"the state is the only terrorist"
"THE GREATEST PURVEYOR OF VIOLENCE ON EARTH IS MY OWN GOVERNMENT" .....said Martin Luther King Jr. April 4, 1967
False flag operations are covert operations conducted by governments, corporations, or other organizations, which are designed to appear as if they are being carried out by other entities.
The name is derived from the military concept of flying false colors; that is, flying the flag of a country other than one's own.
Terrorist attacks may sometimes be in fact false flag operations, as in the Italian strategy of tension in which several bombings in the 1970s, attributed to far-left organizations, were in fact carried out by far-right organizations cooperating with the Italian secret services.
