70. The former Soviet Union funded a lot of crackpottery...
if the Party thought there could be such a thing as tectonic weapons, what Soviet scientist would be willing to tell them it was nonsense; after seeing what happened to sane biologists when the Soviet Union decreed Lysenkoism to be the state evolutionary theory, I don't blame them.

The Nazis also funded crackpottery, and ran many of their sane scientists out of Germany. Just because you can find government fools willing to subsidize something, it doesn't mean there's anything to it.

Tectonic weapons and weather control satellites are tinfoli-hattery, regardless.

And THAT'S why the posters taking it seriously are being subjected to ridicule.

You may not like Bush, but to suggest that he has the power to command demons, in a serious context, is laughable. As is suggesting seriously that he may have used a tectonic weapon on Iran.

Why didn't he use them on Iraq, geniuses? Is Iran so much more powerful that the US doesn't dare attack them openly?

I'm beginning to wonder if this thread isn't the product of Freeper trollery. If so, those of you who fell for it are proving them right... not that they don't have their share of crackpots. Tesla nuts are spread about equally on left and right, I've seen.
