Analysis shows Syria came under attack by Israel using, not just nuclear weapons, but an American nuclear bunker buster bomb, one of several supplied to Israel to use against Iran, one of the last acts of the Bush/Cheney administration.

Striking evidence of the use of American EPW (Earth Penetrating Weapons) nuclear weapons in Syria has come to light. Experts say the proof is irrefutable.

Dramatic video footage from Syria has revealed startling evidence that counters Israel’s claims of “surgical strikes” on weapons headed to Lebanon.

What were said to be air strikes is now proven to have actually been artillery, something easily discernible to even an untrained observer.

What happens next is shocking. While artillery shells rain down on Syrian army positions, mobile Israeli artillery in direct support and even accompanying rebel forces inside Syria, a huge explosion occurs.

After analysis, it had become clear, Syria had come under attack by Israel using, not just nuclear weapons, but an American nuclear bunker buster bomb, one of several supplied to Israel to use against Iran, one of the last acts of the Bush/Cheney administration.

Submitted for analysis, the footage was compared with tests of the 37,000-pound MOP (Massive Ordnance Penetrator), designed by Boeing to be used against Iran’s underground facilities.

Caught!  Frame Analysis of Syrian Nuclear Event

Nuclear Flash, Same Scale as Photo of 203mm (Above)

There was no similarity whatsoever noted between the Syrian “event” and a conventional “bunker buster” including the GBU 57, the largest conventional weapon every to be used.

More Proof

Colonel James Hanke, former Defense Attaché and Liaison between the Pentagon and Netanyahu’s government , reviewed the footage. He indicated that the GBU 57 is considered too high a risk for use because of its danger to the earth’s crust.

“The Syrian/African fault line spreads into Israel. Were it to be subjected to this kind of explosive power, the threat of an earthquake doing significant damage in Israel is a reality.

The nuclear bunker busters have far less penetrating power and, I am not saying that this was a nuclear device, not until more evidence is in, but the ‘event profile’ shows striking similarities.”

The other problem with the GBU 57 is delivery. Only two aircraft are capable of delivering this weapon, the B-52 and B-2 Stealth Bomber.

Israel does not have these aircraft.

Collapse of US Air Force Command Structure,

Again Thus, if a MOP where used, it could have only been delivered by the United States Air Force, an organization reeling from recent disasters within its own ranks after a second lapse in nuclear weapons security in a five-year period was discovered at Minot Air Force Base in South Dakota.

Seventeen officers have been removed, a “house cleaning” of unprecedented scale. Back in 2008, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates ordered a restructuring of America’s nuclear security command after a 2007 incident at Minot.

A B-52 was loaded with thermonuclear weapons and flown off the base, violating 84 separate authorization protocols. The plane was later recovered over 1500 miles away under circumstances that have never been adequately explained. What is also not clear is whether the entire nuclear payload was recovered, complete and intact.

Nuclear Use in Iraq Proven

The most important consideration is whether any command organization, be it Israeli, American or any other, would be willing to use nuclear weapons. There is little question that their use has been advocated by both political and military leaders.

The prohibition has been the ability to conceal their use. Events in Iraq have proven such concealment to have worked effectively and when conclusive proof of nuclear weapons use was offered to the media and world scientific community, it was quickly “contained.”

On December 31, 2010, Dr. James Fetzer interviewed Dr. Chris Busby, a bio-medical studies professor at the University of Ulster, engaged in research on the use of Depleted Uranium (DU) in relation to birth defects in Iraqi children. What Dr. Busby found was startling:

The interesting thing about the uranium was that we were able to measure the isotopic ratio because we were interested to see whether it was, you know, natural uranium or was it DU, which is what we thought it would be.

But in fact it turned out to be slightly enriched uranium [with U-235], so, that is to say, it was manmade enriched uranium. Now enriched uranium is a material that should only be found in a nuclear power station or inside an atomic bomb.

So to find it in the hair of the parents of these children with congenital malformations was really astonishing.

So we then went to look to see how this could be, and to cut a long story short, we concluded from various patents from the US patent office that we received from physicists, that it was quite entirely likely that there was a new secret weapon being used, an anti-personnel weapon of some sort which contained enriched uranium or else generated enriched uranium. …the alternative – which is sort of science fictional and which is entirely possible –

I have to say, which is that they have developed a sort of neutron device which uses enriched uranium as part of its components to generate neutrons. And the way it does this is to dissolve tritium in uranium powder…

What Dr. Busby is describing is an Enhanced Radiation Weapon (ERW) or Neutron Bomb. Other variations in America’s secret nuclear arsenal included Minimal Residual Radiation (MRR) weapons.

Evidence of use of “special weapons” has been found at the scenes of more than one terror attack, Oklahoma City, the World Trade Center (9/11), Bali and several others.

The first hard evidence published by qualified scientists involved Fallujah. However, use of nuclear weapons in Iraq and Afghanistan, is said to be relatively common.

