These ‘False Flags’ Were Used To Start A War

By Zero Hedge via http://www.informationclearinghouse.info

 

September 08, 2013 “Information Clearing House  Just in case one’s history textbook had a few extra pages ripped out, this may be a good time to recall just how far one’s government is willing to go to start a war under false pretenses.

Below is a partial list of some of the documented “false flag” events that were intended and/or served to start a war in recent and not so recent history.

Franco-Prussian War

Otto von Bismarck waved a “red flag” in front of the “gallic bull” by re-editing a telegram from the Prussian King so that it appeared as though the King had insulted a French ambassador during a time of extremely tense French-German international relations. The telegram is known as the Ems Dispatch. It helped encourage the states to go to war.

Russo-Swedish War

In 1788, a head tailor of the Royal Swedish Opera received an order to sew a number of Russian military uniforms that later were used in an exchange of gunfire at Puumala, a Swedish outpost on the Russo-Swedish border, on June 27, 1788. The staged attack, which caused an outrage in Stockholm, was to convince the Riksdag of the Estates and to provide the Swedish king Gustav III with an excuse to declare a “defensive” war on Russia. This was important since the king did not have constitutional right to start offensive war without agreement of the estates who had already made clear that their acceptance would not be forthcoming.

Spanish–American War, i.e, the Sinking of the USS Maine

The sinking of the USS Maine on 15 February 1898 in Havana harbor was initially thought to be caused by an external mine exploded under the ship. This belief roused anti-Spanish sentiment in the United States and helped catalyze the Spanish–American War later that same year. In 1911 an extensive study was made of the wreck, and again an external mine was believed to be the cause. In 1976 a team of naval explosive experts re?examined the earlier evidence and concluded that the likeliest cause of the sinking was an internal explosion caused by spontaneous combustion of fuel coal stored in a bunker next to a magazine holding more than 5 short tons (4.5 t) of powder charges for the guns. Despite this analysis, some observers believe that the explosion was caused by a U.S. agent for the purpose of angering the U.S. populace and initiating the war which followed. Cuban politician and former director of the national library Eliades Acosta claims that “powerful economic interests” in the United States were probably responsible not only for the sinking of the Maine but for the assassination of three 19th-century U.S. presidents, beginning with Abraham Lincoln.

The Mukden incident in September 1931 involved Japanese officers fabricating a pretext for annexing Manchuria by blowing up a section of railway. In fact the explosion was so weak that the line was unaffected. Six years later in 1937 they falsely claimed the kidnapping of one of their soldiers in the Marco Polo Bridge Incident as an excuse to invade China proper.

Reichstag fire

The Reichstag fire was an arson attack on the Reichstag building in Berlin on 27 February 1933. The fire started in the Session Chamber, and, by the time the police and firemen arrived, the main Chamber of Deputies was engulfed in flames. Police searched the building and found Marinus van der Lubbe, a young, Dutch council communist and unemployed bricklayer who had recently arrived in Germany, ostensibly to carry out political activities.

The fire was used as evidence by the Nazis that the Communists were beginning a plot against the German government. Van der Lubbe and four Communist leaders were subsequently arrested. Adolf Hitler, who was sworn in as Chancellor of Germany four weeks before, on 30 January, urged President Paul von Hindenburg to pass an emergency decree to counter the “ruthless confrontation of the Communist Party of Germany”. With civil liberties suspended, the government instituted mass arrests of Communists, including all of the Communist parliamentary delegates. With their bitter rival Communists gone and their seats empty, the National Socialist German Workers Party went from being a plurality party to the majority; subsequent elections confirmed this position and thus allowed Hitler to consolidate his power.

Historians disagree as to whether Van der Lubbe acted alone, as he said, to protest the condition of the German working class, or whether the arson was planned and ordered by the Nazis, then dominant in the government themselves, as a false flag operation. The responsibility for the Reichstag fire remains an ongoing topic of debate and research.

The Gleiwitz Incident

The Gleiwitz incident in 1939 involved Reinhard Heydrich fabricating evidence of a Polish attack against Germany to mobilize German public opinion for war, to establish casus belli, and to justify the war with Poland. Alfred Naujocks was a key organiser of the operation under orders from Heydrich. It led to the deaths of innocent Nazi concentration camp victims who were dressed as German soldiers and then shot by the Gestapo to make it seem that they had been shot by Polish soldiers. This, along with other false flag operations in Operation Himmler, would be used to mobilize support from the German population for the start of World War II in Europe.

Winter War

In 1939 the Red Army shelled Mainila, a Russian town near the Finnish border. Soviet authorities blamed Finland for the attack and used the incident as a pretext to start the Winter War four days later.

