.VT Nuclear Education: The Beirut Coverup and Jewish Lightning -By Gordon Duff
Only one thing can make ammonium nitrate explode…that’s ‘Jewish lightning’…(from an infamous anti-Semite)
“This means that teams mixed the oil into one ton bags of fertilizer and then set fuses to fireworks placed among the bags, all as kind of a joke, people with too much time on their hands, bored with the heat of Beirut in summer.”
A very strange thing has happened. The media, led by Google, Facebook and CNN is standing against reports from the Pentagon as confirmed by President Trump, that Beirut was attacked.
VT is not in the business of providing neatly wrapped narratives to explain events. VT is also not going to expose its sources, particularly those still in Lebanon who face assassination.
We can prove what did not happen. What can be stated is this, and adequate proofs are supplied, that up to 100,000 tons of TNT or 200,000 tons of enhanced ANFO explosive could not produce a crater more than 50 feet across, not over 500 feet.
The largest crater ever crated, this in largely soft soil is 330 feet across and 70 feet deep, requiring a small portion of the explosive power seen in Beirut.
Nearly 1000 tons of TNT was used, buried in 100 foot deep shafts with an explosive power of many thousands of tons of ANFO. No “informal” mixture of fertilizer and small adjacent amounts of kerosene could approach 10 percent of this blast, and yet the Beirut crater is not only 5 times larger but it is in solid rock…
AND FROM A SURFACE BLAST OF SUPPOSED VERY LOW LEVEL EXPLOSIVE
This is inexorable and, thus, real explanations using real science need to be looked at which, according to the DOE means not only nuclear weapons only but of significant size and very very likely prepositioned well under ground.
This is the science. Then we begin to wonder where so many fake experts come from. Instead, the media, and we mean all of it, is engaged in wild conspiracy theories, things no blogger would touch…
VT can now prove that videos of a missile attack on Beirut were made through childishly altering real missile videos. These videos were sent to the media “experts” with their altered frames as the coverup of Beirut took hold.
From the US Department of Energy, a table describing the Beirut event of 2020 as somewhat larger than 4.3 kilotons not unlike the Palanquin explosion, which was detonated 280 feet below the survade in layered trachytic volcanic rock.
Based on this, the original estimate of 21 foot depth would have required a surface blast of 6kt but we are now looking at something significantly greater unless, somehow, a device was embedded well below the surface.
Based on DOE figures and Palanquin data, no imaginable amount, not even 100,000 tons of TNT, could create such a crater from a surface blast.
Before anyone can begin to understand the proliferation threat micronukes represent, this primer published by the Russian Academy of Science can begin the process of opened eyes. A VT video erased from hard drives and subject to a National Security Letter is featured as a “video of a video.”
We will look at the coverup and, right off the bat, say that Israel, Saudi Arabia (who controls Beirut) and Hezbollah are all working together for a variety of reasons.
Lying About Nuclear Capabilities
What stands is this, Israel has shown it can use a subcritical nuclear weapon whenever it pleases and then use their Saudi friends in Beirut to stifle an investigation. This is a message to Hezbollah that if Israeli is attack by the estimated 100,000 missiles now aimed at it, it will respond with nuclear weapons.
Subcritical nuclear weapons do not use radioactive reflectors and burn their plutonium core entirely, thus eliminating all gamma radiation. This is commonly known, and VT has supplied documentation below.
Thus, when fake investigators hit the scene 8 days later with aging geiger counters looking for the Hiroshima bomb, they came up empty, and in the process played their role in settling Lebanon’s internal problems using an Israeli nuclear weapon.
Similarly, nuclear weapons in the “micro” range don’t need to make mushroom clouds and if they are “salted,” and most are, work like fireworks, smoke of any color or any other desired characteristic including suppressed EMP or amplified EMP.
Keeping the public 50 years in the past, even when dangerous innovations are published “open source” takes advantage of public laziness and dependence on disinformation pundits and “tame” experts.
It was “W’s” use of fake nuclear expert David Albright that sent US troops into Iraq in 2003, Albright a man who couldn’t find a nuke if it was sticking up his ass, according to real expert, Clinton Bastin of VT.
Little Clean Nukes
Some decades ago, it became possible to make nuclear weapons that fit in a lunch box. The chart explains what these early small nukes were capable of, this was the past mind you, today things have progressed considerably:
Then, a short time ago, OK half a century ago, major scientific advances were made that allowed nuclear weapons to fit inside, for instance, a typical 35mm SLR camera.
