Editor’s note: There is always the desire for Fetzerian types to find something dramatic but fictional that will encourage readership and inspire conspiracies. As a non-commercial news organization, VT would like to entertain but has chosen to resist. Thus, when the opportunity came up, we kept silent on what we saw in Ukraine until Jeff Smith, the real professional, met with other nuclear physicists, and came up with a theory.
Remember, this is a theory based on very real expertise in nuclear fission/fusion and weapons detection and, moreover, a history of working in nuclear non-proliferation with Russia/Ukraine/Iran and others during this period.
We assert that a nuclear weapon went off in Ukraine and more than one may have “fizzled.” Our expertise indicates that this is possible and expert observation says at least one device went critical.
Our knowledge, based on CIA and IAEA access at the highest security levels gives us the reasons listed below which we assert. This is not proven but were we to fail to “assert,” it would be worse than not stating what we know.
Either way, we have nothing to gain. Enjoy the ride… Gordon
EXCLUSIVE: Nuclear Explosion in Ukraine
by Ian Greenhalgh and Jeff Smith
As Jim Dean reported earlier this week, there was a spectacular series of explosions at an ammunition dump in the Ukrainian city of Balakleya, in territory held by the Kiev government.
The cause of the holocaust has been attributed to sabotage and the finger of blame has been pointed at Russia, however, as of yet, no evidence of sabotage or Russian involvement has been forthcoming.
Our sharp-eyed nuclear weapons expert Jeff Smith studied the video footage of the explosions and noticed what we are certain is a nuclear explosion.
The nuclear blast can be seen at 2:17 in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ox3EL9caJrU (video removed by YouTube.com)
The same blast can be seen from a different angle at 3:54 in the following video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5HF3sox-1RU (video removed by YouTube.com)
This video is no longer available because the YouTube account associated with this video has been terminated.
While we are certain this was a nuclear detonation due to the classic daytime white-out flashbang and shockwave followed by the mushroom cloud, we do not know if this was a deliberate detonation or some stored nukes were set off by the other ammunition exploding.
In the still frame below, you can see the plasma rain falling from the rising mushroom cloud, a clear sign this was a nuclear explosion.
Ukraine is supposed to have given up all of its nuclear weapons in the 1990s, however, we have good reason to believe that Ukraine illegally possessed SS-21 short-range tactical nuclear missiles.
Below are two examples of pieces of SS-21 missile wreckage that has landed near the ammo dump after ‘cooking off’.
Gordon and Jeff reported in January that Tom Countryman had been fired from the US State Dept.:
We believe that Countryman was covering up Ukraine’s illegal possession of tactical nukes. Perhaps Russia did sabotage this ammunition dump in order to destroy Ukraine’s nukes, if so, it looks like Trump gave Putin the green light on this one.
There is a backstory here as well. It is said that Iran went to Ukraine after 9/11 and purchased a nuclear capability. Iran needed “temporary insurance” while its existing nuclear weapons program was years from a successful test, a program the CIA has categorically stated was dismantled in late 2003.
Iran sought, the story goes, the ability to vaporize an American carrier battle group with a Russian/Ukrainian 550KT thermonuclear weapon. We had been given evidence of the sale and transfer some years ago, but evidence can be faked. We had also been given evidence that Iran had the devices but sought, by 2007, to rid themselves of the liability of having nuclear weapons.
The rationale for the Bush/Blair sexed-up dossier that led to the attack on Saddam and the murder of Dr. John Kelly was the assertion that Iraq had purchased/stolen 3 South African nukes that disappeared from British custody in Oman in 1990.
If you don’t know this story, see what you can find “out there.” If you find nothing, we will dig it up and retell it.
