How Do You Know When The State Is Lying?
An old joke, but in regard to this deceiver, not a laughing matter at all.
RECENTLY I WROTE THIS OBSERVATION concerning the patently-obvious false-flag* ascription to Bashar al Assad's government of the tragic massacre by chemical weapons of some 87 people in a small town in northern Syria on April 4, 2017:
SINCE I POSTED THE WORDS ABOVE, the Trump administration has attacked Syria with cruise missiles, bombarding the airfield from which planes involved in last week's incident were launched. This, without a scintilla of evidence that Assad had anything to do with the chemical event (and no effort to find any), and in the face of every rational certainty that he did not.
This "retaliation" without investigation simply confirms the false flag character of the event. No one would do such a thing except in service to an agenda in which the facts are irrelevant because the place at which things arrive was pre-determined.
GETTING AMERICA EMBROILED IN SYRIA with American planes and American pilots (and soon infantry) in harm's way and set up to produce a few bloody shirts so as to make the commitment irrevocable, appears to be the plan. This must now be seen as necessary to accomplish the overthrow of Assad that has been the wish-list item all along.
The fact has always been that Assad is very popular in Syria, having followed in his father's footsteps with a relatively benign secular government, which welcomed and protected all religious sects, including Christians as well as Muslims. An externally-driven assault has been the only way of removing him.
Since Assad and the Russians have been winning against the CIA-proxy "rebels" lately, and in a big way, American boots on the ground are now needed. This, in turn, needed a pretext, like an inexplicable but rushed-to-judgment "chemical attack". Sort of a Syria-oriented "new Pearl Harbor", as it were..
I TITLED THIS ARTICLE with a reference to an old joke about knowing when someone is lying. It happens that just four days ago was the anniversary of the embroilment of America in World War I, in large part by way of another false flag event. Please familiarize yourself with that earlier deception, and then think long and hard about how you're being played today.
And while you're having that think, keep this other oldie but goodie in mind: Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
*False flag, def: A deliberate false ascription of responsibility for some heinous event-- whether involving false "evidence" or not-- which is meant to induce popular support for some kind of "retaliatory", "defensive" or "punitive" action usually (but not necessarily) of a military nature.
