The loss of the Space Shuttle
Columbia comes at a time of international tension over
a preemptive war against Iraq.
question that can be asked is, ‘is their a connection between the
two?' After all, over the last two weeks there has been an
extraordinary diplomatic showdown between the US and the German and
French governments over the need for a preemptive war against Iraq.
Was this merely a diplomatic spat between firm transatlantic
friends, or signs of a tension that has deeper roots?
Iraq was the home of the first recorded civilization on the planet -
Sumer. In 3800 BC, Sumer reached a
surprisingly high level of civilization in a very short time. It had
a sophisticated calendar, remarkable astronomical information and
complex medical procedures. Sumer then disappeared around 1800 BC in
a series of events that left widespread environmental damage.
According to the Sumerian scholar,
Zecharia Sitchin, the Sumerians reached their high
civilization with external help. However, there was no other known
civilization that could have helped at the time. Sitchin's
translations of thousands of Sumerian cuneiform texts revealed an
answer. The Sumerians were helped by an advanced race of beings from
the stars -
According to the Sumerian records, the Anunnaki helped create Sumer
by placing their own personnel on Earth to govern and civilize
different human settlements.
There is biblical support for such a scenario. In Book 6, verse 4,
of Genesis the following paragraph appears:
"The Nephilim were on the earth in
those days-and also afterwards-when the sons of God went to the
daughters of men and had children by them. They were the heroes
of old, men of renown."
Were the ‘Nephilim'
the same beings as the Anunnaki?
believed this was the case. Other biblical texts such as the
Book of Enoch, also discuss the
Nephilim and their activities on the Earth.
If there was an ancient extraterrestrial presence on the Earth, then
why haven't we learned of this before? According to a group of 100
former military and government ‘whistle blowers', there exists a
number of clandestine government projects that seek to
reverse engineer recovered extraterrestrial
technology. These former officials played various roles
either in these secret projects, or in suppressing information of
the extraterrestrial technology.
If there has been an historic extraterrestrial presence on Earth,
and different clandestine organizations are seeking to recover and
reverse engineer the technology of this race of beings, how might
this relate to the Columbia tragedy? Might there be
buried in the sands of Southern Iraq,
extraterrestrial technology that is coveted by
clandestine government organizations?
In 2002, a German archaeological team began to do radar mapping of
an ancient Sumerian City, Uruk, in preparation for renewing
excavations. Uruk was the first capital city in Sumer, and therefore
the first recorded city in Earth's history. If there was a presence
of an advanced race of beings, the Anunnaki, helping Sumerian
civilization, it would have been likely that some of the technology
the Anunnaki possessed would have been located in Uruk.
Given the advanced nature of these
beings, the technology would have been protected in ways that
rendered it safe from human interference until such time as the
Anunnaki required to use it. The question that emerges here is, ‘is
there some connection between the resumption of archaeological
digging in Uruk, with Germany's refusal to participate in a
preemptive war against Iraq?'
The description of Germany and France as part of the ‘old Europe' by
US Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, signals a deep
conflict between the US and its major European allies. Rather than
being simply a tension of different methods in getting Iraq to
disarm, the conflict may well mask a deeper desire to gain access
and control of extraterrestrial technology buried in ancient
Sumerian cities in Iraq.
It is very possible that the Space shuttle Columbia was a
high profile victim in a proxy war being conducted by clandestine
government organizations over hidden extraterrestrial technology.
The destruction of Columbia may well be a signal to US based
clandestine organizations by their European counterparts, not to
launch a preemptive attack against Iraq. If Columbia was destroyed,
rather than breaking up due to some mechanical failure, then it
would be clear that the responsible organizations possess a weapons
technology far beyond anything possessed by terrorist organizations
and most states.
The loss of the Columbia Space Shuttle was a tragedy in every
respect. If it was a high profile victim in a proxy war, then it is
up to us to discover the truth about the organizations involved in
such a struggle, and to make these organizations accountable to
elected public officials.
