The “Weapon” in the Ural Mountains

John Kerry Did It


The leader of a right wing group in Russia is claiming that the meteor that exploded over the Ural mountains was not a meteor, but a new weapon being tested by the United States.  An article in “Russia Today” claims it did not explode, but was shot down by Russia’s air defenses.

Political firebrand Vladimir Zhirinovsky, leader of Russia’s Liberal Democratic Party, a minor right-wing conservative group, blames the US for the meteor shower; he reportedly said that “those were not meteorites, it was Americans testing their new weapons.” Voice of Russia says Zhirinovsky speculated that US Secretary of State John Kerry was “looking for” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov to warn him about the “provocation against Russia” in advance.

Well isn’t that special!  So we have a “doomsday weapon” of some sort, and we tested it for the first time over a mountainous area of Russia.  Sounds logical to me.  Here are both governments’ official responses.

Russia’s defense ministry denied any involvement, saying it “took no action related to the incident”. And both NASA and Russian space agency Roscosmos have confirmed that “the explosion was, in fact, the result of a meteor entering Earth’s atmosphere,” (not, as Zhirinovsky believes, a US weapon).

Sounds to me like another disaster movie in the making.  That’d be two resulting from one meteor.  Writers, Producers, and Directors must be salivating.
