Terror Attack Kills 3 and Injures Dozens in Boston … Further Losses of Liberty and More War On The Way?

Will Brutal Terror Attack Be Used to Justify Martial Law and More War?

A horrific terror attack in Boston today killed 3 and injured dozens.

5 unexploded bombs have also been found.

As such, it is definitely a terror attack.

Our prayers go out to the families of those hurt, and to the people of Boston.

It is too early to tell if it is false flag terrorism or real terrorism.   Either way, prominent Americans have noted for years that another terrorist attack could usher in martial law (we’re already pretty close) … and more war (we’re in a lot already):

  • Ron Paul stated the government “is determined to have martial law”, and that the government is hoping to get the people “fearful enough that they will accept the man on the white horse”.  Paul said last year (at 28:00):

    What I fear the most is a false flag – something happening where one of our ships goes down, or there’s a plane that goes down, and of course it HAD to be the Iranians, you know, for sure, for certain.

“We have to be careful, if somebody does this kind of provocation, big violent explosions of some kind, we have to not take the word of the masters there in Washington that this was some terrorist event because it could well be a provocation allowing them, or seemingly to allow them to get what they want.”

  • The highly influential Brookings Institution wrote a report in 2009 called “Which Path to Persia?” which states (pages 84-85):

It would be far more preferable if the United States could cite an Iranian provocation as justification for the airstrikes before launching them. Clearly, the more outrageous, the more deadly, and the more unprovoked the Iranian action, the better off the United States would be.Of course, it would be very difficult for the United States to goad Iran into such a provocation without the rest of the world recognizing this game, which would then undermine it. (One method that would have some possibility of success would be to ratchet up covert regime change efforts in the hope that Tehran would retaliate overtly, or even semi-overtly, which could then be portrayed as an unprovoked act of Iranian aggression.)

  • A number of very high-level former intelligence officers – including several that personally briefed presidents every day on matters of national security – stated that better communications between the U.S. and Iran were needed to “reduce the danger of … covert, false-flag attack”
  • One of America’s top constitutional and military law experts – Jonathan Turley – writes:

Many critics have argued that there is a concerted effort to push the United States into a war with Iran by supporters of Israel. Patrick Clawson, director of research for the highly influential pro-Israel Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP) think tank, seemed intent to prove those rumors true this week in comments as a luncheon on “How to Build US-Israeli Coordination on Preventing an Iranian Nuclear Breakout.” Clawson casually discusses how to create a false flag operation to push the U.S. into war to overcome any reluctance by the public. We have been discussing how many leaders like Senator Joe Lieberman had begun to use the same rhetoric that led to the last two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and how the suggest timing of an attack has been tied to the presidential election.

In his remarks, Clawson helpfully lists a series of historical events used to push the country into war like the Gulf of Tonkin incident that gave us the Vietnam War. Clawson expressed his frustration in acknowledging that it is “[v]ery hard for me to see how the United States President can get us to war with Iran.” However, there is hope. Clawson explains that the “traditional way” to get the country into a war is through false flags or manufactured incidents where Americans are killed. Thus, he observes, “we are in the game of using covert means against the Iranians, we could get nastier about it. So, if in fact the Iranians aren’t going to compromise, it would be best if somebody else started the war.”

The fact that one of the leading analysis for the WINEP would feel comfortable in making such comments is itself quite chilling. It indicates that such discussions have become sufficiently regular that it has creeped into public discussion. It is a measure of the secret pressure building to push this country into a third major war despite our crippling economic conditions and losses in military personnel. The assumption in Washington is that neither Romney nor Obama could oppose such a war. Even if Obama does not publicly support Israel, the assumption is that political allies of Israel in Washington can guarantee that we would offer extensive military loans and intelligence. Even if there is a delay in such military loans and support, the assumption is that Israel can go to war with the understanding that the United States will cover a significant portion of the costs. Moreover, in his remarkably candid remarks, Clawson shows how the U.S. can easily be forced into direct combat by pushing Iran to simply kill some Americans or sink a few of our ships. Then members would be clamoring for revenge. Notably, the Israelis have been ratcheting up the war rhetoric in pushing Iran, which predictably has now reserved the right to engage in a preemptive strike not just against Israeli but U.S. interests. We would then, again, find ourselves in a war without any public debate or collective decision.

While Clawson adds a passing caveat that he is not advocating such an approach, his remarks are clearly designed to show how the group can get the United States into a war for Israel if only we can get Iran to kill some of our citizens or soldiers. Those people are of course expendable props in Clawson’s realpolitik.

By the way, Clawson has been enlisted to give his insightful analysis at the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. He is also a member of the National Defense University’s Institute for National Strategic Studies. The World Bank connection is particularly interesting given the history with Paul Wolfowitz who pushed the U.S. into two disastrous wars in the Bush Administration and was rewarded with being made the head of the World Bank.

It is the callous disconnect that is most chilling in these remarks. Thousands of U.S. soldiers have died or have been crippled for life in these wars that have left the country near bankruptcy (and increasingly hostile “allies” in Afghanistan and Iraq). Those casualties and costs, however, appear immaterial in the discussion of supporting Israel in a war against Iran.

And false flags have long been planned against Syria.

    Israel kicked off Independence Day
    celebrations today…what happened today in Boston has indeed all the
    blueprints of a typical Mossad operation or better say a FALSE FLAG OP

      Randy, you are a conspiracy nut and a Jew-hater. Shalom.

    Randy beat me to it. It’s Israels ‘Independence Day’. Maybe they were just bored and decided to hit Boston. Have to wait for the ‘official’ story from Washington/NY. Maybe it’s Iran..LOL

    Since the only ‘suspect’ is Saudi, it should be interesting. And the Prez does not have to declare a National Emergency to take over everything. He signed an new Exec. Order last month, on the 16th, that takes care of such legalities. Now he and his secretaries have total control of everything, anytime he wants. Or didn’t you know that ?

    Military Draft? No Problem! We have it covered.
    Banking? No Problem!
    Food, water, energy, transportation? No problem!
    Conscript for work details? No problem!
    Security? No problem!
    Resources? No problem!

    Health care? No problem!

    And you thought the Nazis were gone…lol.

    Information has changed, there were not officially 5 unexploded bombs found, the WSJ report you cited has been updated to say:

    “Counterterrorism officials found five additional suspect devices around
    the Boston area on Monday, but a law-enforcement official later said
    closer examinations led them to doubt that they were bombs. An earlier
    version of this article cited people briefed on the investigation saying
    officials believed they were undetonated explosive devices.”

    Within hours of the double blast at the Boston marathon it was already reported that the authorities have used the opportunity to beta test the takeover on cellular networks (under the pretext of “preventing the detonation of explosives by cellular remote control”), the closure of highways and pedestrian walkways, and similar DHS preparations for martial law.
