IRAN: US/Israeli False Flag Attack May Be Underway

by Jim Fetzer and Joshua Blakeney


Several warnings of an imminent “false flag” attack by the Israeli-influenced United States on one of its own warships, which will be attributed to Iran, have been reported by several reliable sources.

In recent years “false-flag” terrorism has been utilized multiple times by US and Israeli political actors to provide pretexts for otherwise unjustifiable, anti-Islamic military excursions. The plan is to justify an all-out assault on Iran based upon a new fabricated “Pearl Harbor”.

Israel is the primary motivator behind the attempts to destabilize Iran. US traditional foreign policy was one of attempting to foster stability in the Middle East for oil markets. The Zionist impulse, conversely, is to destabilize all potential regional hegemons and carve the Middle East up into ethno-religious statelets.

Thus, since the fraudulent events of 9/11, we’ve seen a policy of Middle East disintegration being pursued by Israeli-influenced American politicians. Indeed, recently released CIA memos reveal that Mossad agents have been posing as CIA agents and conscripting anti-Iranian terrorists.

Former Israeli intelligence officer, Avi Perry, startlingly wrote in a January 9th Jerusalem Post article of a forthcoming “ ‘Pearl Harbor’ scenario, in which Iran [will] launch…a “surprise” attack on the US navy,” giving the US “the perfect rationalization to finish them [Iran] off.” Tellingly, Perry chose to put the word “surprise” in quotation marks. Is Perry telling us something?

Perry asserts: “[an] Iranian attack on an American military vessel will serve as a justification and a pretext for a retaliatory move by the US military against the Iranian regime.” However, Perry identifies “a US aircraft carrier” as the likely target of this imagined Iranian attack.

USS Vincennes returns to San Diego (October 1988)

We beg to differ. There are major indications that the vessel of choice is to be the USS Vincennes. The fourth USS Vincennes (CG-49) is a US Navy Ticonderoga class Aegis guided missile cruiser.

On July 3, 1988, the ship shot down Iran Air Flight 655 over the Persian Gulf, killing all 290 civilian passengers on board, including 38 non-Iranians and 66 children.

This would be an ideal vessel for the staged provocation as it could be easily sold to the world as having been Iranian retribution for the 1988 downing of Flight 655.

That way the evident lack of motive for Iran to provoke the US and Israeli military titans will be replaced by a perceived “motive.” No one will stop to ask themselves why Iran would thereby invite its own national annihilation.

If we were to believe the Wikipedia version of history, the Vincennes has already been scrapped. The Wikipedia article for the Vincennes states, “The Vincennes was completely scrapped by 23 November 2011.” If that were true it could not be used as the target of this “false-flag” attack. Yet we have photographic and testimonial evidence suggesting otherwise.

The USS Vincennes afloat in Puget Sound. The ship has an orange hue.

It cannot have been "completely scrapped" and still be afloat in Puget Sound.

A reliable source interviewed by one of us has brought us up to speed on the latest developments:

“We now know what that INACTIVE Ticonderoga class AEGIS missile cruiser got towed out of here under cover of darkness for. It’ll likely be the sacrificial lamb that starts the war with Iran….

“Why else would they move it when all the rest sit at a buoy here for months before they finally leave to be sunk?

“I told this to a former 9/11 Truth person back when that ship got moved that it was likely to be used for a FALSE FLAG attack. Well, we’ll soon see if I was right about this one.”

Since the ship left Puget Sound in the dead of night about two months ago, it’s most probable location today is at the 5th Fleet Headquarters in Bahrain for safe keeping until the time comes for its deployment.  The ship would have been refurbished and repainted and provided with remote control capabilities.

“That is the only location in the region outside of Haifa Harbor where she could probably be at least partially concealed by cocooning the superstructure to make it less obvious who she is. Meanwhile, the US Navy is compiling a list of casualties based upon deceased sailors, very much as was the case on 9/11,” we were advised.

Former Israeli false-flag attacks, such as on the USS Liberty in 1967, and the Argentine attacks in 1992 and in 1994, demonstrate Israel’s willingness to attack US targets, on the one hand, and its own people, on the other. It’s highly probable that, having shipped the Vincennes into an acceptable location, that the Mossad, which has also been implicated in the events of 9/11, would do the rest of the dirty work.

