False Flag Advisory -- Bush and Israel

by Captain Eric H. May Saturday, Apr. 12, 2008 at 5:12 PM

Two courageous officers on mission of conscience, Marine Major William B. Fox and Army Captain Eric H. May, post an extended advisory on the prospects of Bush League treason. They are thoughtful and thorough in documenting and illustrating "false flag attacks."

False Flag Advisory -- Bush and Israel

By Major William B. Fox

and Captain Eric H. May

From Alert to Advisory

Last week we published "False Flag Alert -- April 7-11" to the American people on the Internet. Since Israel was running its largest-ever domestic military exercises during the week, everything necessary for a false flag attack was ready. A "false flag" refers to an attack carried out by one government to be blamed on another, usually in order to create an excuse to start a war.

We pointed out the numerous and substantial indicators from both the United States and Israel that a war with Iran might be in the works. Since current US public opinion will not support a unilateral war against Iran, we focused on the distinct possibility that Israel or the Bush administration might manufacture public support for a war by carrying out a false flag attack against the US military target abroad or a US civilian target at home.

Israel has finished its national war games, meaning that it is no longer on an active war footing. While the immediate and extreme danger inherent in the Israeli war games is over, there is still an ongoing and considerable danger of war. Israel's preparations demonstrate that it is preparing for war. In the last few days, Israeli officials have made public threats to destroy Iran utterly. Concurrently, US General David Petraeus and Ambassador Ryan Crocker have named Iran as an overt, active and increasing threat to the US.

Accordingly, we are downgrading our one-week "alert" to an "advisory" enduring for the remaining nine months of the Bush presidency. We consider this not merely a prudent precaution but an utterly necessary step.

Sources both inside and outside of the White House are speculating that George W. Bush has promised Israel a war with Iran before he leaves office. They include Pat Buchanan, in his article today, Petraeus Points to War With Iran. He starts with "The neocons may yet get their war with Iran," and he ends with "No, it is not Iran that wants a war with the United States. It is the United States that has reasons to want a short, sharp war with Iran."

False Flag Facts

Both the US and Israel have planned or carried out well-documented false flag attacks.

In 1962, the US Joint Chiefs of Staff proposed Operation Northwoods to President John F. Kennedy. In it, they recommended a false flag attack to manufacture a pretext for an invasion of Castro's Cuba:

"We could blow up a US ship in Guantanamo Bay and blame Cuba. Casualty lists in US newspapers would cause a helpful wave of national indignation." -- ABC News: US Military Wanted to Provoke War with Cuba

Israel attempted to sink a Navy ship, the USS Liberty, during its 1967 Middle East war. Their false flag attack, carried out in collaboration with the Johnson administration, was intended to provoke the American people into supporting a US entry into the war against the Arabs, on whom the attack was to be blamed. For half a day the Israeli Air Force and Navy strafed and torpedoed the Liberty. When the Liberty radioed for help, the Johnson administration ordered the rest of the Navy not to render assistance. He even recalled aircraft that had been scrambled from a carrier to assist the Liberty.

Eventually word of the ongoing Israeli attack leaked out worldwide, bringing it to a halt. Afterwards, the Johnson administration dispersed the ship's crew and threatened them with imprisonment -- or worse -- if they embarrassed Israel by telling the truth about what happened. Admiral John McCain -- father of the Republican presidential candidate -- led a sham Navy investigation that labeled the entire incident a case mistaken identity by Israel.

Cheerleader in Chief

Bush's "Iraq war" speech yesterday should remove any doubts about his belligerence toward Iran. It speaks for itself as an echo of pre-Iraq war saber rattling.

"The regime in Tehran has a choice to make: It can live in peace with its neighbor, enjoy strong economic and cultural and religious ties, or it can continue to arm and train and fund illegal militant groups which are terrorizing the Iraqi people and turning them against Iran.

"If Iran makes the right choice, America will encourage a peaceful relationship between Iran and Iraq. If Iran makes the wrong choice, America will act to protect our interests and our troops and our Iraqi partners...

"Iraq is the convergence point for two of the greatest threats to America in this new century: Al Qaeda and Iran. If we fail there, Al Qaeda would claim a propaganda victory of colossal proportions and they could gain safe havens in Iraq from which to attack the United States, our friends and our allies.

"Iran would work to fill the vacuum in Iraq and our failure would embolden its radical leaders to fuel their ambitions to dominate the region."

Applauding All Americans

We believe that our mission of conscience to alert the American people has been successful so far. Indeed, Internet editors, researchers and activists have posted a thousand publications of our alert, and we hope that they will create as many more of this, our extended advisory.

Needless to say, in this most interactive medium there have been thousands upon thousands of comments agreeing with or arguing against our reasoning. We salute all those -- on all sides -- who have weighed in on the issues. Citizens engaging in this salutary public debate nurture our republic and honor the ideals of our Founders.
