Olympic Games In South Korea – Perfect Opportunity For A False Flag Attack?

    The war rhetoric surrounding North Korea on both sides of the Pacific has never been more aggressive than it has been the past year (at least not since the Korean War). There are some people that see the entire affair as a “distraction,” a distraction that will never amount to actual conflict. I disagree with this sentiment for a number of reasons.

    North Korea is indeed a distraction, but still a distraction in the making. That is to say, the chest beating and saber rattling are merely a prelude to the much more effective distraction of live combat and invasion in the name of regime change and “national security.” As I noted in my article “Korean War Part II: Why It’s Probably Going To Happen,” the extensive staging of military assets to the region that has not been seen in over a decade, the extremely swift advancement of North Korean missile technology to include ICBMs capable of reaching the mainland U.S., the strange and unprecedented language by China indicating that they will not intercede against an invasion of North Korea by the U.S. “if Pyongyang attacks first….” All of this and more shows a clear movement of chess pieces into place for a sudden action.

    According to these factors, I am led to believe that a false flag event blamed on North Korea, or a prodding of North Korea into taking an attack posture, is likely. The purposes behind such a war would be many-fold. Primarily, the final implosion of the vast financial bubbles created by central bank stimulus measures could be undertaken while the banks themselves escape public blame or prosecution.

    A geopolitical crisis large enough would provide a perfect scapegoat for an economic crisis that was going to develop eventually anyway. And, if this geopolitical crisis were initiated by a “rogue state,” along with the poor decisions of a conservative “populist” president (Trump), then the historical narrative would be complete. Future generations would talk about the “great blunder” of sovereign states and nationalists and how hubris and greed and ego led to a global fiscal disaster and unnecessary destruction. The rationale for a one world governmental authority would be planted in the minds of the populace.

    Will a war in North Korea be the trigger event for this narrative? It’s hard to say, as there are so many potential geopolitical powder kegs around the world. However, ample assets to initiate this kind of event are present around North Korea. And, unlike hot spots like Syria and Iran, North Korea offers the most immediate and tangible threat in the minds of many people with its nuclear arsenal.

    The pure panic and mindless reactionary thinking that can be provoked in the unprepared when the danger of nukes is present is quite powerful. This could not have been made more clear than this past week when an “accidental” warning of a live ICBM launch occurred in Hawaii.

    The Hawaii Emergency Management Agency now claims that this false alarm was started by a single employee, who has not been named. How? They somehow “pushed the wrong button” … twice!

    I find this explanation absurd. I can only find one example of a false alarm similar to the one in Hawaii, and this took place way back in 1971 with a mix-up of tapes leading to a broadcast warning of imminent attack on the U.S. After this event, the alert system was subject to streamlining and stopgaps designed to prevent it from ever happening again. During the false alarm of 1971, over six attempts were made for cancellation broadcasts, the first one within about ten minutes of the initial false alarm. In Hawaii, no cancellation was attempted for nearly 40 minutes.

    To add to the overall strangeness, there was yet another false missile alarm in Japan within the same week! Yet again, this alert was immediately attributed to North Korea, but at least this time the alert was corrected 5 minutes later instead of 40.

    To me, this smells of a psyop; a test to gauge public reactions to a threat, as well as planting preconceived notions of a particular bogeyman. The public did not disappoint.

    Eye witnesses described people “running and crying in the streets,” completely bewildered as to what to do. An associate of mine (who is also experienced in preparedness) was in Hawaii at the time of the event. She related to me that her family decided to shelter in place because there were no indications that fallout shelters were available anyway. Other people tried to lower their children into the sewers in an effort to escape a nuclear blast. Here is a video showing the false missile alert causing hysteria in Hawaii:

    (As a side note, sheltering in a sewer during an actual nuclear event is the height of stupidity. Nuclear blasts send irradiated particulates into the air. These particulates then settle in the streets or are washed out of the air by rainfall. This water becomes a highly concentrated dose of irradiated particulates which are then drained down into the sewers. You might survive the initial blast, you might not, but you are certain to die from radiation if waiting out the attack in a sewer. Shelter in a dry basement instead with as much matter density between you and the outside as possible. Keep in mind that whatever place you choose to shelter is where you will likely have to stay for at least two weeks, or until the nuclear half life of the particulates has run its course.)

    Obviously the average American is completely unprepared for a real attack of a minor magnitude, let alone the magnitude of a nuclear blast. Perhaps this reaction in Hawaii was so prevalent because Hawaii tends to be left leaning to the extreme, and leftists are generally poorly prepared for anything beyond a cancellation by their manicurists. That said, the fact that this “mistake” happened to take place in Hawaii and Japan which are already under stress due to the ballistic missile tests of North Korea is an interesting coincidence indeed.

