WAR ON SYRIA; Rumors Of Chemical Weapons Attack On Israel By NATO’s Syrian Rebels To Blame Assad & Justify Intervention, ‘FALSE FLAG’ WARNING
(AE) – I’ve been planning on writing an article warning that the current situation in Syria is incredibly ‘ripe’ for some sort of provocation in order to rally US Congress, and NATO countries, to justify the unprovoked bombing of Syria, which has been under foreign invasion by NATO’s terrorist mercenaries for over two years.
An attack on innocent little Israel would perfectly fit the bill… either way, SOMETHING is going happen, very soon, to justify NATO’s unstoppable goal of… REGIME CHANGE

Matthew Aaron Llaneza Charged in Bomb Plot, Wanted to Frame Anti Goverment Right Wing Groups
Federal agents arrested 28-year-old California native Matthew Aaron Llaneza on Friday after he allegedly attempted to detonate what he thought was a car bomb outside a Bank of America in Oakland, according to the FBI. Llaneza, a Taliban sympathizer, plotted to blame the attack on right-wing, anti-government groups in a bid to incite a “civil war.”
“Llaneza’s arrest was the culmination of an undercover operation during which he was closely monitored by the FBI’s South Bay Joint Terrorism Task Force. Unbeknownst to Llaneza, the explosive device that he allegedly attempted to use had been rendered inoperable by law enforcement and posed no threat to the public. Llaneza was charged this morning by criminal complaint with attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction against property used in an activity that affects interstate or foreign commerce,” according to an FBI press release.
Prior to his arrest, Llaneza met with a man he thought was connected with the Taliban and the mujahidin in Afghanistan — though he was actually an undercover FBI agent. The terrorist suspect suggested carrying out an attack against a bank in the San Francisco Bay Area using a car bomb. He planned to carry out the false flag attack and make it appear as if “the responsible party was an umbrella organization for a loose collection of anti-government militias and their sympathizers.”
“Llaneza’s stated goal was to trigger a governmental crackdown, which he expected would trigger a right-wing counter-response against the government followed by, he hoped, civil war,” the FBI release states.
(* Josh Tolly in this you tube keeps calling the suspect Adam Lanaza – which would be weird… His name is: Matthew Llaneza )
We are always leery of these “drills” as several of them in the past either went LIVE, or were used for cover in an adjacent false flag attack.
CHICAGO (CBS) — A school shooting drill planned for tomorrow in the far northwestern suburbs has many parents upset.
According to a letter from Cary-Grove High School principal Jay Sargeant, there will be a code red drill at the school on Wednesday.
It will include somebody shooting blanks from a gun in the hallway “in an effort to provide our teachers and students some familiarity with the sound of gunfire.”
CBS 2’s Derrick Blakley reports, during the drill, teachers will keep students in their rooms, lock their doors, and draw their curtains. Police will sweep the building, while someone will fire two shots – blanks – from a starter pistol.
Cary Police Chief Steven Casstevens said, “From the school’s request, they want to let the students know what the sound of gunshot might be, should that occur in their school.”
But any gunfire at a school – even blanks – had some parents and students shaking their heads.
Parent Kassy Pinter said, “It’s probably necessary to have the ‘code red’ drill, but not really necessary to shoot the blanks in the hallway.”
Parent Sharon Miller said the way Cary Grove has planned the code red drill is absurd and also thinks it’s not necessary to shoot blanks in the hallway.
“If you need to run a drill, you run a drill,” she told WBBM Newsradio’s Bernie Tafoya. “They run fire drills all the time, but they don’t run up and down the hallway with a flamethrower.”
Parents were also concerned about some students getting too upset during the exercise.
Pinter and Miller both also pointed out that not all guns sound alike, ranging from a light popping sound to a loud bang.
The parents were also concerned about the notification letter from the school. Pinter said she did not receive it in her email. Miller said she’s the only one of the parents she knows who has received it.
Some in the school community endorse the idea.
Substitute teacher Debbie Gummerson said, “Let’s put the kids through some training, and maybe we could save some lives that way, should something ever happen.”
Parent Dina Coutre said, “Nowadays it’s better to be safe than sorry.”
