Is False-Flag Attack On US Navy Ship Next?

Aircraft Carrier U.S.S. Harry S. Truman (Photo by Michael W. Pendergrass/U.S. Navy/Getty Images)

Written by Nick; Originally appeared at the Saker blog

The USS Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group left the east coast Naval Station Norfolk, VA on 11th April.

The aircraft carrier is accompanied by the guided-missile cruiser USS Normandy, the guided-missile destroyers USS Burke, Bulkeley, Forest Sherman and Farragut, and the destroyers USS Jason and The Sullivans. The strike group carries 6,500 sailors and Carrier Air Wing One.

Recent announcements about Russia’s hypersonic Kinzhal (‘Dagger’) missile system having made these vessels effectively obsolete, this means that the ships and their crews are essentially being sailed into a bloody scrapyard.

Even without the recent upgrading of the Kinzhal system, the experience of the British fleet in the Falklands conflict illustrates the vulnerability of warships to low-flying missiles. In addition to the sinking of the HMS Sheffield and Sir Galahad, virtually every British ship was hit by at least one of Argentinian’s French-made Exocet missiles – a weapons system which was already 20 years old at the time.

Exocet missile sinks HMS Sheffield during Falklands War:

Reportedly the only thing that saved the UK force from obliteration was that the Argentinians had got their missile altimeter settings wrong. The Russians will not make the same sort of error!

These facts are of course known to the US military planners and – one would assume and hope, for it is duty to know – by Donald Trump. And yet the US fleet is now nearing the coast of Syria, where it will met up with American and other NATO warships already in position. Together, they will make one big flock of sitting ducks.

If the people pushing Trump manage to get him launch a new strike on Syria (and we must expect a new false flag attack) and if the massive increase in NATO firepower means that enough missiles get through to enough targets to kill Russians, then Putin really has no choice but to sink the US fleet.

No choice because, whatever the danger of doing so, failure to respond would signal Russian defeat and retreat in Syria, which would of course lead to a rapid escalation of military pressure against Lebanon and Iran, and mean that when the Empire then rolls on to strike Russia, her most reliable allies will already have gone and her ‘soft underbelly’ will be seriously exposed.

So Putin orders the destruction of the US fleet, and an hour later all that is left is debris and mangled corpses in some oil slicks – and some ‘great’ photos and video clips to illustrate Trump’s declaration of war on account of “Russia’s deadly sneak attack on a US humanitarian force”.

Sounds familiar? It should do. Because we’re not just thinking here of the USS Maine, the Lusitania and the Gulf of Tonkin. The Washington habit of using sunken ships as the causus belli also of course included Pearl Harbor.

Just in case you need a reminder, here’s just one example of the many short videos out there on the truth about the Japanese attack on 7th December 1941 which explain how Roosevelt had advance intelligence of the planned attack, but decided not to pass it on to the anchored sitting duck fleet:

The more or less official excuse (the President’s guilt never having been formally acknowledged) is that to have alerted the fleet would also have tipped off the Japanese that their naval codes had already been broken. But the truth is of course that deliberately didn’t warn the fleet because he knew that the sacrifice would goad the American people into a war against Hitler to which he and those around and behind him were committed, but which the American people opposed.

The circumstances this time are of course somewhat different, not least that everyone with even a passing knowledge of the Russian missile capability already knows that 6,500 sailors are “on their way to Samara”.

Which makes Donald Trump either a criminally incompetent fool, a bad poker player or a wholly controlled puppet of the psychotic Anglo-Zionist elite. If he is one of the first two of these, then there is of course still a chance that he might respond to the disaster by blinking and retreating. In which case, the Beltway elite will use the human tragedy and his humiliation to remove him from office (not a bad consolation prize, from their point of view).

But if he is the third, then the ‘shock’ blitz on the US fleet will lead to the immediate declaration of World War Three.

Indeed, if things get that far (and we’re probably 48 hours and one White Helmets’ video away from it) then the only thing that realistically stands a chance of stopping the racist Anglo-Zionist psychopaths in their tracks is if the Russian attack and its result are such a devastating show of ‘shock and awe’ as to make it impossible for them to ignore a simultaneous public warning by Putin to Netanyahu that any further US hostile response will place Israel directly in the firing line as well.

That might JUST be enough to make the Neocons back off. If not, then World War Three it will be. It might not go nuclear straight away, but even while it is conventional EVERYTHING will change:

Dissident anti-war voices such as this will rapidly be silenced by blanket censorship and internment; your sons and daughters will be conscripted; your taxes will go through the roof – and you will have to live with the ever-present fear that, once China enters the war against Washington and its client states, the tide will run so fast against the ‘democratic allies’ that their ‘humanitarian missiles’ will end up with nuclear tips.

