When the Fukushima tragedy happened to the people of Japan, I think it probably moved all of us, at some point, to tears. Watching the victims stoically trying to pick up the pieces of their lives, and then the brave people trying to put out nuclear reactor fires, all this brought them to my eyes, and I am sure did to you.

Then, almost immediately after the tsunami and earthquake, disturbing questions began to be raised, initially by the Japanese themselves, then spreading quickly throughout the internet. The questions surrounded the "un-earthquake-like" seismic signature of the event. Some in Japan openly speculated that the event and tragedy was not natural, that it was the product of a technology.

I was, and remain, among those entertaining this view, and did so here on this website.

My basic method for doing so was that I outlined in my most recent book, Covert Wars and Breakaway Civilizations, namely, that if the signature of such events is non-typical or anomalous, and there is a political context prior to the event and one subsequent to the event that indicates a change in direction or policy, then the event may have been the result of the application of technologies that I have called "emulational", i.e., the technologies to emulate acts of God or of nature, while also providing plausible deniability to their user: "We didn't do it, it was just an act of God/nature."  As readers of that book will have understood, the major powers of the world no doubt have the means and ability to detect the use of such things. The problem is, conveying that message to their people, for to do so would mean admitting two things (1) such technologies do indeed exist, and (2) their use "on us" implies that "we" (whoever "we" is in the context) "are at war."  Indeed, such possibilities have also formed the basis of elitist confabs at the recent Davos summit, where one of the "x factors" discussed was the "rogue" deployment of "geoengineering."

Thus, my approach to the Fukushima disaster was to look at prior Japanese politics, and the attitude of the Japanese government after the event. Prior to the event, a new government had assumed power in the Diet, ending decades of rule of the party that has more or less led Japan since the end of the Second World War. The new government gave two significant signals of a possible "change in direction," first, by quietly but firmly asking the USA to close its base on Okinawa, a constant source of irritation to the Japanese, particularly with a steady stream of Japanese rape cases by personnel based at the military base there; and secondly, by quietly seeking to open up greater dialogue with Beijing.  Prior to the event, US Defense Secretary Robert Gates sternly warned Japan in words that could be taken as little more than an overt threat, that closing the base would have dire consequences for Japan, consequences that were never explicitly spelled out.

However, after the event, the Japanese government seems to have taken a... well... crazy course of action, deliberately provoking China over some isolated rocks in the Pacific which both nations lay claim to. This abrupt volte face to my mind argues, again, that the Fukushima event may not have been a natural event: message sent, message received and understood.

Now in this context there is something far more serious that took place last October, according to this article by John V. Walsh:

US Goading Japan into Confrontation With China Will Japan Take the Bait?

Now, before we get to the part that I want to draw your attention to, first permit me to state that I am in almost total agreement with Mr. Walsh here, particularly in assessments such as these:

"The idea of Japan outdoing China in East Asia economically is a pipe dream, with or without the U.S. China has a population of 1.3 billion and Japan 130 million. To expect Japan to emerge as a serious challenge to China in the long term is like hoping that in the immediate future Canada with its 34 million can challenge the U.S. with 315 million. And China has a vibrant economy, an educated workforce and a culture to be reckoned with, from which Japan’s emerged and followed until it was "Westernized."

"So what is Japan’s protection to be in the face of such a large and powerful neighbor? For one thing, Japan certainly has the wherewithal to deter aggression from any quarter with its advanced technology and its potential for nuclear weapons development. For another, China has no record of expansionism overseas even going back to 1400 when it was the world’s premier naval power but never conquered or established colonies or took slaves. But a large part of Japanese security lies in an increasing respect for international law with its emphasis on sovereignty. The concept of sovereignty in international law is the protection of small nations from the depredations of large ones. And ironically the principal threat to the idea of sovereignty comes from the United States and the West with their pre-emptive wars and "humanitarian" interventions, which trash the classical concept of sovereignty. Japan should be wary of dealings with such powers and supporting such ideas."

