“Pleasure derived by someone from another person's misfortune.”
According to the learned folk “Schadenfreude is a complex emotion where, rather than feeling sympathy, one takes pleasure from watching someone's misfortune. This emotion is displayed more in children than adults. However, adults also experience schadenfreude, although generally they conceal it.”
The last week or so I took the time to look at the first eleven GMJ Books from Code Name VFO565 to Code Name Devorah. I well recall when I started writing them a few months after my wife died. They were not my first books as I already wrote about eight others before them, but they were the first fiction or fictionalised books. As it is with most things in life, it took a while before “reading smoothness” came to the fore. I also made sure to use them as warnings on the future. I felt I had the knowledge and insight that could be valuable to someone. What is fascinating to me is how my warnings came true one after the other. From this came a feeling of schadenfreude, I suppose.
Following is from a December 2020 BBC article to be found at https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-55147863. “According to the Global Terrorism Index published on 25 November, the ‘centre of gravity’ for the Islamic State group IS has moved away from the Middle East to Africa and to some extent South Asia, with total deaths by IS in sub-Saharan Africa up by 67% over last year. The expansion of ISIS affiliates into sub-Saharan Africa led to a surge in terrorism in many countries in the region,” reports the Global Terrorism Index. “Seven of the 10 countries with the largest increase in terrorism were in sub-Saharan Africa: Burkina Faso, Mozambique, DRC, Mali, Niger, Cameroon and Ethiopia. The report points out that in 2019 sub-Saharan Africa recorded the largest number of ISIS-related terrorism deaths at 982, or 41 per cent of the total…”
Yep. I even called sub-Saharan Africa the new battleground in every single GMJ Book. Donald J Trump sort of realized what was happening earlier than the rest: “We are decimating ISIS in the Middle East. What’s happening is, they’ll go to parts of Africa, they’ll go to other places. When they get there, we meet them. It’s a dangerous business. It’s a tough war. We’re beating ISIS very badly.” Donald J Trump, 45th US President, October 2017.
This was, as I said, “Exactly what I was warning about since 2014 when the first book, Code Name VFO565, was published. The radicals are moving into Africa. The Israelis with Mossad are the kings in the Middle East, chasing them away. The South Africans with the South African Secret Service control sub-Saharan Africa. Within the above two spheres, you will find 80% of the radicals, the rest are hiding in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Wherever the War on Terror is being won, as Mr Trump noted, the threat moves away and mostly into Africa, the new battleground. But don’t think for one moment that the fighting will be easy. Africa is like no other theatre in the world, nothing like what you have seen before.”
Seen what happened since it will only get worse for the low standards Western troops bungling around in Africa. My views on AFRICOM are well known, I suppose, and very negative with excellent reasons. Up to now every rookie mistake was and is being made. Men led by donkeys, the same old story. It will not change. Other interesting news for my British readers, the British Army is now deployed permanently at 145 base sites in 42 countries or territories around the world. Yes, in Africa alone, Kenya, Somalia, Djibouti, Malawi, Sierra Leone, Nigeria, and Mali. There are base sites in five countries around China with a naval base in Singapore. And so, the list goes on. We find British and ex British Special Forces in many more countries. What good do they do? Why are they there? They say there is no British Empire anymore except in the sense of a financial one (most tax havens are in British Protectorates and the City of London an independent country) but the above indicates something else. I predict that it is a matter of time before the body bags come home again as the UK finds itself in a new US war which concerns the island not. Let us hope that 1940 will not repeat but you know that in history the stupidity of politicians ensures repeating fiascos. Of course, I said a great many other things that time will tell us if correct or not and with those predictions, I hope I am wrong. I do not wish to see NATO and the US humiliated against China (with the wild cards, BRICS, somewhere in the background). So, it will be fascinating to see how the future plays out. But allow me to grin for a minute and say "I warned you!"

I would recommend you to also read the new GMJ book, OATH OF EVIL - The War on Protestantism, where a lot more is revealed. I.e. that the USA is a hijacked country taken over by the Papacy - as predicted in the Bible. We are seeing it playing off right in front of us. A complimentary electronic copy of the 700-page book is available at the bottom of the home page of this website. You need to subscribe to receive it in either Epub or Mobi format. You can obviously unsubscribe later. It is a gift from me. Please read it and spread the word.
* All 51 GMJ books deal with modern military subjects like espionage, counterterrorism, military strategy, military history, and exposing mainstream media lies/propaganda. The GMJ books are a delight for lovers of military history with content to be found outside the schoolbook approved histories. What is revealed in the GMJ books are shocking to the uninitiated. Prepare to find out the true state of affairs that no mainstream outlet will publish. If you wish to read about Covert and Special Forces Operations in sub-Saharan Africa, the new battleground where the radicals are to be found, the GMJ Books are the place to start. You will learn about covert operations, Special Forces techniques, and military history not known outside the select few.
