Biden Starting SECOND War Front - First Syria, now Ukraine: NATO Mortars being fired at CIVILIANS in Ukraine; Troops and armor moving by train toward Russia Border

Just one day after (illegitimate) U.S. President Joe Biden resumed air strikes against Syria, we are receiving information that war trouble is brewing again in eastern Ukraine.

NATO MORTARS are being fired against civilians in Luhansk, Ukraine only this time, Russia is moving marked Russian military radar into the area.  No more unmarked "little green men" now it's open Russian army.  Direct war with Russia looms - again, thanks to the Biden corrupt presidency.

First, a little background.  Ukraine used to be part of the Soviet Union.  Back in the 1950's then Soviet Chairman Kruschev "gave" the land area peninsula called "Crimea" to Ukraine.  For at least 300 years prior to that moment, it was, throughout ALL of recorded history, known as "Russian Crimea."

The people who live there, speak Russian.  Their family histories are Russian. In 1950-something, Kruschev "gave it" away to Ukraine.

NATO EXPANSIONISM

Back in 2012 Europe was trying to convince Ukraine to leave Russia's "sphere of influence" and join the west.  Europe and the United States had been chipping away at Russia since the collapse of the Soviet Union, after the USA promised Soviet General Secretary Gorbachev that "NATO would not move one inch east" back in 1991-92 after the Soviet Union collapsed.

First, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania went with Europe/USA and joined with NATO.  Then Poland went.

The Russians watched, helplessly for years, as these countries allowed NATO to build bases and airfields . . . all closer and closer to Russia.  The joke became "Russia wants war, look how close they put their COUNTRY to our bases"

With the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, Russia found itself with massive problems at home, and they needed time to fix those problems at home.  Russia simply didn't have the resources, the military might, or the money, to try to stop NATO from encroaching closer and closer.

Fast-forward to about 2010, getting Ukraine to voluntarily align with Europe offered big military advantages to the west.  It would be the final country to come into NATO, and allow NATO first-strike weapons to be placed there.   Such weapons could nuke Moscow in less than five minutes.  More importantly, they could reach Russia's nuclear arsenal within about 8 minutes.  That would make a decapitation strike by NATO, an actual possibility.  NATO could shoot and destroy Russian nuclear deterrents faster than Russia could react to protect itself.  In one fell swoop, Russia could be conquered.

As Europe enticed Ukraine to join with the west, Ukrainian President Victor Yanukovich proved to be troublesome.  He was favorable to Russia.   He grew up with Russia as an ally and protector.  He was not convinced that moving away from Russia's sphere of influence would be a good thing for Ukraine.  After years of negotiations, Yanukovich DECLINED Europe's offers and chose to remain aligned with Russia.

Well, that just wouldn't do.

The US and Europe had spent vast sums of money in Ukraine to woo the country.  They weren't going to just walk away.

So Europe and America did, what Europe and America always do: They began funding an insurgency inside Ukraine.  Creating civil unrest.  Protests, then riots.  Later, escalations to armed attacks within Ukraine, all to destabilize President Yanukovich and his government.

At its apex, the protests and riots turned very ugly.  Numerous people were shot, blamed on government forces, but in reality, by European/American Snipers who shot people on both sides to cause an eruption of violence! 

When horrific violence finally erupted, Yanukovich fled the country to Russia.  Europe and America backed a replacement government and Ukraine ostensibly came into the European/American Sphere of Influence.

For Russia, this was just too blatant; too overt, and too close to home.   It could not be tolerated by Russia. 

RUSSIA UPS-THE-ANTE

So Russia started fomenting trouble for the American/Europe-installed government of Ukraine.   Russia began in the Crimea which had an almost 100% Russian-speaking population.

Crimeans, seeing what Europe and the US did to the government in Kiev, decided they wanted to return their land home to Russia.  They began a movement to secede from Ukraine and return to Russia.   Kiev wouldn't allow it and sent troops to quell the movement.   

