The world slipped closer to nuclear war. Big false flags—actual, suspected, and anticipated—were a key factor. But hardly anybody noticed. Everyone was riveted by the story of actor Jussie Smollet, who supposedly paid a couple of Nigerian-American bodybuilders for a staged racist-homophobic near-lynching. The ostensible motive: Add a zero to Smollet’s pathetic little million-a-year salary.

The Jussie Smollet hoax was story number 29 of the 31 we covered on this week’s False Flag Weekly News.

In a world filled with false flags, this one just wasn’t all that important. Conspiracy theories that Obama was somehow involved are not supported by logic and evidence. If you really need a conspiracy theory (beyond Smollet conspiring with Nigerians) try this: The whole thing was staged to distract us, to get us talking about stupid celebrities and divisive, emotionally-galvanizing issues unrelated to the real dirty business conducted by our psychopathic rulers.

The week’s biggest suspected false flag was the bombing in Pulwama, Kashmir. This one may start a nuclear war. Over 40 Indian soldiers were killed in an attack attributed to an angry young Kashmiri suicide bomber supposedly backed by Pakistani intelligence. More likely it was an Indo-Zionist false flag designed to demonize Pakistan and rally Indians behind Pakistan-hating Modi, who is about to launch his re-election campaign.

The first clue is the timing: Pakistan has nothing to gain by heightening tensions now. Recently elected pro-9/11-truth Prime Minister Imran Khan is desperately seeking money to revitalize his country’s crumbling economy. The Pulwama attack is terrible PR for Pakistan as it proffers its global begging bowl. But it’s perfect PR for Modi’s campaign launch. And as Sabtain Ahmed Dar writes: “Modi’s framing of Pakistan as a terrorist state on the visit of Saudi crown prince Muhammad Bin Salman cunningly and subliminally (seeks) an advantage in its foreign policy with Iran by checkmating and framing both the Saudis and Pakistanis at the same time.”

Another sign of a likely false flag is a bigger bang and more casualties than would be expected, giving the event a huge media footprint. The alleged Pulwama attacker supposedly managed to kill more than forty occupation soldiers. While not impossible, such hugely successful operations often owe their success to inside help. Classic examples include:

In analyzing suspected false flags, the first rule of thumb is: If the event is big and bloody enough to make a huge media splash, whoever gains from that splash is the likely perpetrator. It takes skill and resources to create big, bloody attacks. Nobody will invest the necessary resources in planning and carrying out such an event unless they anticipate big gains.[1]As Robert Pape explains in Dying to Win, indigenous forces resisting occupations—as in Kashmir, Palestine, Afghanistan, and elsewhere—often do target occupying forces in suicide terror attacks. These are strategic military acts designed to raise the cost of occupation and eventually convince the occupier to cut his losses and go home. Such “real” (non-false-flag) attacks are usually of modest scale and are designed to “bleed” the occupier, not inflame the occupier’s citizens into demanding an intensified occupation. This strategic use of “terrorism” is exemplified by the death of a thousand cuts the US is suffering in Afghanistan.

Another major suspected false flag this week was the “desecration of Jewish graves” near Strasbourg, France. Like Jussie Smollet fake attack, this one reinforced mainstream politically correct narratives about the supposed persecution of minorities. But unlike the Smollet affair, this one had huge political implications: It seemed perfectly timed to save Macron by demonizing the Yellow Vest uprising as “anti-Semitic.” In an orchestrated response reminiscent of the “spontaneous” Charlie Hebdo marches, “Thousands Marched Against Anti-Semitism in France.” Apparently everyone has forgotten the long history of fake anti-Semitic incidents, may of them as ludicrously amateur as Jussie Smollet’s. The difference is that the media will never let us forget that Smollet’s attack was fake—while it will never let us remember that the “anti-Semitic” ones were.

Sometimes the most important false flags are the ones looming on the horizon. This week there were two: An imminent one targeting Venezuela, and a bigger, nastier, further-off one targeting Iran.

The supposed Western aid convoy seeking to enter Venezuela from Columbia was obviously a set-up for false flags designed to trigger an escalation of Trump’s war on Maduro’s democratically-elected, constitutionally-legitimate government. Not long after Russia warned that it was coming, the predicable “Maduro attack on the aid convoy” broke out. As in Ukraine, Syria, and other targets of US-Israeli destabilization, mysterious masked gunmen fired at both sides, igniting bloodshed that could be blamed on the targeted government. After an aid truck was burned by mysterious arsonists , the Venezuelan government fingered “false flag expert” Pompeo’s “agents.”

After they are done with Venezuela, Trump’s neocon wrecking crew may head for Iran. Last week, Mnuchin’s Zionist-run Treasury Department sanctioned the biggest US-Iran friendship organization, the New Horizon NGO, which has brought hundreds of Western authors, scholars, activists, and media personalities to conferences in Tehran and Mashhad. The transparently bogus excuse for shutting down New Horizon was a minor spy scandal that hand nothing to do with the New Horizon organization. Yesterday Veterans Today Senior Editor Gordon Duff suggested that recent anti-Iran moves are greasing the skids for another disastrous war of aggression for the benefit of Israel. In his article Trump, Kushner Bolton Weighing False Flag Scenarios for April-May War with Iran Duff cites insider sources warning of “a dirty bombing in the US or a massive explosion, to be blamed on a mine in the Straits of Hormuz, that cripples one of America’s defective aircraft carriers.”

If the US invades Venezuela, and especially if it attacks Iran, a global war involving Russia and perhaps China is a real possibility. Trump’s shredding the INF treaty, which will put US and Russian forces on hair trigger alerts with very little time to respond to attack warnings, make such apocalyptic scenarios even more likely. Those of us who promote false flag awareness should remember that war-trigger deceptions like the destruction of the Maine, the Lusitania, and the Pearl Harbor fleet—not to mention the World Trade Center—are far more important than pathetic little scams by the likes of Jussie Smollet.

