UK MEDIA ON IRAN: THE RUSSIANS DID IT

UK MEDIA ON IRAN: THE RUSSIANS DID IT

K.J. found this one, and it's left my jaw hanging open. I suppose that if you're like me, it was only a matter of time before some part of the lamestream corporate-controlled Western media got around to blaming Russia for Iran's attacks on tankers in the Persian Gulf, in this case, media in the UK, the same country whose media has been scrambling to convince everyone that Mad Vlad was behind the Skripal case as well. But Russia behind the Iran thing? Guilt by association, I suppose. But lots of countries do business with Tehran, including China and India, but so far, no one's blaming them, just Russia. But there's something that bothers in this story, actually, quite a few things, so today I'm going to kick off the week with some high octane speculation, because in my opinion, something isn't passing the smell test in this whole Iran thing:

UK Media Found ‘Russian Trace’ In Recent Tanker Seizure By Iran

If you're like me, you can probably think of quite a few reasons why Russia would goad Tehran into seizing tankers, and quite a few reasons why they wouldn't be involved in any way. Just to give two simple examples: on the "they would do it side", there's the price of oil. Creating tensions in the Gulf drives up the price of oil, and that benefits Russia. On the "why they wouldn't do it side," instability in the region is not what Russia and China and India need in order to complete their long term goals. (That last one might be a reason for some long-term concern and midnight-oil burning in Tehran, for if those countries decide the regime is a liability to their long term plans...well... you know where I'm going with that one.)

But back to the main point here: according to the article, some in the UK suspect that Russia "hacked the systems" in those tankers, and provided false coordinates both to the British and to the Iranians:

Following that, British media began to stir hysteria, that actually the British tanker was steered towards Iranian waters to be captured by false GPS coordinates sent by “Russian spy technology.”

This was reported by the Sunday Mirror, which citing anonymous security sources aid that the GCHQ and MI6 were investigating whether Iranian intelligence transmitted spoof signals to the skipper of the Stena Impero.

According to reports, a Royal Navy warship attempted to assist the tanker, but it arrived “10 minutes too late,” to do what exactly in Iranian territorial waters is unclear.

...

Anonymous security sources said that Iranian drones may have tampered with GPS signals.

...

Of course, Russia’s involvement can’t happen without “evil overlord” Russian President Vladimir Putin’s approval. And the “evidence” that such a meddling may have taken place is that MI6 and other Western intelligence agencies have discovered that Russia has the technology to fool ships into false location recordings.

This relates to an earlier report which found out that wherever Putin goes, GPS stops working.

So, it could potentially “make sense” (surprisingly how UK media haven’t come up with that yet) that Vladimir Putin was on some private cruise vacation in the Persian Gulf and that’s why the Stena Impero moved into Iranian waters. (Boldface emphasis in the original)

So, if this article is true in its basic outlines, then the incident was caused by someone with (1) the capability to hack into ship board computer systems and (2) the ability to project false GPS readings, and, in an implicit admission not covered in the article, (3) the ability to project false radar returns (you'll have to think about that one for a moment). Those three requirements narrow the possible players down to just a few countries, and a few non-state actors (e.g., corporations and so on).

The problem that I have is that you'll recall Iran supposedly did this to a Japanese tanker, while the Japanese Prime Minister was visiting Tehran. I found it very unlikely that - crazy and nutty as the mullahs in Tehran are - that they would be so crazy as to pull a stunt like that. But wait, apparently they had a similar impeccable sense of timing with the seizure of the British ships:

Iran seizes two British tankers and makes a huge mistake

Note this paragraph towards the beginning:

Acting against the British while the U.K. and Iranian foreign ministers were seeking compromise over Britain's recent seizure of an Iranian tanker, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps have further isolated Iran on the international stage. With a multinational naval task force for tanker escorts likely to be announced next week, the Iranians are increasingly outgunned and diplomatically isolated. Losing a drone to a U.S. warship on Thursday, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps is also now aware of American red lines against threats to U.S. life.

One wonders if, in fact, that hacking and sending false GPS coordinates scenario might have some traction - just take Russia out of the mix, and leave the "who is doing this?" part of the equation blank for a moment. With that in mind, let's recall that Europe's GPS system went down for a few days, more or less around the time of the Iranian incidents, and we were told that this was another "incident" (the  technical term is "glitch ex machina") in the technical  infrastructure on the ground:

Europe's Galileo GPS system back after six-day outage

Europe's version of GPS suffers major outage Technical issues on the ground blamed

The timing of the stories is intriguing, to say the least, since the European GPS stories appeared on July 16th and 18th, and the tankers were seized on July 19th. Needless to say, I suspect that you, the reader, knows already what my high octane speculation is: namely, that the Iran-tanker story and the European satellite GPS outage stories are somehow related, and that events are being manipulated by someone; the kooky mullahs in Tehran might indeed be that crazy, but I strongly suspect that much bigger players are on the field here, trying to drive both Iran and the West into actions that benefit neither party. (And while we're at it, I might as well leap off the end of the twig and draw a couple more connections, and say that I suspect the USS Fitzgerald and USS John McCain incidents may have been dress rehearsals for what we see going on now.)

