Yes, I've noticed that over at DU. I really think that DU has a significant number of overseas contributors whose function is to keep the socialist/communist leaning Americans in a state of turmoil, trying to foment a revolution from within.
I agree. From what I"ve read on that site there a quite a few from those countries and know they have found a bunch of gullible miserable people to brainwash.
Actually that is a fact! If you go on the web and look at the war in the Balkans you will se many "fake" NATO web sites that are actually Serb run. They are intended as "Psychological operations" against the NATO states waging war.
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=serbia+nato if you search youll actually find fake NATO sites that even look like the real deal.
In Iraq 2003 France actually conducted planned and targeted Psyop against the US. Realize that France did NOT ratify the NATO definition of Psyop and hence the AJP does not apply.
China has several BATTALIONS worth of people who's sole purpose is to play on the World Wide Web and conduct Psyop.
Yes, the WWW is full of wolves in sheeps skin. Anonymous they can easily exploit this media without being recognized for what they are. Some will say we too have Psyop, and this is true, but our Psyop is not black Psyop where the source is hidden.
Some in the US are worried about explicit content and having their kids exposed to this. Few are worried about deliberate state sponsored Psychological Operations which are intended to change perceptions and attitudes. While we all engage in this personally even here in the FR, we are no state sponsored agents with an agenda and unified plan. Its no real secret who we are and what our motives are. That is not the case with the Serb propaganda that was generated years ago and is still floating out there.
