This opinion piece will contain speculation or “conspiracy theory,” and so you can move on if you don’t like that sort of thing…

I’m not claiming that Iran fired any missiles at the Ukrainian passenger plane; that’s the New York Times and Bellingcat. But, assuming their video shows unaltered footage of Iranian anti-aircraft SAMs shooting down Ukraine Flight 752, then we must ask the obvious question: WHY?

The very first possible reason screams out, and that is that Iran must have thought it was an attacking warplane over Tehran, and with only moments to decide, they shot quickly. But, why would the Iranian military think that a civilian plane was an attacking warplane? That is the big question in this possible scenario, and it represents a major threat to civil aviation worldwide.

Other civilian airliners around the Middle East have been put at risk recently in the following way. In December, 2018, Russia accused Israel of using civilian airliners as cover for their attacking warplanes:

“The provocative actions of the Israeli air force … directly threatened two airliners,” Russian defence ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said in a statement.

In another incident, Israeli planes attacked Syrian ground targets in a way that the Russians said caused Syria’s air defense missiles to strike a Russian surveillance plane that was in the same area. This air defense response killed fifteen Russian airmen.

“The [Russian] spokesman accused Israeli pilots of “using the Russian airplane as a cover”, putting it “in the line of fire coming from Syrian air defence systems”.

These two precedents establish that military strategists are always looking for ways to game the enemy into using his anti-aircraft missiles against him, so to speak. Getting the enemy to shoot down the wrong plane is a standard military ploy, and perhaps a war crime.

Civilian planes are identified by their radio signatures. They continually broadcast data identifying them as friendly, or, in the case of military aircraft, they can turn off transponder signals and be unknown—giving away as little information to the enemy as possible.

Radio jamming has been around since the second World War. It is not impossible that the Ukraine jet was targeted for some sort of radio jamming in order to confuse the Iranians into thinking it was an attacking enemy warplane and quickly shooting it down. The incident would clearly be blamed on Iran alone, as the “conspiracy theory” is nearly impossible to prove, and the Iranians aren’t going to admit to shooting missiles at all, just as they have denied the use of missiles ever since the incident occurred.

This scenario seems plausible enough. While pundits allude to Iran making a “mistake,” this absolves any conspirators who may have engaged in deliberate radio jamming in order to bait the Iranians into shooting down the wrong plane. The propaganda value of casting the Iranians as monsters, and also angering Ukrainians, Canadians, and other nations which had civilians on board, are clear motives to inspire such a crime.

Lastly, it makes no sense that Iran would warn the US about its missile launches hours in advance in order to avoid casualties, while deliberately shooting down a plane load of innocent civilians on the same day.

False-Flag-3

 

Random guy is filming the black sky where the missile launches. No explanation. No suspicion from the Times. We are in the Idiocracy now.

NY Times and US intelligence are spinning the events with no investigation at all as to exactly where the missile was fired from and who are these people who just happen to be filming this unexpected event in the night sky.

 

PS. Guess Who?

Now you know it’s a false flag. This is all Eliot Higgins and co. do…

US gov narrative blaming Iran for oil tanker attacks falls apart in hours

The Trump administration’s claims Iran attacked oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman were quickly debunked, with the ship’s crew saying it “was hit by a flying object.” But the US disrupted important Iranian diplomatic efforts at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization

It looks like the US is peddling a video of alleged mines being removed by alleged Iranians on a ship they claim is the one that was attacked. Three areas to investigate. Also–the video shows men REMOVING objects, not placing them in the first place. That’s four issues to investigate.

Dutch safety board, BUK missile-maker Almaz-Antey release reports on MH17 crash LIVE UPDATES
PS

More confirmation that the Dutch investigation is rigged:

12:29 GMT

The Dutch Safety Board will study the results of two experiments presented by BUK manufacturer Almaz-Antey.”

They didn’t agree to look at the missile manufacturer’s vast amount of data until TODAY, over a year after the incident. Previous attempts to submit data to the Dutch investigation were rebuffed. The Dutch are also trying to call today’s presentation a “final” report. How can it be “final” if they never looked at the actual arms manufacturer’s data and experiments?

