Four of the executed were Shia dissidents, the rest were alleged al Qaeda terrorists apparently too extreme to graduate from the Saudi re-education centres and be redeployed abroad in the service of the Kingdom.
Given that four of the executed were Shia and it has been reported that forty three of the executed were beheaded while four were shot by firing squad, it seems logical to tentatively conclude that the four Shia dissidents including prominent cleric Sheikh Nimr al Nimr were shot whilst the al Qaeda men were beheaded.
The body of Sheikh Nimr was buried secretly, his family were not permitted even to bury him.
Sheikh Nimr Baqir al Nimr.
Sheikh Nimr al Nimr was a popular Shia cleric born in al-Awamiyah, an impoverished small Shia town in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia in 1959.
Sheikh Nimr lived and studied in Iran and Syria between 1979 and 1994, attaining the title Ayatollah , a title now held by only 49 living Shia clerics but a title far short of Grand Ayatollah which is the highest possible attainment for a living Shia cleric. In 1994 Sheikh Nimr returned to his Eastern Province hometown al Awamiyah.
Sheikh Nimr became the most prominent and outspoken internal Shia critic of the House of Saud, the clan who rule the Saudi nation as an absolute monarchy.
A Decade of Oppression.
Sheikh Nimr was first arrested in 2003 , reportedly for the heinous “crime” of leading prayers in his home village. He was arrested again in 2004 and 2006 and by this time Sheikh Nimr had reached the attention of the national secret police organisation the Mabahith.
After his 2006 arrest Sheikh Nimr was beaten but released after the people of his home village protested at his detention.
Undeterred by these oppressions Sheikh Nimr first achieved international prominence in 2007 when he released “A Petition of Honour and Dignity” his call for the reform of Saudi Arabia. The document called for ” freedom of belief for the Shia, who are considered heretics in Saudi Arabia” along with “liberty for Shias in the justice system and in education, including schools for girls, as well as the establishment of local government committees, and access for Shias to selection for higher status jobs.” (Source)
The petition was handed to the Governor of Eastern Province.
In 2009 a dispute erupted in Medina after the Saudi Religious police were seen video recording female Shia worshippers as they attended the graves of revered Shia figures in Medina. The upshot of which was an escalation in the scale of the oppression of the Saudi Shia minority.
These events led to a significant escalation in rhetoric from Sheikh Nimr, for the first time he raised the prospect of the secession of the Shia areas of Saudi Arabia, stating:
“Our dignity has been pawned away, and if it is not … restored, we will call for secession,” and “Our dignity is more precious than the unity of this land.”(Source)
Most of the Saudi oil industry that represents the nations entire economy almost is located in the Shia Eastern areas so these are very sensitive and unhappy subjects for the ruling Saudi clan.
This led to an arrest order being made for Sheikh Nimr and attempts to arrest family members, Nimr went into hiding until the storm apparently passed.
the Arab Spring begins.
Five years later the origins of the Arab Spring remain controversial and mysterious. My understanding is that the Arab Spring was a CIA project that sought to leverage the genuine sense of grievance within the Middle East in order to install Muslim Brotherhood governments across the region following the classic colour revolution model.
The participants on the ground were overwhelmingly unaware of these machinations and the protests were largely sincere in basis.
According to the leader of the Lebanese Shia militia Hezbollah Hassan Nasrallah in his speech condemning the execution of Sheikh Nimr, elements of US intelligence contacted Sheikh Nimr and offered to supply weapons to the Saudi Shia, an offer that Sheikh Nimr refused.
It seems likely therefore that someone was reaching out to political activists in the Gulf in the 2010-2011 time frame and encouraging them to ignite protest movements.
January 2011- Protests Begin in Saudi Arabia.
The narrative of the Arab Spring in Saudi Arabia bears a remarkable similarity to the narrative we were given in Tunisia, where the Arab Spring protests began and where the first Government fell as a result.
Political demonstrations are illegal in the Saudi Kingdom, an openly despotic state with no compunction whatsoever about conducting human rights abuses so every protest is a genuine act of bravery.
The protests in Saudi Arabia had multiple motivating issues and took place across the nation, with the Shia Eastern protests only one of several major streams of protest along with woman’s rights, and broader calls for reform and freedom.
Sheikh Nimr Speeches.
Several of Shiekh Nimr’s Arab Spring era speeches are on YouTube, the English translation provided by the MEMRI.
Judging by these samples Sheikh Nimr was an entertaining speaker, a lively and jovial figure, the antithesis of the fire breathing extremist of Hollywood Zionist fantasy.
The element of his speeches that the Saudi ruling clan found most unacceptable was probably his mockery of the Saudi state, the most amusing moment from his speech was the point at which he suggested the Saudi state should turn their “Iron Fist” against the “head of the snake”-Iran before concluding that if they ever tried to do so the Iron fist would be revealed to be a “cardboard fist.”
Saudi Ayatollah Shiekh Nimr Al-Nimr Dares Saudi Regime
The Crown Prince Nayyef Speech of July 2012.
In June 2012 Saudi Crown Prince Nayyef bin Abdulaziz al-Saud died. At the time of his death Nayyaf was Interior Minister, a post that he had held since 1975. Prince Nayyef’s offices had engaged in many human rights abuses during that time winning him many enemies.
In what in retrospect seems an act of foolishness in that it helped his enemies by surrendering some of the moral high ground, Sheikh Nimr made no secret of his delight at Prince Nayyef’s demise and in the same month Nimr was arrested for the last time.
