Guam, the U.S. territory that’s recently come into North Korea’s crosshairs, was thrashed by Mother Earth early Wednesday, with the island reporting a magnitude 5.2 earthquake.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the temblor’s epicenter was 51.7 miles southeast of Inarajan Village, a community of about 2,300 people.
The earthquake had a depth of six miles.
On Tuesday, North Korea fired a midrange ballistic missile over Japan. Kim Jong Un, the leader of the Hermit Kingdom, called the launch a “meaningful prelude” to containing Guam, which is also home to key U.S. military bases.
President Trump said Tuesday “all options are on the table” after the missile launch, an act that instantly renewed tensions in the region just days after the regime appeared to be backing down from threats against the U.S. and its allies.
I have to wonder, given the relatively high magnitude and shallow depth, if this was artificially triggered: What’s generally referred to as a “HAARP job” (although HAARP in Alaska is just one of many Ionospheric heater arrays around the world). Note that both Russia and China have such technology as well as the US. The timing alone is enough to arouse suspicions of “geoterrorism” at work.