Israel’s Bomb Inventory Scandal

  • One of the greatest “non-secrets” of recent years involves the placement of Israel’s weapons inventory. In 1986, Israeli nuclear weapons technician, Modechai Vanunu, was kidnapped from Italy and taken to Israel where he has been held for over 25 years. His crime; reporting on Israeli’s secret nuclear program at Dimona.
  • Cables released by Wikileaks revealed that the United States had, in 2006, allowed Libya to build a new chemical weapons facility. What has not been “Wiki-leaked” is that, when the facility was discovered after the fall of the Gaddafi government, it was found to have been run by the Israeli government.Since those initial reports, nothing more has been mentioned. It is very likely that this illegal facility, inside Libya, is still in Israeli hands.
  • In June 2010, the USS Grapple, an American naval vessel with an “unspecified” foreign crew, docked at the port of Poti, in Georgia. Ten Israeli torpedo boats, similar to those that attacked the USS Liberty, escorted it.The ship’s cargo was bombs, including runway and area denial weapons along with the enhanced version of the BLU 113 “Super Penetrator,” a conventional bunker buster weapon weighting 4700 pounds.

Azerbaijani Ploy

These munitions were then transferred to weapons bunkers at a former Soviet airfield inside Azerbaijan where Israel had managed to sequester a number of attack aircraft.

These planes had flown on to Azerbaijan after taking part in joint operations between the Turkish and Israeli air forces.

After their presence was discovered, we have been told the Israeli planes returned home but there is no evidence that the munitions had been repatriated to either Israel or to the United States, their place of origin.

Conclusion

We know and can prove that advanced nuclear weapons have been used in the United States. We have evidence of their use elsewhere in recent years.

We also know that methodologies to conceal their use and manage press leaks have been very effective and have created a combat environment where the “nuclear option” is always “on the table.”

We also have film and photographs from Syria showing something we have no other explanation for. Would Israel use such weapons? Do they have the means? Do they have a motive? Have they had the opportunity? Do they have sufficient control of press organizations to encourage this kind of blatant recklessness?

I think we all know the answer.

Iran Attack: Azerbaijan Throws Israeli Air Force Out After VT Exposes Plot

Prelude to World War III Outlined

by Gordon Duff, Senior Editor

Press TV just announced that Azerbaijan has assured Iran no Israeli attack would occur from their territory. This is their announcement, from Tehran, moments ago:

October 2, 2012 Tehran

Press TV – Azerbaijan’s ambassador to Pakistan says Baku will not allow Israel to use its airspace or land to carry out a military attack on Iran or any other country.

“Azerbaijan has been following a policy of non-interference in the [internal] affairs of other countries,” Baku’s Ambassador to Pakistan Dashgin Shikrov said in an exclusive interview with the Pakistani daily The News on Monday.

The ambassador strongly rejected rumors in Western media outlets about his country’s readiness for providing Israel ground facilities for attacking Iran’s nuclear sites. “Azerbaijan is member of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and nobody should have any doubt that it will not permit the use of its territory for committing acts of aggression against another OIC member,” the ambassador added.

Israel has recently stepped up threats of carrying out a strike against Iran’s nuclear energy facilities. The threats are based on the unfounded claims that the peaceful nuclear activities of the Islamic Republic include a military component.

Iranian officials have refuted the allegation and have promised a crushing response to any military strike against the country, warning that any such measure could result in a war that would spread beyond the Middle East

______________________________

Earlier this week, Reuters confirmed through two Azeri officers that Israeli forces were in place in Azerbaijan and that the president was weighing options of supporting their attack. That text is now below from Reuters. Their unedited full text is at Addendum I:

Reuters – Yet despite official denials by Azerbaijan and Israel, two Azeri former military officers with links to serving personnel and two Russian intelligence sources all told Reuters that Azerbaijan and Israel have been looking at how Azeri bases and intelligence could serve in a possible strike on Iran.

“Where planes would fly from – from here, from there, to where? – that’s what’s being planned now,” a security consultant with contacts at Azeri defense headquarters in Baku said. “The Israelis … would like to gain access to bases in Azerbaijan.”

It doesn’t take a genius to see that Azerbaijan was ”caught with their pants down” and is now trying to lie their way out of this.

___________________________

In an explosive turn of events, Press TV announces Azerbaijan has “turned chicken” after receiving a chastising based on receiving an early distribution of this Veterans Today document through Russian sources.

Additional VT staff were, while at the Pentagon, responsible for drawing up the war plans, not just for the initial invasion of Iran but the American invasion of Azerbaijan, slated for 2008, as part of a Bush administration military takeover of the entire Caspian Basin.

The map for that attack by US troops from Iran is below:

The cover sheet for the War Plans/Exercise Plans is below, a document that contained a full outline for needed capabilities for the successful takeover of all of the former Soviet Republics, beginning with Azerbaijan as seen on the map above.

