Warriors Against Transgression 

We are often faced with people who have no regard for human life and who transgress against us. They occupy land that doesn't belong to them and they devastate it with logging, mining, polluting etc. They go as far as to pour toxins into people's water supplies and poison entire communities without any regard for children and people overall. Often when warriors go and physically stop them from doing their illegal activity, the warriors are labeled as terrorist. The media companies are usually in favor of the big companies devastating land that they have no right to. Reporters for these bogus media companies know how to ask questions and make comments portraying the defenders of human life as terrorists while they portray themselves as independent journalists.

It is important to have a clear understanding of the plan and not to allow oneself as a warrior to cross a boundary that should never be crossed no matter how desperate the situation may be. The media feeds on such things. One shouldn't give them reason to feed on that. Today anyone using means out of the means permitted by the government to prevent evil action is considered terrorist and can be killed by the police or military. The double standard here is that if warriors use physical presence to secure a location and physically prevent illegal logging, mining, toxic waste dumping or any such activity they are labeled terrorists yet security service or establishment doing the same or even being brutal are not labeled terrorists. It is important that the warriors know how to answer the reporters from the bogus media establishments and point out that the ones using intimidation and fear as a means of achieving a goal are the companies transgressing and the establishments backing them through the police, army, bogus media etc. Transgressing against people and intimidating them with jail sentences is no different from terrorists who use intimidation and fear as a means of achieving goals.

When warriors due to growing desperation and lack of guidance cross boundaries of conduct that must never be crossed, then they give the media a reason to label than as terrorists and they loose credibility. Chechnya is a small former Soviet Republic in the Russian Federation that gained independence from Russia and then lost it's independence again to Russia due to bad leadership and Russian imperialism. Shamil Bashayev was a commander of the Chechen resistance against the Russian occupation and during the independence he was a military officer. He gained sympathy from many Russians and eastern Europeans as well as some Western Europeans. When fighting broke out the second time in Chechnya Russians shelled his house killing his wife and children. The leadership in Chechnya split and Russians killed a number of their leaders using long range missiles and tracking devices. A group of Chechen surrendered to Russia and the difficulties of a guerilla resistance grew. Shamil Bashayev and his men resorted to desperate measures what many saw as terrorist activity. Their sympathizers in Russia and in European countries didn't see a future for Shamil Bashayev and his men. Shamil Bashayev got killed on June 10 2006 apparently in an accidental explosion. From this we can see how easy it is in a difficult situation to overstep boundaries that should not be overstepped. We can also see here how one looses credibility and loses sympathy of the common people who recognize the injustice one is struggling against.

Besides keeping within the boundaries of correct conduct warriors need a good leadership. Bosnia is a former communist republic in Southern Europe. During the 1990's Bosnian communist from Muslim background were being ethnically cleansed by Christians and communists from Bosnia as well as various European countries. In the 1990's during the ethnic cleansing in Bosnia a group of Bosnians claiming to be Muslims established a military unit within the Bosnian army. Their leader Mahmoud Karalich was representing Islam and Islamic justice. Many Muslims from Muslim countries joined his unit as volunteers. In his unit he had two Algerian volunteers who were disobedient. They would argue and fight and spill food on the ground out of anger and behave inappropriately. He then had them executed applying communist military rules. His applying of communist military rules was contradictory to Islamic rules that he was claiming to stand for. Under Islamic law that he claim to be representing, he could have told the two disobedient Algerian volunteers that theirs type of services were not needed and could have asked them to leave and go back to Algeria instead of having them executed applying communist military rules on them. Mahmoud Karalich lost credibility with Muslims and later he ended up on trial for violations of human right. Just like individual warriors the warrior leaders need to adhere to the principals that they stand for otherwise they loose credibility.

In all situations regardless if they are war situations of civil disobedience acts, warriors and their leaders need to adhere to rules and principles that they stand for. They need to have a clear view of what their agenda is and to be able to let everyone know about it. One always needs to keep in mind that transgressing of any kind defeats the purpose of trying to stop transgression.
