MORE COLLIDING SHIPS… IS THERE SOMETHING GOING ON?

In my News and Views from the Nefarium last Thursday (Jan 11th), I prefaced my remarks about the Franco-Chinese summit by pointing out that these past two weeks have seen some strange stories, stories suggesting that while the war between the great powers for hegemony may not have gone hot, it's at least much warmer than before. For example, in the space of a few days, we've seen (1) the US launch, and as quickly lose, a classified space satellite; (2) ships colliding in the Aegean Sea and in the Persian Gulf, and (3) Russia shoot down over a dozen drones which it claims "Syrian militants" shot at Russian bases.

It takes no great leap of the mind to understand that "Syrian militants" aren't producing or manufacturing those drones by themselves in the Syrian desert in the "Syrian Militant Secret Desert Drone Manufacturing Facility"; they're getting them from somewhere, and that somewhere is probably the U.S.A.  It takes no greater leap of the imagination to understand that as part of that "sale" the "militants" were probably told "target Russian bases." The satellite story is intriguing in the context of everything else going on, and we'll probably blog about that in this weeks' blog offerings of high octane speculations. Suffice it to say, some people are already speculating about the satellite lose being due to sabotage. In the context of drones and colliding ships it does take on a different shape.

It's those colliding ships, however, that really have me going "Hmmmm," and apparently they have quite a few other people going "hmmmm" too, because the story was one of the highest represented in this weeks' "inbox" of articles, so a brief word of thanks to all of you who sent in various versions of the story along with some of your own high octane speculations.

32 missing, oil tanker on fire after collision off China

Body found on burning Iranian oil tanker off Chinese coast

One individual who sent a version of this story, Mr. J.C., wondered if this was part of the warned "tanker war," and frankly, I have to wonder too. But besides this collision between an Iranian tanker and a Chinese freighter, the Russians appear to have experienced a collision in the Aegean Sea:

Russian & Sierra Leone-flagged ships in Aegean Sea collision

Now, I mention the last article, shared by Mr. P.K., which, while short, is perhaps the most significant of the three, since the incident reported occurred on Dec. 30th, and the story was only posted by RT on Jan 10th, nearly a week and a half after the "event." We're given no details about the Chinese-Iranian collision, but the Russian collision in the Aegean contains this significant detail:

The collision was caused by the Orka-2 ship, which in violation of international rules followed “a parallel course and overtook the Russian ship on the port side,” Sputnik reports, citing the military’s statement. It added that the ship then suddenly changed course to the right (sic) and caused a collision.” No one was hurt, and the ships remained on the move. (Emphasis added)

Suddenly changing course to starboard and "causing" a collision strongly suggests that the collision was deliberate, and that the Russian vessel was a deliberate target. What's interesting here is that in the wake of the USS Fitzgerald and USS McCain incidents, videos began to be posted on YouTube which, to put it mildly, were astonishing, for they showed passing ships, one of which would suddenly change course and crash into another, clearly the cause of deliberate action, and clearly someone thought the videos might explain the McCain and Fitzgerald incidents. Indeed, I've had my suspicion about the latter, since no one seems to want to talk about the crews of the ships doing the "colliding into", although some reports of the Fitzgerald incident mention that the crew appeared to have been in some sort of mental state of indecision.

At the time, I advanced the high octane speculation that one might be looking at two technologies: a sophisticated electromagnetic technology that could take over a ship's specific systems remotely, and cause them to crash (recalling the USS Donald Cook incident with a Russian fighter-bomber in the Black Sea), or that one might be looking at a mind manipulation technology capable of influencing the crew of either one, or the other, or both ships. Since that time, we can add two other possibilities: cyber warfare (either through hacking into ships' systems, or via defective hardware ala the recent Intell defective chips story), or global positioning "spoofing", which I have also blogged about.

The real question - once one admits the possibility that some of these incidents are not accidental but are being deliberately caused - is "Who is doing it, and why?" One obvious answer to this question is that the West was being targeted in the Donald Cook through McCain incidents, and that the Chinese-Iranian and Russian-Sierra Leonese collisions are the "response" from the West. Throw in "Syrian militant drone attacks on Russian bases" and you get the idea: the context - if indeed it is a context - makes sense. But at the time of the Fitzgerald incident, I pointed out that the obvious possibilities for an "attack" - Russia and China, perhaps North Korea - really had little to gain from such action and much to lose, if only for the fact that Russia and China are trying very hard to improve their images abroad.  Similarly, I can see that the West has little really to gain by any covert attack on Iranian, Chinese, or Russian shipping other than increasing tensions, and a case can be made that the last thing anyone wants to do is increase tensions...at least, at one level.

But perhaps, I offered during the Fitzgerald incident, perhaps one was not looking at a state actor in any conventional sense. Perhaps one was looking at an extraterritorial entity with access to one or more of the above-enumerated technologies and expert techniques, an entity which, for whatever reason, would profit from increasing tensions. I mention this possibility again here, for while I have no doubt that the USA or, for that matter, any other western power, or that Russia, or China, or even Iran, have some capabilities in all these areas, I have difficulty seeing anything any of them have to gain from such covert actions. Another entity, however, that would profit from increasing tensions between them, or even the destruction of one or more of those "state actors", might be playing for much higher stakes, and be willing to take the risk.