Kassa attack

The Kassa attack in 1941 involved the city of Kassa, today Košice (Slovakia), which was then part of Hungary, being bombed by three unidentified planes of apparently Soviet origin. This attack became the pretext for the government of Hungary to declare war on the Soviet Union.

Operation Ajax

The replacement of Iran’s Anglo-Persian Oil Company with five American oil companies and the 1953 Iranian coup d’état was the consequence of the U.S. and British-orchestrated false flag operation, Operation Ajax. Operation Ajax used political intrigue, propaganda, and agreements with Qashqai tribal leaders to depose the democratically elected leader of Iran, Mohammed Mosaddeq. Information regarding the CIA-sponsored coup d’etat has beenlargely declassified and is available in the CIA archives.

Operation Northwoods

The planned, but never executed, 1962 Operation Northwoods plot by the U.S. Department of Defense for a war with Cuba involved scenarios such as fabricating the hijacking or shooting down of passenger and military planes, sinking a U.S. ship in the vicinity of Cuba, burning crops, sinking a boat filled with Cuban refugees, attacks by alleged Cuban infiltrators inside the United States, and harassment of U.S. aircraft and shipping and the destruction of aerial drones by aircraft disguised as Cuban MiGs. These actions would be blamed on Cuba, and would be a pretext for an invasion of Cuba and the overthrow of Fidel Castro’s communist government. It was authored by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, but then rejected by President John F. Kennedy. The surprise discovery of the documents relating to Operation Northwoods was a result of the comprehensive search for records related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy by the Assassination Records Review Board in the mid-1990s. Information about Operation Northwoods was later publicized by James Bamford.

Gulf of Tonkin incident

The Gulf of Tonkin incident (or the USS Maddox incident) is the name given to two separate confrontations involving North Vietnam and the United States in the waters of the Gulf of Tonkin. The first event occurred on August 2, 1964, between the destroyer USS Maddox and three North Vietnamese Navy torpedo boats of the 135th Torpedo Squadron. The second was originally claimed by the U.S. National Security Agency to have occurred on August 4, 1964, as another sea battle, but instead may have involved “Tonkin Ghosts” (false radar images) and not actual NVN torpedo boat attacks.

The outcome of these two incidents was the passage by Congress of the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, which granted President Lyndon B. Johnson the authority to assist any Southeast Asian country whose government was considered to be jeopardized by “communist aggression.” The resolution served as Johnson’s legal justification for deploying U.S. conventional forces and the commencement of open warfare against North Vietnam.

In 2005, an internal National Security Agency historical study was declassified; it concluded that the Maddox had engaged the North Vietnamese Navy on August 2, but that there were no North Vietnamese Naval vessels present during the incident of August 4. The Gulf of Tonkin incident has long been accused of being a false flag operation, but this judgment remains in dispute.

Engineering the ‘Strategy of Tension’ in America

The strategy of tension (Italian: strategia della tensione) is a tactic that aims to divide, manipulate, and control public opinion using fear, propaganda, disinformation, psychological warfare, agents provocateurs, and false flag ‘terrorist’ actions.

I’m sure you will see the pattern

Was there an assassination attempt on Hillary in Israel? : News Article

via http://zeenews.india.com/  I could not find verification but its worth a read….

 Washington: There was an assassination attempt on US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton while she was on an official visit to Israel, according to Israel Radio and a news agency. 

 Israel Radio broke the story earlier in the week, which was confirmed by sources inside Israel, but never mentioned again. 

 According to World Mathaba, the purported attack on Hillary was related to the current political upheaval in Israel — the aim being kill Hillary, blame Iran and take the focus off the domestic political meltdown in Tel Aviv. 

 According to sources, the attack on Hillary’s convoy, a minimum of three to five vehicles, travelling from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, follows the story earlier of an attack on a bus loaded with Israeli tourists that exploded in Bulgaria, which killed six persons. 

According to World Mathaba, both the Bulgaria attack and the attempted assassination of Hillary was a Mossad “false flag” operation. 

There are dozens of Mossad agents operating in Bulgaria, which still has in place massive Soviet era security services that follow all tourists. 

Coincidentally, the attack on Hillary took place within hours of her supporting Israel regarding the Bulgarian attack, it said. 

Normal security procedures should have prevented any vehicle on open regions from coming within 200 meters of Hillary, it added.

The mainstream press have not as yet reported this supposed attempt on the wife to the former President of the United States.

by Jacque Fresco

From al-Alarm:

“Israeli sources reported that the convoy of Hillary Clinton and U.S. Secretary of State was shot yesterday during their passage on the Jerusalem – Tel Aviv.

According to information published by the site, “Rutter,” Israel, the type of car “Citroen” white car approached a convoy carrying Clinton and apparently fired from a car Alstroyn.

