If you've been listening to the Hysteria or Lunacy Indices lately, you'll have noticed that the diplomatic war of words between the USSA and Russia has been reaching new levels of bluster, to the point that it's becoming very difficult to parse the words for some sort of genuine reality or understanding. In the last few days, we've seen the USSA tell Russia that they weren't playing by our rulebook in Syria, and that as a consequence, we were very upset and going to sit in a corner and pout all by our-basket-of-deplorable-selves with our irretrievably dark hearts. Oh, wait, that's just what Darthillary thinks of people who don't like her... oh, wait, that's what she thinks of Mr Putin and all those people in Russia that don't like her. Wait a minute... I must have missed something, but when did the Russians become Republicans? It must have been when they hacked the DNC emails... oh, wait a minute, there's no evidence that they did that....

... sigh, it's becoming so difficult to follow the lamestream media narrative lately, but I'll keep trying.

Well, anyway, back to the Lunacy and Hysteria Indices (please note, these are analytical breakdowns for Catherine Austin Fitts' Shriek-o-Meter): the diplomatic language between Moscow and the Washington, District of Corruption, has reached new heights. Not only has the District of Corruption decided to sit in its foggy bottom and pout, but according to these stories shared by Mssrs. T.M. and B.G., Russia is using a slightly different language, language that as you might expect has me wondering all sorts of high octane speculations, and that may have the analysts (preferably the ones who are not recent graduates of American quackademia with degrees in gender sensitivity studies) in the Pentagram burning the midnight oil once again. Here's the CNBC version of it.

Russia warns US of potential 'terrible' consequences if Syrian forces attacked

And here's the SeeBS version of the story:

Russia warns U.S. of “tectonic consequences” in Syria

At least the SeeBS story gets the actual warning correct, so we'll focus our high octane speculation on that version of the story:

Russian news agencies quoted Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova as saying that a U.S. intervention against Assad regime forces in the five-year-old Syrian civil war “will lead to terrible, tectonic consequences not only on the territory of this country but also in the region on the whole.”

One has to wonder what, exactly, is meant by "tectonic consequences not only on the territory of (Syria) but also in the region on the whole." Presumably by "region" Ms. Zakharova means the Middle East as commonly understood, the Arabian peninsula, Mesopotamia, trans-Jordan, Syria, the Levant, and Asia Minor. Or, conceivably, she might mean the whole Islamic world in that region, from Libya to Iran and Pakistan. Given yesterday's News and Views from the Nefarium and the recent Libyan request for Russian aid, I suspect she means the latter.

And that leads us to what could she possibly have meant by such an unusual choice of words, what did Russia mean by "tectonic consequences"? There is, of course, the "geopolitical" reading, suggested of course by Ms. Zakharova's comments. The USSA's now decade and a half "war on terror" has hardly secured any of the objectives that were claimed for it: it has destablized Iraq, is attempting to destablize Syria, it has overthrown the secular state in Egypt and only narrowly avoided a completely radicalized government there, and again, overthrew Gaddafi in Libya, and created yet another mess. If the goal was to stabilize the region, gain its oil, and/or force those nations into the western central banking system, the whole thing looks somewhat less than successful. If you're a "zionist conspiracy" nut, then it seems to have fallen a bit short of the "greater Israel" project.

Granted, there have been "geopolitical" tectonic shifts in the entire region: the Russian intervention in Syria being one of them. Effectively, Russia has drawn the line, and simply will not allow the USSA to dictate an American imperium in the Middle East. As a consequence of this, we've seen the nearly 180 degree turn of Sultan Erdogan. The US-Iran deal, with its apparent ransom payment, is another sign of growing US weakness in the region. And as I pointed out in yesterday's News and Views, the Libyan request shows something else: the more moderate elements in the Islamic world remember what US and Western (largely French) intervention did to that country. As I also noted in recent days, there have been other "tectonic shifts" in the region, with special Chinese envoys to Damascus, and an open invitation from President Assad to India to join in the reconstruction of that country. So such invitation was extended to the European powers, or to the USSA.

