US Intel Director Prepares Public for False Flag Event

Desperate for war, US prepares to blame Iran for false flag attack.

"...it would be far more preferable if the United States could cite an Iranian provocation as justification for the airstrikes before launching them. Clearly, the more outrageous, the more deadly, and the more unprovoked the Iranian action, the better off the United States would be. Of course, it would be very difficult for the United States to goad Iran into such a provocation without the rest of the world recognizing this game, which would then undermine it. (One method that would have some possibility of success would be to ratchet up covert regime change efforts in the hope that Tehran would retaliate overtly, or even semi-overtly, which could then be portrayed as an unprovoked act of Iranian aggression.) " -- US foreign policy makers in the Fortune 500 funded Brookings Institution's "Which Path to Persia?" report, pages 84-85.

Considering that the Gulf of Tonkin incident was a deliberate fabrication to escalate the Vietnam War, one many members in Congress are shown to have acknowledged and debated even at the time, or the more recent Iraqi WMD hoax, there is certainly a historical precedence to create such provocations when targeted nations refuse to provide them.

With this in mind, and noting an overt, ongoing series of bold acts of war carried out by the US and Israel inside of Iran, along with sanctions and planned blockades, also acts of war, the corporate-financier oligarchs have been confounded by what seems to be infinite Iranian patience to endure such provocations.

US foreign policy makers have noted for years now that Iran in actuality poses no threat to US or Israeli national security and their acquiring of nuclear weapons serves more of a deterrence against future military incursions against the Islamic Republic by the West, than a means to launch unprovoked attacks against nations that each possess nuclear deterrents of apocalyptic scale.

While Iran endures an increasing torrent of unprovoked attacks, they steadily advance their defensive capabilities to ward off what seems like an inevitable invasion by the West, who has already invaded and occupied for years nations to its east and west on false pretenses, and have for the past year fueled foreign-funded revolutions across the Middle East and North Africa. Time is on the Iranians' side, as Western attempts to destabilize and destroy Syria drag on, and an increasing number of people around the world begin to understand the true source of instability behind the so-called "Arab Spring."

While behind closed doors US policy makers admit Iran is driven by self-preservation and protecting the influence it is steadily gaining throughout the Middle Eastern region it borders, the message they desperately seek to relate to the public is one of an irrational apocalyptic theocracy eager to usher in Armageddon.

However, reports out of the RAND corporation note that Iran has had chemical weapons in its inventory for decades, and other reports from RAND describe the strict control elite military units exercise over these weapons, making it unlikely they would end up in the hands of "terrorists." The fact that Iran's extensive chemical weapon stockpile has yet to be disseminated into the hands of non-state actors, along with the fact that these same elite units would in turn handle any Iranian nuclear weapons, lends further evidence to the conclusion that Iran is indeed driven by self-preservation.

Brookings notes on pages 24 and 25 of their "Which Path to Persia?" report, that the real threat is not the deployment of these weapons, but rather the deterrence they present, allowing Iran to counter US influence in the region without the fear of an American invasion.

Latest "Warning" of "Impending Iranian Terrorist Attack"

Despite this documented evidence, the Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr. made a startling statement recently, citing an already discredited alleged "Iranian plot" involving an assassination attempt of a Saudi ambassador on US soil, that Iran is "now more willing to conduct an attack in the United States in response to real or perceived U.S. actions that threaten the regime." What Clapper describes is not in fact an impending Iranian attack, but a false flag event to be blamed on Iran to fit the criteria for a suitable justification for war, clearly defined by the Brookings Institution's report.

What is more troubling is that the Washington Post, which reported Clapper's comments, acknowledges that "a covert campaign is already underway to thwart Iran’s alleged ambition to develop a nuclear weapon." And while the US has officially denied carrying out any act of violence inside of Iran, it is a matter of public record that the US State Department in conjunction with the UN is harboring a US State Dapartment listed "foreign terrorist organization," the Mujahedeen e-Khalq (MEK) in Iraq, who has for decades carried out such violent attacks within Iran. In fact, the same Brookings Institution report cited above, also proposed the use of MEK as a suitable US proxy in provoking Iran. It would turn out that the alleged "Iranian-Saudi assassination plot" cited by Clapper, was more plausibly the work of MEK, than the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.

And as Al Qaeda is re-purposed for overthrowing America's enemies in Libya and Syria, with LIFG terrorist leader Abdul Belhaj (aka Abdul Hasadi) literally leading NATO-armed legionaries into battle in now two nations, the "terrorists threat" has been shifted onto Iran -- the sort of conveniently timed plot twist to be expected for a "War on Terror" that is a verifiable fraud.

