False flag attacks are not limited to the United States. They have been used throughout history as way for leaders to gain power and to mobilize public opinion. Another example of a false flag is what’s know as the Lavon Affair where the Israeli secret service set up a spy ring in Egypt with the purpose of blowing up US and British targets. The terrorist hits were to be blamed on the regime of Egyptian President Gamal Abdul Nasser, with the purpose of alienating the US and Britain from Egypt and Nasser and preventing Egyptian nationalization of the Suez Canal. While the Israelis were the ones carrying out these acts, the American, French, and British governments may have been partners in the plans since all of them were interested in the Suez Canal remaining in British hands.
