Well Phage, I am a bit surprised how you are so willing to accept what you read from the media... I don't know, perhaps you also believe that 911 was
caused by a handful of terrorists...
First off, to believe the Russian's claim that a missile was tested and succeeded, you would have to assume that the Russians never lie (that no
government ever lies), that the Russians are going to tell the world all about their secret technology, etc.... in all likelihood, from past
experience, the world should not believe what Russia says in the media, especially about it's weapons and defense.
Secondly, that spiral stayed around for a long time (and the one in China 20 years ago, stayed around for 5 hours according to official China report),
and clearly the radials from the spiral were not smoke because they retained their shape for a long time, going around many times as the spiral grew
larger. No, this was more likely a plasma discharge of some sort, given it's particular characteristics.
Thirdly, the recordings that were made included sound, and we do not hear any sound from this event. I have listened to many other videos of missile
and rocket launches, and they all had a roaring sound as the missile ascended. This phenomenon was silent.
Fourthly, in the center of the spiral, a hole opened up at a fairly fast rate, and the hole was perfectly round (at least visually it appeared to be).
This seemed to happen once the source of the spiral was terminated.
Fifthly, the bottom corkscrew was blue in color, and then at the top of the blue corkscrew is where the flat spiral formed, which was white. If this
was a missile, you would not see a flat spiral, but a continuing cone, which you do not see.
You are the one who says to get the facts first, then you can distort them, but it seems to me that you simply pulled up an article where the Russian
government (known for its deception) says it shot a missile on the night in question. In any court that would be circumstantial evidence, since the
presence of a missile does not mean this phenomenon had anything to do with that... I mean for all we know the Russians shot a missile at the spiral,
trying to destroy it, and now they are trying to cover things up. I mean, I do not believe that testing ICBM's is something they should be doing,
given the various test-ban treaties in place, and I HIGHLY doubt they would do it twice in a week, once in Norway and once in Russia.
At any rate, you post this one line post (excluding the link), and you state IT WAS, IT WAS, IT WAS, as if you have 100% certainty on the matter, and
from my scientific, logical, trained mind, I don't see at all where you have made any kind of case.
