    its not about buying a "house by the beach".
    its not about vacation property.

    although indonesia being wholly an island nation has its own particularly unique set of problems to be able to get warning of tsunami, this needs to be seen as a global problem.

    indonesia's tsunami problem, and other countries' sea rising and shoreline erosion problems, although not related, do have similarity as to real world decisions about where we need to even abandon habitation due to sheer costs and scope of work that is required to make it safer.

    Java, Maldives, Louisiana Bayou, New Jersey shore, Thames River, Manhattan, Florida.
    zones that can be considered safe for human habitation are being re-evaluated.
    rise in insurance costs first. then comes local tax increases to try to deal with the problem. then abandonment of these zones when its realized that the costs of continued habitation in these areas cannot be sustained.

    Mount Karakatoa volcano was NOT responsible for this tsunami. It was created by the explosion of an underwater bomb by human beings. Please read this declassified document from the time of WW2 where the US discuss these matters, and whether they can start earthquakes with an explosion.

    I am really hoping you are kidding, but afraid that you are not. Both the 2004 event and this latest one by the Anak Krakatau (literally Son of Krakatau) are both tracked by multiple seismic stations to their source. The satellite photos of the volcano show a huge collapse in the last few days, though the actual event that caused the tsunami is still under investigation (underwater landside caused by an eruption is the frontrunner at the moment), we know its source is the infamous island which was the source of the infamous 1883 event. So for your ludicrous theory to be correct, agents of the US or whatever government you think did this, needed to go to Krakatau, dig a huge hole, put a nuclear weapon in it (it appears you theory requires a nuclear weapon) and then detonate it, all without being caught and all without nuclear fallout being detected by anyone. Do you really think that's what happened?

    This video is a bit mad going on about number magic and so forth but he starts off hitting the point:

    Wow, the numerolgy guy is your goto on this? He's not hitting any points at all. And you don't seem to be answering the question.

    Do you really believe one of the nuclear powers secretly dug a large hole on Krakatua and buried a nuclear device there and then set it off on Saturday to cause a tsunami?

    Also his theory on why they did it is crazed, since Indonesia is the 4th most populous country in the world, the 430+ killed by the storm have already been replaced several times over an its only Wednesday, thats not really cost effective population control to spend millions to "secretly" kill less then 500 people. Drop smallpox. ebola, or measles in Indonesia and we have a real event and that lots cheaper then a 1000 feet deep pit, near one of the most active volcanoes in the world and setting off a multi-million dollar nuclear weapon.

    Don't know where to start....

    I lived in Indonesia just short of a decade, will be going back, lived on the slopes of a sleeping volcano, Tangkuban Perahu to be exactly, felt tremors each and every day, not a lot people do but I am really sensitive to tremors.
    75% of Anak Krakatoa sank into the Java sea, this would take a nuclear device much bigger than the Russian Tsar Bomb, 150-170 million cubic meters have been displaced, not even the largest nuke could possibly be displacing this much earth.
    It has been predicted years ago this would happen.