Fighting erupted between the people of Crimea and Ukraine forces loyal to the US/Europe Puppet government in Kiev.

Then, quite suddenly, "Little Green Men" began appearing in Crimea.   Troops in military uniforms . . . with no flags or patches identifying whose army they were!

Those "Little Green men" began fighting against the Ukraine Army.  While that was taking place, Russia exercised a Treaty option for their naval base on Crimea.  That option allowed Russia to station "a maximum of 25,000 Russian military personnel" at the base.

Quite rapidly, the base was filled and then, they all moved at once.  Ukraine soldiers were immediately overwhelmed and surrendered.

At that moment, Crimea was effectively back under Russia control.  But the world, led by Europe and the US, called it an invasion.  They screamed that Russia had to give Crimea back to Ukraine.  Russia said they would hold a Referendum and ask the people of Crimea to vote.  The US and Europe did not accept this. (Article continues below the ad)

Ad

The vote took place.  The people of Crimea voted overwhelmingly to re-join Russia.  The Russian Duma (i.e. Congress) accepted the election results and passed legislation accepting Crimea back into Russia.

The world, again, led by Europe and the US, called this an illegal annexation.  Sanctions were imposed on Russia.  They failed.

Ukraine began moving troops on land, and naval vessels by sea, toward Crimea.  With that, people in two eastern provinces of Ukraine, Luhansk and Donetsk, started demanding a referendum so they, too, could rejoin Russia.

Faced with two more large areas trying to leave, Ukraine had to choose whether to try recovering Crimea by force, or stopping the departure of Luhansk and Donetsk.  Ukraine chose to try keeping the two new provinces that were trying to leave.

Those two provinces then held their own vote and the outcome was LEAVE.  They declared themselves the Donetsk People's Republic ("DPR") and that's when Ukraine's army was ordered to attack.

Shortly thereafter, more "Little Green Men" began appearing, backing the forces of Luhansk and Donetsk.  The Ukrainians sought help from NATO.  They were turned down.

Fighting took place throughout Luhansk and Donetsk for years, but always ended in a stalemate for Ukraine.

Then Donald Trump became US President, and all the troubles in Ukraine . . . stopped.

It's been relatively quiet for the past four years.

Two short months ago, Joe Biden slithered his way into the US Presidency and this week, the quiet in Ukraine has been shattered.

NATO MORTARS FIRED AGAINST CIVILIANS

The Ukrainian Armed Forces used 60-mm munitions and shelled Elenovka [a settlement in the DPR].   This woman, who lives in the DPR, found this exploded Mortar in her garden:

These mortars comply with NATO standards and are in service with the alliance countries. This is reported by the Joint Control and Coordination Commission of the DPR.

It is important to note that by shelling Elenovka, the government in Kiev hinders the work of the humanitarian missions of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the United Nations (UN).

The ICRC and the UN deliver humanitarian aid to the DPR and LPR just through the Elenovka checkpoint.

As was stated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the DPR, Kiev warned representatives of the ICRC and the UN a few days ago that they would not be able to deliver their goods through Elenovka, due to the tense situation in the area.

At the same time, there were several years without attacks in the area of Elenovka until yesterday evening. Local residents conclude that the Ukrainian leadership is deliberately going to aggravate the situation in Donetsk People's Republic.

Biden got into the US Presidency, and suddenly a war that was building in eastern Ukraine under Obama, but had stopped under Trump, is now starting again.

And the planning is already being carried out to escalate this into actual, hot, warfare, complete with Armor, artillery, and massive numbers of troops.   Military trains are already traveling through Ukraine, toward the Russian Border areas of Luhansk and Donetsk (DPR).  Here's video from yesterday:

NO MORE "LITTLE GREEN MEN"

This is a gigantic signal from Russia that things are not going to go the way they went previously.  For the first time in  Donbass, the Russian #51U6 Kasta-2E1 radar station was officially captured on camera, in the open, on actual DPR territory, which they tried to disguise in a hurry by draping a Ukraine flag. 