Today, Azerbaijan announced it would allow Israeli planes to use their air bases to attack Iran. Reuters published the press release from Baku, one originally released in Veterans Today 27 months ago. From Reuters:

BAKU (Reuters) – Israel’s “go-it-alone” option to attack Iran’s nuclear sites has set the Middle East on edge and unsettled its main ally at the height of a U.S. presidential election campaign.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu exudes impatience, saying Tehran is barely a year from a “red line” for atomic capacity. Many fellow Israelis, however, fear a unilateral strike, lacking U.S. forces, would fail against such a large and distant enemy. But what if, even without Washington, Israel were not alone?

Azerbaijan, the oil-rich ex-Soviet republic on Iran’s far northern border, has, say local sources with knowledge of its military policy, explored with Israel how Azeri air bases and spy drones might help Israeli jets pull off a long-range attack.

____________________________

An investigation done by independent intelligence organizations made up of former CIA, Army Intelligence and FBI personnel as published on June 18, 2010, discovered a plot between Israel, Georgia, Turkey and Azerbaijan to attack Iran.

At that time, Israeli planes were training in Turkey on terrain meant to simulate Iran. Israel would send over 8 planes at a time and 6 would return. Sources report that two would fly to Azerbaijan where Israel now occupies two former Soviet fighter bases.

Israel was building a secret air force in Azerbaijan. That “secret air force” is now no longer secret, it is public knowledge but few know its history or the threat to world peace this irresponsible act represents.

The bases were supplied through the Georgian port of Poti with cluster and bunker-buster bombs being delivered beginning June 10, 2010. Units of the Russian Navy observed the deliveries and reported the incident to a world press that suppressed the story. The ship delivering the illegal arms were flagged American, the USS Grapple.

In consultation with intelligence operatives, it was found that the USS Grapple had been leased to Germany who had then allowed Israel to use it to deliver bombs to the Black Sea port under American naval identity.

We have since learned that Turkey, despite what they claim is a hostile relationship with Israel, has allowed over flight by Israeli military planes who are using Turkish air space to relocate to Azerbaijan after a two year period of disagreement.

This relationship, negotiated between Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and Turkish President Erdogan includes provision for Turkey to assume partial territorial control of a border region inside Syria.

Turkey is planning to seize this territory and call it a “buffer zone” but the “buffer” may include up to 30% of Syrian territory.

Israel and Turkey have agreed to “Balkanize” Syria. However, the roots of today’s announcement were known some time ago.

On June 18, 2010, over two years ago, this columnist released the following information:

“A week ago, Israel leaked to the press that they had permission from Saudi Arabia to use their air space to attack Iran. The Saudi’s quickly denied this.

The effort on Israel’s part was a ruse to cover their real plans, to attack from the Republic of Georgia, close to Iran’s northern border.

However, the breakdown in relations with Turkey after miscalculating the response to their Flotilla raid on a Turkish ship in international waters may have ended this operation.

Israel, whose arms agreements with Turkey mounted to nearly 5 billion dollars over a period of years, had been training pilots in Turkey for bombing attacks on Iran. During these training missions, Israel was smuggling aircraft through Turkish airspace.

Sources indicate that Georgia has become a major transshipment point for narcotics from Afghanistan and other countries in the region. Both a land route through Turkey and into Northern Cyprus and air and sea routes directly into Europe and North America have been cited.

Turkey had allowed Israel to use their air space for training because their terrain closely resembled areas of Iran that Israel planned to attack. However, Turkey was unaware that planes involved in this effort were being relocated to forward staging areas in the Republic of Georgia, making Turkey, technically, fully complicit in this planned illegal attack.

Helping coordinate the attack are intelligence units forward stationed in Azerbaijan, under the guise of technicians, trainers and advisors under the broad armaments agreements with that small nation.

Supply operations, moving necessary ordnance, much of it supplied by the United States under ammunition storage agreements, is being moved through the Black Sea to the Georgian Port of Poti, a major site for exporting coal and manganese ore.

Cover for the supply operations is being performed by the Georgian Coast Guard, set up by Israel and manned with Israeli observers. Their job is to keep Russian surveillance craft away from supply operations under the guise of a “Gaza type” naval blockade of Abkhazia, a separatist province supported by Russia.”

Reuters, in its story published today indicated confirmed sources within the military intelligence community of Azerbaijan. Reuters goes further:

“Yet despite official denials by Azerbaijan and Israel, two Azeri former military officers with links to serving personnel and two Russian intelligence sources all told Reuters that Azerbaijan and Israel have been looking at how Azeri bases and intelligence could serve in a possible strike on Iran.

“Where planes would fly from – from here, from there, to where? – that’s what’s being planned now,” a security consultant with contacts at Azeri defense headquarters in Baku said. “The Israelis … would like to gain access to bases in Azerbaijan.”

