Isnt it possible that is was NOT an earthquake....
They coulda'v easily made sum bombs explode deep under water and create and earthquake effect and eventually these tsunamis....
Enzo Boschi, the head of Italy's National Geophysics Institute, likened the quake's power to detonating a million atomic bombs the size of those dropped on Japan during World War II, and said the shaking was so powerful it even disturbed the Earth's rotation.
"The Russians don't cancel," Phuket taxi driver Apichart observed dryly, recalling how he had ferried four of them to their beachside hotels on Wednesday. "They have so many problems where they come from, they don't care about tsunamis."
In the smoker's section of the departure lounge of Phuket's small airport, ashtrays overflowed with hundreds of cigarette butts as stressed-out tourists, each with a harrowing story to tell, waited in a cloud of smoke for their flight to board.
In the arrivals section, trolleys were piled high with orange stretchers, Red Cross parcels from Finland, bundles of blankets and rolls of white linen.
But it was business as usual in one surreal corner of the tourism industry: just before landing at Phuket, the pilot of Cunliffe's Thai Airways flight told his less than 30 passengers, "In Phuket, the weather is cloudy but otherwise fine."

PHUKET, Thailand - A Swedish toddler was reunited with his weeping father in a Thai hospital Wednesday, days after the 18-month-old was found sitting alone on a roadside in the aftermath of the tsunami disaster. The boy's mother is among some 5,000 people still missing in Thailand.
Hannes Bergstroem, his face scratched and pocked with mosquito bites and his hand bandaged, looked bemused as his father choked up with emotion. The father, also scratched and bruised, lay in a hospital bed, holding Hannes with ballons around them.
Hannes was found alone on a roadside near a Thai beach resort Sunday night and he was taken by helicopter to a hospital for treatment. The hospital staff posted his photo on the Internet Monday in an effort to locate his family.
His uncle, who spotted the photo, claimed the boy Tuesday and set up the reunion with the father, Marko Karkkainen, at a hospital on the southern Thai island of Phuket where both father and son were receiving treatment.
