An initiating event mobilizes the energies of the discontented and directs them toward violent action. Its impact is more psychological than physical and need not follow immediately after the event.
What is perplexing is that there appears to be many genuinely dead and injured people yet

The thing is, whilst the theory sounds ok, the biggest hole are the actors themselves. Not one has come out and said "Hey I answered an ad on Craiglist and was told it was a drill but people were dying and I was covered in blood" etc
This is the problem with alleged hoaxes you can't silence ALL the people
Now whilst I admit there are some definite anomalies and discrepancies in this saga, hoax no, false flag probably (follow the money Chertoff) patsy? yup think so but I dispute actors in and amongst the concert goers for the reason stated above. People were just standing around basically in shock & confusion I think.

The Las Vegas massacre has all the hallmarks of a false flag attack.
This is as far as I got in your OP. Just what are the hallmarks of a 'false flag attack'?
A list, explanation, or link would be helpful.
The contemporary term false flag describes covert operations that are designed to deceive in such a way that activities appear as though they are being carried out by individual entities, groups, or nations other than those who actually planned and executed them.

Wow, I am halfway through the book about the attack on the Liberty, Phillip Tourney's "Erasing the Liberty". So sad.
I don't see that attack as being a FF, but rather just typical Israeli war crimes and cold blooded murder. For me, an FF must shift the blame to some third party, to deceive. I don't see the Liberty attack as having shifted blame.
As to the Mandalay Bay shooting, unless they quickly officially blame somebody like ISIS or Russia, I don't see any FF either, just cold-blooded murder by whomever it was, with a likely connection to more gun control and security spending.
