Claims: Iran “Earthquake” Was Actually Covert Nuclear Detonation

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on November 14, 2017

Very serious allegations are beginning to surface from the Middle East, that the massive, Magnitude 7.3 “earthquake” which struck northwestern Iran earlier today was actually a covert NUCLEAR BOMB TEST. The allegations are based – right now – on two not-so-coincidental public message postings made to a well known message forum run by and frequented by Intelligence Community operatives worldwide, which warned folks as follows:

“The Fuse is lit … whitin (SIC) 8 hours …more i can not say , you will all see it yourselves .. on tv , mass media , and all other channels will only be talking about this … within hours…

World… be prepared… for the shock.

That posting, made via an anonymous proxy server located in Belgium at 5:56 AM eastern US time today.

About 8 hours later – almost to the minute, a Magnitude 7.3 “earthquake” rocked northwestern Iran.

Several minutes after the “earthquake” struck, the same entity, again posting via an anonymous proxy in Belgium, posted several other curious items:

the shock is the beginning …from now on , its gonna come from airspace…

and then:

its not over yet … this is just the beginning and some things might not be what the media says…the rest will come and follow from the sky …

Obviously an earthquake cannot “come from the sky” but a nuke can! Based upon the fact that recent North Korean nuclear tests have been recorded as “earthquakes” people on the message forum began putting two-and-two together.

These postings, having piqued the curiosity of many, were finally followed up with this:

was it really an earthquake ? 😉

last hint … but what side, country did it … is for you to find out …now i’m really gone …

[link to www.iransara.info]

The link above is to an Internet article, from the year 2012, which talks about “covert nuclear test detonations in Iran.”

We’ve Got a Problem

Thus, someone using a proxy server in Belgium, gave 8 hours advance warning of a “shock” the world would be talking about. As promised, 8 hours later a “Magnitude 7.3 earthquake” struck northwestern Iran and the original poster followed-up and said “the rest will follow from the sky” and posted a link to a 2012 web site article about covert Nuclear Detonations in Iran.

There is no way to forecast an earthquake . . . . certainly not to within 8 hours. So what we have here is someone is hinting in a not-so-subtle way that today’s “earthquake” was actually a nuclear detonation . . . and they knew it would take place 8 hours before it actually happened.

INTEL

I reached out to my former colleagues in the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force and “other” agencies and made inquiries. All I could find out was that elements of the US military had been “tasked” to travel toward what would be “downwind” of the “earthquake” location, with radiation monitoring gear. I was not told if any results were obtained.

Elements of the US Navy, patrolling the Persian Gulf, have also been tasked with deploying radiation sensor gear. This was done because, according to US GEOS-5 Weather Satellite, the wind direction from that part of Iran is such that the air is moving between the mountain ranges south to the Persian Gulf. Here’s a screen shot of the GEOS-5 weather satellite for that region:

I was a bit taken aback by the admission that US military elements had been “tasked” to check for radiation. No one does that if an earthquake is legitimate. So the fact that US military elements were even SENT to look-and-see, is telling, in and of itself!

The topography of the “earthquake region” is such that if a nuke test were undertaken in this area, mountains on both sides of the test area would contain any radioactive fallout. Here’s a map to show you the layout, with the exact location of the “earthquake” pinned:

Who is sending a message to whom?

Is Iran telling the world it now has nuclear weapons? Or are they telling Saudi Arabia and Israel (who have, within the past week, “teamed-up” to confront Iranian activities in Syria and Yemen) that they have such weapons and to back off?

Did Iran perform a test for their pals in North Korea . . . as a slap in the face to both US President Donald Trump during his Asia visits AND to Beijing?

Is Saudi Arabia sending a message to Iran – to back off out of Syria and Yemen or face Saudi Nuclear Weapons? The Saudi’s have, after all, deployed dozens of F-15 fighter jets to Cyprus in an apparent effort to begin attacking Iranian-backed Lebanon.

Is Israel telling Iran to back off in Lebanon or face Israeli nukes?

The Middle East is clearly on a knife’s edge and this time, if it “goes” the world will likely recoil in horror. We, in the US, would obviously be dragged-into such a conflict, almost immediately.

