Tens Dead, Hundreds Injured As 6.1 Earthquake Hits Near Iran's Nuclear Power Plant

Tyler Durden's picture


A few hours ago, a major 6.1 magnitude quake struck in Iran once again, some 100 km away from Bushehr - location of Iran's only nuclear power plant. According to subsequent reports, at least 30 people have been killed and nearly 600 injured, although at least for now the official version is that the power plan was undamaged. From Al Jazeera: "Fereydoon Hasanvand, governor of Bushehr, said the nuclear plant was undamaged by Tuesday's earthquake. "No damage at all has been caused" to the plant, he told state television. The Russian company that built the nuclear-power station, 18km south of Bushehr, said the quake had been felt there but that operations at the plant were not affected. "The earthquake in no way affected the normal situation at the reactor."

Of course, as TEPCO and Japan so vividly and glowingly in the dark demonstrated, when it comes to nuclear power plants, the last thing to be released, long after the alpha, beta and gamma rays, is the truth. We doubt this time would be any different.

A description of the ordeal via Al Jazeera:

One Busehr resident said her home and the homes of her neighbours were shaken by the quake but not damaged.


"We could clearly feel the earthquake," Nikoo, who requested to be identified only by her first name, told Reuters news agency by telephone.


"The windows and chandeliers all shook."


The quake hit at 1152 GMT with a depth of 12km, the Iran Seismological Centre said.


The US Geological Survey, which monitors quakes worldwide, ranked the quake at a more powerful 6.3 magnitude.


Tremors from the earthquake in western Iran could also be felt in Gulf countries.


In Doha, the Qatari capital, residents told Al Jazeera that they could feel buildings shake before residents were evacuated.


There was no immediate reports of damage.

In brief: no mentions of HAARP anywhere. Just as it should be.

Megathrust earthquakes record huge MW values, or total energy released. The 2004 Indian Ocean Earthquake released 9,560 gigatons of TNT (40,000 EJ) equivalent, but its ME (surface rupture energy, or potential for damage) was far smaller at 26.3 megatons of TNT (110 PJ). 

The total global nuclear arsenal is about 30,000 nuclear warheads with a destructive capacity of 5,000 megatons or 5 gigatons (5,000 million tons) of TNT.

Having been a hundred miles from a 6.1 many times my question is did they even feel the earthquake at the nuke plant? Unless they built the plant with unreinforced mud bricks like they built the rest of Iran don't expect this to become a Fukashima-like event.

People sometimes wonder about what makes Christianity different from the other religions of the world.


It's the only religion where a man was raised from the dead. 


It's the only religion where it's not about what "you" do; it's about what somebody else did for you. 


To put it in a nutshell, you broke the spiritual laws of the universe (lying, cheating, stealing, adultery, idolatry... everyone has done it), and to pay for your trespasses, you owe your life. But somebody else took the death sentence for you. By accepting that, death no longer has any hold over you.

I've stated many times that 'RELIGIONS' perplex me...


Supposedly ~ the jews did nothing but pray to their single diety to free them from the Egyptians... But no sooner did the Exodus occur & they found themselves worshipping statues of a golden calf...

Many years later, Jesus, who was a jew, tossed 'money changers' from the Temple [which supposedly held the Arc of the Covenant from the scraps of stone that resulted when Moses has his hissy fit because they were worshipping golden calves]...

Fast Forward & a new religion is created, exalting Jesus [who was a jew, & who apparently had major problems with 'money changers' & 'statists'], yet the Christian lifestyle fully adopts the same God, more or less, to who the jews pray... They also don't seem to have a problem with usury...

Enter the Muslims, years later, who acknowledge Jesus... &, like Jesus, are firmly AGAINST usury... Yet both the jews & Christians HATE them...

Am I missing something?

I agree absolutely. Unfortunately, most pick up only on fashionable cliches, like "God helps those who help themselves." More unfortunately, the Old Testament can really only be understood if one understands the original Hebrew, and the New Testament refers back to the OT in numerous places, while not written in ancient Hebrew. Plus, you can't just read one section of the Bible - say, ithe Israelites conquering the Promised Land under Joshua - without understanding what came before - like the days before Noah. 

Whether one wants to believe the Bible is a myth or absolute truth, the fact is that the original version is a very interlocked, coherent set of writings created by numerous writers over many centuries. That alone sets it apart.

Jews, Christians, and Muslims pray to the same God.

