Japan, you might have noticed, is much on my mind this week, thanks to some articles spotted by M.D., a regular reader of this website, and this week the articles seem to bespeak a disturbing "theme", namely, that Japan is actively engaged in the research into all sorts of exotic weapons systems, as has been for a long time.

Case in point, the rods of the gods (or in Japan's case, perhaps the Ainu). This article too was spotted by M.D. and passed it along, and it is worth your attention, because needless to say I have a bit of high octane speculation to accompany it:

There's quite a bit to ponder in this article, and it's easy to see why it caught M.D.'s eye and why it was passed along. Consider the following:

Japan’s defence ministry this week announced plans to develop railgun technology to intercept hypersonic missiles from China, North Korea or Russia. Unlike traditional guns and missiles which use chemical propellants, railguns use electromagnetism to launch projectiles.

As such, railguns can continuously fire projectiles that fly much faster than conventional ones, allowing the engagement of multiple hypersonic threats. Hypersonic missiles fly five times the speed of sound to defeat enemy missile defense systems.

Japan has allocated US$56 million for railgun technology research in its initial fiscal 2022 budget proposal. Previously, in 2016, the country allocated $8.6 million for railgun research. The aim is to develop a weapon that can fire a projectile at Mach 6, or six times the speed of sound.

In other words, nuclear power + railgun technology = viable deployable and operational missile defense system.
So far so good, so now let's crawl to the end of the speculation twig. Ever since the Tianjing chemical plant explosion I've been suspicious - as regular readers of this website know - that that incident may have been caused precisely by a "rod of God" technology that was used in offensive, and not defensive mode. My principal reason for thinking this was the sheer depth and shape of the crater, as opposed to the type of explosion we were told took place.  In short, the crater was both narrow, conical, and very deep, whereas a typical chemical explosion would leave a much more rounded, and shallow, crater. Subsequently, during another confrontation with North Korea, an American general was asked, very explicitly and pointedly by a reporter, if "kinetic weapons" - rods of the gods - were on the table in the range of responses, and the general's response was a simple "yes".   That "yes" either implies one great big bluff (and the chutzpah to make the bluff), or it implies the existence of an offensive non-nuclear technology that is in all probability space-based, and that we know nothing about.
Enter Japan, which wants to spend a mere 56 million dollars on the development of the technology. It seems like a case of "too little, too late," but I submit that in a world of rumored fusion devices - remember, Philo Farnsworthy alleged patented soft-ball sized small fusion reactors in the early 1960s, and allegedly achieved sustained fusion reactions of about half a minute with them, again in the 1960s - the reality might be very disturbing. It seems, if one considers all these possibilities, that at a minimum a power source sufficient for  satellite based anti-satellite systems based on railgun technology might already be feasible, and this, I suspect, is the sort of analysis and reasoning the Japanese program is based upon. It's not a matter of achieving results, because those results have already been achieved. Once again, it's more of a matter of sending messages, and rest assured, they're paying attention in Beijing, and Moscow...
... and Swampington.
Japan, as they all know, has a significant space-launch capability, and could deploy such a system. It is, in other words, a possible "turned-key rod-of-god" power.
The more important question is, how far has that technology been developed? Has it developed to the point of being a practical space-based offensive bombardment platform?   If my suspicions about the Tianjing chemical plant disaster are true, then the answer to that question is yes. And the only question at that point is: who... And here's a possible hint for those of you really paying attention: The Varo Edition of Morris Jessup's The Case for the UFO, and a little thing mentioned by "Carlos Allende" called "the great bombardment."
See you on the flip side...

    This report provides the very latest progress with rail guns and lasers. It seems the USA is now focusing on laser guns rather than rail guns. Reagan was correct and on target with his Star Wars ambition in the 1980s.

    As an aside….James of World News Today showed a video of Chinese drones making their way through a forest, able to avoid collision!! How to escape total surveillance???

    Ohhh… my, this reminds me of a type of technology someone has developed, they call it Drone Killer, I have no idea what is the real name of that thing, but Saudi already place order for this military toy, it is basically a Laser unit mount on top of a military vehicle that looks like a truck, the vehicle likely has it is own computation and raider monitoring system inside, the lesser unit is 360 degree, also can shot multiple target at the same time Quote: Laser pulses travel faster than light without breaking laws of physics End quote (source: newscientist).

    Electromagnetism to launch projectiles can travel around nearly five miles a second, about nine times faster than a typical rifle bullet. On the other hand, a hypersonic missile can travel Quote: US completes test of hypersonic missile that travels 5 times the speed of sound End Quote (source: timesofisrael) How is the Electromagnetism to launch projectiles can intercept the hypersonic missile? Specially the hypersonic missile of China is first travel upwards away from Earth atmosphere, and then go back down into atmosphere towards the target, using the Earth’s gradational force to increase it is speed, also the travel path isn’t straight but extremely random. The reason I mention these two separate events because I suspect Japan may not actually research in Electromagnetism to launch projectiles but something related to Electromagnetism, in a completely different way, just think of it, if Laser is far more efficient in terms of speed, why the trouble add some silly projectiles to slow down the interception speed? Specially the current tech already capable of take out Drones.

