False Flags Launch Wars
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org - Home - Stephen Lendman)
They also escalate ongoing conflicts - incidents staged to deceive, one party falsely accused of something conducted by someone else.
They're a longstanding US tradition since at least the mid-19th century.
The mother of all 9/11 false flags launched one imperial war after another, pretexts to rape and destroy nations, no end of what's going on in sight.
Most Americans are none the wiser or indifferent about the highest of high crimes committed by their government - Republicans and undemocratic Dems pursuing the same imperial agenda.
It recklessly risks eventual nuclear war, the ultimate doomsday scenario.
It's possible and perhaps likely. JFK assassination documents declassified in 2016 (released last year) included a three-page memo initially marked "top secret."
In it, the US National Security Council (NSC) explained a false flag never conducted, using purchased Soviet Russian aircraft to justify war on the country, saying:
"There is a possibility that such aircraft could be used in a deception operation designed to confuse enemy planes in the air, to launch a surprise attack against enemy installations or in a provocation operation in which Soviet aircraft would appear to attack US or friendly installations to provide an excuse for US intervention."
The memo revealed that the NSC and CIA considered buying Soviet aircraft (from one or more non-Soviet block countries using them) to conduct a false flag attack, blamed on Moscow.
The CIA decided the plan was too risky, saying in the memo: "The fact that the United States was actively engaged in attempts to defect pilots of supposedly friendly countries might be revealed."
Pulling off the scheme would require a "maximum security area," adding otherwise it would be "most difficult to conceal the existence of such aircraft from the prying eyes of the American press and public."
Lunatics infesting Washington make the unthinkable possible. Jack Kennedy commented on similar ones in his day, wanting to nuke Soviet Russia while America had a big advantage.
In response to General Lyman Lemnitzer urging a surprise attack, Kennedy stormed out of a National Security Council meeting discussing it.
He wanted none of it remarking: "And we call ourselves the human race."
Dwight Eisenhower warned against the military-industrial complex's "acquisition of unwarranted influence," recognizing the danger of "misplaced power…"
Hawkish former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright once asked: "What's the point of having this superb military…if we (don't) use it?"
America has been a warrior state from inception, notably post-WW II, especially after the likely CIA-staged 9/11 false flag incident, perhaps jointly with Israel's Mossad.
Russia is Washington's longtime sworn enemy. Is war between both countries inevitable? Will Syria be the flashpoint launching confrontation between the world's dominant nuclear powers?
Did the April 7 false flag Douma CW incident make an eventual clash between both countries more likely?
Growing evidence shows no incident occurred, discussed in previous articles. German ZDF public broadcaster journalist Uli Gack provided more.
He visited an East Ghouta refugee camp near the site of the alleged incident. People he spoke to explained "in a very convincing manner that this whole story was staged."
US-supported terrorists alone used CWs numerous times throughout years of war. Days earlier, Syrian forces discovered a warehouse in liberated Douma with toxic substances used by terrorists to produce CWs.
Over the weekend, they uncovered a makeshift CW factory and storerooms, located in underground bunkers of sorts beneath residential buildings, connected by tunnels.
Gack is the latest journalist to debunk the falsified official narrative. So did others, likely more to come.
Yet the official Big Lie sticks because major Western media support it - complicit in the deception.
It's just a matter of time before another high-profile false flag attack occurs in Syria - a pretext for more US-led aggression, likely something much more ferocious than earlier.
Is all-out war on the country coming? Is going this far crossing a red line Russia won't tolerate?
Will flashpoint in Syria risk direct confrontation between Moscow and Washington?
Trump is no Jack Kennedy. Strongly influenced by neocon extremists makes unthinkable conflict between both countries possible - maybe likely.
