Was the Tsunami Man-Made

fter reading the warning about a potential nuclear attack on Dec. 27th I must admit I became a little paranoid. I decided I had better come up with an "escape plan," just in case.
After reading the warning about a potential nuclear attack on Dec. 27th I must admit I became a little paranoid. I decided I had better come up with an "escape plan," just in case. I thought about flying to South America, but that wouldn't be possible because the airports would certainly be shut down as the country would be put under lock-down. The borders would be closed, so no driving to Canada or Mexico. But what about the Ocean? That's it, I could steal a boat and sail it or drive it or whatever to South America. Oh, but the Coast Guard would probably sink my boat and either kill me or arrest me. Ah, but if I stole a submarine I could escape the United States and submarine my self to South America. Plus, if another Nuc. attack took place I would be protected under the ocean. See, I didn't come up with that last bit of information on my own, instead I found it at a website that sells luxury submarines to those with the where-with-all to avoid lifes unpleasantries (like a nuclear attack), See, www.ussubmarines.com. After no nuclear device was detonated (in Houston, TX), I began to wonder if maybe the German guy was full of Sauerkraut. Then I remembered what I read about those submarines, "safe underwater-protected from a nuclear attack." Could it be possible that a nuclear blast, underwater, caused the Tsunami? I mean it did take place within one day of the warning. Even if you are a complete sceptic you must admit that is one hell of a coincidence. So, I did some checking, and according to a religiously affiliated (they sell bibles and stuff on their website www.higherpraise.com/tsunami.htm) webpage, yes it is possible. In fact, a bomb blast has caused a Tsunami before. "Huge Explosion Generated A Tsunami During World War I." The website goes on to state, "Could Nuclear testing create a tsunami? This is a difficult topic to research, because much of the information surrounding nuclear testing is classified. During the Cold War there was fear of tsunamis produced by the detonation of nuclear bombs on the continental shelf off the East Coast of the US. A nuclear bomb was never detonated on the shelf, however a huge explosion did generate a tsunami during World War I. Any large disturbance that displaces a large volume of water can be a potential cause of a tsunami."

Now, if it is possible that a tsunami can be caused by a bomb, lets say nuculear underground testing, others would have documented this, right? Well they have. According to www.expressindia.com, Shyam Kumar writes, "It is impossible to have an underground nuclear test without creating an earthquake - not necessarily in the immediate vicinity but anywhere in the world. Of every 30 major earthquakes,some 21 or 22 follow a nuclear explosion. There are other reasons for earthquakes, but the vast majority are the result of underground nuclear testing. We need not test nuclear bombs.
Self-interest is causing these earthquakes," said one geologist who has been monitoring the corelation.
"The tragic earthquake in Gujarath is a terrible event It is indeed my information that nuclear testing is responsible for 25 per cent of all earthquakes, which is obviously an unacceptable amount."
Further, the US Geological Survey has based all its preliminary findings, not on actual measurments of the earth upheaving, but on the size of the waves. All of this makes me wonder, is it possible that the this Tsunami was manmade? What do you think?

Some more potential causess for a Tsunami 01.Jan.2005 01:31

Accoriding to www.iron-eagles.tripod.com/articles/em_earthquake.htm,
"On 17 January 1995, the Japanese city of Kobe was struck by a massive earthquake that devastated much of the city, killing over 5,500 people and injuring many thousands more. Shoko Asahara, the leader of the Japanese Aum Supreme Truth (Aum Shinrikyo) sect, had surprisingly predicted, in a Tokyo radio broadcast on 8 January 1995, that a major quake would soon occur at Kobe. Asahara went even further and stated that this quake would be initiated by a "a foreign power" utilising an electromagnetic (EM) weapons system.

Aum's Science Minister Hideo Murai later stated at the Foreign Press Correspondents' Club in Tokyo on 7 April 1995 that, "There is a possibility that the great Hanshin [Kobe] earthquake was activated by electromagnetic power or some device that exerts energy into the ground." Although Asahara would undoubtedly have preferred his great predictive powers to be thought of as due to a highly developed and superior spiritual ability to examine the future time-track (thus attracting more gullible followers after this quake event), it is far more likely that he was fed warning intelligence re Kobe by Aum's Science Minister Murai, and/or Japanese Intelligence operatives who themselves were forewarned by Russian KGB officials.

In his pre-Aum days, Hideo Murai had worked on highly advanced microwave and gamma/cosmic-ray physics applications for cold moulding of steel at the Kobe Steel laboratories. This laboratory complex was located at the near-exact epicentre of the great Kobe earthquake. Japanese investigative journalists believe that this Kobe laboratory was one of several research facilities (located at Osaka, Tsukuba and Tokyo universities) engaged in top-secret research and development of EM weapons technology under the cover of Kobe Steel industrial research and/or environmental "desert-greening" studies.

The Aum's deputy leader, Kiyohide Hayakawa, in his pre-Aum days studied at Osaka University in the Landscape Engineering section of the Environmental Engineering department. His thesis is highly confidential and not available to the public, but allegedly contains only "landscape gardening" studies. There is some suggestion that his area of study included the use of advanced EM weapons technology in Weather Engineering. Japanese scientists from their EM weapon research university departments are today conducting extensive field observations of Eastern Goldfields weather patterns and the factors required to "green" our Australian deserts - on behalf of the Japanese Environmental Ministry and our Western Australian Government.

Certain public observations on exotic cloud formations, new weather patterns, and unusually wet weather suggest to this author that experiments in weather engineering involving EM weapons technology transmissions have been underway in Western Australia over the past 4-5 years, with the apparent aim to green our central semi-deserts and create a series of huge forests - for commercial gain and to act as a CO2 sink.

A large group of Japanese scientists including military personnel (some 50 people) were observed east of Perth last Easter 96 photographing with telescopic tripod mounted cameras and observing by telescope such exotic weather tests.

Weather patterns observed on several occasions, including Easter 96, consisted of several perfectly symetrical and exactly similar circular cloud multi-ring complexes - each complex touching the next along the outer cloud ring - each complex consisting of one cloud ring inside the next - like a "Russian Doll" - creating five concentric "smoke rings" - each cloud ring being tube like in x-sectional form - each complex having a diameter of some 30km - the group of cloud ring complexes formed as a line over some 100km offshore of our western coast. Such totally symetrical cloud formations and the associated events have never been observed in previous W.A. history.

The individual cloud ring complexes formed as one ring puff followed by another each expanding until the entire cloud system was established over a few hours in the late morning. Heavy weather formed up to seaward of these cloud complexes by late afternoon and then swept inland in the early evening. These events always involved evening power outages caused by overvoltage generation in our Darling Ranges power line system - just prior to the eastward movement of the previously static storm systems. Persons sensitive to EM fields were in physical agony all day as the cloud system and heavy weather formed up. Such weather events have been seen several times in the 1995/96 time period and correlated well with cyclonic storms turning south off of our northern shores and rushing inland to connect up with the eastwards moving heavy weather fronts - the combination of two enormous storm systems then proceeding to dump highly anomalous rainfall into central and south-eastern Western Australia.

Note the recent press (Washington Post/Asia Wall Street Journal/Malaysian Star 14/13-11-97 ) re Malaysia's intention to engage the services of a Russian State company and it's secret orbital satellite technology to create large cyclones (hurricanes to you Yanks) in order to blow away the smoke and haze from the recent massive environmental disaster created by the huge Indonesian and Borneo Jungle Fires. This Russian company now provides weather to order - anywhere on the planet - at a multi-million dollar price.

To say that they have not used this system in the bad old days of the "Cold War", or in the more recent past in weather warfare, or at someone's very specific bequest would be at best na_ve. For instance the huge storm cell generated in the Bay of Biscay that hit the UK in October 1987 in a historically unknown manner, whilst the world stock market was crashing. The cyclonic winds destroyed entire areas of forest and knocked out significant sections of southern England's telephone system, and therefore locked many persons into a collapsing market - unable to sell. Someone made a lot of money out of that - by getting out first in New York - and bashed the British financial system at the same time. Of course it was a natural event - an act of God - but what if someone was playing at being God ???

There have been many other examples of very odd high power storm cells hitting many areas of the USA, Australia, Asia, and Europe over the past decade or so - all creating m,assive damage and significant loss of life - some creating very special economic pressure - eg. Lloyds great collapse was due to huge unprecedented insurance claims originating in damage from storms of this type over several years - how many of these storms were created by a Russian EM system (or a US system ?)- and with what economic intention ??? There is ample evidence of steered storms hitting special targets - eg the case a few years ago of a hurricane that hit southern Florida and appeared to specifically alter course to attack an isolated nuclear power station right on the nose.

In future insurance claims will have to include next to "Acts of God", a clause about "Acts of Fabians/old KGB etc.". Real estate in the central Australian semi-deserts could suddenly become very valuable - gives the MABO Native Title Rights a whole new meaning !!!

Coming to grips with the "new" Tesla EM field world will involve some high powered reality adjustment by many human mushrooms.

The existence of such an EM technology capable of weather engineering has been denied by Western Government, "scientists", and news media for many years - inspite of ground breaking observation by US scientists such as Tom Bearden and others - who were usually sneared at as "nutters or loony tunes". Now either the Malaysian Environment ministry has stuffed up big time by running this press release - when it should have been kept under wraps - or perhaps the news release announces in a subtle way that the Russians have come to the aid of Malaysia in her recent currency hammering by George Souros and the US Treasury - the message is "back off" or face a blast from our EM weapons.

Either way the Weather Engineering Technology doubters and ivory tower experts have now got a lot of explaining to do.

The EM technology for creating weather engineering, earthquakes, city busting explosions, or zapping space craft and/or UFO's is basically the same system - they just differ by the amount of energy per micro second per square meter poured into your target.

We are told that greenhouse gases are our worst enemy and are creating El Nino effects and massive weather changes across the planet. We are told we MUST all rally together to combat this CO2 plague by creating yet more pressure on jobs, and we MUST stop the great flurocarbon release that is hitting the Ozone layer for six.

I am all in favour of sound ecological management of our planet - but the recent Kyoto Vaudeville show could do with a new scientific perspective - now that there is US Newspaper "proof" of the existence of weather engineering technology, and a complimentary suggestion of my own that Ozone destruction could be due to the use of massive Tesla EM field transmission power (of both Russian and US sources) - concentrating via geomagnetic electron flow lines down to the South Pole where it effects the destruction of ever so unstable Ozone - rather than the effects of fluorocarbon molecules.

I am afraid that we are being conned yet again with the new environmental bogie replacing the Hitler clone type hate/fear spin doctor ikon - all in the name of covert control of the human mushroom population of our planet..............

A far better game would be to spur us all onto the discovery of a clean "Free Energy Source" - to replace oil, coal, and uranium fuel systems. But meanwhile back at Kobe ................

For several days prior to the great Kobe earthquake there were reports of glowing orange-red and pink lights and spherical forms hovering over and along the Kobe fault line. Such Earth stress lights have been observed over major quakes in many parts of the globe since the 19th century, but the number and intensity of those that developed in the January 1995 pre-Kobe quake days appear to be highly anomalous.

The existence of geophysical weapons capable of creating or triggering earthquakes in highly stressed crustal regions has been discussed privately by geophysicists for a decade or more. Rumours have abounded over certain huge earthquakes of the 1970s and 1980s in the Central Asian republics of the former USSR. Some writers have suggested that these were caused by Israeli, French or American EM weapons systems used in retaliation for Soviet EM weapon strikes on the West.

US scientist Tom Bearden contends that the Soviets brought into service an intercontinental-range Tesla EM weapon in 1963 during the Khrushchev era.

The evidence that Kobe was not a natural earthquake is slender and is based primarily upon Asahara's prediction that was later proved so horrifyingly correct. There would appear to be some supporting evidence of an indirect nature involving political considerations and other more recent world events. Taking into consideration the entire Kobe and Aum Tokyo scenarios together with the earlier, possibly Aum-related, fireball-explosion-earthquake events of 28 May 1993 at Banjawarn, Western Australia, one is left with a very strong impression of a serious "EM fire" underlying the visible "dark plume of smoke" that rose over Kobe - (See Bright Skies Parts 1 to 4 for further evidence re the existence of EM Earthquake, City Buster, and Beam weapon systems).

But what motive could there possibly be for such a major city- busting weapon strike? Why choose an exotic EM weapon system?

It is quite possible that the EM strike was directed at the secret Kobe Steel EM weapons research laboratory and that the motive was in part to destroy this facility and cause such a resounding blow to the civilian population, similar in scale to the nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, that the Japanese oligarchic powers behind the scenes would think long and hard before attempting to continue their EM weapons project. Only the big boys on the block were going to have the modern magical equivalent of Merlin's staff - all the second order gangs should think again ???

If the USA (or a covert international power group based therein) were the belligerent party that struck down Kobe, then the motive would most likely have included a 'big stick' warning to the Japanese powers to do what they were told with regard to the New World (economic) Order, or face the consequences.

It would appear from subsequent events that the Japanese oligarchy did not grovel under this attack but in fact, after some further provocation, went on the offensive with its own (or a friend's) EM weapon system."

Pretty weird huh?

The Austrialian

December 31, 2004
INEVITABLY, confronted with a tragedy of unimaginable scale, the human mind looks for someone to blame. In the Dark Ages, disasters were ascribed to the wrath of God. Now, in an odd inversion that we like to think of as progress, they are adduced as evidence of no God.

In the absence of a deity to decry or appease when the earth moves in such devastating fashion, humankind reaches for the next best thing - worldly authority. Authority should have known it was coming. Authority didn't do enough to prevent it. Authority was too preoccupied with its own nefarious priorities to care.

There is plenty of authority to blame for the devastation caused by the Sumatran earthquake this week. Governments in Bangkok, Jakarta and Colombo will shoulder some of it. Governments farther afield will be inculpated for the poverty of their response. Media organisations will be attacked for being too callous and too mawkish. Unsurprisingly, perhaps the most inviting target is the US.

In the past three days I have been impressed by the originality of the latest critiques of the evil Americans. The earthquake and tsunami apparently had something to do with global warming, environmentalists say, caused of course by greedy American motorists. Then there was the rumour that the US military base at Diego Garcia was forewarned of the impending disaster and presumably because of some CIA-approved plot to undermine Islamic movements in Indonesia and Thailand did nothing about it.

To be fair, even the most animated America-hater, though, baulks at the idea of blaming George W. Bush for the destruction and death in southern Asia. But the US is blamed for not responding generously enough to help the victims of the catastrophe. A UN official this week derided Washington's contribution as stingy.









It is a label that fits the general image abroad of greedy, self-absorbed Americans. They neither know nor care much about the woes of the rest of the world, do they? Did the tsunami even get a look-in on US TV news between the holiday schmalz and the football games, I have been sneeringly asked once or twice this week by contemptuous British friends.

The answer is yes, it did. News coverage of the event has been extensive, and for the most part intelligent and mercifully free of the sort of parochialism about holidaymakers that characterises so much of the European press accounts. There have been some lapses -- the New York newspaper that carried on its front page the Manhattan supermodel's harrowing tale of survival as her boyfriend was swept away by a tidal wave. There has perhaps been a little too much "what if it happened here?" alarmist self-absorption.

But for the most part Americans have watched a sobering, heartbreaking tale of unimagined calamity unfold halfway across the world. You get a sense of the heterogeneity of this country when something such as this happens. Every newspaper in every big city has been carrying stories about local Sri Lankan, Indonesian, Thai and Malaysian communities traumatised by the long-distance search for relatives and friends.

Further, in financial terms, it is not at all clear that the US is shirking its responsibilities, pledging an initial $US35 million ($45.1million) in aid, with the prospect of much more to come, and offering military assistance. You can be sure that the private US response will be even more impressive. Don't misunderstand me. I am not suggesting that Americans are any more generous than anyone else -- simply that they, too, are moved to mercy by the plight of others.

But even as we seek to apportion blame when catastrophe strikes, we are gripped too by a kind of fatalism. We stand in awe of nature and feel helpless before its apparently insuperable power. The rising death toll in Southeast Asia seems to mock our pretensions to progress. We may have been to the moon, eradicated smallpox and created eBay, we think, but when the tectonic plates move we are no more secure than were the barefoot citizens of Pompeii.

Yet the truth is not so grim. For centuries, steady progress has been made in the struggle to limit the effects of natural disasters. Last year, an earthquake that measured 6.6 on the Richter scale killed more than 40,000 people in the Iranian city of Bam. In 1989, a more powerful earthquake struck outside San Francisco. The death toll was fewer than 100. Of course there were demographic and geologic differences that contributed to the disparity. Of course there will never be a fail-safe protection against the most destructive efforts of nature. But it is within our reach to build systems that can mitigate their effects.

Years of scientific effort and technological investment have given the world seismic sensors; early warning systems; buildings that can bounce up and down on stilts buried deep in the earth; flood barriers and other techniques. We can discern the outlines of a strategy for preventing, or at least limiting future disasters.

As we contemplate nature's fearful capacity for destruction and our apparent helplessness, we should not forget the greater tragedy that is humankind's potential for self-destruction. It was humanity, not nature, that killed tens of millions in the wars and genocides of the 20th century. Even as we master techniques to protect us from the earth's violence, we perfect new, more effective means of delivering our own.

NAZI BUSH REGIME's ENVIRO/HAARP-REICHSTAG FIRE: seize Aceh oil militarily as "rescue"
author: various
Why has a senior commander involved in the invasion of Iraq been assigned to lead the US emergency relief program? "Lieutenant General Blackman was previously Chief of Staff...leading the Marines into Baghdad..."

US Foreknowledge and Selective Warnings. Similar to 9-11, the automatic warning system STANDS DOWN to allow a terrorist act occur, hypothetically using the HAARP technology, to justify upcoming militarization of the area with US troops in an area rich with oil. Whether HAARP or otherwise, the associated issue would be the standdown of the automatic earthquake warning system among its subscribing member nations. This is CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE--U.S. ONLY WARNS AUSTRALIA AND INDONESIA--LEFT OTHERS IN AN ENVIRONMENTAL REICHSTAG FIRE TO DIE FOR POLITIAL GAIN, and then invaded oil rich Aceh with over 2000 U.S. Marines and two aircraft carriers with armed helicopters.

