Bit of back story.

The CIA created an instruction manual for the Nicaraguan rebels during the second war of revolution. This was because the revolution was essentially a proxy war between the USSR + Cuba and The United States.

>Keep in mind I'm summing up and paraphrasing.

Guerrilla warfare is a war for the hearts and minds of the people, Without population support the movement has nothing.

The first thing to know is that every combatant must be as motivated to spread propaganda as much as he is to fight. He must breathe, eat and sleep the cause.

Because of this, they must know the cause better than anything. Every action they have must be justified and they must be keenly aware of everything it is they are doing. Self-criticism is key to the cause. The must be persuasive and give 5-10 reasons on why, for example peasants should give them cloth, needles and thread to mend their clothes.

When they truly know and love the cause it will give meaning to them in times of pain, hunger, injury. This pain will soon drive them even more.

The second thing to know is psychological impact of showing your guns to the population.

Your guerrilla forces should carry guns in public and let everyone know they are armed, let them know that it is not against them but against the government that oppresses them. These guns are for them!


It's important that when they see your guys with weapons they think "Freedom Fighter!"

However, they will know in the back of their minds that you can shoot them at any time., try your best to not let this happen!

That's why you should choose who comes into those towns very closely and have intelligent people with a good knowledge.

The Third thing to know is how to create "Front" organizations.

You want to create small social movements for good, try to get established people in on your movements. IE:

An organization that gives treatment for malaria, roping in valued doctors and professionals. Really get them and the community involved in these movements, then when you reveal that it's been a clandestine organization all along they'll pretty much have to go along with your side or be shot by the other.

The fourth thing to know is how to control mass assemblies, or how to steer the sheep in a direction.

When there is a town meeting, a union meeting, a group of people assembled in any place, you should use your force of people to use their persuasive force to steer the crowd. If you have 300 people all shouting a slogan, they can give the impression to the crowd that that's the majority and they will likely go along with it.

The fifth thing to know is How to really sink your teeth into local contacts.

Your combat propagandists are the result of hard-fought indoctrination and motivations, the people you recruit along the way, not really as much.

So these doctors, lawyers, priests and professors need some firm reminding of why it is they support your cause. They know better than anyone the pitfalls of the current society they live in, better that you give them motivation as to what your cause would change about these horrible things.

Exploit the weaknesses of the society, promise fixes to the things that need fixed and "whiplash" support into full infiltration of society.

The sixth thing to know how to do is how to positively terrorize the country.

The people in a revolution know that they are under constant danger, it's up to you to show them that the guns you carry are to protect them, not to kill them. The targets of your terror should not be the average citizen but institutional...

  1. Destroy all military and police installations in the area, remove the survivors to a public area.

2. destroy all lines of communication with the outside world in the area you occupy. In modern terms that would mean jamming cellphones too.

3. Set up ambushes for reinforcements.

4. Kidnap all local officials of the current regime and hold them.

5. Publicly shame them, use your slogans and propaganda.

6. Point out their weaknesses, humiliate them.

7. DO NOT HURT THEM IN PUBLIC.

8. State that you will treat them well, despite your suffering out of your generosity.

The seventh thing to know is to make your Guerrilla fighters into gentlemen with the population.

  1. They should pay for everything they use.
  2. Courtesy visits to all important people, be nice to them.
  3. Let the population know about what you're doing, specific details on things like guns used and where you're going even, what your end goals are. When the population is interrogated by the regime they should let them know everything! Even the direction your troops went.
  4. Try to casually bring up informants to the current regime, who they are and whatnot.

>THE BIG SPEECH.

When your forces finally leave the area give the big one. Get your most charismatic person to give the best speech EVER, make sure the following is mentioned.

  • Thank them for their hospitality, let them know you appreciate the risks they take.
  • That the "enemies of the people" or the current regime will, in spite of their many misdeeds not be harmed if they come quietly, because of how generous you are.
  • Promise That you will return and the regime cannot keep us apart, we're brothers!
  • Reveal everything about your plans, because you're not afraid of THEM. that you are fighting for THIS country and not some phoney baloney bullshit.

The final eighth thing to know is that is that if things aren't going as planned you can always threaten to rape the populace in agreeing

  1. The anal linings inside the anus contain some of the most painful nerve clusters

2. People feel very uneasy about having any sized penis penetrating their assholes and the images make people inherently cautious about being raped

3.Rape makes the person willing to do it look like a complete SAVAGE just from the sheer insanity of someone even willing to do such an act, making people even less likely to rebel against a badass ultra-rapist

4.Thats terror

The eighth thing to know is how to get people to be okay with you straight up shooting other people in their goddamn faces.

*I got this gun to protect you babe, not me. I'm doing this for you!
*It's for democracy, babe!
*I don't want to shoot them babe, I have to!
*If I don't have my guns, I can't deal justice babe!

Like, what if some kid fled off into the countryside and you had to shoot him? That's someones kid they're gonna be pissed., here's what you say.

*Babe!, he was gonna tell the cops, I had to shoot his punk ass

*He was an enemy of the people babe!, I would never hurt you, I was protecting you!

  • I didn't want to shoot him, honest! I'm a pacifist when I can be!

  • I didn't kill him it was the regime, babe!

  • Babe, If it wasn't for that stinky regime we wouldn't even be fighting!

Those CIA produced instruction manuals for rebels were popular collectors items at comic cons in the 80s & 90s

There's not much you can do after someone brainwashes you and makes time repeat.
