Tsunami Disaster

The number of dead currently has risen to 114,000. Survivors are now at risk of many diseases. There's shortage of clean water, food and medicine. All grim facts and figures greets us day after day since tsunami struck South Asia on the 26th of December. Malaysia, death toll stands at 66 people not including the missings, has declared that there will not be any celebration to usher in the new year on midnight 31st December. I sincerly hope that the general public will donate a portion of the money they have allocated for the celebration tomorrow night to the various NGOs and funds set up to help the Tsunami victims.

Please direct your generous donation to the followings:

International Federation of Red Cross Red Crescent

Unicef

Malaysian Tsunami Disaster Fund

OR other NGOs you are familiar and comfortable with with your donations.

There is an absolutely astonishing story, entitled 'The CIA's OSS forerunner proposed using a nuclear bomb on a fault line to cause Japanese tsunamis and earthquakes!' in the 'News You Need To Know On The Dollar, The Economy, And The New World Order' section of SurvivalistSkills.Com.

To quote from the introduction to it...

The astonishing 1945 wartime document below, now declassified, outlines an astounding scenario.

Written as a secret operational proposal by the OSS, the forerunner of today's CIA, it was not put into efect - then, at least.

The chilling suggestion: "If we could could get (an atom) bomb within a mile of a point on a fault line destined to break within 90 years we might set it off ..."

It might well raise some suspicions in your mind regarding the recent and horrific Asian tsunami, which - amazingly for an 'earthquake'-caused event - registered no aftershocks whatsoever.

We present it here and leave you to form your own conclusions.
