after looking at #amndawla for more than 24hours, and talking to people in the streets.

Description of Red Herring (amn Dawl Docs)

Also Known as: Smoke Screen, Wild Goose Chase.

A Red Herring is a fallacy in which an irrelevant topic is presented in order to divert attention from the original issue. The basic idea is to "win" an argument by leading attention away from the argument and to another topic. This sort of "reasoning" has the following form:

Topic A is under discussion (redistribution of power/ rebuilding the system) .

Topic B is introduced under the guise of being relevant to topic A (when topic B is actually not relevant to topic A).
(in this case, it's who did what with who when, when we already know that they all suck anyway)

Topic A is abandoned. (this is what they want)

This sort of "reasoning" is fallacious (not correct) because merely changing the topic of discussion hardly counts as an argument against a claim.just Google what a red herring Is, and realize that "red herrings" are standard intelligence procedures,

State Sec (amn Dawla) are not a mob, but a serious powerful organization, they cannot be brought down by simple cheering, and a coupe of break-ins, they are organized, and they are beyond malicious, and they have resources unknown to even parts of their own organization,

we cannot afford to be Naive when dealing with this,

the damage will take years to repair,

if we ever manage to get to the point of repairing the damage, it wont be while we are getting sidetracked,

a friend asked me earlier what do i hope to achieve with notes like this, other than raise doubt,
my answer is that i do not know what to do, and i leave it to everyone's conciseness,
i have no right to do otherwise, i can only warn when i think there's something worth it.

another point,

most of you reading this, will have reference point (family/friends/relatives/etc.)s regarding how power and authority works in this country, the man in the street wont, and will see nothing but the glaring difference between his life and what he "thinks" is your life,

and that can easily be misguided by anyone,

and i dare say that the would be a pretty good plan if i was an amnDawla Agent...

i'm done.

please read my previous post if you haven't,
and make up your own mind.