Some actual tests:

PPS

Buk missile systems are part of the Ukrainian arsenal (for decades), a fact omitted in almost all western news coverage. There are several models and they have serial number which could identify the source. This has not been recovered.

The BUK-M1 air defense missile system is deployed with the armed forces of Ukraine and a number of other countries.

The “BUK” Ground Force Air Defense System

When the plane was shot down the Ukrainian armed forces attacked the site of the crash and kept investigators from approaching the evidence for several months. They repeatedly shelled the crash site, not exactly cooperative. It also shows that they were present in the area the whole time.

PPPS

Dutch presentation angry at Ukraine for using airspace over the war, but pushing incompetence rather than premeditation:

bbc-censored-Ukraine-fraud-mh17

no-buk-censored-bbc

BBC deleted this report where residents dispute the Ukraine coup (Nazi) government’s version of events.

RT pulled it back from the memory hole…

This blatant BBC censorship is another highly problematic issue in and of itself.

  • Fighter Jet seen with MH17
  • No BUK missile unit witnessed where Ukrainian intelligence (sic) claims
  • No trace of missile fired
  • Frudulent video shows missile launcher convoy in town controlled by Ukraine military, not rebels

BBC now completely discredited for hiding this information from the world.

MH 17 flight paths_0

 

The preponderance of evidence to date shows that the Kiev Nazi regime ordered the Malaysian plane to head north over the hot war zone so that it could shoot down the plane, sacrifice the passengers and crew, and then blame their opponents for the atrocity.

The Kiev regime is hiding the air traffic control recordings. They have been caught lying on multiple occasions and fabricating false flag terrorism on other occasions. The White House has aided and abetted these fascist murderers in Kiev, and there is all the reason to believe that the CIA is involved with these actions in order to demonize Putin and Russia. They have been demonizing Russia for about a century, if you haven’t noticed. This is a continuum, an ongoing policy of imperial aggression against rivals like Russia and China. Dead civilians are a quick and easy way to sell the policies they wish to enact.

It was Putin’s missile?

Pepe Escobar, Asia Times reporter, has been investigating anomalies related to the downed Malaysian airliner…

“A simple search reveals that MH17 was in fact diverted 200km north from the usual flight path taken by Malaysian Airlines in the previous days — and plunged right in the middle of a war zone. Why? What sort of communication had MH17 received from the Kiev air control tower?

Kiev has been mute about it. Yet the answer would be simple, had Kiev released the Air Traffic Control recording of the tower talking to flight MH17; Malaysia did it after flight MH370 disappeared forever.

It won’t happen; SBU security confiscated it. So much for getting an undoctored explanation as to why MH17 was off its path, and what the pilots saw and said before the explosion.

The Russian Defense Ministry, for its part, has confirmed that a Kiev-controlled Buk anti-aircraft missile battery was operational near the MH17’s crash. Kiev has deployed several batteries of Buk surface-to-air missile systems with at least 27 launchers; these are all perfectly capable of bringing down jets flying at 33,000 ft.”

Then there’s an alleged air traffic controller / witness named “Carlos,” that you’ll want to investigate.

“FUD (Fear Uncertainty Doubt) is generally a strategic attempt to influence perception by disseminating negative and dubious or false information.”
-Wikipedia

I gave up knocking heads with disinfobots concerning the 9/11 attacks back in 2009. It was after I read this, and it finally appeared hopeless. Barack Obama, the stuffed suit who could speak for hours and say exactly nothing, would continue the September 11th cover-up. The 9/11 Commission, which the two chairmen admitted was “set up to fail,” and was largely based on testimony extracted through torture in secret dungeons, was to be taken at face value by Obama’s Administration. Obama also went to great lengths to protect the CIA torturers and to persecute CIA whistleblowers like John Kiriakou.

