- Sixteen tons and what you get is a nuclear catastrophe. The explosions that rocked the Fukushima No.1 nuclear plant were more powerful than the combustion of hydrogen gas, as claimed by the Tokyo Electric Power Company. The actual cause of the blasts, according to intelligence sources in Washington, was nuclear fission of. warhead cores illegally taken from America’s sole Read More…
Experts are looking for a reason behind Tuesday afternoon’s unlikely 5.8 magnitude earthquake that shook people up and down the East Coast, and some are saying that a recent rise in fracking could be the culprit.
Hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” is the man-made splintering of underground rocks to expedite the exploiting of natural resources. It’s become a widespread phenomenon since its introduction in 2004, and though the practice can help increase supplies of oil and gas without reaching out internationally for imports, the result it can have on the geological make-up of the Earth can be ravaging. Now some experts say the rise in fracking could be to blame for yesterday’s quake.
The odds of a quake exceeding a magnitude of 5.5 occurring in central Virginia are so slim that Dominion Power determined only around six quakes of that size would occur in the area over the next 10,000 years. Dominion was looking at building a third nuclear reactor at their power plant in North Anna, VA, where facilities had to be taken offline yesterday as a result of the quake. Despite predicting that the site would be scarcely affected ever by a tremor, the quake’s epicenter was only mere miles from the nuclear facility.
Dominion, which confirmed in February that it will be building a third reactor for the plant, was rated by the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission as the seventh most-likely site to receive damage from a quake, taking into consideration the 100-plus plants from coast-to-coast. Even still, the plant had its earthquake-sensing seismographs removed in the 1990s in order to save money.
When sites are subjected to fracking, waste salt water is injected back into the earth once fractures are created; in some cases, as many as 3 million gallons of the waste can be put into the earth in each well. Though earthquakes out east are unlikely, Braxton County West Virginia, only 160 miles from the epicenter of Tuesday’s tremor, has seen eight minor movements in 2010 alone. That site has also seen a slew of fracking operations in the several years before it.
Explicitly, the United States Geological Survey has published a finding confirming that processes like fracking can be to blame for “natural” disasters. “Earthquakes induced by human activity have been documented in a few locations in the United States, Japan and Canada,” writes the USGS. “The cause was injection of fluids into deep wells for waste disposal and secondary recovery of oil and the use of reservoirs for water supplies.”
Out West, geologists have blamed fracking on earthquakes that unexpectedly shook up the state of Arkansas, which recently saw over 20 small tremors in a single day. Freak earthquakes have also occurred in regions of Texas, New York and Oklahoma that should not be likely sites of epicenters, though those locales have all seen a rise in fracking in recent years.
Multi-stage fracking, which can drill several miles deep in the Earth, has only become prevalent in recent years. Once introduced, however, Arkansas, West Virginia and Texas all saw an unexpected increase in quakes across the region. The correlation has caused concern in other parts of the country, including West Virginia, where residents are asking lawmakers to reconsider the legality of fracking, which can not only cause earthquakes but is overall detrimental to the local ecosystem. One incident in central Virginia occurred in 2008 when fracking caused an explosion of a natural gas pipeline that created a fireball that stretched up to half a mile long and tall and injured five people.
Mineral, VA, the site of Tuesday’s quake’s epicenter, is only 90 miles from the West Virginia border, where activists are rallying to change the lax state legislation which has caused companies to conduct fracking operations more and more and recent years.
The vast intercontinental military tunnel complex constructed by the United States Air force over the past nearly 45 years was hit with two powerful nuclear explosions at its main terminuses in Colorado and Virginia used nearly exclusively by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
According to this report, this unprecedented nuclear attack began on the evening of 22 August when one of the main air pressure relief tunnels for this CIA tunnel, located at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa Florida, was forced open allowing millions of cubic feet of air to rush suddenly into the atmosphere. The unique sound of this event was captured by video during a baseball game being played at Tropicana Field near MacDill, though US officials blamed the “mystery noise” on a faulty sound system.
This GRU report, however, points out that Russian engineers are well acquainted with this unique sound as they work feverishly to prepare an additional 5,000 bomb shelters ordered by Prime Minister Putin this past spring to be completed by the end of 2012.
