The All Too Grim And Chilling Reality Of False Flag Attacks

When many people see the term “False Flag” they take it to mean that the events in question didn’t really happen – that they were a hoax, or staged. The sad fact of the matter is, these atrocities do happen. The suffering, misery, and death are very real. However, what is up for questioning, is who is really behind them? Whether it is through direct involvement, or merely by allowing something to happen, false flag attacks are a cold reality of how the intelligence arms of the world’s governments work.

Perhaps even more worrying is that increasingly, anyone who dares mention the possibility of an event being a false flag attack risks the wrath of the masses. As understandable as it might be that some feel it disrespectful to the very real victims of such attacks, those that carry out these atrocities rely as much on that lack of questioning by the public as they do on the events themselves having whatever desired effect they are looking for.

In May 2017, in wake of the Manchester Arena bombings, comedian, and writer, Rufus Hound, experienced exactly this when he would question aspects of the bombing. He would highlight – quite rightly – that the “timing” of the incident was suspicious. Although he would apologize for offending anyone, he would stand by his claims. Whether the Manchester Arena massacre was such an attack or not is open to debate – at least it should be. Especially when you consider the overwhelming amount of proven and heavily suspicious such instances throughout modern history alone.

Before we look at some of those, check out the video below. It looks at the “Problem-Reaction-Solution” theory.

Second World War False Flags

In the run-up to and during the Second World War, many false flag attacks would go into action – on all sides.

In fact, one of the incidents mentioned by the aforementioned Rufus Hound occurred in Germany on the evening of 27th February 1933. A German parliament building, known as the Reichstag building would burn to the ground. A “radical communist”, Marinus van der Lubbe would soon be in custody for the fire. According to the regime, he admitted to the charge. The incident would give the Nazis ample reason to “crackdown” on the “communist threat”. It would also stoke national and patriotic support for their actions.

In reality, the fire began under the orders of Hermann Goring. At the Nuremberg trials, General Franz Hadler testified with no uncertainty that Goring was responsible for it. And the reason is to rally the country behind them against the perceived “threat” from communist radicals. The regime would stage similar attacks on government buildings years later. This time blaming Polish militants in order to “justify” their eventual invasion of the country.

Interestingly a quote of Hitler’s reads, “Terrorism is the best political weapon, for nothing drives people harder than a fear of a sudden death!”

Stalin’s Similar Mindset

Hitler was certainly not alone in this way of thinking. Josef Stalin is on record as saying, “The easiest way to gain control of a population is to carry out acts of terror! The public will clamor for such laws if their personal security is threatened!”

Russia (then the Soviet Union) has its own history of false flags. Perhaps most notably the massacre of over 20,000 Polish residents in 1940. The orders came from Stalin, and then the deaths blamed on the Nazi regime. Interestingly, in the years that followed the war, Poland would fall under Soviet control for some time.

Check out the short video below. Make of the content what you will, but it is a good example of how things are not always as they seem. And of how ideologies, apparently worlds apart such as Nazism and communism, are closer than some might think.

False Flags “Leads” America Into The World Wars?

Although there is no absolute proof, many have argued that both of the incidents that would lead the United States into both the First and Second World Wars were false flag attacks.

Their purpose? To convince the American public that it was in their interests for America to enter the wars in Europe. This was particularly the case with the events that led to American involvement in World War Two. Franklin Roosevelt won his presidency on the promise that he would not take America onto the battlefields of Europe.

So what changed America’s collective mind? The events of 7th December 1941, a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, achieved such a purpose. Remember Hitler’s comments concerning “people’s fear of sudden death!”

The surprise attack by Japanese fighters on the US docks in Hawaii would result in over 2,000 military, and sixty-eight civilian deaths, as well as thirty-five wounded!  It wasn’t that anyone denied the Japanese carried out the attack – they did – but the American intelligence services received ample warnings of such an attack. They would choose to dismiss (or ignore?) these warnings.

The video below looks at the Pearl Harbor false flags in a little more detail.