No one tells the member countries about the "earthquake". However, the US DOES WARN its military base in the aera. And from this military base, part of the invasion of Aceh is proceeding with TWO AIRCRAFT CARRIERS and led by the U.S.'s pre-emptive invasion of Iraq leadership. "In a bitter irony, part of this operation is being coordinated out of America's Naval base in Diego Garcia. The US warns its naval base, though fails to warn Indian Ocean rim governments. "...the strike group, with its seven ships, 2,100 Marines and 1,400 sailors aboard, also has four Cobra helicopters..."

The oil rich Aceh area, which like Iraq, was suffering from a civil war making oil extraction difficult.

2004 Sumatra quake/tsunami (click to animate): HAARP and/or Selective Warnings
US Foreknowledge of Natural Disaster, then Selective Warning, then US military invasion from Iraqi commander and aircraft carriers

SAID IN APRIL 1997 BY THE U.S. SECRETARY OF DEFENSE, WILLIAM COHEN: "Others [terrorists] are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves... So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations... It's real, and that's the reason why we have to intensify our [counterterrorism] efforts." --- Secretary of Defense William Cohen at an April 1997 counterterrorism conference sponsored by former Senator Sam Nunn. Quoted from DoD News Briefing, Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen, Q&A at the Conference on Terrorism, Weapons of Mass Destruction, and U.S. Strategy, University of Georgia, Athens, Apr. 28, 1997.

"In short,...the Secretary of Defense of the United States confirmed that there are indeed novel kinds of EM weapons, right now and have been for some time, which have been and are being used to (1) initiate earthquakes, (2) engineer the weather and climate, and (3) initiate the eruption of volcanoes. We wrote about those exact uses of the weaponry decades ago. Several nations now have such weapons. Three of them (two on one side and the other on a hostile side) are even firing practice shots into Western Australia, as a convenient test range."

11 facts/points, most assembled from PIMC already


1.

Foreknowledge of A Natural Disaster
Washington was aware that a deadly Tidal Wave was building up in the Indian Ocean

Michel Chossudovsky | December 29 2004

The US Military and the State Department were given advanced warning. America's Navy base on the island of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean was notified.

Why were fishermen in India, Sri Lanka and Thailand not provided with the same warnings as the US Navy and the US State Department?

Why did the US State Department remain mum on the existence of an impending catastrophe?

With a modern communications system, why did the information not get out? By email, telephone, fax, satellite TV... ?

It could have saved the lives of more than 80,000 people. And the death toll is rising.

The earthquake was a Magnitude 9.0 on the Richter scale, among the highest in recorded history. US authorities had initially recorded 8.0 on the Richter scale.

As confirmed by several reports, US scientists in Hawaii, had advanced knowledge regarding an impending catastrophe, but failed to contact their Asian counterparts.

Charles McCreery of the Pacific Warning Center in Hawaii confirmed that his team tried desperately to get in touch with his counterparts in Asia. According to McCreery, director of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's center in Honolulu, the team did its utmost to contact the countries. (The NOAA in Hawaii's Report at  http://www.noaanews.noaa.gov/stories2004/s2357.htm ).

His team contacted the US State Department, which apparently contacted the Asian governments. The Indian government confirms that no such warning was received. (The Hindu, 27 Dec 2004)

Nine (9.0) on the Richter scale: The Director of the Hawaii Warning Center stated that "they did not know" that the earthquake would generate a deadly tidal wave until it had hit Sri Lanka, more than one and a half hours later, at 2.30 GMT. (see Timeline below)

"Not until the deadly wave hit Sri Lanka and the scientists in Honolulu saw news reports of the damage there did they recognize what was happening... 'Then we knew there was something moving across the Indian Ocean,' said Charles McCreery. (quoted in the NYT, 28 Dec 2004 ).

This statement is at odds with the Timeline of the tidal wave disaster. Thailand was hit almost an hour before Sri Lanka and the news reports were already out. Surely, these reports out of Thailand were known to the scientists in Hawaii, not to mention the office of Sec. Colin Powell, well before the tidal wave reached Sri Lanka.

''We wanted to try to do something, but without a plan in place then, it was not an effective way to issue a warning, or to have it acted upon,'' Dr. McCreery said. ''There would have still been some time -- not a lot of time, but some time -- if there was something that could be done in Madagascar, or on the coast of Africa.''

The above statement is also inconsistent.

The tidal wave reached the East African coastline several hours after it reached The Maldives islands. According to news reports, Male, the capital of the Maldives was hit three hours after the earthquake, at approximately 4.00 GMT. By that time everybody around the World knew.

It is worth noting that the US Navy was fully aware of the deadly tidal wave, because the Navy was on the Pacific Warning Center's list of contacts. Moreover, America's strategic Naval base on the island of Diego Garcia had also been notified. Although directly in the path of the tidal wave (see animated chart below), the Diego Garcia military base reported "no damage".

"One of the few places in the Indian Ocean that got the message of the quake was Diego Garcia, a speck of an island with a United States Navy base, because the Pacific warning center's contact list includes the Navy. Finding the appropriate people in Sri Lanka or India was harder." (NYT, 28 Dec 2004, emphasis added)

Now how hard is it to pick up the phone and call Sri Lanka?

According to Charles McCreery, director of the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center.

"We don't have contacts in our address book for anybody in that part of the world."

Only after the first waves hit Sri Lanka did workers at National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre [PTWC] and others in Hawaii start making phone calls to US diplomats in Madagascar and Mauritius in an attempt to head off further disaster.

"We didn't have a contact in place where you could just pick up the phone," Dolores Clark, spokeswoman for the International Tsunami Information Centre in Hawaii said. "We were starting from scratch."

These statement on the surface are inconsistent, since several Indian Ocean Asian countries are in fact members of the Tsunami Warning System.

There are 26 member countries of the International Coordination Group for the Tsunami Warning System , including Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia. All these countries would normally be in the address book of the PTWC, which works in close coordination with its sister organization the ICGTWS , which has its offices in Honolulu at the headquarters of the National Weather Service Pacific Region Headquarters in downtown Honolulu.

The mandate of the ICGTWS is to "assist member states in establishing national warning systems, and makes information available on current technologies for tsunami warning systems."

Australia and Indonesia were notified. The US Congress is to investigate why the US government did not notify all the Indian Ocean nations in the affected area: "Only two countries in the affected region, Indonesia and Australia, received the warning"

"Although Thailand belongs to the international tsunami-warning network, its west coast does not have the system's wave sensors mounted on ocean buoys.

The northern tip of the earthquake fault is located near the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, and tsunamis appear to have rushed eastward toward the Thai resort of Phuket.

"They had no tidal gauges and they had no warning," said Waverly Person, a geophysicist at the National Earthquake Information Centre in Golden, Colorado, U.S., which monitors seismic activity worldwide. "There are no buoys in the Indian Ocean and that's where this tsunami occurred."" (Hindu, 27 Dec 2004)

The issue of the Ocean sensors is a Red Herring

We we were not able to warn them because we had no sensors in the Indian Ocean: This argument is a Red Herring.

We are not dealing with advanced information based on the Ocean sensors, but on an emergency warning transmitted in the immediate wake of the earthquake. The latter took place at 00.58 GMT on the 26th of Dec. That information was sent to The State Department and the US Navy.

With modern communications, the information of an impending disaster could have been sent around the World in a matter of minutes, by email, by telephone, by fax, not to mention by live satellite Television.

Coastguards, municipalities, local governments, tourist hotels, etc. could have been warned.

According to Tsunami Society President Prof. Tad Murty of the University of Manitoba:

'there's no reason for a single individual to get killed in a tsunami,' since most areas had anywhere from 25 minutes to four hours before a wave hit. So, once again, because of indifference and corruption thousands of innocent people have died needlessly." (Calgary Sun, 28 Dec 2004)

Key Questions

1. Why were the Indian Ocean countries' governments not informed?

Were there "guidelines" from the US military or the State Department regarding the release of an advanced warning?

According to the statement of the Hawaii based PTWC, advanced warning was released but on a selective basis. Indonesia was already hit, so the warning was in any event redundant and Australia was several thousand miles from the epicentre of the earthquake and was, therefore, under no immediate threat.

2. Did US authorities monitoring seismographic data have knowledge of the earthquake prior to its actual occurrence at 00.57 GMT on the 26th of December?

The question is whether there were indications of abnormal seismic activity prior to 01.00 GMT on the 26th of Dec.

The US Geological Survey confirmed that the earthquake which triggered the tidal wave measured 9.0 on the Richter scale and was the fourth largest quake since 1900. In such cases, one would expect evidence of abnormal seismic activity before the actual occurrence of a major earthquake.

3. Why is the US military Calling the Shots on Humanitarian Relief

Why in the wake of the disaster, is the US military (rather than civilian humanitarian/aid organizations operating under UN auspices) taking a lead role?

The US Pacific Command has been designated to coordinate the channeling of emergency relief? Marine Corps Lt. Gen. Rusty Blackman, commander of the 3rd Marine Expeditionary Force based in Okinawa, has been designated to lead the emergency relief program

Lieutenant General Blackman was previously Chief of Staff for Coalition Forces Land Component Command, responsible for leading the Marines into Baghdad during "Operation Iraqi Freedom."

Three "Marine disaster relief assessment teams" under Blackman's command have been sent to Thailand, Sri Lanka and Indonesia.

US military aircraft are conducting observation missions.

In a bitter irony, part of this operation is being coordinated out of America's Naval base in Diego Garcia, which was not struck by the tidal wave. Meanwhile, "USS Abraham Lincoln carrier strike group, which was in Hong Kong when the earthquake and tsunamis struck, has been diverted to the Gulf of Thailand to support recovery operations" (Press Conference of Pacific Command,  http://www.defenselink.mil/news/Dec2004/n12292004_2004122905.html ).

Two Aircraft Carriers have been sent to the region.

Why is it necessary for the US to mobilize so much military equipment? The pattern is unprecedented:

Conway said the Lincoln carrier strike group has 12 helicopters embarked that he said could be "extremely valuable" in recovery missions.

An additional 25 helicopters are aboard USS Bonhomme Richard, headed to the Bay of Bengal. Conway said the expeditionary strike group was in Guam and is forgoing port visits in Guam and Singapore and expects to arrive in the Bay of Bengal by Jan. 7.

Conway said the strike group, with its seven ships, 2,100 Marines and 1,400 sailors aboard, also has four Cobra helicopters that will be instrumented in reconnaissance efforts.

Because fresh water is one of the greatest needs in the region, Fargo has ordered seven ships each capable of producing 90,000 gallons of fresh water a day to the region. Conway said five of these ships are pre-positioned in Guam and two will come from Diego Garcia.

A field hospital ship pre-positioned in Guam would also be ordered to the region, depending on findings of the disaster relief assessment teams and need, Conway said. (Ibid)

Why has a senior commander involved in the invasion of Iraq been assigned to lead the US emergency relief program?

Seismic Activity on Dec 26

Note: extreme seismic activity prior to 01.00 GMT


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Richter Scale

US scientists in Hawaii had initially indicated that the earthquake was of a magnitude of 8.0 (ten times weaker than in the case a 9.0 earthquake on the Richter scale).

How can an error of this nature be made, with very sophisticated measuring equipment?

According to Natural Resources Canada:
"The magnitude of an earthquake is a measure of the amount of energy released. Each earthquake has a unique magnitude assigned to it. This is based on the amplitude of seismic waves measured at a number of seismograph sites, after being corrected for distance from the earthquake. Magnitude estimates often change by up to 0.2 units, as additional data are included in the estimate.

The Richter scale is logarithmic, that is an increase of 1 magnitude unit represents a factor of ten times in amplitude. The seismic waves of a magnitude 6 earthquake are 10 times greater in amplitude than those of a magnitude 5 earthquake. However, in terms of energy release, a magnitude 6 earthquake is about 31 times greater than a magnitude 5. The intensity of an earthquake varies greatly according to distance from the earthquake, ground conditions, and other factors. The Modified Mercalli Intensity Scale is used to describe earthquake effects." (  http://www.pgc.nrcan.gc.ca/seismo/eqinfo/richter.htm )

The following criteria are given by Natural Resources, Canada:
M=8: "Great" earthquake, great destruction, loss of life over several 100 km (1906 San Francisco, 1949 Queen Charlotte Islands) .

M=9: Rare great earthquake, major damage over a large region over 1000 km (Chile 1960, Alaska 1964, and west coast of British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, 1700) .

Title: HAARP-watch: fake HAARP tremors rock earth deep beneath San Andreas Fault
Author: haarp-watch, Michel Chossudovsky
Date: 2004.12.11 07:02
Description: Mysterious tremors deep beneath the San Andreas Fault near the quake-prone town of Parkfield are shaking the earth's brittle crust, FAR BELOW THE REGION WHERE EARTHQUAKES NORMALLY STRIKE -- and scientists say THEY CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHAT'S HAPPENING or what the motions mean. Seismic researchers are monitoring the strange vibrations..."..."We see this kind of tremor activity inside volcanoes like Mount St. Helens," Nadeau said, "but that's due to the movement of rising magma, and in the tremors we've recorded there's NO EVIDENCE OF VOLCANISM and NO SEISMIC WAVES TYPICAL OF ORDINARY EARTHQUAKES." "In the US, the technology is being perfected under the High-frequency Active Aural Research Program (HAARP) as part of the ("Star Wars") Strategic Defence Initiative (SDI). Recent scientific evidence suggests that HAARP is fully operational and has the ability of potentially triggering floods, droughts, hurricanes and earthquakes. From a military standpoint, HAARP is a weapon of mass destruction. Potentially, it constitutes an instrument of conquest capable of selectively destabilising agricultural and ecological systems of entire regions."

Unusual Weather Patterns (2003-2004) of Bush/Pentagon's global enviro-warfare 28.Dec.2004 19:44
more link

Environmental warfare is defined as the intentional modification or manipulation of the natural ecology, such as climate and weather, earth systems such as the ionosphere, magnetosphere, tectonic plate system, and/or the triggering of seismic events (earthquakes) to cause intentional physical, economic, and psycho-social, and physical destruction to an intended target geophysical or population location, as part of strategic or tactical war." (Eco News)


TABLE 1: Unusual Weather Patterns (2003-2004)

Alex, Ivan, Frances, Charley and Jeanne (August-September 2004): Four destructive hurricanes and a tropical rain storm occur in a sequence, within a short period of time. Unprecedented in hurricane history in the Caribbean, the island of Grenada is completely devastated: 37 people died and roughly two-thirds of the island's 100,000 inhabitants have been left homeless, in Haiti, more than two thousand people have died and tens of thousands have been made homeless. The Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Cuba and the Bahamas have also been devastated.

In the US, the damage hitting several Southern states including Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and the Carolinas is the highest in US history.

Brazil March 2004: The first-ever hurricane formed in the South Atlantic, striking Brazil with 90 mph winds and causing up to a dozen deaths. "Meteorologists were left scratching their heads in bewilderment as the familiar swirl of clouds, complete with a well-defined eye, appeared in an oceanic basin where none had been spotted before." (WP, 19 September 2004, See also  http://www.climate.org/topics/climate/brazil_hurricane.shtml )

Japan, China and the Korean Peninsula: "Japan has suffered its highest number of typhoon strikes on record, and the storms -- which hit at the rate of one a week for much of the summer -- wreaked havoc in Taiwan, China and the Korean Peninsula." (ibid)

China (August 2004): Typhoon Rananim, the worst in 48 years, has killed at least 164 people and injured more than 1800 in China's Zhejiang province. Rananim is confirmed by China's meteorological authorities to be the strongest to hit the Chinese mainland since 1956. It is estimated to have disrupted the life of some 13 million people,  http://www.cma.gov.cn/ywwz/englishread.php...

United States May 2003 : 562 tornadoes hit the United States, the highest in recorded history, far exceeding the previous monthly peak of 399 in June 1992.(CNN, July 3, 2003,  http://www.cnn.com/2003/WEATHER/07/03/wmo.extremes/ )

India, early 2003: a pre-monsoon heat wave caused peak temperatures of between 45 and 49 degrees Celsius (113 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit), killing more than 1400 people.(Ibid)

Sri Lanka, "heavy rainfalls from Tropical Cyclone 01B exacerbated already wet conditions, causing flooding and landslides and more than 300 fatalities." (Ibid)

Western Europe Summer 2003: experienced extremely high Summer temperatures. "Switzerland experienced its hottest June [2003] in at least 250 years while in the south of France average temperatures were between 5 and 7 degrees Celsius (9 to 13 degrees Fahrenheit) warmer than the long term average. England and Wales also experienced their hottest month since 1976." (Ibid)

The Ultimate Weapon of Mass Destruction: "Owning the Weather" for Military Use
by Michel Chossudovsky

www.globalresearch.ca 27 September 2004

The URL of this article is:  http://globalresearch.ca/articles/CHO409F.html

This article is follow-up on an earlier study by the author entitled Washington's New World Order Weapons Have the Ability to Trigger Climate Change, Third World Resurgence, January 2001,  http://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/CHO201A.html



What are the underlying causes of extreme weather instability, which has ravaged every major region of the World in the course of the last few years?

. . .

A study released in July 2003, by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) places the blame, without further examination, at the feet of global warming:

"These record extreme events [high temperatures, low temperatures and high rainfall amounts and droughts] all go into calculating the monthly and annual averages which, for temperatures, have been gradually increasing over the past 100 years," the WMO said in its statement (CNN, July 3, 2003,  http://www.cnn.com/2003/WEATHER/07/03/wmo.extremes/ )

While global warming is undoubtedly an important factor, it does not fully account for these extreme and unusual weather patterns.

Weather Warfare

The significant expansion in America's weather warfare arsenal, which is a priority of the Department of Defense is not a matter for debate or discussion. While, environmentalists blame the Bush administration for not having signed the Kyoto protocol, the issue of "weather warfare", namely the manipulation of weather patterns for military use is never mentioned.

