"A Pretext Is Needed": A False Flag May Be Imminent To Drag U.S. Into War

Tyler Durden's picture

As SHTFPlan.com's Mac Slavo warns, "The scenario is plenty likely."

With so many bizarre events taking place leading up to the election, few Americans are even grounded in reality any more. Perhaps the powers that be, with new and ready scapegoats – like Donald Trump, ISIS or Russia – think that the populace can again be convinced to surrender their liberties and consent to war if a new attack is staged.


They have done it, and they will do it again. This is standard operating procedure:


All America’s Wars Begin with False Flags (and WWIII Will Too)


The narrative under Hillary Clinton will be terrifying, as she destroys every last safeguard against tyranny this country has left standing. The smell of war is in the air, and every patriot should be on guard for the propaganda and salesmanship of another big lie. What do you think will happen?

False Flag Attack Imminent in Syria as Globalists Engineer World War III

by WakingTimes.com's Isaac Davis

Americans are sleepwalking into World War III, and as events in Syria are shaping up it could come any moment as the biggest October surprise ever. At this stage in the conflict, we are one minor event away from all out war between the world’s major super powers, an event which would most certainly result in nuclear war. All that is needed is for the right type of false flag event to serve as provocation.

“In naval warfare, a “false flag” refers to an attack where a vessel flies a flag other than their true battle flag before engaging their enemy. It is a trick, designed to deceive the enemy about the true nature and origin of an attack.” [Source]

As the world pretends to be ruled by democratically elected governments, and as the world’s people feign freedom under an ever-expanding surveillance, police and warfare state, some semblance of pretext is needed in order to manufacture sufficient consent for the oligarchy’s standing plans of forcing us into expansion of the Orwellian Permanent War.

A brief look at how this tactic has historically been used helps to predict what is certainly forthcoming in Syria, as paraphrased from James Corbett of the Corbett Report.

1780’s – The Swedish-Russian War of 1788-1790 began when Swedish troops were intentionally dressed up as Russian troops then sent to attack their own border with Finland, effectively tricking the public into believing Russia had attacked, thereby kicking off a war will killed thousands.


1931 – The Japanese army deliberately destroyed a portion of a Japanese owned railway, then blamed it on Chinese dissidents to justify the military occupation of Manchuria.


1939 – Nazi war engineers dressed up Polish prisoners in Polish military uniforms and directed them to attack a German radio station. They prisoners were shot dead and their bodies left on the scene as evidence of Polish aggression, leading to Hitler’s invasion of Poland, signifying the official start of World War II.


1954 – Operation Susannah was an Israeli effort to convince the British military to continue their military presence in the Suez Canal, in support of Israeli interests. Egyptian patsies were hired to detonate bombs in American and British civilian targets, then blamed on the Muslim Brotherhood.


1962 – “In 1962 the US Joint Chiefs of Staff authored a document called Operation Northwoods calling for the US government to stage a series of fake attacks, including the shooting down of military or civilian US aircraft, the destruction of a US ship, sniper attacks in Washington, and other atrocities, to blame on the Cubans as an excuse for launching an invasion. President Kennedy refused to sign off on the plan and was killed in Dallas the next year.” [Source]


1964 – A U.S. destroyer patrolling the Gulf of Tonkin was attacked by torpedoes, ostensibly by the North Vietnamese, thereby causing President Johnson the authorization of the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, thus beginning U.S. military involvement in Vietnam. It is now known that no attack actually occurred and that the NSA was involved in fabricating this event.



1967 – “In June 1967 the Israelis attacked the USS Liberty, a US Navy technical research ship, off the coast of Egypt. The ship was strafed relentlessly for hours in an apparent attempt to blame the attack on Egypt and draw the Americans into the Six Day War, but amazingly the crew managed to keep it afloat. In 2007 newly released NSA intercepts confirmed that the Israelis knew they were attacking an American ship, not an Egyptian ship as their cover story has maintained.” [Source]


1999 – A series of devastating bombings on civilian apartment buildings in Russia were blamed on Chechen terrorists, although Russian FSB agents were later caught using the exact same type of bombs in what was publicly called a security exercise.


