I read a post at Zerohedge that was sourced from Global Research.ca,  titled, “Americans Are Finally Waking Up To ‘False Flag’ Terror“. Zerohedge and GlobalResearch.ca each have a large readership. By running this article on both websites, and now mine, too, the term “False Flag” will indeed be given a helping hand transitioning into mainstream.  [Source: http://www.globalresearch.ca/americans-are-finally-learning-about-false-flag-terror/5359234 ]

For those of you who are not familiar with the term “False Flag” let me explain by way of an example from the old days: a tactic used by some enemy ships was to fly false colors, (false flag), to penetrate–without being accosted–an armada, either on the high seas or while in port, and wreak havoc.

Lately, the term, “False Flag”,  is being applied to acts by a government wanting to start a war or as a propaganda tool to rally the support of a nation. Unfortunately, with each “False Flag” human lives are used both as bait and cannon fodder.

When I read about “False Flag” working its way into the mainstream public vocabulary, I wanted to take this opportunity to point out it definitely is nothing new that governments deceive their populace or their allies to win compliance to a cause. This has been going on for many centuries.

Though this song is decades old I only recently stumbled upon it. This song is powerful and contains a very timely and powerful message:  “LIVES IN THE BALANCE”, by  Jackson Browne, (1986).  Tell your friends to listen to it, too…   Click here to LISTEN :  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FV678CMjVAA

These days, when it comes to geo-political events, and especially DOMESTIC events, apply a healthy dose of  skepticism, suspicion, and cynicism.

As President Ronald Reagan warned, “Trust, but verify”.
