LOCKDOWN COUNTDOWN: THE WAY OF FREEDOM FIGHTERS
This is going to be a showtime for Enemy forces but a technical shutdown for Freedom Fighters. How’s this possible and in what dimension?
Lockdown gives the Enemy state the leverage of a state of emergency without the political retribution for declaring it.
It gives them disproportionate advantage in intelligence gathering, reduces the obstacles on their path for policing and offensives, it cheaply hands them time and material to local threats and identify persons of interest, it disguises their military initiatives with civilian measures aimed at bringing normalcy, but it mocks the legitimacy of LRC acclaimed authority over the people and ridicules its political control mechanisms.
This threat of not being in control and being delegitimized is more than the victory of killing hundreds of Freedom fighters. So, we must resolve to manage the situation for the survival of the Revolution which is more important.
● Trust: The decision to lockdown is from the fighters who have had to put us with all the nonsense and madness. We must support and defend it to convey resourceful sentiments and build trusted relationship.
● Attitude: The fighters must deceased from firing warning shots during this time, except as crucial circumstance dictates.
● Movements: Stop broad daylight crossings and manoeuvres except as strategy strictly demands.
● Adaptation: The fighters must vacate or relocate any base created before the lockdown or change adaptation rules from all sides of their position.
● People: The people must turn down demands of any stranger however legitimate it may seem. Young people must avoid walking in groups of more than two in security risk areas.
● Survival: Even the most sacred of traditions and culture must be jettisoned in already targeted areas. Neighborly spirit should be highest for known community members.
● Politics: This event should chiefly reward solidarity for the Interim president and his cabinet in jail. It should be seen as the very basis for it.
● Engagement: Once again, take up all communication links, vehicle and vessels. Multiply obstacles on the road and add lethal security features or deterrent in larger scales.
● Opportunity: Identify all Enemy stations in all directions from your position, and move with the consciousness of that circle, triangle or square. Pick up their intelligence sources with low baiting.
● Operations: Conduct direct operations from multiple front activities. One for alarm, other for reinforcements and the other for execution.
● Expect distractive signals and baits closer to your position, but don’t react to it without exhausting other options.
● Camouflage: Don’t feed on the political and social atmosphere created by politicians seeking to divert attention or inspire rebellion of the few in a particular community. Go for them after such incidents or ambush them on roads.
● Adherence: Keep to the code, stop the noisy and lousy activities. Expect the worst but hope for the better.
● Subsistence: Don’t create large fire in your temporary base or open combustion. Cook in enclaves and hideouts.
● Negative: Stop horrific video cast for disciplinary measures and don’t get involved in domestic feuds and conflicts.
But, how then would they guarantee 100% effectiveness?
Until Freedom Comes, We Stand Together.