Russian engineers were, also, able to duplicate this unique sound this past March when they were called into the Ukraine to vent a number of deep underground tunnels from poison gas that had killed three people near Kiev and which was, likewise, captured by video.
Within a few hours of the venting of this vast tunnel complex, this report continues, a nuclear device was detonated at its western terminus located near Trinidad Colorado with the second blast occurring nearly 12 hours later at the eastern terminus near Culpeper Virginia, and both causing powerful earthquakes felt by tens of millions of Americans.
Unbeknownst to the vast majority of the American people is that the vast military tunnel network constructed since the early 1960’s under their country has cost an estimated $40 trillion and with the exception of this attack shows no sign of abating.
The only known photo of one of the massive US Air Force boring machines used to construct this vast tunnel complex was taken by Little Skull Mountain in Nevada in December 1982 and is similar in design to those used to construct the Chunnel between England and France.
Maps of these tunnels, and the underground bases associated with them, have been compiled over the years by many independent researchers along with lists of their probable locations.
The specific tunnel attacked by these nuclear devices, this GRU report says, was being used by the CIA during their moving of their headquarters and all of their assets out of their Langley Virginia location to their new base located in Denver Colorado that was begun in 2005 for reasons still not fully explained.
The GRU speculates that the timing of this attack in hitting the western terminus first, then the eastern one, was more than likely meant to “trap and destroy” whatever the CIA was currently moving through this tunnel from Langley to Denver.
Most interesting to note is that this attack comes nearly a decade to the day after the 11 September 2011 internal war between the CIA and the US military establishment that rained destruction upon America, and then the world, but whose final battle has yet to be fought, or won, by either side.
To what the final outcome of this titanic struggle will be it is not in our knowing, other than to note that when two powerful forces like these collide, and as they have done so many times in the past, the ultimate losers end up being the American people whose delight in total ignorance as to what is happening around them continues to astound the whole world.
Pakistan is possibly supplementing or replacing its current uranium-based nuclear weapons arsenal with plutonium-based,weapons that are more destructive and easily deliverable.Pakistan is rapidly adding to its nuclear arsenal.Outside Pakistan, observers wondered if the nuclear arsenal was secure from potential terrorist theft; inside Pakistan, observers wondered whether the arsenal was safe from a possible US or Indian incursion.
Pakistan is in the process of building two new plutonium production reactors and a new reprocessing facility to
fabricate more nuclear weapons fuel, wrote nuclear experts.
Pak nuclear stockpile to touch 200 in a decadeHans M Kristensen and Robert S Norris in the issue of Bulletin of Atomic Scientists.”It is also developing new delivery systems. Enhancements to Pakistan’s nuclear forces include a new nuclear capable medium-range ballistic missile, the development of two new nuclear-capable short-rangeballistic missiles, and the development of two new nuclear-capable cruise missiles,” they wrote.
India got heavy water and reprocessing plants in 1960s. And by 1965, intelligence estimates concluded India could go nuclear in a few years, which it did by exploding its first test in 1974. . The retired brigadier, who has been closely associated with Pakistan’ Strategic Plans Division, recalled that the Indian nuclear explosions in May 1998 at Pokhran forced Pakistan to test its own devices, leading to nuclearization of South Asia.Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was determined to deny rival India a nuclear monopoly. In 1965, the future prime minister said: “If India builds the bomb, we will eat grass or leaves, even go hungry.” In 1972 he gave the go-ahead to a nuclear programme. Today, Pakistan is estimated to have 80 to 100 weapons.
New Threats To Pakistan’s Nuclear PolicyThere are new pressures on
Pakistan to limit its ability to maintain a credible nuclear deterrence. These pressures are coming from the Conference on Disarmament, or CD as it is known, that opens today in Geneva. The United States is working on two tracks. One is to induct India into the Nuclear Suppliers Group and end the last barrier that stops India from procuring nuclear technology and material in the open market. And two, use international treaties to force Pakistan to freeze Pakistani nukes at their current size and potential.
While US officials use public diplomacy to send messages through Radio Pakistan and other arms of the pro-US government in Islamabad claiming Washington has no interest in targeting the Pakistani nuclear program, US actions speak louder about the actual US policy toward Pakistan’s strategic capabilities.
