With Israel issuing direct threats in opposition to each Syria and Iran of thermonuclear devastation if both nation retaliates in opposition to Israeli bombing assaults, the world strikes nearer to the brink. Many components, together with and particularly Israel’s inside political collapse, are pushing the world towards a wider battle. American political instability makes issues even worse.
What has been ignored is the extent of risk Saudi Arabia represents, a politically primitive nation with a large protection funds and a few very darkish secrets and techniques, a few of which will likely be revealed right here.
The reality is on the market, however actual whistle blowers seldom survive. Some do, and I do know them.
You see, most nations have secret organizations, often army instructions, that examine not solely nuclear proliferation however monitor the usage of nuclear explosives. Previous design nukes solely burned a little bit of their cores, leaving the remaining as fallout. New ones are clear, no leftover radiation in any respect, low-cost to construct, easy in design and any nation that desires nuclear weapons can have them and, in response to sources, many do.
To start with, let’s speak about Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia has a bigger army funds than Russia, however Russia spends a lot of their funds on an enormous standing military, a big navy, dozens of nuclear submarines and a large thermonuclear missile functionality supported by an equally large stockpile of nuclear weapons.
Saudi Arabia spends greater than Russia however has a small navy, a really small standing military, principally overseas mercenaries or troops “employed” from “allies.” Their funds is senseless until you study it fastidiously. Saudi Arabia spends as much as 40% of its army funds on nuclear weapons and supply programs.
For this reason they’re caught mendacity so usually when claims are made about what number of weapons they purchase annually from Britain and the US. The true delivered numbers are miniscule and Saudi Arabia relies on American bombs, American refueling and even Israeli planes of their struggle on Yemen.
That is from CNN, October 13, 2018, and figures from Britain are skewed much more:
“Washington (CNN) President Donald Trump says he doesn’t desire a $110 billion arms deal he brokered with Saudi Arabia to unravel over allegations the Gulf kingdom murdered a journalist at its consulate in Turkey.
However his feedback are lacking the mark on a key truth: Saudi Arabia has thus far solely adopted by means of on $14.5 billion in purchases.
The deal brokered final yr between the US and Saudi Arabia was merely a memorandum of intent to meet almost $110 billion in arms gross sales over the following 10 years. As of but, Saudi Arabia has solely signed letters of supply and acceptance — official buy agreements which have both already been permitted by Congress or within the strategy of being permitted — for $14.5 billion in purchases, in response to a Pentagon official.”
I debriefed a UN supply, a weapons inspector with highest clearances, that led an official investigation into Saudi Arabia’s nuclear program. Due to corruption at each stage of media and knowledge, governmental, the web, even intelligence experiences that generally trickle down, this data, although recognized to all in energy, shouldn’t be public. Here’s what we all know:
- Saudi Arabia started buying uranium processing gear from Germany, excessive pace centrifuges to provide uranium 235 at weapons grade in the course of the Nineteen Seventies.
- Saudi Arabia purchased its first nuclear weapon from China within the early Eighties. Their first weapon, in response to the sources was a 22-kiloton gun sort uranium bomb. China then equipped the Saudi’s with an unspecified quantity, lower than 10, smaller weapons that could possibly be deployed on missiles. From Wikipedia:
“In 1987, Saudi Arabia bought Chinese language-made CSS-2 intermediate-range ballistic missiles designed and utilized by the Chinese language as a nuclear-armed missile, however reportedly bought to Saudi Arabia with standard high-explosive warheads. Nonetheless their low round error possible accuracy (1–1.5 km) makes them unsuitable for efficient army use in opposition to army targets when carrying a standard warhead. The CSS-2 has a spread of 4,850 km with a payload of both 2,150 or 2,500 kg. These missiles have been delivered with between 50 and 35 transporter erector launcher vehicles. These missiles have been the primary weapons of the Royal Saudi Strategic Missile Pressure, a separate department of Saudi Arabia’s armed forces. In 2013 the existence of the Royal Saudi Strategic Missile Pressure was formally introduced.
Newsweek quoted an nameless supply in 2014 that Saudi Arabia had acquired CSS-5 intermediate-range ballistic missiles from China in 2007 with “Washington’s quiet approval on the situation that CIA technical consultants may confirm they weren’t designed to hold nuclear warheads”. The Middle for Strategic and Worldwide Research lists the CSS-5 as being able to carrying both 250-kiloton or 500-kiloton nuclear or numerous sorts of standard high-explosive warheads. The CSS-5, whereas it has a relatively shorter vary (2,800 km) and half the payload (1 ton) of the CSS-2, is solid-fueled, thus could be arrange and positioned on alert standing extra simply than the liquid-fueled CSS-2, and its accuracy is far better (round error possible of 30 meters).”
