31, 2006, a UN imposed deadline will pass for Iran to comply with
international efforts to prevent it developing a nuclear enrichment
program that could lead to Iran acquiring nuclear weapons capacity. Iran’s
predicted non-compliance is likely to once again lead to speculation on a
possible US led military campaign to remove Iran’s hidden nuclear
facilities, and the possible use of US bunker busting weapons.
such a possibility, it is important to evaluate the background factors and
policy debates surrounding the indefinite delay of a simulated bunker
busting weapon test in June 2006, Divine Strake, that many
considered to be a simulation for the development of tactical nuclear
bunker busting weapons that would be used against Iran.
The possibility of a preemptive nuclear war against Iran
led to much internet debate and media interest over whether this could
result in extraterrestrial intervention to deter a preemptive war,
and how such intervention might occur. Some speculated that a comet strike
orchestrated by extraterrestrials may occur, while others discussed a
range of alternative extraterrestrial interventions.
the public announcement of the indefinite delay of ‘Divine Strake’ on May
25/26 led to speculation that extraterrestrials may have played a
significant role in this decision by the Pentagon. This paper explores
such a possibility and examines whether there is sufficient evidence to
conclude that extraterrestrials may have played a role in deterring
the Pentagon from launching a preemptive nuclear war against Iran.
Strake a simulation for a nuclear bunker busting weapon?
Strake’ was initially brought to public attention with a story in the
Washington Post on March 31, 2006, titled, “Pentagon to Test a Huge Conventional
mushroom cloud of dust is expected to rise over Nevada's desert in June
when the Pentagon plans to detonate a gigantic 700-ton explosive -- the
biggest open-air chemical blast ever at the Nevada Test Site -- as part
of the research into developing weapons that can destroy deeply buried
interviewed James A. Tegnelia, director of the Pentagon's
Defense Threat Reduction Agency, who confirmed that the test was
“aimed at determining how well a massive conventional bomb would perform
against fortified underground targets.”
The Washington Post
article immediately raised public concern over the reference to the
mushroom cloud it would generate, whether it was conventional bomb test or
not, and whether Divine Strake was secretly designed to simulate a
nuclear bunker busting weapon to be used on fortified underground
According to Andrew Lichterman, the first public
evidence of Project Strake was found in February 2005 Department of
Defense budget documents that revealed plans to conduct tests that would
simulate the effects of a nuclear weapon. He described a:
tunnel defeat demonstration using high explosives to simulate a low
yield nuclear weapon ground shock environment at Department of Energy’s
Nevada Test Site” in fiscal year (FY) 2006.
Lichterman discovered descriptions of the same program in
February 2006 budget documents that described the program of which the
Divine Strake test was apparently a part,
a planning tool that will improve the war fighter’s confidence in
selecting the smallest proper nuclear yield necessary to destroy
underground facilities while minimizing collateral damage.”
Lichterman, Divine Strake is part of classified Pentagon
Advanced Concepts study called Tunnel Target Defeat Advanced Concept
and Technology Demonstration(s). Here is how the “Tunnel
Target Defeat” project was described in a February 2005 Budget document:
Target Defeat Advanced Concept and Technology
Demonstration(s) (ACTD) will develop a planning tool
that will improve the war fighter’s confidence in selecting the smallest
nuclear yield necessary to destroy underground facilities while
minimizing collateral damage.
Strake was part of the “Tunnel Target Defeat Advanced Concept” project
which was unambiguously described in budget documents as an atmospheric
test using chemicals to simulate a low yield nuclear bunker busting
weapon, then Divine Strake was simulating a nuclear bunker busting weapon.
Since the US Congress had already refused funding for the study of low
yield nuclear bunker busting weapons, the official language used to
describe Divine Strake deliberately avoided all reference to it
simulating nuclear weapon explosions.
In the initial Washington
Post report of the Divine Strake test, all references to the
simulation of low yield nuclear weapons were removed, and Divine Strake
was described as follows:
The test is
aimed at determining how well a massive conventional bomb would perform
against fortified underground targets — such as military headquarters,
biological or chemical weapons stockpiles, and long-range missiles —
that the Pentagon says are proliferating among potential adversaries
around the world.
