US/New Zealand & the Tsunami Bomb

Unusual news. The kind that makes one go "what the hell"!!!
This news story, really got me thinking or perhaps rethinking  Fukushima, Haiti and other coastal disasters.

Tsunami devastated ships and debris are seen in Namie Town which is inside the exclusion zone of a 20km radius around the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, in Fukushima
During its search for the 'ultimate weapon' to end World War II, the United States apparently teamed up with New Zealand to test a 'tsunami bomb,' which could be used to destroy the enemy's coastal cities.

A total of 3,700 bombs were detonated underwater in these tests, and ultimately showed that exploding a line of 10 bombs (totaling about two million kilograms of explosive), roughly eight kilometres from shore, could generate a 10-meter-high wave when it reached land. For comparison, the tallest wave peaks from the tsunami that devastated Japan's west coast in 2011 were recorded at just over nine meters.

In other words, almost 70 years ago the US and New Zealand conspired to create major tsunami’s  & earthquakes using under water bombs. And did, indeed, succeed in creating tsunami waves taller then the ones that devastated Japan in 2011, 70 years ago.

“It was absolutely astonishing,” said Waru. “First that anyone would come up with the idea of developing a weapon of mass destruction based on a tsunami — and also that New Zealand seems to have successfully developed it to the degree that it might have worked.”

Not might have worked, the bombs did work. Paying attention to the downplaying language that contradicts the results of the Tsunami bomb creating waves bigger then at Fukushima.

“Given that most of the world's major cities are coastal, it would have been a very effective weapon”

Why would the war machine forfeit an effective and easily deniable weapon?
I mean tsunamis are something that just happen... Right?

I'm quite happy that they shelved this weapon, since governments may have been far more willing to use it.

Totally bogus conclusion. How does the author of this piece know this weapon was shelved?
Answer: He does not.

The documents, he claims, indicate the United States got the idea for such a destructive device after a naval officer noticed how the blasting to clear coral reefs around Pacific Islands formed larger waves.

The experiments began in 1944 in waters off New Caledonia, an archipelago near Australia, and were later moved to waters close to Auckland, New Zealand.

Waru said the operation was killed the following year, although the Kiwis continued publishing reports about it into the 1950s.

Waru said the operation was killed? Was it? Clearly not because the article goes on to report that the “Kiwis continued publishing reports on it into the 1950's”
Therefore the operation was not killed.
New Zealand obviously continued working on it above board, likely with the US, for another ten to 15 years. It is hard to believe that the US would drop such an effective weapon with most of the world’s major cities being coastal.

US developed ‘tsunami bomb’ for use again Japan in WWII

The project was launched in 1944 after E.A. Gibson, a U.S. naval officer, came up with the idea while watching the waves that were created by underwater blasts used to clear reefs around islands in the Pacific. Tsunami waves have been observed as high as 1,700 feet, and are caused by sudden movement on the ocean floor, such landslides, large volcanic eruptions, or, in the case of the March 2011 disaster in Japan, earthquakes. Researchers believed it would take the detonation of around 2,200 tons of explosives five miles from shore to create a wave that would destroy a coastal community.

Maybe the worldwide coral reef collapses need to be revisited? 
  Collapse of Barrier Reef slab 'could trigger tsunami'
 Why yes it could!
Wondering if the corral reefs act as some type of barrier between the land and the water and when removed.. and some bombs set in place..... you have an earthquake/tsunami
If it could be done nearly 70 years ago? Why not even more effectively now?


  1. The 2004 devastation of Aceh comes to mind. This effectively terminated the separatist movement there which had persevered for decades.

    The much smaller contemporaneous tsunamis in Thailand and Sri Lanka may have imply been collateral damage.

    1. Hey atheo

      I have to admit I was gobsmacked to come across this story
      Sans the spin about the program ending which is of course speculative

      50- 60 years from now who knows what records will come to light, one's that will demonstrate that like MKUltra the tsunami bomb went on to bigger and better things

  2. Penny,

    why did Truman think he saved millions of American lives by dropping the Big Ones?