By the end of the 1970s, an exploding camera could yield 2000 tons of TNT or up to 4000 tons of aluminum boosted ANFO explosive. The only way to match a nuke is by using nanothermite, made from 6 micron powdered aluminum as a booster to advanced chemical explosives such as DIME, which Israel has used extensively in Gaza because of the ability to limit collateral damage.
Fake Videos of Real “Fake Videos”
The image above showing two missiles descending on Beirut is proof that a doctored video was made. The image came from a full HD video placed on YouTube to replace other videos taken town as fake. They were considered fakes because they showed a missile coming in, causing the real Beirut explosion.
This one which shows a missile is considered by YouTube as not fake. Why? That answer is simple, because it can be proven easily to be fake. Then who made it and why? First of all, let’s see the original video frame:
Only one missile here in the real video. Let’s look at the YouTube fake and see another frame:
Talk about “too good to be true,” but this frame never showed up on the original at all. What was seen was this:
We had to enhance the video to see this frame because the smoke made it difficult to find. Theirs, however, is clear as a bell, superimposed. Here is another angle on the same missile, this one real as well:
Grow Up, It’s a Bomb!
Beirut is a “given,” an obvious nuclear attack confirmed by every senior officer in the Pentagon and by the President of the United States.
They all say it was a bomb, a nuclear weapon and not a single word to back away from this assertion has been made by either the generals or by Trump.
Strangely, however, there exists a second narrative, one changing day by day with new “alternative facts” added, stories changed, more censorship, more intimidation, telling of a grand “accident” where, in its most recent and absurd guise, abandoned fertilizer accidentally mixed with 2000 barrels (the specific amount required to achieve some explosive capability) of kerosene and diesel fuel was set off by tons of abandoned fireworks.
This means that teams mixed the oil into one ton bags of fertilizer and then set fuses to fireworks placed among the bags, all as kind of a joke, people with too much time on their hands, bored with the heat of Beirut in summer.
Then it all blew up while video of a missile, video with sound of diving Israeli bombers and a strange video of a drone are released.
This is the video that the current regime in Beirut may well be using. Frank Drebbin isn’t named but we are waiting for him to show up on an Interpol Red List:
Seeded into YouTube with “doublefake” videos are others with the sound of Israeli planes erased or original 1080p or 4k videos now at 240p with frame rates as low as 15fps.
It all began with CNN in Dubai, they created the first fakes by simply cutting the 3 frames of the descending missiles out then colorizing to “natural,” child’s play when it comes to video fakery.
The continuing “gold standard” for “caught” is this Israeli plane climbing up and away from the explosion, sound recorded many times, seen by hundreds and showing up in many videos:
When your day job is analysis of satellite imagery, CNN’s childish efforts are sad. Real stuff, courtesy of 4C Control and the UAE Ministry of Defense (SAR less than 1 meter)
Ask CNN to match this photo with one from their vault or look on Google. Good luck with that. This was taken through dense forest in the DRC. These are Russian t-72 tanks.
Beirut a Footnote in a Very Long History
The story of Beirut goes back many years and could begin anywhere. Let’s begin with the dissolution of the Soviet empire and the election of Bill Clinton as president of the United States. With Clinton’s election came a massive “peace dividend,” cutting military expenditure by 35% and beginning to pay off the National Debt. This threatened the hold the Federal Reserve, the coalition of Rothschild controlled banks, has had on the United States since 1913.
This same coalition, Rothschild, Schiff, Warburg had softened Russia up in 1905 by engineering the Russo-Japanese War, it was Max Warburg that sent Lenin to St. Petersburg to take down Russian democracy and establish a Bolshevik regime and it was Paul Warburg who wrote the Federal Reserve Act, became its first Director and who, from the rear, led the US into World War I.
The solution to the Clinton presidency was Monica Lewenski, a Mossad mole, and when that didn’t work, a “jammed” presidential election with a fake “hanging chad” narrative written in Tel Aviv and world organized crime under the Kosher Nostra sending their powerful Federalist Society law firms into courtrooms controlled by corrupt Reagan appointed judges to kill the 2000 election and send it to the Supreme Court who quite illegally discarded the constitution and appointed an empty cowboy hat to the presidency.
The rationale, run the debt back up, which was quickly being paid off entirely by Clinton at a measly $4 trillion. Bush 43 tripled the debt and left a 6000 DOW. The carryover of the greatest economic collapse until Trump carried the debt to $19 trillion and a slowing which was reversed by Trump. The US now sits at $25 trillion with 50 million unemployed and a GNP 32% lower than when Obama left office.
Thus, as Bush was put in office to start a generation of war and to bury the US in debt, all done on behalf of the those seeking a weakened United States, Trump has carried forward those same polices, put in office through a stolen election with the help of Russian oligarchs and Kosher Nostra cash and now its time for Trump to deliver the war he promised his masters in Moscow and Tel Aviv.