Washington Post story went on to describe the importance of
Divine Strake in the development of a conventional bunker busting
Such a bomb
would be a conventional alternative to a nuclear weapon proposed by the
Bush administration, which has run into opposition on Capitol Hill. The
Pentagon for several years has sought funding for research into the
Robust Nuclear Earth Penetrator (RNEP) — also known as the
“bunker buster” — after the administration’s 2001 Nuclear Posture Review
stated that no weapon in the U.S. arsenal could threaten a growing
number of buried targets. Congress, however, has repeatedly refused to
grant funding for a study on a nuclear bunker buster, instead directing
money toward conventional alternatives.
it can be concluded that Divine Strake was originally conceived as
a simulation for a low yield nuclear weapon, but this was covered
up in subsequent public reports that described it as a conventional test
due to the opposition of Congress to nuclear bunker busting weapons.
What was the
Significance of Divine Strake?
Hersh wrote an article in the April edition of the New Yorker that
gave a chilling account of the Bush administration's efforts to get the
Pentagon to go along with its war plans for Iran. Hersh claimed
that Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld were leading a Bush
administration effort to pressure a reluctant Pentagon to go along with
their Iran policy which involved the preemptive use of tactical nuclear
idea of using tactical nuclear weapons in such situations has gained
support from the Defense Science Board, an advisory panel whose members
are selected by Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld."
one of Hersh's sources the Defense Science Board is,
Pentagon that we can build the B61 [tactical nuclear weapon] with
more blast and less radiation," he said.
describes that the chairman of the Defense Science Board, William
Schneider, Jr., "served on an ad-hoc panel on nuclear forces sponsored
by the National Institute for Public Policy."
Hersh, the panel's report recommended treating tactical nuclear
weapons as an essential part of the U.S. arsenal and noted their
occasions when the certain and prompt destruction of high priority
targets is essential and beyond the promise of conventional weapons."
of the report are now prominent members of the Bush Administration,
including Stephen Hadley, the national-security adviser; Stephen
Cambone, the Under-Secretary of Defense for Intelligence; and
Robert Joseph, the Under-Secretary of State for Arms Control and
In an article
released on April 9, "Exopolitical Implications of a
Preemptive Nuclear War in Iran," I speculated that the test
would be used to persuade the public that "bunker busting" weapons that
generated mushroom clouds in a possible attack against Iran were not
nuclear weapons but were conventional.
administration likely plans to advertise the June test as a new
'conventional' weapon, that generates a mushroom cloud while destroying
underground facilities. Consequently, preemptive nuclear strike against
Iran's underground facilities could be marketed to a skeptical American
and global public as a series of 'new' conventional weapons being used
rather than tactical nuclear weapons.
administration could argue that the mushroom clouds generated by the new
conventional 'bunker busting' weapons are not due to them being nuclear
weapons, and any radioactive fallout was 'proof' that the bunker busting
bomb had in fact destroyed a nuclear facility.
the significance of 'Divine Strake' was threefold.
it would have made it easier to justify a preemptive war against
Iran where the public and senior military leaders were opposed to
the use of tactical nuclear weapons as an instrument of national
security policy. Divine Strake would have enabled the Bush
administration to launch a preemptive nuclear attack against Iran
without confirming that nuclear weapons had actually been used.
Second, Divine Strake would have enabled the
Pentagon to refine its understanding of low yield nuclear bunker busting
weapons that could be used against underground assets in countries such
as Iran. This would have been indispensable for minimizing collateral
damage and therefore the likely adverse public reaction to the actual
use of tactical nuclear weapons.
Finally, the testing was scheduled at a time when
increasing international attention on Iran’s determination to push ahead
with its nuclear enrichment program had made it likely that the UN
Security Council would shortly pass a resolution declaring
Iran in violation of international standards established by the
International Atomic Energy Agency. This would have justified
international sanctions either from the UN or from individual nations.
The use of preemptive military force against Iran would therefore have
been more likely thereby requiring the use of bunker busting nuclear
weapons to destroy Iran’s hidden nuclear facilities. The completion of
Divine Strake would have signaled to the Iranian government that
the US was determined to pursue military action Iran if it didn’t
reverse its nuclear policy.
the Nevada test scheduled for Divine Strike would have indicated
that a preemptive nuclear strike against Iran was impending. After having
been initially delayed from June 2 to June 23, officials from the Pentagon
first announced on May 25/26 that Divine Strake had been
indefinitely postponed. Given the significance of 'Divine Strake', the
announcement was a startling turn around.
Postponement of Divine Strake
rationale for the Pentagon’s indefinite delay was stated to be the
reversal of a key government agency over the environmental impact of the
scheduled test. In a May 26 press release, the National Nuclear
Security Administration, part of the Energy Department, announced the
withdrawal of its “Finding of No Significant Impact” for Divine Strake.
is being taken to clarify and provide further information regarding
background levels of radiation from global fallout in the vicinity of
the Divine Strake experiment.”
