Ter·ror·ism (Noun): When OTHER People Do What We Do

George Washington's picture





 

The United States is arguably the world’s largest sponsor of terrorism, although we call it “self defense” and fighting “humanitarian” wars.

But when other people – especially brown-skinned people who wear funny clothes – do the same things that we do, we label it as terrorism.

Mark Selden - Bartle Professor of History and Sociology at Binghamton University – explains:

American politicians and most social scientists definitionally exclude actions and policies of the United States and its allies” as terrorism.

For example, the American military  indiscriminately kills innocent civilians (and see this),  calling it “carefully targeted strikes”.  When others do it, we rightfully label it terrorism.

When Al Qaeda, Syrians or others target  people attending funerals of those killed – or those attempting to rescue people who have been injured by –   previous attacks, we rightfully label it terrorism.  But the U.S. government does exactly the same thing, without any criticism by government apologists.

Torture is a recognized form of terrorism.  The United States has always considered waterboarding to be a crime of torture, including when the Japanese did it in WWII (and see this).

But the government and its lackeys tried to say that American waterboarding in the “war on terror” was not torture.   When asked during his 2008 presidential bid whether waterboarding was torture, Rudy Giuliani answered:

It depends on the circumstances. It depends on who does it.

Indeed, we have a long history of using bombs and violence as a way to scare the civilian populations into seeing things our way.

But that is never labeled terrorism by the U.S.  Instead, anyone who simply disagrees with U.S. policy (including those with the nerve to criticize the wars on brown-skinned people throughout North Africa and the Middle East planned 20 years ago) may be targeted with the  terrorist  label.

Why Are the American People So Easily Fooled?

As the Atlantic points out:

Since 9/11, many Americans have conflated terrorism with Muslims; and having done so, they’ve tolerated or supported counterterrorism policies safe in the presumption that people unlike them would bear their brunt. (If Mayor Bloomberg and the NYPD sent officers beyond the boundaries of New York City to secretly spy on evangelical Christian students or Israeli students or students who own handguns the national backlash would be swift, brutal, and decisive. The revelation of secret spying on Muslim American students was mostly defended or ignored.)

 

In the name of counterterrorism, many Americans have given their assent to indefinite detention, the criminalization of gifts to certain charities, the extrajudicial assassination of American citizens, and a sprawling, opaque homeland security bureaucracy; many have also advocated policies like torture or racial profiling that are not presently part of official anti-terror policy.

 

***

 

It ought to be self-evident that non-Muslims perpetrate terrorist attacks, and that a vanishingly small percentage of Muslims are terrorists, but those two truths aren’t widely appreciated in America. That doesn’t mean they won’t reassert themselves, for terrorist attacks have always been with us; the tactic has never been exclusive to a single ideology for very long; and the power the state marshals against one sort of terrorist is sure to be first to hand when another sort strikes.

 

***

 

Having flattened so many laws (and a good many innocents) in pursuit of the terrorist, the American majority is naturally loath to focus its attention on a terrorist who looks, talks, and dresses as they do. It is particularly uncomfortable for those in the country who feel most reflexively safe when “an American” is beside them on a plane, instead of a bearded man with a turban. Watching [the Sikh temple massacre], that subset of Americans was put in a position to realize that a day prior they’d have identified with the terrorist more than his victims.

 

And so they quickly looked away.

History shows that when people try to ignore terrorism done to others – pretending that it doesn’t effect them – they end up vulnerable, alone and exposed.

And letting our fear of terror get out of hand makes people stupid.

And it should be clear that the failure to really investigate 9/11 (and the government’s bumbling incompetence or worse) has led to the spread of terrorism.  Specifically, there was state support for 9/11 from at least one government … and yet we haven’t changed our foreign policy based upon that fact.  And if people knew that 9/11 was preventable,  they would demand real national security, instead of the ruthless global war and shameless fear-mongering which has been the government’s response to those attacks.

Milgram experiment

The Milgram experiment on obedience to authority figures was a series of notable social psychology experiment  conducted by Yale University psychologist Stanley Milgram, which measured the willingness of study participants to obey an authority figure who instructed them to perform acts that conflicted with their personal conscience.

"The United States is arguably the world’s largest sponsor of terrorism..."

