US, New Zealand Tested 'Tsunami Bomb'
The United States, and New Zealand engaged in secret tests of "tsunami bombs" that were designed to destroy coastal cities.

According to Ray Waru, an author and film-maker, the United States and New Zealand had a top secret program called "Project Seal." The project was launched in June 1944 after a US naval officer, E A Gibson, noticed that blasting operations to clear coral reefs around Pacific islands sometimes produced a large wave, raising the possibility of creating a "tsunami bomb."
About 3,700 bombs were exploded during the tests, first in New Caledonia and later at Whangaparaoa Peninsula, near Auckland. The tests showed that the weapon was feasible and a series of 10 large offshore blasts could potentially create a 33-foot tsunami capable of inundating a small city.
Mr. Waru says the project produced positive results, but was shelved in 1945. Experts concluded that single explosions were not powerful enough and a successful tsunami bomb would require about 2 million kilograms of explosive arrayed in a line about five miles from shore.
"It was absolutely astonishing. 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."
"If you put it in a James Bond movie it would be viewed as fantasy but it was a real thing," he said.
"I only came across it because they were still vetting the report, so there it was sitting on somebody's desk [in the archives]."
One must question whether or not this program was really shelved or not. As some have noticed, some successful programs, or controversial ones are buried even further in the black-hole of secrecy, or given a new name. But, has a weapon like this ever been used?
Some think so. In fact, there is a 9,000 word report by a man by the name of Jim Stone. Although, his explanation says Nukes were used, but summarily, it is the same idea.
Don't worry though, wired.com has already put out a 'debunking' story of how crazy this lunatic fringe is. After all, how dare anyone suspect Israel of committing sabotage, or a terrorist attack?