    Also according to some Ticktoker, some people in China is testing non GPS/Beidou guided drone in the bamboo forest, not just one drone, but a whole bunch of them, they can easily fly through the narrow space between the bamboos.

    I don’t understand the tech that well but believe my recent research on the technologies of SDI & the secret space program is relevant, and I’m guessing the US has had this tech for some time… A Special Access Program on hypervelocity railgun research was done in the 1980s, called CHECKMATE, or Compact High Energy Capacitor Module Advanced Technology Experiment. DOD planners expected the rail guns would be capable of rapid, multiple firings of hundreds of shots from space platforms. In 1990, the US Army collaborated with the U of TX Institute for Advanced Tech, researching rail gun interactions and electromagnetic launchers. The Center for Electromagnetics at UT designed and developed a rapid-fire rail gun launcher called the Cannon-Caliber Electromagnetic Gun. The facility became the army’s first federally funded R&D center and housed some of the army’s electromagnetic launchers. Since 1993 the British and American governments have collaborated at the Dundrennan Weapons Testing Centre that culminated in the 2010 test where BAE Systems fired a 3.2 kg (7 pound) railgun projectile at 18.4-megajoules [3,390 m/s (7,600 mph; 12,200 km/h; 11,100 ft/s).

    If accurate, this might give perspective on the Kagan and Nuland neocon/neolib game plan.
    Tactics indicate strategies indicate goals.
    As ever, Martin Armstrong brings in good sources.
    If not accurate, then how is such propaganda possible?

    too many links per post – modded again

    BTW Doc, talk of such weapons is surely being misunderestimated. All this work on hypersonic missiles, plasma and kinetic rods is surely about the peaceful side of dual use systems.

    Plasma weapons do seem much more practical.
    Did I accurately notice a lack of satellite based weapons systems in the thread?
    Satellite based rods and/or plasma weapons seem another step higher in practicality.

    This article has a good video of the railgun and how it operates.

    It states that the future of the railgun is to launch missiles to target and destroy nuclear missiles in flight in Space – as per Reagan’s Star Wars vision.
    Although having said that, Reagan also spoke about another possible existential and external threat to Planet Earth!

  13. Michael UK on May 7, 2022 at 9:24 am

    According to this analysis, hypersonic missiles are the future for the USA, not railguns launchers.

    Bizarrely, it reports that the US Navy’s decision to pause railgun research at year’s end frees up resources for hypersonic missiles, directed-energy systems (like lasers) and electronic warfare systems, said Lt. Courtney Callaghan, a Navy spokesperson. Information gleaned during testing will be retained in the event the Office of Naval Research wants to pick up where it left off in the future, she added.
    All told, the US Navy spent about $500 million on research and development, according to Bryan Clark, an analyst at the Hudson Institute.
    The technology was close to making the leap from science fiction to reality in the 21st century with the testing of prototypes. The concept held the possibility of providing an effective weapon at pennies on the dollars compared to smart bombs and missiles. That’s because railguns use electricity instead of gunpowder, or jet or rocket engines, to accelerate a projectile at six or seven times the speed of sound. That creates enough kinetic energy to destroy targets.

    Nicola Tesla tech anybody no radiation fallout possibly easier and safer to use besides solving Japan energy needs.

    And what about the explosion in Lebanon several years ago? I also considered this a RoG signature.

    Yes indeed, for those paying attention…for Dr. Farrell’s commentary on his allusion to “The great bombardment” above in this blog…Secrets of the Unified Field by Joseph P. Farrell, pgs. 69-75.

    Preemptive or covertly coordinated strikes against Japan’s power grid and/or nuclear power plants would render this weaponry useless in an instant, due to the enormous amount of electricity required. The rods of god are an auxiliary weapons system at best and should not be considered a replacement for ballistic missiles.

  18. Robert Barricklow on May 6, 2022 at 11:48 am

    I wonder how much they’re pulling off the Breakaway Shelf.
    Either the dusty shelf; or, the recent shelf.
    That’s probably some of the “new” weapons origins;
    might even step-up the drip line,
    for special vassal states.

    Japan has its own version of Breakaway tech.
    Fusion is right up their island energy needs.

  19. JamesFee on May 6, 2022 at 10:03 am

    I also believe that since the Fukushima “accident” they are looking to revitalize their nuclear program without outside “assistance”. This line of research would provide multiple benefits being strategically defensive in nature.

  20. anakephalaiosis on May 6, 2022 at 9:29 am

    Such a hole-in-the-ground cannon would allow gophers to play golf. A cyclotron slingshot, with ballistics of a meteorite, that could escape earth’s gravity, or not, would be a perfect pirate gun, with a sound imprint of dog whistle.


    Jack Sparrow knows his game of curse,
    whilst casting a spell in reverse,
    because theatrics will fly
    in a do or die,
    when cracking the code of universe.

    Rod of God as kinetic penetrator? Quite possible,yes. Let’s talk for a bit about a little different approach. It is quite feasible to continuously disintegrate with electricity phisical object to plasma- let’s say 1kg of Wolfram based cermetal, to accelerate it to 1000km/s one would need a power source of approx. 140MW. That plasma projectile would have kinetic energy of a little bit over equivalent to 3kT of TNT. Also plasma is more “handy” to accelerate in electromagnetic guns then solid projectile.