But, but, but YOU support the false edifice of Govt GW

Like the founding dreamers, sorry fathers, you're all for a monopoly of authority and power on society to "govern" it like a God right?

You expect the largest minority block of voters to have the greatest wisdom who then votes for the exact right candidate who on election day suddenly becomes blessed as a very wise man with all human knowledge and can go forth/froth (like Barney Frank) and act like God over society.. that's the deal right?

Ok you have a few caveats, some wishful thinking scribbled down on a scrap of paper called Da Constitution, but rice paper aside you're all for this monopoly institution and it cooking up lots of rules and regulations for us to live by correcto?

And not that you've thought much past this quaint liberal bullcrap window dressing anything like realistically (or thoughtfully) but you therefore want normal human beings to be voted onto this throne, King for the Day or for a 4 year term. You expect people given bucket loads of power by wishful thinkers (voters) to then get enriched by this porcess. Er, how precisely???????

And you don't expect the monopoly power to go to their heads? The 'right' to tax (thieve) from societies pockets without their consent. If they don't want to pay up let's suspend 'democracy' (cough) and send in the IRS dirty filthy tricks Dept ....directed incidentally by The Fed (a private banksters monopoly on money).. lookin good isn't it GW?

You expect people to be given the right to vote on a few scraps of paper passing as Party Manifestos but not able to select any 1 of the 99% of other policies Govt meddles in. You ordered the voting system, live with it.

Ignore "power corrupts" and keep praying to Da Constitution every night before bedtime peoples "good intentions" will win through despite 2,500 years of history Govt has only ever been wielded by a cabal of lazy corrupt parasites and has always been nothing other than a destructive negative force in both the economy and society.

Wishful thinking aside how does monopolising power in an ingrained beauracracy/elite engender freedom of the people it governs GW? 

Govt wages war on its people and peoples of other lands.. that's the history of Govt is it not? .....but, but, but that's what you ordered when you gave some people all the power isn't it?

I presume you never answer me because you have your head buried in the sand praying for good intentions and wishful thinking to win through GW

GW, i'd recommend all students of Schizophrenia read your articles.

On the left we have Mr G.W. Reality who writes about the real corruption, ineptitude and ignorance of Govt and on the right we have Mr G.W. Philosopher humming a mantra he believes in, the new religion of Govt, the political erection of a new God in society, to Lord-it over society for the goodness of us all

When are you going to lock your 2 personalities in a room and let them both have it out, only 1 to walk out?

You have 2,500 years of conclusive, rock hard evidence small, State and national Govt does not work for the benefit of anyone but the cabal of lazy thieving tossers that inhabit this stinking rotten institution

But you still 'believe' in it, no matter that not a single Dept of any Govt in any country in history has ever doen anything correctly, profitably and come up roses. The Govt harvest stinks and fails miserably every year. Everything Govt touches turns to crap, but no matter, GW still believes a few deckchairs just need a little re-arranging

Like Ron Paul you need to stop dribbling the tired old words of the Founding Frothers like the mantra of a religion, face reality and stop believing in crap that doesn't work, has never worked and will never work

Understand the problem is you do not rest monopoly authority in anything or you're asking for trouble... and why do any of us need 'governing' anyway? You still wearing nappies GW? Can't manage life without the false premise/promise Da Govt will be there for you, thieving our money and never ever spending it to good effect but with entirely corrupt intentions

Oh another bloody murderous (illegal) war, and another $500m down the toilet on another public-private sham like growing crops for energy, Solyndra, trains, a bridge to nowhere ...find a politician in 2,500 years that's spent our money better than society (a free market) would ...find a politician that can guide any one of us through our lives

politicians are socio-economically illiterate, they can do nothing better than a free society or a free market  ...stop believing in garbage GW, the Church is totally rotten, the Founding Frothers were philisophical windbags and not realists

so get your dribbling philosophical side humming a 200 year old belief system into a room with the realist in you who can see Govt for what it is, a bunch of lazy thieving parasites living off the back of society. Thump the philosopher on the nose and wake him from his dumb zombie stupour would ya

"...indiscriminately kills innocent civilians..."

Not really. The American military no longer exists from a command perspective. We have a CIA Cut Out and puppet president along with senior generals saying they take their orders from the U.N.

When ‘U.S. soldiers’ are killed in Heroinistan the phony news now reports them as ‘NATO’ casualties.