    JUDAISTS CARRY THE FALSE FLAG OF YEHUD, A NON EXISTENT NATION.

    Thanks for the interesting article, Sir. I do not know enough about Kashmir to say if I agree or not with that point, but the biggest hoaxters in the world today are the Judaists.

    BTW, Trump is a false flag. They call him a Russian asset, but he is really an Israeli asset, the way he signed the finance bill supporting amnesty and BLOCKING the building of the border wall.

    This proves HE is a false flag, carrying the flag of USA, claiming MAGA, but really doing MIGA (Make Israel Greater Again).

    Of course, the biggest false flags are the Judaists, claiming to be “Jews”, which is the English word for Yehudi, citizen (flag carrier) of Yehud (Judea), though Judea does not even exist!

    “Jews” = False flag and fake citizens of a non-existent nation.

    So next time you see a “Jew”, ask him to show you the flag of Yehud on his passport—and he won’t have any. You will know for sure HE is a false flag.

    There is absolutely no doubt that 40 Indian troops were killed in that suicide attack.
    Pakistan is desperate to cause tensions in Kashmir and it has been doing all sorts of mischievous activities in Kashmir for the past 70 years.

    If I were writing an entire article about Pulwama I would discuss historical context. Most if not all of the biggest “Pakistani supported radical Muslim terror attacks against India” have been either proven false flags (as in the Mumbai attacks analyzed in Elias Davidsson’s book https://www.globalresearch.ca/the-betrayal-of-india-a-close-look-at-the-2008-mumbai-terror-attacks-2/5593721 ) or close-to-proven ones.

    My argument here is that from the standpoint of an intelligence analyst, who has to quickly size up events and act on the basis of what the truth most likely is, we should assume that events like this that make a huge media splash and have a clear beneficiary were orchestrated by the beneficiary. If that beneficiary has a history of orchestrating similar events, as India’s RAW (supported by Mossad and possibly elements of NATO) obviously does, the case becomes even stronger.

  13. Well, the issue is that there are two classes of hoax. There are the ones with Establishment backing — some faction or factions of the Deep State are behind it. And then there are just private hoaxes that have no such backing.

    It’s actually quite easy to see which ones are which because there are only a limited set of writers who will ever call out an Establishment hoax.

    The fact that people like Sailer and Derbyshire are going on about this Jussie Smollet case already indicates that the hoax never had Establishment backing because if it did, then these guys wouldn’t be calling it out. That’s simply not part of their job description!

    Here is a striking example. Compare this hoax: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/frankfurt-mass-sexual-assault-refugees-fake-made-up-bild-germany-cologne-new-year-allegations-a7581291.html

    to the Cologne hoax exactly one year before it. Both were hoaxes with a very similar story line but the Frankfurt one was a freelance thing that had no Establishment backing so the media actually did their job and debunked it.

SmolletT is REAL. Caught red-handed.The bigger story by far, as it can’t be ignored or laughed off. SmolletT casts a very long and welcome shadow over the whole fake victim industry for homos and everybody else flying their fake flagellations. It exposes the fake news and puts them on the back foot. It couldn’t have come at a better time & it’s something ordinary American voters can relate to a lot more than some Pulwammy or other. The SmolletT hoax and the expected lack of any real collusion findings in the dragged-out Mueller Russian hoax will be far more important in getting the president re-elected than some petty little conspiracy story about the likes of Palwummy.

  23. El Dato says:

    COME ON, I have had it with the “everything is a false flag, including the false flags and the false-flagged false flags” articles.

    The provocation regarding Venezuela shows the real mad skills our Dark Planners manage to bring the table: a bunch of shit-for-brains who have read Mein Radio Gleiwitz could engineer something less obviously retarded, even if it is meant for the MSM raw sewage embetterement propaganda pump with Wolf Blitzer.

    (Still, note, I consider it very possible that Timothy McVeigh did work on direct orders and is living comfortably somewhere in Argentina)

    Back to Kashmir: Since when is it difficult to kill 40 people sitting in buses when you have a determined suicide bomber on hand? We had that during the high times of the Iraq occupation every single week. And worse.

    The real deal here is that the US is deeply involved in direct financing of the Bomba Sunni/Saudi Muslim Brothers. I hope India rips them a new one. It’s been 10 years since the Mumbai attacks btw.

    https://www.rt.com/op-ed/452461-india-pakistan-showdown-terrorism/

    So, to summarise: the US has a long and documented history of backing anti-Iranian Sunni-based Pakistani terror groups. Saudi Arabia and its Gulf allies have been funnelling financial support to the LeT, who has a direct alliance and operates in the same area as the JeM (who also receives direct funding from Saudi Arabia), which recently claimed responsibility for an attack which killed at least 40 Indian police personnel.

    It’s not exactly rocket science. Call me a little bit suspicious, but perhaps this is why Saudi Arabia was quite open in its assurances to Islamabad that it need not go after JeM directly, even while the group’s leadership apparently continues to live comfortably inside Pakistan.

  24. Vagabond says:

    The 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, which Brigade Gen. Ben Partin proved (and all kinds of evidence including news footage shows) was far too destructive to be attributed to a fertilizer truck bomb.

    This is frustrating to read as it lacks any awareness about the ease of which fertilizer can be used as an incredible ordinance.

    The earlier mention about “framing” Pakistan as a terrorist state should have signaled further reading would hurt my head.

    Illegal immigration is NOT a national emergency, as Ron Unz has shown. (It has little effect on demographics compared to legal immigration; illegals don’t have high crime rates; etc.) So the Wall “emergency” is fake.

    To continue in this vein, the forecast for false flags and the ensuing mayhem looks pretty grim, but in the ME it will be directly related to the fighting season; so, like in 2003, wars will (or will hopefully not) commence around the middle of March.