That does not justify Sheikh Nimr’s arrest or execution for a second and it must be remembered that Sheikh Nimr never said that anyone should be attacked or killed, not the House of Saud nor anyone else and therefore he undoubtedly deserves to be regarded as a martyr to tyranny and evil as personified by the House of Saud.
The Prince Nayyaf speech of July 2012.
Saudi Cleric Nimr Al Nimr – Speech on the angel of death and Prince Nayyef
The Saudi authorities story regarding the arrest is so ridiculous it does not even bear repeating. Sheikh Nimr was driven off the road, his car was forced into a wall by the Saudi security forces and after that they shot him several times in the leg and tried to claim that men associated with Sheikh Nimr fired upon them. It was an unfunny joke.
Sheikh Nimr’s family were allowed to see him after a week, they reported that he was bruised and had broken teeth, the Saudis having apparently seen fit to torture him despite his serious wounds.
Sheikh Nimr was sentenced to death in late 2014, fundamentally for questioning the legitimacy of the House of Saud to rule the nation that bears their name.
During the course of the court proceedings against him Sheikh Nimr was given an opportunity to save himself by recanting his views. He said:
“If injustice stops against Shiites in the east, then (at that point) I can have a different opinion, according to his brother, who attended court sessions and spoke to The Associated Press just days before the Oct. 2014 verdict.”
That was not the right answer and in October 2014 the sentence of death was pronounced.
Sheikh Nimr appealed against the death sentence imposed upon him to no avail.
The head of Iran’s military warned the House of Saud would “pay dearly” if they carried out the sentence.
In the year 2015 the long running Saudi-Iran rivalry intensified across the board. The Nuclear deal and partial rapprochement between Iran and the West was a terrible blow to Saudi Arabia who had been urging a Western military attack on Iran for many years.
In March 2015 Saudi Arabia and their Gulf allies began attacking Yemen in a bid to restore their man President Hadi to power after Houthi rebel groups overran much of Yemen and Hadi fled to Saudi Arabia. After nine months and thousands of air strikes and civilian deaths, the Saudi coalition have made almost no progress and numerous Saudi military facilities have been subjected to cross border raids by Houthi fighters.
The decision to attack Yemen was an act of supreme foolishness as Yemen is historically the Afghanistan of the Arab world, no-one ever wins a war there, ever, and far more capable parties than the Saudis have tried and failed to do so. The Egyptian Military fought in Yemen for a decade from the early 1960s onward and achieved nothing but losses and exhaustion. Egypt deployed more than 50,000 soldiers in Yemen at the height of the operation.
Whereas in Yemen Saudi Arabia is the head of the gang in Syria they are just one of many members of a large gang that includes the US, France and Britain along with the anti-Iran regional alliance.
The coalition Saudi Arabia represents have been stunned and enraged by the Russian entrance into the Syrian war which in a single stroke ended all hope for the violent overthrow of the Syrian state.
Things are not going well for the House of Saud and there are signs of internal power struggles within the ruling clan and the decision to execute Sheikh Nimr appears to have been borne of rage and frustration and also an attempt to ignite Sunni Shia sectarian tensions.
One of the few cards left to play for the politically bankrupt House of Saud. The killing of Sheikh Nimr at the start of 2016 was little more than the foot stamping of a petulant child who cannot get it’s way.
More than a week after the execution the anti Saudi protests continue from Bahrain to Germany ,India and Pakistan to London. The peaceful protests were overshadowed somewhat by the sacking of the Saudi Tehran Embassy and the Mashad consulate.
Iran backlash: Saudi embassy stormed over execution of cleric Nimr al-Nim
No-one was harmed but the Iranian authorities should have prevented these actions which only served to enable the Saudis to play the victim and obscure their evil execution of Sheikh Nimr.
Saudi Arabia and several Gulf states and other Saudi lackeys cut diplomatic ties with Iran in response.
In Iraq the new Saudi embassy was struck with rocket fire, (the building was empty, the embassy was yet to be opened.) Elsewhere there were outpourings of rage, against the execution of Sheikh Nimr and the poisonous Wahhabist ideology in general.

Sunni and Shia- Who are the Sectarians?
The relative merits of any of the various streams of Islam are beyond the purview of this site. As a non-Muslim it would be absolutely ridiculous to try to judge the authenticity of different schools of the faith. The fact is that there are more than a billion Sunni Muslims, hundreds of millions of Shia Muslims and there has long been a very obvious divide and conquer plot to set these sects against one another.
Some basic human principles can be applied to understanding this situation. There should never be political conflict based upon religious identity of any kind.
Even overtly negative religious practices such as those of some dark occultists should be protected because religious freedom should be absolute.
No sect or group should be above the law should they engage in criminal conduct but no system of belief should be criminalised no matter how reprehensible it seems and no system of belief should ever be forced upon people no matter how supposedly positive.
Wahhabism, the school of Sunni Islam that functions as the state religion, transgresses upon these boundaries. Wahhabists regard Shia Muslims as heretics, and within the Wahhabist strain of Islam are those who openly advocate their killing.
Author and scholar David Livingstone asserts that Wahhabism and the related Salafi schools were the concoctions of the Western elite designed to demonise and destroy genuine traditional Islam.