The machine is now sorting out the young and dumb in the Army and Marines finding the ones that will work in the “Homeland” to kill American citizens and /or load them up to go to the detention camps. These idiots sign the ‘secret papers’ and pledge to keep their mouths shut. In return they get extra pay. Its all High Treason.

The U.S. Government Branches have been captured. The Executive Office Drag Queen Bride well defines the satanic reality at hand. Anyone following the new world order(s) at hand are an enemy to everyone and a clear and present danger. The Legislative branch is a den of corrupt vipers. The American government has reach the point where the people have no choice but to remain silent and captured or dissolve this current government and restore order. This cannot be done the old way, with violence. This fact is the fulfillment of prophecy, meaning we are overcome. All that is left is for people to divest and stand fast. Even then, Rosemary's Baby Care does not even allow for an escape from the mark of the socialist government fascist beast. Our freedom and independence from government tyranny cannot even be known by those that would resist the contempt of those that have accepted this mark of contempt. What shall the government pukes do now but hunt down the few that shall never provide labor for this corrupt government in the name of the new order so called tax. We can divest their Fiat debt notes all we want from their banks etc..., but this new order requires your name and the social security number bound to Rosemary's Baby Care. Now the techknowledgey defines even voice recognition sealed with your account number etc... There is no escaping SkyNet now and the Sumpreme Court Citezens United image that has been caused to speak. Next thing you know the assholes will be on the Temple Mount looking to the beast for atonement and forcing all, rich and poor, free and bond, to pay tribute through the system tax stemming from such contempt for life and the mercy of God in Christ. That is the usual suspects goal, and to have the prophetic false peace sealed with Israel and all the nations. Who could image such a thing without a massive weapon of mass destruction slaughter event(s) come upon this generation by way of Iran?

To Hell with every bastard that dares to enforce the Executive, Legislative and Judicial Branch calls at this point. If you do, may you burn in Hell for having accepted the mark of the beast, and you shall. 'Til this government is taken down, this is war. The Iran tool is yet another perfect capture, which forces orders to be inline with the corrupt and fascist calls against citizens. Iran is not relevent in that light, though the Mahdi meatheads are being used perfectly, we must not be so weak minded as to let that keep our hearts and mind clouded as to what is going on.

To every government puke out there, you are being armed to keep people who refuse to provide labor for you and you family under this fascist government. You have no honor and are scum if you continue to allow the spirit of the Constitution to be destroyed by the Suicide Vampire Squid and the usual suspects that have errected obelisks in cities all over the world and placed their occult pyramid mark upon their debt note next to the words ''In God We Trust''. Their god is evil and a lair. The words of Lloyd Blanfeind ''we are doing (g)ods work'' come from an antichrist and a market maker theif. ''They'' are the usual suspects and an enemy of mankind and are obviously lawless scum that are able to capture the entire global market they have established in their own image. They shall perish soon enough. Jekyll Island in deed...

Take care, and do no harm. Let us not be tempted to violence by their offer(s), but, it is our duty to resist them always. Their borderless robot world of algo wonders and their Great Wal Mart of China socialism defines the fact that it does not matter anymore who you are or what country we are from, (if you consider all of history has been based on enslaving man and slaughtering man in order to claim dominion) we are all equal in this war against the evil bastards and those that have accepted their mark of contempt. Mankind has just reached the point of revelation where we know the foolishness of the weak and violent bastards that have established the United Nations through lines drawn by wars that have brought us to this point and religious claims created for the same global cause defined by the occult and foolish idiots. Be it through the sword or control over information, through secrets and knowledge used to corrupt and guide events, we now have the light of information shed upon this generation like never before. This makes our time the most dangerous time ever and as there is now no way to secure our freedom and lives as a result of those evil fools that mean to keep man enslaved anyway they can in order to maintain their stronghold over the world and their power. The Usual Suspects have mapped out their will based on slaughtering the image of God in Christ and the coming events seen in this light will be clear. We are witnessing the full revelation coming to pass and the fall of those that have rejected the sustaining mercy.

We're all underdogs here.

George Washington... tsk tsk tsk... there you go again, poking at the gently sleeping unwashed. 50% of Americans [those on welfare and the chunk of them committing welfare fraud as a way of life] will never even hear this prattle even if you were to stand in front of their shiny new 60" Lobotomizer panel and shout it with a bullhorn. The filters are in place, and their only waking thought is how to get more liquor and weed.