The US Air Force has the capability of manipulating climate either for testing purposes or for outright military-intelligence use. These capabilities extend to the triggering of floods, hurricanes, droughts and earthquakes. In recent years, large amounts of money have been allocated by the US Department of Defense to further developing and perfecting these capabilities.

Weather modification will become a part of domestic and international security and could be done unilaterally... It could have offensive and defensive applications and even be used for deterrence purposes. The ability to generate precipitation, fog, and storms on earth or to modify space weather, ... and the production of artificial weather all are a part of an integrated set of technologies which can provide substantial increase in US, or degraded capability in an adversary, to achieve global awareness, reach, and power.

did you note that people above basically admitted that though Sumatra was only "minutes" from the tsunami when USGS noted it, they instead were presumably doing something for "20 minutes," and only after Sumatra/Aceh (oil area) was hit, then the US sent their indirect "email warning" 20 minutes later. Hypothetically, an expedited phone call to police or the main government on Sumatra would have definitely preserved more human lives. No one did this though. Surely this is criminal negligence and criminal forethought particularly in regards to Aceh.

Or, sit back and watch corp media. Here's what you would see. ABC talked up (with very detailed graphics already at the ready) Atlantic tsunamis on the morning of Dec 30. No one mentioned HAARP though. I was channel flipping, and I was shocked to see ABC repeating the same "Atlantic tsunamis" story over and over and over. I caught it twice myself and I was only channel flipping.

How likely is it that this whole terrible earthquake/tsunami happened because US/Indonesian army folks thought it was a good idea to use a big bomb to quash the Aceh independence movement?

Yes, scalar does have a "fingerprint." They typically lack a p-wave when they are a "scalar EM hit". The Kobe earthquake in Japan, and one in San Fran a while back, I know, were missing this p wave. Likely if someone queried the people...they would relate the same thing:...

Sept AGSO Report On Tsunami-Quake Danger
For SW Sumatra
From Harry Mason
 orbitx@bigpond.com
12-29-4

Dear Jeff,

Interestingly with amazing prescient "co-incidence" The Australian GeoScience Organisation - AGSO - ran an article in its AUSTGEO NEWS for September 2004 about the risk factors for earthquakes and consequent tsunamis developing off the SW coast of Sumatra.

See attached pdf file - note the AGSO model for a possible SW Sumatra tsunamis and compare with the recent tsunamis animation just posted on the Jeff Rense site (from  http://iri.columbia.edu/~lareef/tsunami/ ).

AGSO got it nearly right but failed to (publicly at least ) predict that multiple earthquakes would let rip along most of the entire Sumatra-Andaman shear zone and that this would create multiple tsunamis and that these would funnel up the Bay of Bengal and across to Sri Lanka with such DEADLY force. The AGSO model showed the tsunamis vectoring SW into the un-inhabited section of the Indian Ocean.

This is similar to the amazing coincidence of the Worlds foremost authorities on earthquakes and seismic events being in Tokyo for a major conference when disaster struck Kobe a few years ago, or the marine survey being located off shore of southern New Guinea when the "on fire" tsunamis hit their north coast. None of these coincidences on their own are out of the question BUT when taken as a class one has to seriously wonder...

The BIG question is was this AGSO report just an amazing co-incidence or were they asked to model the SW Sumatra area by someone wanting to know what might happen if the plate boundary was tickled by energetic scalar EM ??? The same area of the 9.2 richter quake has been the site of deliberate use of scalar EM to whip up cyclones (hurricanes). A Malaysian newspaper ran that story a few years back implying a deal between the Malaysian government and a Russian state owned company to create a cyclone to push smoke from Indonesian forrest fires offshore. The actual cyclone creation event was visible on weather imagery shown on West Australian TV during the 7.00pm ABC weather news. It consisted of an annular ring say 50 miles in diameter consisting of multiple micro spirals (each say 5 miles in diameter) in edge contact - each micro-spiral being created sequentially until the annular ring was closed back to the first micro-spiral. Within a day the cyclone centred upon the angular ring had begun to spin up to full power.

If AGSO were "simply" being prescient their guys deserve high accolade. However prescience is not something for which AGSO is normally known.

However if the study was requested from "on high" we have a potential conduit to the source.

It will be interesting to see if AGSO suffers senior staff loss by suicide in the new year.

Best Regards,

Harry Mason

Aceh Province stands out amid the disaster's deepening toll, not only because it was closest to the earthquake's epicenter, but because the disaster has intruded on a region in the grip of a civil war. Aceh has been under martial law since May of last year, when five months of peace talks between separatist rebels and the government broke down.

The president at the time, Megawati Sukarnoputri, dispatched 40,000 troops to secure the province, whose oil and gas resources are vital to government revenue. The government declared a cease-fire after the earthquake, and observers said the truce appeared to be holding, allowing relief workers to tend to survivors.

If I were to rig earthquake/tsunami...I'd hit Indian Ocean because... 29.Dec.2004 21:50

I'd rig it in the Indian ocean area, because there is nothing in the way of warning systems. ONLY PLACE WITHOUT TSUNAMI WARNING SYSTEM. Last tsunami: 500 years ago there. Therefore, you could really guage your Machiavellian effects of a hypothetical HAARP operation on an unsuspecting population. This hypothetical surprise would be closer to an actual test of an eco-terrorism scalar hit.

"A tsunami last crossed the Indian Ocean in 1509. Scientists had not expected anything close to the quake and killer waves that struck Sunday because 90 percent of tsunamis occur in the Pacific Ocean, where there are warning systems."

U.S. alibi: "WE EMAILED THEM! umm, after Sumatra was hit! Did they get it?" 29.Dec.2004 22:19

Scientists in USA saw tsunami coming, opted for email warning after 20 minute standdown
[I sure hope I get an email warning form letter (sic)--after a national disaster.]

In fact, the detector buoys that monitor tsunami surges have been available for decades. None placed there though.

Tue Dec 28, 7:11 AM ET

By Dan Vergano, USA TODAY

***Minutes after*** a massive earthquake rocked the Indian Ocean on Sunday, international ocean monitors knew that a tsunami would likely follow. But they didn't know whom to tell. [so they say]

[Though we knew within minutes, we took our time and crafted a great memo! Hey, didn't you read it! Didn't you get it!] "We put out a bulletin within 20 minutes, technically as fast as we could do it," says Jeff LaDouce of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. LaDouce says e-mails were dispatched to Indonesian officials, but he doesn't know what happened to the information. ["All that was important was to shift the blame from us to them, and once that was accomplished we could sit back and watch!" This ignores that the US only warned Indonesia and Australia--and kept other countries in the dark.]

The [red herring] problem is that Sunday's earthquake struck the unmonitored Indian Ocean. An international system of buoys and monitoring stations - the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center based in Hawaii - spans the Pacific, alerting nations there to any oncoming disasters. But no such system guards the Indian Ocean. [The issue is the lack of typical warning about earthquakes--which was stood down.]

(There isn't one in the Atlantic Ocean because there are comparatively few earthquakes there.[yet!]
LaDouce says efforts are being made in the Caribbean to set up a warning system after last year's tsunami caused by the volcanic collapse on the island of Montserrat.)

"Sumatra has an ample history of great earthquakes, which makes the lack of a tsunami warning system in the Indian Ocean all the more tragic," says geologist Brian Atwater of the U.S. Geological Survey (news - web sites). "Everyone knew Sumatra was a loaded gun."[heh heh, freudian slip?]

On Monday, Asian government officials, notably in India, discussed plans to coordinate efforts to develop an Indian Ocean system. "It's a people problem, not a technology problem," says geophysicist Teng-fong Wong of the State University of New York-Stony Brook. "Governments just have to cooperate." [and do what we say, or else.]

disaster relief = military occupation 30.Dec.2004 13:34

luna moth link


The bouy sensors would have also notified about the tsunami, but most likely the earthquake was registered at the epicenter hours before the wave arrived and a warning could have been sent just as easily with enough time for people to evacuate..

That brings to attention the eagerness of the US military to provide humanitarian relief after the disaster already happened. There is of course the obligation on the part of the world's last superpower to "help out" those in need. Forget the fact that the slaughter of so many people was preventable. Not to mention the coastal overdevelopment is a direct result of the hotel tourist trade spawned by WTO imperialism that benefits G8 nations..

Then relief agencies like Red Cross and others rush in to help, once again looking like heroes. The US media broadcasts the body count and people donate huge sums of money to disaster relief agencies..

The Indonesian government has long waited for disaster to strike the areas of autonomous groups like the Tamil Tigers. What better way to squash indigenous resistance than to have the US military there for "disaster relief support"??

Prevention of death and catastrophe is never in the interest of the US government and their corporate puppet masters. Whether a detectable tsunami or US funded dictators like Hitler, Saddam, etc. the US creates the monster than rushes in as heroe to help the helpless victems..

So what you're saying is that the US has the technological might to cause global disasters just to get oil? And they have used said technology which released enough energy to wobble a planet just to gas up a Hummvee?

I think different kinds of wobble (spin) should be considered.

Indonesia has the largest Muslim population in the world outside the Middle East. Would this administration use this catastrophe to win "hearts and minds" in their war on terrorism? Simple opportunism is by far more cost effective than the use of a superweapon.

Another point to consider is does the US Government have fleets of hospital ships the size of aircraft carriers to render aid? Entire squadrons of heavy lift cargo aircraft dedicated to relief efforts? Do they have divisions of 'citizen medics' to radiply deploy and "liberate" suffering anywhere in the world?

No. This country has no civilian infrastructure to quickly send the amount of equipment needed in a relief effort of this magnitude. It's all tied up in "providing for the common defense". So again it's more cost effective that a military conquistador would be put in charge of relief efforts. It would simply be a question of logistics.

To be Devil's Advocate, you have to intentionally ignore the US's selective warnings which were the only rationale why so many deaths occurred. This provides a context for the invasion.

Plus, you have to ignore the warning that was received by the US military bases at the same time...


Pleased to meet you... 01.Jan.2005 06:15

Devil's Advocate link


Unless you were at one of the US bases which received these messages or a copy of the tramsmission was made public, the context of invasion is speculation at best. But it may point to another front on the war on terrorism that has never been made public.

So please allow me to speculate as well.

It is not unlikely that there has been covert US submarine activity in that area ready to send commandos to the shores of some island or launch cruise missiles at some 'terrorist stronghold'. It is also possible that they inadvertingly discovered the seismic data in the area, and did not disclose it to the general public for fear of jepordizing their underwater operations. However the US Government did notify it's bases in the area.

Realizing the devastation witholding this information had done (another 100,000+ dead in the War on/of Terror), political hacks took time, say three days, to come up with some damage control. The best they came up with was to say nothing and throw the survivors a band aid in the form on "stingy" relief funds.

NAZI BUSH REGIME's ENVIRO/HAARP-REICHSTAG FIRE: seize Aceh oil militarily as "rescue"
author: various
Why has a senior commander involved in the invasion of Iraq been assigned to lead the US emergency relief program? "Lieutenant General Blackman was previously Chief of Staff...leading the Marines into Baghdad..."

US Foreknowledge and Selective Warnings. Similar to 9-11, the automatic warning system STANDS DOWN to allow a terrorist act occur, hypothetically using the HAARP technology, to justify upcoming militarization of the area with US troops in an area rich with oil. Whether HAARP or otherwise, the associated issue would be the standdown of the automatic earthquake warning system among its subscribing member nations. This is CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE--U.S. ONLY WARNS AUSTRALIA AND INDONESIA--LEFT OTHERS IN AN ENVIRONMENTAL REICHSTAG FIRE TO DIE FOR POLITIAL GAIN, and then invaded oil rich Aceh with over 2000 U.S. Marines and two aircraft carriers with armed helicopters.

No one tells the member countries about the "earthquake". However, the US DOES WARN its military base in the aera. And from this military base, part of the invasion of Aceh is proceeding with TWO AIRCRAFT CARRIERS and led by the U.S.'s pre-emptive invasion of Iraq leadership. "In a bitter irony, part of this operation is being coordinated out of America's Naval base in Diego Garcia. The US warns its naval base, though fails to warn Indian Ocean rim governments. "...the strike group, with its seven ships, 2,100 Marines and 1,400 sailors aboard, also has four Cobra helicopters..."

Foreknowledge of A Natural Disaster
Washington was aware that a deadly Tidal Wave was building up in the Indian Ocean

Michel Chossudovsky | December 29 2004

The US Military and the State Department were given advanced warning. America's Navy base on the island of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean was notified.

Why were fishermen in India, Sri Lanka and Thailand not provided with the same warnings as the US Navy and the US State Department?

Why did the US State Department remain mum on the existence of an impending catastrophe?

With a modern communications system, why did the information not get out? By email, telephone, fax, satellite TV... ?

It could have saved the lives of more than 80,000 people. And the death toll is rising.

The earthquake was a Magnitude 9.0 on the Richter scale, among the highest in recorded history. US authorities had initially recorded 8.0 on the Richter scale.

As confirmed by several reports, US scientists in Hawaii, had advanced knowledge regarding an impending catastrophe, but failed to contact their Asian counterparts.

Charles McCreery of the Pacific Warning Center in Hawaii confirmed that his team tried desperately to get in touch with his counterparts in Asia. According to McCreery, director of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's center in Honolulu, the team did its utmost to contact the countries. (The NOAA in Hawaii's Report at  http://www.noaanews.noaa.gov/stories2004/s2357.htm ).

His team contacted the US State Department, which apparently contacted the Asian governments. The Indian government confirms that no such warning was received. (The Hindu, 27 Dec 2004)

Nine (9.0) on the Richter scale: The Director of the Hawaii Warning Center stated that "they did not know" that the earthquake would generate a deadly tidal wave until it had hit Sri Lanka, more than one and a half hours later, at 2.30 GMT. (see Timeline below)

"Not until the deadly wave hit Sri Lanka and the scientists in Honolulu saw news reports of the damage there did they recognize what was happening... 'Then we knew there was something moving across the Indian Ocean,' said Charles McCreery. (quoted in the NYT, 28 Dec 2004 ).

This statement is at odds with the Timeline of the tidal wave disaster. Thailand was hit almost an hour before Sri Lanka and the news reports were already out. Surely, these reports out of Thailand were known to the scientists in Hawaii, not to mention the office of Sec. Colin Powell, well before the tidal wave reached Sri Lanka.

''We wanted to try to do something, but without a plan in place then, it was not an effective way to issue a warning, or to have it acted upon,'' Dr. McCreery said. ''There would have still been some time -- not a lot of time, but some time -- if there was something that could be done in Madagascar, or on the coast of Africa.''

The above statement is also inconsistent.

The tidal wave reached the East African coastline several hours after it reached The Maldives islands. According to news reports, Male, the capital of the Maldives was hit three hours after the earthquake, at approximately 4.00 GMT. By that time everybody around the World knew.

It is worth noting that the US Navy was fully aware of the deadly tidal wave, because the Navy was on the Pacific Warning Center's list of contacts. Moreover, America's strategic Naval base on the island of Diego Garcia had also been notified. Although directly in the path of the tidal wave (see animated chart below), the Diego Garcia military base reported "no damage".

"One of the few places in the Indian Ocean that got the message of the quake was Diego Garcia, a speck of an island with a United States Navy base, because the Pacific warning center's contact list includes the Navy. Finding the appropriate people in Sri Lanka or India was harder." (NYT, 28 Dec 2004, emphasis added)

Now how hard is it to pick up the phone and call Sri Lanka?

According to Charles McCreery, director of the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center.

"We don't have contacts in our address book for anybody in that part of the world."

Only after the first waves hit Sri Lanka did workers at National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre [PTWC] and others in Hawaii start making phone calls to US diplomats in Madagascar and Mauritius in an attempt to head off further disaster.

"We didn't have a contact in place where you could just pick up the phone," Dolores Clark, spokeswoman for the International Tsunami Information Centre in Hawaii said. "We were starting from scratch."

These statement on the surface are inconsistent, since several Indian Ocean Asian countries are in fact members of the Tsunami Warning System.

There are 26 member countries of the International Coordination Group for the Tsunami Warning System , including Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia. All these countries would normally be in the address book of the PTWC, which works in close coordination with its sister organization the ICGTWS , which has its offices in Honolulu at the headquarters of the National Weather Service Pacific Region Headquarters in downtown Honolulu.

The mandate of the ICGTWS is to "assist member states in establishing national warning systems, and makes information available on current technologies for tsunami warning systems."

Australia and Indonesia were notified. The US Congress is to investigate why the US government did not notify all the Indian Ocean nations in the affected area: "Only two countries in the affected region, Indonesia and Australia, received the warning"

"Although Thailand belongs to the international tsunami-warning network, its west coast does not have the system's wave sensors mounted on ocean buoys.

The northern tip of the earthquake fault is located near the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, and tsunamis appear to have rushed eastward toward the Thai resort of Phuket.

"They had no tidal gauges and they had no warning," said Waverly Person, a geophysicist at the National Earthquake Information Centre in Golden, Colorado, U.S., which monitors seismic activity worldwide. "There are no buoys in the Indian Ocean and that's where this tsunami occurred."" (Hindu, 27 Dec 2004)

The issue of the Ocean sensors is a Red Herring

We we were not able to warn them because we had no sensors in the Indian Ocean: This argument is a Red Herring.

We are not dealing with advanced information based on the Ocean sensors, but on an emergency warning transmitted in the immediate wake of the earthquake. The latter took place at 00.58 GMT on the 26th of Dec. That information was sent to The State Department and the US Navy.

With modern communications, the information of an impending disaster could have been sent around the World in a matter of minutes, by email, by telephone, by fax, not to mention by live satellite Television.

Coastguards, municipalities, local governments, tourist hotels, etc. could have been warned.

According to Tsunami Society President Prof. Tad Murty of the University of Manitoba:

'there's no reason for a single individual to get killed in a tsunami,' since most areas had anywhere from 25 minutes to four hours before a wave hit. So, once again, because of indifference and corruption thousands of innocent people have died needlessly." (Calgary Sun, 28 Dec 2004)

Key Questions

1. Why were the Indian Ocean countries' governments not informed?

Were there "guidelines" from the US military or the State Department regarding the release of an advanced warning?

