Caution! This information was diligently covered up and suppressed in the US and the West in general.
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.
The USS Donald Cook (DDG-75) is a 4th generation guided missile destroyer whose key weapons are Tomahawk cruise missiles with a range of up to 2,500 kilometers.
The US destroyer is equipped with the most recent Aegis Combat System that can ensure the detection, tracking and destruction of hundreds of targets at the same time. For protection, it carries more than fifty anti-aircraft missiles of various types.
On April 10, 2014, the USS Donald Cook entered the waters of the Black Sea and on April 12 a Russian Su-24 tactical 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.
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, 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 mainstream 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.”
So what happened in the Black Sea?
Having been out of circulation in the 1990s, the Russian navy fleet lost the edge it enjoyed during Soviet days. Restoring the above-water fleet was a very expensive and lengthy proposition.
Precious time was lost and trying to simply catch up would be risky for Russia. But Russia had advantages in other areas, one of them being submarines, much more sophisticated than those of the US.
Another area was the secret Russian electronic weapon capable of jamming the most sophisticated American military electronics, thus rendering the entire giant US fleet useless. These relatively inexpensive are proven to put Russia at an advantage over the our boys at sea.
When USS Donald Cook entered the Black Sea, Russians decided to send the US Navy a message. This was also a warning not to get any ideas about interfering in the Crimea, which was about to have a referendum to secede from Ukraine.
This is just another version of Russian built anti-electronics weapons… It’s a very small but precise version of the EMP.
And as I will soon show you… The Russian EMP is far more dangerous than ISIS or any other Islamic terrorist.
With Obastard running our military,,,, wtf do you expect?????????
Sure Jimbo, blame Obama. Not the pentagon, or the military industrial complex, or the Republican war mongers trying to get us into wars all over the planet at the behest of their corporate masters.
I’ll bet you thought “W” was in charge for the 8 years before they let that muslim negro into the white house…right?
Jim B You said it the way it is. I am glad you pulled no punches. This could not have been said any better
A short time ago our intel was given to our enemys in yeman. I’m glad our government legalized pot so our government cannot be accused of doing something illeagal while giving that info to our enemy. We appear to have zero intelligence when it comes to giving them anything they need.
Obama is our Commander in chief……under his direction our intelligence was given to a suspect government which should not be trusted with any sensitive information let alone
our vehicles and equipment. I’m they appreciate all of it. That info will cause many deaths f those who helped us.
The Russians showed us something our intel had no clue they could do what they did.
Do we have any people in the defense department capable of anticipating what Russia will do next?
Thank you King O; just stick your head in the ground!
Well what do you expect! After all this years with King O in charge. he’ll just stick his head in the sand and fire another general!
I assume you are talking about Petreus, the lecherous and treasonous idiot who should now be in prison, not just fired.
This turd in the W.H. has fired 9 Generals and Admirals since he became the Commander in Chief. He wants to be the almighty ruler as Putin is . Here is this JACKASS, (our wonderful leader) who knows shit about the military, and refuses to listen to our Military leaders for any advise given to him. So what does our illustrious turd do? He puts his skinny black knees together, starts to piss his shorts, puts one thumb up his ass, then the other thumb in his mouth and plays SWITCH, as he starts to sob and cry! Folks, this how I picture Obama in a time of crisis. What a little wussy we have to lead our country. The whole world laughs at this little black puke. Honestly, folks, can you blame the rest of the world?
Actually he is probably too busy playing golf, doing coke or sucking ***** to do something positive for our military or country. And let’s set the record straight before this goes any farther, GHWB, and GWB should be rotting in jail for all they did but this son of bitch Moslem ****** is in the top 5 of the enemies this country has ever had!
PJ, You could not make a pimple on the ass of General P. His only sin was being forced to do the bidding of an anti American, anti capitalism hack in the White House. If he messed around and it was wrong, how come it is ok for Bill Clinton and Ted “the driver” Kennedy and JFK and LBJ and all of the other powerful men and women in history? It was wrong because dolt’s like you have been so dumbed down by our pathetic educational system that you don’t seem to think any socialist/commie can do anything wrong and a conservative can’t do anything right. Look at history, socialism have never freeking worked anywhere in the realm of history. The system has always failed when it ran out of other peoples money and when the enslaved (enslaved by give away programs) realized that they could vote themselves benefits by keeping the givers in office. Look a Greece and most of the European Union. They have given themselves into bankruptcy. A good example of a country that has realized this and may be able to save themselves economically is Sweden. They changed direction from Socialism to a more Capitalism driven government and, VIOLA, they are doing much better economically.
You have the unmitigated gall to praise a thug like Putin and openly admire a dolt like BHO?
You might have a degree or even a number of degrees, but you are pathetically ignorant. Ignorant of history and human nature. But alas, as all commie/socialists say, the end justifies the means. God help us all when we have American citizens thinking, acting and doing as you do. You are an ignorant fool.
