A false flag attack is one that your own government carries out against you, but blames on someone else. It creates a sense of emergency, the kind of thing summarized by the government emergency code "911." When you have a 911-type emergency, you want take-charge, kick-ass action, not a lot of pussy-footing philosophizing. You will accept a homeland state or a global war, if you believe that's what it will take to make you safe again.
False flags are possible only if you trust your government. Misguided trust is the key enabling factor. The matter can be stated succinctly:
If you think your government CAN'T attack you, then it CAN.
If you think your government CAN attack you, then it CAN'T.
A month ago we published the Mayday Alert to encourage widespread skepticism about May 1-8 terror drills in Seattle and Washington, DC. As we noted in our "Mayday Alert Update"
http://www.lonestaricon.com/absolutenm/anmviewer.asp?a=2788&z=163 countless Americans joined us in our skepticism. It's just common sense to be wary when someone brings a gun into your house—or thousands of armed Marines into your city.
"We don't want anyone thinking that there's an invasion happening when we declared martial law or something like that."—Debbie Fletcher, Indianapolis Emergency Management Agency—The Indianapolis Star, May 29, "Marines bringing combat training to Indy"
Three months ago, Mayor Carty Finkbeiner of Toledo, Ohio, demonstrated that you don't have to roll out a welcome mat for shock forces. Finkbeiner turned away a company of 200 Marines intending to conduct terror drills in his city this winter:
Toledo Blade, Feb. 9, "Mayor to Marines: Leave Downtown"
The Indianapolis mayor, though, is not the kind of man to turn away the Marine Corps. While he has only been mayor for eight months, Gregory A. Ballard was a Marine officer for 23 years, retiring in 2001 at the rank of lieutenant colonel. His election in November rates as one of Indiana's most shocking upsets ever. That makes him a bright star on the otherwise bleak horizon of the Republican Party, and a crucial go-to guy for the Bush League at crunch time.
"Residents can expect to see helicopters flying overhead, military vehicles on the roads and Marines patrolling on foot." —Colonel Mark J. Desens, Commander, 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit—The Indianapolis Star, May 29, "Marines bringing combat training to Indy"
The 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit, based at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, has plenty of combat veterans from Iraq, where some of its elements have been deployed. No one but a retired Marine like Lt. Col. Ballard would welcome 2,200 hard-core combat veterans to practice assaulting, subduing and controlling his city.
The first elements of the 26th MEU will arrive by helicopter, and will establish their headquarters at Raytheon, the military-industrial mega-corporation. Thereafter, they will carry out urban warfare, bringing the Battle of Baghdad and the Fight of Falluja to Indianapolis, Indiana. The last time the federal government used similar force was during Reconstruction, when the Army implemented martial law in the former Confederacy.
"At half past nine this morning we were actually running an exercise ... in London based on simultaneous bombs going off precisely at the railway stations where it happened this morning, so I still have the hairs on the back of my neck standing up right now."—Peter Power, BBC, 7/7/05 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKvkhe3rqtc
The Power quote above is probably the clearest single proof of the connection between terror drills and actual terrorism. It demonstrates that the UK's 7/7 London attacks were a false flag affair. After all, the easiest way to bring the manpower and matériel necessary to carry out an attack is to say that you are there to practice against the attack, then take the practice "live."
We have no crystal ball that allows us to predict that there WILL be a false flag attack during the June 4-19 terror drills in Indianapolis, as there was during the London terror drills three years ago. On the other hand, we have plenty of reason to alert the American people that there MIGHT be a false flag attack.
The citizens of Indianapolis should keep an eye out, and a cell phone in hand, for the next couple of weeks. The ability to distribute reports of suspicious government activity via the Internet has been history's great surprise for criminals who think that they can make history. The Internet is the printing press of the new American Revolution, just as the awakened people are the new Revolutionary Army. Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty. As long as we are awake and alert, then we need not fear King George.