Truth is not for the lazy
This is going to be a complex story, one of double dealing and deceit and great evil. It will test the patience of many and the intellect of most as the world has become the sewer it has because cleverness has moved, level upon level, to areas unforeseen by all but a few who are never allowed to communicate with media or the public. Of those, VT has more senior psychological warfare experts than any organization on earth, something the FBI has found startling and has sought to discuss time and time again.
We must be doing something right, we aren’t locked up. As for the Beirut nuclear attack, and it is absolutely that, hold on this is going to be a bumpy ride.
VT is the ONLY Unbiased Source with Real Capability
To begin, we have no horse in this race. VT has cordial relations with Iran but our experience in Syria and Lebanon with Hezbollah has been less pleasant. They have been discourteous with our staff and tried, quite unsuccessfully, to bully Gordon Duff and Jim Hanke back in 2017 while in Beirut. Their “interrogators” were eaten alive. A play by play should be supplied by Jim Dean and Mike Harris who watched this from the sidelines, laughing their asses off.
The original story which went viral around the world is below. Nader’s VT show from Iran is there which includes the original video by Duff from the actual hour of the attack is included with annotation. It is a good reference.
Nuclear Ignorance is Very Real Death, ask Beirut
There are several areas to approach this from but the first is the game of deniability of nuclear weapons. As regular readers know, Jim Dean brought with him when he came to VT many years ago Clinton Bastin, chief designer for the US nuclear weapons program.
Bastin became our in house expert on nukes, debunking those who claimed Iran had an actual nuclear weapons program. Bastin gutted David Albright, Bush authority on nukes, as an ignoramus and fool and did it on the front page of the New York Times. Read:
In 2014, when VT received a major leak from an unknown source (FBI?) on 9/11, which led us to Dimitri Khalezov and our partnership with the Pommer/Prager physics team, we picked up Jeff Smith who spent 20 years as a nuclear arms control expert for the IAEA. Smith worked directly on weapons programs for the DOE for many years, a particle physicist, his knowledge of advanced nukes and of field theory has been a tremendous boon for scientists around the world.
Smith has worked to have more advanced material declassified for researchers than any other American scientist. His work, aided by a VT team led by Ian Greenhalgh can be reviewed here:
Key to how this applies to Beirut is easily discerned with hard science that cannot be challenged as this is “applied science,” not “theory.”
Beirut is “applied science,” or rather a victim of applied physics as it were.
I was on a VT show in Beirut several days ago, NTV a Saudi owned disinformation and propaganda outfit much like OAN in the US. When I challenged them openly, they cut me off after cutting my mike 4 times and failing to translate what I was saying. I was there to learn about the coverup and I learned much from these amateurs.
To set some ground rules about Beirut, we have to look at the elements.
- Who gains from blowing up the port?
- Did anyone take credit, in advance maybe?
- How can you make a nearly 600 foot across and 48 foot deep (corrected) hole in solid rock?
- Can a nuclear weapon avoid perfunctory detection efforts?
- What does the appearance of the explosion tell us?
- How did the coverup begin and progress?
- How have “official” investigations progressed?
- What available data is withheld?
This is, essentially, only a beginning. VT offered to send a team including nuclear investigators and medical experts to Lebanon and communicated that directly to Michel Aoun within hours.
We also opened a channel with Hezbollah through their representatives inside Syria.
First of all, we need to make folks aware of the situation in Lebanon, but without belaboring it. There is no real free press there, Hezbollah has their press outlets and Israel/Saudi Arabia have theirs and in between you have bloggers who are cleaned off the internet by Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Google.
Some of these are great journalists and brave people. When they get really good at what they do, they become dead people. This has happened in Lebanon over and over. VT personnel are currently banned by the regime in Beirut, not just from reporting but banned from the country. We can’t tell if it is the Saudi/Israeli run folk, Hezbollah or both.
Starting with the port, only days before the attack, as noted several times, Netanyahu claimed that Hezbollah had a rocket factory at ground zero. From the Times of Israel:
Site one, from the Israel satellite photo, is essentially ground zero of the nuclear attack.
And this from Israel Hayom, five days before the attack:
“Defense Minister Benny Gantz on Thursday instructed the IDF to bomb Lebanese infrastructure if Hezbollah harms Israeli soldiers or civilians.
A senior defense official told Israel Hayom that Gantz issued the order to prepare such a response during meetings on Thursday with IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Aviv Kochavi and other members of the general staff.”
