Beware False Flag Drone Attacks

Opinion by Walrus | Sic Semper Tyrannis | September 21, 2019

The corollary to the Houthis brilliant use of do – it – yourself drones and perhaps cruise missiles, is that anyone else can do the same. This makes the possibility of false flag attacks using such weapons more likely in my opinion. Such attacks would not even necessarily require the resources of a State actor to execute, all the materials, bar perhaps the explosive, are freely available around the globe.

I will not explain the mechanics of manufacturing such weapons. Take it from me that a group of determined hobbyists could do so, provided they have sufficient security and money. Such weapons could be labeled for example “made in Iran” in such depth that it would be impossible to refute their origin, no matter how good ones forensics are.

A State actor, perhaps bent on mischief, could do this rather quickly. While this is just a guess, I would be surprised if various Western countries security services did not already have an operation underway to replicate the Houthi achievements, if only to answer the politicians question: “How did they do that??” and to start thinking about countermeasures.

My reason for being concerned enough to raise this topic is that President Trump has committed troops to Saudi Arabia and we already have other troops and assets in the region. If they were subject to attack and we took casualties, I don’t see how the President could avoid war assuming Iran was blamed.

What triggered me was this article in the WSJ (paywalled) whose opening sentence is:

Yemeni Rebels Warn Iran Plans Another Strike Soon

“BEIRUT—Houthi militants in Yemen have warned foreign diplomats that Iran is preparing a follow-up strike to the missile and drone attack that crippled Saudi Arabia’s oil industry a week ago, people familiar with the matter said.

Leaders of the group said they were raising the alarm about the possible new attack after they were pressed by Iran to play a role in it…”

Once technology is out of the box, as the Houthis have demonstrated, it can’t be returned. How do we avoid false flag attacks?

  1. Beirut – what part of Yemen is that. False flag attacks and false flag news reports – how do you sort them out. All without sources – someone heard from someone who heard from someone who thinks etc… If our radar can’t sort this out after this amount of time we should send them back home for more training and use old fashioned lookouts. Are soldiers are in great danger and costing us enough to fix our infrastructure, etc – pay off our national debt, health care …

  2. The USA Military knows who made those Drone attacks, but they’re not saying who. If it Really was Iran(and isn’t Iran guilty of everything, according to the psychopaths in the MIC?) The USA would show the world what actually happened, but, they won’t……It’s looking more and more like a “False Flag”, and, God knows, the USA has vast experience in False Flags………
    When you “CRY WOLF” too many times your CREDIBILITY is lost…….
