New Proof the German Taurus Assault Plan Was Leaked by the US Air Power

Yves right here. It’s fairly an enormous declare that members of the US army would leak a recording of German generals scheming to strike Russia with Taurus missiles to Russia. However then once more, on condition that the US blew up the NordStream pipeline, it’s not as if the US regards Germany as something different {that a} state that must be pressured again into line when it acts too independently. So the half that looks like a stretch is just not the US taking aggressive motion towards Germany, however that we nonetheless have the connections (presumably army to army on the operational stage) that we may toss such a juicy merchandise over the wall.

Elements that favor this account embody stories that the army has tried to get the US political management to grasp that escalation towards Russia is a street to nowhere (in the event you preclude nuclear warfare) and that it might due to this fact need to sabotage this harmful scheme earlier than our hyper-aggressive political management acquired wind of it.S

Slightly fowl has materialized to sing that the document of the German generals discussing their plan to assault Russian targets with the Taurus missile was intercepted and leaked to the Russians by the People.

An enormous fowl, really. The phone convention of German Luftwaffe chief Normal Ingo Gerhartz (lead picture, left), one among his employees generals,  and two Luftwaffe lieutenant-colonels on February 19 was listened to by  US indicators intelligence after the primary assembly the Germans had with a brand new regional US Air Power (USAF) commander, Normal Kevin Schneider;  Schneider took command of the USAF Pacific Air Forces (PACAF) on February 9 after two and a half years in a senior employees submit on the Pentagon below Normal Charles Brown Jr. Brown was promoted from USAF chief to Chairman of the Joint Chiefs on October 1, 2023.  When Schneider left Brown’s employees, he took a promotion from lieutenant basic to four-star basic.

Schneider has by no means flown or staffed USAF operations towards Russia. He was in Singapore for the bi-annual Singapore Air Present to display what the USAF press workplace known as “the chance to sharpen ties with Singapore, display versatile plane functionality, allow engagement with overseas companions, and broaden energy projection.”    His agenda of conferences with different nation airforce officers is classed.

Intelligence protection of the airshow proceedings by the US, Russia, and China was particularly intense due to the participation within the present of plane from the warfighting states.  Russia, which has participated actively in previous Singapore airshows, didn’t take part formally this time.

The allegation that the Gerhartz teleconference was intercepted by the Russians originated from the Germans and British, and has been amplified in US and NATO media. The primary Russian report that it was US intelligence which picked up the decision after which leaked it, appeared in Moscow on March 4; click on to learn.

What has now surfaced is the audio document and transcript of the primary minutes of the teleconference, earlier than Gerhartz got here on the road.  In these 5 minutes, far more has been revealed by the three German officers than has been revealed by RT in Moscow on March 1, when the audio document and transcript started with Gerhartz’s look.

The total audio document in German, produced and revealed by RT Deutschland may be heard right here.   The publication date is March 1. The voices recorded at the start are these of Captain Hergang, who launched and managed the teleconference from Germany; Luftwaffe Brigadier Normal Frank Graefe, talking in his Singapore resort room and describing what he may see out his resort window; Luftwaffe Lieutenant Colonel Udo Fenske and Lieutenant Colonel Sebastian Florstedt, who’re talking from Germany.

A report and transcript in German, auto-translated into English, was revealed by Tobias Augenbraun in Dirk Pohlmann’s web platform Free21 on March 8.

The interpretation of the extra proof by Augenbraun and Pohlmann is that “apparently, the plans have been already offered to [USAF] Normal [Kenneth] Wilsbach [lead image, right] in October 2023, that are additionally the topic of additional dialogue… That is astonishing for the next purpose: All the remainder of the dialog is about easy methods to carry Taurus nearer to the Minister of Protection, Boris Pistorius… How can it’s that high German generals have already offered these plans to a US basic, a full 4 months… earlier than speaking about easy methods to talk about these plans with Boris Pistorius (Minister of Protection). One thing appears to have gone badly incorrect with the order right here. Is it regular to first speak to generals from different nations earlier than initiating your personal protection minister? Who’s in cost in Germany? Is the army uncontrolled?”

Augenbraun and Pohlmann consider the German operational plan mentioned with Wilsbach final October was the Gerhartz missile assault on Russia, and that the German Protection Ministry and the Chancellery have been unaware of it on the time.  This interpretation has been amplified in a report by a Brazilian who claims “right here apparently we now have a transparent lower case of high German army officers taking direct orders relating to an assault on Crimea – a part of the Russian Federation – immediately from American officers within the Pacific Air Forces.”

There isn’t a proof of this within the document of what the Germans really mentioned and meant.

