I would just have to ask you folks, if any of you have considered that Both things may have occured simultaneously, and for a very good reason.
Ive done a bit of research on HAARP and such in the past, and there are a great many a question as to what its origin was and what its true existence
is for. Also noting that other countries are conducting this type of research including Norway and Russia.
First ask yourself who funded HAARP? If memory serves me correctly it has something to do with Reagans's SDI...
Secondly what could HAARP do? (interchange EISCAT and HAARP freely)
The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) is an ionospheric research program jointly funded by the US Air Force, the US Navy, the
University of Alaska and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). Its purpose is to analyze the ionosphere and investigate the
potential for developing ionospheric enhancement technology for radio communications and surveillance purposes (such as missile detection). The
HAARP program operates a major Arctic facility, known as the HAARP Research Station, on an Air Force owned site near Gakona, Alaska.
OTH Radar imagery, Ionization of a layer of atmoshpere which could damage or destroy incoming or in this case outgoing ICBMs, VLF Communications with
subs or perhaps tracking them?
All of these things become useful once you know the date and time of Russias latest and greatest ICBM. You can bet it would be of US / Norway's
highest interests to accurately track, view, or disrupt Russia's next great missile.
Its a well know fact that Russia absolutley objects to HAARP, and classifies it as a Weapon, as stated here:
The HAARP project became the subject of controversy in the mid-1990s, following claims that the antennas could be used as a weapon. In August 2002, a
critical mention of HAARP technology came from the State Duma (parliament) of Russia. The Duma issued a press release on the HAARP written by the
international affairs and defense committees, signed by 90 deputies and presented to then President Vladimir Putin. The statement claimed:
The U.S. is creating new integral geophysical weapons that may influence the near-Earth medium with high-frequency radio waves ... The significance of
this qualitative leap could be compared to the transition from cold steel to firearms, or from conventional weapons to nuclear weapons. This new type
of weapons differs from previous types in that the near-Earth medium becomes at once an object of direct influence and its component.
Russia would be quick to admit a lauch failure of any type versus opening itself to the fact that even its newest ICBM is vulnerable to Norway / US
and the fact that they are unable shield their weapons even after several failures.