It is important to note that both vital pieces of evidence are omitted from all reports of the attack with one exception, from The Nation:
“Speaking exclusively to The Nation, Abu Karim, a Hezbollah field commander stationed in southern Lebanon, and Abu Naim, a fighter on reconnaissance patrol in Beirut during the blast, depict an organization going from the depths of a military crisis to the center of a political one. (Both have taken a nom de guerre and insist on anonymity because Hezbollah fighters are barred from speaking to Western media.)
“In the first moments of the blast we thought we were under attack by Israel,” says Abu Karim. ‘We thought that this is it. It’s on!’”
This article is a vital read, not because of its accuracy but because it is an elaborate hoax. No Hezbollah commander would ever be a source for an American fake lefty journal and that is what The Nation has always been. (check) Thus we ask these questions, why was this written, by whom to help whom? The answer is startling.
It helps Hezbollah, to an extent, and it helps Israel. We’re going to be getting into that more as we try to dig our way to the bottom of the real wreckage, the web of deception that has wrapped the entire tragedy in Beirut.
Thus we get down to who does denial serve?
Hezbollah avoids humiliation from its “base.” It wasn’t ready to respond and now, after this, it may never feel the same knowing that Israel and Saudi Arabia can devastate Lebanon.
This will turn the Lebanese people against Hezbollah and bring in foreign interference, which was alluded to by Macron before the dead had begun to smell.
Demonstrated; the US is no longer a player in the region.
Other things, where is the radar from Beirut Airport? We had reports of US surveillance aircraft offshore, what did the airport’s radar show? Missile? Two nuclear capable F 16s?
Expect them to respond now with a denial.
Russia’s satellite and s400 radar covers Beirut?
The US has both surveillance planes and satellite and they already gave them opinion, they said it was a bomb. As this is the only intelligence publicly given, this would be sacrosanct. Now we see if Israel and Saudi Arabia can push the US into backing down and issuing a denial. We wait.
Privately both Italy and Greece confirmed the attack along with some sources in France. Publicly there are only denials but public denials are just that, public denials. Wars like this are never public.
The US sent 9 FBI agents but we were told that the Lebanese government ordered them out of the country. What is the truth? If they find for the “magic bean” solution, then they are playing in foreign policy and are attacking the President during an election year. Call this a “rock and hard place” solution. From VT:
“In 1993, Joe Vialls exposes some facts about single explosions that were very similar to the 2001 WTC bombing. The article, “Micro Nukes in London,” notes the sudden usage of massive explosions in business districts by the IRA with a brief mention of the 1993 bombing of the WTC. In the supposed first mega-bombing by the ‘IRA’, an eyewitness stated, “The ground shook under our feet. There was a brilliant white flash and a tall vertical column of smoke.” Significant information about the Special Atomic Demolition Munition (SADM – the general class of the W54 warhead).
While the government was working on the usage of a conventional bomb to the corporate media, there was accidental filming of investigators of the bombing in full radiation protective gear. Description of the crater created by the second explosion reveals a hole 60 feet wide and 40 feet deep. Quotes of physicists’ Galen Winsor, John McPhee and Theodore Taylor are prophetic for the usage of micro nukes. Taylor specifically notes the future usage of an extremely small micro nuke being used in the WTC in the year 1973.
Another crater 22 feet wide and 5 feet deep is noted in the article “Bali Micro Nuke – Lack of Radiation Confuses Experts.” Within 48 hours the Bali government found traces of C4 explosive. Next came the revised explanation of explosives on top of gas containers. After that failed to explain noted facts, the next theory was explosives with napalm.”
Thus we begin to follow Joe Vialls whose work on nuclear weapons is second to none. He says Lebanon was nuked by Israel back in 2005:
The complete article is in Appendix I
Here is what we know since:
- Overwhelming evidence that Israeli F 16s had just finished an attack run on Warehouse 12 when the large explosion occurred. We have dozens of reliable eyewitnesses and many videos, sound and even the planes pulling out of a dive, not birds, they don’t fly 350 knots, not normally. (Lots of birds were flying away, they look exactly like birds)
- Lebanese govt and Hezbollah now accepting that ammonium nitrate was in no way involved. Lebanon is built on rock and everything has to be blasted. The Lebanese know explosives, know how to use AN and all in Lebanon know this is a hoax. AN is not explosive, it burns even in an explosive slurry (ANFO) unless very large TNT charges are used to initiate.
- All involved in the AN story, the Russian ship tale, or claiming it exploded are now terror suspects though most are simply internet idiots. AN is debunked.
