This is just a quick primer on how false flag events are done these days before a discussion of Brussels.
Back in the late 60s through the 80s, during Operation Gladio, NATO used real bombs to cause real carnage, murdering hundreds of people in bombings of various public places. They also assassinated Italian Prime Minister Aldo Mora in Italy, which was part of the reason that Gladio was exposed. He was murdered by NATO elements posing as communists under the name “The Red Brigade.” (Check out the 12-minute Web Tarpley YouTube clip on this subject beneath the fold. He is my go-to on Gladio, as he was in Italy as it went on and has written extensively on it.*)
These days they seek to achieve same effect by use of smoke and noise devices and a controlled news media. There is some comfort in this, as there are fewer real deaths, but it has a downside – one, that the public is so dumbed down that it does not take real deaths to scare us, and two that the news media presents no threat whatsoever to the plotters – is in fact an active participant in the hoaxes. Media control appears total now.
The key to the modern terror event is civil defense, medical (responders and hospitals) and military drills that are always underway when a fake event is planned. Participants in these drills are told there is going to be a practice bombing or fake terrorists firing blanks, and that they are to respond as if it were real. When it happens, the news media, which is an active participant in the hoax, reports the event as if it is real. Confusion ensues, and those participants who figure out it is a hoax intimidated into silence (or murdered) if they threaten to speak up. Others merely imagine it was real, but that the tragic events happens in other places they did not witness. In any event, all learn after the event to STFU.
I know nothing about Brussels, as it is too soon and too little has come out so far. But this article indicates that there were intense preparations for the event under guise of security enhancements:
Brussels Airport: 150 collaborators get the job done in just one night
The operational changes involved with the opening of Connector to Pier B were enormous. The equipment of the old screening platform and of the border control booths in the departures hall had to be taken apart. All equipment had be reinstalled and tested in the new environment.
The border control in the departure hall had to be closed off and the signage in the departure hall had to be adapted.
A gigantic task that had to be done in just one night.
That was on March 16. That appears to be when everything was put in place for either a fake or real bombing, though it is all sketchy at this time. Watching the news, the Kabuki Dance in mad pursuit of an alleged perpetrator is underway. That, I assume, is all fake. One can never be sure, but in Boston we know it to be a hoax, and Paris, which was teeming with drills going in a time the of the hoax, has to be suspect as well. (Thus far, we have not had the fake terrorists leaving behind passports or home addresses and phone numbers or drivers licenses and iPhones.We wait.)
It takes some vigilance to keep abreast of these things. Mindless TV news viewing or NPR listening or state-controlled news outlets line the New York Times or Washington Post won’t get it done. You’re being lied to by all sources, as the media is completely compromised.
The spooks behind these operations have real objectives, and bringing about regime change in Syria has long been a goal, ever since terrorists were moved by the spooks from Libya to Syria in 2011. (The Reuters link in that article has been taken down, by Reuters). The fake gas attack in 2013 was to be the triggering event, but the Russians thwarted it. Thus did the spooks counter with a coup d’etat in Ukraine, probably a warning to Russia to stay home, and a way to keep it occupied.
However, the Russians have set back Western ambitions on Syria these past months by doing reality bombing of the western-backed terrorists in that country (rather than bombing sand, as the US tends to do). This has forced NATO and the spooks to regroup, the new objective apparently a Libya-like attack to bring down the Assad government, and possibly ground troops. Thus the Brussels event is probably meant to justify that response.
Scary times, these are. The Russian response at this time is critical. They know what is up, always have, and have played it brilliantly thus far. But you never know who you can trust.
