Earlier this week, a Spanish newspaper quoted Venezuelan leader Hugo
Chavez as saying the U.S. Navy caused the Haiti earthquake with a
tectonic weapon. The Venezuelan media reported that the earthquake “may
be associated with the project called HAARP, a system that can
generate violent and unexpected changes in climate,” Press TV reported on January 21.
Chavez cited a report from Russia’s Northern Fleet. According to the
report, the U.S. Navy made a mistake with a secret “earthquake weapon”
and the result was the Haitian earthquake. The Russians believe the
intended target was Iran. “Though Russian Northern Fleets’ report was
not confirmed by official sources, the comments attracted special
attention in some US and Russian media outlets including Fox news and
Russia Today,” writes Pragmatic Witness blog. “Russia Today’s report
said that Moscow has also been accused of possessing and utilizing such
“Speaking on his weekly television show, Chavez opined that the U.S.
mission in Haiti was a ruse to initiate military occupation,” the New York Daily News said.
Venezuelan media “added that the U.S. government’s HAARP program, an
atmospheric research facility in Alaska (and frequent subject of
conspiracy theories), was also to blame for a Jan. 9 quake in Eureka,
Calif., and may have been behind the 7.8-magnitude quake in China that
killed nearly 90,000 people in 2008,” Fox News reported on Thursday.
Others [terrorists] are engaging even in an eco-type of
terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes,
volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves… So there
are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways
in which they can wreak terror upon other nations…It’s real, and that’s
the reason why we have to intensify our [counterterrorism] efforts.
Cohen would have you believe it is a technology that only terrorists
would use. It depends on who you would call a terrorist.
In 1966, Professor Gordon
J. F. MacDonald, associate director of the Institute of Geophysics
and Planetary Physics at the University of California, Los Angeles,
was a member of the President’s Science Advisory Committee. MacDonald
published papers on the use of environmental-control technologies for
military purposes, including “earthquake engineering” (he also wrote
about weather manipulation, climate modification, polar ice cap melting
or destabilization, ozone depletion techniques).
“The revealed secrets surprised legislators,” writes Dr. Nick Begich.
“Would an inquiry into the state of the art of electromagnetic
manipulation surprise lawmakers today? They may find out that
technologies developed out of the HAARP experiments in Alaska could
deliver on Gordon MacDonald’s vision because leading-edge scientists
are describing global weather as not only air pressure and thermal
systems, but also as an electrical system.”
Jesse Ventura detailed the HAARP program on his
popular truTV show Conspiracy Theory:
Of course, we have no direct evidence the Pentagon used HAARP to
touch off a massive earthquake in Haiti.
U.S., however, has exploited the earthquake to send the military to
the stricken island nation. “They brazenly occupied Haiti without
consulting the UN or the OAS (Organization of American States),” said
Chavez earlier in the week. Bolivian President Evo Morales said Wednesday he
would request an emergency UN meeting “to repudiate and reject this
military occupation of the United States in Haiti.”
“It’s not right the United States should use this natural disaster
to invade and militarily occupy Haiti,” he told a press conference.
“The unspoken mission of US Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) with
headquarters in Miami and US military installations throughout Latin
America is to ensure the maintenance of subservient national regimes,
namely US proxy governments, committed to the Washington Consensus and
the neoliberal policy agenda,” writes Michel Chossudovsky. “While US military personnel
will at the outset be actively involved in emergency and disaster
relief, this renewed US military presence in Haiti will be used to
establish a foothold in the country as well pursue America’s strategic
and geopolitical objectives in the Caribbean basin, which are largely
directed against Cuba and Venezuela.”
The objective is not to work towards the rehabilitation
of the national government, the presidency, the parliament, all of
which has been decimated by the earthquake. Since the fall of the
Duvalier dictatorship, America’s design has been to gradually dismantle
the Haitian State, restore colonial patterns and obstruct the
functioning of a democratic government. In the present context, the
objective is not only to do away with the government but also to revamp
the mandate of the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti
(MINUSTAH), of which the headquarters have been destroyed…
Prior to the earthquake, there were, according to US military
sources, some 60 US military personnel in Haiti. From one day to the
next, an outright military surge has occurred: 10,000 troops, marines,
special forces, intelligence operatives, etc., not to mention private
mercenary forces on contract to the Pentagon.
In all likelihood the humanitarian operation will be used as a
pretext and justification to establish a more permanent US military
presence in Haiti.
Is it possible the Pentagon would kill 100,000 or more Haitians to
realize such a project?
