    Link: Why`s China Building These Huge Structures? - They`re in the middle of a desert in China and no one has any idea of what or why they`re there. Get your tin foil hats!

    they`re buildings laid out in a specific pattern to measure nuclear blast radius for both above and below ground explosions.

    Looks like an airplane graveyard. There`s a much scarier what-the-hell-is-that-for structure in Pyongyang. It would be a lot scarier if we could actually take North Korea seriously.

    they look like test facilities to me. nothing really scary or creepy. Some of the ones in the gizmodo article look shopped (i`ve seen a few shops in my time, blah, blah, blah)

    So the Chinese are conducting secret activities in the desert likely connected to the military. Unheard of.

    Obviously a staging are where they could gather all of the Chinese people
    in one place and have them simultaneously jump into the air and land thus
    throwing the earth out of orbit.

    Case solved.

    The only thing I know of that looks remotely like that are the giant mirror arrays that focus sunlight from hundreds of mirros onto a tower to produce steam which is then turned into electricity..... probably a death ray though "reaches for foil hat"

    Ugh. Those are old-as-dirt Migs they probably decommissioned a long time ago. It looks like a bombing test range to me.

    That`s not weird. They are most likely training sites.
    There`s one that is totally D.C.

    Do we still have groups of armed planes constantly flying?
    That is much creepier.

    They probably use some of them to test the surveillance frequency by changing them slightly.

    CodeJockey: Do we still have groups of armed planes constantly flying? That is much creepier.

    No, the US and NATO no longer have have strategic bombers in the air 24/7, they aren`t loaded/on call anymore either. The air national guard still occasionally sends up patrols, but even those planes aren`t armed with defensive missiles most of the time.

    The nuclear arsenal of the US is mostly dependent on submarines now. We do have anti-missile systems in place, but those are kept classified.

    Most of this just looks to be bomb testing.

    You guys should take a look at the grids they have painted out, one of which nearly matches the way the streets in down town New York are laid out.

    Creepy stuff.
