While we're on the subject of the BRICSA nations, it's worth pausing to consider some developments in defense issues of the most prominent military power in that entente: Russia. You may recall that in the aftermath of the Chleyabinsk meteor, there were calls in Russia for the development of an asteroid defense system, a system that, it should also be recalled, the Russians were going to build, with or without Western participation. Suspiciously, then President Dmitri Medvedev stated that Russia needed such a system before the Chelyabinsk incident, raising the possibilities that the incident might have been conveniently provided to reinforce the point.

The perception exists - and it is an unfortunate and gravely misinformed one - that in the demise of the Soviet Union, Russia simply gave up and quit its massive spending on military research and development, while the exact opposite is actually the case, and, in a world where American foreign policy seems to be pitched just this side of hysterical insanity, and more particularly, when a completely irresponsible intervention in Syria is being contemplated for the flimsiest of reasons, against all this backdrop - Chelyabinsk, the Middle East, Arab Spring, American unipolarism, Syria - this article appears over at RT:

MAKS headroom: Russia unveils plans for new anti-missile system, 5th-generation fighter jet

I want to point out two subtle messages being sent in this article. The first one is this, and the message, and the ultimate recipient thereof, is clear and really needs no commentary:

"With a fifth-generation PAK-FA heavy attack jet already developed and planned to enter service in 2016, Russian aviation is also looking to the future of air combat, conducting research and development for aircraft that can dominate airspace by the mid-21st century."

In case the message is unclear, Russia is simply stating its intention to build technologically superior aircraft that can challenge US air supremacy, the crucial "air" based component of its "air-land battle" doctrine. This means, at a deeper level, the Russian military is most likely rethinking its own operational doctrines. But the message, coming at more or less the same time as the announcement of the BRICSA bank's capitalization, is clear: Russia is not going to sit idly by and allow a unipolar Amero-centric world to emerge.

But there's a second message in this article, and I must admit, I find the second message much more intriguing because of its opportunities for high octane speculation, coming as it does more or less a year and some odd weeks after the Chelyabinsk incident. That second message is this:

“'A promising anti-aircraft missile system S-500 is being designed now,' the source said. 'The Armed Forces may have it in 2017.' The special feature of the formidable new lineup is the ability to lock on to and engage multiple targets in space, never allowing them to reach Russian airspace.

"Moscow has been making attempting leaps in combat technology – especially missile defense – given the uneasy international climate it finds itself in currently. The plan for a better missile defense is a direct answer to the United States’ idea for a missile shield in Europe, which it says is for defensive purposes against unpredictable regimes such as Iran and North Korea. Russia is not feeling very secure with the proposed system to be so close to its territories. " (Boldface emphasis added)

The obvious reference to the US "missile defense" system for Europe is meant, I suspect, to cloak a deeper reason, suggested by President Medvedev approximately one month before the Chelyabinsk incident: Russia needed, and would build, a space defense system to protect itself from asteroids. In other words, my high octane speculation here is that behind the apparent competition between the USA, Europe, and Russia, to build "missile defense systems," their may be an altogether different agenda, an agenda of deep cooperation masked behind the apparent theater and show of great power confrontation, for recall the Von Braun-Rosin affadavit for a moment. Von Braun, you will recall, allegedly informed his associate at Fairchild Industries, Dr. Carole Rosin, that there was in existence a long-term plan to weaponize space, and that the "threats" concocted to do so would be, in this order (1) communism and Soviet Russia, (2) terrorists, (3) Nations of concern (which is the exact reason the USA gives for its missile defense shield in Europe), (4) asteroids, the reason given by President Medvedev about a month prior to the Chelyabinsk incident, and finally, (5) extraterrestrials and the threat of invasion (i.e., a real live interplanetary war). We have, already, at least some evidence that someone is shooting at someone else out there in space, in the provocative STS-48 shuttle video.

In short, it appears on the scheme of the Von Braun-Rosin affadavit that the "timetable" of memes is different for the East and the West, for you'll note that American rationalizations for missile or space defense systems is still that of "the nation of concern" phase(stage three), while Russia - pace Medvedev - has already advanced to the fourth stage, using the "asteroid threat" as a rationalization for deployment of a Russian system.

And that in turn suggests something else, namely, that perhaps there is some sort of secretly agreed upon role for each of the great powers in the gradual preparation for that event known in the ufology community as disclosure. Perhaps it will fall, not to the US President, but to the Chinese premier, or Indian Prime Minister, to take the final step and suggest that we need space based defense systems not only against asteroids, but against the threat of potential interplanetary invasion.

Bottom line: in my opinion, it is not so much the threat of American, British, French, or for that matter, German or Israeli missiles raining down on Russia that the Russians are building this. Such systems, like spy satellites, can do double duty, protecting not only against other potential great power threats, but against other types of threats altogether.

It is Chelyabinsk that is hovering in the background here. Not just American ICBMs.

See you on the flip side.

    Guess what else was near Chelyabinsk!

