The Germans, according to the following article, or rather, one of their major defense contractors - Rheinmetall (we'll get back to them) - has unveiled a tactical laser that can shoot down drones from 2 kilometers and burn through steel girders a kilometer away(and my thanks to Mr. K.L. for bringing this to my attention):

Germans unveil 'star wars' laser that can shoot a drone out of the sky from 2 miles away and cut through a steel girder at 700 yards

I suspect that most regular readers here will have the same thoughts I had when I first read this: not only do the contents bother, but the timing of the article bothers more. First, a bit of an historical aside for the non-German readership here. Rheinmetall is a company that, of course, was a major German defense corporation during the Second World War and before, going under the name of Rheinmetall-Borsig. So we are dealing with one of those firms with a long track record in armaments and defense, like Bofors in Sweden, Vickers in the United Kingdom, or Boeing or Lockheed in the USA. Before the Second World War they produced a nifty "little" road mobile 35.5cm howitzer for the German army that could go from travel condition to full operational status in about two hours, an unheard of time for such a monster. So in other words, we're dealing with a company with a good track record of military engineering.

Which makes the story all the more interesting. The article above specifically mentions that this laser was tested against drones, and thus, I cannot help but avoid the suspicion that this is a none-too-subtle message; after all, what country in the world is loudly trumpeting its ability to use drones to assassinate high-power targets, to spy on its own citizens, and in general, to use them as an extension of its imperial policies? So the first message might be: "Tired of having drones drop in and ruining your Jihadist party? Call 1-800-Rheinmetall and shoot back..." In other words, it is a subtle pitch to those targeted by the drones: Germany has a nifty little portable laser that can shoot them down, from the same company that brought you road mobile rapidly-deployable fourteen inch howizters (they worked too, just ask the Russians). So the second message might be a bit deeper, for it is another signal that there is a rift - a big one - quietly developing between Europe and that postwar dominance by the Anglo-American elite, what our friends at the Daily Bell call the "Anglosphere".

But in the deepest sense, I cannot help but entertain the suspicion that the timing of this "message" is also significant, for as readers of this site will be well aware, Germany has been trying for some months now to get a clear indicator from its own central bank, the Bundesbank, and from the City of London and New York, just how much gold it has, and by unspoken implication, where it is.  In the final analysis, the message is clear: Germany to the non-western world: Got Drones? We got lasers. Sale: Buy ten, second ten discounted. Germany to Anglosphere: You have drones, we have lasers.

See you on the flip side.

    You got to love those Germans. Always one step ahead of the curve in the consumer market. That’s why their economy is running on all cylinders and the US economy has gone to the dogs. Not to be outdone, I look forward to when the Chinese start mass producing similar technologies at a much cheaper price. The world will be awash in anti-drone defenses before we know it. Forget buying gold. Buy a few of these things.

    It seems like whatever the cabal rolls out in terms of military/surveillance technology, an antidote will soon appear to challenge it. Like free speech and the internet, this kind of unstoppable ingenuity and production will be another thorn in the side of the cabal and their plans. and boy that Canadian border is long. Add to that the Mexican border and our porous seaports, there will be no stopping stuff like this getting through. Oh yeah, and fostering a culture of corruption will help also in this regard. Lining your own pockets with cash will always take precedence to duty to job and country. And allowing the slew of intelligence services gangsters to smuggle in their narcotics all these years, has guaranteed a culture of corruption in our border patrols.

    I would also conjecture that the recent German military build up in Turkey under the guise of NATO and thwarting Syria, may actually be a Trojan Horse or in the least, giving the option for a Trojan Horse, if the need arises. A German occupational army in Turkey? It seems the Germans may have plans for securing the borders of their burgeoning new Reich. In the least, giving them sway over the decision making in Istanbul, replacing Tel Aviv and possibly neutralizing the true threat to peace in the middle east which is Turkey and Israel. This will also come in handy when it comes time to start deporting some of those 18 million Turks living in Germany currently which I would also bet is in the cards.

