As we wrote thousands of flights are cancelled and millions of travellers are stranded in airports because of the volcanic ash cloud spreading across the Europe. The volcanic ash cloud is starting to cause serious economic problems for some airlines and food importers and even postal deliveries. The economic loss will make hundreds of millions dollars.
Do you think this is a natural disaster that can ground all flights or a next conspiracy to prevent 9-11?
False Flag Alert?
Volcanic Ash is supposedly to blame for grounding a significant portion of Air Travel throughout Europe.
All flights in and out of the UK and several other European countries have been suspended as ash from a volcanic eruption in Iceland moves south. Up to 4,000 flights are being cancelled with airspace closed in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark among others.
The UK’s air traffic control service (Nats) said no flights would be allowed in UK airspace until at least 0700 BST on Friday amid fears of engine damage.The airspace restriction was the worst in living memory, a spokesman said. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/8621407.stm
It is an eerie reminder of 9-11 in the U.S., when all commercial planes were grounded. For now the skies are quiet in most of the U.K., except for maybe a fighter jet or two.
One of the largest NATO military drills is being held today, rather conveniently while volcanic ash is keeping all commercial aircraft on the ground around the U.K. That won’t stop one of the world’s largest military exercises from going forward though.
A large fleet of warships, submarines, frigates and aircraft from 10 NATO countries and one non-NATO member has congregated here to take part in the ‘Brilliant Mariner’ maritime exercise in the Baltic Sea.
The 10-day long multi-nation naval drill began here on April 12, 2010. It will engage the NATO forces to respond to a number of challenges, including asymmetric or terrorist threats, maritime security operations and embargo operations “in a realistic scenario,” a NATO statement said.
The exercise will see participation of 6,500 defence personnel, 31 warships, 28 aircraft and four submarines that will operate in the Northern European waters and airspace.
The French Navy, which is commanding the maritime exercise, has sent 10 of its warships and 30 aircraft.
Its naval fleet includes aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle, amphibious warship Mistral, under-attack submarine Emeraude along with other frigates. The aviation fleet includes Mirage fighter aircraft, Hawkeye airborne early warning aircraft and Atlantique 2 maritime patrol aircraft along with other planes.
The countries participating in the huge military drill are Germany, Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, USA, France, Norway, Netherlands, Poland, United Kingdom and Sweden. Sweden, a non-NATO member, is taking part in the exercise as a ‘Partnership for Peace’ country.http://www.brahmand.com/news/NATO-countries-begin-Brilliant-Mariner-naval-exercise/3645/1/10.html
Things are not so quiet in Israel either!
Israel is sending a strong message to Iran, US and the world as it readies itself to undertake military drills to strike Iran’s nuclear sites if it gets green signal in future from its government. Israeli military will prepare itself to launch massive aerial attack to bomb nuclear sites in Iran. The drill also includes civil defense drill to prepare civilians (emphasis mine) for the retaliatory attack from Iran too.
No doubt Israel is making it clear to Iran that in case of any eventuality they can bomb more than dozen nuclear sites and moving convoys in a matter of few days or hours. The on-the-ground preparations, training exercises involving F15 and F16 jets, tankers and helicopters indicate that threat can translate into action.
Israel will need consent from US to carry out such a big operation. Without US intelligence input it would be impossible to get all information about exact locations of nuclear facilities. But by carrying out this drill Israel is showing a kind of preparedness to take on Iran alone. The fate of Middle East crisis now depends on new Israeli government, Obama and Iran. http://trendsupdates.com/israeli-military-drill-to-strike-iran%E2%80%99s-nuclear-sites/
In the U.S. Northcom, Southcom, FEMA, NORAD and other U.S. government agencies were running drills before 9-11, and before the recent Haiti quake just to name a few.

During a conference, Obama said in response to a question on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that such disputes are “costing us significantly in terms of both blood and treasure.” http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3876404,00.html
We can only hope Obama does a better job.
While it never made the national news, the U.S. and South Korea were playing war games this week with live ammo:
RODRIGUEZ RANGE, South Korea — The U.S. and South Korean militaries on Thursday staged a large live-fire exercise 15 miles south of the Demilitarized Zone, but officials insisted the event was not meant as a warning to North Korea.
“There is not a message we are sending to any particular audience,” said Col. Thomas C. Graves, commander of the 2nd Infantry Division’s 1st Heavy Brigade Combat Team. “The message that comes out of this is the strength of the [U.S.-South Korean] alliance across the board.
“We are doing an integration at the combined arms level — at the tactical level — that probably isn’t seen anywhere else in the world. How the North reacts to this is certainly not something I can predict.”
The exercise came on the birthday of Kim Il Sung, North Korea’s founder and the father of current leader Kim Jong Il — and a day after the Korean Central News Agency reported the recent staging of a major military exercise in North Korea to mark the anniversary. http://www.stripes.com/article.asp?section=104&article=69377
That’s three major military drills going on at the same time in the same week. This week also saw another huge earthquake, a cyclone, major flooding and volcanic eruptions.
Convenient timing, would you say?
Conspiracy theory is a term that originally was a neutral descriptor for any claim of civil, criminal or political conspiracy. To many, conspiracy theories are just human nature.
It is hard to believe any conspiracy involving more than a handful of people but the fact remains that there have been conspiracies in our world, proven and not made up, that involved many hundreds of people. It’s not a matter of opinion, it’s a matter of fact.
Lets not forget all of the thousands of conspiracies out of Wall Street like Bernie Madoff and many others to commit fraud and extortion, among many crimes of conspiracy. USA Today reports that over 75% of personal ads in the paper and on craigslist are married couples posing as single for a one night affair.
