What Frightened The USS Donald Cook So Much In The Black Sea?

U.S. Navy ship has ass handed to it by Russians; Obama criminals, JCS, NATO once again use USS Donald Cook and Navy personnel as bait for WIII

The State Department acknowledged that the crew of the destroyer USS Donald Cook has been gravely demoralized ever since their vessel was flown over in the Black Sea by a Russian Sukhoi-24 (Su-24) fighter jet which carried neither bombs nor missiles but only an electronic warfare device.


On 10 April 2014, the USS Donald Cook entered the waters of the Black Sea and on 12 April a Russian Su-24tactical bomber flew over the vessel triggering an incident that, according to several media reports, completely demoralized its crew, so much so that the Pentagon issued a protest [1].


The USS Donald Cook (DDG-75) is a 4th generation guided missile destroyer whose key weapons areTomahawk cruise missiles with a range of up to 2,500 kilometers, and capable of carrying nuclear explosives. This ship carries 56 Tomahawk missiles in standard mode, and 96 missiles in attack mode.

The US destroyer is equipped with the most recentAegis Combat System. It is an integrated naval weapons systems which can link together the missile defense systems of all vessels embedded within the same network, so as to ensure the detection, tracking and destruction of hundreds of targets at the same time. In addition, the USS Donald Cook is equipped with 4 large radars, whose power is comparable to that of several stations. For protection, it carries more than fifty anti-aircraft missiles of various types.

Meanwhile, the Russian Su-24 that buzzed the USS Donald Cook carried neither bombs nor missiles but only a basket mounted under the fuselage, which, according to the Russian newspaper Rossiyskaya Gazeta [2], contained a Russian electronic warfare device called Khibiny.

As the Russian jet approached the US vessel, the electronic device disabled all radars, control circuits, systems, information transmission, etc. on board the US destroyer. In other words, the all-powerful Aegis system, now hooked up - or about to be - with the defense systems installed on NATO’s most modern ships was shut down, as turning off the TV set with the remote control.

The Russian Su-24 then simulated a missile attack against the USS Donald Cook, which was left literally deaf and blind. As if carrying out a training exercise, the Russian aircraft - unarmed - repeated the same maneuver 12 times before flying away.

After that, the 4th generation destroyer immediately set sail towards a port in Romania.

Since that incident, which the Atlanticist media have carefully covered up despite the widespread reactions sparked among defense industry experts, no US ship has ever approached Russian territorial waters again.

According to some specialized media, 27 sailors from the USS Donald Cook requested to be relieved from active service.

Vladimir Balybine - director of the research center on electronic warfare and the evaluation of so-called "visibility reduction" techniques attached to the Russian Air Force Academy - made the following comment:

"The more a radio-electronic system is complex, the easier it is to disable it through the use of electronic warfare."

War Veteran Tomas Young’s Last Letter : A Message to George W. Bush And Dick Cheney

Bush & Co. believe that they have escaped war crimes trials - they are wrong and will eventually be prosecuted for war crimes and mass-murder of our military personnel and civilians caught up in their illegal, immoral, bogus wars on "terror"  

GLOBAL RESEARCH
11/12/2014

Tomas Young passed away one day before Veterans Day. His important message first published in March 2013 will not be forgotten by those committed to Peace and Justice

I write this letter, my last letter, to you, Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney. I write not because I think you grasp the terrible human and moral consequences of your lies, manipulation and thirst for wealth and power.


Tomas Young
I write this letter because, before my own death, I want to make it clear that I, and hundreds of thousands of my fellow veterans, along with millions of my fellow citizens, along with hundreds of millions more in Iraq and the Middle East, know fully who you are and what you have done.

You may evade justice but in our eyes you are each guilty of egregious war crimes, of plunder and, finally, of murder, including the murder of thousands of young Americans—my fellow veterans—whose future you stole. 


