Russian MP Blames Meteor Shower On US Secret Arms Test
The Voice of Russia ^ | February 15, 2013

Posted on 02/15/2013 8:06:35 AM PST by Fennie

Russia's controversial Liberal leader, Vladimir Zhirinovsky, has blamed Americans for today's meteorite scare, local media report.

"Those were not meteorites, it was Americans testing their new weapons," Mr. Zhirinovsky confessed to journalists. "[US Secretary of State] John Kerry wanted to warn [Russia's Foreign Minister] Lavrov on Monday, he was looking for Lavrov, and Lavrov was on a trip. He meant to warn Lavrov about a provocation against Russia," he said.

Good ole Vlad. If he isn’t plotting to seize “Alyeska” he’s saving former Soviet glory from the capitalists.

Just a little payback for those missles they launched at us last year from the Pacific.

Ruskies are paranoid by trade. Obama blabbing his mouth about ‘flexibility’ doesn’t help anything.

Yes.

We’ve harnessed the power of the Comet Empire. Soon we shall bombard Russia with our planetoid bombs. The world shall tremble before us.

Seriously, I wonder how many crates of vodka ol’ Vlad is drinking everyday?

Lots of sci-fi books have used the idea of high speed objects from space as weapons. I doubt we would do it because throwing giant rocks at our enemies, regardless of how effective it might be, wouldn’t cost enough for our military to consider it or Congress to approve it.

It would have been awesome, however, if on September 12, 2001 giant boulders flying at 60,000 MPH had destroyed the 50 largest hut groupings in Afghanistan followed by President Bush going to the U.N. and asking “Who’s up for round 2?”

Meanwhile, it would appear that CNN finally got their marching orders from the White House. They just interviewed a dem congressman who is a rocket scientist and ‘nuclear arms expert’. They seem to be clumsily trying to tie this into a need to unilaterally disarm our nuclear weapons....cause ya know..with meteors falling from sky, this could spark nuclear war by accident.

I predict by the end of day..this will be the big push from the American Pravda media. You heard it here first....lol

This is insanity!

Every Progressive talking head on cable news knows that asteroid and meteor activity and winter blizzards are caused by global warming.

CNN Anchor Deborah Feyerick Questions Whether Global Warming To Blame For Asteroid

“Talk about something else that’s falling from the sky and that is an asteroid. What’s coming our way? Is this an effect of, perhaps, of global warming, or is this just some meteoric occasion?” CNN’s Deborah Feyerick asked Bill “The Science Guy” Nye, head of the Planetary Society, in a Saturday segment.

Feyerick, who had earlier quizzed Nye about the possible link between global warming and the weekend snowstorm, was referring to Asteroid 2012 DA14, which will whiz within 17,000 miles or so of Earth on Feb 15. The asteroid’s relatively close trajectory on its latest pass of Earth has been extensively covered in recent weeks.

And worse,‘The Science Guy’ didn’t evenly remotely challenge the CNN host when she suggests that an asteroid approaching earth is the result of glowbull warming... in fact, he said something incredibly stupid like "IT’S ALL SCIENCE! And, by the way, meteor and meteorology come from the same root, so they are related." What a maroon!

Daniel 8:10 - And it [the little horn which symbolizes the Antichrist] grew great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them.

While I doubt what happened today was from the weaponization of meteors, it will happen eventually.

The Russians don’t need to worry. These meteors are considered to be assault meteors, and Obama will ban them by executive order. (Sarcasm off.)

If only Vlad had been in Chelyabinsk he could have eliminated the meteor with his atomic ray gun.

By sheer chance I actually met this loon in 1991. At that time he was the head of the new "Liberal Democratic Party of Russia" and was running (came in third) for President of the Russian Republic (still then part of the Soviet Union). That he's still in the Duma and has the post of Vice Chairman (had to look that up) is startling.

But no more startling, I guess, than the fact that Shirley Jackson Lee is a member of Congress. In terms of crazed, stupid, and dangerous elected politicians them Ruskies got nothin' on us!

If you knew anything about missiles it would seem more than just a little out the realm of possibility. It’s up there with the CNN ditz who thought that “global warming” caused the 2011/DA14 asteroid.

Short answer: He is nuts.

I agree. 50 years ago, this would have caused World War III. IIRC this area is not too far from where the Russian ICBM’s are based....
