ATTACK ON THE KERCH BRIDGE BY RODS OF GOD?
All my weekend company is gone, and I have to say it was nice (and a bit of a relief) to see Catherine Fitts again and to record her third quarter Solari wrap up. It was a relief because... well, there are just some people one looks to for a kind of reassurance of stability, and that no matter how screwy the leadership is, some things, and some people, are just irrelevant. To quote Ms. Fitts from last Sunday's recording session, "Biden is just irrelevant." Bottomless corruption and stupidity will do that, even to (alleged) presidents. What's not irrelevant, however, is that attack on the bridge built across the Kerch straits, connecting the Crimea to mainland Russia.
We all know the narrative by now: allegedly a Syrian driver with connections to some fundamentalist Islamic group drove a fertilizer bomb onto the bridge, with the Ukrainian intelligence services allegedly cheering him on, and blew up the bomb, just as a freight train carrying diesel fuel was passing on the railroad span, and knocking two sections of two lanes into the water, leaving two lanes (or in some versions, one lane) of the road bridge traversable. Later the railroad span was reopened. Adding to the mystery of the whole affair, the Ukrainian government supposedly released postage stamps depicting the event within a few hours of the attack, making it appear rather obvious that it had something to do with planning the attack. And with Syrians with Islamicist connections allegedly involved, one might as well connect the dots all the way to the US intelligence community, and the McCain faction thereof. Oh, and by the way, the bomb was allegedly an ANFO (or ammonia nitrate fuel oil) bomb, but just in case you're getting confused about which bombing we're talking about, this driver was not arrested after the incident for speeding down the roadway in a car with no license tags, and his name is not Thomas McVeigh, and no, I continue to have difficulty believing that an ANFO bomb can bring down cantilevered buildings with concrete columns reinforced by rebar, just as I have similar difficulties that such a bomb might have collapsed the two sections of the Kerch bridge. Unlike Oklahoma City and its bomb, the amount of "sootification" that resulted from the explosion, particularly on the passing freight train, appears commensurate with what an ANFO bomb would leave.
It's probably speculations and musings like that that are leading some in the alternative media to question the ANFO bomb narrative already, according to this article shared by K.M. and M.B.:
The first thing to note is that the story of the truck bomb appears to have originated with the American propatainment media:
Over the weekend, the Washington Post and Forbes pumped out gross misinformation that a truck bomb blew up the bridge section, à la the false flag attacks that occurred under the World Trade Center in 1993 and outside the Murrah building in the 1995 Oklahoma City Bombing. But, operationally, the forensic evidence shows that was not the case with the $3.6 billion, 12-mile-long Kerch Strait Bridge. Constructed from 2015 to 2018, connecting annexed Crimea with mainland Russia, the dual-purpose bridge, designed with the latest high-tech surveillance and security measures, appeared invincible from a typical lone wolf or terrorist attack.
Well, the problem with this is that there does appear to be a video of a truck blowing up, and I have no difficulty believing that, but let me explain why: if you're at all familiar with the Oklahoma City bombing, the truck bomb that allegedly accomplished the destruction of the building simply could not have done so, since there was a fractured column in the second row of columns behind the front row of columns that also collapsed. Such a thing simply could not have happened because the physics doesn't support it. The brissance of the explosion would have fallen off far too quickly, and been incapable of fracturing that column.
In short, the OKC ANFO bomb was a diversion from the demolition charges inside the building. Is this beginning to sound a bit familiar and 9/11-ish?
So what did bring the Kerch Bridge roadway sections down? and who's responsible? I don't think the Russians would do it, for the simple reason that I also don't think that they would blow up their own pipeline. Besides, they didn't have to blow up their own pipelines; they could have simply turned them off. They might be capable of a false flag operation blowing up their own bridge, provided (1) they leave the bridge in a repairable condition (which it appears to be) and (2) provided they leave enough of it function to provide some minimum of traffic and supply back and forth between the mainland and the peninsula (which also appears to have occurred). But what the Russians probably could not do was coordinate all of that with the issuance of Ukrainian postage stamps hours later depicting and commemorating the event.
