RUSSIAN SU-24 BOMBER SQUARES OFF AGAINST USS DONALD COOK

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.

  1. Dr. Farrell- despite your I’m sure very valid references to the totally unknown/threatening to the Germans Soviet tank-types you forgot to mention the N**i-invented/usage of devastating fluid-air bombs against Soviet forces according to your research-

    tit for tat?- so who had the upper hand?- the Soviets with secret tanks or the N**s with fluid air-bombs?- you know yourself-

    I wouldn’t doubt for a second that Russia and China at the present time have technologies equal to or greater than those of the crumbling empire known as the USA-

    Larry

    1. The Nazis may well have stolen the liquid oxygen bomb from the USA — it was publicized in Popular Science ( July 1940 )
      and Popular Mechanics ( June 1940 ).

      The patents :

      Liquid oxygen explosive composition process and apparatus
      US3035519

      Liquid oxygen explosive and method of preparing same
      US2723188

  2. Actually, it is an old hat trick… The Israelis pulled it for their famous Raid on Entebbe, using technology invented by Sid Hurwich to jam radar, &c…

    More recently, James CORNWELL invented a “Directed Energy Jamming System” comprised of a microwave oven overdriven by a Telsa coil. The resulting beam penetrates Faraday cage-shielded equipment and turns it off without destroying the targeted circuit… pretty neato-cool, eh what ?

    For more info:

    The Hurwich system remains secret. The Cornwell method can be done at home, but don’t, you naughty insurgent domesticated terrorist you…

  3. I’ve seen this report 3-4 times now and my own sense of it is that it is essentially true. And if so, then this is a much more serious threat to the US than any T-34 ever was to Hitler, because it will short-circuit any- and everything that comes near. You must also assume that this technology has already been quietly deployed to close Russian allies, such as Iran and Syria…ho ho! If this is true, so much for the US Navy; you might as well sell it off for scrap–and you can forget about projecting US power through any means but via overwhelming combined forces.

    The Pentagram, through hubris and complacency, has forgotten that the Russians are fully capable of technological innovation and that their capacities and history have often shown them to be formidable innovators who think outsde of the DARPA box. Sputnik, anyone?

    Of course the ultimate nightmare is that Russian agents flip the switch on one of these in the City of London or on Wall Street, taking Cold War 2.0 to the heart of the beast and giving the Anglo-American Cabal a real heart-attack. Whoopsy.

    As the Chinese proverb goes, interesting times to be alive.

  4. Su-24 score off USS Donald Cook happened before ‘spectacular fireball’ hitting Murmansk.

    http://rt.com/news/meteorite-murmansk-explosion-space-588/

    The RT article “Pentagon-sponsored study opens door for super lasers, weather control” was published after “Donald Cook incident” and just before “Murmansk meteorite explosion”.

    Russia’s Northern Fleet is headquartered in Severomorsk of Murmansk Oblast.

    U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry just said “window for Russia to change course in Ukraine is closing”.

    “Secretary of State John Kerry delivered a strongly worded warning to Russia on Thursday, saying the U.S. is ready to impose more sanctions if Russia refuses to de-escalate the situation in Ukraine.

    “The window to change course is closing,” Kerry said. If Russia doesn’t change course, “the world will make sure the costs for Russia will only grow.””

    Recall what he said after succeeding Hilary Clinton as Secretary of State, “No change in US strategy no matter who runs State Dept”.

    “Ukraine” is a continuation of “Syria” or another “Syria” situation.
    Then recall what his predecessor said during “Syrian Crisis”.

    “I do not believe that Russia and China are paying any price at all – nothing at all – for standing up on behalf of the Assad regime. The only way that will change is if every nation represented here directly and urgently makes it clear that Russia and China will pay a price,” Clinton warned.­

    If the Krymsk flood in the Krasnodar Krai Region of Russia in 2012 was the “price” for “Syria”, what would be the “cost” for Russia’s stance on “Ukraine”?

    Jamming a warship in the Black Sea is one thing, but to prevent ‘flash-flood’ in Krymsk is another.

      1. Enjoy your posts henry.
        I did pull up the USA Today Story, but with so many ads getting in the way, and then switching to tornadoes I gave up. Googled headlines went to The Hill(12 cookies picked up between the two), more ads; but, finally the story. And it is story telling. It must be frustrating for the reporter to wait until the actor actually reads the script, before the scribbler can actually write it. Much more efficient too just write it and save the theatre of illusion for something more Hollywooded, more special effects. Not your fault henry. Just a sad reminder of how the internet is being financialized – like governments, foods, war, you-name-it, …and even love.
        There has to be many technologies wrapped-up and “hidden” away from the public eye(as if the public still exist). But the threat of war is a good excuse as any, to show a few cards, when a bluff is called. Assuming, the player calling it, is even half-way sane.