I write this letter on the 10th anniversary of the Iraq War on behalf of my fellow Iraq War veterans. I write this letter on behalf of the 4,488 soldiers and Marines who died in Iraq. I write this letter on behalf of the hundreds of thousands of veterans who have been wounded and on behalf of those whose wounds, physical and psychological, have destroyed their lives. I am one of those gravely wounded. I was paralyzed in an insurgent ambush in 2004 in Sadr City. My life is coming to an end. I am living under hospice care.




I write this letter on behalf of husbands and wives who have lost spouses, on behalf of children who have lost a parent, on behalf of the fathers and mothers who have lost sons and daughters and on behalf of those who care for the many thousands of my fellow veterans who have brain injuries. I write this letter on behalf of those veterans whose trauma and self-revulsion for what they have witnessed, endured and done in Iraq have led to suicide and on behalf of the active-duty soldiers and Marines who commit, on average, a suicide a day. I write this letter on behalf of the some 1 million Iraqi dead and on behalf of the countless Iraqi wounded. I write this letter on behalf of us all—the human detritus your war has left behind, those who will spend their lives in unending pain and grief.

You may evade justice but in our eyes you are each guilty of egregious war crimes, of plunder and, finally, of murder, including the murder of thousands of young Americans—my fellow veterans—whose future you stole.




I write this letter, my last letter, to you, Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney. I write not because I think you grasp the terrible human and moral consequences of your lies, manipulation and thirst for wealth and power. I write this letter because, before my own death, I want to make it clear that I, and hundreds of thousands of my fellow veterans, along with millions of my fellow citizens, along with hundreds of millions more in Iraq and the Middle East, know fully who you are and what you have done. 

You may evade justice but in our eyes you are each guilty of egregious war crimes, of plunder and, finally, of murder, including the murder of thousands of young Americans—my fellow veterans—whose future you stole.




Your positions of authority, your millions of dollars of personal wealth, your public relations consultants, your privilege and your power cannot mask the hollowness of your character. You sent us to fight and die in Iraq after you, Mr. Cheney, dodged the draft in Vietnam, and you, Mr. Bush, went AWOL from your National Guard unit. Your cowardice and selfishness were established decades ago. You were not willing to risk yourselves for our nation but you sent hundreds of thousands of young men and women to be sacrificed in a senseless war with no more thought than it takes to put out the garbage.




I joined the Army two days after the 9/11 attacks. I joined the Army because our country had been attacked. I wanted to strike back at those who had killed some 3,000 of my fellow citizens. I did not join the Army to go to Iraq, a country that had no part in the September 2001 attacks and did not pose a threat to its neighbors, much less to the United States. I did not join the Army to “liberate” Iraqis or to shut down mythical weapons-of-mass-destruction facilities or to implant what you cynically called “democracy” in Baghdad and the Middle East. I did not join the Army to rebuild Iraq, which at the time you told us could be paid for by Iraq’s oil revenues. Instead, this war has cost the United States over $3 trillion. I especially did not join the Army to carry out pre-emptive war. Pre-emptive war is illegal under international law. 

And as a soldier in Iraq I was, I now know, abetting your idiocy and your crimes. The Iraq War is the largest strategic blunder in U.S. history. It obliterated the balance of power in the Middle East. It installed a corrupt and brutal pro-Iranian government in Baghdad, one cemented in power through the use of torture, death squads and terror. And it has left Iran as the dominant force in the region. On every level—moral, strategic, military and economic—Iraq was a failure. And it was you, Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney, who started this war. It is you who should pay the consequences.


Lying Bush whore, war criminal  Dana Perino will join her masters in prison

I would not be writing this letter if I had been wounded fighting in Afghanistan against those forces that carried out the attacks of 9/11. Had I been wounded there I would still be miserable because of my physical deterioration and imminent death, but I would at least have the comfort of knowing that my injuries were a consequence of my own decision to defend the country I love. 

I would not have to lie in my bed, my body filled with painkillers, my life ebbing away, and deal with the fact that hundreds of thousands of human beings, including children, including myself, were sacrificed by you for little more than the greed of oil companies, for your alliance with the oil sheiks in Saudi Arabia, and your insane visions of empire.




