Huge floating radar on its way to Seattle


www.komonews.com

SEATTLE -- If you look out your window tomorrow and see a huge piece of military hardware floating in Puget Sound, don't be alarmed.

The Missile Defense Agency's Sea-Based X-band Radar is on its way to Vigor Shipyard on Harbor Island in Seattle's Elliot Bay for maintenance work.

The floating radar platform will be at the shipyard for about three months, but the radar will not operate while it is in Seattle, officials said.

An agency spokeswoman said the platform will enter the Strait of Juan de Fuca on Monday night and should be visible from Port Angeles on Tuesday morning.

I've heard rumors that this platform (or one like it) was near Japan prior to the March 11 quake... so, I'm not feeling all that great about it being right in my backyard. I don't really buy the "in for repairs" story. It could be completely true, but with all the crap going down lately, I'll always wonder. It is possible that they are bringing it in to detect incoming attacks, but with an air force base & a naval air base in the area I'm not so sure it would be necessary for that. I just hope an earthquake or false flag attack aren't in my immediate future

The floating X-band radar station is a prototype and has been having problems since it was first deployed.
It is quite regularly returned to port for repairs, most often at Pearl Harbor.

It doesn't concern me, but it is interesting nonetheless....It also has nothing to do with the earthquake. Studies already show what caused the earthquake. Japan, like Seattle have fault lines...pretty much anything along the pacific ring of fire does.

News was slow on this for the past few days, 1 video, an article and a sideshow of it moving into Puget Sound. It's downtown Seattle as of yesterday evening or night, was stated to be there for repairs. People visiting and of course locals will be able to see it from down.
The slideshow: Here

The conspiracy, that could be possible is; as reports by the MSM say that OBL terror attacks would happen in smaller cities and areas. As to why it is stadioned in Seattle. Not only the city areas, but also to places in the Pacific NW such as Hanford^ and the Grand Coulee Dam*, located in WA, which powers a lot of the electricity in the region. The Hanford attack(as an example,see below) would contaminate the area and waterways such as the Columbia with plutonium and other hazardus chemicals.. So, that would site for a seemingly, not that you can miss it, placed detection system that's said to be having maintenance done.

*

It is the largest electric power-producing facility in the United States[3] and one of the largest concrete
structures in the world.[1] Source

^

The Hanford Site is a mostly decommissioned nuclear production complex on the Columbia River in the U.S. state of Washington...Source

You completely made that up.. Case and point... This is why nobody can be believed. You have nothing to gain by making up that lie.. You just did. You thought it would make for good conversation, or make you seem "in the know"

Show ONE SINGLE source saying that this "floating radar" was near japan... Show me a rumor.. Show me a blog for that matter... Shoot Ill even take a email that YOU sent..

None of these exist, simply because you sir, MADE THAT UP!!

Made it up? Don't think so. Google is your friend. I said it was "rumored" & never claimed it was fact. And, I didn't post this to seem to be "in the know". If anything, I wanted others here that might know more to discuss it simply because there is so little info on this topic, & I want to know more.

The system is so powerful it can spot baseball-sized objects from 3,000 miles away.

Funny how they have technology to do this, but on 9/11 the US Government had no system to spot four huge commercial airliners right in their backyard.

Don't talk if you don't know what your talking about, it doesn't seem like you know anything about radar or aviation in the US.