This is the result of having the most inept president this country has even endured. We are laughed at around the world in general and everyday our enemy nations become more emboldened. What frightens me most is I believe it is by design.
You got that right,especially the last part!! It is be design!
well i hope b now our military has done something to prevent this from happening again. with obama in the white house and him an Putin not seeing eye to eye and getting in there business, i would not put it past Putin to deinate an EMP over our heads !
I wouldn’t put it past our current philanderer and thief to do it, just to have a crisis big enough that he would need to invoke Martial Law. Then he could transform our country properly.
Vulnerable….Toothless?…Bowing to our professed enemies, while supplying them with funds to do with whatever they want, while turning our backs on lifelong friends of democracy? Where are the “Patriots”?…The ones who swore, under oath, to protect our country and constitution? It’s hard to believe that a United States President, and a congressman or senator of ANY party, has taken us down this road. Does complaining, or writing our lawmakers, who enact legislation that they are not subject to, do any good? Too intent on following “party lines” instead of being the statesmen that made this country what it was. Oh boy, do we need REAL change…and TRANSPARENCY. AND a country of informed citizens who take it upon themselves to know what’s going on. Yeah, I know…I’m rambling. Raise your voices! Let those in power be reminded who put them there, and who the power really belongs to, and who’ll make, hopefully, “smart decisions” at the polls next time around.
In order to have informed citizens, they must first be educated. Then, the press has to be free and not bought by corporate interests. Then the politicians have to be freed from re-election fundraising so they can represent US, and not their corporate masters. We have no defense against EMP attacks, so perhaps we had better STOP being the world’s bully, and start treating our allies,(like Russia) with respect. Russia has never invaded anyone,(neither has Iran) What Putin did was to stop buying US treasury bonds, as did China, and start dumping them. He is trying to support the Shia Muslims in their fight against the Sunni radicals, like Al-quida and Isis, who are funded by the Saudis and now the Isrealies…YES, our supposed friends in the middle east!
Interesting more $ wasted
so can’t we focus an emp on our ships to take out the plane’s emp electronics? There must be a contra to this garb, one being shoot down the Su24 before it can “fly over” our ships….., unless of course it takes F22s to shoot the Su24 out of the sky…..because mr obama decided we didn’t need them anymore…..just saying.
Come on! The point is, besides the fact that we dont need F-22 s capable of fighting aliens in outer space, and just as vulnerable to EMP attacks as an F-18…but costing 10 times as much…but why would we want to shoot down an unarmed (or armed) fighter jet flying by in international waters, where they have every right to be? The other point is, they would have probably done something stupid if they COULD have, but EVERYTHING is shut down when the power gets turned off, so they could easily have sunk that ship, but DID NOT. So how about lets NOT poke the frigging gentle and gracious BEAR !
Richard, simply says to me,blow anything not known,out of the sky BEFORE it gets within range to jam our systems!!! Thanks for the heads up Russia!!!
PJ, Your comments really are stupid to the extreme. I have been reading your socialist. commie loving comments and just wonder why the heck you don’t just pull your US ticket and move to the generous and benevolent land of the Bear?
I am sure you really hate history, since you don’t seem to want to learn from it.
This is very serious. We have to continue praying for the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, according to the request of Our Lady of Fatima, if we hope to enjoy true world peace. No kidding.
I am in awe at the “Derpitude” the average American has sunk to. Read a history book! If you truly “love” your country, “Umurka” then take an objective look at where it came from to get an idea as to where it is going. Simply the latest in a long line of “super-powers” whose elite have used their power to subjugate the rest of the world. All bully’s get an ass whoopin sooner or later. Look up “petro-dollar” to see just one example of the US propping up evil dictators for the sake of big oil profits. You want to save the US? Get money out of politics, stop spending over 30% of GDP on weapons, take back the press from private, big business interests, and take care of the health and education of “We the People”. BTW, we should all send thank you notes to our FRIEND, Mr. Putin, for not sending our boys to a watery grave. After all, what would WE have done if a Russian destroyer showed up in the Gulf of Mexico?
If any Russian destroyer entered the Gulf of Mexico, then Obama would fly down to greet them, and throw a super gala party for them in the white house ! In other words, Obama would kiss their ASSES !
PJ,you do have a point there!!
So, PJ, the entire historical existence, from the Revolutionary War through this very minute, has been one giant deception upon the masses, perpetrated by the super elite. We’ve been tricked into loving principles, values, freedom, being able to have a constitution, forgiving our enemies and each other, being willing to die in wars that affected the freedom of others, but that did not make us richer?
All this by the super elite??? Wow, American, err, I mean UMURKA is just a sham. Amazing. You’re an idiot.