So perhaps Ms. Zakharova's warning simple means "expect more of the same if you continue down this path," i.e., expect more defections from your allies, even, perhaps, those in Europe. (The subject of another blog I'm afraid).

But let me shift out of low gear into high gear high octane speculation. The Russians know the diplomatic game well; after all, they've been playing it for about a thousand years (a lot longer than the USSA in other words), and have been playing it with some of the best players on the planet: Byzantium, the Mongols, Venice, the British, the Poles, the Swedes, the Germans, the Chinese, the Vatican... you get the idea. They know how to send messages, particularly, messages with potentially several layers of meaning. It's those other less obvious, potential layers of meaning that intrigue me here.

The word "tectonic," in its most basic meaning, is a term of geophysics, and refers to the tectonic plates that comprise the pieces, the "bone structure" if you will, of the Earth's surface. When those plates shift or move, one gets earthquakes. We've been certainly watching tectonic plate shifts in the Middle East, but what if Ms. Zakharova's choice of words means something else? What if, parsing the phrase in its most basic and obvious means, she simple is talking about earthquakes themselves, and the means to produce them?

Years ago on Ms. George Ann Hughes' The Byte Show I spoke about the possibility of earthquake weapons - as destructive as the largest thermonuclear weapons - having been used around the time of the German reunification, as several severe earthquakes struck Georgia, home of then Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard Shervadnadze. Similarly, I maintained at the time of the Fukushima disaster that there were a number of indicators that suggested a tectonic weapon might have been used against Japan. Again, in the Haiti earthquake, and the earthquake that followed near Paral, Chile, shortly thereafter, I again suggested the use of earthquake weapons, and even of an actual earthquake war. Catherine Austin Fitts has suggested, on similar lines of reasoning - natural disasters closely following unusual political or economic activity - that the tsunami in Indonesia was a similar tectonic weapon in use. (Indeed, there were even World War Two studies on how to produce tsunamis prior to Allied amphibious invasions, with, incidentally, particular attention being given to their use against the Japanese home islands themselves... dig for it, it's out there, you'll find it.) There have been disastrous earthquakes in Japan and China, also during this time period and in key  industrial cities.

The Middle East is, of course, an earthquake prone region.

But so is California... the lower American plains...

And of course, the ultimate earthquake weapon would be one which could "crack" that "bone" structure, and create, and exploit, new fault lines.

So why the history lesson that I just reviewed of the potential use of such weapons? Well, for one thing, note that most of these occasions were against enemy states to affect a political outcome (the Soviet earthquakes and German reunification), or uses against friendly states appearing like they were going to go off the reservation (Japan and Fukushima. This, I suspect, is the "deep reason" in fact, behind Japanese rearmament). In other words, all uses in my short review suggest a "western" monopoly on the technology.

So perhaps Ms. Zakharova is really saying, "we know about it, and have it too." Think about that, for such a technology, equally destructive as any large nuclear weapon, has no radioactive after effects on the user of the weapon. And for such a statement, coming from the foreign ministry of a country that has recently shut down our most sophisticated missile frigates in the Donald Cook incident, and then performed the same task over all of Syria early in the Russian intervention there, this has to give those Pentagram analysts pause(that is, the analysts that are at least concerned with the defense of the nation, not the nutcases writing gender sensitivity  manuals for Ash Carter's "sensitive" military.)

In short, "tectonic consequences" might mean just that, tectonic consequences.

See you on the flip side...

    I read “tectonic” in its usual meaning, too. So many other words to use, and she chose this one. Hope it reaches the people who were meant to hear it…

  2. zendogbreath on October 8, 2016 at 3:43 pm

    sure would be nice to see syria stabilized and protected with putin taking full credit. and then spreading that kinda influence and protection throughout the m.e. giving lie to the struggles that nato and ussa have so altruistically endured and imposed on the m.e.

    wonder what kinda influence and protection putin could give us here at home

    wonder how putin and his backers might save our pensions.

    you may call me a dreamer. but i’m not the only one.

