I live in the Pacific Northwest.  This was in fact reported as very unusual.  I did not see it this morning.  It happened before I woke up.

Shoot-down of dead satellite could happen tomorrow   

WASHINGTON — The Pentagon says the military's attempt to shoot down a wayward U.S. spy satellite as it falls toward Earth could happen as early as Wednesday night, but no final decision on timing has been made.

Press secretary Geoff Morrell said Tuesday that senior military officers, including the head of the U.S. Strategic Command, are evaluating the situation and will advise Defense Secretary Robert Gates when is the best time to carry it out.

The plan is to fire a missile from a Pacific-based ship that would release a "kenetic kill vehicle," — a nonexplosive device — on a path that would enable it to collide with the satellite, destroying the spacecraft and its components by force of impact alone.

The satellite is orbiting about 130 miles above Earth's surface. It is carrying an almost-full tank of rocket fuel whose toxicity would pose a threat to human health in the event the satellite crashed in a populated area.

I am no expert on disinfo. I would say they are really trying to get our attention turned towards the sky this week though. We have the shuttle landing, Lunar Eclipse (Red Moon), and then the shootdown.

Look at this, is this what you saw?


http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/23236766/


Ray Eickmeyer of Entiat, Wash., told KING 5 he was travelling southbound on Highway 97A when a very large shooting star traffic light green in color came down.

Eickmeyer said the meteor hit the ground just north of Waterville Plateau. Even with his car radio on, Eickmeyer said he could hear the impact. He added he then saw multiple lights flash, about 8 or 9 times. He described seeing a big hole in the ground and added he's never seen an impact that big.

KING also received emails from viewers in Sequim, Edgewood, Monroe and North Bend who said they also saw what looked like a fireball or dud firework coming down around 5:30 a.m.

"The colors were just beautiful, and it seemed so close even though it was probably quite far away," writes viewer Nance Anderson.

The meteor was spotted all the way south in the Portland area. Spokane television stations also received viewer calls from much of Eastern Washington and North Idaho about the meteor. Various callers to the station said it resembled summer lightning, a rocket, a satellite or an exploding transformer.

---------------------------

WHAT IS THE ‘BLUE BEAM PROJECT’?
From the INTERNET, courtesy of Calvin Burgin, wrldline@texas.net>
http://100777.com/node/1207
7/29/98:
It involves two things. A technologically simulated ‘second coming’ and the re-emergence of the new ‘MONTAUK’-type projects that have the ability to take up a whole bunch of people as in a ‘rapture’ type of situation and whisk the whole bunch into never-never land. Ironically, portions of the holographic projections have the potential for changing the planet into oneness with God. Unfortunately, this operates on the premise that Man shall somehow become God in human form and control other Men and dictate all actions and thoughts.
http://i.am/jah/emmau2.htm
The calculated resistance to the new religion, the New World Order and the new ‘Messiah’ will entail human loss on a massive scale in the ensuing ‘holy wars’. The ‘BLUE BEAM PROJECT’ will pretend to be the universal fulfillment of the prophecies of old; as major an event as that which took place 2000 years ago. In principle, it will make use of the sky as a holographic projection screen for space-based laser-generating satellites [star wars]. These projectors will project simultaneous images to the four corners of the planet, in every language by region. It deals with the religious aspect of the New World Order. The system has already been tested. Holographic projections of the ‘Christ Image’ have already been seen in some remote desert areas. These have only been reported in tabloid papers, so they are instantly rendered moot. They can also project images of aliens, monsters, angels - you name it. Computers will coordinate the satellites and software will run the show-and-tell. Holography is based on very nearly identical signals combining to produce image, or hologram, with depth perception. This is equally applicable to acoustic [ELF, VLF, LF] waves as it is optical phenomena. Specifically, the ‘show’ will consist of laser projections of multiple holographic images to different parts of the planet, each receiving different images according to the predominating regional religious faith. Not a single area will be excluded.
With computer animation and sound effects appearing to come from the depths of space, astonished followers of the various creeds will witness their own returned Messiah in spectacularly convincing lifelike realness. The various images of Christ, Mohammed, Buddha, Krishna, etc., will merge into ONE after ‘correct explanation’ of the mysteries, prophecies and revelations are disclosed. This ‘ONE GOD’ will in fact function as the Anti-Christ’, who will ‘explain’ that the various scriptures ‘have been misunderstood’ - that the religious of old are responsible for turning brother against brother, nation against nation - that the religions of the world must be abolished to make way for the GOLDEN AGE [NEW AGE] of the One World Religion, representing the One God they see before them.
Naturally, this superbly staged, full-scale production will result in social and religious disorder on a massive scale. Wonder what the television transmitters of religious networks will be doing on that day? But before all this, they have to go through four different steps in order to get to Project Blue Beam.
1: The first step concerns the breakdown of all archaeological knowledge. It deals with staging earthquakes at certain precise locations around the planet where supposed new ‘discoveries’ will finally explain [for them] that the meaning of the basic doctrines of all the world’s major religions are ‘wrong’. This falsification will be used to make the population believe that all religious doctrine has been misunderstood and misinterpreted. The falsification started with the film 2001: A Space Odyssey, the TV-series STAR TREK, the INDEPENDENCE DAY film, E.T., all of which deal with space ‘invasion’ and ‘protection’. JURASSIC PARK was to push the theory of evolution.
2: The second step deals with the gigantic space show: 3D optical holograms and sounds, laser projections of multiple holographic images in different parts of the world, each receiving a different image, according to its predetermined original national religious faith. This new ‘god’ image will talk in all languages. As an example, the Soviets have manufactured the advanced computers and have programmed them with the minute psychological particles based upon their studies of the anatomy and biology of the human body, as well as their studies on the anatomy, chemistry and electricity of the human brain. These computers have also been fed with the different languages of the world.
3: The third step deals with the telepathic electronic two-way communications, where ELF [Extra Low Frequency], VLF [Low Frequency] waves will reach the people of the Earth through the insides of their brains, making each person believe that his own God is speaking to him from within his own soul. Such rays, from satellites, are fed from the memory of computers that store much data about the human being and his languages. These rays will then interlace and interweave with the natural thinking processes to form what we call the ARTIFICIAL TALK.
4: The fourth step involves universal supernatural manifestations using electronic means. This step contains three different orientations: The first one is to make mankind believe that an alien invasion is about to occur upon every major city on the Earth. This is to push each major nation into using its nuclear capability to strike back. In this manner, it would put each of these nations in a state of full disarmament before the United Nations after the false attack.
The second is to make the ‘Christian’ believe that a major rapture is occurring, with a simple ‘played’ divine intervention of an alleged ‘good’ alien force coming to save the good people from a brutal satanic attack. Its goal is to get rid of all significant opposition to the NEW WORLD ORDER. The third orientation is a mixture of electronic and supernatural forces. The waves [frequencies] used at that time will allow supernatural forces through fiber optics cable, coaxial cable, electric and telephone lines in order to penetrate all electronic equipment and appliances that will by then all have a special microchip installed. The goal of this step deals with the materialization of satanic ghosts, spectres, and poltergiests all across the globe in order to push all populations to the edge of a wave of suicide, killing and permanent psychological disorder. After that night of the THOUSAND STARS, HUMANITY IS BELIEVED TO BE READY FOR THEM TO ENTER IN A ‘NEW MESSIAH’ TO REESTABLISH PEACE EVERYWHERE AT ANY COST, EVEN AT THE COST OF FREEDOM.