If that disturbs you (and it surely should) then all I ask is that you take the Pearl Harbor analogy and get busy spreading it on social media RIGHT NOW. Because once those young sailors and airmen have been sacrificed, the demand for a war of ‘revenge’ will be unstoppable. But if the warmongers realize that plenty of people have already understood the plan, it might just spook them into backing off.

In which case the fleet can do a few face-saving manoeuvres and then sail home again and we can look forward to a summer which may be warm, but not as uncomfortably hot as it could otherwise become!

    The usual scenario by US ant NATO HQ used tactics to eliminate own troops !

  • MADE MAKER

    ALL OPTION ON TABLE with USA KILL THEIR OWN and SAY SOMEONE ELSE DID IT

    • jerry hamilton

      Possible. Israel could not launch a successful missile attack at a ship from Occupied Palestine but they could from a submarine.
      Even if it was known the zionists did it, the media would tell a different story.
      Since most Americans want to believe that Russia did it, the media would be successful.
      But what then can America do? Not much at all.
      The question is….. How mad are the zionists next door?

      • HardHawk

        I dont think it is a case of madness, but a case of the whole western economic system is imploding which is completely natural and predictable that this would have happen as is for any system that is based on debt.

        So it is not a case of madness rather is a case of losing everything including their existence, so the logic is if they going down they take either all with them or as many as they can.

            I did. The topsy turvy world we live in today is as devoid of any common sense , such as we witness from the past.

            There have been and will always be the disadvantaged, the sick and the average citizen who only desire peace, food, a home, personal security and the health care available .

            Instead our venal leaders who plunder our collective wealth, seek to fight with other venal leaders to plunder their and their citizens wealth.

            Just imagine the world today without war and the constructive use the cost of war could be put to?

            There will always be the Pol Pot’s, Netenyahu’s et al and their insane followers and in a just world these people would be ‘struck down ‘as soon as they exhibited the traits of such malevolence toward others.

          • jerry hamilton

            Well said.

    • sam_koll

      911 proved you right. Chenney ,Bush etc murdered over 3000 of their own people. And if that isn’t enough to drive home the point, remember the USS Liberty. google the interviews those American servicemen have given. Makes me condemn the criminals we have in western gov’t and agencies going back to JFK

      Not the first time they did that and will not be the last either. To them all populations under their control are expendable and meat for their grinding machines.

My brother tells me that Mossad teams have been very active in buying up land and farms in Southern Chile south of Puerto Montt to as far south as Patagonia.and have been doing so for the past 10 years, Their landholding is now huge and no one knows precisely wny they are doing this and where all the funding is coming from. The “teams” are very secretive and all under 30 years old and say their ex Israeli Army.

            What is Israël’s project in Argentina?
            by Thierry Meyssan
            The Argentinian authorities are wondering about the massive purchase of land in Patagonia by a British billionaire, and the « holidays » that tens of thousands of Israëli soldiers are enjoying on his property.

            VOLTAIRE NETWORK | BEIRUT (LEBANON) | 12 DECEMBER 2017

            Owner of 175 companies, including restaurant chains and Tottenham Hotspur football club – whose fans call themselves the « Yid Army » – the very discreet billionaire Joe Lewis speculates on the exchange market in partnership with his friend George Soros.
            In the 19th century, the British government were undecided as to where they should settle Israël – either in what is now Uganda, in Argentina or in Palestine. In fact, Argentina was at that time controlled by the United Kingdom and, on the initiative of French baron Maurice de Hirsch, had become a land of refuge for Jews who were fleeing the pogroms in central Europe.

            In the 20th century, after the military coup d’Etat against democratically elected President General Juan Perón, a current of antisemitism developed within the armed forces. A brochure was distributed accusing the new State of Israël of preparing an invasion of Patagonia, the « Andinia Plan ».

            It has become apparent today that even though the Argentinian extreme right had exaggerated the facts in the 1970’s, there was indeed a project for implantation (and not invasion) in Patagonia.

            Everything changed with the Falklands War in 1982. At that time, the Argentinian military junta attempted to recuperate the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands, which from their point of view had been occupied by the British for a century and a half. The UNO recognised the legitimacy of the Argentinian claim, but the Security Council condemned the use of force to recover these territories. The stakes are considerable, since the territorial waters of these archipelagos offer access to all the riches of the Antarctic continent.

