United States of... False Flags

- The United States government is the world
leader in purveying false flags and propaganda
stunts. Or, more generally, downright,
systematic lies. To justify the outrageous
violation of international law, wars and
president and Commander-in-Chief, Donald Trump,
is himself the object of fraudulent US
intelligence, accused of "collusion with Russian
agents." In a rare admission, the Washington

shameless conduit for US propaganda to fuel
conflict with Syria and North Korea.
In the latter case, a world war could break
out at any moment as a result of insane American

Peninsula this week is just another reckless
provocation by Trump.

said the "sweeping sanctions" were because of

chemical weapons attack on innocent men, women
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov
said the latest
US sanctions were "unfounded" since there is no
proof that the Syrian government used chemical
weapons in Idlib Province on April 4.
Indeed, several respected international
authorities, such as American professor Theodore
Postol, a weapons expert at MIT,
official US claims about the chemical incident.
The only "proof" provided by the US government
and Western media are videos of alleged victims.
That is, videos supplied by al Qaeda-linked
terrorists and their media agents known as the
This terror nexus is a creation of US, British
and French military intelligence, financed
with Saudi and Qatari money.
April 4 chemical incident in Idlib was plausibly
a "false flag" staged by Western-sponsored
terrorist proxies to elicit American military
attack on Syria. In other words, innocent
people, including children, were murdered
with lethal chemicals, and the whole macabre
spectacle videoed for dissemination by the
Western news media. It would not be the first
time. The August 2013 "chemical weapons"
incident near Damascus was probably also another
macabre set-up by the terror groups.
here we have an American president citing a
false flag orchestrated by his own intelligence
agencies to justify his subsequent order for a
missile strike on Syria on April 7. And now we
see the US government slapping punitive
sanctions on Syria as a further warped response.
significance is the fact that the US, Britain
and France have blocked Russian, Iranian and
Syrian demands for an impartial on-site
investigation to be carried out in the town
of Khan Shaykhun where the chemical incident
allegedly happened. As Russia’s Foreign Minister
Sergey Lavrov pointed out, the Western powers do
not want to find out what really happened
because that would interfere with their agenda
for regime change in Syria.
By way of shoring up the false narrative
on Syria, this week US media
"reports" alleging that North Korea has been
supplying the Syrian government with chemical
weapons technology. As usual, no verifiable
evidence is presented, just more bombastic
assertions and concocted claims.
can see where this is going. US intelligence,
mouthed by its president and controlled media,
are laying down dots to entice the Western
public to join up with false logic and
prejudice, all so that the US authorities can
give themselves a legal, moral mandate
to justify aggression. Conveniently, the
contrived North Korea-Syria connection allows
for two birds to be hit with one stone.
pattern of deception here by the US government,
aided and abetted by propagandizing "news
services," is classic modus operandi. Time and
again, down through history, the US ruling class
have used false flags, distortion and outright
lies to promote their hegemonic desires
of inciting war, conflict and aggression.
country like the United States, which has been
waging war on other foreign nations for over 95
per cent of its history since its foundation
as a modern state in 1776, it only stands
to reason that such an astounding record
of belligerence, decade-after-decade, must
inevitably require a concomitant warmongering
propaganda system in order to make it all
could mention, for example, the deliberate
sinking of one of its own warships, the USS
Maine, in Havana Harbor in 1898, which was used
to instigate the Spanish-American War. That war
was key to the US emerging as an imperial power
in the Western Hemisphere.
sinking of the civilian passenger ship, the
Lusitania, in 1915 off Ireland is another case
of deliberate sabotage, to frame-up the Germans,
which the US then used to launch itself into the
First World War.
recently, the fabricated US claims
of Afghanistan sheltering al-Qaeda terrorists
and weapons of mass destruction in Iraq were
invoked to sell American wars of revenge
for 9/11 terror attacks in New York, which were
themselves most probably propaganda stunts
staged by US intelligence.
flagrant case of US authorities mounting a false
flag was the Gulf of Tonkin incident, which
served as a pretext for American escalation
of the Vietnam War. In 1964, communist North
Vietnam was framed up for allegedly firing on a
US navy vessel. That incident allowed the US
government to dispatch conventional armed forces
to Vietnam. Some 50,000 US troops were killed
in that 10-year war, as well as three million
Vietnamese. The only beneficiaries were US
corporations and the Pentagon war machine.
the US is not unique in using false pretexts
to cover for acts of war and criminality. But
there can be little doubt from any objective
study of history that the US stands out –
without any compare – as the biggest purveyor
of false flags, lies and propaganda to promote
its warmongering. Warmongering that has
destroyed dozens of countries around the world
and inflicted tens of millions of deaths.
we are on another cusp of US-led war. Syria has
been set up with a brazen false flag
over chemical weapons, which in all probability
is a sickening charade by Western-sponsored
and Iran, by extension, are smeared as part
of an "axis of evil" by the US propaganda system
owing to their otherwise principled alliance
with Syria to defeat Western-backed terrorist
alarming is the US false flag effort
against North Korea. This small, independent
nation, which is not at war with anybody, is,
in fact, a victim of American aggression – an
aggression involving the sailing
of nuclear-powered submarines and warships
to its coastal waters.
US President Trump, whose country has thousands
of nuclear weapons enough to destroy the entire
planet, is labeling North Korea as the "world's
number one threat."
United States is the most dangerous terrorist
force on Earth, largely because it is run
by rulers who forge lies all the time for waging
wars and obliterating humans. The supposed
Commander-in-Chief President Donald Trump is
himself a target of US lies. Can you get any
more deranged than that?