Just heard on C2C :
A trucker said he was held up at the supply warehouse because they said FEMA had shipments (of some sort) going out to the west for the satellite shoot.  Richard Hogland is going to be on after the commercial now to discuss the satellite shoot.

Press Release 20th February 2008 – For Immediate Release

Yorkshire CND Condemns US Satellite Shoot Down

Yorkshire Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament have today condemned Pentagon plans to shoot down a US military satellite as a hypocritical opportunity to test Missile Defence anti-satellite technology.

Speaking in advance of a Yorkshire CND organised meeting on the impact of US Missile Defence taking place in Leeds this Friday, Yorkshire CND Convenor Professor Dave Webb warned of the consequences of the development of such technology;

“The US have purposefully withdrawn from the ABM treaty in order to pursue a military programme that develops space and satellite technology for war fighting capabilities. Countries such as Russia and China have consistently tried to introduce measures to prevent the further expansion of the space arms race, measures which have been resoundingly blocked by the US.”

He continued; “Aside from the concerns this satellite shoot down raises about the advancement of the US war fighting capabilities, we also fear the immediate consequences of this test. Space debris and damage to non military satellite technology is a genuine concern.”

The meeting, entitled ‘Opposing US Missile Defence: A Yorkshire Perspective’ takes place from 7-9pm in Committee Room 7, Leeds Civic Hall on Friday 22nd February.

Speakers include Lord Wallace of Saltaire, Fabian Hamilton MP, Jon Trickett MP and Lindis Percy from the Campaign for Accountability of American Bases.

The meeting is free and open to the public.

Effort to Shoot Down Satellite Could Inform Military Strategy

By Marc Kaufman and Walter Pincus
Washington Post Staff Writers
Wednesday, February 20, 2008; Page A03

The Bush administration's attempt to shoot down an out-of-control spy satellite as early as this evening will help the military advance its anti-missile and anti-satellite planning and technology, according to space weapons experts and analysts. Both fields are of high interest to the military and of high concern for many other nations.

While U.S. officials have depicted the attempt solely as a precaution against the slim chance that the satellite's hazardous rocket fuel could harm people on Earth, the test will inherently have spillover military consequences, the experts said.

To accomplish this week's task, for example, the Navy has modified its Aegis anti-missile radar system for satellite tracking, making clear that a system designed for missile defense can be transformed into an anti-satellite system in a short time.

The attempted shoot-down will also enable the Pentagon to practice using, in an urgent scenario, key elements of its space defense apparatus, including the Joint Space Operations Center at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California and its sophisticated space identification, tracking and targeting system.

The attempt will further provide an unscripted opportunity to see whether ship-based missiles can blow up the satellite just as it reenters Earth's atmosphere -- a key moment in any attempt to intercept an intercontinental missile that might someday be launched against the United States.

"Whatever their motivation for shooting down the satellite, it's clear that this will be quite useful to the military," said Joan Johnson-Freese, an expert on military space issues and a department head of the Naval War College in Newport, R.I.

The targeting of the satellite follows several decades of effort by the Defense Department to develop weaponry to shoot down enemy satellites or missiles.

In 1985, the Air Force successfully tested an air-launched missile to shoot down a satellite, and in 2004, it called for ensuring American "space superiority" in an official policy statement, a phrase meant to cover the denial of enemy access to space when needed.