Which still leaves us with the "whodunnit" question. Given the modum explosionis of Oklahoma City and even the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, not to mention 9/11 itself, it seems reasonable to conclude that one is looking at an obvious signature of the globalist factions of western intelligence. The explosion was designed to mask the use of the real method that brought the spans down.
Enter the "rod of God" as the modum explosionis:
Other online researchers suggested the blast was a result of a boat bomb. That, too, serves as a red herring, a misleading explanation. Two different bridge spans—railway and highway—built at two different elevations, separated by some 80 feet apart, were not hit by a bomb from either a single vehicle or watercraft. For the latter, none of the concrete bridge piers on either viaduct suffered damage.
These facts rule out both a truck bomb and a boat bomb; as such, they also eliminate the Ukraine Special Forces Service from being involved in the bridge strike.
So, what armaments exploded on the two parallel spans?
If neither the sea nor the land caused the blasts, then only an attack from the air can explain what took place.
As seen in the image below, the photograph taken after the attack discount the truck or boat bomb theories—especially when the aerial photo shows the hallmark of a few surgical strikes from the air. The blasts were so precise and well-timed that they blew up a chemical train in two different places on the railway span, with another strike on the highway bridge below.
Or to put this argument a bit differently perhaps, it is the fact that the middle roadway span did not collapse, nor appears to have sustained any collateral damage similar to that seen on the railroad span, which was also damaged along with the collapsed roadway, that is the mystery.
The article then links a video from someone describing himself or herself as Nikola 3 @ ronin19217435 which appears to show a "something" hitting the bridge from the sky. A "rod of God":
For decades, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) needed a non-explosive device to get around strict conventions and rules of engagement set forth by international law on space-based weapons. That is especially true when firing on a civilian target, such as the Kerch Strait Bridge. No military wants to be brought before a tribunal for war crimes.
In the 1990s, the U.S. DoD launched a black budget program called “Project Thor” to install such a weapon in space. The United States developed the “kinetic bombardment” system without carrying any explosive payload. The “Rods of God,” as the Thor system is mythically referred to, fires tungsten steel “telephone poles” at hypersonic speeds from orbit. With the great distance from space plus the mass and density of the rods shot at super-high velocity, the friction of the air ignites the “tungsten thunderbolt” into a fiery projectile upon reaching the earth.
Evidence indicates—especially from the leaked Russian infrared video—that the same Thor weapon system struck the Kerch Bridge at least three times. Once on the lower highway span, while the other two bolts hit the railway viaduct above.
The Thor tungsten projectiles can be fired down to earth either from a hypersonic aircraft or from a revolver-type firing space system. Military GPS and computer guidance system do the rest all the way down to its target.
Now some might be arguing that coordinating a truck with a disaffected Islamicist terrorist along with the timing of a "rod of God" attack and a commemorative Ukrainian postage stamp might just be too much to get to work altogether so precisely.
Maybe, but I beg to differ. All the "rod of God" operator has to do is to watch the live-satellite imagery as the truck drives onto the bridge, and fire the weapon accordingly. The postage stamps are already printed.
So if the video is true, then, yes, someone appears to have attacked the Kerch strait bridge with such a weapon. Certainly the USA has them, as the article indicates. Doubtless Russia does as well, and anyone else who can throw a satellite up there into orbit (China, Japan, Germany, France, India...the usual list of suspects, not to mention now, corporations and "other non-state actors"). I'm reminded of the comment of the American general just a few years ago during the Trump administration, when "all options" for dealing with North Korea's latest provocation were "on the table," and a reporter loudly asked the general, "Does this include kinetic weapons?" which elicited a simple and very direct military "Yes" from the general.
Here's the very bad news, folks. If the speculation in the article is true, then we've just seen the first more-or-less confirmed use of a kinetic space-based weapon during war, and a very small version of the weapon to boot, firing a very small "rod" at very slow speed. Remember, force equals mass times acceleration. These weapons can be made much larger and much faster, and capable of causing much much more damage than simply taking down a bridge. The damage they could conceivably cause is on the order of nuclear weapons, without the nasty fallout from using them. We are perhaps looking at a weapon with a kind of "dial-an-effect", capable of firing various masses of "rods" at various velocities to achieve various specific tactical (small scale) or operational (larger scale), or even strategic (mass destruction) effects.
