followed by huge explosions at a Japanese airfield
( edited to get a link to work - sorry - newb )

anyone starting to sway to the idea there is sabotage occurring on an increasing magnitude ?

Sorry EA , I think I have fixed the links here. I am a newb and still learning the in's and out's.

Covert and economic warfare are heating up fast. Almost time for the big showdown from the looks of all the geopolitical maneuvering and the stock market decimation

It certainly looks like it's come to blows already. If China devalues their currency again, a bigger warning will be needed.

Perhaps an accident at a Chinese military base....

Huge explosions at texas chemical plant ( where two large gas pipelines blew in the same time frame )
obvious sabotage of Iran-Turkey gas pipeline
Explosion on gas pipeline from Egypt to Israel
huge explosion at Libyan oilfield/pipeline
Large subsurface Russian oil pipeline fire

So along with Tianjin, the new chinese chemical plant explosion and the one a month ago ( all linked on previous page ) The huge explosion at a Japanese USA military base, the various train derailments and explosions ripping through America, The total blackouts occurring simultaneously in major capital cities across the globe, the intense and highly visible economic warfare and unprecedented military posturing. Surely ( perhaps not all ) but surely these are acts of covert warfare before the outbreak of open and total war !

Two devices have been found by investigators near a petrochemical plant in southern France, after explosions caused fires at two tanks in the early hours of Tuesday.

The blasts went off at the Berre L'Etang almost simultaneously 500m (1,600ft) apart.

Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said it was a criminal act but the motive was unknown.

At least one data center has experienced disruptions following an explosion in a basement of a high-rise in downtown Los Angeles Thursday evening.

While the cause of the explosion is still being investigated, the Los Angeles Fire Department suspects it had something to do with a generator in the basement. The blast at 811 West Wilshire Blvd. took out an on-site power station, leaving 12 buildings in the area without electricity, according to the local utility.

The explosion interrupted connectivity on network infrastructure operated by Level 3 Communications, which serves a lot of data center users in the area, Craig VerColen, a spokesman for LogMeIn, a company whose data center went dark as a result of the incident, said via email. Level 3 issued a statement saying its technicians were working to restore services.

While President Obama was delivering his latest dismissive remarks about the Keystone XL pipeline project, a 103-car train loaded with crude oil was on fire outside the town of Galena, Illinois. Another oil train was on fire in northern Ontario, the third accident in the area in less than a month. And officials in West Virginia were continuing to clean up from a massive explosion in a train carrying oil from the Bakken oil fields in North Dakota. Mr. Obama’s message: pipelines are dangerous

Maybe the chemical plants and weapons stockpiles could suggest that sort of thing, but most of them are related to the energy sector.

For the ones related to energy production, a far more likely explanation would be insurance fraud. We're probably at the beginning of a ~10-15 year low part of a long term cycle in energy prices. The 1980s an 1990s have come back around again. It probably won't last as long as it did last time, but it could last maybe a decade or so.

Thus, they want to shut down some of the less profitable production. OPEC basically wants to get its members to do exactly that, i.e. they all agree to shut down some of their production to reduce supply to prop up market prices for their energy products (oil, gas, etc).

Of course, because of the shale boom, the US is a major energy producer again. So perhaps you really do have a little of both. Maybe some of this is countries are shutting down the 'excess production' of competitors rather than their own.

It's looking bleak now Op.

I hope you are wrong, nobody wants war.

KABUL A series of loud explosions were felt across the western Afghan city of Herat late on Monday, media reports said, with photos posted online showing a large fire apparently at a natural gas terminal lighting the night sky.
It was not immediately clear whether the explosions were an accident of the result of an attack in Afghanistan's third largest city. There were no initial reports of casualties.

More of the same... industrial sabotage events really ramping up. Everyone still believe after the frequency and timing of these key infrastructure explosions are mere accidents ?

I have also noticed that a search on google along the lines of Tianjin attack or Tianjin kinetic weapon brings up next to no new hits on google where in the days shortly after the blast the same search would yield hundreds of hits ? Does anyone find that strange ?

