It seems to me one of the most important questions we can ask about the world we live in is whether governments use so called 'false flag' terrorism against their populations. That is, do government forces 'dress up' as the enemy and terrorise their own populations, to justify the foreign wars and domestic oppression they wish to enact?
One prominent example of where this question is relevant is the Reichstag fire, the destruction of the German parliament building which took place eighty years ago today. It's beyond all doubt that the Nazi party jumped upon this event as the means of achieving dictatorial powers, claiming the fire was a sign that a large communist conspiracy was at work and civil liberties needed to be suspended to fight this foe. It was exactly what they needed at exactly the time they needed it, and right from the time it happened, there has always been the suggestion that this is all just a little too convenient and that it was in fact the Nazi's themselves who started the fire.
Although testimony from Nazi's at the Nuremberg trials corroborated this claim, it may never be known beyond all doubt who was really responsible for the fire. Whilst it seems unlike that the creation of Nazi Germany wouldn't have occurred but for the actions of a lone arsonist, I suppose it can't be ruled out that the Nazi's merely acted as opportunists in this case. It does however stretch my personal sense of credulity. We can know for certain that six years later, Heinrich Himmler would have German SS agents dress up as Polish soldiers and carry out acts of terrorism on the German side of the border. In what was called 'Operation Himmler', he even had the dead bodies of concentration camp victims dressed up as Polish soldiers and dumped again on German territory, all to justify the invasion of Poland. Prior to the attacks Adolf Hitler said to his Generals:
"I will provide a propagandistic casus belli. Its credibility doesn't matter. The victor will not be asked whether he told the truth."
And afterwards Mr. Hitler declared in a speech to the German people:
"I can no longer find any willingness on the part of the Polish Government to conduct serious negotiations with us. These proposals for mediation have failed because in the meanwhile there, first of all, came as an answer the sudden Polish general mobilization, followed by more Polish atrocities. These were again repeated last night. Recently in one night there were as many as twenty-one frontier incidents: last night there were fourteen, of which three were quite serious. I have, therefore, resolved to speak to Poland in the same language that Poland for months past has used toward us...
This night for the first time Polish regular soldiers fired on our own territory. Since 5:45 a. m. we have been returning the fire... I will continue this struggle, no matter against whom, until the safety of the Reich and its rights are secured"
All a complete lie of course.
As the cartoon at the top shows the comparison between the Reichstag fire and September 11th has often been made. Even if you reject that either one or both of these events was a false flag, both were acts of terrorism that the ruling government used to enact a preconceived agenda of domestic oppression and foreign wars. The extent may have differed (although in saying that I don't wish to belittle the suffering of the victims of US terrorism) but the principle did not.
In the short film below, Alex Jones looks at the Reichstag fire (as well as Operation Himmler) from the perspective of it being a false flag event.
The full film from which this extract is taken is called 'TerrorStorm - A History of Government Sponsored Terrorism'. The first twenty minutes give a very good overview of prominent false flag terrorist events carried out since World War Two. It can be viewed at the following link:
