For starters, NAFO, but no surprise there. #Article5 is their go-to hashtag. 1st image is supposed to be the notoriously Polish NAFO founder ("Kama") and 2nd are some of his retweets, including "Shinzofella," a Polish gore artist who started "DarkNAFO." ImageImageImageImage
Anders Aslund, Swedish resident senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, but again, no surprise there. And @lilyslynch tweet reminds me of this Swedish "OG NAFO fella" who led "DarkNAFO" exodus after getting some pushback for declaring "Kama is our overlord" ImageImageImageImage

What we know for sure: 1. a missile hit Poland killing two people. 2. It's Russia's fault. Poeple can argue if it was a SAM that went off course, or a SAM that was repurposed into a SSM, if it was fired from #Belarus, #Ukraine or #Russia. They can push outlandish theories like
Russia claiming Ukraine did it in order to get NATO involved to help Ukraine stave off an impending defeat (as Ukrainian troops retreat East across the Dnipro in the South and all the way to the Belarus and Russian borders in the North). They can argue about what type of rocket
motor and get into the weeds about enameled metal vs brushed metal vs the angles of bolt holts and setting pins. They can argue that NATO should or shouldn't do this or that. I think NATO should close the skies over Western Ukraine so there is my marker. These are all things that

Somebody dropped missiles into Poland. #Article5 allows a NATO response. The media is reporting Russian missiles responsible and evidence from the ground seems to support this. A thread looking at what information is available so far...
Several pictures and video have emerged of the impact site near the Polish border
Suggesting from the debris that the missile was an S-300 5V55 series ground to air missile. If correct, this is a Russian missile,… suggests a range of 90km.

Heute wurden über 100 Raketen und #Drohnen auf die #Ukraine gestartet. Die angegebene Abschussquote ist wieder sehr gut.
1/x Image
Das war der russische Bestand mitte Oktober. Sind jetzt ungefähr 100-120 weniger, da nicht nur heute welche verschossen wurden.
Viele solcher #Terrorangriffe kann Russland nicht mehr durchführen. Die Energieinfrastruktur der Ukraine scheint auch relativ robust zu sein. 2/x Image
Die Schäden sind, für die schwere der Angriffe, gering. Es sollen auch #Raketen/#Flugkörper in Polen eingeschlagen sein und 2 Menschen getötet haben. Das wird nicht beabsichtigt gewesen sein. Das wird auch keinen #NATO #Artikel5 auslösen. 3/x

background: right-wing PAC affiliated with Stephen Miller (aka "fivehead fash boy"); this target looks right-sized for #NAFO #article5 for a variety of reasons.

Thread follows.
You're looking at a fascist right-wing American PAC - these guys are fascist even for the American right, and the American right is openly persecuting sexual "deviants" and calling for Christian nationalism in America.

They're dropping money into ads.…
They're running a recognizably Christopher Rufo playbook.

Rufo is a Republican consultant who invented the phrase "critical race theory"; recently, he called for rallying hatred against transgender & gay folks in order to get people to vote Republican.…

I want to return to ambiguity strategy, reflexive control and the mosh pit analogy real quick with regard to #NAFO.

Facing an unclear potential attack by a known manipulative opponent, the smart thing to do is NOT a knee-jerk defensive response.

In an attacker's shoes, if I know that NAFO as a movement will react predictably to, say, being accused of fascism or working for the CIA (lol) then that gives me a degree of leverage to control it.

This is "reflexive control" doctrine.…

"Appeals to specific leaders' character" should ring pretty familiar right now to NAFO people.

They're doing that in order to discourage NAFO as a counter-disinformation movement.

That's because NAFO has a tangible effect on their ability to spread lies.