            At the end of this war, which cost more than a thousand lives (official British figures are largely understated), London imposed a particularly severe Peace Treaty on Buenos Aires – Argentinian armed forces are limited to their most simple expression. Above all, the control of their Southern and Antarctic air space is confiscated for the profit of the Royal Air Force, and they are obliged to inform the United Kingdom about all their operations.

            In 1992 and 1994, two particularly devastating, murderous and mysterious attacks successively destroyed the Israëli embassy and the headquarters of the Israëli association AMIA. The first attack took place when the station chiefs of Israëli Intelligence had just left the building. The second occurred in the context of joint Egypt-Argentinian research for the development of Condor ballistic missiles. In the same period, the main Condor factory exploded, and the sons of Presidents Carlos Menem and Hafez el-Assad died accidentally. The various enquiries gave rise to a succession of manipulations.

            After having blamed Syria, prosecutor Alberto Nisman turned on Iran, whom he accused of having ordered the two attacks, and Hezbollah, who he claimed had carried them out. The ex- Peronist President Cristina Kirchner was accused of having negotiated the end of the legal proceedings against Iran in exchange for advantageous oil prices. Prosecutor Nisman was found dead at his home, and President Kirchner was found guilty of high treason. However, last week, a coup de theâtre destroyed everything we though we knew – the United States FBI handed over DNA analyses which attest to the absence of the presumed terrorist among the victims, and the presence of a body which has never been identified. 25 years later, we know nothing more about these attacks.

            In the 21st century, benefitting from the advantages offered them by the Falklands War Treaty, the United Kingdom and Israël are now setting up a new project Patagonia.

            British billionaire Joe Lewis has acquired immense territories in the South of Argentina and even neighbouring Chile. His properties cover areas several times larger than the State of Israël. They are situated in Tierra del Fuego, at the extreme Southern point of the continent. In particular, they surround the Lago Escondido, which effectively denies access to the entire region, despite a legal injunction.

            The billionaire has built a private airport with a two kilometre landing strip, in order to be able to receive civil and military aircraft.

            Since the Falklands War, the Israëli army has been organising « holiday camps » (sic) in Patagonia for its soldiers. Between 8,000 and 10,000 of them now come every year to spend two weeks on Joe Lewis’ land.

            While in the 1970’s, the Argentinian army noted the construction of 25,000 empty houses, which gave rise to the myth of the Andinia Plan, hundreds of thousands have been built today.

            It is impossible to verify the state of the construction work, since these are private lands, and Google Earth has neutralised the satellite photographs of the area, just as it does with NATO’s military installations.

            Neighbouring Chile has handed over a submarine base to Israël. Tunnels have been dug in order to survive the polar winter.

            The Mapuche Indians who inhabit both Argentinian and Chilean Patagonia were surprised to learn that the Resistencia Ancestral Mapuche (RAM) had been reactivated in London. This is a mysterious organisation which fights for independence. First accused of being an old association recuperated by the Argentinian secret services, the RAM is today considered by the left as a legitimate secessionist movement, but by the Mapuche leaders as an initiative financed by George Soros.

            On 15 November 2017, the Navy lost all contact with the submarine ARA San Juan, which was finally declared lost at sea. It was one of the TR 1700 class diesel-electric submarines which were the flagships of the reduced Argentinian army. The Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organisation (CTBTO) has announced that it has recorded an unusual acoustic phenomenon in the Atlantic, close to the area from which the San Juan sent its last signal. The government finally admitted that the submarine was on a non-specified « secret mission », of which London had been informed. The USA began a search, while the Russian Navy deployed a drone capable of exploring the ocean to a depth of 6,000 metres, but found nothing. The San Juan probably exploded. The Argentinian Press is convinced that the submarine had either collided with a mine, or was destroyed by an enemy torpedo.

            It is impossible for the moment to determine if Israël is engaged in a programme for the exploitation of Antarctica, or if it is building a rear base in case of defeat in Palestine.

            False Flag Attacks in Argentina: 1992 and 1994

            http://www.voltairenet.org/article162474.html

            by Adrian Salbuchi, James Fetzer

            Coinciding with Thierry Meyssan’s earlier conclusions and with those of other Argentinian investigators [*], economist and globalization expert Adrian Salbuchi chronicles the events that shook Buenos Aires in 1992 and 1994, contouring their flagrant false-flag characteristics and irrefutable Israeli footprint, and connecting them to a wider pattern of similar “terrorist attacks”. Far from being fortuitous, Salbuchi offers a coherent picture in which all these events tie in with a broader scheme for global economic and military domination.