    The current war preparations themselves are a cover to distract everyone from the measly findings Mueller is about to unveil.

    And April, of course, will feature the Kushner “peace” plan. The carrot after many sticks.

  34. This entire article is a false flag.

    It’s been genned up to divert attention from the ongoing horrorshow of the zealots in charge of our leftist theocracy. The Smollet incident never was nor ever could be considered a false flag. Contrary to this article’s unsupported assertions, the leftist press has never thought of it as such. Instead the vast bulk of them are simply once again worshiping the holy narrative, and believe they are morally entitled to do or say anything in support of it. Neither objective truth nor reality itself will ever be allowed to get in the way of “how things ought to be”.

    Further along, the article tries out more attacks on the left’s usual suspects, including Trump, neocons (whose original founders were Trotskyites on the run from Stalin), anti-Maduro Venezuelans (i.e., Venezuelans who have come to their senses regarding the inevitable dystopia of socialism), nuclear war memes (insinuating that the West should therefore disarm), Russia, anti-moslems, etc., etc., ad nauseum.

    Here’s news for you: whatever Trump may do about Venezuela, neither direct nor indirect military invasion will ever be involved. He’s making great headway without it. The duly elected Guaido was legally invested as President by the Venezuelan National Assembly’s own laws having absolutely nothing to do with US coercion. Little by little, military units and the populace as a whole are supporting him. Hell, even China is negotiating with him, because they realize Maduro’s days are numbered.

    My perusal of Barrett’s bio and other articles leads me to conclude that he is a covert apologist for leftist excesses, always blaming them on somebody else especially Big Government/Big Business, as if those can somehow be divorced from the left who are comfortably in bed with both.

    I’m tired of controlled opposition from the left. I strongly suggest everyone wake up and refuse to be sucked in any further.

    Bingo – The explosive charges were probably planted in the elevator shafts during normal maintenance over a period off time and detonated by remote control when the planes hit – obvious implosions. The only input the Arabs (need to know) had were to steer the planes into the buildings as a diversion for setting off the charges. Such a project as 9/11 was/is far beyond Arab capabilities. There’s very little doubt in my mind it was the Jews who did it.

    This is what I saw.

    I flew into Denpasar, Bali four days after the Bali Bombing. I had booked the ticket months before and I ignored government warnings that it was dangerous to travel to Bali at that time. To be honest I really couldn’t afford to cancel the ticket and my visa (in the country in which I boarded the plane) was running out in two days so really I had no alternative.

    I caught a taxi from the airport to Legian Beach (the next suburb along from Kuta where the bombing took place) and was informed by my taxi driver that the Western press was only concentrating on the foreigners who had been killed. There were a large number of Balinese killed, particularly taxi drivers who were parked in the street waiting for pickups from the night clubs in the area. Some of these were his friends. He was still very upset.

    I had been to Bali before and I noticed that the streets were much more deserted than normal and over the month that I stayed there all the foreigners left leaving hotels with 250 beds completely empty and lots of penniless Balinese traders. I soon found myself often the only foreigner on the streets. Slightly disconcerting after dark as if anyone was going to be a target for the “terrorists” it was me.

    About two days after I arrived I walked down the main road from Legian to Kuta and came to the bomb site. I was amazed at the amount of destruction. The bomb must have been huge as it had demolished every shop for about a hundred meters and blown the fronts and windows out in both directions from the blast for another hundred. It wa a scene of absolute destruction. In particular I was very impressed by the size of the crater left by the bomb. It was about four to five metres wide and about two and a half metres deep. In order to get past it I had to walk over it on a rickety bridge made of wooden planks. The crater pretty much made the street impassable but as it was the main street leading to the banks and the shopping mall in Kuta I understand why the authorities had to bridge it just to keep the place going.

    Now I know very little about explosives but this was no amateur job. I have seen bomb craters in my travels and this crater was about the same size as some caused by the bombings in Laos and Cambodia which were the result of large ground penetrating bombs dropped from airplanes at great height. I read somewhere that generally bombs exploded on the ground (not dropped from planes) don’t leave much of a crater as almost all the energy is reflected into the air.

    It’s hard to understand how a van packed with gas cylinders could cause such destruction. This was definitely a full scale military operation using lots of high explosive. As I said before the damage this blast caused was enormous. And the main victims were not the tourists but the Balinese.

    Just one of life’s experiences.

    I suspect even General Dunford knows that the Taliban’s strategic center of gravity is its support by Pakistan. Take that away, and the Taliban is walking on air. How might that be done? Recognize that so long as the current Afghan government is aligned with India, Pakistan has no choice but to support the Taliban. Pakistan’s threat is India, and Pakistan needs Afghanistan as an ally to offer it some strategic depth. Above all, it cannot have a hostile Afghanistan putting Pakistan in a two-front situation. So our first step is to give the current Afghan government a (secret, not public) ultimatum: cut all ties to India and become a loyal and subservient ally of Pakistan. If they won’t, our troops and money go home. The money, more than the troops, will concentrate their thinking.

    I was there when the bombs went off. Stood in one of the 2 discotheques that were targeted. The first bomb went off in the ( for my) neighbouring discotheque. Sounded like a gas explosion, but it was a suicide attack (bomb in a rugsack). The second large one (that another commenter mentions) blew me of my feet.

    I was lucky, since the discotheque that I stood in was packed. The discotheque, Sari club, was open in the front, where the white van (with the bomb inside) was parked just across the pavement. I know that people who were close to the car almost completely discinerated ( don’t ask me how I know, I know). I stood in the back of the discotheque (near the dance floor) and so the people in front of me acted as a buffer.

