Roman generals often killed their own troops. The earliest documented 'decimation' occurred in 471 BC.
The Italian General Luigi Cadorna applied decimation to under-performing units during the First World War.
In his book Stalingrad, Antony Beevor recounts how, during the Second World War, a Soviet commander practised decimation on retreating soldiers by walking down the line of soldiers at attention, and shooting every tenth soldier in the face until his pistol ran out of ammunition.
The 1957 movie Paths of Glory depicts a few World War I soldiers randomly selected to be executed as punishment for a failure by their group.
Why would the CIA want to kill American soldiers and blame the killings on Moslems?
"To enrage American troops so that the slaughter continues".
ACCORDING TO FEDERAL JACK (http://www.federaljack.com/?p=19311):
Special forces have been caught pretending to be Arab insurgents running around shooting people in Iraq.
On July 23, 2005, a detachment of 19 female US Marines was sent to Fallujah. A number of them had their throats cut.
Americans were outraged. Islamic clerics insisted that only Israelis could be so cold-blooded. And who was in charge of US forces in Fallujah at the time? None other than Major General Natonski, the Mossad liaison.
According to Richard Wilson, Israeli sniping and roadside bombs (IEDs) are false flag operations.
He says that on March 28, 2005, Americans arrested Mossad agents who fired twice on a US Marine checkpoint.
In 2005 U.S. Marines arrested 16 members of the Zapata Engineering Security Convoy for firing on Marine guard towers.
The Marines beat up the Mossad agents and tore off their Star-of-David necklaces. (The US media incorrectly said the agents were Americans.) The Mossad agents said they were employees of Zapata Engineering, which is a CIA/Mossad front company that conducts interrogations, and also manages US ammo dumps and US motor pools in Iraq.
EXPOSED YOU DIRTY FUCKERS!