- This video has Trump’s real statement, he is 100% behind VT (embarrassing)
- Investigators are now looking at a two pronged and complex Israeli attack using a probable nuclear tipped Rampage missile (new design) while covering with an F 16 attack and possible conventional explosive. At this point, this is most likely as seen by investigators.
And now to the original story which has been hacked, backward counted by Google and so much more. We love it… VT was right once again while world media just published cheap slop. This never would have happened before early dementia Reagan got on the ‘free enterprise’ train for consolidating America’s wonderfully diverse privately owned local and regional independent media.
#Breaking #Syria President Assad orders all borders and ports in the country open to #Lebanon, orders caravans of ambulances to head to #Beirut and ferry injured to hospitals in #Damascus, and launches an air bridge of medical and food supplies between the two cities
Absurdity squared: YouTube and Facebook “Fact Checkers,” employed by the people VT claims staged the attack are wiping the evidence from the internet…who would have guessed it.
…by Gordon Duff, Senior Editor, with…
- Nahed al Husaini, VT Bureau Chief Damascus
- Jeff Smith, VT Editor, IAEA Nuclear Inspector/Particle Physicist
This is the original video frame, never posted anywhere, that proves everything on Facebook and YouTube which was taken down is real.
Infrared images of the missile itself prior to impact:
This is the same missile seen from a slightly different angle on impact.
This is an infrared video which shows, at 6 seconds, the missile coming in and hitting…
This infrared video makes much more sense than ammonium nitrate on its own. Yes NH4NO3 is an oxidising agent and explosive under the right conditions, it is also very stable.
— Darren of Plymouth 🇬🇧 (@DarrenPlymouth) August 6, 2020
This is the video that was removed from Youtube for “violating content”.
” First explosion was caused by Gabriel anti ship missile of Israel. The second explosion was caused by Israeli Delilah missile from F16. Our country is in complete jeopardy with this lazy and corrupt regime.”
This is the radiation signature of the explosion received from a source in Italy, submitted to VT by the International Atomic Energy Agency (UN)
VT: A general in the Lebanese Army reports that Israel dropped a tactical nuclear weapon on the port of Beirut today. He reports that this was done to collapse the current political regime there and revolt against Hezbollah.
Their denial, almost identical to Israel’s supports this hypothesis.
As the lies begin, nothing about this explosion, the mushroom cloud or the strength of the explosion is fireworks, which was the first lie, then ammonium nitrate fertilizer, they say under 3k tons, which was stored for years to use on Lebanon’s golf courses, when they decide to build them. No, nothing about today is funny.
We also add that earlier today, Netanyahu’s statement which we believe is Israel taking credit for the attack. Beirut is still bomb damaged by Israel from 2006. How you take Netanyahu’s statements as outlined in Times of Israel today, is a matter of faith, trust or conjecture.
The weapon was 6 kilotons. That report now:
“Getting reports from Beirut, a tactical miniature nuclear bomb has been used to attack the port, nuclear experts and researchers have randomly pointed out to the reacted particles in the fire ball.
Even if there is going to be a government cover up for peace and political implications in the coming hours, one thing is clear, it is a clandestine operation by some anti-Lebanon foreign agency not by some random terrorist (non-state actor).
Terrorists involved in Urban Warfare in ME do not have access to these highly advance tactical weapons. If they have it now, then someone is equipping them for political gains. Let us wait for the official statements from Lebanon. I hope our friends from Beirut are safe.
As per my latest source of information from Beirut. There is going to be a government cover up. The story about “Nitrate in the containers” is going to be declared as the original cause of the second massive explosion that caused the major damage. This will become the official narrative in the msm.
However, what influential and credible sources from Beirut are telling me is this:
“The Beirut explosion is about 100 times the energy than the 2015 Tianjin explosion, or 5.4 kilotons of TNT equivalent (using linear extrapolation from Tianjin, which involved 800 tonnes of ammonium nitrate).
Conventional nukes against Japan had 15 to 21 kilotons. But this explosion is different, it is because of modern tactical nuke that contains up to 10 kilotons of the hybrid material including uranium. It is this reason why we still have acid and radiation in the air. The storage facilities near the grain elevator are NOT marked for hazardous material storage, but are instead marked for general cargo. Therefore, you can guess it, what we will be fed in the coming hours.” – Ghayet Ali
” First explosion was caused by Gabriel anti ship missile of Israel. The second explosion was caused by Israeli Delilah missile from F16. Our country is in complete jeopardy with this lazy and corrupt regime.”
Hezbollah, we are told, is expected to retaliate against Israel and they say there is no way for Syria not to be brought in.
Jeff Smith of the IAEA confirms this is a nuclear explosion. The lies about fireworks in ships and fertilizer are what we always get. You don’t store either one downtown in a major city like Beirut under any circumstances. Not much farming in Beirut and they don’t celebrate the 4th of July there.