            Adrian Salbuchi was interviewed by Dr. James H. Fetzer, founder of Scholars for 9/11 Truth and host of “The Real Deal”, who spoke at The National Library of Argentina on 11 September 2009. It was Fetzer’s second visit to Buenos Aires to participate in a 9/11 commemorative event.

            Site of former Israeli Embassy in the corner of Arroyo and Suipacha Streets in Buenos Aires.

            The interview:

            James Fetzer: My special guest today is Adrian Salbuchi of Argentina, host of the Buenos Aires radio talk-show, “Bienvenidos a la Jungla” (“Welcome to the Jungle”), and founder of the Argentine Second Republic Movement (Movimiento por la Segunda República Argentina). He is author of several books on geopolitics, that include “El Cerebro del Mundo: la Cara Oculta de la Globalización” (“The World’s Mastermind: The Hidden Face of Globalization”) and “Bienvenidos a la Jungla: Dominio y Supervivencia en el Nuevo Orden Mundial” (“Welcome to the Jungle: Domination and Survival in the New World Order”).

            Today, we are discussing the alleged terrorists attacks in Buenos Aires in 1992 and 1994.

            Adrian, welcome to “The Real Deal”!

            Adrian Salbuchi: Thank you, Jim. Good Evening to you, and thanks for having me on your show.

            JF: Why don’t you give us a brief sketch of the two deadly attacks in central Buenos Aires, one on the Israeli Embassy in 1992 and the other, on the Jewish Community Center in 1994, to orient our audience.

            AS: Argentina suffered its worst terrorist bomb attacks, which targeted two specific buildings in downtown Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina, those years. The first took place in March 1992, and completely demolished the Israeli Embassy, with 29 people dead. The second one similarly brought down the headquarters of the AMIA Jewish Mutual Association in July 1994, and killed 86 people.

            Both attacks took our country by surprise, as we had not seen such dreadful acts since Argentina was targeted by international guerrilla movements in the seventies, nor have we had anything like that ever since. We are, as a people, a veritable melting pot bringing together myriads of immigrants and ethnic groups living peacefully side-by-side with little or no racial or religious conflict.

            These two attacks occurred under the administration of former president Carlos Menem, who was closely aligned with US global policies (George Bush Senior was President of the US at the time) and, by extension, with the policies of the State of Israel and of global Zionist organizations.

            Notably, in both cases, the government and the media immediately placed the blame squarely on alleged “Islamic Fundamentalist Terror Groups” who were supposed to have used car bombs to blow up both buildings. As the years went by, however, any “Islamic Terror Group” links became weaker and increasingly ambiguous. Neither of the alleged car-bomb vehicles were ever found. Today, these two cases have become paradigms of systematic interference by a wide array of pressure groups acting upon our government, the courts and, through the media, on public opinion.

            Notably, such leverage – extreme at times – was brought to bear by local and foreign Zionist organizations, local and international media, NGO’s, and “eminent individuals”, whose opinions bear much weight and – last but not least – the embassies of foreign powers, notably, the United States and the State of Israel.

            JF: What were the differences between the explosions at the Embassy and at the AMIA, if they were not identical?

            AS: Well, the earlier case involving the Israeli Embassy has suffered a gradual information black-out as time has passed for various “understandable reasons”, at least, from a Zionist standpoint. To begin with, because the target was the embassy of a foreign power, understandably Israel had a strong influence on actions that were taken and the dissemination of information.

            However, the case for a car bomb melted away when the State Prosecutor and the Court hearing on this case invited technical specialist surveyors from the Argentine National Engineers Academy to determine what caused the Israeli Embassy building to collapse. Their conclusion was that the explosion took place from inside the building and was not caused by an alleged car-bomb. To make matters worse for Zionist pressure groups, a passer-by had filmed from several blocks away the mushroom cloud that rose from that explosion, a characteristic effect that also pointed to an internal explosion.

            JPEG – 21.7 kb

            1992 bomb attack at the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires.

            The embassy building was in a very densely populated part of Buenos Aires and, although the shock wave broke glass windows and plaster of practically all the buildings across the street from the Embassy – even blowing-in a vitreaux of a church across the street, which sadly fell on a priest and killed him – the only building structurally affected was the Embassy itself. Clearly, we either had a car bomb with an unrealistically selective shock wave or the explosion took place inside the building and there was no car bomb.

