Seoul Cautious as Fingers Point at N. Korea - from Pandabonium
The Korea Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources in South Korea said that at the time of the incident, a soundwave in the air equivalent to 260 kilograms of TNT exploding was detected. The amount equals the explosive power of a middle-size torpedo carried by North Korea's Sango-class submarine. The possibility of a sea mine causing the disaster is regarded as low.

The South Korean media and the public are increasingly leaning toward the theory that Pyongyang was involved. But the patrol ship did not detect anything that suggested a submarine or torpedo was in the area before the explosion.

Poor Bernanke is under the delusion that the Economy is recovering. We don't see any jobs because there is no recovery.

As far as everything else is concerned, "The chief source of problems is solutions."

Below is another very interesting link, on the total geopolitical picture of how the US is consolidating its military power on the planet:

I don't know what Bernanke actually believes. His bosses have played this pattern out in nation after nation under the auspices of the IMF.

They know exactly what they are doing. And it's clearly intentional.

They are profiting from the looting of nations.

When you see someone making the same mistake over and over and over, and making big bucks from that mistake, it's probably not really a mistake.

Today on CBC Radio's 'The Current' Bill McKibben was interviewed on his new book "Eaarth" (the extra 'a' is intended). Good interview to listen to; it's about living on an earth that is not so hospitable any longer and strategies to cope with that.
Go here:

you'll find the interview on the right hand side of the page under Featured Audio. After today (April 15, 2010), you'll find it under Past Episodes.

I agree with Weaseldog 100% this looting of the USA is 100% planned out..

Kamilov,

That religious site seems to be using dated information. The missile shield idea has gone badly so far, and this quote:

"The West also moved into bases in Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan..."

seems to ignore recent events. The US was evicted in 2005 from Uzbekistan, and is fighting for its hold on Kyrg.

(Any word from your part of the world, on the likely fate of Manas base in Kyrgystan? I read it would stay open, but the US officials seem to be making deep bows to keep it.)

Georgia, and now Ukraine, kind of blew the containment of Russia theme, I thought, and the Big Bear just sold missiles to Iran which seem to be pointed in the opposite direction.

True enough, the exuberance of the last administration aimed in the direction of containing the other big powers, but Uncle Sam has been trying to put a polite face on drastically reduced expectations of world domination, lately.

Two videos from my students in Contemporary Issues, here in Taiwan. The
first
is hysterical. The
second
is not.

Mr. Kamilov: I knew I saw citations for the exact patents on theflucase.com about a month ago. I started searching last night. When I got up this morning the entire website is gone! I get messages telling me "Forbidden" or directed to some generic website trying to imitate it. I wonder who pulled the plug? There were lots of citations on the Polish plane disaster of late. I also read they have erased all mention of Jane Burgermeister from Wikipedia also. You can still find selected information from her on the web and videos on Youtube. Must be she was showing us too much. I found some video footage from a documentary on human-made earthquakes, but haven't found the exact patent for the technology. I will keep plugging and post when I find it. What next will they be shutting down?

RanD said...

The first is hysterical, the second is not?

Looks like A & Z of the exact same story to us.

Nice to see someone teaching her/his children... uh... er... his/her students... well.

Wonderful; sincerely.

your views on this topic are really interesting and give a clear cut view. Thanks for sharing the knowledge

Eyeballs - yes, it stands to reason that when the "life force" is weakened, so is the ability to dominate. That is the reason for the polite face. They know what will follow, and presumably the Antipas website anticipates an eschatalogical outcome, but from a totally different angle, and certainly not Peak Oil, although they did comment on it during the 2008 spike.
So far nothing has been said about Manas, but then ex-President Kurmanbek Bakiyev is still hiding somewhere in his village area down south, held by his loyalists and tribesmen, no doubt with generous help from Uncle Sam, so they will have to see to him first before deciding anything else.

Yes, cj, the swine flu pandemic seems to have disappeared with the same "noise" it came in with! Some silence, as they say, is louder than words. The earthquake-production technology you talk about is fairly common knowledge: HAARP, if I am correct. There was a recent interesting report concerning a possible successful test of HAARP on a new Russian missile here:

although the author Richard Hoagland says that it was done by Nazi scientists who escaped into space after 1945! That however doesn't detract from the probability that a whole host of related surreptitious technologies such as EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) and various sonic technologies are being secretly investigated for a wide spectrum of applications including causing earthquakes, deadening electronics and for mass riot control purposes.