The Hostage Air Base – And Its Hydrogen Bombs

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on July 20, 2016

CBRN-Ex-IncirlikThe United States runs its air operations against ISIS in Iraq from Incirlik Air Base in Turkey. The base, used by other NATO forces as well, is not American. It is Turkish, and the U.S. needs government permission to fly from there. Since the 15 July coup attempt in Ankara, U.S. forces at Incirlik are essentially hostages to the Turkish government. The Turkish base commander and his aides have been arrested; U.S. personnel are confined to base; outside power has been cut off; and while the U.S. has been permitted to resume operations over Iraq and Syria, it is working under adverse conditions, to say the least. Most worrisome, about 50 hydrogen bombs are stored by the U.S. at Incirlik, ostensibly on behalf of NATO. These bombs are “protected” by Turkish troops and to some degree their potential use is shared with the Turkish Air Force.

The deployment goes back more than 50 years, begun as an effort to counter the Soviet military buildup as an offset to quantitatively larger Soviet ground forces facing Europe. But by the mid-1980s the U.S. put more emphasis on “tactical” missiles, largely to counter the Soviet Union’s deployment of SS-20’s, a short to medium range missile with multiple, independently targeted warheads (MIRV) in the second and third versions of the SS-20. In 1987 the Intermediate and Short-range Missile Nuclear Treaty (INF) was signed and the Russians and the U.S. began removing their missiles. By 1991, all the missiles of concern on both sides were eliminated.

With the collapse of the Soviet Union and the expansion of NATO, one can ask why tactical nuclear weapons in NATO were retained as times and conditions have changed. The U.S. now finds itself escalating operations out of Incirlik as it increases the fight against ISIS, al Nusra, and al Qaeda. Turkey itself is increasingly authoritarian and increasingly involved in the wars in Syria and Iraq as well as fighting Kurdish separatists. But only late in 2015 did Incirlik see the beginning of security upgrades for its nuclear stockpile.

Why didn’t we just take them out?

2016-07-20_110736Incirlik nuclear weapons are unlikely to be used against Russia. The missiles need to be delivered by aircraft that can penetrate Russian air defenses — which have been steadily improved. Newer Russian systems such as the S-300, S-400, and the soon to come S-500 raise a host of new challenges. As U.S. Air Force Chief of Staff Mark Welch and LTG Herbert “Hawk” Carlisle, Chief of the Air Combat Command, have testified, there are ten or more — and there will be more — “integrated air defense systems in the world that you would have a difficult time operating in or around in aircraft.” They didn’t specifically mention Russia, but it can be assumed they meant U.S. Air Force conventional bombers would have a hard time with Russia’s air defenses and newest radars. In a real conflict, it can be assumed that more likely than a U.S. strike on Russian nuclear weapons depots is a Russian strike on nuclear storage depots like Incirlik.

Furthermore, the old Soviet threat scenario no longer exists. While Russia is aggressive, especially around its perimeter, today’s problem is qualitatively different from that posed by an organized Soviet attack on the Fulda Gap. The Russian army and navy are no longer of the size or capability to launch a real challenge to NATO — even in NATO’s current less-than-optimal state. While it could technically pick off some weak sisters like Estonia or Lithuania, such aggression could precipitate painful Western countermeasures. NATO could challenge Russia’s Baltic and Black Sea fleets; it could attack Crimea; it could launch cross-border attacks to take out Russian military threats to NATO members. NATO could do a number of things, or nothing, but this is not an environment in which nuclear weapons would be useful.

It should be noted that the weapons kept in Turkey are each about ten times more powerful than the atomic bombs that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki. They should not be considered “tactical” at all. These are WMD — that is, weapons of mass destruction. Keeping them in harm’s way is an act of political irresponsibility.

2016-07-20_154719

And then there is the problem of Turkey. Increasingly radicalized, if Turkey were to acquire the weapons for itself — say by expelling U.S. and NATO forces from Incirlik — it would not only have the weapons, but the means to deliver them. Turkey has F-16s and nuclear-capable F-4 Phantom jets. A nuclear Turkey would become a significant threat in the Middle East in a multitude of directions (i.e., against Greece/Cyprus, against Israel, against Russia, against Iran). It would absolutely cause Iran to mount nukes on missiles (which it could quickly acquire from North Korea if not locally produced). A nuclear Turkey is immense threat to involve NATO in a conflict with no clear or positive outcome.

Finally, there is always the possibility of terrorists getting nuclear bombs. Under current political conditions, with the Turkish general staff and military decimated, the time is ripe for an external attack on Incirlik. The acquisition of a potentially usable nuclear weapon by terrorists is the worst nightmare of all.