    What killed most people was the fire in the Sari Club immediately afterwards. The roof was made of dried palmleaves, which set the disco ablaze. Most victims were Australians who were partying in the Sari Club, not Balinese taxi drivers as the other commenter said, although they died too…

    I was very lucky, I could escape the fire by climbing over a wall (with help from someone who pushed me over the wall). Others weren’t so lucky.

    The content of the Balibomb has been confirmed by 3 independent laboratories in Australia in the UK. It contained mainly stuff you can buy at your local hardstore, fertilizer amongst others.

    The precize content is described here (behind a paywall.. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0039914005001979)

    Lots of nonsense about the content of the Balibomb has been written, mini nuke is just one of them.

    For the most atrocious one, you should Google: ‘Nick fielding Sunday Times, Bin Laden, Bali’. Fielding wrote that a CIA report found that the bomb contained C4 (explosive only available by Indonesian military), and that Bin Laden payed 87000 dollars (I do this from memory, not sure if the amount is correct) to orchestrate the bombing. That turned out to be bollocks…

    A guy, called Hambali is prisoner in Guantanamo Guy till this day. It is said that he is the brain of the bali bombing and the one who payed the convicted Balibombers.
    A long story short: all of this nonsense too.

    I have written about the Balibombings (in Dutch): http://degrijzeduif.blogspot.com/2015/12/over-terrorisme.html?m=1

    I did my best to get my voice heard in the Dutch press. Without succes. The only ones who had succes there were the ones who felt justice when the bombers received the death penalty or thought that the death penalty was not bad enough. And that is the end of the story.

    Of course that is not the end of the story if you are a surviving victim of the Balibombings (like me). But surviving victims are seldom heard in the media, because their story does not fit the narrative. I can say that with 100% certainty.

    Narratives like mini-nukes get all the attention though. How come?

    What you mention is what I also saw when I visited Indonesia. Bali was seen as a hell hole by Muslims from Java and Lombok. And not only Muslims, to be honest, it was a hell hole, especially Kuta, where the Balibombings took place (lots of alcohol, prostitution, westernized dumbness).

    It is for that reason ironic that the Balibombers targeted a person who actually agreed that Bali, especially Kuta, was a hell hole: me.

    What more can I say

    1) Bali was not a synthethic false flag attack, like so many others. The Balibombings happened
    2) It was not a false flag either: the perpetrators were found, and convicted in a decent trial
    3) the attack was foolish (which terror attacks aren’t?), but supported from the feeling that something had to be done about ‘America’. Bin Laden was a Hero in Java in 2002, for the reason that he was seen as someone who had stood up for the rights of Muslims (Remember Suharto had killed millions of Javanese, all with the approval from Uncle Sam). The perpetrators thought they hit ‘America’ by hitting tourists in Bali. They did not. They hit, amongst others, me, a guy who sympathized with their struggle and feelings of Bali being a hell hole.

    A good take on the double-standards applied to these hoaxes is to apply the concept of “triangulated conflict” developed by French sociologist Lucien Cerise.

    https://www.egaliteetreconciliation.fr/Lucien-Cerise-Au-nom-d-une-cause-morale-on-fait-progresser-quelque-chose-d-amoral-39660.html

    In view of the inevitable and irrepressible rise of “indigenous” nationalism in Western Europe, the real powers-that-be pretend to embrace the “indigenous” cause, side with it and continuously denigrates its “enemies” (the immigrants). In a same fashion, these powers pretend to side with the “immigrants” to control the “anti-racist” organisations and direct them against the “indigenous” people.

    In other terms, the Talmudic cabal at the top of the triangle plays the “indigenous” against the “immigrants”, the “Whites” against the Black/Brown”. But recently, as nationalistic identity groups were on a sharp rise in Europe, the Talmudists needed to take control by pretending that they are even more nationalistic than the indigenous people.

    The Talmudists always try to take control of social movements by pretending that they share their driving ideology. This is what happened with the Russian Revolution, the May 1968 movement. This is what is happening now in the West with the advent of an Alt-Right controlled by the Zionists.

    Some hoaxes reinforces the illusion that the Zionists side with the victimised Whites of the Alt-Right. There is a number of sycophantic imbeciles willing to go along with this scam: Tommy Robinson in the UK, Gert Wilder in Holland.

    The mini-nukes are certainly a turn-off. Why bring them up at all? Why not say it was just a whopping big bomb, that would be more acceptable to most people. Or do surveys show that mini-nukes are more popular among the conspiracy crowd (of which I am one). If you going to make these sorts of whack-job claims at least provide some evidence (not just big hole and lack of radiation because sophistication etc). When I hear ‘mini-nukes’ I worry that Mr Barrett is not just terminally stupid but some sort of CIA propaganda plant. How does he expect to convince normal people if he brings up mini-nukes? It has the opposite effect, normal people become more convinced than ever that conspiracy theorists are irredeemable nut-jobs.

    According to Sumantra Bose in his book, Kashmir: Roots of Conflict, Paths to Peace, around 40000 (Indian estimates) to 80000 (Hurriyat estimates) civilians, separatist guerilla fighters and Indian security personnel died from the time period of 1989 to 2002 in both Kashmir Valley and Jammu . More than 4600 security personnel, 13500 civilians and 15937 militants including 3000 from outside Jammu and Kashmir (mostly Pakistanis and some Afghans) were killed in this fourteen-year period. Also in this period, 55,538 incidents of violence were recorded. Indian forces engaged in counter insurgency operations captured around 40,000 firearms, 150,000 explosive devices, and over 6 million rounds of assorted ammunition.[136] Jammu and Kashmir Coalition of Civil Society posits a figure of 70,000 deaths, most of them civilians killed by Indian forces.[137]

    @Jonathan Revusky

    I tried to post at your website, but it doesn’t work. It would be very kind from Unz Review if they would allow me to write to you through their comment system. Feel free to do with my comments what you like.

    You asked me who I thought is behind the Balibombings, I already gave a short answer to that:

    Those who were convicted by the Indonesian government are the ones who did it, no one else.