What caused the
withdrawal of the “no significant” environmental impact determination that
had earlier been granted by the same organization? One explanation is the
rising tide of protests by various activists, protests by indigenous
peoples, and different lawsuits organized in Nevada. These had quickly
built up with a rapid coalition of concerned citizens and indigenous
Indian organizations that were challenging the proposed test.
protests and lawsuits certainly created a public relations problem for the
Pentagon’s Threat Reduction Agency in charge of the test, it is
questionable that these would have been sufficient for the surprising
withdrawal of the “no significant” environmental impact determination that
led to the indefinite delay of Divine Strake.
A second explanation
is that the publication of the Hersh New Yorker article tilted the
argument in favor of those opposed to a preemptive nuclear strike plan for
Iran. Hersh's article first alerted the general public that plans
to use nuclear weapons had progressed beyond the contingency planning
level, and the Bush administration were seriously pushing to have these
exposed the furious policy debate occurring between the Pentagon
and the Bush administration and a near revolt among key military
personnel. Such a revolt was echoed by the unprecedented series of former
generals openly criticizing the Bush administration’s management of the
Iraq occupation in April 2006.
allegedly had more to do with a preemptive strike against Iran than
past policy on Iraq. It led to Hawks within the Bush administration,
Cheney, Rumsfeld and others identified by Hersh eventually deciding to
abandon plans for a preemptive nuclear attack.
In a more recent New Yorker
article, Hersh describes the victory of Pentagon
doves over the Bush administration hawks:
April, the military leadership, headed by General Pace, achieved
a major victory when the White House dropped its insistence that the
plan for a bombing campaign include the possible use of a nuclear device
to destroy Iran’s uranium-enrichment plant at Natanz, nearly two hundred
miles south of Tehran. …. “Bush and Cheney were dead serious about the
nuclear planning,” the former senior intelligence official told me. “
And Pace stood up to them.
world came back: ‘O.K., the nuclear option is politically unacceptable.’
” At the time, a number of retired officers, including two Army major
generals who served in Iraq, Paul Eaton and Charles Swannack,
Jr., had begun speaking out against the Administration’s handling of
the Iraq war. This period is known to many in the Pentagon as “the April
indefinite delay of Divine Strake may consequently have been a
result of internal national security policy debates, and the victory of
generals opposed to a nuclear bombing campaign against Iran. There is,
however, a third ‘other worldly’ explanation for why Divine Strake
was indefinitely postponed that needs to be
by Nuclear Weapons for Extraterrestrial Civilizations
Jean-Jacques Velasco, the former head of the organization
monitoring UFO activities in France, SEPRA, a unit within
France’s equivalent to NASA, CNES (Centre National
d'Etudes Spatiales) co-authored a book, OVNI, l'évidence, that
used an extensive UFO database collected by French authorities.
found firm empirical evidence that UFOs are extraterrestrial in
origin, and a clear correlation existed between nuclear
weapons testing and UFO sightings. Velasco’s book brought about a
swift reaction by French authorities who forced him to resign from SEPRA,
and he was reassigned to another position in CNES.
findings are supported in the testimony of a number of military
whistleblowers such as Robert Salas who was stationed at Malmstrom
Air Force Base in 1967 when seven or eight nuclear minuteman missiles that
were part of the Strategic Air Command (SAC) were
deactivated by UFOs.
described the incident as follows:
incident happened on the morning of March 16, 1967. I was ... on duty at
Oscar Flight as part of the 490th strategic missile squad and there are
five launch control facilities assigned to that particular squadron....
I received a call from my topside security guard... and he said that he
and some of the guards had been observing some strange lights flying
around the site around the launch control facility…. I said, You mean
well, he didn't know what they were but they were lights and were flying
around. They were not airplanes. They were not helicopters. They weren't
making any noise... [A little later] our missiles started shutting down
one by one. By shutting down, I mean they went into a "no-go" condition
meaning they could not be launched…. These weapons were Minuteman One
missiles and were of course nuclear-tipped warhead missiles... this
incident was of extreme concern to SAC headquarters because they
couldn't explain it.
