Mark Twain once offered somewhat sobering yet altogether terrifying remarks pertaining to the role of governments and their leaders: “The statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception.” His words are alarming because they suggest that human beings cannot entirely trust their country’s leaders, but they are sobering because virtually all of us believe this notion to be true.
Vladimir Putin has previously argued that many individuals from Western countries fund ISIS, and now at the G20 summit in Turkey he has allegedly provided intelligence information which validates his claim. As per RT News, Putin said, “I provided examples based on our data on the financing of different Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) units by private individuals. This money, as we have established, comes from 40 countries and, there are some of the G20 members among them.” Furthermore, Putin also argues that some of these countries are involved in an illegal oil trade with IS, which he allegedly confirmed via satellite imagery: the “motorcade of refueling vehicles stretched for dozens of kilometers, so that from a height of 4,000 to 5,000 meters they stretch beyond the horizon.”
This may all seem extremely outlandish at first—and it all very well could be—but it is true that the United States has plotted “false flag” operations in the past (although it does not seem as though plans of this type were ever actually attempted, much less executed). Surprisingly, a Canadian economist and Professor Emeritus at the University of Ottawa recently referred to the terrorist attacks in Paris as “9/11 French Style”—apparently in reference to the belief held by a minority of Americans that the 9/11 terrorist attacks were actually staged by the U.S. government. It’s also interesting to note that Russell Brand shares similar beliefs, along with Steven Seagal.
However, even though it isn’t difficult to imagine that the United States would deceive its citizens (although perhaps not in such catastrophic ways), it’s still incredibly difficult to envision Vladimir Putin telling the United Nations the absolute truth. In fact, there is far more evidence to suggest that Russia is supplying terrorist groups such as the Taliban with weapons—if not with financial or other forms of support. Regardless, it’s a shame that there isn’t more transparency in both the United States and the entire world a whole. One only needs to tune-in to virtually any reputable cable news network to witness the various forms of corruption and atrocities which are constantly being committed by various countries around the globe—and, as is usually the case, it’s a virtual certainty that whatever happens to become publicized is only the tip of the iceberg.
With all of this being said (and read!), you may want to checkout the following “false flag” YouTube video by journalist Ben Swann—just in case.