There seems to be a great deal of merit in this hypothesis but the unfortunate truth appears to be that the Wahabist doctrine is entrenched in the culture of the Gulf States at this point in time and as emotionally satisfying as the “Death to the House of Saud” chants may be it is very hard to see the successors to the despicable ruling monarchs being an improvement.
The most likely successor in the near future would be the “puppet maniacs” of al Qaeda and/or Daesh, the revolutionary collapse of the Gulf monarchies would likely be a disaster in the current political climate and yet serious reform is hard to imagine and history indicates that absolute monarchies are doomed to reform or be violently destroyed.
The Foreign Minister Adel Jubeir is the first person outside the House of Saud to become a Saudi minister, which could be seen as a small positive step back from absolute monarchy but given that Adel al Jubeir is every bit as evil and low as any members of the Royal Family, possibly more so, it is hard to see that anything has improved and there is little prospect of reform in the nation known as Saudi Arabia (like calling Britain Windsor Britain) or the other despotic Gulf monarchies and the best thing for the world would be the switch to alternative energy sources and the end of the oil industry in it’s current form.
Saudi Arabia is at war with Iran whether the Iranians realise this or not. The engineered Haj disaster and the despicable Saudi response made this all too clear.
The Iranians were naive to imagine that the Saudi have an ounce of honour, they have none and until the House of Saud falls or the leadership changes no Iranian officials of any importance should be allowed to travel to Saudi Arabia, Hajj or no Hajj lest the criminal Riyadh regime repeat their evil antics of last year.
Saudi Arabia will never be able to initiate a shooting war with Iran and the same is true for Iran. There is no possibility of any type of war between Iran and Saudi Arabia in the near or even mid-term future because for the Saudis part, their ineffectual and corrupt military would be turned to dust if they ever raised a hand against Iran and for the Iranians part any attack on Saudi Arabia would be an act of suicidal insanity as it would provoke a military response from the United States who cannot possibly sit by and allow the site of many of their most important Middle East bases to be attacked.
The leadership of Iran are not suicidal maniacs, Iran has no interest in any type of armed confrontation with the United States, hence their decision to make the Nuclear deal.
Therefore the proxy wars will drag on, the people of Yemen and Syria will continue to suffer but there is no realistic prospect of an Iran-Saudi Arabia war in the conventional sense.
As for Sheikh Nimr, he set a good example to political dissidents everywhere, he conducted himself with honour and dignity and he will be remembered with reverence long after the low and venal Saudi clan are gone and forgotten.

Fresh Tianjin blast two months after mega-blast killed 173 in the city.
Two months after the Tianjin Port was struck by a small nuclear weapon that killed at least 173 people, another Tianjin warehouse has exploded.
The incident took place late on Monday night or in the early hours of Tuesday morning. There are no reports of casualties.
Counting from the explosion in Shandong on July 17th, exactly a year after the MH17 false flag terror attack there have been six highly suspicious industrial incidents in China in less than three months.
In addition there were the spate of mystery explosions in Guangxi last week.
The lack of information on the latest Tianjin explosion is most frustrating and it is regretted that a fuller account is not available at this time.
According to some reports the new blast took place in the “Beichen #北辰, which is much close to the city centre” and the only other detail I was able to find was at RT where it is stated that:
“The blaze was caused by an alcohol spill, according to People’s Daily China.”
Visiting the China Peoples Daily I could find no reference to the story and an in-site search on Tianjin fire produced only results related to the August event.
They are quite literally the only specific details about this I could find on the internet at this time.

Another Factory Explosion In China Sparks Large Fire, No Casualties Reported
The Astonishing Revelations of Wayne Madsen on the Mystery Explosions in China and Japan.
Wayne Madsen, a highly credible source has provided a coherent and plausible account of the series of mysterious explosions that have struck both China and Japan in recent months along with others others that I was unaware of, such as the explosion in recent months in Los Angeles on August 21st..
Much of Wayne Madsen’s work is posted beyond the paywall at Wayne Madsen Report at places such as Intrepid Report, but the pieces on the recent events in China and Japan appear not to have made it and as a result did not have the impact they deserved.
This is simply a retelling of what Madsen has written in a series of articles on this subject.
August 21-23, 2015 — Tianjin explosion appears to be state-sponsored industrial sabotage – Wayne Madsen Report
August 25-26, 2015 — Chinese asymmetric warfare: sabotage operations at forefront of strategy – Wayne Madsen Report
September 8-10, 2015 — China: plant explosion number four – Wayne Madsen Report
October 1-2, 2015 — Explosions in China are no longer reported as “accidents” but as sabotage – Wayne Madsen Report.
It is not possible to confirm this account of events but I have checked Madsen’s narrative and it fits with the known facts.
With these type of stories the way I tend to regard it is This may not necessarily be entirely correct but it is an opinion held by well informed sources within intelligence agencies and represents at the very least a step towards understanding what is happening.
This is a quick summary of the conclusions Madsen makes.
The simplest and most easily supportable conclusions are:
The Explosions that have taken place in China in recent months were due to sabotage.
The Tianjin blast was caused by a Nuclear device.
These can be regarded as confirmed.
