Arson (How to)

Arson is one of the easiest crimes to commit and one of the most difficult for law enforcement to investigate. An arson attack can take the form of a sabotage or vandalism attack, a method of selective assassination, or as a terror attack against politicians and judges.

Any type of infrastructure which can be destroyed or disabled by fire may be attacked with incendiary devices. Electrical power generation and delivery, food supplies, fuel supplies and various government and corporate capital make excellent targets for arson attacks.

Arson is a particularly effective weapon of mass-murder. Employed against targets such as high-density breeding facilities high-rise apartments or locations where Capitalist and Communist congregate in large numbers, an arson attack can be quite deadly. This type of attack is often more deadly even than a bombing. The lethality of the arson attack can be increased by ensuring that any possible escape routes are denied and that emergency services are occupied elsewhere.

In a high-rise apartment building, the elevators must be disabled before the attack. This is best accomplished by setting their interiors ablaze with flammable liquids. Next the main fires must be set in the hallways of the first few floors. Start the fires at the ends of the hallways near the stairwell doors in order to drive escapees away from the stairwells and toward the (inoperative) elevators which are usually located in the middle of the hallway. Once this is accomplished the stairwells must next be filled with flame and smoke. A combination of 1/2 engine oil and 1/2 gasoline will make a great deal of smoke when set alight and can be used effectively to deter apartment dwellers from escaping by way of the stairs.

Other targets where Capitalist and Communist can be struck in large numbers, such as night-clubs and concerts, can be attacked with similar methods as those used for high-rise apartments. Night-clubs are particularly vulnerable targets as quite a bit of mayhem occurs at these locations on a nightly basis and security personnel generally have their hands full dealing with unruly patrons.

The operative must conduct surveillance to determine where the exits are, if they are kept locked (as they often are in these places to keep people from sneaking in without paying), how many security personnel are usually on duty and how alert and effective they are. Again all possible exits must be denied. Firebombs thrown or placed at the exits will cause enough panic to result in injuries and fatalities as patrons trample each other to find a way to escape. Most casualties in fires of this type are from smoke inhalation or crush injuries caused by fleeing crowds.

An arson fire will burn more quickly and thoroughly if fires are set in multiple locations around and within the target. Set fires where there is sufficient flammable material to allow flames to spread quickly. Fires burn upwards, of course, therefore fires should be set at the lower levels of a building or structure. Fuel containers, wooden furniture and building materials, plastics, carpets and curtains all make good fuel sources for arson fires. Simultaneous arson attacks at several locations will force emergency services to either "prioritize" one or two targets and let the rest burn or to spread themselves thin and try to deal with all of the targets. Either way the attacks will be much more effective than if they were conducted separately.

Arson investigations deal primarily with the question of whether or not a certain fire was an arson. Arson investigators are able to tell where a given fire originated, what type of incendiary device or chemical accelerator was used and if more than one fire was set. The operative will, for propaganda reasons, want any arson attacks conducted to be recognized as such by the "authorities". The operative must be aware that vapors from accelerants used often remain after a fire has been extinguished and can be analyzed by investigators. These tests can provide investigators with evidence if accelerants discovered in the operative's possession can be matched to evidence at the crime scene.