  3. enki-nike on October 8, 2016 at 1:15 pm

    The United States has a deep and vast network of underground facilities (as far as Richard Sauder’s research is reliable). What will happen to these facilities in a “tectonic” war??

    • T.J. on October 8, 2016 at 2:34 pm

      Enki-Nike: The Mineral VA epicenter quake supposedly destroyed some of those DUMBs. Also DUMBs in Colorado destroyed around the same time.

  4. goshawks on October 7, 2016 at 7:41 pm

    Joseph: “If you’re a ‘zionist conspiracy’ nut, then it seems to have fallen a bit short of the ‘greater Israel’ project.”

    Ah, but that only applies, “If the goal was to stabilize the region, gain its oil, and/or force those nations into the western central banking system…” (And, I believe that several of those nations were either forced into the western central banking system or their intrinsic banking systems were taken-down as a prelude to that.)

    Like in the old SF short-story I mentioned yesterday, it is a mistake to view an opponent’s value-system as a mirror-image of yours. It may be vastly different. In the Middle East case, the observed result is chaos. Plus, a lack of military capability. What if that were EXACTLY the desired outcome?

    Also, there is a ‘blind spot’ in Joseph’s reading:
    “Russian news agencies quoted Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova as saying that a U.S. intervention against Assad regime forces in the five-year-old Syrian civil war ‘will lead to terrible, tectonic consequences not only on the territory of this country but also in the region on the whole.’”

    Joseph restricts the “consequences” to a certain ethnicity and religion:
    “Presumably by ‘region’, Ms. Zakharova means the Middle East as commonly understood, the Arabian peninsula, Mesopotamia, trans-Jordan, Syria, the Levant, and Asia Minor. Or, conceivably, she might mean the whole Islamic world in that region, from Libya to Iran and Pakistan.”

    What if the ‘consequences’ pertained to Israel? Or more specifically, the Mossad and other deep-black forces doing the deeds?

    (In terms of “tectonic consequences” and earthquake weapons, there is a major fault-line in upper Turkey that has been slowly ‘releasing’ to the west. The next major ‘release’ is expected just to the west of, or possibly under, Byzantium. This fault is full of stored energy, and just waiting to go. “Tectonic consequences”?)

    • goshawks on October 7, 2016 at 7:47 pm

      Oops, “just to the east of, or possibly under, Byzantium.”

  5. TRM on October 7, 2016 at 6:17 pm

    2 words for you to explain the “tectonic” part of the comment:

    Canary Islands

    Send a tidal wave 50-200 meters high with 8 hours warning into the eastern seaboard of the USSA. All with complete “plausible deniability” because this is just a natural event after all.

    • WalkingDead on October 8, 2016 at 8:54 pm

      Three more words for that “tectonic” comment:

      Yellowstone Super volcano

      Crack off one of those tectonic weapons there and same results; “plausible deniability” and “natural event”, no more USSA after the dust settles and world wide colder temperatures for a few years. Much cheaper and far less deadly than nuclear war. You could also use Tesla’s approach and create a resonance in that area via scalar technology and crack it open.
      Russia’s woodpecker grid is still up and running.

  6. Sandygirl on October 7, 2016 at 1:57 pm

    Russia is practicing radiation, chemical and biological drills with 40 million people. Here in the u.s. we have FEMA camps and coffins. When hurricane Katrina happened it took 4 days to even get water to people. The rescue workers were scared to go in after being told they would be attacked. We are not allowed to help out our neighbors without getting a permit first. Fema has it’s rules to follow. What is wrong with this picture?

  7. Christopher Stahnke on October 7, 2016 at 12:19 pm

    I’m skeptical on the use of an earthquake weapon though I agree that it is technically possible and likely exists in some form. Just don’t think it was used in Haiti or Japan from reading my own tea-leaves which is all most of us can do since most information is not reliable.

