  1. IMHO and respectfully suggested, you should make a round-up (“intel drop”) summary article out of everything you discussed. Was gold. UAE/Erik Prince/Security Contractor corridors, etc. I imagine you can even span it into an article series, as we approach again a nexus point of the 9/11 mafia types. This is one of the few discussions I’ve heard where the actual corporate entities are named and the meat of the tangible processes in the backchannels are discussed versus generalized discussions that blur/conflate factions/groups under names people can recognize.

    • But the photo shown, may just have been borrowed from some other news story, in order to merely serve as example of “damaged tanker”. In fact, t is obvious that the “ednews” photo shows a ship damaged by a collision with another ship, hitting it at a 90 degree angle. The waterline hole is typical of a collision with a ship equipped with a bulb.

  2. The first thing that came to my mind was quo bono/who benefits and immediately Israel came up. They are the only ones in the region who would dare such an operation if indeed it actually happened, as Gordon stated there has been no videos of any kind leaked out. That doesn’t mean that it didn’t but until more intelligence is
    brought to light there will be more speculation. However, it is not far off to speculate that Israel was behind it. They are quite capable of doing something like this as they have in the past.
    Because of skunks like Pompous and Butthead, the world is not nervously watching the events and worrying things could very easily get out of control, which is exactly what Israel would like.
    If Israel thinks it will emerge smelling like a rose, they are quite delusional.

  3. What struck me from the list that was shown, is that there were five ships hit. And four of them were sailing under the UAE flag, one of them under the SA flag.

    To me this indicates that it may have been a warning, sent by “someone”, a warning that intends to put some pressure upon the UAE authorities.

    Who knows what is happening behind the scenes? Lots of consultations I am sure, across the whole spectrum. Many goverments may in fact be in the process of questioning their own policies thus far. Many doubtlessly looking at new openings and opportunities for increased stability and safety for their countries – now located in the midst of a very turbulent region.

  4. There was more than one ship burning, maybe a pair of they was sabotage or terrorist attack or maybe who knows what, but if this has been also used to cover up a test in real conditions of one these norwegian missiles with conventional warhead or unarmed??