“ICEBERG” RELATIONSHIP

That Aliyev, an autocratic ally of Western governments and oil firms, has become a rare Muslim friend of the Jewish state – and an object of scorn in Tehran – is no secret; a $1.6-billion arms deal involving dozens of Israeli drones, and Israel’s thirst for Azerbaijan’s Caspian Sea crude, are well documented.

Israel’s foreign minister visited Baku in April this year.

But a leaked U.S. diplomatic cable from 2009 quoted Aliyev, who succeeded his father in 2003, describing relations with Israel as “like an iceberg, nine tenths … below the surface”.

_____________________________

The unknown factor is Azerbaijan’s ability to withstand a massive and immediate ground assault from Iran. US Army experts on the region indicate that Iran has a “superhighway direct to Baku,” the capitol of Azerbaijan and keystone to the massive Baku/Ceyhan pipeline.

Azerbaijan’s military, 45,000 active duty, a few thousand reserves and an unarmed and untrained inactive reserve of 300,000 veterans is extremely small in comparison to Iran’s military.

A reasonable estimate is that, under the best of cases with support from both Turkey and Israel, that Baku could fall in 48 hours or less, should they choose to participate in an unprovoked attack on Iran.

Azerbaijan is closely aligned with Turkey. However, they fought and lost a war in the early 1990’s against Armenia. Azerbaijan lost 16% of their territory at that time.

During that war, Azerbaijan turned to Al Qaeda and Chechen forces for support, an act that angered Russia. Azerbaijan is still a “safe haven” for terrorists and is commonly used to transit narcotics from Afghanistan and is a “way station” in human trafficking.

It is believed that an Israeli attack launched from Azerbaijan would unleash an immediate response from Armenia against Azerbaijan. The two nations have been at the verge of hostilities for nearly two decades.

A recent estimate of regional forces paints a very dark picture for Azerbaijan:

Since the fall of the Soviet Union, Armenia has followed a policy of developing its armed forces into a professional, well trained, and mobile military. In 2000, Centre for International Studies and Research reported that at that time the Armenian Army had the strongest combat capability of the three Caucasus countries’ armies (the other two being Georgia and Azerbaijan.

CSTO Secretary, Nikolay Bordyuzha, came to a similar conclusion after collective military drills in 2007 when he stated that, “the Armenian Army is the most efficient one in the post-Soviet space”.

This was echoed more recently by Igor Korotchenko, a member of the Public Council, Russian Ministry of Defense, in a March 2011 interview with Voice of Russia radio.

___________________________

CASPIAN OIL SUPPLIES AT RISK

The 1100 mile pipeline is the only outlet for oil from the Caspian basin to outlets on the Mediterranean. A branch of the pipeline services the massive Kirkuk oil fields of Northern Iraq.

The pipeline is owned by a number of companies with BP having a 30 percent stake.

The 25% stake theoretically held by SOCAR, the state oil company of Azerbaijan is under Israeli control, as collateral to underwrite Israeli weapons sales.

Israel has an agreement to link to the pipeline through Iraq, a deal negotiated between the Elat Ashkian Pipeline Company of Israel and the US backed Chalabi government that assumed control of Iraq after the 2003 invasion.

It is no longer clear as to whether the current government in Baghdad is still interested in this project.

Additional threats to the pipeline are in Armenia, where it may also be intercepted and in Turkey, where the PKK, a Kurdish separatist group, has put the pipeline out of commission many times.

The significance of the pipeline is great in that, even if Iran has no rationale to cut oil supplies through the Straits of Hormuz, it could easily gain control of 5% of the world’s oil output and put all Caspian Basin oil off the market without in any way interfering with free transit of sea-lanes.

Additionally, the transit fees charged for use of the pipeline are a major source of revenue for both Georgia and Turkey, a source that would immediately end.

Two “wild card” issues are Russia and Iraq. As Iraq’s government is now under Shiite control and Azerbaijan’s relations with, not just Armenia but Russia have been extremely poor, the chances for this move by Israel turning into a regional conflict or world war are very high.

Taking into account Turkey’s “ham handed” plotting with Israel against Syria and their attempts to spread influence into Central Asia, their short lived position as a potential leader in the Islamic World has clearly taken a “back seat” to Iran, Egypt, Pakistan and Indonesia.

Israel’s timetable to attack from Azerbaijan is entirely dependent on the risks their long time but highly secretive ally is willing to accept.

Minimally, Azerbaijan might actually disappear. In a best case scenario, they would lose additional territory to Armenia and suffer total devastation of their oil production and processing facilities and destruction of their armed forces.

For the rest of the world, the result, as expected, higher gasoline prices, higher food prices and more threats to currencies already nearing collapse.