School spokesman Jeff Puma said the small number of parents who have contacted the school are evenly split for and against the drill. He said another notification will be going out today, and teachers will discuss the drill plans with students during classes.
Puma said the school has worked closely with the Cary Police Department on the drill plans.
“It was their recommendation that we do this in order to create the knowledge necessary to keep our students safe in an active crisis situation,” Puma said.
Pinter and Miller also said they don’t like the way police recommend students to be “sitting ducks” in their classrooms if there’s a shooter in their school.
They said they’d always taught their children to find a way out of the school if they’re not near where the shooting is going on–to run out a door or climb out a window.
Puma said, “I don’t believe there would be any school that would tell you to do that, and that’s coming from police and emergency management officials.”
Last year, Community High School District 155 also used simulated gunshots at another emergency drill at Crystal Lake South High School, but only faculty and staff were present, not students.
The full email:
At Cary-Grove and across District 155, we make your child’s safety our number one priority each day. As a parent, I can assure you that we understand our responsibility to return your child safely at the end of each day. While we take many preventative steps to keep our building secure, we also practice our response should a crisis arise. Some examples include meetings with first responders, a comprehensive crisis response plan, and simulations. We are planning a code red simulation on Wednesday, January 30. We feel it is important to explain the simulation to you in advance so that you and your child might be able to better understand what will take place on Wednesday.
The simulation will take approximately 15-20 minutes, during which time teachers will secure their rooms, draw curtains, and keep their students from traveling throughout the building. Please note that we will be firing blanks in the hallway in an effort to provide our teachers and students some familiarity with the sound of gunfire. Our school resource officer and other members of the Cary Police Department will assist us in sweeping the building to ensure that all students are in a secure location during the drill. At the conclusion of the drill, we will take some time to process what occurred and then we will return to our normal classroom routine.
I encourage you to discuss the drill with your student both before it happens and after. These drills help our students and staff to be prepared should a crisis occur, but it may cause some students to have an emotional reaction. In those cases, your voice may provide reassurances of the drill’s importance. Additionally, we have trained social workers on staff who can speak directly with your child should he or she need added support.
Should you have any questions, please contact me or any member of the Cary-Grove’s administrative team. Together, we can keep our school a safe place for your child to learn and grow.
English-speaking jihadis seen in Mali, as a Canadian is reported to have co-ordinated Algeria attack
Canada is investigating an allegation by the Algerian Prime Minister that one of its citizens co-ordinated the terror raid at the Saharan gas plant in which dozens of hostages were killed.
Westerners, including a man with blond hair and blue eyes, are believed to have been among the Islamist militants who launched last week’s attack on the Tigantourine complex near Algeria’s border with Libya.
A French jihadist, previously unknown to authorities, and two Canadians are suspected to have been involved in the hostage-taking, and reports also claim that a man with a Western accent was among the extremists who lured terrified gas workers from their rooms during the hostage crisis.
Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal told reporters that a man, judged “by his English accent” to have been Canadian, was among the 32 Islamists whose raid on the Algerian refinery prompted a global crisis. One of the Canadians, identified only as “Shaddad”, is alleged to have played a leading role in the attack which left 58 hostages – including 37 Westerners – dead after a four-day battle with Algerian forces. Five further Western workers are still unaccounted for. “A Canadian was among the militants,” Mr Sellal said. “He was co-ordinating the attack.”
The militant group also included men from Tunisia, Egypt, Mauritania and Niger, Mr Sellal said. At least 29 Islamists from eight nationalities were killed in the operation to end the siege, with the remaining three captured alive. The make up of the attacking group – an al-Qa’ida splinter brigade who call themselves “Those Who Signed in Blood” – will be carefully examined as security experts try to assess the scale of the terror threat across North and West Africa.
Concern at the international composition of the Algerian kidnap brigade will be compounded by reports from residents in Diabaly, Mali, that Islamists who overran the town last week contained English-speakers and militants of European appearance. Speaking to The Independent yesterday after French and Malian forces had retaken the town, student Amadu Dumbia said: “I definitely heard them and there’s no chance that I made a mistake with another language. They spoke like they were from England, but had darker skins.”
