Strange posturing on some of the victims.

Two terrorists walk in together. Only one seems to be armed.

That overhead video of the gunmen shooting into a group of people in a corner is bizarre. A couple of them seem unscathed.

Chinky/Russky "multipolarity" can actually boast having more Disneylands than the EU (Shanghai and Hong Kong in case you're wonderring) and all the staged shitfuckery you'd find at the USEUNATO terrorists' home turf. The way it's always been.

I just to joke that these narcissistic Overlords used to sit down at night to play poker with our money. That's why the stockmarkets close at 4 pm in NYC. Of course, I was just joking. But now this joke may not be so far off. Except they play with lives.

Seymour Hersh -one of the few real journalists on the planet and one who rarely jumps on his computer in order to be first- claims the Americans warned Russia, as required.

Russia ignored the warning...just like another group on 7 October.

DUTY TO WARN: "When invoked, they require specific information about an imminent terrorist attack to be forwarded to vulnerable and threatened nations, including Russia and Ukraine.

This American intelligence community passed a warning of a possible attack involving religious extremists from Pakistan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan eighteen days in advance of the Moscow concert hall assault that killed at least 137 people and injured more than one hundred. Such a warning invariably comes from intercepts from the National Security Agency and agent reports from the Central Intelligence Agency.

The Americans did their job but the Russian intelligence community, heeding its boss, did not. President Vladimir Putin publicly called the warning “provocative statements” three days before the attack, and the Russian security services ignored it. They bear responsibility, in the view of American intelligence experts, for failing to do what was necessary to protect the concertgoers."

The Americans did their job, but not quite, because apparently they did not inform the Russians via the normal, official channel. That is not to say the Russians did not or should not have known, they did know, but it is clear the Americans also want to put themselves "in the clear".

Indeed, and they were one of the major organizers of the failed 2020 regime change operation in Belarus, they were showing how to attack police officers. So it's not a trustworthy source.

Also, you can see men in blue uniforms all the time, everywhere in Russia. It doesn't mean they're undercover agents at all.

What I find more interesting is how the building was destroyed.

The building being destroyed is the key to this operation in my view. As it certainly did not need to be destroyed to garner more outrage.

"The cameraman—who has yet to utter a single word, and has been calmly walking around this whole time—gets on the escalator and takes a ride to the second floor. Does the cameraman run up the escalator? No, he does not run. Why would he run?"

I would have done the exact same thing: by running you attract attention, better walk slowly.

It's obvious that he is laying down on the escalator in order to be an as small as possible target, better to do that instead of standing up straight or running. Next time you're taking an escalator, have a look: there will be some low metal part of the structure that might offer some protection, but the side walls are usually made out of glass: zero protection and you'll be visible as a target. Laying down is the best option IMHO.

Question: did those 2 guys, standing near the pillar and calmly chatting to each other, survive?

Expand full comment

Sure, yeah, just walk slowly pretending to read a newspaper or something so as not to get noticed. Brilliant.

Expand full comment

This is why I think it's quite possible this is double fakery -- The massacre itself was real and this video is well-crafted fakery produced to make the massacre appear to have been faked. If an intelligence agency can do one, it can do the other.

The motive is clear. To throw shade on SBU and CIA involvement in the real massacre. And to make Putin doubly bad, of course. Anyway, this post had made for a fun, sleuthy morning.

Welcome to the post truth world

Expand full comment

Exactly this. The FSB men in blue could just as easily be GUR men in blue. Nexta, the source of the Twitter footage of the men in blue acting together is a notorious pro Ukrainian propaganda outlet, quite possibly part of the British 77th Brigade influence ops outfit.

The massacre was real but they released some footage showing use of blanks and maybe had some actors planted to run the 'FSB faked the whole thing' story. The PSYOPS in this war are off the scale. Congratulations on having a mind that can wrap itself round it all.

Much else about this attack is odd too. Why the obscured faces in the photo of the four with the IS flag and in the POV footage from inside the hall (voice distortion too). Why do the shirts on the guys when they were caught not quite match the ones in the flag photo (thought to a casual observer they do as they are the same color). The whole thing reeks of an intelligence op.

Definitely! One could even claim it was a "nasty surprise." Thanks for the additional info. The odor indeed reeks of the Spooksville Farm.

After I saw the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mb1O-6QyJNM I would rule out US/Ukrainian fingerprints. (Use auto-translate option if necessary.)

"I think most of you already know that the Russian population is relatively war-weary, and most people are beginning to understand that the war against Ukraine is actually a war against the white race.

That means that the collective Jew started a war there to destroy the white race, and there are now a lot of opponents of the war in Russia, and of course they had to, or of course want to, prolong this war.

And through this very attack, the secret service ensured that real war hysteria broke out in Russia again."

"I’m not even being sarcastic. Maybe these people suffered from deer-in-headlights syndrome."

I think that this is the case. As you mentioned, Russians frequently use "colourful language" but this is under normal circumstances. I guess when they are under life-death stress they display this stoic attitude which is very typical for Nordic/cold climate countries.

When the initial videos came out, I was quite impressed at how calmly most people stayed and how they walked out of the building.

Perhaps most Russians haven't been brainwashed yet by the emotional screaming you see in all Hollywood movies?

Observant analysis, but....

People are weird, strange, not logical, unpredictable, and most of all, not like you!

I've been in quite a few stressful/dangerous situations, with other people. Also, there are many, many videos of shootings, accidents, disasters, on the internet these days. You can watch them.

From my own experience, and observations, none of the anomalies you point out are outrageous or unusual.

Normal people walk around in a daze, in their own private reality, oblivious to their surroundings, or misinterpreting what's happening around them. They do stupid things, and make stupid mistakes, in stressful situations, or in normal situations, too.

So, while your observations are observant, you're giving normal people way too much credit.

I've imagined what would I do if I were in a same situation and with that background the behavior of people in the video seems reasonable. The last guy standing in the video (the one at the end) appears to be a bit of an idiot - I would have ran and hid by then - but in general the behavior seems about on par. I wonder if the uniformed guy with the dog had a gun? If he didn't then getting the heck out of dodge would have been sensible. The yellow jacket guy, if he wasn't a perp, was probably out of options and was just chilling there hoping to God Allmighty they forget about him. The two guys chattin' it up were probably also out of options. Depends on the overall environment but if they have no cover to jump to, their only option might have been to just stand behind the collumn and hope for the best. Might chat it up while they're at it, to pass the time. Easier to die in company.

The video also teaches us not to build barricades or hide behind collumns. The attacker will just walk around and shoot you. If anyhow possible GTFO.
