Did the USA cause the Asian Tsunami to flood out Osama bin Laden?|
The western end of Indonesia was one possible area that bin Laden might have been hiding. Although most experts agreed that he wasn't likely to be there, they also said it would be nearly impossible to find him if he were because of the population density. Bin Laden has eluded the USA for more than three years since 9/11, so in truth he could be anywhere.
Large tsunamis aren't caused by nuclear blasts, although small ones can be. Large tsunamis are caused by earthquakes, and an underground nuclear blast can trigger an earthquake. This is a fact learned from America's nuclear testing days, when underground tests would trigger temblors sometimes days after their detonation. It's sort of like a pebble starting a rock slide or a sneeze that causes a snowslide. If the conditions are right, the effect can be astounding.
The earthquakes caused by the testing of the 50's and 60's were usually small earthquakes, but they were often significant for the fault lines where they were triggered. For example, a 3.0 earthquake isn't much, but if it occurs along a shallow fault line where earthquakes almost never happen then it's a something to notice. The fault line where the Andaman earthquake occurred joined two major tectonic plates of earth. As far as we know, no one has ever detonated an underground nuclear device on a major fault line that runs deep into the earth. It's not difficult to guess that even desktop computers could accurately predict the effects, provided that the right data was available. Well, maybe it's a stretch to think that just one desktop computer could be programmed to accurately predict a blast, its earthquake, and the size and direction of the resulting tsunami, but the USA isn't limited to using desktop computers.
My country, the USA, has many good people in its history, but its bad guys aren't found only just outside of government. USA history also includes bad guys in government like Benedict Arnold, Aaron Burr, Aldrich Ames, Joseph P. McCarthy, and R. Philip Hanssen. Could a group of Americans have taken it upon themselves to kill Osama bin Laden by detonating an under water nuclear bomb and causing the Andaman earthquake and its tsunami? Like the chance that Osama bin Laden was hiding in Banda Aceh, it may not be likely, but it is possible that we got him... and a lot of other people too.