            There are many other signs that point to this conclusion. Probably, for this reason, the case of the Embassy was mentioned less and less frequently by the media, especially after strong rumours surfaced that what actually blew up was an arsenal that the Israelis apparently had housed in the building’s basement. At the time of the explosion, a group of Israeli Labour Government officers were meeting to discuss matters pertaining to the recently initiated Madrid Peace Conference process, but “luckily” left the building just before the explosion. The same occurred with the Ambassador himself who, fortuitously, also happened to depart the premises before the blast.

            A very different situation altogether has arisen with the circumstances surrounding the second and more deadly attack on the AMIA building, which has always received very high profile coverage in the local and even some international media to this very day. In contrast with the Embassy, this building housed a private, Argentine organization AMIA, and its sister political organization, DAIA. Those killed were all Argentine citizens, and the whole tragedy fell strictly under Argentine jurisdiction. And yet, on the very same day the explosion took place, then President Carlos Menem officially requested the assistance of the FBI and CIA from the United States and the Mossad intelligence service and the armed forces of Israel.

            JPEG – 22.7 kb

            AMIA building after 1994 attack.

            In the ensuing chaos amidst the rubble, tempers ran very high with local police when Israeli Army intelligence officers planted an Israeli flag in the rubble. Almost immediately, those same Israelis “luckily” found a piece of the alleged car-bomb – a white Renault ‘Trafic” van – that “luckily” just happened to have the manufacturer’s serial number on it. This was reminiscent of other highly unlikely but “lucky” finds, such as the FBI’s locating one alleged suicide bomber intact passport in the rubble of the World Trade Center just after 9/11!

            From the beginning, the AMIA case has been riddled with corruption, fraud and lies, inconsistencies, even flagrant contradictions and crime in the highest places. The case has gone through seven Federal courts. A special “AMIA Department” was actually set up by the Judiciary to house literally hundreds of thousands of pages of declarations, evidence, reports, surveys, studies, accusations and counteraccusations that have built up over the more than fifteen years that have lapsed since the attack occurred.

            For a number of years, the case was heard in the District Court presided by a Federal Judge by the name of Juan Galeano, who was so weak – if not downright stupid – that he allowed himself to be coaxed and pressured by local Zionist organizations – the AMIA and DAIA themselves – into authorizing payment of a 400,000 USD kickback to a shady used-car dealer by the name of Carlos Telleldín, who had sold the alleged car bomb van to alleged Hizbollah operatives in return for his formally accusing three Buenos Aires Police officers of being the “local connection” that would lead first to Syria, then to Hizbollah, and finally to Iran.

            The money for that 400,000 USD kickback was provided by the then-president of the DAIA, Rubén Beraja through his (now defunct) bank Banco Mayo. Beraja recently spent several years in jail because of the fraudulent collapse of that bank. But, to understand how these global power networks actually work, let me point out that before that, in 1996, when Paul Volcker set up a so-called “Commission of Eminent Persons” to “investigate” dormant Jewish accounts in major Swiss Banks – through which they extracted more than 1.25 billion USD from those banks –, he (Volker) actually chose as one of the “eminent persons” to sit on the Commission the very same shady character, Rubén Beraja.

            The corruption, wheeling and dealing got so bad that, under the Kirchner government, it was decided to scrap everything and “start from scratch”, which we would soon discover actually meant using the CIA and the Mossad to fabricate false accusations against Iran. That’s where we stand today.

            Etc., etc., etc…

          70% land of Syria has been liberated from US and NATO terrorist forces. This is nightmare for them. Now they see their worst defeat in Syria. East Ghouta and Eastern Qalamoun have been liberated from US and NATO terrorist forces. Now they see that Yarmouk and Rastan are just two week job for SAA and their allies.

  • Joe

    Very unlikely in my opinion.

    While the Russians will loathe sinking a US ship with their powerful missiles, I believe this job will begiven to the Syrians and /Iranians if US continues to attack without any regard to logic.

    The reason Russia supply the S300 to Syria is to avoid an official Russia/US conflict and let the Syrians sink the US ships with anti ships while protected in the air after being attacked. Of course the US will retaliate massively against Syria .. which we know would not be effective unless US has complete air superiority over Syria. Even that is doubtful seeing and know what happens in Lebanon 2006 and US would run out of Ammo very fast.

    For well prepared countries cruise missiles are not effective to do much damage to the military as has been proven .

    Ships based force are really not a powerful force in modern warfare really.

    In the event of say a war between Russia and US .. it would still be in Russia’s favour as Russia is land based while US is too far away . No one can defeat US in US mainland and it is also true no one can defeat Russia and land near to Russia ie. Europe.

    In the ME it would be Iran that would control when allied with Russia and China.

    China would take Asia .. so in the end US controls America , Russia Europe and China Asia … and the world will live like that.