Based on Graefe, “he’s [General Schneider] solely been in workplace for two weeks and he didn’t even know what I used to be speaking about. And that’s why I mentioned, I’d higher come by once more, as a result of that was October, after we offered all this to Wilsbach.” That is Graefe’s acknowledgement that Schneider, who was director of the USAF employees on the Pentagon from September 2021  – 5 months earlier than the Russian Particular Army Operation started – after which for 2 and a half years of the warfare, knew nothing in any respect concerning the German air assault plan for Russia. In Russian, that’s spelled вообще ничего.

As a substitute, there may be proof that Gerhartz and Graefe have been concealing their Russia-attack plan, not from their German political superiors, however from the People; and misrepresenting what they’ve been doing in Berlin in discussions with the 2 USAF generals, Wilsbach and Schneider. These two USAF generals are targeted on China as their enemy; they’ve by no means held a employees or operational command in Germany and towards Russia; their present instructions are restricted to the Asia-Pacific area concentrating on China.

Wilsbach was at his PACAF headquarters in Hawaii concentrating on Chinese language targets, when Graefe says on the tape that “we offered all this to Wilsbach.” “All this” was Luftwaffe planning towards China, not Russia – purpose for Chinese language army intelligence to have been retaining the Germans below shut surveillance in Singapore, together with the Russians.

The German reporters are unaware of the Russian press report figuring out the US because the supply of the leak. They haven’t realized that the primary 5 minutes of dialog reveal the particular curiosity which the USAF had in retaining Graefe below surveillance in Singapore. Additionally revealed now could be the USAF motive in making the Gerhartz warfare plan towards Russia public earlier than – not after — it had been agreed with Washington.

The timing of the newly disclosed Luftwaffe briefing of USAF Normal Wilsbach final October can also be revealing. It was then that the Pentagon was contemplating what to do subsequent within the Ukraine – and the ahead finances required — after the Zelensky-Zaluzhny counteroffensive had collapsed into the rout which the Pentagon had been anticipating because the Teixeira leaks of early 2023.

Briefly, on show right here is proof that after the Kiev regime capitulates, the Germans are the enemy the Russian Normal Employees know they need to defeat because the American generals search for a method of their very own to retreat.

Graefe and Schneider have been on talking phrases for a number of years – at the very least since 2019 when Graefe, a one-star basic, was the senior German army attaché in Washington and Schneider, with three stars, was the employees director for the USAF on the Pentagon. Even then and there, Schneider was a specialist on Asia, not Europe, not Russia.

There’s additionally extra audio and transcript on the finish of the unique document which was  not translated into Russian for the preliminary Moscow publication. This runs for 5 additional minutes.

Revealed for the primary time is the arrogance on the a part of the army officers that they’ll get Protection Minister Pistorius to do what they need, and that he’s as keen as they’re for his or her operations to look at the very least as competent because the British and French. “You’re man sufficient,” Gerhartz tells Graefe, “and the minister [Pistorius] is a very cool man to take care of anyway. So from there….. You’re the specialists. It was simply vital to me that we simply seem sober and don’t one way or the other smash show-stoppers into it [Crimean Bridge], which they merely don’t … that aren’t credible when different nations ship Storm Shadows [British] and SCALP [French].”

As for the People on the battlefield, Gerhartz concedes “we now have now surrendered [sic] 3 Patriot radars out of 12. There have been lengthy faces within the FlaRak [anti-aircraft missile group]. However for the time being they’re taking pictures down the planes and missiles that may’t hit us.”

In remaining phrases on the document, Gerhartz needs his males good luck of their briefing with Pistorius. “Make one thing for visualization – not an excessive amount of, all the time keep in mind: They arrive from a very totally different world, from a very totally different world of thought than we who’re speaking right here proper now. So… Sure, then that’s nice…All proper. Then I thanks for the spherical and need everybody completely happy work after which I hope to see you each in Berlin. And then you definately, Frank [Graefe], if you’re again from Singapore. And if I can’t be there, then one among you possibly can simply contact me afterwards, as a result of then in fact I’m focused on the way it went with good Boris.”

Graefe then instructed Gerhartz a few productive assembly he had simply had in Singapore. Based on the Google translation of the German, “I’ve nonetheless acquired one thing out of … I’ve simply met the tailor, or… are you able to keep proper on the road?” The phrase Graefe used was schneider. Both this was code for Normal Schneider spoken to cover from the others what was meant, or everybody knew who was meant.

“Sure, OK,” Gerhartz replied. “I’ll name you once more individually in a second.” This a sign that what Graefe had “acquired out of” Schneider was so delicate, it wasn’t for the ears of the 2 lieutenant colonels.

This final revelation additionally signifies that if the Russians had intercepted the teleconference, additionally they know what Schneider instructed Graefe for Gerhartz. If the US is behind the interception and leak, they need to maintain Schneider’s half high secret.
