Nearly nineteen minute video released from North Baghdad made up of sections of video files shown in a postcard type storyboard up to recent times including VBIED attacks. Executions feature as most of the content of second half of the release showing the victims in military uniforms or in post of public office along with the building in rubble.
Note – bottom left hand corner of the frame below you can see the clip layer which is being used as audio.This is why “detach audio” exists. Very rare to see this error.

Fifteen minute release from Kirkuk which cycles through from Bush to Trump and the American – Kurdish coalition with a number of interesting details.
One of those details is the watch wearing assassins that kill soldiers in their beds.

Fifty five minute video Al Hayat released as a part three to the Flames Of War series. The English narration with its stylised nuances explains the history up to the present time of Islamic State.
The video with its slow motion RPG rocket firing is padded together with battle vision from previous releases, (for example the image below is seen in part three) together with production voice over audio and some off the shelf fire transitions add to the impact which the narrative attempts to impose.
The video ends with men digging a trench as English translations run over the lower third, the scene ends with their execution.
It has been reported that a plot to bomb the Vic Market was cooking on the wire. The market is at the top end of the city and is popular with Melburnians and tourists. It has come to light that a British amateur “jihadist hunters” had posed as a recruiter and was stringing along “recruits” and then passing that information to Police. This plot is apparently not the first time the informant has helped authorities foil attacks.
“The overseas plotter, Sajed, sent his “trainee” a 5000-page terrorism manual, which has chapters on creating improvised explosive devices and two videos on how to cook up a “bomb in a kitchen”. He requested maps and satellite images of the market, and told his recruit to map out the best route to deliver the bomb.” Hutchinson (TheAustralian)
This media barrage and “jihadi hunter” angle will dissaude people from internet connections (at least without verification) and to act in solitary.
A Victoria Police spokesman said the matter was assessed and it was determined they posed no threat.
“Our teams regularly receive information from various sources and carefully assess that information based on validity and risk,” the spokesman said.
“These matters were assessed earlier this year in accordance with that process and it was determined that they pose no threat in Australia.”
In this case why was it necessary to make it a front page news story? The other story that has been getting spun on high revolution is the Australian Army conducting an inquest into SAS soldiers actions some from ten years ago.
“An Australian special forces soldier kicked a handcuffed Afghan detainee off a cliff before endorsing his summary execution, according to allegations made by direct witnesses.” (here)
What does the media think this will precipitate? Is this some type of fuel for riot porn ratings?
UPDATE – June 14th
Images have appeared in Australian Mainstream media of a German Nazi flag being flown on a vehicle. The event took place in 2007 and was summarily dealt with at the the time. This reiterates my point that media seek to provoke and agitate through the dredging up of such images. How will any fair justice be available to soldiers in the Defence Force Inquest?
Perhaps the politicians and journalists who have never been to Afghanistan, let alone a conflict zone should try and understand how “a twisted joke” can raise moral of the men and women who are repeatedly sent into this region and the stress and strains it places on their home lives.

Flying the Nazi flag may be a representation of how the soldiers felt…in a far off country for some unkown reasons, doing the politicians dirty work? (War Pigs)
If this was the case below, you would never hear about it…
UPDATE June 15 2018
The media deluge of this historical artefact has precipitated actions from a disaffected person to send threatening letters to a witness of the Defence Forces Inquiry. Below Mark Biskin (CoD) and Marise Payne (Min.Def) corrects “journalists” who persist with their poisonous rhetoric. (ABC)

May 29, 2018 Full Moon. Belgium experienced another violent terror event this time leaving three dead, a brief hostage event attempt ending with a shoot out, and the gunman dusted in the city of Liege east of Brussels.
AMAQ – dated 30 May 2018
The assailant attacks two police officers, takes their firearms and kills them. The stolen police weapons are then used to kill a young man sitting in a parked car outside a school. The assailant then takes a hostage in an attempt to escape which fails ending in a fire fight upon police again, which resulted in injuring four police officers, and the single gunman dusted.
Early in the media reporting the fact that the man was on “day-leave” from a prison had circulated along with the shouting man and “Allahu Akbar” camera video.
One day later and the event takes an identity of thirty-six year old Benjamin Herman, a man with a long list of convictions and troubles with drugs. It is now revealed that another man had been murdered prior to the terror event.
(Speaking to Belgian media on Wednesday), Herman’s father said his son had acted normally in the hours before the murders. “On Monday I went to get him in prison,”
“After I picked him up, I led him to a session with a psychiatrist in Namur. He [then] spent time here in the garden with the children, he played with them and he even went for ice creams.” (Guardian)
The result of Prislam radicalization.
Liege was the site of the December 2011 murder-suicide event, Nordine Amari (wiki)
‘Famous judicial process of Benjamin Herman. This Rochefortois rocked into crime as a teenager, before becoming addicted to cocaine and heroin and multiple convictions. He even escaped from Lantin!”
