"There are some reports, for example, that some countries have been trying to construct something like an Ebola Virus, and that would be a very dangerous phenomenon, to say the least. Alvin Toeffler has written about this in terms of some scientists in their laboratories trying to devise certain types of pathogens that would be ethnic specific so that they could just eliminate certain ethnic groups and races; and others are designing some sort of engineering, some sort of insects that can destroy specific crops. Others 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 efforts, and that's why this is so important."

"[W]eather-modification offers the war fighter a wide-range of possible options to defeat or coerce an adversary... In the United States, weather-modification will likely become a part of national security policy with both domestic and international applications. Our government will pursue such a policy, depending on its interests, at various levels."

"Technology will make available, to the leaders of major nations, techniques for conducting secret warfare, of which only a bare minimum of the security forces need be appraised... [T]echniques of weather modification could be employed to produce prolonged periods of drought or storm."

"All distant-destruction can be done from a control room, and to any point on earth. The destructive power of 'men' has just increased by orders of magnitude. While the United States has experimented with electomagnetic weapons using ordinary transverse EM waves, the longitudinal [LW] weaponized waves are truly of another order altogether. For one thing they do not have to travel through space, for they come from the time domain, which is everywhere. The energy of the blast, the heat or light or whatever, comes from the vacuum of space at the location of the target itself. This is astonishing. The weapons actually just trigger the release of immense energy from the vacuum at the target location. Here's how you initiate a very large earthquake with such weapons. Take a convenient fault zone or set of them. Focus the interferometry on the fault zone, in the "diverging" mode, and deposit EM energy there in the rocks on both sides, increasing (slowly) the stress in the rocks by the
 reverse piezoelectric effect (deposit excess energy, get crystal mechanical movements). Do it slowly, and the stress will build up to large pressures well-above a plate slip minimum energy required. At some point, the rocks yield and one or both sides "slip" and move rather sharply, giving a very large earthquake in that zone. Do the same thing down in the earth (remember, LWs easily penetrate right through the earth and ocean at will, and so the 'interference zone' focus can be inside the earth or beneath the ocean, at will)."

"We need a treaty now...before the military leaders of the world start directing storms, manipulating climates and inducing earthquakes against their enemies."

Asian Tsunami Special Report - Jan 1st, 2005

Editor's Note:

First, no matter whether this tsunami was a mass-unifying psychological operation or a purely natural disaster, we should think compassionately about the grief-stricken victims first and foremost with the intention of relieving the suffering in that region. In a way, we are all being sucked into the "global unity" scenario, but still we should behave in the same way as anyone would during or after any other disaster, just as New York responded heroically to 9/11, though few had the slightest idea that the government had been behind it.

Secondly, we have no real proof that this was a man-made psyops catastrophe. We just know that the technology indeed exists ("its real" said Cohen) enabling governments to manufacture such earthquakes and tsunamis AT A DISTANCE according to scientists and others who have worked in the most powerful military-industrial complexes of the world. Indeed, the truth is, the technology has been around since the early part of the 20th century and these "fantastic" weapons were publically announced by the USSR in the 1960s. That was forty years ago! Therefore, we are justified in asking whether or not human beings may have been involved in setting off the tsunami. To say that an artificial tsumami cannot be created for a predetermined effect is just a muddle-headed denial of the facts. For proof, I let the quotes above speak for themselves. Anyone who wants to foolishly deny this very real possibilitity can go argue with them about it.

Thirdly, we know that the criminal globalist masterminds have a motive for causing such horror. We know that the globalists employ psyops as pretexts for preconceived agendas. We know they want a totalitarian world government and have been accelerating their agenda by leaps and bounds since Operation 9/11 was pulled off. We know that they have a goal of reducing world population to "a managable level". We who have watched the globalists for years, know that they are evil, way beyond what most people are capable of imagining. Killing large masses of people comes very easily to them because the end justifies the means in their rotten stinking belief system, as well it serves their depopulation agenda. A brief look at 20th century history demonstrates that Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot and Henry Kissinger are just a few of those who have ordered the deaths of countless millions of innocent people and perhaps George Bush and Kim Jong Il want join their ranks. But in reality, these demonic creatures have been nothing but instruments in the hands of even more evil and powerful terrorist bosses working behind the scenes through their secret society financial networks. These are the ones who plan and fund major wars and most major terrorist operations which are then carried out by their various puppet minions.

And we can see how this tragic event benefits the globalist agenda geopolitically, at both the corporate and global government levels. This is really a fantastic boon for them. I refer to some of the articles below calling for the world to unite, more permanent global government powers, presences and institutions. And there are calls for massive reconstruction campaigns involving huge juicy contracts. We should watch for a lot of international jockeying to carve up and restructure the region geopolitically, militarily and economically. Soon we will also see massive open-ended no-bid contracts to rebuild the area and gigantic real-estate buyouts at pennies on the Euro. Martial Law is no doubt being implemented in many of these countries, though all of them are already under some form of dictatorship. Soon we will see more permanent globalist military bases being built in the region, especially in India and Indonesia. There is now a huge and widespread international mobilization of
military operations in the name of delivering relief. And this is just the beginning stage. And with all these international interests colliding in one region, will it set off an international incident? All these slippery machinations should be watched closely.

Lastly, we must investigate this event as thoroughly as we have investigated 9/11 or any other earthshaking event. The globalists will now have their own "investigation", again asking "why we failed" and will produce their own pre-determined plan for "preventing another disaster." Watch for any and all indications that prove advance knowledge of the event. Timelines need to be established. We may never be able to prove conclusively that the globalists manufactured this tsunami, but we can see how they are going to use it to further their agenda. And it would not change the facts and history of their criminal activities. The immensity of it demands our attention, but let us not allow it to distract from 9/11, Iraq, the global police-state, human rights abuses, econimic plunder, UN scandals or any of the other the gathering clouds of globalist machinations. Everything is related as their agenda moves forward full speed ahead.

Best wishes to all in the New Year and may the truth prevail,

Unprecedented Enormous Scale of Devastation

Catastrophe's reach is called unprecedented

The earthquake and tsunami that wracked the Indian Ocean basin Sunday created an unprecedented natural disaster, experts said yesterday. "I cannot recall a bigger geographical scope - so many countries or such a vast area that is affected," said Encho Gospodinov, head of the New York delegation of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. He is a 20-year veteran in providing international relief. Sunday, the tsunami traveled across the Indian Ocean in many directions: 3,000 miles to the coast of Somalia in Africa and about 1,000 miles to the mainland of India, killing tens of thousands so far in 12 countries.