Mokhtar Belmokhtar, the leader of the group who is suspected of masterminding the gas plant attack from outside Algeria, yesterday warned that there would be more attacks on those participating in the military campaign in neighbouring Mali. In a statement to a radio station in Mauritania, which received regular communications from the militants during the In Amenas plant siege, the Algerian-born militant said: “We warn all the states who took part in the Crusader campaign against the Azwad region [northern Mali] that if they do not retreat from their decision there will be more operations.”
He also insisted that the brigade which undertook the attack was not local, saying “only five Algerians” took part in the attack and “none of them were locals from the city”.
Prime Minister David Cameron today told the Commons that the West faced a “generational struggle” in combating the “poisonous ideology” of Islamic extremists in the Sahel. Mr Cameron said that Britain would join the manhunt for Belmokhtar and promised extra support for the French campaign in Mali. Echoing the language used by Tony Blair in the aftermath of the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Centre, he said: “This is the work our generation faces and we must demonstrate the same resolve and sense of purpose as previous generations have with the challenges that they faced in this House and in this country.”
A spokeswoman for Canada’s Foreign Affairs Ministry yesterday said that they were still seeking clarity on a possible Canadian connection to the raid. “We are in close contact with Algerian authorities, but nothing [has been] confirmed yet,” Chrystiane Roy told Canada’s Globe and Mail newspaper.
The Algerian authorities have declined to confirm whether the alleged Canadian co-ordinator was among the 29 militants who died.
One of the hostage takers was a North American who took part in the killing of numerous Japanese workers, the AFP agency reported. An Algerian employee of a Japanese engineering firm working at the site, identified as Riad said the Islamist attackers shot three Japanese who were in a bus, then went straight to the rooms occupied by the Japanese.
“One terrorist shouted ‘Open the door’ with a North American accent, then fired,” he told AFP. “Two other Japanese died and we found four other Japanese bodies inside the base.”
One of the kidnappers was tall, blond with blue or green eyes and spoke English, an Algerian military source told the Norwegian daily Aftenposten. Norway’s Statoil energy company was one of the two foreign firms operating at the gas complex.

From terror attacks in Italy and Belgium, to the assassination of the Italian Prime Minister Aldo Moro in 1978, Operation Gladio, the stand behind army in the event of the invasion of Europe by the Soviets, actually resulted in a widespread campaign of terror.
According to numerous experts on the operation, Gladio was infiltrated by the CIA and NATO, turned into a terrorist organization, and subsequently used as a political weapon to force Europeans into voting for establishment politicians throughout the use of terrorist acts to create a narrative of fear.
“One of P-2’s specialties was the art of provocation. Leftist organizations like the Red Brigades were infiltrated, financed and / or created, and the resulting acts of terrorism, like the assassination of Italy’s premier in 1978 and the bombing of the railway station in Bologna in 1980, were blamed on the left.
The goal of this ’strategy of tension’ was to convince Italian voters that the left was violent and dangerous-by helping make it so,” wrote Mark Zepezauer.
During a recent interview by author Richard Cottrell, these facts were brought to light with Cottrell making the startling statement that Gladio has NOT ended as previously claimed.
Tonight we are going to take a look at the role of Central Intelligence Agency in sponsoring false flag operations, in particular we will be examining Operation Gladio, a cold war black opera orchestrated by the CIA who launched terrorist attacks in Italy and throughout Europe in order to blame leftist communists.
The chosen targets were usually public places in order to create maximum impact.
Bombs were planted in banks and railway stations and trains. Snipers fired at will into innocent crowds of peaceful protesters or weekend shoppers simply out buying groceries.
It was a slaughter of the innocents, and the United States, working through the CIA and secret war departments of NATO, carried out a long series of false flag attacks throughout the European continent to meet its own political ends. “
If Operation Gladio has never ended then all terror attacks throughout Europe and even those in the United States, should be looked out with a highly suspicious eye.
“Gladio is active alive, working, and plotting to this day.
It is behind terrorist atrocities which have been performed in Europe not just 20 30 40 years ago but which have been performed within shall we say minutes in the historic record.
