Preparing For The Next False Flag

Given the behavior of the U.S. government in not just the last year, but in the last two hundred years, a false flag event is coming. The government used the explosion of the USS Maine in 1898, which newspapers blamed on Spain without evidence, to start the Spanish-American war. The government used the 1964 Gulf of Tonkin attack, which the U.S. brought upon by firing at Vietnamese boats without provocation, to start the Vietnam War. In 1990 the government used a false testimony alleging Iraqi atrocities to create support for the Persion Gulf War. In this moment of multiple U.S. war runup campaigns, it’s the rational choice to think another false flag is imminent.

It could come in the form of a chemical attack that’s falsely blamed on Bashar-al-Assad, as was hinted at this month when Al-Nusra and the White Helmets were revealed to be planning such a provocation. It could be an indirect false flag, like the effort to blame Iraq for 9/11 (which is already being repeated with the current effortto fraudulently link Iran to 9/11). Or it could be something truly titanic, Iike a nuclear attack that’s blamed on North Korea or Russia. But it’s almost certainly going to happen.
A prologue to it happened in April of last year, when the chemical attack in Khan Sheikhoun, Syria was used to justify air strikes against a Syrian air base. It made no sense for Assad to have perpetrated the attack. An international agreement in Assad’s favor was made right before the attack, and Assad knew such an action would provoke retribution against his government. When the U.N. later put out a report that promoted the official story about the attack, the report’s claims about the timing of the incident were inconsistent with those of eyewitness observers. Recently general James Mattis even admitted that there’s no evidence Assad is behind the attack. But none of that mattered to the war propaganda machine.
The media, the government, and supposedly trustworthy organizations like Human Rights Watch immediately put the blame on Assad. Skeptics were vilified, so much that when representative Tulsi Gabbard questioned the narrative, she lost support from many of her constituents, and Democratic leader Howard Dean urged her to resign from congress. “Fifteen years,” wrote Caitlin Johnstone on this year’s anniversary of the Iraq invasion, which was done through similar war deceptions. “I still have unused art supplies that are older than that. And yet when politicians and intelligence agencies say that Russia has committed an act of war against the US and Bashar al-Assad needs to be removed from power in Syria, mainstream Americans say ‘Yup, sounds about right, no further evidence required.’”
Neoconservative propagandists, especially The Guardian’s George Monbiot, have continued to attack those who oppose this latest war narrative. These attacks are part of the gaslighting strategy, where a manipulator gets the other person to question their own sanity. Gaslighting is most damaging when done by the state, since the state controls mass propaganda and conventional thought. This is how dissent is made invisible, and how history is erased so that the product of war can be sold.
The establishment narrative about the Khan Sheikhoun incident still hasn’t been solidified into the accepted history. Thanks to the efforts of Caitlin Johnstone, Robert Parry, and other alternative media journalists, millions of people know the real facts about the attack. And Tulsi Gabbard still has a good chance of being the next president. Our task is to expand these hopeful aspects by warning Americans about the war deceptions they’re being exposed to.
Do not be gaslighted into treating the deep state’s lies as truth. We are being told to trust in politicians, media outlets, and intelligence agencies whose purpose is to deceive us. Becoming insane as the state defines insanity is the way to survive.
