This is another article that was spotted by E.G., and I have to comment on it, because to my mind it is full of "high octane speculative implications". But first, the article:

Watch: US Drops Experimental 'Parachuted' Missile In Arctic As Warning To Russia

The USSA, according to the article, has been testing a new delivery method for its cruise missiles, literally dropping them from cargo aircraft in crates, and which then in turn drop the cruise missiles on parachutes until the missiles launch themselves at a target:

A US special forces unit has stepped up its operations inside the Arctic Circle in Norway while admitting it is trying to get Russia's attention by testing an experimental new weapons delivery system there.

"It puts this thing within range of Russia," Special Operations Command Europe’s Lt. Col. Lawrence Melnicoff was quoted as saying of the new parachute dropped long-range missile which was tested. "We are intentionally trying to be provocative without being escalatory."

Artistic rendering of "Rapid Dragon" deployment system.

"We’re trying to deter Russian aggression, expansionist behavior, by showing enhanced capabilities of the allies," he added in the comments given to military magazine Stripes.

The experimental weapon system and program is called Rapid Dragon, and on Wednesday it was successfully test-fired at Norway’s Andoya Space Range, which is the country's premiere far-northern weapons testing site.

The article goes on to imply that this rather bizarre delivery system was contrived as a means of "survivability": if the Russians take out conventional military bases or aircraft delivery systems, there is still a system that can be utilized in any standard cargo plane.

The logic makes sense...

... but only up to a point. And it's that point that's making me wonder.  Nuclear and thermonuclear bombs have been being delivered by parachute drops for a long time. For example, Russia's massive 50 megaton plus "Tsar Bomba" was dropped by parachute from a bomber when it was tested, for the simple reason of allowing the crew of the bomber time enough to fly out of lethal range of the blast and fireball of the enormous weapon.  This conjures the possibility that the missiles being dropped have such enormous yields that a parachute is necessary to allow the aircraft time to escape.

But I very much doubt that's the reason.

The other reason is what makes me think that there are more messages going on here than meets the eye, and the message comes not in the text of the article, but in the accompany "artistic rendering of 'rapid dragon' deployment system", showing the crates of missiles floating on parachutes, with the missiles pointing straight down and, in a couple of cases, the actual launch of said missiles.  This "artist's rendition" reminded me of similar "renditions" of the USSA's "Project Thor" Rods of God kinetic impact weapons system:

Orbital Planetary Attack - Atomic Rockets

And this strong resemblance makes me wonder if the "Rapid Dragon" system is but a simple "poor man's version" of a kinetic weapons system, or if, alternately, the USSA is sending a subtle message to Russia that an actual satellite based strategic kinetic weapons system was already deployed. My bet is on the latter, because you'll recall that strange remark of an American general during the Trump Administration, in response to a North Korean provocation. The USSA was keeping all options on the table. When a reporter asked - loudly - if those options included kinetic weapons, without much hesitation the general answered "yes."  And one must also remember Trump's own words that the USSA had other weapons besides nuclear that it could use.

I suspect we're looking at them.

And yes, the Russians have them too, because in fact, during the Cold War, they deployed "killer satellites" using anti-satellite kinetic weapons.  All it takes is a considerable scaling up of those kinetic impacters, and one has a strategic weapon of incredible destructive force, with no radioactive fallout.  Additionally, such weapons would be precision weapons, the very sort of thing one would use to take out Don Corleone's Vegas Hideout, while leaving Vegas itself largely unscathed.  It's the perfect weapon, in other words, for decapitation strikes, or for getting rid of pesky Chinese chemical plants in Tianjin.

And in case you haven't noticed, Russia still has large and powerful functional booster rockets capable, perhaps, of putting such systems in orbit.

to put it as succinctly as possible, I think we're watching quiet announcements of the end of the nuclear bomb as the principal (and unusuable) weapon of strategic offense. We're watching the announcement of a new era of similarly destructive, but usable, weapons.

See you on the flip side...