The smoke could well be missile fuel which may mean a missile storage facility was hit by Israel. We have confirmation from Israel that they were planning to attack Beirut 5 days ago in retaliation for Hezbollah’s military attacks on Golan, which were not reported anywhere.
We are told Lebanon asked for nuclear investigators from Russia but there is no attempt to protect the site which, even if this were a modern clean weapon, still be radioactive.
New video shows nature of the blast a bit better. We will keep updating.
Beirut Governor Calls Explosion a ‘National Disaster Akin to Hiroshima’
“A fire brigade of 10 people arrived at the scene. What happened is very similar to what happened in the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. They drove to the scene and disappeared. This is a national disaster for Lebanon. We do not know how we are going to deal with this”, Beirut Governor Marwan Abboud said. (Sputnik/Moscow)
“Israel has nothing to do with the massive explosion that rocked Beirut on 4 August, the country’s parliamentary TV channel has announced. A similar statement was made by an anonymous Israeli official in an interview with Reuters, while the country’s Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi alleged that the blast was likely an accident caused by a fire.” (Sputnik/Moscow)
Earlier/VT: Two explosions in Beirut, one a conventional guided bomb followed by a small nuclear weapon. The target is now confirmed to be a Hezbollah missile storage facility.
This is the second explosion, that looks like the plasma ball of a nuclear explosion to me, note the white colour indicating extremely high temperatures – no conventional explosion burns so hot. Also note the great height of the plasma ball – it is taller than the grain silo. I am very strongly reminded of the nuking of Tianjin a few years ago.The warehouse to the east he speaks of is the black building shown in the video stills above.
This smells like a cover story, I very much doubt there were any fireworks involved, the small explosions seen in the videos were more likely to have been munitions cooking off due to fires started by the first explosion.
RT has just covered the explosions and quotes a Lebanese govt. minister:
Health Minister Hamad Hassan told local media that a ship carrying fireworks exploded in the port. Video footage lends weight to his explanation, as it shows a small explosion followed by the crackling of fireworks, before a second and massively destructive blast.
Local residents have shared images showing extensive damage to property. The office of the Daily Star newspaper was smashed by the blast, with windows blown out and furniture flung to the ground. France24 correspondent Leila Molana-Allen said that her apartment was “blown apart,” adding that she thinks the blast was caused by a “missile from a jet.”
It looks very much like the Lebanese have invented the ship full of fireworks story to cover the truth. Molana-Allen is almost certainly correct – that it was some kind of missile or guided bomb dropped by a jet fighter-bomber.
Or are they going with the one we have heard so many times before when tactical nukes have been used – that it was a store of explosives that went up:Of course they would deny it was an attack, no-one ever admits a nuke went off, it’s terribly bad for public opinion.
Sodium nitrate, basically a big fertiliser bomb, nope, not buying that at all, this is the cover story they appear to be going with.
This local lady describes a feeling of melting, that sounds like radiation hitting her – being hit by radiation feels like heat, it burns you.
I don’t agree with the assessment that it was a fine particulate explosion, that wouldn’t explain the white hot plasma ball, only a nuke can explain that.
Windows blown out 7km away indicates a huge blast, again, suggesting this was indeed a nuke.
The phones going down is probably due to the EM pulse that nukes produce.
BREAKING: Massive explosion in Beirut, Lebanon. pic.twitter.com/RxWOpDAW0f
— Sarah Abdallah (@sahouraxo) August 4, 2020
There are a lot of casualties, probably mostly due to flying glass and debris.
Important Update: SADM was also used as the warhead on the short-range Davy Crockett Anti-Personnel shell. Stockpiled W54 warheads were test fired at the Nevada Test Site on July 7 and 17, 1962.
In Little Feller II on July 7, the warhead was suspended on cables about three feet above the ground (yield was 22 tons). In Little Feller I on July 17, a Davy Crockett was fired from a stationary 155 millimeter launcher (in tandem with simulated battlefield manuevers under Operation IVY FLATS) and detonated about 20 feet above the ground at a distance of 9,357 feet (1.7 miles) from the launch point (yield was 18 tons).
This test, the last atmospheric detonation at the Nevada Test Site, was observed by Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy and presidential adviser General Maxwell D. Taylor. Footage of Operation IVY FLATS was declassified by the Department of Energy on December 22, 1997.
Readers should note the report below providing operational details of SADM, was first published in June 1993, four years before declassification.