2001 – The 9/11 attacks in New York and Washington were blamed on 19 Al Qaeda terrorists and immediately used the pretext for beginning the Global War on Terror, of which the political doctrine for this was already in place and in play. 15 years later, information about the true nature of the attacks is still surfacing, proving that the 9/11 Commission was a whitewash to help catalyze public support still ongoing wars which were planned prior to 9/11.

“Further, the process of transformation [of the military], even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event––like a new Pearl Harbor.”[Source]

Furthermore, other examples of historical significance demonstrate how minor or ambiguous events are seized on and deliberately used as propaganda to achieve the greater objective of drawing nations into war.

1904 – The sinking of the British ocean liner The Lusitania off the coast of Ireland, which was carrying tons of war materials from America, was blamed on German u-boats, leading to a severe diplomatic row which brought the United States into World War I. Speculation remains as to what exactly happened to the Lusitania, however, the official explanation is highly suspicious, and the event was used to achieve the objectives of war financiers to broaden the conflict.


1933 – A German parliamentary building in the Reichstag was set ablaze one month after Hitler’s election to the office of Chancellor. It is believed that three Bulgarian communists were to blame, however this is contentious among historians. The event was heavily propagandized by the Nazi party to galvanize support for war.

One can also include in this list an ever-growing growing handful of European and American domestic terror attacks such as the London bombings of 2005, and the Bataclan theatre massacre of Paris in 2015. To further expand on the historical precedent of using false flag attacks to propel agendas of state aggression, many instances of assassination and military intervention into the politics of sovereign nations around the world in order create consent for militarism could be included.

Final Thoughts

As the U.S. continues to aid and support ISIS, Al-Nusra and other terrorist organizations in its ploy to overthrow the Assad government for the primary benefit of Israel, a false flag event signaling the beginning of a direct confrontation with Russia could come at any time. At present it looks as though the most likely scenario would be something along the lines of the USS Liberty attack, which would involve the deliberate targeting of our own forces while creating the perception of a Russian attack on U.S. or NATO components.

The situation in Syria is ripe for exactly this kind of covert, subversive tactic.  There is historical precedence to suggest that a Syrian false flag event is imminent, therefore people the world over must prepare to resist and to survive this.

No profit for Bankers, Wall Street and the DC polticians without war.

Peace is not profitable. And your blood is of no conern to them; you are canon fooder. That's all.

That's why they dislike Trump; he is a negotiator, not a life-long war mongering government parasite. He has siad it many times that these conflicts all could have been negotiated without war.

If either a financial collapse is no longer avoidable and/or the "elites" believe that Trump will win, then war is the "solution". Putin isn't going to take ANY bait in either Syria OR Ukraine until after the election so a false flag appears to be likely. All those US jets dressed up in pretty Russian drsses look to be high on the list? Fly one of those remotely over Syria and have it shot down by a "moderate rebel" using a MANPAD and there you go.......with lots of "eye witnesses".

The faked assassination of the president elect is the trigger. By hook and by crook Hillary will "win". Then between her victory and inauguration she will be "assassinated" by "Russian agents". Martial law will come in force to round up anyone questioning the narrative and the rest of the country will unite behind the flag and the new President (Hillarys current running mate) for the full scale war on Russia.

This event will be the final, long planned nail in the coffin of the republic.

So the way I see it is that Russia and U.S. (both still majority white countries) and possibly Europe might end up wiping up to near extinction the white race. Nothing like a good civil war between us whites and Christians. And who ultimately will benefit from such a civil strife but Muslims. I guess the way I read scripture (assuming this is right). That Russia will destroy U.S. first. The nations will be mad at Russia because nobody buys their crap anymore and everyone goes hungry. Russia will be the main white superpower from this point. Then at a much later point is that Russia will go to war in the middle east with Israel and huge numbers of people will perish on both sides along with other nation states. Finally the last days thanks to all our stupid infighting that will reduce our numbers, will be owned by Muslims. Who will actively force Jizya, conversions or beheadings, and wear the serpent headband of what represents the Koran symbol on their bible.