    That’s how the WW3 will end if they have not destroyed each other with nukes.

    • goingbrokes

      I enjoyed your piece!

  • Paul Barbara

    Very good article – bringing out previous ‘False Flags’ and hoaxes used as ‘casus belli’.
    But why, oh why, does Russia not openly and publicly remind the world (and teach ordinary folk, who may not even have heard of it) of ‘Operation Gladio’, where atrocities were committed (mostly in Europe) by CIA-organised right wing (often Fascist and ex-Nazi) groups, but blamed on Left-wing groups (Bologna train station bombings, Brabant massacres) which would show just how far the CIA and other Western intelligence agencies will go in trying to frame their ‘ennemi du jours’?

    • jerry hamilton

      Possibly because the media would not report it?

  • AJ

    No need for a false flag the US navy will just have another collision with a tug boat!

    • Nigel Maund

      LOL :DDDD

  • Harald Meling

    Even USS Normandy they have brought in for the symbolic effect. The False Flag may then be staged to motivate an amfibious invasion on the Syrian coast, like June – 44.
    The FF attack on one or more US vessels is blamed on Iran (maybe Iranian passports left inside an unexploded torpedo?) which is the final goal of the “humanitarian invasion”.

    • Joe

      No it would not happen. No army today will dare to invade Syria so long as Iran and Russia is supporting Syria.

      All talks about US/Israel planning this or that are doomed to failure for certainty.

      There is just no force currently in place big enough to invade Syria.

      Notice that till today most of the fighting are not by any western forces . The fighting are done by foolish Muslim jihadists . Western armies like US or Israel really would not fight without full air superiority which is not possible in Syria.
      So any talk about invading Iran or Syria etc are all big bull.

      • AlexanderAmproz

        US Madness and Arrogant selfishness is unlimited !

      • Harald Meling

        Agreed. In the present situation. Assuming you know the Russian reaction, and that there is no Big Crisis created.
        But the Russians(Putin) never revealed 9/11, the contradictions that are apparent for anyone that chooses to see.
        Why didn’t Russia?
        Remember, 140 million Russians need to be controlled.
        Will we soon be surprised?

    To the moderators of this site. Many of my group are unable to load your pages including me if I use my main server connection. The message is that the connection timed out. And all of the routers that are unable to connect to you are having as ISP, OTEnet in Greece. We will solve the problem on our end, but is good also you to know.

    • FlorianGeyer

      I have a similar problem in the UK where Google Chrome eats up my PC memory in about 5 mins when accessing South Front and other sites that give news that conflicts with the US Narrative.

      It is achieved by bombarding my PC with Google ads even when my Google preferences have removed their content and all cookies have been deleted.

      I use another browser now to read those sites.

      • jerry hamilton

        I have success with Adblock plus. I see very few ads.

        • You can call me Al

          Yes you beat me to it, I use Adguard but same thing.

      • You can call me Al

        As Jerry states below, use an adblocker and of course get the hell off google – Yandex and Duckduck go are very good.

        • FlorianGeyer

          I thought Yandex used Google as a platform Al?
          Is Yandex able to bypass some of the Google systems ?

          • jerry hamilton

            Are you sure? I thought Yandex was an independent big brother to Google.

          • FlorianGeyer

            I found this Jerry.

            “http://www.stateofdigital.com/is-yandex-simply-a-russian-google/”

            ” Yandex.browser. Based on the Chromium open source technology (used to build Google’s Chrome among others) ”

            What does that mean in plain English Jerry ?
            I have considered using Yandex for a few years now.

          • You can call me Al

            I think Yandex is more linked to the Microsoft stuff -Bing…

            Jus try the Duckduckgo – I liked it, but I found it limited on certain things.

            More importantly – get an ad-blocker.

          • FlorianGeyer

            Thank you.
            What limitations does Duck Duck Go have Al ?

          • You can call me Al

            For me, silly things like lack of images and I did think it needed to spruce itself up a little. Just try it for a few hours.

          • FlorianGeyer

            Thank you. I will look at it Al.

  • Manuel Flores Escobar

    US Navy dont have enough Tomahawk…if they needed 105 to destroy 3 small buildings and 2 storage..it means that they need about 1050 to destroy 10 targets like that!…all these ships have no more than 450….for other side if you watch a video in you tube ( Ivan Sidorenko channel) you can see a video ” 1 hour and 9 minutes of US attacks in Damascus”…and clearly you can see that only 4 cruise missile hit Barzeh complex and Not 76…( Min 5,23) you can hear before that AAA artillery from Pantsir system)…..