    This old tsunami stuff is a defensive system in the event of a US assault on a beach where a Jap nuke was waiting.

    Why do you think the degenerate scum in Pyongyang have nukes and missiles?

    The A-kit was in place and tested in 1945.

    And on NK visit..

    months ago..
    Brigadier General Neil Tolley was reported as saying U.S.. ... Korea a week after controversy broke over comments he made on North Korea. ... Such cross-border operations into North Korea would be in violation of the 1953

    Bill Richardson leading the delegation? And Google?
    (That is of Los Alamos fiasco fame)

    In the mid-'90s, Richardson freed a U.S. helicopter pilot downed over North Korea, a pair of Americans who inadvertently crossed into Iraq, an American jailed in Bangladesh, and three aid workers held hostage in Sudan, among others. He was dispatched to butter up Serbia's Slobodan Milosevic, Haiti's military dictators, and Burma's tyrants. According to Richardson's Wednesday testimony, the FBI has turned up no evidence of espionage involving the hard drives. That is good news for the United States, but perhaps bad news for Richardson, since the alternative to espionage is something much more humiliating: incompetence. The huge lag between the drives' disappearance and Richardson's hearing about it, the shoddy record-keeping in the security vault, the rediscovery of the drives behind a copying machine, Richardson's persistent ignorance about what was going on at Los Alamos—all this make the secretary look like a sap.

    Missiles and China...(2003)
    A newly released document from the U.S. State Department reveals that the most successful Chinese espionage operation in recent history occurred during the Clinton administration. The document accuses Hughes Space and Communications Company of violating U.S. national security 123 times by knowingly sending detailed missile and space technology directly to the Chinese army. President Clinton, who transferred the power to regulate sensitive satellites to Commerce, under Commerce Secretary Ron Brown, ultimately overruled Christopher.

    Related to all these boeing 787 issues...

  6. Coral reefs do seem to act as a buffer to the effect of tsunamis on the coastal environs.

    Here is just one paper confirming this:

    This being so, then destruction of such a buffer could make the coastal areas far more vunerable for severe devastation in the event of a tsunami, or perhaps even a tidal or storm surge.

    As a weapon this could be very useful.

    1. "As a weapon this could be very useful."... Oh, really!

      Useful? Like in useful idiot or 'useful' devastation? Devastation and destruction can never be useful, to call it useful betrays a mental state.

      May I add, no puns intended, a very useful New Year to you and yours Penny... and to you too Magdelena.

    2. Egowige, I am not talking what I personally would do - duh. I was saying to the war minded individual psycho this would appeal to them as a very useful weapon indeed - got it?

      I was using the 'mental' state of putting myself in another's shoes ... this time the warmonger. To them it's grand - just like to some geoengineers the idea of dispersing iron filings into the ocean is a grand idea, or blanketing the sky with aluminum is also a grand idea.

      Neither of which when I were my own shoes I agree with.

      Hope that helps.

    3. Hey Egoigwe and Magdalena...

      The limitations of typing responses without the benefit of facial responses and other expressive gesturing at play

      Knowing Magdalena as I do, I knew that was not what had been intended.

      Egoigwe, does not know Magdalena and misunderstood the response.

      We are all on the same page wrt devastation being cruel and inhumane. And something general humanity does not benefit from.
      However the psychopath/military/ banker crowd benefits greatly. Enriching themselves at the expense of all the rest.


    4. Oh okay. I do beg your pardon then Magelena. Absent facial responses (apologies to Penny) you may want to wink, wink or :)

      But I do apologize for reading you from the wrong side of town. Having seen devastation up front and personal, I hope you can understand my being touchy about its 'usefulness' east side or west side... and really, do have a splendid year.

