Spinal mount on an Azhanti High Lighting class frontier cruiser from RPG Traveller As a general rule, a space warship is basically a " weapons platform. Single weapons and multi-weapon turrets are mounted on " hardpoints " or "weapon stations.
Many hide the truth because it is too raw, unpalatable, uncomfortable or outright horrifying. It is vitally important we watch our language, because it plays a great part in how we shape our world and in how we create our reality.
Political correctness is a great example of how language control, thought control and doublespeak can be introduced to an entire population without people realizing they are being deceived and manipulated. Below is list of the top 20 modern Orwellian doublespeak terms, with the first half focusing on military and geopolitical terms.
Orwellian Doublespeak Terms 1: It has largely been invented and hyped to provide an excuse for the NWO New World Order manipulators to override things like human rights, natural law and the Constitution domestically, as well as invade, infiltrate and overthrow other nations abroad.
Who is exactly in the middle of the spectrum on every single issue? Are you an extremist? Orwellian Doublespeak Terms 3: Those guys are not terrorists; they are freedom fighters or moderate rebels!
Ethnic Cleansing Ethnic cleansing is another horrific example of doublespeak.
Since when did mass murder have anything to do cleaning or cleansing? This is a total inversion of reality. Orwellian Doublespeak Term 5: Orwellian Doublespeak Term 6: Extrajudicial Killing Just like the above 2 terms, extrajudicial killing is another attempt at adding more words and syllables to a term in the hope of hiding the raw, brutal truth behind it.
We all know it means assassination. Orwellian Doublespeak Terms 7: It is no surprise, then, that they would foster the use of doublespeak terms and policies such as humanitarian intervention a blatant oxymoron and the responsibility to protect R2P.
An intervention is an invasion or pre-emptive attack, and is obviously illegal and unjust — period. The latter trick seems to work almost every time. Orwellian Doublespeak Term 8: How often have we heard that people killed in a raid, strike, incursion, invasion or battle are just collateral damage?
It sounds like a financial asset or a lowly piece of possession. Perhaps the only way hardened military men with a deadened conscience and ability to feel or empathize can function is to make their victims into things.
Orwellian Doublespeak Term 9: As well as to depopulate, we also hear to eliminate, to neutralize, to bump off and to take out.
More dehumanization and the further attempt to sugar coat killing and make murder more palatable. Orwellian Doublespeak Term Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, Intelligence Government is the seat of control, so of course we can expect its name to reflect doublespeak deception.
I suppose Department of Attack is not PR-friendly enough. Intelligence is information about a potential enemy gained through spying, but is it really smart or wise to go around making enemies, first in your mind and then in the world?
Military intelligence is another oxymoron. Is spying real intelligence? What about emotional intelligence? The heart is bigger and more powerful than the brain … More doublespeak: We always use it.
When from Europe someone criticizes Israel, then we bring out the Holocaust.The United States Navy is working on a rail gun. As the navy puts it, The EM Railgun launcher is a long range weapon that fires projectiles using electricity instead of a chemical propellants.
Hi, i'm having some sort of bug with the damage patches concerning some weapons, mostly the ak74u. Somehow the damage patch ruins the first person iron sights of the ak74 and makes it appear like my "head" is about 6 inches above the sights and the aim is just eyeballing it.
(ed note: this is a commentary about the computer game Children of a Dead Earth). I see a lot of misconceptions about space in general, and space warfare in . But there are still some weapons the rest of the world doesn't have.
Weapons like the MQ9 Reaper Drone, the Laser Avenger and the ADAPTIV cloaking give U.S. troops the advantage on any battlefield. Join now to read essay Modern Weapons Seem to Hide More Dangers Than the Weapons of the Past Did Human beings have been using weapons since the time they lived in caves.
The power of weapons has increased along the history of mankind. Orwellian Doublespeak Term # WMD (Weapons of Mass Destruction) Why talk about WMDs (Weapons of Mass Destruction) instead of just saying, in a more straightforward manner, chemical weapons or nuclear weapons? The US has more WMDs than anyone.
The UK has a lot too, and Israel its sitting on what some think is a strong undeclared nuclear arsenal in the volatile Middle East.
