South Korean ship sinking is a false-flag operation

Have you ever seen the movie Body of Lies?  You know the movie.  Leo DiCaprio tries to play a tough guy CIA operative in the Middle East and Russell Crowe plays his bloated controller inside Langley.  It’s not one of my favorite movies, but it does hit on a specific nature of the CIA – false-flags.

In case you’ve seen it, I am going to remind you…and in case you haven’t…well, I am going to ruin it for you.  In the movie Leo and Russell are trying to figure out how to reach the main objective to their operation.  Their conclusion – a false-flag operation.  They take some already dead soldiers bodies, put them in a barracks that is empty and blow it up.  The blame is inevitably put on some terrorist organization.  Wikipedia describes a false-flag operation as follows:

False flag operations are covert operations which are designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by other entities. The name is derived from the military concept of flying false colors; that is, flying the flag of a country other than one’s own. False flag operations are not limited to war and counter-insurgency operations, and have been used in peace-time; for example during Italy‘s strategy of tension.

So, could the sinking of a S. Korean ship be the usage of a false-flag?  Given the closeness of the American CIA and the S. Korean government; coupled with the deception and always secret and most of the time illegal acts of the CIA, one could consider the possibility.  This sounds all too reminiscent of the Gulf of Tonkin incident, which was used a pretext to war with N. Vietnam.

Consider for a moment that the United States has helped N. Korea with their nuclear program.  Honestly, I cannot think of a single good reason why North Korea would have in attacking the South.  Suffice it to say, the United States, as we have done, will stick their noses in.  We won’t let them resolve their problems on their own, we give the North money, and as Ron Paul stated, if something doesn’t go “according to plan” we threaten them.

So I would find it completely credible for the CIA to use this opportunity to use a false-flag operation as a pretext to escalation, or as the CFR and the warmongers in Washington want – war.

    Really? Seriously? South Korea sunk one of its own ships and then…what? Spent the last three months trying very, very hard to NOT piss North Korea off? Vacilate and kowtow to the Norks in a desperate attempt NOT to have escalation on their border? If the South/CIA wanted a war with the North (which no one does), they totally passed on this “golden opportunity” (thank, God!). Fortunately for us all, not one single person of importance in Washington or Seoul wants a war with the Norks for a million reasons, not the least of which is the very real possibility that we’d lose. And it’s not like the CIA (the ultimate boogemen…) makes policy in South Korea, or anywhere else for that matter, South Korea stand on its own quite well and has for 50 years now. As to why the Norks would provoke the South, you should read up more on the Norks and their political system, that question has obvious answers :).

      I stand behind my original statement. Provocations for war with the CIA has been well documented. Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan…do any of these ring a bell? What about Noriega? Cuba…maybe? During the Cold War the CIA was just itching at the chance for a fight with Cuba, and it still seems that Cuba is still a hot topic for discussion.

      Just recently I read an article where the North has gone to the U.N. to investigate the S. Korean sinking and the South said “No.” If there wasn’t anything to hide, why not investigate? It’s primarily a war of words: The South says they sunk it and the North says they didn’t. While the United States sticks their noses in and says, “yes, you most certainly did.” Who knows why we would like a pretext to war? We went to war in Iraq under U.N. jurisdiction for weapons of mass destruction and come to find out they don’t have any. Afghanistan is the “neglected war” and at the moment it is a stalemate with no end in sight. Our foriegn policy doesn’t make sense: We arm and give billions of dollars to Pakistan while fighting for democracy in Iraq. Who knows where that money went?

      To revisit history: Look at Vietnam. We illegally funded the South for years, then two incidents in the Gulf of Tonkin suddenly gives us the intiative to spend nine years and lose 60,000 lives. For what?

        So many, many things wrong with that reply, but, as always, we will have to agree to disagree :). The situation on the Korean peninsula in the 2000s is no more similar to Vietnam in the 1960s than are the reasons for our own Civil War similiar to Sudan’s. Vietnam was about containing the Rooskie’s influence in a critically vital area, as was Korea in the 1950s. But this is not 1953 anymore and the reasons and factors have changed dramatically. Anyway, I’ve lost my train of thought, but just know (again) that not one single person in Washington or Seoul with any clear-minded vision of global politics and military capabilities would willinging even think about provoking a war with the Norks. The South as absolutely NOTHING to gain and EVERYTHING to lose from a war, even if it soundly defeats the North. As for America, as has been conclusively shown for decades, our own economic healthy is inexorably tied to that of the Asian Tigers and a war on the Penisula would only serve to hasten the ruin of our own economy.
        All of this is aside from the point that if the vaunted US military machine can’t stop ten guys in robes from throwing grenades at us in Iraq, how are we really going to stop a highly-trained and fanatically-motivated Nork empire with literally millions of men in arms, tens of thousands of tanks, hundreds of thousands of artillery tubes, all of whom only have to drive a bare 50 miles south of the border to completely overrun the South. ANYONE who tells you (while puffing up their Redblooded American National Guard wannabe chest) that we can defeat a fullscale Nork invasion with anything other than the liberal use of tactical nuclear weapons is a total fucking idiot.
        Anyway, fun as always 🙂