Beyond that Madsen informs us that there is a secret war going on between China and Japan. Japanese angst caused by China’s island building “facts on the reef” campaign in the South China Sea, where China has been building islands from submerged reefs as part of their campaign to impose their desired maritime boundaries in the region has provoked the Tianjin attack and those that followed, Madsen writes:
August 21-23, 2015 — Tianjin explosion appears to be state-sponsored industrial sabotage – Wayne Madsen Report
““There is speculation in China that resurgent Japanese militarists loyal to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and with the support of the U.S. Pacific Command in Hawaii carried out the bombing as a message to China over Beijing’s military moves in the South China and East China Seas. “
Because the Japanese military have been forbidden from building offensive capabilities by the Japanese constitution imposed after World War 2, nationalist Japanese politicians such as Shinzo Abe used cut-outs to conduct offensive operations and build offensive capabilities.
August 25-26, 2015 — Chinese asymmetric warfare: sabotage operations at forefront of strategy – Wayne Madsen Report
“Abe, according to WMR’s sources in Japan, has old links to the fascist terrorist group Aum Shinrikyo, which attacked the Tokyo subway system with deadly Sarin gas in 1995. In 2000, Aum Shinrikyo changed its name to Aleph and, although it has been accused of being anti-Semitic, oddly chose the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet as its new name. Aleph and its cult members, many of whom are Gladio-like operatives for the Japanese intelligence agency Naicho, is believed to ultimately answer to Abe. Though branded a terrorist group, Aleph is in a unique position to commit acts of sabotage in China without exposing the fingerprints of Abe or the Japanese government.”
in the early 1990s the Aum Shinrikyo cult purchased a large remote property in Western Australia the Banjawarn Station, on May 28th, 1993 it appears the group detonated a nuclear weapon on the half a million acre property, whether the detonation was the result of a test or an accident is unclear.
September 8-10, 2015 — China: plant explosion number four – Wayne Madsen Report
In 1994, Australian police discovered that Aum had been conducting experiments on nuclear weapons at a remote sheep station in Banjawarn in Western Australia. Police discovered in an abandoned farm house rudimentary equipment that could be used to produce a nuclear weapon: computers, tubing, a rock-crushing machine, and generators. There were known uranium deposits in the area of the Banjawarn station. Moreover, Aum recruited some nuclear engineers from the former Soviet Union to help them develop a nuclear weapon. A number of dead sheep were also discovered at the ranch station.“
“In 1993, seismic monitors picked up at Banjawarn an explosion greater in strength than the most powerful British atomic bomb test carried out at the Woomera Test Range in South Australia in the 1950s and early 60s. Australian truckers reported seeking a huge fireball in the direction of Banjawarn and hearing a loud sound.”
All of the details of this incredible sounding tale stand up to scrutiny, to the point where the matter was reported upon in the New York Times and discussed in the Western Australian Parliament.
The Aum Shinrikyo were an international group, their leadership was in Japan but the largest membership was based in Russia. It is claimed that the Aum Shinrikyo sought information about nuclear weapons from Russian members with connections to the Russian nuclear weapons industry.
In the years after the Tokyo Sarin attack, the Aum Shinrikyo came under intense pressure.
In the year 2000 the Aum Shinrikyo group split between a group who morphed into a Scientology type non- violent cult whilst the remaining doomsday adherents formed a group called Aleph. Aleph is also the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet.
I have searched for information on this group but very little detail is available beyond confirmation of the basic fact that they exist, they have sued for libel successfully and little more.
None of the above sources are particularly illuminating but they are all that appears to be available.
North Korea and the Chinese snub.
One very interesting thing that Madsen noticed that everyone else seems to have missed is that North Korea was severely snubbed in the Chinese celebrations of the 70th anniversary of the end of the Second World War.
Whilst the distant leader Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe was welcomed, the Chinese only invited the Foreign Minister of North Korea Kim Jong un the “Supreme Leader” and third generation of the Kim dynasty was not invited.
One of the really interesting things about Kim Jong un is that his Godfather is an extremely notorious Chinese Secret Police Chiefn named Zhou Yongkang who is part of the faction that is currently being purged by the Xi faction.
So an extremely complex picture seems to emerge of a multi-layered factional war inside China, Japan and the US with elements in Japan China and North Korea in a dark and covert alliance against the current ruling faction in China who appear themselves to be capable of high deception and ruthless violence.
According to Wayne Madsen all of the explosions at the Chinese industrial sites were acts of espionage that he alleges are connected to the Aleph group or similar rogue Japanese elements who function he claims as an arm of the Japanese deep state similar to the Gladio groups in Europe in the distant and recent past.
Madsen claims that the Tianjin blast was caused by a nuclear weapon in a shipping container and that the Lijin blast, both the blasts in Shandong, in August and the explosion in Dongying in September were all caused by acts of sabotage and that the Chinese are completely aware they are under attack.
In addition to those astonishing claims Madsen claims that it appears two at least two incidents were part of a Chinese response to the acts of sabotage against them.
The Los Angeles Explosion of August 21st, 2015.
On August 21st, a generator exploded in Los Angeles causing power outages in an area choked with key US data infrastructure. Four people were injured in the little reported incident.
“At least one data center has experienced disruptions following an explosion in a basement of a high-rise in downtown Los Angeles Thursday evening.
While the cause of the explosion is still being investigated, the Los Angeles Fire Department suspects it had something to do with a generator in the basement. The blast at 811 West Wilshire Blvd. took out an on-site power station, leaving 12 buildings in the area without electricity, according to the local utility.