See you on the...

...oh, wait. Did I mention that K.J. also found this story about someone hacking into Russia's security agency, the FSB?

Massive Data Leak From Russian FSB Reveals Nothing New, But Sheds Light On Cyber Security Problem

Ok... now I'm done.

See you on the flip side...

  1. Ran across this David Icke video today.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pGk0DVBZkE
    Jimmy Saville, Jeffrey Epstein, Madeline McCann & Elite Chomo Rings – David Icke

    I have far more respect for Johnny Rotten than I do for Icke. Icke’s ties to Blavatsky and Lucis Trust that he now avoids are bothersome. At best he feels like a Luciferian disclosure op. Either way, most of the time, what he says usually proves out in large part. That being said, why this context popped for me is that with all the Epstein media rush I took a break last week and watched a vid on how goofy Prince Charles is. I did not know what a geek he’s been, nor about Montbatton, nor about much about Diana and did not really want to know.

    I knew a bit about her assassination because of a previous interest in Kashoggi’s. What popped this vid of Icke’s was his notes on Saville being tapped to be the marital consultant / go-between to patch up the devolving marriage. And she’d already openly let it be known what a creep she thought Saville was. How aggressively messed up is that?

    Whoever owned Saville (and it clearly wasn’t Montbatton) is not a friend of the royals. And probably still owns the control files on his clients. Willing to be it’s the same person who owns Epstein. With the Bronfmans, Eptsein and Saville out of commission, don’t ya wonder who’s filling in their supply lines?

  2. Between wired and wireless connectivity issues and the wired / wireless having reciprocal problems – wireless downloads unusually slow but uploads irregularly fast – wired downloads fast with short ping time and upload with long ping time and barely third to half the subscriber speed plan, it almost seems as though quantum wires / wireless are crossed. (Perhaps entangled a closer term) Just who are the bandwidth hogs / suppressors, anyway?

    Been monitoring some anomalous activity since one’s wired pair was recently adjusted. Just over a couple of weeks ago, now. . . . Well, . . . Not one to add a flash point to any “high octane speculations” but there are some strange measurements coincidentally had, albeit, not science laboratory grade, but then considering how worthless some of those labs have become and COMMpromised, why should one care with all the purported intellectual property theft that has-been. Some of those problem players are, at least, consistent between wired and wireless platforms. If one didn’t know better one would suspect that those permutation intensive coin things for bits were at the super satellite level, too, as well as military related, especially, those seemingly geomagnetic derangements of susceptible software and vulnerable hardware – you know – quantum computer generated permutations tid-bits (vs) quantum computer reactionary permutations amongst those few who have them (private and state owned). The tricky parts are the ignorance laden operators and their guess work behind them – what will happen next or let’s see if calculations pan out to gold bits, types. One probably should not get too obsessed with any one component part as there are likely a vast multitude of currently affected systems, applications, and machines from the macro scale on a micro scale to include all support mechanisms operating – you know – Let’s see how many flowing electrons can be can be scooped up on a sweep and duplicated or whose bandwidth can be modified to see if anyone is PAYing attention. Most seemingly like a glitch or gremlin that quickly manifests then goes. One must admit, if those toys were plopped down on one’s desktop with access codes and command switching one might be tempted to wreck-havoc that that opportunity would present (but likely would not). That’s too much like trouble and the Others would not be amused.

    In any case, Fz re-arrangements are likely going to be best controlled by the ones controlling the peta flopping quantum computer guided satellites in the best global positions at any given instant. That’s going to take some quantum computed permutations to adjust for terrestrial and orbital motion / positions as such navigation of a kind is well practiced by the Others, only hinted at by upright primates. Then again this could be something of a high stakes global game played by state and privately sponsored psychopaths with trillions.

    One has several suspicions on why there’s a measurable “flip-flop” on wired / wireless, download / upload, bandwidth demanding activity as it suggests a vast interconnected web of things to come up with that level of resource intensive, uh, . well, . err, . real time stuff in this space time that is apparent. One tends to abide by, “In God We Trust, All Others Are Monitored.” And prefers to stay out of trouble and behave for the better. Like John Adams once mentioned, “never trouble, trouble;” where one added, “for you’ll only double trouble, bringing trouble threefold back to you.” Often times too terrible to risk.

  3. I suspect the Iranians did it because of the UK taking their tanker. If they didn’t do it there is only one country in the region with the tech, motive, and history of goading Iran.

  4. Interesting that Russia was the only major European state to back the USA during its Civil War. The USA should be ashamed of its attempt to divide and keep separate other states around the world for the past seventy-odd years. It’s as if the CSA, not the USA had won an took over as the real government.

