As I have written on a number of occasions, one of the hallmarks of a false flag attack is the presence of a military drill occurring shortly before or after the event in question. More so, the presence of a military drill occurring during the actual event is even more of a hallmark of the potential for the event to have been orchestrated by a national government for the purpose of using the incident in question both as propaganda and the justification for a pre-existing agenda.
At times, given the nature of the global world order in 2015, false flag events may be committed by a collection of countries and their security apparatus in order to blame the opposing collection of nations, a target nation, or a shadowy terrorist group that provides ample justification for whatever action the collective national organization desires.

With the crash of the Russian airliner over the Sinai Peninsula and the subsequent claims suggesting that the crash was due to the placement of a bomb on board the plane, one should already be suspicious of treachery related to the aftereffects of the explosion. This is particularly of interest in a case such as this – where Western/Israeli/NATO forces control the very terrorist organizations allegedly responsible for bombing the aircraft (if that is, in fact, what happened) and where Russia is one of the leaders in fighting those terrorist organizations and the hegemony of the Anglo-American establishment.
With that in mind, it is important to note that before, during, and after the Russian jet crashed, the Israeli military along with the United States, German, Austrian, British, French, Greek, and Polish militaries were engaged in a drill that involved a “fictional enemy state.” The drill was named “Blue Flag” and was the second Blue Flag exercise since 2013, when the exercise marked the largest drill the IAF had ever taken part in up to that time.
The IAF Captain in charge of the exercises stated that all participating militaries cooperated at every step of the way.
The exercise began on October 18 and was scheduled to run until November 5 according to the Times of Israel.
Those requests [from participating countries]came together to form the plan for “Blue Flag,” which sent Israeli and American F-15 squadrons, along with Israeli, Hellenic and Polish F-16 squadrons, flying through nearly all of Israel’s air space, firing simulated weapons against fictional enemy missile launchers, convoys and aircraft, he said.
Though the drill was intensive and demanding, it was designed more to test the mettle of the men and women behind the controls than to test the technical capabilities of the fighter jets themselves.
“We wanted it to be challenging for the airmen, rather than for the machines,” said the IAF captain, who cannot be named for security reasons.
In order to “put the airmen through their paces,” he explained, the people running the exercise tried to surprise them, putting them in situations where “the pilot doesn’t know where their target is coming from.”
While Defense News reported that the drill had been concluded by October 29, it describes the nature of the drill further. It states,
Hundreds of air warriors and technicians from Israel, the US, Greece and Poland concluded here Thursday a two-week drill designed to hone the type of joint planning, targeting and coordinated command-and-control demanded by coalitions operating in complex Mideast theaters.
It involved dozens of F-15 and F-16 fighters flying nearly 250 sorties over much of the country in scenarios that simulated air to air-battles and attacks on fixed and moving targets amid threats from surface-to-air missile batteries and shoulder-fired missiles.
While the drill took place mostly in the Arava desert, a location near the southern region of Israel, all available airspace over Israel was taken advantage of and “much of the country” was covered in the exercise.
To be clear, the fact that Israel conducted its air drill around the same time as the Russian plane crash is not a smoking gun of Israeli involvement in the tragedy. But it is highly suspicious to say the least, considering how many times in the past a military drill has been conducted shortly before, during, or after a major terrorist attack that is subsequently used for propaganda purposes.
It should also be made clear that, while Western countries have already decided that the explosion was due to a bomb placed on board the plane by ISIS, Russian investigators have displayed much cooler heads and have argued for a thorough investigation before any proclamations are made.
At best, this immediate declaration of an ISIS-based bomb is an attempt not to allow a tragedy to go to waste. At worst, the attack was perpetrated by Western/Israeli intelligence as a message to the Russian people to stay out of Syria, and the subsequent claims by ISIS merely being an attempt to gain control over the narrative before Russia’s cooler heads can express their findings. Regardless, if the plane was truly a victim of a bomb placed on board by a terrorist organization, the guilt will be on the hands of the Western regimes that have supported these organizations from day one.
