Russian Nuke Sub Kursk
Sunk By US Torpedo
By James Donahue
When the Russian nuclear
submarine Kursk went to the bottom of the Barents Sea with
118 crew members trapped inside, the story made headlines around the world.
The official story at
the time was that it was an on-board accident, that the crew accidentally discharged one of their own torpedoes.
Our son, psychic viewer
Aaron C. Donahue said that wasn’t what happened. I recall him saying that he felt there was something fishy
about this accident and that he thought the United States
had something to do with it. As a psychic, he said that he “saw” U. S.
submarines operating near the Kursk at the time and that one of our vessels collided with the
As I recall, the Russians
declined an offer by the U.S. to help
in recovery operations and the eventual raising of the ship. There seemed to be a lot of secrecy involved in the whole operation
in spite of intense international media interest.
Now a new French documentary
is shaking Europe with a claim that the Kursk was sunk by a torpedo fired from a U. S. submarine.
The documentary examines
film footage that shows a hole in the side of the wreck with metal bend inwards, consistent with an attack from outside the
submarine. The documentary notes that the accident happened while two US submarines, the Toledo and Memphis, were shadowing
the Kursk in a “routine military exercise” reminescent of the Cold War years.
Backing up the vision
Donahue had of the incident, the documentary claims the incident began when the Toledo accidentally
collided with the Kursk. In response, the crew of the Kursk opened the ship’s torpedo tubes. The Memphis,
which was protecting the damaged Toledo during its retreat
from the area, attacked.
A British newspaper quoted
a U. S. “military source” as saying the hole in the side of
the Kursk was “the trademark evidence of an American
MK-48 torpedo, which is made to melt cleanly through steel sheet due to a mechanism at its tip that combusts copper.”
An incident like that
might have triggered a war between Russia
and the United States except cool heads were operating at the top levels of government that week. There were some long conversations
between U.S. President Bill Clinton and Russian President Vladimir Putin that lead to a quiet act of diplomacy. Consequently,
there was a cover up of the story originating in high places, the film claims.
It says there was a deal
cut that week that included the cancellation of a $12.5 billion Russian debt, the documentary said.
