Ever since the USS Donald Cook incident, there's been growing concern - finally being voiced by American and Western military leaders - that Russia's capabilities in electronic warfare, and in particular the ability to jam western communications and radar - is far more sophisticated than once thought, and now the concerns are over new "invisibility" technologies Russia is allegedly developing:

What interests me here is something far beyond the invisibility assertion. What interests me rather are the assessments of Russian capabilities, first revealed in the USS Donald Cook incident. You'll recall that an old Russian Sukhoi-24 fighter bomber approached the US naval frigate in the Black Sea, when suddenly the ship's electronics and computer systems went down. The Russian jet then made no less than twelve passes over the American ship on mock attack runs. At the time, US authorities denied the two events were linked, even as the Donald Cook made for the nearest Rumanian port of Constanza for "rest and repairs", also, we were assured, having nothing to do with the incident. In short, we were being told that the old Russian fighter has nothing whatsoever to do with the equipment and electronics failure on the frigate.

Nothing to see here, nothing to be concerned about, move along.

But now, if one reads the article closely, it appears that some military leaders are challenging that narrative:

Lieutenant General Ben Hodges, the commander of the US army in Europe, has described Russian advances in electronic warfare in Syria and Ukraine – a field in which they were typically supposed to be backward – as “eye watering”.

[…] Moscow is now deploying anti-aircraft systems in Crimea… It is doing so, he says, in a way that makes it “very, very difficult” for Nato planes to gain access safely to areas including parts of Poland. 

Mr Putin has relished pointing out the significance of the West seeing “for the first time that these weapons do exist, that they are of high quality, and that we have well-trained people who can put them to effective use. They have now seen, too, that Russia is ready to use them…”

The article itself goes on to put this in perspective:

These unbelievably powerful applications in electromagnetic (EMF) warfare are game changers, and Russia has made significant strides in dominating the war zones of the future, for better or worse.

Russia has been shutting down and disabling U.S. ships and equipment around the world.

So where's the high octane speculation here?

Well, note that Russia has been revealing and using these technologies operationally and tactically, not strategically. But their mere existence and the Russians' willingness to reveal their existence by demonstrable use, against American targets, has got to have the midnight oil burning in the Pentagram and American intelligence agencies. And what probably has them concerned is, given the fact that the Russians were supposed to be "behind" in such capabilities, when in fact, they're demonstrably not, raises the stakes and implications considerably, for this might mean it has an unrevealed strategic capability of a similar nature. and such an unrevealed strategic capability would mean that those neocon hopes and deliberations for "first strike" use of nuclear weapons might not turn out so well. To put it as plainly as possible, one might launch a flight of ICBMs toward Russian targets, only to see them fly wildly off target in crazy directions, like a bunch of very expensive bottle rockets ignited in a fireworks stand and flying all over the place. Indulging in this high octane speculation a bit more, it might even mean (for those in the "analysis community" whose job it is to think in wildly out-of-the-box in Dr. Strangelove fashion) that the Russians might even have a remote electromagnetic means of the premature detonation of nuclear weapons, shortly after launch, or perhaps even on the launch pad.

Whether or not these extreme scenarios are true or not is, in one sense, rather moot, but rest assured, whether technically feasible or not, analysts are thinking them nonetheless, for after all, the Russians weren't supposed to be able to do even what they have done.

The real point, however, is that Russia has been busily sending messages in the last couple of years, not only with Syria, not only with the Ukraine, but by demonstrating these capabilities. And if one is inclined to the view that the recent hacking spree in the USA is of Russian inspiration as well, then that message is all too clear: think twice, before continuing down the road of your current policy.

And notably, it's a message that is intensifying as the USA draws nearer to its elections.

See you on the flip side...

    The Russians are interesting, in that they are not ‘bound’ by the paradigms of the West. (Their Central Bank excluded.) This intellectual freedom gives them the space to come up with wild and wacky ideas that sometimes pan out. (Most Western folks do not know that the F-117 “stealth fighter” came about because of a Russian radar paper translated and given to a US contractor.) This can lead from ESP-ish capabilities to truly-exotic weaponry (forbidden physics)…

    Another angle has to do with Russia’s geopolitical situation. On the one hand, they are primarily concerned with defense of their nation, rather than empire-building. This leads to certain decisions on how to direct R&D. On the other hand, they have much less capital to just throw around. This leads to concentration on strengths, rather than to covering all bases. In reference to Joseph’s article, all the above can lead to an emphasis on electronic warfare as a ‘core competency’.

    In recognition of the above, US weapons are being re-rigged to function without GPS guidance. (Inertial gyros.) This means that US planners have given-up on GPS being reliably-available.

