Weird Shit-O-Meter at 11

Greetings Me Droogs and Droogettes!
Merry Merry Happy Happy and appreciate all the wishes from you degenerate Bastitidges.  Now... lets get down to biddness vis-a-vis the Bombing in Nashville.  Thus far, intel gathered and released:

1) Happened on 2nd Ave in Nashville.  I know it very well.  It's the main, (or leastways was) drag for the partying scene for the 101st back when I was in.  The Hooters that got obliterated?  Pulled many a fine young thing out of there back in the day, and got tore up from the floor up there.  My unnastanding is it's still a big time go-to for fine food and night life, though it's been severely impacted as Nashville's been exceptionally retarded via CoronaChan.  However, 0630 am... no one oot and aboot there at that time...

2) It was an RV.  Drove up and parked right across from the AT&T Datacenter.  Which subsequently went tits up when the bomb went ke-blammo.

3) The RV apparently broadcast a warning via PA before it detonated.  The sound of it was a pre-recorded female auto-tune from the sound of it warning that people needed to evacc before it blew.

4) -Someone- called the fuzz and said a shooting was going down right before the bomb went ka-boom.  Draw in law enforcement like Eric Rudolph?  Either way, the warning got the cops to back the fuck off before it blew, so no losses there 'cept from the sound of it, overpressure and minor shrapnel wounds.

5) When it blew, it, from the vidya I've seen was NOT an AMFO (ammonium nitrate) Timmy McVeigh style bomb... hell, the bomb that took out OKC wasn't AMFO either, no matter what they say.  Another subject for another time.  AMFO, while kinetic is a 'slower explosion' if'n you will... you actually need a bomb to detonate AMFO properly.  This vid I've seen... man, like BOOM instant mode.

6) The pictures of the remains and such.. blast damage and whatnot... Very dirty... lots of carbon.  Lots of -stuff- that isn't part and parcel of the explosions and VBIEDs I've dealt with.  No obvious signs of Propane tanks either.  Propane IEDs usually leave some obvious tanklike residue.  They blow, but those tanks are motherfucking tough and hold up really well even when blowing up.  Look at some of the archived pics of some of the bombs that went off in Iraq... the propane tanks usually split and rupture into halves or split and stay in one piece, becoming a fast-moving LARGE chunk of shrapnel on their own.  They -don't- however blow up like grenades... the skin is too thick by design to stay pressurized. 
Whatever IT was though totally and utterly vaped the RV 
My call?  A Metric Fuckton of Black Powder or home-made PETN or the like.

7) No suspects -yet- And yet they have a pic of the RV with the driver?  And no close up of the driver yet?  What with the abilities that computer enhancement has these days?  That means they do not want to ID the driver yet.  

8) One last observation from the pics... Cars immediately near the center of the blast, obliterated.  Cars half a block up? See the pic below:
The Toyota right there has the windshield have a hole blown in it but NOT completely blown out.  The Suburban a block in the other direction?  Looks fine and in other pics, it's literally not damaged at all.  However, the blast is very confined... almost directional 
Trees at the det-point, splinters and shredded.  Trees 20 feet away? shrapnel damage/blast damage but still have most of their branches.  Hell the leaves are still on a few of them.
The red building in both pics I'm poasting... that's the AT&T relay center.  Took the brunt.
Comms got taken out hard
As well as the airport's Air Traffic Control grid.  
So... to me?  That's a very specific attack
Communication Decapitation

So, a puzzle within a conundrum.
I ain't no expert by far.  I have however been around enough VBIEDs and IEDs and the aftermath to say this was a really BIG fucking ka-boom, with multiple layers of safeties built in, with the PA system being one I've never heard of before.  The closest I can think of is that the IRA used to call the news before a bomb went off to allow time for people to get clear if it was a civilian target.  This?  A fucking PA playing music between the "The vehicle will self destruct in -X- minutes, Please evacuate the area"

Just who in the fuck does that?
I mean talk about the most polite and careful terrorists in the world.
Good on 'em
But then

What was the real objective?
'Cos the Fibbies are going to lie and obfuscate
The Fuzz are going to do the song and dance
It's all bullshit
That ain't conspiracy theory.  It's fucking fact

As a buddy of mine's Italian Grandda used to say, "No matter how thin you slice a turd, it's still shit."
And this 'un here?

