05-14-03 -Ed: Wow. What a Spring this has been so far.
Incredible storms, tornados, hail, and the huge "silent" earthquakes that
don't show up on the quake lists, but do show up on the seismo charts. Not to mention
the seemingly endless Solar wind streams and storms.
Planet X (PX) is a no-show...or is it? I understand that the timeframe for
PX's appearance has been extended to June 1, 2003. If it still doesn't show up by that time,
then it is said that it could also fly by in 2 or 3 years. Okay, I'll be waiting. Pictures
of PX are being posted all over the net, but are they the real thing? Lord, who knows...?
Russia to Deliver Attack Against the USA: A Training One
PRAVDA: "The Russian military command seems to have learned the lessons of the Iraq war
The Russian military command seems to have learned the lessons of the Iraq war and now
plans to demonstrate the USA and its allies the whole of Russia's resolve
to strike back against any potential threat from the West, the Russian
newspaper Nezavisimaya Gazeta reports. The newspaper says that, as
soon as NATO Secretary General George Robertson leaves the Russian capital,
Moscow will immediately launch the largest military exercises it has seen in
years. During the exercises, the newspaper says, Russian strategic bombers
and submarine missile-carriers will simulate nuclear attacks against
several military targets on the territory of the USA and Great Britain."
