Pentagon rewrites ‘Law of War’ declaring ‘belligerent’ journalists as legitimate targets

The rules of engagement have now officially changed even though all through out the 21st century the war has been on journalism as well. It began with the law allowing propaganda in the USA both abroad and upon each citizen. Such of which legalizes false flags with media backing and such of which allows hoaxes to be pushed by mainstream media.

Not only is this a large issue but this will most definitely be a turning point in the war for humanity because of free speech. When mainstream does not speak up the individual citizens do and when the individual citizens speak up they disappear.

This war is far worse than America has faced as we begin to dive further into the Nazi Germany style America rather than the free America God gave us.

Belligerent Journalists are according to the regime ones who speak to openly about the TRUTH. Can’t have us harping on you to much now can we Obama?! The rules of engagement have changed should ours?!

The Pentagon has released a book of instructions on the “law of war,” detailing acceptable ways of killing the enemy. The manual also states that journalists can be labeled “unprivileged belligerents,” an obscure term that replaced “enemy combatant.”

The 1,176-page “Department of Defense Law of War Manual” explains that shooting, exploding, bombing, stabbing, or cutting the enemy are acceptable ways of getting the job done, but the use of poison or asphyxiating gases is not allowed.

Surprise attacks and killing retreating troops have also been given the green light.

But the lengthy manual doesn’t only talk about protocol for those on the frontline. It also has an extensive section on journalists – including the fact that they can be labeled terrorists.

“In general, journalists are civilians. However, journalists may be members of the armed forces, persons authorized to accompany the armed forces, or unprivileged belligerents,” the manual states.

The term “unprivileged belligerents” replaces the Bush-era term “unlawful enemy combatant.”
