Is Communism Dead? - Part VII
If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and
warn the people; Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and
taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall
be upon his own head. Ezekiel 33:3-4
We will show some recent articles concerning Russia as it prepares for war
against the US.
In an article titled "Suspected Internet Cable Spy Ship Operating In
Americas For Over A Month," it says "Russia's controversial intelligence
ship Yantar has been operating in the Caribbean, or mid-Atlantic, since
October. She is suspected by Western navies of being involved in
operations on undersea communications cables. Significantly, she appears
to be avoiding broadcasting her position via AIS (Automated Identification
System). I suspect that going dark on AIS is a deliberate measure to
frustrate efforts to analyse her mission. She has briefly used AIS while
making port calls, where it would be expected by local authorities, for
example whilecalling at Trinidad on November 8 and again on November 28.
However in both cases she disappeared from AIS tracking sites almost as
soon as she left port. Based on the exact locations where she disappeared,
she likely turned it off. We can see this because other ships, which were
much further away, were being picked up by the same AIS station. Another
possibility is that her AIS transponder is operating with an unusually low
power output. It amounts to the same thing. She also has a satellite AIS
system, which we can be sure has been switched off. . . . Yantar has been
observed conducting search patterns in the vicinity of internet cables,
and there is circumstantial evidence that she has been responsible for
internet outages, for example off the Syrian coast in 2016. The Caribbean
has a large number of undersea internet cables including many which lead
to and from the United States. A study by British think tank Policy
Exchange described undersea internet cables as “Indispensable but
insecure.” It noted that they are “jugulars of the world economy which are
a singularly attractive target for our enemies.” The report mentions
Yantar, saying that she carries two submersibles capable of "cutting
cables or tapping them for information."
In another article titled "Google goes offline after fibre cables cut," it
says "Severed fibre optic cables disrupted internet access in parts of
eastern Europe, Iran and Turkey on Thursday. The issue, which lasted for
about two hours, was caused by multiple fibre cables being physically cut
at the same time, a highly unusual thing to happen. Google said its
services were among those unavailable in the region for about 30 minutes.
The company told internet service providers to connect to its other
servers to "route around the problem". In a statement, the company blamed
'multiple simultaneous fibre cuts', which are very rare. BBC Monitoring
confirmed that internet access in Bulgaria, Iran and Turkey had been
disrupted for about two hours on Thursday morning. Sadjad Bonabi, a
director at Iran's Communications Infrastructure Company, said two cuts
happened at once, one between Iran and Bucharest and the other on a line
to Munich. This disrupted traffic on one of the major fibre cables in the
region. But Mr Bonabi said traffic had been routed on to "healthy"
connections in western and southern Iran. No explanation for the cut
cables has been offered. Google told the BBC it would publish a full
incident report in the coming weeks.
In these two articles we see a Russian spy ship in the Atlantic capable of
cutting our underwater cables and Google's fibre optic cables being cut by
three nations that are influenced by Russia. Russia had just successfully
tested its unplugged internet on Dec 24, 2019.