 If you zoom-out using the MINUS sign on the map, you will see precisely where this radar is set up; well inside Ukraine, in the Luhansk/Donetsk border area, a very considerable distance from the vast Russia border.   

Map:

The Kasta 2E (NATO: Flat Face E, alternative name Casta 2E) is a modern Russian radar system.

The development of the Kasta 2E surveillance radars was initiated in the former Soviet Union. Its primary objective is to overcome deficiencies or to satisfy the demand in low-level surveillance.

The Kasta 2E1 system uses two antennas and consists of two vehicles:

    one truck carries the antenna and its peripheral equipment
    another truck operates as command post vehicle and on a trailer unit, the external power supply is installed

The Kasta 2E2 system uses one antenna and consists of three vehicles:

    one truck carries the antenna and its peripheral equipment
    another truck operates as command post vehicle
    a diesel-electric power plant is mounted another truck and two single-axle trailers carry auxiliary equipment

Both radar types can be triggered with either equal or opposed phases. The both antenna types can optionally be mounted on a standard 50 m pylon. This arrangement causes a displacement of the radar horizon which in turn increases the detection altitude up to 6 km at a distance of 150 km.

This radar is not unmarked.  It is Russian military, complete with Russian flag painted on the sides, and official Russian Army markings.

Russia isn't playing anonymous Little Green Men anymore, they're now out in the open.  This is a blunt signal they intend to defend the DPR; by force of the Russian Army.

If the US and Europe try pulling the same stunts they have in the past, it will now mean direct war with Russia.

That, is what Joe Biden and his failed advisors are conjuring up.  Direct war with Russia.  In Europe . . . and as we saw yesterday with US Air Strikes in Syria (Story HERE), perhaps war with Russia in Syria too.

These developments are NOT being reported in the mass media within either the USA or Europe.   If war begins, it will arrive like a lightning strike and the general public in both the US and Europe will be caught completely unaware . . .

. . . and also unaware that it was their own governments that sparked the whole thing.

Get right with God, folks.  If this breaks out, it will get very bad, very fast . . . and it is OUR country that is to blame.

Biden: ‘We will stand with Ukraine’ against Russia on Crimea
Al Jazeera
2-3 minutes

Seven years after Russia annexed Crimea, Biden says the US will ‘never recognise’ the move.

US President Joe Biden has said it’s a “simple truth” that “Crimea is Ukraine” and promised the United States “will never recognise Russia’s purported annexation of the peninsula”.

Russia’s actions on February 26, 2014 violated international law and “the sovereignty and territorial integrity of its neighbor Ukraine when it invaded Crimea”, Biden said in a statement on Friday.

Seven years ago, Russia sent troops into Ukraine in violation of the 1995 Black Sea agreement, seized ships from Ukraine’s navy and surrounded and took over military bases.

As the Russian military controlled the peninsula, a political status referendum was held on March 16, 2014 in which an overwhelming majority of voters – 96.7 percent – voted to rejoin Russia, a move Western leaders declared illegal.

Then-President Barack Obama imposed sanctions on a number of senior Russian officials and businessmen connected to Russian President Vladimir Putin, as well as Russian state companies.

The annexation of Crimea instigated the most serious rift between Washington and Moscow since the Cold War.

Mike Pompeo, the former Secretary of State under Donald Trump, said the US would not recognise Russia’s annexation of Ukraine. It is unknown publicly what Trump said in personal meetings with Putin, and it was widely reported that he told G7 leaders in Quebec, Canada in 2018 that Crimea is Russian because everyone speaks Russian there.

Trump blamed Obama for the annexation because Obama failed to prevent it.

Biden said the US would continue to support Ukraine against Russian aggression. Russia supports separatist troops in Ukraine’s eastern Donbass region.