But I want to draw your attention to this paragraph:

"What then is the U.S. to do? Armitage and Nye see a solution in the joint rescue operations mounted by the Japan Self Defense Forces (JSDF) and U.S. forces (Operation Tomodachi, meaning "Operation Friends") in response to the earthquake, tsunami and Fukushima disaster of March 11, 2011, know as 3-11 in Japan. There, the joint rescue efforts were not opposed by those who favor Article 9 and the spirit it embodies. Armitage and Nye suggest that Operation Tomodachi simply be taken as a precedent to justify future joint operations. In other words, the Japanese Constitution is simply to be ignored, pretty much the tactic that Truman inaugurated in the U.S. to plunge the country into the Korean war and the tactic Barack Obama has used in interventions like the one in Libya. Simply ignore the Constitution and its requirement that the U.S. Congress alone can declare war. This is an example, as if another were needed, of how our elites view the "rule of law" to which they appeal so often. (And one wonders whether from the outset Operation Tomodachi was viewed in part in this way by its architects. How many other U.S. humanitarian missions might have ancillary covert purposes, one might ask?)" [Emphasis added]

It is true that the USA did deploy significant naval forces to Japan to aid in disaster relief; but as Walsh implies, American
"help" seldom comes without geopolitical strings attached.

So the speculative possibility must be mentioned: was this relief all "part of the plan" to begin with, so that it could later be used to have Americans showing the Japanese how to skirt their own constitution? ("See? Here's how we've been doing it in the good ole USA ever since Roosevelt and Truman... remember him?")  Speculation? Yes, to be sure. But I put nothing past these people. Not one thing.

As for the Japanese, they're not as stupid as their governments any more than Americans are as stupid as their administrations. What the subtext to Mr. Walsh's article, and indeed to the original American "mission" or Armitrage and Nye to Japan is really saying is, Japan's future is, as it always was, inexorably tied to Asia...

See you on the flip side.

    dare I state the following without being shot down like JFK or Olaf Palme?

    Benjamin Fulford has often stated in the past that the US is trying to pit Japan against China- so maybe BF isn’t as 100% whack-o as one believes although I still have grave reservations about most of his info sources- but maybe sometimes at fleeting moments he just may be right-

    as for the tsunami I think all of us aware of Dr. Farrell’s insights (otherwise we wouldn’t be here) are more than open to the fact that maybe the tsunami wasn’t “natural”-

    as for Fukushima: there’s another camp out there (albeit small) that professes the Daiichi incident wasn’t as/is bad as being sold in MSM- I realize this is highly controversial but we must keep in mind that “fear porn” is real and our PERCEPTION of events is being manipulated-

    so where is the proof that radiation levels BEFORE Fukushima were being acurately monitored?- did anyone really care before?- probably not until MSM announced ‘Fukushima’- suddenly radiation levels ‘soared’- so if the Fukushima disaster was as bad as MSM continues to vomit, shouldn’t we all be fried by now?- and if it’s so bad how do the reporters/photographers ‘on the scene’ come away completely unscathed?- you decide-

      I do like this kind of thinking. Don’t assume that what appears to be accepted fact, or overall conse4nsus, is necessarily the true path.

    • henry on February 19, 2013 at 8:12 pm

      @”Benjamin Fulford has often stated in the past that the US is trying to pit Japan against China- so maybe BF isn’t as 100% whack”

      It’s not a “Benjamin thing”, but a common sense for anyone who is free from the corporate media propaganda.

      ‘US miscalculated China-Japan row’

      Just it’s actually not the US but the “Wall Street-London crowd” who control the US, like Mike Billington said, it has always been “the policy of the empire” which is historically known as “the British empire and the Venetian empire”.

      As for Benjamin being a “whack”, i think not many ‘whack” can “interview” Rockefeller and making fun of him.
      The attack on “Benjamin and Wilcock thing” by Cliff High on Red Ice Radio certainly reflected the feeling of many people.

      A feeling not shared by Russian media that is exposing the financial tyranny

      of course having Wilcock as guest doesn’t mean they agree 100% with everything Wilcock says. For i don’t subscribe to what he(and majority UFO community) say about Roswell.

      By the same token, while i agree with Dr Joseph on Nazi connection to Roswell incident, it doesn’t mean i agree with his remark on the invention of I Ching, for Fu Xi is one of the “creator god” in Chinese mythology not just the inventor of I Ching.

