    The hole in the atmosphere in the arctic and possibly the antarctic has a vaccuum of sorts so if in case of nuclear fallout would end up in those areas i would think its just tthe way of earth cleaning itself

  2. [4:48]
    Lo! Allah forgiveth not that a partner should be ascribed unto Him. He forgiveth (all) save that to whom He will. Whoso ascribeth partners to Allah, he hath indeed invented a tremendous sin.

    Hast thou not seen those who praise themselves for purity ? Nay, Allah purifieth whom He will, and they will not be wronged even the hair upon a date-stone.

    See, how they invent lies about Allah! That of itself is flagrant sin.

    Hast thou not seen those unto whom a portion of the Scripture hath been given, how they believe in idols and false deities, and how they say of those (idolaters) who disbelieve: "These are more rightly guided than those who believe" ?

    Those are they whom Allah hath cursed, and he whom Allah hath cursed, thou (O Muhammad) wilt find for him no helper.

    Or have they even a share in the Sovereignty ? Then in that case, they would not give mankind even the speck on a date-stone.

    Or are they jealous of mankind because of that which Allah of His bounty hath bestowed upon them ? For We bestowed upon the house of Abraham (of old) the Scripture and wisdom, and We bestowed on them a mighty kingdom.

    And of them were (some) who believed therein and of them were (some) who turned away from it. Hell is sufficient for (their) burning.

    Lo! Those who disbelieve Our revelations, We shall expose them to the Fire. As often as their skins are consumed We shall exchange them for fresh skins that they may taste the torment. Lo! Allah is ever Mighty, Wise.

    And as for those who believe and do good works, We shall make them enter Gardens underneath which rivers flow – to dwell therein for ever; there for them are pure companions – and We shall make them enter plenteous shade.

    Lo! Allah commandeth you that ye restore deposits to their owners, and, if ye judge between mankind, that ye judge justly. Lo! comely is this which Allah admonisheth you. Lo! Allah is ever Hearer, Seer.

    O ye who believe! Obey Allah, and obey the messenger and those of you who are in authority; and if ye have a dispute concerning any matter, refer it to Allah and the messenger if ye are (in truth) believers in Allah and the Last Day. That is better and more seemly in the end.

    Hast thou not seen those who pretend that they believe in that which is revealed unto thee and that which was revealed before thee, how they would go for judgment (in their disputes) to false deities when they have been ordered to abjure them ? Satan would mislead them far astray.

    And when it is said unto them: Come unto that which Allah hath revealed and unto the messenger, thou seest the hypocrites turn from thee with aversion.

    How would it be if a misfortune smote them because of that which their own hands have sent before (them) ? Then would they come unto thee, swearing by Allah that they were seeking naught but harmony and kindness.

    Those are they, the secrets of whose hearts Allah knoweth. So oppose them and admonish them, and address them in plain terms about their souls.

    We sent no messenger save that he should be obeyed by Allah’s leave. And if, when they had wronged themselves, they had but come unto thee and asked forgiveness of Allah, and asked forgiveness of the messenger, they would have found Allah Forgiving, Merciful.

    But nay, by thy Lord, they will not believe (in truth) until they make thee judge of what is in dispute between them and find within themselves no dislike of that which thou decidest, and submit with full submission.

    And if We had decreed for them: Lay down your lives or go forth from your dwellings, but few of them would have done it; though if they did what they are exhorted to do it would be better for them, and more strengthening;

    And then We should bestow upon them from Our presence an immense reward,

    And should guide them unto a straight path.

    Whoso obeyeth Allah and the messenger, they are with those unto whom Allah hath shown favour, of the prophets and the saints and the martyrs and the righteous. The best of company are they!

    That is bounty from Allah, and Allah sufficeth as Knower.

  3. IndiaBharat, Australia, Japan,Vietnam, Singapur,Myanmar, South Africa, South America and other countris must encash and prosper using Antartica's natural resources, in an eco friendly way.

  4. We have known for centuries that artic has so many riches. The government's instead of dealing with how they have destroyed the world by, they are just continuing to find more ways to do so.

    Even their idea of mining the moon is insane. What can possibly go wrong with defacing the moon???

  5. This is nonsense. "Russia controlling the Arctic". What about Egypt controlling the Sues canal ?? Panama controlling Panama canal,..
    It happens Russia borders the Arctic. That is path of arctic shipping route that runs close and along to Russian border.

  6. How is the Ocean Bed more shallow, compared to the rest of the World's Oceans?
    The Traffic Route is a money maker,, for certain, however it is not any different than the rest of the Oceans…

  7. Thanks to America, Heroin is a Global Pandemic. American Soldiers use the Taliban to traffic Heroin Globally, namely to the States…..
    While with that illegal funding, the Taliban buys weapons..
    The United States has done the same thing in South America… When will the World STOP believing Americas Lies? The US is focused on Corrupting these Nations
    by funding Narco Terrorist…. The US Gov is who is to blame…

  8. I don’t understand the word bid. Is that a term people who have no claims use? Why would Russia have to bid? Russia bids lmdfao. Just look at the situation and you will understand…. eventually. There will be no bid, no asking permission nor caring what any country thinks. I’m Canadian so I know full well how Russia feels. Look at our borders. We will do what we want up there. Absorb that. Feel me?

  9. @ time marker ~ ~21:13?; WION It is typical that your report calling attention to what is referred to as, "targeting" of Indians in S.Afri~ to stoke some animos- against the original, natural, 1st resident dwellers of that region of THEIR (Our = natrually occurring very Melaninateds) there. Yet at the same time, ignoring the Fact that Indian presence all over the Continent that has been invaded & conquered by so many foreigners, are just one of many elements of the backwards socio-econ., race based, unjust stratification that further marginalises the original, natural, 1st resident dwellers of So. Afri~. Shame on you WION. Shame on you madame Palki. Shame on ALL the foreign invading occupiers of the Continent that the Rest have exploited & named A-f-r-i-c-a.

  10. Our leader's greed over Antarctica . Fight for power destroying the new world , Why are they even there ? !!!!! We need God to intervene . The 1% and hungry power driven politicians . What next ? thank God they can't get any further in Antarctica . Ice is actually protecting the untouched world . We the people don't need all this resources . They don't need to be there period ! !!!!!! That greed will destroy us all. Hopefully it's not to late for us if we do something about it . The whole world must join in on get them out of there. I am so upset about the exploitation and abuse. They just keep on going to the sky , what now the 1% will move to Mars and destroy our planet after they got done with it ? ??!!!!!!! We can't just sit around and let them do that.