The explosion interrupted connectivity on network infrastructure operated by Level 3 Communications, which serves a lot of data center users in the area, Craig VerColen, a spokesman for LogMeIn, a company whose data center went dark as a result of the incident, said via email. Level 3 issued a statement saying its technicians were working to restore services.

Madsen also tentatively attributes the explosion at the US Military depot in Japan to Chinese elements who apparently blame elements of both the US and Japan for the incidents of sabotage and suggests that the explosion at the Japanese aluminium factory may also have been the result of the same type of action.

The Spate of Liucheng Explosions.
China Hit by Wave of Mystery Blasts.
Madsen attributes the dozens of explosions in Liuecheng Southern China to a different but related source.
Madsen claims that US intelligence agencies have co-opted Chinese Muslim Uigars and are inserting them into southern China in order to conduct acts of sabotage and the spate of explosions last week are attributed to these proxy militants.
October 1-2, 2015 — Explosions in China are no longer reported as “accidents” but as sabotage – Wayne Madsen Report.
“There are reports that some of the 3500 Chinese Uighurs now fighting in Syria under the umbrella of the Turkestan Islamic Party and claiming Idlib as their home base under Turkish protection are returning to China via the porous southern borders of Guangxi and Yunnan to carry out sabotage against Chinese targets. “
It cannot be stated with confidence that the narrative presented by Wayne Madsen is completely correct but it appears to be a coherent narrative. It makes sense and fits with the known facts and at the very least is worth bearing in mind the next time news breaks of the inevitable next unexplained explosion in North Asia.
The Fires in Tianjin will presumably burn for months
The death toll from the Tianjin blasts stands at 114, with another 80 missing and presumed dead. The truth is that given the condition that the site is still in I would suggest that the death toll is in all likelihood far higher.
There were two major explosions in the Port of Tianjin on August 12th, one has been estimated as being the equivalent of three tonnes of TNT, the other the equivalent of 21 tonnes of TNT. They are described as having caused seismic readings of 2.3 and 2.9.
There has been no information offered whatsoever by the Chinese Government as to the specific cause of the blast and the popular conspiracy theories on this one seem to have missed the mark other than in their assertion that this was no mere industrial accident.
The scene of what is left of the area looks like Hiroshima, Nagasaki or Manhattan after 911, only more so. The devastation is far more intense. It looks like a war has been fought in the Tianjin Port, a devastating and prolonged war.
A Nuclear Event?
There are so many signs that a nuclear event has taken place that some type of nuclear event remains the best explanation until a better alternative is provided. This does not mean that there was necessarily an attack, simply that the explosion is the result of some type of nuclear incident.
The persistent fires, small fresh explosions days later, the blast damage, the scale of the crater, the fact that Chinese Government investigators are wearing full NBC protection suits at all times and the Nuclear weapons specialists the Chinese have sent to the scene are all signs that a nuclear event took place in Tianjin on August 12th.
“The big clue is in the ash produced and the exploding radiators on the cars. They show the radiation and the blast patterns the best. All melted rubber, glass, and aluminium but no melted steel? This tells you it is from radiation and not from a gasoline fire. Temps between 1500 degrees C for melting aluminium and less than 3,000 degrees C for melting steel. Everything organic ashes below 450 degrees C.
This had a plasma fireball that was over 4,000C! Only a nuke can do that. The clue is in the white ash leftover from the thermal blast.”
One of the striking things about Nuclear weapons is the intense blast of light that they create. It is quite unique and could be observed very clearly in the aftermath of the Israeli Nuclear attack against Syria of May 2013.There was a very striking bright light produced from the second Tianjin blast, and watching the videos I was going through the whiteout section frame by frame, counting the frames. There seemed to be a very long whiteout although the light was not quite as intense as the May 2013 Syria proven nuclear event. I was able to count over thirty separate frames of white light in the videos taken at a distance of several kilometres from the blast. The closer to the blast the earlier the camera person would be knocked off shot by the blast wave.
“look at the white out in the centre of the photo. This is where the brightness is so great that it overloads the ccd pickup chip causing a clipping effect. The fact that the fireball was whited out or clipped indicates that the colour temperature was over 4,000 degrees C. Only achievable in a nuclear blast. The cameras auto gain circuit clips the video level for being too bright so you get a white out on the screen.”
The Before and After Problem.
One strange detail is the fact that there does not appear to have been a warehouse at the blast epicenter.
The presenter of the satellite imagery on Chinese state CCTV openly states that the centre of the blast was in a car park. The before and after satellite images are completely lacking in any large warehouse or building at the centre of the blast site. We see a fairly good set of before and after photos and there is no doubt about the fact that there seem to be several large warehouses towards the edge of the blast but there was no warehouse at or near the epicenter.
How does that work?
Satellite images show destruction in Tianjin blasts’ core area
Surely the source and epicenter should be in the same place?
Perhaps there were goods stored underground. That appears the only possibility because it has happened, the devastation emanates from a car park and that is not a viable source for a 21 tonne, 2.9 on the Richter scale blast.
The story that got a lot of traction was that the US attacked the Tianjin Port with the “Rod of God” or Project Thor “kinetic bombardment” weapon.
The idea behind Project Thor is that you simply drop a steel pole from space and by the time the object strikes the target it will be travelling at extreme speed (Mach 10 is quoted hypothetically) and will cause massive devastation due to its velocity without any bomb having to be used. This is the “rod of god” as far as we know which is very little.