And this, perhaps, explains why Mr. Putin is upping the nuclear rhetoric, for remember, during the Cold War, the Soviet Union launched and deployed a number of anti-satellite satellites... which used kinetic impacter weapons that take out opposing satellites. There's no telling what other capabilities they may have had, because Russia still isn't talking.
And let's also not forget, in this context, that NASA recently successfully concluded its DART experiment, launching a kinetic impacter on an asteroid, and thus demonstrating, for those paying attention to the implications, an interplanetary bombardment capability....
See you on the flip side...

Now if that video of the missile is in fact real. If you slow it down a ton. You would see a proximity fuse detonate slightly above the bridge before the main explosive initiates. If I were to wager a guess.. maybe a fuel-air burst. Or a more simple explanation would be Occams Razor. It’s a truck bomb. So here’s a connection nobody will bring up here. All those russian tank videos if you look closely at them. You’ll notice all of their reactive armor has been either opened or removed. That’s a lot of C4 or equivalent. I’d bet it’s probably what was in the truck.
While usually I’m in agreement with your speculation. However using a kinetic rod, especially a tungsten one even at very slow speed is going to penetrate through the bridge and you will invariably see a cone of dispersion when the object hits the water. You don’t really see any of that. It’s mainly focused on the top of the bridge. So if it is a kinetic rod it would be made of something that’s frangible. It delivers the kinetic energy on the surface and dustifies on impact.
There is a video out that shows the bridge being hit from another angle. It was hit with two missiles one right after the other. This could only have been either US or UK or the globalist who has that technology and we know that these globalist seem to have their own separate forms of warfare outside the normal western channels.
Thank you very much Joseph for this information.
Have you seen an article by Grayzone about the British involvement in this act of war ?
This article is circulating in France at the moment :
EXPOSED: Before Ukraine blew up Kerch Bridge, British spies plotted it
Kit Klarenberg·October 10, 2022
Perhaps the secretive US Space Force’s X-37B Space Plane is linked to Project Thor?
There’s that speculative potential – rod of god. And then there’s the practical angle of where’s-the-data – the real-world data – of the region that is already highly scrutinized from various reconnaissance positions on a regular basis by the actors in the area that are engaged in the battles? Missile masses generate heat as they navigate the atmosphere for sensitive equipment to say little about any inclusive friction from high altitudes or propellants used to negotiate the winds. That intelligence could be revealing alone.
[Corporations and “other non-state actors”] These folks are engaged in the area with satellite assistance, but do not yield much more telltale involvement other than connectivity via satellite & networking. Connectivity is an important consideration of C3 (Command, control, & communications) without robust informed speculation given the direction the presumptive explosive-ridden-truck was traveling. One report suggested from the Russian side to The Ukrainian side, as if a supply run. Footage shows what looks to be scantily driven bridges as if by permission at bridge egresses of each side. These are supposedly occupied regions with an intent of keeping them functional. Apparently, they’re just as vulnerable as the pipeline in the North Sea with more open spaces surrounding its operation. This condition of perimeter control, one would suggest, is faulty all around that conflict area and possibly lacking resources & troop placements. Almost to say an overreach by tacticians to invade, seize, and hold territory.
In those eastern European land, air, and sea positions the scenes of command, control, and conquest for expansion, each requires materials, refined resources (weapons), and personnel to respond & move in a quick-action timing. Once occupied, that arduous means of holding what has been taken is an unreliable bed fellow.
One question goes begging, “Will the Party of the east by going west seize the moment and step in to support presumptive allies?” Separatists and Russians in this case, as they did for another on an eastern peninsula in the 1950’s?”
It would seem that President Putin, being something of a psychologist, has calculated differently than what the outcome has thus far become. One would look toward his motions and opportunities at taking advantage of a disaster. Not unlike a certain continental member further east of the bridge in question.