This is the important thing to remember, all the time we keep talking about Gladio as something that happened in the past, it was a long time ago maybe we should bury now…
Its not, this is an organization or idea or brand or trademark which is so useful you cannot put it away.“
Using facts gained through investigation into Operation Gladio and then fast forwarding to the present, one must wonder if these same elements within the US government are once again carrying out false flag attacks on innocent civilians (including Americans) to further push their political goals. (disarming the American people among other tyrannical plans)
As investigations into both the Colorado Batman movie shooting and the Sandy Hook Shooting have shown, many different attacks within American have had all the hallmarks of a false flag operation and, among numerous other operations and false flag plans that have become public, Operation Gladio shows that elements of our government have in the past carried out false flag terror attacks.
For instance, when you take an independent minded look at the details revolving around the Sandy Hook Shooting a series of startling facts comes to light.
Once again a government-funded mock emergency drill was being conducted at a nearby local school at the very same time the supposed realtime shooting was taking place at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut – leaving all the fingerprints of a government staged false flag event to strip guns from the American people.
Many people involved in responding to the Newtown school shooting have been shown to be participants in active shooter drills either in the past or on the very day of the shooting. To top it all off, there are still many inconsistencies in the official story.
One of the noticeable problems with the official story is that alleged shooting suspect Adam Lanza’s car was identified as a black Honda Civic, Connecticut plate number 872 YEO which is registered to a one Christopher A Rodia (born August 1969), totally discrediting the official story.
An excerpt from a local publication details the fact that an active-shooter drill was indeed taking place during the actual event known as the Newtown or Sandy Hook Schools Shooting, thus signifying all of the classic signs of a false flag operation.
Fast forwarding to the present, we have seen a large-scale media attack on the 2nd Amendment and now, in a startling turn of events, elements of the corporate media are literally attacking those who question the shooting.
When you consider the fact that the corporate media has absolutely been complicit in the Sandy Hook Shooting, it makes sense that they would send an elitist Vanderbilt (Anderson Cooper) to broadcast one of the most hardcore segments of shilling the corporate media has ever conducted.
The above facts are merely a small fraction of the startling details that have come to light in regards to the Sandy Hook Shooting as well as the horrific Colorado theater shooting.
So, with the knowledge of Operation Gladio and the details surrounding numerous attacks within the US, is it possible that elements of the current United States government are involved in black ops staged terror as we speak?
Towards the end of the interview with Infowars Nightly News, Cottrell was asked if he thought attacks of the sort carried out under the auspice of Operation Gladio were a possibility in America.
Do you think they are barbaric enough to kill innocent children as an excuse to attack our 2nd Amendment?
To that end, his stern and straight forward yes reply should open the eyes of free thinking citizens throughout the world.
OPERATION GLADIO (aka P2OG) – Remembering Govt Sponsored Public Shootings (to frame and catch bad guys)
In case this gets lost down a memory hole…. here is some info that definitively relates to the rash of public shootings in the USA. If you are talking to people about Aurora Co, and Newtown CT being potential “False Flag” attacks, and they think you’ve lost your marbles…. direct them here! Its been done before!
Operation Gladio, a decades-long covert campaign of terrorism and deceit 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 and offices — which were then blamed on “leftist subversives” or other political opponents. The purpose, as stated above in sworn testimony by Gladio agent Vincenzo Vinciguerra, was to demonize designated enemies and frighten the public into supporting ever-increasing powers for government leaders — and their elitist cronies.
QUOTED BY AN OPERATION GLADIO OPERATIVE UNDER SWORN TESTIMONY:
“‘You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple: to force … the public to turn to the state to ask for greater security.”

What is the “Shock Doctrine”?
WAR ON SYRIA; Kucinich, US ‘Immeasurably’ Closer To War In Syria, Obama Deployed Troops To Jordan ‘Without Notifying Congress’; WARNS OF FALSE FLAG?
“All it takes is a single incident…” – Dennis Kucinich
My guess is a chemical weapons “incident” will be used to justify a “humanitarian intervention” in Syria, which will allow NATO to implement their much desired “No Fly Zone”, and that inevitably leads to… NATO “love bombs”.
Ohio Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich believes the deployment of American troops in Jordan — which was announced Wednesday — brings the United States “immeasurably” closer to being dragged into the civil war in Syria.