    Now for a thorough explanation I would have to explain the whole setting of the Balibombings, who is who, what was said and at what time, and why it matters. I cannot do that now, but I can give some details that I think are important. The missing parts need to filled in by others.

    A lot of info on the Balibombings can be found on Wikipedia (quite good last time I looked), in the Talanta paper that I referred to in my previous comment (the forensic study), and in the essay (written in Dutch) that I wrote and also referred to in my previous comment (you can Google translate that if you like). Info on Hambali can be found in a Times Magazine paper, or use the wikileaks search function and you will find what he is convicted for (by using torture). Do not forget to find the lying Nick Fielding report in Sunday Times that was at the time
    able to set Indonesia on fire by almost adding the country to the axis of evil.

    My current position on the Balibombings is best explained by a quote from Francis Bacon (I paraphrase): ‘what is past is past, the wise man has enough to do with the present’. But then there is also that other quote from (I think) Vonnegut: ‘You may be through with the past, that doesn’t mean that the past is through with you!’ Anyway, I try to stick to Bacon for the moment. I acknowledge this here as due to my position I only remember by memory. I did not look things up. I am through with the past (for the moment). However, sometimes the memory fails to acknowledge rightly what happened. That is a caveat you need to take into account when you read my comments.

    First, there is Abu Bakar Bashir, he is an Indonesian Muslim cleric who was very critical on the Suharto government, for instance by saying that Indonesia was an air conditioned bus, that was driven to the abyss, and the driver was Suharto. This guy got away with saying that at a time that Suharto (America’s friend) was still dictator in Indonesia. This means that Bashir must have powerful friends and at the same time is an enemy of the US. When the Balibombings happened he was almost immediately accused by the MSM of organising it (accused within days). He always denied and in the end no proof was found that he organized the Balibombings.

    Then there were 4 main perpetrators of the Balibombings. 3 received the death penalty, while another one (Ali Imron, the one who made the bomb) was sentenced for life. He got the life sentence because he repented, the other 3 didn’t repent. If the other 3 were smart they would have repented as well. They didn’t and prefered to become martyr. These guys were insane. No need to think that they would not be insane enough to commit the crime that the Balibombings were.

    The Talanta paper (very important). It shows amongst others how 3 independent laboratories found the content of the bomb in the van. They did not find C4, or nuclear material. Why would these laboratories lie about the content of the bomb.

    A manager of a hardstore (I forgot his name) was also arrested and convicted for
    selling so much stuff of which one should have made up his mind that it could only be used for making a bomb

    The trial itself: it was an open trial, America opposed it ( they wanted Bashir extradited to the US as he was seen as the mastermind of the Balibombings, not just some crazy locals who were, in the end, convicted by the Indonesian government).

    The perpetrators themselves always denied any Association with Bin Laden or Bashir. Why would they lie? They would have been even bigger local heroes than they are now if they acknowledged ties with Bin Laden, who was, at the time, seen as a Hero in Indonesia.

    Occam’s razor. I don’t need a flying Dutchman (like Bin Laden or whoever..) to explain why the perpetrators did what they did. (Of note, the flying Dutchman is our greatest invention, greater than Descartes’ Cogito ergo Sum. Descartes could only exist when he was thinking, while the flying Dutchman exists while he doesn’t exist! Only for one reason, to scare people away from finding ways to sail to the East (for that you had to pass the flying Dutchman who was sailing on the shores of South-West Africa, taking down any ship that tried to pass). Replace ‘sailing to the East’ with ‘finding truths about global wars’, and you know how great our invention of the flying Dutchman actually is).

    The perpetrators have acknowledged time and again why they performed the Balibombings: out of retaliation for the war in Afghanistan. Here Blowback makes perfect sense to me.

    The Nick Fielding paper. To be ‘truthful’ it needed two things

    1) a tie with Bin Laden. Conveniently, Bin Laden made a tape where he praised the Balibombings.

    2) a person who wired money from Bin Laden to the Balibombers. Hambali was tortured into a confession for doing that.

    Since Fielding’s report does not fit into the confession of the Balibombers and the Talanta report, I know that the Fielding report (that all MSM gullibly copy-pasted to their journals) is based on a lie

    What the Balibombings could make into a great essay is that it is a terror attack that actually happened. It wasn’t a false flag (although people tried to make it look like it was). And it was in the end well reported in the media, because (and this is important), the Indonesian government gave no room for alternative explanations that were more likely than the confessions that were made in the trial. This trial was made possible by decent policework which is always lacking in synthethic attacks or false flags.

    Synthethic terror attacks are usually always hysterical and then quickly forgotten. False flags always have loose ends. There are no loose ends in the Balibombings when you just follow the trial. I couldn’t find them. Perhaps I should challenge you to find them by only looking at the official story, i.e. the trial. Did I miss something?

    Some anecdotes you might find interesting. I was not the only Dutch person present at time of the Balibombings. When I tried to contact them through the media (sharing pain, means halving pain is a Dutch expression), I was easily supplied with email adresses and personal info so I could contact those who happened to be at the same place as I was on 12 October 2002. I found that very useful for my personal relieve, and this feeling was mutual. Me and my friends also had several meetings with people from the UK and Australia who remembered the Balibombings every 12 October. Sometimes these memorials were aired or reported on in the MSM. I stopped going to these memorials after a few years because I no longer needed them.

    Compare that with Bataclan, Nice, Charly Hebdo, Cologne, Brussels, Manchester. Have you ever seen a memorial from surviving victims of those synthethic events? – I have not and I think that is for the good reason that these events never happened. – Call that Willem’s razor: a terror attack that has no memorial service never happened.

    I can even say that more blunt. In 2015, after Bataclan happened, there were Dutch Bataclan visitors interviewed on national TV. They were crying and everybody in the MSM was lauding them as heroes.

