Arrow The Wandering Soul

Ghost Tape Number 10..
Quote:

A loudspeaker team plays the "wandering soul" recordings..

One of the more interesting superstitions of Vietnam is the belief in the wandering soul..It is the Vietnamese belief that the dead must be buried in their homeland, or their soul will wander aimlessly in pain and suffering.. Vietnamese feel that if a person is improperly buried, then their soul wanders constantly.. They can sometimes be contacted on the anniversary of their death and near where they died.. Vietnamese honor these dead souls on a holiday when they return to the site where they passed away.



Hai..
Who is that? Who is calling me?.My daughter? My wife?.
Your Father is back home with you, my daughter..
Your Husband is back home with you, my wife...
But my body is gone..I am dead, my family...

U.S. engineers spent weeks recording eerie sounds and altered voices - which pretended to be killed Vietcong - for use in the operation, with the intended purpose of instilling a sense of turmoil within the enemy, the desired result being for the soldier to flee his position..Helicopters were sometimes employed to broadcast recordings, in which the voices called on their "descendants" in the Vietcong to defect and cease fighting..The extent of the operation's success is unknown..The Vietcong usually encountered return fire if they reacted to the recordings, thus nullifying the intended outcome of the operation...

Lightbulb Chemical Corps

Chemical Warfare..
Quote:


THE DEAD KENNEDYS..

Discussion of the topic dates back to the American Civil War.. A letter to the War Department dated 5 April 1862 from New York City resident John Doughty proposed the use of chlorine shells to drive the Confederate Army from its positions.. Doughty included a detailed drawing of the shell with his letter.. It is unknown how the military reacted to Doughty's proposal but the letter was unnoticed in a pile of old official documents until modern times..The government also recruited soldiers for a new military unit dealing with gas to be based at Camp American University..Before deploying to France in 1917 many of the soldiers in the 30th Engineer Regiment (Gas & Flame) spent their time stateside in training that did not emphasize any chemical warfare skills; instead the training focused on drill, marching, guard duty, and inspections..Despite the conventional training, the public perceived the 30th as dealing mainly with "poisonous gas & hell fire"..By the time those in the 30th Engineers arrived in France most of them knew nothing of chemical warfare and had no specialized equipment...


2nd Chemical Battalion distinctive unit insignia..

In 1946 the Chemical Warfare Service was re-designated as the U.S. Army Chemical Corps, a name the branch still uses..With the change came the added mission of defending against nuclear warfare, in addition, the corps continued to refine its offensive and defensive chemical capabilities..Immediately following World War II, production of U.S. biological warfare agents went from "factory-level to laboratory-level"..Meanwhile, work on BW delivery systems increased..Live testing in Panama was carried out during the San Jose Project..The Chemical Corps Intelligence Agency was located within a facility at Arlington Hall Station, Virginia..As the 1960s progressed, sentiment against the Chemical Corps continued its rise..The Dugway sheep incident, in March 1968, was one of several key events which increased the growing public furor against the corps.. An open air spraying of VX was blamed for killing over 4,000 sheep near Dugway Proving Ground..The Army eventually settled the case and paid the ranchers..Recruitment & career advancement was halted and the Chemical School at Fort McClellan was shut down and moved to Aberdeen Proving Grounds.,The Yom Kippur War between Israel and a coalition of Arab states.. The results of the war demonstrated the desire of the Soviet Union to continue its pursuit of offensive chemical & biological capabilities..By 1982 the Chemical Corps was running smoothly once again, the Army established 28 active duty chemical defense companies..Hundreds of Welsh sheep are still failing radioactivity tests a decade after the Chernobyl disaster...

Hell Is the Impossibility of Reason..