also claims that a similar occurrence involving ten minuteman missiles at
another nearby SAC facility, Echo Flight, led to a high level
inquiry by the USAF. Salas described his surprise when the investigation
was terminated and he was instructed to remain silent. Salas’ testimony
has been partially corroborated by other military whistleblowers such as
Lt Colonel Dwynne Arneson who was also stationed at Malmstrom Air
Force base in 1967, and read a top-secret communication confirming that
UFOs were hovering near missile silos.
subsequently written about his experience and the aborted official enquiry
in his book, Faded Giant. He subsequently has concluded that
UFOs are vitally interested in nuclear weapons and have actively
interfered with these in an apparent effort to deter the US and other
countries from ever using nuclear weapons. This is supported by the
testimony of other whistleblowers such as Colonel Ross Dedrickson
who had worked with the US Air Force and Atomic Energy Commission
retiring from the Air Force I joined the Boeing company and was
responsible for accounting for all of the nuclear fleet of Minuteman
missiles. In this incident they actually photographed the UFO following
the missile as it climbed into space and, shining a beam on it,
neutralized the missile. I also learned of a number of incidents which
happened, a couple of nuclear weapons sent into space were destroyed by
the extraterrestrials …. the idea of any explosion in space by
any Earth government was not acceptable to the extraterrestrials, and
that has been demonstrated over and over. 
Dedrickson believes that nuclear explosions in space or atmosphere
are clearly not acceptable to extraterrestrials and
extraterrestrials interfere with nuclear delivery systems to prevent
nuclear explosions. Salas believes that UFOs interfere with
nuclear weapons out of an altruistic desire to prevent nuclear war on
Dedrickson gives another explanation that identifies what may be a
strong self-interest in UFOs interfering with nuclear weapons. He claims
that a nuclear weapons test over the Pacific in the 60s was:
… one that
the extraterrestrials were really concerned about because it affected
our ionosphere. In fact, the ET spacecraft were unable to operate
because of the pollution in the magnetic field which they depended upon.
It was my understanding that in either the very end of the ‘70s or the
early ‘80s that we attempted to put a nuclear weapon on the Moon and
explode it for scientific measurements and other things which was not
acceptable to the extraterrestrials.
point that extraterrestrial space craft is negatively affected by nuclear
testing demonstrates that a strong self-interest is behind the
extraterrestrial interference of nuclear weapons testing.
article analyzing Velasco’s correlation of UFOs and nuclear weapons,
French UFO researcher, Eric Julien speculates
that the use of nuclear weapons affects the time/space continuum in ways
that disrupt UFO/extraterrestrial navigation and propulsion systems.
He argues that there is a correlation between UFO behavior around nuclear
tests and 74 alleged UFO crashes documented in Ryan Wood's book,
Majic Eyes Only (2006).
This is used to
support Julien’s thesis that nuclear testing negatively affects UFOs by
impacting the space-time continuum they use to navigate to Earth. In his
book, The Science of
Extraterrestrials, Julien argues that atomic explosions
directly impact on the space-time continuum that they occupy. This
suggests that use of nuclear weapons threaten the civilizations of
extraterrestrials who use space-time to travel and to establish bases of
operation on or near the vicinity of the earth.
Based on the data
presented by Velasco, Salas, Dedrickson and
Julien, it can be proposed that the use of nuclear
weapons either threatens the key interests of extraterrestrial
civilizations on Earth or poses a direct threat to them. Consequently,
the planned use of nuclear weapons could provoke extraterrestrials to
respond in a preemptive manner. Such responses would directly impact on
the ability of the US and other militaries around the world to effectively
plan to use nuclear weapons in military operations.
weapons pose a threat of some undefined nature to extraterrestrial
civilizations or their interests, what does this suggest about the
means used by extraterrestrial civilizations to respond to the possible
preemptive use of nuclear weapons? More specifically, how would they have
responded to the Bush administrations plans to use nuclear weapons against
Based on historical precedents described by Salas and
Dedrickson, it appears that extraterrestrials have the capacity
to deactivate nuclear weapons while either in storage or in flight,
and to destroy nuclear weapons while in flight. Consequently,
extraterrestrials could give warnings through their communications with
individuals and military officials of impending action to prevent the
possible use of nuclear weapons.
warnings went unheeded then extraterrestrials could take a range of
defensive measures based on their influence over key policy makers and
institutions, and their ability to impact on the capacities of nations to
use nuclear weapons. Such measures could culminate in a coordinated set of
extraterrestrial responses, a ‘Divine Strike’, to prevent the
Bush administration launching a preemptive nuclear war against Iran.