    I am curious to see whether Russian scientists have concentrated on modern fighters’ weakness: all fighters are built ‘unstable’ in terms of control-ability to gain quicker response times. Shut down or ‘kill’ the redundant flight-control computers, and you have an uncontrollable aircraft. Reminds me of the Colonial fighters versus the Cylon fighters in the first Cylon attack (“Battlestar Galactica”, mark II)…

    Two Chinese Colonels in 1999 wrote something to the effect/In the wars of the coming decades soldiers will increasingly be computer hackers, financiers, terrorists, drug smugglers, and agents of private corporations as well as members of organized state militaries. Their weapons will range from airplanes, cannons, poison gas, bombs, and biochemical agents to computer viruses, net browsers, and financial derivative tools. Warriors will soon transcend all boundaries and limits: the battlefield will be everywhere; and the boundaries between the two worlds – war & non-war; military & non-military – will be totally obliterated… everywhere.

    This comment is unrelated to this post but I was listening to josephs interview on otherside of midnight about 9/11. I was thinking how interesting it would be if there are recordings of Dick Cheney communicatons in the bunker with Bush and other,s we could then decipher a lot of things from those recordings if they exist. Similar to the tapes from air force one during jfk assasination.

      Thanks totally proved my point. Thia is taking you a step further following the crumbs or can you see only one thing at a time with no forward view but you are not interested in your own extinction of all life on this planet so be it. go back to burying your heads in the sand it is none of our business then?

      I wonder why you could not work out where this is leading yet you bring up JFK 22nd November 1963 and the trickster Dick sure i can see what you mean with unrelated now totally fools who say one thing when pointing the finger then do the same such odd logic that just saying

  4. Blue Dragon Lord on August 25, 2016 at 9:45 pm

    Surely no one can really be surprised about this according to the age old prophecy that the king of the south releases four EMP bombs over the whore of Babylon the so called four horsemen of the appocolyps which I understood was USA in the end times which is surely upon us putting Babylon into darkness and silence pride does come before the fall of a nation is this not so.

    Well those Russians do like to keep up with tradition and have long since known of this prophecy which others may have discounted as it was not in their favor giving it the blind eye with the right wing branch of those Christians egging them on letting them know just in case they did not before.

    The silent killer knocking that nation back to the stone age and according to what was foretold many shall come against them for all their arrogance and dark secrets siding with the enemies of all mankind has not gone in their favor I dare say well that is what I heard but what do I know just a watcher so it is none of my business we can only point out the obvious but we know no one listens.

    It is the nature of mankind this giant ego never can admit failure we shall see how that works out for them and not that I subscribe to any of these man made faiths that enslaves the minds of mankind but at least I have read all of these holy books that make fools of the many best cover up of the real truth even better than the so called UFO non disclosure one another of those open secrets that every one knows right.

    All sides are holding what they believe to be aces.
    Still, in the end; Where do the common people stand in this power gain. Is any side for the people? Or, is which crime family comes out on top?
    Speaking of which; On Wednesday, Turkey military supported U.S. warplanes and hundreds of U.S. backed terrorist falsely called moderate rebels. ISIS is Turkey’s ally. Turkey was given the green light to fight Kurdish fighters America claims to support.
    Two U.S. war ships also entered Iranian waters in the straights.
    So the conventional wars continue as if the power structures haven’t learned anything new. It’s War Profiteering/business as usual.

  6. Neru on August 25, 2016 at 4:31 pm

    Would Mr Putin when he came into power put together a broad scientific unrestricted brainstorm taskforce. If it worked before why not today?
    The Western part of the world is so fragmented in rivalry multi nationals which tearing know how to thin.

    This is a little bit funny, when you watch the ancient equipment, used by Donbass fighters. Seems that they have not an overwhelming support of Kremlin:

  8. zephyr on August 25, 2016 at 2:18 pm

    Mr. Putin suggested several years ago that we should be partners in stopping the jihadists. These reprehensible neocons are too blind to see that the group they so love to hate are almost like us. I’m speaking racially, culturally and behaviorally. One doesn’t go to their usual news source and read another Russian has just (insert whatever heinous means of murder you choose) another innocent person or persons. The neocons expect to survive a nuclear exchange from within their bunkers with the added advantage of fulfilling the adages on the Georgia Guide Stones. HRC should not be elected. She is the most frightening person ever to be this close to the Presidency.

  9. marcos toledo on August 25, 2016 at 11:22 am

    Russia China don’t play around war is definitely no game for them. They been around to long to understand what losing really means. Besides that is their homes their defending not stolen property like Britain and the Americas, Australia, New Zealand.

  10. loisg on August 25, 2016 at 10:44 am

    Why would any country flaunt their technology for all the world to see? All that is going to do is cause any potential enemies to step up their own defensive capabilities. And if we can assume they are further advanced than what they are displaying, then so does the DOD, and I’m sure they have a very good idea of where Russia actually is with their weaponry, no matter what is being said publicly. I truly don’t understand why anyone would show their cards like that.

    • Blue Dragon Lord on August 25, 2016 at 10:12 pm

      The traditional shot across the bow is thought of as fair warning not really showing off more do not mess with me i think that is the case here with other so far behind perhaps and every one like to test their new toys before going to play in the big game it is only prudent.

      before they dropped Little Boy from the Enola Gay did not doctor Oppinhiemer do some testing in the desert this is just the same i believe as it is the custom like German planes drive bombing in the Spanish civil war test runs are common place.