Gonna be jazzed that it was "White Supremacy" even if it was Da'Quan Dindunuffin the Third who was behind the wheel... one of those African-Caucasians prolly.  Or mebbe a White-Negroid.  Either way, they found pieces parts in the AO... the DNA IF they ever tell us the real deal would be interesting.  BUT

The Feds always lie.
It's the default setting
So, make of it what you will, but to me?
An old "Iraq/Affy Hand" who's been there done that?
My Weird Shit-O-Meter is pegged at an eleven
Literally... my shit sez "Does not compute, Error 503, Failure to Load"
And that bothers me
On a very significant level
Cause I'm the best planner and out-of-the-box wargamer/planner I know... there's a couple others, whom I'ma gonna hit up in a day or two for consult.  Dis shit is unpresented.  A very specific target, the AT&T Comms relay point.  A very polite bomber who kindly warns everyone to GTFO now before the bomb goes off.  
Things that make you go Hmmmn indeed.
So, gotta cogitate on this 'un here and get some more professional opinions.
Like I said, this un here is a first as far as I know

    1. What a f*^#% moronic response. But I guess it’s kinda realistic to assume it’s the right that did this. With the building’s ties to the Dominion servers used in the elections. And if the left had done it there wouldn’t have been a warning to evacuate the area.

  4. Propane cylinders by law must have a 3.5 to 1 safety factor. So that means during the design calculations you divide the steels yield strength by 3.5.
    So if the yield in the book is 70,000 PSI then you use 20,000 in your design calculations. That is why propane tank bombs always have lots of material left over.

  7. If AT&T was the target (and there wasn't something else in that building that we don't know about), here's what was knocked out per the outage map from the blast:

    https://www.gannett-cdn.com/presto/2020/12/25/PNAS/ea1df257-fe48-46b4-9220-c28272d098e0-Xmas_Internet_outage.jpg

    So, Nashville obviously... but also hits Huntsville, Chatanooga, Knoxville, and looks like Lexington and a bit in Atlanta as well. Disrupted wireless phone, internet and 911 from 6:30 AM until 7 PM or so in the affected locations. So the big question is, as always... cui bono?

    Come to think of it, it IS Christmas, so maybe Hans Greuber is up to his old tricks? Lord knows a twelve-hour general state-wide comms blackout would be a Hell of a cover for a smash-and-grab job. So I guess the question is, what (or who?) is worth smashing and/or grabbing in that neck of the woods?

  9. You're right in saying the feds lie. ANYTHING they tell us about this is AUTOMATICALLY suspect. The fact that there was ample warning however to minimize deaths and injuries is a major factor. NOT towelhead terrorism. They WANT dead bodies. Not likely to be commie/leftist either. They simply don't give a rats ass about dead bodies piling up UNLESS it harms their agenda. Odds are this was a targeted attack aimed at the AT&T building....and there are LOTS of these 'call centers' scattered across the country and they are critical to telecommunications. And the attempt to minimize damages means that the person(s) behind it aren't ready to shed blood.....yet. This was a message. Aimed DIRECTLY at
    Big Tech and the government.

  10. There are a few sites that have pics of the RV driving in, not the best resolution but I sure as hell can't see any indication of a driver. Fully automated cars are a long way off but turning about anything with power steering into a over sized RC car isn't that hard.

    1. ...and if you *really* want to make the Deep State folks soil their britches: How about a 'everybody that can get an old RV moving' - get it to the DC Beltway and do a couple of laps on the 6th, maybe occasionally making taking an off-ramp towards the center of town for a little 'sight seeing' or to do a little shopping, dining, or refueling. Any that break down on the shoulders of the road will double their stress. Making the greater DC area waist deep in RV's will give'em a nervous breakdown.

  13. Until the AT&T relay center was thrown into the mix, It seemed plausible to me that it is a Covid Warrior... Probably a former eco-terrorist that had no "in-progress" subdivisions to burn down, so he figured to branch out and save humanity from the WuFlu by blowing up a bar district on Christmas, when nobody was there.

  15. The AT&T comma hub shut down may have been aimed the D.H.S. Intel fusion center that's located in Nashville. Just a thought.

  16. "What with the abilities that computer enhancement has these days?"

    Can't enhance what's not there, and surveillance cameras aren't high-resolution, and the angle can be crap to see through a windshield. What you've seen on TV is fiction, written by people who know script structure, but not optics, information theory, or have any real-world experience.