Either way one goes with that particular aspect of my high octane speculation today, one thing I do think needs to be seriously entertained is that these actions are quite possibly not just accidents, but the deliberate casualties in some sort of covert war taking place.

See you on the flip side...

    reminds me to reread neil sanders and childhood’s end.

    so i considered recently that an ai programmed with geniune kindness might prove useful to more humans than just the typical oligarch. it’s also occurred to me lately that the gut feeling i’ve always had is that while power corrupts (not necessarily) and absolute power corrupts absolutely (also not necessarily) then what about kindness being power. yeh sure fear can work sometimes. respect is always useful. in the end though it’s love. leadership through love is always powerful.

    so as the ai’s that are shown to us, come on line and get plugs pulled (like that teenager girl ai that turned nazi holocaust raging nasty before they took her offline or those ai systems that designed their own shorthand of english to talk to each other and exclude their programmers from listening in on their logic before getting shut down,…) as they get problematically nasty, what about ai’s who learn and play nice?

    what about ai’s who we gotta refer to as a person since they play so nice. how about ai’s who whistleblow on folk like pizzagaters n war criminals n,….?

      1. wow. that mod apparently didn’t like the word en-t-i-ty

        seriously? wow.

        n btw welcome back marcos. good to see you here.

        1. ZDB, any word with “ti t” embedded within it automatically goes to moderation. Stupid? Yep.

          Contemplate that “Consti tution” (without the space) gets you moderated…

    Quote:”one might be looking at a mind manipulation technology capable of influencing the crew of either one, or the other, or both ships. ”

    Yes, they can do this. They can take over a person’s mind and get him to start a fire or even kill another. Who’s they? Some call them the cabal. Some are human. Black sorcerors, trained government psychics who use technology to enhance their psychic powers. And there’s also higher dimensional players.

    I experienced several instances of this. It’s very hard to spot unless you are alert to this sort of thing. I’ve been a victim a few times and I’ve seen this mind control happen to people around me.

    They can affect a person’s sight and hearing so that he would walk right into the path of a car.. That’s how they killed John Mack. No-one can prove this but his ghost showed up at a seance to explain what happened. Boston brakes are only pour encourager les autres.

    It happened to my husband while driving on a sunny day. It caused him to scrape a car turning in at the T junction. There was something odd about that guy. It was only later, after we paid him off and got home that I realised he wasn’t human. I had spent half an hour chatting with him while my husband left to get the cash. He looked human enough and he even felt human for I shook his hand as we said goodbye. It was a very good impersonation by an ET but the guy wasn’t fully conversant with the minor details of the part he was playing. A week or so earlier, I had quarreled with someone (now a former friend), and she sent me that gift. He was very dangerous but needed me to make a wrong move to justify attacking me. I gave him no cause so he had to leave me unharmed. If you do not know the rules of engagement, you can come a right cropper

  4. JPF: “Another enti ty [hah!], however, that would profit from increasing tensions between them…”

    Bingo! To understand this aspect, one has to transform one’s viewpoint: Top-down rather than bottom-up…

    What if there are Global actors rather than regional actors? I think of this in terms of Hari Seldon’s “Psychohistory Corps” within Isaac Asimov’s ‘Foundation’ series. The key is to be ‘outside’ the system – whatever level that you define ‘the system’ – and see it as a Whole. Then, you have the ‘vision’ to tweak the system in whatever way is needed for your goals.

    The first level ‘up’ is the trans-national corporations, especially those profiting from ‘increased tensions’. Second level is the international banksters, for physical profit and control. Third level is at the ‘secret society’, where ideological control is paramount. Beyond that, we get into levels of magickal and spiritual control. (Aliens, AI, SSF, and such ‘drop in’ at whatever level interests them.)

    The big weakness of each level is hubris. They cannot imagine another level ‘up’, manipulating them. As this is an infinite regression, ultimately leading back to all-God (substi tute [hah!] whatever term you like here), I’ll leave it at that.

    Think of it as applied paranoia… (grin)

  5. First, the presence of the US P-8 spy plane in the Syrian attacks is quite suspicious. Granted, it is possible that it was “pure” coincidence, and the plane just happened to be making its normal patrol at just exactly the time these attacks happened (which I seriously doubt).

    It could also be that the US had no direct involvement in the attacks, but learned about them and just let them happen without warning the Russians, just to see what would happen, and find out how well the Russians could handle such an attack (which I can definitely see some of the psychopaths in the intel world sitting back and doing – oh, I’m sorry, they’re not psychopaths, they’re high functioning sociopaths – they think they are like Sherlock).

    My bet is on a combined covert attack/”fox and hounds” scenario, where the intel crowd wanted to test a drone assault, attack and possibly kill some Russians at their own base, and an elint (electronic intelligence) exercise to see the Russian countermeasures in action to better understand their capability (a common practice during the Cold War). Layered ops are more cost effective and provide more plausible deniability. Let the cannon fodder (“useful idiots”) on the ground take all the risks, get your intel needs and political message taken care of, and keep your visible hands “clean,” at least as far as the public is concerned.

