On the show Kemp travels around the world talking to gang members

Years active 1980 - present

Criminal activities Drug trafficking, robbery, Larceny, extortion, human trafficking, illegal immigration, money laundering, murder, pandering, racketeering, assault, kidnapping and arms trafficking.

Ross Kemp is running a series of documentaries following the progress of British Army troops in Afghanistan;

Ross Kemp in Afghanistan

On 21 January 2008, Sky broadcast the first episode of a five-part series Ross Kemp in Afghanistan, which entails Kemp following the 1st Battalion of the British Army's Royal Anglian Regiment during their deployment to Afghanistan's Helmand Province from March to August 2007. In preparation for the assignment, Kemp had to participate in military training for personal defence, including use of the SA80 assault rifle. Kemp has a personal interest in the Royal Anglians, as he is from their recruiting area, and his father served with one of the predecessor regiments of the 1st Battalion, the Royal Norfolk Regiment, in Cyprus. He has since returned to Afghanistan to film a second series of Ross Kemp in Afghanistan, which began its broadcast on Sky One on February 1, 2009, titled Ross Kemp Return to Afghanistan.

In January and February 2010, Sky broadcast a 2-part documentary on the situation in Gaza and Israel. Ross Kemp follows Hamas to try and get a glimpse at what is sparking the violence between the two nations in some of the most politically fraught places in the world. He also examines the black market importation from Egypt into Gaza.

Bermuda has an affluent economy, with finance as its largest sector followed by tourism, giving it the world's highest GDP per capita in 2005. It has a subtropical climate.

The Bermuda Regiment is the home defence unit of the British Overseas Territory of Bermuda. It is a single territorial[citation needed] infantry battalion that was formed by the amalgamation in 1965 of two originally-voluntary units, the all white Bermuda Volunteer Rifle Corps (BVRC) and the mostly black Bermuda Militia Artillery (BMA).

Bermuda Regiment badge


The Royal Anglian Regiment has a unique relationship with the Bermuda Regiment, a Territorial battalion of the British Overseas Territory of Bermuda. Although the Bermuda Regiment is usually described as an affiliated regiment, its relationship to the Regiment is more akin to that of one of Royal Anglian's own TA battalions. The Bermuda Regiment is an amalgamation of the old Bermuda Militia Artillery and Bermuda Volunteer Rifle Corps (BVRC, which had been renamed the Bermuda Rifles). During the Great War, the latter unit had sent two drafts to serve as part of the 1 Battalion of the Lincolnshire Regiment, one of Royal Anglian Regiment's predecessors, on the Western Front.

The Junior NCOs (Corporals and Lance-Corporals) of the Bermuda Regiment attend Skill-At-Arms courses at the Royal Anglian Regiment depot, and many Bermuda Regiment officers and NCOs have served on attachment with the Royal Anglians. During the 1980s, the entire cadre of officers, warrant officers, and NCOs of the Bermuda Regiment was briefly attached to a battalion of Royal Anglians deployed to Belize.

23 August 2007 friendly fire incident

In a reported friendly fire incident, on 23 August 2007, one of a pair United States Air Force F-15E fighter aircraft called in to support a fighting patrol of the 1st Battalion in Afghanistan dropped a bomb which killed three soldiers in the patrol, and injuring two others. It was subsequently revealed after radio transmissions were released, that a series of procedural violations and communication errors commited by both the British Forward Air Controller and the F-15E Weapons System Officer, led to incorrect coordinates being targeted, which resulted in the deaths of the three soldiers. The British Forward Air Controller is currently facing manslaughter charges. [3] The F-15 in question was based at RAF Lakenheath in Suffolk.

The word derives from the Ancient Greek theatron (θέατρον) meaning "the seeing place."

In warfare, a theater, or theatre or seat of war is defined as a specific geographical area of conduct of armed conflict, bordered by areas where no combat is taking place.

Theatre (or theater, see spelling differences) is a branch of the performing arts. Any performance may be considered theatre; however, as a performing art, theatre focuses almost exclusively on live performers creating a self-contained drama.

I wonder if he (KEMP) has got a interest in MOSSAD ?

I wonder if the Elites watch all the REAL Warfare Zoomed in Satellite from the comfort of their Private Cinemas.

and then all the Wooden actors who get paid paid ridiculous amounts of money then can portray all the action on TV for the Dumbed down masses.

Default Iranian Embassy Siege

The Iranian Embassy Siege of 1980 was a siege of the Iranian embassy in London after it had been taken over by Iranian Arab separatists. The siege was ended when the Special Air Service (SAS), a British special forces unit, stormed the building in Operation Nimrod. The incident brought the SAS to the world's attention as the whole episode was played out in front of the Media.

