Los Angeles Fire “Intentional”

The LA Fire and 9/11 – there are some very interesting reports coming out of Los Angeles this evening following one the biggest fires in the city’s history (click here to read what we wrote about it when it first happened [1]).  According to a report in The Los Angeles Times, titled “L.A. fire officials: Downtown fire may have been intentionally set” [2]:

Los Angeles fire officials said they are “inclined” to believe a fire that engulfed a massive residential development project downtown was intentionally set.  But until arson investigators can enter the wreckage, it’s impossible to determine the cause, which could take several days.

“Certainly one of the things we lean toward is ‘was it intentionally set?'” LAFD Deputy Chief Joseph Castro said at a news conference Monday afternoon.

One of the most noticeable and immediate things that people are noticing is the media’s handling of the situation.   Although the pictures of the charred buildings do, indeed, remind one of the images of the melted steel beams of 9/11, the fact that the media is already beating the drum of a connection between 9/11 and the LA fire is not only worrying, but disturbing on a few different levels.

WHY Is The Media Comparing The LA Fire and 9/11?

The LA Fire and 9/11 seem to not have much in common besides the part where building were on fire, but there is a long, long line between a city fire and whatever happened on that fateful September day in 2001.

Respected Los Angeles local news station KTLA ran a report [3] on the incident (video below), and in the video, the reporter literally says the words:

One of the buildings looked like the World Trade Center [as it was burning]

Unbelievable… then, a firefighter who was interviewed in the clip is shown, fire blazing behind him, saying:

This looked like something out of 9/11

Take a look at the short video for yourself:

Damage Called “Historical”

According to KTLA [3], three skyscrapers burned to the ground, two of the main freeways for Los Angeles have been damaged, causing more traffic than usual, and lots of damage has been done to the surround half mile radius.

According to an article in USA Today titled “Possible ‘foul play’ probed in massive L.A. fire” [4], by journalists John Bacon and William M. Welch, USA TODAY:

Some 250 firefighters battled the blaze, which broke out about 1:20 a.m. PT and could be seen for miles. It created traffic problems that lasted through the morning commute.

“This is a historic fire, what we as firefighters would call a career fire. It’s huge,” Fire Department spokesman David Ortiz told NBC News. “I really can’t remember a building fire this big and I have been with the department for 13 years.

The Hunt Is On

In that same USA Today article [4], “The cause of the fire that took up an entire city block was under investigation as a possible criminal act, The Los Angeles Times reported.

‘There may have been some foul play,” fire Capt. Jaime Moore told the Times.

Dogs trained to sniff for accelerant were on the scene as part of the investigation into the fire, which burned quickly through the building’s wooden frame.”

The Los Angeles Times goes on to add [2]: Investigators will collect samples, review video surveillance and canvass the site to determine the cause of the fire and find the origin. They have yet to enter the building because it’s structurally unsafe and its charred skeleton was still too hot.

John D’Angelo, the assistant special agent in charge of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in Los Angeles, said ATF agents are helping with the investigation as part of a Southern California task force.

Several detectives from the LAPD’s Major Crimes division were working with arson investigators “to assist with whatever the Fire Department needs,” said LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith.

The Reichstag Fire of 1933 in Germany

What will be interesting to see is, exactly, who this fire is blamed on.  The world powers have been in need of an event, it seems, to potentially start another World War, and, although this may not yet seem to be as global as such tragic events as The September 11 or London Bombing attacks, historically, big buildings catching on fire that seemed to be isolated events have been later looked at as the proverbial “starting domino” towards war.

Such is the case with The Nazi’s rise to power and The Reichstag Fire of 1933.  According to The Holocaust Memorial Museum’s online “Holocaust Encyclopedia” (yes, such a thing exists} [5]:

On February 27, 1933, the German parliament (Reichstag) building burned down due to arson. The government falsely portrayed the fire as part of a Communist effort to overthrow the state.

Now many people have compared the 1933 fire to what happened on 9/11 and the subsequent US PATRIOT ACT, with most of our freedoms being taken away.  However what many fail to realize is that, although it was a German Parliament building, when it initially occurred, it was not on a scale comparable to 9/11… however, an I realize they are apartment buildings that burned, but it is neither here nor there depending on who they blame.

Again, I repeat: it doesn’t matter what buildings burned in the Los Angeles fire last night, what will matter is who they blame the fire on and what political gains they could garner from such blame. (Read that last sentence a few times and let it sink in.

Following the 1933 Reichstag building fire, according to the Holocaust Encyclopedia:  Though the origins of the fire are still unclear, in a propaganda maneuver, the coalition government (Nazis and the German Nationalist People’s Party) blamed the Communists.

They exploited the Reichstag fire to secure President von Hindenburg’s approval for an emergency decree, the Decree for the Protection of the People and the State of February 28.

Popularly known as the Reichstag Fire Decree, the regulations suspended the right to assembly, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and other constitutional protections, including all restraints on police investigations.

The US Has Been Preparing For A Terrorist City Building Fire

With all of that in mind, allow me to point you to a manual from West Point Academy [6] (the most prestigious American military university, possibly the most prestigious military academy in the world), entitled “Fire As A Weapon In Terrorist Attacks” [7].  In the manual, (which I highly recommend you read when and if the LA Fire and 9/11 are put together like bees and honey by the government and our corporate controlled media), they write:

In May 2012, FDNY began collaboration with a group from the U.S. Army that specialize in rapid solutions to current and anticipated problems on the battlefield.

As with the FBI, a series of meetings, training modules and tabletop exercises led to the group’s February 2013 “Red Team” paper on Fire and Smoke as a Weapon, envisioning a Mumbai-style attack in a hypothetical Manhattan office building in an attempt to gauge emergency responder preparedness related to this novel attack method.

READ THAT AGAIN TEN TIMES, because what they are saying in this “terrorism preparedness manual” is that a likely “pre-scenario” to a major attack would be for Terrorists to LIGHT FIRE to a few city buildings in order to “judge the response of emergency responders” and to evaluate their preparedness.

A comparison of the day after both the Reichstag and The Los Angeles Fires with onlookers passing by the sites.

Last night, according to Los Angeles KTLA [3], the reporter notes out of the 160 fire departments in LA County, 37 of them responded to the fire with almost 250 men.  THAT IS ALMOST 25% OF THE ENTIRE LOS ANGELES COUNTY FIRE MANPOWER!

That can be read two ways to a terrorist: ‘If we light a city block on fire over here, then 25% of the responders will be so focused on that, we can go do something horrific’ OR it can be read as ‘well, only 25% – 23.125% to be precise – of LA’s manpower responded, so we’re in pretty great shape to cause a massive attack’.

Either way is bad.  


Maybe everything above is wrong – let’s pray that it is, and I’m just being an over-analytical writer who is a conspiracy nut.  The problem with this is that, even if the fire was innocently (meaning it wasn’t criminally or on purpose) set – it doesn’t matter.  That’s the world we live in – we are at the moment, at the mercy of whatever the media and government say about the LA fire.

Even worse, whether we believe The LA fire and 9/11 connection and it is trumped out to be some terrorist attack – we will most likely go to war with whatever invisible monster that has been created by our corporate controlled media and power hungry, psychopathic government leaders.  Therein lies the true problem.
