Flames of War – Three

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.


Flames Of War -2 

Flames of War – September 2014


Conquer the Enemies Kirkuk

Twenty five minute video (below) with formula story board grievances listed along with video of the events generally in the form of political leaders giving speeches and some explosive transitions leading onto a roadblock kidnapping which ends in finger pointing rant execution in which one of the men is prompted to display his tattoo. The release is a day after Syria announced Aleppo is one hundred percent eradicated of vermin Daesh.

Iraq have executed forty women (here) with nearly one thousand rounded up out of the ruins of the Iraqi liberated cities. With the election of Moqtada al-Sadr does this signal  more of an Iranian influence which has increased since the US invasion in 2003. This in parallel to a change in ideological areas as religious centres fluxing between Najaf, the capital Shiadon as opposed to Qom, which was popular under Hussein’s regime.


The second half of the video extends the road block kidnapping in what looks like soldiers on leave returning to their base being captured and driven away.

The next connection is shown matching the men with their social media images posing with heavy artillery, some in uniform with other prominent military leaders.


The men are cruelly executed, one with large calibre fire. 


Shadows of the Slaughter 4

Shadows of the Slaughter 4 from Furat is a five minute shoot and loot beginning with a rant in a room style lecture.

The same formula of story board is applied as the previous three parts (3) (2) (1). Attack and overwhelm an outpost, loot the ammunition and vehicles and capture and execute survivors.


Shadows of the Slaughter 2

Close to seven minutes fire fight, shoot and loot video much the same as the first part (tangentcode)  from earlier in August 2017.
