Psychological Operations (United States)
Psychological operations (PSYOP) or, as it has been known since 2010, Military Information Support Operations (MISO) are planned operations to convey selected information and indicators to audiences to influence their emotions, motives, objective reasoning, and ultimately the behavior of governments, organizations, groups, and individuals.
The purpose of United States psychological operations is to induce or reinforce behavior favorable to US objectives. They are an important part of the range of diplomatic, informational, military, and economic activities available to the US. They can be utilized during both peacetime and conflict.Or alternatively, why are Bibi and Obama playing a game of Good Cop/Bad Cop?
No, tell me you didn't buy into this headline: "BIBI TELLS WHITE HOUSE: 'NEVER SECOND GUESS ME AGAIN'"
What? You thought the Prime Minister finally grew a backbone overnight? Not when you see that the one alongside it says something like "PM Netanyahu Doesn’t Want to Get Stuck in Gaza" and "IDF withdraws majority of ground forces from Gaza."
Sirens are still ringing. Terrorists are still infiltrating and attacking civilians. New tunnels are still being discovered. So what is really going on here? Well, I've been trying to figure that out for a few weeks now, but I may have finally stumbled onto something. You be the judge.
If we use the clues that the autistic kids have given us...
- That the visible leadership, i.e. PMs and Presidents work to fulfill the goals of a higher globalist agenda
- That everything else, especially if it appears to manipulate public opinion, is part of a "show"
- That the current overriding goal is take possession of Jerusalem and make it into an international city, as was their stated goal back in 1967, probably governed by the Vatican
And if we take into consideration the statements made by those in our own government whom we know to be working outright for the globalist agenda...
Shimon Peres: "In diplomacy, there is one rule: legitimacy. Gaza belongs to Mahmoud Abbas, he is the only one with legitimate authority, and the agreement was signed with him. Gaza was stolen from him. The best thing to do is return it to him. He has proven that he knows how to lead, and he can save Gaza, with the help of Egypt and the Arab world."
Tzipi Livni: "We need change in Gaza. It could be through international agreements which discuss demilitarization and the return of (Palestinian leader) Abu Mazen to the Strip."
HAARETZ: Maybe after the war, Israel will move toward peace
...Livni believes that, along with the unilateral conclusion of military activity, the diplomatic activity should be multilateral. The United States, Egypt, the PA, the United Nations and the major European countries must be sitting around the pot when the process is cooked up. But not Hamas. After all the participants agree on the principles of the process, the plan can be turned into a binding UN Security Council decision. That would be a diplomatic achievement that would serve the interests of Egypt and the PA.
...The hottest name in the cabinet discussions in recent weeks was that of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. Netanyahu, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon and Communications Minister Gilad Erdan, who in the past year described him as not being a partner for peace, are suddenly pointing to him as a major partner in any agreement in Gaza. And the Palestinian reconciliation government, which until recently was described in Jerusalem as a terror government, has become a body with which Israel wants to cooperate.
Netanyahu and many in his government came to their senses during the war in Gaza. They now have a profound understanding of the difference between Abbas and Hamas. Saturday night, Netanyahu said that when the battles are over, new diplomatic options will be open to Israel.
This may be the first sign that, after the war, Netanyahu will turn to peace – and this time with greater determination and seriousness.You see, the Israeli public did not respond as desired to the carrot (Kerry's 9-month Peace Initiative), so we were rewarded with the stick (The Kidnapping, Subsequent Missile War and Tunnel Scare). Quite a production!
And there's no doubt that this demonstration was not just for our sakes, but for Abbas' and his people's as well. (See How the Israel-Palestine Peace Process Collapsed)
Everybody got carried away and thought they were real leaders of real sovereign nations. Everyone needed this slap-in-the-face wake-up call. We've all been roughed up by a bunch of gangsters!
Mark my words, this will end with another not-so-subtle push in the direction of "The Two-State Solution," (with the internationalization of Jerusalem) unless Hashem intervenes on our behalf. The only real wild card here is the Islamic Fundamentalists. Eisav thinks he can control them, but I'm not so sure...
Anyway, all my personal opinion. Take it or leave it.
A separate question: Why is the international press promoting The Times of Israel by referring to it so often? If they like it as a source, there has to be somethtng wrong with it from my perspective.