The mega-blast in the City of London last month, was the third in just over a year to warrant a permanent place on the Richter Scale. This bomb and others in London and the New York World Trade Centre all shared three common features: Each mega-bomb was detonated in a high-profile business district, each left few if any scorch marks, and the resulting shock-blast on all three occasions exceeded by far the normal explosive and logistic capabilities of any existing, known “terrorist” organization.
The establishment media recently suggested the World Trade Centre bomb was “home made” and placed in an underground car park by a blind Islamic militant from New Jersey. The claim was ludicrous, because the shock-blast needed to rip through seven floors of reinforced concrete car park, cannot be generated by components purchased over the counter at a chemical warehouse.
On 23 March, Tom Valentine of Radio Free America interviewed veteran nuclear physicist Galen Winsor, who said the blast was not caused by a low-yield conventional explosive charge. Galen Winsor went much further than this. “I’m sure it was just exactly what John McPhee predicted 20 years ago in his book, The Curve of Binding Energy” he said, “where McPhee quoted Theodore B. Taylor, a theoretical physicist out of Los Alamos, who said that someone someday was going to blow up the World Trade Centre with a small nuclear device, the size of a stick of gum.” Winsor continued, “McPhee’s book was published in 1975, although the prediction first appeared in the New Yorker magazine in 1973. Taylor worked in the area of the micronization of nuclear weapons, in other words making nuclear weapons small enough so the Israelis could carry them around in a briefcase.”
At first glance the thought of micronized nuclear weapons being used in major cities seems absurd, but there is now considerable evidence indicating strongly that small nuclear devices were also responsible for the two massive London blasts. In London both mega-bombs were detonated at or below street level, but still generated massive shock-blasts. Here the finger was pointed at the IRA but the propaganda value of the isolated bomb blasts is questionable, and the IRA has no record of bombing high profile business centres.
Media use of IRA code-words in London to “authenticate” both mega-bomb blasts means nothing: The establishment media in London can whistle up five or more IRA code words in a matter of seconds if the mood takes it. There is another drawback where the IRA is concerned, which is its ability to obtain and import huge volumes of high explosive. If the media is to be believed, the IRA, normally incapable of smuggling guns to the mainland, apparently imported at least two tons of high explosive in less than eighteen months. Sniffer dogs at UK ports are famous for their ability to detect marijuana in quantities as low as two ounces. The same dogs are also trained to sniff for explosives.
When the first London bomb exploded on the night of the British General Election in April 1992, the police were lured away from the site by a “known IRA code word”. There is no IRA track record of such deception. Traditionally the IRA either provides British authorities with an accurate warning, or it provides no warning at all. Further, the IRA does not normally waste vast quantities of explosive where it will cause virtually no injuries. Backing up the non-IRA sequence of events were eyewitness reports from a range of more than three miles, which were chilling.“The ground shook under our feet. There was a brilliant white flash and a tall vertical column of smoke.” Powerful modern high explosives do not flash brilliant white at all, but critical nuclear devices certainly do. Nuclear devices also send out near-instantaneous seismic shock waves that ripple underground for miles, shaking the ground severely.”
In what may have been the greatest Freudian slip of the nineties, the British Government claimed the weight of the first bomb was 45 kilograms, a puny weight in conventional explosive terms, but the exact weight of the small atomic shell fired by NATO’s 155mm FH-70 L/39 long range gun-howitzer. Two nuclear physicists in Australia confirmed the 155mm gun’s core nuclear device would measure no more than three inches in diameter. Those physicist’s April 1992 opinions were considerably reinforced during March 1993 by Galen Winsor, when he pointed out:” The model of a miniature nuclear bomb that I have which is 2 3/4 inches in length, was made from 94 per cent pure Pu-239 [Plutonium]. This is actually a lot bigger than the Israeli briefcase bombs.”
Until now few members of the public have been aware how small modern micronized nuclear devices really are, or the way in which their explosive yield is tightly controlled. One device that has been around since the seventies is the American SADM (Special Atomic Demolition Munition), which is carried by a single soldier and used to create behind-the-lines mayhem for the enemy. SADM is tiny and lethally efficient: its tightly controlled 0.01 kiloton atomic yield generating the same explosive blast as ten tons of TNT, from a package small enough to send by motorcycle courier. Unluckily for the public at large SADM also produces quantities of localized radiation, which can be detected by reading the ultraviolet spectrum in the immediate vicinity of the blast, but few workers in London or New York have access to the scientific equipment needed for such specialized monitoring.
While the British Government was busy convincing its citizens “The IRA did it”, London TV cameras were accidentally filming a team of experts entering the blast area wearing full nuclear protective clothing. Extraordinary behaviour from experts simply walking around taking a quick peek at the remains of an old-fashioned IRA bomb, traditionally manufactured from ammonium nitrate & diesel.