I have, like many other disabled veterans, suffered from the inadequate and often inept care provided by the Veterans Administration. I have, like many other disabled veterans, come to realize that our mental and physical wounds are of no interest to you, perhaps of no interest to any politician. We were used. We were betrayed. And we have been abandoned. 


Rest in peace Brother, your death will be avenged
You, Mr. Bush, make much pretense of being a Christian. But isn’t lying a sin? Isn’t murder a sin? Aren’t theft and selfish ambition sins? 

I am not a Christian. But I believe in the Christian ideal. I believe that what you do to the least of your brothers you finally do to yourself, to your own soul.

My day of reckoning is upon me. Yours will come. I hope you will be put on trial.


But mostly I hope, for your sakes, that you find the moral courage to face what you have done to me and to many, many others who deserved to live. 

I hope that before your time on earth ends, as mine is now ending, you will find the strength of character to stand before the American public and the world, and in particular the Iraqi people, and beg for forgiveness.

Gardening As A Political And Revolutionary Act

An act that may also save your health from mass-produced, GMO crop poisoning and add years if not decades to your life    

WORLD NEWS
By Dallas Darling
11/11/2014

In "The Founding Gardeners," Andrea Wulf writes: "The founding fathers' passion for nature, plants, gardens and agriculture is woven deeply into the fabric ofAmerica and aligned with their political thought, both reflecting and influencing it. In fact," she continues, "...It'simpossible to understand the making of America without looking at the founding fathers as farmers and gardeners."(1)


Can the same be true today? In other words, our involvement with plants and gardening is as a kind of barometer about our political persuasions. 

It also measures our revolutionary convictions. In a lucid, fragmented, and burdensome society, interacting with vegetation can be a grounding and liberating experience, radical and self actualization acts which links the gardener with Mother Earthand their very essence of being.



Benjamin Franklin understood this when, and in response to increasing tensions between Britain and America, he turned to plants and agriculture. Among being the most "honest way," agriculture and gardening would help colonists achieve independence. Vegetable plots and small-scale farms would thwart Britain's Intolerable Acts while boycotting its goods. They would also provide a transcendent feeling of unity and nationhood.(2)

Today, many are reexamining their lifestyles in relation to politics and the Earth. The Gardening Movement continues to gain adherents as schools and millions of individuals, evenMichelle Obama, questions the amounts of chemical pesticides on commercial foods. Every $1 spent on locally grown and organic food fosters $1.86 in local economic activity.(3) While chemicals and commercial farming are shunned, a sense of independence develops.

If Franklin thought the colonists could provide all of their necessities through gardening, George Washington dreamed of an agrarian society where plough shares and pruning hooks would someday replace swords and spears.(4) Upon his return from leading the Revolutionary War, he also liberated his own garden, tearing up the transplanted British trees and vegetation and recreating a radical garden exclusively with native species.(5)

Chemical pesticides, like DDT, chlordane and lindane, are toxins. They cause cancer and birth defects while damaging wildlife and vegetation. They were also used in destroyingVietnam's rain forests, supplied to Saddam Hussein to gas and kill Iranians and Kurds, and are now part of the war inAfghanistan. Organic gardening, then, is a political act. It boycotts banking and chemical corporations growing rich from these dangerous poisons.




As for Thomas Jefferson, primary author of the Declaration of Independence and founder of the University of Virginia, he believed gardening was one of the most enlightening and educational experiences. After risking imprisonment for smuggling seeds and plants during the American Revolution, he developed a view that America's future was Agriculture, the "surest road to affluence and best preservative of morals."(6)

Because of his horticultural tendencies, he spent much of his spare time tending to his own garden, retreating often to his presidential office where he tended to plants and flowers. While visitors were surprised to see him dressed as a farmer,Jefferson considered tree-felling "a crime little short of murder." He was so wounded and furious over clear-cutting he wished to be "a despot, to save the noble, the beautiful trees that are daily falling."(7)

Vegetable gardening and planting trees cultivates and nurtures both the individual and environment. This reciprocity benefits the Earth, leading to a more sustainable future. It is also anti hyper-market, in the sense that, the gardener controls the means and mode of production, a holistic liberating event. It rejects competitive and negative stressors while reconnecting individuals to a truer purpose: tending Gardens of Eden.

