The Thinking 

Cui Bono?

THE INTERNET is abuzz with skepticism about the official details of the devastating Paris attacks. Was this more manufactured terror, another black operation intended to promote public support for war in the Middle East, divert attention from the real enemies of Europe, inflame passions for and against Muslims, and create the passive, supine herd that concedes to repressive security measures?

The death of the attackers (a familiar component of all false flag events), the drills scheduled for the same day, the seemingly instantaneous appearance of sympathetic lighting on public buildings and the reported lack of images (see first video) of events within the soccer stadium all raise suspicions. There is the troubling question of where the alleged terrorists obtained their explosives. There is also the oddity that the perpetrators of the attacks were instantly identified by the government and media. According to one blogger, Wikipedia had a detailed entry within two hours of the attacks. Michel Chossudovsky writes:

Within minutes following the attacks, which were launched simultaneously, and prior to the release of a preliminary report by the police, France’s media went into overdrive. News commentators and intelligence analysts on France’s network TV stated with authority that the attacks emanated from Syria and Iraq.

The media coverage of these tragic events was casually linked up with the war in the Middle East, highlighting France’s commitment –alongside its allies– in waging a “humanitarian war” against the terrorists.

The Islamic State was identified as the architect of the attacks.

The attacks were described without evidence as an act of revenge and retribution against France for having bombed ISIS strongholds in Syria and Iraq as part of Obama’s counter-terrorism air campaign.


The political discourse is in some regards reminiscent of the 9/11 attacks and the statements of George W. Bush et al.

The media immediately started comparing the November 13 attacks in Paris to 9/11, intimating that France was at war and that the alleged Islamic State attack was from abroad, i.e. the Middle East.

Police State Measures

President Hollande had ordered by decree without debate or consultation with France’s National Assembly the enactment of a State of Emergency throughout France, coupled with the closing of France’s borders allegedly to prevent terrorists from coming in, and from terror suspects from leaving the country.

The measures also included procedures which enable the police to conduct arbitrary arrests and house searches without a warrant within the Paris metropolitan area opening up the development of a potential hate campaign directed against France’s Muslim population.

Will the attacks be used to justify deploying NATO troops to Syria?

Some are saying The Economist magazine, a propaganda arm of the international oligarchy which holds its famous secret meetings at the Hotel de Bilderberg in the Netherlands every year, predicted the attacks on its cover earlier this year. The occult symbolism on the magazine cover is analyzed at the preceding link. The fact that the attacks occurred on Friday the 13th and that a concert hall hosting “The Eagles of Death” are similarly disturbing. A familiar feature of false flag operations is the simultaneous promotion of immoral behavior. (In the Virginia shooting, the live-in relationship between the allegedly murdered reporter with a news anchor was featured. In the Oregon shooting, the supposed hero Chris Mintz was photographed in his hospital bed with a demonic trio of friends.)

We cannot know, of course, but all official accounts of terror attacks should be treated with skepticism. We know for sure that government intelligence agencies have already engaged in massive deception and treason to achieve political goals through terror. We should be sympathetic to the dead, but withhold definite conclusions as to the perpetrators. Above all else, we should refuse to be afraid.

Rearranging these numbers, one gets the dates for the Charlie Hebdo attack and the Friday the 13th attack.

Some blunt talk from Red Silverj:

And Zero Hedge reports on the apparently fake passport found next to the body of one of the alleged terrorists.

Passports are amazingly resilient.

As you know the rock  group Eagles of Death Metal was playing a sold-out concert at Le Bataclan theatre in Paris  when the recent terrorist attack took place.  

Kiss the Devil is one of their songs and according to the playlist for the night they were performing it when the attack began.

Who’ll love the Devil?

 Who’ll song his song?

 Who will love the Devil and his song?

I’ll love the Devil

 I’ll sing his song

 I will love the Devil and his song .

Who’ll love the Devil?

 Who’ll kiss his tongue?

 Who will kiss the Devil on his tongue?

 I’ll love the devil…

I’ll kiss his tongue!…

 I will kiss the devil on his tongue!…

Poetic licence?  Who is this devil that a supposedly secular group find attractive?  In a forum where I raised these questions I was told EofDM  is a spoof band, one of their  singers is nicknamed The Devil and the song was a reference to him. A ridiculous explanation on many levels, was he singing about kissing his own tongue?   Anyway, did they see the devil they presumably choose to serve , in action that night?

The deaths at the concert cannot be a consequence of what Eagle Death Metal sing. Afterall, ISIS behead small girls in Syria who haven’t done anything to justify them being murdered.  Both the children and concert goers were killed because Mohammad prescribes such behaviour

Both  the musicians and the jihadists  did exactly what they wanted, nothing coincidental occurred , and neither did anything conspiratorial happen. Blaming the West for the deaths, which CT’s are already claiming, is ultimately futile and avoiding dealing with a political / religious system that is  confronting  us,  and which proscribes such actions.  Not to mention it absolves  the perpetrators of their guilt.

 While the musicians  sang about kissing the devils tongue and serving him (whoever they think he is), the others killed in the name of their god. There is no moral equivalency here, one is worse than the other. Nevertheless, each are deceptions  which carry destruction within themselves for any society which doesn’t take seriously what they say.  Without spiritual  perception it is difficult to recognise this  to overcome the nihilism both offer.

