Just few days after Asia's tsunami catastrophe, conspiracy theorists are out in force, accusing governments of a cover-up, blaming the military for testing top-secret eco-weapons or comic allegations like the aliens trying to correct the Earth's "wobbly" rotation. On Internet chatrooms around the world questions are being asked, about who or what caused the earthquake off Sumatra on Dec 26, and why governments were so slow to act in the minutes and hours before tsunamis slammed into their shores, killing almost 150,000.

After every globally shocking event from the bombing of Pearl Harbor to the assassination of John F Kennedy, the death of Princess Diana and the Sept 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in the United States lot of conspiracy theorists float around for years to come. But all of these theories just remained as theories.

The suggestions and questions being asked are::

Aliens caused the earthquake to try and correct the "wobbly rotation of the Earth." Just laugh HaHaHa !!!!

Why is the U.S. sending a warship? Why is a senior commander who was in Iraq going there? Might be some reason. But that does mean US had planned some undersea explosions. The allgegations that an eco-weapons which can trigger earthquakes and volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves were being tested, is totally baseless.

Is it a coincidence that this earthquake happened exactly a year after earthquake in Bam, Iran which killed 30,000 on Dec 26 last year. Yes there are so many coincidences in the World !!!!

Why did India refuse the aid from International aid agencies. Because India can cope-up with the disaster itself.

Now Let us see the theory put-up by the Arabs

An Egyptian weekly magazine, Al-Osboa has reported on Jan 06, 2005 that the earthquake that struck the Indian Ocean on December 26, triggering a series of huge waves called tsunami, "was possibly" caused by an Indian nuclear experiment in which "Israeli and American nuclear experts participated". According to Al-Osboa, India, in its heated nuclear race with Pakistan, has lately received sophisticated nuclear know-how from the United States and Israel, both of which "showed readiness to cooperate with India in experiments to exterminate humankind."

Oh!!! What a statement. Is it India, or is it the Islamic Terrorists who are trying to exterminate non-muslim humankind ?

World will have to face a new conspiracy Theory now, the last talked about was the 9/11 Conspiracy Theory. Reportedly, the UN is now attempting to Dispel conspiracy Theory of Nuclear Experiment Causing Tsunami.

If the part of the theory which mentions about "exterminate humankind" can be changed to "exterminate Terrorist Islamic humankind" then the theory can be put to pratice and it will be a first step towards establishing peace in the World.