    Gordon,

    “Analysis shows Syria came under attack by Israel using, not just nuclear weapons, but an American nuclear bunker buster bomb” – Gordon Duff

    Correct

    “There was no similarity whatsoever noted between the Syrian “event” and a conventional “bunker buster” including the GBU 57, the largest conventional weapon every to be used. Only two aircraft are capable of delivering this weapon, the B-52 and B-2 Stealth Bomber. Israel does not have these aircraft.” – Gordon Duff

    Also Correct

    To destroy a suspected bio-chem weapons facility located so near a major population center you would not use a conventional warhead, which would send the hazardous material into the atmosphere causing wide-spread fallout. Nor would you use a neutron warhead, which is an enhanced radiation weapon (ERW) designed for maximum killing power.

    What would work great for this type of tactical scenario would be a boosted fission thermonuclear device, which features high temperature and pressure at the center of it’s explosion with a relatively negligible energy release (radiation).

    One of these, of only .3 to .5 kiloton and mounted on a Bunker Buster with a timed fuse, would vaporize any bio-hazard entirely. And with the explosion taking place below ground level, the bright flash is mostly shielded from view and the majority of the shockwave and debris is directed skyward.

    They’ve been testing and refining these weapons for many years now and we now have bombs for every occasion.

    Try this one for size:

    B61 Tactical Bomb Version -12 (classified), fitted with Boeing’s latest Laser JDAM (Which makes it a Precision Guided Smart Bomb) (classified):

    * Variable Yield (.3 to 50 kiloton).
    * Delivery Platform: F-15, F-16
    * Range: >15 Miles (Classified).
    * Accuracy: <1.5 Meters (classified)
    * Hardened Penetration: Several meters (classified).

    Does Israel have this equipment? Let me put it this way:

    The US shares all of this equipment directly with five nations and indirectly with up to thirty nations via NATO.

  2. Gordon Duff  May 13, 2013 at 8:53 pm

    Interesting take. Tehran does not have such a system.
    As for the “fuel air” bomb theory, the duration of the flash, milliseconds, is a nuke signature, not a “cascading burn of a fuel”
    As for fuel related weapons, Israel could only deliver such a weapon with a C 130.
    My mother could shoot that down.
    I will take your comment as wild conspiracy theory and conjecture, interesting but unsubstantiated until I see some indication such a weapon exists.
    There is, of course, no potential mission for such a weapon, no delivery platform either.
    It would, in itself, be classified as a chemical weapon, were such a contraption to exist.
    I will call the army tomorrow and ask them if they have one.

    Wonder how many babies died in these bombings? Wonder how many innocent people died who didn’t do anything to anybody?
    Isn’t Israel the place where (supposedly,) God’s chosen people live? Did the bombs and missiles come from USA or some other country? Is this another fine example of our tax dollars hard at work under the new world order, where peace and security-freedom and the rule of law will take precedent over the jungle?
    Brought to you by the new world order and the makers of peace and freedom, and mostly the rule of law!

    Article Above says — “After analysis, it had become clear, Syria had come under attack by Israel using, not just nuclear weapons, but an American nuclear bunker buster bomb, one of several supplied to Israel to use against Iran, one of the last acts of the Bush/Cheney administration”

    Then I read ——– “The other problem with the GBU 57 is delivery. Only two aircraft are capable of delivering this weapon, the B-52 and B-2 Stealth Bomber. Israel does not have these aircraft.”

    So Israel obtained these nuclear bunker busters from Bush before leaving office yet has no capability of delivering them. So why would the Israelis want them if they have no delivery system to use them? What am I missing here? It sounds illogical.

    If Israel can’t use them, then wouldn’t that mean the Americans “nuked” Syria, if indeed this was a nuclear detonation we see in the video provided above?

    Also, if Syria was attacked by Israel with a nuclear weapon, I don’t understand why they wouldn’t retaliate. Even being shelled by Israeli tank fire I haven’t heard of any retaliation. If it was a nuclear bunker buster, why would the Russians be silent or the Chinese, or Iranians, the Shangai Cooperation Organization member states?

    Lastly, Gordon posted the following in response to a question in the comments above:

    —“Something to consider, if a nuke were used, and we have solid confirmations now, why would it not be reported?

    Not only did Syria not report it, they didn’t even shoot back.

    Why? Think about it…

    Then you will understand how nukes can be used with total security. No one can admit to being nuked”

    I’ve thought about it and I don’t understand why Syria wouldn’t fire back or report what has happened or other members of the SCO haven’t responsed. Why the silence? Unless the Americans are the ones who “nuked” Damascus and have blackmailed the other SCO members to keep hush hush about it. Not sure how the Israelis would keep those member states quiet about it, although Netanyahu was in China recently and Israel has had intertwined ties with Russia.

    Of course, that leads back to how the Israelis could use a “nuke” when they don’t have a delivery system for it, and even more, why would they even have obtained one from the Bush admin when they had no means of delivery?

    Please somebody, Gordon, fill in the details

  5. Preston James, Ph.D  May 12, 2013 at 11:28 pm

    Excellent article with difficult, near impossible to get, background info. The new nukes are fairly clean and many do not leave much residual radiation. Some are actual sophisticated fuel air hyperbaric devices detonated by a new, very small, late generation matchbox laser to nuclear detonators. Some are direct to fusion with no fission at all, minimzing any residual nuclear trace fingerprint. That is what I would suspect. Certainly the evidence suggests that this was no ordinary high explosive bunker-buster.