How can you sit there and seriously make the comment that the “Russians” have never invaded anyone. Have you ever heard of Czechoslvokia, Poland, Ukraine, Afghanistan?? Russian bombers have been buzzing our territory for the past 2 years and we havent splashed one. No one wants an incident that would create more tension, what they did is an act of aggression. Your friend Mr.Putin is a throwback to the soviet era politics and is creating more tension in the region than we are.
Wow PJ….you are not the brightest bulb on the tree……not to mention a tad illiterate. Read Douglas White’s comment…over and over until you pass out. He make sense……you are a dope!
Very concerning and I agree with everyone that our Muslim in Chief have been so worried about being PC to Islam, kissing suspect countries a$$es and weakening our country that we shouldn’t be shocked.
However what surprised me out out all of this is that if the plane could kick out an EMP powerful enough to disable our ship, how did it not knock itself out of the sky? Was it completely devoid of electrical chips? Probably not. So what was their secret to preventing disabling of itself? Built in faraday cage? What… Can an EMP be directionally controlled that well.
Not doubting that something happened but was it really from the plane or did it come from elsewhere?
Emp can very easily be directional based on the antenna design. The plan’s electronic equipment is probably shielded.
I wonder, I just wonder, did MaoBama hear about it on the news!!?? That seems to be his greatest source of information.
BUCK OFAMA !
Fou years the military has been forced to buy off the shelf equipment instead of military specification equipment that will not affected by emp because of the cost. Now you know why that should should not have been requireed.
this would be because we MUST fund “entitlements”, you know, the free things that NOBODY IS ENTITLED TO. They are the single largest expense to our annual budget. I realize money must be set aside to care for less fortunate, people in real need, but do you think our government is actually trying to care for people with this money? They are buying votes.
You can blame anybody you want. The unsolved, ignored, and inescapable problems and wrongs that exist must be owned by the EXISTING ADMINISTRATION, because they are who is in charge today, and they all took an oath to attend to those responsibilities. Bush, or whoever, did what they did. They aren’t there anymore.
Obama is putting out a fire with a can of gasoline, when he could have picked up a can of water, and still could.
From: A serious student of both
You miss the point entirely. Ivan and Isis are two different, independent and seriously hostile threats. They are independent of each other however at sometime they may act in concert. Its one, or the other or both. And we had better fund forces to kill Isis and R&D to counter Ivan. Of course, under the Imamobama there is hardly a chance of either.
Any and every lock can be picked. There is no level of encryption that is above the breaking of its security. This is why drones are a total joke. Sure, they work for now, but there are only so many frequencies that have the bandwidth and speed to stand up to a military demand, and only so large of an encryption algorithm that can allow that speed. Once the dynamics of those parameters are realized, those in the know can hijack your little toy plane with missiles attached, and blow you to bits. Don’t think for one minute that anything that the media tells you is truth, is actually the truth. You are to believe a lie from birth to abortion. If you follow the mainstream, you are the most fooled and foolish man alive, except for the dumass idiot next to you.
If the plane took out all the electronic devices aboard the destroyer it kind of makes me wonder how the plane wasn’t affected as well
fantabulous issues altogether, you but North Korean won a
post fresh referee. What may you advocate in regards to your
issue that you fair made a few years ago? Any certainly?
Perhaps if our beloved president was not so interested in spying on Americans and had been using the NSA for its designed purpose our military might have been informed as to Russia’s ability to disable our electronic devices and catch us with our pants down and unprepared.
OK, face the facts…(1) Barry was raised by his COMMIE father while he was still in Africa; (2) He was then transplanted by his mother to South East Asia where he continued his indoctrination, like every good little COMMIE brat does, into the realm of COMMUNISM by his card-carrying step dad!…(3) ever since his days in college he frequented the local gay clubs and spent most of his days either sucking **** or sucking on a joint; (4) he has always sided with the world of Islam over Christianity and tries his hardest to badmouth Christians while espousing his true “faith” of Islam; (5) he considers himself “KING” of our United States and doesn’t give a shit what Americans feel about his outrageous “EXECUTIVE ORDERS” and threatens any/everyone who tries to take a stand against him or any of his fellow thugs like his “Attorney General” and other incompetent staff!; (6) He has made it clear that he wants to leave a “LEGACY” of being the “president” who destroyed America!
The truth was there was a politically motivated order that if any Russian Aircraft came into range the Captain was to turn off Aegis and leave the ship defenseless in order to not provoke an attack. This is why the crew were upset. In the past ships were allowed to lock onto incoming military aircraft. As for EMP, there is no way to produce an EMP stronger than what our ships have been hardened against without using a nuclear device hundreds of megatons in yield or a star. Non nuclear EMP is far to weak. The scenes in Godzilla were comical when EMP affected military hardware.
I’m glad I scanned all the comments to find yours. Your comment is the only one in the entire thread worth reading and most likely is the truth about what happened. It would follow suite with most ROE these days.
