False flags are an integral part of covert US military-intelligence ops: ” a deliberate gross distortion(s) of the truth used especially as a propaganda tactic.”
Official stories are false. They’re contrary to reality. They turn truth on its head. They point fingers the wrong way. They’re pretexts for militarism, wars, mass killing and destruction, occupations, domestic repression, and other extremist national security state measures.
Wednesday’s Ghouta incident raises disturbing questions. It was a clear anti-Syrian provocation. No evidence suggests Assad’s involvement. Clear analysis shows he’d have everything to lose and nothing to gain.
Syrian insurgents used chemical weapons numerous times before. Clear evidence proves it. Media scoundrels suppressed it. They substituted lies for truth. They do it every time. It’s standard practice.