Almost exactly a year later the second London mega-bomb exploded in the same part of the financial centre. Like the first, damage was awesome with repair estimates running as high as US$1 billion. Once again the obvious was completely overlooked: repair bills from huge IRA bombs detonated in the centre of Belfast generally range from ten to twenty million dollars. Viewed in dollar-damage terms alone then, each mega-bomb in London was at least fifty times more powerful than its crude IRA cousins across in Northern Ireland. Put bluntly, the Irish Republican Army simply does not have access to the technology for the London mega-bombs.
The April 1993 bomb was supposedly detonated in a parked garbage truck, but managed to create a huge crater in the road that was subsequently filmed by the media: another crucial error confirmed by independent explosives experts in Australia. The blast from most bombs takes the easiest path, in this case outwards then upwards to atmosphere. The crater could only have appeared if the bomb was dropped from an aircraft, or was buried in advance. Forget the “garbage truck”, which was merely a decoy device. The crater is very impressive, measuring roughly forty feet deep by sixty feet in diameter. The media footage provides mute proof the awesome bomb could not have originated in Northern Ireland.
Radiation left behind by nuclear devices, even micronized nuclear devices, can be extremely dangerous for those forced to work in the area after the bomb has exploded: Probably a very good reason for the American and British Governments to blame Islamic Militants and the IRA respectively. For as long as the general public remain unaware of the risk they will continue to commute to work and happily beaver away at their desks. If either government “went public” with the news that nuclear devices had been detonated, there might be widespread panic in two of the most important business districts in the world, perhaps leading to a complete refusal to return to work.
Worse still would be the “run-on” effect when smaller conventional bombs exploded at a later date. To a nervous and jittery public, every explosion would be a potential nuclear device with the attendant risks of radiation poisoning. Under the harsh doctrine of the “New World Order”, it seems likely the health & lives of a few thousand office workers would gladly be sacrificed in order to avoid short term chaos.
During early May 1993, ITN World News from London carried an interesting feature in which it was explained that due to thefts of highly-radioactive Uranium 235, terrorists would now be able to contaminate conventional bombs with 500 grams of Uranium, thereby forcing the police to stay away from the area for days. Exactly why experienced terrorists would risk detection & death by transporting deadly unshielded Uranium around in their pockets was not explained. There is no credible reason for keeping the police and other authorities away from a bombsite after the weapon has been detonated. However, the rumour could form the basis of a government defence in cases where American or British citizens located positive traces of radiation, near the World Trade Centre or in the City of London, for example.
The question of exactly “who” is bombing some of the largest business centres in the world currently remains unanswered, though the brute power of the bombs limits the candidates. Much has been said in America about the possible involvement of the Israeli intelligence service, Mossad, but the only hard evidence pointing in its direction are the two London bombs exploding on a Saturday: the Jewish Sabbath. While this would certainly have limited the number of possible deaths among Jewish business staff in the City of London, the timings might be coincidental.Most likely the question of “who” will never be answered. The self-appointed “New World Order” has imposed its draconian will on a large number of resentful countries in a very short period of time, evidently wishing to change the world into a great, peaceful, American-led democratic environment. Perhaps one similar to that existing in Los Angeles after the first Rodney King verdict was handed down.
Any one of a dozen different countries with a grudge against the “New World Order” could be responsible for the bombs if it managed to buy or manufacture micronized nuclear weapons. Most frightening of all is the reality that America and Britain are utterly powerless to resist attacks of this kind. Though their intelligence services have computers full of Islamic and IRA suspect’s names, those names are worthless if the attacks are being launched by another nation, as appears to be the case. There is no way in the world the American or British police can hope to detect a complete stranger with a briefcase bomb among tens of thousands of other citizens with briefcases, in two of the most densely populated western cities on earth. The most compelling question is when the bombers are going to remove the kid gloves and place one of these devices in Time Square or Piccadilly Circus during the rush hour.
American nuclear physicist Galen Winsor claimed the bomb planted in the World Trade Centre was incorrectly placed: ” They intended to topple one tower of the World Trade Centre into the other tower and take out [kill] more than fifty thousand people.” On the available evidence it seems the aspirations of a small arrogant bunch of men who decided to impose a “New World Order’” on a host of very unwilling small sovereign nations, did not think the exercise through to its perhaps inevitable conclusion. Those same arrogant men have placed tens of millions of citizens at risk because of their own gross incompetence and thirst for absolute power. The “New World Order” now seems set to face the unbridled wrath of large numbers of citizens for many years to come.