    Hmm… that’s interesting, but not really anything too new. Big lasers have been in the making for many years now, and I think Lockheed actually beat these guys to it already:

    As well as other programs.

    Somehow though, I think that if any terrorists had the funds to buy this equipment (forget getting their hands on it, which would be very tricky indeed), that they could probably also just afford a drone as well! So I don’t think that Al-Qaeda is going to be Rheinmetall’s customer for this product any time soon.

    • Frankie Calcutta on January 14, 2013 at 10:17 am

      Terrorists? El Qaida? What planet is this guy on?

      BeRational, I think you belong in a Sean Hannity chat room.

      “I think that if any terrorists had the funds to buy this equipment…”

      The CIA and mossad’s budgets are a black hole. I’m sure they could cough up the money for El Qaida in your fantasy scenario. I wonder how much one of those are worth in kilograms of cocaine?

      And if a renegade “terrorist” group wanted to get their hands on one, they could just approach any businessman who adheres to the teachings of the talmud. and he would be able to get his hands on one in no time, if the price is right. That’s how Pakistan and Iran get most of their black market weapons.

    Interesting. So on the grand chess board, the Rockefeller/Brzezinski team once thought that the U.S. was in a unique position to be the last and final empire, to lead the world into the New World Order, but Christian Zionism happens.
    Emperor Rockefeller screams, “Pesky reckless Neocons are going to ruin everything.” Zionist Rothschilds continue to stir the pot with their werewolf assassins. A rift in the force! Holographic Rockefeller appears to Darth Brzezinski.
    Emperor Rockefeller scowls, “Although America has the Hollywood glitter, this chaos is threatening everything.”
    Darth Brzezinski replies, “Putin is my son.”
    The Emperor proclaims, “If he can be turned to the dark side, we could rule Eurasia from a much better strategic position.”
    Darth Brzezinski replies, “Okay, I’ll go turn him, but I sure hope he doesn’t throw me in jail.” Darth Brzezinski takes a nifty little road mobile, hover howitzer over to Russia to meet with Putin.
    Darth Brzezinski: “Hey Vlad, I’m your dad.”
    Putin replies, “Noooo…That’s impossible!”
    Brzezinski replies, “Yeah it’s true, and if you join us over at the Trilateral Commission, together we can end this Chaos.”
    Putin says, “Screw you dad, those are the same jerks that funded the Bolshevik Revolution, and I don’t like David Rockefeller, and you ain’t getting in here from China either”
    Brzezinski: “No no son, we’re dumping lot of those guys, and we can kill Rockefeller.”
    Putin: “well, I’ll think about it, but keep those werewolfs from attacking Iran, because they’re in my BRICs Alliance.”
    Brzezinski: “Don’t worry son, because we’re going to put in a Kenyan as America’s president and he’ll stall the attack until after his second term. “Then The Germans are going to build lasers to shoot down Israeli drones, and sell them to Jihadists.” “The Germans don’t like this crap either son.”
    Putin: “Golly dad…That sounds nifty.”
    Brzezinski: “While I’m turning you to the dark side son, you’re going to learn all kinds of cool martial arts, and I’m going to call you Darth Beaver Cleaver.”
    Putin: “That’s not necessary dad, because I already know Judo, and I ain’t turning until I see some results”
    Brzezinski: “Don’t worry son…They’re no match for the dark side.”
    Putin, “The dark side sounds cool dad, because all the Jedi ever do is Babel about the bible, and talk about horny mammals during the new moon.
    Darth Brzezinski speeds away in his nifty road mobile Hover Howitzer.

    for Tor,

    now moving onto the 2nd chapter of genesis, the first one having to do with scientifically how the earth was formed, the creator is light, and all creation comes from light.
    The 2nd part deals with psychology manipulation..
    1) Establish your self as the Lord
    2) State your intention (of needing a worker slave to till earth)
    3) Give the free lunch
    4) Make something forbidden ( curiosity kills the cat)
    5) Punish them, for breaking the deal.
    6) point out that work and no play dulls the thinking process.