Secondly, you Do Realize don't you, that you are now on President Obama's Personal Kill List - something he is awfully fond of.  He puts a tick mark by your name then goes out for another 18 holes, calmly working on his swing while wedding parties full of laughing children are droned down.  God forbid, there may be soon a subcontractor mole writing to us all here using your credentials, while your loved ones wonder wha'happend'

Thirdly, apparently many responding to this article have not taken the time to see lately who it is we put in charge of these neoconlist knockoff nationstates when we're done droning the parties:   Islamist terrorists.  Quadaffi started no wars that I know of and had little debt and protected the fragile minority groups in his fifedom as long as they didn't try to overthrow him.  Those are his crimes against humanity.  It is a crime to not be in permanent debt-slavery to western CB's.  It is a crime to produce a stable sanctuary in the ME.... no stability will be tolerated there except for one small strip of turf along the Med.  Who is left in charge?

Assad hasn't fomented war since he himself has been in power and he has protected the fragile minorities under his care [as has the King of Jordan] including one of our oldest strains of Christendom. Those are intolerable features of governance so Hillary has sent in Al Queda [paid well... mind you] to destabilize the regime by killing ordinary schmucks and harnessing western media to paint it as Assad's calling card.  God bless the Russians and the Chinese who know this script and will not go along with it, apparently at any price.  The outcome is yet determined.

Iraq, Afghanistan? lost to infighting Islamists-in-charge to whom we are paying billions [its running a tab for the bankers... they'll collect later].  Christians all killed or driven over the borders into refugee camps... oops.... they went to Syrian refugee camps protected by Assad's troops.  Guess that bit of humanitarianism is kaput.

This is an interesting film being made to show us where all the political, banking and industrial criminals are leading us to:

 

GRAY STATE is a vision of a dystopian near-future in which abusive government has delivered the coup de grâce to the American life you have known. The last vestiges of the Bill of Rights, the Constitution, and the laws that protect you from

 tyranny have been shredded in a public display of authoritarian power that you enabled through generations of inaction, complacency, and apathy.

Now federalized National Guard patrol the streets while TSA thugs move checkpoints to highways. Militarized police forces funnel your tax dollars into military-grade armored vehicles, surveillance equipment, and weapons for the sole reason of suppressing dissent. Under police state lockdown - under martial law - the Gray State rules. And now the battle turns to the homeland - where American citizens become the targets.

GRAY STATE is the reality that can no longer be ignored. It is coming - by consent or conquest. Official movie trailer lasts 2 min 40 sec:

“Resistance to Tyranny is Obedience to God”

I’ve previously written that real men stand up to fascists:

The fascists’ view of masculinity is that — to be a real
American man — you have to rally around the “strong leader”, you have
to talk tough about the “war on terror”, you have to get pleasure out
of watching “our team” (the sole superpower) beat the stuffing out of a
bunch of third-rate armies like Iraq and Afghanistan.

 

Are they right? Well, psychologists tell us that rallying around the authoritarian leader is actually a very infantile way to affirm one’s masculinity.

 

Okay, listen up guys. Real men don’t bluster like George W. Bush or Bill O’Reilly.

 

Real men stand up to fascists.

 

Our forefathers stood up to the British king and fought for our
freedom. Our forefathers stood up to tyrants and won their liberty and
freedom.

 

THAT’s what masculinity really means. That’s where the pedal hits the metal and the rubber meets the road. It is the dictators running our country who are the danger, who are stealing the future from us, and our kids, and our grandkids.

 

Come on, buddy . . . stop posing. And start acting like a real man.

 

“If you’re really a patriot, you will defend the constitution.
If you’re a coward, you’ll defend the elite who want to subvert it.
Real men stand up to fascism. Cowardly men become boot lickers.”

- Chris D

 

“Most Americans aren’t the sort of citizens the Founding Fathers
expected; they are contented serfs. Far from being active critics of
government, they assume that its might makes it right.”
- Joseph Sobran
 
***

 

Of course, real women stand up to fascists, also.

 

People of faith stand up to fascists as well.

 Thomas Jefferson said:

Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God.