Audio: American Airlines pilot radios ‘long cylindrical’ UFO over NM; Airline confirms and now the FBI may be involved

An American Airlines pilot was recorded on Sunday during a flight over New Mexico when he reported via radio an unidentified “long cylindrical object” flying over the airplane. The airline confirmed the transmission and pointed to the FBI, who says it’s “aware” of the incident. “I hate to say this but it looked like a long cylindrical object that almost looked like a cruise-missile type of thing. Moving really fast and went right over the top of us,” the pilot added.

Radioactive fish caught near Fukushima have five times the permitted radiation levels of highly dangerous cesium

A black rockfish caught near Fukushima by fishermen had caesium levels five times above the government’s permitted levels.

Radioactive cesium five times above permitted levels in Japan has been detected in black rockfish caught in northeastern Fukushima Prefecture, according to a Feb. 22 announcement by a local fishing association.

Some 500 becquerels per kilogram of cesium was found in black rockfish caught at a depth of 24 meters about 8.8 kilometers off the town of Shinchi, exceeding the national standard level of 100 becquerels per kilogram.

The Fukushima Prefectural Federation of Fisheries Co-operative Associations has since halted distribution of the fish until it can confirm their safety.

The voluntary suspension of seafood shipments by the fishing body marks the first time since October 2019, when 53 becquerels per kilogram of radioactive cesium was detected in a white sea perch, exceeding the standard level set by the group at 50 becquerels per kilogram.

The fishing association has been conducting test fishing since June 2012 on a limited scale. After shipping restrictions on common skate were lifted in February 2020, shipment of all fish was permitted. The fishing body aims to resume full fishing operations in April.

It’s been 10 years since Japan’s worst nuclear accident, which was triggered by the most powerful earthquake ever recorded in the country and a massive tsunami that wiped out everything in its path.

Yet the aftershocks from the devastating March 11 disaster continue to rattle these parts — the most recent occurring only a week ago, when a M7.3 earthquake hit on February 13, 2021.

It is not clear whether the radioactive substances in the offshore fish have been affected by the recent earthquake in the sea near Fukushima. But one thing is clear… Leaks and pressure drops have been reported in containment vessels after the quake.
Increase in radiation

The company’s errors have immediate implications, as monitoring equipment installed at sea off the plant detected a small increase in highly radioactive caesium in the days after the earthquake, indicating that water had indeed escaped from the site and was dispersing into the ocean.

And that coincided with the announcement that a black rockfish caught off the prefecture by a fishermen’s collective had caesium levels five times above the government’s permitted levels.

The revelations surrounding TEPCO’s latest problems is unlikely to reassure the public that produce from much of northeast Japan is safe to buy and eat.

Fukushima’s earthquake problems

The fallout from that incident was worsened after a serious earthquake on February 13 shook northeast Japan, including the Fukushima nuclear plant.

Seismologists said the magnitude 7.3 tremor was the largest to strike Japan since April 2011 and was actually the latest aftershock from the Great East Japan Earthquake nearly a decade ago.

TEPCO admitted a short while later that seismometers installed in two of the reactor buildings broke down last year and had not been repaired.

In addition, a report to the NRA confirmed that the earthquake caused radioactive water to slosh over the edges of containment tanks at the site, while the water level around two of the reactors has fallen.

That could indicate that the tremor enlarged existing fissures in the surrounding concrete or created new ones, enabling the escape of water that is needed to keep the reactors cool and prevent the release of more radioactivity into the atmosphere.

The incident “raised doubts” about TEPCO’s “fitness to operate nuclear power plants. Meanwhile, the utility must thoroughly reexamine every conceivable issue and raise its workers’ safety awareness to prevent missteps, once and for all.
Fukushima radioactive water problem

And how do you remove a million tonnes of contaminated water? All of the water that touches the highly radioactive molten fuel also becomes contaminated.

Although the Advanced Liquid Processing System (ALPS) removes more than 60 different types of radioactive materials from the water, it doesn’t completely purify it. The radioactive element, tritium, remains inside all of the stored water, albeit at “low” levels

Currently, 1.2 million tonnes of contaminated water is stored in more than 1,000 tanks spanning the entire power plant facility. But by the end of next year, the tanks and the site will be full.

