It appears that not everyone believes the tragedy in Turkey and Syria was a natural disaster, caused by the Earth’s tectonic plates. More and more people online are speculating that the earthquake was deliberately caused by the US administration.
Shortly after the high-magnitude earthquakes in Turkey and Syria, which resulted in the loss of thousands of lives and huge material damage, a first theory emerged. Supporters believe the Americans are behind the earthquakes.
Earthquakes caused by HAARP antennas
The internet users, who often merely read headlines and then spread them around, claim that a certain device, known as HAARP, was involved.
HAARP, short for High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program, is an ionospheric research program, funded by the Pentagon, the US administration and the University of Alaska, that is often invoked in all sorts of global disasters. Note that the Russian Federation also hosts a similar program.
The program is dedicated to the analysis of the ionosphere, using a high-frequency transmitter. Various people often claim that HAARP causes earthquakes or triggers other natural disasters, without understanding exactly how such a system works – but continue to believe that HAARP was behind earthquakes in Turkey and Syria that killed more than 20,000 people.
This program represents the research work carried out on the ionosphere to determine the behavior of ozone, nitrogen and their ions to solar and cosmic radiation bombardment, as well as to high frequency (HF) or low frequency (ELF) radiation emission from the Earth. The HAARP project uses ground-based equipment consisting of a network of antennas, each antenna powered by its own generator, which can heat up parts of the ionosphere using radio waves. So far, 48 antennas have been built, with the number eventually reaching 360. It is located in Alaska.
What is the origin of the earthquake in Turkey and Syria?
The epicenter was located about 26 km east of the Turkish town of Nurdagi, at a depth of about 18 km, on the Eastern Anatolian Fault. The Earthquake radiated northeastward, bringing devastation to central Turkey and Syria.
In the 20th century, the Eastern Anatolian Fault had little major seismic activity. “If we were to rely only on the (major) earthquakes that were recorded by seismometers, it would look more or less bare,” said Roger Musson, honorary research associate at the British Geological Survey.
Only three earthquakes have registered above 6.0 on the Richter scale since 1970 in the area, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. But in 1822, an earthquake measuring 7.0 struck the region, killing about 20,000 people.
The East Anatolian Fault is a strike-slip fault, which means that plates of solid rock push against each other along a vertical fault, building up stresses until one of them finally slips in a horizontal movement, releasing a huge amount of stress that can trigger an earthquake.
Given the technical-scientific information, it is hard to believe that a ground-based antenna system located tens of thousands of kilometers away could cause an earthquake in Turkey and Syria. Of course, if you try hard – or not, especially if we’re talking online – you can find a direct correlation.
Romania seems not to be oblivious to the current blackness. The earthquakes of Monday (February 13th 2023) and Tuesday ( February 14th 2023) in the Oltenia area – 5.2 and 5.7 on the Richter scale – have prompted many internet users to say that “it already seems suspicious that after Turkey comes Romania”, blaming the same innocent antennas and the complicity of the media “which had the news already prepared”.
One of the most popular nonsense is also entertained by the relentlessly delusional Diana Șoșoacă (senator?!), who the other day, from the rostrum of the Romanian Parliament, accused global occult forces of having “ordered” the earthquake in Turkey in order to take revenge on Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, for whom she had only words of praise – although Erdogan rules Turkey despotically.
“How long have we lived to witness even the production of earthquakes on command? In fact, it’s an attack on Turkey by the world’s greatest, who totally disliked the fact that they were put in their place by Recep Tayyp Erdogan, Turkey’s president. Moreover, his position of neutrality and mediator in the Ukrainian-Russian war has deeply disturbed, especially as Turkey is the second largest military power within NATO. His stance to block Sweden’s accession to NATO, as well as his speech at Davos, and especially his gesture to walk out in the middle of the conference in defiance of the Shabab, did not go unheeded in the harsh and cold world of world leaders.”
Mrs. Șoșoacă and the internet users who are gleefully distributing a video clip showing Erdogan angrily leaving a global conference in Davos forget to “notice” that that incident dates back to 2009. Today it’s 2023 – apparently it took them a long time to get their revenge.
Tectonic plates are real, their displacement and collisions just as real. The tragedy in Turkey and Syria was also caused by the faulty construction of buildings in that seismic zone – Japan remains a benchmark for earthquake safety, an expertise from which all countries can learn.
Science isn’t for everyone, but the internet apparently is.