    1. It seems to stretch the law of probability that large alleged meteorites have, within a relatively short time, appeared, been photographed and exploded (or been exploded?) in the air near large cities in the Russian Far North. Rather than somewhere over Alaska or Canada, for example…

  5. Let’s just assume that the story is true, then the guys on the US Donald Duck got checkmated. Both sides of this tit for tat game have been at it for years and it gets a little stupid in one sense. I only have one question, why show the enemy what you’ve got, because he’ll only find a way to counter it. There is no doubt that both sides have some pretty clever technology, but you don’t let the other guy know about it till it’s necessary. Reminds me of Ninurta getting conned into going after Marduk or Anzu I forget which one, he wins but he didn’t like getting into a war, sounds like a new idea.

  6. I think the article is more of a propaganda type, good ol’ Pravda style. Doesnt have either any serious source to be backed, just some unknown Russian guys who are impossible to know what happened on the board of that destroyer, if such things really happened.

    I am from Romania and I saw here at news when our president visited the ship when it arrived here, they let people on board, including journalists that make pics in some areas of the ship, then they have few days of exercises with our Navy. Never heard of any problems or people signing their resignations there (is that even allowed in US Navy?).
    There is an international convention about the war ships of countries not from Black Sea, they can’t stay (during peace time) more then 3 weeks I think, thats why the ship leaved. Before was another American destroyer and now is a frigate, and some French spy ship was in Black Sea too, on the other side of it, in Georgia (Crimea is in the middle).

    I think the Russian plane just wanted to check the destroyer installations and flew around so be “locked” by the ship systems and to “read” and record then the radar frequencies and such. Because Americans didnt fall much for that and didnt turn on all their stuffs there to be recorded he insisted for a while flying around until the ship entered our teritorial waters and he needed to go back.
    I understand such things happened many times before too, especially during cold war times.

    Then some Russian decided to make a cool story with some secret uber weapon they supposedly have, put it on the internet and from Russian internet it spread further. I know quite few of such stories about “uber unconventional weapons” from Russia and even Romanian ones but they are more like myths and never possible to be verified from some oficial sources.

    I think a more interesting thing to look at from this perspective is that Russian Glonass satelite system was mysteriously put out of function (totally or partially) couple times this month, after Russia take Crimea and Ukrainian crisis becomed more hot

    1. I mean the article from Russian media is written in old Pravda style, if was any confusion (my English is not quite flawless). Not the Dr. Farell one

      1. Thank you for your contribution, Rad. Very enlightening coming from “a real source”, not some RT propaganda, and you make excellent points. I would make a very secure bet that few people who read your comment could make it in Romanian. Your English is just fine.

        1. Thank you too for your answer “justawhoaman”.
          And well, as that saying is, in war the truth is the first victim (for both sides). And as RT I understand is state owned and now pretty much all Russian media is controled by state or Putin oligarchs circle is obvious that they make too a propaganda at least from time to time (and for sure these days). And since the old KGB times they are usually (not always) very good at this.

          To not be get wrong, I dont have something against Russian ordinary people but for sure I dont have any good will for Russia as empire (in any form), they are not for sure the “force of light” in the world. And I do agree too that “western” groups/elites etc are not either the “good guys” many times, and have their sins. But I will take with a big grain of salt anything Russians say, especially now.

  7. The Cold War “game” of testing each other’s radar and targeting capability was often called “fox and hounds” on our side, and resulted in numreous confrontations, most of which never saw the light of day.

    This was a very direct and strong message to Washington that Moscow is no pushover – that the Pentagram’s vaunted “technowar” capability is NOT the top of the heap. It is dangerous to play any kind of chess game with Russia, because they are so much better at that game.

    Also, the memory of Russia’s experience in WW2 is much stronger than the US memory, and our experience did not include the kind of scorched earth mass slaughter that the Russian people experienced. They are tough customers and know it.

    Also, as Bearden has said, they made great progress with Whittaker’s work on scalar interfereometry, and, according to his mysterious sources, have had the capability to remotely take over and control computer systems for some time. This would appear to bear (no pun intended) that out, at least to some extent.

    We must also remember that Russia produces some of the world’s best non-linear mathematicians, and that would be a discipline required to use Whittaker’s work to greatest effect.

    I find it kind of humorous that the “pentagram-industrial compote’s” half-baked pride and joy (Aegis) was so easily defeated. Numerous people have pointeed out that making our armed forces so dependant on narrow lines of technology is a good way to make them extremely vulnerable when those technologies fail (which is far more often than they are willing to admit). Aegis equipped ships are just so much target steel when the Aegis system fails. They have very little in the way of backup armament, mostly small arms or radar-controlled canons (equally vulnerable to jamming, hence pretty useless under these conditions).

