In the United States, there was the second major train derailment in a month with dangerous chemicals

In the American city of Van Buren in Michigan, railroad cars carrying various chemicals derailed. This was reported by the local authorities.

At least six carriages of the train derailed. According to the state authorities, liquid chlorine was transported in one of the train cars. But as a result of the accident, the contents of the car did not suffer, otherwise it would have threatened serious consequences for others.



Interestingly, just two weeks earlier, another similar disaster had occurred in Ohio. On February 3, 2023, about 50 wagons of a freight train were derailed. The train was also carrying hazardous chemicals.


In 20 train cars there was vinyl chloride, a poisonous substance that is also highly flammable and easily flammable. At the same time, vinyl chloride combustion products are toxic to the environment, and in humans they can provoke the onset of cancer.

Now American law enforcement agencies will find out the causes of the train crash in Michigan. The authorities have not yet hinted at the connection between the two incidents that occurred two weeks apart.

But if the accidents are caused not by third-party intervention and someone's intentional actions, but by technical reasons, then the American authorities should pay attention to the condition of the railway track, locomotives, and freight train cars used to transport chemicals.

          Ordinary Americans still believe and are Christians. However, I also do not believe in the accident of what happened. Someone is preparing the ground for a popular uprising in the country...

            This has been a pattern for a long time.
            I remember that immediately after arriving in the United States, for several days the news showed a passenger train that had fallen off the bridge.

      Gee-gee))) Spread it, but I repeat:

      And so as not to get up twice - Tucker Carlson recently:
      - Over the past two years, in the state of Washington alone, the FBI has investigated about 40 cases of railroad sabotage (Americans derail their own trains).
      - Over the past year, more than a thousand trains in the United States have derailed.
      - Yesterday, trains were derailed in South Carolina and Houston (the second was carrying hazardous chemicals).

      Are you talking rubbish about RZD? Ah, nu-nu...
      By the way, not only Russian Railways - they have an epidemic of attacks on power grids - they set fire or shoot, for example, substations or transformers ... And massively, you see, sanctions are working, there is no energy crisis

      Were they insured like those two towers?
      And there was also building 7 of the World Trade Center, we are waiting for the third train.
      Building 7, which no one flew into
      The fall of 7 WTC was investigated separately from the fall of 1 WTC and 2 WTC, and in June 2004, NIST released a working report that contained several hypotheses of what happened. One of the hypotheses was the destruction of one of the critical supporting columns of the building, caused by a fire or ingestion of large debris from falling towers, which led to a "disproportionate collapse of the entire structure"
      https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Разрушение_башен_Всемирного_торгового_центра_в_Нью-Йорке#Обрушение_здания_7_WTC

      A modest beneficiary from the Deep State
      Who was the owner of the twin towers?
      At the end of June 2001, Larry Silverstein leased (actually purchased) the World Trade Center twin towers from the Port Authority of New York for $99 billion, but in the end managed to pay off only about $3,2 million.
      On September 11, 2001, Larry Silverstein and his daughter miraculously survived the terrorist attacks, Larry liked to have breakfast every day in the WTC-1 building, and his daughter worked there, but neither one nor the second appeared in the building that day.
      The jury found the attacks to be two separate insurance claims. Thus, the amount of insurance payments to the tenant of the Twin Towers Larry Silverstein amounted to $ 4,65 billion in insurance, as well as $ 3,4 billion from the Liberty bond fund, that is, a total of $ 8,05 billion.

      Now American law enforcement agencies will find out the causes of the train crash in Michigan. The authorities have not yet hinted at the connection between the two incidents that occurred two weeks apart.

      According to some estimates, from 1941 to 1944, about 6,2 thousand partisan detachments operated behind enemy lines, the number of which exceeded 1 million people. During the war years, they inflicted serious damage on the enemy: 20 train wrecks, 2,5 destroyed steam locomotives, 42 blown up cars, 12 bridges, 6 tanks and armored vehicles withdrawn and built, 1,1 blown up aircraft and about 600 thousand destroyed soldiers and officers.


      It is high time to respond to the supply of weapons by the United States and NATO countries to Ukraine with a tough "rail war", especially since Russia's school and experience in this direction are the best in the world.
      I hope such heroes as Sidor Kovpak, Alexei Fedorov, Alexander Saburov have not yet died out. If necessary, we can repeat!

      The main thing is that all of Russia sees this ugly fuss. And the leadership of the Moscow Region does not care about this. Prigozhin has his own resource-mind, he knows how to change tactics, including in battle. The transfer of Wagner to other areas confirms this - Prigozhin responded. Shoigu has administrative resources. Both resources are serious and the ugly swara will be long. That is, the authority of the Moscow Region will rapidly fall. This cannot but affect the one who is above this swara and he will be forced to intervene.
