Iran-Thai Bomb Blast UpdateFebruary 22, 2012
By Tony Cartalucci
It was previously reported in "String of Global Bombings Blamed on Iran" that Thailand's current government is run by Thaksin Shinawatra by proxy through his own sister, Yingluck Shinawatra. Thaksin was a former Carlyle Group adviser, and recipient of extensive US backing, including lobbying services from fellow Carlyle member James Baker and his firm Baker Botts, warmonger Robert Blackwill of Barbour Griffith & Rogers, and PNAC signatory Kenneth Adelman of Edelman. During Thaksin's term in office from 2001 until a coup ousted him in 2006, upon the eve of which he was literally reporting to the Council on Foreign Relations in New York, he had committed Thai troops to the US invasion of Iraq and allowed the CIA to use Thailand for its abhorrent rendition program.
It was suggested that he would mobilize fully to back US-Israeli propaganda. Within 24 hours, Thailand's police concluded, predictably, that the Iranians were targeting Israeli diplomats in Bangkok.
This conclusion was drawn by the very top of Thailand's police, General Preawpand Damapong, US-proxy Thaksin Shinawatar's brother-in-law, appointed as police chief shortly after Thaksin's own sister took office last July, with much support from Wall Street & London. This conclusion has now been repeatedly reported on Thaksin's "Voice TV," "sponsored" by AIS, of which his Shinawatra Group holds a majority share in and sister Yingluck was a managing director of, as well as SC Asset, of which sister Yingluck Shinawatra was CEO before taking office as PM, handing the reins over to Thaksin's daughter.
"Voice TV" would refer to the Iranians as "Arabs," another clue that no serious thought or analysis was put into examining the recent incident in Bangkok and that it was merely an exercise in backing US directives - as Iranians are Indo-Europeans, not Arabs, speak an entirely different language (Farsi) and have a distinctively different history, culture, social disposition, as well as a series of noticeably different ethno-physiological characteristics.

Thaksin's sister ran for office within her brother's political party, "Peua Thai," with a motto that literally read, "Thaksin thinks, Peua Thai does." What has resulted is a proxy government serving US interests just as Thaksin did during his 2001-2006 term as PM. (click image to enlarge)
Despite US policy papers, including Brookings Institution's "Which Path to Persia," openly conspiring to provoke war with Iran and subsidize an army of listed terrorists to pressure Iran into reacting, as well as reports out of the Daily Mail confirming Israeli involvement with these very groups, in particular, US State Department listed terrorist organization, the People's Mujahedin of Iran, also known as Mujahedeen e-Khalq (MEK), and a clear answer to the question of "cui bono?," it appears as if a "global consensus" has been reached - that Iran has carried out these suspicious, provocative, and entirely pointless attacks that only serve to give the West the "casus belli" they have sought after for so long.
Photo: Dazed and confused. An Iranian suspect is paraded by Thai police around the crime scene in downtown Bangkok. It is highly unlikely he is the member of Iran's elite Quds forces, or Hezbollah who in 2006 stopped-dead an Israeli mechanized invasion into southern Lebanon, or a member of MEK, who has carried out a successful campaign of terror against Iran for decades. More probable is that he is a patsy, approached by Mossad and Farsi-speaking MEK operatives posing as Quds forces, who walked him through his ultimately doomed, provocative, pointless, and incriminating attack.
However, what appears to have taken place in Bangkok, and what appears to be the case unfolding in India and Georgia as well, was a false-flag operation carried out by Mossad and Farsi-speaking MEK agents posing as Iranian Quds operatives who approached potential patsies. These patsies were trained and provided with faulty equipment to carry out these attacks. After making their respective failed attempts, the patsies would incriminate themselves and Tehran by attempting to return to Iran, or confess upon capture and interrogation that they were working for who they believed to be Quds operatives.
Far from a theory, Foreign Policy magazine has recently reported that indeed Israel's Mossad regularly pose as American spies to recruit MEK agents who then carry out their campaign of terror with connections leading back to the US, not Israel. While the information in FP's report was most likely published in an attempt to bifurcate US-Israeli interests for plausible deniability ahead of a "unilateral" Israeli attack (as described in Brookings' "Which Path to Persia?"), it does illustrate that false flag operations are not only real, but common place within Western intelligence operations.
With examples of America's FBI leading patsies through terrorist operations from A-Z within the United States, the most recent case of this entrapment featuring a "suicide bomber" who attempted to detonate an FBI-provided inert explosives vest in the US Capitol, and with examples of such operations being switched "live" at the last moment, as was the case in 1993's World Trade Center attack, accidentally or otherwise, it is clear that both the US and Israel have well established programs and networks for carrying out these false-flag attacks domestically and abroad. In fact, it has become a routine matter.
The consensus the US and Israel enjoy is not the consensus of fellow sovereign nations objectively examining the evidence and concurring with their predetermined conclusions, but rather, as is clearly the case in Thailand regarding the nepotistic Shinawatra family, a series of indebted puppet regimes propped up in exchange for shameless support for Wall Street & London's global ambitions.
The exactitude and speed with which US-proxy Thaksin Shinawatra's political and propaganda machines lept into action within hours of the Bangkok incident can surely not be the result of a careful investigation weighing all evidence and possibilities before drawing conclusions in one afternoon. It not only indicates how desperately the West is attempting to destroy the sovereign nation-state of Iran, but how far they've already gone in destroying the sovereignty of nation's like Thailand. It is expected that the US will reciprocate for this act of loyalty in coming months as Thaksin and his political machine gear up to once again destroy entirely the remnants of nationalist elements within Thailand.