If one has ever played Darts you’ll recall that these little projectiles can be very customized to the dart thrower needing only some playing space and practice at launching, . . err, . . . throwing. Of course, it might depend on the clientele at the pub on how one gets motivated.
Just how effective are short range or long-range missiles in the region, anyway? You know, the type that would be very useful in a hit-and-run tactic of opportunity. It would seem that not everyone is ‘making-nice & picking-out-furniture’ on those Black Sea shorelines.
Darts are fun! Lobbing missiles is another matter whether at asteroids as a result of Chelyabinsk event or intended target of potential impactor event(s). Are there anymore October surprises to be witnessed and what do they mean? What robust weaponry will come to explosive light?
Hi All, This is not the first time a Rod of God has been used. There is an awfully interesting hole in a Chinese chemical plant a few years ago.
This raises some points though. If someone is torching Russia’s infrastructure, Pipelines, bridge and who knows what other installations, and assaisnations, one attempt on Putin and that young lady, why is there no retaliation? One reason may be that the origin of the attacks are from a non-state actor. If it were the Yanks, (pick any baddie here) then we could expect some fireworks on US soil.
If it’s a non-state actor where do you hit? I don’t think the Russians are turning the other cheek. I’m waiting for a big right hook.
Interesting that the Ukraine War is heating up when a new space race is just beginning. Does anyone remember how the Indochina War destroyed the space program in the end not directly but by siphoning money from NASA but then that agency has been a dog and pony show, to begin with especially after JFK’s murder.
The “rods from god” weapons system appears to be designed for underground, not surface targets, and for the rods to impact the earth over an area, not a precise surface target such as a bridge or a factory. A launch vehicle instead of a satellite is probably used for weapons delivery which would allow greater flexibility in targeting. The idea being if a country had a facility about the size of a city block and about a mile underground, a cluster of rods could be dropped from the edge of space (about 60 miles up), and using computer calculations and geo-engineering of the air column above the target, the 6-8 telephone-pole sized rods would be expected to impact over an area the size of the city limits for that city block target. The resulting shock waves of those 6-8 scattered impacts would travel through the earth and not only collapse the underground facility but also collapse the access tunnels to that facility. The rods themselves would disintegrate as they travel hundreds of feet into the earth making reconstruction of the event difficult. Rod target examples would include Cheyenne Mountain in Colorado, Natanz Nuclear Facility in Iran. or any country’s underground presidential bunker. A hypothetical mission could be the launch vehicle departs a USAF base in England heading east, achieves a height of 60 miles somewhere over the Ural Mountains, drops the rods at a predetermined launch point at a target in east Asia, and then the vehicle lands at a USAF base in Alaska or Hawaii. In 2017, an earthquake severely damaged North Korean’s underground nuclear test facilities.
There may be the made-to-order type that come in a variety of sizes, capacities for impact, and launching platforms.
No. The person writing that article is being fanciful.
I have seen the full videos the Russians put out. It very much is an explosion from moving truck.
1) The railway span was NOT damaged. It did not collapse. It did not suffer structural damage. The train caught fire and the only damage to the span is from the fire. The train caught fire because it was pulling tankers filled with, explosive hydrocarbons.
2) The roadway span collapses a few minutes afters the explosion. It does not collapse during the video.
3) There is no water splash, etc. that you would expect from a projectile falling from space and hitting 2 feet or less of reinforced concrete. It would puncture through the concrete and go straight into the water. If the railroad span where vertical, you could drive through it with a normal car going 60mph, much less a solid projectile falling from space at super sonic speeds.

It’s what happens when you don’t proof read what you write. My apologies.
Not being a master of literary art form oneself, where grammar and spelling meet to form sentences, typos occur.
Speaking of proof reading, one has to do plenty to be somewhat convinced that this keyboard in use isn’t typing on its own to make a mockery of this member. In one’s humble opinion, that article could use some proof reading also to account for and correct words of omission.
One thought possibly a “hit-n-run” tactic using missile or immediate communication range of detonator of preset explosives and a known target of opportunity probably watched from afar many times. Reconnaissance in the region has been intense from several angles.
interesting hypothesis. as interesting is the way (mis) information originates and propagates throughout the social sphere.
where can be found the IMAGE below, referenced in the article?
