Earthquake Strikes Crimea; Russian Troops Blame U.S. HAARP -Saying U.S. "Used a Weapon of Mass Destruction against Russian Military"
A significant earthquake has struck the Crimean peninsula in the Ukraine within the last hour and Russian military sources are claiming it was a deliberate attack by the United States using it's HAARP Array in Alaska, in retaliation for Russia placing troops into the Ukraine.
UPDATE: The earthquake is confirmed by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Center HERE
According to sources on the scene, Russian military surveillance detected INTENSE bursts of electromagnetic long-waves prior to the earthquake. They say the bursts were specifically timed and repetitive in nature, which caused a resonance in the ground, triggering the earthquake.
They claim this was a deliberate attack by the United States and are using frightening language to describe it. One spokesman said bluntly "The earthquake in Crimea was caused by the use of a weapon of mass destruction by the United States against the Russian Army."
The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) is a U.S. Department of Defense research program jointly funded by the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Navy, the University of Alaska, and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). Designed and built by BAE Advanced Technologies (BAEAT), its purpose was to analyze the ionosphere and investigate the potential for developing ionospheric enhancement technology for radio communications and surveillance. The HAARP program operates a major sub-arctic facility, named the HAARP Research Station, on an Air Force–owned site near Gakona, Alaska, aas shown in the image below.
The main instrument at HAARP Station is the Ionospheric Research Instrument (IRI). This is a high power, high-frequency phased array radio transmitter with a set of 180 antennas, disposed in an array of 12x15 units that occupy a rectangle of about 33 acres (13 hectares). The IRI is used to temporarily energize a small portion of the ionosphere.
The IRI is used to temporarily excite a limited area of the Ionosphere. Other instruments, such as a VHF and a UHF radar, a fluxgate magnetometer, a digisonde (an ionospheric sounding device), and an induction magnetometer, are used to study the physical processes that occur in the excited region.
The HAARP project directs a 3.6 MegaWatt signal, in the 2.8–10 MHz region of the HF (high-frequency) band, into the ionosphere. The signal may be pulsed or continuous. Then, effects of the transmission and any recovery period can be examined using associated instrumentation, including VHF and UHF radars, HF receivers, and optical cameras. According to the HAARP team, this will advance the study of basic natural processes that occur in the ionosphere under the natural but much stronger influence of solar interaction, and how the natural ionosphere affects radio signals. The antenna array necessary to accommodate this enormous power is shown in the close-up photo below. (Click to Enlarge image)
The IRI can transmit in continuous waves (CW) or in pulses as short as 10 microseconds (µs). CW transmission is generally used for ionospheric modification, while transmission in short pulses frequently repeated is used as a radar system.
HAARP is the subject of numerous conspiracy theories. Various individuals have speculated hidden motives and capabilities to the project, and have blamed it for triggering catastrophes such as floods, droughts, hurricanes, thunderstorms, earthquakes in Iran, Pakistan, Haiti and the Philippines, major power outages, the downing of TWA Flight 800, Gulf War syndrome, and chronic fatigue syndrome.
A Russian military journal wrote that ionospheric testing would "trigger a cascade of electrons that could flip earth's magnetic poles".
The European Parliament and the Alaska state legislature held hearings about HAARP, the former citing "environmental concerns".
Nick Begich Jr., the son of former U.S. Representative Nick Begich and author of "Angels Don't Play This HAARP," has claimed that HAARP could trigger earthquakes and turn the upper atmosphere into a giant lens so that "the sky would literally appear to burn"
"The History Channel" did a show on this topic, explaining exactly how HAARP could be used to cause an earthquake. A 3 minute segment of that broadcast appears below:
The United States has not responded to the Russian accusation made in connection with the Crimean earthquake but the implications of the Russian accusation are frightening: If Russia believes - or can prove- that a U.S. Defense Department project was used to cause an earthquake, then Russia may choose to deem the event a "first strike" with a "weapon of mass destruction." Such a determination by Russia could then be the basis for Russia to respond to the first strike with a strike of their own, with a weapon of mass destruction of their own.
This is a developing story, with very dangerous implications. More details as they become available. Check back.
