A Brief History of False Flag Operations……

20 Dec

Definition – False Flag” ……

A “False-Flag” attack occurs when a government uses elite special operations forces or tatics to attack a nation-state while falsely bearing the flag of another country or group. It is a “self-inflicted wound” and is used as a psychological operation (psyop) to process the group mind or “conscience-collective” of the populace, thereby providing a base of support and a powerful motivation for that country to attack and/or declare war against the country to which the attack has been set up to appear to have been instituted by.  The term is thought to originate from warships flying the flag of their enemy……

17 May 1915 – International Waters off the Coast of Ireland……

The Lusitania, a passenger liner carrying 1,959 passengers, was sunk due to a torpeado attack from the German Submarine U-20, killing 1,198 people.  The ship went down in 18 minutes which is unusually fast but was later known to be carrying 6 million pounds of amunition, artillery shells and explosives, contrary to US law (prohibiting the transportation of arms on civilian vessels).  This is thought to be a contributory factor to the rapid sinking and loss of life, it was suppressed and helped to galvanise opinion against Germany……

Although not a classic false flag operation, the ‘spin’ that the attack was against a civilian target was used to gain support in the US for their involvement in the war……

 

 

27 February 1933 – Berlin……

A fire at the Reichstag Building, seat of the German Parliament, was siezed upon by the Nazi Party as proof that Communists were plotting against the Government.  Adolph Hitler, who had been sworn in as the German Chancellor four weeks prior to the fire, persuaded President Paul Von Hindenburg to pass an emergency decree suspending civil liberties allowing the arrest of all Communists.  This gave the Nazi Party majority rule and the rest, as they say, is history……

Historians argue whether Van Der Lube, a Communist charged with starting the fire, acted alone however, the concencus is that the whole operation was planned by the Nazis; a classic false flag operation……

22 November 1963 – Dallas, Texas, USA……

At 12.30pm President John F. Kennedy was assainated whilst travelling in an open top vehicle.  After a ten month investigation by the Warren Commision it was established that the President was shot by Lee Harvey Oswald (the lone gunman).  Oswald was then assinated before being brought to trial by Jack Ruby, also acting alone……

In 1979 the US Select Committee on Assinations (HSCA) concluded that there was a ‘high probability’ JFK was assisnated as part of a conspiracy and that there was more than one gunman.  The HSCA failed to identify the conspiritors but ruled out the CIA, Soviet Union or organised crime groups……

As with many false flag operations controversy still reigns over who orchestrated the assasination.  Mission accumplished……

 

Iran/Iraq War 1980-1988……

The US has built power bases in the Middle East in Iran starting with the CIA-organised coup in 1953, where Iranian Prime Minister Mossadeq was replaced with the Shah of Iran Reza Pahlavi and then by his son Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.  Iran was equipped with the best western military equipment, including the American F-14 fighters, Phoenix missiles and the British Chieftain Tanks. Unfortunately there was in 1979 a coup of Ayatollah Khomeini replacing the Shah and founding an Islamic State.

After this, the US warmed up relations with their good Iraqi friend Saddam Hussein, and started to build a nation capable of challenging Iran.  Iraq acquired large numbers of effective weapons including factories able to produce older versions of gas warfare agents. These would later be called WMDs, which of course they were not, being WW1-vintage weapons.

The war broke out and was fought to exhaustion because third-party powers, especially Israel, were carefully monitoring the power balance supplying more weapons to the side which seemed to be loosing. “Too bad they both cannot loose” is how Kissinger evaluated this situation.

This is a case of several nations conducting false flag operations to achieve an objective.  The issue of WMDs would later be used to justify further intervention in Iraq……

Conclusion……

There are literally hundreds of examples of false flag operations carried out by governments of all nations, many of which have subsequently been confirmed by declassified documents but one nation above all appears to crop up time after time; the United States of America……

In future Dripping Tap articles I will cover the Oklahoma City bombing, the first World Trade Centre bombing, 7/7  and, of course, 9/11……