On the contrary, Jews, Christians, and Muslims pray to different gods.  The Christian God said that there is no forgiveness of sins without the shedding of blood (Hebrews 9:22).  The Christian God then sent someone to die as the final sacrifice.  Belief in the efficacy of that shed blood for the forgiveness of sins replaces the need to shed any other blood for forgiveness of sin.  The Jewish God still requires sacrifices.  Indeed, a major hope of some Jews is that the Temple will be rebuilt at some point so that those sacrifices can continue.  And the God of some Muslims requires that they shed their own blood as penance.

On the contrary, Jews, Christians, and Muslims pray to different gods.

We all three pray to The God of Abraham, even us Christians.

From the Gospel of Matthew:

Jesus said,

“And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
"This, then, is how you should pray:

“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.’

For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

God created man.  A God who nobody truly knows as to him, her, it, form, substance, etc.  The essential universal spiritual entity of creation, if you will.

Man created the gods which they named, to which they gave shape and image, etc.  These are the gods which man claims as his own.  Oh, the arrogance of mankind, claiming a god....
It is from such arrogance that the abuses of religion descend, the tyranny of evil men and inequities of the selfish, claiming temporal domination and greed in the name of their god....

If you truly tested the story, you would have found the truth.  You are arguing to try to convince yourself that you know something that you do not.  There is no credible evidence that denies the existence of God.  If there was, I'm pretty sure it would go viral and become universal pretty quickly.  But there isn't.

Which leaves the alternative...

Why is it that you speak as Jesus does yet deny Him?  He explained very specifically about how the world would be deceived by people claiming this and that in the name of God.  False prophets, evil-doers, etc.  Nothing inconsistent with that reality and what the Bible says.  (Of course, you would have to actually read it to know these things - try Matthew 24, beginning at verse 3, for starters).

"Daily" Bread?  The Greek is "epiousion" which was mistranslated by Jerome as "cotidianum"  (thus "daily" or "everyday").

The word appears nowhere else in the New Testament.  It means something like "supersubstantail" which seems to refer to the Word of God: "Man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth from the mouth of God".  Recall Ezekial being ordered to eat the scroll.  Etc.

Worth a thought.

Richard P.  Jews and Christians recognize the same God.  Jews do not acknowledge the new covenant, despite all the references in the OT to it (Jeremiah 31, Isaiah 40, 53, 7; Zechariah 9, etc.)  Jews are confined to the Mosaic covenant of Law and sacrifice, but the Lawgiver and the Redeemer are the same deity.

Wed, 04/10/2013 - 00:33 | 3429737 RichardP
RichardP's picture

The God the Christians acknowledge sent someone to die for the sins of everyone.  The Gods that the Jews and Muslims acknowledge did not do this.  The God of the Jews requires a sacrifice.  Preferably performed in a rebuilt Temple.  Christians and Muslims don't acknowledge that God.  The God of some Muslims requires them to draw their own blood through self-flagellation.  Jews and Christians do not acknowledge that God.  Do not claim that all three religions recognize the same God.  They do not.

One God cannot say you no longer need to sacrifice and you must sacrifice at the same time and mean both statements simultaneously.  That is a logical impossibility.  Jews, Muslims, and Christians do not all acknowledge the same God.  Each acknowledges a different God, with a different set of requirements.  To believe otherwise is to believe the lie.

Wed, 04/10/2013 - 01:48 | 3429837 mayhem_korner
mayhem_korner's picture



You are mistaken and by extension misleading people.  The God that the Jews acknowledge is exactly the same one that Christians acknowledge.  The difference is the covenants.  The Jews have not recognized the new and everlasting covenant, which Jesus satisfied by his bloodshed on the cross.  They recognize that blood must be shed for the redemption of sins, but do not recognize that that work is done.  So they continue the ritualistic sacrifice.  So it's a difference in interpretation, not identity.  Read up on the Scriptures, it's abundantly clear.  Try Romans or better yet Hebrews - it walks you through it in very plain language.

Ask any practicing Christian whether their God has sent the Messiah yet.  Ask any practicing Jew whether their God has sent the Messiah yet.  You will get two different answers.  Ask a similar type question comparing Christian to Muslim and Jew to Muslim and you will get a similar fatal distinction between Gods.  Christians and Jews and Muslims do not pray to the same God.

If you really learn what and how practicing Jews think (there are plenty of Internet blogs where you can learn), you will come to understand this:  the issue is not that the Jews do not recognize the new covenent.  They will tell you that their God did not create a new covenant.  You cannot hope to know what and how Jews think until you understand what that Jewish mindset means - their God did not make a new covenant.  Over that issue alone, you will find practicing Jews who will tell you that their God is not the God of the Christians.  You can find similar issues that exist between Muslims and Jews and Muslims and Christians over who their God is and what he does and what he requires.

