The Cheerleaders

I ran the following story here on the IBA some time back, and we have an update. The Cheerleaders (also known as the Fighting Cocks) have a MySpace page:

The Fighting Cocks

And they have a fan group on FaceBook:


Here's what they did that brought them to our attention in the first place:

A few months ago, I got an email from a person named Charlie who said, "Last night, my group took out IslamBase, the main UK jihadist website. So rah for us!"

I looked up IslamBase, and there were lots of results for the search on Google, and the two main ones were out.

I just checked again, and they're still off line:

is not even there.

http://www.muslimtents.com/islambase says their site is "under construction."

I asked Charlie how they did it. He said,
It's a group of us — we're called P2OG, or by the nickname The Cheerleaders. Basically we track and disrupt violent extremists, mostly Islamic extremists, based in the UK.

Islambase is the main website and forum for UK jihadis.

Using various methods we've identified who the top people are on Islambase and by warning them that we're going to put their names on posters all over London, we got the site disrupted. If it goes up again, we'll post their names on the site itself. And so it goes on!

Any info worth sending on, we send on to relevant agencies, i.e. SO15 (the Counter-Terrorist Command in London) or the Home Office.
I looked up P2OG and found out it stood for "Proactive Preemptive Operations Group." The Defense Science Board (DSB) conducted a 2002 "DSB Summer Study on Special Operations and Joint Forces in Support of Countering Terrorism." They DSB recommend the creation of a super-Intelligence Support Activity, an organization it dubbed the Proactive, Preemptive Operations Group (P2OG), to bring together CIA and military covert action, information warfare, intelligence and cover and deception. For example, the Pentagon and CIA would work together to increase human intelligence, forward/operational presence and to deploy new clandestine technical capabilities.

I asked Charlie if that's what P2OG stands for, and if so, is that who The Cheerleaders are. He said:
It does indeed stand for that. When we realized that the DSB study wouldn't lead to the Pentagon setting up the original unit, we took the name. That way, if any jihadis search for us, they just get a load of conspiracy theories!

In real life, we're me, some ex-army intel people, some hackers, and a bunch of girls with funny-colored hair!

However, the theory behind the original plan still stands — we get in there and proactively stir things up.
Violent jihad is spreading around the world because Jihadis are effectively using the internet. The Cheerleaders are making their task much more difficult, and doubtless saving the lives of innumerable non-Muslims. They are heroes.

Lemmee get this straight: This is a band that also fights Islamic extremists and disrupts their internet activities and they took the idea and the name from a DSB study after the US military dropped the ball and now they're taking out major Jihadist sites by threatening to paper their names all over town? And if you google P2OG you get a bunch of Troofer sites and crap of that ilk?

Oh, now this I LIKE...

BTW, which one is their "logo"? I'm not on Facebook because I'm squicky about sites that want my name.

I LOVE it-artists-musicians-and ex-army intel folks -just 'doing the job' that our government officials won't do!!!
This is an example of Christ's command Lk:19 KJV- to "OCCUPY til I come..." the word 'occupy' - militarily- means to 'hold the ground already won'...in the arts-business-gvt. et.al---
To say that I am excited about this post and this group is an understatement...
Thank you CW...

I like that they call themselves the Fighting Cocks. I wish I would have thought of that.

Si Geert Wilders "tombe" alors c'en est fini de la liberté d'expression en Europe. Aussi nous lançons une grande action SITA internationale avec 2 textes possibles en français l'un mettant en parallèle Wilders et Winston Churchill et l'autre Wilders et Charlie Chaplin:

2009/01/23/je-soutiens-le-democrate-geert-winston-wilders-contre-le-fascisme-islamique-et-ses-dhimmis/ (winston-fr)

2009/01/23/je-soutiens-le-democrate-geert-charlie-wilders-contre-le-fascisme-islamique-et-ses-dhimmis/ (charlie-fr)
Pour soutenir Geert Wilders et nos libertés chèrement acquises participez aux des 2 actions proposées et transmettez ce message à vos amis proprietaires d'un site ou d'un blog pour qu'ils le publient.
Une autre façon efficace d'aider geert Wilders est de faire un don et pour cela aller à la page: www.geertwilders.nl


If Geert Wilders falls, then Freedom of speech is dead in Europe. We are launching an extensive International Action SITA including two possible texts ; one comparing Wilders and Winston Churchill and another Wilders and Charlie Chaplin:

2009/01/23/i-support-democrat-geert-winston-wilders-against-islamic-fascism-and-its-dhimmis (Winston Eng)

2009/01/23/i-support-democrat-geert-charlie-wilders-against-islamic-fascism (Charlie Eng)
To support Geert Wilders and our dearly acquired freedoms please participate to the 2 suggested actions and transmit this message to your friends owners of a website in order they publish it.
An other way to support Geert Wilders is to give some money. To donate: www.geertwilders.nl


Wenn Geert Wilders "fallt"dann ist die Meinungsfreiheit in Europa am Ende. Wir setzen darum mit zwei Texten auf Franzosisch und Englisch eine grose

"Action SITA International" in Gang. Im einen Text wird eine Parallele zwischen Wilders und Winston Churchill, im anderen eine Parallele zwischen Wilders und Charlie Chaplin aufgezeigt. ( http://sitamnesty.wordpress.com/ )

Wenn Sie der Meinung sind, dass Geert Wilders' Freiheit - und damit auch Ihre eigene - Ihnen eine Briefmarke wert ist, dann machen Sie bitte mit.

Um Geert Wilders zu unterstutzen und unsere hart erkampften Freiheiten zu verteidigen, leiten Sie diese Nachricht Ihren Freunden und an Blogs zur Veroffentlichung weiter.

Sie konnen Wilders auf http://www.geertwilders.nl auch finanziell unterstutzen.
