IT COULD BE COMING …
As the “War on Terror” heats up again following the United States’ foolish re-engagement in the Middle East, increasingly dire warnings are pointing to the possibility of terrorist attacks against the American homeland.
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is reportedly already in Mexico preparing to launch a wave of vehicular bombings along the U.S. border. Or so says Rick Perry, the Texas governor who is using the terror threat to burnish his 2016 presidential credentials.
Meanwhile in Washington, D.C., the typical fearmongering has been ramped up considerably in recent weeks – with the administration of Barack Obama escalating its rhetoric regarding the alleged danger ISIS poses to the American homeland. “Republican” Senators are also joining in the fearmongering, with one even suggesting ISIS is “rapidly developing” the technology required to level an American city.
At this point in the process it’s worth raising a couple of very important points …
First, there very well could be a legitimate terror threat on the U.S. border – and it very well could be related to ISIS. If so, this would fall under the “actions have consequences” category, in which violent militants respond to the meddling of the American government in places where it doesn’t belong (i.e. Syria, Gaza, Iraq or Ukraine).
Don’t get us wrong: America should absolutely act (and act with overwhelming force) if it uncovers a specific, credible threat to the U.S. homeland. But that’s not what’s happening here. In Iraq, our latest bombings were ostensibly humanitarian in nature – with a secondary goal of weakening ISIS capabilities. That’s ironic because in Syria taxpayers supported ISIS and other groups fighting against president Bashar al-Assad. Meanwhile in Gaza the federal government is subsidizing the Israeli war against the Palestinians – and in both Ukraine and Iraq we helped overthrow democratically elected rulers (including one in Iraq who was hand-picked by our Central Intelligence Agency).
In fact the same warmongers who wanted to invade Iran last year now want an alliance with the Muslim nation – ostensibly to stop the spread of ISIS.
And all of these ridiculous games are being played while our own nation’s economic outlook worsens …
Such a haphazard, hypocritical and costly interventionist approach serves no core American national security objective … and in fact invites violence against our country.
Which brings us to our second key point: That’s exactly what the warmongers want.
Wait … what?
U.S. warmongers like John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Obama’s defense secretary Chuck Hagel know the American people aren’t interested in fighting another war in the Middle East. In fact the public explicitly rejected an escalation in Syria – marking one of the first times in American history that the military-industrial complex was expressly rebuked.
The grisly beheading of American journalist James Foley by his ISIS captors appears to have been enough to maintain popular support for the current U.S. bombing campaign – and it may even push the needle far enough to start a Syrian bombings – but it is insufficient for the military-industrial complex’s long-term needs.
The only way to build sustained public support for ongoing American military operations in the Arab world is if America itself is attacked – by ISIS.
And if you think your government is above facilitating – or even perpetrating – such an attack, think again.
The website Alt-Market.com ran a post late last week discussing the possibility of a “false flag” attack on U.S. soil.
What’s a “false flag?” Easy: It’s when a country attacks itself (or permits itself to be attacked) in an effort to generate public support for armed action against a common enemy – in this case, ISIS.
“I believe the time is in fact ripe for a large scale false-flag on American soil,” the post’s author, Brandon Smith, wrote. “It may be a singular attack limited to a city or region, or, numerous smaller attacks executed in concert. I see the media overload of ISIS fever as a means to condition the public to believe in the ISIS myth – the myth that they are a sophisticated international super-terrorist conglomerate; a real life Legion of Doom. If Americans are conned into buying this myth, they may also be fooled into abandoning their Constitutional liberties and natural freedoms in the face of a well planned attack blamed on ISIS elements.”
Is Smith crazy? No. He’s done his homework on the role western intelligence has played in the formation of ISIS – including the unexplained detention and release of current ISIS “caliph” Ibrahim (a.k.a. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi) by U.S. forces in Iraq. He’s also done his homework regarding the role former U.S. detainees played in the 2012 attack on the American embassy in Libya that killed four U.S. citizens (including America’s ambassador to Libya).
“For centuries, political and financial elites have been sinking ships, setting buildings on fire, assassinating diplomats, overthrowing elected leaders, and blowing people up, then blaming these disasters on convenient scapegoats so that they can induce fear in the public and transfer more power to themselves,” he writes.
Hard to argue that point …
It’s also hard to argue that if a large-scale U.S. attack were to be successfully pinned on ISIS, that warmongers in Washington would be able to spend America’s blood and treasure with impunity – anywhere and in whatever denominations they wanted.
In other words the whole post-9/11 cycle of suppressed domestic freedom and costly military intervention overseas would repeat itself … hastening the erosion of our freedoms and digging future generations of taxpayers an even deeper hole.
Shocking! I am already pulling out of storage my “Truther Tin Foil Hat”. Perhaps it is time for a new one. Liz, I could use your fashion expertise.
” Liz, I could use your fashion expertise.”
Liz has a not-so-secret admirer . . . .
Apparently, I do to. Are you thinking what I’m thinking. Triangulation…..?
” Are you thinking what I’m thinking. Triangulation…..?”
LOL . . . BT – you are quite the witty guy – I’m afraid to answer that one though!
“witty guy?” When a man is thinking about sex, all his synapses are firing. Unfortunately, when he is thinking about sex and trying to concentrate on something else, he’s dumb as rocks.
Are you thinking what I’m thinking.
What are the odds of that happening?
Make it 2 !
I’d be afraid I’d cut myself on her hip bones.