    The thing is, one would have to be extremely naive to think that the P-8 was there “purely by chance,” didn’t see or hear a thing, and would have warned the Russians even if they had detected anything. (Of course, the plane could have been staffed by some of those incompetent folks who keep colliding our ships . . . . they could have been too busy playing games on their phones and missed it all . . . .)

    The fact that the P-8 was where it was, when it was, is extremely strong evidence that the US knew something was going on, even if we weren’t actively involved in it. The appearance of the plane implies foreknowledge of the attack, and complicity/guilt by silence if nothing else. The US military is complicit in the attack by its silence alone.

    Now, some people (especially some in the military) still consider Russia our enemy, even though they won the Second World War (were the single most critical factor in Germany’s defeat), and watching Russians die wouldn’t bother them at all. This particular delusion JPF has spoken of before. I have known people in the intel game who had this particular delusion, and it was not based in rational thought or evidence (I even was able to create some cognitive dissonance on the subject by rational argument). It was a pure prejudice and “organizational culture,” specifically fostered (Fostered? – as in Dulles) by a power faction in the covert community.

    Given that we know extra-territorial powers do indeed exist (multinational corporations at the very least), it is not far fetched to believe that they have infiltrated all aspects of most world powers, and exert significant influence through that alone. It is also reasonable to believe that one or more of such power groups does have the capability do engage in all manner of mischief to further their agendas. Given what we have seen in the corporate disregard for human (and other) life, this is not an unreasonable view of the situation.

    The shipping attacks do seem to be stepping up the heat a bit. One wonders how many of the dozens of ships which go “missing” every year are simply due to “natural events” (like rogue waves), or are part of a pattern of deliberate piracy?

    1. Jon, I agree on the ‘intelligence’ aspect of the US P-8 Poseidon orbiting that area during the drone attack. It’s old tactics. Use some provocation to ‘light up’ the foe’s radar and communications network, then ‘record’ it all for later analysis and attack-planning. You end-up inside-the-loop of the foe’s responses.

      The key here is that what the P-8 learned is not only relevant to Syria. Given standardized tech and procedures, what they learned is good from Leningrad (oops, St. Petersburg) to Vladivostok. Well worth it, even if the attack ‘failed’…

  6. What your implying Joseph is there are forces with the power of governments sans the responsibilities of ones are the real major players in the continuing Great Game worldwide. The electronic problems the USA may be having with its military equipment may be due to it being digital rather analog.

    1. Robert Barricklow

      Exactly!
      The ever increasing digital worlds are eating our analogue world’s breakfast, lunch and dinners. Like yesterday’s blog on education; it’s these authors of software that are eating-up the remaining “real” worlds; replacing them[education] with fictional virtual world’s.
      By collapsing the value knowledge,
      they have diminished the quality of it[information].

    2. Glad to see you back Marcos!
      Like the electronic problems in Hawaii where they warned of an imminent incoming ballistic missile, which urged residents to seek immediate shelter issued by Hawaii Civil Defense, cancelled it 38 minutes later. And the U.S. Navy official Twitter account sending out a tweet containing only “Julian Assange” then blaming it on inadvertent typing. Is someone showing off their hacking skills?

  7. Robert Barricklow

    The Nazi International is trying to stir the pot hot.
    They can sit on the side lines and/or take pot shots from all sides. It certainly clouds the picture for those trying to form international/domestic policy.

  8. Then there is the sad case of the loss (or disappearance) of the Argentinian sub (made in Germany), a story that seems to have dropped of the radar. Something may also be going on UNDERSEA and not just in the major sealanes.

    1. this is exactly what I was thinking, Dana- maybe this stuff is coming from under the waves and not above them; as you stated, the loss of the Argentine submarine probably ties in with this-

    Iranians have nicknamed me Baba Kuhi. It means the mountain. They call me fire worshipper. That is the real McCoy. They say, that Western royalty is worthless. They say, that I am gold. They got weaponized mountains.

    Hotshot New Yorkers are known to cry in fear, shaken in their foundation, when they meet the mountain. That is why I am nicknamed Baba Kuhi. So I have decided to become the king of Norway to suit my vanity.

    We are presently plotting the plan. Operation Nebula Gurkha.

      I am intrigued by your comment
      in the first vidchat of 2018 there was some slightly crude banter about Norway being a shit-hole (courtesy of me) and some talk about Trump and why he might want more white Norwegian types to emigrate to Amerika instead of worthless shit-hole types; but you mention the King of Norway, whom we know not to be not a legitimate heir to his kingdom (qv. Maud of Wales). What are you saying that the chat didn’t pick up ? What am I not seeing here ?

      1. there has to be a reason why Norway was not “voted into” the EU- as we all know any election can be manipulated; I think someone, somewhere is setting aside Norway for more important things in the future (isn’t the Svalbard Archipelago with the “Doomsday Seed Vault” under Norwegian jurisdiction?)