    And the data center wasn't "taken out hard" -- the building looks fine, and it was hours later before there were any outages. Apparently it did lose power, but switched to natural gas generators. There was concern over a gas leak, so the gas was shut off to the neighborhood, and THAT caused the outages.

  18. The bomb also took out 911 communications over several states. I do wonder if the truck fire on I-24, 100 miles north of Nashville, on 12-23 was in someway connected. The truck burned hot enough to destroy the concrete roadway. Enough damage that it will require a complete rebuild, not a quicky patch.

  19. Minor correction: you mean ANFO not AMFO: Ammonium Nitrate/Fuel Oil.

  20. As someone who is not familiar with the tech aspects and resulting destructive patterns of explosives and IEDs, could it have been tannerite? I know it detonates by gunshot, but what about a small charge of TNT, or similar, as a detonator and a larger quantity of tannerite as the main? Using that would certainly give the ATFeces an excuse to ban it for civilian use.

  21. In the mid 1980s, Cuba began to allow flights from the USA to Cuba via the Bahamas and Mexico. The anti-communist Cubans in South Florida took a dim view of the travel agencies that handled the arrangements. A method to show their displeasure was the near-simultaneous bombings of several of these travel agencies in South Florida. (Same night, indicating coordination and professionalism.)

    The method of attack was simple and ingenious. A big plastic commercial-grade trash bin on wheels was placed outside the store-front windows of the targets. Looks innocent enough at night. A simple camping gas bottle was opened at the bottom, a plumber's candle was taped near the top. The lid of the bin kept the candle from blowing out, or the rising gas from blowing away, and the lid hid the candle light from view. But the lid did not totally seal the bin, so the candle would keep burning. The rising gas reaches the lit candle, and BOOM.

    These simple gas bombs totally gutted the travel agencies, blowing out their interior walls and ceilings. The businesses on either side were heavily damaged also. (This happened without the greater effect of the gas bomb trash bin being located in a tight alley with walls on either side, that is, no "tamping" effect to amplify the blast wave.)


    Now move from Miami 1980s to Nashville 2020 and do some SWAG extrapolation, from an 80 or 100 gallon commercial-size wheeled plastic trash bin, to a pretty big RV. The Nashville bomber/s didn't detonate a propane tank full of liquid propane, he/they just let the bottles fill the entire RV with a thick cloud of gas. The trash bins that totally wrecked the travel agencies contained about a max of 10 cubic feet of gas when they reached the lit candle. What are the dimensions of the interior of an RV like the one in Nashville? Call it 20L X 8W X 6H just for a rough calculation, ignoring the cab area. I come up with 960 cubic feet, call it a thousand with the cab. 10 cubic feet in a trash bin placed outside the windows of the travel agencies totally wrecked wrecked them, ceilings and walls blown out, neighbor businesses heavily damaged. The bin bomb is 10 cubic feet of gas. The RV bomb is a thousand cubic feet of gas.

    No crater tells me it's not even ANFO (Ammonium Nitrate/Fuel Oil), which is about 40% as powerful as TNT, depending on variables, which is given an explosive factor of 1.0. (C-4 is 1.4) Even an ANFO bomb would have cratered the street. IMHO this was "just" a pressure bomb. I'm guessing it was simple flammable gas released into a sealed container (the RV with all outlets sealed) and ignited remotely or on a timer.

    For sure the feds already know all this. They are probably freaking out because they will not be able to keep it a secret how easy it is to make a rolling gas bomb. The purpose of this bomb might have been "educational," just to show how simple and powerful a mobile gas bomb can be to create and use.

    2. It really depends on the container, in this instance, the RV. Throw up a steel curtain on one half, and it will direct most of the energy to the other side. It has more to do with the shell of the bomb than the actual charge.