    The advantage Russia has in this struggle comes down some very basic issues. First, the Moscow is more united and Putin has establishes a stron State apparatus which give him and his circle control, mainly, of foreign policy. In contrast, Washington is split in many pieces not just two or three but I count at least five factions all working on their own agendas. Obama himself can only mediate between those factions and try to nudge things in his direction when he has to. In short, he is mainly allowing each of those factions to pursue their own policies in their own agencies and areas of influence including the media. The Russians know this and are acting accordingly and will succeed no matter what happens because of that.

    If Clinton is elected, however, she brings may be able to cobble together a hawkish National Security State with a coherent agenda that may resemble John Foster Dulles’ “brinksmanship” policy including all the stage illusions.

    • zendogbreath on October 8, 2016 at 3:35 pm

      take a closer look at some older tea leaves as well. it’s an old weapon and now much more transferable. haarp had more than a few uses. geoengineered earthquakes was one of them. the newer iterations of haarp are much smaller and much more powerful. tell-tale marks give it away too. take a look over all the earthquake depths of about 10km. 9.5km has some zingers. there are not many of them since depths range much farther than this small zone.

      • zendogbreath on October 9, 2016 at 7:05 am

        To clarify: almost nada but the manmade quakes have epicenters around 9.5 km. Look that list up. Then compare it to a list of all quakes witj their respective depths.

  8. old97polarcat on October 7, 2016 at 12:01 pm

    What about a Russian disclosure of the existence of a US tectonic weapon? If a dossier were produced that had sufficient evidence, and showed that the US had deployed the weapon, that might be a pretty big bargaining chip, too. Of course, MSM would embargo such a story, but still..

  9. Neru on October 7, 2016 at 11:26 am

    I never read it other wise then as geoengineering warfare. I allready wrote in one of these comment sections the risk of parts of the USA would find themselves like the atlantis tale on the bottom of the ocean.

    If one zoomes out of the Syrian war problems to a large oversight view what can we create of all those reality tip bits? Russia and it’s allies going for a society with individuals in a multipolar world. USA and serving fiefdoms striving the direct opposite by installing programmed borg drones in service of a unipolar (AI) world depleting recourses of that world.

    Choose your side which you feel most comfortable with.

    Seems very much the same conundrum of a very paleoancient tale allready told with lots of toys restored from that era to boot!

    • goshawks on October 7, 2016 at 7:55 pm

      Yep. Well said!

  10. marcos toledo on October 7, 2016 at 10:52 am

    In what parallel universe does the CSA exist when General U.S. Grant was besieging the city of Vicksburg. He cut off food supplies to that city to force it’s surrender if Assad is a war criminal for what he is doing in the Syrian Civil War what would that make Lincoln prosecution of the American Civil War.

    • T.J. on October 8, 2016 at 1:46 pm

      Well said, Marcos. Descendents of U.S. Civil War Confederate veterans have told me these stories, which they know all too well.

      While in Damascus, Syrian politicos & mil/intel officials very much appreciated my stories about what Lincoln, Grant & Sherman had done. For some reason, U.S. politicos do not appreciate the analogies. ;-).

  11. loisg on October 7, 2016 at 10:31 am

    It seems time that the Syrian war has become another proxy conflict between the US and Russia, and is playing out as expected as per the previous ones. Russia is defending Assad, and the US is defending the rebels, with both sides complaining about the actions of the other. I wish the US would stop this nonsense, so they are equally to blame. But what I don’t understand is why would Russia up the ante so much in response to the US complaining and moping in the corner? That hardly seems like a time to threaten ‘tectonic consequences’ , or do they want a bigger conflict with the US? Why are they performing war games in their own country which involved about a third of their population? This is just insane. The US needs to get out of there.

    • Lost on October 7, 2016 at 4:33 pm

      The US is not the main party that wants a weak, wrecked, Syria. This other party has very sophisticated weapons and the Russians know this.