It would be optimal to ship the weapons out of Turkey, but if that is not possible, there is a lesson from history. After the Turkish invasion of Cyprus, the U.S. physically disabled the nuclear weapons under its control. In any case, a rescue team should be positioned in the area, ready to intervene if necessary. For the U.S. to continue operating in a business-as-usual mode, but under hostage-like conditions, is extraordinarily risky.

Does Erdogan of Turkey Intend to Confiscate The ‘Incirlik’ Nuclear Weapons?

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on July 18, 2016

The next 9/11′ coming from Syria / Turkey?

My Note: Westerners seem to be far more concerned with catching demonic digital creatures, aka Pokemon – millions of social-engineered folks running round catching these demons — than they are with their own safety. Last Friday, the infamous 28 pages that showed the 9-11 hijackers had support from the Saudi government were finally released, although many parts are still redacted. The “28-pages” report, that no one is talking about, proves that the United States knew their ally aided and carried out 9-11 yet chose to cover it up. As Americans deliberately remain ignorant to the fact that the US covered up the Saudi role in 9-11, another Islamic terror attack was carried out in France – and Turkey underwent an orchestrated military coup on the very same day.

Sibel Edmonds tied the Turkish American Council to the 9/11 attack, money laundering, drug trafficking, ISIS, and more! John McCain, H.W. Bush, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are all heavily tied to the terrorist operation known as the Turkish American Council! All this some coincidence?

All the above astonishing events were almost simultaneously staged on the 16th of July, 2016. Saudi Barbaria agent Erdogan the Antichrist prearranged one false flag attack after another, like the Istanbul airport bomb attacks. Erdogan the Antichrist rises, rises and rises – since the Islamic Ramadan begun on 6/6/2016.

When we look at the reference to 666 is gematria, a code that assigns a number to each letter in the alphabet. The first attested use of gematria occurs in an inscription of Assyrian ruler Sargon II (727-707 BC) stating that the king built the wall of Khorsabad 16,283 cubits long to correspond with the numerical value of his name.

Interestingly, the number of the Turkish President’s name using English Gematria equals 666:

Gematria6This is not just a coincidence, as there are no other current world leaders that have their given names equal 666.

The H-Bombs in Turkey

ErdoBomb

Among the many questions still unanswered following Friday’s coup attempt in Turkey is one that has national-security implications for the United States and for the rest of the world: How secure are the American hydrogen bombs stored at a Turkish airbase?

The Incirlik Airbase, in southeast Turkey, houses NATO’s largest nuclear-weapons storage facility. On Saturday morning, the American Embassy in Ankara issued an “Emergency Message for U.S. Citizens,” warning that power had been cut to Incirlik and that “local authorities are denying movements on to and off of” the base. Incirlik was forced to rely on backup generators; U.S. Air Force planes stationed there were prohibited from taking off or landing; and the security-threat level was raised to FPCON Delta, the highest state of alert, declared when a terrorist attack has occurred or may be imminent. On Sunday, the base commander, General Bekir Ercan Van, and nine other Turkish officers at Incirlik were detained for allegedly supporting the coup. As of this writing, American flights have resumed at the base, but the power is still cut off.

According to Hans M. Kristensen, the director of the Nuclear Information Project at the Federation of American Scientists, underground vaults at Incirlik hold about fifty B-61 hydrogen bombs—more than twenty-five per cent of the nuclear weapons in the NATO stockpile. The nuclear yield of the B-61 can be adjusted to suit a particular mission. The bomb that destroyed Hiroshima had an explosive force equivalent to about fifteen kilotons of TNT. In comparison, the “dial-a-yield” of the B-61 bombs at Incirlik can be adjusted from 0.3 kilotons to as many as a hundred and seventy kilotons.

Incirlik was built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in the wake of the Second World War; when Turkey joined NATO, in 1952, it became a crucial American base during the Cold War. With a flight time of about an hour to the Soviet Union, the base hosted American fighters, bombers, tankers, and U-2 spy planes. And, like many NATO bases, it stored American nuclear weapons. NATO strategy was dependent on nuclear weapons as a counterbalance to the perceived superiority of Soviet conventional forces. The threat of a nuclear attack, it was assumed, would deter Soviet tanks from rolling into NATO territory. And granting NATO countries access to nuclear weapons would strengthen the alliance, providing tangible evidence that the United States would risk a nuclear war for NATO’s defense.

