A list of false flags

Zerohedge supplies a partial list:

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

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 been largely 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.

Keep these in
mind as you consider the current casus belli being bruited about by
Obama and the bi-factional ruling party’s representatives in Congress. 
The logic they are presenting is really rather impressive when combined
with the apparent facts. Because al-Qaida affiliated rebels losing the
civil war in Syria mishandled chemical weapons provided by Saudi Arabia,
America must act as al-Qaida’s air force and attack the Assad regime.

does this make any sense?  My feeling is that the ruling party is going
to have to come up with a more emotionally appealing false flag before
they can get the votes in Congress.  If I were in charge of designing
it, I’d give the Syrian rebels a poison gas missile or three, preferably
loaded with Zyklon B, have them launch it at an Israeli kindergarten,
then blame it on the Assad regime.

The fact that it
would make absolutely no sense whatsoever for Assad to suddenly attack
Jewish children with poison gas reminiscent of The Very Baddest Thing To
Happen To Anyone Ever In Human History wouldn’t even slow down the
Christian Zionists and Anti-antisemitic White Liberals in their
frothing-mad rush to nuke Damascus.

There is certainly no shortage of evidence that the situation currently being presented to the public is a false one:

“Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., who is aggressively lobbying against a
military strike on Syria, says the Obama administration has manipulated
intelligence to push its case for U.S. involvement in the country’s
two-year civil war. Grayson made the accusation in an interview published
Wednesday by The Atlantic and offered more detail in a Thursday
discussion with U.S. News. He says members of Congress are being given
intelligence briefings without any evidence to support administration
claims that Syrian leader Bashar Assad ordered the use of chemical

And while it could be more of the usual Middle East bluffoonery, as per Saddam “The Mother of All Battles” Hussein,  there appear to be indications that the Iranians aren’t necessarily going to play according to the rules of the Great Game according to the Great Powers.

Alireza Forghani, the former governor of southern Iran’s Kish
Province, threw down the gauntlet last week. Forghani is an analyst and
strategy specialist in the supreme leader’s camp and closely aligned
with Mehdi Taeb, who heads the regime’s Ammar Strategic Base, a radical
think thank, and thus speaks with the blessing of the Islamic regime.

“Hopefully Obama will be pigheaded enough to attack Syria, and then
we will see the … loss of U.S. interests [through terrorist attacks],”
he threatened. “In just 21 hours [after the attack on Syria], a family
member of every U.S. minister [department secretary], U.S. ambassadors,
U.S. military commanders around the world will be abducted. And then 18
hours later, videos of their amputation will be spread [around the

I’d be a little more skeptical if it weren’t for the fact that there are as many Iranian agents in the USA as Iran felt like putting in place, thanks to the insane immigration policies.