“6 m. Tungsten rods launched from near Earth orbit, invisible to radar, could strike anywhere on earth, impact speed of Mach 10, impact equal to a tactical nuclear bomb but with no explosives.”
If the Tianjin explosions had been caused by steel objects traveling at high-speed it is extremely likely that these rods would have been visible and-or audible, and given that the Tianjin blasts were filmed by many cameras these objects should have surely been seen or heard in the video recordings of the event. But they weren’t.
Having never witnessed this system in action this is pretty speculative obviously but an object entering the earth’s atmosphere traveling at Mach 10 will make a tremendous sound and I don’t see any way around that.
The same applies for the hypothesis of a cruise missile strike. Videos of cruise missile strikes on Baghdad are available on Youtube, they make a loud whistling or hissing sound that can be heard prior to impact.
The Lack of an Electro- Magnetic Pulse.
Some have pointed to the lack of an atmospheric ElectroMagnetic Pulse (EMP) in Tianjin is evidence that something other than a nuclear detonation has taken place.
“The way you generate an EMP (or any interesting electromagnetic effect) is you get a bunch of charge and suddenly move it. A nuclear weapon on its own doesn’t have a bunch of extra charges to move around, but luckily (unluckily?) the Earth abides! Between about 40 and 300 miles above your head (about 39 and 299 miles for our Denver readers) there’s a layer of charged particles called the ionosphere. It’s created by radiation from space (mostly the Sun) knocking electrons free of their host atoms. A nuke releases enough heat, suddenly enough, that the resulting upward and outward “puff” of air literally moves the ionosphere overhead. That moving charge is what causes the bulk of the EMP. To a lesser extent, a nuclear device also ionizes the surrounding air, and then moves that.”
So the EMP effect is created by the interaction between a powerful explosion and the ionosphere and the same source Why do nuclear weapons cause EMPs (electromagnetic pulses)? appears to answer the question regarding the lack of EMP observed in Tianjin, and in New York City in 2001.The EMP effect is greatly reduced when the detonation takes place underground as the ground acts as a cushion between the device and the ionosphere.
If you think about a Port and what is special about a Port and about what might make a Port a target of an attack there are two standout possibilities.
A Port is an economic hub, the Tianjin blasts will have an impact on the Chinese Economy and the Chinese Government.So, if we accept that the incident was no accident, an economic attack on China is one possible motive.
The other special characteristic of a Port is that it is a transit point for all sorts of goods, so one other possibility that must be considered is that something being moved through the Port was targeted.
A nuclear device has been detonated, that seems fairly clear at this stage and no-one is even really denying it.
Another advantage of attacking the Tianjin Port lies in the masking effect, the plausible deniability achieved by the fact that a number of volatile chemicals were stored at the Port and standards of control measures employed at the Port were clearly inadequate as this had been the subject of previous public protests.
Either the Nuclear device was used as an act of sabotage and terror or Nuclear devices being moved through the Port were targeted by another party, an outside possibility that should not be dismissed.
China, the United States and the New World Order.
A Very Short History of Post Revolutionary China.
The Chinese Communist party seized power in 1949, the leader was the Yale connected Chairman Mao. The nation that Mao found himself the ruler was overwhelmingly rural and agrarian. The story of CCP rule in China has been more than anything else, a story of urbanisation and industrialisation.
The results have been mega-cities filled with urban immigrants working in slave labor conditions under leaden skies filled with industrial pollution. The mainstream mantra about the “”Chinese miracle” simply ignores the life that has been imposed upon China’s urban proletariat and the environment they are expected to inhabit.
The relationship between China and the United States has had some extremely interesting moments. The current two largest economies were official enemies until the early 1970’s. The Korean war represented the high point of the first phase of the relationship.
China presented the US with an extremely unpleasant surprise in Korea. The US and it’s allies had all but won the war, North Korea was facing total defeat and US forces were almost at the border with China when they were attacked by a massive force of infantry that managed to cut off the US Eighth Army who were largely surrounded by the Chinese forces.
“the U.S. Eighth Army’s retreat (the longest in US Army history) was made possible because of the Turkish Brigade’s successful, but very costly, rear-guard delaying action near Kunuri that slowed the PVA attack for two days (27–29 November). On 27 November at the Korean eastern front, a U.S. 7th Infantry Division Regimental Combat Team (3,000 soldiers) and the U.S. 1st Marine Division (12,000–15,000 marines) were unprepared for the PVA 9th Army Group’s three-pronged encirclement tactics at the Battle of Chosin Reservoir, but they managed to escape under Air Force and X Corps support fire—albeit with some 15,000 collective casualties.[194 “
The Eighth Army conducted a retreat that remains the longest ever retreat US forces have been involved in. In order to escape the Chinese encirclement the US soldiers abandoned their heavy weapons and much of their equipment and were reduced to the status of a disorganised rabble.
The territory of North Korea was thus reclaimed with the help of the Chinese forces who inflicted a terrible setback on the United States despite the US having total air superiority and better weapons and equipment in every respect.
A similar situation persisted until the 1970s when a grand deal appears to have been struck between China and the West to make China a key manufacturing centre as the West was de-industrialised.
How the West Re-colonized China
Between 1980 and the present day China seems to have operated as a Communist Party gangster state in key partnership with the oligarchs of Global Finance.
The transition was overseen by a group known as the Eight Elders, also sometimes called the Eight Immortals. The most well known figure among this group is Deng Xiaoping. The model of leadership that this group put in place was seized upon by further generations of the CCP leadership including a group known as the Shanghai clique.