According to the guards of the convoy, the car fled from the place Alstroyn speeding No one was injured passengers from the footnote to Hillary Clinton.

The Israeli police announced the alert in the place that launched him on fire (the night of red).

According to the site The process of shooting was on the road to Jerusalem, “Tel Aviv” has reached a large force of police of the place.

Police did not confirm the Israeli occupation that has already been shooting about a car, but Hillary Clinton confirmed as conducting a wide sweep on the road to “Tel Aviv” Jerusalem, especially at the crossroads of violence.”

US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton has apparently survived an assassination attempt on her life in Israel.

News site al-Alarm has reported a possible shooting at a convoy of cars carrying Hillary Clinton whose husband did not have sexual relations with that woman  by armed persons in a white Citroen whilst she travelled to Jerusalem in a recent visit to Israel.

The unconfirmed shooting may or may not have been a direct attack on Clinton herself or a random act of cowardly terrorism upon the motorcade as opposed to the uncowardly act of using drones to blow civilians to bits in Pakistan the use of which is endorsed by Hillary Clinton herself.

The mainstream press have not as yet reported this supposed attempt on the wife to the former President of the United States.

As America and Israel prepare for war with Iran and possibly Syria (which will probably drag in Russia and China on the Iranian/Syrian side), the security surrounding public figures and the public is at its highest level yet as has been demonstrated by the complete professionalism surrounding the security at the Olympic games where illegal immigrants are allegedly working as private security guards for the games.

US unleashes false-flag ops on Persian Gulf again? : Gordon Duff

via veteranstoday.com Friday, July 20th, 2012

“When American intelligence officials not connected with the false-flag attack became aware of the scope of the plot, a conflict began between the JSOC (Joint Special Operations Command) and NSC (National Security Council), in effect the advisory board of Israeli/Americans that formulated policy and were, in fact, the inventors of, not just the “Global War on Terror,” but also stand accused of coordinating actual terror attacks against Americans.”

Late May 2012 ATTACK ON U.S. Likely


By Captain Eric H. May, Ghost Troop CO

The breaking news from Chicago, ‘NATO 3’ had targeted Obama campaign HQ, Rahm’s house, police stations, prosecutors say, concurs with the analysis below:


The United States is hosting the G8, NATO and the Bilderberg Group in a two-week span, during which elite Russian troops will be occupying key points near Northern Command (NORTHCOM), and it isn’t hard to imagine another 9/11 coming from such a sinister combination of brains and brawn.Starting with the premise that a false flag attack by the end of May is more likely than not, I’ll present the odds for the top targets and most dangerous days, then evaluate the various entities and individuals likely to be involved.

The top U.S. targets are:

  1. Chicago: 50%
  2. Houston: 20%
  3. Portland: 10%
  4. USS Enterprise: 10%
  5. San Antonio: 5%
  6. Las Vegas: 5%

(Source: MAY MEMO: Top Ten False Flag Terror Targets)

The most likely attack days are:

  1. May 20, Sunday: 10%
  2. May 21, Monday: 15%
  3. May 22, Tuesday: 20%
  4. May 23, Wednesday: 15%
  5. May 24, Thursday: 10%
  6. May 25-27: unlikely
  7. May 28, Monday: 5%
  8. May 29, Tuesday: 10%
  9. May 30, Wednesday: 10%
  10. May 31, Thursday 5%

The probable perpetrators are:

The United States, which in 1962 considered implementation of Operation Northwoods, according to ABC News. It was a false flag plan, prepared and proposed by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, based on the targeting of both the military and civilians to provoke a war against Castro’s Cuba.

Israel, which had its fingerprints all over 9/11, with both intelligence and demolitions operatives involved, according to the four-part Fox News investigative story Israeli Spy Ring, which added that federal investigators had been told not to investigate the matter. Its position is pretty much summed up in the May 6 JTA article: Obama should be more explicit about strike.

The United Kingdom, which was conducting terror training during the 2005 G8 meeting when the 7/7 attacks occurred in London. The “training” scenario was exactly what happened, according to exercise participant Peter Power’s BBC interview, given just hours after the event.

Russia, which has sent an unspecified number of its elite airborne troops to participate in terror training in and around U.S. Northern Command (NORTHCOM), May 24-31 in a most unsettling scenario: Russian Troops to ‘Seize CIA Facility’ in Elaborate War Games on U.S. Soil. This will be the first-ever operation by Russian soldiers in America, and public affairs officers are doing their best to downplay it, but it doesn’t pass the smell test for Cold Warriors — even the Russian ones.

