in terms of organization. The essential element is the fire team/rifle squad. Warfare breaks-down to young men killing other young men and being killed by them. The conditions where the killing occurs is often filthy, uncomfortable, hot, freezing, rainy, snowing, windy, hurricane force winds, calm winds under any condition of possible weather extreme or terrain (geographic feature, i.e. hills, mountains, triple canopy tropical rain forest etc.)

The whole affair has been going on since people have been on the earth. It is not going to end. There are very well intended, legitimate, well-organized and competent entities that promote peace and pursue peace. They must not be confused with RABID anti-American and anti-Military characters. The characters abound in our free society and must, of course be tolerated. The First Amendment is theirs too. What the well-intentioned peace advocates (and the characters) does not understand is the rifle squad functions as individuals with a massive military structure. This structure has values that separate it from the civilians’ world. Our country’s military structure includes missions. I quoted the squads’ mission above. Service missions or tasks include:

United States Marine Corp:
“Since 1775 the United States Marine Corp has been doing two things. Making Marines and wining battles.” Mission specific focus includes: “shall, at any time, be liable to do duty in the forts and garrisons of the United States, on the seacoast, or any other duty on shore, as the President, at his discretion, shall direct.”

United States Army:
“…The Army is Soldiers. No matte how much the tools of warfare improve, it is Soldiers who use them to accomplish their mission. [The] Army organizes, equips, and trains forces for the conduct of prompt and sustained combat operations on land.” Further: “The Army’s primary mission is to provide necessary forces and capabilities to the combatant Commanders in support of the National Security and Defense Strategies.”

United States Navy
“The mission of the Navy is to maintain, train and equip combat-ready Naval forces capable of winning wars, deterring aggression and maintaining freedom of the seas.”

United States Air Force
The mission of the United States Air Force is to fly, fight and win … in air, space and cyberspace.”

United States Coast Guard
The U.S. Coast Guard mission is to protect the public, the environment, and U.S. economic interests – in the Nation’s ports and waterways, along the coast, on international waters, or in any maritime region as required to support national security.

Men with rifles implement national policy. Men that move forward no matter what is in front of them. They do not blindly charge fixed enemy positions. Nor are they fanatics. They are very competent, dedicated and decent men these Infantrymen who we owe so much to.

Remember them. The Mud Marine and the Line Grunt – they are the best our country has. They’ve never let us down, nor will they. March in parades chanting “Down with…” or “Out of…” or “Peace now…” or “We hate…?” Sometimes the Grunts react. Most of the time they really don’t care. They simply want to complete their duty at go home.

Peace, yes. My best wishes for success to peacemakers. I wish you every good thing in your attempts to halt slaughter. If your efforts fail and civilians decide on war – get out of the way and let it be concluded, quickly. Less suffering will occur and the Military can begin to get ready for the next war. Civilians will – I am very confident always find another war for us to fight. Good for promotion however. Nothing like combat experience and command to climb the promotion ladder.

“Hostile newspapers are more feared than a thousand bayonets!” (Napoleon –

Remember the words of the wounded at Walter Reed: “If you don’t support our mission – you don’t support us.” (source withheld)

Take care all.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