The Pentagon now spends more than $12 billion annually to develop weapons capable of shooting down missiles entering or leaving space, but it has no dedicated U.S. anti-satellite weapons program in its latest unclassified budget. The military has also worked on a laser project in New Mexico that could have anti-satellite capabilities, and has launched two small satellites that independent experts speculate could be modified to attack, or defend, larger spacecraft.

International treaties, opposition from Congress and concerns about future space debris from anti-satellite tests have all complicated these efforts. The incoming spy satellite, some believe, offers an opportunity to avoid some of those constraints and to test what amounts to an anti-satellite defense.

The Navy has said that it may take as many as three shots at the satellite, and Johnson-Freese said "that will give them data they've never had before," adding: "They're taking a missile defense system and using it as an anti-satellite system, and now they'll be able to see how well it works."

David Wright, a senior scientist with the Union of Concerned Scientists, said "there's a real concern among people here and in other nations that the U.S. is trying to develop space weapons in the guise of other systems." The plan to shoot down the satellite, he says, "fuels the flames for those who think we want to build anti-satellite capabilities." Both China and Russia have criticized the planned satellite intercept.

Paul B. Stares, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations who has written books about anti-satellite technology and space security, said the skills to be demonstrated in the attempt emphasize how important military activity in space has become. "It's hard to imagine how, as the use of space for military purposes increases, the interest in anti-satellite weaponry won't increase at a similar pace," he said.

Stares said that the first American anti-satellite weapons in the early 1960s were nuclear-armed and designed to destroy or disable satellites across vast expanses of space. Nuclear tests in the atmosphere, however, made clear that these weapons were impractical, because the explosions knocked out useful satellites as well as the targets and severely disrupted ground communications. The United States and former Soviet Union signed a treaty banning nuclear tests in space in 1963.

The United States and Russia have intermittently pursued anti-satellite programs since then, and also have occasionally respected informal moratoriums on testing. The Russian program involved launching smaller craft to follow a target and get close enough to blow it up. Early last year, China demonstrated its own capability by shooting a ground-based missile at an old satellite 600 miles in space. That test produced thousands of pieces of potentially damaging space debris and brought condemnation from much of the world.

The potential vulnerability of U.S. satellites to foreign weaponry is well known to officials at home and abroad. When asked last week about Chinese and Russian capabilities to harm our satellites, Thomas Fingar, deputy director of national intelligence for analysis, told the House Armed Services Committee, "It would not be that difficult to inflict significant, serious damage to our capabilities over [a] couple of days."

Since the United States abrogated the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty in 2002, both China and Russia have pushed for a new treaty that would ban weapons in space. The United States has opposed the proposal at the United Nations disarmament conference.

I just uncovered a 2 month old leaked conversation between Dick Cheney and Dr. Strangelove...

CHENEY: We need a plan to start a 3 state martial law war game that will test the effects on mass deportations and full police state capabilities.

DR. STRANGELOVE: Why don't we convince the people they need us because of a radioactive waste spill?

CHENEY: Cool, how do we do it?

DR. STRANGELOVE: We blow up a nuclear satellite over the Pacific Ocean, then the radioactive waste cloud will carry over to the Western coast of the US giving our FEMA teams full authority to "deal" with the nuclear fallout.

CHENEY: Excellent! Do you think the people will go for it?

DR. STRANGELOVE: Mr. Vice President, what choice do they have?

CHENEY: Hahahaha [Dr. Evil type laughing]

Nuclear fallout, Cheney's new best friend!

I have a theory, and I hope I am wrong. What if they use this SPY SAT shoot down as an oppotunity to launch an EMP attack? I fear a false flag op of some sort is in the making. Be very vigilant in the coming days.

Space shuttle descends: Satellite turkey-shoot to commence
US Navy books vast Pacific firing area five days running
http://www.theregister.co.uk/2008/02/20/spy_satellite_shootdown_intercept_shuttle_down_fun_begins/
By Lewis Page Published Wednesday 20th February 2008 14:02 GMT



Updated The American military has issued further warning notices to aircraft and shipping in the Pacific, offering further opportunities for US warships to destroy a malfunctioning secret spy satellite before it descends to Earth. Meanwhile, NASA has cleared the space shuttle Atlantis to land as scheduled in Florida this afternoon, allowing the first satellite shot to be attempted above the Pacific in the early hours of tomorrow morning (UK time).

Atlantis, having departed from the International Space Station on Monday, was until lately orbiting higher than the crippled spy satellite, like the ISS. Neither would have been at significant risk should the warships fire, according to the US government.
 

However, the planned attempt to break up the satellite using ballistic-missile defence interceptors will create a spreading cloud of debris, mostly still travelling at enormous speed above the atmosphere. US officials believe the satellite wreckage will mostly descend and burn up within hours of a hit, but nonetheless have decided to get the shuttle down before firing.

Atlantis needed to land by Friday, as its power supplies would have run out then. If the anti-satellite firing took place first, the shuttle could have been at risk from debris as it descended. At orbital velocities of several miles per second, even a very small fragment of satellite could wreck the shuttle totally; or at least cause enough damage for the heat and stresses of re-entry to be fatal, as in the Columbia disaster. Once the space shuttle commences re-entry, it has no option to abort and return to orbit.

Now, however, Atlantis is carrying out its de-orbit burn on schedule and will be safe on the ground at Cape Canaveral shortly after two in the afternoon UK time. That will leave the skies clear for the flotilla of US warships now at sea west of Hawaii to launch a specially-modified Standard SM-3 ballistic-missile interceptor into the path of the crippled spy sat as it hurtles overhead at approximately 0330 tomorrow morning UK time.

