Washington was aware that a deadly Tidal Wave was building up in the Indian
Ocean
Michel Chossudovsky | December 29, 2004 >>http://globalresearch.ca/articles/CHO412C.htmlThe US Military and the State Department were given advanced warning.
America's Navy base on the island of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean was
notified.
Why were fishermen in India, Sri Lanka and Thailand not provided with the
same warnings as the US Navy and the US State Department?
Why did the US State Department remain mum on the existence of an impending
catastrophe?
With a modern communications system, why did the information not get out? By
email, telephone, fax, satellite TV... ?

This disaster is quite horrible by its very nature and magnitude. I read the
following story and I'm very sure that I do not agree with its tone. What is
the intent of this spew of words? Trying to relate blame or running a
political spin on this whole circumstance is abhorrent behavior. Publishing
it is even worse. While there may have been some underlying current for
change, my personal opinion is that the power of the pen be used responsibly
and published by reasonably intelligent guidelines. There is a time and a
place for such an inflammatory discourse and this most certainly is not it.

Political conspiracy theory perhaps, but Bush bashing? I don't remember 
seeing him mentioned in the article.

Okay, Tom...I'll bite.  When would be the time and what would be the place?

Oh, John...you know perfectly well that the King and the Country are 
one...a criticism of anything done in or by the US that cannot be ascribed 
to traitorous Liberals is surely a criticism aimed at our Fearless Leader.

John, I agree with you, mostly.  I think we should treat the list as a
topic-specific public forum and not a private soapbox or personal
email list among intimates.  Better to stick with coffee-related
posts. Problem is that one person's "way too OT" is another's
"slightly astray from highly relevant."   Personally, I object to
cutesy, jokey, personal chatter in the midst of otherwise "relevant"
(to me) coffee topics.  But that's just me.  On the other hand, IMO,
Xerxes Lee's equally OT post seemed somehow to belong (though I could
have done without the Bible and prayers references).  So my preference
would be not to single out any one "offender" (such as Steven, whose
post, IMO, complements the general Tsunami posts), but to consider all
of the broad and diverse participants on the list and respect the
sentiments of as many people as we can manage.

Funny...I come here to read about coffee and talk to intelligent people, 
Pete...even when they talk about things I'm not directly interested in. 
The really funny thing is that I bet that if all the folks who enjoy the 
general fellowship of this list - even when it ventures off topic - were to 
leave, there would be a lot less posted about coffee, too.  A lot less.

As far as conspiracies goes its not a well thought out one. First, =
Tsunamis
are caused by earthquakes. I have yet to see any evidence of predicting =
or
forecasting earthquakes with any accuracy. Second, Tsunamis travel very =
fast
upwards of 500 miles an hour. You have very little time to prepare and
evacuate. If the Indian Ocean had had a working tsunami alert system, =
such
as Japan has, and they had an International emergency alert system in =
place
with all contacts up to date, which they don't, Sumatra would have still
been lost due to proximity of the epicenter. They are now looking at
installing a system and try to get the international coordination =
required
to minimize future problems. You can not eliminate earthquakes due to =
the
fault lines and volcanoes you can only hope to react in the scarce =
minutes
available to minimize damages.