“BEWARE THE “FALSE FLAG” ATTACK”
Wonder if any of those flag lapel pins (you know the ones that must be worn 24/7/365 – even when taking a shower – or else be accused of being a Commie) are “false flags”?
taking a shower
btw… you forgot to turn on your shower cam this morning… fyi.
Folks, the cockroaches are reading “THE WHITE FLAG PRINCIPLE”……. do not believe or trust ANY of them.
“Folks, the cockroaches are reading . . .”
And the next thing you know they’ll be doing writing and rithmetic . . .
Cockroaches can’t read… they’re bugs! How can *they* cut the power?
archy is a cockroach – he also can type!
Is he with the tea party?
This is about a cockroach farmer…
we have to get out of here! Th th…they’re…
If we don’t fight them here, we’ll be fighting them there.
LOWER THE PORTCULLIS..!!
— RAISE THE DRAWBRIDGE..!!
—— MORE ARCHERS TO THE TOWERS..!!
——— HIDE THE WOMEN AND CHILDREN..!!
THE TOWERS SHOULD BE MACHICOLATIONS.
—- BOILING OIL AT THE MEURTRIÉRE..!!
The French can create pretty words for gruesome devices. (Guillotine)
(MEURTRIÉRE) — murderess..??
Sorta like a foyer between doors where boiling oil can be poured down on those trapped in the “kill zone”.
Oh, where is the hunchback in times like these?
Does simply no one teach castle architecture anymore?
Yell, “Retreat to the motte!!” and they would scurry around aimlessly.
MERDEIÉRE – shingaputatito
??? – I’ll just have to accept that this is something good for the defenders and bad for the attackers….
I’ve got a sandbagged, air-cooled M-60 machine gun emplacement in the front yard under a silver maple with an escape tunnel leading to a survival shelter in the back yard.
It’s left over from Y2k.
Probably the “murder hole” for pouring boiling or flaming oil down onto the castle entranceway.
Throw the charts from the bridge! Ramming speed!
I’m much more concerned with the ‘False American’ attack, like FITS, Obama…and Ravenel (I thought he was renouncing his citizenship?)….
MIdterm elections are more important to the libs than any theat from ISIS, real or fabricated. The left will play out and use the events in Ferguson to further divide the country and rally support for the left. Sharpton & Jesse are equally despised by the right and the left, but will be the race baiting pawns to unite the uninformed against the conservative sect. Not one looter or pillager in Ferguson could tell you what ISIS stands for or whats happening in the mid-east. They don’t care,… and the left knows it.
Holy shit- we’ve really turned a corner into fantasy land now boys! “False flag” attack nonsense is the bailiwick of Alex Jones, Infowars, and the web kooky-luminati set. This is just awesome; next we’ll move into the stories about the gold missing from Fort Knox, the FEMA death camps, and those pesky “black helicopters.”
When you discount the wackos, make sure you’re not throwing out the CIA plans with the back water.
You didn’t strike me as a FEMA death camp guy! besides, you don’t even have their storyline right- it’s not the CIA, it’s all of the Homeland Security agencies (FEMA, ICE, etc.) and the NSA…
Bunchem bastiches lie for a paycheck. The lower your IQ the crazier you gotta be to be patriotic .
It’s not the CIA, its…
yeah, yeah, yeah… the protocols of Zion.
“The lower your IQ the crazier you gotta be to be patriotic.” That has to be the stupidest statement I have ever heard. Try telling that to the soldiers who died for your right to say any such.
uh… I can’t… because… well, because they’re dead.
I honor them with my words..
why do you hate my freedoms?
Exhibit A ^
Yea, never been a false flag attack to start a war before…
Second Sino-Japanese War
World War II
Every talking head on Fox is jumping up and down, *demanding* war in the Middle East. This new batch of cocksuckers haven’t had enough of failure from the air.
When your head is in the sand , look what is sticking up . A few strategically placed bombs around Iraq can lessen the threat of ISIS. It seems foolish not to slow them down at least.
Do you know who funded, armed, and trained ISIS? I bet you have some homework to do…
No, it couldn’t be that there are actually people dedicated to killing American citizens, it has to be Rick Perry “the Texas governor who is using the terror threat to burnish his 2016 presidential credentials.” If you need proof ISIS is already here just look for the banners in photos of the Furguson “protests.”
Don’t be fooled reader, the communist left will stop at nothing to destroy the American way of life.. They and the Islamists have moved swiftly using a complicit media and a mentally stunted public to navigate their way to the top. Now the chaos begins, the evidence is everywhere.
The problem of radical Islam was isolated and declining when the communists took power and now it festers all around the world, exploding into unspeakable violence in many places.
Supporters of the radical left have already moved ahead to the next administration asking what they are going to do about it, presuming it’s someone with an R next to their name. If the admin is full of “D’s” AKA Communists, it will be a “non-issue” or “internal affairs of other nations” or some other double talk double standard and will continue to go unnoticed.
Every week there is a new unresolved scandal… lets toss “False Flag Attack” on top of Fast and Furious / Benghazi / IRS targeting WH enemies & the lost emls / NSA spying on citizens / Holders 2 counts of perjury / Sebelius / Solyndra / AP phone records / Census Bureau mnaipulations / Bergdahl Taliban exchange / VA failures and abuses / No ISIS strategy / More FBI agents to Ferguson than assigned to the IRS scandal / Immigration – Illegals failures / Gaza / EBT abuses / …. and the list goes on. A False Flag Attack, even if real,… would be less noticed by the media than a Monday night football game. The voting base the left appeals to cant point to Benghazi on a map.
Seems blatantly contrived