BBC Iranian Embassy Siege Documentary pt 1


At 11:30 on 30 April 1980 a six-man team calling itself the Democratic Revolutionary Movement for the Liberation of Arabistan (DRMLA) captured the embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Prince's Gate, South Kensington in central London.

BBC Iranian Embassy Siege Documentary pt 2


Initially the group's demands were for the autonomy of an Arab-majority petroleum-rich region in southern Iran known as Khūzestān (the Arabistan of the group's name); later they demanded the release of ninety-one of their comrades, alleged political prisoners of the Iranian government, held in jails in Iran.

When the group first stormed the building, 26 hostages were taken (including PC Trevor Lock, the police constable on official protection duty at the main entrance, and two visiting BBC personnel – journalist Chris Cramer and sound recordist Sim Harris – who had stopped by to pick up visas), but five were released over the following few days. Police negotiators attempted to mollify the gunmen with supplies of food and cigarettes, and on the third day a statement by the group was broadcast on BBC Radio 2 following threats to KILL a hostage (which was missed by the group as they were tuning in to RADIO 4 instead).

BBC Iranian Embassy Siege Documentary pt 3


On the SIXTH day of the siege, the kidnappers KILLED a hostage, press attaché Abbas Lavasani, who joined up optionally, and threw his body outside. Covered by armed police, two men carrying a stretcher collected his body and took it to an ambulance, while keeping low to avoid gunfire. This marked an escalation of the situation and prompted Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's decision to proceed with the rescue operation.

Aftermath

There was controversy over the deaths of some of the terrorists, especially of Shai and Makki. They were guarding the Iranian hostages, and towards the end of the raid the hostages persuaded the men to surrender. Hostages witnessed them throw down their weapons and sit on the floor with their hands on their heads when the SAS troops entered the room. Weapons being thrown out of a window and a white flag were seen by video cameras outside.

Ahmad Dadgar, a hostage at the time (confirmed by two other hostages) said (of the SAS):
"They then took the two terrorists, pushed them against the wall and shot them. They wanted to finish their story. That was their job." [They might have] "had something in their pockets, but they certainly had no weapons in their hands at the time."

At a coroner's inquest the SAS were cleared of unlawful conduct by a jury. One of the soldiers said that he thought Makki was going for a gun, and another said he thought Shai had a hand grenade and shot him in the back of the neck.

Margaret Thatcher and her husband Denis paid a visit to the SAS at Regent's Park barracks after the incident to thank them. "Tom", one of the SAS soldiers present, said of a later meeting with Denis Thatcher:
"He had a big grin on his face and said, 'You let one of the bastards live.' We failed in that respect."

In the Conservative government's election broadcast of June 1983, a television clip of the SAS raid on the embassy was used as an example of how Britain had stood firm on terrorism and (unlike several other countries at the time) refused to surrender to the demands of terrorists under Mrs Thatcher.

In addition to marksmanship, military snipers are also trained in camouflage, field craft, infiltration, reconnaissance and observation. Snipers are especially effective when deployed within the urban terrain of urban warfare, or jungle terrain of jungle warfare.

The longest range recorded for a sniper kill currently stands at 2,475 m (2,707 yd) and was achieved by CoH Craig Harrison, a sniper from the Household Cavalry of the British Army. It was accomplished in an engagement in November 2009 in which two stationary Taliban machine gunners were killed south of Musa Qala in Helmand Province in Afghanistan with two consecutive shots by CoH Harrison using an Accuracy International L115A3 Long Range Rifle chambered in .338 Lapua Magnum.

Servicewoman and SAS trio died in Snatch Land Rover despite officer's warnings

A Special Forces commander voiced concern to his superiors about Snatch Land Rovers before THREE of his men and a servicewoman were killed in a bomb blast while travelling in one of the lightly armoured vehicles in Afghanistan, an inquest was told yesterday.

The SAS reservists were also deployed for four months without vital bomb-detecting equipment, according to a witness. When it did arrive, there were only half the recommended number of mine-detecting devices, he told an inquest into the deaths of Corporal Sarah Bryant — the first British female soldier to die in Afghanistan — and three members of 23rd SAS Regiment, who were all killed in June 2008.

Corporal Bryant, 26, Corporal Sean Reeve, 28, Lance-Corporal Richard Larkin, 39, and Trooper Paul Stout, 31, were killed when the back wheels of their Snatch Land Rover went over a roadside bomb, east of Lashkar Gah, the capital of Helmand province, on June 17, 2008. A fifth soldier, who had been WALKING AHEAD ? of the vehicle with a mine detector, WAS Wounded.

However, it is also suggested that the patrol jointly agreed not to take vehicles because they felt they were too few in number and too small (only short-wheel base Land Rovers were available) to be of use and were ill-suited to a mission that was intended to be conducted from a fixed observation post.