    Point made, and quite nicely, Vlad.

    I wonder if the part about 27 officers resigning was true . . . .

    It reminds me of all the computer (and related) technology here at home which tries to hide the actual functioning of the computer to supposedly make things “easier” to use, but only ends up making them fail more often and more mysteriously, and in reality makes them far more dificult and frustating to use. (Yes, Redmond, I’m talking about you.)

    Whenever anyone brings up automated planes or cars, or AI anything running without human oversight, I like to bring up the incident in South Africa where the automatic antiaircraft canon went berserk and killed a bunch of people at their big weapon demo.

    But I digress . . . .

  8. So, the question is, is will the US military go the way of Economy 2.0? Did the break-away element get all the 3.0 tech? Leaving US conventional forces with 2.0 levels of armament? Case in point, will the Nebraska Navy (3.0) come to the aid of our conventional forces? Or will our conventional forces be sacrificed in a conflict? My guess is that the NE Navy will only be used in a stealth manner to dump asteroids and cause earthquakes on the BRIIICSA.. Anti-grav propulsion will remain a serious black secret. Big Oil will remain king in 2.0 land. US conventional forces, will be sacrificed in yet another long protracted conflict, if for no other reason to increase MIC spending. Eisenhower hit this one on the head. War w/o End Amen is what FedGov.Inc.Thern lives for.. The other problem they have is how do they cull the Boomers and all the wounded war vets? ObamaCare was a start.

  9. So caught with pants down moment as usual for the US Military. Or were they trying to smoke out the Russian Military to see what they have up their sleeves. And the Russians obliged as usual I read a book years ago The Chinese Machiavelli that the Chinese do the same since the beginning of their history it’s a old Asian trick. Though the West has form time to time done the same thing.

  10. Well here is the thing. If you have been basically targeted as a nation for just over 1,000 years, as I commented on your previous article post about “Putin being caught in a trap,”which is laughable, and you know this game so well, from the “christian” Crusades destruction of the Christian Orthodox city of Constantinople, the burning at the stake during the Inquisition by you know who, Napoleon’s attempted destruction of Russia, the Bolshevik Zionist wipe out to atheism and communism, Hitler, the fall of your country and economy in 1991 thanks to one Leo Wanta and then the total crash of your economy on 1999, I think you would not only be very well prepared but very, very, very irritated. That I think is still an understatement. As for this fly bye, … the west had better wake up and fast. It was merely a toe in the water. If they really want Russia to dive in they are going to have their work cut out for them. The dollar has already been circumvented and billions and soon trillions of USTreasuries dumped. If I was Russian after almost 1,000 years of this stupidity I would be very angry indeed.

    1. Gail, your thoughts were very well put, and as one who has read quite a bit about Russia and what has been done to it, I agree totally with what you say. Russia will indeed be angry, and so tired of the intense propaganda that paints it as the evil country.

  11. Here is the carefully worded “USSA” propaganda take on the visit, omitting any mention of Russia, while stressing that the ship was in the Black Sea “in accordance with international law” in order to “promote peace and stability” (lol). And, significantly, saying that the vessel’s departure was “scheduled” just in case anyone had the audacity to hint that there had been a hasty withdrawal…
    http://www.navy.mil/submit/display.asp?story_id=80584

    1. Right, the US certainly has such weapons. And very likely on this exact ship.

      Also this US ship does NOT carry a crew of only 27.

      This article is similar to some of the Rambo movies, where the other side, the US in this case, is just equipped and manned by the foolish and unprepared. Sort of akin to US right wing fantasies of the other side crumbling in the face of US tech.

  12. While I’m sure that Russia has such weapons and the weapons can at least be targeted, if not carried by a small plane–it’s a delusion on the part of the article to think the US doesn’t have such weapons.

    But much bigger problems:

    The article is incredibly badly written, with next to no sourcing one could check (except that yes the US broke a treaty by keeping warships in the Black Sea for an extended period). The biggest flaw: The US ship had a crew of 27? This last is so wrong that one that it calls the entire article into question.

    Now, since the USA warship’s AGEIS system is a phased array radar system attached to powerful (for the 1990s) computers, it is very very likely that US ships having such radar systems carry very similar weapons to that ostensibly carried or targeted by the plane. So it is very unlikely that officers aboard this ship would react in any such manner if such a weapon were used against the ship’s systems.

    So if there’s any reality here, it’s that this article is set up as misdirection from/for something else.