Or the United States, which has become Israel’s lackey, might blow up one of its own ships, which would be a literal and a figurative sign of how low the US has sunk.

“As a Marine Corps officer, I swore an oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States from all enemies, foreign and domestic”, Jim Fetzer observes. “Neither I nor any other officer I know ever swore allegiance to the State of Israel. 

Our leaders are not only betraying our own Constitution but have turned our nation into a servant of an unworthy, brutal and tyrannical master, who couldn’t care less about the best interests of American citizens–and our own leaders not only permit this to happen but actually promote it.”

In light of recent “deep political events” in Iran, including the recent murder of Iranian nuclear physicist Professor Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, it would not be surprising if the US and Israel were to raise the ante by implementing a fraudulent trigger incident, which may very well ignite World War III.

Because of the pervasiveness of US-Israeli deceptions, an increasing number of public intellectuals are awakening to the prospect of these fraudulent events BEFORE THEY HAPPEN, as appears to be the case with this initiative. We can’t be certain about all of this, because we are on the outside, looking in.

Perhaps the USS Vincennes actually has been scrapped.  But on this point the world can rest assured: they haven’t scrapped the plan!

US Fed News Service, Including US State News September 12, 2009 LINCOLN, Neb., Sept. 10 — The University of Nebraska issued the following news release:

The Nebraska men’s basketball team finalized its 2009-10 television schedule on Thursday, as it announced an additional national telecast along with eight more games set to be seen on Fox Sports Midwest to complete the Huskers’ outstanding slate of TV games. Adding in Nebraska’s league contests televised under the Big 12 contract with ESPN, fans will see at least 21 Husker games on television this winter. this web site fox sports midwest

“We have a strong schedule both in the non-conference and especially in the Big 12 this year, so we’re excited to work with our television partners to bring a lineup of quality games to our fans,” said Executive Associate A.D. Marc Boehm. “This may be the deepest the conference has ever been, and our fans will benefit from this TV package with 15 league games televised around the state and across the country.” The Huskers’ agreement with Fox Sports Midwest will allow Nebraska to be seen four times in non-conference play, along with providing four more league games on television. The Huskers start their TV schedule on the road when they head to St. Louis to take on the Saint Louis Billikens on Nov. 18. The mid-week contest will tip off at 7 p.m. and will be one of three road games Husker fans can view on Fox Sports Midwest. foxsportsmidwest.org fox sports midwest

Nebraska will also have home games televised for matchups with UMKC on Nov. 24, Chicago State on Dec. 10 and Oregon State on Dec. 12 before getting into conference play. The league slate on Fox Sports Midwest starts on Jan. 16 when the Huskers play host to Iowa State and potential NBA top-10 pick Craig Brackins, and is followed by a pair of road contests at Kansas State (Feb. 17) and Iowa State (Feb. 24). NU’s final game on the network will be March 2 for Senior Night at the Devaney Center when the Huskers play host to Colorado.

The Huskers also picked up another national telecast as FSN will carry the Nebraska contest at USC on Nov. 29. The game is part of the Big 12 / Pac-10 Challenge. USC will return the trip to Lincoln the following season.

Returning for his sixth season calling the action for Husker telecasts on Fox Sports Midwest will be veteran broadcaster Greg Sharpe. A two-time Kansas Sportscaster of the Year while covering the Kansas State Wildcats from 1996 to 2002, Sharpe has also been the radio voice of the Huskers since late in the 2007 football season. For the second straight season, Sharpe will be joined in the telecast booth by former Husker and 13-year NBA veteran Eric Piatkowski, who will be in his second year serving as color analyst.

    This is clearly a Ticonderoga Class ship, the forward SM1 Launcer is still in place and the deckhouse has been completely removed. CG-49 is the only member of the DDG/CG-47 Flight I subclass to be scrapped. The hull form here does not match any other similar ships in the USN Inventory. Make your own Conclusion.