- The following provider was Israel. That nation had been working with South Africa and, between 1975 when these nations signed a secret nuclear accord, and September 22, 1979, when the primary South African nuclear gadget, a 13.2 kiloton (80ms “double-flash”) was exploded on a barge adjoining to Prince Edward Island, a number of hundred miles south of Cape City. That know-how, developed on the Armscor at Pelandaba, has lengthy been recognized publicly. That British corporations backed the method and that Saudi Arabia aided in financing shouldn’t be publicly recognized.
Nonetheless, what’s spoken of as we speak, straying miles from the reality, is a disinformation marketing campaign that tries to erase historical past. From Strategic Tradition, a website the FBI says is financed by a overseas spy company, we learn the next:
“The Israeli authorities has begun promoting the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia data on the way to develop nuclear weapons, in response to a senior official on the Israeli army group iHLS (Israel’s Homeland Safety). Ami Dor-on, a senior nuclear commentator on the group — which is partially funded by U.S. weapons-giant Raytheon – got here ahead due to his concern over the rising nuclear arms race within the area. The cooperation between the 2 international locations in serving to the Saudis to develop a nuclear weapons program is simply the most recent signal of their warming relationship, with Israel not too long ago calling the Saudi crown prince ‘a accomplice of Israel.’”
Although “packaged” as a revelation, in reality the data which appears to rattling each Israel and Saudi Arabia, in reality covers for 40 years of cooperation in nuclear weapons analysis and manufacturing.
Saudi Arabia’s subsequent foray into nuclear partnership touches on Pakistan. Since 1979, Pakistan has deployed troops in Saudi Arabia, ostensibly to defend that nation, keep in mind, a nation with a army funds bigger than Russia, from Iran.
By 1982, a protocol was signed and forces, quantity formally as much as 20,000, have been deployed in Saudi Arabia. In line with our sources, amongst them, in most up-to-date years, have been extremely skilled specialists to safe a Pakistani nuclear arsenal together with nuclear tipped missiles, deployed inside Saudi Arabia, “rented” because it have been, as a deterrent in opposition to Iran.
Saudi Arabia has lengthy conspired in opposition to Iran together with Israel but, fairly clearly, it’s Saudi Arabia that may endure the brunt of Iranian retaliation have been a secret nuclear assault on Iran to be staged from Saudi Arabia or utilizing Saudi airspace.
Have been one to delve additional into the intricacies of geopolitics, India’s political alliances, their dance between Russia and the US, and the key army cooperation agreements between Israel and each India and Pakistan, one thing I mentioned throughout an interview with then ISI Director Ahmad Shurja Pasha in 2011, weigh closely on Saudi Arabia’s safety considerations.
Suffice it to say, although there isn’t any public dialogue of Saudi Arabia’s nuclear program aside from these indicating it has gone on for many years and is, maybe, essentially the most unsuccessful such endeavor in planetary historical past, a really actual arsenal exists and, in response to extremely educated sources, the Kingdom has deployed nuclear weapons in opposition to Yemen on a number of events.
A supply on the IAEA claims, backed by a 2006 secret report from International Safety, that the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing, blamed on an Iranian backed Saudi faction, was, in reality, a nuclear explosion.
The report quotes the Protection Particular Weapons Company, established on 29 January 1947 by the Atomic Power Fee beneath the Atomic Power Act of 1946 (Public Legislation 585, 79th Congress) to supervise and examine the usage of nuclear weapons and their influence on the safety of the USA.
The conclusion of the report, redacted from public view, concluded that the Khobar Towers have been destroyed by a tactical nuclear munition equaling 100 tons of TNT.
The same IAEA report confirmed that discovering, citing a blast crater and thermal harm solely potential throughout a nuclear occasion. From that report:
“On June 25, 1996, Saudi terrorists sponsored by Iran attacked the Khobar Towers barracks, a high-rise constructing advanced in a densely populated city setting in Saudi Arabia. The tanker truck loaded with not less than 5000 kilos of plastic explosives was pushed into the car parking zone in entrance of the Khobar Towers residential advanced in Dhahran.
Nineteen American service members have been killed within the blast, and a whole lot of different service members and Saudis have been injured.
