Dear all, I have taken a short break from my cosmic research these last couple of days - as I realized that my original post(OP) of this important thread had been "sabotaged" once again: all the linked images to the MilitaryTimes war memorial had disappeared, due to their URL's being changed (for the second time, since my OP back in March 2013). This forced me to patiently reconstruct the entire post, by recapturing these (new / currently-working) image URL's one by one. As I did so, I also found further "problems" with that memorial website - and decided to update my OP with these new findings. I have to say, in hindsight (and with what we now know regarding the capabilities of face-morphing softwares), that my OP - that I wrote more than six years ago - still stands the test of time. I honestly think that it's now high time to address and diffuse (over the internets) this vexing issue with renewed ardour and energy; I personally refuse to live on a planet where such blatant deception - as documented below - can endure and remain unnoticed by most people in this world for so many years.

ARE (many or most) MILITARY CASUALTIES SIMULATED?



Image

Ladies and gents,

We have seen how the alleged 9/11 victims were fictitious/simulated entities made up out of thin air - and entirely crafted in the digital domain with facial morphing softwares (today readily available to consumers) such as this. This discovery has led me to ask myself: so what about the US military casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan - and other war zones? Could they possibly also be - at least partly - simulated ? This will of course sound like an extreme, "unthinkable" supposition. Well, I have finally brought myself (to be sure, this takes some serious courage!) to take a deeper look into this issue - and have recently found a great resource to work with:

"HONOR THE FALLEN" http://thefallen.militarytimes.com/

Why in the world, you may ask, would Western war casualty figures be fudged /or inflated? Wouldn't that cause more outrage among the public - and generate even stronger opposition to these wars? No, that's not how it works, in my opinion. War propaganda is counter-intuitive, and the crucial notion that "our boys are fighting and dying for our freedoms and to protect our way of life" has to be upheld. To make these wars seem inevitable and necessary in most people's minds, it is essential that they perceive the peril of a dangerous and murderous enemy. The sacrifice - or perceived sacrifice - of our young soldiers, keeps our animal instincts for 'vendetta' at high pitch. Wars without ("Western") deaths would quickly fizzle out and make the public realize the truth: that these wars are nothing but rogue occupations of sovereign nations - for the benefit of our "Western way of life".

So, without further ado, I will hereby post a series of portraits of purported war casualties which can be found on that site. All I've done is to select groups of reported victims from given days - and lined them up for analysis. I'll ask everyone to take a good look at them and draw their own conclusions - if any. I don't think much further commentary on my part is necessary, other than: switch on your critical mind and keep it OPEN.

10: MARINE Jason D. Peto - died on Dec 7, 2010 while conducting combat operations in Helmand province, Afghanistan.

Another "BLACK MONTH" for the Marines was August 2009:

Jay M. Hoskins (Aug 6), Patrick Schimmel(Aug 9), Donald Hogan (Aug26), Joshua Bernard (Aug14), William Cahir (Aug13), Bruce Ferrell (Aug10), David Hall (Aug31)

Curiously, the portraits of Ferrell and Hall (who almost look like twin brothers) have both been heavily cropped at the militarytimes-com website.
Here are to uncropped versions of "Bruce Ferrell" and "David Hall" to be found on the web. Note the almost IDENTICAL backdrops:

So I guess that, whenever those "improvised explosive devices" explode (the most frequently-reported lethal incidents), the Talibans - or other assorted "enemy fighters" - make sure that they always kill groups of US soldiers from the very same regiment / battalion - all of whom just happened to have been neatly portrayed in their specific army division's uniforms by the very same photographer in the very same studio, - and always against the same /or similar backdrop? Wow. How coincidental!...

Now, is this evidence enough that the US government is faking its own war heroes? Of course, we must assume that soldiers get killed out there - what with the inherent perils associated with invading other nations. The question is: just how many? Are the numbers possibly inflated in order to uphold the public's rage against 'the enemy' - so as to strenghten the support for the US/British/Israeli/NATO/Western world's ongoing landgrab and looting of the natural resources of sovereign countries? You decide. You could, of course, just dismiss this research wholesale as some "crackpot's conspiracy theory", turn the other way - and get on with your daily lives in the land of the brave and the home of the free.

