The Top US False-Flag Ops Against Iran Debunked

from 21st Century Wire:

In a time of heightened tensions between Iran and the United States, it is important that Mainstream Media war propaganda is confronted and explained.

A tactic used to demonize a country to justify attacks, must not be simply left alone. The following video, published for PRESS TV UK, tackles all of the potential False-Flag narratives and the timeline of anti-Iran propaganda. Watch:

Doug Casey on False Flags and Pretexts For the Next War

by Doug Casey, International Man:

International Man: People who look outside the mainstream narrative of historical events often encounter the term “false flag” attack. What does this mean exactly? Who uses this tactic?

Doug Casey: Let’s define this term exactly. The Oxford Dictionary defines a false flag as “A political or military act orchestrated in such a way that it appears to have been carried out by a party that is not in fact responsible.”

The concept of false flags has gotten a bad reputation in media and government circles and perhaps with the population in general, because they’ve come to be associated with conspiracy theories. And “conspiracy theory,” whether valid or not, is used as a pejorative.

THE TANKER INCIDENT: JAPAN SAYS NOT SO FAST…

by Joseph P. Farrell, Giza Death Star:

If you’re following the story about the attacks on the tankers in the Persian Gulf, then you’ll want to read today’s story, and the article from the Saker linked in today’s “Tidbits”, for there appear to be more holes in the story than in the ships themselves. The US-based narrative is saying that the attacks were caused by mines.

But Japan is saying “not so fast” according to this story from Zero Hedge shared by G.B.:

John Rubino – Iran False Flag, Drahi’s Last Stand and Facebook Goes Crypto

by Kerry Lutz, Financial Survival Network:

John Rubino returns… Does Iran really want a war with the US or was it a false flag operation to justify a war? We’ve seen this scenario happen over and over throughout history. And yet it still works almost every time it’s tried. Will this time be different? And Mario Draghi is at it again. He’s willing to cut rates to whatever it takes, except for one small problem, overnight rates on excess bank deposits are already negative. How negative can he go? Facebook goes crypto. A new crypto has been born and it could be the biggest one to date. They have a lot of institutional support and are well poised to become the dominant player. Will it be the first of many new currencies that are proprietary for company issuers.

False Flag? Iran Has Absolutely Nothing to Gain from Oman Tanker Attacks

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

The US appears to be pulling out all stops in their heated charge and war drum-beating intent on starting war with Iran.

(RT) There are men in Washington intent on going to war with Iran – and very few people doubt this fact. Why then, does the media keep warning us that conflict could break out “accidentally”? The US does not go to war by mistake.

A BIT OF CONFIRMATION ABOUT THOSE PERSIAN GULF ATTACKS?

by Joseph P. Farrell, Giza Death Star:

In the past few months, I’ve tried to avoid blogging much on this website about politics or geopolitics, because so much of it is just downright disgusting and emotionally draining. But today, I think it may be a kind of moral dereliction not to do so.

Last Thursday I recorded my News and Views from the Nefarium on the tanker attacks in the Persian Gulf. At the time, there wasn’t much to go on, except, of course, that U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeio was quick out of the gate to denounce Iran as the ne’er-do-well in chief behind the attacks.

Will A False Flag Iran War Cause A Financial Crisis?

by John Rubino, Dollar Collapse:

Just a couple of weeks ago the financial world’s biggest worry was the plunging price of oil. Supply was up, stockpiles were building and speculation was pointing towards $40 a barrel, a price at which the fracking/shale oil “miracle” would evaporate. A trillion dollars of related junk debt would default, taking a big part of the leveraged speculating community along for the ride.

Then it all changed. Someone attacked some ships and oil infrastructure in the Middle East, the US and Saudi Arabia accused Iran, and now the fear is that a major regional war will interrupt the flow of oil, sending its price way up and causing a financial crisis at least as severe as a shale oil debt collapse.

Provocations in the Gulf of Oman: Will John Bolton Get His War on Iran?

by Michael Welch, Prof Michel Chossudovsky, Pepe Escobar, and Yves Engler, Global Research:

“America’s declared policy should be ending Iran’s 1979 Islamic Revolution before its 40th anniversary…Recognizing a new Iranian regime in 2019 would reverse the shame of once seeing our diplomats held hostage for 444 days.” – John Bolton (January 15, 2018) [1]

The All Too Convenient “Tanker Attacks” as US Seeks War with Iran

by Tony Cartalucci, 21st Century Wire:

…it would be far more preferable if the United States could cite an Iranian provocation as justification for the airstrikes before launching them. Clearly, the more outrageous, the more deadly, and the more unprovoked the Iranian action, the better off the United States would be. Of course, it would be very difficult for the United States to goad Iran into such a provocation without the rest of the world recognizing this game, which would then undermine it.  – Brookings Institution, “Which Path to Persia?” 2009 

Think US Media Won’t Help Lead Nation Into War With Iran Based on Flimsy or False Intelligence? Looks Like They Already Are

by Jake Johnson, Jon Queally, Common Dreams:

“Do U.S. reporters, anchors, and editors really want more Middle Eastern blood on their hands? If not, they need to fix their rather credulous and increasingly hawkish coverage of Iran—and fix it fast.”

If there were any lingering hopes that the corporate media learned from its role in perpetuating the lies that led to the 2003 invasion of Iraq and would never again help start a Middle East war on the basis of false or flimsy evidence, the headlines that blared across the front pages of major U.S. news websites Thursday night indicated that such hopes were badly misplaced.
