The Russians Completely Disabled A U.S. Guided Missile Destroyer Earlier This Year

In April of this year, the USS Donald Cook was disabled while on patrol in the Black Sea by an unarmed Russian bomber.

A Russian Su-24 buzzed the ship and “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,” reports the Voltaire Network.

The guided missile destroyer represents the cutting edge of U.S. military technology. It carries Tomahawk cruise missiles with a range of up to 2,500 kilometers, missiles capable of carrying nuclear explosives. The ship carries 56 Tomahawk missiles in standard mode and 96 missiles in attack mode. It is also equipped with the latest Aegis Combat System.

  1. I have said it before. The EMF weapons are going to totally disable our electronics. That means weapons going off spontaneously.
    It didn’t happen this time. But it is only a matter of time before nuclear weapons will be extremely dangerous to anyone handling them.
    The only way around this is to have EMF shields in place. I don’t know of any EMF shields currently deployed. Not sure they exist.

    It also means burned starter motors, alternators, and anything with a motor on it.
    The only way a maximum weapon of this sort would work would be far away in space. But that is all ready known by our Defense Department.
    Treaties are so much toilet paper for countries without ethics behind them.
    And we have several treaties in place. Violation of which is a matter of what is convenient at the time.
    It is very foolish to depend on any one weapon in our defense of the country. What happens when they disable an Air Craft Carrier then sink it? Because that would happen if they decided to go to war with us. 1 Billion dollars down the drain in 15-30 minutes time?
    The only effective weapons will be ones dependent on speed. That means destroyers, carriers, and other ships deployed might be obsolete before we even build them.

  2. This story is probably disinformation. Disabling a military ship of another country is bordering on being an act of war. I have a hard time believing Russia would do something like that. Equally absurd is the idea that Russia would disclose a tactical advantage over a potential enemy during a time of peace, thereby giving them time to compensate for their newly discovered weakness. Also, once soldiers enlist, they are essentially owned by the military until their tour of duty expires. You just do not resign or try to resign… the military is not like corporate america (read the full article and you will see what I’m talking about).
