Israel post 1: May 11, 2021

1. Israel’s Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv under attack

2. News team had to break due to attack

3. POTUS 45 issued this statement:

4. Bus hit by rocket fire in Tel Aviv

5. This is Gaza I believe

6. Fire on Temple Mount May 10th

7. IDF warning and safety precaution

8. City of Holon

Please check the comments under this post, and under the Reader’s Links post for today for what Im certain will be a LOT more news on the current war in Israel which could widen and get a lot worse. I hope the Biden supporters are happy. They made this happen.

Thank you all who contributed to this post.

For the second time, the smoking gun of Chinese bioweapons and Covid is out in public

Please watch both these videos and spread them around. It is time for us to realize China is most definitly at war with the rest of the world, that Covid is indeed a weapon of war, and most of our own politicians either through incompetence, by being forced or blackmailed, or because they are ideologically in line with China, are on the other side.

For anyone who has the slightest doubt of the veracity of the video above, I would like to point you to a video we subtitled from Italian TV last year, which was actually broadcast five years ago in Italy.

Major military escalations from Russia, USA, China, Philippines

CBS: U.S. watching “escalation of armed confrontation” near Ukraine’s border with Russia

The U.S. military believes a buildup of Russian forces near the border with Ukraine, seen as “concerning” on Tuesday, is likely a training exercise. But the gathering of troops comes amid heightened tension in the region, and Ukraine’s Commander-In-Chief Ruslan Khomchack told his country’s parliament this week that Russian forces from different regions had been assembling near the border.

Russia’s president has acknowledged an “escalation of armed confrontation” in the region.

Training exercises were always a possible explanation for the buildup, but a U.S. defense official told CBS News that the locations and types of units seen on the ground didn’t line up with what the Russian Ministry of Defense had announced last month.

Ballisitc Missile hits oil tankers at Al Hamran northwest of Manbij in Syria

Ballistic missile strikes have hit oil tankers and markets across northern Syria on Friday, according to reports.

At the time of publication, reports are indicating that strikes were carried out by either Russian or Syrian government forces, specifically against oil markets controlled by opposition forces in northern Syria. Moreover, the reports are conflicting about whether the missiles were the Syrian Army’s OTR-21 Tochka-U or the Russian’s Iskander.

<b>The strikes killed one person and injured 10 others</b>, a war monitor and a source from the Turkey-backed faction that controls the region told The Jerusalem Post.

One strike reportedly hit oil tankers in al-Hamran, which is near Jarablus and northwest of the northern Syria town of Manbij, resulting in a massive explosion.

The exact location of theses strikes was determined as the al-Hamran crossing between the TFSA (Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army) and SDF-controlled (Syrian Democratic Forces) areas, according to a report. The supposed target were reportedly trucks smuggling oil.

Three missiles hit the al-Hamran crossing, according to Syrian journalist Mohamed Rasheed, “causing huge explosions and burning fuel vehicles at the targeted place.”

The Iranian threat that went unreported

First, the why:

Statue of Soleimani unveiled in Lebanon complete with drumroll

And the threat:

Chilling audio reveals threat to fly a plane into the Capitol building on the day Congress confirms Joe Biden’s win to ‘avenge’ the death of Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani

A terrifying message threatening to fly a plane into the Capitol building to avenge the death of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani was broadcast on air traffic control frequencies on Monday afternoon.

The FBI and FAA are investigating the message that was heard by multiple air traffic controllers in New York, according to CBS

The threat, delivered via a digitized voice, said: ‘We are flying into the Capitol Wednesday. Soleimani will be avenged.’

Congress plans to confirm Joe Biden’s win at the Capitol on Wednesday. 

The threat was made almost one year to the day after the death of Soleimani, who was killed in a U.S. drone strike ordered by President Donald Trump.

It is not yet clear who sent the message and the threat is not believed to credible, CBS reports, but the Pentagon and other agencies were briefed on Tuesday.

Brad Johnson: “We are at war with China in all ways except actual shooting”

This interview was recorded on December 16, 2020 but was just edited and published now. There is not a word that is outdated however.

Here is the segment CBC posted back when it was not fully the voice of the COMINTERN and had some interests in the existence of Canada as a polity separate from communist China. A small part of this I edited into the Brad Johnson interview.

Three authoritative articles on the massive attack on Western systems

1. From an excellent source:

2. The Strategic Implications of SolarWinds

(Article from left leaning site, but we are told, this is a good summation. Apparently, ONLY the Penatgon has not been hit.)

Recent reports of a widespread Russian cyber infiltration across U.S. government networks are a sign of how great power competition will play out in the 21st century. The new great power game is digital, with the shadowy alleys and cafes of Cold War spy games replaced by massive data breaches and compromising corporate security. Some strategies see this world as dominated by offensive operations—but the SolarWinds case suggests the opposite. The U.S. Cyber Solarium Commission, on which we served, found that the future of cybersecurity strategy will come to rely on layered cyber deterrence to enable defensive denial operations, international entanglement and cost imposition when aggressors defy the norms of the international system. The SolarWinds hack emphasizes the importance of implementing this strategy. 