  • RichardD

    Unfortunately the article describes a rapidly approaching scenario that has a strong historical and contemporary basis for being implemented. It would be the end of the Trump administration. But once the conflict started, it would be far from certain how it would end. Only a fool would ignore Trump’s bellicose words and behavior, and the evil neocons who are drenched in blood already pushing this insanity.

    He got elected on fear mongering that Hillary would do something like this. And now he’s heading for it himself.

  • To sink an aircraft carrier you will need a tactical nuclear warhead on a cruise missile. Anything else would do only minor damage. We have to be aware that a “shock and awe” response would have to include nuclear weapons to have any lasting effect. I don’t see the US to escalate things to that level. Otherwise they would not have done this useless “fake attack” the last time. They just want to make a big show for the press. The US is never attacking without absolute and massive superiority.

    • Miguel Redondo

      Bullshit , a normal warhead , 400-500kg approx put on the catapults renders the whole carrier useless. If the hole is put a little bit away from the catapults you cannot land or maneuvre with the planes. Mission acomplished.

      • Useless is not sinking. And the WWII carriers are not comparable with a modern US carrier. They can take a lot.

        • RichardD

          I just showed you one that was sunk with only one torpedo that was the same size as a modern carrier. Any improvements survivability have been offset by improvements in munitions. And multiple hits can be used.

    • RichardD

      With modern conventional munitions, a carrier can be sunk. Many have been already:

      “In World War II, submarines sank a total of eight fleet carriers from Japan, the United States, and the United Kingdom, beginning with HMS Courageous in 1939.”

      • AlexanderAmproz

        An unstoppable missile at mach 12 will easily do the trick

        The US and UK fleets already belongs to the Galleon-Ages,
        only good enough to impress backward Third World Countries …

        • RichardD

          A super carrier is a big ship. A one missile sinking would depend on the impact location and warhead. If one missile hits it, then more than one missile can hit it. I’m sure that the Russians can sink one. They may fire a salvo, it would depend on the circumstances.

          • AlexanderAmproz

            Titanic or Costa Concordia were big ships too (lol)

            The super carrier will fly over the Alps alike a rocket,
            if the bomb is big enough !

          • RichardD

            The comment was about conventional munitions. And modern carriers are designed to take a pretty good hit. Look at the USS Cole. That took a direct hit with a boat load of HE and wasn’t sunk:
            http://www.poorwilliam.net/pix/uss-cole-damage-close.jpg

          • AlexanderAmproz

            This was only a mosquitoes bite
            if compared with a Chinese or Russian missile flying at Mach 12,
            and don’t expect “Black Powder” Dynamite or TNT….

          • RichardD

            Sure, velocity makes a difference in penetration and where in the ship the explosion occurs. But a quarter ton of C4 is comparable to a lot of anti ship missiles:

            “the blast appeared to be caused by C4 explosives molded into a shaped charge against the hull of the boat.[3] Around 400 to 700 pounds (180 to 320 kg) of explosive were used.”

            – USS Cole bombing –

            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Cole_bombing

            The Russians obviously know what they’re doing, and I’m sure that they have more powerful weapons. But a boat load of C4 is hardly a mosquito bite.

    • RichardD
    • HardHawk

      maybe is time you move from 20th century into 21st. The ones who need 100 missiles of they reach the target and if they hit it is the americans not the ones who have the antidote to air carriers.

    • AJ

      You dont need to sink it just cripple it. – if you take out the flight deck then its useless for launching planes.

  • AlexanderAmproz

    “Sounds familiar? It should do. Because we’re not just thinking here of the USS Maine, the Lusitania and the Gulf of Tonkin. The Washington habit of using sunken ships as the causus belli also of course included Pearl Harbor.”

    Shouldn’t forget the American-Spanish War in Cuba !

    v t e

    The Spanish–American War (Spanish: Guerra hispano-americana or Guerra hispano-estadounidense; Filipino: Digmaang Espanyol-Amerikano) was fought between the United States and Spain in 1898. Hostilities began in the aftermath of the internal explosion of the USS Maine in Havana Harbor in Cuba, leading to U.S. intervention in the Cuban War of Independence. American acquisition of Spain’s Pacific possessions led to its involvement in the Philippine Revolution and ultimately in the Philippine–American War.[14]

    The main issue was Cuban independence. Revolts had been occurring for some years in Cuba against Spanish rule. The U.S. later backed these revolts upon entering the Spanish–American War. There had been war scares before, as in the Virginius Affair in 1873, but in the late 1890s, U.S. public opinion was agitated by anti-Spanish propaganda led by newspaper publishers such as Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst which used yellow journalism to call for war.[15][16] The business community across the United States had just recovered from a deep depression and feared that a war would reverse the gains. It lobbied vigorously against going to war.