    The most serious part of this occurrence is the near dead silence of the Russians who have billions invested and highly trained missile interceptor technicians in Syria. If any of these men were killed, you can bet Putin will be seriously considering all options and will not easily sit back and let this one go with no response, covert or otherwise. Putin is a very strong and crafty leader who should never be underestimated as an experienced intel tactician. And some of Russia’ new supersonic zig-zagging interceptor missiles are very effective and not easily dealt with. Will they be selling these to Assad now?

    • Worker Bee  May 13, 2013 at 4:27 pm

      Or is Putin actually a Zionist supporter, as Gordon Duff has written in the past? And is China silent because they are making a deal with the Zionist banking cabal? If so, we are likely SOL.

      And if there is proof of Israeli attacks on Syria (conventional, chemical, and/or nuclear), why is Iran silent?

      To paraphrase Hamlet, “Something is rotten in the state of the world”.

    It looks like a small nuke, but if it was the syrians and russians would probably have said. Don’t they have geiger counters?

    • Emma Yacht  May 12, 2013 at 6:55 am

      This is higher than my pay grade but, as a member of the public that is in the barbecue food chain, I wonder how I could visually tell the difference between nukes and MOAB detonations?

      Wikipedia talks about FOABs:
      “According to General Alexander Rushkin, the Russian deputy chief of staff, the new bomb is smaller than the MOAB but much deadlier because the temperature at the centre of the blast is twice as high. He says the bomb’s capabilities are comparable to nuclear weapons, but unlike a nuclear weapon known for its radioactive fallout, use of the weapon does not damage or pollute the environment beyond the blast radius.”

      But that means the blast radius is polluted. And what compounds are in that pollution?

      It seems that if the hapless UN were really earning its keep, it might recall the right of human beings to clean air and water as part of that right to life/liberty/pursuing-happiness thingy. 

      Oh! Silly me! I forgot that the UN does not guarantee rights of any sort. I wonder why we send the UN money?

      Please forgive just another confused Democrat-Republican Swing Voter who clearly does not understand realpolitik.

      I think I’ll go away and eat some bananas now.
      Cheers!

    • Gordon Duff  May 12, 2013 at 5:08 pm

      Derek
      If it was, the Syrians and Russians would have said nothing.

      When the Syrian nuke facility was hit in 2007, we had a team nearby. There were NO radiation readings standing directly on the site. (We had an oil exploration team nearby.)

      We seem to have nuke sites with no radiation…

      Something to consider, if a nuke were used, and we have solid confirmations now, why would it not be reported?

      Not only did Syria not report it, they didn’t even shoot back.

      Why? Think about it…

      Then you will understand how nukes can be used with total security. No one can admit to being nuked.

      “No one can admit to being nuked” … because … no one wants to start WWIII??

    • mommyplayer  May 12, 2013 at 11:32 pm

      Because maybe everyone would leave and no one would visit.

      These nukes are eco-friendly. Heck, they’re almost good for you.
      I was thinking that the syrians were using a page from the civil rights and peace movements, namely being passive in the face of (in this case) external violent aggression. It is very easy for the world to see who is “bad” and who is “good”. The syrians are playing it well, and opinion is quickly turning against the aggressors.
      Thanks for the answer Mr. Duff, it’ll be mulled over.

      or that their exports would falter. even if there is little fallout, their food or other exports would have bad cloud lol hanging over them.

      I believe it relates to implications of the existence of certain technologies that have been kept from the masses.

    • homunculus  May 13, 2013 at 9:00 pm

      Of course that was just a guess, probably a bad one.

      Would you expect the Zionists to *not* eventually turn on their allies – think of the Israeli attacks on the US?

  7. Detlef Reimers  May 12, 2013 at 5:35 am

    Thanks Gordon, for this truely shocking information about Israel’s terrible aggression against Syria.

    Nothing but lies and deception is reported in my country and – as I see it – in most other western countries. The media try to hide the cruesome fact, that Israel used it’s long range artillery and also a devastating atomic weapon on supposedly military targets near Damascus from inside Syria.

    Germany just gave Israel it’s fifth modern submarine, which is also capable of firing up atomic missiles, although this fact is permanently rejected by official political and military sources. The sixth submarine is already underway to be delivered to the only country in the middle east, which is capable as well as willing to use atomar weapons (WMD’s) on every target they decide, as this article proves.

    The IDF turnes out to be one of the most murderous military force in the world, willing to execute any orders they get from their command, without any moral or legal restrictions. The current Israeli regime represents the most dangerous conglomerat of complete amoral and criminal subjects I can imagine.