Operation Ranch Hand was a U.S. military operation during the Vietnam War, lasting from 1962 until 1971..Largely inspired by the British use of 2,4,5-T and 2,4-D (Agent Orange) during the Malayan Emergency in the 1950s, it was part of the overall herbicidal warfare program during the war called "Operation Trail Dust".. Ranch Hand involved spraying an estimated 20 million U.S. gallons (76,000 m3) of defoliants & herbicides over rural areas of South Vietnam in an attempt to deprive the Viet Cong of food & vegetation cover.. Areas of Laos & Cambodia were also sprayed to a lesser extent.. Nearly 20,000 sorties were flown between 1961 and 1971..The "Ranch Handers" motto was "Only you can prevent a forest"– a take on the popular U.S. Forest Service poster slogan of Smokey Bear..The herbicides were sprayed by the U.S. Air Force flying C-123s using the call sign Hades..A Ranch hand is a manual laborer on a ranch, such as a cowboy..


4-plane defoliant ..

Herbicidal warfare is the use of substances primarily designed to destroy the plant-based ecosystem of an area..Although herbicidal warfare use chemical substances, its main purpose is to disrupt agricultural food production and/or to destroy plants which provide cover or concealment to the enemy, not to asphyxiate or poison humans and/or destroy human-made structures.. Herbicidal warfare has been forbidden by the Environmental Modification Convention since 1978, which bans "any technique for changing the composition or structure of the Earth's biota"..Texas A&M University notes that exposure to herbicides can produce mild symptoms, such as rashes, nausea and headaches; more dangerous symptoms, such as seizures and convulsions; and even death..Some herbicides can cause nervous system disorders, such as peripheral neuropathy..Animals that bring herbicides into the house may spread the chemicals around the home..Peripheral neuropathy is dam-age to or dis-ease affecting nerves, which may impair sensation, movement, gland or organ function, or other aspects of health, depending on the type of nerve affected - Genetic use restriction technology, colloquially known as "terminator technology", produces plants with sterile seeds - In September 2016 Monsanto agreed to accept Bayer's offer to purchase the company for $66 billion ($128/share), pending regulatory approval...

A skull & crossbones is a symbol consisting of a human skull and 2 long bones crossed together under the skull..The design originates in the Late Middle Ages as a symbol of death and especially as a memento mori on tombstones..In other words, ‘remember death’ or ‘remember that you will die’..

In an average year, Lookout Mountain produced 150 reels of finished film, a reel being 10 minutes of film, or roughly 35–40 finished films..For years, at Christmas, the Air Force provided Bob Hope with air and logistical support for his annual Christmas tours to Vietnam to entertain the troops..Lookout Mountain Air Force Station also supported the AEC with documentation of underground nuclear tests at the Nevada Test Site, Mercury, NV.. In the 1960s, Lookout Mountain, AFS was staffed by more than 250 military and civilian personnel.. The studio employed many talented civilians as producers, writers, directors, cameramen, editors and animators..In 1966 the 1352 Photographic Group took on a new role, the documentation of the growing war in Vietnam.. Photo Squadron lost 11 combat cameramen killed-in-action..4 were killed in 1968 at the height of U.S. combat operations in Vietnam..The Air Force's film depository houses over 100 million feet of 16mm and 35mm color motion picture film..The facility was decommissioned and sold.. It has been a private residence for many years - Estimates of the total number of deaths in the Vietnam War vary widely..According to the Vietnamese government, there were 1,100,000 North Vietnamese Army and Viet Cong military personnel deaths during the War including the missing..

Laurel Canyon is a neighborhood and canyon located in the Hollywood Hills region of the Santa Monica Mountains, in the West district of Los Angeles, California..Laurel Canyon has houses lining one side of the main street most of the way up to Mulholland Drive..The Laurel Canyon area was inhabited by the Tongva people, a regional tribe of the indigenous peoples of California, for thousands of years..A spring-fed stream flowed year-round providing water..The Tongva have another sacred area known as Puvungna.. They have believed it is the birthplace of the Tongva prophet Chingishnish, and many believe it to be the place of creation..The Takic mythology is known only fragmentarily, as these peoples were Christianized early, by Spanish missionaries - Body count has been used as a criterion to judge the 'shock value' of a movie..

Operation Popeye..
Quote:

The Cult - Rain ..

