Not much to say about these Lusitania events. Pure raw evil. Get a little war going in some innocent country, then create an event that will make big headlines, then use the event to enlarge the war and kill millions of innocent people. Raw Satan.
The only interesting thing is to compare similar events that don't
start wars. Two neat little controlled experiments:
Experiment 1: America designed al-Qaeda as a chaos creator. It turned out to be remarkably efficient, perhaps running beyond its original contract, or perhaps not. One of those perhaps-above-contract events was the 1993 bombing of the WTC. Killed a few people and injured many, but didn't succeed in bringing down the building. The alleged government in DC gave a minor response, catching one or two members. The same thing was tried again in 2001. This time it succeeded, killing several thousand and taking out most of Goldman's main competitor Cantor Fitzgerald. This time the alleged government used the event to create new chaos, making endless wars in two unrelated countries.
Experiment 2: Within a few months, two airliners from the same airline were brought down intentionally, killing a few hundred people each time. The first one was dunked somewhere near Australia. Cause still unannounced, but not a mechanical failure. Maybe a missile, maybe intentional crashing by pilot. No response by governments. Second airliner crashed over Ukraine. Cause announced immediately, which tells us with 100% certainty that the governments who announced the cause had also created the cause. In this case the governments are pleased with the performance of the contract, and are using it to stir up a war that could become a full sized successor to WW1 and WW2.
Both experiments leave the major question unanswered. Why no response to the first try and huge response to the second try? Was the first try a dress rehearsal? A failed deliverable by the contractor? Or is the two-part pattern a technique of chaoscraft? Sort of like drilling a pilot hole before driving a woodscrew?

Later: This little item from Bloomberg,
about the possible bankruptcy of Malaysian Airlines, may indicate a more prosaic purpose of both operations. Just an ordinary Goldman transaction, maximizing profits on a derivative, with the usual collateral damage that gives Goldman its unmatched panache.