I am not misleading anyone.  I just know what I am talking about.  The truth is different from what the father of lies would have us believe.  But this is not the place to take this discussion any further.

Barnes Wallis developed the earthquake bomb in 1943.

It was used devastingly against German reinforced concrete U boat pens in

occupied France.Wiped them out in port.

I think you mean that it utilized the uncompressibility of water to transmit waves of force into the pens, thereby ignoring and bypassing the substantial reinforcements of the roofs.

Now, i might be mistaken, and please cite corrections, but I'm pretty confident that the roofs of those damn things were never breached and that in fact they are still there.

Different and earlier bomb also by Barnes Wallis.That was the dambuster..

The earthquake bomb was much much bigger.Still classified under the Official Secrets Act.

There is info out there if you look.It was dropped into the hills around the U boat pens ,which had

withstood convential bombing.The shock wave through the ground collapsed the pens.

Very special metalurgy,for its time, and the delayed fusing allowed deep penetration prior

to exploding.From memory each bomb was 20k lbs of RDX, also carried on modified Lancaster bombers..

With a nuke warhed, would be even more effective.

There nothing new in this world, only improvements on old shit.,

If those bombs hit the actual target ,as claimed, that was not by design.

Would not have detonated anyway probably.

"Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said his country has "gone nuclear" and ordered officials to "speedily" launch five more reactors.

Ahmadinejad was speaking at a ceremony to mark Nuclear Technology Day, as well as launch two uranium mines and a yellow cake production plant in the city of Yazd.

The controversial president once again made clear that Iran has every right to pursue its nuclear programme, even though the western powers believe it is a covert mission to produce atomic weapons.

In a veiled remark to the US, Ahmadinejad said Iran has already become a "nuclear country" and nobody is entitled to deny this status, according to the official Islamic Republic News Agency.  ......

Iran has been celebrating Nuclear Technology Day on 9 April since 2006, when the nuclear fuel production cycle on a laboratory scale was completed.

At the latest round of talks, Iran was urged to halt its nuclear enrichment programme before the uranium reached 20 percent purity, in return for some relief from US-orchestrated sanctions. Iran flatly rejected the proposal. ......

Maybe Iran will retaliate and nuke the Treasury Department next week?  I may hold my payment until the last moment, just because the chances of a false-flag attack, at least, are not zero.

Someone I've directed my comments at: "What, let me see - where"

Me handing the $10 bill for that someone to inspect: "He's right on the corner"

Someone looking and not seeing the hitchhiker: "Where, I don't see the hitchhiker"

Me taking back the $10 bill, looking for a few seconds, then: "Well, looks like someone must've picked him up"

There was earthquake near N Korea just 4 days ago.


An earthquake of 6.2 magnitude was registered in the border area between Russia, China and North Korea, the US Geological Survey said Friday.

The epicenter of the quake was 9km from the Russian village of Zarubino, about 60km northeast of the North Korean city of Aodzhiri and approximately 608 km from the capital Pyongyang. No casualties or damage have been reported.

The earthquake struck at a depth of 561.9 km.

As the epicenter of the quake is not within North Korea itself, the South Korean Defense Ministry said that the quake did in fact result from natural causes, and not a nuclear test.

Russia Officials highlight that the Bushehr nuclear plant in Iran is able to withstand a 6.4 earthquake such as the one that struck earlier today since they built it.

Well, we shall see!

Follow up: Iran media notes that 'at least 20' people thus far have been killed as a result of the earthquake, and over 700 injured.

Russia firm involved in construction of Bushehr plant notes that operations at the plant have not been impacted by the quake.

That shit (pun intended) is for real.  I read they learned about it becuase of FAC observers being within a mile or so of Arc-Light strikes in Vietnam. They got the green apple dirties from the concussion waves.  But short of an Arc-Light raid, I don't know if it's been produced from a mobile platform or what the freq would be. Something in a very low basso, probably.

the rest of this HAARP talk... show me some numbers boys, because they don't lie.  There's this thing in physics about energy, and how fucking much it would take to affect something with the volume of a weather pattern? Let alone bedrock along a fault line. That's a LOT of goddamn juice people.

Plus, if they have this Wunder Waffe, why in the hell are they only using it on podunk shithole countries and their science experiments?  Why wouldn't they have taken over already?
