The 15 Most Shocking “False Flag” Attacks In History
A false flag attack is an action carried out in a way that aims to deceive the victim (and everyone else for that matter) regarding the actual perpetrator of the attack. The goal will be to instigate a sequence of events that play into the preferred agenda of the entity that carried out the orchestration, either by using it as justification to start a war or merely to discredit another’s group’s reputation.
In this day and age, carrying out this sort of action is a lot more challenging than it used to be. We do live in the era of fake news but, generally speaking, people have a much better access to information than they used to so governments and organizations need to try a lot harder to deliver false flag attacks in a believable manner.
This means this level of deception is only available to highly capable organizations, making this a fertile area for conspiracy theorists. After all, if only the insanely powerful can pull off this type of endeavour then surely that’s precisely what they’ll be doing. Here we’ll go through the most shocking false flag attacks that have actually taken place.
15. Japan Planted A Bomb In Order to Invade Manchuria
The Manchurian Incident was a classic false flag attack designed by Japanese military personnel to provide a pretext for the invasion in 1931 of Manchuria, in Northeastern China. On the 18th of September, a Japanese officer detonated a small explosive next to a railway line owned by a Japanese company.
The explosion was so ineffective it failed to destroy the track and a train passed over it moments later. It gave the Imperial Japanese Army an excuse to advance to war, in a ruse that was exposed shortly after, leading Japan to withdraw from the League of Nations, an organization which would fail but lay the groundwork for the future UN to take its place.
14. A false flag attack was used as the catalyst for World War II
The Gleiwitz Broadcasting Station false flag attack was a staged event by Nazi forces pretending to act as rebellious anti-German, Polish activists on the eve of WWII at the start of September 1939. This attack against the German radio station would be used as a pretext for Nazi Germany to invade Poland.
This operation was one of the several attacks conducted by the SS in a series of unconventional events designed to provide an excuse for the outbreak of the war in the eye of German public opinion. By creating the notion that Germany was falling victim to an aggressive Polish campaign, the Nazis were able to create a justification to start the bloody war they were so anxious to get going in September 1939.
13. The Soviets Are Known For Their False flag tradition
False flag attacks were definitely in during World War II. The Shelling of Mainila (not Manilla which is in the Philippines) was a staged shelling of a Russian village close to the Soviet-Finnish border. This came to light decades later in a shocking admission by the Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev.
This episode took place at the end of November 1939, when the Soviet Red Army shelled its own Russian village of Mainila while reporting to the world the attack had been the work of the Finnish army across the border and there had been Russian casualties. With this, the Soviet Union finally had the cause for launching the Winter War against Finland, which it did four days later.
12. American Officials Wanted to Kill their own people In Order To Invade Cuba
At the height of the Cold War in 1962, a joint effort by U.S. Department of Defense and the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the United States government gave birth to Operation Northwoods, a poignant reminder that evil lurked in both sides of the global conflict between East and West.
Thankfully, this operation never went ahead as it was rejected by the Kennedy administration. It would have involved the CIA and other government operatives committing acts of terrorism against American civilians and military targets, placing the blame for these on the Cuban government, in order to justify a military intervention in Cuba.
11. Israel’s disastrous attempt at a false flag attack
The Lavon Affair in 1954 became one of the worst intelligence mishaps in Israel’s history. It was named after Pinhas Lavon, the Israeli defence minister at the time. This false flag operation was designed to ruin Egypt’s recent friendships with the US and UK by bombing sites frequented by foreigners in Cairo and Alexandria.
Israel hoped the attacks, which resulted in no casualties, would be blamed on local activists. However, Moshe Marzouk and Samuel Azar were caught and confessed, subsequently hanging for their crimes while the rest served jail time before going to Israel. There is strong evidence to suggest this was the result of a double agent betraying Israel by handing over the perpetrators to the Egyptian authorities.
10. Shock horror: United States help topple another government
Long before Trump went after Iran, the United States had been interfering with the country’s destiny, thwarting its democratic endeavours in the vain hope to keep the region under American control. American and British officials plotted the military coup that restored the Iranian Shah to power in 1953 by toppling the democratically elected Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddegh.
Recently released CIA documents have given us yet another classic manifestation of the false flag methodology. According to these documents, Iranians linked with the CIA staged the bombing of a religious leader’s home with the objective of turning the country’s Islamic religious community against Mossadegh’s democratic government.
9. Cypriot Mosque bombed by Turkish government
Sabri Yirmibeşoğlu, a former Turkish general, admitted that Turkish troops burned down a mosque in Cyprus in the 1970s so they would have a chance to blame it on Greece, using it as further justification to incite a Turkish intervention in the Mediterranean island.
During an interview with foreign correspondents, he asserted “Certain acts of sabotage are staged and blamed on the enemy to increase public resistance. We did this in Cyprus – we even burnt down a mosque.” When faced with the incredulity of the interviewer, the general added: “I am giving an example”. How’s that for a slip-up?
