English Russia post about Missile Museum

"There is a unique museum located on the territory of the former Soviet Union, and to be more precise, in Ukraine. In the museum there are displayed many exhibits of Strategic Missile Forces. There is no other museum of such kind in the whole world; except one that is located in the USA, but tourists are not allowed there and all the guided tours are prohibited. On this photo you can see intercontinental ballistic missile CC-18 “Satan.”"

These are some great looking missiles. And it is nice to see a museum where one can touch everything, and few parts appear off limits. Certainly this is not as safe for the public, or for the exhibits, but comon who doesn't want to press the launch button or peek inside a bell nozzle?

I can't help fall victim to the simple charms of Russian rocketry. These rockets are robust, and often feature an open truss or blank interstage area. That is just a great thing to have in a rocket. So seldom does one see this in rockets anymore, and even in the hobby it is only found in a few Russian scale kits and the older American kits such as the Wacs and Aerobees.

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

Is it really possible? Yes. Is it possible to do this without the world's several million scientists and many millions of amateurs noticing? Nope.

Let me clarify, the proposed technology discussed above may very well be impossible (using radio waves or EM spectrum energy to cause an earthquake) or at least impractical on human scales, but obviously humans can shake the earth using nuclear weapons. But any such attempt, even something subtle and high tech as proposed above, would be obvious to many observers and would also require thousands of participants. Secrets get out no matter what, that is the ultimate reality that kills conspiracy theories. If the government cant cover up a few guys breaking into a hotel... how are they going to cover up a moon landing hoax or an assasination conspiracy?

It is human nature to do the following:

1.) Search for meaning in an often cold and random universe, particularly when very bad or very good things happen. No one wants their life subject to luck and fate.

2.) Confuse the scale of effect with the scale of causation. In other words, people want big things to be caused by big drivers. We dont want Lady Di to have been killed by bad driving and the lack of seatbelt, we want it to be a conspiracy involving some cause equal to the effect. Same for assasinations, and earthquakes I suppose.
