Gulf Of Tonkin 2? US Official Claims “Highly Likely” Iran Behind Oman Tanker Attacks

from ZeroHedge:

Update 4: Nobody has stepped forward to take responsibility for Thursday’s suspected torpedoing of two oil tankers in the Persian Gulf, and Iran’s Foreign Minister has argued that Iran has nothing to gain and everything to lose by provoking the Europeans and Japanese, but that hasn’t stopped Washington from beating the ol’ war drum.

According to CBS News, a senior American defense official told the channel’s top national correspondent that “it’s highly likely Iran caused these attacks.” He also dismissed Iran’s claim that it helped rescue the crews of both ships as “patently false,” adding that the USS Bainbridge picked up 21 crew members. Iran said it dispatched a rescue team that picked up all 44 crew members from the two damaged vessels.

It appears that more may have been going on during the night of the 1 October Las Vegas shooting then authorities would like the general public to know about

Mention of second and third 1 October shooters appears in official FBI report obtained by Intellihub.

LAS VEGAS (INTELLIHUB) — A female who attended the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival on the night of October 1, 2017, where 58 people lost their lives to automatic gunfire told the investigators from the Federal Bureau of Investigation that she saw a second shooter firing a high-powered automatic rifle from a parking lot located to the east of the venue where country music singer Jason Aldean and his band were playing onstage at the time of the shooting.

GLADIO TERROR: Virginia Beach False Flag Mass Shooting Ordered by Deep State to Distract from SPYgate + Gun Control

from State of the Nation:

False flag terrorist attacks have become the preferred means of distraction of the American people.  Epic scandals like SPYgate require major distractions to change the national conversation—FAST! See ANOTHER MIND-CONTROLLED PATSY: Virginia Beach Mass Shooting frames a ‘disgruntled employee’ as the fall guy

Mass shootings in high-profile venues are particularly carried out to divert the attention of the body politic when Deep State is under a LOT of pressure.  That pressure is coming from the necessity of covering up SPYgate.

The alleged attack on tankers in the Gulf

by George Callaghan, The Duran:

The whole thing has shades of the Gulf of Tonkin Incident.

Saudi oil tankers were attacked in the Gulf a few days ago – so we were told. An oil tanker is the most flammable thing afloat yet these tankers did not go on fire. Nobody was injured or killed on any of the four tankers. It seems fishy. If the Saudis wanted to stage a fake attack this is how they would have done it. If indeed there as any damage to these ships it could have been a false flag operation.

Deep state desperation: A false flag is their last remaining option to save themselves from being exposed and destroyed

by Mike Adams, Natural News:

Just four days ago, President Trump ordered the declassification of “bucket five” documents which will show how Obama’s FBI and DOJ actively conspired to commit treason against the Trump administration through illegal spying, FISA court fraud, planting spies and more.

This is the beginning of the end for the treasonous, criminal deep state under which America has suffered for far too long, spanning multiple presidential administrations including Obama, Bush and Clinton.

OPCW, Douma and the Post Truth World

by James ONeill, New Eastern Outlook:

The Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) came into effect on 29 April 1997. 193 Member States of the United Nations have ratified it. The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) is the United Nations body charged with the task of monitoring compliance with the CWC. It is based in The Hague. Among its powers are the powers to investigate allegations of the use of chemical weapons, and (since June 2018) the power to assign blame.

The investigations are carried out by a Fact Finding Mission, which compromises a team of experts from the relevant scientific disciplines. Additional technical assistance is frequently sought from bodies external to the OPCW, typically university departments.

Smart Celebs: Roger Waters, Susan Sarandon & Pamela Anderson question official story on Douma ‘chemical attack’

from 21st Century Wire:

Finally, a number of influential, high-profile celebrities have dared to break rank and challenge the official WMD line on Syria. This latest development looks like it could be one of the final nails in the coffin of the official story of the alleged ‘chemical weapons attack’ which the US, UK and French governments claimed took place in April 2018 in Douma, Syria. 

Last week, a new leaked report from a member of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) revealed how the official report was carefully curated to try and hide any dissenting opinion or analysis which veered away from the narrative being propped-up by the US, UK, France and its allies. Clearly, the US and its allies are desperate to try to preserve what is increasingly looking like a fictional depiction of events in Syria, and a clear staged hoax perpetrated by the western-backed pseudo ‘search and rescue’ NGO known as the White Helmets. Their fabricated story and ‘chemical attack’ hoax was also aided and arranged on the ground by US and Gulf-backed terrorists Jaysh al-Islam, the US, UK and France launched air strikes against Syria on April 14, 2018.

CONFIRMED: Chemical Weapons Assessment Contradicting Official Syria Narrative Is Authentic

by Caitlin Johnstone, Caitlin Johnstone:

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has begun responding to queries by the press about a leaked document which contradicts official OPCW findings on an alleged chemical weapons attack last year in Douma, Syria. The prepared statement they’ve been using in response to these queries confirms the authenticity of the document.

To recap, a few days ago the Working Group on Syria, Propaganda and Media (WGSPM) published a document signed by a man named Ian Henderson, whose name is seen listed in expert leadership positions on OPCW documents from as far back as 1998 and as recently as 2018. It’s unknown who leaked the document and what other media organizations they may have tried to send it to.

SUPPRESSED OPCW FINDING: War-Crime Likely Perpetrated by U.S. Against Syria on 14 April 2018

by Eric Zuesse, The Duran:

On May 13th, Tim Hayward of the Working Group on Syria made public on his website an utterly damning document that had been suspiciously excluded from the final investigative report by the Organization for Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) regarding the U.S.-and-allied allegation that on 7 April 2018 the Syrian Government had sarin-attacked residents in its town of Douma and had killed a large number of non-combatants. Seven days after that alleged incident, the U.S. and two of its allies, UK and France, massively missile-invaded Syria on April 14th, in alleged international ‘response’ to that alleged national war-crime on the part of Syria’s Government. It now turns out that that alleged national war-crime was totally staged by America’s own proxy-soldiers, Islamic terrorists who were trying to overthrow Syria’s Government, and so the attack against Syria on 14 April 2018 by U.S., UK and France, constitutes an international war-crime, an unequivocal violation of the U.N.’s Charter.

After Army Col. Warns of False Flag to Start War with Iran, US Blames Iran for Attacks

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Often, the American mainstream media becomes a de facto government employee, taking the claims of U.S. officials and reporting them as proven fact — and nothing exemplifies this penchant better than reporting on the Gulf of Tonkin incident — perhaps one of most flagrant lies ever dreamed up as a justification for war.

Who Really Gains from the Gulf Ship ‘Sabotage’

by Finian Cunningham, Strategic Culture:

After dramatic and patently scripted warnings of “Iranian aggression” by bellicose US officials, there then follows – conveniently enough – an alleged sabotage incident in the Persian Gulf region implicating Iran.

Meanwhile, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo poses with a straight face that his country doesn’t want war with Iran. His comments warp credulity given that American forces have suddenly escalated firepower in the Persian Gulf for the purpose of “responding” to alleged Iranian infractions.

Typically, Western news media are “reporting” (or rather, “echoing”) the purported sabotage incident as if it were fact, basing their source of information on Saudi and Emirati officials, sources which have a vested interest in creating a war pretext against Iran.