The Japanese government is now weighing up what to do next. Experts have recommended disposing of it in the ocean as the most practical option as opposed to releasing it into the air.

Meanwhile, tritium water from nuclear plants is discharged all around the world… And Japan’s nuclear disaster site is still a hive of activity. TEPCO has spent the last 10 years trying to cool and stabilise the three reactors so that they can eventually start to remove the 800 tons of molten radioactive fuel debris that sits inside them.

Vatican Betrays Virgin Mary for Prophet Muhammad
Raymond Ibrahim
6-7 minutes

The same folks to bring you “Abrahamism”—the idea that Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are intricately connected—have narrowed their sights on promoting Mary, the mother of Christ, as “a Jewish, Christian and Muslim woman,” in the words of Catholic priest Fr. Gian Matteo of the Pontifical International Marian Academy. In a ten-week webinar series titled “Mary, a model for faith and life for Christianity and Islam,” the academy will seek to present Mary as a bridge between the two religions.

This may be easier said than done — at least for those still interested in facts.  For starters, the claim that Mary was a “Jewish, Christian and Muslim woman” is only two-thirds true: yes, she was a Jew by race and background; and yes, she was a Christian in that she literally birthed Christ(ianity); but she was most certainly not a Muslim — a term and religion that came into being 600 years after Mary died.

Worse, far from being the Eternal Virgin, as she is for 1.5 billion Christians of the Catholic and Orthodox variety, Islam presents Mary, the Mother of Christ, as “married” to and “copulating” with Muhammad in paradise — a depiction that would seem to sever rather than build “bridges.”

In a hadith that was deemed reliable enough to be included in the renowned Ibn Kathir’s corpus, Muhammad declared that “Allah will wed me in paradise to Mary, Daughter of Imran,” whom Muslims identify with Jesus’s mother.  (Note: The Arabic word for “marriage” (نكاح, or nikah, denotes “legal sexual relations,” connotes the “F” word, and is wholly devoid of Western, “romantic,” or Platonic connotations.)

Nor is this just some random, obscure hadith.  None other than Dr. Salem Abdul Galil — previously deputy minister of Egypt’s religious endowments for preaching — affirmed its canonicity in 2017 during a live televised Arabic-language program.  Among other biblical women (Moses’s sister and Pharaoh’s wife), “our prophet Muhammad — prayers and be upon him — will be married to Mary in paradise,” Galil said.

If few Christians today know about this Islamic claim, medieval Christians living in Muslim-occupied nations were certainly aware of it. There, Muslims regularly threw this fantasy in the face of Catholic and Orthodox Christians who venerated Mary as the “Eternal Virgin.” Thus, Eulogius of Cordoba, an indigenous Christian of Muslim-occupied Spain, once wrote, “I will not repeat the sacrilege which that impure dog [Muhammad] dared proffer about the Blessed Virgin, Queen of the World, holy mother of our venerable Lord and Savior. He claimed that in the next world he would deflower her.”

As usual, it was Eulogius’s offensive words about Muhammad — and not the latter’s offensive words about Mary and any number of other things — that had dire consequences: He, as well as many other Spanish Christians vociferously critical of Muhammad, were found guilty of speaking against Islam and publicly tortured and executed in “Golden Age” Cordoba in 859.