"Even the strongest earthquakes don't produce sufficient ground shaking themselves to affect structures and things at that distance," said Robert Uhrhammer, a research seismologist at the University of California, Berkeley. "But the tidal wave, once it's generated by the earthquake, it can propagate outward across the ocean." Residents displaced by a tsunami sit in a relief camp in a temple in Varichikudi, India. U.N.: Tsunami damage 'unprecedented'
Emergency relief head calls on nations to step up aid
The United Nations' emergency relief head called the tsunamis that devastated large parts of southern Asia "unprecedented," and warned Monday that it may be weeks before the full effects are known. The tsunamis were "not the biggest in recorded history, but the effects may be the biggest ever because many more people live in exposed areas than ever before," said Jan Egeland, undersecretary-general for humanitarian affairs and emergency relief. With tens of thousands dead, many missing and millions displaced, still more serious problems lie ahead, Egeland said, including widespread illnesses. And it could take years to rebuild places that were wiped out, he said. Monday afternoon, he said relief efforts were already under way. Indonesian Death Toll May Excede 400,000
The death toll in Acheh, the region worst hit by last Sunday's tsunami, may exceed 400,000 as many affected areas could still not be reached for search and rescue operations, Indonesia's Ambassador to Malaysia Drs H. Rusdihardjo said Thursday. He said the estimate was based on air surveillance by Indonesian authorities who found no signs of life in places like Meulaboh, Pulau Simeulue and Tapak Tuan while several islands off the west coast of Sumatera had "disappeared". He said the latest death toll of more than 40,000 in Acheh and northern Sumatera did not take into account the figures from the other areas, especially in the west of the region.
"Aerial surveillance found the town of Meulaboh completely destroyed with only one buiding standing. The building, which belonged to the military, happens to be on a hill," he told reporters after receiving RM1 million in aid for Indonesia's Tsunami Disaster Relief Fund here Thursday.
Many children were swept away as they played on beaches Tsunami toll high among children
Many children were swept away as they played on beaches
Children may account for more than one third of those killed in the Asian tsunamis and many more are at risk from disease, aid agencies have warned. Some were too weak to cling on to their families, homes or trees as huge waves struck countries including Sri Lanka, Thailand, India and Indonesia. Others could not run fast enough to outpace the rushing water which flooded villages and beaches where they played. For the survivors, many now orphaned, disease poses the biggest threat. Witnesses described seeing children pulled under water by the waves, said Carol Bellamy, executive director of the UN children's agency Unicef.
"Kids can run fast but they were least able to withstand the flooding or hold on," she said. "So that is one of the reasons children have been particularly affected."
Tourists in Phuket are desperately trying to trace loved ones Nordic tourist death toll climbs
Scandinavian countries fear hundreds of their citizens died in Thailand as hopes fade for more than 6,000 people still missing after the tsunami there. The Swedish death toll could be more than 1,000, Sweden's Prime Minister Goran Persson said on Thursday. At least half of those missing are Western tourists - many of them from the Nordic countries and Germany. The missing include some 1,500 Swedes, 1,000 Germans, 600 Italians, 464 Norwegians, 219 Danes and 200 Finns. About 2,000 bodies have been recovered, but Thailand has appealed for foreign forensic experts to help identify them.
The victims were at resorts along Thailand's south-western coast and on outlying islands, with Phuket and Khao Lak especially hard hit by the devastating waves. Almost all the resorts on the Thai island were destroyed 'Flattened by a wall of water'
The dramatic scenery is still there: forested cliffs rising from a turquoise sea. Almost all the resorts on the Thai island were destroyed
But as you approach the beach in Phi Phi's main bay, you are confronted by scenes of horrifying destruction.
The Thai army is now here in force. They have got a helicopter here, a lot of soldiers to join the hundreds of civilian volunteers trying to deal with this appalling mess. And they all have face masks - against the overpowering stench of death that still hangs over Phi Phi. There is nothing left. Everything has been absolutely flattened by the wall of water. A Thai rescuer notes down DNA numbers of the dead bodies before burial in a mass grave in Takua Pa, after earlier collecting DNA samples of each for later identification. Thailand spent New Year's Eve in sombre mood as the confirmed death toll in the tidal wave disaster rose to 4,541, including 2,230 foreign holidaymakers.(AFP/Saeed Khan) Desperate struggle to help millions as tsunami toll passes 120,000 Desperate relief workers are struggling to get food and water to the millions of Asia's tsunami victims facing starvation and disease as the death toll passes 120,000, from what the UN has called "an unprecedented global catastrophe". Urging a matching "unprecedented global response", UN Secretary General Kofi Annan said half a billion dollars in aid had been promised or delivered for relief operations after the waves of death left up to five million people homeless in Asia. Indonesia, the worst hit among 11 affected nations with almost 80,000 dead, announced that it would host a summit of world leaders on January 6. "The meeting will be to discuss the handling of the impact of the earthquake and the tsunami," Foreign Minister Hassan Wirayuda said. Breakdown of Tsunami Death Toll by Nation At least 123,184 people were killed in 11 countries in southern Asia and East Africa from the massive earthquake and tsunamis on Dec. 26, according to official figures. A breakdown of the toll so far: _ Indonesia: At least 80,246 people were killed on Sumatra island, the government said. The health minister said Friday the country's toll could rise to 100,000. _ Sri Lanka: Some 28,729 killed. About 1 million people were displaced. _ India: The government said 8,955 deaths have been confirmed but nearly 4,000 more were missing in India's remote Andaman and Nicobar Islands, just north of Sumatra. _ Thailand: The government said 4,812 people died, including 2,230 foreigners. _ Somalia: At least 200 killed, said Somali presidential spokesman Yusuf Mohamed Ismail. _ Myanmar: About 90 people were killed, according to reports compiled by international aid agencies. _ Maldives: At least 73 people confirmed dead. _ Malaysia: At least 66 people, including an unknown number of foreign tourists, were dead, according to official reports. _ Tanzania: At least 10 people killed, said Alfred Tibaigana, police commander in Dar es Salaam. _ Bangladesh: Two killed. _ Kenya: One killed. Aerial Photos Show Tsunami's Devastation Video Shows Tsunami Hitting Beach >From NBC News and the Associated Press, we have new images and video of the South Asian tsunami disaster. The death toll could now hit 70,000, officials say. Scientific Markers Quake shook Earth to core, say scientists Accelerating its rotation and shortening days by a fraction of a second The quake that set off the devastating tsunami literally shook the Earth to its core, scientists believe, accelerating its rotation and shortening days by a fraction of a second. It may be necessary to add a "leap second" in years to come in order to correct the change. Meanwhile, experts said the quake, which measured 9.0 on the Richter scale, may have shifted some small islands in the region by more than 30 metres. Richard Gross, a geophysicist with Nasa's jet propulsion laboratory in California, said he believed a shift of mass towards the Earth's centre caused the planet to spin three microseconds - one millionth of a second - faster. It also caused the planet to tilt around 2.5cm on its axis. "[The forcing of one tectonic plate beneath the edge of another] had the effect of making the Earth more compact and spinning faster," he said, saying that the changes were too slight to be detected by global positioning satellite networks. IKONOS satellite images show the popular tourist destination of Khao Lak in southern Thailand, in scene details at 2-meter resolution, taken by the IKONOS satellite from 423 miles in space. The image on the left was taken on January 13, 2004. The image at right was taken December 29, 2004, showing the devastation from the Indian Ocean tsunami triggered by an underwater earthquake with a magnitude 9.0 off the Indonesian island of Sumatra, last Sunday. The tsunami killed at least 2,230 foreigners in Thailand, most of them in the devastated Khao Lak resort and on other southern beaches, officials said on December 30, 2004. The figures showed that Khao Lak, once lined with luxury hotels but now a scene of smashed buildings, wrecked cars and rescuers retrieving corpses, was Thailand's worst-hit area. The latest death toll from Asia stands at more than 125,000. MANDATORY CREDIT EDITORIAL USE ONLY NO SALES REUTERS/Space Imaging/CRISP-Singapore Quake's power = million atomic bombs? Like a bulldozer in Sumatra Scientists describe Sunday's devastating earthquake off the island of Sumatra as a "megathrust" -- a grade reserved for the most powerful shifts in the Earth's crust. The term doesn't entirely capture the awesome power of the fourth largest earthquake since 1900, or the tsunami catastrophes it spawned for coastal areas around the Indian Ocean. Despite its awesome power, the quake itself was not much of a surprise, scientists said Monday. Sumatra is one of the most earthquake-prone places in the world, sitting atop one of the handful of sites where several plates of the planet's crust overlap and grind. Colossal pressures build up over decades, only to release in a snap. "These subduction zones are where all the world's biggest earthquakes are produced," said geologist Kerry Sieh of the California Institute of Technology. "Sunday was one of the biggest earthquakes in the region in the past 200 years." How powerful? By some estimates, it was equal to detonating a million atomic bombs. Sieh and other scientists said it probably jolted the planet's rotation. "It causes the planet to wobble a little bit, but it's not going to turn Earth upside down," Sieh said. Globalist Response Global warning plan urged Not only should there be more sophisticated tsunami warning systems in the Pacific Ocean region, but there should be similar networks set up in other vulnerable parts of the world, including the Caribbean, say experts and federal weather officials. Those warnings, however, shouldn't come without instructions and emergency plans. "To warn people is one thing, but then you have to tell them what to do with the information," said Dan Cox, director of the O. H. Hinsdale Wave Research Laboratory at Oregon State University, which studies the impact of tsunamis. "We need to further improve our ability to provide warnings. What benefits the United States will benefit the world." Unlike the systems to warn countries around the Pacific Ocean, there is no such alert network in the Indian Ocean region, where tsunamis Sunday left tens of thousands dead and millions homeless. For decades, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has run tsunami warning systems from the West Coast, one in Hawaii and another in Alaska. UN chief to oversee tsunami relief United Nations secretary-general Kofi Annan has cut short his holiday and is returning to his New York headquarters to oversee the UN's relief exercise for Indian Ocean tsunami victims. Mr Annan will meet tonight with the UN official directly responsible for coordinating the relief, Jan Egeland. Mr Annan's spokesman says that over the past two days, the UN boss has spoken by phone with leaders of countries hard hit by the disaster, not just to offer condolences but to find out what they need most urgently. The Red Cross has put the overall death toll at almost 78,000 people, and says it will not be surprised if it reaches 100,000. Health experts estimate that some 5 million people do not have the necessary food, water and sanitation to survive.