      The latest intel I received was that the USS Vincennes, far from having been scrapped, was in the Mediterranean Sea and lobbing shells to test the “Iron Dome” the US has been constructing to save Israel from destruction when the waves of missiles are directed her way after an assault on Iran! The joint US/Israeli op that had been planned has subsequently been cancelled, where some have inferred that it was because they could no longer target the Vincennes. My latest info is that she has been replaced by the Enterprise, where by coincidence I found this comment on the page you gave as a URL:

      Scotty, Huey, the government does not have much choice. Do you realize that there is only one US Navy ship presently in commission with a longer service life than the Big E? That ship is the USS Constitution!

      The Enterprise is suffering from secondary neutron contamination in her reactor rooms. The steel in the reactor vessels and their supports has become brittle. Despite having gone through SLEP (Ship Life Extension Program) overhaul and despite constant upgrades to her electronics, many of her secondary systems are worn out. The Navy has taken her as far as they can. I suppose in theory they could cut her apart, remove the old reactors and all the supporting structures and frames and the like from the engineering spaces, fabricate new ones and reassemble her; but that would cost almost as much as building a new ship. It’s simply not economical.

      When she’s decommissioned next year, she will be the longest-serving warship in modern history, one final honor to put to the proudest name in the United States Navy. By law, she has to be scrapped here. There are two types of ship the Navy is not allowed to sell to a foreign shipbreaker: submarines and aircraft carriers. She will give one last service to her country by providing employment for honest American citizens.

      But look to the future. The Navy’s Public Affairs Office has been asking the public for suggestions for the names of the next class of carriers, the CVN-21 class. The responses they have been receiving seem to be along the lines of, “Don’t name them after politicians or Presidents. Give them the names of famous Navy warships, preferably carriers. Names like Yorktown, Lexington, Saratoga, Kearsarge, Guadalcanal, Wasp, Hornet, Intrepid, Bonhomme Richard, and Constellation.”

      And, let it be said, Enterprise.

    A false flag would have to be a nuclear attack for it to be used for political means. Israel along with everyone else knows that the US is too bankrupt to have a conventional war with Iran. Even Israel knows that you should never destroy a host when you wish to live off it like a parasite.

    The oil sanctions against Iran are being done to sees who still obeys America – allies are going to be lost over the next decade as the US empire goes into decline. Meanwhile the US is trying to destroy the Euro so that it can leave the US dollar printing presses going but other currencies are going to be used as well as the Euro, such as the RMB, so its a waste of time, except that it will bring some investments dollars into the US dollar, economy and bonds. This will help America pretend that the emporer still has some clothes for a while at least.

    85% of US, “that’s impossible, things like that don’t happen…” Saw 5th column think tank analyst
    article where he was denigrating Iraqi’s collective IQ of 87. If that so US collective IQ < 50.

  5. JS  January 15, 2012 at 7:30 am

    Dr. Fetzer,
    Your scenario is highly likely, but a downed airplane could also be effective as plan B. The real question is WHEN. My guess is that it would be shortly before or after the US election Nov. 6, because crude oil prices would at least double. Gas prices at the pump would rocket, and that could kill Obama’s election chances, even with American outrage factored in.

    • JS  January 15, 2012 at 7:37 am

      I should have added that a monster recession is underway in Europe and the rest of the world. We don’t even need a false flag to destroy the world economy. All we need is an excuse to close the straits of Hormuz which Iran threatens to do, and what is up with Ahmadinejad playing along with all this? I believe he is a NWO stooge, but please prove me wrong. Doubling the price of oil and gas would absolutely kill global trade, and sink the whole world, including China, and even eventually Russia, but the planners of this fiasco don’t care, as long as they personally rake in their dirty profits from oil trades, drugs, and then the arms we will need when this economic war breaks out into world war.

