Lately, there has been an attempt to play up this idea that Syria will use chemical weapons in their fight against “activists” that happen to actually be terrorists backed by the NATO countries, as they attempt to bring down country after country, all for no discernible purpose, other than to to attempt to steal what is left of the gas and oil on the planet. But that isn’t what this post is about.
There is a long history, which I won’t go into here, of events manipulated, or even manufactured by the US Empire, done for various foreign policy reasons with various objectives . Most often, the idea is to do something horrible, and then blame the current enemy of doing the very thing they did, as a way of justifying whatever belligerent policy the empire wishes to justify at the time.
For instance, the unbelievers can easily find out about Operation Northwoods which is quite astounding stuff they had planned, and it was to Kennedy’s credit in this case, that he stopped any further planning along these lines. Many people believe the 9/11 attacks were a “false flag” attack of unimaginable magnitude.
So, it makes me very nervous when the media tells me Syria is going to use chemical weapons, and the “activists” (as NPR always seems to call them) are now allegedly seen with gas masks. If any such tragedy occurs in Syria, I would be very suspicious of claims the Syrian government had anything to do with it. In fact, it might be logical to look elsewhere for the cause of such a tragedy.