Annan was to meet UN deputy chief for humanitarian affairs Jan Egeland on Thursday, who is coordinating UN action on the crisis, the UN chief's spokesman Fred Eckhard told a press conference. Over the past two days, Annan has spoken on telephone with leaders of countries hard-hit by the disaster, not just to offer condolences but "also to see what they need most urgently," the spokesman said. In addition, Annan "has also been in touch with the leaders of the major donor countries to review the international relief effort and to underscore the UN's coordinating role," Eckhard said. Egeland told the same briefing that his deputy, Margareta Wahlstrom, would leave New York for Geneva, where the UN's Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs is located.,001301540000.htm World unites to help save the stricken as disease threatens The world's aid agencies are mounting the largest, most complex and costly disaster relief operation in history as the known death toll from the south Asian tsunami passes 60,000. Two days after the undersea earthquake off northern Sumatra sent giant walls of water crashing into tourist resorts and poor coastal communities across the region, the unprecedented scale of the disaster grew clearer. The World Health Organisation (WHO) warned that cholera, dysentery and typhoid in the 11 affected countries could double the original number of dead. Hundreds of millions of dollars would need to be delivered by international governments within days to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe, a spokesman said. The United Nations said that US$80m (£41.5m) had been pledged, although donors would need to raise more than four times that amount to cope. More Hegelian UN-Good-Cop/US Bad-Cop mindgames Bush, Annan Compete Over Tsunami Aid as Toll Soars As the death toll from the tsunami in South Asia surged past 119,000 and the unprecedented magnitude of the disaster sank in, clear signs emerged yesterday of competition among nations, international organizations, and coalitions over which would be the most helpful to the victims. A day after President Bush announced the formation of a "core group," composed of America, Australia, India, and Japan, to lead the relief effort, Secretary-General Annan tried to dispel the notion that the United Nations could lose its leading humanitarian role in Asia, as it saw its role in Iraq eclipsed when the "coalition of the willing" was formed outside the U.N. to oust Saddam Hussein. Around the Indian Ocean, the death toll climbed without signs of ceasing. The count "will rise further today," the coordinator of the U.N. relief effort, Jan Egeland, predicted at a press conference alongside Mr. Annan, who returned yesterday from a year-end vacation in Jackson Hole, Wyo. In Sri Lanka and India, authorities were sufficiently concerned about a second tsunami resulting from an aftershock to order evacuations of several coastal areas, the Associated Press reported. Local experts said, however, that the magnitude of the aftershock was unlikely to produce tidal waves similar to the ones that occurred last week. World's biggest aid operation for devastated Asian countries The world's biggest-ever aid operation got into gear to help Asian countries stricken by tsunamis that smashed coastal towns leaving misery and the risk of disease in their wake. The unprecedented effort involved neighbouring Asian states, Europeans, the United States and international organisations. Doctors and relief workers faced vast devastation, with the latest death tolls across the region totalling more than 55,000 late Tuesday. In Geneva, a senior United Nations official said the world body was on the brink of launching its largest-ever appeal. Yvette Stevens, UN Assistant Emergency Relief aid coordinator, said the international aid needed for the areas around the Indian Ocean was likely to exceed the previous record UN appeal of 1.6 billion dollars for Iraq last year. The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies appealed for 44 million dollars in immediate aid. Italy's Berlusconi Calls for G8 Summit on Tsunami Italy's Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi called on Thursday for a Group of Eight (G8) meeting so that the rich nations club could discuss their response to Asia's tsunami disaster which has killed around 120,000 people. "I want to propose an extraordinary G8 meeting," Berlusconi told reporters after a news conference. "The meeting should discuss the organization of aid and the possible reduction of debt." France and Germany said they favored using debt relief as a way of helping the countries hit by Sunday's disaster, in which giant waves triggered by a powerful earthquake flattened fishing villages and tourists resorts along the Indian Ocean's coasts. French President Jacques Chirac called earlier on Thursday for the Paris Club of leading creditor nations to declare a moratorium on debt owed to by the affected countries. Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi called for an emergency meeting of the Group of Eight The death toll in the Indian Ocean tsunami disaster has soared above 120,000 as millions scramble for food and fresh water and thousands more flee in panic to high ground on rumours of new waves. Aid agencies warned on Thursday that many more, from Indonesia to Sri Lanka, could die in epidemics if shattered communications and transport hampered what may prove history's biggest relief operation. Rescue workers pressed on into isolated villages shattered by a disaster that could yet eclipse a cyclone that struck Bangladesh in 1991, killing 138,000 people. Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi called for an emergency meeting of the Group of Eight so that the rich nations club could discuss aid and possible debt reduction following "the worst cataclysm of the modern era". The total toll had shot up more than 50 percent in a day with still no clear picture of conditions in some isolated islands and villages around India and Indonesia. Britain sees G8 role in tsunami reconstruction Britain sees a role for the G8 nations in long-term reconstruction after this week’s tsunami in Asia, but expects the United Nations to lead immediate relief efforts, Prime Minister Tony Blair’s office said yesterday. A spokeswoman for Blair said there were no plans for a special meeting of the Group of Eight industrialised countries as proposed on Thursday by Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi. Britain assumes leadership of the G8 this week. US-sponsored 4-nation coalition to deal with Asian catastrophe US President George W. Bush announced Wednesday that the United States, Australia, Japan and India would form a coalition to organize humanitarian relief for Asia, which was hit by an earthquake and tsunamis. The four-nation coalition would lead the international responseto the catastrophe that has left more than 80,000 people dead, Bush told reporters after emerging from a holiday vacation at his Texas ranch to make his first comment on the four-day-old disaster.He urged other nations to join. Bush said he phoned the leaders of stricken countries to solicit specific needs and assure them the initial aid package "isonly the beginning of our help." The United States has pledged 35 million US dollars in assistance and rehabilitation, with additions expected as assessments of damage are collected. Besides, the Pentagon has committed six cargo planes and nine reconnaissance planes, and has diverted warships from Hong Kong and Guam to survey damage and help with recovery. Three military scouting teams began arriving Wednesday in Thailand, Sri Lanka and Indonesia. For now, the United States is focusing on water and sanitation in the disaster-affected region. "That is the greatest risk to people's lives," said Andrew S. Natsios, director of the US Agencyfor International Development. U.S. to give long-range aid in Asia US to increase tsunami aid to 350 million dollars The United States is to increase its aid for victims of Asia's tsunami disaster to 350 million dollars, President George W. Bush announced. The US leader said in a statement that because the needs of stricken populations would increase in the weeks ahead, "I am today committing 350 million dollars to fund the US portion of the relief effort. "Our contributions will continue to be revised as the full effects of this terrible tragedy become clearer." Deputy White House spokesman Trent Duffy said the 350 million dollars includes 35 million dollars already announced by the US government. He said the extra money would come from different parts of the federal budget but would not affect money to be used for the rebuilding of Iraq. U.N. official slams U.S. as 'stingy' over aid The Bush administration yesterday pledged $15 million to Asian nations hit by a tsunami that has killed more than 22,500 people, although