Noranda, based in Franklin, Tennessee, is an aluminum producer with six plants in the U.S. and one on Jamaica. The Missouri plant is the company's primary aluminum smelter. The company's website says the plant produces about 263,000 metric tons of primary aluminum annually, roughly 15 percent of all U.S. aluminum production as of 2009.

I will repost part of my first post so as to remind people that these types of facilities are targeted in times of intense conflict.

"During wartime, one of the most effective weapons in any country’s arsenal is sabotage: attacking the war engine itself by crippling key supplies, manufacturing, strategic locations and even logistic routes.

Saboteurs are not always an obvious and visible enemy. Many are underground agents, unconnected to official military authorities. More often than not, though, they have been trained and unofficially sanctioned by intelligence agencies or senior members of the armed forces.

The German government turned to sabotage during World War I in an attempt to thwart U.S. trade with Europe. German agents working on U.S. soil targeted munitions factories and plants producing goods to be shipped to help the Allied troops on the battlefields of Europe.

Throughout 1916 a number of mysterious fires and explosions broke out but none as brazen as the attack on Black Tom Island, a 15-minute ferry ride from the southern tip of Manhattan.

On July 30, 1916, German agents set fire to a complex of warehouses and ships to halt the movement of supplies to Europe. The explosion rocked New York City, windows shattered in downtown Manhattan and the noise was heard as far away as Maryland. The property damage was estimated at $20 million (around $377 million today).

At the time authorities downplayed the incident and many ordinary New Yorkers were unaware they were under attack, despite the continued strikes on strategic facilities.

A few months later in January 1917 a fire at the Kingsland munitions factory in New York destroyed 1.3 million artillery shells. In March there was an explosion at the U.S. Navy Yard at Mare Island, California, involving barges filled with munitions, killing 6 and injuring 31.

While the attacks were aimed at forcing the United States to back out, they instead ended up being a significant factor in the eventual deployment of U.S. troops to Europe.

By World War II sabotage had evolved and become more sophisticated. Nations organized agencies who were trained to attack military targets and disable the enemy’s war effort.

Britain used sabotage to great effect by establishing the Special Operations Executive (SOE). One of their primary functions was the sabotage of enemy equipment, installations and means of production.

They ran secret training schools, where saboteurs were schooled in creating chaos and specially trained in unarmed combat and demolition, handling weapons and explosives.

One of the most successful SOE stings was Operation Jaywick where agents disguised as Malay fisherman snuck into Singapore Harbour and sunk 30,000 tons of Japanese shipping.

Anti-German resistance and partisan movements were also active saboteurs. By the end of 1942 around 200,000 partisans were attacking factories, military installations, railroads and bridges. Many of their actions were minor forms of sabotage, such as disabling German telephone lines.

Others were more advanced such as Groupe G, a sabotage team headed by scientists and engineers at the University of Brussels. They organized attacks on the Belgian transportation network, particularly railroads and waterways, electricity supplies and telephone communications."

History repeats ( sure not ALL of these are sabotage or direct attacks but surely some are too !

All these explosions in my opinion could very well be sabotage, how far is this going to go is the real question. . . .

China – Another powerful explosion at a chemical factory is being reported in Dongying city, Shandong province. The explosion occurred just a few hours ago and details are few.

Reports on social-media describe the chemical plant blast as being felt and shattering glass at 50 KM away. Initial reports state that the fire is under control. We will be following the situation and update when more information is available.

This is the third major chemical factory explosion in less than three weeks. Beginning with the massive blast in Tainjin that happened on August 12th and claimed over 100 lives, injuring over 700 people. The second incident on August 23rd also occurred in Shandong.

ANOTHER ONE ? my theory gathers strength yet again.

Another huge blast at a chemical facility has reportedly occurred in the Chinese province of Shandong. The explosion, located in an industrial zone in Lijin, Dongying City, happened late on Monday, China's People's Daily reported.

The blast was so massive it could be seen and heard from a great distance. A chemical factory is believed to have been in the area. According to People's Daily, the blast happened at around 11:30pm local time (3:30pm GMT).

SHATTERING GLASS 50 KILOMETRES AWAY !!! This blast was massive again. We are at covert war !