Is it not bizarre that Europeans keep using their massive war power on each other? It just reminds me of some toothless Afghan they were interviewing after their war and liberation from Russia. Here is this aged and evil muslim sitting there asking if Russia and U.S. have such huge stockpiles of weapons against each other why they didn't use them? At the time I thought he was doubting they had such weapons, but now thinking about his expressions he was joyous that we'd use them on each other. How sad is that for us and exciting for them to hear our self hatred over pettiness? It's my observation that white people on average do hate themselves. I've seen it over the years that they literally lay out the red carpet for anyone not of their race, but will actively try to ignore or even create hardship for their own. I'm dismayed about it really. I'm not racist out of hate but I do love my own and I love European culture and peoples. I love our religion and quite frankly I think our countries are full enough and we need to stop all this petty war bickering, while the Ottoman empire is rebuilding just due to serious reproduction issues. We either start laying down the barb wire together or we end up dying together one by one slowly.

roddcarlson's picture

Also when I mean laying down the barb wire. I do not mean invading their countries. I mean simply stay out of theirs but don't let them take one inch of our own. I absolutely hate these wars in the Middle East. Stirring up all these bugs and then letting them resettle in our lands. I like homogoneous Europe the way it was. Diversity is ugly. It's ugly when we are in their countries. And it's just as ugly when they are in ours. All this crap is so invasive it's beyond belief how anyone would go along with it, unless they are just stupid or evil. Quite frankly there is both going on in our countries.

My point of finality is that when you have two huge superpowers sitting there positioning for the great war. Don't be too suprised if a false flag comes from a third party that benefits if the two end up destroying each other. Not all false flags are created by the two empires in expansion. Sometimes a third party gains at the weakening of the first two. Just another reason why playing these provocation games should be discouraged.

A Cyber war is a very very good scape-goat to blame a stock market melt-down on ... when the circuit breakers start kicking; they can convienently blame it on Russian hacking.

If we get a stock market crash just before the election - it ain't gonna be Barrack/Billarys fault - it'll be those pesky Rooskies; wink, wink.

I agree. When Trump wins the election TPTB will be forced to start a war BEFORE he takes office. Once he takes office he'll start working WITH Russia and Putin to take out ISIS and then they (the banksters) won't be able to use Russia as a pretence to start a war to cover the collapse of the banking / financial system and Quatar won't get their gas pipeline to Europe.

This article is extremely timely.  Obama (Barry Saetoro) reportedly met TODAY with his cadre of psychopathic military brass in order to discuss tactics for escalation in the drive to punish the Syrian government and people for their interference in the now-shelved Qatar pipeline proposal. 

We should be particularly concerned about the reports of U.S. warplanes being painted with fake Russian markings.  A "friendly fire" incident would make the ideal pretext for escalation. 

Recall other recent hoaxes: the old Russian T-72 tanks purchased by Kiev from Hungary, apparently for the failed purpose of depicting Russian "invasion" (a low point of that sham was the satellite images of a "Russian Convoy" that were exposed as having been taken from a video game). Then there is the "Assad gassed his own people" hoax, subsequently exposed.

We know to expect a fresh dose of bullshit whenever controlled agencies begin to squawk about "humanitarian crisis."  Psychopaths only care about "humanitarian crisis" when it serves the agenda to manipulate sentiment as cover for something particularly filthy.

No it has already started.

"According to both The White House and Pentagon’s own definitions, a cyber-attack is to be considered “An act of war.” So by it’s own definition, are we at war?"

