DISCUSS: Crimean Bridge Attack and Russian Retalliation

In the early hours of Saturday morning, an explosion allegedly rocked the Crimean Bridge, the bridge spanning the Kerch straits and linking Crimea to the Russian mainland.

The explosion damaged the rail bridge and caused a partial collapse of a small section of the road bridge. CCTV appeared to show a truck exploding or perhaps a missile strike, it’s hard to be sure:

No one has officially claimed responsibility, but Russian officials have pointed the finger at Ukraine’s SBU.

The coverage of the attack – if it was an attack – diverged wildly depending on which side of the New Iron Curtain one’s loyalties lie.

Russian media, and Russian-sympathetic media in the West, were outraged, labelling it a terrorist attack. Whereas Western media were downright gleeful (the bridge has been a sore point with Guardian et al even since it was built).

Russia has somewhat predictably responded, with a series of explosion and missile attacks allegedly striking western Ukraine and especially Kiev since early this morning.

One clip shows a BBC journalist pontificating about Putin’s response, even as apparent explosions begin going off behind him:

Belarusian President Alexandr Lukashenko has warned that Belarus is next on Ukraine’s hit list, and has said he will be deploying his own troops to Ukraine.

Outside the war story, it can be expected this will result in yet more strain on global supply chains, and will likely lead to increased security and surveillance domestically in Russia.

But what do you think?

  • What does this mean for the war narrative going forward?
  • Will there be a wider war with NATO/EU involvement?
  • Do you believe the official story so far?
  • Is this a real event, or is it staged to some degree to increase interest in the war narrative?
  • …and will Russia (finally) stop paying Ukraine to transit its gas across its territory?

Its a bit like the Nord Stream Pipelines. It can be looked upon as a short term gain for the West or a long net gain for Russia. To me its not so much who planned and executed as much as who allowed it to occur. Make no bones, the current Ukrainian regime is a degenerate one that acts first and thinks later if even then. Russia wants to regain this territory without damage to infrastructure, economy and people while the current Ukraine Regime wants to inflict as much damage as possible in order to keep the UK and US laundry machine going as long as possible. The notion that they were going to somehow ruin the Russian economy and remove Mr.Putin from power has been deflated as wishful thinking. Russia will achieve its goals. Zelenskyy is there to ensure the price edges higher. Eventually cooler heads will prevail in… Read more »

For the 2d day Russia struck Ukraine’s energy infrastructure and military command centers. Despite the massive nature of the attacks and the damage caused, no offensives have been reported against substations with a voltage of 750 kW; attack on 750 kW open switches wd disrupt entire Ukrainian energy system. Also there’ve been no attacks near nuclear power plants.

Now 35,000 Ukraine/NATO troops reported massing close to Belarus border. Belarus & Ukraine are still accusing each other of intention to invade. Ukraine has blown their side of the bridges, mined roads & railway lines.

Since the bridge attack the Russians responded by bombing or targeting areas inside Ukraine. Now the world awaits the next move by NATO, the US and their puppet Zelensky. The war is escalating the question is how far will the US/NATO psychopaths go to achieve their goal which is the total subjugation of of Russia?

NickM

Russia is the target because the entire EU and most countries of Eastern Europe have already been subjugated by Anglo Zionazi Capitalism, and they host nuclear weapons directed at Russia.

Russia with its immense natural resources is the largest European country still remaining for Anglo Zio Capitalism to plunder. The AZC thought they had Russia in their grip under Yeltsin and plutocratic Western-backed Oligarchs. Life expectancy in Russia decreased by 5 years, and “a Natasha” became Turkish slang for a prostitute. But Russia broke free under Putin and regained both prosperity and autonomy — hence the current visceral hatred for that man and his country in “the freedom loving West”.

Agreed about the Big Picture, and much credit to OffG for keeping it in focus. But within the big picture (Anglo Zio Capitalists and their “Century of War”) wars crop up where people take sides — usually for ethnic affiliations, less often on moral grounds. For both reasons I am and on Russia’s side when “the West” attacks Russia, because Russia has always been a significant part of the best in European culture: today more than ever.

I agree. I studied Russian and European history in depth before I even graduated from high school. My first “girl friend” was of Ukrainian descent. Her mother was of Russian heritage, and lost two husbands prior to and during WWII. Her third husband was of Ukrainian blood. Fine people, even though their English was quite rudimentary.

