Problem-Reaction-Solution: False Flag AttacksFalse-flag attacks are an example of the political technique known as Problem-Reaction-Solution.
The most popular type of false-flag attack is where a government actually carries out an attack, such as a terrorist attack, against it's own people, then blames it on a foreign or domestic enemy. The public demands the government take action against the apparent perpetrator, and the government willingly obliges by starting a war against their chosen enemy and/or instituting domestic police state measures.
Sometimes, a government need not carry out the attack itself. It can provoke and then facilitate an attack carried out by a real enemy, so that it can then justify a declaration of war on the basis that "the enemy fired the first shot".
There are even instances where there was no attack at all. These are known as fabricated attacks.
The truth is concealed from the public, and only emerges years or decades later.
"Why, of course, the people don't want war... But it is always a simple matter to drag the people along... That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."Historical False-Flag, Facilitated or Fabricated Attacks

The Burning of Rome, AD64, Emperor Nero's power was being threatened by the growth of Christianity. He wanted some way to eliminate his enemy, so he ordered that Rome be set on fire, so that he could blame it on the Christians. Seeing the Christians as a threat, the Roman citizens persecuted the Christians, and Nero's power was safe.
The USS Maine Incident, 1898, The United States government sought to invade the Philippines and end Spanish colonial rule of the islands.

The Assassination of Franz Ferdinand, 1914, the event that started World War I, was an event orchestrated by British and French intelligence services.
The Sinking of RMS Lusitania, 1917, United States President Woodrow Wilson wanted to get his country involved in World War One. But he knew the American public would not accept a war unless they were convinced they were under attack. So the passenger ship RMS Lusitania was packed with explosives and sent into German controlled waters without protection. It was sunk and a million Americans signed up to fight World War One.
The Manchurian Incident, 1931, The Japanese government sought to invade the whole Manchuria region of China, but not wanting to be seen as the aggressors, they dynamited a section of their own railroad at Mukden, in southern Manchuria.

The Reichstag Fire, 1933, Just a month after being elected Chancellor of Germany, Hitler wanted to begin turning Germany into a police state and establish himself as dictator.

The Gleiwitz Incident, 1939, After seizing Austria and Czechoslovakia, the Nazis set their sights on Poland. But the German people would not support an invasion of Poland, because they did not consider them a threat.

After this incident, the German people supported an invasion of Poland.
The Attack on Pearl Harbor, 1941, The US Administration of FDR sought to involve America in World War II. But the American people wanted to stay out of it. So the Administration provoked Japan, in the hope that they would attack the U.S. The plan worked, and FDR made sure that the attacks took place successfully and had the maximum effect and impact. Believing that it was a surprise and unprovoked attack by the Japanese at Pearl Harbor, Americans now supported U.S. entry into the war.
Operation Ajax, 1953, Democratically elected President Mossadeq of Iran was unsympathetic to Western oil interests. So the CIA and MI6 orchestrated a revolt against among the Iranian people. False-flag attacks - including the bombing of a religious leader, attacks on a mosque, and machine-gunning of civilians - were carried out by the CIA and blamed on Mossadeq to turn his people against him. He was successfully overthrown and replaced by a U.S.-backed Shah who began a reign of terror in the country which lasted 25 years. The U.S. then repeated this technique of overthrowing a foreign leader over and over in countries throughout the world.
Operation Gladio, 1956-1990, A decades-long covert campaign of terrorism and deceit, in Italy and other nations, directed by the intelligence services of the West, against their own populations. Hundreds of innocent people were killed or maimed in terrorist attacks - on train stations, supermarkets, cafes, offices schools, school buses, etc - which were then blamed on "leftist subversives" or other political opponents. The purpose was to demonize designated enemies and frighten the public into supporting ever-increasing powers for government leaders and their elitist cronies. It was known as the "strategy of tension".
Operation Northwoods, 1962, A secret plan drawn up by the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff and signed by the Secretary of Defense, for carrying out a variety of false-flag terrorist attacks which could be blamed on Cuba to provide a pretext for invading that country.

The plan was declassified in 1998.
The Gulf of Tonkin Incident, 1964, President Johnson needed a pretext in order to commit the American people to an expanding covert war in South-East Asia. On August 2nd Western news media reported that a U.S. destroyer, the Maddox, in the Gulf of Tonkin, had been attacked by three Vietnamese PT boats. Two days later the Maddox was said to have been attacked again. Documents declassified in 2005 reveal that in fact on August 2nd the Maddox had fired the first shots, and that he alleged events of August 4th never even took place.
The Attack on USS Liberty, 1967, During the Six Day War between Israel and Arab countries, the U.S. destroyer USS Liberty was sent into the eastern Mediterranean, off the coast of Israel. The plan was to use Israeli forces to attack and sink the ship, killing all it's crew, and then blame the attack on Egypt, to justify the involvement of the U.S. in the war. The Liberty was attacked by three unmarked Israeli fighter bombers, as well as three Israeli torpedo boats. The attack lasted for over 3 hours; help was sent by nearby U.S. aircraft carriers, but incredibly the help was personally recalled by President Johnson, who declared "I want that ship going to the bottom". The attack would have succeeded, but it was spotted by a Russian spy plane, and the Israeli attack was called off. The crew survivors were sworn to secrecy.
The Kuwaiti Baby Killings, 1990,
The following events are supported by indisputable evidence, but continue to be denied by mainstream politicians and the media.
The World Trade Center bombing, 1993, The Oklahoma City bombing, 1995,
The Moscow Apartment bombings, 1999,
The September 11 Attacks, 2001, 3 World Trade Center buildings were destroyed in covert controlled demolitions as part of a coordinated attack orchestrated by agencies of the U.S. government. The attacks - which also involved hijacking four planes, two of which were flown into the Twin Towers, one into the Pentagon and one into a field in Pennsylvania, while NORAD was rendered ineffective - were blamed on Islamic extremists. The subsequent "War on Terror" provided the justification for the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan, and increased police state measures in countries throughout the world.

The Attack on South Ossetia, 2008, On August 8th, Western mainstream news reported that Russia had sneak attacked South Ossetia, a region of Georgia. Evidence quickly emerged however that Georgia had attacked it's own region, in an attempt to put down the growing independence movement. The South Ossetians wanted to re-united with North Ossetia as part of the Russian Federation. Russian forces only entered the region after the South Ossetians and Russian peacekeepers in the region had been attacked by Georgia, who had support from the U.S. and Israel.