A key figure appears in the Shanghai clique was Jiang Zamin, a known confidant of Henry Kissinger who amassed a tremendous amount of military and political power within the Chinese Communist party structure
“Jiang Zemin (born 17 August 1926) is a retired Chinese politician who served as General Secretary of the Communist Party of China from 1989 to 2002, as Chairman of the Central Military Commission from 1989 to 2004, and as President of the People’s Republic of China from 1993 to 2003. Jiang has been described as the “core of the third generation” of Communist Party leaders”
The Jiang faction appears to be engaged in a power-struggle with the current leadership that is active to the present day.
This faction, or series of factions appear to have ruled China throughout the industrial and urban transition. They were great friends with the Western elite who admired them due to their powers of coercion, the level of obedience they achieved and the ruthless measures they were willing to take against any who objected.
The China that came into existence over the past 35 or 40 years WAS the New World Order in all its dystopian glory.
But China was never just a factory, it was a place producing millions and millions of engineers, doctors and other technically qualified University graduates. The New World Order dystopia was always destined to brush up against the reality of a burgeoning middle class making increasing demands regarding environmental controls and other lifestyle elements, as well as greater political freedom and more access to power.
The Chinese Government seems split between “open” gangsters who want the party to go on forever and realists who believe that the party will be destroyed unless it can be more responsive and transparent.
They have been above the law for several decades. So as part of Xi Jinping and his faction asserting themselves, many of these former strongmen with close ties to the Western New World Order leadership have been marginalised and destroyed by what is probably an equally ruthless and unethical opponent of a more Nationalist bent.
Numerous assassination plots against Xi and key allies have been alleged. In September 2012 Xi Jinping’s vehicle was rammed deliberately by another vehicle and forced from the road. On the same day one of Xi’s key allies suffered an identical fate. Neither man was badly hurt.
One of the theories listed in the Daily Mails “conspiracy round up” on Tianjin was that it was plot against the life of President Xi Jinping. This rumour was probably started by the perpetrators, another intimidatory message as well as a smokescreen.
Bo Xilai and the death of Neil Heywood.
The very strange death of Heywood set off a chain of events that led to the complete political destruction of Bo Xilai, alleged to be a key ally of George Soros and the Western banking cartel families.
Wayne Madsen explains the significance of the Heywood, Bo Xilai nexus and their connections to British Intelligence and the Rothschild banking dynasty
“Heywood, fluent in Mandarin Chinese and the reported handler of Bo Guagua, Bo’s son, at the exclusive British Papplewich and Harrow boarding schools, as well as at Oxford University, was a consultant to Hakluyt & Company, Ltd., a secretive British private intelligence firm established in 1995 and linked to the Rothschilds. Chinese officials reported that Heywood died in his hotel room from severe alcohol poisoning, but his friends pointed out that he was a teetotaler.”
Bo Xilai;s wife .Gu Kailai, confessed to murdering Heywood several months after the death which had originally been attributed to alcohol poisoning.”
Alcohol poisoning was not a feasible choice for a cause of death as Heywood did not drink alcohol at all and an investigation was reopened and the matter exploded when Bo Xilai’s former police chief Wang Lijun fled to the US consulate and accused his former boss of corruption and involvement in the Heywood murder.
The US refused to let the apparent whistle-blower take refuge and he was force to leave after 24 hours and taken into custody by the Chinese Government who had him declared mentally unsound and committed to an institution. Wang Lijun was later sentenced to fifteen years prison.
One sign of Bo Xilai’s audacity was the fact that he intercepted and spied upon any and all phone traffic inside Chonqing, his sphere of influence. This included the interception of phone calls made by the then President Hu Jintao made during his time in the city.
Certain elements of the CCP have seemingly decided that Bo Xilai and his British Intelligence pal had to go. It seems that agents of the Chinese state “got to” Heywood but made a nasty error in their chosen cause of death.
So the crime was used to destroy the entire Bo Xilai network with his wife taking the blame for Heywood’s murder, presumably under coercion, Bo Xilai imprisoned and Heywood dead.
Logically it seems that part of the reason Tianjin happened was that multiple lines of succession that had been put in place in China by the Western oligarchs had just been destroyed or otherwise marginalised.
This is obviously just conjecture that attempts to find meaning in this deeply puzzling and troubling event.
The reliable old allies such as Jiang were being aggressively sidelined and arrested for corruption.
The contract the Bankers felt they had with the CCP was no longer to their mind being adhered to, so they made their feelings known in their customary manner, by conducting a false flag atrocity. This is the favored form of communication when other channels are not working, the “deep” message.
“The Cabal” refers to a claque of global-scale plutocratic manipulators who use their immense wealth, prestige and power to control governments and economies to perpetuate their stranglehold on global society.”
Before entering into speculation as to the identity of the perpetrators and the delivery method they used, it is worth contemplating how serious a situation this is for the perpetrators.
China has been attacked. China is going to know that it has been attacked and it is going to know that a Nuclear weapon has just been used in one of its cities.
This is an unprecedented event. A nuclear armed superpower has just seemingly been covertly attacked in a shadow war with an unnamed enemy using Nuclear weapons.
The comparisons with the damage caused to Manhattan and Tianjin are quite clear. But the situation here is completely different.
The Limits to 911 Comparisons.