According to the statement of the Hawaii based PTWC, advanced warning was released but on a selective basis. Indonesia was already hit, so the warning was in any event redundant and Australia was several thousand miles from the epicentre of the earthquake and was, therefore, under no immediate threat.

2. Did US authorities monitoring seismographic data have knowledge of the earthquake prior to its actual occurrence at 00.57 GMT on the 26th of December?

The question is whether there were indications of abnormal seismic activity prior to 01.00 GMT on the 26th of Dec.

The US Geological Survey confirmed that the earthquake which triggered the tidal wave measured 9.0 on the Richter scale and was the fourth largest quake since 1900. In such cases, one would expect evidence of abnormal seismic activity before the actual occurrence of a major earthquake.

3. Why is the US military Calling the Shots on Humanitarian Relief

Why in the wake of the disaster, is the US military (rather than civilian humanitarian/aid organizations operating under UN auspices) taking a lead role?

The US Pacific Command has been designated to coordinate the channeling of emergency relief? Marine Corps Lt. Gen. Rusty Blackman, commander of the 3rd Marine Expeditionary Force based in Okinawa, has been designated to lead the emergency relief program

Lieutenant General Blackman was previously Chief of Staff for Coalition Forces Land Component Command, responsible for leading the Marines into Baghdad during "Operation Iraqi Freedom."

Three "Marine disaster relief assessment teams" under Blackman's command have been sent to Thailand, Sri Lanka and Indonesia.

US military aircraft are conducting observation missions.

In a bitter irony, part of this operation is being coordinated out of America's Naval base in Diego Garcia, which was not struck by the tidal wave. Meanwhile, "USS Abraham Lincoln carrier strike group, which was in Hong Kong when the earthquake and tsunamis struck, has been diverted to the Gulf of Thailand to support recovery operations" (Press Conference of Pacific Command,  http://www.defenselink.mil/news/Dec2004/n12292004_2004122905.html ).

Two Aircraft Carriers have been sent to the region.

Why is it necessary for the US to mobilize so much military equipment? The pattern is unprecedented:

Conway said the Lincoln carrier strike group has 12 helicopters embarked that he said could be "extremely valuable" in recovery missions.

An additional 25 helicopters are aboard USS Bonhomme Richard, headed to the Bay of Bengal. Conway said the expeditionary strike group was in Guam and is forgoing port visits in Guam and Singapore and expects to arrive in the Bay of Bengal by Jan. 7.

Conway said the strike group, with its seven ships, 2,100 Marines and 1,400 sailors aboard, also has four Cobra helicopters that will be instrumented in reconnaissance efforts.

Because fresh water is one of the greatest needs in the region, Fargo has ordered seven ships each capable of producing 90,000 gallons of fresh water a day to the region. Conway said five of these ships are pre-positioned in Guam and two will come from Diego Garcia.

A field hospital ship pre-positioned in Guam would also be ordered to the region, depending on findings of the disaster relief assessment teams and need, Conway said. (Ibid)

Why has a senior commander involved in the invasion of Iraq been assigned to lead the US emergency relief program?

Note: extreme seismic activity prior to 01.00 GMT


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Richter Scale

US scientists in Hawaii had initially indicated that the earthquake was of a magnitude of 8.0 (ten times weaker than in the case a 9.0 earthquake on the Richter scale).

How can an error of this nature be made, with very sophisticated measuring equipment?

According to Natural Resources Canada:
"The magnitude of an earthquake is a measure of the amount of energy released. Each earthquake has a unique magnitude assigned to it. This is based on the amplitude of seismic waves measured at a number of seismograph sites, after being corrected for distance from the earthquake. Magnitude estimates often change by up to 0.2 units, as additional data are included in the estimate.

The Richter scale is logarithmic, that is an increase of 1 magnitude unit represents a factor of ten times in amplitude. The seismic waves of a magnitude 6 earthquake are 10 times greater in amplitude than those of a magnitude 5 earthquake. However, in terms of energy release, a magnitude 6 earthquake is about 31 times greater than a magnitude 5. The intensity of an earthquake varies greatly according to distance from the earthquake, ground conditions, and other factors. The Modified Mercalli Intensity Scale is used to describe earthquake effects." (  http://www.pgc.nrcan.gc.ca/seismo/eqinfo/richter.htm )

The following criteria are given by Natural Resources, Canada:
M=8: "Great" earthquake, great destruction, loss of life over several 100 km (1906 San Francisco, 1949 Queen Charlotte Islands) .

M=9: Rare great earthquake, major damage over a large region over 1000 km (Chile 1960, Alaska 1964, and west coast of British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, 1700) .

Title: HAARP-watch: fake HAARP tremors rock earth deep beneath San Andreas Fault
Author: haarp-watch, Michel Chossudovsky
Date: 2004.12.11 07:02
Description: Mysterious tremors deep beneath the San Andreas Fault near the quake-prone town of Parkfield are shaking the earth's brittle crust, FAR BELOW THE REGION WHERE EARTHQUAKES NORMALLY STRIKE -- and scientists say THEY CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHAT'S HAPPENING or what the motions mean. Seismic researchers are monitoring the strange vibrations..."..."We see this kind of tremor activity inside volcanoes like Mount St. Helens," Nadeau said, "but that's due to the movement of rising magma, and in the tremors we've recorded there's NO EVIDENCE OF VOLCANISM and NO SEISMIC WAVES TYPICAL OF ORDINARY EARTHQUAKES." "In the US, the technology is being perfected under the High-frequency Active Aural Research Program (HAARP) as part of the ("Star Wars") Strategic Defence Initiative (SDI). Recent scientific evidence suggests that HAARP is fully operational and has the ability of potentially triggering floods, droughts, hurricanes and earthquakes. From a military standpoint, HAARP is a weapon of mass destruction. Potentially, it constitutes an instrument of conquest capable of selectively destabilising agricultural and ecological systems of entire regions."

"A short scan of the verbiage pertaining to HAARP in this post shows no theories offered as to how a high-powered radio-frequency transmitter like HAARP can cause seismic irregularities."

I'm sure other people are curious so here is more:

SAID IN APRIL 1997 BY THE U.S. SECRETARY OF DEFENSE, WILLIAM COHEN: "Others [terrorists] are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves... So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations... It's real, and that's the reason why we have to intensify our [counterterrorism] efforts." --- Secretary of Defense William Cohen at an April 1997 counterterrorism conference sponsored by former Senator Sam Nunn. Quoted from DoD News Briefing, Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen, Q&A at the Conference on Terrorism, Weapons of Mass Destruction, and U.S. Strategy, University of Georgia, Athens, Apr. 28, 1997.

"In short,...the Secretary of Defense of the United States confirmed that there are indeed novel kinds of EM weapons, right now and have been for some time, which have been and are being used to (1) initiate earthquakes, (2) engineer the weather and climate, and (3) initiate the eruption of volcanoes. We wrote about those exact uses of the weaponry decades ago. Several nations now have such weapons. Three of them (two on one side and the other on a hostile side) are even firing practice shots into Western Australia, as a convenient test range." [or undersea Indian ocean, just to see what their power can do].

Unusual Weather Patterns (2003-2004) of Bush/Pentagon's global enviro-warfare 28.Dec.2004 19:44
more link

Environmental warfare is defined as the intentional modification or manipulation of the natural ecology, such as climate and weather, earth systems such as the ionosphere, magnetosphere, tectonic plate system, and/or the triggering of seismic events (earthquakes) to cause intentional physical, economic, and psycho-social, and physical destruction to an intended target geophysical or population location, as part of strategic or tactical war." (Eco News)


TABLE 1: Unusual Weather Patterns (2003-2004)

Alex, Ivan, Frances, Charley and Jeanne (August-September 2004): Four destructive hurricanes and a tropical rain storm occur in a sequence, within a short period of time. Unprecedented in hurricane history in the Caribbean, the island of Grenada is completely devastated: 37 people died and roughly two-thirds of the island's 100,000 inhabitants have been left homeless, in Haiti, more than two thousand people have died and tens of thousands have been made homeless. The Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Cuba and the Bahamas have also been devastated.

In the US, the damage hitting several Southern states including Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and the Carolinas is the highest in US history.

Brazil March 2004: The first-ever hurricane formed in the South Atlantic, striking Brazil with 90 mph winds and causing up to a dozen deaths. "Meteorologists were left scratching their heads in bewilderment as the familiar swirl of clouds, complete with a well-defined eye, appeared in an oceanic basin where none had been spotted before." (WP, 19 September 2004, See also  http://www.climate.org/topics/climate/brazil_hurricane.shtml )

Japan, China and the Korean Peninsula: "Japan has suffered its highest number of typhoon strikes on record, and the storms -- which hit at the rate of one a week for much of the summer -- wreaked havoc in Taiwan, China and the Korean Peninsula." (ibid)

China (August 2004): Typhoon Rananim, the worst in 48 years, has killed at least 164 people and injured more than 1800 in China's Zhejiang province. Rananim is confirmed by China's meteorological authorities to be the strongest to hit the Chinese mainland since 1956. It is estimated to have disrupted the life of some 13 million people,  http://www.cma.gov.cn/ywwz/englishread.php...

United States May 2003 : 562 tornadoes hit the United States, the highest in recorded history, far exceeding the previous monthly peak of 399 in June 1992.(CNN, July 3, 2003,  http://www.cnn.com/2003/WEATHER/07/03/wmo.extremes/ )

India, early 2003: a pre-monsoon heat wave caused peak temperatures of between 45 and 49 degrees Celsius (113 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit), killing more than 1400 people.(Ibid)

Sri Lanka, "heavy rainfalls from Tropical Cyclone 01B exacerbated already wet conditions, causing flooding and landslides and more than 300 fatalities." (Ibid)

Western Europe Summer 2003: experienced extremely high Summer temperatures. "Switzerland experienced its hottest June [2003] in at least 250 years while in the south of France average temperatures were between 5 and 7 degrees Celsius (9 to 13 degrees Fahrenheit) warmer than the long term average. England and Wales also experienced their hottest month since 1976." (Ibid)

The Ultimate Weapon of Mass Destruction: "Owning the Weather" for Military Use
by Michel Chossudovsky

www.globalresearch.ca 27 September 2004

The URL of this article is:  http://globalresearch.ca/articles/CHO409F.html

This article is follow-up on an earlier study by the author entitled Washington's New World Order Weapons Have the Ability to Trigger Climate Change, Third World Resurgence, January 2001,  http://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/CHO201A.html



What are the underlying causes of extreme weather instability, which has ravaged every major region of the World in the course of the last few years?

. . .

A study released in July 2003, by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) places the blame, without further examination, at the feet of global warming:

"These record extreme events [high temperatures, low temperatures and high rainfall amounts and droughts] all go into calculating the monthly and annual averages which, for temperatures, have been gradually increasing over the past 100 years," the WMO said in its statement (CNN, July 3, 2003,  http://www.cnn.com/2003/WEATHER/07/03/wmo.extremes/ )

While global warming is undoubtedly an important factor, it does not fully account for these extreme and unusual weather patterns.

Weather Warfare

The significant expansion in America's weather warfare arsenal, which is a priority of the Department of Defense is not a matter for debate or discussion. While, environmentalists blame the Bush administration for not having signed the Kyoto protocol, the issue of "weather warfare", namely the manipulation of weather patterns for military use is never mentioned.

The US Air Force has the capability of manipulating climate either for testing purposes or for outright military-intelligence use. These capabilities extend to the triggering of floods, hurricanes, droughts and earthquakes. In recent years, large amounts of money have been allocated by the US Department of Defense to further developing and perfecting these capabilities.

Weather modification will become a part of domestic and international security and could be done unilaterally... It could have offensive and defensive applications and even be used for deterrence purposes. The ability to generate precipitation, fog, and storms on earth or to modify space weather, ... and the production of artificial weather all are a part of an integrated set of technologies which can provide substantial increase in US, or degraded capability in an adversary, to achieve global awareness, reach, and power.

did you note that people above basically admitted that though Sumatra was only "minutes" from the tsunami when USGS noted it, they instead were presumably doing something for "20 minutes," and only after Sumatra/Aceh (oil area) was hit, then the US sent their indirect "email warning" 20 minutes later. Hypothetically, an expedited phone call to police or the main government on Sumatra would have definitely preserved more human lives. No one did this though. Surely this is criminal negligence and criminal forethought particularly in regards to Aceh.

Or, sit back and watch corp media. Here's what you would see. ABC talked up (with very detailed graphics already at the ready) Atlantic tsunamis on the morning of Dec 30. No one mentioned HAARP though. I was channel flipping, and I was shocked to see ABC repeating the same "Atlantic tsunamis" story over and over and over. I caught it twice myself and I was only channel flipping.

5.

How likely is it that this whole terrible earthquake/tsunami happened because US/Indonesian army folks thought it was a good idea to use a big bomb to quash the Aceh independence movement?

"I think it would be too obvious to too many scientists that something had happened at the bottom of the ocean to instigate an earthquake."

You mean scientists like the ones who got censored by the corporate
media when they exposed the explosions taking place at the WTC
*before* the WTC buildings went down on 9/11?

Yeah, I think they would find it a little too obvious.
But then, who could they reach out to with that information when the
big media would not let them tell about it? ;-)

Yes, scalar does have a "fingerprint." They typically lack a p-wave when they are a "scalar EM hit". The Kobe earthquake in Japan, and one in San Fran a while back, I know, were missing this p wave. Likely if someone queried the people...they would relate the same thing:...

Sept AGSO Report On Tsunami-Quake Danger
For SW Sumatra
From Harry Mason
 orbitx@bigpond.com
12-29-4

Dear Jeff,

Interestingly with amazing prescient "co-incidence" The Australian GeoScience Organisation - AGSO - ran an article in its AUSTGEO NEWS for September 2004 about the risk factors for earthquakes and consequent tsunamis developing off the SW coast of Sumatra.

See attached pdf file - note the AGSO model for a possible SW Sumatra tsunamis and compare with the recent tsunamis animation just posted on the Jeff Rense site (from  http://iri.columbia.edu/~lareef/tsunami/ ).

AGSO got it nearly right but failed to (publicly at least ) predict that multiple earthquakes would let rip along most of the entire Sumatra-Andaman shear zone and that this would create multiple tsunamis and that these would funnel up the Bay of Bengal and across to Sri Lanka with such DEADLY force. The AGSO model showed the tsunamis vectoring SW into the un-inhabited section of the Indian Ocean.

This is similar to the amazing coincidence of the Worlds foremost authorities on earthquakes and seismic events being in Tokyo for a major conference when disaster struck Kobe a few years ago, or the marine survey being located off shore of southern New Guinea when the "on fire" tsunamis hit their north coast. None of these coincidences on their own are out of the question BUT when taken as a class one has to seriously wonder...

The BIG question is was this AGSO report just an amazing co-incidence or were they asked to model the SW Sumatra area by someone wanting to know what might happen if the plate boundary was tickled by energetic scalar EM ??? The same area of the 9.2 richter quake has been the site of deliberate use of scalar EM to whip up cyclones (hurricanes). A Malaysian newspaper ran that story a few years back implying a deal between the Malaysian government and a Russian state owned company to create a cyclone to push smoke from Indonesian forrest fires offshore. The actual cyclone creation event was visible on weather imagery shown on West Australian TV during the 7.00pm ABC weather news. It consisted of an annular ring say 50 miles in diameter consisting of multiple micro spirals (each say 5 miles in diameter) in edge contact - each micro-spiral being created sequentially until the annular ring was closed back to the first micro-spiral. Within a day the cyclone centred upon the angular ring had begun to spin up to full power.

If AGSO were "simply" being prescient their guys deserve high accolade. However prescience is not something for which AGSO is normally known.

However if the study was requested from "on high" we have a potential conduit to the source.

It will be interesting to see if AGSO suffers senior staff loss by suicide in the new year.

Best Regards,

Harry Mason

Aceh Province stands out amid the disaster's deepening toll, not only because it was closest to the earthquake's epicenter, but because the disaster has intruded on a region in the grip of a civil war. Aceh has been under martial law since May of last year, when five months of peace talks between separatist rebels and the government broke down.

The president at the time, Megawati Sukarnoputri, dispatched 40,000 troops to secure the province, whose oil and gas resources are vital to government revenue. The government declared a cease-fire after the earthquake, and observers said the truce appeared to be holding, allowing relief workers to tend to survivors.

If I were to rig earthquake/tsunami...I'd hit Indian Ocean because... 29.Dec.2004 21:50
. link

I'd rig it in the Indian ocean area, because there is nothing in the way of warning systems. ONLY PLACE WITHOUT TSUNAMI WARNING SYSTEM. Last tsunami: 500 years ago there. Therefore, you could really guage your Machiavellian effects of a hypothetical HAARP operation on an unsuspecting population. This hypothetical surprise would be closer to an actual test of an eco-terrorism scalar hit.

"A tsunami last crossed the Indian Ocean in 1509. Scientists had not expected anything close to the quake and killer waves that struck Sunday because 90 percent of tsunamis occur in the Pacific Ocean, where there are warning systems."

U.S. alibi: "WE EMAILED THEM! umm, after Sumatra was hit! Did they get it?" 29.Dec.2004 22:19
this is criminal negligence! link

Scientists in USA saw tsunami coming, opted for email warning after 20 minute standdown
[I sure hope I get an email warning form letter (sic)--after a national disaster.]

In fact, the detector buoys that monitor tsunami surges have been available for decades. None placed there though.

Tue Dec 28, 7:11 AM ET

By Dan Vergano, USA TODAY

***Minutes after*** a massive earthquake rocked the Indian Ocean on Sunday, international ocean monitors knew that a tsunami would likely follow. But they didn't know whom to tell. [so they say]

[Though we knew within minutes, we took our time and crafted a great memo! Hey, didn't you read it! Didn't you get it!] "We put out a bulletin within 20 minutes, technically as fast as we could do it," says Jeff LaDouce of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. LaDouce says e-mails were dispatched to Indonesian officials, but he doesn't know what happened to the information. ["All that was important was to shift the blame from us to them, and once that was accomplished we could sit back and watch!" This ignores that the US only warned Indonesia and Australia--and kept other countries in the dark.]