Susan B. Anthony – one of the leading crusaders for women’s rights – said at her sentencing hearing based on her conviction for illegally voting:

I shall earnestly and persistently continue to urge all
women to the practical recognition of the old revolutionary maxim, that
“Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God.”

Nor is the idea strictly a Christian idea.

The Book of Maccabees – an ancient secular Jewish book purporting to document the events which Chanukah celebrates - is said to contain the same statement.

And see this.

I won't even use the word "Christian" because in Scripture, the word (appears only 3x) was only a term of derision, describing a group of cult-like followers of Christ.

"My Kingdom is not of this world".

No "Scripturalist" (at least one including both Testaments) could ever physically fight or harm any human being for any reason, not even self defense.

"He who saves his life must lose it.  He who looses his life will save it."  "You must be born (spiritually) again."

The only person a Scripturalist could rightfully harm is himself.  Yes, you could only take a bullet for someone else.

"I teall you again, my Kingdom is not of this world." 

It's the god-forsaken scum of the earth, the descendents of the Rabbis who murdered Christ, who introduce this leavening into the bretheren of killing for Christ.  

Christ talking to the Ioudiaos Pharisees: "You brood of vipers" (offspring of serpents...see the serpent who tempted Eve).  "Your father is the devil."  "Flesh and blood can not inherit the Kingdom of God."  "Flesh (DNA, Judaism) profiteth nothing."  "Your father is the devil."  "Your father is the father of lies."  "God is able to raise up children of Abraham even from these stones." (spiritual children).

"Flesh begats only flesh, spirit begats only spirit."

The Rabbis teach only a sick, perverted bunch of lies.  The Rabbis own the so-called Christian pastors.  They all lie.

How much does flesh profit?  "Flesh profiteth nothing."

"A new Jerusalem, not built with hands."

"A time is coming, and now is, when those who worship me shall not worship on this mountain nor in Jerusalem."  Worship (Gk. proskuneo) is not in the temporal realm any more.  There is no more worship in any "house of god", I spit on this concept from the mouth of Satan.  There is no such thing as a holy time or place, all lies from Satan.  

Definition of Judaism, Michael Hoffman: "The worship of the Judaic male as god." 

Daily Rabbinical prayer, for all you stupid goyim, especially stupid female goyim:

"Thank you g_d you did not make me a slave, a woman, nor a gentile."   

James Sobran definition of anti-semite: "Not someone who hates Jews, but rather someone hated by certain Jews."

"I want to think all this is a mistake," said a bewildered Khalid al-Mihammadi, 24, a computer programmer from Mecca who was named wrongfully in an early list of hijackers released by the U.S. Justice Department. "We are America's friends, and they do this to us. It isn't fair."

Al-Mihammadi, who spent nine months studying English in the U.S., said he was watching television at home when shaken friends saw his photograph on the news and began to call to see if he was still alive.

'It makes no sense,'' his uncle, Jamal Jarrah, said in a telephone interview from the village of Al-Marj, Lebanon, recalling that two days before the hijacking, his nephew called and told the family he'd be coming home for a cousin's wedding in mid-September. ''He said he had even bought a new suit for the occasion.''

"I'm still to this day amazed that he could have flown into the Pentagon," the former [Flight Academy] employee said. "He could not fly at all."

On Sepember 16 it was reported that Hanjour's name was not on the passenger manifest of Flight 77 because he may not have had a ticket. How was Hanjour able to board the plane if he didn't have his name on the manifest or a ticket? If Hanjour's name wasn't on the manifest and he didn't have a ticket there can be no record whatsoever of Hanjour boarding Flight 77, so how did the FBI know he was on the plane?

http://whatreallyhappened.com/WRHARTICLES/hijackers_flt_77.html

 

SAUD Is. FRAUD

Because the IDs used by the hijackers were phony, we cannot know who they really were or who they really worked for. But what is apparent is that those who planned the hijackings and the 9/11 attacks went out of their way to leave plenty of clues pointing to citizens of middle eastern Arab nations. Many of the investigators believe that some of the initial clues that were uncovered about the terrorists' identities and preparations, such as flight manuals, were meant to be found. A former high-level intelligence official told me, "Whatever trail was left was left deliberately—for the F.B.I. to chase."

We don't know who planned 9/11 attacks.

But we do know who they wanted us to think they were.

