Paul Craig Roberts: “More Paris Puzzles”

paris

As part of our series exploring different points of view on the “new 9/11”, Dr Paul Craig Roberts questions the official narrative.

Some people who are not inclined to believe the official story of the Paris attack are troubled by the question why Muslim suicide bombers would blow themselves up for a false flag attack. The answer to this question is very simple. But first we should dispose of the question whether suicide bombers did blow themselves up. Is this something that we know, or is it part of the story that we are told? For example, we were told that during 9/11 passengers in hijacked airliners used their cell phones to call relatives, but experts have testified that the technology of the time did not permit cell phone calls from airliners at those altitudes.

To dispose of the question whether we have or do not have any real evidence that suicide bombers blew themselves up, I will assume that they did.

So we have suicide bombers blowing themselves up.

Now turn to the question that troubles some doubters: Why would suicide bombers blow themselves up for the sake of a false flag attack?

As I said, the answer is simple: Why assume that the suicide bombers knew who was organizing the attack? There seems to be abundant evidence that ISIL is a US creation, one that is still dependent on US active or passive support—thus the conflict between Putin and Washington over attacking ISIL. ISIL seems to be what Washington used to overthrow the government in Libya and afterward was sent by Washington to Syria to overthrow Assad. Obviously, Washington has ISIL infiltrated. Washington has long proven its ability to use Islamic extremists. As Washington used them in Afghanistan against the Soviets and in Libya and Syria against independent governments, Washington used them in Paris. By my last count, the FBI on 150 occasions has successfully deceived people into participating into FBI orchestrated “terror plots.”

Now let us move to some bigger questions. Why do terrorists attack ordinary innocent people who have neither awareness of “their” government’s actions or control over them? The victims of 9/11 were not the neocons and members of the Washington establishment, whose policies in the Middle East justified attacks on their persons. Ditto for the Boston Marathon Bombing, and ditto for the Paris attacks. Innocents were the victims, not those who have taken Muslim lives.

Historically, terror attacks are not on the innocent but on the rulers and those who are guilty. For example, it was the Archduke of Austria/Hungary who was assassinated by the Serbian terrorist, not ordinary people blown up or shot down in a street cafe.

It is interesting that terrorists attacks attributed to Muslims only fall upon ordinary people, not upon the political elites who oppress the Muslims. In past years on several occasions I have remarked in my columns on the total vulnerability of the neoconservatives to assassination. Yet there has been not a single attack by terrortists on a neocon life, and the neocons are the source of the violence that Washington has unleashed on the Muslim world. The neocons walk around without threat free as birds.

How believeable is it that Muslim terrorists take their ire out on innocents when the President of France himself, who has sent military forces to murder Muslims, was sitting in the attacked stadium and could easily have been eliminated by a suicide bomber?

Now let us turn to questions of identification of the alleged “Paris terrorists.” Is it realistic to suppose that the millions of refugees from Washington and its European vassals’ wars in the Middle East have passports? Were these millions of refugees expecting to be driven by White Civilization’s Bombs out of their countries and thus had prepared themselves with passports in order to flee?

Did they write on their passport applications that they were going to be visiting Europe?

Was the beleaguered country, their homeland, under full military assault, able to process all these millions of passports?

What sort of dumbshit Western media goes along with the passport story — a media well paid to lie for Washington’s hegemony and crimes?

One final question for skeptics. Where are the photographs of the terrorists during their terrorizing? Surrounding the scenes of violence there were not only abundant security cameras, but also hundreds, even thousands, of people with cell phones that have cameras. With all of these photos, how is it possible that the authorities do not know if some terrorists escaped, and if so, who they are and what they look like? Why are the authorities relying on fake passports for photos of the terrorists?

Terrorism has been unleashed in the Western World, and it is the terrorism of Western governments against Western peoples.