the United Nations' humanitarian-aid chief called the donation "stingy." "The United States, at the president's direction, will be a leading partner in one of the most significant relief, rescue and recovery challenges that the world has ever known," said White House deputy press secretary Trent Duffy. But U.N. Undersecretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Jan Egeland suggested that the United States and other Western nations were being "stingy" with relief funds, saying there would be more available if taxes were raised. "It is beyond me why are we so stingy, really," the Norwegian-born U.N. official told reporters. "Christmastime should remind many Western countries at least, [of] how rich we have become." "There are several donors who are less generous than before in a growing world economy," he said, adding that politicians in the United States and Europe "believe that they are really burdening the taxpayers too much, and the taxpayers want to give less. It's not true. They want to give more." People are living in a kind of dreamworld where nothing is real and everything is based on deception and illusion. A very dangerous situation indeed, but an intentional manipulation of minds by the financial establishment which cleverly hides its secrets from the masses. One of the things which nobody it talking about is the fact that the US has no real money to give anyone to begin with since it is in public and private debt to the tune of $37 trillion. And the same is true of most other debtor-nations, if not all of them. So who is really giving anything here? The fact is all this relief money is lended by the international banking establishment as yet more debt on the backs of those who are supposedly giving the money! New York Times says US is 'stingy' The New York Times said Thursday that the United States has been stingy in its response to the Asian tsunami disaster and in giving aid in general. The newspaper highlighted in an editorial that the 15 million dollars initially offered by Washington was less than the figure the ruling Republican Party would spend on President George W. Bush's inauguration in January. Bush and Secretary of State Colin Powell have given indignant reactions to a comment by UN chief disaster relief coordinator Jan Egeland that rich nations have been "stingy" in giving aid to poorer nations. "We beg to differ," said the New York Times. "Mr Egeland was right on target." That is about $60 million, but again, where is it coming from in a land where farmers make something like 30 dollars a year and the rest struggle like slaves working often double and triple shifts to scramble for survival and pay off punitive debts? China promises 500mln yuan more aid to tsunami-hit nations Premier Wen Jiabao announced here Friday that China will offer an additional 500 million yuan (60.46 million US dollars) of humanitarian aid to the earthquake and tsunami-hit countries. Wen made the announcement while meeting with diplomatic envoys of the Indian Ocean tsunami-hit countries in China and representatives of some international organizations here. He said the Chinese government will closely follow the situation and further help will be available when it is needed. "On behalf of the Chinese government, Chinese people and President Hu Jintao and also in the name of my own, I'd like to, once again, convey my sincere sympathy to the disaster-hit countries and peoples, and my deep condolences to the victims," Wen said. U.N.: Tsunami Disaster Will Cost Billions As world governments and private organizations increase their financial pledges for the tsunami disaster in Asia, the United Nations is stressing that billions will be needed in the long-term. U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan says he's "satisfied" with world government relief pledges for victims of the tsunami, but he stressed that U.N. resources are stretched thin and long-term aid is needed. Around $500 million has been pledged so far, including a $250 million commitment from the World Bank, Annan said Thursday. "This is an unprecedented global catastrophe and it requires an unprecedented global response," he said. "Over the past few days it has registered deeply in the consciousness and conscience of the world as we seek to grasp the speed, the force and magnitude with which it happened. But we must also remain committed for the longer term," he said. U.S. Will Join EU in Tsunami Aid Conference, Official Says The U.S. will join the European Union at a proposed conference to gather international aid for victims of the tsunamis in Asia and Africa, the State Department said. ``The United States will participate at the senior level in whatever donors conference is held,'' State Department spokesman Richard Boucher said in Washington today. The EU's development aid commissioner, Louis Michel, proposed the international conference to coordinate assistance to the countries affected by the Dec. 26 earthquake and resulting tsunamis. The confirmed death toll today neared 115,000. President George W. Bush said yesterday that $35 million in aid the U.S. has pledged is ``only the beginning'' of the U.S. recovery effort. Bush said a United Nations official who initially described Western nations as ``stingy'' with aid was ``misguided and misinformed.'' A rapid and generous U.S. response might improve the U.S.'s relations with the affected countries while aiding the fight against terrorism, said R.P. Eddy, who served in the Clinton administration as director of counterterrorism at the White House National Security Council. ``If a government can't provide basic services for its citizens and a third party swoops in as provider of food, education, shelter, etcetera, the third party builds good will,'' Eddy said. World Bank pledges 250 million dollars in aid for tsunami-hit countries The World Bank has pledged to allocate 250 million US dollars for relief efforts after the devastating tidal waves hit southern Asia and eastern Africa, the United Nations said on Thursday. UN spokesman Fred Eckhard said the fund was announced by World Bank President James Wolfensohn in a phone conversation with UN Secretary General Kofi Annan earlier in the day. Eckhard said the sum brought to 500 million dollars in pledged aid for countries to cope with the unprecedented tsunami disaster. Annan was giving a press conference after meeting at the UN headquarters in New York with ambassadors from Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Maldives, Myanmar, Somalia, Sri Lanka andThailand, the nations struck by the tsunami. Tsunamis result in biggest aid relief campaign ever: PETER CAVE: International organizations are scrambling into action to try to get humanitarian aid to nations devastated by the massive tsunamis. The United Nations says this is going to be the biggest relief campaign in history, running into the billions of dollars. The United States Government is promising to play a leading role in aid efforts, as our North America Correspondent Leigh Sales reports. LEIGH SALES: This is going to be the most mammoth emergency relief effort the world has ever seen. Individual governments, the United Nations, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the Red Cross and other charities are all working together to get humanitarian aid into the worst affected areas urgently. The very first efforts will be directed towards Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Thailand. The head of the UN aid campaign is Jan Egeland, and he says the greatest challenge right now is working out where to concentrate resources. United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan speaks about disaster relief efforts in Asia. (AP photo) Annan 'satisfied' with world response to disaster The world community has pledged more than half a billion dollars in aid to tsunami disaster victims, United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan said Thursday, adding that he is satisfied with the response so far. "This is an unprecedented global catastrophe and requires unprecedented global response," Annan said. He confirmed that at least 115,000 people were killed in the disaster, as far as the United Nations knows. Half a million others were injured and one million were left homeless. Military Operations US to deploy 1,500 marines for Sri Lanka tsunami relief The United States will send up to 1,500 marines with at least one ship and 22 aircraft, including Black Hawks, to help Sri Lanka's tsunami relief efforts, US marine Colonel Tom Collins said. Operation "Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief" will be the biggest ever US military deployment in Sri Lanka. The first contingent of 200 marines was expected here Sunday travelling from their base at Okinawa in Japan, Collins said, adding they would be responsible for setting up logistics for larger US military efforts.

