This editorial piece on the Philosophy of Guerrilla Warfare was submitted by ‘Phantom’, a usCrow.org Elite Member. In this piece Phantom discusses an often overlooked element of insurgency, getting support from the citizenry before the killing starts.
In a hypothetical situation, you have an occupying force in your AO (area of operations). The occupying force has set roadblocks, CPs (check points), patrols and warrantless home searches. Clearly, every bone in your body is telling you to strap on your kit and start killing the enemy, but unless there is Direct Action Raids against gun owners, constitutionalists, ethnic groups, or religious groups taking place, you have to wait to sew dissent among the citizenry. This, I believe is the most overlooked tactic in resistance; gaining popular support for the insurgency, and getting more resisters!
So how do we sway minds of the occupied sheep to hate to hate and resist their occupiers? That is the question I will not attempt to address.
PSYOPS Phase I
You stand by your window watching the daily patrol walk down your street enforcing the new regime’s curfew declared by the occupying forces chain of command. Sit down, grab a pen, and three dozen sheets of paper – you have a lot of writing to do. What you are about to do is write several letters, making true or false accusations of abuse at the hands of the occupiers. In your letters you will mention that you will not give your name because you fear retaliation. You will then conjure up a story of extreme abuse against the occupiers with the goal of making the story absolutely horrifying. Note: It has been proven time and time again, where there is an occupying force there will be abuse, and injustice. The likelihood of you having to make up a story is slim, but possible and necessary. The first letter should be written in cursive with a red pen. Under no circumstances should you keep any of these letters after delivery. Additionally, you will want to use different types of paper for each letter.
After writing your account of the abuse and injustices you were subjected to you make several copies (around a hundred or so). You then give these letters to one recipient you trust (who is also a resister) to hand out to your neighbors, warning them of the atrocity and not to trust the occupiers. You will outline where the ‘delivery man’ is to discretely slip these letters under the doors of your neighbors, with the goal of ten houses every block or so under the cover of night.
You will then wait several days; with a black pen you will write another letter in upper caps/lower caps format. It is incredibly hard to distinguish similarities between cursive and caps script. In this letter you will assume the identity of another person who has suffered injustices and abuse at the hands of the occupying force, stepping up the extreme nature of the raid. You will then instruct your delivery man to deliver these letters to houses he hasn’t gotten to yet. The goal here is to stir up as much resentment, and distrust among the citizenry against the occupiers creating that initial spark of resistance.
Now you will need to kick things up a notch. This time you will use your gun, but not for what you think. Wearing all black, and under the cover of night you will take your weapon to a relatively safe and secure location, while staying within earshot of the community, and rapidly fire half your magazine or so with the goal having the community hear the shots. Once you make it home safe you will fabricate another letter, and in this letter you will illustrate the murder of a civilian by the occupying force with the goal of making the murder sound horrifying as hell. With this third act the citizenry will learn the occupying force truly can’t be trusted.
If you think PSYOPS like this aren’t needed, watch this video and think twice.
PSYOPS Phase II
After sowing the seeds of dissent you can then begin Phase II. Under the cover of night you will begin spray painting pro resistance images (maybe of a crow) and phrases on buildings, freeways, road signs, and etc. Even if you are an army of one you will need to make it seem like you are many, to be followed by your first guerrilla warfare operation. You will want to attack a small five man fire team on patrol, convoy supply, CP, or another ‘soft target’ making sure you spray paint your pro resistance slogan before you jam out. The message itself should urge others to take action, and to stand against the occupying force.
With these small and low risk actions you’ve planted the seeds of rebellion. The next time we talk we’ll review the details of guerrilla warfare fire teams; directives, training, and conduct. This is my first time writing for usCrow.org and I’d like any constructive critiques you have to offer, including any helpful tips that can help us all out when war meets our sovereign soil.
Note from the Administrator: We appreciate Phantom’s input, and look forward to more of his writings to come. To some of you this article may seem unethical to ‘lie‘ about the occupiers, but any occupying force on our sovereign soil is an enemy of The People, and as the old adage ‘If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck!’. Be sure to check out the Elite Database with hundreds of PSYOPS and Guerrilla Warfare Manuals.