  6. judgment  January 14, 2012 at 8:53 pm

    Some in this article is out of date. No argument Israel wants the world to know the US is in it with them, gives them added power but they are not getting much from Obama unless is has to do with our security such as the Gulf and Hillary behind the scene with those democrat insider who want her as president. The activity in the area by each nation, Israel and USA is not for joint purpose. As far as the idiot argument “we cannot allow them to have nuclear” it is idiotic, we have no authority to deny Iran what we allowed others, a Nuclear free zone is the only thing we can pursue and the only thing workable. . Another action by force will be an act of aggression.
    Israel will NOT stop with Iran Nuclear power because Iran is the least likely to use it than other in the area.
    Any effort we make to bomb the false claim of our full support will de-escalate Israel claim on our power.. That will help this nation better than panic. Of course we have to point out to those Candidate and Neocon to cool it or face the consequences when the bombs start falling this way. So, lets remind them we do not intend to pay in blood the price for their Jewish money and support.

      Hey Pete; they don’t call it Judeo-Masonry for nothing…Matthias Chang calls it the Anglo-American Zionist cabal…it interlocks, that’s why they’re so powerful…and extensive..and what binds them together is they’re hatred of the Catholic Church ( pre-Vatican II ) and it’s social doctrine which happens to proscribe usury, fraudulent private central banking, etc. As does Islam..

    Zionism is a religious false flag that terrorizes our churches the way that 9/11 terrorizes everything and everyone else. Zionism is based on the second-greatest conspiracy theory of all time, the alleged plot to exterminate “God’s people” in the 1940’s. I think you can guess the greater conspiracy, a true conspiracy whether read literally or figuratively, but unfortunately the Zionist crowd doesn’t care about anything or anyone else, because they suffer from a madness that requires Armageddon and the extermination of the infidels for completion. In case anyone thinks I made this up, Ted Koppel asked Netanyahu what he says to his kids (circa Gulf War I) about war, and Bibi replied “I read to them from the book of Joshua”, i.e. the methodical extermination of the Canaanites.

      “Note: I can’t post to Facebook because they threatened to close my account for linking to Veterans Today”. If your comment is accurate and becomes a virus that infects the rest of us linking to Facebook, then it will be safe to say that the administrators of Facebook are the first visual representatives of the NDAA “black-bag special”. Seems unlikely at this stage of the “beta test”, but then again, anything is possible.

How do they expect to pull this off? It would be easier to pull Beorge Bush off Jeff Gannon..

    Brilliant article – and very well said, Sir. I have to say that I am becoming more positive about the world now with every passing day. I am NOT positive about forthcoming events in Iran of course, they are moving relentlessly and sickeningly in the direction that we have all come to know and despise. We on this site have also come to know the reasons why.

    What makes prospects for the world so much brighter today is the number of high calibre people now speaking out against the zionist monsters and their grotesque plans. Not only are more and more able people beginning to discover (with some considerable shock and horror) that their history teachers had LIED to them grievously at school and college – but also they are beginning to see through the very latest lies and ‘doublespeak’ from the controlled media about current news items.

    It was once said that in a world of highly confusing international events, wars and alliances – the moment you REALISE that in international politics EVERY issue has to be bent to the advantage of israel and the zionist masterplan – the world suddenly snaps into sharp focus! Once you take this fact on board – the world will never be a confusing place again.

    Being armed with this knowledge does not help with your natural anger however – but it does help to at least know your enemy and his disposition. Some people today are intelligent enough to not only see through zionist plots but can also therefore calculate their next move. The speed of information dissemination via the internet has compounded this problem for our zionist enemy.

    I believe that they have been panicking to attack Iran, are imposing rafts of draconian legislation to curtail people’s freedom – and have engineered 9/11 – because they now know that their time is nearly up. Soon so many people will have compromised their plans that they will be confronted and held harmless (and hopefully arrested for the many crimes). The race is on – and they are in a vulnerable position right now. The sooner veterans move against them the better.

    I am afraid it seems inevitable. I just hope there are not any more innocent deaths. Enough is enough.

  14. NortonSmitty  January 14, 2012 at 11:08 am

    The Vincennes was one of the first CG’s to have both the Aegis system and the new GE gas turbine propulsion systems, making it one of the most modern and formidable warships in the world. It was launched in 1985 and was designed to have a 50 year minimum life due to it’s modular design which enables it’s major components to be easily replaced as needed.

    I cannot see any reason it would be decommissioned at this point other that to feed the MI Complex or for the reasons stated above. We’ll soon find out.