    I remember how me and my friends were acting when we were asked by national TV to say how we lost a friend in the Balibombings and how it feels like to see a lot of dead people: I declined the invitation, but some of my friends who stayed behind in Indonesia, looking for my lost friend at morgues, did not. At time of the interview they were very shy and silent. Not crying at all, but feeling at loss. Afterwards they dispised the journalist who interviewed them (Step Vaessen) who only interviewed them for one reason: because it was good for her. Now after seeing the interview with the Dutch Bataclan survivors I naïvly thought I needed to help them. I had been through similar hell as they had went through. I could give them some good advice I thought. So I e-mailed the tv program that aired the segment on the Bataclan survivors. Now, in contrast to 2002, where I was easily supplied with email adresses of surviving victims by the media, I received nothing. You may call that Willem’s third razor: victims of a terrorist attack who are not willing to share their pain (so to halve their pain) with previous victims, are anything but victims of a terrorist attack.

    Hope you found these comments useful. Would be great if it could be made (one day) into an essay.

    I agree with you that these various events like Bataclan and such, it is very dubious that anything real happened at all.

    I was a bit puzzled by your saying that “blowback” makes sense though. I have tended towards the view that “blowback”, as a general explanation of these sorts of things, basically never makes sense. But, again, I never looked at that event specifically.

    The “incident” involving the USS Liberty during the Six-Day War bears mentioning, if only because it was a conspiracy between Israeli Puppet Lyndon Johnson and Israel’s Moshe Dayan to create a pretext for US entry (via nuclear bombing of Cairo) into Israel’s wars of territorial aggrandizement (and, quite likely, to trigger World War III).

    It was, of course, sort of a “reverse false flag” attack, in that Israeli aircraft would sink a US ship and let the sinking (and loss of the entire crew) be attributed to Egypt (whose air force Israel had destroyed some days earlier, with critical help from American assets sent by their government).

    In the event, the Liberty remained afloat, and Johnson did not run for re-election in 1968.

    Hi Jonathan,
    I get a blank screen (completely white) when I try to open the forum. It very likely has to do with my computer settings. E-mail is not much better, takes ages (for me) to open, if it opens at all. I do not mind. I think that I already look too much at a screen, so what others might call a nuisance, is good for me.

    Private messaging may be better though because messaging you here, is much asked for Unz Review. Why would Unz Review publish private messages to you on their forum? May be too much asked. So I try to keep on topic instead of becoming private, which is possible.

    The author claims that Bali was a false flag because they used a mini-nuke. That story is thoroughly debunked in the Talanta paper that I referred to in my previous comments (pdf of the paper here https://people.ok.ubc.ca/robrien/bailibombings.pdf), yet the author does not correct his paper. He prefers to stick to his idea that Bali was a false flag because it was mini-nuked.

    Apparantly the author prefers his own believes more than the truth. That is normal human behaviour, unfortunately. We all have our biases, reason why Freud was unable to treat most of his patients (they prefered to believe their unconcious or Ego). But a psychiatrist’s job is nevertheless to expose these biases. Even if that does not treat the patient, it may prevent others to make the same mistake that the patient made. That is what I like about your analyses: you expose several believes that are adhered fervently as they are believes from the unconcious. It also explains why so many hate your guts for showing their unconcious, as people usually love their own biases more than the truth. That is normal human behaviour.

    Sticking to the article from the author who believes that the Balibombings were mini-nuked: what is also interesting is that the claim that it was a mini-nuke comes from Abu Bakar Bashir himself (see https://www.smh.com.au/world/cia-used-micro-nuclear-bomb-in-bali-bashir-20060830-gdoa4r.html), i.e. the Muslim cleric that was charged (yet never convicted) for organising the Balibombings. – Why would Bashir say something like that? – Don’t know for sure, but do know that it is an interesting veil to take off if you read yourself into the Balibombings. Who did what, said what and what are the possible implications? – I am not saying that you should be the person to do that (may be more sensical if I would di it, but… I am through with the past..) I do believe that it would be an intersting topic and I am quite sure that you will find the Balibombings an interesting topic to study.

    We all have our biases. You say, you do not believe in Blowback. I say, I do believe in Bloeback. You could see that as a scientific hypothesis when you research the Balibombings. We cannot both be right at the same time. Who is right?

    Some other thoughts and suggestions

    1) Blowblack to me is similar as murder out of passion, but then on a grander scale. Murder out of passion happens, though rarely. Blowback should be seen as murder out of passion: it is a crazy thing, and a private thing: it can be prevented by either locking up patients and/or treating them. Bombing countries to prevent Blowback doesn’t work.

    2) If you decide to search into the Balibombings and the motives, you should stick to what the 4 main perpetrators said at the trial. All the rest is dead end road, and (dangerous) nonsense.

    Unfortunately, it seems that the trial recordings are not published (can’t find them on internet), but it was an open trial, which was aired, at the time on tv, and journalists reported on the trial proceedings at the time. This maens that the evidence of what was said at the time is scattered, or is like a puzzle, but can be found. I solved the puzzle for myself by using this scattered information, which is good enough for me, but that is probably not good enough for you…

    It is interesting if you compare for instance Wikipedia with what was actually said at the trial

    Wikipedia says: ‘Ali Ghufron, alias Mukhlas, told police that he was the head of one of Jemaah Islamiyah’s four cells and had ordered the Bali bombings. He also confessed that a fellow leader Riduan Isamuddin, known as Hambali, had provided the funds for the attacks’

    But according to WSWS journalists (who covered the trial recordings): ‘The prosecution cites Mukhlas’s […] confession to police, which included a claim to have met Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan in 1987. But at his first opportunity in court, Mukhlas retracted all statements made to police claiming these had been extracted under torture.’

    https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2003/07/bali-j24.html

    Question: Why would Wikipedia omit this important information from the trial recordings?