Disaster survivors swarmed US Navy helicopters bringing emergency rations to isolated communities in Indonesia as aircraft carrying international aid began streaming in to the devastated region(AFP/AFP) US military aid role a first in Indonesia American navy helicopters and transport planes have begun ferrying aid supplies to Aceh province six days after a tsunami slammed into the coast killing tens of thousands of people. In a groundbreaking piece of diplomacy, US soldiers will for the first time touch down on Indonesian soil in an operational capacity. Australian military aircraft have been involved in relief work in Aceh since mid-week, joining small Malaysian, Singaporean and New Zealand contingents. The aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln is off the north shore of Sumatra where upwards of 80,000 people are believed to have died. War Like Situtaion for Indian Military - Tsunami Crisis Mukherjee put the official death toll at 6,974 but other reliable estimates said up to 13,000 people could have died in the states and island territories hit by Sunday's gigantic tidal waves. With more bodies being found in Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Pondicherry and the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, the official toll rose sharply from Tuesday's figure of 4,371, he told a news conference here. India's armed forces have mounted their biggest operation in peacetime to provide succour to people in the country's tsunami-hit areas, with 4,000 troops and scores of ships and aircraft joining the effort, Defence Minister Pranab Mukherjee said Wednesday. 4,000 troops in military's largest peacetime op The Indian Armed Forces call it Operation Sea Wave -- the largest peacetime operation ever undertaken by the Indian Army, Indian Navy and Indian Air Force. The operation is being conducted by the Integrated Defence Staff, India's attempt at integrating the three services' higher command that will eventually lead to the post of a Chief of Defence Staff. Till date, due to inter-services differences, the government has yet to announce a CDS, a four-star rank (general, admiral or air chief marshal) officer who would be the key advisor to the government on defence matters. In the interregnum, the government created an Integrated Defence Staff, headed by a three-star chief (lieutenant general, vice-admiral or air marshal). The first Chief of Integrated Services, officially known as the Chief of Integrated Staff to the Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff, was Lieutenant General Pankaj Joshi. Prior Knowledge, Again N Venkatanath, research scholar, and N Rajeshwara Rao, research supervisor, Department of Applied Geology, University of Madras. Photo: A Prathap Some knew it was coming In fact, the quake was actually predicted a week ago. The memories and the trauma caused by the tidal wave that washed out parts of coastal Chennai and other parts of the State yesterday will haunt the minds of the people for a long time to come. It is a tough task to forget the damage left behind by the wave that was triggered by an earthquake in far off Indonesia. The Richter scale recorded the quake to be in the magnitude of 9.0. What is so mysterious about the earthquake and the subsequent tidal wave? Cannot it be predicted earlier and the people be warned of it? Could necessary precautions be taken to minimise the loss to life and property? In fact, the quake was actually predicted by a team of research scholars of the Department of Applied Geology, University of Madras, with a permissible error, a week ago. N Venkatanathan, research scholar, who is currently undergoing a Ph.D programme in Predicting Earthquake and Aseismic Construction Designing and the man behind the team working on predictions, said he had already presented a report about the Indonesian earthquake on 22 December to members of the Department of Science and Technology, New Delhi. Foreknowledge of A Natural Disaster Washington was aware that a deadly Tidal Wave was building up in the Indian Ocean 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 ). The U.S. knew about the tsunami "Governments just have to cooperate." "It's a people problem, not a technology problem," said geophysicist Teng-fong Wong of the State University of New York-Stony Brook. "Governments just have to cooperate." International ocean monitors predicted that a tsunami would likely follow the deadly earthquake that hit the Indian Ocean on Sunday. But they didn’t know who to inform. "We put out a bulletin within 20 minutes, technically as fast as we could do it," said Jeff LaDouce, an official in the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. LaDouce noted that they e-mailed Indonesian officials, but said that he wasn’t aware what happened after they sent the e-mails. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center is an international system of monitoring stations stationed in Hawaii. It monitors the Pacific and warn nearby countries of any expected disasters. But the problem with Sunday’s deadly earthquake is that the Indian Ocean isn’t guarded by such systems. The monitors that detect tsunami surges have been available for decades. They sense and record water heights and transmit measurements throughout the Pacific network. False alarms are common and can affect the speed with which bulletins can be released. A false alarm in Hawaii in 1986 caused at least $30 million in evacuation costs. Swedish newspaper: Tsunami warning was stopped Just minutes after the earthquake in the Indian Ocean on Sunday morning, Thailand's foremost meterological experts were sitting together in a crisis meeting. But they decided not to warn about the tsunami "out of courtesy to the tourist industry", write the Thailand daily newspaper The Nation. The experts got the news around 8:00 am on Sunday morning local time. An hour later, the first massive wave struck. But the experts started to discuss the economic impacts when they were discussing if a tsunami warning should be made. The main argument against such a warning was that there have not been any floods in 300 years. Also, the experts believed the Indonesian island Sumatra would be a "cushion" for the southern coast of Thailand. The experts also had bad information; they thought the tremor was 8.1. A similar earthquake occurred in the same area in 2002 with no flooding at all. We finally decided not to do anything because the tourist season was in full swing. The hotels were 100% booked full. What if we issued a warning, which would have led to an evacuation, and nothing had happened. What would be the outcome? The tourist industry would be immediately hurt. Our department would not be able to endure a lawsuit... Do wild animals have a sixth sense? Did animals have quake warning? Wildlife officials in Sri Lanka have reported that, despite the loss of human life in the Asian disaster, there have been no recorded animal deaths. Waves from the worst tsunami in memory sent floodwater surging up to 3.5km (two miles) inland to the island's biggest wildlife reserve. Many tourists drowned but, to the surprise of officials, no dead animals have been found. It has highlighted claims that animals may possess a sixth sense about danger. Tsunami Adds to Belief in Animals' 'Sixth Sense' Wild animals seem to have escaped the Indian Ocean tsunami, adding weight to notions they possess a "sixth sense" for disasters, experts said Thursday. Sri Lankan wildlife officials have said the giant waves that killed over 24,000 people along the Indian Ocean island's coast seemingly missed wild beasts, with no dead animals found. "No elephants are dead, not even a dead hare or rabbit. I think animals can sense disaster. They have a sixth sense. They know when things are happening," H.D. Ratnayake, deputy director of Sri Lanka's Wildlife Department, said Wednesday. The waves washed floodwaters up to 2 miles inland at Yala National Park in the ravaged southeast, Sri Lanka's biggest wildlife reserve and home to hundreds of wild elephants and several leopards. "There has been a lot of anecdotal evidence about dogs barking or birds migrating before volcanic eruptions or earthquakes. But it has not been proven," said Matthew van Lierop, an animal behavior specialist at Johannesburg Zoo. This was stated on December 27th, the second day of reporting. 2000 UN workers and hundreds of planes all ready to go? UN Says `Enormous' Aid Effort Follows Deadly Quake 2,000 UN workers and hundreds of airplanes will arrive within 48 hours The United Nations said 24 countries have joined ``an enormous relief effort'' following a 9.0 magnitude earthquake off Indonesia's coast that killed more than 23,000 and destroyed towns from Thailand to India. Aftershocks may cause further tsunamis and flooding, officials said. Damage from the earthquake, the world's biggest in four decades, ``will probably be many billions of dollars,'' said Jan Egeland, the UN's head of humanitarian affairs. Insurers' losses may be less than $5 billion because so little property in the region is insured, according to Robert Hartwig, an Insurance Information Institute economist in New York. Egeland said more than 2,000 UN workers and hundreds of airplanes will arrive within 48 hours in the eight nations most severely affected by the earthquake off Sumatra. The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies asked for $6.6 million in emergency aid and the World Food Program appealed for $1.5 million. Australia has sent two military planes to Malaysia to ferry emergency supplies such as bottled water and tarpaulins to the affected countries, Prime Minister John Howard told a press briefing. Diseases and Disease Scares Disease after tsunami could kill thousands: UN As many people who were killed in this weekend's earthquake-sparked tsunami could die from disease in the aftermath, says a top World Health Organization official. Dr. David Nabarro, head of the UN agency's heath crisis team, told a news conference Tuesday that with flood waters contaminating drinking water and destroying sanitation systems, the region could be headed to for a health catastrophe matching the extent of the tidal wave disaster. "There is certainly a chance that we could have as many dying from communicable diseases as from the tsunami," Nabarro said, suggesting the current death toll of 50,000 could double. "The immediate terror of the tsunami may be dwarfed by long-term suffering in the affected countries where the risk of widespread