According to the US defence authorities, President Bush has delegated firing authority to defence secretary Robert Gates. Gates is due to commence a nine-day overseas trip tomorrow, but will apparently give firing orders "from the road, if necessary".

An initial warning to airmen blocked off a 1400-mile stretch of the Pacific between the hours of 0230 and 0500 tomorrow morning UK time. The spy satellite will be over the southwest edge of the warning zone at approximately 0328, and departing towards Canada less than three minutes later - perhaps in the form of a cloud of fragments, if an "exo-atmospheric kill vehicle" lofted by a triple-stage Standard rocket has managed to get precisely in the satellite's way.

Since the initial NOTAM (Notice to Airmen) was issued, another has been put out for the same area 24 hours later, indicating a time window for a subsequent shot if the first should miss. A separate warning to shipping specifies that hazardous operations may take place in that area during the same two-and-a-half-hour time slot for the next five days. The air warning will be updated daily, apparently.

The danger area doesn't change, despite the fact that the satellite's track above it will shift gradually westward as the days pass. (Sky-watcher Ted Molczan's pdf plot shows this plainly.) This is because the only hazard in the firing area itself is from falling boosters and so forth from the Standard interceptors - and perhaps from highpowered radars being used to track the satellite and assess the shoot. There is a standing NOTAM in the area warning of X-band emissions from the radar at the Pacific Missile Range Facility on Kauai, which would seem a logical one to use as it will have the satellite in sight as it passes above the firing area.

It has also been reported that the often-troubled radar-golfball-on-an-oilrig sea-based X-band radar (SBX) might be employed. Text purporting to be a NOTAM has been posted on skywatcher sites and (of course) Wikipedia. However, the NOTAM at least appears to be a fake, as it cannot be found on US government channels.

Actual satellite debris is unlikely to come down in the Pacific firing area - rather it will carry on along the spacecraft's original track, spreading and deviating in complex ways. Ten minutes after a hit, the centre of the wreckage cloud will be over Canada. Ten more minutes after that and the cloud will be racing southward above the Atlantic. Owing to the timing of the shot window, the frag cloud will then stay mainly over oceans for much of its predicted two-orbit lifespan - though it will graze western and southern Africa, and pass above Australia twice.

The Bush administration is still sticking firmly to its story that the shoot is aimed at rupturing the satellite's 40-inch hydrazine tank so as to prevent a toxic gas cloud on impact. China and Russia continue to evince boilerplate "concern" over the mission and possible militarisation of space.

Here at the Reg, we're obviously hoping for repeated, spectacular misses (the US Navy apparently only has three modded SM-3s on hand) followed by eventual sale of the secret sky-spy payload on eBay and further sensational revelations.

A Pentagon news conference is expected shortly after the initial firing, at around 0400-0430 tomorrow morning UK time. We'll keep you posted. ®

Update

AP reports that Pentagon spokesmen have said that the Northern Pacific is too rough for satellite-shooting just now, and they may need to wait until Friday to commence firing.

"We don't anticipate the weather being good enough today," said an unidentified military officer. "It has not been enough for us to say 'no' and put the launch mission off ... But it would take improved conditions to proceed."

The spokesman confirmed that everything else is ready, and said the last possible day for sat-shooting would be the 29th. After that the effects of the atmosphere on the descending spacecraft will make it impossible to hit with an SM-3.

US Military Official: US Unlikely to Shoot Down Falling Satellite Wednesday
http://www.voanews.com/english/2008-02-20-voa25.cfm
By VOA News  20 February 2008   



A Standard Missile-3 (SM-3) is launched from the Aegis cruiser USS Lake Erie in Kauai, Hawaii in this 11 Dec 2003 file photo



A senior U.S. military official says the United States is unlikely to make an attempt to shoot down a falling U.S. spy satellite Wednesday.

The official, who spoke to reporters on the condition of anonymity, says high waves in the Pacific Ocean, west of Hawaii, will likely prevent a U.S. Navy ship from meeting the criteria to launch the missile.

The official says the path of the satellite will provide one ideal opportunity for a shoot-down every day until February 29.  The Pentagon says the satellite is carrying toxic fuel that could pose a public health threat if it reaches the ground.

Meanwhile, the U.S. space shuttle Atlantis landed safely on Earth today after a two-week mission to expand the International Space Station.

Officials from the U.S. space agency NASA wanted Atlantis back as soon as possible to clear the way for the U.S. military to fire the missile at the falling spy satellite.

The shuttle touched down Wednesday morning at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida.

They say they will put this shoot-down off because of rough seas. I don't believe it. For all we know, it could be happening right now!  Anyone on here from Hawaii?

Also did anyone notice this in Sane's recent post?

"Gates is due to commence a nine-day overseas trip tomorrow, but will apparently give firing orders "from the road, if necessary". 

WHAT? The man giving the orders will be "overseas' while all this is going on???

Also could this shoot-down 'catastrophe' be what Bush needs to declare an emergency and stay in power?

US Attempt to Shoot Down Satellite Undermines Efforts to Ban Space Weapons, Reduces US Security, Science Group Says

CAMBRIDGE, MASS. (February 20, 2008) — The Bush administration's attempt to shoot down a damaged spy satellite will undermine efforts to protect the future use of space and ultimately weaken U.S. security, according to a space expert at the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS).

As early as tomorrow night, a U.S. Navy warship will fire an Aegis-LEAP missile defense system interceptor to try to shatter the USA 193 satellite into small pieces that will burn up during reentry into the Earth's atmosphere.

