The attack occurred just days after two supposed car bombs failed to detonate in the heart of London but there are significant differences between this and other attacks - two arrests were instantly made at the scene plus there were hundreds of witnesses and CCTV. However the most important difference is the suicidal behavior of the attacker who was seen pouring petrol not just over the car but also himself in an apparent bid to kill himself in a ball of flames - perhaps taking out a few cops at the same time.
This appears to be a significant change. Not only are these attackers incompetent in terms of bomb building, concentrating instead on attempting a dramatic arson attack, but they choose a method of attack which gives themselves negligible chance of escape. This is completely at odds with your typical 'false flag' operation as it actually requires those responsible to be killed or captured, not a job many in MI5 etc would volunteer for.
However, the target of the attack remains typically uninspired and ill considered for a terrorist organization with a (quite valid) grudge against the British government and it's military and security forces. I'm always surprised how unimaginative these supposed dangerous terrorists seem to be when it comes to choosing targets for attacks. Do they try to assassinate our politicians or murder our military personnel in easy targets like pubs in Plymouth? Do they attack electricity and telecommunications infrastructure or water supplies? No, they invariably target insignificant ordinary people and yet surely they realise that the government has no real interest in well being of such people.
But I digress. While the media play to the governments agenda of trying to big up the threat and the terror, the 'truth movement' discredit themselves further and further with their conspiratorial 'false flag' speculations. Like the boy who cried wolf only backwards, those who cry 'false flag' in response to every terrorist incident, they are also guilty of advancing the agendas of those in power. As the 'truth movement' becomes and attracts more and more delusional paranoids, more and more people shy away from them and we get further and further from any hope at revealing the truth.
