I received a link to the USGS Web-site over the weekend and I’ve posted the link to it at the end of my BLOG. As with all the information that I receive I try to check it out. There’s a lot of junk on the Internet and sometimes it’s difficult to get to the truth. The first thing I did was to contact Don at the USGS – United States Geological Survey. I asked him if the report of a 4.6 earthquake that happened in Iran, on February 11th, was a real event. He looked it up and sure enough it was there in his data base. I then asked him if there was anything in the report that would indicate an underground nuclear test. Don informed me that there is a big discrepancy between the wave forms of an earthquake and a nuclear explosion. I pressed him on this point, asking him to please take a look at the wave forms and makes sure nothing was overlooked. There was a moment of silence on the phone and then he came back on the line and stated that this quake was like the other 200,00o that he had seen in his career. Now there’s always the possibility that the numbers or data could have been fudged. I asked him if this could have happened and he assured me that it couldn’t have happened as the data came directly from hundreds seismic machines all over the world, via the Internet and other sources, so there’s no handling of the information. Everyone gets the same data. So what I believe we have a coincidence. On February 11th there was a 4.6 earthquake in western Iran – nothing more. This is the stuff that conspiracy legends are made of! Since I had Don on the phone I also inquired about the recent Haiti quake asking why the Dominican Republic wasn’t effected like Haiti was. Don walked me through the data, telling me how the possibility for sever damage is exponentially greater the closer you get to the epicenter. So from Don’s point of view there’s no government conspiracy i.e. the use HAARP technology to create the quake. The epicenter was located in Port -a-Prince. I can assure you that Don is a astute scientist, and what he reported to me was level-headed and sincere. So the bottom line for me is this. While I do believe we are going to see a conflict in the Middle East, the earthquake in Iran was not an underground nuke test, it was an earthquake. However, this doesn’t mitigate the tension that is building there. In other news today, Netanyahu’s Russian visit was not what he hoped for as the Russians are going to sell missiles to the Iranians in spite of Netanyahu’s appeal. These missiles have the capacity to hit Israeli cities and that is an “earthquake” that is perhaps more devastating…..