One expects that all of these “inconvenient” facts will be quietly passed over during the Pontifical International Marian Academy’s webinars.  And if they are raised, no doubt Christians will somehow take the blame, as almost always happens in academic settings.  As one example, after quoting Eulogius’s aforementioned lament against Muhammad’s claim of being married to Mary, John V. Tolan, a professor and member of Academia Europaea, denounced it as an “outrageous claim” of Eulogius’s own “invention.” He then railed against the martyr — not against his murderers or their prophet:

    Eulogius fabricates lies designed to shock his Christian reader.  This way, even those elements of Islam that resemble Christianity (such as reverence of Jesus and his virgin mother) are deformed and blackened, so as to prevent the Christian from admiring anything about the Muslim other.  The goal is to inspire hatred for the “oppressors[.]” … Eulogius sets out to show that the Muslim is not a friend but a potential rapist of Christ’s virgins. (Saracens: Islam in the Medieval European Imagination, p.93)

As already seen, however, it is Muhammad himself — not any “Christian polemicist” — who “fabricates lies designed to shock,” namely that Mary will be his eternal concubine.

This, incidentally, is the main problem the purveyors of Abrahamism fail to acknowledge: Islam does not treat biblical characters the way Christianity does.

Christians accept the Hebrew Bible, or Old Testament, as it is. They do not add, take away, or distort the accounts of the patriarchs that Jews also rely on. Conversely, while also relying on the figures of the Old and New Testaments — primarily for the weight of antiquity and authority attached to their names — Islam completely recasts them with different attributes that reaffirm Muhammad’s religion as the one true and final “revelation,” as opposed to Judaism and Christianity, whose biblical accounts on these figures are then seen as “distorted” because they are different from Islam’s later revisions.

Far from creating “commonalities,” it should be clear that such appropriation creates conflict. By way of analogy, imagine that you have a grandfather whom you are particularly fond of, and out of the blue, a stranger who never even met your grandfather says: “Hey, that’s my grandfather!”  Then — lest you think this stranger is somehow trying to become your friend — he adds: “And everything you thought you knew about grandpa is wrong!  Only I have his true life story.”

Would that create a “bridge” between you and this stranger trying to appropriate and recast the image of your grandfather?

News Corp and Google Agree To Global Partnership On News

Long-term Deal Involves Payment For Premium Content For Google News Showcase;

Will Yield Substantial Benefits For Journalism And Society

New York, NY (February 17, 2021) – News Corp announced today that it has agreed to an historic multi-year partnership with Google to provide trusted journalism from its news sites around the world in return for significant payments by Google.

Among the News Corp publications joining Google News Showcase will be The Wall Street Journal, Barron’s, MarketWatch, and the New York Post; in the UK: The Times and The Sunday Times, and The Sun; and in Australia a range of news platforms, including The Australian, news.com.au, Sky News, and multiple metropolitan and local titles.

The landmark three-year agreement also includes the development of a subscription platform, the sharing of ad revenue via Google’s ad technology services, the cultivation of audio journalism and meaningful investments in innovative video journalism by YouTube.

Robert Thomson, Chief Executive of News Corp, said that the deal would have “a positive impact on journalism around the globe as we have firmly established that there should be a premium for premium journalism.

“I would like to thank Sundar Pichai and his team at Google who have shown a thoughtful commitment to journalism that will resonate in every country. This has been a passionate cause for our company for well over a decade and I am gratified that the terms of trade are changing, not just for News Corp, but for every publisher.

“The deal simply would not have been possible without the fervent, unstinting support of Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch, and the News Corp Board. For many years, we were accused of tilting at tech windmills, but what was a solitary campaign, a quixotic quest, has become a movement, and both journalism and society will be enhanced.

“Particular thanks are certainly due to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission’s Rod Sims and his able team, along with the Australian Prime Minister, Scott Morrison, and Treasurer Josh Frydenberg, who have stood firm for their country and for journalism.”

'STUNNING ADMISSION' Pentagon admits it has been testing wreckage from UFO crashes & findings may ‘change our lives forever,’ expert says

THE Pentagon has admitted to holding and testing wreckage from UFO crashes in a bombshell Freedom of Information letter, shared with The Sun.

Researcher Anthony Bragalia wrote to the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) requesting details of all UFO material, which they hold and results of any tests they had been carrying out on it.

He wrote: "This could include physical debris recovered by personnel of the Department of Defense as residue, flotsam, shot-off material or crashed material from UAPS [unidentified aerial phenomenon] or unidentified flying objects."