“I can see in a moment how it happens: we’re a few dozen miles from the Syrian border and all of a sudden we are within the reach of physical danger. All it takes is a single incident,” Kucinich said in a phone interview with U.S. News.
The Ohio congressman complained that the commander-in-chief sent the troops to Jordan “without notifying Congress.” Ironically, Kucinich noted, the Obama administration announced the deployment exactly ten years after the House of Representatives authorized President George W. Bush to invade Iraq.
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta disclosed on Wednesday that over 100 American troops had been sent to near the Jordanian border with Syria.
“As we’ve said before, we have been planning for various contingencies, both unilaterally and with our regional partners,” explained Pentagon spokesman George Little in a statement reported by The Associated Press.
The AP reports that the U.S. troops will be working on “increased cooperation and more detailed planning” in response to the Syrian conflict.
Kucinich, however, doesn’t see the necessity of sending troops. “Putting U.S. troops on that border draws the U.S. much closer to war in Syria, which is a nightmare already and can be more of a nightmare for our country,” he said. “The talk of stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons … that’s an argument for making an effort to try to lessen the violence, not intensify it.”
“There’s a trail of causality here,” Kucinich added. “Once you position U.S troops on the border of a conflict area, it immeasurably increases the possibility of the U.S. getting drawn into the conflict — because we’re there.”
2012.10.10 Kucinich; US ‘Immeasurably’ Closer To War In Syria By Steven Nelson (usnews.com):
The news is out but bears repeating. New reports confirm it. It shouldn’t surprise. It’s one of the oldest stunts around. Attacks launched are blamed on victims. Wars follow. More on Turkey’s false flag below.
Sinking the Lusitania in May 1915 preceded America’s April 1917 WW I entry. The 1933 Reichstag fire helped Hitler assume dictatorial powers.
On August 31, 1939, Nazis impersonating Poles attacked a Gleiwitz radio station. It was on the border between the two countries. WW II followed.
Roosevelt manipulated the Japanese to attack Pearl Harbor. It gave him the war he wanted. Japan’s fleet was tracked across the Pacific. Pearl Harbor’s Admiral HE Kimmel wasn’t warned. Casualties were needed to turn pacifist Americans into raving Japan haters and get congressional support.
Numerous other false flags followed. The August 1964 Gulf of Tonkin incident is well-known. Over a decade of war followed. For suffering Vietnamese it never ended.
In August 1990, Washington colluded with Kuwait’s al-Sabah monarchy. Saddam was entrapped to invade. In January 1991, the Gulf War began. Genocidal sanctions, more war, occupation, and destruction of the “cradle of civilization” followed.
September 11, 2001 was the Big Lie of our time. Virtually everything about the official story was falsified. Most Americans still believe it. Wars on humanity rage out-of-control. Millions of corpses attest to Washington’s viciousness.
False flags are an American tradition. Big Lies launch wars. Official accounts are fake. Propaganda works that way. Turkey’s ruling government is a Washington tool. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is a useful stooge. So are top officials around him.
They threaten world peace and their own people. On October 6, Hurriyet Daily News headlined “Turkey not far away from war: Erdogan.”
On October 5, he said:
“We are not war-lovers, but we are not far from war either….I am calling once more on the al-Assad regime and its supporters: Don’t dare to test Turkey’s patience.”
“We are not bluffing and we will follow this incident closely. God willing, the Syrian people would soon be saved from this cruelty and governed by an administration that guarantees the rights of all parties.”
He referred to the alleged Syrian mortar attack. Five Turkish nationals were killed. What he omitted says more than he revealed. Early reports suggested perhaps a stray Syrian mortar accidentally struck Turkish territory.
On October 6, Reuters and other news services reported more mortars from Syrian territory landing in Turkish territory. For four consecutive days, Turkish artillery shelled in response.
Erdogan is Washington’s lead regional belligerent. Smell a rat about what’s going on because there is one.
On October 6, the Syrian National News Agency (SANA) headlined “Yurt Newspaper: Erdogan’s Government Handed over the Mortars to Armed (Free Syrian Army) Groups in Syria which Shelled Akcakale Town.”
Yurt is a Turkish newspaper. Contributor Ali Sirmen reported what’s going on. He said Erdogan is acting on Washington’s behalf. He’s complicit in war crimes.