“As seen in the image below, the photograph taken after the attack discount the truck or boat bomb theories—especially when the aerial photo shows the hallmark of a few surgical strikes from the air. The blasts were so precise and well-timed that they blew up a chemical train in two different places on the railway span, with another strike on the highway bridge below.”
It seems structural & service vulnerabilities are enormous no matter what continent one chooses. Be they constructed, chemical, communications, or the simpler casual type to sow fear & despair among the victims directly associated. Part of the psychiatrics that are currently involved from one somewhat skilled in psychiatry of warfare one could imply.
A surgical strike that impairs but did not fully destroy seems well calculated by one who might know well of the bridge construction and its vulnerabilities. Were they secrets that were leaked or possibly intelligently guessed? If so, How and by whom? Impeccable timing. Almost as if much more is compromised than first hypothesized. Begging the questions again, “Who and what are compromised? And, by how much and by whom?” Such an ephemeral position would seem the most ideal placement of superiority than just the high road above a battlefield. Reminds me of the board game “RISK.” Only to include the fighting places below sea level as well as atop it and of air to include space. Sort of an expansion of infantry, cavalry, and artillery from previous battles and battlefields of history; now to include sea surface / subsurface, aircraft, space, and [very] accurate reconnaissance & intelligence of the real-world-real-time variety..
“Unrestricted Warfare,” by the Colonels Qiao Liang and Wang Xiangsui, it seems, is very much at play here. And might involve non-state players with a lot of resources at their command, control, and communications reach via artificial intelligence by way of sophisticated computing hardware and programming. Their commander only needs to be right once while the rest would-be-commanders place their best intelligent guesses as best as they can on actionable intelligence to prevent or catch in the act would be saboteurs. These modern day saboteurs are no-longer using [sabots] to up end an employer on the western European coastline as a century or two ago.
Might be ‘rods of god’ (I hesitate to capitalize ‘God’ here), but I’ve seen other narratives equally plausible . Some (Russian investigators) say the truck was originally loaded in Bulgaria, then made a circuitous route through various countries, even entering and leaving Russia at one point, with different drivers along the way. Train carrying gasoline was held up electronically until the exact moment when the truck passed. The operators’ timing was a little bit off, resulting in a botched job that left much of the bridge intact, but not the luckless truck driver. At any rate, if it was meant to be a western warning about kinetic weaponry, it seems to have fallen on deaf ears in Russia. I dunno.
This is an interesting take on an important event. If the garbage media is saying it was a routine truck bomb (suicide attack?), then that’s cause right there to be looking for a different explanation.
Question: would incoming rod(s) of god weapons be seen on radar, or other detection methods?
Usually, when commenting here; I like to preface the frame from which I view the article.
Herein, from the title; I’m trying to ferret it whose has control of: not the nuclear football; but the “Acts of God”, the ancient weapons from the heavens. What an excellent cover; for those wielding ungodly power w/ungodly morals, for ungodly purposes.
Exactly! : ” ‘Biden is just irrelevant.’ “. The empty suited puppet on so manipulated; he doesn’t know his right hand from his left hand[speaking of which my computer is putting up unauthorized adds and my Chinese keyboard is typing letters I’m not striking]. So, relunctantly I can identify somewhat: strange times. Strange puppet masters. Strange area of the universe; we’re all traveling through. A Twilight Zone; whose sign post reads strange – in your rear view mirror. Suffice to say; even corruption is acting strange; as it seems to know no bounds, or borders, or common sense, or what it is doing; except to take, take, take. Even the corrupt are complaining; as their thieves, are stealing from them!
What the “war” in “The Ukraine” looks to be about; is a testing ground for advanced warfare weapons, techniques, strategies, and ‘Acts of God”. Primarily, it would appear to be two-sided; but we all know that’s just the surface waters. Below is a whole other game afoot. Above is what I’m trying to focus on: Who are those Gods?
By that I’m referring to those wielding hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, rods of god, tornado fires[Paradise CA., Australia, for example] insect carrying drone, insect geoengineering flying syringes, and God knows what other chimeras?