There isn’t any doubt that the extent of casualties within the Khobar Towers resulted, partially, from the extraordinary measurement of the terrorist bomb that contained the equal of 3000 to 8000 kilos of TNT, however a examine by the Protection Particular Weapons Company concluded that the ability of the bomb was really nearer to twenty,000 kilos of TNT, (100 tons).”
The true conclusion of the report was, in reality, that Saudi Arabia had staged the assault themselves in an try to push the US right into a struggle with Iran.
A really comparable report was issued by the identical company, working with the IAEA and US Division of Power, in 2003, providing their principle as to the occasions of 9/11. That report stays categorized.
Placing a lot of the background collectively, transferring ahead the general public file on trendy nuclear weapons and their secret deployment was the publication of The Historical past of Nuclear Weapons Design 1945 -2016, printed by Veterans Immediately. From that report, written by particle physicist and former IAEA inspector, Jeff Smith with Ian Greenhalgh:
“Within the minds of most individuals, a nuclear weapon is a big gadget carried on the tip of an ICBM or carried within the stomach of an enormous bomber plane that when deployed produces a colossal explosion and spectacular mushroom cloud identical to all these terrifying Fifties newsreels.
Nonetheless, that is now not the case – nuclear weapon design is a number of generations upfront of the cumbersome units of the Chilly Warfare and as we speak, all kinds of sorts of nuclear weapon exist and so they are available in all sizes from the smallest ‘micro nukes’ with yields measuring in a whole lot of tonnes of TNT equal as much as actually monstrous two and three stage bombs with yields of many tens of millions of tonnes of TNT (megatonnes).
The megatonne class bombs have by no means been deployed in anger; if they’d, there can be no potential technique to hold it a secret – the devastation and fallout can be on such a grand scale as to be inconceivable to cover. Nonetheless, the sub-kilotonne mini and micro nukes have been used many instances, each in false flag ‘terrorist’ assaults like September 11 and OK Metropolis and in army conflicts in international locations comparable to Iraq, Syria and Yemen.
The small yield and restricted destruction of those mini and micro nukes means it’s potential to maintain their use secret; particularly when the media are compliant and willfully ignore any and all cases of their use. The willingness of a number of gamers to make use of these diabolical weapons ought to ship a chill down the backbone of each wise particular person – we live in a brand new nuclear age way more harmful and lethal than the earlier Chilly Warfare period with its steadiness of nuclear energy held in examine by the terrifying idea of Mutually Assured Destruction.
Now that superior nuclear weapons have turn into a part of the playbook of recent battle it turns into vital to know one thing about these weapons; to study their traits and results in order that it turns into ever tougher to maintain their use secret.”
The report goes additional, not solely into specifics of design, miniaturization and the historical past of weapons growth however right into a coverage of “use and denial.”
“Within the latest fifth technology units the uranium or plutonium fissile content material has been drastically diminished by as a lot as 90% solely leaving sufficient fissile materials wanted to ignite and set off the interior fission-fusion-fission response of the deuterium enhance fuel. On this course of, virtually all the fissile materials is completely consumed, producing virtually no detectable traces of fallout, as in comparison with the older designs from the WW2 period.
These newer fifth technology weapon designs are the anarchist “twenty first century” favourite toys of mass destruction. By covertly hiding their existence away from most people and secretly utilizing them in stealthy nuclear-based guerrilla warfare assaults on undesirable individuals, governments or international locations — such because the Saudi’s use of a small tactical nuke on Yemen — with these new weapons of “very small” mass destruction, no non-nuclear possessing authorities can correctly defend itself from this type of covert state-sponsored nuclear warfare.”
As we see, the “nuclear genii” has lengthy been out of the bottle, recognized to all however these depending on the pretend public narrative, the “info” allowed, fed to a public lengthy deemed to don’t have any “proper to the reality.”
By and enormous, when the general public evaluates, utilizing such instruments as it’s allowed, the actions of chief, of insurance policies adopted, all soaked in spin and rhetoric, it does so with each fingers tied behind its again.
Saudi Arabia’s nuclear story, one solely touched on right here, is one story. There are a lot of, Brazil, Japan, Canada, South Korea, Taiwan, so many extra tales, a lot fakery hidden behind the categorized experiences of companies nobody has heard of.
Thus, when the princelings of the Saudi kingdom order killings, fund terrorism and threaten their neighbors, they achieve this with a nuclear functionality, enabled by those that lie for them, those that armed them, those that hold their secrets and techniques.
