Meet The British Army's 77th Battalion: Mobilizing 1,500 "Facebook Warriors" To Spread Disinformation

The British Army will revive one of the most contentious special forces units of the second world war, the Chindits, as a new generation of “Facebook” warriors who will wage complex and covert information and subversion campaigns.


– From the recent FT article: Army Revives Chindits as ‘Facebook Warriors’ for Smart Battle

Get ready, social media is about to get far more treacherous than it already is. Be extra careful jumping to conclusions, always think for yourself and use your best judgement. Government psy ops are about to go into overdrive.

Gizmodo reported the following:

A new group of soldiers, referred to as “Facebook Warriors” will ” wage complex and covert information and subversion campaigns,” according to the Financial Times. This unit will be named the 77th battalion, whose number also has a historical significance. FT says:


"The original Chindits [77th battalion] were a guerrilla unit led by the swashbuckling British commander Major General Orde Wingate, one of the pioneers of modern unconventional warfare. They operated deep behind Japanese lines in Burma between 1942 and 1945 and their missions were often of questionable success."


These Facebook warriors will be using similar atypical tactics, through non-violent means, to fight their adversary. This will mainly be achieved through “reflexive control,” an old Soviet tactic of spreading specifically curated information in order to get your opponent to react in the exact way you want them to. It’s a pretty tricky trick, and the British army will be doing just that with 1,500-person (or more) troop using Twitter and Facebook as a means to spread disinformation, real war truths, and “false flag” incidents as well as just general intelligence gathering.


The 77th battalion will reportedly begin operations in April.

Let’s not be naïve. This sort of shit has been going on for centuries. It was written about by Sun Tzu in “The Art of War” and is on steroids in Century 21.  Anybody who believes otherwise is either burying his head in the sand or a fool.

Facebook, Twitter, Google, Apple ..... the intelligence community’s porn.


Think about George Orwell's three-minute hate from the novel '1984' and how that left everyone sort of exhausted and able to live their boring humdrum lives. If our lives are going to continue being unfulfilled and boring, perhaps we do need some sort of short-term violent chaos incorporated into them, to make them more palatable.

One of Obummer's butt boys, Cass Sunstein, wrote about "cognitive infiltration" of "dangerous conspiracy" movements like 9/11 truth movement to see if they couldn't turn them back to the main stream.

So get this, they FORM a conspiracy to deny their existence....

We've a lot of work to do with our children, people.

What's the Soviet Union?  Oh, yeah, I think I remember, didn't they die a pathetic death about 25 years ago now?

Manipulate and propagandize all they want, the truth is a stubborn bastard!

A waste of british tax money. those that are awake will never go back to sleep. Soviet psyops worked better when tightly controlled print media was the main source of information. The best these troglodytes can manage are basic trolling comments. Desperation in the face of an awakening human race.

A fucking joke with a british accent.  What enemy is going to be misdirected by facebook and twitter bullshit?  As if every 1st grader didn't know that information was useless rumor, ads and pet stories.

Personally I have never had a account on either.  Why bother?

Cog Dis' discussion on his site about disinformation will make you see that there's more bullshit out there than honest info.


It's called controlled debate.  Set up two arguement points, counter to each other, then let people get sucked into the vortex it creates.  So much momentum gets created, the actual issue is virtually ignored.  Mission accomplished.

Where the heck is our resident "Chindit"?

Well, well, well. The iPhone has backdoor software keys for the NSA, Facebook is run by noneother than George Soros' grandson, no self-respecting IT manager will allow Google or gmail on the networks they manage, and really does need a life if you spend time there. So, when will the rest of the sheeple wake up when they've grown tired of bread and circuses?

It was two minutes, but we get the point.

Perhaps they have increased the dosage?

How will we ever spot the their colourful British patter among the otherwise gray theatre of the absurd dialogue that we have here at Zero Hedge?

They're actually German. Changed name to Windsor to fool a lot of folks in 1917.

They are slimy. They monitored US communications before the NSA did, and Congress passed CALEA.

TeethVillage88s's picture

My Impression: They only announce these things quiet some time after they have already been running these ops on a black budget...

The announcement might be some kind of cover for the .gov budget as they make it a real budget... or they can chose to use the money to start other programs in the black budget area... since they are gaining funding, right?

We are talking NSA, GCHQ ops. Logically, they likely are shifting funds over to Domestic spying analysis which is whee the real shortfall is, right?

RadioactiveRant's picture

The way it works is GCHQ (UK) monitor foreigners (inc US citizens) and give it to the NSA, the NSA monitor foreigners (inc British citizens) and give it to GCHQ. No ones breaking any rules because these agencies were set up to spy on foreigners.