  11. T.J. on August 25, 2016 at 8:59 am

    At the National Press Club in Washington DC on August 17, Mehran T. Keshe claimed that Russia & Iran use electromagnetic/gravitic technologies derived from Keshe’s public disclosures for defensive purposes (e.g., Russia’s Su-24 disabling of Aegis-class USS Donald Cook electronics and Iran’s downing of a U.S. drone). Russia’s A2AD (Anti-Access/Area-Denial) defensive electronic “bubbles” over Syria & Ukraine are other examples.

    U.S. DoD has adequate defenses against electromagnetic jamming but apparently does not have adequate defenses against electrogravitic jamming. U.S. DoD is now researching & developing its own defensive electrogravitic capabilities — some based on Keshe’s public disclosures.

    Keshe’s disclosures appear to have significant energy, health & agricultural applications. In the near future, as per Keshe Foundation staff, they will probably do a ‘free energy’ demonstration for U.S. DoD in the DC metro area.

    • WalkingDead on August 25, 2016 at 10:11 am

      I would imagine, in our black projects world, we have similar technologies which they will not release due to the hold the agriculture, petroleum, and power companies have over the government. It’s all about the money, using up everyone else’s resources, and squeezing every last dollar out of the general population first.
      Maybe then we will see the benefit of some of this technology.

      • chimera on August 25, 2016 at 10:36 am

        T.J., A lot of people have built examples using Keshe’s diagrams/blueprints, and none of what he says his equipment can do, can be reproduced by anyone else. Not to say that the Russians (and other countries and/or corporations) don’t have this type of equipment. Those entities, after all, are supported by a huge amount of black money worldwide. In my opinion, for what it is worth, Keshe is just a distraction by the globalists. Keep the masses doing busy work and hoping to engineer their own salvation from the globalists. Pie in the sky bull pucky!

      • T.J. on August 25, 2016 at 12:25 pm

        WD: We don’t need the black projects world to release “similar technologies.” Keshe & others are publicly releasing these technologies without patents or restrictions.

        Applying for U.S. over-unity patents has roadblocks. Keshe & other inventors are foregoing the patent process.

        Keshe technologies are NOT yet fully verified & replicated, which is necessary before widespread simple manufacturing & use of what appears to be a 5KW Keshe electric generator (+/-$100).

        • WalkingDead on August 26, 2016 at 6:58 pm

          Releasing his technology without patents may be a huge mistake. It leaves the technology open for someone else to patent, thus leaving him virtually screwed. The most likely entities that would do this are the same ones that have always bought up innovative technologies and suppressed them.
          I wish him the best, but fear the worst.

    • Lost on August 25, 2016 at 10:31 am

      Keshe isn’t saying anything new.

  12. WalkingDead on August 25, 2016 at 8:19 am

    Anyone familiar with the Tom Bearden website would understand that the capabilities they are displaying are not the most advanced technology they possess. For a better understanding of these technologies, I refer you to this article posted on his site:

    Apparently, the West is just now realizing that they may be farther behind than they could have possibly imagined. These weapons use Tesla type technology and may even be more advanced than what even he was capable of in the early nineteenth century; and apparently the Russians aren’t the only ones who possess these type of weapons.
    We have gotten lazy in our arrogance and hubris; too busy using others to fight our wars of aggression for us; and too dependent on corporations more interested in profits than producing quality products for our military. Look no farther than the F-35 fiasco for proof of that, and the recent number of military aircraft falling out of the skies. It seems that we can’t even keep what we have maintained well enough to keep them flying anymore.
    Our only hope may be that “secret space program” with its advanced craft, should they even exist. But then, that will depend on whether those who may be operating them are capable, or even willing, to actually use them in defense of this nation.
    The criminal cabal in Washington has made it apparent they care nothing for the welfare of those they supposedly govern. Should Hitlery gain the highest office in the land, everything will be up for sale to the highest bidder through her pay to play schemes and “charitable” foundation.

    • Lost on August 25, 2016 at 10:30 am

      Oh, I don’t think there’s any doubt the US possesses similar weapons, thought they’re not in the official military inventory.

      And various other parties have the too.

    • Sandygirl on August 25, 2016 at 2:48 pm

      I was Very surprised to see one of those advanced craft this morning at 4:00 when I went out to look at the moon and stars on my back porch. At first I thought it was a bright star and then a plane but without blinking lights, I watched it cover the sky faster than a plane flys, then it slowed way down and stops. It does a half circle and starts flying again in the same direction and then just disappears. I live in the country so not much light pollution. Quite a sight to see!!!

  13. Lost on August 25, 2016 at 7:38 am

    Hard to take seriously a source that’s saying “and buy (stockpile) gold” at the top.

    These weapons have existed for decades–really can’t imagine that very senior US commanders don’t know that the Soviets+Russians had/have these weapons. Perhaps the Russians have decided to disclose some of them.

  14. Kahlypso on August 25, 2016 at 7:03 am

    This makes me think of ‘UFO’s buzzing nuclear missile sites and computer systems going down faster than .. something really fast. And going back to Medvedev’s comments about telling the truth about the Aliens.. and Russia has some GREAT anti missile technology. like Forcefield style..