The Pakistani government is maintaining a strange silence on the new pressures on its nuclear capabilities. Other departments of the government that shape Pakistan’s nuclear policy, like the Nuclear Command Authority, are also silent apparently in deference to the incumbent government.
To break this silence, a Pakistani nuclear expert Dr. Shireen Mazari took the initiative to sensitize the Pakistani media about the new developments in Geneva. She organized a one-day closed-door briefing for senior Pakistani journalists. Over eight hours, participants were briefed about the new pressures on Pakistani diplomacy on the country’s nuclear program. The workshop covered Pakistan’s position on a new treaty, called FMCT, that would stop Islamabad from developing material needed to build nuclear weapons, a treaty that Islamabad is resisting for the time being. Participants also went through the evidence-based record of India in nuclear proliferation which belies Washington’s claims that India has a clean proliferation record.But Dr. Mazari is not alone. Ambassador Zamir Akram has told CD that Pakistan does not accept the US-led tilt in favor of India on nuclear technology.
US ‘wants to guard Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal
Pakistan’s military has angrily insisted that its nuclear weapons arsenal is safely protected and denounced claims that it is secretly negotiating with the United States to allow teams of American specialists to provide added security in the event of a crisis.
The Washington Post published revelations Wednesday, attributed to me, that top-level North Korean officials bribed Pakistani military officials with over $3 million in exchange for the nuclear technology.
A stunning report from the G8 Summit states that President Medvedev has been told that the American regime leader Barack Obama intends to unleash a “summer war” on Saudi Arabia to capture their oil fields and has ordered thousands more US Troops to the region to launch it. The Washington Post that suggested Riyadh was ready to go it alone because the United States had become an “unreliable partner.”
Saudi Arabia to split from Washington on some issues while questioning its longstanding reliance on the United States to protect its interests.
According to this report, Obama this past week ordered
his Defense Department to “pre-position” over 7,170 combat-hardened US Soldiers in southern Iraq to prepare for the invasion of Saudi Arabia in a blatant disregard of the American pledge to withdrawal all of their by January 2012.
So enraged were the Iraqi people when hearing of Obama’s betrayal that tens-of-thousands of them began a mass protest demanding the Americans leave, but was met with US commander Major General Jeffrey Buchanan slamming the protest march by calling this peaceful
protest “an affront to Iraq’s democracy.”
Even worse for the US, this report continues, was the powerful Iraqi cleric and militia leader Moqtada al-Sadr threatening to unleash his forces upon the Americans unless they begin leaving his country as soon as practical, but which with Obama’s planned new war against Saudi Arabia is now not going to happen.
Unnerving Obama, this report says, is the new Arab Alliance the Saudi’s are creating to make war against Iran, and which includes the largest Muslim nation in the world Indonesia, and America’s newest enemy Pakistan.
The new Arab Alliance, all Sunni Muslim ruled nations, being created by Saudi Arabia through their Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) launched their first attack against their Persian Shiite foes in Bahrain where Saudi and Pakistani troops unleashed one of the most brutal crackdowns ever seen in a region used to such actions, even to include the mass destruction of holy sites.
Saudi Arabia’s anger at Obama stems from the Americans refusal to support the deposed Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak who now languishes in prison with his two sons under threat of death by firing squad for his ordering the killing of unarmed protesters.
As we have reported on many times,the Americas have vowed to protect Iran ‘at all costs’ and since 2001 have fought two wars to defeat the Persian Shiite’s nations most feared opponents, the Bathist led Iraq and Taliban led Afghanistan.
Obama’s main strategy, this report continues, is to secure all of the Middle East’s vast oil reserves of which Saudi Arabia has the most of, but which are now threatened should the Saudi’s succeed in launching an attack on Iran with their GCC allies which would turn the whole Gulf region into an infernal of ‘unimaginable proportions’ and plunge the entire world into an economic depression the likes of which have never been seen.
Fueling Obama’s fears even more, this report further says, are that Pakistan’s nuclear weapons would be used in this conflict, and which the Americans have now lost their ability to monitor after being ordered out of the country as tensions between these two former allies escalate by the day.
