All throughout American history TPTB have used flase flags attacks to do three things

Start Wars Strike Fear into the citizens and use that fear to impose laws that limit our freedoms This thread will cover the ones from 1960-the present day

The Idea to use terror attacks came in the form of a document called Operation Northwoods The plan called for a series of brutal terror attacks on Miami DC and elsewhere this plan also sounds Just like the 911 attacks

Code named Operation Northwoods, the plan, which had the written approval of the Chairman and every member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, called for innocent people to be shot on American streets; for boats carrying refugees fleeing Cuba to be sunk on the high seas; for a wave of violent terrorism to be launched in Washington, D.C., Miami, and elsewhere. People would be framed for bombings they did not commit; planes would be hijacked. Using phony evidence, all of it would be blamed on Castro, thus giving Lemnitzer and his cabal the excuse, as well as the public and international backing, they needed to launch their war.

The next one was The Tonkin incident were the ship Maddox was supposedly blown up I honestly could not find enough info to be sure on this one but from what i have found so far i think the incident went down something like this

The attack was not unprovoked the Maddox was actually supporting South Vietnam at the time but on august 4 the second incident never actually happened And the radar reports were ghost ships If anyone coud post links to outher sites that woud be great

Fast forward to 1995 The Oklahoma bombing a terrible tragedy according to the story A truck filled with 6,200 pounds (2,800 kg)[1] of ammonium nitrate fertilizer, nitromethane, and diesel fuel mixture was detonated in the front of the building killing 168 people
shortly after Timothy McVeigh and his friend were arrested and charged with blowing up the building the attacks lead to new laws that were 'Designed to protect buildings from terrorists'' An important thing to be noticed was that Local news sites reported two bombs

One theory focuses on a cover-up of the existence of additional explosives planted within the Murrah building.[15] The theory focuses on the local news channels reporting the existence of a second and third bomb within the first few hours of the explosion.[15][16][17] Conspiracy theorists say that there are several discrepancies, such as an inconsistency between the observed destruction and the bomb used by McVeigh. Theorists point to nearby seismographs that recorded two tremors from the bombing, believing it to indicate two bombs had been used.[18] Experts disputed this, stating that the first tremor was a result of the bomb, while the second was due to the collapse of the building.[10][18][19] Many critics of the official explanation point to a blast effects study published in 1997, utilizing test results from the Eglin Air Force Base. It concluded that "it is impossible to ascribe the damage that occurred on April 19, 1995 to a single truck bomb containing 4,800 lbs. of ANFO" so that the damage to the Murrah building was "not the result of the truck bomb itself, but rather due to other factors such as locally placed charges within the building itself".[20] Some experts ascribe the unusually large blast pattern to a thermobaric weapon, utilizing highly flammable metal particles (such as aluminium) mixed with a liquid high explosive (such as nitromethane). When ignited in a two-stage process, the device creates a super-high heat and pressure blast capable of flattening buildings.[21] There's also the fact that a pillar closer to the Ryder truck was mostly intact, while a pillar further away was destroyed in the blast.

The final one is going to be about 911 the big one i wanted to talk about made it happen on propose because it realties to the rest of this thread
The 911 attacks happened for three reasons to start a war scare Americans And impose Laws that impose our freedoms see how it came full circle? Also it Also it happend to distract Americans from the fact that the government just lost over a trillion dollars

You missed one, the one that was uncovered and never punished.
This was planned by the US and an "ally" on US property and persons.
This "ally" is still very much in lockstep with the US.
Many have dual citizenships US and this "ally" in high offices.
You forgot one, Remember the U.S.S LIBERTY.
Because israel enjoys killing more than just Palestinians.

Your not really in the center of it, no one responsible for a false flag attack cares about your "freedoms". You losing something or feeling like you have is just a byproduct.

I would say control or money is the main purpose. But even then we're being vague...