    Looks like someone might have been testing the defenses around that area…

    take it for whatever you feel it’s worth: read John Hamer’s “The Falsification of History” for another take on the Soviet/American space race; asteroids are not in the picture but the van Allen radiation belt definetly is- sort of puts the skids on many theories about movement of anything close to or beyond it-

    Hamer’s expoundings are worth consideration- I just don’t think we should rule out anything- hey, the universe is vast and no-one has yet unlocked its secrets-

    While the idea of “natural” asteroids randomly impacting Earth my seem remote and non-threatening to some, there are other scenarios to consider..

    The idea of “mining” asteroids assumes the ability to move and direct them in whatever manner needed. This, by extension, means that they can (and therefore, will) be weaponized.

    In fact, some of the most destructive weapons use kinetic energy as the primary means of damage – translating kinetic energy into explosive force – such as advanced anti-armor rounds which use depleted uranium or shaped charges propelling molten metals (like copper).

    The kinetic energy of a mass the size of even a moderate asteroid accelerated properly can cause incredible destruction on impact. A small cloud of much smaller objects could easily “sweep” wide swaths clear of satellites in orbit. A steady stream of appropriate sized objects (for example, a series of small asteroids aimed, accelerated, then fractured at the right moment) could make flying a dangerous task, even if it did not result in massive damage at the ground level

    Asteroids could be the ultimate “deniable” weapon, just as weather is being used. It could be the weaponization threat that was the real danger behind the idea of asteroids as a basis for space-based weapons.

    If the process is indeed intended to confuse and confound possible alien “jailers” for this planet, then we should think of the plans laid by the elites as one would consider the plotting of prison inmates against the guards. Multiple layers disguised as factional infighting designed to put into place capabilities which can be turned, at the right moment, into an effective force multiplier.

    Given the lack of air resistance (drag) in space, kinetic weapons are far more effective in that realm. Hence, the desire for rail guns and the like – projectile weapons without recoil – perfect for space. A baseball sized mass at 100,000 mph would be pretty formidable in space, although it would take a much larger mass to survive our atmosphere and cause any appreciable damage at ground level.

    Such weapons would require massive power, such as is more available outside the atmosphere (solar), and would be the kind of thing one would build with robots and 3D printing. I can envision a “Metalstorm” type of weapon on a large enough scale which would be quite formidable.

    I believe that such systems were tested by the Star Wars program (circa 1980s), and one was called “Bright Pebbles,” presumably a rail shotgun kind of thing.

    A closed loop overunity device, using materials from the asteroid itself, could turn any asteroid into a missile. A 3D printed heat shield of the proper shape could ensure survival of more of the mass of the asteroid at ground level. This type of massive weapon could only be defeated by something like the weapons which vaporized the towers on 9/11, and even that would still have serious “fallout.”

      The World Trade Towers weren’t exactly moving objects. Plus steel and aluminum didn’t burn-powderize within a tenth of a mile radius.

      Also the idea of redirecting an asteroid/meteor was already an episode of SG1.

    I’m sure the globalists are pinning their hopes on Russia and the BRICS , back door military technology transfer from the West to the East is at full pace.

    Chinese chips and transistors in US missiles? Come on, they must think we’re idiots!

    The US dollar hegemony and the greatest monetary bubble in the history of the world is teetering on the edge of collapse, while the US civilian population is armed to the teeth (remember the 2nd most armed domestic population on the planet after the US was Yugoslavia, food for thought).

    Brzezinski mocked the Smolensk ‘conspiracy’ while Goldman Sachs and Citibank immediately opened offices after the presidents death and did a fire sale of state assets.

    While Patriarch Kirill never attended Patriarch Pavle’s funeral as the little Serbian refused to play the grand chessboard and wasn’t part of the velvet mafia.

    Personally, I have to wonder if ALL international conflict of the past 100 years has been choreographed and scripted by all the major players.

    • Don B on September 16, 2013 at 10:48 am

      Agree. Its all theater. The BRICS …same. The same oligarchs just putting a new face on the planet. Russia has troops here for Christ sakes. I must say though, obummer and the little weasel are good actors. lol

    Советская империя не умерла в 1991году. Она замаскировалась. Теперь Она выходит на мировую арену во всем своем блеске. И войны мы не боимся, у нас есть чем ответить Америке! И Мы ответим так, что Ленин воскреснет в Мавзолее и будет нас приветствовать!

    • Joseph P. Farrell on September 16, 2013 at 10:29 am

      Uhm…as near as I can make out from Google translator, this says “The Soviet empire died in 1991. She disguised. It now goes to the world stage in all its splendor. And we are not afraid of war, we have something to say to America! And we will respond in such a way that the rise in the Mausoleum of Lenin and we will welcome!” I’m not sure if this means the commenter is FOR or AGAINST Lenin and his ilk. If anyone knows Russian better than Google, have at it…

        that was very much it dr farrell! i think that he is FOR Lenin, saying that “..he will greet us..”

  7. Robert Barricklow on September 16, 2013 at 8:23 am

    I’am reminded of Werner Heisenberg: ‘…we have to remember that what we observe is not nature in itself but nature exposed to our method of questioning’.

