77 Brigade used to quash rumours and disinformation..

Of course: Resolution 1815 of the Council of Europe..... The general thread is its theoretical and i suppose its less were going to catch fire, or covid, but more the long term effects as the masts will be clustered closer together, i'm sure body scanners in airports are safe, but would you want one in your living room.
That has nothing to do with “millimetre waves” or 5G other than that they come under the general term of electromagnetic fields. It was issued almost a decade ago, and since then there have many studies showing that, for example, the emissions from power lines have no measurable effect on human health - neither directly measurable, nor statistically following long term studies.

I concur. I had a look through Resolution 1815 and the main thrust appears to be that when giving consideration to frequency the voltage should be as low as possible and that if there are dissenting voices (scientists) the they should be heard and protected. Equally, lobbying groups should have to argue their case.

This is all against a back drop of zero evidence whatsoever for 5G being harmful to humans, animals or insects.

I’m struggling to see where people’s fears have sprung from. Anyway, this is off topic so I’m going to shut up about it now.

I would suggest that there are some serious structural issues there, combined with some blatant empire building.
I think the intent is sound. The construct and delivery maybe not so sound but IA&O is an area that MoD professes to take seriously and yet can't quite bring itself to fully embrace nor fund non-kinetic activity or link into a tangible xgov construct. Meanwhile our adversaries play in the grey zone almost at will.
 
Isn't this the lot of media-savvy longhairs who evicted the RE Survey from Hermitage? Top-heavy with Reserve, in which case it will only get busy at weekends.

Nowt new here. Rupert Smith proposed the capability in 1994. Pre interweb even.

The greatest CDS we never had.

There's an excellent book by Ken Connor called "Ghost Force" which outlines this at the end of the book. I'd have to dig it out again but he predicts that the wars of the future will be reliant on soldiers that might not do much or any soldiering. Rest of its a cracking read, too.
 
Conspiracy exists and have always existed. The theory that nero burned rome is probably fake news and conspiracy. It flows from a lack of trust in government and that licences the crackpots and as you say the players.

Then again, a psychologist, would probably argue that trying to quash a crackpot theory only feeds the paranoia. What would be better is restoring faith in democracy and government, that takes the air out of the players and the crackpots fade away.

For many conspiracy theorists you won't be able to restore their faith in democracy and the government since many hard wired to be CTers. To them, the government, anyone in authority, Bill Gates, NASA, etc., etc., are the elites and rule the world by hidden means.

By all means let harmless crackpot conspiracies do the rounds.

But are you suggesting that if foreign agents and governments are planting false stories and rumours, spreading dissent, conspiracies etc., that nothing should be done about it?
 
Apparently they are cyber experts*, though mainly recruited from 3rd rate universities which specialise in feminist and media studies.




So the British Army, which is always moaning about a lack of funding, operates a troll factory. And that troll factory is officially being used against the population of the UK? Presumably these are the same trolls who came up with the XRW campaign / dob your mates in to receive promotion.

A quick look at their website raises quite a few questions..


Cultural and linguistic advice presumably means they advised on the "Army needs snowflakes" recruitment campaign. Can't say I ever heard of the Stasi or Gestapo getting anything quite as wrong as that. The Scottish cybernats seem to be convinced that the 77th Media Mastodons was deployed en masse against them.

  • Web Ops Team. The Web Ops Team collects information and understands audience sentiment in the virtual domain. Within the extant OSINT policy framework, they may engage with audiences in order to influence perceptions to support operational outcomes.
  • Production Team. The Production Team design and create video, audio, print and digital products that aim to influence behaviours for both the Army and external audience. Additionally, they advise on campaign strategy and propose innovative behavioural change methods


Seems they can't spell propaganda..

WHAT WE FOCUS ON
  • Women Peace and Security (WPS) in conflict
  • Protection of Civilians (POC)
  • Children and Armed Conflict (CAAC)
  • Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking (MSHT)
  • Integrity and Anti-Corruption (IAC)

The first is to be expected of blue haired mastodons with cankles and 17 cats and no prospect whatsoever of ever breeding due to their personalities... I find the integrity and anti-corruption the most chilling. Almost as though this elite brigade of feminists, cucks and soyboys have a gun to the head of anyone who dares question their deranged ideology. Given the worryingly extreme lack of morals and standards displayed by most feminists, whether male or female, putting them in charge of integrity must be a bit like putting Tony Blair ( the ultimate cuck feminist or did Bercow upstage him?) in charge of the Middle East peace process.

"The Staff Corps consists of around 100 Group B reservist officers who operate at predominantly chief executive, director, and senior technical or operation manager level in large commercial enterprises or organisations.... Technical Communications, Corporate, Stratcoms, Advertising, Marketing, Digital Commerce, Banking and Academia among others."

So any ivory tower cuck or weirdo who can't hold their own in online debate can now be paid to call their publically funded trolls in?


Does anyone who isn't a sock puppet of the 77th ( @RoyalGreenJacket ) think that taxpayers money should be used to fund this? I've seen these troll factories develop in the civil service, informally at first with the director merely mentioning that their latest pronoucement will be tweeted later should anyone like to comment. Not that it might help your promotion prospects if you do of course. All the way to organised pile ons which clearly emanate from CS offices for journalists who dare criticise some aspect of policy or competence.

This however is some hardcore dystopian bastardry, the Army being used against the people and freedoms it is supposed to protect, trying to prevent the free speech which is the cornerstone of our civilisation.

More to the point the Army must truly be awash with money to dedicate any resources whatsoever to this abject nonsense. The Ministry of Demoralisation really has made Orwell proud, could we instead work to make him mere fiction again?


* Who had their twitter account hacked, amusingly.

That's my point, we've been talking about doing this for a long time. Integrated Full Spectrum effects but we get seduced by bang and whoosh.

77X is a good step in the right direction but it's not the final answer.
 
I think people spend far too much time connected, as it is.
Millimeter radiation.

P.S I am working from home, so this is a break to come on here and vent my spleen.
Your spleen is well vented, virtually shouting at clouds.

Don't say ever. All it might take is for one high profile incident and a lot would go into the public domain. Or a change of government down the line.

Key phrases like "hybrid warfare" (or whatever the flavour of the month is) won't cut it when someone in a senior civilian government capacity asks why, exactly, Army personnel have been used in this way. I'm not saying it's going to happen or that the whole things a bad idea, but in my view it gets a bit too close to things that shouldn't be an Army tasking on the UK mainland.

In short, is there anything they bring to the table that any number of other groups don't? If so, does that thing outweigh the political risk? Of course, someone much smarter (and better paid, and more respectable, and other things) than me has decided that it does. But it does smell a bit. This isn't like using SAS troopers to assist in police counter terrorism operations. It's a lot fuzzier by its very nature and if handled poorly it could trash the Army's reputation.
The army is a small subset of WofG cyber activity.
