How to deal with spies


There are quite a few videos on Youtube showing young men destroying cameras. The methodology they use is similar regardless of the country they hail from:
– They work in small groups of less than five.
– They work quickly and quietly. In and out in under 2 minutes. That shows preparation, like Hamid keeps stressing, and importantly it shows one particularly good trait – ‘Decisiveness’.
– They wear balaklava, gloves and other clothes to cover themselves, to make sure they can’t be identified by other people.
– They use tools which are available to everyone: hammers, spray paints, rope made into lasoos, angle grinders, and explosives (if they can be acquired).
