America's symbol cracks in earthquake

Washington Monument - a phallic masonic symbol of America's power - is the only structure closed for repair works.


(Mathaba) The 5.8-magnitude earthquake that struck Washington D.C., didn’t cause widespread damages or injuries, but it did put cracks in the Washington Monument.

As one of America’s most important landmarks, the 127-year-old Washington Monument standing 555-foot high is the world's tallest obelisk. It was built to honor the first president of the United States of America - George Washington.

The US National Park Service spokesman Bill Line confirmed that there is a four-foot-long by one-inch-wide crack on the Washington Monument, located at the very top of the monument on the west side of the pyramidion. The Park Service also said that the structure has four “significant” cracks.

After unconfirmed reports suggested the monument was tilting, park officials said it suffered damage, but it isn’t leaning.

Interestingly, as the symbol of the capital and America's power, the Washington Monument is the only structure damaged by the earthquake in Washington D.C.

The monument will be closed indefinitely for repairs. But all other monuments that were temporarily shut down for inspections after the earthquake, including the Jefferson and Lincoln Memorials, are now open for business.

The quake occurred during the "Night of Power" which is the last 10 days and nights of Ramadan, and during the launch of the ground invasion of Libya by U.S. and other NATO allied mercenaries.

Muammar Qaddafi who is leading the resistance for defending Africa's wealth from the bankrupt western states invading Libya, is a devout Muslim who refused to allow Libya to be tainted by capitalism.

All national resources were shared among the population of Libya thus giving them free health care, free education, all expenses for treatment or education abroad if required, free house, free electricity, $60,000 on marriage, and $500 deposited from the remaining wealth into each Libyan's account.

People around the world have been praying for his people's victory and for the demise of NATO as a blatant terrorist force having waged wars around the world killing millions in order to plunder resource rich nations.
