Another entry in Wikipedia I think people should know about is False 
Flag Operation... Last week it was blatantly revealed that he British 
had been doing false flag operations in Basra.  Two British soldiers 
dressed in Iraqi civilian clothing were caught on a mission to plant 
bombs so as to generate hostility between Shiite and Sunni factions 
in Iraq... hence making or adding to a potential (if not already) 
civil war in the Anglo-Amerikan occupied country.

As Cascadians I believe we MUST be aware that imperialists (fascists) 
do really play these games.  I also believe that alot of so called 
eco-terrorism (not a word I often use) is actually false flag 
operations against environmentalists.  Setting forest workers against 
environmentalists while corporate crooks like Werehauser (sorry for 
the misspelling) use it to divide and conquer as they rob our 
bioregion of resourses.

False flag

False flag operations are covert operations conducted by governments, 
corporations, or other organizations, which are designed to appear as 
if they are being carried out by other entities. The name is derived 
from the military concept of flying false colors; that is, flying the 
flag of a country other than your own. This was considered acceptable 
provided one lowered the false flag and raised the national flag 
before engaging in battle. Auxiliary cruisers operated in such a 
fashion in both World Wars. In the most notable example, the German 
Kormoran raider surprised and sank the Australian light cruiser HMAS 
Sydney in 1941, causing the greatest loss of life on an Australian 
ship ever.

Another example of a false flag operation was the 1954 Lavon Affair, 
when Egyptian Jews recruited by Mossad firebombed a post office 
building and United States Information Services libraries at 
consulates in Cairo and Alexandria in an attempt to discredit the 
Egyptian government and disrupt British plans to withdraw from the 
Suez Canal. When one of the bombs exploded prematurely, the Egyptian 
police captured one of the bombers and soon afterwards the rest of 
the agents. The Israeli Defense Minister Pinhas Lavon was eventually 
forced to resign.

In the civilian world, similar operations are being employed in some 
less-ethical public relations campaigns.