Whatever you do, ladies and gents, please do not shoot the messenger. For what it's worth, please know that I consider myself as an earnest observer of this mad world we live in - and my only wish is to restore some sanity for the benefit of humankind at large. In any event, if this patient endeavor of mine should turn out to have any merit - I'll happily take the credit for relieving the US populace from the perpetual anguish caused by the false notion that their kids are being slaughtered like cattle (on a daily basis) in senseless wars of aggression or, as they prefer to call them, "peace-keeping operations". The American (and worldwide) citizens will then have to deal with the fact that they are all being roundly duped, on a daily basis - but that shouldn't be too hard to swallow. Or would it?

May reason prevail


****************************************FOR THE HISTORICALRECORD****************************************************************
JUST as I was posting this [back in March 2013], BOTH Cluesforum and the http://www.militarytimes.com/valor/ website went down - for about 30 minutes! A while later, the MilitaryTimes website went down again - for several hours. A few weeks later, their entire website was revamped and renamed. Here is their new URL: http://thefallen.militarytimes.com/


IMPORTANT UPDATE:
Image
What on Earth happened in 2007? If you go to the above-linked website and browse it "by month/year", you will see that the VAST MAJORITY of the alleged war victims of 2007...
are lacking a portrait / ID photograph of the deceased! Example (April2007): https://thefallen.militarytimes.com/sea ... th=2007-04 .What are we to make of this fact? And why haven't the families who reportedly lost a loved one back in 2007 not complained and "straightened out" this issue by now? If we presume that many have done so (yet this issue has clearly remained unresolved to this day) wouldn't this be HIGHLY DISRESPECTFUL to those families? I am thus hereby launching an appeal to all patriotic American citizens to contact that website and ask for due clarification of this utterly bizarre circumstance. If this doesn't raise any suspicion as to the legitimacy of that memorial website, I fear that nothing ever will.



UPDATE (2019): Since I posted the above research back in 2013, the "HONOR THE FALLEN" website has (on two separate occasions over the years) changed the URL's of all the imagelinks to their soldier portraits - which of course caused the images to disappear from this post. This has forced me, on two occasions, to patiently reconstruct it by returning to their website and finding the correct links to these "soldier portraits". Just saying... I've truly been working overtime to keep this post alive!

QUESTION: HOW "EFFICIENT" ARE THOSE IMPROVISED EXPLOSIVE DEVICES (IED's) ?

Another little question just occured to me today - but since I'm no expert in either explosives nor any sort of lethal firepower, I will defer my question to those who may have some expertise in such things. My question goes as follows:

In the military war memorial analyzed in my above post, we can read that the most-frequently-reported cause of American casualties is "death by IED" (Improvised Explosive Devices) placed by the roadside by the "evil enemy fighters". Seemingly, those IED's are regularly capable of blowing to bits as many as 4, 5 or even 6 American soldiers at a time. The vast majority of these incidents are reported to have occurred as those unfortunate freedomkeepers were travelling inside some modern, "state-of-the art" armored vehicle, such as this :

Image

So my question is: how plausible is it that any sort of makeshift, "Improvised Explosive Device" can blow to shreds such a massive military vehicle (purposely built to withstand explosions) ... and, in the process, kill most or all of its occupants? :huh:

I really hope someone will take the time to respond to this question of mine. After all - and as I said - I have no expertise whatsoever in firepower!... -_-

A most relevant question Simon. We have drafting in Sweden and I did service in an anti armoured vehicles company. All armour piercing weapons use shaped charges. This means that an anti-tank mine (for example) produces a directional explosion, as opposed to a pack of dynamite that explodes in all directions.

This is necessary to pierce armour. So, I would say a very large amount of conventional explosives would be required to do any lethal damage to the occupants of an armored vehicle. On that Hummer I would say that the armoured floor would successfully deflect a substantial blast to the sides—leaving the occupants shocked and deaf, but definitely alive.
