Just a little free thinking here.
We are told that the NZ shooter visited Turkey and a few other Muslim countries. We are told that he was Not a citizen of AU? We are also told that he acquired his 5 AR-15’s legally? we are told that he wrote a rambling manifesto. We are told that he picked NZ because it would be the last place anyone would expect it. We are shown what appears to be his weapons with all kinds of writing on them that is luney.
Do I appear to have the basics right so far?
Next we have heard that muslim immigrants to AU are being shipped to NZ. We are also told that there was an expected release of an ISIS terrorist into the population in NZ. We are shown Multiple attacks and violent acts by muslims in a bunch of countries. We have seen many towns and countries ruling structure taken over by muslims. We see the anger on both sides rising. We see the media not reporting that which is told to us by other means.
So far does this all seem to be correct?
Now a thought framed around 2 words – physiologic operations(physi-ops).
What if, based on a growing fear and a need to redirect the narrative, you are tasked to change the narrative? How would you do it? Would you get a guy, train him(he obviously had some skills with the 15. 180 shots? in about 2 minutes? then knowing the gun would need a cleaning after that many rounds, simply gets a new one for the next batch? shooting someone and wounding them then walking up to them and shooting them in the head?). Would you either make the guy appear off his rocker or get one that is off his rocker a bit (as evidenced by his manifesto?). And then tell him to go out and shoot as many as you can based on a profile? sacrificing a few for the narrative of the many? Have the media report tales of heroic sacrifice (??proven or not??).
If this is indeed the case then It would appear to have worked as for the moment public opinion has turned like expected. What is to be the next step? Simple , Look at the rules in the book for these types of operations.
Like I said this is all a thought exersize with the few facts we have been shown. A big what if with no proofs. And now we see all the usual political stuff coming out. Like a call for more gun control… etc.