By the mid-nineteen-sixties, more than seven thousand American nuclear weapons were deployed in Western Europe, Greece, and Turkey. They came in all sizes, shapes, and yields: nuclear warheads, bombs, land mines, depth charges, artillery shells, even small nuclear projectiles that could be fired from a recoilless rifle. The weapons were technically in the custody of U.S. officers, ready to be handed over for use in wartime by NATO personnel. But custody of the weapons was not the same as control of them. A delegation of U.S. senators visiting Europe in 1960 was shocked to find hydrogen bombs loaded onto German planes that were on alert and crewed by German pilots; thermonuclear warheads atop missiles manned by Italian crews; nuclear weapons guarded and transported by “non-Americans with non-American vehicles.” The theft or use of these weapons by NATO allies became a grave concern. “The prime loyalty of the guards, of course, is to their own nation, and not to the U.S.,” the Senate delegation warned in a classified report.

Two years later, during the Cuban Missile Crisis, Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara worried that Turkish officers might try to fire some of NATO’s nuclear missiles at the Soviet Union without permission—and ordered American custodians to sabotage the missiles, somehow, if anyone tried to launch them. Coded switches were subsequently placed inside NATO’s hydrogen bombs. These switches, known as Permissive Action Links (PALs), were designed to hinder unauthorized use of the weapons; the bombs wouldn’t detonate if the operator didn’t enter the right code. But PALs could be circumvented by someone with the proper technical skills. When two NATO allies, Greece and Turkey, were on the cusp of war in 1974, the United States secretly removed all of NATO’s nuclear weapons from Greece and cut the arming wires of every nuclear weapon stored in Turkey, rendering them inoperable.

Thanks largely to stockpile reductions during the Administrations of President George H. W. Bush and President George W. Bush, the United States now has about a hundred and eighty nuclear weapons deployed with NATO, all of them B-61 bombs. In addition to Incirlik, the weapons are stored at bases in Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Italy. Today, the symbolism of these bombs is far more important than their military utility; missiles carrying nuclear warheads reach targets much faster, more reliably, and with much greater accuracy. The advocates of retaining nuclear weapons in NATO argue that the B-61 bombs demonstrate America’s enduring commitment to the alliance, intimidate Russia, and discourage NATO members from developing their own hydrogen bombs. Opponents of the weapons, like Frank-Walter Steinmeier, the German foreign minister, consider them “absolutely senseless”—and an inviting target for terrorists.

With a few hours and the right tools and training, you could open one of NATO’s nuclear-weapons storage vaults, remove a weapon, and bypass the PAL inside it. Within seconds, you could place an explosive device on top of a storage vault, destroy the weapon, and release a lethal radioactive cloud. NATO’s hydrogen bombs are still guarded by the troops of their host countries. In 2010, peace activists climbed over a fence at the Kleine Brogel Airbase, in Belgium, cut through a second fence, entered a hardened shelter containing nuclear-weapon vaults, placed anti-nuclear stickers on the walls, wandered the base for an hour, and posted a video of the intrusion on YouTube. The video showed that the Belgian soldier who finally confronted them was carrying an unloaded rifle.

Security concerns at Incirlik Airbase recently prompted a major upgrade of the perimeter fence that surrounds its nuclear-weapons storage area. Incirlik is about seventy miles from the Syrian border, and since last October American aircraft and drones based there have been attacking ISIS forces. Its proximity to rebel-controlled areas in Syria and the rash of terrorist acts in Turkey led the Pentagon, a few months ago, to issue an “ordered departure” of all the family members of American troops at Incirlik. They were asked to leave immediately. About two thousand U.S. military personnel remain stationed there. Although Incirlik probably has more nuclear weapons than any other NATO base, it does not have any American or Turkish aircraft equipped to deliver them. The bombs simply sit at the base, underground, waiting to be used or misused.

Explosive Planet: Saudis Kill and Get Nukes, Iran’s Allowed to Get Them, Angola Bans Islam

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on November 25, 2013

My Note: rumors are circulating in Saudi Arabia now that over 500 Ethiopian immigrants have been murdered by Saudi thugs in the past couple of days. Lord have Mercy!

Ethiopian Maids Exploited During UAE Ban

StopSlaveryA ban on Ethiopian domestic staff is being exploited by recruiters who are headhunting those already in the UAE and offering their services at four times the normal recruitment charges.

Addis Ababa banned its domestic workers from seeking work in the UAE in July last year until an agreement was reached to protect them from abusive recruiters and employers.

But the ban does not apply to those already employed, and has enabled some ruthless recruiters to further exploit them.

