Death, hunger, looting: Typhoon-ravaged Philippines' state of national calamity

Did the military induce Haiyan with HAARP to acquire acquiescence to TPP? Consider the problem of "global warming". What it ultimately boils down to is an issue of resource management. The TPP is another attack upon the planet and its inhabitants, needlessly misallocating resources for the profiteering of the oligarchs. Often under the veil of a truth an abuser lurks manipulating the truth and siphoning wealth and resources from its implications. Is climate change a convenient veil for weather warfare?

Meanwhile the good old USA are spending over 2 Billion dollars to upgrade their Nuclear Weapons Arsenal... And this is so much more important than those poor desperate people from the Philippines. This world is sick to the bone and the USA are leading the way with this disease..

Russia and China have lost their way in South East Asia once again - too slow to give any meaningful support.

@Rockyfjord: South Korea like Taiwan is being used to impress the Communists in N Korean and PRC. However if the capitalists helped everyone they would defeat their own purpose; which is, to enslave most of the people.

USA, UK, France are good only in Looting and destruction since Colonialism. Making Pledges and later not fulfilling them. USA, France, UK and Israel want to transport their expensive Junk as Relief when CASH is only needed by the Victims.


The UK has given over 10 million in aid cash as well as sending hms daring to the scene and a transportation plane, you're talking absolute rubbish. How much has Russia given? Oh, a mobile hospital, wooo! Such a contribution. Yes, the country needs cash, maybe russia should give some?

I worked with many Filipino's in Saudi Arabia
Saudi Arabian Airlines in Riyadh from 1990 to 1998- I have seen their country the people are beautiful inside and out.
I wish them all the very best during these times of troubles. Many are praying for you hoping wishing that you are safe- I'm story for the catastrophe you are suffering.

If we use the earth quake as a focal point of the energy release, then we can say that within the danger area you will have Singapore, Malaysia, Sri Lanka India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Omar, Yemen. Omar and Yemen are at a very high risk in my opinion. You also have a risk to Somalia, however Somalia is already seeing storm activity.

S o I would suggest that any storm may come from Somalia and sweep Oman / Yemen then into Saudi Arabia.

In my opinion there is a high chance of more very powerful storms in that region / area!

Planets core is charging, you have frequent volcanic eruptions in Indonesia over the past few months. Which is a sign of some kind of energy build up, then release and now you have this massive storm in the same area.

Are we seeing increased seismic activity anywhere and will we see similar activity on the other side of the eruptions.

I for one am not agreeing to the ignore the climate change, focus on the all the other stuff! (RT bugs me)!

Were is China, Russia, Iran and all the neighboring nations? Its shows how greedy these Nations are- Humanity only lives in the West- Greed and Evil exists in the rest. Shame on you all Eastern Greedy nations.


The greed in the West is more concentrated in the big banks and other corporations who control the governments and are ripping people off. But the government are helping to keep a good face for the people who want to help.

Humanity must stand as one against what is to come! or we will all fall!

If you have money, donate to charitable organizations like the Canadian Red Cross. They're administration fees are minute compared to The Red Cross US. =)
