Epigraph: And the sign said: “The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls / And tenement halls / And whispered in the sound of silence” – The Sound of Silence (Original Version from 1964)
“LABRAT KNATS!” Are these the “words of prophets”? Or the tools and weapons of the “hybrid wars”?
I tried to understand the hypothetical meanings (this process may also be called the “semantic analysis”, “hermeneutic interpretation”, etc.), of the “message of crime”, in the four recent “accidents” suspicious for “terrorism”, within the context of the crime scenes and the circumstances of these episodes, and I came to the conclusion that all of them can be viewed as the “performance crimes or acts”, conceptually within the realm of the “Performance Arts” phenomena. These “message crimes” are committed largely for the sake of broadcasting the “criminal” message, with the purposes of intimidation, warning, “punishment”, propaganda, etc. These are the crimes for show and documentation, designed to be performed with flair and panache; as a movie, drama, story, picture, graffiti, or dreamlike, with the aims to reach the broadest and the most susceptible audience. The broad and intensive media coverage reflecting the fleeting interest of the news-consuming public is the organic feature of these episodes; direct and indirect media manipulations and influencing are also possible. The use of these “accidents” as the broad communication tools, subject to interpretations, within the large and disparate criminal groups, is also a possibility. Many other previous “accident” episodes do fit this structural pattern of the “message crimes”.
The four recent episodes under analysis are: 1) The “LABRAT KNATS!” – Tacoma WA train derailment and 2) “GHOSTSHIP” fire in Oakland CA, with the graffiti as the backdrop for the scenes in these two episodes, 3) Las Vegas (“Manda-lay-bay”) shooting crime scene, and 4) the Manhattan track “accident” episode. They all have three components for the overall interpretations of their meanings, in variously predominant degrees: 1) the visual: picture, graffiti, 2) the action, drama, story, or 3) the verbal-linguistic component. The conceptualization of these “message crimes” typology might be helpful in their investigations by generating new hypotheses, leads, ideas, and understanding. The correct interpretation of the “message of the crime” is the key to the understanding of these crimes as the phenomena and their analyses, which in turn benefits the successful investigations of these “crimes for the sake of transmitting and broadcasting the messages”.

M.N.: My answer to one of the “many riddles of the Sphinx“, as directly opposed and logically connected with the traditional but implied answer of Oedipus (“Man”), is: “Society, Culture, State, Country”, etc., etc. The human societies as biosocial organisms pass through their own stages of development: from four to two, to “three legs”, but they usually “speak in one voice”. This “one voice” part is the essential and the inalienable part of the riddle that cannot be omitted or excluded. It changes everything in its meaning and its interpretations.
The idea and the ideological precepts of “America in decline”, in its “three-legged” devolution phase is the predominant one among many of the Russian politicians and political thinkers, including the military and the intelligence circles. More the reaction of the offended egos than the reflection of the truth, this idea nevertheless, is fashionable, although it is baseless. Nothing could be further from the truth. Inability to comprehend the American society and its processes in depth may lead to the practical miscalculations and mistakes in practical policies and politics. So much for the “Society and Man” dilemma and its biosocial and historical formulations, mis-formulations, solutions, and mis-solutions.
Oedipus Rex gave the wrong answer. He was allowed to proceed due to the Sphinx’s untimely and mysterious death, possibly from the shock resulting from such an ignorance, but Oedipus was punished for this mistake in the end. He did not see the truth and he blinded himself with his mothers’ dress pin as a suitable punishment for his crime. His mistake was that in his arrogance he did not recognize the importance of the social group as compared with the individual, the predominance of the society and its well-being over the “Man”, even if this man is called a king. Sorry, Rex. You should have seen and known better.
I think, this interpretation “rhymes” (fits in) nicely with the content and the conflict of the play, and viewing the riddles of the Sphinx as essentially unresolved makes the play richer.
Another aspect of the “many riddles” is the analogy and the continuity between the animals and humans: human society descended from the animal herd and shares many of its basic features. For example, when the human crowd was shot at in front of the Las Vegas Sphinx, the stampede might have resulted, and we do not know yet what part of the death tally was caused by the shots, and what part by this hypothetical but very probable stampede.
My overall idea in interpreting this incident is, that the place and the executioner were not chosen randomly and coincidentally, that these choices were carefully selected and planned, to contain and to convey the “message”. And this message, or the “many messages”, just like the riddles of the Sphynx and their various interconnected answers, and the interpretations of these “messages”, might be quite complex.
Does this complexity reflect the complexity of the author of this incident and the complexity of his (unlikely “her”) personality? This is a separate question. Hopefully, we will learn, who this “Sphynx” is. Semyon Mogilevich, for example, might be one of the candidates for this historical role, it looks like; as one of the heads of the Russian Mafia. We should consider a broad spectrum of other actors too, including The Boss himself, the vain V.V.P.
Besides and above all other mental associations, the place and the scene of this tragedy do ring with the ancient archetypal memories and the practices of human sacrifice, and the rejecting, self-righteous accusations and criticism: “You worship your Sphinx, your Idols of games, pleasures, excesses, and self-indulgence”. The tone of this murderous hypothetical sermon might sound familiar.
This place and scene would have a quality of the mass spectacle, have it not been so real.
And this feature of the Las Vegas and other mass shootings induces, in turn, some thoughts about their possible authorship. The questions arise about the hypothetical spectators also, especially about the ownership of the prime, front row seats in the adjacent Luxor hotel right above or below the Sphinx, which should be the focus of continuous interest on the part of the investigative bodies.

