I sent you a U2U that touches on this but because it could be useful to have it public I'll say something here.
Folks, a few years ago, things were pretty hot in Afghanistan as you know -- and lots of very big bombs were being dropped by the US and allies on
taliban (so they say). So many big bombs in fact that the US Dept of Defense made a special request to Congress for extra funding to buy more of their
huge (2,000 lb) bombs as they'd used up almost all their stock in Afghanistan. I think they asked for $200 million, enough to pay for another 400 of
these bombs. (Yes, they cost half a million bucks a piece, and they'd used almost all of them...In Afghanistan.)
That's a lot of energy being dropped in a small area...
Well I noticed two things: there were a few quakes in that region around that time -- and within a couple of days, there seemed to be an increase in
quake activity in California. (Sorry but I didn't note Nevada. Cal was my focus then.) Anyways I wondered if these bombings and the quakes were
possibly linked. So I checked some world maps and determined that the Afghan highland/Iran border region was 180 degrees around the world from
California and at around the same latitude...
This led me to think that perhaps some types of high-intensity shock waves can travel right through the earth and perhaps cause seismic effects on the
opposite side. Not always at 180 degrees or even at exactly the same latitude, of course, because the angles of the shock waves come into play, but
it's a starting point for a theory. Yes, I know that there are numerous faults in Cali and surrounding regions but that doesn't negate the theory.
If you knock a porcelain plate that's already brittle or cracked it will shatter; if the plate is sound then it ought to hold...
So okay, that's the theory. And now you have this mysterious swarm of micro-quakes and a few that are even beyond micro. No-one in the official
realms has a clue as to what the cause may be. So let's have a look at it. The quakes you posted a link to are all located around 39.5 deg N and
119.9 deg E. So let's say around 39 -40 -odd N latitude and 120 E, plus or minus a few degrees. Go around the world from there 180 degrees and you
get the same latitude range but 60 degrees West.
As you might expect, because the Nevada quake swarm zone ain't that far from California, this puts you around the Afghanistan-Iran border region.
It's rugged, mountainous, seismically active from time to time -- and sometimes forces of the Coalition of the Willing are still
hell out of it...
Are they bombing there now? I mean, even if they aren't making a big deal about it, could this be a possible cause?
I'm beat. It's approaching midnight so I'll leave it with you.
BTW I have no beef with ordinary military people. My Dad was in the Navy for eight years (volunteered) and I'm proud of what he did for my home
country. What I think of certain high-ups in govt is not so positive but that's for another thread... My only concern here
is to consider
possible causes of quakes and ways that we can try and predict them...no matter how far-out the idea may be.
