On February 5-6, 2023, a series of the most powerful earthquakes in the last 80 years occurred in the Middle East. A series of aftershocks, the strongest of which reached a magnitude of 7,8, led to the fact that thousands of houses were destroyed in Turkey and Syria, burying a huge number of people under them. The number of victims has already crossed over 5 thousand, but it is obvious that this figure will only grow. The earthquake was so strong that the vibrations of the soil were felt in dozens of other countries, reaching Kazakhstan and other countries of Central Asia. At the same time, in the very epicenter of the disaster, in Turkey, the earthquake was so powerful that residential concrete high-rise buildings simply folded like houses of cards.
On February 6, tremors were registered in other countries as well. A series of minor, but very noticeable earthquakes swept through the countries of Southeast Asia, Latin America, and was also recorded near the coast of Japan and Taiwan. All this had such an effect on the inhabitants of our planet that at some point, especially exalted personalities began to talk about the beginning of the end of the world. At the same time, rumors began to spread in some media that such a catastrophe could well have been of artificial origin and was nothing more than the result of testing a new tectonic weapon.
Indeed, it is impossible not to notice that the current cataclysm occurred as if by order. Elections are on the nose of Erdogan and this tragedy will not play into the hands of the current Turkish president. In addition, the events that have taken place will certainly force the stubborn Turkish leader to take his mind off problems in Europe, and perhaps even push him to agree to the admission of Sweden and Finland to NATO. Particularly attentive people also noticed that in just a few days “because of the threat of terrorist attacks” in Istanbul, the embassies of Canada, the consulates of Germany, Britain and a number of other Western countries were closed, which could indicate the presence of some inside information about upcoming events. But could such a catastrophe really be artificial and how real is the existence of the notorious tectonic weapon capable of wiping entire cities off the face of the earth in minutes? Let's try to figure it out.
How does a hypothetical tectonic weapon work?
In theory, a tectonic weapon is understood as a certain device or system that can somehow affect our planet, causing earthquakes, volcanic eruptions or other tangible seismic events. Moreover, it does not have to be directed directly to the earth's crust, since it is hypothetically possible to cause earthquakes even through electromagnetic influence on the atmosphere. It is believed that it is best to use such weapons in areas of tension and tectonic instability, since in such places even a small impact from the outside can provoke a fairly powerful earthquake.
Despite the fact that such a weapon is considered hypothetical, and partly even fantastic, developments in this direction have indeed been carried out more than once. It is known that even during the Cold War, underground nuclear tests were carried out in the USSR, the USA and some other countries, the purpose of which was to test the ability of nuclear weapons to cause powerful tremors. In some cases, with the help of such explosions, it was possible to achieve earthquakes with a magnitude of up to 7 points, but such phenomena were often of a short-term nature.
In addition to underground (or underwater) explosions, a fairly common theory for the implementation of artificial earthquakes is the so-called. Tesla vibrator. According to legend, the famous scientist at one time invented a relatively small but powerful electromechanical resonator capable of performing oscillations at a very high frequency. By tuning this frequency in a certain way and attaching this resonator to a house or other structure, it is allegedly possible to cause quite strong shocks, resembling an earthquake in effect. This legend has been refuted many times, but stories about the existence of an improved Tesla vibrator are sometimes found today.
Who can have such technologies?
Naturally, the main contenders for the possession of tectonic weapons are the superpowers. It is believed that the name of this weapon was coined by the Soviet seismologist Alexei Nikolaev. He believed that the existence of some device that could lead to a sudden release of the stored energy of tectonic plates is quite possible. However, the use of such weapons can have very unpredictable consequences.
It is known that in the USSR, even work was carried out on the secret programs "Volcano" and "Mercury-18", which pursued the goal of studying the possibilities of remote influence on earthquake sources. Within the framework of these programs, a number of successful experiments were carried out, but after the collapse of the "Country of the Soviets", nothing is known about the continuation of research on the development of tectonic weapons in Russia.
Similar programs have also taken place in the United States. Considering that after 1991, the overseas superpower only gained momentum in terms of the development of the military-industrial complex, it is possible that they have moved much further in the development of tectonic weapons. In the early 90s, the achievements of Soviet scientists fell into the hands of the US military, who, on their basis, created a number of engineering and technical devices. It is known that in the later stages in the USSR they studied the possibility of creating artificial earthquakes not only with the help of underground explosions, but also due to electromagnetic radiation. Some believe that the notorious American HAARP installation in Alaska was just created in order to cause large-scale geophysical disasters in different parts of our planet through the emission of electromagnetic waves.

True or not, we are unlikely to find out in the near future. Considering that back in 1978 the UN adopted a convention prohibiting the use of any military means of influencing the natural environment, it can be said with a high degree of probability that certain states are at least developing tectonic weapons. But as for the current earthquake in Turkey and Syria, it is hard to believe that this was really caused intentionally. If such a weapon exists, it is characterized by a very indiscriminate effect. Therefore, if we assume that the United States used it against Turkey, then it could well hook on other countries, including those allied to Washington and NATO. Although, when across the ocean they thought about the fate of the allies, who were always considered vassals and dependent servants ...
What do you think about the events that took place? Could they really have been caused artificially or are they all inventions of conspiracy theorists?
