Twin quakes strike Indonesia

TWIN earthquakes struck early today off the coast of Papau, the largest province of Indonesia, the US Geological Survey said.

The first 6.6 magnitude tremor struck at 2.10am local time near the southern coast of Papau at a depth of 21.2km.

The second, measuring 7.2, struck at 2.11am local time.

Local officials warned the second quake had the potential to trigger a tsunami, AP reported.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.

It rattled the town of Tual on nearby Maluku island, said Fauzi, chief of the Indonesian meteorological and geophysics agency, who had no further reports from the field.

The area closest to the epicentre is a remote, sparsely populated part of the country. It is located some 2900 kilometres east of the capital, Jakarta.

It is closer to Darwin, which sits some 900 kilometres to the south.

Indonesia straddles a series of fault lines that make the vast island nation prone to volcanic and seismic activity.

Interesting article…not just because of an unidentified helicopter but…

Did you know we still have forces involved in Mogadishu?

Did you know about the U.S. military’s Special Operations Command Africa?

Or the U.S. Africa Command?

Or that we have 7,100 African Union peacekeepers in Mogadishu?

We have so many “conflicts”, “wars”, areas that need peace keepers that its hard to keep track.

I am sure back in the simpler days of Jesus all of these fell under the collective title “wars and rumors of wars”.

Can you imagine him calling it the “oversea contingency operation and rumors of oversea contingency operation”?

No, I couldn’t either.  Luckily for us he kept it simple and said:

“6You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8All these are the beginning of birth pains.” – Matthew 24:6-8 (NIV)

Whose helicopter is it? Report of attack on Somali coast town leaves unanswered questions

MOGADISHU, Somalia –  MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) — U.S. military officials and the European Union Naval Force denied on Monday that one of their helicopters was involved in an exchange of fire reported by residents of a coastal town in Somalia.

Residents of the coastal town of Merca, about 50 miles (70 kilometers) southwest of Mogadishu, said a military helicopter flew over the town on Sunday and that militants fired on it. Some residents said the helicopter fired back but caused no major damage.

But no one seems to know who the helicopter belongs to.

It’s not just wars and rumors of wars we are seeing and dealing with as a world but also a new kind of war.  Wars fought without uniforms and by unconventional means.  More signs, check out the stats below:

According to a Wikipedia list of wars, the past 500 years have witnessed an increase in the frequency of wars:

15th Century – 29 wars

16th Century – 59 wars

17th Century – 75 wars

18th Century – 69 wars

19th Century – 294 wars

20th Century – 278 wars (wars transformed to unconventional as well)

The first decade of the 21st Century has already witnessed 55 wars, putting humanity on course for 550  wars over the next one hundred year period.

Have these wars increased in intensity?  Yes.

Matthew 24:4-8 (NIV) – “4Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. 5For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8All these are the beginning of birth pains.”

Tropical storm brings fresh flood misery to Mexico

Mexico has been hit by a new storm, compounding the flood misery which has affected one million people nationwide.

Tropical Storm Georgette brought heavy rains and pounding waves to the Baja California region on the Pacific coast.

The storm, now downgraded to a Tropical Depression, made landfall near the resort town of Cabo San Lucas.

It hit amid the worst rainy season ever recorded in some parts and just days after Hurricane Karl flooded large areas and killed at least 15 people.

Although Georgette has reduced in power it is still bringing strong winds and torrential rain to the area as it moves across the Gulf of California.

In Baja California, the region’s director of civil defence, Jose Gajon, said that about 1,000 families had been evacuated from areas vulnerable to flooding and storm surges.