disease is very high," he said. UN warns of epidemics in quake-hit Asia The United Nations has warned of epidemics within days unless health systems in southern Asia can cope after more than 14,000 people were killed and hundreds of thousands left homeless by a giant tsunami. Aid agencies round the world rushed staff, equipment and money to southern Asia after huge waves, triggered by a massive underwater earthquake, pummelled and swamped coastal communities in at least six countries on Sunday. "This may be the worst national disaster in recent history because it is affecting so many heavily populated coastal areas ... so many vulnerable communities," the U.N.'s Emergency Relief Coordinator Jan Egeland told CNN. "The longer term effects may be as devastating as the tidal wave or the tsunami itself ... Many more people are now affected by polluted drinking water. We could have epidemics within a few days unless we get health systems up and running. "Many people will have (had) their livelihoods, their whole future destroyed in a few seconds." Group: Bodies Pose No Threat of Outbreaks Dead bodies cannot cause disease outbreaks, the Pan American Health Organization said Wednesday, hoping to avert mass burials of tens of thousands of unidentified victims from the tsunami in Asia and Africa. There is no danger of corpses contaminating water or soil because bacteria and viruses cannot survive in dead bodies, said Dana Van Alphan, an adviser to the organization's Office of Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Relief. She said it was important for survivors to be allowed to identify loved ones and urged authorities in tsunami-stricken countries to avoid burying unidentified corpses in mass graves. "I think that psychologically, people have to be given the chance to identify their family members," she said. "Whatever disease the person has while still alive poses no threat to public health in a corpse." Related Info? How to "Broadcast" Diseases Longitudinal EM Biowars Quantum Potential Weapons Can Broadcast Disease "terrible beyond comprehension." According to scientist Tom Bearden, the leading U.S. expert on scalar electromagnetics, there is something much worse on the horizon about "the causes of disease." This is a new type of electromagnetic weapon called the "Quantum Potential Weapon" which goes beyond even the incredible abilities of the Longitudinal Wave Interferometers. According to his information it was tested in the Gulf War and is ONE of the causes (not necessarily the only one) of the Gulf War syndrome. The Quantum Potential weapon, in short, can create ("broadcast") disease states over a large area by electromagnetics and cause the disease state to appear even without the presence of the usual disease organism. This is Biowarfare Beyond Biowarfare. Bearden is unusually hush about about this new weapon, possessed by at least the Russians, and perhaps the Chinese. It is terrible beyond comprehension. One of the main ways it is used is to compromise and weaked the immune systems of those in the target region by creating local space-time curvature "engines" bearing the quantum patterns of several diseases at once. By keeping the level of the broadcast at a low level "shadow disease states" are created in the body such that the immune state is triggered to try to fight them. The immune system is "fooled" and goes into overdrive gradually depleting it to a point where conventional biowarfare would be far more (10 times?) effective than otherwise. Aftershocks and More Tsunami Scares Scientists wary of another tsunami Geologists are closely monitoring aftershocks from Sunday's immense earthquake off the Indonesian island of Sumatra and worry they could cause more property damage and perhaps launch another tsunami. Rescue personnel and survivors of the Indian Ocean tsunami are being shaken regularly by the aftershocks, which could last for another year. "In earthquake forecasting, we generally cannot be very specific about when the next big earthquake is going to be, but you can forecast that large quakes will continue to happen up to a year or more," said Brian Yanagi, tsunami program manager with Hawai'i Civil Defense. Volcanic Eruption Could Unleash Giant Tsunamis on U.S. The threat from a collapsing mountain in the Atlantic Ocean could unleash deadly tidal waves on a similar scale to the Asian tsunami, a scientist warned today. Hundreds of millions of people could die in a disaster affecting Britain and the eastern United States. Professor Bill McGuire called for an early warning system to be installed to counter the potential danger. Researchers have discovered that a chunk of volcano in the Canary Islands the size of the Isle of Man is on the brink of falling into the sea. Scientists believe it could break away when the Cumbre Vieja volcano in La Palma next erupts. If that happened a giant tsunami, or massive wave, reaching heights of more than 500 feet would be sent racing across the Atlantic at the speed of a passenger jet. Around nine hours later it would hit the Caribbean islands and the east coasts of Canada and the US. After travelling 4,000 miles the wave would be lower and wider but still around 20 metres – 50 metres (66ft – 164ft) high. Thousands flee in terror after new tsunami warning THOUSANDS of people fled for their lives today as fresh tsunami alerts were issued across the Indian Ocean. Panic gripped the southern coast of India, neighbouring Sri Lanka and Thailand after authorities warned people to flee coastal areas following a series of mild aftershocks. Officials said tremors in the Andaman and Nicobar islands, near the epicentre of the quake that caused Sunday’s tsunami, would "likely" cause high waves and began evacuating residents living within two miles of the coastline. Sirens blared on beaches in Tamil Nadu as people ran away crying: "Waves are coming! Waves are coming!" Television footage from Nagappattinam, where more than 4000 people died, also showed shocked residents running through the streets. "We got into a truck and fled," said 40-year-old Gandhimathi. "We took only a few clothes and left behind everything we had." Moderate earthquakes in Nicobar, Sumatra A series of earthquakes of moderate intensity jolted the Great Nicobar Islands and Northern Sumatra early on Friday, while Jammu and Kashmir too was rattled by a tremor, Indian Meteorological Department said here. However, no casualty or damage has been reported so far due to them. A quake mesuring 5.8 on Richter Scale hit the Great Nicobar islands at 0754 hrs IST this morning. It was epicentred at 7.2 degree north latitude and 92.1 degree east longitude. It was preceded by two earthquakes measuring 5.5 and 5.2 on the richter scale at 0306 IST hours and 0435 IST hrs respectively. While the epicentre of the first quake was at 6.7 degree north latitude and 93.7 degree east longitude, the other was epicentred at 6.7 degree north and 94 degree east, it said. Historic Precedents? Just a mere coincidence. Nothing to worry about of course. The Great Wave Coincidentally, the Iranian Citadel of Bam was also leveled to the ground last year on December 26th The season to be jolly was brought to an abrupt and traumatic end the day after Christmas, with harrowing news of a gargantuan seaquake which leapt off the Richter scale. Measuring 9.0 and at a very shallow depth of only 6 miles, it caused tidal waves which swept across the Indian Ocean without warning, traveling at jet-speed. Coincidentally, the Iranian Citadel of Bam was also leveled to the ground last year on December 26th by an earthquake, close to the surface, registering 6.6 which killed over 40,000 Islamic people. The death toll from the tsunami which followed in the wake of the Asian quake could exceed 60,000, as we become desensitized to mass graves. The media were quick to label the Asian catastrophe, ‘The Great Wave’ - a double entendre and insider joke…? Nicola Tesla was credited with the discovery of the electromagnetic propagation effect and experimented with giant standing waves which could be combined to produce a focused beam of immense energy and used to trigger earthquakes in distant places. The late Phil Schneider, a geological and structural engineer who turned ‘whistleblower’ claimed that the tell-tale signature of man-made earthquakes, like Kobe, is that they are shallow and not accompanied by a pulse wave… none, unlike a normal tremor. Similar disasters in Gujarat, Iran and Algeria may have been further examples of the diabolical ‘telegeodynamic’ Tesla device. This terrible event has temporarily sidetracked the quagmire in Iraq, but there is a surreptitious war going on all around us, in the guise of “Earth Changes” - floods, drought, volcanoes, avalanches and earthquakes, and the victims are oblivious to the fact that they are under attack from Luciferians, emulating ‘End Times’ prophecy fulfillment, while we celebrate the birth of Christ. Psychological scars run deep a year after Bam earthquake in Iran Red Crescent workers offer relief to the stricken Domestic violence and drug addiction mar the Iranian city of Bam as residents suffer psychological problems one year after a massive earthquake killed more than 31,000 of their relatives, friends and neighbors, the Red Cross federation said. For the first time in its history, the agency deployed a psychological support program immediately after the disaster, and said that it hoped to use the lessons that are still being learnt when it tackles the next crisis. Some 75,000 people were left homeless by the quake that struck on Dec. 26, 2003, and almost every family in the city of about 120,000 lost a loved one, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies said late Monday. "Twelve months later, signs of the devastation are still evident, not just in the collapsed buildings but in people's minds," said Mohammed Mukhier, head of the international federation's operations in Iran. Thousands of people have displayed psychological problems ranging from sleeping disorders and an inability to socialize normally to explosive behavior and domestic violence, the agency warned. There had also been a dramatic increase in drug abuse. However, Mukhier said the model of integrating psychological support into a relief effort following a disaster had shown positive results. Bam earthquake: one year later, thousands still need psychological support One year after a violent tremor killed more than 26,000 people and destroyed 85% of the city of Bam, in south-eastern