Silly me. For one brief nanosecond I got all teary-eyed, thinking that the U.S. military, steaming towards the Phillipines, was actually on a humanitarian mission. I even let myself expand that feeling into a YES! This is what our bloated military could be used for, to help the world heal from devastations caused by climate change!
Then I remembered dutchsince, his awful claim that Typhoon Haiyan was man-made.
If dutchsinse is right, then my idealistic visions of the future use of the military, to heal the planet and help create peace on earth, are instantly obliterated by that other way of interpreting events, the one I learned from combining Naomi Klein’s Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism and John Perkins’ Confessions of an Economic Hitman.
If only I hadn’t read either of those books. If only I could still look through rose-colored glasses. Instead, I’ve been retooled to follow the money, and mass death and destruction, right down the rabbit-hole.
For example, yep! Check this out:
Aha! So what would be the motive for Empire’s financial/corporate/military complex designing a disaster that invited a permanent “presence” in the Phillipines? This article explores that question.

– Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen (1997-2001)
Do you believe that weather weapons exist?In a United States Department of Defense transcript from April, 28th 1997, then Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen, shocked the public by admitting that weaponized weather has been created through the use of “electromagnetic waves.” The Weather Modification Association has admitted that governments have been altering the weather since at least 1950.The aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda), has been truly tragic as the situation has descended into total chaos, however, one cannot ignore the bizarre weather anomalies leading up to the “world’s biggest storm“.
Weather Manipulation: Weather modification technology exists and could be weaponized.In the past week, independent weatherman ‘Dutchsinse’ shot several YouTube videos dissecting the typhoon system passing through the Philippines, believing it to be produced by weather manipulation, specifically microwave pulse technology.
Weather modification technology and geo-engineering would be a powerful weapon if deployed for strategic ends. If this is the case, what would be the geopolitical motive?
In August of 2013, while the situation in Syria was reaching a boiling point over false chemical weapons allegations, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel met with Filipino President Benigno Aquino to discuss the expansion of the U.S. military in the Philippines. The Obama administration had already been negotiating a deal to secure space for the US military to conduct military maneuvers at several locations in the area. This military deal was met with harsh backlash from the public as Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin of the Philippines was looking to finalize the deal:
“We’d want them near disaster-prone areas so they can help out if problems occur“.
The Philippines was a U.S. colony from 1898 to 1946 and had shut down the last U.S. base in 1991, through a Senate vote.
Filipino officials have stated that the United States has been attempting to procure an old airport to use as a drone base. The Daniel Romualdez Airport which has been completely destroyed in the aftermath Haiyan has been placed under control by military and police since last Monday.
Will the airport remain in U.S.control under the guise of humanitarian oversight?
House Representative from the Akbayan Partylist, Walden Bello, was very outspoken in early September, condemning the actions of the Obama administration and their pursuit to strike Syria:
“Not only must President Aquino not repeat what his predecessor, Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, did with respect to Iraq, which was to join George W. Bush’s notorious “Coalition of the Willing.” He must forcefully register our country’s opposition to Mr. Obama’s dangerous plan, and here he can take a cue from the British Parliament, which has repudiated Prime Minister Cameron’s effort to drag Britain behind the American strike.”
Continuing, Bello added:
“Secondly, a US attack on Syria directly contradicts the national interest of the Philippines, which is bound up with the welfare of our OFWs. It will put at risk the lives of the several thousand OFWs that remain in Syria.
It’s clear from the statements above that there were those within the Filipino government strongly opposed to Western intervention in Syria.
Was the typhoon a ‘soft war’ strategy of tension technique employed on the Philippines, to pressure them into supporting future destabilization campaigns directed by the West?
Then there’s the question of the Trans Pacific Partnership in all its intellectual and economic power grabbing. The TPP, said to consolidate over forty percent of world trade once its fully implemented, effectively putting an end to national sovereignty.
Wikileaks recently revealed documents exposing the TPP deal with twelve other countries being involved.
Philippines Trade Secretary Gregory Domingo has stated that the Filipino Constitution has certain limitations on how they can conduct business with foreign entities. This could be a major stumbling block for the U.S. as they would also like to lay claim to territory for RIMPAC (the Rim of the Pacific shared naval exercises) in addition to the TPP deal.
Domingo further explained the pressure to be a part of TPP:
“It (TPP) is something we have to engage in. We have no choice because the US is our second largest trading partner and many of our neighbors will become members of TPP. If they have duty-free access, for example, in the US and we don’t, it will really handicap the Philippines and affect us in a significant way.”
Was the Syrian intervention, the TPP, or RIMPAC the motive for the use secretive technology to politically punish or coerce the Philippines?
Western interests and in particular the U.S., stand to lose quite a bit if they cannot implement their military and economic plans, any delay could cause a serious rift between countries and their ‘corporate elect’ leaders.
In 2012, Iran’s chief meteorologist Hassan Mousavi claimed that the West was launching a climate war against the southern region of Iran, deliberately causing a drought.
