Before and After: Tsunami Satillite Photos

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
The magnitude of the disaster is horrifying. Monstrous. Unbearable.

I discovered this link, and it brought it home for me. There are no dead bodies to be seen...but the distruction is enormous. Take the time to look through it, and see just how powerful Mother Nature really is. Start at the beginning.

And then say another prayer for all those lost and affected by this overwhelming event.

Thanks for posting the link, we've been running those pictures on the news and it really helps you realize EXACTLY what has been affected.

And of course it is our fault this horrible disaster happened! I was so angry when I heard that last night, and the reason it happened on our holy day was because of the sexual promiscuity of our nation. This disaster is bad enough in its own making, shame on those who are trying to make it worse!

Those pictures are daunting- and haunting and so very sad. I heard a story last night about a priest who saved 24 orphans in a boat. He woke up with a feeling something dreadful was going to happen, hustled all the kids out of the orphanage and took them to safety. Minutes after they were on higher ground the waves came.

Good Lord, where did you hear THAT? How awful!

I hadn't heard that, MA. I think what I'd say in response is that it didn't happen here. Sigh.

The one I've heard though - and it seems to be getting some play - is that India detonated an undersea Nuclear bomb, with our help, and that set everything off.

I've thought about that since I've heard it, and it not just doesn't make any sense, it really doesn't make any sense. To be able to create a rift under the sea that is of similar width/depth, it would take far more than a nuclear bomb. The water pressure alone would not allow the detonation to do what they are saying it did.

Sigh.

Conspiracy theories are interesting sometimes. This time it's just sad.

A lot of people believe when anything bad happens it's because of the sexual promiscuity, lack of respect for life, materialism, etc of the developed countries. And I really don't know the secrets of life so I can't say yes or no, but it seems unlikely..

I found this, this might help what was said:

A Muslim cleric on Saudi TV insists he knows what caused the deadly tsunami in South Asia — Christians. Saudi Cleric Muhammed Al-Manajjid says, "[Christmas and other Christian holidays] are accompanied by forbidden things, by immorality, abomination, adultery, alcohol, drunken dancing ... and revelry. ... [So] At the height of immorality, Allah took vengeance on these criminals."

He did not explain why the vengeance was taken on largely non-Christian nations.


Hope this clears the way...

Oh there are always weirdos saying such things. After 9/11 Falwell
said it was due to the immorality, lesbians, gays etc etc etc in NYC.
Just ignore it. All groups, religions have their share of sickos.

The satellite photos have been shown on television here, and AOL Germany also has a feature. What incredible devastation. We had donated money last week, but those photos sent me back to the bank today- it will take years, and billions, to rebuild.
An Indonesian man was picked up by a Japanese ship after clinging to a palm tree for eight days. He survived on coconuts.
I'm very glad that the American and Australian military are playing such a high-profile role in Aceh province and Sri Lanka right now - perhaps it'll make people less susceptible to the hate-filled spewings of some fanatic clerics.

I think the regular contributions are key. Not just one time, cause this will be ongoing for so long. I am going to do the same thing and give to Doctors without Borders today. I have given to Red Cross and UNICEF earlier.

Doctors Without Borders announced yesterday that any further donations probably wouldn't be used in South Asia, but in other trouble spots, which shouldn't be neglected. At least that's what was in our newspaper this morning.

That is good. I remember after 9/11 the same thing happened, all these local groups lost donations.

I heard that the Swedes had to stop releasing the names of those still missing because theives were taking the opportunity to burglarize their uninhabited homes. Some people are just so inhuman.

Hi, Deb. There's no other link that I know of, and I just checked the link and it seems to be working for me.

I don't know what to tell you. Is anyone else having issues accessing the site?

Well, factor in time difference, it was the 26th of December for the region when the tsunami occurred.

I just hope I don't actually have to face someone who spouts the same rubbish because I would like to know when those countries became part of Australia or USA for that matter.

OHhh...but he's kinda right...we're footing a major portion of the bill, and are continiously expected to foot more and more daily.

Personally I would rather see these funds put towards cleaning up the mess in Iraq.

PS I mean absolutely no disrespect to those whose lives were affected, or worse yet, taken by this tragic act of nature.

I thought it linked but I guess not, here it is again http://www.masternewmedia.org/2005/0...e_pictures.htm
Sorry!

For some reason the original link is working for me tonight. Wow. I am simply speechless.

It has been calculated that the energy released on Sunday was 23,000 times that of the explosion of the nuclear bomb at Hiroshima (Japan). A large portion of the earth’s crust—1,000 km (620 miles) in length by 100 km (62 miles) in width running from Western Sumatra to Myanmar—moved.--Gianluca Valensise

After seeing those pics, I can understand the above quote from the Newsweek article by Eric Pape ("Earthquake’s Size, Damage Called Biblical") posted on Dec. 27.
