In addition to some unsettling images and sounds, featured throughout the clip are messages, starting with a quote from Sun Tzu, a famous Chinese general, military strategist, writer, and philosopher:
If your opponent is of choleric temper, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant.
Born from the ashes of a world at war.
You’ll find us in the shadows.
At the tip of the spear.
A threat rises in the East.
Warfare is evolving.
And all the world’s a stage.
Anything we touch is a weapon.
We can deceive, persuade, change, influence, inspire.
We come in many forms.
We are everywhere.
A feeling in the dark.
A message in the stars.
Ghosts in the machine.
What, are we?
Verbum Vincet (Latin > English: “The word will conquer”)
The 1st Special Forces Command is located in Fort Bragg, North Carolina and describes itself as the world’s “premier partnered irregular warfare force”:
