Tianjin Aftermath.
The conjecture that “the fires at Tianjin will probably burn for months” proved to be incorrect.
The latest media reports of fires at the site were less than a month after the August 12th cataclysm that left 173 dead.

Blast Site Completely Cleared.

This week a video has emerged that shows the clean up of the site and it has made great advances. The site has been stripped of everything it seems, all objects and a huge amount of soil have been removed.. The earth is placed in sealed white bags, the debris is placed in black bags.
There are still tentative plans to turn the site into a park that will double as a monument to those lost.

Appetite for Destruction.

The US Defense Secretary recently stated that the US Navy were planning to sail in the region of the South China sea reefs China is building and claiming.
The entire Western suggestion that China has any interest or intention in closing the region to shipping is complete nonsense.
These shipping lanes are central to China’s economy, the idea of China closing the South China sea route is the typical trope that the shills of the Empire try to impose upon the public.
It is the way the project of World domination has been masked for decades..
Ashton Carter is emerging as just about the “best” US Defense Secretary since Rumsfeld as he has managed to threaten war with both China and Russia in recent weeks!

Russia will pay price for Syrian airstrikes, says US defence secretary The Guardian

Foreign Policy Diary – Confrontation in the South China Sea

Struggling to adjust to new realities.

The war party in the US is disconsolate over China’s actions in turning reefs into islands in the South China sea and Russians killing US backed terrorists in Syria.

This seems completely irrational but there is a reason

They do not care about the South China Sea but the Chinese moves signal the end of US domination of the Asia pacific region.

Likewise they do not really care that al Nusra Front jihadists they and their allies sponsored are being killed by Russia in Syria, it is the fact that this also signals the loss of US power in the Middle East that is so upsetting and that is why the current situation is so dangerous

China despite many rumours and credible reports to the contrary, does not seem to have joined the Russian operation in Syria although given the opaque nature of the way the Chinese Government operates this assessment may be proven incorrect in the near future.

It seems that the truth about Tianjin, the cause and the perpetrators may never emerge.
The same veil will probably hide any possible acts of retribution for the massacre.

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.

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:

  1. The Explosions that have taken place in China in recent months were due to sabotage.
  2. 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. “

Aum Shinrikyo.

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.

One of the cut outs they used were the Aum Shinrikyo cult notorious for the Tokyo subway Sarin gas attack of 1995.

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.

Explosion-Western Australian Outback 1993

Aleph.

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.

Conclusions.

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.

UPDATE: Explosion in Downtown Los Angeles Disrupts Data Center Operations | Data Center Knowledge

“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.

The US Military Depot Explosion in Japan.

Unexplained Explosion at US Military Base in Japan

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.

September 1st,  2015.

China’s  Shandong province suffered a third mysterious explosion in less than two months when a chemical plant was rocked by a massive blast on Monday night. The blast took place at a factory in Lijin. The blast follows major explosions in Shandong in mid- July and on August  22nd  along with the mammoth Tianjin event.of August 12th.

It is being reported that one person died in the blast and nine more were injured.

Chemical factory explodes in eastern China, killing 1 | Daily Mail Online

“The Dongying News website — run by the Dongying city government — said the factory in Lijin county in Shandong province exploded at 11:22 p.m. Monday and the fire was brought under control about five hours later”

The Factory was operated by Runxing Chemical company which is a subsidiary of Runxing Group an apparently small player witha quoted capitalisation of $200 million. .

The proliferation of explosions could be read either as a sign of corruption and inadequate safety standards or as sabotage. Looking back at the recent history of Shandong I noted that oil pipeline explosions are a common occurrence, along with industrial disasters of many varieties but these exploding chemical plants appear to be a recent phenomenon whatever the cause.

Shandong Province Petrochemical Plant Explosion Breaking News.

This story is fresh and there are a lack of details but it seems noteworthy that a massive explosion has taken place at a Petrochemical plant in China’s Shandong province.. Were it not for the Tianjin incidents and increasing tensions along the Korean ceasefire line this incident may have escaped attention.

Explosive incidents at petrochemical plants are quite commonplace. But Tianjin was no accident it seems and therefore this event appears in a most sinister light.

Second Plant Explodes in China

As this piece states explosions at Petrochemical plants are quite common and there had been an earlier incident at a Shandong Petrochenical plant that was confused with the incident that happened yesterday as people were uploading the old incident onto new Youtube videos yesterday so videos had the right date stamp, were taken in the right location and showed the right type of incident but it was a previous petroblast.

Many thanks to Dave for pointing this error out.