Iran, thousands of residents still suffer from the trauma caused by the devastating earthquake of 26 December 2003. Some 75 thousand people were left homeless and practically every family in the city of almost 120,000 has lost a parent, a child, a sibling or a friend. The psychological disorders caused by the quake are characterized by sleep disorders, inability to carry out normal social functions, explosive behaviour, domestic violence and a dramatic increase in drug addiction. They are being tackled by an innovative programme of psychological support implemented by the Iranian Red Crescent Society (IRCS). The Bam relief operation is the first one in the history of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement where extensive psychological support has been deployed immediately following a large scale disaster. "Russian manufactured 7 magnitude earthquake in Central Asia during the 70's" Russia responsible for Tiflis earthquake ? Georgians thinks that Russia is responsible for Tiflis earthquake where the earthquake of 6 magnitude tolled the lives of 5 people. The earthquakes of lower intensity were repeating in Tiflis and leader of Greens Party Georgi Gachecheladze claimed that artificial earthquakes are manufactured by the Russians in Abkhazian Esherskoy sysmic observatory. Georgi Gachecheladze claimed that Russians were active since USSR times in Abkhazian Esherskoy sysmic observatory to manufacrure tectonic weapons. Gachecheladze claimed that Esherskoy sysmic observatory is directly an installation of the Russian militarizm. Georgi Gachecheladze further claimed and referred to the Russian sysmic specialist Aleksey Nikolayev and mentioned of the "Russian manufactured 7 magnitude earthquake in Central Asia during the 70's," and quoted this weapon as a product of Esherskoy sysmic observatory. TESLA DOOM WEAPONS & AUM SHINRIKYO Suggestions that the Kobe event may have been caused by a laser-powered seismic weapon continue to circulate. When it comes to Aum Shinrikyo - the sinister Japanese cult said to be responsible for the Tokyo subway Sarin attack in 1995 - almost anything is possible. But some serious journalists and independent scientists who have investigated the shadowy background of Aum, are unravelling sinuous connections that leap-frog the Aum story into another league altogether.[i] These focus on claims that Aum were intimately involved in the research and development of futuristic doomsday weapons that make today’s nuclear missiles look like children’s toys. These weapons, they believe, are so advanced that they don’t “officially” exist in the armouries of the major powers. These involve the use of Tesla Electromagnetic pulse, earthquake inducing and Plasma weapons being covertly tested in remote regions of the world. Laying at the centre of these allegations are a series of powerful earthquakes, strange fireballs and aerial lights manifesting above Western Australia. They also revolve around the major January 1995 quake which laid waste to the Japanese City of Kobe. The latter resulted in the crash of the Tokyo stock exchange - itself directly leading to the collapse of England’s spook-infested Barings bank. Suggestions that the Kobe event may have been caused by a laser-powered seismic weapon continue to circulate. Extraordinarily, Aum’s charismatic guru, Shoko Asahara, predicted the Kobe quake nine days before the event. In an 8 January 1995 radio broadcast, Asahara stated “Japan will be attacked by an earthquake in 1995. The most likely place is Kobe.” Hideo Murai, the late Science and Technology minister for Aum Shinrikyo also adhered to this view. Murai - said to have been the most intelligent Japanese who ever lived - was murdered in a Yakuza orchestrated assassination shortly after speaking on the record to foreign news correspondents.[ii] General Facts and Speculation on Tectonic Weaponry Site contains some of the most authentic information on tectonic weaponry available The Tom Bearden Website `Space Preservation Act of 2001'. A BILL To preserve the cooperative, peaceful uses of space for the benefit of all humankind by permanently prohibiting the basing of weapons in space by the United States, and to require the President to take action to adopt and implement a world treaty banning space-based weapons. The term `exotic weapons systems' includes weapons designed to damage space or natural ecosystems (such as the ionosphere and upper atmosphere) or climate, weather, and tectonic systems with the purpose of inducing damage or destruction upon a target population or region on earth or in space. Such terms include exotic weapons systems such as--chemical, biological, environmental, climate, or tectonic weapons. Secretary of Defense Reveals Earthquake and Volcano Weapons "set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely" This one might seem beyond belief, but we have it from none other than a sitting Secretary of Defense. In April 1997, then-Defense Secretary William Cohen was speaking at a terrorism conference at the University of Georgia. After some introductory remarks about the conference, Cohen takes questions from the media in attendance. A reporter asks a question based on the fake anthrax letters that had recently been sent to B'nai Brith. Cohen gives a strange answer, using the occasion to mention the exotic weapons being developed by terrorists (as well as--one would assume--governments). Here's the exchange, taken verbatim from the transcript posted on the Defense Department's Website: Q: Let me ask you specifically about last week's scare here in Washington, and what we might have learned from how prepared we are to deal with that (inaudible), at B'nai Brith. A: Well, it points out the nature of the threat. It turned out to be a false threat under the circumstances. But as we've learned in the intelligence community, we had something called -- and we have James Woolsey here to perhaps even address this question about phantom moles. The mere fear that there is a mole within an agency can set off a chain reaction and a hunt for that particular mole which can paralyze the agency for weeks and months and years even, in a search. The same thing is true about just the false scare of a threat of using some kind of a chemical weapon or a biological one. There are some reports, for example, that some countries have been trying to construct something like an Ebola Virus, and that would be a very dangerous phenomenon, to say the least. Alvin Toeffler has written about this in terms of some scientists in their laboratories trying to devise certain types of pathogens that would be ethnic specific so that they could just eliminate certain ethnic groups and races; and others are designing some sort of engineering, some sort of insects that can destroy specific crops. Others 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 efforts, and that's why this is so important. Human Engineered Earthquakes Let's now explore what has been, and what is being done in the area of geophysical manipulations. The primary focus here will be human-induced earthquakes, as this is a main area of Elite interest. This is, of course, because earthquakes are so profound and have the most dramatic effects for purposes of controlling populations. Most people may never comprehend the fact that human beings have the capability to produce such things, or that humans would ever do such things to each other. So, when an earthquake occurs, very few would ever even think of asking, "Was that natural or man-made?" Actually, now that we have progressed into a higher level of activity with respect to Earth Changes, it becomes increasingly more difficult to know which is which. In some places the ground seems to be shaking all the time! As you will recall, in Part V of this series, we mentioned Nicola Tesla's 'Controlled Earthquakes of 1935,' labelled by Tesla as "the art of telegeodynamics." Tesla was able to cause "rhythmical vibrations to pass through the Earth with almost no loss of energy," and he could "convey these mechanical effects to the greatest terrestrial distances and produce all kinds of unique effects." The author has little information on developments over the forty years following 1935, yet something must have been happening because, as mentioned in Part IX of this series, a Senate sub-committee hearing, chaired by Senator Claiborne Pell, stated that: "We need a treaty now...before the military leaders of the world start directing storms, manipulating climates and inducing earthquakes against their enemies." Senator Pell would not have spoken these words in 1975 about inducing earthquakes unless he had some knowledge that such technology existed. Also, reported in Part IX of this series, on December 10, 1976, the General Assembly of the United Nations approved the 'Convention of the Prohibition of Military or any Other Hostile Use of Environmental Modification Techniques,' and issued a report. Again, such a report would not have been issued if there were not technology in place capable of environmental modification, including the ability to induce earthquakes. Earthquakes: Natural or Man-made? We bring to the attention of our readers an article on climate manipulation published in 1999, focusing specifically on the incidence of earthquakes. While there is no evidence of the application of weather modification techniques in the case of the Iran Earthquake, it is important to understand that the US not only possesses the weather modification technologies, it has also confirmed its intent to use them. :"[W]eather-modification offers the war fighter a wide-range of possible options to defeat or coerce an adversary... In the United States, weather-modification will likely become a part of national security policy with both domestic and international applications. Our government will pursue such a policy, depending on its interests, at various levels." (Air University of the US Air Force, AF 2025 Final Report, )
"Technology will make available, to the leaders of major nations, techniques for conducting secret warfare, of which only a bare minimum of the security forces need be appraised... [T]echniques of weather modification could be employed to produce prolonged periods of drought or storm." (Zbigniew Brzezinski, Former National Security Adviser, Between Two Ages, Greenwood Publishing Group, 1992)
Weather modification technology is being perfected under the High-frequency Active Auroral 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.

