More Paris Puzzles
By Paul Craig Roberts
Clearing House" - Some people who are not
inclined to believe the official story of the Paris attack are
troubled by the question why Muslim suicide bombers would blow
themselves up for a false flag attack. The answer to this question
is very simple. But first we should dispose of the question whether
suicide bombers did blow themselves up. Is this something that we
know, or is it part of the story that we are told? For example, we
were told that during 9/11 passengers in hijacked airliners used
their cell phones to call relatives, but experts have testified that
the technology of the time did not permit cell phone calls from
airliners at those altitudes.
To dispose of the question whether we have or do
not have any real evidence that suicide bombers blew themselves up,
I will assume that they did.
So we have suicide bombers blowing themselves up.
Now turn to the question that troubles some
doubters: Why would suicide bombers blow themselves up for the sake
of a false flag attack?
As I said, the answer is simple: Why assume
that the suicide bombers knew who was organizing the attack?
There seems to be abundant evidence that ISIL is a US creation, one
that is still dependent on US active or passive support—thus the
conflict between Putin and Washington over attacking ISIL. ISIL
seems to be what Washington used to overthrow the government in
Libya and afterward was sent by Washington to Syria to overthrow
Assad. Obviously, Washington has ISIL infiltrated. Washington has
long proven is ability to use Islamic extremists. As Washington used
them in Afghanistan against the Soviets and in Libya and Syria
against independent governments, Washington used them in Paris. By
my last count, the FBI on 150 occasions has successfully deceived
people into participating into FBI orchestrated “terror plots.”
Now let us move to some bigger questions. Why do
terrorists attack ordinary innocent people who have neither
awareness of “their” government’s actions or control over them? The
victims of 9/11 were not the neocons and members of the Washington
establishment, whose policies in the Middle East justified attacks
on their persons. Ditto for the Boston Marathon Bombing, and ditto
for the Paris attacks. Innocents were the victims, not those who
have taken Muslim lives.
Historically, terror attacks are not on the
innocent but on the rulers and those who are guilty. For example, it
was the Archduke of Austria/Hungary who was assassinated by the
Serbian terrorist, not ordinary people blown up or shot down in a
It is interesting that terrorists attacks
attributed to Muslims only fall upon ordinary people, not upon the
political elites who oppress the Muslims. In past years on several
occasions I have remarked in my columns on the total vulnerability
of the neoconservatives to assassination. Yet there has been not a
single attack by terrortists on a neocon life, and the neocons are
the source of the violence that Washington has unleashed on the
Muslim world. The neocons walk around without threat free as birds.
How believeable is it that Muslim terrorists take
their ire out on innocents when the President of France himself, who
has sent military forces to murder Muslims, was sitting in the
attacked stadium and could easily have been eliminated by a suicide
Now let us turn to questions of identification of
the alleged “Paris terrorists.” Is it realistic to suppose that the
millions of refugees from Washington and its European vassals’ wars
in the Middle East have passports? Were these millions of refugees
expecting to be driven by White Civilization’s Bombs out of their
countries and thus had prepared themselves with passports in order
Did they write on their passport applications that
they were going to be visiting Europe?
Was the beleaguered country, their homeland, under
full military assault, able to process all these millions of
What sort of dumbshit Western media goes along
with the passport story — a media well paid to lie for Washington’s
hegemony and crimes?
One final question for skeptics. Where are the
photographs of the terrorists during their terrorizing? Surrounding
the scenes of violence there were not only abundant security
cameras, but also hundreds, even thousands, of people with cell
phones that have cameras. With all of these photos, how is it
possible that the authorities do not know if some terrorists
escaped, and if so, who they are and what they look like? Why are
the authorities relying on fake passports for photos of the
Terrorism has been unleashed in the Western World,
and it is the terrorism of Western governments against Western