    The United States Navy armoured cruiser Maine had mysteriously sunk in Havana Harbor; political pressures from the Democratic Party pushed the administration of Republican President William

    McKinley into a war that he had wished to avoid.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish–American_War

  • 1. American led barbaric coalition has been already at war with Russia (since 2014)
    2. Americans are firmly convinced of being able to repel any kind of Russian attack and finish the job with the complete destruction of Russian forces in Syria.
    Then, the door for the fragmentation of Russia and the imposition of global domination will be wide open.
    That’s how American war strategists read the riddle.

    • RichardD

      Do you have anything credible to support your assertion?

      • What do you need? All eight aircraft-carrier groups around ME? The economy of the western world is collapsing. The singular way to covert the complete fiasco of the western ‘civilization’ is the ignition of the new major war on global scale to set human society at default. The alternative is humiliating defeat in the form of misery that is looming for so-called ‘developed’ countries.Let’s take ‘the world leader’, that is the USA into account. She is in debt for more that 20 trillions of Dollars; US is a country where more than 40 million of people can’t afford food for themselves!

  • RichardD

    It’s increasingly looking like that the evil Jews are going to try to escalate the Syrian war with Israel and the NATO Jew 3 against the Syrian government coalition:

    “An Israeli missile strike targeted a position for the Syrian Army in al-Kom town near the Occupied Golan Heights as the government forces crackdown on jihadi groups in the area.”

    US ship was also hit by exocet.

    USA started the war with japan sinking a submarine just before pearl harbor.

  • RichardD

    The US needs to be dejudified before these evil people get us all killed. If the French and the British want to die for Israel, that’s their mistake. As an American, I certainly don’t.

  • wwinsti

    Russia’s representatives to the UN should make a motion to amend the relevant charters, making it the most heinous of war crimes to commit a false flag, especially one that leads to an act of war.

  • Ma_Laoshi

    The mathematical certainty how this is going to play out exists only in the author’s mind. We are in the very same spot we were a month ago, when every pundit said “Putin will have no choice but to respond”. But he didn’t. The very same Saker on whose blog this was published is fond of saying “The best indicator of future behavior is past behavior”. Well then, if over the past 2 1/2 years Putin has cucked every single time when it mattered during the Russian Syria mission, what’s he going to do next?

    Doesn’t mean that Trump is a shrewd strategist; I agree that the American posture is reckless in the extreme. But it’s not hard to see why they think they can get away with it a couple more times. In fact, the past week Lavrov has been busy signaling AGAIN that Americans have nothing to fear from the Teddybear. Ultimately, the buck stops with Putin, and he has overseen a long collapse of Russian deterrence–not only failing to deter the US, but giving complete carte blanche to Israel, which they have of course abused like everyone could have predicted. And for what? For “partnership” which exists only in Putin’s fantasy.

    • frankly

      Oh sure start WW III because someone shot 105 missiles that killed not a single person, almost as stupid as starting WW III because someone filmed a convincing snuff video. So yeah they got away with wasting a bunch of missiles and giving the Syrians some real practice. Meanwhile all the western generals were hunkered in their bunkers praying they don’t accidentally kill a Russian.

  • frankly

    Those in charge certainly value the equipment more than the sailors. Perhaps the rate of desertion will rise if they start sacrificing them for another phony war. The glorious traditions of service and honor that are so proudly banished at every public event are shallow recompense when the real cause of your child’s death is to increase our grip on an increasingly intransigent world community. If we want peace we should blow up our TVs instead of our children.

  • Srini Rao

    If there is any attack on US or Western War ships, You can bet it is done by Israel. It is the only country that benefit from this type of attack. If Russia attacks them, it will be WW III and it is mutual assured destruction and Russia or Syria or Iran don’t want it.

    Reportedly the only thing that saved the UK force from obliteration was
    that the Argentinians had got their missile altimeter settings wrong.
    The Russians will not make the same sort of error!

    yes, we saw in case of kuznyetsov. russian planes had wrong altimeters and did land in sean nearby of the ship. :))

    I don’t think we need to spread it now in massive numbers – enough people know it, the others wouldn’t believe you anyway. No, let it happen.
    OTOH Pearl Harbor was more than what he says: FDR moved out the important ships, only left the rusted ones to be sunk. Today the fleet that is south of Cyprus is not a rusty one.