"The potential political cost of shooting down this satellite is high," said Laura Grego, an astrophysicist with UCS's Global Security Program. "Whatever the motivation for it, demonstrating an anti-satellite weapon is counterproductive to U.S. long-term interests, given that the United States has the most to gain from an international space weapons ban. Instead, it should be taking the lead in negotiating a treaty."

Pentagon officials say they are concerned that the fuel tank on the satellite containing toxic hydrazine will survive reentry, and that it could pose a health hazard if it lands in a populated area. Without intervention, the satellite would hit the Earth's surface by early March. While it is difficult to assess the risk of injury to people on the ground from publicly available information, Grego said, the risk appears to be small.

What is not in doubt is that this intercept attempt—especially if it is successful—will make safeguarding satellites more difficult in the long run, she said.

"If the Pentagon demonstrates that its missile defense systems can destroy satellites, it will be very difficult to convince other countries that they shouldn't develop a similar anti-satellite capability," Grego said. "Moreover, concern that the United States has this offensive capability deployed around the world will likely complicate relations with Russian and China."

Not only has the United States failed to lead efforts to prevent the development, deployment and use of anti-satellite systems, it has for many years opposed international efforts to do so, Grego pointed out. Just last week the Bush administration rejected a draft treaty presented at the U.N. Conference on Disarmament that would ban space weapons and prohibit attacking satellites from the ground or space.

The United States is increasingly dependent on satellites for a wide range of civilian and military uses, including communications, navigation and reconnaissance. These satellites are vulnerable to attack and disruption because they can be seen and easily tracked in space.

Destroying satellites with high-speed collisions creates huge amounts of orbital debris. In January 2007, for example, a Chinese antisatellite weapon test against a relatively small satellite generated millions of pieces of debris. Because the satellite USA 193 is at a relatively low altitude—about 140 miles above the Earth—the debris from a successful intercept would fall out of orbit in a matter of days. But destroying satellites at higher altitudes would produce debris that would remain in orbit for decades or centuries and threaten operating satellites.

What are the odds that the Navy will hit the satellite? Because the satellite is traveling more than twice the speed of the mock warheads the Aegis interceptor has faced in missile defense tests, the success rate in those tests is not a good predictor for this situation, Grego said. On the other hand, the 5,000-pound satellite is considerably larger than the mock warheads, which should make hitting the satellite somewhat easier.

Whether or not the Aegis missile hits the satellite, the demonstration will tell us little about the effectiveness of the Aegis system against an actual missile strike, Grego said. The satellite does not have decoys or other countermeasures, and its trajectory and the time of the engagement are known in advance, none of which would be expected in a real-world attack.

If you ever meet anyone that actually knows Bush, you will realize he is not an idiot, but he is one hell of a charismatic charmer that is a magician at the art of distraction.

It seems that there has been a calculated effort to leak photos of Bush acting stupid as another "False Flag" excuse for genocide and robbing the coffers of this country.

The backup plan to that is that he is insane.

This is all more false flags and I can prove it.

Here are the carefully obviously staged photos (this is beyond stupid, this is fricking slapstick-total masonic con-job shit, do not fall for it):


[Twice, he did it twice?  This is a con job, wake up!]


[Binoculars with the caps on them-c'mon, how is this not slapstick?]

And everybodies favorite:


Here is the Atlantic's take on it:
http://www.theatlantic.com/doc/200611u/bush-smart

Also, when he read the NIE report that Iran had no nuke program, he gave a press conference before the release of the information and he chose his words carefully. 

Crooks and Liars breaks down the "Texas Hold 'em" tell sign that Bush is not an idiot and is calculated in his rape of this country:

If you go back to his October 17th press conference, the one where he spoke of ‘World War III’ he changes his wording. It’s no longer the need to prevent the Iranians from getting the bomb. Now it’s the necessity of “preventing them from hav[ing] the knowledge necessary to make a nuclear weapon.”

Do not fall for the following false flag attacks by NWO putting blame on the "ghosts"

Ghost 1:  Bush is an idiot

Ghost 2:  Bush is insane

If either of those were true, he would not be president or he would not kiss Rockefeller and Pelosi's Asses which he always does.

Spy satellite shootdown hinges on tricky factors
Extraordinary operation requires steady seas and optimum positioning


WASHINGTON - The Defense Department counted down Wednesday toward a dramatic effort to shoot down a dying and potentially deadly U.S. spy satellite, using a high-tech missile fired from a ship in the Pacific. Foul weather threatened to delay the operation.

The timing was tricky. For the best chance to succeed, the military awaited a combination of favorable factors: steady seas around the Navy cruiser that would fire the missile, optimum positioning of the satellite as it passed in polar orbit and the readiness of an array of space- and ground-based sensors to help cue the missile and track the results.

The head of U.S. Pacific Command headquarters in Hawaii says he's "cautiously optimistic" that a missile will be launched in an attempt to shoot down a dying spy satellite.

Admiral Timothy Keating tells reporters he also believes the effort will be successful. Keating says weather in the area of the launch ship is favorable. Keating has been consulting with his counterparts in other regions about the shootdown plan.'

The operation is so extraordinary that Defense Secretary Robert Gates, not a military commander, gets to make the final decision to pull the trigger.

The government has organized hazardous materials teams to be flown to the site of any dangerous or otherwise sensitive debris that might land in the U.S. or elsewhere. The operation was so extraordinary, with such intense international publicity and political ramifications, that Defense Secretary Robert Gates — not a military commander — was to make the final decision to pull the trigger.