Russia has been the target of ZOG financial interests for centuries. People keep forgetting that some of the greatest poets, writers, and musical geniuses, are of Russian blood… It is a sort of jealousy…

There is a very strong ‘nudge’ towards a centralized, cybernetic system of governance to be in place by 2030.

Social media provides the ‘feedback loop emotional data’ that enables the cybernetic system such as SWS, to adjust the ‘problem’ in real-time.

Two things should be known for this conflict: First, it did not start yesterday, it did not start in February too. It started right after dissolving the USSR, and changed a gear or few – becoming outright military- with the coup in 2014. Just ask ANY Donbass citizen. Second, Ukraine is not a sovereign country (that being written, which country is?). But there things are at a whole new level, with total disregard for population’s opinion (the ‘dissidents’ brave enough to speak are simply tortured and/or killed) – here we refer it to ‘404’ country (maybe with self-pity, because we are almost-404 too), it is totally externally controlled.

The first clip I watched of this had an extra frame. The flash of the explosion appeared but the truck is still intact. Since then a frame has gone from the clip and you just get a bright flash that obscures the truck in the first frame.
The first clip obviously demonstrated that it wasn’t a truck bomb. But has since been replaced by an edited version?

In my opinion, you need a lot more commentary from your team, because very soon, when global partners, including Russia, set in motion the global conditions for a “sustainable internet for a shared sustainable and common future,” and Russia, Ukraine, the United States, the West and China shake hands, those like you will be neutralized as spreading “destructive content” for a “conspiracy.” Putin personally will make a statement on this, I’m sure.

In turn, the head of the Ministry of digital technologies of Ukraine Mihailo Fedorov noted that Ukraine’s high position in the ranking is a result of the legalization of the crypto industry in the country.

We will remind that the Verkhovna Rada adopted the law on the legalization of virtual assets with Zelensky’s proposals in mid-February 2022.”

“This week, the app Action added an option to buy war bonds. During the three days the service was open, Ukrainians bought more than 25,000 securities from the state. This was stated by the Deputy Prime Minister – Minister of digital transformation of Ukraine Mihaylo Fedorov “You buy bonds, the money goes into the budget. Then the army, the medicine, the salaries of the military are calculated. Every Hryvnia, every bond is an investment in the de-acquisition of cities and territories. By buying bonds, you not only support the state, but also win. After all, bonds work as a deposit. First you invest money and then you pay it back with interest, “ Fedorov said . .. Just a day after the launch, the Ukrainians bought military bonds in Diya for over 12 million Hryvnia. The most popular were the bonds of Donetsk and Mariupol.  War bonds are securities issued… Read more »

The first clip of the explosion I saw has been altered by having a frame removed. A white flash begins but meanwhile the truck was still visible. The frame removed means it just looks like the truck exploded. So even the Russians are lying when they describe a truck bomb.

DOCUMENTATION THAT THE BRITS PLANNED THE BRIDGE EXPLOSION

At the earliest moments following the Bridge attack there was mention in the Russian press of Britain having planned it. However, as I had no details I avoided mentioning it.

I have found the detailed story, but prefer not to summarize it for you. It’s here:

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall see God”.

Putin tried making peace between Ukraine and its genocidal “cookie” coup of 2014: Minsk 1, Minsk 2, signed agreements which NATZO countries and their Ukronazi puppets broke. After an ethnic genocide of Russian speaking Ukrainians, that lasted 8 years and left 14,000 dead, with NATZO building up their Ukronazi protegees into the biggest army in NATZO (bigger even than the Turkish army) Putin made another peace offer, at the start of his Special Military Operation. The British Connection (PM Johnson) flew into Ukraine personally to squash that peace agreement. The British Connection (PM Truss) is still very active in stirring the fires in Ukraine.

Blessed are the peacemakers indeed. But there comes a time when even the greatest peacemaker will take up the lash to whip the Money Men out of the Temple.

I wouldn’t be spending so much time posting comments if I didn’t believe this is a moral crusade of good against evil; with Russia playing the same anti-Nazi role as it did in WW2.

The motto of our young generation in 1945 was “Never again”; and our heroine was Antigone. We enjoyed “the thirty glorious years” of peace, socialism and full employment with the Empire kept in check by “the spectre of Communism”. Then “the Empire struck back” with Maggie Snatcher and her Gospel of Greed. “The West” (which includes Israel in the Middle East and ANZ in the Far East) has reneged on postwar decolonialization, postwar socialism and nuclear disarmament, and is pressing the accelerator on its recklessly amoral downhill career.

