Meet The British Army’s 77th Battalion: Mobilizing 1,500 “Facebook Warriors” To Spread Disinformation

The British Army will revive one of the most contentious special forces units of the second world war, the Chindits, as a new generation of “Facebook” warriors who will wage complex and covert information and subversion campaigns.

– From the recent FT article: Army Revives Chindits as ‘Facebook Warriors’ for Smart Battle

Get ready, social media is about to get far more treacherous than it already is. Be extra careful jumping to conclusions, always think for yourself and use your best judgement. Government psy ops are about to go into overdrive.

Gizmodo reported the following:

A new group of soldiers, referred to as “Facebook Warriors” will ” wage complex and covert information and subversion campaigns,” according to the Financial Times.This unit will be named the 77th battalion, whose number also has a historical significance. FT says:

“The original Chindits [77th battalion] were a guerrilla unit led by the swashbuckling British commander Major General Orde Wingate, one of the pioneers of modern unconventional warfare. They operated deep behind Japanese lines in Burma between 1942 and 1945 and their missions were often of questionable success.

These Facebook warriors will be using similar atypical tactics, through non-violent means, to fight their adversary. This will mainly be achieved through “reflexive control,” an old Soviet tactic of spreading specifically curated information in order to get your opponent to react in the exact way you want them to. It’s a pretty tricky trick, and the British army will be doing just that with 1,500-person (or more) troop using Twitter and Facebook as a means to spread disinformation, real war truths, and “false flag” incidents as well as just general intelligence gathering.

The 77th battalion will reportedly begin operations in April.

    War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses.

    Propaganda an example

    Try a search on the Library of Congress digital newspapers, the years 1867-1920 . Search for the words “6,000,000 Jews” and 138 interesting results pop up with very fascinating information.

    Soldiers, British soldiers are meant to defend the realm in times of war and crisis. But we’re not at war. This 77th battalion is engaged to conduct psychological warfare on the British Public on behalf of the State. Is that even lawful?

    It seems the powers that be have defined the enemy – the enemy is you and me. NPOIU officers have slept with peaceful protesters; infiltrated groups exercising no more than freedom if speech; covered up the Hillsborough disaster with a conspiracy of lies; attempted to discredit Steven Lawrence’s family; convered up organised child abuse and a Westminster paedophile ring. We, the people are not the enemy, yet the State is deploying 1,500 soldiers to undermine democracy and freedom of speech by organised hijacking of emails, blogs and social media to discredit those who wish to demur from establishment policies. Now that is an act of war on the British people.

    We’ve got enough Hasbara shills without Brit disinfo merchants thrown in as well.

    Who’s gonna fall for the BS they will spout anyway?

    Rule 1:

    Avoid Faceboak

    It’s not the BS they spout that worries me Freeborn. As a critic of Rutland Councils local politicians and police hijacked my email account and left very tasteless messages on other people’s blogs. I complained to the police and Inspector Monks investigated. Ha. He’d been photographed leaving the local library having been sharing a private computer carel with a local councillor. Realising how vulnerable critics of the council were I secretly cancelled my access to library computers. Then I was told police had sufficient evidence to arrest me on posts made on library computers. I pointed out I’d cancelled my access to computers in the library. Clearly my email account and blog had been hacked. Having failed stitch me up the Police ceased investigating the case. If the 77th battalion are just making posts then we have little to worry about. But an opposition councillor found his Facebook acct hacked and child porn put on it. That’s what the game plan is – to silence critics of local and national government by hacking their social media accts and bringing them into disrepute. It’s very difficult to prove one’s innocence in the face of organised hacking on the part of the establishment. It’s been suggested that the security services plotted to fake a video of senior al Qaeda members discussing paedophile escapades – until the security services this would not bring al Qaeda into disrepute. They’re now trying that trick on us – the ordinary British people

    That’s a chilling story Helen, over the past few years the authorities have started getting serious about the world of electronic media and communication. The Israli government has employed people for years to go online and ad comments to online news stories critical of Israels policies so no doubt this 77th battalion will operate in a similar way as needs be.
    Your computer can be operated remotely by someone as if they were sitting right there in front of it, people with hacking skills can download anything to your hard drive and hide it without you knowing ready for later use as incriminating evidence or blackmail.
    It seemed like a determined effort to make everyone to get themselves a facebook account for example. I used to hear BBC newsbeat which is aimed at the youth, telling them to find out more at the BBC’s facebook page, and I would wonder why a massive information agency such as the beeb would want to encourage people to use this other resource. Perhaps the hacking aspect is going to lead to calls for a secure electronic ID system to ‘protect us’ from such troubles. I have often also thought about how the plan mentioned in Aaron Russos filmAmerica: From Freedom to Fascism to have a chip implanted in everyone with their money and ID on it is coming into focus, with ‘pay by mobile’ a step on this road. We maybe should keep online writings to a minimum and accept no privacy, meet face to face and organise the old fashioned way – in person.

    Thanks Nick – the point is if it can happen to me it can happen to anyone. I haven’t posted a blog on either or since I realised what was happening in 2011. So freedom of expression is now a no no. These people are usually ex-military, they are often freemasons or buffaloes, Stay Behind or members of livery companies – any sort of men’s club where they gather like cowardly hyenas to exult in their power to destroy people’s lives. There is also the Priory Clinic in Roehampton – no real proof but something very smelly was going on there when I had to rescue my ex-husband from their clutches. Survivors of Nazi Germany seem to be observing many similarities between what is happening in England now and what happened in the run up to the second world war. We do indeed live in dangerous times and, given all that we have been allowed to hear, things are not going to get any better. I met a member of the intelligence services the other day and commented on how out of control our police are – from the reply I received even the intelligence services are worried about aspects of our corrupt police. However no one wants to seize the nettle and deal with it all and none of the three political parties have the will or power to change the fifth column that currently seeks to undermine our democracy and deliver us into the hands of a totalitarian state. Some of our politicians are fully signed up to the despotic charter, some are not. All are vetted by our security services before they are allowed to sgtand for Parliament. From the IPT ruling on illegal data gathering we now know that GCHQ are gathering 100% of our data on 100% of the people – even the Stasi only gathered data on 25% of the population.