    Now there is much more to talk about, but I do not want to ask too much of your time, or from Unz Review by showing things that I can become passionate about… See it as a tip for a possible research project for you or for anyone who is interested. There is much that can be found… Much much more than saying that the Balibombings were a false flag because they used a mini-nuke.

    As for the rest of it, that the bombing was not a mini-nuke is hardly surprising to me. However, the theory that it was some sort of false flag would hardly depend on that.

    The blowback theory of terrorism is not completely impossible and could happen once in a while, I suppose. However, it is not the first theory that I would consider. The people who are so into blowback as an explanation, I think it is invariably because they don’t want to avoid considering the far more likely false flag explanation.

    I agree with most of what you say, but to me nuclear bomb blasts in the basement of WTC1 & 2 have no necessity in order to accomplish this and, more importantly, judging by the way the two building fell (blown-up in sections in a top-down matter)–in stark contrast to WTC7, which was blown from bottom with gravity doing the rest of the work in classical building demo fashion–what would be the need to use nuclear bombs in the basement? The concrete, steel, and other organic material was pulverized section-by-section as their remains where ejected laterally as the towers were coming down. There were certainly ‘conventional’ bombs/explosions in the basements to weaken the structure–as is visually and by way of witness statements proven beyond doubt–, but judging by the way the building progressively fell section-by-section in a top-down fashion there would be no practical reason, nor is there any visual evidence in the way those building fell to suspect the scenario which you describe (i.e. nuclear explosion in the basement of WTC1 & 2). What is your take on the reason/necessity to use basement nuclear bombs? As far as I’m concerned I see none. The long-lasting high temperatures could have alternative explanations.

    Even if you accept the official narrative of planes hitting the towers, the claims by Silverstein that he gave the order to “pull it” on building 7 gives the game away. There really is no doubt after his statement that 911 was an inside job and that he was in on it. No doubt whatsoever.

    I am not into computers, so I don’t know what else to say then what I see from my screen.

    In terms of Blowback: you may be right. One reason I asked you to look into the Balibombings is that I am not sure that my hypothesis holds. It is the best I can come up with. Or am I fooling myself? – You are a great mythbuster, so maybe I have to reconsider that what I hold as true. But don’t feel obliged to look into it.

    I will probably not be able to contact you at your website and am not likely to e-mail you at this stage. But I do want to thank you for this conversation and the time you took for answering me and reading my comments

    I had some additional thoughts which I put down here as a brainstorm.

    ….

    A Research project could look like this

    Question: why are so many people fooled by the who and the why of terrorist attacks?

    Case studies:

    terrorist attack where what was true, was made fake (Balibombings)

    terrorist attack where what was fake was made true (Cologne)

    terrorist attack of which the truth or fake will never be found by design (missing data problem): 911

    If you want to escape the topsy turvy world of terrorist attacks, who did it, why it was done etc, then there are 2 options

    1) Read yourself into it, and withhold judgment until you are absolutely sure what happened. Evidence may only consist of factual evidence (police reports, trial reports) or by well defined counterfactual evidence (thought experiments to test Logic/ normal human behaviour) not by hearsay or prejudice.

    2) Don’t do 1, but withhold judgment completely (Chomsky’s take on 911: ‘who cares’). Only focus on the consequences, like: does 911 justify a surveillance state?

    What so many readers do wrong is that they kind of look into terrorist attacks, and form judgment too soon. After they made their judgment, many find it impossible to reconsider their judgment even if all the evidence points towards that their judgment is wrong (don’t like to call names, but I am sure you remember my fellow countryman that you called ‘old fart’, he is a perfect example of good guy, completely gone nuts by the news). This makes these people easy targets for propaganda who are of no concern at all to those who decide the who, the how, the what and the why in this world. Yet they think they got it all figured out. Their foolishness actually serves the thieving and robbing masters of mankind.

    As an analogy: many readers who made up their mind about terrorist attacks (but only superficially, not thoroughly), consider themselves as watchdogs of our house we call society. But they are watchdogs who are easily distracted the moment the house is robbed by thieves, as the thieves threw some nice juicy meat over the fence before they robbed the house. That juicy meat is ‘terrorist attack’. Soon enough these watchdogs become addicted to their food supply that is being thrown to them every once in a while by thieves (nice and juicy food, that is called ‘terrorist attack’).

    At some stage the owner of the house (e.g. a critical analyst of terrorist attacks like you) starts to become aware that the watchdogs are not doing what they are intended to do. If he exposes the watchdogs for what they do (anything but guarding the house), the watchdogs become angry and turn to the owner! – Which is even better for the thieves who once in a while rob the house.

    Now I don’t know the watchdogs as closely as a psychiatrist knows his patients, but I suspect that many of them wanted to become watchdog out of a feeling of utter hopelessness and loneliness. Being watchdog gives their life meaning. Which is the reason why they act aggresive the moment you tell them that their behaviour is completely useless or worse: counterproductive. You take away their reason for existing.

    This doesn’t mean that you should treat watchdogs with contempt or agressive. Their heart is in the right place, but they are utter fools. The advice I can give (and gave) to such foolishness is

    A) stop being a fool
    B) do something useful or meaningful with your life

    There are many ways a person can become useful or meaningful in society. Becoming an expert in terrorist attacks is only one way (and that way is paved with distractions and traps that can make you crazy, why go that way?). One advice I find useful is: become friends with those people you fear most: for many here that means Muslims or refugees. So go to an asylum center, talk with these people, try to understand their pain, help them with building up a life in your society (give them money, show them how society works, learn them the native language, try to understand their culture which will enrich your life). That, I can tell from experience, is very rewarding, much more rewarding then reading yourself into terrorist attacks.

    Something like that…

    I am not into computers, so I don’t know what else to say then what I see from my screen.