Hence, resisting the persecution and murder of 14,000 ethnic Russians in a “cookie” Ukraine created by the Biden / Nuland coup of 2014, with its Nazi-symbol toting Azov battalion and its attempt to recreate ancient Chazaria (the largest Jewish nation in history) through Jewish-only presidents supported by Jewish Oligarchs in the Senate.

Until then the Anglo Allies just sat on their hands and watched the Red Army chew up 80% of Hitler’s Wehrmacht at Kursk. The West never faced more than the bear-hugged rump of the Wehrmacht — except at Dunkirk where the British Army very sensibly scuttled off to escape being rounded up like their French allies, and waited for Roosevelt to drag the U$A into WW2. Italy being invaded in 1943 (“three months after Kursk” — you said it not me) was a late show and a side show. Their soldiers very sensibly did not want to fight, and their partisans hung the Duce from his own balcony.

I think this attack and the one on the NS1 & 2 is more than just about “depending on which side of the New Iron Curtain one’s loyalties lie.”

With this one there does not yet appear to be much evidence, though motive is certainly there for the Ukraine side. With the NS1&2 attack there is ample evidence plus motive to show who did it.

And just because most admit to whodunnit on NS1&2, doesn’t mean they are Putin groupies and condone the invasion of Russia.

The real prize is CBDC.

I’ve noticed a bit of a trend, but it could just be me. The legacy media run some actual true articles about CBDCs, then within a day something warlike happens and gets smashed all over the headlines and the CBDCs are gone again.

It’s kinda the same thing that’s always happened. The truth is always out there and it’s always published. I remember when I was a kid, and before Mel Gibson was a conspiracy theorist, the truth was more often that not a 2/3 paragraph article on the inside column of page 5 or 6.

To answer all the questions at once, in my opinion, this is all part of the plan for the New World Order and the Great Reset. Russia is in on it with everyone else (to a certain degree).

If Russia really wanted to destroy and take over Ukraine, they would have a massive bombing campaign, wipe out the supply lines (no NATO weapons getting in – or the Ukrainian president getting out for meetings – or EU officials getting in) and take the territory.

We have not seen this. Russia is basically letting them do what they want – rearm, delegates in and out, and most of all, they keep the gas flowing. In a ‘real’ war, all this would not be possible.

Would never happen.

This PPP is where much of the power to implement policy lies.

I’ve not yet seen a convincing explanation for the bridge explosion and I think the US/Ukraine military may have some undisclosed weapon. The “wake” in the water which becomes visible half a second before the explosion is presumably connected in some way. The truck is near the middle of the next span when the explosion happens, so is unlikely to be the source. At 0:05 – Note the blown-out crash barriers and stanchions on both the collapsed and intact spans. Also, the kink on the intact span. https://www.reddit.com/r/UkraineWarVideoReport/comments/xylt19/footage_of_the_aftermath_crimea_bridge — Although the surface blackening probably indicates the location of the explosion, it’s possible (perhaps) it came from one of the train containers exploding. https://www.reddit.com/r/UkraineWarVideoReport/comments/xzhjqa/maxar_satellite_image_of_the_destroyed_crimean — One theory is that the explosion came from underneath, but the cleanness of the underside suggests not. https://www.reddit.com/r/UkraineWarVideoReport/comments/xz2pe5/damaged_crimean_bridge_from_below — My hypothesis is that it was a missile on a small drone sub.

The consensus official version is that it was the truck, but the majority “conspiracy theory” version was that it came from somewhat under the decking. However, the following (included above in the OffG article) contains a longer version of the water CCTV – which I hadn’t seen before. It shows after the smoke clears and suggests that the truck was indeed where the explosion occurred. And would mean that the wake was just a coincidence!

Lost in a Dark Wood: Official explanation is that the truck laden w fertilizer was allowed on the bridge cuz it can’t blow up by itself. A car had the detonator, and so the truck blew up just as the car drew abreast of it. This event occurred when car & truck were closest to the fuel-filled cars of the train on a parallel track.

AFAIK that’s what’s being reported by various Russian sources.

In fairness to Waggaman it’s not really an error. The MoD has had a program of mandatory c19 vax for soldiers and conscripts since June 2021, and last month the Russian info portal Explain said it was continuing with the same program for new reservists being mobilised. Waggaman understandably took this to mean c19 would continue to be mandatory. Others made the same assumption. However, on Oct 6, after Waggaman’s first article was published, the Explain portal released a clarification that this was not the case. Waggaman updated his analysis as soon as he was aware of the change.