    Seeing what the reaction in Hawaii was like, a real attack presents an alluring opportunity for the establishment. The pure terror involved in just the potential of a nuclear attack is palpable, and this fear makes the masses easy to manipulate. Should a real attack take place, either by North Korea or by other agencies through false flag, when is the most advantageous time?

    The history of Korean conflict suggests a surprise attack is a probable strategy. North Korea is a nation trapped in time, and North Korean authorities remember the success of the surprise attacks they used to launch the first Korean war in June 1950. These attacks allowed North Korea communists to overrun South Korean forces within days.

    In terms of a false flag event, these seem to occur in the midst of other “training exercises” or distracting events. I can’t think of anything more distracting for South Korea than the Winter Olympics, set to take place February 9-25 in Pyeongchang.

    I would note the sudden friendly demeanor between North Korea and South Korea just before the Olympics, including the offer by North Korea to participate in a joint women’s hockey team during the games (something that has never happened before). Would it not be a shame if this ember of goodwill was snuffed out by a North Korean missile test or attack of some kind? The “betrayal” would be excellent war fuel, like a new Pearl Harbor.

    As Secretary of State Rex Tillerson stated recently, the threat of war with North Korea is “growing” despite the recent “thaw” in relations due to the Olympic Games. The thaw is partially predicated on the North Korean demand that all South Korean and US military exercises be cancelled during negotiations.

    The typical response by skeptics will be that any attack by North Korea would be met with massive nuclear response. I would point out that a full-scale nuclear response is unlikely in the region. First, a nuclear onslaught on North Korea also puts its neighbors (our allies) at risk of considerable radiation exposure. The argument may be made that only a conventional assault would be safe for the surrounding countries, not to mention the Pacific U.S., which could see radiation exposure as well.

    Second, a nuke attack is not necessarily going to prevent the need for a ground invasion. North Korea has more than 8,000 underground facilities that we know of and has been preparing for bombardment for over 60 years. Its mountainous terrain also presents serious doubts as to the effectiveness of bombardment. This is not just my assessment but the assessment of the Department of Defense. The idea that one big nuke button is going to solve the problem is childish delusion by people who watch too many movies.

    Hopefully, the Olympics will conclude without incident and the skeptics are proven correct on North Korean tensions being nothing more than a sideshow amounting to a lot of bluster. But for now the level of conflict staging over the past year should be taken seriously, and the panic that could develop if a war does erupt should be concerning to us all. In times of crisis, people act stupidly and they beg for help from anyone offering, even if it is someone with malicious intent. Fearful individuals will give up almost anything to escape uncertainty, including their freedom and their common sense. And nothing causes fear quite so much as thoughts of war and mushroom clouds.

      1. Finally, Brandon Smith is starting to get what the gameplan is: engineered global war as a cover for economic collpase and an excuse for world government.

        His best article in a long time!

        • N Korea is no threat to the US. This is just a distraction because The US and its Obama buddy ISIS lost in Syria so lets go find another boogie man to go pick on. N Korea has a right to defend itself. N and S Korea are finding peace and it just pisses off the NeoCons that peace is breaking out. Time to close all US foreign Military Bases and stop the rape of the American Taxpers by the MICM – Military Industrial Complex Mafia. N Korea has no ability to Nuke the US Msinland. Its all a fabricated lie. Lets see US Government shutdown since we are bankrupt. Yep good excuse to go to war to coverup mismsnagement just like when Rumsfeld announced on Sept 10th the 2 Trillion missing money at the pentagon acco nting office. Boom 9-11 blows up the accounting office. Yeah right how convenient. Coincidence? Hardly..

          • I read that now more like 10 trillion is missing? What get’s me is they shutdown all fed govt. except essential stuff. WHY THE HELL ARE THEY DOING ANYTHING BUT ESSENTIAL STUFF? Fook them all, shut it all down I’m sick of them fookers!

        • + Jay in UK

          Smith has been saying that for a long time. Where have you been living, under a rock?

          • Prepperplus: No he has NOT being saying that for a long time. On the contrary, he has been babbling on about economic collapse alone and explicitly downplaying WW3 as a threat.

            You’re the one who has been living under a rock if you think otherwise.

            • +Jay in UK

              This article isn’t talking about WW3 at all, it’s talking about war in North Korea. Smith has always said that there will be regional wars around the world, but not global nuclear war, because it would be stupid for the banksters to spend trillions of dollars on their control grid only to destroy it all in a flash. Global regional war doesn’t have to be global nuclear war was his point. Crawl back under your rock you dope, you don’t even understand the article you just read! LMAO!

              • Okay, you’re stooping to puerile insults; it says a lot about your character. Judging by your tone, I’m guessing you’re quite young, so I’ll pass over it.