The White House commissioned a major study of cyberspace, International Strategy for Cyberspace (5/11), which found that

States have an inherent right to self-defense that may be triggered by certain aggressive acts in cyberspace…. Certain hostile acts conducted through cyberspace could compel actions under the commitments we have with our military treaty partners…. When warranted, the United States will respond to hostile acts in cyberspace as we would any other threat to our country.

Glenn Greenwald notes, the Pentagon is similarly on the record arguing that cyberattacks are acts of war:

Needless to say, if any cyber-attack is directed at the U.S. –rather than by the U.S.–it will be instantly depicted as an act of unparalleled aggression and evil: Terrorism. Just last year, the Pentagon decreed that any cyberattack on the U.S. would be deemed “an act of war.”


So exeptionallism is all well and good, by the US's own standards, they are about to commit acts of war against Russia.

Dr. Duke and Dr. MacDonald: Media Complicit in Hillary’s Support for ISIS

They talked about the new evidence verifying what Dr. Duke has been saying all along about Hillary Clinton and the U.S. zio-establishment supporting ISIS. The irrelevant and often baseless stories about Donald Trump’s attitudes towards women must be viewed as part of a “vast left-wing conspiracy” to cover-up Hillary’s crimes. Except that the right-wing establishment is just as complicit, and its not just Hillary’s crimes that are covered up.


Putin, as much surprised as I am by my viewpoint on him, is the ONLY World power leader today who is acting in a respectable and restrained manner. He has repeatedly surprised me over the last few years and I do not think that he is a bad guy, on the contrary he has shown himself to be the BEST world power leader today.

Nuclear war MAY erupt, God hoping it does not.
But the Tribe has MANY ways to kill off Whites:
Back in the early 1980s ABC News Radio Broadcaster Paul Harvey warned America about the resurgence of diseases that we had long ago eradicated and of NEW diseases from the 3rd World, he said immigrants were bringing them in.
Apparently Mr Harvey's brave attempts went unheeded as the masses kept watching the Televitz just as in Fahrenheit 451. And note yet ANOTHER 3rd world MD. Good Lord WHEN will Whites WAKE UP?!!!

I POST IT AGAIN....Why is the US Air Force painting it jets to look like Russian fighters?



And this quote for the lazy:


In addition to the United States repainting its warplanes to resemble Russian military livery, it is also fairly obvious that America’s F-18 is fairly similar to the Russian Su-34 in appearance. In fact, only a military expert can tell the difference, but only when pictures are presented in high resolution. The folding wings of the American F-18 can only be seen in on the runway, and as for the vertical stabilizers of the F-18, they are only slightly different from the Russian Su-34.

Thus, if an American jet is be filmed by somebody’s shaking hands on a smartphone, or even a semi-professional camera, it will be virtually indistinguishable from the Su-34.

The only notable distinguishing marks left on the repainted F-18 is a white star on a dark background. However, it’s tail features the bright red star all of Russian’s military jets bear.

In such circumstances, an American F-18, while being virtually indistinguishable from a Russian jet, can launch, wittingly or unwittingly, a classic false flag attack. The possible targets are plenty: humanitarian convoys, residential areas, or even US military personnel. Should this attacked be filmed, Washington will end up having “irrefutable evidence” of “Russian aggression.”




Mtnoise255's picture

Why is the US Air Force painting it jets to look like Russian fighters? Because they units that simulate Russian or other nations aircraft in training missions against USAF jets. They have been doing this since the 1970's. And an F-18 looks like an SU-34 enough to follow someone? Hardy.

CNONC's picture

I don't trust our government or military either, but he's right.  Also, you tend to get very good at identifying the things that are trying to kill you.  Misidentifying a F/A 18 for any Russian aircraft would be like mistaking a T72 for an M60.  Ain't gonna happen.  There are plenty of actual Russian made aircraft in the hands of our allies in the region to mount a false flag attack.  If you want to push this scenario, show me an Egyptian MiG 23 being repainted in SAAF colors, and you have my attention.
