Remember when Ronald Reagan thought he had rock solid proof that Muammar Gaddafi was involved with terrorist activity and Reagan ordered a bombing of Libya. Well, it looks like history is repeating itself.
Donald Trump was just told by our “intelligence” agencies (you know… the same ones that didn’t see 911 coming) that Syrian president Bashar Assad had just ordered a gas attack that killed innocent civilians. As a result, Trump has ordered a missile strike against Syria.
There was just one little problem with the Reagan attack on Libya: The intelligence that led to Reagan bombing Libya was wrong, based on phony radio signals transmitted by the Mossad from a transmitter they secretly set up in Libya as noted by a former Mossad agent here.
And there may be a problem with Trump’s attack on Syria: The poison gas attack may have been a false flag by another power (likely Israel) designed to spoil relations between the U.S. and Syria, which looked like they were improving so that ISIS in Syria would be defeated.
An article on ZeroHedge reports “According to former Congressman Ron Paul, the chemical weapons attack in Khan Sheikhoun that killed 30 children and has led to calls for the Trump administration to intervene in Syria could have been a false flag attack…”
“’It doesn’t make any sense for Assad under these conditions to all of a sudden use poison gases – I think there’s zero chance he would have done this deliberately,’ said Paul.”
“The former Congressman went on to explain how the incident was clearly being exploited by neo-cons and the deep state to enlist support for war.”
“It’s the neo-conservatives who are benefiting tremendously from this because it’s derailed the progress that has already been made moving toward a more peaceful settlement in Syria,’ said Paul.”
“Many have questioned why Assad would be so strategically stupid as to order a chemical weapons attack and incite the wrath of the world given that he is closer than ever to winning the war against ISIS and jihadist rebels.”
One way to avoid getting fooled by false flag operations is to mind your own business. The U.S. was never meant to be the world’s police force. Past experience shows that we rarely know what the true picture is in foreign lands, and the more foreign, the less likely we know anything.
