U.S. Conducts Secret “Tsunami Bomb” Test Designed to Destroy Coastal Cities

U.S. attempted to develop a ‘tsunami bomb’ in 1945 to use in war

No wonder so much of the world thinks the United States is insane.

According to the UK Telegraph:

The United States and New Zealand conducted secret tests of a “tsunami bomb” designed to destroy coastal cities by using underwater blasts to trigger massive tidal waves.

The tests were carried out in waters around New Caledonia and Auckland during the Second World War and 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.

The top secret operation, code-named “Project Seal”, tested the doomsday device as a possible rival to the nuclear bomb. About 3,700 bombs were exploded during the tests, first in New Caledonia and later at Whangaparaoa Peninsula, near Auckland.

Ray Waru, who examined military files, buried in the national archives said:

“Presumably if the atomic bomb had not worked as well as it did, we might have been tsunami-ing people. 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.”

Leave it to the good ole, US of A to try and develop a bomb to wash your enemies out to sea.

The tests were carried out in 1945.

    If we can’t nuke them, well then by golly we can drown them. It’s no wonder the rest of the world sees us as a war-mongering bully.

  2. DMason says:

    The USA seems to have an endless font of ideas and schemes designed to harm and kill people. I have to wonder if our standing in the world might be a tad better if we used our enormous resources to aid and help nations and not wash them out to sea?

  3. Rachel says:

    Who were we planning to drown? Japan? I thought dropping two Atomic bombs on Japan put an end to WWII and taught the rest of the world what country had the most lethal military force.

    I always think how much more good will we could engender if we built schools, hospitals and water systems in hostile nations. Cheaper too. But co-existence with others is something suspect to the American character. We are hell-bent to kill as many people as possible.

  5. The Real Adam says:

    ChiTOM – Schools and hospitals are for sissies.

    The American psyche is wired for causing the optimum injury and death as possible. This is what we refer to as National Security.

  6. Arizona Leatherneck says:

    If memory serves, the US military was trying to develop a bomb that would kill the people but leave the infrastructure of the enemy country intact.

    So much better (and cheaper) for an American occupation. After we invaded Iraq, the oil industry was basically destroyed necessitating American rebuilding.

    Our military sickness goes back a long, long way.

    How sad it is that I have to live in the country whose main contribution to the world is, Multiple ways to destroy it……

  8. Randy Arroyo says:

    You wonder what other weapons of mass destruction the US has tried to develop?

  9. Jim says:

    It’s official. The US is nuts.

  10. Andy says:

    Really!? We’ve got to go back more than half a century to find reasons to bash the USA? Back when racial minorities were second class citizens, women were basically the property of their husband or their father, and the gays… well, the gays weren’t even raising their heads for fear of having them cut off and we’re going to focus on stupid [and set aside] war plans. Geez…