The [red herring] problem is that Sunday's earthquake struck the unmonitored Indian Ocean. An international system of buoys and monitoring stations - the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center based in Hawaii - spans the Pacific, alerting nations there to any oncoming disasters. But no such system guards the Indian Ocean. [The issue is the lack of typical warning about earthquakes--which was stood down.]

(There isn't one in the Atlantic Ocean because there are comparatively few earthquakes there.[yet!]
LaDouce says efforts are being made in the Caribbean to set up a warning system after last year's tsunami caused by the volcanic collapse on the island of Montserrat.)

"Sumatra has an ample history of great earthquakes, which makes the lack of a tsunami warning system in the Indian Ocean all the more tragic," says geologist Brian Atwater of the U.S. Geological Survey (news - web sites). "Everyone knew Sumatra was a loaded gun."[heh heh, freudian slip?]

On Monday, Asian government officials, notably in India, discussed plans to coordinate efforts to develop an Indian Ocean system. "It's a people problem, not a technology problem," says geophysicist Teng-fong Wong of the State University of New York-Stony Brook. "Governments just have to cooperate." [and do what we say, or else.]

Tsunamis as U.S. enviromental blitzkrieg war? Regardless, this is being used to expand the American Nazi Anschluss as they Americans surf into oil-rich Aceh armed to the teeth on a 50 foot high wave.

The bouy sensors would have also notified about the tsunami, but most likely the earthquake was registered at the epicenter hours before the wave arrived and a warning could have been sent just as easily with enough time for people to evacuate..

That brings to attention the eagerness of the US military to provide humanitarian relief after the disaster already happened. There is of course the obligation on the part of the world's last superpower to "help out" those in need. Forget the fact that the slaughter of so many people was preventable. Not to mention the coastal overdevelopment is a direct result of the hotel tourist trade spawned by WTO imperialism that benefits G8 nations..

Then relief agencies like Red Cross and others rush in to help, once again looking like heroes. The US media broadcasts the body count and people donate huge sums of money to disaster relief agencies..

The Indonesian government has long waited for disaster to strike the areas of autonomous groups like the Tamil Tigers. What better way to squash indigenous resistance than to have the US military there for "disaster relief support"??

Prevention of death and catastrophe is never in the interest of the US government and their corporate puppet masters. Whether a detectable tsunami or US funded dictators like Hitler, Saddam, etc. the US creates the monster than rushes in as heroe to help the helpless victems..

Again, things are starting to look completely different
from the "official" versions of events.

Will "W" be allowed to be "inaugurated" again?

Or will the true patriots still alive in the defence

Lookout Malaysia, Thailand and India; World Vision is bringing humanitarian aid to your nations. The leader of this organization has ties to the CIA and is personal friends with the Bush crime family. It is a known spook infiltration front for the Nazi criminals running this phoney war on terrorism.
This Southeast Asian sector, especially Malaysia, is currently resisting the fiat banking scam run by the IMF and world bank. Maybe this tragedy is being used by the global crime syndicates as a warning to the leaders to cooperate with their scam. A sophisticated version of the Mafia trick of throwing a brick through a shopkeepers front window and then walking in and asking if the shopkeeper wants to buy their protection.

The Ummah Factor & Band Aid Logic 31.Dec.2004 06:03

So what you're saying is that the US has the technological might to cause global disasters just to get oil? And they have used said technology which released enough energy to wobble a planet just to gas up a Hummvee?

I think different kinds of wobble (spin) should be considered.

Indonesia has the largest Muslim population in the world outside the Middle East. Would this administration use this catastrophe to win "hearts and minds" in their war on terrorism? Simple opportunism is by far more cost effective than the use of a superweapon.

Another point to consider is does the US Government have fleets of hospital ships the size of aircraft carriers to render aid? Entire squadrons of heavy lift cargo aircraft dedicated to relief efforts? Do they have divisions of 'citizen medics' to radiply deploy and "liberate" suffering anywhere in the world?

No. This country has no civilian infrastructure to quickly send the amount of equipment needed in a relief effort of this magnitude. It's all tied up in "providing for the common defense". So again it's more cost effective that a military conquistador would be put in charge of relief efforts. It would simply be a question of logistics.

To be Devil's Advocate, you have to intentionally ignore the US's selective warnings which were the only rationale why so many deaths occurred. This provides a context for the invasion.

Plus, you have to ignore the warning that was received by the US military bases at the same time...

Unless you were at one of the US bases which received these messages or a copy of the tramsmission was made public, the context of invasion is speculation at best. But it may point to another front on the war on terrorism that has never been made public.

So please allow me to speculate as well.

It is not unlikely that there has been covert US submarine activity in that area ready to send commandos to the shores of some island or launch cruise missiles at some 'terrorist stronghold'. It is also possible that they inadvertingly discovered the seismic data in the area, and did not disclose it to the general public for fear of jepordizing their underwater operations. However the US Government did notify it's bases in the area.

Realizing the devastation witholding this information had done (another 100,000+ dead in the War on/of Terror), political hacks took time, say three days, to come up with some damage control. The best they came up with was to say nothing and throw the survivors a band aid in the form on "stingy" relief funds.

No warnings? 01.Jan.2005 17:28

What the hell?

No warnings yet on December 24th, there was an earthquake of 8.1 500 miles southeast of Tasmania near New Zealand with a subsequent aftershock of 6.1 later in the morning of the 24th.

"Sound bombing" or seismic tests of ocean floors to test for oil and gas had been carried out near the sites of the Tasmanian beachings of some 169 whales on Nov.28th. during a three day span. (See Acoustic Ecology Institute)

Something smells foul...AGAIN!

That Australian Article is Bullshit 01.Jan.2005 18:44

THEY KNEW

"In the past three days I have been impressed by the originality of the latest critiques of the evil Americans. The earthquake and tsunami apparently had something to do with global warming, environmentalists say, caused of course by greedy American motorists. Then there was the rumour that the US military base at Diego Garcia was forewarned of the impending disaster and presumably because of some CIA-approved plot to undermine Islamic movements in Indonesia and Thailand did nothing about it."

That article from the Murdock-owned The Austalian is wrong. The US military base Diego Garcia suffered no damage from the tsunami despite the fact that it was based in the Maldives Isles and in the path of the wave itself. It is obvious that Diego Garcia was warned. Another Australian newspaper (and even the Washington Post) reported this.

 http://www.abc.net.au/news/newsitems/200412/s1273118.htm

Last Update: Tuesday, December 28, 2004. 1:00pm (AEDT)
Diego Garcia military base 'undamaged' by tsunamis

The key United States military base in the Indian Ocean has been unaffected by the tsunamis which have devastated parts of Asia, The Washington Post has reported.

Diego Garcia, a British territory about 1,500 kilometres south of India, hosts about 3,200 US military personnel and civilian contractors and many US long-range bombers and Navy ships.

Lieutenant Colonel Bill Bigelow, a spokesman for US Pacific Command in Hawaii told the newspaper the US base was apparently safe.

"There are no reports of any damage there," Lt Col Bigelow said.

How could HAARP 01.Jan.2005 18:45

trigger earthquakes

When the high frequency (HF) electromagnatic energy it radiates is incapable of penetrating to the depths where earthquakes form (i.e. kilometers below the earth's surface)? Anyone with even the most cursory familiarity with HF electromagnetic radiation is aware that it can't penetrate any more than a few meters of ground or salt water.

sorry, that tells me 01.Jan.2005 22:18

nothing

About how HF waves could affect geological strata many kilometers below the earth's surface when they have difficulty penetrating even a few meters of it.

It's merely an illustration depicting the operation of an old Soviet radar system (which was about detecting aircraft and missiles like military radar systems usually are), together with some wording about "scalar flow" (a phrase that makes absolute nonsense from a physics standpoint).

Scalars, after all, are just single numbers. Numbers are abstractions that exist in our heads. They don't flow. "Flow" is only a concept that's meaningful when some sort of matter (fluid or gas, typically) is involved. And when flow is concerned, you want to know both the speed and its direction, i.e. two pieces of data not just one. In which case you need vectors of two or more numbers to convey that data, not scalars, and to represent the system being modeled.

you set up criteria you insinuate are important, then falsely use them? 02.Jan.2005 11:47

troll watch

You are the one interposing HF into this, not me.

Electro-magnetic manipulation for fake hurricanes, tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanos are so real, that as 'early' as 1997 the Sec. of Defense was talking about it publicly.


SAID IN APRIL 1997 BY THE U.S. SECRETARY OF DEFENSE, WILLIAM COHEN: "Others [terrorists] are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves... So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations... It's real, and that's the reason why we have to intensify our [counterterrorism] efforts." --- Secretary of Defense William Cohen at an April 1997 counterterrorism conference sponsored by former Senator Sam Nunn. Quoted from DoD News Briefing, Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen, Q&A at the Conference on Terrorism, Weapons of Mass Destruction, and U.S. Strategy, University of Georgia, Athens, Apr. 28, 1997.

"In short,...the Secretary of Defense of the United States confirmed that there are indeed novel kinds of EM weapons, right now and have been for some time, which have been and are being used to (1) initiate earthquakes, (2) engineer the weather and climate, and (3) initiate the eruption of volcanoes. We wrote about those exact uses of the weaponry decades ago. Several nations now have such weapons. Three of them (two on one side and the other on a hostile side) are even firing practice shots into Western Australia, as a convenient test range." [or undersea Indian ocean, just to see what their power can do].

I agree with you 02.Jan.2005 12:02

bonluva

I have a sneaking unfounded idea that this 9.0 earthquake in the ocean was most likely caused by human tampering with mother earth and her ever illusive natural resources. I also believe that the lack of warning was the result of the "powers that be" scrambling to distance themselves from the eminent disaster, making it seem as if it was a freak of nature. A quake of that magnitude is un heard of. They rated it a 9.0 or better but it may well have been stronger, because the richter scale only goes up to 9. I am by no means a conspiracy theorist but the whole thing makes ya go HMMMMMMM.

Correct. This is one of the fundamentals in EM-wave transmission that you learn when you take a class in university.

no i am not the one 02.Jan.2005 16:12

who broght HF radiation into this

The folks who brought up HAARP are the ones. Maybe you should look into just what HAARP stands for: *High-frequency* Active Auroral Research Program. HAARP transmits high-powered HF radio signals.

Anyone insinuating HAARP is causing earthquakes is thus by implication insinuating that HF electromagnetic radiation is causing earthquakes.

The fact that this apparently escapes some of the people here makes making allegations about HAARP and earthquakes me wonder a) if they know the least bit about what they're talking about, and b) whether they're worth paying attention to at all.

As well as c) whether or not they're just trolls out to pollute Indymedia with the crap they spew. (Hey, "troll watch", you started it with the troll insinuations. If you dish it out, then you should be willing to take it. Truce?)

making extraordinary claims

about HF radiation, so the onus is on YOU to prove things -- not me.

extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. how can haarp's radio waves penetrate deep underground? ever listened to a car radio when going through a big tunnel? radio dies. what happens to cell phones when going under the west hills on max? phones die, calls drop. radio waves can't penetrate deep underground.

it's almost as obvious a fact as the sky being blue.

HAARP works with scalar, which is different than the 19th century physics of your grandfather. Update your science.



-------------------------------

This article was prepared to provide a summary of the contents of a book written in 1995 which describes an entirely new class of weapons.

. . .

Press releases and other [dis]information from the military on HAARP continually downplay what it could do. Publicity documents insist that the HAARP project is no different than other ionospheric heaters operating safely throughout the world in places such as Arecibo, Puerto Rico, Tromso, Norway, and the former Soviet Union. However, a 1990 government document indicates that the radio-frequency (RF) power zap will drive the ionosphere to unnatural activities.

" ... at the highest HF powers available in the West, the instabilities commonly studied are approaching their maximum RF energy dissipative capability, beyond which the plasma processes will 'runaway' until the next limiting factor is reached."

If the military, in cooperation with the University of Alaska Fairbanks, can show that this new ground-based "Star Wars" technology is sound, they both win. The military has a relatively-inexpensive defense shield and the University can brag about the most dramatic geophysical manipulation since atmospheric explosions of nuclear bombs. After successful testing, they would have the military megaprojects of the future and huge markets for Alaska's North Slope natural gas.

Looking at the other patents which built on the work of a Texas' physicist named Bernard Eastlund, it becomes clearer how the military intends to use the HAARP transmitter. It also makes governmental denials less believable. The military knows how it intends to use this technology, and has made it clear in their documents. The military has deliberately misled the public, through sophisticated word games, deceit and outright disinformation.

The military says the HAARP system could:

* Give the military a tool to replace the electromagnetic pulse effect of atmospheric thermonuclear devices (still considered a viable option by the military through at least 1986)

CAN'T GO UNDERWATER, HUH? YES IT CAN. * Replace the huge Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) submarine communication system operating in Michigan and Wisconsin with a new and more compact technology [THUS SHOWING THE TROLL IS ONLY BEING FUNNY WHEN HE CLAIMS, WITHOUT ANY EVIDENCE, THAT "HAARP" CAN'T GO UNDERWATER because of the red herring of "high frequency" when it can do low frequency, etc.]

the list continues...as I am sure the disinfo will continue, so prepare yourself and read on, and I encourage you to repost this thread elsewhere.

AND WHAT WOULD BE THE CONNECTION WITH OIL COMPANIES: THE OBSOLESCENCE OF OIL PIPELINES FOR A START:

"What would this technology be worth to ARCO, the owner of the patents? They could make enormous profits by beaming electrical power from a powerhouse in the gas fields to the consumer without wires...]

Begich found eleven other APTI Patents.

They told how to make "Nuclear-sized Explosions without Radiation," Power-beaming systems, over-the-horizon radar, detection systems for missiles carrying nuclear warheads, electromagnetic pulses previously produced by thermonuclear weapons and other Star-Wars tricks. This cluster of patents underlay the HAARP weapon system.

Related research by Begich and Manning uncovered bizarre schemes. For example, Air Force documents revealed that a system had been developed for manipulating and disturbing human mental processes through pulsed radio-frequency radiation (the stuff of HAARP) over large geographical areas. The mental-disruption possibilities for HAARP are the most disturbing. More than 40 pages of the book, with dozens of footnotes, chronicle the work of Harvard professors, military planners and scientists as they plan and test this use of the electromagnetic technology. For example, one of the papers describing this use was from the International Red Cross in Geneva. It even gave the frequency ranges where these effects could occur -- the same ranges which HAARP is capable of broadcasting.

CAN'T GO UNDERGROUND, HUH? "The United States Congressional record deals with the use of HAARP for penetrating the earth with signals bounced off of the ionosphere. These signals are used to look inside the planet to a depth of many kilometers in order to locate underground munitions, minerals and tunnels. The U.S. Senate set aside $15 million dollars in 1996 to develop this ability alone -- earth-penetrating-tomography. The problem is that the frequency needed for earth-penetrating radiation is within the frequency range most cited for disruption of human mental functions. It may also have profound effects on migration patterns of fish and wild animals which rely on an undisturbed energy field to find their routes."


SO IN SHORT, GOING BACK TO THE TSUNAMI/EARTHQUAKE ISSUE: We have an underwater tomography technology capable of simultaneously generating something that can be so powerful that it makes electromagnetic pulses (underground or above ground) of a nuclear weapons obsolete.

Sort of what we have been saying all along by the way here for quite some time.

HAARP is multi-faceted eco-terrorism incarnate.

The Military's Pandora's Box
By Dr. Nick Begich and Jeane Manning [Earthpulse Press]

Hear Nick talk about this in depth on Art Bell*
(*If Media link goes to a blank page, just Reload browser)  http://www.haarp.net/

This article was prepared to provide a summary of the contents of a book written in 1995 which describes an entirely new class of weapons. The weapons and their effects are described in the following pages. The United States Navy and Air Force have joined with the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, to build a prototype for a ground based "Star Wars" weapon system located in the remote bush country of Alaska.

The individuals who are demanding answers about HAARP are scattered around the planet. As well as bush dwellers in Alaska, they include: a physician in Finland; a scientist in Holland; an anti-nuclear protester in Australia; independent physicists in the United States; a grandmother in Canada, and countless others.

Unlike the protests of the 1960s the objections to HAARP have been registered using the tools of the 1990s. From the Internet, fax machines, syndicated talk radio and a number of alternative print mediums the word is getting out and people are waking up to this new intrusion by an over zealous United States government.

The research team put together to gather the materials which eventually found their way into the book never held a formal meeting, never formed a formal organization. Each person acted like a node on a planetary info-spirit-net with one goal held by all -- to keep this controversial new science in the public eye. The result of the team's effort was a book which describes the science and the political ramifications of this technology.

That book, Angels Don't Play this HAARP: Advances in Tesla Technology, has 230 pages. This article will only give the highlights. Despite the amount of research (350 footnoted sources), at its heart it is a story about ordinary people who took on an extraordinary challenge in bringing their research forward.

Go directly to Catalog and Order Form


HAARP Boils the Upper Atmosphere

HAARP will zap the upper atmosphere with a focused and steerable electromagnetic beam. It is an advanced model of an "ionospheric heater." (The ionosphere is the electrically-charged sphere surrounding Earth's upper atmosphere. It ranges between 40 to 60 miles above the surface of the Earth.)

Put simply, the apparatus for HAARP is a reversal of a radio telescope; antenna send out signals instead of receiving. HAARP is the test run for a super-powerful radiowave-beaming technology that lifts areas of the ionosphere by focusing a beam and heating those areas. Electromagnetic waves then bounce back onto earth and penetrate everything -- living and dead.

HAARP publicity gives the impression that the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program is mainly an academic project with the goal of changing the ionosphere to improve communications for our own good. However, other U.S. military documents put it more clearly -- HAARP aims to learn how to "exploit the ionosphere for Department of Defense purposes." Communicating with submarines is only one of those purposes.

