Associated Press Newspeak: soldiers with capital 'S'?

A flagrant case of totalitarian 'Newspeak'

FPF - Dec. 23d - 2005 - In the following story by 'Associated Press' - one of the worst propaganda sewers of the neocon US Empire - among the things that catch and hurt the eye are two, which need to be kept in mind.

The first, the title: ''Soldiers Train for Iraq on Sheep Farm '' speaks for itself: nearly all more or less normal human beings that end up in the US and other military are trained in 'boot camps', dehumanized to be sheep: eat, train, do not think and just follow the orders by the leader/shepherd. - [As Hitler said: Befehl ist Befehl!] - The dogs - called 'Poverty' and 'Repression' - will keep the sheeple in line.

THE SECOND PHRASE IS HOWEVER HAIRRAISING IMPORTANT:

AS FAR AS I KNOW THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THE GOV'T CHANNEL 'AP' USES CAPITAL 'S' WHEN USING THE WORD 'soldiers', WRITING: 'Soldiers' - USING A CAPITAL IN THE MIDST OF A SENTENCE.

At first it can be thought to be a clerical error, but the word 'Soldiers' is repeatedly used with a capital 'S' for all the poor misguided cannonfodder taking part in the illegal neocon wars. Paying with their lives and mental health for profits they'll never enjoy themselves.

They've never understood why the word 'boss' is written different nowadays: BoSS. Only if you are willing - or be made to die for them, the capitalists will offer you a share too: a capital 'S'.

LIKE IN Suffering Suckers?

Upper-case letters normally only are used to indicate names, titles, and important words, indicating here that AP and Military.com - where the story was published - are trying to glorify the soldiers, to bestow glory upon the poor nitwits who don't even know what they are fighting for in most cases. They only see and hear neocon propaganda like this crap.

Is it meant as some kind of transfiguration, so the readers must elevate them, to extol their virtues because now they're called 'Soldiers'? Influence the readers with an overtly subliminal capital 'S' as a - not so subtle - sensory stimulus that we are not supposed to be aware of but will - by repitition - in some manner positively respond to it?

As if the whole quagmire orchestrated by those neocon war criminals isn't bad enough, they need this bad case of totalitarian 'Newspeak' too?

The whole scheme is 'Sick...'

SOLDIERS TRAIN FOR IRAQ ON SHEEP FARM

Associated Press | December 23, 2005

ROY, Wash. - Huddled in the snow near a sheep pen, two dozen Soldiers call out jokes to their friend inside as he stomps his feet and hisses, trying to drive the animals in the desired direction.

Underneath the jocularity is serious business: special training for wartime conditions. The Soldiers with the 3rd Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division and the 51st Military Police Detachment know it could save their lives when they return to Iraq next year.

The training at Ewe-topia, a 10-acre farm where dogs are taught to herd livestock, is a first for the Army, said Samantha Evans, spokeswoman for the Joint Readiness Training Center and Fort Polk in Louisiana. It's an example of the diverse training being used as U.S. operations continue in Iraq.

Ewe-topia, which abuts Fort Lewis, about 40 miles south of Seattle, provides sights and smells associated with livestock that Soldiers wouldn't get at Leschi Town, the fort's new $19 million urban-combat training center.