Operation Popeye (Project Controlled Weather Popeye / Motorpool / Intermediary-Compatriot) was a highly classified weather modification program in Southeast Asia during 1967–1972.. The cloud seeding operation during the Vietnam War ran from March 20, 1967 until July 5, 1972 in an attempt to extend the monsoon season, specifically over areas of the Ho Chi Minh Trail..The chemical weather modification program was conducted from Thailand over Cambodia, Laos & Vietnam and allegedly sponsored by Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and CIA without the authorization of then Secretary of Defense Melvin Laird who had categorically denied to Congress that a program for modification of the weather for use as a tactical weapon even existed..


Forrest - Vietnam War + Rain..

Cloud seeding was far from new in the late 1960s.. There were extensive experiments by GE and the U.S. military after World War II.. And ARPA was working with advanced computers in the early 60s to see how weather might be used in battle.. But Operation Popeye was the first known successful use of weather control technology in combat..Some people now go so far as to call the operation the "Watergate of weather warfare."..Weather manipulation is still very much on the minds of U.S. intelligence agencies..It's probably safe to say that humanity hasn't seen the last of weather modification in war..


Gump - First Mate HD ..

The 54th Weather Reconnaissance Squadron carried out the operation, and continuing through every rainy season (March to November) in Southeast Asia until 5 July 1972, operational cloud seeding missions were flown..The initial area of operations was the eastern half of the Laotian panhandle, the operational area was increased northward to around the area of the 20th parallel and included portions of far western North Vietnam with conventional bombing restrictions being put into effect, most of northeastern Cambodia was added to the operational area..Weather modification procedures, when performed to achieve a military end, now fall under the provenance of the Environmental Modification Convention...

Trump Is Just A Little Boy & Controlled By The Military Industrial Complex..


"Little Boy" was the codename for the atomic bomb dropped on the Japanese city of Hiroshima on 6 August 1945 during World War II by the Boeing B-29 Superfortress Enola Gay, piloted by Colonel Paul W. Tibbets, Jr.. commander of the 509th Composite Group of the US Army Air Forces.. It was the first atomic bomb to be used in warfare.. The Hiroshima bombing was the second artificial nuclear explosion in history, after the Trinity test, and the first uranium-based detonation.. It exploded with an energy of approximately 15 kilotons of TNT (63 TJ).. The bomb caused significant destruction to the city of Hiroshima and its occupants..The Navy Bureau of Ordnance built 25 Little Boy assemblies in 1947 for use by the nuclear-capable Lockheed P2V Neptune aircraft carrier aircraft (which could be launched from but not land on the Midway-class aircraft carriers)..The earliest trumpets date back to 1500 BC and earlier..The Shofar, made from a ram horn and the Hatzotzeroth, made of metal, are both mentioned in the Bible...

Ya know, I read a lot. Especially about things... about history..

I'm an angel. I kill firstborns while their mamas watch..

In 1945, the sinking of Indianapolis led to the greatest single loss of life at sea, from a single ship, in the history of the US Navy.. The ship had just finished a high-speed trip to United States Air Force Base at Tinian, to deliver parts of the first atomic bomb ever used in combat (the US' Little Boy), and was on training duty.. At 0015 on 30 July 1945 the ship was torpedoed by the Imperial Japanese Navy submarine I-58. The ship, on her way to the Philippines, sank in 12 minutes. Of 1,196 crewmen aboard, approximately 300 went down with the ship.. The remaining 900 faced exposure, dehydration, saltwater poisoning, and shark attacks while floating with few lifeboats and almost no food or water.. The Navy learned of the sinking when survivors were spotted 4 days later by the crew of a PV-1 Ventura on routine patrol. Only 317 survived.. All the Little Boy units were withdrawn from service by the end of January 1951..

You understand what I'm saying to you?..

The Department of Energy took the weapon from the museum to remove its inner components, so the bombs could not be stolen and detonated with fissile material.. The government returned the emptied casing to the Smithsonian in 1993.. Three other disarmed bombs are on display in the United States; another is at the Imperial War Museum in London..The 20th century saw an explosion in the amount and variety of music written for the trumpet...