“They” must have something akin to an extremely thick telemarking reply sales-pitch book; which requires a forklift to move and a weight lifter to turn the pages. Because; their scripts for covering up what’s really going on on – have way too many clowns driving that Volkswagen script, you just have to scratch your head. Pristine passbooks on top of smoldering ruins?
[At: In short…]
In short: a diversion.
Which is a suit, often played in spades.
In this case: it’s lookie down here!; when in fact – the actual bogie is a 180 degrees away,
at your12:00 o’clock high position[from space].
Is the who done it; that answers the, who is using the Act of God’s tech?
Are they one in the same?
Or, do certain parties have access to the Act of God’s tech; as long as they tick off all the correct boxes?[which includes the rod of God]
Or, do many players have this technology[rods of god?}?
As is typical in these – For Your Eyes Only black ops – there are many red-herrings being placed, at different levels; all w/supporting narratives. Just think Roswell, 1947.
Same Bat Channel; same bat dynamics; same multi-layered stacked operations.
Bottom line: what is the pot they’re playing for?
Does this pot benefit any where near more than 1% of the globe’s population. Or, anywhere near 1% of a country’s population. Or, anywhere near 1% of an oligarchy’s population?
Or, is everybody paying 100% of the downside?
Is anybody getting in the game to win?
Or, is it all about revenge?
Or, is it all about which economic system rules?
The 1%, at the 99%’ers expense.
Or, a system that works for a 100%; at the expense, of the less than 1%?
That 100% system, will not be televised.
The USA troll was in bad mood,
throwing rocks in wood,
and by water skiing
it stirred up neighborhood.
BTW, according to Elohim-Yahweh, ancient Israelites played heaven balls, and feasted year woe. That’s sort of heathen…
Abram & Co heeded highest call,
while playing heaven balls,
and hailing year woe
in wine flow,
was drinking sport above all.
Mr. GLOBALLONEY is trying hard to force RU to show their cards. For now retaliation is only conventional. Mainly to teach UKR gov/military not to be a complete shills for US MIC.
On the other hand Russians eventually will have to respond accordingly, if not everybody will start to suspect them that thay playing Regan’s star wars game.
I guess, it’s probably more of a Jim Henson’s puppeteering game. What fraggle is inside the matryoshka?
Honestly, playing openly with kinetic weapons was to be expected. Wondering, when the European poodles worm their way with boots on the ground in the Ukriane thru NATO as peacekeepers or whatever! The sad thing is, I can’t share this article without risking to alienate the few acquaintances I still have. That is what I find the hard part, going it all alone because most people rather go for the fairy tales because it is so much easier! Might be that “genocide” thingie could be uplifted to a next level!
Bizanutra, I’m kind of sad and simultaneously relieved to hear your statement about alienating acquaintances. I think people tend to think it’s only their situation, but I don’t think it is. It would be an interesting survey to do among those who follow alt media to determine the status of their friendships these days. I’m fortunate to have 3 people I can discuss almost anything with. Everyone else has been reduced to the weather, work, pets, vacations, grandchildren or what Tucker Carlson had to say last night.
I remember when we were kids during winter we’d build snow forts and make snowballs until we had enough for a snowball war … that is, until one of the boys decided to put rocks in his snowballs … I think he’s working on weapons systems now … crazy-a** competitiveness with no common sense, semblance of responsibility or decency whatsoever. I always thought “Rods of God” was some kind of laser beam or something, I didn’t realize they were essentially huge tungsten bullets that burst into flames – that kind of thing only comes out of the minds of the insane. I wonder if they’ve figured out how to set the atmosphere on fire yet?
I think many more “feel” alone due to the few self-thinkers being too wide spread. I do believe however, all of them form a bond spiritually. I consider that the tiny bit of “belief” that Joseph sometimes mentions.
I had the same problem.
Used to try to get them to understand.
Found, it wasn’t worth the energy.
Now, I simply plant the seed, and move on.
When the time is right; a little ray of sunshine here, & there. Viola!
That seed planted long ago…, takes root.
Better late, than never.
Amen to that.