Exclamation History of Ra

Special Reconnaissance Regiment

The Special Reconnaissance Regiment or SRR is a Special Forces regiment of the British Armed Forces. It was established on 6 APRIL 2005 and is part of the United Kingdom Special Forces (UKSF) under command Director Special Forces, alongside the Special Air Service (SAS), Special Boat Service (SBS) and the Special Forces Support Group (SFSG).

The Ministry of LIES does not comment on special forces matters, therefore little verifiable information exists in the public domain.

The Ministry of LIES (or Minitrue, in Newspeak) is one of the four ministries that govern Oceania in George Orwell's novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. As with the other Ministries in the novel, the Ministry of Truth is a misnomer and in reality serves an opposing purpose to that which its name would imply, being responsible for the falsification of historical events; and yet is aptly named in a deeper sense, in that it creates/manufactures "truth" in the newspeak sense of the word.





The Special Air Service, like every British regiment, has its own uniform distinctions. Their normal barracks headdress is the sand-coloured beret, their cap badge is a downward pointing flaming sword (often referred to as a winged dagger) worked in cloth of a Crusader shield with the motto Who Dares Wins. SAS pattern parachute wings, designed by Lieutenant Jock Lewes and based on the stylised sacred Ibis wings of Isis of Egyptian iconography depicted in the décor of Shep heard's Hotel in Cairo, are worn on the right shoulder.







Shine a Light on

The Abyss (James Cameron, 1989)


R'lyeh is in the middle of one of the biggest patches of empty ocean on Earth.

[Aliens] [1986]


They worshipped, so they said, the Great Old Ones who lived ages before there were any men, and who came to the young world out of the sky. Those Old Ones were gone now, inside the earth and under the sea; but their dead bodies had told their secrets in dreams to the first men, who formed a cult which had never died...hidden in distant wastes and dark places all over the world until the time when the great priest Cthulhu, from his dark house in the mighty city of R'lyeh under the waters, should rise and bring the earth again beneath his sway. Some day he would call, when the stars were ready, and the secret cult would always be waiting to liberate him.

Exclamation Special Air Service

Special Air Service





The Special Air Service or SAS is a special forces regiment of the British Army that has served as a model for the special forces of many other countries all over the world.The Special Air Service together with the Special Boat Service (SBS), Special Reconnaissance Regiment (SRR), and the Special Forces Support Group (SFSG) form the United Kingdom Special Forces under the command of the Director Special Forces.



While the Special Air Service traces its origins to 1941 and the Second World War, it gained fame and recognition worldwide after successfully assaulting the Iranian Embassy in London and rescuing hostages during the 1980 Iranian Embassy Siege, lifting the regiment from obscurity outside the military establishment.[11]



The Special Air Service comprises 22 Special Air Service Regiment of the Regular Army, 21 Special Air Service Regiment and 23 Special Air Service Regiment provided by the Territorial Army. It is tasked with special operations in wartime, and primarily counter-terrorism in peacetime.

But aren’t you supposed to be expendable? Isn’t that the law of the Special Forces? “There’s always an element that you may have to sort out yourself in the end,” he replies, “but for people to turn back at headquarters and say they’re not even going to try anyway, well that’s just not acceptable in any way, shape or form. If you’re going to put people in harm’s way, you’ve got a duty to do your utmost to get them back. And if you’re not, you’ve got to tell them.”

Noting with irony that many of the officers involved in the Bravo Two Zero chain received commendations and promotions, Coburn tells me: “I also wanted to address the vilification of Vince Phillips. He’s basically been held up as a scapegoat of why things failed, which is totally inaccurate. I felt I should do that, because no-one else lifted a finger to do it.”

In fact, his main battles have been with the British government. Crammed into the final chapter of Soldier Five, they seem worthy of a tome themselves. The MoD has spent five years and around £7 million of British taxpayer’s money trying to have Soldier Five banned. The case was a cause celebre in his native New Zealand.




“Oh, if Bin Laden wasn’t around, I’d be enemy number one,” he says, searching my face for reaction. “I’ve no doubt about it. The way they’ve gone after me over the years is amazing.”

Coburn’s ‘crime’ has been to write a powerful account of what actually happened during Bravo Two Zero. Ostensibly his book Soldier Five is a straightforward, albeit absorbing tale of one man’s ordeal during a mission that went badly wrong. However, from the outset it’s clear that Coburn’s version of events (written in conjunction with another patrol member, an Australian known simply as ‘Mal’) is different to previous accounts: he is captured, shot and tortured but there is none of the conspicuous mass death-dealing of McNab’s or Ryan’s work. His is a more sombre, truthful story, which also differs markedly over the role and fate of the late Vince Phillips. There is noticeably no incident with a goatherd at all. “His brother had a nervous breakdown and his father died a broken man as a result of what happened to Vince,” Coburn says sadly. “People were quite happy to lay the blame with somebody they knew couldn’t answer.”
