Now that some time has gone by since that freighter rammed one of our destroyers, and reports on what happened here faded very quickly from the media with no explanation whatever of how this seemingly impossible event could have occurred, I feel it’s time to offer my take on it.

First, the complete silence from the Navy, our government and all the media about this is a flaming red flag by itself. Whenever everyone totally clams up, you know it’s a big story. The thing is, that destroyer is equipped with all the latest in radar detection gear, sonar gear, and every protection and warning device that currently exists in Naval technology. Something that big coming that close would have set off automatic alarms all over the bride. Klaxons would have been roaring and clanging and red lights flashing, the noise would have been deafening. IT IS NOT POSSIBLE that they didn’t know that freighter was on a collision course UNLESS…

Unless all their electronics were rendered non-functional.

That the freighter deliberately rammed them is beyond doubt. This was a purposeful collision. So who owns the freighter? The Japanese do. It’s been called a Philippine freighter, but it’s not. It simply registered to the Philippines. Many maritime ships register to a nation that gives them the biggest tax breaks, as the Philippines do.

The cargo of that freighter and it’s destination are supposed to be public record, yet for some reason they are not.

So here’s what I think. The freighter was carrying something equivalent to EMP gear, some new technology that either made it invisible to electronic detection or that prevented electrical apparatus from functioning, and this was tested on that destroyer because of it’s many capabilities of detection. This test was carried out as a secret joint operation by the U.S. Navy and the Japanese government.

They allowed the actual collision to occur because they wanted to see if any alarm would be raised at any time, and none ever was, making this a highly successful test. As for the dead sailors and the damage to the ship, that’s considered collateral damage, especially considering the huge value of a successful test of this new cyber-weapon.

So why use a freighter? Why not just have the ship’s gear tested with everyone aware of what was going on? Set up the new technology on a ship and approach the destroyer to see if it worked? Why set up a scenario that makes it all appear to be an accident, even if a really bizarre, unlikely one? Because no doubt it had already been tested extensively and now they wanted to see what happened under real conditions and besides, people talk, and with technology like this, you wouldn’t want any of those sailors to know about it. Further, you want to test it under extreme conditions and what’s more extreme than not being able to detect a ship twice as large and a third as fast as your own on a clear night?

I do kinda worry that one of these days, with one of my little sleuthing stories, like this one, I may end up with some guys in suits at my door, at best, or a sudden dirt nap at worst. But caution, unfortunately, has never been my best suit.

    dead sailors!!!!!!?????

    collateral damage???????


  2. Black Sheep says:

    7 sailors were killed in the collision.

  3. Ernesto Ribeiro says:


    American sailors ???

  4. Black Sheep says:

    Yes, American sailors. You haven’t read about that in the news? When you’re in the military your life belongs to the government. In this particular case it looks like lives were sacrifice in order to have a truly authentic test of this new technology but still keep it secret. Secrecy is more important with something like this than the lives of a few young men, to our government. Very few people read this blog so the secret is still more or less safe, providing you don’t go posting it on other blogs.
    Anyway, I have no proof of what I’m saying other than the facts themselves.

    For a TEST???!!!

    It is INTOLERABLE!!!

  6. Black Sheep says:

    In the first place, I don’t know that what I described even took place. It’s just how it looks to me. This may prove to be some impossible accident that somehow happened, though I don’t think so.

    As for sacrificing men by the military, that’s been going on for thousands of years. That’s nothing new and nothing to get excited about if it’s true.

    I’m not sure that you understand the subject of this article, Ernesto. Consider what it would mean if we had a device that would stop the enemy’s electronic equipment from working. That would allow us to shut down all their radar, sonar, everything.

    What would you do to keep such a thing secret?

  7. Ernesto Ribeiro says:

    Yeah. It makes sense.

    It explains a top secret issue.

    Secret mass destruction weapon.

    Well, you are the marine veteran here.

    So, that’s a matter of thousands of years.