M.N.: “On the far west side of lowerManhattan…”: The symbolism or the symbolic message of this attack appears to be quite clear… | Manhattan truck attack of 10.31.17 and Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov – News Review
M.N.: The symbolism or the symbolic message of this attack appears to be clear: “The US is like a rented truck speeding down the bicycle lane, after taking a left turn South from Houston (Oh, “how stoned!”) Street onto the West Side Highway (“My way or the highway” – the so-called Reagan Doctrine), with its anti-Russia sanctions (recently expanded against the Russian military-intelligence complex and signed by Trump after four weeks of delay), killing the “innocent victims” (of these sanctions) along the way, and then brandishing two toy (or false, pellet and paintball) guns: apparently the reference to the two recent indictments of Paul Manafort and Rick Gates by the Mueller’s Investigative team. It also contains a threat, just like all the other episodes of this kind, of the future attacks and calamities. This chain of reasoning and the interpretation of the presumed symbolic message of this incident is pretty much consistent with the comments of the Russian officialdom on their implicit indictments in Mr. Mueller’s actions, to which they hurried to plead non-guilty, following their traditional and quite an easy dictum: “Deny, deny, deny.”
My hunch: Attacks by Uzbek immigrants appear to be disproportionally frequent, which might point to the possible but still hypothetical role of the organizer in the person of “Руслан Саидович Садулаев” who carries and uses many other names, and is reportedly the head of the GRU (Military Intelligence) of Uzbekistan. Presently, he reportedly resides in Turkey, although everything surrounding him and his comrades in “FarWest” is a deep mystery and very likely disinformation. Be all this as it may, it would be very helpful to extract this individual from wherever he is and to try to get the information out of him, which might be rich.
FBI, wake up and start working on all of this in honest. You cannot avoid dealing with this old and painful issues of “The FarWest Group”, their possible and many crimes, including the 9/11, their many and sophisticated covers, and their real, non-ending threat and disruptions. Do not walk endlessly around the bush, get the mf-s and investigate these connections in utmost depth. These people are specially and very well trained, professional high-level military intelligence officers. They are utterly dedicated “to the course” (whatever this course is), and judging from the past episodes, their audacity and brazenness are boundless. Do prevent the next looming disaster.
I have a feeling that Col. Poteyev who was an early member of this group, shared a lot of valuable information.
The whole approach to the investigations of the mass killing episodes has to be reviewed. New, smart, decisive actions have to be taken.
M.N.: Some other issues: Who exactly are the Argentinians in Manhattan truck attack, are there any connections between them and any significant recent events of interest? These might be completely the side issues, but it is worth to explore them.
“Five of the dead were Argentine tourists, visiting New York as part of a group of friends celebrating the 30th anniversary of their high school graduation, the government there said. Belgium’s foreign minister said a Belgian citizen was also among those killed.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said police will be out in force to protect the city’s marathon on Sunday, one of the world’s top road races, which draws some 51,000 runners from around the globe.
“You’ll see a lot of officers with long guns. Other things you won’t see that are protecting us,” he told MSNBC.”

