Jack Murphy says he knows. I can’t recall reading Murphy’s reporting on this story, which dates back to a few days before Christmas. Obviously I’ve heard about these events, one of which happened within the last few days. Now, Russia officially attributes these often spectacular events to accidental causes. You can find photos of some these events
Is there any possibility that Russia is behind the power grid, railway, agro business "accidents" here in the US. After the Nordstrom and the Crimean Bridge, no doubt, we deserve whatever Russia chooses to do to us, still, it makes you wonder. Russia will not blab, if they are.
Remarkable that the confounding question is whether it’s Russian sabotage or our own.
Ukraine has some fairly capable special operations forces, and they have Russian speakers. Given the CIA's past track record for operations inside Russia, which is very much a non-permissive environment, I wouldn't bet a plugged ruble on any of this being true.
IDK. Can’t wrap my head around such sophisticated coordination between NATO spies and the CIA using sleeper cells.
My version of plausible deniability.
It seems pretty striking how much of our infrastructure seems to be under attack lately. We've seen too many strange blow-ups at food facilities for me to recount. We've seen multiple train derailments, with the Ohio disaster the most recent - oh nope, there was a train derailment in Texas more recently. There was the overturned truck in AZ spilling nitric acid. The gas line running to Las Vegas that sprung a strange leak, causing the Governor to declare an emergency. There have been multiple sabotage attacks on power stations. It goes on and on.
But the good news is that it would be incredibly difficult for Russian operatives to enter the US because our borders are SEALED. Nobody gets through. Oh, except for the 5 million (at a minimum) illegals who have crossed since Biden took office. But I'm sure none of them were Russians. Oh, wait.
Given where we are today, shouldn't we consider whether former Special Forces operative Murphy's claims are (or are not) another shiny object to distract us while other stuff is happening outside our notice. I think it has come to this.
Reckless + feckless = The Empire of Lies.
Might as well paint a huge target on domestic infrastructure. Escalating these activities is extremely dangerous. It also makes true the allegation that Russia isn't fighting Ukraine but NATO, which would make every NATO country a legitimate target.
One's a tragedy. Two's a coincidence. Three?
