The U.S. and New Zealand collaborated on a top-secret plan to develop a 'tsunami bomb' capable of devastating coastal cities, it has emerged.

Details of the secretive operation, code-named Project Seal, were discovered in military files buried in New Zealand's national archives by author and film-maker Ray Waru.

Why worry about nukes and other things when Asian countries can start wiping out entire cities with conventional explosives.....so said the experts in New Zealand......

And if bjp's projections of global resource wars occurs, the folks living 2 feet above sea levels have lots of other things to worry about. Just like the Al Queda load up a truck with five tons of explosives to blow down entire blocks.....or try it with the WTC 20 years ago........just load up a ship with five million pounds of high explosives and take out a city of a million or more quickly.....

Any sea rise will be a 'bonus' to the effort.
