RUSSIAN SU-24 BOMBER SQUARES OFF AGAINST USS DONALD COOK

April 27, 2014 By Joseph P. Farrell

This one has to have them scratching their heads, and "reconsidering their options" in Washington, District of Corruption.

But first, a little history lesson. At 3:15 AM, on June 22, 1941, the largest military campaign in human history began, as two enormously powerful military machines squared off against each other: the Russian Red Army, and the German Wehrmacht; Adolf Hitler had begun his invasion of the Soviet Union. We won't, of course, recount that whole grizzly campaign - responsible for over half of the all casualties of World War Two in all theaters. What I want to draw your attention to is something the invading German soldiers encountered: the Russian T-34, KV-1, and KV-2, tanks. Now, I'm not a subscriber to the great "T-34" mythology that populates military history books and sound bites on television shows. But that isn't my point here. My point is that these three types of tank were totally unknown to the Germans, and indeed, to the rest of the world's military. They had never appeared in any pre-war Soviet May day parade, yet, when the Germans invaded, they encountered these Russian monsters in their hundreds.

Three totally unknown weapons systems.

And the Russians had more or less successfully kept thousands of them hidden from any observation prior to the outbreak of the war.

Now, in the light of that context, and in the light of Washington's huffing and puffing about Russian behavior in looking out for its own geopolitical interests, and in the light of the US Navy sending warships into the Black Sea as a result of the whole Ukrainian mess, consider this interesting story:

Russian Su-24 Scores Off Against the American USS DOnald Cook

There are so many things to ponder here that one does not really know where to begin. But first off, the idea that the Russian Su-24 performed this mission as a will-o-the-wisp or on a lark from the local Russian commander is out of the question. This was a carefully staged demonstration that would have had to come from the highest levels of authorization, for the simple reason that it is revealing of sophisticated Russian jamming and electronics interference technology; it was a bit similar to the withholding from public scrutiny of the Russian tanks prior to the outbreak of the Russo-German theater of World War Two. In this case, the message is clear: Russia has the technological capability to interfere with the USA's most sophisticated missile defense technology, a message that cannot be lost on the American military establishment. The Russians have demonstrated a capability that, if guessed at by Washington, is now confirmed.

The real problem here is that there is another implicit message: "if we have this capability, and are willing to demonstrate it, what other capabilities might we have that we have not revealed?"

But there is another revelation in this article, and I hope the reader caught what it might be(assuming, of course, that it is not mere propaganda on the Russians' part). That revelation is contained in this passage:

"In response, Russia sent an unarmed bomber Su- 24 to fly around the U.S. destroyer. However, experts say that this plane was equipped with the latest Russian electronic warfare complex. According to this version, "Aegis" spotted from afar the approaching aircraft, and sounded alarm. Everything went normally, American radars calculated the speed of the approaching target. And suddenly all the screens went blank. "Aegis" was not working any more, and the rockets could not get target information. Meanwhile, Su-24 flew over the deck of the destroyer, did battle turn and simulated missile attack on the target. Then it turned and repeated the maneuver. And did so 12 times.

"Apparently, all efforts to revive the "Aegis" and provide target information for the defence failed. Russia's reaction to military pressure from the United States was profoundly calm, feels the Russian political scientist Pavel Zolotarev:

"The demonstration was original enough. A bomber without any weapons, but having onboard equipment for jamming enemy radar, worked against a destroyer equipped with "Aegis", the most modern system of air and missile defence. But this system of mobile location, in this case the ship, has a significant drawback. That is, the target tracking capabilities. They work well when there is a number of these ships which can coordinate with each other somehow. In this case there was just one destroyer. And, apparently, the algorithm of the radar in the "Aegis” system on the destroyer did not load under the influence of jamming by the Su-24. It was therefore not only a nervous reaction to the fact of flying around by the Russin bomber which was common practice during the Cold War. The reaction of the Americans was due to the fact that most modern system, especially its informative or radar part, did not work adequately. Therefore, there was such a nervous reaction to the whole episode."

What is being suggested here is something profound, and, for the western oligarchs, profoundly disturbing, for what is being suggested is that this was not a typical radar jamming scenario, but rather, than a remote means of shutting down the Aegis' system's software was in play: the "algorithm...did not load." This recalls episodes from UFO cases from both America and the Soviet Union during the 1960s and 1970s, where UFOs apparently remotely interfered with the on-board computer and targeting systems of ICBMs, programming and re-targeting the missiles, or in one famous case from the Soviet Union, actually beginning the launch sequence of Russian ICBMs remotely. As Robert Hastings noted in his masterful study of UFO-nuclear weapons cases, the American Boeing company was called in to study this phenomenon, and had some success in duplicating some of the UFO effects on American missiles by remote electromagnetic means.

One can only assume that the Russians would have undertaken similar studies in response to similar incidents in Russia, and if the Aegis incident in the Black Sea, as reported in the above article, is any indicator, the Russians have had some success as well. And this means in turn the potential exists to interfere by such means in all types of electronic systems, including the systems of electronic international financial clearing. One can imagine an episode of an Su-24 flying over, say, the SWIFT headquarters in Brussels, or Russian satellites equipped with similar capabilities in space, producing similar results in Western satellites, where the "algorithm fails to load." Similarly, Russia's anti-aircraft carrier cruise missiles, coupled with the use of such capabilities, have also got to be causing nightmare migraines, for it means that the nucleus of Western naval power is potentially dangerously exposed.

If we can consider such potentialities, rest assured, they are considering them in London and Washington, for the potentialities are profoundly disturbing.

See you on the flip side.

This was a message whose significance and implications are difficult, if not impossible, to avoid.
