London's Commuter Train Bombing: Terrorism or False Flag?

London Commuter Train Bombing: Terrorism or False Flag?

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org - Home - Stephen Lendman)

Suspicions of state-sponsored foul play are warranted because so many previous false flags occurred in Europe and America - though it's too soon to know if Britain staged Friday's incident. 

ISIS claiming responsibility is meaningless. They do it all the time, its Amaq propaganda agency announcing it, media scoundrels reporting it like gospel truth.

Previous London underground bombings occurred on July 7, 2005. The so-called 7/7 incident included multiple attacks on the city's public transport system during the morning rush hour for maximum disruption and casualties. 

At precisely the same time, an anti-terror drill was ongoing, simulating real attacks - likely no coincidence. 

Israel's London embassy warned Scotland Yard about the 7/7 bombings in advance, Israeli Army Radio saying "Scotland Yard had intelligence warnings of the attacks a short time before they occurred," yet failed to take precautions or issue warnings.

Israel's then-finance minister Netanyahu was told not to attend an economic conference in the city where he was scheduled to speak.

Other dignitaries were warned in advance, not the public. The 7/7 attack was state-sponsored terrorism to heighten fear, at the time to justify Britain's unjustifiable involvement in US aggressive wars.

Was Friday morning's rush hour London commuter train bombing another false flag? Twenty-nine people were injured, including a young boy, no deaths reported.

As expected, Prime Minister Theresa May elevated the threat level to critical, a fear-mongering stunt, suggesting another imminent attack.

Assistant commissioner Mark Rowley said police are "chasing down suspects," suggesting more than one, adding:

"Military personnel have been drafted in to protect national infrastructure sites, allowing additional armed police officers to carry out patrols."

"Communities across the UK can expect to see more officers, both armed and unarmed, on patrol by foot and in vehicles over the weekend." 

"In particular, they will be patrolling at crowded places, iconic sites, transport hubs and ports. This may mean disruption for those who are traveling."

In a televised Friday night statement, May said until further notice, "military personnel will replace police officers on guard duties at certain protected sites that are not accessible to the public."

"The public will see more armed police on the transport network and on our streets," she added. Militarized societies are unfit to live in - increasingly the case in Europe and America, including Big Brother watching everyone. 

Trump suggested Britain may have known in advance about the bombing, tweeting: "Another attack in London by a loser terrorist. These are sick and demented people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard. Must be proactive!"

His comment didn't go down well in London, May responding "I never think it's helpful for anybody to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation." Metropolitan Police called his tweet "pure speculation."

Numerous earlier violent incidents in America, Britain, France, Spain, Germany, Belgium and elsewhere in Europe were state-sponsored false flags.

It's too soon to know if Friday's London bombing was another one. Given prior history, suspicions are warranted.
