False Flags Are Real – US Has a Long History of Lying to Start Wars

Human Wrongs Watch

By Danielle Ryan*

16 April , 2018 (RT)*– Use of the term ‘false flag’ is often met with raised eyebrows and accusations of conspiracism. But false flags are a very real and very present feature of geopolitics — and denying that is simply denying reality.

Dear Prime Minister May and Members of the UK Parliament,

12 Apr 2018 – As you are well aware, many people are deeply concerned at the dangerous escalation and tension between political leaders, allegations and accusations and unhelpful rhetoric and threats of war, all of which are leading people to ask if there is going to be a third world war.

Only yesterday one young man told me he had just dreamed of a nuclear explosion and asked me if there was going to be a war soon?   What can I tell him Mrs. May? Can I tell him not to worry that our political leaders passionately believe in peace and are working for a peaceful negotiated solution to the Syrian crisis, and other conflicts?  Can I tell him that you and your parliamentarians will choose peace and not war on Syria?

This appointment has not yet been confirmed by the Senate, so there is still a chance of blocking it. To replace Pompeo as CIA Director, Trump appointed former torture chief Gina Haspel.

Secondly, in what can only be interpreted as an attempt to demonize Russia, the United Kingdom’s government under Theresa May claimed that the former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, who were living in the UK, had been poisoned by a Russian nerve agent.