There has been a precedent of sorts for U.S./Russian military counterterrorism cooperation. On Aug 8, 2010, this headline appeared: Russian, US Air Forces defend commercial aircraft in first-ever joint exercises. A day later, during the exercise and inside the exercise parameters, this happened: Former senator Ted Stevens dies in a plane crash. At present Russia is playing the spoiler to Western geostrategy, from supporting Iranian and Syrian sovereignty to opposing the development of a U.S. missile shield in Europe. All the tensions invite a breakthrough, like the sudden alliance between the Soviet Union and Germany in 1939, which entailed the invasion and partition of Poland by Hitler and Stalin.

Russian Airborne Troops To Take And Hold Denver Airport

The most puzzling question in the minds of Russian military analysts is why the Americans are using Russian airborne troops to be the “protectors” of these vital US intelligence resources instead of the “aggressors” as has always been the case historically. One speculation in this report, however, does note that the scenario to be played out in late May, in Colorado, as planned by the Americans, does, indeed, mirror similar plans of the Russian General Staff of actions to be taken in the case of sudden civil war where “outside forces” would be called upon to protect the government from overthrow by internal forces or armed rebellion by the military.

The G8, which control most of the world’s wealth, met at Camp David May 19-20, after a late-ish decision by the Obama administration to move them from their host city of Chicago: G8 summit moved to Camp David last-minute. Students of terrorism will recall that the same G8 was having its 2005 meeting in the UK when the London bus bombings happened. Has the 2012 meeting been a pre-attack strategy session?

NATO, which conducted Operation Gladio during the Cold War, according to the New York Times. A false flag mass murder program. Gladio carried out assassinations and bombings, putting the blame on left-wing terrorist groups in an attempt to keep public opinion in favor of the military alliance.

The Bilderberg Group, which is comprised of more than 100 of the international elite, will be meeting in Virginia May 31  – June 3, under a rigidly enforced media blackout, to consider (some say control) the course of world events.

Barack Obama, who has skeletons in his closet, is susceptible to blackmail. In fact, in the topsy-turvy post-9/11 world, he was probably selected as president because his past meant that he could be controlled, making him a mere operative of the powers that be. In my article this week, Chicago’s First False Flag “Barack Attack”, I demonstrated that the notorious Dead Chimp editorial cartoon, published on Feb 18, 2009, was directed at Obama for a Chicago false flag foul-up. The impending Barack Attack is better-prepared:

The most critical threat is directed against Obama, though, and it’s hidden in plain sight. On the cover of the latest issue of Newsweek is a picture of the president, multi-colored halo above, with the provocative caption “OUR FIRST GAY PRESIDENT.” It’s at best poor payment for Barack’s coming out in favor of gay marriage, a cause dear to the media. At worst it is much more, a not-so-subtle threat to “out” the president for past or present homosexual or bisexual behavior. It’s the kind of ruinous charge that most men would do anything to avoid.

Rahm Emanuel, whose loyalty to his country is paramount, will serve its interests. Unfortunately for Chicagoans, that country isn’t the United States. His Israel-first credentials are impeccable: his father was a member of the Jewish terrorist Irgun, and Rahm served in the Israeli military during the First Gulf War. Accentuating his desire to be the Rudy Giuliani of Chicago was his selection of a new top cop shortly after coming into office last year: Garry McCarthy’s leadership skills forged in 9/11 aftermath.

The Secret Service, which might check 9/11-style presidential outlawry, is being blackmailed, its peccadilloes turned into an albatross by a sudden show of morality. Its judgment day comes at crunch time: Secret Service sex scandal: Congressional hearing set for May 23. It’s all reminiscent of the Clinton/Lewinsky affair, and in the limelight for both that and now this scandal is Joe Lieberman, who chairs the Senate Homeland Security Committee. Howling and scowling Peter King, who chairs the House Homeland Security Committee, is his sidekick. A couple of months ago the latter chairman fed the media this welcome fodder: We have a duty to prepare for the worst’: Peter King says Iran has hundreds of Hezbollah agents in the U.S.

The FBI, which can be counted on to do everything in its power to facilitate another false flag, as it did with the Oklahoma City bombing and 9/11.

The CIA, which is headed by General David Petraeus, is infamous for its dirty dealings. Petraeus is officially known for leading U.S. forces in two failed wars, and unofficially reputed to be the man who ordered the assassination of his too-scrupulous subordinate, Colonel Ted Westhusing.

Captain Eric H. May is a former Army NCO and officer, with specialties in nuclear, biological and chemical warfare, military intelligence and public affairs. He is also a former NBC editorial writer who has published widely, from Military Intelligence Magazine to The Wall Street Journal. After the invasion of Iraq he undertook a mission of conscience, joining other informed veterans to form Ghost Troop. Since 2004 they have operated to prevent the next 9/11 (9/11/2B). In recognition of their successes, in 2009 The Lone Star Iconoclast published the editorial Captain Eric H. May Deserves Medal Of Honor.