When the Cabal conducted 911, they were offering a great deal to the US government. They were giving them a story, a national security story, a foreign policy story, a story where the US government played the good guys and no-one questioned the level of military spending and the new police state measures.
It was quite a friendly deal in many ways, probably reflecting the fact that the US Government was heavily penetrated by the Cabal and thus considered an “unruly ally” that needed to be put in line.
They are not really offering China anything at this point in terms of a narrative.Indeed there seems to be a concerted attempt to crash the Chinese stock market and possibly entire economy underway at the moment, in parallel with this attack.
This is a covert declaration of war against a Nuclear superpower. This is an act of insanity, utter insanity and can only rationally be seen as an attempt to promote general war between China and the United States or as part of an attempted coup in China.
The intent of the plotters is not known but there can be no doubt this is a most sinister plot with the potential to begin a far broader human catastrophe.
There have long been and continue to be parallel chains of command operating within the US state. The Official US chain of command has not done this and I severely doubt that the unofficial chain of command did it either, but once you get these parallel chains of command you never know what may happen.
The action does not fit the profile of either the CIA or the US military neither of whom are about to declare war on China. A cruise missile has a return address, as well as a distinctive sound that was not heard.
Until the beneath the surface reality of what was being stored at the site emerges, it is impossible to tell if there was something in the Tianjin Port that was specifically targeted. If this information becomes available a far more complete picture of the incident may emerge to illuminate the hidden facts behind this attack as the knowledge of the twelve dead Syrian scientists illuminated the April 2004 Ryongchon disaster.
All logic points to the device being placed at the site of the attack rather than fired from a projectile. This is the only delivery method that makes any sense as a cruise missile has a return address. Any external weapon has a return address.
If you imagine yourself in the perpetrators position and you are going to engage in a covert Nuclear attack on a target, The device will be placed at the attack site by an agent rather than any military delivery system because if you use a jet or a satellite to deliver the weapon to the site, it will be much harder to disguise what has happened and the identity of the perpetrators.
The fact that no object was filmed nor described nor heard impacting in Tianjin is not proof that there was no impact but it does place a massive question mark over any hypothesis that relies on this such as the rod of god and cruise missile hypotheses. If Tianjin was attacked by an aerial platform it was an invisible platform delivering an invisible weapon it seems.
This does not exclude the possibility that a laser based platform was used to detonate a secondary device in Tianjin.
This event has many of the signatures of the Western Dark elite, the Cabal or Bankers Empire.
‘If we are caught they will just replace us with persons of the same cloth. So it does not matter what you do, America is a golden calf and we will suck it dry, chop it up, and sell it off piece by piece until there is nothing left but the world’s biggest welfare state that we will create and control. Why? Because it is the will of God, and America is big enough to take the hit so we can do it again and again and again. This is what we do to countries that we hate. We destroy them very slowly and make them suffer for refusing to be our slaves.’
Alleged D.I.A recording of Benjamin Netanyahu, Finks Bar, 1990.
This is a shocking little speech but the really interesting thing here is the we. Who is “We” here?
It’s not Israel surely, Israel as a state does not hate the United States for obvious reasons. Few nations have done more for another state than the US has done for Israel in terms of financial and military support.
It’s not Israel, nor even the Likud party, it is certainly not Jewish people in general or anything or anyone that is associated with the Netanyahu public persona.
The “We “ Netanyahu refers to is the Western Financial Oligarchy or to put it bluntly, the Cabal.
When those former IDF members detonated weapons in New York City in 2001, this was who they were serving and this role has been played by a number of Western and Law Enforcement and Intelligence organs to a greater or lesser extent.
This has very little to do with the State of Israel or any other state. MI5 and MI6 have played the role, the FBI, CIA and even elements of the US military have played this role at various times along with the Mossad.
The crimes belong to the criminal overlords and the co-opted agencies but it would be incorrect to identify these operations with any nation.
All these groups were simply cut outs, they were being used, it could just as easily have been the Nigerian Security Services or the Australian, but the ability to get things done would not be achieved by that, hence the intense targeting of so many US agencies.
The US along with the British, French and the Israeli’s got priority for infiltration because of the power it conferred. That is how it seems to work.
The response to this incident from the Chinese Government is a matter of mystery. Some things can be assumed. The Chinese probably know that a Nuclear weapon has been detonated in one of their cities, and if they do not know this now, they soon will.
No matter what is said in public or how long it takes, they are not going to sit back and take this. This is not the Government of Syria or a small weak state that has been attacked. Bad things are going to happen on the back of this event whether it takes them ten or twenty years they will and they can extract revenge for this event.
Surely it is time to recognise the threat these sinister elements represent to the West and to human civilisation?
The best that can be hoped to come from this would be the destruction and imprisonment of the criminal cabal. If Western agencies help the Chinese Government identify the real perpetrators of this event the Chinese will understand that someone is trying to manipulate a major war and avoid this cataclysmic path.
The dismantlement of this group would have been the logical thing to do following 911, all things considered. The failure to act on previous atrocities has and will continue to leave the way open for these fiends to commit fresh evil such as the attack on Tianjin. How many more must die before people recognise the true nature of this group and what they represent?

This is one of the most stunning and chilling videos I have ever seen. Every element of this short video howls nuclear attack without a word on the subject being said. The scale of the evil here is very clear and there is a sense of the consciousness of it from the Chinese. Russia Today will often show but not voice difficult truths.
