Lone Wolves: IntroPosted: September 26, 2014
A Homeland Series
A Lone WOLF Serial
The lone wolf is the most dangerous predator on American soil. Or any soil where he treads, domestic or foreign. He is the most feared predator. I speak not of the animal in the wild, but the humans among us. I pluralized the people part because the lone wolf is often mistaken as a sole predator without the company of other operatives. That is only partially (but, mostly so,) correct. As we move deeper into this serial about the lone wolves the reader will develop a growing education of what I am referring. We are in an era where the lone wolf will gain greater coverage in the front-page news and prime-time media discussion. I will present these as part of the Homeland or Homeland Wars series of my works which include, along with the Lone Wolf serial, fiction and nonfiction works, as being scheduled for commercial publication as well as related works presented in my blogging projects.
The lone wolf is the most feared individual that any law enforcement agency ever encounters. But the lone wolf is not always alone, and I’ll show you why and how I draw that conclusion. The lone wolves sometimes act in packs just like any other predator, they just operate differently and usually pull off strikes alone. A lone wolf by the usual sense of law enforcement terminology is a “domestic terrorist”. I don’t always agree with that statement. He can be domestic or foreign and he can strike at home, in America or abroad. He will strike law enforcement and military symbols of government. He will strike civilians, too. This article is primarily concerned with domestic lone wolves striking law enforcement, but we must keep in mind lone wolves are worldwide and will explode in the next few months and years and become a dominate operating system of both domestic and foreign terrorists at home and abroad. Although they usually operate alone with sudden and dramatic striking force, they often sit in the same classroom, studying the same material, listening to the same lectors and are educated by the same, often identical, masters of influence. In the case of foreign terrorists the meeting places are the universities, social medias and the religious houses that preach the violence and influence young minds to radicalism. The deadliest lone wolves are seasoned combat veterans of the United States Army, but sometimes other military institutions such as the U.S. Marines. Today’s law enforcement is totally ignorant about the operation(s) of lone wolves in America. We are all ignorant to some degree. The basic operation of lone wolves leave us without the ability to foresee strikes that are covert in nature since there is zero communication that is traceable. The only one that knows of an imminent lone wolf attack is the lone wolf unless there is a tight-knit, tight-lipped pack coordination.
Rather the lone wolf strikes in America as a domestic terrorist or radical terrorists in a foreign nation against Americans or any other target their motivation is usually the same, revenge and to inflict fear. Revenge and fear are the cornerstones of their terrorism. Whatever it is they want to strike, they do so because the hate what the target represents and they want to destroy it and they want to inflict the highest level of fear when they do so. Weak political and bureaucratic leaders and unjust actions by government will raise the level of lone wolf strikes and inflict the greatest amount of damage.
The bad news is we are in an era where lone wolf strikes will increase, and dramatically so. The good news is this series and serial along with my philosophical writings, commentaries, essays, and as well, and if not more importantly so, my works of fiction, will present revolutionary thoughts to prepare for and reduce the damage the lone wolves will rain down on America in the coming ages. That eruption may occur again tomorrow, next week, next month or next year. There is a lot that weighs on the likeliness of lone wolf strikes and domestic terrorist attacks as well as semi-related radical militia uprisings. From power grid strikes to rising law enforcement assassinations to strikes against opposition targets, the lone wolf will be present in daily conversation locally and nationally.
Lone wolves are almost always of domestic nature, but can be sympathizers of international terrorism, too, which makes them even deadlier. Their strength is in secrecy and surprise. Little or nothing is traceable until it is too late, after the damage has been done.
A single lone wolf can require hundreds, even thousands of law enforcement officers (LEOs) to track them. A single lone wolf can consume millions of taxpayer dollars in the manhunt used to track and capture or track and destroy them and millions more to prosecute if they are taken alive, something which is increasing unlikely. Imagine a thousand lone wolves operating simultaneously or back-to-back across America. Or tens of thousands. Foolish and ignorant law enforcement won’t do anything to reduce these foreseen strikes. Instead, they are unconsciously likely to invite more. They won’t even know what they are involved with until after the strike. Instead, law enforcement needs to rethink, retrain, adjust, adapt and reverse a large portion of the current procedures and policy, including police and public servants attitude toward the public. If they don’t adjust, chances are the blood will shed, and too often, like in any war or conflict, it will be the blood of the innocent. Change to avoid or reduce such premeditated and provoked violence can come only from intelligent thinking and smart leadership, something America seems to often be lacking, yet something that is not impossible to obtain. Watch for the next Lone Wolf installment in either fiction or nonfiction form in the Vegas Valley media group.
Lone Wolf: A lone wolf is an animal or human who spends most of their time alone rather than in a group. The definition in this serial (a mix of fiction and nonfiction writing in regularly scheduled installments) is that of a lone person acting in a criminal manner using deadly weapons or fatal methods to attack a specific target, most often police or government, to satisfy a revenge of personal grudge. The vengeance may or may not include civilian targets and casualties and may include a wide range of grievances. There are many different types of lone wolves which are predators preying on a variety of targets including police, government, women or individuals, specific groups and targets. Serial killers and criminals that prey upon nongovernmental targets and objectives, rather individual or groups, can sometimes be classified as lone wolves although they are not commonly considered so. They are in reality lone wolves because they operate alone and it is the solitude operative that makes the lone wolf so deadly and difficult to catch. Unless he or she makes a mistake, leaves incriminating evidence, acts under surveillance cameras or witnesses, talks to someone who might turn informant, the lone wolf is extremely difficult to detect and almost never predicted to strike until after the fact.
The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) classifies a “lone wolf” as non-U.S. citizen or person operatives. I classify a lone wolf as any person or closed cell that conducts acts of terrorism or violence upon individuals or groups including government and nongovernmental facilities, agencies and personnel, inside or outside of the United States of America.
LEO: Law enforcement officer(s)
Serial: Written works of same story-line released in installments at regular intervals. Examples are a novel released in installments, often numbered.
Series: Written works released in a common theme but different story line. Examples Homeland Series or Homeland Wars Series are stories about homeland-American unrest, survival, deep-woods survival, terrorists attacks, lone wolves attacks, foreign invasions, political tyranny, military coup, a coming second civil war, revolution, race wars, Mexican-American conflicts, chaos in the homelands, and such things as American Spring, revolts, etc all occurring in the “homeland” of America and disrupting civilized and modern life as we know it.
Note: It can and will be argued that the definition of a “lone wolf” must operate alone in order to be labeled a lone wolf, but in my serial and general series dealing with the human lone wolf I also sometimes refer to a lone wolf cell or a lone wolf pack which for example is an impenetrable, unable to be infiltrated, lone wolf team. Examples are husband and wife, lovers, related persons such as parents and/or siblings and the like who even under torture would not give up information to incriminate the lone wolf cell. Although more than one person works in harmony it is identical as a sole being operating because nothing is compromised. For that reason the stories and essays that will be presented consider such operatives as lone wolves because that is what they essentially are, restrained or lack of communicativeness of all members which makes them ultra deadly. Every writer can write something others may disagree with, I am no exception.