  5. President Putin’s Interview with Oliver Stone:
    http://thesaker.is/president-putins-interview-with-oliver-stone/
    (Contrast Putin’s intellect and ‘delicacy’ with a local home-grown…)

    Oliver Stone: “In this continuing strategy of tension, there was a report in The New York Times last week that the Obama Administration, before they left office, put in what they call a cyber warfare device. It was inserted in Russian infrastructure in January 2017.”

    Vladimir Putin: “This is being discussed almost openly. It was said Russia would be punished for interfering in the election campaign. We do not see anything extraordinary or unexpected here. This should be followed closely. That is the first thing.

    The second is, I believe, that we only need to negotiate how we are to live in this high-tech world and develop uniform rules and means of monitoring each other’s actions. We have repeatedly proposed holding talks on this subject to come to some binding agreement.”

    Oliver Stone: “Continuing that theme of strategy of tension, how is Russia affected by the US-Iranian confrontation?”

    Vladimir Putin: :”This worries us because this is happening near our borders. This may destabilize the situation around Iran, affect some countries with which we have very close relations, causing additional refugee flows on a large scale plus substantially damage the world economy as well as the global energy sector. All this is extremely disturbing. Therefore we would welcome any improvement when it comes to relations between the US and Iran. A simple escalation of tension will not be advantageous for anyone. It seems to me that this is also the case with the US. One might think that there are only benefits here, but there will be setbacks as well. The positive and negative factors have to be calculated.”

    Oliver Stone: “Yeah. Scary.”

    Vladimir Putin: “No, this is not scary.”

    Oliver Stone: “You sound very depressed, much more depressed than last time.”

    Vladimir Putin: “Last time, the situation concerning Iran was not like this. Last time, nobody said anything about getting into our energy and other networks. Last time, the developments were more positive.”

  6. If the Russians did it, my guess is they’re the immigrant Russians running tech in a country that clearly has back doors into 90% of chips that are now in everything. It does seem that’s the one country with a motive to stir up arguments – like Gandalf hiding and keeping trolls arguing how to cook hobbits until turned to stone by morning light.

    Question: what countries on the planet seems to be above internal instability? No color revolutions. No unrest to speak of. No serious risk to leadership no matter how openly corrupt.

  7. Black woman next James Bond; Woman next Thor; and the Russians did it! – next geopolitical hot-zone, where event$ aren’t true to following an agreed-upon-fable. Instead of crying/singing, WOLF!; the press choir’s singing the Russian Bear did it!
    Its been happening so much so… that when the Wolf/Bear card is truly played – no one believes it.

    1. Always in the backdrop of the geo/exo political game afoot are the Nazi International. They have the technical savvy; the agents-in-place; the historical balls to pull off audacious operations; and the connections in the commanding heights/underworld to bring about game change[r]/[s].

  8. In my opinion, there are one of two ‘levels’ of things going-on:

    (a) The entire global system is intertwined (with or without Anunnaki-descendant control) and all these incidents are just to keep the pot at a rolling-boil without spilling over. Keeps the sheeple confused, scared, and in line. No danger of a war, unless the controllers want one…

    (b) There are indeed factions for global dominance, and one of them is pushing something akin to the Oded Yinon Plan. If you will remember, every one of a certain rogue Middle Eastern country’s foes has been either politically co-opted or subjected to an “Arab Spring” or a “Jihad” to disable them. In serious trouble or ruined. Only Iran is left. (And coincidentally, only Iran does not have a *cough* Western *cough* Central Bank.)

    Seeing that Britain was effectively taken-over by certain *cough* Western *cough* Central Bank interests a couple of centuries (or more) ago, it would be natural for them to be agitating to start a war between US and Iran – with a certain rogue Middle Eastern country as the beneficiary. The tanker ‘propaganda war’ is just part of beating the war drums toward this result. (And, the goal is not to physically-conquer Iran; just to ruin it.) It is even better if you can smear Russia as a two-for-one…

    (As far as GPS signals going-down around Putin, I would expect local GPS jammers. His security people probably don’t want GPS-enabled ‘suicide’ drones with strapped-on explosives to have a chance at him…)

    1. I don’t want anything to happen to him either. He seems to have a whole brain. Not that I’m interested at all in being more of a nanny state then we already are.

  9. For what it’s worth, my interpretation of this canard about Russia is quite positive. I think the British are doing a Trump and backing down from confrontation with Iran by deflecting attention and blame onto the Russians. Whether anybody really believes that Russia was to blame or not is immaterial. The heat has been taken out of the situation. Putin wants a higher oil price much less than he wants peace and stability. If it helps achieve that, I’m sure Putin is prepared to sit back one more time and be entertained by the British tieing themselves in knots with their theatre-of-the-absurd antics.
