Binocular Snapshot for 3/11/2011

This 8.9 earthquake & tsunami prophesied by the May 15th Prophecy is just more contraction to the "birth pains" and more evidence to the 100% accuracy of the May 15th Prophecy

Massive tsunami devastates Japan

"Hundreds of people are dead after one of the strongest earthquakes ever recorded struck Japan, triggering a devastating 10-metre-high tsunami along parts of the country's northeastern coastline.

The massive 8.9-magnitude earthquake struck on Friday afternoon local time, creating gigantic waves which swept away cars, boats, homes and people as the surging water overwhelmed coastal barriers.

Widespread fires burned out of control and Japan's nuclear industry was on alert as reactors shut down automatically as a safety precaution."

The most powerful earthquake to hit Japan in recorded history struck off the island nation's shore on Friday

"Collapsing buildings, touching off widespread fires and unleashing walls of water up to 30 feet high.

The waves swept across rice fields, engulfed towns, dragged houses onto highways, and tossed cars and boats like toys. It reaching as far as about six miles (10 kilometers) inland in Miyagi Prefecture on Japan's east coast.

Hundreds of people were dead and hundreds more missing, Japanese media reported, citing local and national police. Tens of thousands of people were displaced, according to Japan's Kyodo News agency."

"Police say 200 to 300 bodies have been found in the city of Sendai, the closest major city to the quake's epicenter, wire reports said. According to NHK, the national broadcaster, 188 were confirmed dead and 700 people were missing nationwide as of 5:30 a.m. local time"

The natural disaster could derail the country's nascent economic recovery and increase Japan's already massive public debt, which is 200% of gross domestic product.

Even more ominously, the footprint of the aftershocks in Japan appeared to be spreading, not shrinking.

Some 12 hours after the Sendai quake first struck, a new wave of seismic activity rocked the Japanese archipelago back and forth along both coasts."

Taliban attack Bagram base near Kabul

"The US Media Information Center has confirmed that there had been an assault on the Bagram airbase, north of the Afghan capital Kabul, a Press TV correspondent reported.

Taliban militants have fired several rockets into the heavily fortified Bagram Air Field near Kabul, the main base for US-led troops in Afghanistan.

The base is the frequent target of rocket and mortar attacks. Last year, militants launched more than a dozen attacks on Bagram, killing several US-led troops.

Gates Faults U.S. Allies on Afghan War

In a deliberately undiplomatic speech to NATO defense ministers, Mr. Gates called on European allies to put aside their domestic politics and work with the United States to secure the “semblance of normalcy” that he said

Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates sharply rebuked the United States’ allies on Friday for preparing to effectively abandon Afghanistan, threatening what he described as tenuous progress in the nearly decade-old war.

There was no immediate reaction from the NATO allies, and it remains unclear how much they will be swayed by Mr. Gates’s words. Their main business at the session was an expected endorsement of a proposal for transferring some districts in Afghanistan to Afghan control

The defense secretary’s speech was aimed at a European continent where the war, a retaliation for the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, that was supposed to be over in months, has become more and more unpopular."