      • loisg on October 7, 2016 at 6:02 pm

        So, if this other party is who I think it is, then do you think that Russia is actually making some of these threats towards them? Because I could see Russia attacking that party before going after the US. It would be a huge mistake on their part, but I could see them doing it.

      • T.J. on October 8, 2016 at 2:04 pm

        Lost & LoisG: Israel & Bibi know all too well that Russia intends to stabilize Assad & Syria — despite Rotten-Child predilections.

        Although Bibi & Co. have been aiding IS/Daesh & other al-Qaeda boys & girls in Syria, since October 2015, Bibi has also been negotiating a national & regional security deal with Russia for Israel & the Mideast — despite Rotten-Child opposition.

        Of course, Rotten-Child & Co. still have great influence in EU, U.S. & elsewhere; and they will continue the chaos, conflict & confusion for as long as they can — even if they can no longer start WW3 (which BRICS-aligned nations will prevent).

        The wild card is still the Third Level that Joseph discusses in his 9/11-related book. For a long time, Rotten-Child/Khazarian & Fascist International factions cooperated. Now, they are often at cross purposes (e.g., on Syria & Mideast).

  12. Vomito Blanco on October 7, 2016 at 10:17 am

    This is probably a stretch but there is a Syria, Virginia that is not that far from the premiere intelligence community bunker also in Virginia below Peters Mountain. Both town and bunker are in proximity to the 2011 epicenter of the unusual Mineral, Virginia earthquake. I would imagine the Peters Mountain bunker is massive and runs for miles under the Shenandoah mountain range. Maybe the Russians are warning the DC nazis that they won’t be able to escape the bloody mayhem in their bunker. Makes the 2011 quake more curious.

    The other thing to ponder: who is more vulnerable in an earthquake war? Only Russia’s sparsely populated Pacific coast is really in danger where as the heavily populated US west coast and central plains are highly vulnerable. Summation: Russia wins the earthquake war. The US would have to retaliate with meteors to even the playing field.

    • Vomito Blanco on October 7, 2016 at 10:23 am

      There is also a Damascus, Virginia as well as a Damascus, California not far from San Francisco. Numerous government bunkers in that area. But this is really stretching it.

    • Vomito Blanco on October 7, 2016 at 10:37 am

    • E. Grogan on October 7, 2016 at 5:05 pm

      Damascus CA is actually not near S.F. it’s on the east side of CA, way past Sacramento and not far from Grass Valley and Tahoe on CA border with Nevada. It’s in the Gold Country.

  13. augenguy on October 7, 2016 at 9:43 am

    It should be joted that days after the “tectonic” comment, “unusual” earthquake warnings were issued in SoCal. Interesting timing.

  14. WalkingDead on October 7, 2016 at 7:59 am

    Given the fact that we have went Fracking crazy over the last two decades with the resulting mini quakes accompanying this particular type of oil harvesting, would it be too surprising to believe we have set ourselves up for an attack of this type. Fracturing the earth beneath your feet doesn’t seem like a really bright idea.

  15. ShiningOne on October 7, 2016 at 7:36 am

    Speaking of geoengineering, how about that Hurricane Matthew? Progressive media pushing global warming, Shepherd Smith telling people their children are going to die if they don’t evacuate, it just goes on and on. But really… would it surprise you?

    • WalkingDead on October 7, 2016 at 7:52 am

      I’m enjoying Hurricane Matthew right now. One could comment on it’s sudden northern turn right over Haiti, Cuba, the Bahamas, and right up the side of the east coast and its projected track to turn right around and go back down. Steering such storms has been studied by the military who wants to “own the weather”. It would be no surprise that other nations have done their own studies on this also.

  16. DanaThomas on October 7, 2016 at 6:02 am

    There is no doubt that this choice of wording was VERY deliberate, and that there are Russian officials who are considerably better versed in the English language than their counterparts on the banks of the Potomac.
    We might be seeing a sudden flurry of interest in that geoengineering weapons ban that was talked about some years ago…
