A U.S. weapon test?
In the political realm, Russian Liberal Democrat leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky, who is known for his controversial statements, blamed the blast not on a meteor, but on the United States testing a new weapon.
“You’re like some primitive tribe. What meteorite?” he said, according to RT.com. “When something falls – it’s man-made. People are warmongers and provocateurs.”
And little earthquakes in Tonopah,Nevada (proving grounds) right after N. Korea's test -- does give one to pause. Oh, and a 6.6 yesterday in Druzhina, Russia.
