Are We In the Middle of a Cyber False Flag Attack Being Launched to Justify War Against Iran?

Internet False Flag Against American Banks?

We reported last year that a “false flag” attack on the Internet could be used to justify a crack-down on free speech.

We’ve repeatedly noted that the U.S. or Israel might blow something up and then falsely blame it on Iran.

Last month, Michael Rivero put these two ideas together, theorizing that the U.S. or Israel was launching a false flag cyber attack on American banks, which they would blame on Iran as a justification for war.

Until today, the statements in the mainstream news that someone in the Middle East might have launched the web attacks on American banks was too nebulous for me to get excited about.

But today, the Wall Street Journal ran a prominent story directly blaming Iran. The story – entitled “Iran Renews Internet Attacks on U.S. Banks” – claims:

Iranian hackers renewed a campaign of cyberattacks against U.S. banks this week, targeting Capital One Financial Corp. and BB&T Corp. and openly defying U.S. warnings to halt, U.S. officials and others involved in the investigation into the attacks said.

The attacks, which disrupted the banks’ websites, showed the ability of the Iranian group to sustain its cyberassault on the nation’s largest banks for a fifth week, even as it announced its plans to attack in advance.

U.S. officials said the attacks against banks, and others against Middle Eastern energy companies, were sponsored by the Iranian government and approved at high [levels].

So it is now worth discussing Mr. Rivero’s theory.

The [option for starting war with Iran which] is the most likely, relates to the sudden flurry of media stories and statements by people like Joseph Lieberman about how Iranian hackers are attacking the US financial system computers. (Senator Lieberman has also been pressuring Obama to sign an executive order to take over the internet.) Of course, the common sense approach still applies. Why would Iran, which wishes to avoid a war, do something that provocative.

But we know that the US and Israel are behind the cyber-weapons like STUXNET, DUQU, FLAME, etc., taht these cyber-weapons were directed against Iran, and that one variant specifically targeted banks in Lebanon and Iran. We also know that the US financial system is stretched to the breaking point, and we know that if the government of either Greece of Spain is driven from office by angry protests, credit default swaps sold by Wall Street against those debts come due, and there is no money to pay the claims. The Euro might even collapse, and that would trigger even more Credit Default Swaps. So the final option, one that strikes me as very likely, is that Israel will take down the US financial computers, and blame it on Iran. This also gets Wall Street and Washington DC off the hook, because now the financial melt-down is an act of war, rather than the result of decades of Wall Street crime and corruption and the predations of Private Central Banks. US banks have already been hit with cyber attacks over the last two weeks, to set the stage. And this would also explain why the US corporate media has paid scant attention to the riots in Spain and Greece so that Americans still dependent on ABCNNBBCBS will remain oblivious to the fact that the Euro is falling apart.

This scenario also explains the testing of means to interfere with DNS to silence websites that may offer opposing interpretations of events (this too will be blamed on Iran).

Such a cyber false-flag also gives the US Government the excuse to take total control of the internet so that those pesky truth-seeking bloggers don’t give the slaves uppity ideas that this is just another war-starting hoax like the attack on the USS Liberty or 9-11.

PLEASE REPOST THIS THEORY TO YOUR SOCIAL NETWORKS. If we can make them doubt that the official story of a financial system computer crash will be believed by the public, we can get them to call it off! If the bank computers and alternative media do crash, the US/Israel did it!

Postscript: We have no knowledge about who is launching these cyber attacks against U.S. banks. But it is important to consider all posibilities.

    Yes, definelty false flag. Just last week I was listening to NPR and they had two computer “experts” on (I don’t recall who) but they were both “certain” that Iran was behind the attacks, but neither had Any Proof.
    But it didn’t stop them from repeating over and over, Iran Did It.
    What a load of bull.

      NPR is a total propaganda outfit. Their experts are usually always dual citizens or from think tanks. They also promote Psychology memes in the same way. NPR has 4 favorite topics that they circle all day, 7 days a week: White racists, the Demonisation of Iran, the holocaust, and Jewish culture.

        And FOX is Fair & Balanced?

        • geepers

          What do you think tom boy?

      • Rich H

        The point you obviously missed is the similarity to the hype and bullshit which got us into the Iraq war.

        • geepers

          no rich, i got your point. I was just expounding on it a bit. thanks.

  • Rogoraeck

    Well, you can say if it’s not Iran then it must be either Putin or Lukashenko. Maybe Osama Ben Laden which is still alive in some caves in Afghanistan.

  • geepers

    Another thing people can do is leave comments at websites like the CFR (council on Foreign relations) and tell them false flags of any kind will not be tolerated this time around. Sure, it won’t be published but the comment will be passed along to Senior members of CFR. They always have some article on the front page talking about Iran, or other enemy of israel by one of the PNAC signers or Dual citizens with israel.

    Also do the same for all the “think tanks”, like the American Enterprise, etc.

    Any thing for a false flag,this equals money for people like the bushes for one,the industrial complex and others,you son dies,they get rich.when are we Americans going to say enough.we do the work,we pays the bill,and we die,for what or who?——-last very important,—-google —-CAFR—-you willbe shocked,study it

    Sanctions, similar to the ancient siege, are acts of war according to the Just War Theory as offered by Noam Chomsky and others.
    The war with Iran has begun and we started it.

  • old_frt

    Cyberattacks are more likely to be caused by some fat teenage wanker in Bellevue, WA than a Hebrew or Farsi spouting zealot.

    • geepers

      na, It a jew or one of your langley boys. Jews are behind quite a bit of terror as well as your langley team.

  • Entropy Ann

    Even if Iran were launching cyber-attacks against US financial interests, it can only really be considered retaliation for decades of far more egregious actions against Iran by the United States and its satellites.

    And with the fedgov concocted “foiled” “plot” to “bomb” the non-Federal non-Reserve Bank of NY the other day, this fits right in with the meme.

    The Iranian cyber attack is not a false flag event. The attacks are coming from Beirut and are funded by Iran. This is similar to the drone that flew into Israel to pick up Israel’s radar signature. It to was funded by Iran.