Typically, the recruiters will offer existing sponsors of Ethiopian domestic workers up to Dh3,000 for agreeing to transfer the visa of their maid.

They then offer the maids’ services to other employers for fees of up to Dh7,500, rather than the previous standard of Dh1,500.

But none of the extra money is passed on to the maids, some of whom earn as little as Dh700 a month.

While such actions are not illegal, critics say recruiters are exploiting the demand for Ethiopian maids, who have a reputation for being diligent and reliable.

Nora Salim was offered the opportunity to hire an Ethiopian maid by a recruiter seeking Dh8,000 in office fees.

The same maid would have cost Dh1,500 in office fees but now they cost at least Dh6,000 extra because recruitment offices are taking advantage of the ban,” Ms Salim said.

I told the office employee that this was a rip-off. I had an Ethiopian maid before and I know the process and the costs.

They claimed to me that the original sponsor was demanding that amount in return for giving away his maid.”

Aida Omar contacted a recruitment company to arrange the plane ticket for her maid, whose two-year contract had expired, and the company offered her Dh3,000 to transfer the visa.

The office employee started insisting that I bring my maid to her office, and said she would finalise her residency cancellation and provide me with the necessary papers to claim my deposit from the residency department,” Ms Omar said.

For two weeks, she received calls from the recruiter pestering her to bring the maid in.

When I stopped taking her calls, she said it to me bluntly: ‘I will pay you Dh3,000 if you give me the maid’,” Ms Omar said.

It’s hard to believe this is legal, but even if it is, charging others four times more than what was originally paid for the maid is like theft.”

The average monthly wage of an Ethiopian maid without experience is Dh700 (US $ 190) while those with experience earn up to Dh900.

Ethiopia wants Dh1,200 minimum wage for its citizens in the UAE

Saudi Nuclear Weapons ‘on order’ From Pakistan

Sapocalypse99audi Arabia has invested in Pakistani nuclear weapons projects, and believes it could obtain atomic bombs at will, a variety of sources have told BBC Newsnight.

While the kingdom’s quest has often been set in the context of countering Iran’s atomic programme, it is now possible that the Saudis might be able to deploy such devices more quickly than the Islamic republic.

Earlier this year, a senior Nato decision maker told me that he had seen intelligence reporting that nuclear weapons made in Pakistan on behalf of Saudi Arabia are now sitting ready for delivery.

Egypt, Saudi Arabia Start Joint Naval Drill

Egyptian and Saudi naval forces started Saturday a joint exercise codenamed “Morjan 14” with the participation of a number of Arab and African countries as observers.

Egypt’s state news agency (MENA) reported that the drill, which will last for several days, is held around the Red Sea Naval base.

The exercise activities include joint managing and executing day and night operations, detecting submarines and sea mines, fueling vessels during operation, intercepting enemy boats in cooperation with air forces.

The training aims to raise combat readiness and exchange experience in planning, implementing and controlling of different units in operation theater

Angola ‘Bans Islam’, Dismantles Mosques

swiss_ban_mosque_minaretsA number of news outlets have reported that Angola has “banned” Islam and started to dismantle mosques in a bold effort to stem the spread of Muslim extremism.

Weekly French-language Moroccan newspaper La Nouvelle Tribune published an article on Friday sourcing “several” Angolan officials, including the Southwest African nation’s minister of culture, Rosa Cruz, who reportedly offered the following remarks, which have been translated from French: “The process of legalization of Islam has not been approved by the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights, their mosques would be closed until further notice.”

The media reports have not described why exactly Islam apparently faces a need to be legalized despite its presence in the country for many years.

OnIslam.net reports that the African economic news agency Agence Ecofin wrote that Cruz made the statement at an appearance last week before the 6th Commission of the National Assembly. The website goes on to note that, “According to several Angolan newspapers, Angola has become the first country in the world to ban Islam and Muslims, taking first measures by destroying mosques in the country.”

Even Angola President José Eduardo dos Santos has weighed in on the controversy, as he was quoted in Nigeria’s Osun Defender newspaper on Sunday as saying, “This is the final end of Islamic influence in our country,” according to the OnIslam.net report.

The reported comments by Cruz and Santos echo the stance of the governor of the country’s Luanda province, Bento Francisco Bento, who reportedly maintains “that radical Muslims were not welcome in Angola and that the government was not ready to legalize the presence of mosques in the country,” according to a La Nouvelle Tribune summary of Bento’s take on the issue.