We do know who they intended America to blame for the attacks.

 

FRAUDS "R" US

Barbara and Ted. Ted and ____ ?

This is a story about a little white lie that bred dozens of other little white lies, then hundreds of bigger white lies and so on, to the point where the first little white lie must be credited as the “Mother of All Lies” about events on 11 September 2001. For this was the little white lie that first activated the American psyche, generated mass loathing, and enabled media manipulation of the global population.

. . . The little white lie was about Barbara Olson, a conservative commentator for CNN and wife of US Solicitor General Ted Olson. Now deceased, Mrs Olson is alleged to have twice called her husband from an American Airlines Flight 77 seat-telephone, before the aircraft slammed into the Pentagon. This unsubstantiated claim, reported by CNN remarkably quickly at 2.06 am EDT [0606 GMT] on September 12, was the solitary foundation on which the spurious “Hijacker” story was built. Without the “eminent” Barbara Olson and her alleged emotional telephone calls, there would never be any proof that humans played a role in the hijack and destruction of the four aircraft that day . . .

“Barbara Olson, a conservative commentator and attorney, alerted her husband, Solicitor General Ted Olson, that the plane she was on was being hijacked Tuesday morning, Ted Olson told CNN. Shortly afterwards Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon"
 - - -
“Ted Olson told CNN that his wife said all passengers and flight personnel, including the pilots, were herded to the back of the plane by armed hijackers. The only weapons she mentioned were knives and cardboard cutters. She felt nobody was in charge and asked her husband to tell the pilot what to do.”
- - -
"In a poignant remembrance at the Justice Department, U.S. Solicitor General Theodore Olson referred to "the sufferings we have all experienced." He made no direct reference to the death of his wife, Barbara Olson, who was a passenger aboard the American Airlines flight that crashed into the Pentagon…” Regarding the same event, Fox News reports that, extraordinarily, Deputy Attorney General Larry Thompson then said Barbara Olson's call, made "in the midst of terrible danger and turmoil swirling around her," was a "clarion call that awakened our nation's leaders to the true nature of the events of Sept. 11."

Guess what pal,
Muslims are fascists and they want wipe Western Civilization off the face of the Earth and replace it with Sharia Law and posting historical quotes won't stop them.
Military action will.
Dictators have kept the Jihadists somewhat under control but now the Middle East is turned upside down as the Muslim Brotherhood rises to power and the balance of power of the whole world is shifting.

So pull up a chair and see what a world without US intervention looks like.

Maybe it is better to stand on one's feet and see what a world with US intervention looks like.

Because it is the current situation.

Funny how easily US citizens convince themselves that the muslim spring happened without some backstage work by US citizens.

When they so obviously funded it and also militarily intervened so to install their puppets...

The poor, dumb, imbeciles here in McDonald's Nation believe everything they watch on television.  When the network clowns say Bush overstepped his authority for any number of reasons, all the non thinkers were up in arms.  Now we have a "left wing radical socialist" running the war machine. In reality, Obama has personally taken the middle eastern war to unheard of levels with weaponized drones indiscriminately slaughtering Muslims who are in his way.  The war maniac Obama and his cohorts are to the right of Atilla the Hun.  BUT NO ONE SAYS A WORD!!!  

Obama is a pawn to the corporate elitists and the Chicago power brokers. Nothing more/nothing less.

Politicians will prove the undoing of this once great nation.  The overstuffed, texting while driving, under educated, McDonalds eaters that continually elect the no account morons that rob us blind are equally guilty.

Maybe I'm a miserable sod but it'll all come home to roost.
With European demographics showing a 25% Islamic birth rate it's going to be about 25 years before Saudi Arabia starts giving ''assistance' to the jihadi freedom fighters in Europe.
Civil war
USA by then? Who knows.

Normans, not French! The cultural difference can still be seen today.
Germans in the 18th? I'm confused about this...

Yes correct, normans vs saxons, we invited the hanoverian family to send us a royal ruler in the 18th as we had 'misplaced' ours, lizzy is his latest descendant, she's actually of german stock.

Last invasion ever of the british isles was feckin hilarious.

Guns and ammo were sent on seperate ships to the troops!

Frankly douchebag, I would have hoped that the sarcasm in my original post would have been apparent to even the low functioning. However, I can see by your response that I should have used an emoticon.
