A false flag is a very sensative way of doing things. It can (and has) backfired to those who portray it.
If done well enough, it goes through the immediate period of time, people don't realize it and act on the emotions of said false flag, like what
Hitler did right before invading Poland, and like what the US did during WW2 and the Vietnam war.
I'm not going into 9/11 stuff because honestly, the debate around it is not worth the emotions involved. But the negligence in the Pearl Harbor case
is outrageous and historically accepted, which gives some sort of clue to the open mind of the sacrifice philosophy within the US military.
But I don't know if in this case it's worth it. I think it's more about using an asset that is dispensable in case something happens, than an
already set objective.
If anything escapes, if the smallest detail gets out about it, Russia and China and obviously Iran would splatter that all over the world, and for
western societies that might come as hot air, but it would stick in a lot of semi-hostile/hostile countries to the US and western powers. It would
backfire as an excuse or motivation for enemies to align together. Not very worth it, unless they do want a global conflict.