    So you really can’t tell me which browser you’re using… Chrome… Firefox… Internet Explorer… something else… oh well… what can I say?

    [MORE]

    As for the rest of it, the inability of people to see through obvious hoaxes and false flags and such… well, there’s an aspect of all of this that is only very rarely discussed in the so-called “Truther” literature.

    Most “Truther” material (9/11 Truth, JFK Truth, XXX Truth) is focused on making some very nerdy technical case that the official story cannot be true. They often do an extremely good job of that, but it’s not nearly as effective as it ought to be because it doesn’t address the real questions about human psychology.

    What I mean is that there is this desperate to desire to dupe oneself that is so much part of people’s psychology. The most devastating case imaginable for 9/11 Truth, based on facts and logic, can just about never penetrate that.

    I am sure you remember my fellow countryman that you called ‘old fart’, he is a perfect example of good guy, completely gone nuts by the news)

    Yes, I remember that, of course. I even remember his screen name, which is most likely his real name. Jilles Dykstra.

    And yes, he’s probably not such a bad fellow, but I got utterly exasperated with him. To tell the truth, I think that I was patient with him for quite a long time before finally just getting utterly fed up. Some of it was utterly surreal. At one point, he was lecturing me that he knew what happened in Cologne because he lives in Holland and Holland has a border with Germany. That’s like saying you know what happened on 9/11 because you live in Connecticut or some place not so far away. But, aside from that, and other similar nonsense, the real core problem with this guy is that he just did not understand that repeating a story cannot constitute proof of said story. To be absolutely fair, he is far from alone. Most people don’t seem to understand that.

    But what is the point of being well-read and knowing multiple languages and so on if you don’t understand that telling a story does not constitute proof of the story! Well, that guy must just read a set of very far-right publications and just believe it all. There are a lot of people on this site like that.

    “What is your take on the reason/necessity to use basement nuclear bombs? “

    Thanks for your courteous reply. Please believe that I have an open mind about how 9/11 was practically executed: the collapse of WTC7 makes it totally obvious that controlled demolition was utilised, so all the rest are just details.

    When the planning application was made for the construction of the WTC towers, the architects and civil designers had to provide a detailed means of demolishing them once the constructions become obsolete (a building’s lifetime is typically 100 years maximum). It sounds crazy today, but in the 60’s, it was completely normal and fashionable to use nuclear explosions for non-military purposes: civil works, fracking, creating a new Panama Canal, you name it ..
    Between them, the USA and USSR carried out at least respectfully 27 and 127 Peaceful Nuclear Explosions (PNE’s) between 1957 to 1989:

    http://www.world-nuclear.org/information-library/non-power-nuclear-applications/industry/peaceful-nuclear-explosions.aspx

    Please bear in mind that there is nothing comparable to a nuclear explosion in equivalent kilotons.
    The reason why the 9/11 masterminds had to use nuclear bombs is because if this is what the designers had previously calculated as necessary to demolish the towers, then using any weaker explosive would have risked resulting in partially demolished buildings with lots of forensic evidence of controlled demolition. In other terms, the demolition had to be right first -time, so they could not deviate from the design.

    Now regarding the evidence that nuclear explosives were used, they are evident to somebody with a physics background because of at least 3 physical manifestations that cannot be explained by any other cause:

    – 1-Temperatures generating molten steel for over 3 months: it is just impossible to obtain such effect, in the open air, for such duration, unless adding fuel. The comparatively tiny WTC was cooling down by transmitting heat by radiation, convection and conduction to the infinite and much colder atmosphere surrounding it. This process would never have taken 3 months . Unless there was a massive amount of heat trapped underground and slowly dissipating mostly by conduction.

    -2- The seismic shock recorded by several witnesses standing in different locations, that took place before the South Tower’s perfectly-timed collapse. The time gap between the seismic shock and the collapse was identical on all videos. This is due to the well-established phenomenology of underground nuclear explosions: the blast first causes a cavity, which roof collapses only after a few minutes (in hard/granitic terrain).
    Again, the several minutes-gap between the ground shaking and the tower collapsing can correspond only to a nuclear underground explosion.

    -3- The volcanic aspect of the WTC foundations remaining once they had been cleared. There never was volcanos in this geographical area. The only possible explanation is an explosion powerful enough to melt the bedrock. An A bomb only can do that.

    The idea that nuclear bombs were used to kill innocent people is revolting, scary, desperating, but it is most likely what actually happened . I can provide many sources of information if you want to research the subject further. Kind regards.

    By dwelling “undocumentedly” or more correctly put, illegally, in the USA, the persons in question are already committing a crime, aren’t they? And then it is fully correct to call them “criminals”.

    Conclusion: Illegal immigrants commit at least one more crime than the rest. Per definition.

    Unless…

    Unless we all agree that we’ll follow only those laws and regulations we personally fancy. Do we?

    “Again, the several minutes-gap between the ground shaking and the tower collapsing can correspond only to a nuclear underground explosion.”

    Correction: the time gap was, if I remember correctly, exactly 12 seconds in the case of the South Tower. It is not a constant parameter: it increases with ground’s hardness, depth of the explosion chamber, etc..

    Thank you for that reply. I am not convinced thus far, but do, if you would like, provide additional material so that I can study it and take it into consideration. If what you provide has any merit to what you claim I will notify you in future postings as such.

    The Bali crater was from an Israeli mini-nuke.

    Following your link, one finds another: Bali got nuked. On that page, we are told that there was no radiation detected, but never mind, that is because they used alpha radiation. That is nonsense. An exploding plutonium bomb, as claimed in the article, mini or not, would produce plenty of highly radioactive fission products that would not escape detection. No radioactivity, no nuclear blast. End of story.

    Crime stats are readily available. Many whites are murdered by blacks everyday

    Roughly 5 whites are murdered by blacks everyweek!