MAGA Communists, an ideology that is the political-definition of a horseshoe; an ideology fueled by a love for totalitarianism and a hate for democracy. An inane astroturfing campaign.
This is the story of Infared, the Astroturfers:

For starters, this may be one of my longer threads.... I even used the power of textual analysis to create a dictionary for them!
We will go over the hashtag's spread, the squabbles, the rage, and methods for Article 5
As of today, this is the network structure - and yes that is a disconnected network, which is very important for later on.
For now, the main actors are Hinkle (yes, that Hinkle!), a lad named dink________, and some LaRouche (yes that LaRouche) fan boys

Casually or not, the #Baltic & North Sea region is getting riskier during the last 24hours.

🇳🇴🇬🇧Norway declared the risk of drones over its gas & oil offshore platforms.
🇩🇰Denmark reported several gas leaks on #NordStream 1 and 2.
🇷🇺'000s of Russians refugees.

Certainly, the #Article5 is clear. But seems like #Russia is doing hybrids interventions exploiting some gray areas.

Pipelines (left) and tankers (right) are vulnerable.🧵
The North Sea has an important development of 512 offshore platforms. Static targets.

How to spam the ru Bot asking for coordinates of UA troops/military assets
#NAFO #fellas

1. Go to channel:
2. Press /start and send something (I sent some old pics from news pieces

3. After some time, the bot will send a large message with 7 steps.
4. Ignore that message. The next message is a test. Prove you're not a bot by answering the question in the picture (three + 3 =?)

5. Answer that message with a 6. Don't just write 6, answer the specific message. Otherwise the bot keeps repeating 'Enter a cipher only'.
6. The next two steps are just instructions on how to submit data. The bot asks to first, submit coordinates or a street name and number.

7. Next, the bot asks to type out the exact info. If you submit empty answers or exceed 2500 char., it won't be accepted.

1. I'm no #Assad fan. He is a brutal dictator who used chemical weapons on his own people. But we learned what happens if you destroy a nation's defense force after defeating dictators in #Germany and in #Iraq. What comes is either subjugation to a predator like the USSR or chaos
2. in the form of something like #Daesh. The #Turkish attack on the Syrian #Arab Republic forces near #Kobane is an act of an aggressor nation seeking to subjugate #Syria so it can commit genocide against #Yazidi, #Kurds and #Christians. @NATO cannot permit #Erdogan to hold
3. our collective morality and best interests hostage while he uses #Finland and #Sweden's accession as means to extort complicity in his crimes. Tell #Erdogan if he attacks Syria every member of @NATO will terminate their #Article5 obligations to #Turkey and cast the neo-

#Russian state television #Russia1 says when #Russians “reach the western borders of #Ukraine, the rest will certainly not be about” #Kiev. A “safe corridor” to #Kaliningrad “has to be created” regardless of #NATO “waving their #Article5.” He warns “taming of #Lithuania... [1/2] being considered” but “the issue is with” their masters in #Washington and #Brussels. He suggests striking #Energy & #Logistics infrastructure of #EU as the “spigot closes from here.” He says “#Nuclear weapons might be used.” [2/2]
Speaking on #Russian state television #Russia1, retired General and current #StateDuma deputy, #AndreyGurulyov, says “not one normal member of the military would go for” capturing the #SuwalkiGap with “#NATO forces” on “both sides.” He proposes instead a corridor “from... [1/2]

#Germany's leaders, especially Chancellor #Scholz seem reluctant to really help #Ukraine-especially by providing #heavyweapons.

(Too) many reasons are given for this, even avoiding #nuclear war, but there's a problem with these excuses for🇺🇦- AND for🇩🇪& its #NATO allies
Here's the latest interview with #Scholz in @derspiegel He steers a question about supplying proper weapons to
1) #Germany becoming a party to the war in #Ukraine
2) The danger of a direct confrontation between NATO & Russia
3) WW3 & Nuclear war…
As you can see from the quotes below
- and despite the best efforts of the journalists -
there's a lot of diversion, deflection & flim-flam going on here ...
The key point seems to be to keep stoking and manipulating fear among #Germany's population

NEW: US-#cyber-#Russia-#Ukraine-"My sense is that [US cyber efforts] they've been extremely important in informing the Ukrainians...and in disrupting attacks" by #Russia, @SenJackReed tells @GWUPMNS
Any chance US might feel compelled to intervene in #Ukraine?