    5. Egoigwe:
      apologies to me are not necessary
      When I saw the exchange, I realized and remembered that this was personal for you.
      Magdalena will appreciate that, I am sure.
      (I have known her for years)

      As always I do appreciate your commentary :)
      And hope you will always think of myself and other commenters here as friends, albeit far away cyber friends
      But nonetheless like minded cyber friends

      (Exception being the useless troll that persists. That individual is friend to no one. Only being filled with hatred. Only capable of snide comments)

    6. this has been known since the 2004 tsunami when it was found developers had removed mangroves that also protect shorelines

      Mangroves Shielded Communities Against Tsunami
      Oct. 28, 2005 — A new study released today in the journal Science shows that areas buffered by coastal forests, like mangroves, were strikingly less damaged by the 2004 tsunami than areas without tree vegetation. This is believed to be the first peer-reviewed empirical and field-based study to document a clear link between coastal vegetation and protection from the tsunami. The study was undertaken by a large research team, comprising ecologists, a botanist, geographers, a forester, and a tsunami wave engineer, from seven nations.


    7. Hey brian

      doesn't it seem as if everything really does have a reason for being where it is?

      the coral reefs
      the shoreline growths

      better to build grotesque hotels and casinos though...
      OH and nuclear power stations
      more profits to be made
      rather then work within the natural constraints of the environment
      ie smaller scattered structures and no nuclear power plants -period

    8. Egoigwe, no apology needed, I will include winkies! :)

      Glad that is cleared up. It is horrid what some humans think of doing to other humans, truly evil.

    9. Magdelena and Penny,

      Such great folks! Thanks for understanding... much appreciated.

    Russain plane breakup (owned by Lebedev)

    Lebedev has been allowed to acquire great wealth in Russia despite his oft-critical statements of the country's leadership. Novaya Gazeta, the newspaper he co-owns with former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, is Russia's leading opposition newspaper. He once proposed outfitting its journalists with guns, following the latest in a line of high-profile killings of journalists at the paper.

    USSIAN billionaire Alexander Lebedev was charged on Wednesday with hooliganism and battery over a televised punch-up and faces up to five years in jail in what he says is revenge for criticising President Vladimir Putin.

    The 52-year-old backer of British newspapers The Independent and London's Evening Standard , whose net worth was put at $1.1bn by Forbes magazine in March, was also ordered by federal criminal investigators not to leave the country.

    Lebedev, who owns a bank and a campaigning Russian newspaper, is rare among the so-called oligarchs in speaking out against the Kremlin and says he is a victim of a crackdown on dissent since Putin returned to the presidency in May.

    "I know the position of the president," Lebedev, a softly-spoken former KGB spy, told Reuters in an interview on Tuesday in which he denied funding the opposition and said he had upset the Kremlin by campaigning against corruption.

    "He thinks it is true that I have been funding (the opposition), so I was violating rule No. 1 - if you have money you should not interfere (in politics)."

      I appreciate all the time you take to leave the links :)

  8. Have you seen this guy's work? I don't know much about him, to be honest today is my first visit to his blog. Was just looking it over with no opinion really, but though of you and this article when I saw this:

    hen reviewing the seismic data for the supposed 9.0, I knew there were instead 3 small simultaneous inland epicenters. This made me suspicious right from the start that the quake was artificially triggered and used as seismic cover for a tsunami bomb. But I needed a reason to believe an artificial quake could have been done. I suspected that either Japan was testing nukes and Israeli intelligence was onto it and used the tests as the "start of clock" for their operation, or Israel managed to smuggle nukes into lava tubes and tunnels far underground to trigger earthquakes and contain the blasts. So I was hunting for tunnels and lava tubes near each of the three epicenters, and wanted to find them before writing this into this report. As it turns out, I did not need to. This military briefing with Secretary of Defense William Cohen, dated all the way back to 1997! shows that even then, Cohen knew about EM weaponry that could trigger quakes and set off volcanoes. I have ignored everything regarding this subject, I thought it was the realm of kooks.

    Wow.. just wow. Jury of course is still out, but I wouldn't put it past the psychopaths that are running things in this world.

    1. and of course their is Chikyu