“War is a Racket” by USMC General Smedley Butler. Free PDF can be found on internet.

I would argue that war has been predominantly contrived since Rothschild figured out how to take advantage of war, for financial gain. Specifically the Battle of Waterloo, and the War of 1812 in America.

One could argue that wars pior weren’t as contrived, however this should be addressed on a case by case basis. All to often, as stated in the “Art of War”, hot conflict is the ultimate expression of politics, and of dire consequences to the state and state treasury.

History is ripe of examples of how fruitless war is to We the People, and benefits the powers that be (TPTB).

Thomas Frey, WWI & II were contrived. See Wm Engdahl’s book A Century of War: Psychopaths ruling Britain & City of London banking, were using the produce w cheap-labor-sell-dear model. They were being out-competed by the Germans who were using a capital investment and subsidize workers’ living standards model. So British elites, City of London contrived WWI. WWII equally contrived. All of Engdahl’s books highly informative, an education in themselves. However he doesn’t lift the final veil: He doesn’t see that there’s collusion at the top among the West, Russia & China. He’s been to China, is very pro-China. (The Chinese method with journalists is to court them, and it appears to work) However, he’s a bright man; maybe he’s right & I’m wrong.

Glad to find another fan of Engdahl’s publications. My good opinion of “A Century of War” started around 1990 when I began digging into the internet to find out why we, in peaceful postwar Europe, were now dropping more bombs on Serbia than Hitler had done in WW2. The shafts that I was digging gradually converged backward in History, to 1900 and the City of London. That was when I read a summary of Engdahl’s Century of War, and found that his professional historical excavations had tunnelled toward the same starting point. The other illuminating book was given me a present by an Israeli friend: The Chamberlain / Hitler Collusion. Written by a Jew, it shows Britain and France encouraging Hitler to invade Russia, advising Poland to refuse an anti-Nazi pact with Russia and to join Nazi Germany in the dismemberment of ChechoSlovakia.

There is another really first-rate source that I have unfortunately lost. It’s a Russian journalist who had an entire free book in English on the internet. It was maybe 5 years ago. The book alternated chapters between explaining the way Russia was controlled financially, and explaining the British-German collusion in WWII. It was such a fantastic source, but like a dummy I lost the link, can’t remember his name, etc.

I also found his lectures/talks on youtube to be worth watching. Yes, I’m confused on his China stance.

Great quote from Thomas Jefferson (the founding fathers knew that the international bankers got control over nations by getting the power to issue the national currency and loan it to the government at interest, so they gave the issuing power to Congress.

It was reckoned to be a truck bomb. The official (Russian) line as of yesterday is that the bomb was likely planted during a 12 period when the driver was off duty and the driver (who was killed in the attack) wasn’t involved. I’d guess it was intended to detonate on the bridge proper but instead went off on the viaduct next to a train carrying fuel. The bridge is a useful piece of infrastructure. Even if Crimea was part of Ukraine it would be an important link between the two countries. Unfortunately the Kiev government doesn’t see infrastructure as important, what’s paramount are symbols of nationalism, of separateness, an almost fanatical anti-Russianism (which doesn’t make a whole lot of sense given the location of the country and the history of its people….).

For one things the energy from a truck blowing up is going to do almost nothing to the structure of the bridge and timing it to blow at the right time to do any real damage at all would be next to impossible.

Truck bombs have been shown to be very effective if they’re carefully designed. Its not a matter of putting some explosives in the back of a truck but so packing them to direct the blast. It certainly looks like an ingenious attack that was obviously meant to explode on the bridge proper but the timing was off slightly. Ukraine has tried a more conventional operation against this bridge a while back. It didn’t work out. Its also worth noting that around the time of the UN Inspectors visiting the Zaporizhizha nuclear plant there were two failed commando raids on the plant. These attacks were carefully planned and seem to have been timed to try to capture the part of the plant where the inspectors were, the goal being to get a foothold in the area (I’d guess).

Hmm, a war that lasts forever, now that would be novel. Now you are a hostage to fortune. The war against all those states which have invaded Russia – all seven of them – all failed except for the first under Rurik 1862 – 1228. The last 4 of these 7 invasions were with Charles III of Sweden, Napoleon, Hindenburg, and Hitler. Pretty good/bad record depending which side you are on.