      As far as I’m concerned Fulford has some very interesting things to say about the Orient that most Westerners have never heard of or don’t see the significance to current affairs hence the inability to understand why suddenly some “Asian” secret society is taking on the Satan worshipping Anglo-American financial elites.
      Things like, not only the Japanese royal family are descended from the Wu state in China(how about trace Wu to the Zhou, then to Huangdi, and then look at original description of his ancient enemy?) but they have connection to ancient Sumer, and a mysterious group called “three legged crow” is trying to pull strings behind Japanese politics.

      It’s like many people in the West have trouble to see the significance of ancient Chinese visit to the Americas, many don’t really want to acknowledge the Chinese “discovered America first”. Now, the whole mindset around “who discovered America first?” is “western centric” in a vicious circle that it lacks the ability to even consider the other possibilities, like what if the Chinese came from the Americas?

      Even better, what if “race” and “nationality” are invented to occupy our “time”?
      if time is not linear why should i look at “race” and “nationality” as linear thing?

        Hi henry- many thanks for your very detailed reply- very appreciated-

        I agree with just about everything you stated-

        “‘US miscalculated China-Japan row”- if the testimonies of Douglas Dietrich are to be taken seriously the US DoD has miscalculated just about everything-

        “the “Wall Street-London crowd” who control the US”- no shit-

        “Fulford has some very interesting things to say about the Orient that most Westerners have never heard of”- see above under concept “no shit”-

        I’ve not yet heard/read the concept that the Chinese were the FIRST to discover America but I believe the discovery of NA was most probably somehow occuring simultaneously by East and West alike-

        “nuff” for now of my own cheap 25-cent opinion- stay well- regards-

    Everytime Japan tries to break away from those imperial chains of command,
    they get Fukushima’d.

      Here are two articles on this from major New Zealand news papers.
      The first is the original article when the story first broke, 25 September1999.

      The next is from another major NZ news paper and was published this year when the story came back in the news

      Sounds like the experiment was a failure:
      “But Laing said in 1999 the experiments at the dam were a failure, with few explosions producing more than a ripple.
      “If you were in a small boat, you could have ridden out some of the waves,” he said”.

      “Seal was reputedly well known in Auckland academic circles and many in the Engineer School knew the theory and knew it would not work.
      But because it was secret they were not allowed to let on that they knew, and thus it continued to have a quiet half-life”.

      It does not look like it was very high-tech either:
      “While everyone else watched from safe positions, Laing would walk along a platform built out into the dam, set off the explosive – and run. ”

    J.P.Farrell I am wondering if you can look into the history of England under the Anglo-Saxon-Jutes and English history after 1066 Norman Conquest. What was the amount of off island wars before and after 1066. I think it would prove quite eye openning I am going on hunch there external wars of England went ballistic after the Normans took over just a thought.

    The shadow side of this issue is that Mandiant has been ‘authorized’ to make direct hacking accusations against China.
    Meaning that the American top brass are beginning to realize that the Chinese have been peeking over their shoulders at all those top secret policy papers.

    There are a lot of stupid Americans. Think of all the idiots watching Fox News, MSNBC, CNN etc.

    Robert Gates is a Bush running dog. Groomed from CIA because of his lack of ethics and ambition. Used to be the “curator” of the Bush library before secdef.

    3-11 Japan
    9-11 USA
    7-11 London
    5-11 Spain

    what a f*cked world

      2-11 Vatican

      • Frankie Calcutta on February 19, 2013 at 3:29 pm

        “2-11 Vatican”

        A good time for the banksters to hit the Vatican would be while all the Cardinals are in conclave. Total decapitation.

          • Frankie Calcutta on February 20, 2013 at 2:17 pm

            i’ll believe that when I see it. but then again:

            media = banksters

            Catholic Church pedophile scandal = media driven

            banksters now zeroing in on Vatican central itself using media including gullible “alternative media” internet rubes.

            You take down the Vatican with this proven successful scandal it would be quite a pay day.

            Wait! It doesn’t make sense! The Vatican are the banksters and they are attacking themselves. I’m so confused.