Arrow Third Battle of Seoul

Chinese New Year's Offensive..
Quote:

Captured British Soldiers..

First Battle of Seoul - On 25 June 1950; North Korean forces crossed the 38th parallel..The North Koreans utilized a blitzkrieg style invasion using T-34 tanks supported by artillery..Within 3 days, North Korean troops had taken over the capital..With the People's Republic of China entering the Korean War in late 1950, the conflict had entered a new phase..Seoul is the capital city of South Korea, which is roughly bisected into northern and southern halves by the Han River..The harsh Korean winter, with temperatures as low as -20 °C (-4 °F), had frozen the Imjin and the Hantan River over most of the river crossings, and it eliminated a major obstacle for the attacking Chinese forces..By 22 December 1950, the US Eighth Army's front had stabilized along the 38th parallel..Because the South Korean forces had suffered nearly 45,000 casualties at the end of 1950, most of the South Korean units were composed of raw recruits with little combat training..The Chinese forces were also suffering from logistics problems and exhaustion after their earlier victories..were now suffering from hunger and the lack of winter clothing..Responding to Peng's concern over the troops' conditions, Mao limited the scope of the Third Phase Campaign to pin down the South Korean forces along the 38th parallel while inflicting as much damage as possible..On the evening of 31 December 1950, the PVA 13th Army launched a massive attack against South Korean forces along the 38th parallel..By 15 December 1950, the ROK 1st Infantrye Division had retreated back to the town of Chok—its original defensive position at the start of the Korean War..


Combat footage, Korean War (1950) newsreel..

Faced with the South Korean defense, the Chinese had prepared for well over a month for the offensive..Acting on Ridgway's prediction, the ROK Army Headquarters ordered all units to full alert at dusk on December 31, but many of its soldiers were either drunk from the New Year celebration or had abandoned their posts in order to escape the cold..The Chinese attacks against the ROK 6th Infantry Division, however, did not go as commanders had planned..By the night of January 1, the UN defenses at the Imjin River and the Hantan River had completely collapsed with the Chinese advancing 9 mi (14 km) into UN territory..The Chinese stopped their advance on January 2..The Chinese operational order for the Third Phase Campaign called for the 42nd and the 66th Corps to protect the Chinese left flank by eliminating the ROK 2nd and 5th Infantry Divisions, while cutting the road between Chuncheon and Seoul..On January 5, the PVA 42nd and 66th Corps were relieved by the North Korean People's Army (KPA) II and V Corps, and the North Koreans launched a separate offensive towards Wonju..In the aftermath of the Chinese attacks on along the 38th parallel, Ridgway worried that the Chinese would exploit the breakthrough at Chuncheonen to circle the entire 8th Army..Some Chinese forces managed to trap the 3rd Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment of the 27th British Commonwealth Brigade ..The Chinese forces lacked the ability to lay siege to the city, so the evacuation order caught Peng by surprise..After the US 24th Division evacuated Seoul on the night of 3 January the 27th Commonwealth Brigade started to cross the Han River on the morning of January 4, and by 07:40 the entire US IX Corps had left Seoul..On the left flank of the U.S. 24th Infantry Division, the British 29th Infantry Brigade of the US I Corps was involved in the hardest fighting of the entire battle..The 1st Battalion, Royal Ulster Rifles covered the brigade's left flank, while the 1st Battalion, Royal Northumberland Fusiliers was stationed on the brigade's right flank..The 1st Battalion, Gloucestershire Regiment and the 1st Battalion, 21st Royal Thai Regiment covered the brigade's rear with artillery support..The entire 1RNF soon came under sniper fire and the Chinese made repeated attempts to capture the Y Company of 1RNF..While 1RUR was under attack, the Chinese forces also infiltrated 1RNF's positions by exploiting the unguarded valleys between hilltops occupied by the British..


Map of the Chinese Third Phase Campaign..