It was by then a nightmarish media environment. Most so-called “alternative” press wouldn’t listen to actual, substantial complaints with corroborated evidence of government malfeasance and lying about 9/11. Accusing the government of criminal activity made one a “conspiracy theorist” by definition, even if the crimes were true. “Conspiracy theorist” describes every police investigator in the world; that’s what they do. Intelligent writers who pushed to discredit the government’s treasonous 9/11 cover-up were ignored.

“Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”
-US Constitution

The Bush White House committed Treason the moment they shielded the Saudi Arabian government from accountability, after the Saudis were caught giving material aid to the San Diego hijacker cell. This protection of the Saudi regime was, and remains, “Aid and Comfort,” as per the US Constitution.

By 2009, the 9/11 “Truth” Movement was so inundated with disinformation that it had become a laughingstock. The easily-discredited claims (lies) contaminated the greater issue and soiled dissenters across the board. “Turd blossom” was a Karl Rove phrase that could describe what the movement had devolved into. The media, whether corporate or foundation-funded, could find people ranting about “the Jews” or the Illuminati, the Lizard People, the missiles, holograms, mini-nukes or space beam weapons vaporizing the Twin Towers.

Many trolls, and some public personalities, appeared to be professional disinformation artists hard at work concocting and posting this crap online, which others repeated to their own detriment. One cannot easily prove that a specific person is a paid shill, a disinformation agent, a cyber agent provocateur, but be assured they are out there, and “out there.”

DISINFORMATION TO DISCREDIT

Author Thomas Pynchon wrote, “If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don’t have to worry about answers.” I’ll go one better and in the process explain modern cyber disinformation: If they can get you asking stupid questions, then their lapdog media can dismiss you as a “nut.”

That’s how it works, people. Well beyond questions, they have long lassoed a whole generation of newbies into reposting pseudo evidence about the 9/11 attacks, as if these were established facts. That’s FUD, using bogus evidence to taint those who choose to pass it on.

“A honey pot, in intelligence jargon, is a tempting source of information or ‘dangle’ that is set out to lure intended victims into a trap. Ultimately the honey pot is violently and maliciously discredited so as to destroy the credibility of anything stuck to it by association.”
-Michael Ruppert, “Crossing the Rubicon,” p. 184

Photographs or sound bites are taken out of context to fabricate some new angle that no one had ever noticed before. More often than not, that was because these new findings were patently false. So much sloppy research and twisted factoids peppered the 9/11 “Truth” universe that the very concept of truth itself was devalued in the process.

WHAT IS TRUTH?

Dictionary.com provides a clue:

“1. the true or actual state of a matter…
2. conformity with fact or reality; verity: the truth of a statement…”

Gravity holds us down on planet earth. True. It always has, and this is reinforced by countless experiments, observations and measurements. It is undisputed, and it cannot be disproven.

Things are much less clear when we consider the complex events leading to the September 11th 2001 attacks, the day itself and the aftermath. Matters are so cloudy that often we simply cannot know the truth of a specific question from the available public data.

Period.

Many aspects of the 9/11 attacks are unprovable, covered-up. Numerous crucial questions about the 9/11 plot remain outstanding, and many answers are simply not publicly knowable at this time. The first step to pursuing the real truth is to accept that you don’t know the answer already. The 9/11 “Truth” Movement, however, overflows with people who not only know it all, but they will accuse you of being an agent provocateur if you disagree with them about anything. Asking them to provide actual specific, relevant evidence for an outrageous claim is a sure way to invite howls for your banishment. That’s not a “truth” movement; that’s a belief movement. A bottomless chasm of difference separates the two.

To pursue the truth one must carefully analyze the evidence and assess what has been hidden from public view. That is a path toward the truth. Posting sarcastic propaganda and photographs with bumper-sticker pet theories is simply not analogous. That behavior indicates cultists, religious fanatics, dogmatists and more than a few dolts, racists and even the occasional red-blooded psychopath.

The propensity to simply pass along unverified information without investigating it has torpedoed the 9/11 “Truth” Movement, perhaps permanently. Due diligence requires analyzing a new claim and finding out what evidence supports or refutes it before posting it to some website or Facebook group (yes I’ve been guilty too; consider this my penance). Due diligence is extremely rare. Mis/Disinformation spreads without containment.

