Black Arts.

This is coolbert:

Place almost in the strange but true paranormal category we have this item.

English psychological warfare experts during the thirty years of insurrection in Northern Ireland attempting to persuade the public that the para-military organizations, Catholic and Protestant both, were in league with the devil, engaging in witchcraft, black magic, sorcery, the "black arts" what they are referred to.

Stay away from those guys was the message!!

"Satanic panic: how British agents stoked supernatural fears in Troubles"

"Stories about black masses leaked to press in effort to link paramilitary attacks to the paranormal, study reveals"

"British military intelligence agents in Northern Ireland used fears about demonic possessions, black masses and witchcraft as part of a psychological war against emerging armed groups in the Troubles in the 1970s, a study says."

. . . .

"they [British intelligence] deliberately stoked up a satanic panic from 1972 to 1974, even placing black candles and upside-down crucifixes in derelict buildings in some of Belfast’s war zones."

How effective any of this was I might imagine hard to determine. When in desperate circumstances you resort to desperate measures? Is this was what occurring?
