Isis the 6th by the British hard as nails band Rainbow Six describes Rainbow as an international counter-terrorism operation hosted by NATO and funded by money funneled through the U.S. Department of the Interior..The base of operations for Rainbow is located in Hereford, England, due to the UK being 1 of the most accessible countries in the world and having one of the world's foremost special forces units.. Most of the characters in Rainbow are American or British, though the NATO countries of France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Canada, and the NATO ally of Israel have at least one representative Each...Raleased 10 June 1982...

The Rainbow Warrior (sometimes informally called Rainbow Warrior I) was a former UK Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAFF) trawler later purchased by the environmental organization Greenpeace. The ship was active in supporting a number of Greenpeace protest activities against seal hunting, whaling and nuclear weapons testing during the late 1970s and early 1980s. She was sunk whilst in harbour in New Zealand by operatives of the French intelligence service (DGSE) on 10 July 1985, killing one of the activists..The Rainbow Warrior was built in 1955, in Aberdeen, Scotland, as a trawler named Sir William Hardy, and entered service with the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food. She served until 1977 when she was put up for sale by the Ministry. She was acquired by Greenpeace at a cost of £40,000 and underwent a 4-month refit.. She was re-launched on April 29, 1978 as Rainbow Warrior (reportedly named after a book called Warriors of the Rainbow), the first ship to serve with Greenpeace. Further modifications followed, with the replacement of the engines in 1981 and the fitting of sails in a ketch rig in 1985.. She served as Greenpeace's primary fundraising ship, traveling the world to collect money for environmental campaigns..She travelled to New Zealand to lead a flotilla of yachts protesting against French nuclear testing at the Moruroa Atoll in the Tuamotu Archipelago of French Polynesia. During previous nuclear tests at Moruroa, protest ships had been boarded by French commandos after sailing into the shipping exclusion zone around the atoll. For the 1985 tests, Greenpeace intended to monitor the impact of nuclear tests and place protesters on the island to illegally monitor the blasts. The French Government infiltrated the Canada-based organisation and discovered these plans..3 teams had carried out the bombings.. In addition to those successfully prosecuted, a 2-man team had carried out the actual bombing, but their identities have never been officially confirmed..Fernando Pereira (May 10, 1950–July 10, 1985) was a freelance Dutch photographer, of Portuguese Origin..Videos were shot for the songs "Stone Cold" and "Death Alley Driver", which featured Sega's video game Turbo.. They are still occasionally aired on VH1's Metal Mania program... want, what they want, and every other one who spilled their guts and gave everything they had, wants! For our country to love us as much as we love it!..You should give it to them...
