When People Know The Truth False Flags Won’t Fly

Those who have studied history know that nothing invigorates and empowers an authoritarian regime more than a spectacular act of violence, some sudden and senseless loss of life that allows the autocrat to stand on the smoking rubble and identify himself as the hero.
It is at moments like this that the public -— still in shock from the horror of the tragedy that has just unfolded before them -— can be led into the most ruthless despotism: despotism that now bears the mantle of "security."

What a false flag is and is not 15.May.2012 01:09


False Flags are:


False flag (aka Black Flag) operations are covert operations designed to deceive in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by other entities. The name is derived from the military concept of flying false colors; that is: flying the flag of a country other than one's own. False flag operations are not limited to war and counter-insurgency operations and can be used during peace-time.

False Flags are NOT a synonym for any political fraud, con or misunderstanding.