@SenJackReed says possibly IF #Russia uses nuclear/chemical/biological weapons in a way that is seen as an attack on @NATO

"This is a NATO decision" he says of the scenario "It's going to be a very difficult call"
#Ukraine - "The quality of their fighting personnel is superb" per @SenJackReed

#Russia-"Their younger soldiers are not informed of what they're doing, where they are" or what to if commanders are eliminated, he says

👋@jensstoltenberg announced that a cyber attack will trigger NATO Article 5. I’m wondering if they will make it retroactive to the 2016 attack on the U.S. election⁉️
🔥If we look back and say that the hack on the DNC etc was a cyber attack that began a war than everyone aiding and abetting that act has committed TREASON‼️#Article5 cc @lauferlaw
🔥Russia admitted the hack was an act of war in this court case. It was art of their defense… but it wasn’t the only act of war. Let’s review👇

QUESTION: A Syrian/Russian attack killed 33 and wounded 30+ troops from Turkey, @NATO member yesterday. Grounds for an #Article5 response? This is what @NATO says. Follow this thread. Image
ANSWER: “Article 5 The principle of collective defence is at the very heart of NATO’s founding treaty. It remains a unique and enduring principle that binds its members together, committing them to protect each other and setting a spirit of solidarity within the Alliance...
Collective defence means that an attack against one Ally is considered as an attack against all Allies.

NATO invoked Article 5 for the first time in its history after the 9/11 terrorist attacks against the United States...

1) THREAD: What to expect if the #US 🇺🇸withdraws from #NATO? At the Körber #PolicyGame, we discussed this scenario w/ high-level officials and experts in coop w/ @IISS_org - here are the summarized results for the Twitterati community: (have mercy, it’s my first thread!)
2) We wanted to know: How would Europeans react in such a situation?What are interests and red lines? Thus, we invited a 🇫🇷, 🇩🇪, 🇵🇱,🇬🇧, and 🇺🇸 team to play our scenario. Crisis in the #South, Crisis in the #East - were #Europeans able to get their act together w/out the 🇺🇸? 💪 🇪🇺
3) The short answer is: willing yes ❕but able❔ First, most teams focused on reversing a #US withdrawal from #NATO by all possible means, offering the 🇺🇸concessions that were unthinkable before - from #trade to #energy. But what if that doesn’t help? 🤔

Suspense for Mueller Rpt

Is Barr playing a highly sophisticated game, signaling he is a paragon of fairness to Trump b/4 he lowers the boom?

Or will he join the likes of Miller, Mulvaney, Pence & Mnuchin as the latest incarnations of Haldeman, Ehrlichman & Colson?

Threads from the Mueller probe could continue to yield new evidence & even more charges for months, if not years, to come — tied to everything from Russian interference in the 2016 election to the hush-money payment scheme Trump’s campaign to the Inauguration.

📌RU interference & hush money scandals were designed to help sway the last White House race, from the fundraising for Trump’s 2017 inauguration to unregistered foreign lobbyists working in the U.S.

📌”The Mueller report was just the first step.”

Delighted to attend #NATOengages, a high-level civil society event hosted by @AtlanticCouncil @gmfus @MunSecConf & @WIISBrussels at new @NATO Headquarters, happening simultaneously with the official #NATOsummit.

Watch LIVE:

Germany Defence Minister @vdleyen:

"Trump is a business man. He will understand that spending is not just about input, but also about output. You can spend 2% on your national defence budget, but not do anything for NATO. Focus must be on capabilities."

#NATOengages #NATOsummit
"A more peaceful, more resilient, more democratic world is good for @Canada.

We deeply believe in @NATO's values:

Peace, security & #DefendingDemocracy are as relevant today as ever." -

PM @JustinTrudeau at #NATOengages #NATOsummit