Unknown Energy Surges Continue to Hit Planet;
Global Weather Systems in Chaos
An increasingly panicked global effort is now underway by the world's top scientists to understand an unprecedented series of 'blasts', energy surges, which the planet has been taking from an as yet unknown source which has been bombarding Antarctica with cosmic rays and disrupting Northern Hemisphere weather systems on a global scale. The first of these cosmic ray blasts occurred nearly 5 years ago and have been increasing in their frequency and intensity since the end of November. The once normally darkened skies of the Northern Hemisphere's Arctic regions are now in twilight due to these blasts. Wayne Davidson, from the Canadian Government's weather station at Resolute Bay, located in the Arctic Circle, says about this mysterious lighting, "The entire horizon is raised like magic, like the hand of God is bringing it up." On December 1, 2004 the largest recorded blast sent not only shockwaves through the world scientific community but also through the Northern Hemisphere resulting
in one of the largest weather events in recorded human history when 86,800 square miles of China was shrouded in fog, bringing transportation systems (especially air travel) to a virtual standstill throughout the country.
As reported by the BBC in this article from October, 2002, "German scientists have found a significant piece of evidence linking cosmic rays to climate change. They have detected charged particle clusters in the lower atmosphere that were probably caused by the space radiation. They say the clusters can lead to the condensed nuclei which form into dense clouds."