The Bottom Line

Iran has nothing to gain and everything to lose by attacking the United States. US policy makers have expressed a documented desire to provoke the Iranians into a war the Islamic Republic is clearly trying to avoid. The United States government is on record funding, arming, and training terrorist organizations (LIFG & MEK) on its own "foreign terrorist organization" list, a violation of their own anti-terrorism laws. They have failed categorically to provide convincing evidence regarding the alleged "Iranian-Saudi assassination plot."  Moreover, the evidence suggests it is instead, the latest in a long string of contrived federal entrapment cases. If an attack occurs on US soil or against US allies in the near future under these circumstances, it is most likely Clapper, General Petraeus at the CIA, and Israel's Mossad that will be to blame.

As was the case in Vietnam, and more recently the fraudulent casus belli against Iraq, the West is being led into another infinitely destructive war, jeopardizing the lives of millions, and further bankrupting already destitute nations reeling from 10 years of unending war. It is essential to raise awareness of US policy makers and their desire to provoke war with an unwilling adversary, and the documented history the United States government has in manufacturing provocations when none can be goaded.

It is also important to remember that no matter how detestable our political leaders may be, there is a corporate-financier oligarchy above them pulling the strings. It is important to vote warmongers out of office, but just as important to identify the strength of the corporate-financier oligarchs that drive them . . .  and undermine them at all costs.

You all have a MUCH greater chance of spending time inside one of the many FEMA camps set up in Amerika than Iran conducting ANY so called "Attacks" on US soil and I would bet that if an "Attack" does happen, it will be the work of Mossad, CIA and FBI NOT IRAN!

The former PNAC once stated that because of th humiliation of the war in Vietnam the Us would never fight a war it couldn't win. that is why so many countries with a weak military have been the targets.The US has bases in 150 of the 192 countries of the world.Even though the US has Iran surrounded with US bases and much of China they will find Iran is not Iraq.It unfortunate for either country that America has come to love wars when the only ones who profit is corporate America and the industrial military complex who protects these corporations. www.addictedtowar.com

I don't want to think about the possible effects of its becoming known, that in 2015 or so, Israel had goaded the US into a disastrous war against Iran, leading to oil at $600/bl (if one could get it), 40% monthly inflation, 36% unemployment, a resounding military defeat, the possibility of war with Russia and China... just to mention a few things.

Can you imagine... there's a soldier who gets the Medal of Honor for his undeniable heroism in extracting 87 men in his company through the burning ruins of Bushehr onto a troopship. He reaches certain conclusions about *why* the US was economically ruined...

Let's see now, what's his name, as he roams around after his discharge, very proud of his MoH... A fellow named Alfred Hilton, something like that.

I can just see it. What's even more upsetting is, that the date is well after July 16, 1945: history's most important event: Trinity.

The CFRtv and the moronic politicos of the demoratic party have assembled the most pathologically immoral administration possible to counter the Bush43s. Both need to be jailed, PERMANENTLY.

In case an Iranian happens to read these articles and comments, I for one am not a backer of the Establishment. I am against any war that has not started on usa soil per the constitution, and for the record the 9-11 incident does not look like the terrorist from another country was involved, it looks more and more like an inside job for money, land, resources, and a never ending war for the war machine.
I am hoping for no war with Iran and hope some day we can get the establishment out of power, get rid of whoever and whatever is pulling these strings and tearing down a peaceful way of living for all citizens of this world.
I also would like to say I do not believe in any gods or goddesses, we are all in this together, we need to stop religious persecutions and religious wars. Imagine!

Many Americans are against the war. But still the protests are not enough to impact on a big scale change. All you can do then is boycott the banking system, take any money out and stop fueling senseless war on innocent countries. Use cash or barter. Bombs are the problem, not the solution. He who do not act is accomplice in mass murder. All of you.

Look to the USS Enterprise for a false flag, It is our oldest in the fleet and the final deployment is scheduled for persian gulf. It was the first Nucleat powered aircraft carrier and costly to dispose of. If it was at the bottom of the persian gulf 2 birds with one shell could be accomplished feb 1st newsjournalonline reports USS Enterprise departing for final mission to the persian gulf including Defense Secretary Leon Panetta addressed the Enterprise's crew Jan. 21 and told them the carrier helps to send a strong message to Iran.

Tehran has warned the United States not to send another carrier to the Persian Gulf region and threatened to close the Strait of Hormuz, a critical route for oil supplies.

Panetta told sailors that Iran blocking the strait or developing an atomic weapon is a "red line" that shouldn't be crossed.

"And that's what this carrier is all about," he said. "That's the reason we maintain a presence in the Middle East ... We want them to know we are fully prepared to deal with any contingency, and it's better for them to try to deal with us through diplomacy."
