Turkish False Flag on Syria
Willful Turkish provocation.
by Stephen Lendman
The news is out but bears repeating. New reports confirm it. It shouldn't surprise. It's one of the oldest stunts around. Attacks launched are blamed on victims. Wars follow. More on Turkey's false flag below.
Sinking the Lusitania in May 1915 preceded America's April 1917 WW I entry. The 1933 Reichstag fire helped Hitler assume dictatorial powers.
On August 31, 1939, Nazis impersonating Poles attacked a Gleiwitz radio station. It was on the border between the two countries. WW II followed.
Roosevelt manipulated the Japanese to attack Pearl Harbor. It gave him the war he wanted. Japan's fleet was tracked across the Pacific. Pearl Harbor's Admiral HE Kimmel wasn't warned. Casualties were needed to turn pacifist Americans into raving Japan haters and get congressional support.
Numerous other false flags followed. The August 1964 Gulf of Tonkin incident is well-known. Over a decade of war followed. For suffering Vietnamese it never ended.