It’s simpler to list the agencies that have not been caught up in the SolarWinds infiltration, which was run by Russian hacking group APT29 under the umbrella of the Russian intelligence services, the SVR. So far, only the intelligence community has not been reported to have been breached. 

3. Advanced Persistent Threat Compromise of Government Agencies, Critical Infrastructure, and Private Sector Organizations

Summary

This Alert uses the MITRE Adversarial Tactics, Techniques, and Common Knowledge (ATT&CK®) version 8 framework. See the ATT&CK for Enterprise version 8 for all referenced threat actor tactics and techniques.

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) is aware of compromises of U.S. government agencies, critical infrastructure entities, and private sector organizations by an advanced persistent threat (APT) actor beginning in at least March 2020. This APT actor has demonstrated patience, operational security, and complex tradecraft in these intrusions. CISA expects that removing this threat actor from compromised environments will be highly complex and challenging for organizations.

One of the initial access vectors for this activity is a supply chain compromise of the following SolarWinds Orion products (see Appendix A).

  • Orion Platform 2019.4 HF5, version 2019.4.5200.9083
  • Orion Platform 2020.2 RC1, version 2020.2.100.12219
  • Orion Platform 2020.2 RC2, version 2020.2.5200.12394
  • Orion Platform 2020.2, 2020.2 HF1, version 2020.2.5300.12432

Note (updated December 19, 2020): CISA has evidence that there are initial access vectors other than the SolarWinds Orion platform. Specifically, we are investigating incidents in which activity indicating abuse of SAML tokens consistent with this adversary’s behavior is present, yet where impacted SolarWinds instances have not been identified. CISA is working to confirm initial access vectors and identify any changes to the TTPs. CISA will update this Alert as new information becomes available.

Thank you ML for these materials. 

A few items on the Azerbaijan/Turkish war on Armenia

1. Azerbaijan now attacking the capital city of Armenia

2. Azerbaijan using cluster munitions:

3. This video published by Turkey’s Haberturk was reportedly of an Armenian UAV being shot down by Azerbaijani air defenses. Instead, it is clearly an An-2 aircraft, presumably belonging to Azerbaijan. Was this an Azerbaijani friendly fire incident? 472/

4. Turkish marshal propaganda music video

(Lots of invocations of allah. C. explains to us that the Turkish term, “Mehmetçik” in the video is equivalent to the slang term, “Doughboy” or infantryman who fights in tough conditions.)

5. An Azerbaijani music video which seems more Western hard rock than Islamic or Eastern Europe.

(Personally I prefer the Eastern European video, Remove the Kabab. The original version was removed from YT because it was used by the NZ Mosque killer. But YT still has Helter Skelter up which was used by the Manson gang for some pretty vicious and brutal killings. Arguably the song itself was the inspiration for them if Manson is to be believed)

Thank you C., X.

Armenia Vs. Azerbaijan

This is a series of items sent in by X. and Xanthippa and others. I may add a repost to a Brad JOhnson analysis of the situation from a week or so ago. Hopefully we can do an update on this situation today.

Armenia Declares Martial Law and General Mobilization

By the decision of the Armenian government, martial law and general mobilization are declared in the Republic of Armenia. Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan wrote about this on his Facebook page.

“The decision comes into effect upon publication. I call on the personnel attached to the troops to report to their regional military commissariats.

“For the sake of the homeland, for the sake of victory,” Nikol Pashinyan wrote.

Unusual Features of the SARS-CoV-2 Genome Suggesting Sophisticated Laboratory Modification Rather Than Natural Evolution and Delineation of Its Probable Synthetic Route

The COVID-19 pandemic caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 has led to over 910,000 deaths worldwide and unprecedented decimation of the global economy. Despite its tremendous impact, the origin of SARS-CoV-2 has remained mysterious and controversial. The natural origin theory, although widely accepted, lacks substantial support. The alternative theory that the virus may have come from a research laboratory is, however, strictly censored on peer-reviewed scientific journals. Nonetheless, SARS-CoV-2 shows biological characteristics that are inconsistent with a naturally occurring, zoonotic virus.

What does Chinese unrestricted warfare look like in Canada? (Correction: UK)

Daily Mail has the story here as well.

Horticulturalists have issued a warning after ‘hundreds’ of British gardeners received unsolicited deliveries of seeds thought to have been sent from China.

The mysterious packages have been posted to customers who previously made legitimate seed purchases through sites such as Amazon marketplace and eBay.

But many of the gardeners were left baffled after receiving unexpected deliveries – which were not paid for – marked as ‘petals’ and ‘ear studs’, potentially to avoid customs checks.

Thank you ML., PePi.