In the response, shared with The Sun, the DIA released 154 pages of test results that includes reports on a mysterious "memory" metal called Nitinol, which remembers its original shape when folded.

Bragalia said it was a "stunning admission" from the US government and the documents reveal that some of the retrieved debris possesses "extraordinary capabilities" including the potential to make things invisible or even slow down the speed of light.

He told The Sun: "The Pentagon has admitted to holding and testing anomalous debris from UFOs.

East Coast Alert: 602 Earthquakes on La Palma - Could Cause TSUNAMI Wipe-out of Entire US East Coast
World Hal Turner   27 December 2020


Just when you thought 2020 couldn't get any worse . . . the tiny volcanic Island of La Palma, a part of the Canary Islands off the west coast of Africa, has experienced 602 earthquakes in the past FOUR DAYS.

There is the very real possibility that a portion of the island will slide into the Atlantic, causing a "mega-tsunami."

The entire western ridge of the island is destabilized from countless volcanic eruptions and earthquakes over decades. The steep angle of elevation of the land makes it ripe for a landslide; into the Atlantic Ocean.

If that happens, about 500 Cubic KILOMETERS of rock and dirt will hit the ocean at about 200 MPH, causing an Atlantic Ocean Mega-Tsunami which will hit the US east coast six hours later.

The only warning that might take place of a potential landslide is a . . . . swarm of earthquakes.  Just like is taking place now!

The U.S. knows this is a very dangerous situation, so it placed Tsunami Warning Buoys in the Atlantic,  as seen on the map below.

But according to the National Data Buoy Center, two of those warning buoys, off New York City and Boston, MA, have been OFFLINE FOR MONTHS!

There will be NO WARNING.

In the video below, a Scientist outlines what will happen WHEN (not "if") the landslide takes place: A thousand foot tall wall of water around the initial island, part of which travels all the way to North America.  And when it makes landfall, the wave will be about one hundred feet tall!

Imagine what will happen to Boston, to New York City, To Washington, DC, and all the way down the coastline toward Miami -- total, complete, destruction.

Even if the Tsunami Warning Buoys were working - and some of them are not -- a Tsunami wave travels at about 500 Miles per hour through the ocean.   The warning buoys would only give the east coast about two hours advance warning.

How do you evacuate twenty million people from the New York City area in two hours?

You don't.   You can't.

The destruction and death would be on a Biblical scale.

Here is a computer model for the run-up water heights at various shorelines if only 500 km of La Palma slid into the Atlantic.  US east coast will see 90-100 foot tall waves coming ashore!

Folks along the US and Canadian east coast are strongly urged to closely monitor this situation.  If you hear that a landslide has taken place on La Palma, EVACUATE from the east coast immediately.   Don't wait.   The longer you wait, the more people will find out about it and begin trying to leave.  Within minutes, traffic jams, and car crashes by panicked people, will clog evacuation routes.

Have a plan to go inland by at least two-hundred (200) miles ! ! ! !

SPECIAL ATTENTION FLORIDA: Your entire state is only about five feet above sea level.   The wave would be about 75-100 feet tall when it hits the Florida east coast.   It is conceivable that your ENTIRE state would end up under water. Totally wiped out. There is likely no evacuation possible because of the size of the state and its entirety being low-lying.

The only chance might be to get on a boat and head out into the ocean and over the top of the wave before it hits land.

But that's a risky **** because there's no telling how tall the wave might be as it travels across the ocean.

Worse, as the tsunami heads around the southern tip of FLorida, it will hit the Gulf of Mexico as well.  This would mean a wall of water ALSO coming into Florida from its west coast.  It is likely the state would no longer exist if such an event were to take place.

Others along the Gulf Coast should also be aware of this because the Tsunami, although smaller, would impact the gulf coast about 8 hours after a landslide.

I tell you this so you know the facts.   Don't panic. Plan!