        Yes Jedi…All very elementary, but you argued against my statement regarding the Roman Empire. Thanks for this, but moving along…

    Allow me to break commentary protocol and ask Joseph a (tangential, but perhaps deeply related) question:

    Speaking of curious and alarming timing, as certain lines may or may not be in the process of being drawn in the geopolitical and geocultural sands, what is your reaction to this article via the Smithsonian and its attempt to introduce Japan into the Christian identity and tradition (or post-Christian fanaticism) of the West?

    To me, the notion of dismissing the timing, the source, and the implication of this articles content–especially given the geopolitical and financial context of the last 80 years or so–seems to stretch the bounds of incredulity.

    Needless to say, I’m quite curious to see what some other minds make of this.

    Dr. Farrell…?


    • incognito on January 12, 2013 at 10:32 am


      I’d say the Smithsonian has gone nuts. Besides, who really gives a flying crap what “The Smithsonian” says or does. Typical scumbag establishment garbage.

      • John Q. on January 12, 2013 at 4:33 pm


        Perhaps. Agree (excepting instances in which what it says or does may in fact be a potentially significant signal). And yes, of course it is… but issued toward what end(s)?

        • incognito on January 12, 2013 at 6:20 pm

          Ferris Bueller? His day off? Shake it on, baby? Twist and shout? NM

          I read the article because I hate asking a question and being ignored. I don’t think the Smithsonian is attempting to bring Japan into the Christian tradition or anything like that. I think this Smithsonian reporter (and the magazine as a whole) has waytoo much time on their hands and posted the silliest garbage I’ve read in a long time. Remember, these are basically peasants and their myths. While I have learned never to dismiss any bit of information, this story is just way too out there and with no way to verify. Basically, it’s a waste of time.

          You’re welcome.

    • Robert Barricklow on January 12, 2013 at 10:09 am

      Of course the above is using “Hollywooded” images to make a point about how society is being engineered in a way that is not in its own interests. This is obvious to all, ..yet?
      Hollywood is even “redrawing these said images to reflect a “darker side”: superman, spiderman, even bugs bunny.
      What Madness.

    Growth in China’s Drone Program Called ‘Alarming’

    Japan and China step up drone race as tension builds over disputed islands

    • incognito on January 12, 2013 at 10:37 am

      That’s very rich. The scum are planning 30,000 drones over the “land of the free” by 2015 but it’s the chinese drones which are alarming. Can’t wait for the staff and owners at the NY Whore Times to lose their heads for lying to the public.

  8. bdw000 on January 12, 2013 at 8:34 am

    I am no expert, and I enjoyed the above analysis.

    But I have one question: aren’t there easier ways to shoot down drones?

    I would hazard a guess that military grade portable lasers are very expensive and require fairly large amounts of support equipment.

    Wouldn’t a good old-fashioned, hand-held stinger missile, or today’s equivalent, be far cheaper, and just as effective, as a laser??? I know nothing about these things. Perhaps stingers require a larger target, like a full-sized airplane. I don’t know.

    • incognito on January 12, 2013 at 9:23 am

      Stinger SAMs use the airplane’s engines and their heat signature as a homing beacon. Today’s drones are designed to shield their exhaust to prevent this very situation. The lasers shouldn’t require lots of support equipment and would be very handy against your buddies in DHS.



    • Skyoracle on January 15, 2013 at 8:54 pm

      It wouldn’t suprise me if some 1st Lieutenant jokingly stated that an AR-15 could probably bring one of these drones down.

      In a day where common sense takes a back seat to a three steps ahead theoretical genius, some engineer reluctantly cries “Oh Sh*#”

      The government panics and screams for immediate ban on guns! LOL!
