During the political upheaval in Venezuela, which we know was orchestrated by external forces, primarily the US, the unfortunate people of that nation had to suffer from several blackouts of the electrical power grid; no doubt these were the work of the US as part of their efforts to destabilise the country and overthrow President Maduro.
Russia, as a key ally of Venezuela, assisted them in investigating these attacks on their power grid.
Russia itself has now suffered similar attacks on it’s power grid and according to the NYT, this is a US attack as revenge for Russia’s assistance to Venezuela:
Venezuela Scenario: US Launches Attack On Russia’s Power Grid
“Earlier this year, the Venezuelan government accused the United States of carrying out cyber attacks on its electrical power grid system leading to nationwide blackouts. A similar scenario now plays out in Russia.
According to an exclusive report published by the New York Times, the United States government has planted malware in Russia’s electrical grid system in an act of revenge for “Russian interference,” according to former and current government officials.
It seems that Venezuela was a testing ground for the Trump administration in deploying more aggressive tools to interfere with the infrastructure of non-aligned countries. The current reports make the allegations of the Venezuelan authorities a lot more plausible.”
This weekend, another major attack on a nation’s power grid occurred, this time it was Argentina and neighbouring nations that were the victims:
“A massive blackout left tens of millions of people without electricity in Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay and parts of Chile and southern Brazil on Sunday. The Argentine president called it an “unprecedented” failure in the countries’ interconnected power grid.”
It does not take much of a stretch of the imagination to arrive at the thought that once again, it is the US behind this attack on a power grid. The tools used are well known and have been used on may occasions:
“We are aware of several malware variants that are used against power supplies, and some of them can be held responsible for major power outages around the globe.
Stuxnet is a worm designed to spread through Windows systems and go after certain programmable controllers by seeking out the software related to these controllers. Stuxnet is believed to be specifically designed to destroy the Iranian nuclear program, but it can also be used to bring down power plants.”
One reason for this latest attack in Argentina, may be simply economic – the US may want to persuade the Latin American nations to sign deals with US power generation companies, which is what they are currently doing in Iraq:
“A senior Iraqi legislator revealed that the US continues pressures on Iraq to ink agreements with American power generation companies.
Ali al-Qanemi told the Arabic-language al-Ma’aloumeh news website on Sunday that despite the US firms’ incapability to supply Iraq with necessary electricity and lack of progress in projects that they have been implementing, Washington is pressuring the Iraqi government again to accept endorsement of agreements with them.
He added that when the Iraqi government signed a contract with Germany’s Siemens company to develop energy projects, the US pressured Baghdad to ink agreements with American firms.
“This shows that the US has started the war of companies,” al-Qanemi said.”
This sort of corporate terrorism and bullying has become standard practice for the US, just another symptom of the terrible sickness of the Trump regime, which as I warned from the moment Trump announced his candidacy in 2015, is nothing more than a front for organised crime on the highest level.
It seems to me that what we are seeing is a US-Israeli campaign to wage economic war for profit, the chosen battleground is the global electricity generation and distribution sector and the weapons are the malwares and viruses developed by US and Israeli governmental agencies such as the NSA, CIA and Mossad.