The U.S. government organized hazardous materials teams, under the code name "Burnt Frost," to be flown to the site of any dangerous or otherwise sensitive debris that might land in the United States or elsewhere.

High seas in the north Pacific posed the first obstacle as the USS Lake Erie prepared to launch a three-stage missile. Beyond a certain point, rough seas can interfere with the cruiser's launch procedures.

The plan was for the SM-3 to soar 130 miles to just beyond the edge of the Earth's atmosphere in an attempt to speed its non-explosive warhead directly into the satellite.
Early in the day, a senior military officer said it did not look as if the weather would be good enough. That was shortly after the space shuttle Atlantis landed, removing the last safety issue for the military to begin determining the best moment for launch.

Another officer said hours later the weather was improving and might permit a launch by Wednesday night. Or the military could try again on Thursday or any day until about Feb. 29, when the satellite is expected to have re-entered the Earth's atmosphere.

The aim is not just to hit the bus-sized satellite — which would burn up upon re-entering the atmosphere anyway — but to obliterate a tank onboard that is carrying 1,000 pounds of hydrazine, a toxic fuel. The fuel, unused because the satellite died shortly after reaching orbit in December 2006 — could be hazardous if it landed in a populated area.

[center ~ CNN Reports a Hit ~

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- An inoperable U.S. spy satellite orbiting 150 miles above Earth was struck Wednesday by a missile fired from a U.S. Navy cruiser, military sources told CNN.


A Delta II rocket lifts off, carrying a reconnaissance satellite that failed hours later.

The Pentagon said the window of opportunity to strike the 5,000-pound satellite opened Wednesday, when the space shuttle Atlantis landed in Florida. The Pentagon wanted to be sure the shuttle would not be struck by any debris from a destroyed satellite.

Missile Hits Decaying Satellite Over Pacific
American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, Feb. 20, 2008 – A network of land-, air-, sea- and spaced-based sensors confirms that the U.S. military intercepted a non-functioning National Reconnaissance Office satellite which was in its final orbits before entering the earth's atmosphere.

At approximately 10:26 p.m. EST today, a U.S. Navy AEGIS warship, the USS Lake Erie (CG-70), fired a single modified tactical Standard Missile-3 (SM-3) hitting the satellite approximately 247 kilometers (133 nautical miles) over the Pacific Ocean as it traveled in space at more than 17,000 mph. USS Decatur (DDG-73) and USS Russell (DDG-59) were also part of the task force.

The objective was to rupture the fuel tank to dissipate the approximately 1,000 pounds (453 kg) of hydrazine, a hazardous fuel which could pose a danger to people on earth, before it entered into earth's atmosphere. Confirmation that the fuel tank has been fragmented should be available within 24 hours.

Due to the relatively low altitude of the satellite at the time of the engagement, debris will begin to re-enter the earth’s atmosphere immediately. Nearly all of the debris will burn up on reentry within 24-48 hours and the remaining debris should re-enter within 40 days.

DoD will conduct a press briefing at 7 a.m. EST to provide further information related to the operation. The briefing can be viewed live on www.Defenselink.com through the Pentagon Channel.

"A network of land-, air-, sea- and spaced-based sensors"

WTF?

I cannot believe that this was a "spontaneous decision" to deal with a similar situation that has occured multiple times before (there are over 3,000 satellites up there and they come down all the time.)

So what about the nuke fallout?

Is this a test of the missle defense system?

Did they do a missile to missile nuke test and they are going to be testing fallout over North America?

Is that why they have thousands of nuke ratiation testers all over US/Canada?

But the US would never test nuke fallout on its citizens.

Plutonium certainly falls under the category of "toxic rocket fuel."  I doubt it is plutonium however.  The disaster that the elite will unleash eventually will probably be a lot more controlled then just releasing a bunch of nuclear debris into the atmosphere.  A biological disaster is more likely than a nuclear.

They've always had thousands of nuclear radiation testers all over the country to monitor thousands of nuclear materials, so don't be alarmed about that.  After all, they have to live somewhere.

I don't think they will actually release a cloud of radiation and just let it blow around in the winds as it falls to earth.  It is too dangerous for the elite to do, and too uncontrollable.

I doubt they will go into martial law for this either but running war games and martial law drills does make people more ready to accept and carry out such things.

This may be a psych op to prepare the elite's forces for a different disaster yet to come.  Hopefully I will wake up tomorrow and the Golden Gate Bridge won't have imploded like the twin towers...

Actually, take my last post, scratch that and reverse it.

Using HAARP they could actually very specifically target any fallout to a certain location by controlling the winds using the ionosphere -- with a very large coverage radius mind you, but still concentrated to one area.

450kg (1000lbs) of toxic hydrazine

Hydrazine
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydrazine

Hydrazine is the chemical compound with the formula (NH2)2. It has an ammonia-like odor, and is derived from ammonia, but its physical properties are more similar to those of water. Hydrazine is usually handled as 60% aqueous solution. It is mainly used in as a blowing agent in preparing polymer foams, but significant applications also include its uses as a precursor to polymerization catalysts and pharmaceuticals. It is used in rocket fuels and to prepare the gas precursors used in air bags. Approximately 260M kg are manufactured annually.[2]Contents



Molecular structure and properties
Hydrazine can arise via coupling a pair of ammonia molecules by removal of one hydrogen per molecule. Each H2N-N subunit is pyramidal in shape. The N-N distance is 1.45 Å, and the molecule adopts a gauche conformation.[3] The rotational barrier is twice that of ethane. These structural properties resemble those of gaseous hydrogen peroxide, which adopts a "skewed" anticlinal conformation, and also experiences a strong rotational barrier.