Press releases and other information from the military on HAARP continually downplay what it could do. Publicity documents insist that the HAARP project is no different than other ionospheric heaters operating safely throughout the world in places such as Arecibo, Puerto Rico, Tromso, Norway, and the former Soviet Union. However, a 1990 government document indicates that the radio-frequency (RF) power zap will drive the ionosphere to unnatural activities.

" ... at the highest HF powers available in the West, the instabilities commonly studied are approaching their maximum RF energy dissipative capability, beyond which the plasma processes will 'runaway' until the next limiting factor is reached."

If the military, in cooperation with the University of Alaska Fairbanks, can show that this new ground-based "Star Wars" technology is sound, they both win. The military has a relatively-inexpensive defense shield and the University can brag about the most dramatic geophysical manipulation since atmospheric explosions of nuclear bombs. After successful testing, they would have the military megaprojects of the future and huge markets for Alaska's North Slope natural gas.

Looking at the other patents which built on the work of a Texas' physicist named Bernard Eastlund, it becomes clearer how the military intends to use the HAARP transmitter. It also makes governmental denials less believable. The military knows how it intends to use this technology, and has made it clear in their documents. The military has deliberately misled the public, through sophisticated word games, deceit and outright disinformation.

The military says the HAARP system could:

*
Give the military a tool to replace the electromagnetic pulse effect of atmospheric thermonuclear devices (still considered a viable option by the military through at least 1986)

*
Replace the huge Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) submarine communication system operating in Michigan and Wisconsin with a new and more compact technology

*
Be used to replace the over-the-horizon radar system that was once planned for the current location of HAARP, with a more flexible and accurate system

*
Provide a way to wipe out communications over an extremely large area, while keeping the military's own communications systems working

*
Provide a wide area earth-penetrating tomography which, if combined with the computing abilities of EMASS and Cray computers, would make it possible to verify many parts of nuclear nonproliferation and peace agreements

*
Be a tool for geophysical probing to find oil, gas and mineral deposits over a large area [INTERESTING IN LIGHT OF THE CLAIMED 'PROBING FOR OIL' OF TASMANIA CONNECTED LIKELY WITH THE SUMATRAN EARTHQUAKE/TSUNAMI. IT VERY LIKELY COULD BE HAARP PROBING FOR OIL OFF TASMANIA ORIGINALLY.]

*
Be used to detect incoming low-level planes and cruise missiles, making other technologies obsolete

The above abilities seem like a good idea to all who believe in sound national defense, and to those concerned about cost-cutting. However, the possible uses which the HAARP records do not explain, and which can only be found in Air Force, Army, Navy and other federal agency records, are alarming.

Moreover, effects from the reckless use of these power levels in our natural shield -- the ionosphere -- could be cataclysmic according to some scientists.

Two Alaskans put it bluntly. A founder of the NO HAARP movement, Clare Zickuhr, says "The military is going to give the ionosphere a big kick and see what happens."

The military failed to tell the public that they do not know what exactly will happen, but a Penn State science article brags about that uncertainty. Macho science? The HAARP project uses the largest energy levels yet played with by what Begich and Manning call "the big boys with their new toys." HAARP is an experiment in the sky, and experiments are done to find out something not already known. Independent scientists told Begich and Manning that a HAARP-type "skybuster" with its unforeseen effects could be an act of global vandalism.


HAARP History

The patents described below were the package of ideas which were originally controlled by ARCO Power Technologies Incorporated (APTI), a subsidiary of Atlantic Richfield Company, one of the biggest oil companies in the world. APTI was the contractor that built the HAARP facility. ARCO sold this subsidiary, the patents and the second phase construction contract to E-Systems in June 1994.

E-Systems is one of the biggest intelligence contractors in the world -- doing work for the CIA, defense intelligence organizations and others. $1.8 billion of their annual sales are to these organizations, with $800 million for black projects -- projects so secret that even the United States Congress isn't told how the money is being spent.

E-Systems was bought out by Raytheon [WHICH RAYTHEON IS OWNED BY BLACKSTONE, WHICH BOUGHT UP THE WTC7 BEFORE 9-11; BLACKSTONE IS ONE OF THE WORLD'S LARGEST PRIVATE INVESTMENT OUTFITS, AND IT WAS FOUNDED IN THE 1980S BY PETER PETERSON, WHO IS PART OF THE U.S. FEDERAL RESERVE, CFR, ETC.], which is one of the largest defense contractors in the world. In 1994 Raytheon was listed as number forty-two on the Fortune 500 list of companies.

Raytheon has thousands of patents, some of which will be valuable in the HAARP project.

The twelve patents below are the backbone of the HAARP project, and are now buried among the thousands of others held in the name of Raytheon. Bernard J. Eastlund's U.S. Patent # 4,686,605, "Method and Apparatus for Altering a Region in the Earth's Atmosphere, Ionosphere; and/or Magnetosphere," was sealed for a year under a government Secrecy Order.

The Eastlund ionospheric heater was different; the radio frequency (RF) radiation was concentrated and focused to a point in the ionosphere. This difference throws an unprecedented amount of energy into the ionosphere. The Eastlund device would allow a concentration of one watt per cubic centimeter, compared to others only able to deliver about one millionth of one watt.

This huge difference could lift and change the ionosphere in the ways necessary to create futuristic effects described in the patent. According to the patent, the work of Nikola Tesla in the early 1900's formed the basis of the research.

What would this technology be worth to ARCO, the owner of the patents? They could make enormous profits by beaming electrical power from a powerhouse in the gas fields to the consumer without wires.

For a time, HAARP researchers could not prove that this was one of the intended uses for HAARP. In April, 1995, however, Begich found other patents, connected with a "key personnel" list for APTI. Some of these new APTI patents were indeed a wireless system for sending electrical power. Eastlund's patent said the technology can confuse or completely disrupt airplanes' and missiles' sophisticated guidance systems. Further, this ability to spray large areas of Earth with electromagnetic waves of varying frequencies, and to control changes in those waves, makes it possible to knock out communications on land or sea as well as in the air.

The patent said:

"Thus, this invention provides the ability to put unprecedented amounts of power in the Earth's atmosphere at strategic locations and to maintain the power injection level particularly if random pulsing is employed, in a manner far more precise and better controlled than heretofore accomplished by the prior art, particularly by detonation of nuclear devices of various yields at various altitudes... "

"...it is possible not only to interfere with third party communications but to take advantage of one or more such beams to carry out a communications network even though the rest of the world's communications are disrupted. Put another way, what is used to disrupt another's communications can be employed by one knowledgeable of this invention as a communication network at the same time."

"... large regions of the atmosphere could be lifted to an unexpectedly high altitude so that missiles encounter unexpected and unplanned drag forces with resultant destruction."

"Weather modification is possible by, for example, altering upper atmosphere wind patterns by constructing one or more plumes of atmospheric particles which will act as a lens or focusing device.

... molecular modifications of the atmosphere can take place so that positive environmental effects can be achieved. Besides actually changing the molecular composition of an atmospheric region, a particular molecule or molecules can be chosen for increased presence. For example, ozone, nitrogen, etc., concentrations in the atmosphere could be artificially increased."

Begich found eleven other APTI Patents.

They told how to make "Nuclear-sized Explosions without Radiation," Power-beaming systems, over-the-horizon radar, detection systems for missiles carrying nuclear warheads, electromagnetic pulses previously produced by thermonuclear weapons and other Star-Wars tricks. This cluster of patents underlay the HAARP weapon system.

Related research by Begich and Manning uncovered bizarre schemes. For example, Air Force documents revealed that a system had been developed for manipulating and disturbing human mental processes through pulsed radio-frequency radiation (the stuff of HAARP) over large geographical areas. The most telling material about this technology came from writings of Zbigniew Brzezinski (former National Security Advisory to U.S. President Carter) and J.F. MacDonald (science advisor to U.S. President Johnson and a professor of Geophysics at UCLA), as they wrote about use of power-beaming transmitters for geophysical and environmental warfare. The documents showed how these effects might be caused, and the negative effects on human heath and thinking.

The mental-disruption possibilities for HAARP are the most disturbing. More than 40 pages of the book, with dozens of footnotes, chronicle the work of Harvard professors, military planners and scientists as they plan and test this use of the electromagnetic technology. For example, one of the papers describing this use was from the International Red Cross in Geneva. It even gave the frequency ranges where these effects could occur -- the same ranges which HAARP is capable of broadcasting.

The following statement was made more than twenty-five years ago in a book by Brzezinski which he wrote while a professor at Columbia University:

"Political strategists are tempted to exploit research on the brain and human behavior. Geophysicist Gordon J.F. MacDonald, a specialist in problems of warfare, says accurately-timed, artificially-excited electronic strokes could lead to a pattern of oscillations that produce relatively high power levels over certain regions of the earth ... in this way one could develop a system that would seriously impair the brain performance of very large populations in selected regions over an extended period"

" ... no matter how deeply disturbing the thought of using the environment to manipulate behavior for national advantages, to some, the technology permitting such use will very probably develop within the next few decades."

In 1966, MacDonald was a member of the President's Science Advisory Committee and later a member of the President's Council on Environmental Quality. He published papers on the use of environmental control technologies for military purposes. The most profound comment he made as a geophysicist was, "the key to geophysical warfare is the identification of environmental instabilities to which the addition of a small amount of energy would release vastly greater amounts of energy." While yesterday's geophysicists predicted today's advances, are HAARP program managers delivering on the vision?

The geophysicists recognized that adding energy to the environmental soup could have large effects. However, humankind has already added substantial amounts of electromagnetic energy into our environment without understanding what might constitute critical mass. The book by Begich and Manning raises questions:

* Have these additions been without effect, or is there a cumulative amount beyond which irreparable damage can be done?

* Is HAARP another step in a journey from which we cannot turn back?

* Are we about to embark on another energy experiment which unleashes another set of demons from Pandora's box?


As early as 1970, Zbigniew Brzezinski predicted a "more controlled and directed society" would gradually appear, linked to technology. This society would be dominated by an elite group which impresses voters by allegedly superior scientific know-how. Angels Don't Play This HAARP further quotes Brzezinski:

"Unhindered by the restraints of traditional liberal values, this elite would not hesitate to achieve its political ends by using the latest modern techniques for influencing public behavior and keeping society under close surveillance and control. Technical and scientific momentum would then feed on the situation it exploits," Brzezinski predicted.

His forecasts proved accurate.

Today, a number of new tools for the "elite" are emerging, and the temptation to use them increases steadily. The policies to permit the tools to be used are already in place. How could the United States be changed, bit by bit, into the predicted highly-controlled technosociety? Among the "steppingstones" Brzezinski expected were persisting social crises and use of the mass media to gain the public's confidence.

In another document prepared by the government, the U.S. Air Force claims: "The potential applications of artificial electromagnetic fields are wide-ranging and can be used in many military or quasi-military situations... Some of these potential uses include dealing with terrorist groups, crowd control, controlling breaches of security at military installations, and antipersonnel techniques in tactical warfare. In all of these cases the EM (electromagnetic) systems would be used to produce mild to severe physiological disruption or perceptual distortion or disorientation. In addition, the ability of individuals to function could be degraded to such a point that they would be combat ineffective. Another advantage of electromagnetic systems is that they can provide coverage over large areas with a single system. They are silent and countermeasures to them may be difficult to develop... One last area where electromagnetic radiation may prove of some value is in enhancing abilities of individuals for anomalous phenomena."

Do these comments point to uses already somewhat developed? The author of the government report refers to an earlier Air Force document about the uses of radio frequency radiation in combat situations. (Here Begich and Manning note that HAARP is the most versatile and the largest radio-frequency-radiation transmitter in the world.)

The United States Congressional record deals with the use of HAARP for penetrating the earth with signals bounced off of the ionosphere. These signals are used to look inside the planet to a depth of many kilometers in order to locate underground munitions, minerals and tunnels. The U.S. Senate set aside $15 million dollars in 1996 to develop this ability alone -- earth-penetrating-tomography. The problem is that the frequency needed for earth-penetrating radiation is within the frequency range most cited for disruption of human mental functions. It may also have profound effects on migration patterns of fish and wild animals which rely on an undisturbed energy field to find their routes.

As if electromagnetic pulses in the sky and mental disruption were not enough, T. Eastlund bragged that the super-powerful ionospheric heater could control weather.

Begich and Manning brought to light government documents indicating that the military has weather-control technology. When HAARP is eventually built to its full power level, it could create weather effects over entire hemispheres. If one government experiments with the world's weather patterns, what is done in one place will impact everyone else on the planet. Angels Don't Play This HAARP explains a principle behind some of Nikola Tesla's inventions -- resonance -- which affect planetary systems.


Bubble of Electric Particles

Angels Don't Play This HAARP includes interviews with independent scientists such as Elizabeth Rauscher. She has a Ph.D., a long and impressive career in high-energy physics, and has been published in prestigious science journals and books. Rauscher commented on HAARP. "You're pumping tremendous energy into an extremely delicate molecular configuration that comprises these multi-layers we call the ionosphere."

"The ionosphere is prone to catalytic reactions," she explained, "if a small part is changed, a major change in the ionosphere can happen."

In describing the ionosphere as a delicately balanced system, Dr. Rauscher shared her mental picture of it -- a soap-bubble-like sphere surrounding Earth's atmosphere, with movements swirling over the surface of the bubble. If a big enough hole is punched through it, she predicts, it could pop.


Slicing the Ionosphere

Physicist Daniel Winter, Ph.D., of Waynesville, North Carolina, says, "HAARP high-frequency emissions can couple with longwave (extremely-low-frequency, or ELF) pulses the Earth grid uses to distribute information as vibrations to synchronize dances of life in the biosphere." Dan terms this geomagnetic action 'Earth's information bloodstream,' and says it is likely that coupling of HAARP HF (high-frequency) with natural ELF can cause unplanned, unsuspected side effects.

David Yarrow of Albany, New York, is a researcher with a background in electronics. He described possible interactions of HAARP radiation with the ionosphere and Earth's magnetic grid:
"HAARP will not burn holes in the ionosphere. That is a dangerous understatement of what HAARP's giant gigawatt beam will do. Earth is spinning relative to thin electric shells of the multilayer membrane of ionospheres that absorb and shield Earth's surface from intense solar radiation, including charged particle storms in solar winds erupting from the sun. Earth's axial spin means that HAARP -- in a burst lasting more than a few minutes -- will slice through the ionosphere like a microwave knife. This produces not a hole but a long tear -- an incision."


Crudely Plucking the Strings

Second concept: As Earth rotates, HAARP will slice across the geomagnetic flux, a donut-shaped spool of magnetic strings -- like longitude meridians on maps.

HAARP may not 'cut' these strings in Gaia's magnetic mantle, but will pulse each thread with harsh, out-of-harmony high frequencies. These noisy impulses will vibrate geomagnetic flux lines, sending vibrations all through the geomagnetic web."

"The image comes to mind of a spider on its web. An insect lands, and the web's vibrations alert the spider to possible prey. HAARP will be a man-made microwave finger poking at the web, sending out confusing signals, if not tearing holes in the threads."

"Effects of this interference with symphonies of Gaia's geomagnetic harp are unknown, and I suspect barely thought of. Even if thought of, the intent (of HAARP) is to learn to exploit any effects, not to play in tune to global symphonies. "

Among other researchers quoted is Paul Schaefer of Kansas City. His degree is in electrical engineering and he spent four years building nuclear weapons. "But most of the theories that we have been taught by scientists to believe in seem to be falling apart," he says. He talks about imbalances already caused by the industrial and atomic age, especially by radiation of large numbers of tiny, high-velocity particles "like very small spinning tops" into our environment. The unnatural level of motion of highly-energetic particles in the atmosphere and in radiation belts surrounding Earth is the villain in the weather disruptions, according to this model, which describes an Earth discharging its buildup of heat, relieving stress and regaining a balanced condition through earthquakes and volcanic action.


Feverish Earth

"One might compare the abnormal energetic state of the Earth and its atmosphere to a car battery which has become overcharged with the normal flow of energy jammed up, resulting in hot spots, electrical arcing, physical cracks and general turbulence as the pent-up energy tries to find some place to go."

In a second analogy, Schaefer says "Unless we desire the death of our planet, we must end the production of unstable particles which are generating the earth's fever. A first priority to prevent this disaster would be to shut down all nuclear power plants and end the testing of atomic weapons, electronic warfare and 'Star Wars'." Meanwhile, the military builds its biggest ionospheric heater yet, to deliberately create more instabilities in a huge plasma layer -- the ionosphere -- and to rev up the energy level of charged particles.


Electronic Rain From The Sky

They have published papers about electron precipitation from the magnetosphere (the outer belts of charged particles which stream toward Earth's magnetic poles) caused by man-made very low frequency electromagnetic waves. "These precipitated particles can produce secondary ionization, emit X-rays, and cause significant perturbation in the lower ionosphere."

Two Stanford University radio scientists offer evidence of what technology can do to affect the sky by making waves on earth; they showed that very low frequency radio waves can vibrate the magnetosphere and cause high-energy particles to cascade into Earth's atmosphere. By turning the signal on or off, they could stop the flow of energetic particles.


Weather Control

Avalanches of energy dislodged by such radio waves could hit us hard. Their work suggests that technicians could control global weather by sending relatively small 'signals' into the Van Allen belts (radiation belts around Earth). Thus Tesla's resonance effects can control enormous energies by tiny triggering signals.

The Begich/ Manning book asks whether that knowledge will be used by war-oriented or biosphere-oriented scientists.

The military has had about twenty years to work on weather warfare methods, which it euphemistically calls weather modification. For example, rainmaking technology was taken for a few test rides in Vietnam. The U.S. Department of Defense sampled lightning and hurricane manipulation studies in Project Skyfire and Project Stormfury. And they looked at some complicated technologies that would give big effects. Angels Don't Play This HAARP cites an expert who says the military studied both lasers and chemicals which they figured could damage the ozone layer over an enemy. Looking at ways to cause earthquakes, as well as to detect them, was part of the project named Prime Argus, decades ago. The money for that came from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA, now under the acronym ARPA.) In 1994 the Air Force revealed its Spacecast 2020 master plan which includes weather control. Scientists have experimented with weather control since the 1940's, but Spacecast 2020 noted that "using environmental modification techniques to destroy, damage or injure another state are prohibited." Having said that, the Air Force claimed that advances in technology "compels a reexamination of this sensitive and potentially risky topic."