The Lusitania Conspiracy

Interestingly, another suspected false flag event may have brought the United States into the First World War in 1915 with the sinking of the Lusitania. On 7th May as it approached the Irish south coast, a huge explosion ripped a gaping hole in the ocean liner’s side. It would sink rapidly, and take 1,201 people with it. Of these, 128 were American citizens.

The Germans would accept responsibility for the sinking, and condemnation came internationally. The targeting of passenger liners is outside the “rules of war!”

Although the United States would refrain from joining the war outright for another two years, the anti-German sentiment in America was high during that period. When they began targeting innocent civilian ships again in 1917, the American public collectively agreed that action should go ahead. Interestingly or not, the transcripts of the radio exchange between the doomed liner and the Admiralty on the day of the sinking remain strictly classified to this day – over a century later!

While both of these incidents are very much open to debate as to how “planned” they might have been, events that would follow concerning the American’s foreign policy over the coming decades does little to deter this way of thinking.

The short video below looks at the theories of Lusitania and if its sinking was purposeful.

Iran, and the Gulf of Tonkin Incident

As far back as the 1950s, American intelligence would play roles in how other countries around the world developed. And false flag operations were key to achieving this.

In 1953, Iran’s own people would overthrow their democratically elected government following a succession of bombings by “communist radicals!” The radicals in question were on the payroll of the CIA.

The following decade, after the heavily suspicious assassination of President Kennedy no less, the US military would again play “fast and loose” with the truth. The Tonkin Gulf Incident took place on 5th August 1964. The official story reported by the New York Times was that North Vietnam had launched unprovoked attacks on American Destroyers. Seeing how well this worked, the formula became a CIA standard. The government would feed the distorted truths to a rabid media, who would in turn run with it without question.

It is the Tonkin Gulf incident of 1964, and the way the media would report it to American citizens, that would pave the way for American forces to enter Vietnam, and in turn, the long drawn out conflict that followed. The American public, now sure that “communists were the bad guys!” They also knew North Vietnam were responsible for escalating the stand-off to hostile levels.

Questionable British Activity?

In the 2011 book MI6: The History of the Secret Intelligence Service 1909–1949 declassified files clearly show that British secret services would plant several bombs on ships carrying refugees in the late 1940s following the end of World War Two. They wished to “stem the flow” of migration into the Middle East. They would invent a terrorist organization to take the blame for the attacks – “The Defenders of Arab Palestine”.

It is certainly not the only time that the British intelligence and military services have taken part in such activity. As recently as 2005 in Iraq, Iraqi police would arrest a group of British soldiers “dressed as Arabs” and carrying explosives and bombs. They denied carrying out attacks, but would not disclose their activities. Stranger still, they were “broken out of jail” by a special task force in events resembling a Hollywood blockbuster.

Keep in mind the Iraqi Police and the British are working together at this point, at least officially! It appeared to many that the unit were there to carry out a false-flag mission – hence the heavy-handed retrieval.

Perhaps one of the most interesting planned false flag operations – particularly when you look at this region of the world today – is the agreed 1957 plan by United Kingdom Prime Minister, Harold MacMillan, and President of the United States, Dwight Eisenhower. Their plan would consist of carrying out “terrorist activities” in and around the Syrian border and then placing the blame for these attacks at the Syrian government’s feet. This would allow an invasion of the country and ultimately, regime change! Sound familiar?

The short video below goes over the 1957 plans for Syrian regime change.

We Must Question!

Given that so many of these incidents are clearly false flag events to advance military action or even regime change, is it not strange then that a lot of society – in many countries – fail to question the validity of “official” events? And those that do, face calls of “disrespect” or even of being “unpatriotic!”

Remember, we are not talking of governments per se here! These desires are those of the military and banking machines that operate in the shadows of the world’s governments.

Going back to the point made in the opening paragraphs of this piece, and the instant backlash and verbal attacks Rufus Hound received when he questioned the Manchester Arena incident, perhaps the following words from Hermann Goering explain all anyone needs to know about why false flags and claims of them should receive a little more seriousness:

“Why of course the people don’t want war! But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.”

Just think about those words for a moment!