Socialism has not worked wherever it has been tried. But the many “Academia educated “close advisors to our Pres.do not fully realize this fact. We should all pray that we can survive the balance of Obama’s regime.
John Kerry should act like the true American he claims to be and release all of the e-mails from the State Dept. to the Bengazi committee.
And finally don’t think for a minute that the many not too friendly Nations to the U.S. are watching all of this weakness of our Administration very closely.
We have some of the most innovated and smartest scientists and engineers on the planet. Instead of going over and over about how we (the American people) voted for a socialist that hates this country and wants to see its downfall, let’s fix the damage that he’s done and once again have the most sofisticated, strongest military machine in the world
@ PJ…Dude you are pissing up a rope trying to tell these boneheaded RW morons anything. You’re wasting your breath because they have bought the ‘story’ and couldn’t see reality in front of their face if it glowed with neon lights. If truth was known, they still yearn for the heady days of Reagan-Bushco, where all this really got started. Our military is so corrupt and decadent that anyone that believes that we are the pointy end of the stick is truly delusional. The US runs the global terrorism campaign and has for the last 60 or 70 years or more. The only people that don’t know this are Americans…like the deluded fools you’re speaking to…how many ever heard of Operation Gladio? Gladio B? The best you can do is set yourself on the road to ridding ourselves of the leeches we call rethuglicans and demogogs and ignore those who will never get it because they believe everything on Faux news and the rest of the MSM circus. Yes Obama is a Muslim…yeah, because dope head Limbaugh or someother RW corporate shill says so. Islam is terrorism, yeah, because Cheney and Rummy say so. Socialism is the problem…yeah, all the banks that have destroyed the economy are socialists, not capitalists. There are no false flag events here…it’s all muslim terrorists. IS is all muslim led and generated…yeah, Israel, Saudi,Qatar,Turkey and Jordan are fighting IS for years now. What a success! Russia’s been at it for 2 months and has done more damage than US coalition ever did. Either Russia is much more efficient or someone is a hell of a liar…but don’t expect this crowd to get it…the military is innocent…it’s all Obama and Insane McCain is a hero. The CIA and the MIC isn’t at fault…it’s the ‘liberals’…as if there is any such thing in this country. Obama is no better and certainly no worse than Bushco, who let us not forget, gave Obama all the tools he is now using against us…TSA, PA and HS. But no, these are things we need, say the brain dead, to fight terrorism. The fact is that the US MIC is draining the countries’ finances at the expense of our infrastructure for golf courses and weapons that are obsolete before they’re built at continually inflated costs and production delays, producing units that are problem prone(F-35)because they can, urged on by the idiots in DC and enabled by DAs that believe their Zionist tripe. Take a good look at the new Russian hardware and electronics capabilities…then realize that it’s all done at a fraction of what we spend on over-bloated, marginally effective, soon to be obsolete equipment. Since the US military budget is bigger than the next 5 countries combined, you would think we’d be at the head of the class, but it ain’t so, they just bluster about and obfuscate when cornered on this and tell us it’s Obamas fault…a good for instance is the continual moaning about Libya and Benghazi…all this ‘concern’ over lying and emails (mis-direction)…when they should be more concerned about why the mis-direction and obfuscation by the administration in relation to the subject. Not how it happened…but the actual WHY and WHO of the act itself…then you’ll end up back in 2000 and Gen Wesley Clarks admission of PNAC goals, the CIA and Israel. In short, PJ, logic has no meaning and you can’t fix stupid.
I guess it makes sense that the Russians would reveal such a game changing technology over such an important mission like the USS Donald Cook cruising the black sea. Putin is crazy enough to do it no doubt. I wonder what the size of such jamming device would be (The aegis system is quite potent) ? Can they really fit such a device on a Su-24 and/or every plane in their arsenal? Impressive work have to give it to the Russians. The reports I read said the crew resigned. I did not know we can operate a destroyer with only 27 people (I guess there is a bright side to every problem. )? One thing bothers me I have a tough time believing 27 USN sailors the entire crew would immediately resign over such incident. Can Navy personnel simply resign? Did the sailors have to purchase their own tickets home from Romania after resigning? Whatever the case it is good to know Romania has the available technology to help. Any news on when the ship entered the Romanian port? In the end one thing we know for sure always trust Russian news sources for important information .
On another page two people noted:
“An incident that resulted in the resignation of “ALL 27″ members of a US Navy destroyer (with a crew of ~280), about nine months ago, has only been reported on Russian media sites, and conspiracy web sites. ”
“The Donald Cook went back and just left the black sea about a week ago, before that USS Ross was there in Sept, and USS Cole was there in October. So if it did happen, they dont seem to be shying away from sending “helpless ships” into harms way.”
These guys are misguided fools if you ask me.
