Who is killing the great chefs of Europe? That is the title of a movie from 1978. A new title could be, Who is killing the great warehouses of Asia?
On August 12, 2015 a massive explosion, possibly caused by a fuel-air bomb (thermobaric weapon), ripped apart a warehouse in Tianjin, China.
In eastern Shangdon province, China, on or about August 23, 2015, a warehouse in Zibo city exploded. “Hundreds were injured and 54 are still missing.” 
Roughly concurrent with the Shangdon blast, an explosion at the Sagami Depot in the city of Sagamihara, Japan, about 25 miles southwest of Tokyo, happened just after midnight (Japan time). This would have been either August 23 or August 24, depending on one’s time zone. An eyewitness reported smelling a “gunpowder-ish smell.” 
Who is killing the great warehouses of Asia? In the deep background are top-secret negotiations on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, otherwise known as TPP. A video clip from Wikileaks, hopefully viewable at top, tries to give a thumbnail sketch of TPP, as well as of two other covert “trade deals”, TTIP and TISA. (Acknowledgement to Dr. Jai Maharaj, who called attention to the video at the alt.conspiracy newsgroup.)
On Friday, July 31, 2015, President Barack Obama’s hopes for Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) ran aground in Hawaii. Trade negotiators from 12 nations announced they had failed to reach a deal. The U.S. Congress had earlier given “Fast Track” authority for TPP, after a ferocious battle which saw even mention of TPP suddenly allowed in the newspapers. 
July 31, 2015: TPP negotiations collapse. August 11, 2015: China makes a surprise yuan devaluation. August 12, 2015: China again devalues the yuan and the Tianjin explosion occurs. August 16, 2015: President Barack Obama issues a stern warning about the presence of Chinese government agents operating secretly in the United States. August 20, 2015: Global stock markets sink; Dow-Jones down 358. August 21, 2015: Global stock markets sink further; Dow-Jones down 531. August 23, 2015: Shangdon warehouse explosion. Also on August 23 (or August 24, depending on time zone): Sagami warehouse in Japan is visited by an explosion. August 24, 2015 (early morning, Central Time): Global markets continue to plunge; main Shanghai share index down 8.4 percent.
It’s all good on Wall Street: If the stocks go down, there has been “profit taking”; if the stocks go up, there have been “bargain hunters.” Who knows where the U.S. stock market will head today, August 24th? It is recalled however that, in the 1987 stock market crash of Monday, October 19, when the Dow fell by 22.61 percent or 508 points, the previous Friday had seen a drop of 108 points. That had itself been a big drop, given that the Dow stood at 2,722 in August 1987.  With Dow having been in the astronomical 18,000 range this year, the relative percentage of its latest drops compared with the 1987 percentages would be more indicative than the number of points down. We have not yet seen anything like a one-day 22.61 percentage drop this year, as we saw in 1987.
1987: Friday drop of 108 points in Dow. 2015: Friday drop of 531 in Dow. 1987 Friday percentage loss: 108/2722 equals 0.039… 2015 Friday percentage loss: 531/18000 equals 0.0295. Extrapolating from these rough figures, I get around a 4,000 point Dow drop being necessary to approximate the drop of Monday, October 19, 1987. (These are my back-of-the-envelope calculations and are not exact.)
Friday, October 16, 1987, Dow drops 3.9 percent. Friday, August 21, 2015, Dow drops 2.9 percent. Feel free to pounce upon me about my math.
Rods From God
Were “Rods from God” responsible for the Tianjin explosion of August 12, 2015? In 2004, Popular Science carried an article, subtitled “Space-launched darts that strike like meteors.” Orbiting satellites would launch tungsten rods against a target such as the Tianjin warehouse. These “rods from God” would enter the atmosphere like a meteor and devastate the target. 
Picking up on the way-out theorizing of Popular Science, Natural News on August 17, 2015 headlined that the Tianjin explosion had been carried out by a “Pentagon space weapon” in retaliation for the yuan currency devaluation. It was “Rod of God” which caused the main blast, Natural News was told by mainland Chinese dissidents. 
Or was Tianjin caused by ignorant fire fighters spraying water on chemicals stored in the warehouse? That was the theory being promoted by mainstream “news”, which however did not precisely explain how it is that water on chemicals could have triggered such a huge explosion.
My own favored theory is that a thermobaric weapon, a fuel-air explosive, caused the big blast at Tianjin. However Natural News discounts this, saying that it was “not a fuel air bomb because fuel air bombs will not leave craters.” 
Who Is Killing the Great Warehouses of Asia?
Who is killing the great warehouses of Asia? In the 1978 movie, Who Is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe?, the murdered chefs had one thing in common: all had made a dish featured in a (fictional) gourmet magazine, Epicurious. The “gourmet magazine” for the warehouse explosions could be TPP: The Trans-Pacific Partnership.
