I visit several conspiracy sites on a regular basis, and one meme that keeps surfacing again and again is the “nuclear false flag incident.”
(NFFI) I assume that everyone here is familiar with the concept, but just in case there are any newbies, the scenario for NFFI goes like this: “In
order to justify more wars/a greater police state, the “Elite” will set off a nuclear bomb in an American city and blame it on a country or people
we wish to fight.” Twenty years ago, this would have seemed like the ravings of someone in an asylum; now we live in a world where such a thing
seems not only possible, but probable.
But can it happen? Will it happen?
There’s something very strange about the almost relish with which this fantasy is described, as if the conspiracy world needs it to happen. 9/11 was
such a cinematic, over-the-top piece of opera that the next thing has to be bigger and badder. Ground Zero 2. More special effects. More death. It’s
how we think as Americans. The door has been opened. Everything is on the table. No conspiracy is too crazy, because the elite have shown themselves
to be madmen.
Well, they might be madmen, but they’re not stupid. When I was a boy in the 80’s, I used to worry that Russia was going to nuke us, after I saw
the movie “The Day After.” My dad just laughed at me. “The Reds aren’t going to nuke us, son. They can’t use a cinder!” It took me years
to understand what he meant.
The Elite, like Russia, rely on resources. Nuking a city means millions less workers to slave for them. It means poisoning the air, soil and water in
a large swath of the country, which could come back to bite them. The Elite do not want a nuke going off. They will use passive-aggressive techniques
like GMO crops that sterilize people to reduce the number of useless eaters.
An NFFI creates a couple of logistical problems. First of all, where do you get a nuke? For years, constant rumors that there are “dozens” of
“missing suitcase nukes” from the former Soviet Union, have circulated the Internet.
The truth is that there is probably no such thing as a “suitcase nuke.” The evidence of the existence of such devices is extremely sketchy. There
were backpack-sized “micro-nukes” but they had an extremely small yield (around a kiloton.) And Russia isn’t missing any nuclear weapons.
They’ve checked, believe me. Their biggest fear is that Muslim separatists got their hands on one and will use it on Moscow.
Fine, so let’s say that the Elite has a nuke somehow. Where to set it off? What city will they be willing to sacrifice? What part of the country
would they be willing to write off for generations? How will they deal with the financial chaos that follows? The Elite wants order so they can
continue to rule. They use violence sparingly, and it is always tightly controlled.
So the nuke goes off, but guess what? Every nuclear weapon has its own “signature.” Based on the type of damage, the size of the explosion, etc.,
every other nuclear power will know whose nuke it was. It’s like committing a murder with a special type of gun that only a few people in the world
have, and the police matching the shell casings to the exact gun.
So, despite the lurid fantasies, I don’t think an NFFI is in our immediate future. Generally, it doesn’t take much for us to go to war. 9/11 has
already greased the wheels for a long time to come. They can coast on that for 50 years.
