Wacky Reasons for Tsunamis

Here are some of the top wacko thoughts (in no particular order) about why this tsunami was especially huge:

- Global warming (of course) caused by America's love affair with SUVs
- Allah did it because he hates the USA (even though Muslims were targeted)
- Allah did it because he hates the bad Muslims living in SE Asia
- Cutting into the Earth's crust to build highways has weakened it
- The "shock and awe" campaign in Iraq caused the Earth's crust to react
- Nuclear testing by the USA and Israel caused the Earth's crust to react

No mention from the wackos about how tsunamis have always been around since the dawn of time. Of course, saying that would mean that they aren't wacky.

I could wax poetic about how messed up this thinking is...but everyone already knows.

I've just been collecting "reasons" from news sources. I just post the wacky ones as I hear them.
