[ZurichTimes] This story is going global as we report on it right now. The Seth Rich Murder Investigation has now morphed into a cat and mouse search for Depleted Uranium (DU) from one Shipping Container Line to another.
What the Boys from Crowdsource the Truth investigation are now saying is that they now feel “vindicated” because their reporting about the Maersk Memphis from couple of weeks ago which we reported on is now playing out.
Shipping Ports in India, Europe and other locations are all down because of an alleged Ransonware Attack called Petya.

They believe that the DU on the Maersk Memphis in the Port of Charleston, South Carolina from two weeks ago is directly connected to this Ransomware Attack. They believe this cyber hack is meant to coverup the meta data as in the paperwork and any traces of DU that might have been left in any of these ports. These ports according to Crowdsource the Truth are now using “paper” based procedures to operate.
[Washington Post] On Wednesday, Danish shipping giant A.P. Moller-Maersk said it was working to restore its operations a day after being hit by the cyberattack.
“We have contained the issue and are working on a technical recovery plan with key IT partners and global cyber security agencies,” Maersk, which handles one in every seven containers shipped worldwide, said in a stock exchange announcement.
The Copenhagen-based group said APM Terminals, an international container terminal operating company owned by Maersk, was affected “in a number of ports.” But it said its vessels with Maersk Line were “maneuverable, able to communicate and crews are safe.”
[Fortune] With a fleet of more than 600 container vessels, Maersk is the world’s biggest shipping company with a market share of around 16%. The company handles around 25% of all containers shipped on the key Asia-Europe route.
Maersk’s port operator APM Terminals was also hit, with Dutch broadcaster RTV Rijnmond reporting that 17 shipping container terminals run by APM Terminals had been hacked, including two in Rotterdam and 15 in other parts of the world.
There is now a real fear and word of Article 5 of the NATO Charter being invoked as Russia will likely be blamed for this Cyber Attack and then we are in a full blown World War III scenario is three easy steps. The timing of this Cyber Attack is very odd since next week Trump will be flying to Germany for a G-20 Summit. What will be discussed and will Russia again be Demonized and Targeted for more Sanctions and Penalties.
Because now the NATO Alliance with the Saudi Wahhabi Sword Dancing Alliance of 50 Arab Nations is clear – attack Russia and its allies (Qatar, Iran, Turkey, Syria) in one move which is to cut off their economic lifeline. Their economic lifeline is the old Gas and Oil “Pipelines” to Europe story. The American NeoCons have decided to make a play for that Oil and Gas market by forcing Germany and other nations like Poland to buy from them rather than Russia. It is a grand stategy to economically imperial Russia and bring her to her knees. It may work or may not work, but the end result will be the same – War.