                Setting that aside, you don’t actually know what you’re talking about; I live in the midst of what will probably become a WW3 battleground and few people here are as flippantly dismissive of the gravity of the world situtaion as you are.

                Nuclear war as a means to bring about world government is a key strategic policy of the western globalists and has been for some time. Ron Rosenbaum in his 2011 “How The End Begins” writes about it in some detail, following on from his interviews with insiders.

                The belief is that a nuclear war will not be catasrophic to the planet (“nuclear winter” is a Cold War myth, one of many) and that it would be survivable for many millions, BUT – crucially – it would lead to a revolution in political thought at grassroots level, making it so much easier to sell global government to the people. This is actually Brandson Smith’s point too, if you read his article again.

      2. There is NO good intent on the North Koreans part. Just a PR stunt or delaying tactic.

        • North Korea will use the Olympics to play the victim card.

          Not any different than Hitler using the 1936 Olympics to show how wonderful the Nazis were, hiding their true colors.

          • Actually, at that time the Nazis did more for the citizens of Germany than any other country has done for theirs. Period.

            • Yes, gave the Joos free housing and job training. I’m sure they loved it.

              Arbeit macht frei

            • Agreed.

        • S.Dave, if forced to choose, I’d go with your option B – delaying tactic. For once Brandon Smith might’ve gotten it right. The Olympics would be one fine time to let all hell break loose.

      3. scapegoat for an economic crisis


        Wars are always a boom for the economy. Least he forgets the lessons from WWII. WWII brought America out of the great depression because everybody had a job working for the war effort.

        I had a friend who in 1942 got a job as a bus driver for school. He was 16 at the time. The choice was between him or the town drunk. All the adults were needed for the war effort.

        • John stiner is Wrong. War is only good for the Military Industrial Complex Mafia and its PR Buddy the MSM media liars. Only dopes would buy into that propahanda. Look at the massive $7 Trillion debt the phony Iraq 15 year war costed taxpayers and all Americans got out of that was the bill and higher Gas prices at the pump. War is Fraud and profitable for war machine manufactures.

          • Yup and the stooges keep signing up to fight for it. I guess if your stupid, you better be tough huh?

      4. It does seem odd, having the Olympics so close to a potential threat. I wouldn’t send my grandkids off to compete. Gymnastics and ice skating are very sweet. Petite teenagers make for ideal heart tugs if they should become victims. There doesn’t seem to be anywhere safe these days. Didn’t the Bible predict such a time?


      5. I think that Trump would be more likely to use limited nukes than any other President in recent history.

        This is exampled by Trump using the MOAB bomb in Afghanistan. Never before used, clearly used to send a message to North Korea.

        What I don’t understand is why is the USA not shooting down the missiles that Little Kim is launching?

        We must not be able to.

        • JS,
          If we attempted to shoot down a ICBM and it missed,
          nobody would know, just like TWA flt 800, it would
          be covered up.
          Generally speaking shooting down someone’s “test”
          rockets could be considered an act of war.

          • I would have thought shooting a missile over Japan air space would be an act of war. Shooting one over America would certainly be an act of war.

      6. In other news, “Shearon Harris nuclear plant sirens sound false alarm” this afternoon in the Raleigh, NC area.

        ht tp://www.wral.com/shearon-harris-nuclear-plant-sirens-activated-in-error/17274101/

        Lots of false alarms.

      7. “Hawaii tends to be left leaning to the extreme, and leftists are generally poorly prepared for anything beyond a cancellation by their manicurists.”

        Sentence of the year! LOVE IT! LOL So sad that its true though!!!

      8. Brandon: I would shelter from the initial blast and gamma radiation in any underground location, including a sewer. However, i would not remain there more than an hour or so.

      9. DMONIC, LOL! I’ll agree on that one. “Leftists are generally poorly prepared for anything beyond a cancellation by their manicurists.” Oh so true! I also love that statement!

      10. North Korea is the size of Mississippi with according to CIA website a population of 23 million.. PFFFt Take a flight on google earth and outside of Pyangyong there is no cars, no trucks no people, No shipyards.no ships,now fly over to South Korea and you see exactly what you should see everything above that isn’t in NK. The underground nuclear test is total BS too. Where are the above ground rings that scar the earth like every underground test has left. There is no markets no shopping centers this is a fake country and I dont even think Kim Un Jung even lives on that God forsaken place much less rule the skeleton crew of people living in Pyangyong. This countries has been a big hoax and is ran by the billionair Psycho KOOKS that control Clinton/Obama.
        I could go on and on with this but to cut to the chase this is about
        the MOTHER LODE . NK is satuarated with precious metals,Gold. Platinum, silver and Uranium. Mining is allowed to China, Russia and South Korea at a price . The boogyman doesnt exist