These responses may have been communicated and/or displayed, and actively
deterred the US military from pursuing a preemptive nuclear attack against
At this point, it can be asked whether the Pentagon’s
announcement of an indefinite delay of Divine
Strake on May 25/26, was in any way deterred by a possible
Divine Strike by extraterrestrials. Furthermore, it can be asked whether
public awareness of a possible extraterrestrial ‘divine strike’ played a
role in the delay.
Historical evidence supporting a possible
extraterrestrial divine strike to prevent a preemptive nuclear war
can be found in the publicly verified relationship between nuclear weapons
testing and UFO sightings, extraterrestrial interference in the storage of
nuclear weapons, and the alleged destruction of nuclear weapons by
extraterrestrials. If extraterrestrials have acted in the past to
interfere with or destroy nuclear weapons, it can be assumed that they
would not have remained idle if a nuclear preemptive war against Iran
affected their vital interests on Earth, and/or their ability to navigate
in the Earth’s vicinity.
policy makers familiar with past extraterrestrial interventions to
make inoperable or to destroy nuclear weapons, would have factored such a
possibility into their calculations over the effectiveness of a preemptive
nuclear campaign against Iran. It may have been decided that such a
campaign would have been compromised by extraterrestrial interference in
the delivery systems of tactical nuclear weapons.
Extraterrestrial Divine Strike
awareness of a possible extraterrestrial ‘Divine Strike’ first emerged
after a series of articles between Eric Julien and the author that
discussed the extraterrestrial nuclear relationship, and how this related
to the Bush administration’s plans for a preemptive nuclear strike against
Iran. In the April 2006 edition of the Exopolitics Journal, Julien
argued that nuclear weapons testing threatened
extraterrestrial civilizations due to the disruptive effects of
such weapons on the space time continuum used by them to visit the
some statistical data on the correlation between nuclear weapons testing
and UFO sightings/crashes to support his hypothesis. He speculated that
the threat posed by humanity's irresponsible use of nuclear weapons could
lead to extraterrestrials taking preemptive actions to prevent such use.
Julien’s paper was followed on April 8 by Hersh’s article
describing the steps taken by the Bush administration to secure military approval for a
preemptive nuclear strike against Iran. I subsequently
authored an article on April 9 discussing the plans for a preemptive nuclear attack
and how this might be responded to by extraterrestrials that might be
directly affected by the use of such weapons. I argued that
extraterrestrials could respond in a number of ways to deter the US from
launching a preemptive nuclear war against Iran.
then authored a paper on April 11, "May 25, 2006 - Day of
Destiny," where he discussed his research concerning Comet
73P Schwassman-Wachman 3. He linked the use of nuclear weapons and
the threat they pose to extraterrestrial civilizations, to the scheduled
May passage of the comet. He cited coded messages contained in some crop
circles to support his argument that the unexplained break up of comet 73P
in 1995 was linked to extraterrestrials.
argued that extraterrestrials deliberately fragmented the comet due
to their awareness that nuclear weapons would eventually be used in a war
and that the extraterrestrials' intent was to time the comet's passage to
coincide with a predicted nuclear war. Using an online NASA orbital
simulator, Julien tracked the comet's passage, and argued that
several fragments from comet Schwassman-Wachman's, would pass
through the Earth's ecliptic plane on May 25.
This in his
view was the most likely date of impact. Using data gained from his own
private extraterrestrial communications, Julien predicted that the
impact would occur in the Atlantic Ocean and generate giant tsunamis.
Julien’s analysis and Atlantic Ocean impact prediction led to
great public interest and heated debate, including a public statement I
issued on April 25 disassociating myself from Julien’s
comet prediction. An article in Aljazeera on May 25
reported widespread panic in Morocco as a result of Julien’s comet
The result of
the widespread public debate over possible extraterrestrial responses to a
preemptive nuclear strike and Julien’s comet impact prediction, firmly
brought into the public realm an association between nuclear weapons and
extraterrestrial civilizations, and possible extraterrestrial responses.
