Vikings Within The Village
) – It was called Operation Vikings 12, an appropriate name considering that Vikings formed themselves into raiding
parties and descended under cover of night upon unsuspecting villages, brutalizing the inhabitants.
The Vikings in this case were 600 police officers. The villagers were the citizens of Sydney, Australia, who were out to
have a good time on a Saturday night, or so they thought.
The Vikings, undoubtedly flushed with that combination of Dutch courage, sense of mission and smug self-importance that
comes from perceiving oneself as being part of some big operation, fanned out to the suburbs of Burwood, Marrickville,
Newtown and St. George, as well as Sydney's CBD, according to Inner Metropolitan Region Commander, Assistant
Commissioner, Dick Adams. Leaves one breathless just saying it.
The excuse given was that police were cracking down on drugs, and the way to do that is to mount massive police raids
with drug sniffing dogs on patrons in restaurants and nightclubs; the dogs must have found these activities distasteful
even if the police did not. The term "drugs" obviously includes alcohol: 5,600 motorists were randomly pulled over,
their licenses demanded, then asked to provide a sample of their breath under threat of being deemed to have been
driving drunk if they refused. Twenty-five people were charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, an arrest
rate of 0.4 percent, which would be laughable if what was happening was not so serious.
Operation Vikings 12 was only one instance of what is now becoming a way of life in Australia. On 13 September, the
Sydney Morning Herald reported that 300 police with drug sniffing dogs hit five Sydney nightclubs. Outside one of them,
dozens of people were forced to stand in small groups, with their legs apart, as a dog gave them the once-over. Only a
mainstream journalist could do it: trivialize an assault by police, on people not yet in custody, using dogs, for the
On August 10, a similar mass operation was mounted on the city of Wollongong, south of Sydney. According to an
eyewitness, a large column of police cars, sirens screaming and lights flashing, descended upon the city. Swarms of
police invaded restaurants and nightclubs, and randomly stopped people in the street for questioning. In one restaurant,
police interrupted a private 21st birthday party and subjected the guests to sniffing by dogs. One guest, who objected
and pushed the dog away, was immediately surrounded by police, hauled outside into the street and interrogated.
Can this really be Australia? What is going on?
In my book "22 Steps to Global Tyranny" (available at www.grahamstrachan.com), I amass evidence to prove that the real
aim of globalization is to bring about a single global order which is a Third Way, a combination of monopoly capitalism
(corporatism) in economics, and totalitarian socialism (communism) in politics. The former communist bloc has to be made
more capitalist by the introduction of so-called market reforms (done), while the former capitalist bloc is to be made
more communist by the abolition of common law rights, and the introduction of communist people control measures (well
Operation Vikings 12 is symptomatic of the new communist political regime in Australia, a taste of what it is like to be
a citizen in an interdependent member state of the globalist New World Order. It is no conspiracy theory, except in the
newsrooms of the major media. It is visibly taking shape before the very eyes of the Australian people who, like all
innocents in the face of totalitarian evil, refuse to believe it is happening.
The real purpose of raids such as Operation Vikings 12 is not to crack down on recreational drugs. The better procedure
would be to deploy the 600 police to target suppliers, production facilities and warehouses. Nor is it to catch
motorists driving with one beer too many. The sheer size of the operation puts the lie to those claims. The real purpose
of these massive police raids is psychological: to condition the public to accept mass random processing by law
Soon, while some police are demanding breath samples and DNA swabs with menace, others will be searching the car for
drugs, firearms and subversive literature. Anybody who objects to being processed or refuses to cooperate will be
charged with interfering with police in the conduct of their duties, or obstructing the course of justice. The idea that
police might be violating citizens' rights has already been relegated to the Memory Hole through legislation.
Bearing in mind that the state Police Ministers were secretly plotting the disarmament of the Australian people well
before the Port Arthur massacre that provided their ultimate excuse; recalling also that Australian defense chief
Admiral Chris Barrie has said (16 February 1999) that the Australian armed forces will be taking on a constabulary
(police) role to combat non-state (people) threats to Australia's internal security; adding to that the 2000 Aid to
Civilian Authorities amendment to the Defense Act which authorized the military to shoot and kill Australian citizens,
and it is clear that governments, state and federal, constitute a clear and present danger to all freedom-loving
What's the bet it will soon be announced that combined police/military training exercises are to take place over Burwood
and Marrickville using army helicopters and involving house-to-house searches? The explanation given will be that police
and troops need hands-on experience in smoking out terrorists and other undesirables in a real urban environment.
At a given point, the combined police/military training exercises will suddenly become the real thing. The definition of
terrorist will come to include anyone opposed to globalism or the collusive two-party ruling oligarchy in Canberra; or
in possession of forbidden literature such as Thomas Paine's The Rights of Man, the Australian Constitution, or the
Christian Bible, not to mention Douglas Reed's The Controversy of Zion. Those people will be hauled off in police vans
to military establishments where they will be held incommunicado, denied a formal charge and access to legal
representation, probably tortured, and ultimately banished to the concentration camp presently being built on Christmas
It could never happen in Australia? It has already begun. The Vikings are within the village.
