Now this got my blood boiling.

Various fundamentalist media outlets in the middle east (Egypt for one example) is saying that the U.S. caused the tsunami by testing nuclear weapons.

The worrying thing is, millions of people in some Middle Eastern countries hear these things and just take them as fact.

Before this thread turns into another Middle Eastern hate thread.....

I had also heard that nuclear testing had damaged the tectonic plates. No mention of which countrys testing caused the damage but it is feasible. The Earth is one planet. The plates do rub against each other. It is possible that nuclear testing caused the plates to move.

You are correct, it is possible. But how do ya prove it and how can another country come out and say something like that. I would like to see the article if anyone has it

At the same time, if we really make our presence known as far as the relief effort, this could boost our image with the Muslim world...if those ME gov'ts don't ruin it first. Do you have an article on this?

OK.

Our sensitivity has gotten out of hand.

Of all the countries that have tested nuclear weapons, I guess our tests in the Nevada desert was on their mind.

USA has tested in this region before (Maralinga) just not recently. (to my knowledge.)

There are many countries that have tested in this region. Unfortunately, this region of the world has a long history of being the rubbish dump for the West.

i don't care who says it. if some european, asian, african, s. american, australian or even american media said this i'd be equally outraged. the fact that its coming from the middle east has little to do with my anger.
