(9-25)   BBC – Pakistan quake island off Gwadar ’emits flammable gas’

Before Its News – Pakistan’s earthquake island created by methane gas in Arabian Sea ‘will not last’ REALLY ?

[snip]  ” . . .  Professor Shamim Ahmed Shaikh, chairman of the department of geology at Karachi University, said the island, which has not been named, would disperse within a couple of months.

He said it happens along the Makran coast because of the complex relationship between tectonic plates in the area. Pakistan sits close to the junction of three plates — the Indian, Arabian and Eurasian.

“About a year back an island of almost similar size had surfaced at the similar distance from the coast in the Makran region. This would disperse in a week to a couple of months,” Shaikh told AFP.

Mr Gibson said the temporary island was very different from the permanent uplift seen during major “subduction zone” earthquakes, where plate collisions force the Earth’s crust suddenly and sometimes dramatically upwards.”

Someone is spreading disinformation about this new island forming event.  The disinformation pushers are attempting to create a narrative that the sea floor rise was a “mud volcano” .. no proof was provided of this “mud volcano”.. and now (thank goodness) pictures are turning up which contradict these bogus reports.

The pictures of the new island fly in the face of the ‘mud volcano’ lie. “ . . . (more)

UPDATE  May 30

China drops the Gwadar hot potato

[snip]. . . . According to APP, Mukhtar said Pakistan appreciated that the Chinese government agrees to run the port, but would be more grateful “if a naval base is constructed at the site of Gwadar for Pakistan.” [1]
His remarks set off alarm bells around the world, as pundits dusted off the “string of pearls” analogy describing China’s alleged efforts to create a network of military-ready ports, and raised the specter of the Chinese dragon bathing his vermilion claws in the milk-warm waters of the Indian Ocean. . . .