Hydrazine has basic (alkali) chemical properties comparable to those of ammonia but about 1/15 as strong.
N2H4 + H2O → [N2H5]+ + OH- Kb = 3.0 x 10-6

(for ammonia Kb = 1.78 x 10-5) Hydrazine can be diprotonated only with difficulty:[4]
[N2H5]+ + H2O → [N2H6]2+ + OH- Kb = 8.4 x 10-16

Synthesis and manufacture
Theodor Curtius synthesized free hydrazine for the first time in 1889 via a circuitous route.[5]

Hydrazine is produced in the Olin Raschig process from sodium hypochlorite (the active ingredient in many bleaches) and ammonia, a process announced in 1907. This method relies on the reaction of chloramine with ammonia.[6] Ammonia is readily available from the Haber process.

The Olin Raschig route to hydrazine involves oxidation of urea with sodium hypochlorite:[7]
(H2N)2C=O + NaOCl + 2 NaOH → N2H4 + H2O + NaCl + Na2CO3

In the Atofina-PCUK cycle, hydrazine is produced in several steps from acetone, ammonia, and hydrogen peroxide. Acetone and ammonia first react to give the imine followed by oxidation with hydrogen peroxide to the oxaziridine, a three-membered ring containing carbon, oxygen, and nitrogen, followed by ammonolysis to the hydrazone, a process that couples two nitrogen atoms. This hydrazone reacts with one more equivalent of acetone, and the resulting azine is hydrolyzed to give hydrazine, regenerating acetone. Unlike the Raschig process, this process does not produce salt. The PCUK stands for Produits Chimiques Ugine Kuhlmann, a French chemical manufacturer.[8]

Hydrazine can also be produced via the so-called ketazine and peroxide processes.

In 2001, microbiologist Marc Strous from the University of Nijmegen in the Netherlands discovered that hydrazine is produced by some yeasts and the open ocean bacterium anammox (Brocadia anammoxidans). They are the only discovered organisms to naturally produce hydrazine.[9]


Hydrazine derivatives
Many substituted hydrazines are known, and several occur naturally. Some examples:
gyromitrin and agaritine are phenylhydrazines found in the commercially produced mushroom species Agaricus bisporus. Gyromitrin is metabolized into monomethyl hydrazine.
iproniazid, hydralazine and phenelzine are hydrazine-containing medications.
1,1-dimethylhydrazine and 1,2-dimethylhydrazine are hydrazines where two hydrogen atoms are replaced by methyl groups.
2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazine (2,4-DNP) is commonly used to test for ketones and aldehydes in organic chemistry.
phenylhydrazine, C6H5NHNH2, the first hydrazine to be discovered.


Applications
The majority use of hydrazine is as a precursor to blowing agents. Specific compounds include azodicarbonamide and Azobis(isobutyronitrile), which yield 100-200 mL of gas per gram of precursor. In a somewhat related application, sodium azide, the gas-forming agent in air bags, is produced from hydrazine by reaction with sodium nitrite.[2]


Organic chemistry
Hydrazines are part of many organic syntheses, often those of practical significance in pharmaceuticals, such as the antituberculant Isoniazid and the antifungal Fluconazole, as well as in textile dyes and in photography.[2]


Hydrazone formation
Illustrative of the condensation of hydrazine with a simple carbonyl is its reaction with acetone to give the azine. This azine reacts further with hydrazine to afford the hydrazone:[10]
2 (CH3)2CO + N2H4 → 2 H2O + [(CH3)2C=N]2
[(CH3)2C=N]2 + N2H4 → 2 (CH3)2C=NNH2

The acetone azine is an intermediate in the Atofina-PCUK synthesis. Direct alkylation of hydrazines with alkyl halides in the presence of base affords alkyl-substituted hydrazines, but the reaction is typically inefficient due to poor control on level of substitution (same as in ordinary amines). The reduction of hydrazones to hydrazines present a clean way to produce 1,1-dialkylated hydrazines.

In a related reaction, 2-cyanopyridines react with hydrazine to form amide hydrazides, which can be converted using 1,2-diketones into triazines.


Wolff-Kishner reduction
Hydrazine is used in the Wolff-Kishner reduction, a reaction that transforms the carbonyl group of a ketone or aldehyde into a methylene (or methyl) group via a hydrazone intermediate. The production of the highly-stable dinitrogen from the hydrazine derivative helps to drive the reaction.


Heterocyclic chemistry
Being bifunctional, with two amines, hydrazine is a key building block for the preparation of many heterocyclic compounds via condensation with a range of difunctional electrophiles. With 2,4-pentanedione, it condenses to give the 3,5-dimethylpyrazole.[11] In the Einhorn-Brunner reaction hydrazines react with imides to give triazoles.


Sulfonation
Being a good nucleophile, N2H4 is susceptible to attack by sulfonyl halides and acyl halides.[12] The tosylhydrazine also forms hydrazones upon treatment with carbonyls.


Deprotection of phthalimides
Hydrazine is used to cleave N-alkylated phthalimide derivatives. This scission reaction allows phthalimide anion to be used as amine precursor in the Gabriel synthesis.[13]


Reducing agent
Hydrazine is a convenient reductant because the by-products are typically nitrogen gas and water. Thus, it is used as an antioxidant, an oxygen scavenger, and a corrosion inhibitor in water boilers and heating systems. It is also used to reduce metal salts and oxides to the pure metals in electroless nickel plating and plutonium extraction from nuclear reactor waste.