“The Newspaper also revealed that the bomber which was used to launch the mortar on the Turkish Akcakale town is only used by NATO.”
Editor-in Chief Merdan Yanardag explained more. He claimed he had information from a reliable source. He said “Turkey was the side which sent the mortars to the members of the so-called” Free Syrian Army.
This information “affirms that the Government of Erdogan’s wrong policy was behind the falling of the mortar in the town that claimed the lives of 5 Turks.”
Hamsayeh.Net (Iran & International News Online) reported the same story. On October 6, it also headlined “Turkey Attempts to Trigger a NATO-led War on Syria, saying:
Turkey is one of 28 NATO countries. It’s very much part of Washington’s imperial wars. In 2011, it helped wage war on Libya. It’s doing it now on Syria.
Even The New York Times admitted that it’s unknown who’s responsible for mortars landing in Turkey. Ankara’s knee-jerk response was scripted in Washington. False flag planning originated there.
Obama officials orchestrated the whole show. Ousting Assad was planned years ago. Only its timing remained to be determined. It arrived and continues daily. Turkey’s false flag suggests full-scale intervention perhaps looms.
Whether it precedes or follows US elections doesn’t matter. It’s likely coming. Perhaps Libya 2.0 is planned. NATO already is involved. Lead belligerents include America, Britain, France, and Turkey.
On October 6, Press TV headlined “Syrian army kills dozens of insurgents including four Turks,” saying:
Syria reported four Turkish nationals were killed in Aleppo. It’s not clear whether or not they were combatants. Perhaps more information will clarify.
In March 2012, Syrian forces captured 13 French officers. They were caught redhanded with FSA fighters. At the time, France’s foreign ministry dismissed the report. Lying is official policy.
On October 4, Syria News headlined “Turkey: Syrian rebels have taken responsibility for attack on Turkish village?!” saying:
Germany’s ZDF television reported the news. It said:
“Rockets and Mortar Fire – Turkey exacts vengeance for an attack from the Syrian side which took place yesterday afternoon. For weeks, Ankara has warned for any provocation in direction to Turkey. Until late at night, the fighting has taken place. Meanwhile, Syrian rebels have taken responsibility for this provocation.”
Another ZDF program called “Heute in Europa” reported the same story, saying:
“Yesterday night, Turkey took revenge for attacks from REBELS in Syria that have previously attacked a Turkish border village.”
Mortars were launched from territory controlled by FSA fighters. A leaked video clip said they admitted responsibility for striking Akcakale and killing five Turkish nationals.
On October 6, Mossad-connected DEBKAfile headlined “Syrian soldiers told to stay 10km from Turkish border, forming buffer zone.”
They were ordered out of artillery range. “Turkey had begun clearing a 10 km deep strip on the Syrian border” to facilitate FSA movement. The London Guardian reported the same thing.
Clearly the ball advanced closer to war. False flag provocations make it more likely.
On October 6, Voice of Russia‘s Roman Mamonov headlined “Turkey Effectively Declares War Against Syria,” saying:
Ankara preparations are underway. Parliamentary authorization was approved. Institute of Strategic Estimates expert Azhdar Kurtov said:
“Declarations made by the Turkish leadership speak for themselves. This is not just militant rhetoric but an order to the armed forces, in case of an emergency, to cross the border and carry out military activities on Syrian territory. What is this if not a war?”
“Though, certainly, Turkish commanders and politicians will think twice before starting an invasion. In my opinion, they will carry out a massive probing, just like towards another neighboring country, Iraq. The Turkish armed forces supported by their air force are quite capable of carrying out local hostilities on Syrian territory.”
Damascus understands the situation. It’s doing what it can to cool tensions. It’s impossible when foreign militants launch cross-border attacks from its territory on Turkey.
It’s a setup, a provocative false flag. At the same time, Syria’s army is strong and able to retaliate. Turkey is playing with fire. Full-scale war assures all sides lose.
What’s coming remains to unfold. Heightened tensions suggest the worst. It’s hard imagining why Erdogan and top officials around him would risk so much for so little. Serious internal opposition exists for good reason. Whether it can stop him remains unknown.