And Israel gets everthing from all of them. What a scam - getting other countries to spy on your behalf, and not having to pay the suckers a single dollar.


The Queen of England is the Whore of Babylon and time is running out for the United Kingdom. The PSYOPS are just impression management

on the part of a dying Empire that is embarrassed that they don't really understand contemporary economics sufficiently to retain their Empire and status throughout the World anymore. The PSYOPS campaign is merely their last ditch attempt to covertly manipulate the masses into believing they are anything but the douchebags they really are. Moreover, the PSYOPS campaign will telegraph their national insecurity for the World just in time to see Prince Andrew get carted off to prison for molesting underaged 'sex slaves'.

They never left.

They just moved from a govt bld to madison ave. and called themselves "ad-men"

If it is printed or broadcast in the US mainstream media, it's propaganda.

More and more "news" outlets are dropping the comment section. No voice of reason or logic can be allowed.

Sound does not travel in a vaccume.

The message MUST be controlled.

Road Hazard's picture

I've noticed that as well. More and more news stations turning off comment sections or you HAVE to login via Facepuke. The main reason I stopped casually visiting Reddit is when Snowden leaked documents that talked about how .gov maggots were infiltrating social media sites to try and steer conversations and two mods in particular, in the news section, TOTALLY BURIED the story (ie, deleted topics regarding it) and did their best to down vote the hell out of it. Their stance was something along the lines of it not really being news related and was just phantasy land conspiracy theory by a disgruntled ex-NSA employee. I circled back a few months ago to read up on things and see if those mods were booted and they were not. Some other mods banned together and created their own sub-reddit to prevent this type of censorship from happening again and a few other mods resigned in disgust as these .gov dick-eating treasonous pieces of garbage were not booted.

Snowden was right on the money. I'm 100% certain dis-information agents are on this site and every other site. It's just so sad that world governments feel the need to run psy-ops against their own citizens and take great joy in spreading fear and carrying out false flag attacks on innocent civilians. The question is, why must they do this?

I long for the day when people like this are hung by the neck until dead for all to see so nobody forgets and it's never, EVER allowed to happen again. Give me ONE, SINGLE, LEGITIMATE reason a government needs to spread fake news and spread fear porn via false flags? And beyond that, what kind of mother f'ing psychotic piece of shit takes a job like that?

Well, spread all the dis-info you want .gov folks but we all know Sandy Hook and the Boston bombing was fake, 9/11 was an inside job, MH370 is sitting in a hangar somewhere just waiting to turn up with a new coat of pain, those two Navy Seals guarding that special cargo on the boat were murdered, and on and on. Might need more people and to do a better job as only the sheep are falling for it.

I recently "awoken" my brother and he sees the world in a whole new light now. He canceled his cell phone, moved out to the middle of nowhere (has a longer commute to/from work) and is talking about paying the penalty and emptying his 401K. After he pays off his last credit card, he's closing all lines of credit and will just pay cash for things or maybe get some prepaid cards for internet ordering or whatnot. I'm so proud of him! He has been spreading the word to his friends. (This site was one of the ones I gave him many, many moons ago.)

Bro, if you see this,..... the Dodge Charger is still waiting for that radiator! :) (Inside joke)

>>>I'm 100% certain dis-information agents are on this site and every other site....

ZHers probably don't need to hear this, but anyone suggesting illegal actions must be considered a government agent, unless proven otherwise. 

At one time, Doug Casey's site ("International Man", I believe) had more than one poster who openly advocated violating US tax laws, or suggested making specific financial arrangements that made no sense unless you intended to violate US law... and offered to help you make such arrangements.  These people seem to have vanished, or at least changed their IDs and become much more subtle.  As it was, they were coming across as retarded government agents, which was close enough to the truth....

Ghordius's picture

+1 "anyone suggesting illegal actions must be considered a government agent, unless proven otherwise"

the technical term, from the 19th Century, is Agent_provocateur

"An agent provocateur (French for "inciting agent") is an undercover agent who acts to entice another person to commit an illegal or rash act or falsely implicate them in partaking in an illegal act. An agent provocateur may be acting out of their own sense of nationalism/duty or may be employed by the police or other entity to discredit or harm another group (e.g., peaceful protest or demonstration) by provoking them to commit a crime - thus, undermining the protest or demonstration as whole."

What do you think all the "Jew" stuff is? It's government agents trying to discredit the site and direct attention away from the establishment. The problem is fractional reserve banking, bankers and their cosy relationship with politicians.

If they can make the site and the posters look like frothing at the mouth nazis their job is done.

The fact that jews run the banks, media, and just about everything else is just a total coincidence, right?