    So this new fandangled weapons platform (which seems to have been designed by Wiley E. Coyote) is delivered on a slow flying Cargo plane such as the C5. Russia has air defence and stand off weapons-which are the best in the world would take out that cargo plane long before it got anywhere near Russia in order to drop their Cargo via parachute.

    I doubt that concept would work unless we were deeply in a post nuclear exchange scenario so perhaps as Dr. Farrell says this is test of a type of a proof of concept system.

    This display seems analogous to the fairy tale that Christopher Columbus “discovered” America. To explain: Columbus’s voyage was more a voyage of revelation of the existence of the Americas to the general public than one of discovery. Similarly, this could be a thinly veiled revelation of a “new” rods-of-God technology that has already been used several times to carry out precision strikes on things like pesky chemical plants in various parts of the world.

    Another elaborate means of launching a mobile missile. By parachute. “Tsar Bomba,” tweaked for cargo carriers. Now to be added to the container ship launchers (Club K’s), N Korea’s boasted about railcar launchers, submarine variants, warships, bombers, were there any left out, . . . truck & self-propelled vehicles. Just another explosive punch packing suppository of destruction – Probably, with a pick-your-warhead line of specialized ordnance. There’s also a lot of logistics attached to it.

    If you’re one of the [Others] observing from a lofty position, able to flip-off the arming sequence from a distance, a failure would likely lead to a not-so-harsh landing in Red Square.

    Parachuting Rovers onto Mars was demonstrated not too long ago with significant accuracy, especially, nearby to those unusual nuclear explosion sites – one for Opportunity Rover and one for Curiosity Rover. You know, just to check out the prevailing winds of Cydonia Mensa and Galaxias Chaos, west of Olympus Mons, and that nasty gouge that leads right to Olympus Mons and the other three mon’s, to take samples and check out the other scar marks and subsurface magnetometry readings that show up nicely with special sensing filters.

    Now, with rod-of-god stuff, one doesn’t need to be concerned to much about fallout unless you’re one of the other sovereign misfits who insist on hegemony by Bomba. Over whelming numbers flown in via jet or shipped or trekking across borders would be a stretch but then there is that infiltration method to make docile by chemicals those to be conquered without munitions fired.

    In any case, terrestrials aren’t the only ones watching something of a misuse of materials, technology, and of a species-oriented intellect.

    By the way, which is the CSA under cover of USA natural enemies I doubt either Russia or China would be on that list, to begin with. Who is the CSA doing the dirty work for and profiting from this militarism?

    Does it make any difference that these “tests” or whatever are happening near EISCAT?
    Not to imply that ionosphere heaters have anything to do with anything……

    “similarly destructive” weapons???


    Nothing is as destructive as a 5 megaton bomb except another

    Kill the village to save it… mentality.
    Cognitive dissonance, as the epitome of thought.

    Could the X-37B Space Plane be used to help steer the parachutes over the desired target for the kinetic weapon to be dropped. I can’t imagine the missiles or cargo planes flying to the location, as they would be easy targets and sitting ducks for anti missile and anti aircraft systems.

    Could this also be a message to someone at the opposite Pole, in Antarctica?

      I think that too…

    This sort of thing reminds me of 1984 where the regime would always be announcing some sort of new superweapon, the existence of which is somewhat dubious. Nuclear weapons already have the power to end humanity yet the party was coming up with new weapons all the time to put new fears into the populace.

    The Khazarian Jewishnessness on the Norwegian throne is a lickspittle servitude to greater Satan, who is subordinate to lesser Satan, paying homage to Pope Satan, endorsing emperor Zelensky of Khazaria, the Antichrist.

    I am notoriously public, about resenting Norway, Norwegians and everything Norwegian, and occasionally I get a hostile response from local natives, questioning why I occupy Norway, and I simply respond: precisely therefore!

    It is difficult for ordinary little backwater brains to fathom, that one man has stalwartly crossed oceans to take revenge, like a guided missile with a single goal. That is the beauty of revenge.

    I am on a holy mission, in the department of noodle goblets, when it comes to wiping out Nineveh – inspired by the Holy Writ.