  Attacking the general population does nothing to overthrow the existing (corrupt) power structure….it does the exact opposite…it strengths the military industrial complex…. http://money.cnn.com/2015/11/16/investing/paris-attacks-defense-stocks-isis/   The probable reason why Joe public is attacked is that organisations like the RAND corporation gather as much information and data as possible and “brainstorm” about future trends and extrapolate as to how they can steer these movements …social occurrences….. If you as a ruling elite know that the “peasantry” show the potential tendency for rising up and storming your mansions (palaces) ….de-throne-ing you and your “click”….then it would make sense from your selfish position… Read more »

PR hits the nail on the head-the terrorists believed they were acting as part of a genuine Islamic mission as part of a false flag recruitment ,thats obvious from all the many features and timing of these outrages.They were patsies. What is the anticipated denouement? There may not be a clear and defined plan as such but it was expected that Hollande would respond by air strikes against IS and that other NATO countries could be manipulated by the MSM to follow suit. This creates a more active arena to work on with a view towards either directly challenging Russia,seeking… Read more »

Ok, this is supposed to be an audio recording of the attacks: http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=8eb_1447973168 It was allegedly recorded by a guy’s cellphone, that was in his pocket at the time. Here are some questions I have: a) If the phone was in his pocket why don’t we hear the loud rustling sounds as he moves, runs away or drops to the floor? Are we supposed to believe he stood stock still while the gunmen were firing all around him? b)Why are there so few screams and why do they all seem to be coming from one quite distant location? if he’s… Read more »

The Paris attacks were very much like the 1980s Bologny massacre: Random violent attacks on civilians. The Paris attacks, and the prior problems in France could be part of the US/NATO Gladio “strategy of tension” in Europe, which was formerly attributed to the far-right extremists, before Islam became popular as a tool. For an explanation of Gladio and the “strategy of tension”, this is a good link: https://wikispooks.com/wiki/Document:1980_Massacre_in_Bologna From the website: The “strategy of tension” can be defined as a campaign whose objective is creating a collapse of order and law and, consequently, generating a crisis of the citizens’ trust… Read more »

Hi Mr. Roberts, Thanks for your analysis. I’m a U.S. citizen in Geneva. First, my comment that the attacks were horrible, and my heart goes out to the French people. Beyond that, my first reaction was that this was a false-flag. What I noticed about Charlie Hebdo was that Washington was very sparse in it’s response to the tragedy: Not even the Secretary of State was sent, until the situation was embarrassingly rude, and Mr. Kerry had to come over with some famous singer and apologize, i.e. the U.S. reacted oddly to Charlie Hebdo. What I call to mind is… Read more »

France has been a genocidal murderer of the people of Africa for hundreds of years now. France is waging war on Africa RIGHT NOW. ” Zee boogeyman attacked us, zee victims of our rape and slaughter are not capable of resistance. Zay were not Africans striking back in self defense against their oppressor. They were fanatical religious lunatics, not from Africa, who hate us for our freedoms, not because France is a gang of murderous imperialist pigs.” The poor French are victims of terror. Bombing peoples cities isn’t terror. Oh, no. Genocide isn’t terror. If it was, the United Nations… Read more »

Dr. Roberts,
Would you please educate “the Donald”. I find it hard to believe he is so clueless, but it can’t be an act. We can not survive many more presidents that pretends to respond to events that didn’t happen.

I can’t believe I am supporting Donald but when you are surrounded and have no other options you have to jump off the cliff and hope for the best.

Thankfully, a few bold and courageous men like PCR are teaching the world about the realities of false flag attacks. Yet the question is never raised publicly: is there a consistent pattern to this, who is really behind all of these terrorist acts, for what end purpose and how does all of this end? In truth, the answers to these questions are not found in the mouths of political pundits. They are found in the little-understood world of the occult, end times prophecies of the Bible and an informed understanding of the conspiratorial view of history. Few people have the… Read more »

Of course PCR might have added how is it possible for passports to survive sailing over rough seas in rubber dinghies that might capsize, and their owners being rescued by Italian, Maltese or Greek border patrol vessels but not the passports themselves necessarily.

Anyone paying attention to the Empires and how they’re waging war in every corner, directly or by proxy, is aware that this French 9-11 is but another false flag. So many stand to benefit…Gov’ts have a willing populace ready to concede more freedoms. The Military Industrial Complex will be that much richer for Nov 13th. Xenophobia and a shared distrust of Muslims will benefit Israel, who is upset that France was moving to recognize Palestine and our current Gov’t is on board with that…now, Marine Le Pen, of the Front National (Nazi Party) is in the lead for President.

I agree with these observations. People seem to be hypnotized to the point of not having any logic. How can people not observe what PCR has? Are we zombies?
When the migrants started traveling through the balkans on their way to utopia, I immediately observed that it is impossible for so many Syrians to have obtained passports. It’s not like the Syrians are known as world travelers and therefore all of them had them.
It is so refreshing to read Paul Craig Robert’s articles. His logic is impeccable and his mind sharp.