If you admit the hostile special intelligence operations nature of the mass killings as the hypothesis, then all the sociological and the statistical studies become irrelevant.
4:28 PM 11/7/2017 – The Root Causes of Mass Shootings in the U.S., in my opinion – M.N. | NYT Shows How Not to Analyze Mass-Shooting Data – National Review
If you admit as the hypothetical explanatory option the hostile special intelligence operations nature of the mass killings, and it is impossible not to consider this scenario as “an”, if not “the” (in majority of cases) explanation, then all the sociological and the statistical studies become irrelevant, just as the gun ownership explanatory theory, which is indeed false, in my opinion. This latter factor might be contributing but not the root cause, and not the main causal factor in the modern-day U.S. culture.
But the good thing is that we started to ask these questions and started to look for the answers. We should not let the conceptual stereotypes to cloud our judgment. One of such stereotypes, regarding “Al Qaeda”, started to crumble before our eyes: “21 Years of War with Al Qaeda?”
The so-called “ISIS” probably is the next in line of the abandoned illusions in waiting.
- “I did also call him” “Ishmael”, but we did not want to see this phenomenon, and we still do not want to face it, as most logically it is, which is the current state of de facto hybrid or intelligence war of deep and multi-dimensional deception with Russia and her overt and covert allies. Not an easy situation but not the reason for despair. Now, when the picture becomes clearer, all sorts of the proper questions will be asked, and all sorts of the proper answers will be sought. I think, one of the concerns might be the effects of the excessive liberal or conservative slants or biases, which apparently can be equally harmful and can enhance the security vulnerabilities by rocking the boat too much in either direction. The skillful political balance appears to be the key.
It looks like the beginning of the end of the current wave of the pre-and-post-9/11 historical denial. So much for the powers of the very plausible self-deception: “I do not see it, because I do not want to see it”, just like the good old three monkeys.
I did notice this trend also and mentioned it in one of my previous posts.
The answer: because the planners and the organizers of these attacks do everything to approach the military efficiency in these operations. They do view them as the para-military types of operations. The preferred use of the AR-15 (Kalashnikovs or their modifications) also points in this direction, besides serving the (deadly) commercial advertising purposes.

“We shouldn’t care about “gun murders” or “mass shootings”; we should care about murders in general and mass killings in general, regardless of how they’re accomplished. (Up to a point it’s essentially tautological to claim that more guns translates to more problems with guns, because a society with no guns by definition cannot have any problems with them.) As I’ve noted numerous times before, there is no simple, consistent correlation between gun ownership and murder or homicide rates in general, either among developed countries or among U.S. states. More sophisticated studies face a variety of serious methodological obstacles — I don’t find any of them that compelling — and have reached varying conclusions. The research on mass shootings in particular is in an even more primitive state.”

Worldwide, Mr. Lankford found, a country’s rate of gun ownership correlated with the odds it would experience a mass shooting. This relationship held even when he excluded the United States, indicating that it could not be explained by some other factor particular to his home country. And it held when he controlled for homicide rates, suggesting that mass shootings were better explained by a society’s access to guns than by its baseline level of violence.
from the times of the Washington Navy Yard Shooting of 2013, that the persons – subjects of the FBI COINTELPRO, were brought into the psychotic or quasi-psychotic state by these technics, are picked up after that by the hostile intelligence services (the Russians are the prime suspects, of course) and somehow recruited or pushed to commit mass murders. This scenario might imply some degree of cooperation, or “collusion” between the FBI (most likely the moles) and these hostile services. Would the FBI be willing to investigate this hypothesis in honest? I very much doubt it: they are not even willing to acknowledge that the various instances of the mass killings, although without apparent or discernable motivation in the overwhelming majority of cases, might be the product of the hostile intelligence activities. FBI, I think that you should acknowledge this, and you should investigate this hypothesis in honest.
- It is the well-known fact that the FBI tends to minimize or to deny the problems if it cannot understand, explain, or solve them. “In fact, the agency has blundered many terrorism investigations and thus jeopardized the security of Americans.”
Besides that, the designations of “terrorism vs. no terrorism” became almost meaningless, in large part because they imply the motivation factor which is always difficult or impossible to determine. The better term might be: the largely unmotivated group killings and accidents as
- “Crime or Hate Crime Messages”.
Any crime is a message and a sick one. But the “message crimes” proper have their own distinct characteristics. Very often they are staged and documented: filmed, photographed, as the acts of the Performance Arts, for the show, to enhance their appeal and reach. The main purpose of the “message crimes” is to convey the message, as a threat, intimidation, punishment, or more recently as “Propaganda“. It is also possible that these types of the messaging systems became the mode of central communications for the large and dispersed criminal networks. They were practiced throughout the history from the times pre-biblical.
This conceptualization and typology might be helpful in the investigations of these type of crimes and their resolutions and prevention, by generating the new ideas and leads.

M.N.: Aind zis iz the strictly digital interpretation, preferring the ephemeral socialist quality in their gay, in all respects, message: Bernie Facebook Russian Propaganda:
The subject avoids the monumentality but the style of this propaganda pieces is remarkably the same: the “coloring book”, as it was called; “for children”, I would add. Because it is the same mode of propaganda, targeting the immature minds and the impressive audiences. This does not imply the same origin, just that the style is similar, that’s in itself is curious enough. Shall we call this the “Biblical style”? The attention of the “art people” among the investigators to this subject might be productive. – M.N. – 12.24.17