40 Years of Zapping the Sky?

As far back as 1958, the chief White House advisor on weather modification, Captain Howard T. Orville, said the U.S. defense department was studying "ways to manipulate the charges of the earth and sky and so affect the weather" by using an electronic beam to ionize or de-ionize the atmosphere over a given area.

In 1966, Professor Gordon J. F. MacDonald was associate director of the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics at the University of California, Los Angeles, was a member of the President's Science Advisory Committee, and later a member of the President's Council on Environmental Quality.

He published papers on the use of environmental-control technologies for military purposes.

MacDonald made a revealing comment: "The key to geophysical warfare is the identification of environmental instabilities to which the addition of a small amount of energy would release vastly greater amounts of energy." [like plate techtonics for example (earthquakes).] World-recognized scientist MacDonald had a number of ideas for using the environment as a weapon system and he contributed to what was, at the time, the dream of a futurist. When he wrote his chapter, "How To Wreck The Environment," for the book Unless Peace Comes, he was not kidding around. In it he describes the use of weather manipulation, climate modification, [intentionally created] polar ice cap melting or destabilization, ozone depletion techniques, earthquake engineering, ocean wave control and brain wave manipulation using the planet's energy fields.

He also said that these types of weapons would be developed and, when used, would be virtually undetectable by their victims. Is HAARP that weapon? The military's intention to do environmental engineering is well documented, U.S. Congress' subcommittee hearings on Oceans and International Environment looked into military weather and climate modification conducted in the early 1970's.

"What emerged was an awesome picture of far-ranging research and experimentation by the Department of Defense into ways environmental tampering could be used as a weapon," said another author cited in Angles Don't Play This HAARP.

The revealed secrets surprised legislators.

Would an inquiry into the state of the art of electromagnetic manipulation surprise lawmakers today? They may find out that technologies developed out of the HAARP experiments in Alaska could deliver on Gordon MacDonald's vision because leading-edge scientists are describing global weather as not only air pressure and thermal systems, but also as an electrical system.


Small Input - Big Effect

HAARP zaps the ionosphere where it is relatively unstable. A point to remember is that the ionosphere is an active electrical shield protecting the planet from the constant bombardment of high-energy particles from space. This conducting plasma, along with Earth's magnetic field, traps the electrical plasma of space and holds it back from going directly to the earth's surface, says Charles Yost of Dynamic Systems, Leicester, North Carolina. "If the ionosphere is greatly disturbed, the atmosphere below is subsequently disturbed."

Another scientist interviewed said there is a super-powerful electrical connection between the ionosphere and the part of the atmosphere where our weather comes onstage, the lower atmosphere.

One man-made electrical effect -- power line harmonic resonance -- causes fallout of charged particles from the Van Allen (radiation) belts, and the falling ions cause ice crystals (which precipitate rain clouds). What about HAARP? Energy blasted upward from an ionospheric heater is not much compared to the total in the ionosphere, but HAARP documents admit that thousandfold-greater amounts of energy can be released in the ionosphere than injected. As with MacDonald's "key to geophysical warfare," "nonlinear" effects (described in the literature about the ionospheric heater) mean small input and large output. Astrophysicist Adam Trombly told Manning that an acupuncture model is one way to look at the possible effect of multi-gigawatt pulsing of the ionosphere. If HAARP hits certain points, those parts of the ionosphere could react in surprising ways.

Smaller ionospheric heaters such as the one at Arecibo are underneath relatively placid regions of the ionosphere, compared to the dynamic movements nearer Earth's magnetic poles. That adds another uncertainty to HAARP -- the unpredictable and lively upper atmosphere near the North Pole.

HAARP experimenters do not impress commonsense Alaskans such as Barbara Zickuhr, who says "They're like boys playing with a sharp stick, finding a sleeping bear and poking it in the butt to see what's going to happen."


Could They Short-Circuit Earth?

Earth as a spherical electrical system is a fairly well-accepted model. However, those experimenters who want to make unnatural power connections between parts of this system might not be thinking of possible consequences. Electrical motors and generators can be caused to wobble when their circuits are affected. Could human activities cause a significant change in a planet's electrical circuit or electrical field? A paper in the respected journal Science deals with manmade ionization from radioactive material, but perhaps it could also be studied with HAARP-type skybusters in mind:

"For example, while changes in the earth's electric field resulting from a solar flare modulating conductivity may have only a barely detectable effect on meteorology, the situation may be different in regard to electric field changes caused by manmade ionization... " Meteorology, of course, is the study of the atmosphere and weather. ionization is what happens when a higher level of power is zapped into atoms and knocks electrons off the atoms. The resulting charged particles are the stuff of HAARP. "One look at the weather should tell us that we are on the wrong path," says Paul Schaefer, commenting on HAARP-type technologies.

Angels Don't Play This HAARP: Advances in Tesla Technology is about the military's plan to manipulate that which belongs to the world -- the ionosphere. The arrogance of the United States government in this is not without precedent.

Atmospheric nuclear tests had similar goals. More recently, China and France put their people's money to destructive use in underground nuclear tests. It was recently reported that the US government spent $3 trillion dollars on its nuclear program since its beginnings in the 1940's. What new breakthroughs in life science could have been made with all the money spent on death?

Begich, Manning, Roderick and others believe that democracies need to be founded on openness, rather than the secrecy which surrounds so much military science. Knowledge used in developing revolutionary weapons could be used for healing and helping mankind. Because they are used in new weapons, discoveries are classified and suppressed. When they do appear in the work of other independent scientists, the new ideas are often frustrated or ridiculed, while military research laboratories continue to build their new machines for the killing fields.

However, the book by Manning and Begich gives hope that the military industrial academic bureaucratic Goliath can be affected by the combined power of determined individuals and the alternative press.

Becoming informed is the first step to empowerment.

Harping on about H.A.A.R.P 02.Jan.2005 23:13

Paul

The thing about the electromagnetic spectrum is that an object that is opaque to one bandwidth will be transparent to another. Extremely long radio wave is used by some navies to routinely communicate to nuclear subs under 1000 feet ocean from the other side of the world. Certain spy satellites use ground penetrating radar that will scan into dirt 20 feet from 100+ miles up! US airports are quietly being equipped with devices that covertly "image" people as if their clothing was made of gauze in order to spot guns, bombs, etc.
I know that you can smash a kidney stone without having to physically touch it with anything more than focused sound waves.
Really, what is so far fetched about aiming several geographically separated arrays of powerful emitters so that their signals all converge on one spot? This spot becomes a "node". You adjust and calibrate the emitters so that their signals are "in phase" when they arrive this node of convergence. Bingo, something is going to happen.
You may cause a black out on the local electrical power grid. (do some googleing)
You may shake the shit out of a building, city, or region.
You may superheat some air or water to alter the local weather.
It is all a question of spectrum and power levels and a lack of fear.

yes, different 02.Jan.2005 23:51

wavelengths of rf

have different characteristics. and neither the am nor fm broadcast bands use hf (am uses lower frequencies, fm higher). consumer electronic devices don't use the hf spectrum. at least not here in the usa. shortwave broadcast receivers are common consumer electronic devices in europe and elsewhere. and for those who don't know, "shortwave" is the same thing as "hf" or "high frequency".

tell you what. i actually own several shortwave receivers. one of them is a portable that runs off batteries. if you want, i'll be willing to arrange a meeting at the washington park max station. you can observe the radio playing on the surface and watch it quickly go dead as the elevator drops. actually, it'll probably go dead as we enter the elevator, as hf can't even penetrate the metal walls well. or borrow or acquire a shortwave portable of your own if you don't trust mine. serious offer -- i'm willing to demonstrate the science behind my statements.

elf (extremely low frequencies) can penetrate ground and water to a much greater degree than other frequencies. but haarp uses hf, not elf. sorry.

and "haarp uses scalars" is incoherent nonsense. makes about as much sense as saying "umbrella uses calculus". see my other post about vectors and scalars.

troll changes tact, moves on! 03.Jan.2005 10:16

on scalar, another word to search for is "zero point" by the way. Different level of physics.

I note the troll quickly changed tact!! ;-) ha ha What happened to your previous "non-argument" dumbface, about "can't do underwater?" He lied in the next fake criteria just as he is lying here.

Wow, what a bunch of wackiness 03.Jan.2005 10:38

The Mind Boggles

Some people will believe anything! The laws of physics have been repealed!

Now, even if this was possible, which it ain't, why would someone do this, again? Haven't made sense of that...to steal oil fields? Haven't we shown we can steal oil fields the old fashioned-way? Let's see if any oil fields actually get stolen, and then, maybe, just maybe, there would be something to discuss, but we still would have to deal with that whole laws of physics issue....

Okay, maybe we could have done a better job putting together a warning system...but how exactly did that become the responsibility of the US governement? They're supposed to have the phone number of the local police stations on the coast of India on speed dial? It seems like maybe the Indonesian, Thai, Indian, etc governments could have done something more to prepare for this eventuality - but they didn't.

SAID IN APRIL 1997 BY THE U.S. SECRETARY OF DEFENSE, WILLIAM COHEN:

"Others [terrorists] are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves... So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations... It's real, and that's the reason why we have to intensify our [counterterrorism] efforts." --- Secretary of Defense William Cohen at an April 1997 counterterrorism conference sponsored by former Senator Sam Nunn. Quoted from DoD News Briefing, Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen, Q&A at the Conference on Terrorism, Weapons of Mass Destruction, and U.S. Strategy, University of Georgia, Athens, Apr. 28, 1997.

"In short,...the Secretary of Defense of the United States confirmed that there are indeed novel kinds of EM weapons, right now and have been for some time, which have been and are being used to (1) initiate earthquakes, (2) engineer the weather and climate, and (3) initiate the eruption of volcanoes. We wrote about those exact uses of the weaponry decades ago. Several nations now have such weapons. Three of them (two on one side and the other on a hostile side) are even firing practice shots into Western Australia, as a convenient test range." [or undersea Indian ocean, just to see what their power can do].

obvious 03.Jan.2005 19:21

elitist clandestine inconclasts

The answer is pure and simple,

the world needs a one world government,

surplus neutron nukes (Sans fallout, significant radiation)could have been used,

the US must have military technology 50 years ahead of civilian technology,

people have to be saved from themselves(have you heard of human nature? It is downright unpredictable and nasty,

create a problem then rush in to fix it,such is the way of our parental overseers,
some call them Big Brother but maybe they have a much more superior intelligence than the rest of us give them credit for,

people take everything for granted and laugh at you if you even suggest that you can wire up your car to an auxhiliary car battery that has been converted into a
gas emitter,and run your car on water,

the sheer egotistical stupidity of most people in our immediate environment defies description.

People have to be tied to the yoke of imperialism and its well oiled whip.

I want a fascist corporate world government, and I also want everybody to be microchipped, that way we can have an almost immediate knowledge of anyone wanting to commit a terrorist act on this beautiful planet. If you have nothing to hide you won't really mind will you?

There is no other way.
Nothing else works with the idiotic people that comprise 99.9 % of this planets population.
People only learn the hard way.

How is this for all you free thinkers out there: maybe this world is owned by something
and it is not the Rothschilds or the Rockefellers.
They merely oversee the stupid and duped masses with the totally uncrushable world governing body. It is called the banking system, and all of the governments of the world are its puppets.

Just as an interest, why is it that the world bank or the international monetary fund is not made responsible for aiding these disaster ridden areas with their money? Why do we have to be made responsible when most of us do not have any money to spare? Why do we, the six or so billion mutants on this planet allow ourselves to be duped into digging into our empty pockets, when the world bank has funds available amounting to trillions and trillions of dollars?

Those who do not question deserve to die.

Such is our overseers policy on what they perceive to be their children, the human race.

If you give your mind away and blindly follow some manufactured religion, without any proof or evidence of some imagined god, then you too deserve to be done with whatever is their wish.

Religions are created for the stupid people on this planet to see which pockets of humanity bite into such religions the hardest.
Funding and arms are then provided to these regions so that these weakminded pockets of humanity (imbecility),kill themselves off.

This has the effect of increasing the level of intelligence of the human gene pool.

The problem is it is not happening fast enough and now the whole world is facing the prospect of an all out nuke war because certain pockets of humanity adhere to stupid rigours of seventh century religious rhetoric and refuse to modernize.

How funny that a region of the world that comprises mostly of these pockets of humanity is all of a sudden, without any warning, struck with a disastrous calamity?

Did not certain countries in this region namely India, Pakistan and Korea threaten the world with nuclear war a little while back?

Hmm?

(PS. No one is suggesting that anyone re-reading this document is stupid.)

Were the Tsunami's man made? 04.Jan.2005 11:46

Spartacus A2003D

I think the Indonesian Tsunamis were as man made as the Bali-bombings; additionally, I find it quite interesting that both disasters claimed the same class of socio-political vacationers, which begs the question: "Is there a war heating up on the horizon, or has the war already begun?"

HAARP causing Tsunami? 04.Jan.2005 15:35

Arlene Johnson ajohnsonpresnsi@truedemocracy.net Ask to be added to my Web mail address book.

Sean, I believe you are right on. Ever since I heard about the tsunami, I felt that it was HAARP instigated. After all, HAARP is a Shadow government agency I think. I published the edition that exposed the Shadow government way back in September 2001, in fact the day before 9/11 occurred, so it is difficult to remember if HAARP was part of it, but I think it is. As a person who questions, you will appreciate my e-zine. It publishes top secret American history as well as top secret history of a couple of other nations. It is under the icon that says Magazine on my Web site which is at www.truedemocracy.net Peace to you too. We had a president who wanted it. His name was John F. Kennedy.

somber insight 05.Jan.2005 04:09

not one of you

I am (or should I say was until the last few days) a very right wing conservative who voted for GWB to be reelected.
Im not a some leftie crunchy liberal tinfoil chick whatsoever.
Im a highly educated, analyze everything to the nth degree type of person.
That being said, things appear suspect in the Earthquake of 12/26/04.
The regions hit, specifically Banda Aceh, Indonesia were a hotbed of extreme Islam. At one itme CNN even reported that Bin Laden might possibly be there.
In addition to posing a threat via terrorism, Aceh holds a very nice carrot stick of natural resources.

For those who think it's far fetched to imagine a precision forced earthquake, private U.S. military technology is lightyears ahead of what civilians are familiar with (in laymen's terms say 50 years ahead)

We are the greatest Superpower and intend to stay that way.
Don't you think we would do anything to keep the most important advancements to ourselves ?
The only way that you would possibly hear about our country attempting to use Exotic weaponery is if another country admitted using the same tech first.

Possible Reasons 05.Jan.2005 06:49

JD

It is interesting it happened within one day of the Houston concept. It could explain Bush's reluctance to make any statements early on. Even with a mere 5,000 dead that would normally have been a great photo op for a guy who's dealing with most of the planet thinking he pretty much hates everyone that's not American. He seemed to have been waiting for more news, news inwhich the rest of the planet wasn't expecting, 150,000 plus dead.

* It would give Bush an opportunity to create a situation where 1000s of US operatives could go into these countries that are rumored to hold and hide most of al qaeda terrorists.

* It would give Bush an opportunity to show how wonderful the US is and re-create the goodwill America and he had following September 11th.

* It would also create a big distraction from the failure of his Iraqi policy...especially at a time when Congress is going back into sesson and his inauguration is coming up.

The idea that it had to be a nuclear blast to create such a disaster might be a little too much. The proper explosives along known fault lines (especially at the bottom of the ocean) could easily occur without drawing any attention. Remember, the US is pretty much the sole observer for these natural events anyway. The head of the tsunami warning center in Hawaii did go on BBC and say that he had 6-4 hours warning of the tsunami, but ''I didn't know who to call.'' An absurd notion since the US Pacific Fleet is headquartered in Hawaii and he did have their phone number, as well as all means to contact every ship in the fleet and they certainly knew who to call in each country in the path of the tsunami. A 6-4 hour lead time would have saved 1000s of lives if not 10s of 1000s.

Hopefully some netsters will do research, especially on some geological observer data that's available online regarding the quake size , locations, etc. With as many dead, especially children, it's unlikely all of those involved (if this is true) to keep quiet. There are still those with a conscience I would hope.

Then again, it's never been fully explained how the World Trade Center buildings collapsed. Especially the second building where photos show distinctively most of the jet fuel (kerosine) being blown out of the building and didn't burn inside. And of course we have the change in physics that day, kerosene decided to burn at 1600 degrees F instead of the usual 800 degrees and steel decided to not conduct heat that one day in history.

Possibility of scalar weapon attack 05.Jan.2005 16:28

I believe that the earthquake causing the tsunamis could have been a scalar weapon attack. Longitudinal wave interferometers, or "Tesla Howitzers" are 2 antennae connected by a computer which sends scalar beams which cross in an interference zone, and the beams can penetrate ocean depths to the undersea fault, creating a man-made earthquake. The Russians and their surrogates have the most advanced scalar weaponry. Neither Russia, China, North Korea, nor Vietnam were hit by tsunamis, were protected by Sumatra and Malay Peninsula. The tsunamis forced massive U.S. military assets from an already overdeployed military to South Asia, away from the communist countries, and U.S. mainland, which is more vulnerable. Russian "tourists" (KGB) entered Maldives after tsunami due to their strategic value. Disaster is major expense for U.S., but not for Russia and its strategic partner China, who are planning joint military exercises soon. Have no evidence that Russia or surrogates caused earthquake, but they are definitely capitalizing on an improved strategic position as a result.

HAARP or LFAS 05.Jan.2005 19:17

OK - I too am concerned about the cause of the earthquake that shook the world. Perhaps I am stepping into the boundaries of paranoia but here are some interesting facts.

