There has been a good deal of speculation as to what this video means, with some claiming that psychological operations, so-called Psy-Ops, have constant illusions to magic and the occult.
The ad, which runs for 3 minutes and 35 seconds, does show some images that could be considered to be associated with the occult.
It also comes at a time in which many Americans harbor a deep distrust of covert government institutions in the wake of conspiracies like the Russia–collusion hoax, the Michigan kidnapping sting and strong evidence that federal agents helped instigate the violence on Jan. 6, 2021 at the US Capitol.
Psy-Ops also likely played a role in a series of globalist color revolutions, including Ukraine’s 2014 revolt against its pro-Russian president.
The boastful tone in which the ad spoke of inherently anti-democratic processes for manipulating large populations struck some as distasteful at best.
“The key message here is that very well organized and well funded organizations are operating at full steam behind the curtain to lead you astray from your original mind and your original self,” NOQ Report theorized. “And they are damned good at it.”
The ad was announced by the 1st Special Forces Command via Twitter.
“We believe in ghosts… do you?” the Tweet reads, providing no additional insight or explanations.
We believe in ghosts…

Responses to the ad are mixed. Some think the ad is cool and interesting; others believe recruitment like this from a publicly-funded organization sets a dangerous precedent.
Calm down. You’re all still public servants, funded by the people. Careful how much you all boast of interfering in foreign countries, future govts might not be so keen to fund this incredibly expensive ‘theatre’ by public servants. #WarIndustry

Whatever you believe in, remember that you swore an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution and protect U. S. citizens, not to run psy ops against them. Following orders that violate our 1st amendment rights is a dishonorable act.

Others believed the video took itself too seriously:
Everywhere in places like Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen, & soon in Ukraine, etc. Seeing the pattern? When was the last time the US ‘won’?
Jesus, this is embarrassing.