Therefore, gardening plants, vegetables, and trees is very therapeutic. It helps prevent neurological, psychological, and abnormal traumas in an overly chemicalized and chaotic world. Crawling on and being close to the ground reminds us of the immediacy of our own birth. Feeling fertile soils in our hands reconnects us to Mother Earth. Plants also mirror our own cycles and seasons of living, of being, and, of course, of dying and rebirth.


Private gardens are a direct threat to corporate farmers and their subsidies and have now been declared illegal in some states

Plants, especially native ones, also reminds us of a one-sided exchange which occurred five centuries ago. Since it benefited only some members of society while committing genocide against others, gardening should be a very repentant and contrite experience. Its history should never be forgotten. Its absolution should continually be sought, its roots exposed and addressed, especially towards those who are still being harmed.

"The coming ecological disaster we worry about," wroteJames Hillman in "The Soul's Code," "has already occurred, and goes on occurring. It takes place in the accounts of ourselves that separate ourselves from the world." Gardening provides an opportunity to be a part of a greater collective, to experience Earth's transcendences while challenging destructive and harmful commercial farming, fast-food, and cash crop industries.

This political and revolutionary activity helps us gain a sense of independence and freedom while providing homes and foods for thousands of animal and insect species. It enriches our souls, making us aware of the transcendence of all life-forms that surround us, and which we belong to and are a part of.

U.S. Sailors Attacked In Istanbul By Turkish Mob

This attack and others on American military personnel, their families and U.S. expats can be laid squarely at the feet of Obama, his murdering CIA and the Congress traitors that support and fund the White House criminal administration and their illegal, immoral wars of aggression and resource grabbing in the Middle East; "mainstream media" encourages, aids and abets these attacks in an effort to jack-up ratings and by giving ink and coverage to wanna-be terrorist internet death-porn stars  

WASHINGTON POST
By Dan Lamothe
11/12/2014

Three U.S. sailors were attacked in Istanbul by an angry mob on Wednesday, as a grew of about 20 nationalists threw objects at them, chased them and briefly threw a bag over one of their heads.


Turkish dirtbags assault U.S. sailors
The incident was publicized in a video online, and acknowledged by the U.S. Navy. 

The attack underscores the volatility in Turkey, a longtime U.S. ally that increasingly does not see eye-to-eye with Washington on foreign policy, especially over how to handle the Islamic State militant group in neighboring Syria.

In the video, one of the Turks said the Americans looked like members of the U.S. Army. 


They claimed to be members of the Turkey Youth Union, which is opposed to working with America and becoming members of the European Union.


Illiterate Turkish goat herding swine should be gunned down like that animals they are and always will be; ALL U.S. military personnel should be yanked immediately out of this third world shithole country and Turkey left to the tender mercies of Putin and Spetznaz troops who would deal with this kind of garbage quickly and decisively

“We define you as murderers, as killers… and we want you to get out of our land,” one man said, seconds before the attack ensues.

The Navy said the Americans were sailors assigned to the USS Ross, a destroyer, and in Turkey for a scheduled port visit. 


Obama poodle Erdogan bites hand that feeds him
They appeared to be in their late teens or early 20s. They were able to get away without sustaining injuries, and are back aboard the Ross, Navy officials said. “The U.S. Navy is currently working with the Turkish National Police and U.S. Embassy staff to investigate this incident,” said a statement from U.S. Naval Forces Europe/Africa

“The U.S. Navy will continue to coordinate with Turkish authorities to review security procedures for future ship visits.”



In a series of tweets, the U.S. Embassy in Turkey blasted the attack, calling it appalling. 

The vast majority of Turks are against “an action that so disrespects Turkey’s reputation for hospitality.”
