US To Test 700-ton Explosive
(March 30, 2006) — The US military plans to detonate a 700-ton explosive charge in a test called “Divine Strake” that will send a mushroom cloud over Las Vegas, a senior defense official said.
“I don’t want to sound glib here but it is the first time in Nevada that you’ll see a mushroom cloud over Las Vegas since we stopped testing nuclear weapons,” said James Tegnelia, head of the Defense Threat Reduction Agency.
Tegnelia said the test was part of a US effort to develop weapons capable of destroying deeply buried bunkers housing nuclear, chemical or biological weapons.
“We have several very large penetrators we’re developing,” he told defense reporters.
“We also have — are you ready for this – a 700-tonne explosively formed charge that we’re going to be putting in a tunnel in Nevada,” he said.
“And that represents to us the largest single explosive that we could imagine doing conventionally to solve that problem,” he said.
The aim is to measure the effect of the blast on hard granite structures, he said.
“If you want to model these weapons, you want to know from a modeling point of view what is the ideal best condition you could ever set up in a conventional weapon — what’s the best you can do.
“And this gets at the best point you could get on a curve. So it allows us to predict how effective these kinds of weapons … would be,” he said.
He said the Russians have been notified of the test, which is scheduled for the first week of June at the Nevada test range.
“We’re also making sure that Las Vegas understands,” Tegnelia said.

US Plans World’s Largest Explosion
Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Russian Subscribers
(March 31, 2006) — Russian Military Analysts are reporting today that they have received an urgent communiqué from the United States Pentagon that during the first
week of June they will be detonating the World’s largest known conventional explosion in one of their most seismically active Regions, the State of Nevada, and as we also as being confirmed by the Associated Press News Service in their article titled “US to test 700-tonne
explosive” and which says:
“The US military plans to detonate a 700 tonne explosive charge in a test called “Divine Strake” that will send a mushroom cloud over Las Vegas, a senior defense official said. “I don’t want to sound glib here
but it is the first time in Nevada that you’ll see a mushroom cloud over Las Vegas since we stopped testing nuclear weapons,” said James Tegnelia, head of the Defense Threat Reduction Agency.”
Russian Geologists upon studying this extraordinary United States communiqué dispute the reasons given by the American Military Government for this massive explosion being needed for the testing of ‘bunker busting‚’ bomb technology.
One of these reports states that this massive explosion is intended to relieve the Massive Tectonic pressure upon the
North American Plate and which is now threatening to activate the Yellowstone Super Volcano, and of which we can read as reported by the Fox News Service in their article titled “Giant Volcano Under
Yellowstone Park Stirring to Life”, and which says:
“Forces brewing deep beneath Yellowstone National Park could be making one of the largest volcanoes on Earth even bigger, a new study reveals.
In the past decade, part of the volcano has risen nearly five inches, most likely due to a backup of flowing molten rock miles below the planet’s crust. While the rise may not be noticeable to the casual hiker, the activity may have cracked the crust in the park’s famous Norris Geyser Basin (NGB), leading to the formation of new fumaroles — holes that vent smoke and gas — and the reawakening of some of the area’s geysers, including Steamboat, the largest geyser in the world.”
Of even greater concern to the United States are the recent scientific studies of the Great Sumatra Earthquake as they have shown that the Western Regions of America are at much greater risk than previously believed, and as we can read as reported by Physorg.Com News Service in their article titled “Sumatra megaquake defied theory”, and which says:
“The risks of Sumatra-style mega-quakes around the world have been sorely misjudged, say earth scientists who are re-examining some of the pre-December 2004 assumptions scientists made about such rare events.
For more than two decades geologists had thought that the largest quakes, of magnitude 9 and greater, happen when a young tectonic plate is subducted, or shoved quickly, under another plate. But the Great
Sumatra-Andaman earthquake of 26 December 2004 didn’t match that pattern
The Indian Plate is middle-aged and moving at a middling rate, which throws into question the estimated quake dangers at other similar quake-prone zones near Japan, in the Pacific Northwest, Chile, Alaska, and elsewhere.
Previous to the catastrophic 26 December 2004 earthquake, the theory about how subduction zones generate quakes was straightforward, says Okal. It boiled down to age and speed. Where an older, colder and
therefore denser slab of crust is being pushed slowly under another plate, “It will want to sink,” he said.
As a result, there’s not a lot of stress building up to cause large quakes. At the other end of that same spectrum are subduction zones where young, buoyant crust is being forced
quickly under another plate. The rate of “convergence” and the fact that the young crust resists sinking causes lots of stress to build up and results in much larger quakes.
“So you could take a map of all the subduction zones of the world and look at it,” said Okal. “The red areas were ones with younger, faster moving crust and the blue areas were older, slow moving crust.” The
theory seemed tidy enough and could be verified somewhat by dating the crust, measuring the rates entire tectonic plates seemed to be moving at, and estimating the power of past quakes from historical accounts.
According to the theory, the Sumatra subduction zone was capable of no more than a magnitude 8 earthquake, Okal explains. “The cold shower we got was Sumatra,” said Okal. “We have a 9.3 on our hands. You got a point that violates the plan outrageously.”
But perhaps to potentially the greatest catastrophe this Massive Explosion could cause would be the sacrificing of the State of
California as the Tectonic Forces on the North American Plate would then, should this American plan work, be ‘transferred’ from Yellowstone to the thousands of fault lines throughout that State.
Dr. Scientist Adushkin has further stated in these reports that this Massive Explosion could actually produce the opposite effect of what the American Scientists are attempting to achieve by not only triggering catastrophic
earthquakes in California, but also accelerating the Volcanic activity in both Yellowstone and the North American Pacific Northwest Regions.
For whatever the final results from this Massive Explosion might be it is not to our knowing. But to the greater catastrophic dangers facing those peoples in the Western Regions of the United States and Canada it can be said that the sooner they are evacuated from these areas the greater number of them could be saved.
