136. This thread posed a hypothetical question:
Edited on Mon Dec-29-03 06:29 PM by Minstrel Boy
"Could US have caused the Iran earthquake?"

Given what we know about the Pentagon's interests in exotic technologies, the trillions that have vanished from its budgets over the last decade, and the warning from a Secretary of Defense of the potential threat posed by electromagnetic weapons which could influence the weather, even triggering earthquakes, and given all we don't know about the Pentagon's top secret r&d, I should think the most knowledgable response to this question is "I don't know."

I haven't seen a single post in this thread that asserts "Bush caused the earthquake." But I've seen many sarcastic posts ridiculing this position which no one here holds, and asserting instead the contrary, and showing no respect for a differing opinion.

When we have the words of a Secretary of Defense stating that such weapons pose at least a hypothetical threat, I would have thought this hypothetical question deserving of a more humble response from the guardians of conventional wisdom.