Hydrazinium salts
Hydrazine is converted to solid salts by treatment with mineral acids. A common salt is hydrazine hydrogen sulfate, [N2H5]HSO4, which probably should be called hydrazinium bisulfate.[citation needed] Hydrazine bisulfate is used as an alternative treatment of cancer-induced cachexia. The salt of hydrazine and hydrazoic acid N5H5 was of scientific interest, because of the high nitrogen content and the explosive properties.


Other industrial uses
Hydrazine is used in many processes including: production of spandex fibers, as a polymerization catalyst; in fuel cells, solder fluxes; and photographic developers, as a chain extender in urethane polymerizations, and heat stabilizers. In addition, a semiconductor deposition technique using hydrazine has recently been demonstrated, with possible application to the manufacture of thin-film transistors used in liquid crystal displays. Hydrazine in a 70% hydrazine, 30% water solution is used to power the EPU (emergency power unit) on the F-16 fighter plane. The explosive Astrolite is made by combining hydrazine with ammonium nitrate.


Rocket fuel
Hydrazine was first used as a rocket fuel during World War II for the Messerschmitt Me 163B (the first rocket-powered fighter plane), under the name B-Stoff (hydrazine hydrate). If mixed with methanol (M-Stoff) and water it is called C-Stoff.

Hydrazine is also used as a low-power monopropellant for the maneuvering thrusters of spacecraft, and the Space Shuttle's Auxiliary Power Units. In addition, monopropellant hydrazine-fueled rocket engines are often used in terminal descent of spacecraft. A collection of such engines was used in both Viking program landers as well as the Phoenix lander launched in August 2007.

In all hydrazine monopropellant engines, the hydrazine is passed by a catalyst such as iridium metal supported by high-surface-area alumina (aluminium oxide) or carbon nanofibers,[14] or more recently molybdenum nitride on alumina,[15] which causes it to decompose into ammonia, nitrogen gas, and hydrogen gas according to the following reactions:
3 N2H4 → 4 NH3 + N2
N2H4 → N2 + 2 H2
4 NH3 + N2H4 → 3 N2 + 8 H2

These reactions are extremely exothermic (the catalyst chamber can reach 800 °C in a matter of milliseconds,[14]) and they produce large volumes of hot gas from a small volume of liquid hydrazine,[15] making it an efficient thruster propellant.

Other variants of hydrazine that are used as rocket fuel are monomethylhydrazine, CH3NHNH2 (also known as MMH) and unsymmetrical dimethylhydrazine, (CH3)2NNH2 (also known as UDMH). These derivatives are used in two-component rocket fuels, often together with dinitrogen tetroxide, N2O4, also known as nitrogen tetroxide. This reaction is extremely exothermic, as a rocket fuel should be, and it is also hypergolic, which means that the burning starts without any external ignition source.


Fuel cells
The Italian catalyst manufacturer Acta has proposed using hydrazine as an alternative to hydrogen in fuel cells. The chief benefit of using hydrazine is that it can produce over 200 mW/cm2 more than a similar hydrogen cell without the need to use expensive platinum catalysts. As the fuel is liquid at room temperature, it can be handled and stored more easily than hydrogen. By storing the hydrazine in a tank full of a double-bonded carbon-oxygen carbonyl, the fuel reacts and forms a safe solid called hydrazone. By then flushing the tank with warm water, the liquid hydrazine hydrate is released. Hydrazine has a higher electromotive force of 1.56 V compared to 1.23 V for hydrogen. Hydrazine breaks down in the cell to form nitrogen and hydrogen which bonds with oxygen, releasing water.[16]


Safety
Hydrazine is highly toxic and dangerously unstable, especially in the anhydrous form. Symptoms of acute exposure to high levels of hydrazine in humans may include irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, dizziness, headache, nausea, pulmonary edema, seizures, coma, and it can also damage the liver, kidneys, and central nervous system. The liquid is corrosive and may produce dermatitis from skin contact in humans and animals. Effects to the lungs, liver, spleen, and thyroid have been reported in animals chronically exposed to hydrazine via inhalation. Increased incidences of lung, nasal cavity, and liver tumors have been observed in rodents exposed to hydrazine.[17] No human being is known to have ever suffered serious injury from exposure to the chemical.

"Is that why they have thousands of nuke ratiation testers all over US/Canada?"

They've always had thousands of nuclear radiation testers all over the country to monitor thousands of nuclear materials, so don't be alarmed about that.  After all, they have to live somewhere.

I don't think they will actually release a cloud of radiation and just let it blow around in the winds as it falls to earth.  It is too dangerous for the elite to do, and too uncontrollable.

I doubt they will go into martial law for this either but running war games and martial law drills does make people more ready to accept and carry out such things.

This may be a psych op to prepare the elite's forces for a different disaster yet to come.  Hopefully I will wake up tomorrow and the Golden Gate Bridge won't have imploded like the twin towers...

they are currently on specific wargame drills.

i do not understand, you think that over 100 agencies actively conducting radiation wargame/standby active for 40 days of 1,000 lbs of Thorazine or Plutonium or nothing (how would you know?) is just a normal thing?

Were the 22 wargames on 9/11 normal?

now you are getting to the point of being somewhat confusing
