Snails love quick oblivion.
By now I suspect many anons have watched this video.
I have some decodes that I have not seen posted, so I'll give some basic info for reference.
The video was posted by the US Army's 4th Psychological Operations (PSYOP) Group.
It was posted on May 2, 2022.
It is the only video on a YT channel created on Nov 16, 2021.
I suppose I should question everything and say it was apparently posted by the 4th PSYOP Group.
But excessive skepticism can be paralyzing and I don't have any particular reason to doubt this.
The video is very well-done and has intrigued many.
Here are two extended analyses:
SLAG focuses on the symbolic meaning of the video, giving particular attention to what he identifies as a Japanese noh mask.
Patel Patriot focuses on the place of Psychological Operations within recent DoD strategy, with particular attention to the transition from the Trump Presidency to whatever we should call the Biden… actually I have no idea what word to use.
I suggest reading both discussions.
I am grateful to the authors and to other anons who have put forth ideas on this.
Even images make a difference. (Or especially images…)
I have seen many posts of the ghosts from the video and this made me think about how much it was resonating.
This led me to go back and take a deeper look.
I found a number of things.
I will start with a few clues that were caught by others, and yet were not fully explored.
Let me first post a brief recap on the Ghost Army.
I found it interesting as I don't think I knew all that.
When I first saw references to the Ghost Army, I thought they were about the fake encampments set up in Britain prior to D-Day.
But the Ghost Army was on the move in continental Europe, and their story was only declassified in 1996.
I hadn't realized how much had been previously concealed,
A few links:
My first "decode" is really just a simple elaboration of something observed by writer SLAG (and likely others):
The "Ghost Army" was technically the 23rd Headquarters Special Troops.
But Q decoders know that 23=PAIN.
This might seem so obvious to experienced QR decoders that it isn't worth noting.
But I didn't see either SLAG or Patel Patriot note this fact, nor did I see any of their commenters note it.
It could be that they are intentionally avoiding Q references in order to appeal to a broader audience.
But this is QR and I think this is relevant.
NachoPillow's comment on Patel Patriot did direct me to a useful chronology in the YT comments by Der Jansan and I am posting that here.
I have not double-checked it, and I have scarcely examined most of it, but I can say that I found it a useful resource.
This next decode is also an expansion of some anon remarks.
Two commenters on SLAG observed that the smoke was going backwards.
In such a carefully done video, this must surely be intentional.
I conjecture that it relates to Q's line "Up is down. Left is right."
And the first line of that post is:
We knew this day would come.
I didn't put any words in this graphic, but I hope it is clear.
Here is a timestamped link from the video:
Watch until the darkness hits.
The timestamp is 1:35.
Now look at Q135 and the next three drops.
Who is getting obliterated?
Of course this could be just a coincidence.
Anons have previously determined that the animation sequence in the Ghosts video comes from "Betty Boop in Snow-White".
The entire film is slightly more than seven minutes long, so you can easily watch the whole thing.
Perhaps you can do something with Snow White or [B]etty [B]oop or "made of pen and ink" or St. James Infirmary.
But I want to put aside Q drops for the moment as I think there is a decode here that doesn't hinge on them.
The film was made in 1933.
That is the year Hitler came to power with the support of a deluded minority drunk on propaganda.
(They had reason to be frustrated, as Weimar was a debauched disaster, but frustrated people can be amenable to propaganda.)
Now watch the film.
Betty Boop is Snow White and so she is more beautiful than her evil stepmother.
So the stepmother orders Betty's execution.
Her guards Bimbo and Koko are charged with the dirty deed.
But Betty's beauty leads them to grasp that they are in the service of evil.
They sabotage the execution.
Betty ends up free, but all three end up undergoing further trials.
But good wins in the end.
The crucial turning point in the film is when those in the service of evil realize that they must change sides and actively fight it.
Now think back to the Nazis.
A truly twisted but very small minority was able to do great evil with the help of many who excused themselves by saying they were just doing their jobs.
We have many such people in our world today.
I think the US Army has just issued them a warning.
This decode is a bit more complex and Q-centric.
While I was rewatching the Betty Boop film to prepare the prior post, I noticed that the timestamp on Betty's clock matched one of Q's watches.
I did not add any text to the graphic, but I think it should make sense.
Notice that the two central images with Betty differ by 1 second.
In the second image, the clock is creating quite a loud clamor (look at the guards).
Thus you can see the relevance of Q115.
Also note that Q4072 (upper left) and Q3332 (lower right) are different drops, but with precisely the same text.
I suppose there are some anons who think that a "military" decode should be very serious.
But the Ghosts video itself makes clear that "PSYOP warriors" must be attuned to every facet of human experience.
If the military itself were to directly post Betty Boop cartoons, I bet the Chicoms would laugh at them.
But I'm not in the military and I can do decodes however I want.
I have more posts prepared but I am going to stop and save the next batch until tomorrow.