    “Go, get the killer!” cries the killer and excapes in the dark. This is the truth we are now faced with on a scale, which seemed to be unbelieveable for most of the people in the world. Those people, who still don’t know the facts about this act of criminal state aggression.

    I hope, everything you mentioned – especially all the detailled sattelite molecular analysis records as well as the video analysis (this time, thanks to brave people in Syria on the ground) – will be safely gathered and stored for future times.

    I also hope, that at least Russia will be very active and have their military experts analyze the ground zero near Damascus very precisely. All these records should be gathered and the Israeli government as well as the military leaders must be brought to the international court and charged for massive war crimes. The UN has to get these records also as soon as possible, so that they also have to react directly to stop these WWIII end time maniacs.

    As you also profoundly layed out in your article, others are and where involved in similar war crimes as well. I especially recall the huge blasts at Bagdad airport and in Falludsha, added by the fact that using enriched Uranium in artillery seems to get miore and more “normal procedure” in NATO forces, which is also permanently and forcefully covered up.

    The upcoming political implications of all of this cannot – to this day – be layed out clearly, because of the ongoing complete media cover up. But VT together with a few other sites thankfully serve as trueful historical whitness, whereby taking a substantial personal risk in delivering these critical information to the public.

    Times will come, when all the gruesome truth will come out in the open. Most of the people, who were constantly lied to by their own governments and by the press whores, will presumedly be totally shocked by all this – but there is no other way than this to bring up real change in world affairs.

    Interesting that the Russians, who have much to lose if Syria falls to Israel, have remained silent regarding Israel’s use of a US supplied nuclear bunker buster in Syria. Given Russia’s expertise in the matter of detection and recognition, the use of a nuclear weapon could not have escaped their attention. What is Russia thinking? Up to their usual cynicism, trying in some way to game the West?

    Mr. Duff,
    Do appreciate this post. Figured the real nazis went overboard and deployed shake & bake on steroids-and they did.
    I do love the pathetic excuse making by the chosen on this comment board, sweet-like a bit of chocolate with your peeling flesh.

    Man that is one hell of an explosion, stunning to say the least. Classic mushroom cloud too. The development has to be so extensive that the fallout is quite limited, just like in NYC 2001. This is the “Dress Rehearsal” for Iran, scary stuff, that when the shock and awe is over, the massive Iranian army will stomp the IDF, leading to a much larger nuclear war to stop them.

    Mr. Duff,

    As always, excellent analysis. Thank you for all you do to educate the USA Citizens.

    Louie Gavin…to paraphrase Dan Ackroyd…you lying, ignorant slut. Yes, this is how controlled our “News” is; if Talmudia nukes arabs..they’ll help cover it up…they covered-up the actual perps of 9-11…we live in a reality almost totally controlled by the Synagogue of Satan…Welcome to the modern world..

  13. Grampah  May 11, 2013 at 12:58 pm

    And if free and alternative energy sources were not brutally suppressed for a hundred years, controlling the world’s oil would not be a major facet of world domination.

  14. shachalnur  May 11, 2013 at 9:25 am

    Mr.Duff,

    So Israel nuked Syria?

    “I think we all know the answer”.

    I don’t know the answer.

    Could you give it,just for the record?

    • mommyplayer  May 16, 2013 at 1:03 pm

      Today GDuff writes that the Israeli responsibility for the nuc is unconfirmed as is the transport delivery method. See the Intl drop piece.

  15. Emma Yacht  May 11, 2013 at 9:04 am

    “…generated enriched uranium, which is sort of science fictional…” Please don’t start this theme of “science fiction.”
    NO WIGGLE ROOM. 
    Science Fiction Does Not Exist!!!!!
    It’s a fiction that science fiction exists.

    Mankind must stop being in awe of what we can not see. Otherwise, we fail the test. We are here to pass the test. (Our second estate.)

    • Emma Yacht  May 11, 2013 at 9:12 am

      Dear All, we are feeling in CAPITAL LETTER-and-Taking-God’s-name-in-vain mode because of the energies surrounding Grandmother Earth. Don’t believe me? Checkout NASA’s time lapse of the energies. It’s science, not science fiction.

    Azerbaijan’s oil ” controlled by Talmudia” as collateral for “Israeli weapons sales”…What logic…If Azerbaijan didn’t allow itself to become an Israeli Air Base they wouldn’t need their weapons in the first place..

  17. Charlotte NC Bill  May 11, 2013 at 6:26 am

    Azerbaijan…the new “Kurdistan”..and Kuwait….all countries that deserve to be sponged off the map…Quatar, of course, deserves to be incl but for an american to say it is awkward….It’s like our Persian Gulf version of Puerto Rico..

  18. stephanaugust  May 11, 2013 at 6:25 am

    But, but, Associated Press, Reuters and Tagesschau did not report that.