Laura writes:

After 9/11, there is no way, not in a million years, that I am going to take at face value government reports of jihadist terrorist attacks. We need to  dig deeper to be sure of the perpetrators and who supported them. I assume many people were indeed murdered in Paris.

Eric writes:

I will once again take issue with your take on a shooting event. This is an unpopular opinion in some circles, but I think the Paris shootings were an unwelcome surprise to French (and other) authorities. Well, maybe not a complete surprise – after Barcelona, Charlie Hebdo, 7/7, and 9/11, another attack was sure to come sometime and someplace. But I don’t think this was an inside job.

You seem to think this bears the hallmarks of a false flag. The best reason to doubt that is that the most likely immediate outcome of the attacks is a hardening of public opinion against the migrant invasion, and enhanced support for the National Front and other rightist European parties. Both of these are anathema to the European and American/Israeli global elite.

There are stories in the press about a French-born man with Algerian roots participating the terror attack, which very much feeds Marine LePen’s narrative about France and Frenchness being a matter of blood and faith, and not just paper citizenship. There have also been stories about a Syrian passport, which are presented with much tut-tutting and temporizing: “We must not draw conclusions, comrades …”. But the easiest conclusion is that ISIS sent someone up with the “refugees”, and he carried his passport to the attack knowing it would be found – it was just another way for ISIS to claim responsibility. How does this help the Eurocrats? It helped LePen, if anyone – but they are trying to throw her in prison for criticizing Islam, of all things. If this was a false flag, it was an own-goal.

Bear in mind that skilled bureaucratic operators (I am thinking here of the likes of Wolfowitz, Feith, Perle, et al) know that crises emerge from time to time, and they are prepared to jump on them, and to spin events their way. For example, if you want the US to bomb Iraq, and some Saudis from Afghanistan attack the US (or so it is said ….), then you spin out a story that the Iraqis participated and presto, Uncle Sugar delivers. This does not mean that Doug Feith engineered the attack on the World Trade Center, only that he pre-positioned himself to benefit from such an event.

In the moments after the bomb bursts, there is a cacophony of shouting, and everything we hear is filtered through panic, ignorance, anger and greed. Those closest to the events are in shock. The first responders, the next best source of information, have their hands full helping good people and arresting malefactors (remember, at least one of the rats is still scurrying around). The news organizations fight to be the first out the door with stories, and fight for scraps. Various players weigh in with facts and opinions that are weighted by their interests and preconceptions. The result is a kaleidoscope of truth, untruth, half-truth, ignorance, supposition, and outright lies. Drawing a big conclusion from one or two details or lacunae in the official story is a mug’s game at best.

Having said that, it’s a mug’s game I like playing from time to time, which means I am a mug, I suppose. Every once in a while, a little tidbit surfaces in the sewage and gives real nourishment, like the “magic passport” of 9/11. But I don’t think you can get any really useful information from (for example) the paucity of photographs from the stadium, and so forth.

Laura writes:

I assume many people were killed in Paris, but we need to know more to understand this event.

As for the Marine LePen right being anathema to the global elite, I disagree. The latter thrives on creating division and distraction.

Eric adds:

My impression from watching the news and all is that the PTB have collectively exclaimed, “Oh, merde! It has happened!” and have then spun it their way – after about an hour of unfiltered but very garbled news.

The biggest spin has been that force will be applied in the Middle East, which is thousands of miles from the banlieux where this was hatched. The Western Powers are always happy to deal with attacks in Europe and the USA by bombing the sand in Arabia. This has never worked, but is always the first choice.

The next biggest spin is pacifism towards Muslims in Europe. All the candle-burning and singing is really intended to divert the shock and grief into a treacly sentimentality, to sop up the emotion before it ferments into rage. When Muslims are killed by their enemies, the town turns out to swear vengeance upon their killers; when Europeans are killed, their “leadership” organizes feel-good candlelight parades. If they wanted to do some good with those candles, they could set fire to a mosque. Better they carried torches instead.

Red Silver J made the one point on the video that sums it up: Syria is not in debt to the international bankers.

Any country in this category is subject to attack, in order to force them into debt to supply their defense. The IMF has to make the west mad enough at a non-debtor country to attack them, and this is done by staged media events, just like 911.

Laura writes:

Returning to Eric’s point about Marine Le Pen politics, Paul Craig Roberts, who believes it is possible the attack was a false flag operation, writes:

Realizing its vulnerability, it is entirely possible that the French Establishment made a decision to protect its hold on power with a false flag attack that would allow the Establishment to close France’s borders and, thereby, deprive Marine Le Pen of her main political issue.

He adds:

Some people are so naive and stupid as to think that no government would kill its own citizens. But governments do so all the time. There are an endless number of false flag attacks, such as Operation Gladio. Operation Gladio was a CIA/Italian intelligence operation that relentlessly bombed innocent Italians, such as those waiting in a train station, murdering hundreds, and then blaming the violence on the European communist parties in the post-WW II era in order to block the communists from electoral gains.

 Hollande has closed the French borders, making the election of Le Pen less likely.