  22. Why is there no crater in the street? Why is there a hole blown in the side and basement of the ATT building adjacent to the sidewalk, about 10 feet from the curb. Why is there no evidence of the RV, not even the axles and motor? Why is there a video of a directed energy weapon visible in a video on the 'net. Why is there no video of the RV just before it exploded, if it really did and was really there? Why next to the ATT building? Why the polite warning to leave the area before the blast? Why the gunfire beforehand? This is the strangest terrorist act witnessed to date. False Flag or what is the purpose?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well some of the things you assert here are not in evidence.
      There is no video of a Directed Energy weapon....its a video from a security camera with low light capability. Its a digital camera and when the light from the blast over saturates the sensor it takes it a few seconds to recover after it goes complete white out.
      The "gunfire" was just a recording of gunfire along with the warning to evacuate. It was a way to get people to move away from the blast. People may not follow the directions of the voice saying "if you can hear this message, you need to evacuate the area" but if they think someone is shooting that will be more likely to move.
      So from the looks of this at 10K feet it looks like someone wanted to damage this AT&T Central Office (which is a VERY difficult task, they are hardened on purpose like a bunker) but didnt want innocent people caught in the mix. So they played the recording to get people to leave. I had thought the bomb to be Propane myself, and it may in fact be a mixed device with a shaped charge setting off an RV filled with Propane gas. Maybe the RV was parked over one of the manholes outside of the office. I have been into several of them and I recall that most had a junction that was actually OUTSIDE the building but under the street where there were major fiber optic and copper cable routes with Conduit coming into the frames in the basement. Much less protected than the building itself. SO while we have not seen a crater we may not be able to see the damage done to conduit underground in a vault space.

    Interesting that the effect reached several other state. Any other military bases affected. It would disrupt comms of any watchers.

  26. A very polite bomber? Maybe the data center was the secondary objective, and the primary objective was to keep the cops busy for a while, and damage or terror wasn't the intent at all.

    There are at least two groups at war here, and probably some third parties looking to get some temporary advantage from the chaos. We should probably expect more weird kinetic ops that don't make sense to us, because we don't understand the motives or opportunities of the actors, or even exactly who they are.

    Trump is damaging his and our enemies, this is probably those enemies striking back in a way that makes sense to them. ATT data center means NSA colo, maybe the secondary intent was to hinder NSA from detecting cheating in the upcoming GA election, while the primary intent was to send a message to the Trump side to that the globohomo faction is going to start blowing shit up when Trump starts his second term.

  27. What if the RV "evaporated" because there never was an RV? No engine, no frame, no pieces and parts of insulation blown everywhere. There are two ventilation shafts that are blown out at the center of the damage on the sidewalk. You are way more experienced at this than I am but the idea that this was from an RV doesn't line up to me.

  28. Thoughts, not necessarily in any order of opinion.
    -is a "how to" demonstration for purposes of how to take out infrastructure with minimal casualties so as not to tick off large swaths of the populace.
    -was aimed at the spy nodes at att as a "warning" to the deep state
    -was a trial run by uncertain side in the upcoming festivities
    -was aimed at first responders,, failed to kill them as intended.
    -the supposedly missing gina haspel was in the RV, alive or already dead, it is her remains that have been found,, to be ID by DNA . I know, crazy,, but these are crazy times.
    -false flag by deep state, if so seems to lack obvious easy and early connection to the "rignt"
    -as noted by previous commenter, is a how to at how easy this can be done.
    -why was the mayor yukking it up and telling jokes at the presser, weird? is he that effed up?
    -was simply a test to see how far this internet "node" reaches. what all went out? reportedly was hundreds of miles away the effect.

  30. so far as the RV remains, RVs are pretty much just plywood, plastic and aluminum. aside from the major frame and powertrain components i wouldn't expect anything to be left of it in an explosion like this. maybe the refrigerator would still be intact?

Don't think that directed energy weapons leave a visible cloud of smoke. Been working with high power RF since early 70's. Even lightning doesn't tend to produce smoke when it strikes.

    2. The visible trail would be due to sudden heating near the destination end of the route. Sort of like a contrail, it almost immediately dissipates. So yes, the energy came from above.

  36. Another possibility: ATF is forced to retreat/retrench on braces. Out of desperation, a need to continue to be "needed" they grab an RV from their impound yard, remove the VIN numbers, wire up some boom-boom with an audible warning. Throw a dart at a map, toss in a no longer useful CI as a convenient DNA/proof of dead lone white guy. In a few days/weeks there will a big break in the case, thanks to the tireless work of the ATF. There will also be a small group of unlikely but unfortunate morons picked up as accomplices. The FBI gets to strut and say "We helped prevent more domestic terrorism" The ATF gets to say " Look what good boys we've been, president Biden/Harris. We're still relevant, and drastically underfunded."