    I just don’t see the ‘alien’ threat from without.
    I see it more like an advanced psy-ops special effects version of dressed-up Indians at a Boston Tea Party.

  8. marcos toledo on September 16, 2013 at 7:05 am

    Just wondering what the Chinese are up to in space weaponizing in their space program. Will we be taking our military conflicts there too.

  9. jedi on September 16, 2013 at 6:36 am

    asteroids have never, and will never, be a threat too earth.

    The science is so bad it is insulting.

    • Joseph P. Farrell on September 16, 2013 at 8:56 am

      Agreed… it’s interesting to me that one and the same community can (1) advocate asteroids as a threat, and then (2) remind us at other times of things like the Roche limit, tidal stresses, and so on, against other celestial bodies. Then, a month or so later, they will remind us of the KT boundary layer kill shot, and so on. The theater(or, in the Russians’s case, ballet), continues…

      • jedi on September 16, 2013 at 2:49 pm

        Let us go back to the bible,
        And God made (remember god is light) the firmament (which is going to be called heaven, ie the land beneath your feet), and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament, and it was so. ( Ie the continents were formed from electro magnetic effects of the sun and the moon, by reshaping the mantle)…and let the waters under the heaven be gathered into one place and let the dry land appear….this is OBSERVED in tidal effects on the oceans.,,,and the massive erosion of the Grand Canyon which happened in months…..these force fields will not permit a asteroid to strike the earth…more fear mongering and lies… a plasma strike..that would be one hell of a weapon
        The people that wrote the bible were smart….the people reading it another story.

        • Enlil's a Dog on September 17, 2013 at 6:52 pm

          I recommend the book called ‘The Genesis Flood’ by John Whitcomb & Henry Morris if you’ve not read it. It makes a compelling argument for a young earth creation I must say.

          I believe Morris was a ‘Hydrologist’, someone that specializes in the geological movement of water across the planet, environmental science etc etc.

          I’m not a darwinist but I have to admit to never being a young earther either but the book is serious food for thought on the issue!

          • jedi on September 18, 2013 at 8:11 am

            Thanks Enil, not to seem to be arrogant, I am way beyond those guys. God bless them though for keeping the faith when mankind was in blindness by the murderers liars and thebes.

    • bdw000 on September 16, 2013 at 10:35 am

      While I will not claim that the arguments are 100% slam dunk, I am convinced that most (if perhaps all) craters (and even some canyons, like the Grand Canyon) that we see anywhere in the solar system are caused by giant lightning strikes.

      At the very least, the arguments are so good that they cannot simply be dismissed: they need to be refuted.

      Check out for many articles (“TPOD” = “Thunderbolt picture of the day”).

      • Frankie Calcutta on September 16, 2013 at 6:28 pm

        I would argue that at one time the Earth was a disc and not a globe, but a slightly concave disc– which would have prevented the ocean waters from spilling over the sides. For whatever reason, the Earth shaped itself (or was shaped) into a ball and in this process, as the Earth stretched, fissures developed such as the Grand Canyon.

        Interesting that many of the ancient legends speak of the Creator of our world as a potter. Did this Almighty Potter turn the Earth from a plate into a pot? As we explore more of the space around us, will we one day come across disc shaped (flat) planets in other solar systems? Were the medieval legends of a flat Earth not so hair brained as we might imagine?

        While it is interesting to think of the Creator of our Universe as a potter sitting at his wheel, I still prefer to see Him as a blind man with a rubik’s cube.

        • Sagnacity on September 17, 2013 at 4:36 am

          But the waters of the ocean and these fissures are on the outside of the sphere; usually the outside of a sphere when starting with a cupped disc comes from the convex side of the disc. I see some other problems too, like gravity tending to make things into spheres sans other influences.

          • jedi on September 17, 2013 at 5:24 am

            FC….is there even one observation of a frisbee planet…..lots of orbs….
            and Sag….genesis has that covered, a firmament to divide the waters from below from the waters above. I suspect the earth was at one point a sun…..the covenent the liars had amongst themselves was a pillar of salt… mail, you see they would never expose each other or the slaves would find out…and in a heartbeat there goes the empire. Probably why they were playing around with dna to make stupid obedient slaves who would self destruct on command.

            oh boy…..U 2 bonos must unlearn what you have learned…..(and that was a joke at your expenses….smile)

          • Frankie Calcutta on September 17, 2013 at 8:49 am

            Sag and Jedi,

            My flat Earth hypothesis is less than a day old so obviously I have few kinks to work out. My real intention was to see if I could revive debate in the flat Earth theory… and what better place to do it than the most cutting edge website in the quarantine zone.

          • jedi on September 17, 2013 at 9:45 am

            the quarantine zone sure beats the twilight zone ( alittle dark age if you get my snow drift)……dont worry FC the earth does look flat from space in pics…..thin as a slice of paper from a different perspective…..actually all the planets do, and by god that is why we only see side a of the moon….–…-…

  10. DanaThomas on September 16, 2013 at 6:06 am

    The militarization of space must be stopped: and the first step is to shine a “light in the dark” and reveal what they are doing out there…
