How To False Flag A War With Iran

On the Bullshit Filter this week we covered the recent Gulf Of Oman oil tanker attacks and the US claims that Iran did it.

As evidence, the US proferred up some grainy spycam video of what they claim to be an Iranian ship pulling an unexploded limpet mine off one of tankers.

We explained on the podcast all of the problems with this evidence, but get this: In 2008, investigative journalist Seymour Hersh claimed that during a previous incident in the same Straits of Hormuz, there was a meeting in Dick Cheney’s office about how to start a war with Iran. According to ThinkProgress: “during the meeting in Cheney’s office, an idea was considered to dress up Navy Seals as Iranians, put them on fake Iranian speedboats, and shoot at them.”

HERSH: There was a dozen ideas proffered about how to trigger a war. The one that interested me the most was why don’t we build — we in our shipyard — build four or five boats that look like Iranian PT boats. Put Navy seals on them with a lot of arms. And next time one of our boats goes to the Straits of Hormuz, start a shoot-up.

  1. That’s undeniably possible. After the pump-fake retaliation last night that was called off, who do you think is actually planting the false flag-flag though? (Assuming for the topic, it is) President Trump himself? The military, or other entities with the power to try and start a chain-reaction like this?
    I know the core issues go back much much further than who’s in office right now. I’m glad the counter-attack got stopped. I hope it was the President not getting sucked in and realizing that it’s a ridiculous and impossible situation. But it could all have been part of the show too. Its a very dangerous step up to assuming that shooting down each other’s Unmanned Drones, or Unmanned Anything requires retaliation that will certainly cost lives and start a runaway process that ends who the hell knows where. Having been in that part of the world, I can imagine disasters most people wouldn’t bother to think of because the come from something subtle. That’s not to mention the obvious disasters. Sorry for the long comment. I have a lot to say about this. And I’m not making up opinions or embellishments. I can back up my arguments and prove it’s not just Bullshit.