In conclusion, possible extraterrestrial intervention may
have been a key factor in deterring key policy makers from pursuing a
preemptive nuclear war against Iran. Extraterrestrial intervention
may have helped tilt the policy debate in favor of ‘Pentagon doves’
opposed to a preemptive nuclear campaign. Also, public awareness of
possible extraterrestrial intervention may have further helped deter
policy makers from pursuing a preemptive nuclear policy.
that extraterrestrial intervention would have been identified and
disseminated by members of the general public may have again helped deter
a preemptive nuclear attack. Consequently, extraterrestrial intervention
and growing public awareness of possible extraterrestrial responses, a
‘Divine Strike’, may have been key factors leading to the
indefinite delay of ‘Divine Strake’.
a possible ‘Divine Strike’ deter ‘Divine Strake’?
that Divine Strake was indefinitely postponed on May 25/26 was
strong evidence of a very significant policy shift having occurred over
the wisdom of a preemptive nuclear strike against Iran. This was soon
followed by a May 31 Press conference where Secretary of State,
Condoleezza Rice, offered to “come to the table with our E.U.
colleagues and meet with Iran's representatives.” The US willingness
to sit down in face to face discussions with Iran was described as a
“staggering turnaround of U.S. policy regarding the Islamic Republic”.
indefinite delay of Divine Strake and subsequent diplomatic
overtures to Iran suggest that the preemptive nuclear war option against
Iran has been indefinitely pushed back or completely removed as a policy
Furthermore, the fact that this announcement of Divine
Strake’s delay occurred on Julien’s so called "Day of Destiny" may
be entirely coincidental or raises the possibility that policy
makers were concerned about possible extraterrestrial intervention against
plans for a preemptive nuclear war.
Some of the
ways extraterrestrials could intervene were described in a May 29 Aljazeera article,
where I outlined a number of options that might be used by
extraterrestrials to affect policy as opposed to a comet strike predicted
by Julien. Key among these was past historical examples of
extraterrestrials deactivating nuclear weapons which would have made a
successful military strike using such weapons highly
The indefinite delay of Divine Strake was
partially influenced by domestic political opposition in the US arising
from increasing demonstrations and lawsuits over its environmental impact.
While public opposition was determined and increasingly well organized, it
is unlikely that this on its own would have achieved the cancellation of
more significant factor in the delay appears to have been the apparent
victory of Pentagon ‘doves’ over Bush administration ‘hawks’ in the heated
internal policy debate over plans for a military solution to the Iran
nuclear problem. Hersh’s description of the policy victory won by
senior Pentagon officials opposed to a nuclear preemptive strike as the
“April Revolution” does point to Bush administration hawks suffering a
significant policy defeat.
The third explanation that there may
have been an extraterrestrial factor in terms of a possible ‘divine
strike’ that helped deter the Bush administration from pursuing its
preemptive nuclear war plans for Iran needs to be considered.
The way in
which extraterrestrials communicated such a possible ‘Divine Strike’ to
the Bush administration, the Pentagon and the general public; and the
actual way in which such a ‘Divine Strike’ would have unfolded can be best
deduced from historical precedents over extraterrestrial intervention in
the deactivation and/or destruction of nuclear weapons. In the author’s
view, preemptive extraterrestrial action to prevent a planned nuclear
strike against Iran was a credible deterrent for policy makers seriously
contemplating a nuclear strike against Iran.
'Divine Strake' appears to have been a red line that the
Pentagon/Bush administration finally did not cross and have backed off
indefinitely. If extraterrestrials did or planned to intervene as the
above analysis suggests, then the world's first preemptive nuclear war has
been put off indefinitely as a result of extraterrestrial
exopolitical debates in the public realm over the extent and nature
of extraterrestrial intervention may have impacted on the policy making
process. The possible actions that extraterrestrials might have taken to
prevent a preemptive nuclear war against Iran growing public
awareness of this, may have been a significant deterrent for policy makers
in the Bush administration.
Domestic political factors and
internal policy debates undoubtedly influenced the Bush administration
decision to indefinitely delay Divine Strake on May 25/26, 2006. More
unknown is the significance of possible extraterrestrial intervention to
deter a preemptive nuclear attack against Iran, and widespread public
debate over such an intervention.
announcement of Divine Strake’s indefinite delay may be due
entirely to domestic political factors and internal policy debates. If
this is the case, then the forthcoming August 31 deadline for Iran to
comply with UN Security Council Resolution to stop its nuclear enrichment
program may again lead to the threat of military intervention against
Iran, and Divine Strake may again be scheduled for testing.
a possible extraterrestrial ‘Divine Strike’ may have deterred the US from
pursuing such a policy thereby suggesting if Divine Strake does go ahead,
it is unlikely to presage a nuclear strike against Iran.
The May 25/26
announcement of the indefinite delay of Divine Strake may go down
in history as the day a preemptive nuclear war was prevented by possible
intervention of extraterrestrials and rising public awareness of such an