  19. Charlotte NC Bill  May 11, 2013 at 6:16 am

    Goddamn the Saudis and the turks….enemies in the WW I era and now BOTH colonies of the Anglo-American Zionist cabal….Goddamn the Quataris, the Kuwaitis and all you Wahabi salafist tools of the Synagogue of Satan…These Talmudic monsters can’t claim “self-defense” ever again….PERIOD.

    • DaveE  May 11, 2013 at 11:17 am

      We’re only beginning to be aware of just how far and deep the zionist tentacles have spread. Satan’s Church has been at this job for a long time…… their evil is everywhere, not just the West. I wonder how infiltrated China is?

  20. shachalnur  May 12, 2013 at 4:05 pm

    What’s up, TJ

    Happy to see you are structuring understandable sentences,today.
    Untill now I had serious trouble desciphering what you were trying to say.

    You never liked me,I’m an alien and deserve my fate.

    Well, that’s clear then.
    Thanks,and all the best to you too.

  21. mommyplayer  May 12, 2013 at 11:56 pm

    I’m going to repeat a question I had before. I heard BBC radio state casually 1 week ago that Israel was the real al Qaeda in Syria. It was repeated and rephrased at least 3 times that day of the suspected nuc. They didnt admit the USG was al Qaeda, only Israel. (As an aside, taken to logical extension it would imply Israel was behind 911, on BBC ! ) Who ever controls BBC, is placing blame in Israel, and not protecting Israel. And if part of whoever controls BBC was actually funding al Qaeda in Syria, then there is a shift in blame. Maybe no one here believes BBC said this. To me it is important observation.

  22. shachalnur  May 15, 2013 at 12:08 pm

    yep,no doubt about it.

    Iran and Syria were never a threat to Israel,but started to support Hezbollah because of US/Europe threatening them.

    Israel collaborated with US /Europe and in june 2012 the plan was as follows;

    US will go for Iran.
    NATO/Europe/Rebels will go for Syria.
    Israel will try to take care of Hezbollah.

    But when push came to shove Israel found out US/NATO is not gonna deliver the goods.
    that would leave israel facing Syria ,Iran Hezbollah alone.

    Since than the toppling of Assad has been aborted and all wars have been controlled inside Syria ,without seriously spilling over.

    Israel declared war on Obama and US and Israel are at war now.

    Russia,China and Iran have been patiently waiting for israel to find out in what mess they are.

    Israel had no other choice then to allign itself with Russia,Chia,Iran out of sheer self preservation,or be suicided by their creators.

    I also predicted that the war between US and Israel will be mainly through leaks.

    After a round of leaks damaging Nethanyahu and almost brought him down,we are seeing a stream of leaks that damages Obama,and will put him in trouble.

    Israel has no friends or enemies.

    they’ll do anything to survive,the rest is spin.

    Good thing is that Israel is being fored to fight the Rothschild bankers that created them.

    It might help US and Europe to liberate themselves from this stranglehold controlling Britain(since 1815) and US(since 1913).

  23. mommyplayer  May 13, 2013 at 9:02 am

    Drop that. I answered my own question with a google search. http://www.worldaffairsjournal.org/blog/michael-j-totten/israel-bombs-syria-syrians-blame-each-other

  24. shachalnur  May 13, 2013 at 4:10 pm

    Hey mplayer,

    I’ve been repeating these things so many times.

    Even Duff wrote a few times that israel and Syria are collaborating,and now “israel nuked Syria”.

    Today jerusalem post”FSA commander claims Iran, hezbollah and israel are helping Assad”.

    Erdogan and his FM claimed the same,all this stuff is burried by MSM.

    Ahmadinejad said last year that Al-qaida has been brought to Syria to be destroyed.
    And that Turkey should back off,cause they don’t know what they’re getting into,and they are backing off.

    Israel found out that their creators are trying to destroy them.

    Israel has no other choice than to fight them.

    All organizations and constitutions controlled by Rothschild will attack Israel;

    Obama,IMF,World Bank, MSM,britain,ADL from the outside,,and Mossad, Stanley Fischer,Lapid,Bennet from the inside.

    Israel has alligned herself with Russia China,BRICS ,Iran and anybody else wanting to get rid of the Rothschild stranglehold.

    I’m not gonna repeat it anymore ,since nobody believes it on VT,so we’ll see.

    18th of may is special date for Bauer,I expect something special to celebrate this date.

  25. Emma Yacht  May 13, 2013 at 5:48 pm

    Shach, don’t assume that no one believes you. I think that you may be one of the more believable persons in the posse.

  26. mommyplayer  May 13, 2013 at 7:03 pm

    I think the BBC report supports your contention, I heard you the first time and I don’t feel good about the reaction on this website. BBC even put it in a print headline with a caveat, see my link you aren’t the only one.

  27. Derek X  May 14, 2013 at 6:36 am

    Yes shach, don’t sell yourself short. You bring up interesting angles.

  28. Worker Bee  May 13, 2013 at 9:02 pm

    As most VT readers know, terrorism was introduced to the Middle East by the Zionists in the 1930’s.