8. A wave of attacks by US-backed separatists in Syria
The British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan admitted to his defence secretary the existence of a 1957 plan between him and US President Dwight Eisenhower to have Islamic extremists carry out false flag attacks in Syria to topple the Syrian government, as a means to bring a regime change in the Middle Eastern nation.
This CIA-MI6 plan sought “to stage fake border incidents as an excuse for an invasion by Syria’s pro-western neighbours, and then to “eliminate” the most influential triumvirate in Damascus.” The goal was to arm paramilitary groups which aim to replace the government, thereby bringing disarray into the region in a true display of the adage “Divide and Conquer”. The plan seems to be fully in motion 60 years later.
7. The Anthrax Attacks in the US After 9/11
You will definitely remember the 2001 anthrax attacks in the United States which took place over the weeks following the September 11 attacks. It consisted of simple letters containing anthrax spores which were sent to news outlets and two US senators, Tom Daschle and Patrick Leahy, killing five people and infecting 17 in the process.
At the time the attacks were portrayed as the work of Al Qaeda with recent reports showing both George W. Bush and his VP Dick Cheney were desperate to pin the attack on the Taliban. However, it was soon discovered by FBI the attacks had been carried out with a military strain of the virus – proving it had been in fact a false flag attack, attributed to “lone nut” anthrax researcher Bruce Ivins.
6. Russian bombings and high-profile assassinations
The 9/99 Russian apartment bombings were made up of a sequence of explosions designed to target four apartment buildings in the cities of Buynaksk, Moscow and Volgodons, killing 293 people and injuring over 650 others. These explosions occurred over the course of September 1999 with several other bombs defused in Moscow at the time.
The operation is now largely perceived as a false flag attack pinned on Chechnyan separatists to justify an invasion of Chechnya, which worked as public support grew for the cause. The supposed culprit denied involvement in the killing of civilians, shortly before being assassinated by the Russian secret services.
5. Operation Gladio/B bears a striking resemblance to life in Europe Now
Operation Gladio was a NATO-led effort of the CIA and MI6-built network of fascist cells which would carry out bombings and assassinations if the Soviet Union was ever successful in invading Europe. These days Operation Gladio/B is considered a spin-off of the original, except with Muslim terrorists taking over the mantle from the fascists.
The aim of this network is to carry out false flag terrorist attacks all over the world, creating a state of permanent tension all over the world and justification for increased American influence under the guise of “democracy”. This is then used as justification to erode civil liberties at home and increase the government’s power abroad in the name of a foreign enemy.
There is no official narrative on this issue but the similarities to what’s happening in Europe these days paint a very scary picture.
4. Another explosion with a less-than-believable explanation behind it
The Oklahoma City bombings were an incredibly suspicious series of events in April 1995. While initially attributed to Muslim extremists, the blame for the bombing was then placed on a pair of American “lone nuts”. These attacks are widely considered by researchers as a false flag attack carried out by the American deep state for a range of purposes, including discrediting the militia movement and destroying ongoing government investigations on suspicious crimes.
There’s plenty of chilling evidence. Several key witnesses to this attack whose version of events contradicted the “official narrative” passed away shortly before testifying, or died in the custody of the FBI in a suspicious sequence of suicides for the same case. The unofficial main suspect Andreas Straßmeir was helped in fleeing the US and continues to be protected from investigation.
3. West Germany failed in Staging a False Flag attack in the 70s
The Cold War between communism and capitalism also provided fertile ground for duplicitous acts of aggression, which obviously include the false flag attacks we’ve grown to love for their twisted nature. Celle Hole is a hole in Celle, which this author speculates is perhaps the reason behind the name this operation is known for. To expand, this hole was a breach created by a small explosion in the outer wall of a West German prison in July 1978.
This explosion was actually the result of West Germany’s secret service agents who were trying to pin the attack on a left-wing terrorist group known as the Red Army Faction. Eight years later it would be revealed as a secret plot gone wrong much to the embarrassment of the German government.
2. The Seminal JFK Assassination
The assassination of United States President John F. Kennedy on November 22 1963, is one of the most mysterious events of the past century. Initially attributed to Lee Harvey Oswald who supposedly acted by himself, this event is widely perceived by the general public as involving a great deal more than what the official narrative suggests.
As a President was shot, this false flag attack is arguably the most symbolic and caused us to consider for the first time perhaps the President isn’t the most powerful person in the world. Yes, we don’t really know the whole story. The existence of a group which orchestrates world events according to their own agenda who answer to no one has become eerily plausible after this seminal event.
1. Was 9/11 a false flag attack?
This controversy has been saved for last. The official narrative doesn’t add up. From technical details such as the temperature at which steel melts, to suspicious deals supposed to take place on that day related to Osama Bin Laden hijacking the planes, and billionaire Larry Silverstein’s multi-billion dollar insurance payout on the back of the WTC collapse, the whole thing just doesn’t make sense.
Made up of a complex and spectacular set of events which took place in New York and Washington, no evidence of guilt was presented although the government was quick to blame Al-Qaeda and invade Iraq and Afghanistan because some Saudi terrorists led these attacks – wait, what?
No one can really know what happened but one thing remains clear: we are not being told the full story behind 9/11.