To restore 1RNF's position, Brigadier Thomas Brodie of the 29th Infantry Brigade sent the W Company of 1RNF with 4 Churchill tanks as reinforcement..The reinforcement was met with machine gun and mortar fire, but the Chinese resistance immediately crumbled under the Churchill tanks' devastating assaults..In the aftermath of fighting, the 29th Infantry Brigade suffered at least 16 dead, 45 wounded and 3 missing, while 200 Chinese dead were found within 1RNF's position..The evacuation plan called for a coordinated withdrawal..With the road completely open between the American rear guards and the British units, the 446th Regiment of the PVA 149th Division infiltrated UN rear areas and set up an ambush against 1RUR and the Cooper Force of the 8th King's Royal Irish Hussars.. The Chinese had also attacked the Cromwell tanks of the Cooper Force with bundle grenades and Bangalore torpedoes, setting several on fire..The US 27th Infantry Regiment tried to rescue the trapped British troops, but Brodie stopped the rescue in order to prevent more unnecessary losses..When the British 29th Infantry Brigade left Seoul at 08:00 on January 4, the US 27th Infantry Regiment became the last UN tactical unit that remained in the city..The Incheon port and the Kimpo Airfield were then demolished to deny their use to the Chinese and North Korean forces..On the afternoon of January 4, the KPA I Corps, the PVA 38th Corps and the PVA 50th Corps entered Seoul, but they were only greeted by an empty city in flames..Most of the civilians had either fled south through the frozen Han River or evacuated to the nearby countryside..By January 7, Peng halted the Third Phase Campaign due to troop exhaustion and to prevent a repeat of the Incheon landing...Although the UN casualties were moderate during the battle, the Third Battle of Seoul was a significant success for the Chinese military in Korea, and the UN forces' morale had sunk to its lowest point during the war..Despite its victory, the PVA had become completely exhausted after fighting nonstop since the start of the Chinese intervention..US Far East Air Forces' "Interdiction Campaign No.4 ", which was launched on 15 December 1950 against Chinese and North Korean supply lines, also made the Chinese unable to sustain any further offensives southward..But to the surprise of Chinese commanders, Ridgway and the Eighth Army soon counterattacked the PVA with Operation Thunderbolt on 25 January 1951...

If the enemy is currently in its weakest state ever, attack it without mercy and totally destroy it to prevent future troubles..In any battle the element of surprise can provide an overwhelming advantage...https://forum.davidicke.com/showpost...&postcount=644

Eleanor..

Born 5 November 1927..


The flag of the Viet Cong, adopted in 1960..

1962Archie E. Mitchell (44), a minister and Eleanor Ardel Vietti (34), a doctor with the Christian and Missionary Alliance, was taken captive by the Viet Cong..The term Viet Cong appeared in Saigon newspapers beginning in 1956..


The Stranglers (1981) Vietnamerica ..

On Wednesday evening, May 30 Mitchell and the rest of the staff of the leprosarium were preparing to meet at Dr. Vietti's house for their weekly prayer meeting.. At dusk, around 7:45 p.m., a group of 12 members of the Viet Cong entered the leprosarium grounds, which was located about nine miles from Ban Me Thuot..The city is the largest in Vietnam's Central Highlands region, and is famous as the regional "capital of coffee"..The Viet Cong split up into three groups of four members each, and one group met Dan Gerber, who served with the Mennonite Central Committee, and tied him up.. A second group went to the Mitchell home, ordered Archie out of the house, tied him up, and led him away with Dan Gerber.. This was witnessed by the members of the Mitchell family including his wife, Betty, and three of their four children, Rebecca (age 13), Loretta (age 10), and Glenn (age 8)..The youngest Mitchell child, daughter Geraldine (age 4), was already asleep in bed.. Another group of Viet Cong went to Vietti's house and found her in bed..She was ordered to get up, dress, and she was led out of the compound, unbound, to join the other two captives..


The Holy leper King of Jerusalem/ Baldwin IV..

Vietti was born in Fort Worth, Texas and had a twin sister, Teresa J. Vietti and a younger brother, Victor..In 1961, her sister Teresa visited the leper Colony.. A captured Viet Cong soldier told interrogators later in 1962 that Vietti was treating the Viet Cong wounded..

What became of them after that is unknown...