Worse still for the Americans was the dashing of their hopes this past week for Brazil’s oil reserves (the largest oil find in three decades) after new estimates lowered this ‘black gold’ from over 15 billion barrels to as little few as 4.5 billion. Though the US has tried to secure a part of Brazil’s vast oil reserves through a $2 billion loan-guarantee, the Brazilians, to date, have not taken advantage it.
Important to note about Brazil, and as we had reported on in our report “World Begins Effort To Collapse US Dollar As Brazil Begins Nuclear Production And Ejects UN Inspectors”, is that because of its nuclear weapons the Americans can’t take their oil reserves by force as they have through their wars against Muslim nations.
To the American peoples ability to stop Obama’s new war against Saudi Arabia there appears to be no hope especially after his refusal yesterday to allow a truce in the illegal Libyan war he started over two months ago by lying to his own citizens saying it would only last “days, not weeks.”
Most ominous, for the American people at least, in this report further warning that the parallels between the United States today, and Nazi Germany of last century are becoming too similar to ignore, especially when viewed in the light that both of these nations wars were started because they lacked the oil resources to sustain their global economic and military might.
Evidence that America is fast falling into fascist tyranny could, literally, fill hundreds of volumes, and made even worse this after Obama followed Bush in allowing the unlimited powers of surveillance of US citizens and ordered his government lawyers to review all prayers said at the burial of US war veterans to make sure the name of Jesus was removed.
Perhaps even worse was the Obama regime this past week unveiling their plan to spend over $500 million on a programme designed to make 5-year-old children ‘sit still’ in kindergarten in blind obedience to their ‘masters’, a move eerily similar to Nazi Germany’s creation of the Hitler Youth designed to accomplish the same goal.
To what the Obama regime is doing to the American peasant class is even worse as new reports show them failing to stop the dispensing of a popular stop-smoking drug called Chantix that has resulted in hundreds of suicides psychotic reactions or stopping the ingestion into food and drink the dangerous chemical Aspartame that scientists warn is the cause of thousands of premature births and cancer deaths.
To the worse horrors to come, the American people remain blissfully ignorant, but one has no doubt that when these deluded people see that their “American Dream” is, in fact, an “American Nightmare”, the facing of their “new reality” will be more than they can bear. May God have mercy on them all.

In a telephone interview yesterday, Taliban spokesman Mullah Ehsanullah Ehsan rejected repeated concerns that his movement was a threat to Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal, saying they had no intention of attacking the weapons.The concerns are long-standing among US officials, and have only grown in the wake of the ease with which a handful of insurgents infiltrated the Karachi naval base. The US has suggested repeatedly that they were prepared to move against Pakistan’s arsenal to prevent it from being targeted by insurgents.
NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said he was confident that Pakistan’s nuclear weapons were safe; but in the same breath he remarked it was a matter of concern in the wake of the worst assault on Pakistan Navy’s airbase. There is inherent contradiction in NATO chief’s statement, because when he admits Pakistan’s nuclear weapons are safe and well-protected there is no reason or ground for expressing concern about them. What NATO chief has said is in fact reflective of a clearly-defined US policy, which is articulated by US Generals, think tanks, former members of US administration to prove that Pakistan government and the army cannot control the militants and terrorists who could lay their hands on nukes, which will be dangerous for the region and the world at large.
US raid that killed Osama bin Laden under its nose, the Pakistan army might be tempted to ratchet up hostility towards India and even encourage the terror proxies it controls to stage strikes on the Indian mainland, the Indian security establishment feels.
There is a view that the Pakistan military may look to recover lost prestige by diverting popular attention towards India and army chief Ashfaq Kiyani’s aggressive response to Indian Army chief V K Singh’s claim that India could stage an Abbottabad-type operation indicates as much. In a statement, the Pakistan army said it would respond strongly to any Indian “misadventure.”
It serves the Pakistan army’s purpose to feed popular paranoia about India and the possibility of Islamabad’s “nuclear jewels” being under threat. A flare up of regional tensions can help turn the spotlight from its failures at a time when US law makers are asking why another dollar should be paid to an ally who might have harboured Osama.