On the 29th November 2004:
LFAS (Low Frequency Active Sonar) testing caused the beaching of 100's of whales, dophins and sharks off Tasmania (Austalia) and New Zealand see:  http://news.scotsman.com/topics.cfm?tid=226&id=1369342004
Australian papers admitted that LFAS were the cause but from an unknown sub close to australia.
If you dont know about lfas yet, I suggest you do some reasearch...very interesting.

On 23rd December 2004:
An unusally large earthquake hits 1200km off hobart (tasmania/Austalia.) It was also felt in New Zealand. I was woken up by it in Hobart.
goto:  http://www.fulldisklosure.org/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=12057&highlight=tsunami
Its down the page a little titled Massive Quake hits off Tasmania.

On 25th December 2004:
The historical earthquake gives rise to Tsumamies destroying many human lives and infrstructure.


It was printed in Australian papers that the earthquake near us may have triggered the explosive potential of the "big" earthquake. Although not proven, it has been suggested by the Australian Bureau of seismology that "...it's possible".

If it did trigger the "big" earthquake, what does that mean? Probably nothing.
But what if the Australian earthquake was triggered by manmade causes - such as LFAS testing?
What would that mean?

OK, perhaps I am stretching, but i did some reseacrh and found the active sonar testing has been asscoiated to geophysical warefare instigating earthquakes.
 http://www.propagandamatrix.com/271203iranearthquake.html
in this particular article it is referring to HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) However, when I spoke to The Australian Bureau of Seismology they mentioned they research has been undergone to see if sonic testing of this kind can instigate earthquakes but the jury was still out.

So - we have no definitive anwsers but some interesting questions. Personally I hope it's not true, but you do have to ask questions, right?

Tsunami 05.Jan.2005 21:23

DeAnna McIntosh dmic44@webtv.net

Tonight when I got on the internet I wanted to see if I could find something on here that might let me know whether or not the Tsunami was caused by man or mother nature. I really suspected some kind of weather modification but then I thought I am not sure they could do it that way but I still feel they done it some how and it is man made. Then I saw your site and it stated the question I wanted to know. So now as I read your article I see that a nuclear blast could cause such a thing and I feel that it is what caused it. You know it is probably part of Global project 2000 which is to eliminate as many people as possibe with terrorist attacks and hurricanes and storms and plagues of all kinds. Right now they are working their butts off trying to find a killer plague that will take out millions of people world wide. But as they are searching for this thing they are doing very well at killing large numbers of people everwhere. I know this was another planned terrorist attack. this is the grand daddy of them all so far. They are getting better all the time.

I wish I had written this 06.Jan.2005 00:55

not one of you

The following is an email from a close friend.
He's articulated various facts regarding this earthquake/tsunami better than anyone else has so far:



guess what - i did a whole LOT of research on this last night. took me hours and hours. what i found out, is truly creepy.

its a lot to type all at once. i uncovered so much stuff just doing simple searches on the internet, its hard to say it all here... but some of the things i found out:

• most importantly - you just said too bad it didnt wipe out the terr@rists. Well guess what B***. The news is just breaking over the few days about what was by far the hardest hit area. Banda Aceh, on the northern tip of Indonesia. at least 100,000 of the total 150,000 deaths are JUST f rom there. The photos of it look like Hiroshima. Its been 80% wiped off the map, first by earthquake damage then by the wave and floods. the earthquake happened JUST OFF THE COAST from the city of Banda Aceh. It really couldnt have been closer it someone planned it that way. It is the only place that suffered damage from both the tsunami AND directly from the earthquake.

• Indonesia is the most populous Islamic country in the world. It is 90% Muslim or more. It also has the same population as the united states. There are groups there linked to Al Quaeda. Remember the Bali nightclub bombing? That was in Indonesia. the worst attack in terms of deaths after sept 11, at least up to that point, killed like 150-200 western tourists. the government has been slow to act against suspected terrorist groups in their country. It has always been muslim, its first vice prime ministers name was Mohammad Hatta (!). there have recently bbeen many pushes to have it become a true islamic state, under Sharia (strict Sunni muslim) law - like Saudi Arabia, and the Taliban. These have so far not been passed. But extremism is growing there and bee nlargely ignored. The leader of one of the indonesian groups, is under our custody and currently at Guantanamo. I bet hes talking.

• As if that wasnt alarming enough, Banda Aceh, and the Aceh province are by far the MOST extreme muslims in all of indonesia. So much so, that they HAVE passed shariah law on a local level, and have been fighting an insurgency civil war for independence from Indonesia to form an Islamic state, patterned after the TAliban. This is part of the reason the region is so cut off, because there is ongoing fighting there between the slightly more moderate Indonesian Muslims. Banda Aceh was one of the first footholds in southeast asia, maybe the very first, and literally m eans "the front door of Islam" or the "porch of Allah". It is considered one of the most holy muslim sites in the world, like in the top 8 or so (top 3 being mecca, medina and jerusalem). It has a great mosque, that h as been largely destroyed. The people there are the most fanatical and were largely responsible historical for spreadibng islam to the REST of indonesia, and to all of southeast asia where it contines to spread like wildfire. It is the ONLY part of Indonesia that has signficiant Wahhabists, the extreme branch of Sunni Moslem that Bin Laden is from, that arose in Saudi Arabia...

• Now heres where it gets scary. Banda Aceh is so extreme that it is ONE of the TWO places Bin Laden considered moving his base to, out of Afghanistan. He made two visits, before september 11, one to Yemen, the second to Banda Aceh. He met with the leader of the insurgency that wants independence from Indonesia and a Taliban-style islamic state (or they want all of indonesia to become that way). This is documented fact. His number two and number three (who we have in custody) also went there to scope the place out. The place loves Bin Laden... so much so that after sept 11, bin laden t shirts were the hottest selling item in the city. And they are still wearing them today, as they sit there dying. the ties between Bin Laden and Banda Aceh go WAY back... Back when the Soviets occupied Afghanistan, Bin Laden fought side by side with the Aceh leader, the one who leads the insurgent extremist group. They sent somethig like 5000 soliders to fight beside bin laden in afghanistan.. and that was in the 80s. The group there is obviously and clearly part of Al Quaeda!! And Banda Aceh is (WAS) the center of the growing extremist movement in ALL of indonesia, perhaps all of southeast asia. Hell, for all we know thats where Bin Laden IS... or *WAS* (!!!!!!!!!!)

• The Aceh people are also one of worlds worst perscecutors of Christians. There are the fewest Christians in Aceh than anywhere else in indonesia... less than 50, out of a population of 150 million. (!) They are killing them off. In fact, 4,000 people have died in the LAST THREE YEARS in fighting between the christians and muslims in Aceh. they have also instigated the persecution in the Maldives, islands just off the coast, where they are also trying to set up an islamic state and systematically killing all the christians in the process.

• One year ago, the world was on a terror warning. We were at orange alert for christmas and new years. nothing happened here, if you recall. But a terrorist bomb went off on new years eve at a concert - in Banda Aceh. Set by the extremists there, of course. So in return, someone wished them a Merry Christmas this year.

• That same holiday season, one year ago... there was another earthquake. It happened on christmas, in Iran. Killed an enormous amount of Iranians. Now heres the weirdt hing. It happened EXACTLY a year later, within ONE HOUR of this years earthquake. In BOTH quakes, it was locally December 26th - but for BOTH quakes, the ENTIRE WESTERN HEMISPHERE was still December 25th (happened around 8 pm or so our time on Christmas day). You heard me right, it was CHRISTMAS DAY the BIRTHDAY OF CHRIST. for US, but not them (as if they observed it anyway). thats just too weird. someone gave the muslims extremists a Merry Christmas, two years in a row. (the iran quake, by the way, was not too far from the Afghani border...where are troops are obviously...)

• Another strange coincidence... WE did not have a terror alert this year over christmas and new years, for the first time that i can remember since sept 11. none at all. but AUSTRALIA issued one... in INDONESIA... on DECEMBER 15th! Documented Fact.

• As you know, the US was criticized for our response to this at first. we offered a paltry 15 million dollars, and barely brought it up. Sure, because we KNEW where the most damage was done, and that those people all celebrated after Sept 11. Worse, they m ay have helped PLAN it. Now you know WHY Bush didnt look like he felt so bad for them.

• As you know, we maintain a joint military base with the British in the middle of the indian ocean, Diego Garcia... it is four feet above sea level at its HIGHEST POINT... The Tsunami rolled right past i t.... had to have, sri lanka is to the north and the parts of africa it hit are to the south... it was right in the middle of its path. yet, it had ZERO CASUALTIES reported, and ZERO damage. the official reason is that there was a coral reef or something that "protected" it... or something like that. But somehow its the ONLY island in the entire indian sea that reported no problems. the Maldives, the Moluccas, the Seychelles, they ALL got it and had casualties... as did the east coast of africa... like 2000 miles or more further away.

• another weird twist. One of the biggest corproate donaters of aid, is Exxon/Mobil. They have one of their BIGGEST operations (if not the biggest in all of east asia or southeast asia), a HUGE gas and oil field... in indonesia. But not just indonesia... RIGHT in BANDA ACEH. part of the thing that h as pissed off the insurgent extremists linked to Al Quadea is, that they have the resoruces and the indonesian government (and the world) milks them for it, yet their people are the poorest in all of Indonesia. And Exxon is currently being sued for maltreatment of the workers and inhumanitarian conditions at their Banda Aceh operation. Sound familiar? Like the w hole Iraq/Kuwait/Saudi Arabia thing???

• OK so youve got all this. EVen an atheist is gonna look at all this and say how could this all be a coincidence. Its all too creepy, it has to be supernatural. IT would appear that Our God is making a point, a clear one. And that their false god is powerless in response. Im sure all of bushes born again christian advisors are telling him that very thing. God is protecting the USA, because he loves our country. Thats what those freaks actually believe. Regardless, it is all too convenient and defintely seems bibilical and like one of the chastisements in revelation. But theres one other weird, possiblity...

• In shadowy places of the internet, where only nuts and conspiracy therorists go, people are talking about something that is really only a myth along the lines of elvis sightings and alien abductons...and other paranormal BS. They talk about a new kind of weapon that we have been secretly developing for years and years that we are now using for the first time.. Tectonic Weapons.. basically weapons that can alter the weather, the environment, even cause extreme things like tornados, hurricanes, earthquakes and tsunamis. somehow u sing electrokmagnetic waves. and no more power than would be required in a nuclear detonation. sounds like a bunch of horseshit. these pepole should be committed. But then i uncover a REAL source, not one of these BS paranormal sites... and i confirm it with four other documented sources.. In 1997, daniel cohen, clintons SECRETARY of DEFENSE... warned congress about terrrorists, and them obtaining powerful weapons to use against us in the future.. INCLUDING weapons that could alter our weather, and create EARTHQUAKES. HE SAID THAT. Also documneted fact. How would terrorists get them if they didnt already exist???? And how do we explain all the weird weather the earth has been having ... its like up ten times in the last 10 or 20 years. tests? OK this all sounds like a nutjob talking, but the secretary of defense thing is true. But just imagine this odd outside scenario... we are at war, with terrorism on al lfronts. We are already bogged down in Iraq... finished off afghanistan, plotting against iran and syria... but way overextended. How do we deal with a gathering threat in another part of the world? Extremists as bad as the taliban, with no government supressing them at all? cant send troops, cant nuke them, cant bomb them and not follow up, we know that doesnt work. why not wipe them out, in a way that no one would never blame us? Or better yet, one that keeps the liberals so preocuppied with the humanitarian aspect, that they never even considered it long enough to start complaining... hell, we were even smart enough to include clinton as part of the relief effort leadership! Now how about one more scenario. What if we got intel, that bin laden was THERE. Were very big on cutting off the head of the snake, in one big blow. Remember what we tried to do to Saddam, right before the iraq war broke out? We tried to kill him then, and avoid the whole war altogether. Didnt work then. Might have worked now though. Even if he wasnt there, the fact remains that the worlds biggest UNCONTAINED extremist islamic terrorist threat, has just been WIPED OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH. What about all the innocent women and children? Yes what about them.... remember Hiroshima? We had a choice.... kill women and children, and civilians, or get killed ourselves. Isnt that what the terror war is about? keeping them from getting WMDs and killing millons of our popoulation. Yes, even if it means killing their women and children first. We have no problem with that. if you are insane enough, you can just imagine Bush's Rightwing Christian advisors telling him... not only will we wipe out the capital of terrorism in the entire southeast asia, but well also be stopping the persecution of christians... were doing GODS WORK. And isnt it funny how, throughpout history, the worst atrpocities that have every been committed against human beings, were more often than not, in the name of God...

Ok, im off the deep end. just food for thought. Something to think about, from the people at Getty... er, in this case Exxon ;)

only a "man made act"could have cuased the tsunami 06.Jan.2005 19:16

hugo

I can not believe that the tsunami was an act of God. It is easy,much easy to beleive that it was caused by man nuclear testing. Everybody has the right to their own opinion,but think first:Why would God the creator of heavens and earth bring such a desvastation to our brothers and sisters and children? Nothing but love comes from God,because He is Love. May the responsables of this pay for their actions,and I am sure God will serve and pass Judgment on those. And I hope this will never happens again.I wish God will stop them. How man can have such a power to destroy and kill so many people?

world war I 06.Jan.2005 21:42

dmsgx2

ummmm ... call me mr. skeptical but aren't we just a bit paranoid ??
and ummm ... world war one was way before nukes were even invented yet , your thinking of world war 2 when they were actually researched and developed or were they really invented in world war one , and perhaps used as a ploy to blow a face on the moon before telescopes were widly sold to the public .. hmmm....LOL
People with Idle minds make me smile ..... keep up the crap HA ,

not that I agree but... 07.Jan.2005 01:13

mtb

The author related that "A nuclear bomb was never detonated on the shelf, however a huge explosion did generate a tsunami during World War I."

Got it, a huge explosion, not a nuclear bomb. There are many ways to cause explosions.

Next time read before writing, unless you enjoy looking like an idiot.

Your article was very interesting to read.

I would like to know more about the nuclear attack warning you were referring to? Is this something you were alerted to in all of USA? How were you alerted?

God had nothing to do with the tsunami - all credit to the USA 07.Jan.2005 21:05

I cannot believe some of the ignorant comments posted here - especially the one about 'OUR GOD PROTECTING THE USA AND THEIR GOD NOT'.

What a bunch of BS! Im British and neither Christian nor Muslim - but looks to me like ppl are abusing religious pretexts again.

I am ever more convinced that the US caused the earthquake & tsunami.

The evidence is there for all 2 c - maybe the western world just doesn't wanna c. Like they didn't wanna c at 1st, that what Hitler was doing was wrong.

America is being led by a maniac and I really dread to think what all this is building up to.

There's too much evil in the world today.

Give me a break... 10.Jan.2005 18:59

British...figured as much. Since Roman times the british have been claiming ownership of every corner of the world, creating wars and unrest with their pompous "class conciousness" and delusion of superiority. Raking up trouble and expecting someone else(Read USA) to clean it up. "Once a colony always a colony", eh Neville? You guys brag on your colonies 'til they go rogue. That's alright, you keep shootin' your mouth off limey and we'll keep saving your British asses.
Furthermore, no one can say with ANY degree of certainty what has caused this disaster.Tsunami's and Mega-Tsunami's have been occuring since the dawn of time laying waste to miles and even hundreds of miles of coastline. This sort of thing is a fact, it will happen, no matter WHO the President of the US is. We've tested our nuclear devices with impunity, we no longer have any reason to do so. Our power is supreme and everyone knows it. If you're looking for culprits, I say look no further than the region itself, Pakistan, India, North Korea and the Turkish Islamic crescent are all tring to develop and TEST nuclear devices, this is well documented, India has had a couple above ground tests. They have been chastised for doing so by the nuclear holding powers of NATO and the UN. Why wouldn't they take their own tests off shore, especially in an area where seismic activities are less than heavily monitored.
At any rate, get your facts straight, look it up yourself, the newspapers are full of crap. The closer the ownership of the paper is to New York or England the higher the crap value. For God's sake, stop hammering on George W. Bush just because you hate Christians, I love the fact that this great man prays, I would much rather trust a man who talks to God, what ever you percieve God to be, than an atheist or agnostic with a hopelessly crippled, morally bankrupt humanist values system. I'm thoroughly convinced if GWBush wasn't openly Christian but openly Gay, all you folks would line up right behind him and march straight into hell. The domain of Atheists, Agnostics and Homosexuals.

Living in tents 12.Jan.2005 16:46

Susan Smith Monongalia River Queen aka Rowan31@Hotmail.com Rowan31@Hotmail.com

I live in a tent on the Monongalia River here in West Virginia. I feel deeply for those stifled and living inside dwellings that can't stand up to the rigors of the Earth's shannigans. It's not like we don't know that the Earth is unstable and unavoidably wicked to boot at times. Wait till the things hit the US and THEN tell me that living in a tent is silly ... bet the cost of tents flings itself into the abyss.

U.S. Nukes caused Dec.27 Tsunami/Earthquake 04.Mar.2005 02:10

Ex-Navy Nuke ed1hmpg@ispwest.com

The treasonous proprietors of our government that have siezed control of our country could not orchestrate an asian war fast enough, nor would the people of America tolerate another false conflict,so they blow up nukes under seaearth which has been a longstanding backup nuclear strategy from the fifties, nuetralizing political , diplomatic, and social discussions becuase after all its a disaster and we are there with our money, power, and military only to "help" all those poor people. When in reality this is business as usual, a continuim of Nazi-ism from WWII, a shell game that is nothing less than an insurgancy into the governments, and economies of Asia, which these neo-Nazis have desired since the end of the fake cold war days with Russia. A slick underhanded attack to takeover and gain influence and ultimate control over the economies of asia under the guise of a natural disaster. Wake up my fellow Americans
uphold the U.S. Constitution, and let us begin to hold our public servants up to the light and accountable, or we are rebound for slavery.

Nuclear Testing? No! Nuclear Projects 29.Mar.2005 03:17

The earthquakes are made on purpous, whether done with Nukes or with HAARP (Tesla Technology). Tesla warned of the use of his device before they murdered him, he said, 'don't use this, you'll shake the whole world apart'.
