Strong Earthquake Hits CLUSTER OF MILITARY BASES At The Edge Of Antarctica

On the first weekend of the new US administration, a strong quake struck the South Sandwich Islands, where at least eight nations maintain military bases.  The open threats of communist Argentina in this region, coupled with the still unsolved explosion of a Chilean C-130 Hercules (see Dec 13, 2019 article) and the mysterious 2017 sinking of the ARA San Juan submarine, make it reasonable to question whether today's "earthquake" was in fact an attack by a seismic, nuclear,  or space weapon.
Antarctic legends aside, China would need to control the Drake Passage for any real hope of victory in Global War.  Great Britain has controlled this key meeting point of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans for almost 200 years, and had to defend her interests in the 1982 Falklands War (which began not on the Falklands proper, but the remote, uninhabited South Sandwich Islands).  The South Shetland Islands struck today differ in that (being below 60⁰ S latitude) they are subject to the Antarctic Treaty and their British soveriegnty is "neither recognized nor disputed".  The Treaty also stipulates that these lands are not to be militarized.  All nations state that their militaries are present for peaceful research purposes, yet any tactician can see the military benefit of presence at the world's southernmost ice-free ports to control both the seas off Cape Horn and access to the seasonally icebound Antarctic Peninsula.  THIS POINT is where the temblor struck today, a seismic event reported at more that 7 Richter magnitude, suspect for both its shallow depth (<10km) and short duration (2-5 seconds as felt in Santiago, Chile).