Keeping in mind the unsettled state of affairs in Pakistan with analysts agreeing that India would top the list of Pakistan army and ISI targets, the Indian security establishment is being doubly cautious to ensure that it does not provide any excuse for Pakistan to seize on to up tensions.
The present position of the Pakistan army, the country’s most powerful institution, also rules out possibility of an immediate military coup. As recently as 10 days ago, an assessment here spoke of the growing restlessness in the Pakistan army top brass with the political leadership. There were also inputs indicating ISI chief Lt Gen Ahmad Shuja Pasha may have written directly to prime minister Yousuf Gilani expressing displeasure over some politicians for criticising ISI. “A coup is extremely unlikely in the present situation,” a senior official said.

Pakistan Army firmly believes that Washington’s real aim in Pakistan is to neutralize the nation’s prized nuclear arsenal, which is now on a path to becoming the world’s fifth largest, said the Pakistani official closely involved in the decision on reducing the American presence.
Former CIA officials say the ISI believes many of the agency’s operatives on the ground are gathering information about Pakistan’s nuclear program and trying to infiltrate the ISI, not just fighting terrorism.
In all, about 335 American personnel — C.I.A. officers and contractors and Special Operations forces — were being asked to leave the country,
said a Pakistani official closely involved in the decision.In an illustration of the severity of the breach between the CIA and the ISI, two intelligence agencies that were supposed to have been cooperating since the Sept. 11 attack in the United States but that have rarely trusted each other, the Pakistani official said: “We’re telling the Americans: ‘You have to trust the ISI or you don’t. There is nothing in between.’” Pakistan’s ISI chief Lt General Ahmed Shuja Pasha held an important meeting with the CIA chief on Monday but apparently cut short his visit and was leaving the US capital on Monday night.
The scale of the Pakistani demands emerged as Lt. Gen. Ahmed Shuja Pasha, the head of Pakistan’s chief spy agency, the Inter-Services Intelligence Directorate, or the ISI, arrived in Washington on Monday for nearly four hours of meetings with the C.I.A. director, Leon E. Panetta, and Adm. Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Those ties plunged to a new low as a result of the Davis episode, which has further exposed the divergence in Pakistani and American interests as the endgame in Afghanistan draws closer.An American official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said without elaborating that the Pakistanis had asked “for more visibility into some things” — presumably the nature of C.I.A. covert operations in the country — “and that request is being talked about.”

Germany has pulled out of NATO operations due to disagreements over the mission in Libya. To add to that, Germany did the unthinkable: it voted in favor of a UN Security Council resolution calling the Israeli settlements in occupied Palestinian territory illegal and demanding the immediate halt of all settlement activity. Then, Ms Merkel did something very strange: she ordered the shutdown of Germany’s nuclear reactors.
Curiously, the Japanese, too, have now openly sided with the Palestinians — and they have now have serious
problems with runaway nukes. Coincidence? Perhaps. But consider this: The same Israeli company providing ‘security’ to Japan’s reactors is the one that’s also responsible for the nukes in Germany. Reckon that had something to do with why Merkel hurriedly ordered the shut down of German reactors? What does she know? Was Israel’s Stuxnet virus responsible — intentionally or not — for the Japanese meltdown? Was it unleashed on the Japanese as a warning (albeit one that got out of control) not to mess with God’s chosen people? Is this what Merkel fears could happen in Germany?
Think that’s farfetched? Not when you consider that just yesterday, BOTH engines of Merkel’s immaculately maintained Puma chopper suffered simultaneous flameouts. Is Ms Merkel now suddenly waking up to the fact that the Israelis are stark raving mad and will stop at nothing to get what they want?
I’m inclined to believe Ms Merkel now takes very seriously the words of noted Israeli military historian Martin van Creveld when he openly boasted in an interview last year about Israel’s military capabilities, “We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets for our air force…. We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that that will happen before Israel goes under.”
And van Creveld isn’t exactly chopped liver — he’s lectured at the American Army War College. Replying to a question whether Israel does not have fears of being classified as a criminal state if it expelled Palestinians, van Creveld said, “Israel is a state that does not care about what others say about it and you must remember the saying of former defense minister Moshe Dayan when he said that ‘Israel must always act as a wild dog because it should be dangerous in the eyes of others, rather than be harmed.’”