Some 9/11 claims can be discarded as ridiculous and at odds with other known, corroborated facts. But that doesn’t prevent them from being repeated ad nauseum. The claim that a missile destroyed the Pentagon lives on, probably the first major 9/11 disinformation coup, and it has long been cited by international corporate media as a sure indicator of mental illness or stupidity. You can point at 42 Pentagon witnesses who saw a plane, noting that zero eyewitnesses ever reported a missile, but, in a self-reinforcing religious mind wash, contrary evidence is handily dismissed. The messenger is bludgeoned. A steaming case of a “honey pot” trap, this Pentagon/missile theory originated from a website that called itself “Silent But Deadly,” hosted in France starting in June of 2003 (Warning: link to disinformation website). This missile theory popped up nearly two years after the actual 9/11 attacks and after a Congressional investigation needed to be censored by the White House, in order to protect their Saudi friends and possible co-conspirators.

“Silent but deadly” is, of course, a euphemism for flatulation! Not just any fart either, but the worst kind.

World Trade Center “owner” Larry Silverstein’s “pull it” out of context blurb will never die either, despite its illogic. Most of those 9/11 “Truth” claims should have bitten the dust years ago, but on the Internet nothing ever dies.

This doesn’t mean that obsessed 9/11 “debunkers” have a dedication to the actual truth either, as it remains largely still covered-up. But that is a topic for another article.

We also have the very touchy matter of Israeli agents arrested in a van on September 11th 2001 after allegedly celebrating a jetliner’s impact into a World Trade Center tower. The full story of these men and Urban Moving Systems, where they worked, has been disappeared from public consciousness. It’s long censored by foundation-funded media, instead of being investigated.

“The lawyer for the five [arrested Israelis] will later note that one photograph developed by the FBI shows one of the men, Sivan Kurzberg, holding a lighted lighter in the foreground, with the burning WTC in the background.”
-History Commons

That’s a delicate matter because blatant neo-Nazi styled rants often accompany propaganda on this topic. Unapologetic anti-Semitic biases, censorship and counter-propaganda muddy this issue and push us further from the truth, as opposed to closer toward it.

This article is probably a waste of my time because I’m not sold that the “Truth Movement” actually wants truth! I’m fairly convinced that the general public does not want the truth either. It’s a minority within a minority that presses to really know and to discard bogus claims. That’s just not enough momentum.

Hopefully that “Rethink 9/11” meme will get people to defer to the architectural and engineering experts, rather than trying to explain controlled demolition themselves. It is entirely possible that controlled demolition played a part in the World Trade Center’s destruction. Maybe even Sivan Kurzberg had a role in it.

It’s not proven. It’s not provable so far. It is one of those “known unknowns,” which Donald Rumsfeld put into the popular lexicon. Maybe it was, and maybe it wasn’t. Wild-eyed religious nut types with high school educations aren’t likely to convince anyone either way. Without verifiable, meticulous sourcing and corroboration, opinions are worthless. If they would let the people who know those technical fields make their cases as best they can we may inch closer toward the real truth.

Maybe they’ll dig up the WTC landfill and analyze all that buried dust. Maybe we’ll see more whistleblowers like Coleen Rowley, Sibel Edmonds, Senator Bob Graham, Kevin Ryan, Willie Rodriguez, J. Michael Springmann, Robert Wright, Indira Singh, Barry Jennings, Richard Grove, Thomas Drake, Anthony Shaffer, Tom Pickard, Ruben Garcia, even Norman Mineta and Richard Clarke.

Anyway, trying to argue sense with the 9/11 clown posse has proven illusory at best. Most don’t like it when they are shown to be in error, and they don’t want to hear contradictory evidence, no matter how true it is. Indicators suggest that most will continue mindlessly forwarding nonsense as “truth” without the slightest accountability to fact check or tailor their claims to the realm of the provable, the factual, the — a-hum — truth.
