The USS Liberty Attack and the "Sabotaged" Saudi Oil Tankers

Christopher Jon Bjerknes

In 1967, the Israelis launched a false flag attack on the USS Liberty. The Israelis wanted America to think that Egypt had sunk the vessel and then declare war on Egypt.

This was yet another attempt to provoke an American war by attacking a ship. The supposedly sabotaged Saudi oil tankers may well fit into this pattern of deception. Both Saudi Arabia and the United States are eager to instigate a war against Iran at the behest of Israel. They lack only a pretext which will rally their peoples to wage war. Nothing threatens Saudis like an attack on their oil trade. This will have the Saudi public riled up and ready to fight. This fight will have a powerful religious element to it that will spread across the Middle East and the world. It will also potentially isolate America and Europe from major oil suppliers, which will hurt us and benefit Israel and Russia by raising energy prices and availability.

When you look at the attacks on the Saudi oil tankers, and the coming attacks on other ships, remember the USS Liberty, the Maine, the Lusitania, Pearl Harbor, the Gulf of Tonkin incident, etc. It is a centuries' old tactic to provide a pretext for war and the public outrage needed to support it.
