It actually looks like the ocean level went up in those after pictures.

Prayers for these people. Note the size of the area in the first picture that shows where these smaller detailed photos were taken. And this is still just one small part of the whole thing.

Understatement of the year.

I am just stunned at how much some of the towns were obliterated by the earthquake and subsequent tsunami waves from these pictures.

Yes it is. As are the satellite pics I have from from the USGS of the World Trade Center still smoking. I'd post them but I do not know how, and they are only on my home PC.

You should've posted some kind of disclaimer along with that graphic of a picture. Those are human beings, not beach toys.

Intelligence report: Bin Laden sought Indonesian base (Aceh) Counterterrorism experts say he also checked out Yemen

http://edition.cnn.com/2002/WORLD/asiapcf/southeast/07/09/indo.binladen

From Maria Ressa
CNN Correspondent

MANILA, Philippines (CNN) --Intelligence officials tell CNN that Osama bin Laden wanted to move the base of operations for his al Qaeda terrorist network from Afghanistan to Southeast Asia in 2000.

The plan, according to these officials' intelligence report, was to move the base to Aceh in Indonesia, where members of the Free Aceh movement (or GAM) were working with al Qaeda.

Aceh is a remote Muslim province in which rebels have fought for a separate Islamic state for decades. Bin Laden's No. 2, Egyptian Ayman Al-Zawahiri visited Aceh with al Qaeda's former military chief, Mohammed Atef, in June 2000.

"Both of them were impressed by the lack of security, the support and extent of Muslim population," reads the intelligence report made available to CNN. "This visit was part of a wider strategy of shifting the base of Osama bin Laden's terrorist operations from the subcontinent to Southeast Asia."

http://jmm.aaa.net.au/articles/10294.htm

On 3 January 2002 the Jakarta Post reported, "The Aceh or Nanggroe Aceh Darusallam administration has officially put the special autonomy law and syariah (Islamic law) into effect." The article went on to quote Teungku Sofyan Hamzah, an imam at the grand Baiturrahman Mosque. "Asked about feelings of anxiety by some non-Muslims in Aceh following the implementation of the Islamic law, he (Hamzah) said that the minority should not worry. 'The administration will use national law for them.'"

Well - an article appeared in the Jakarta Post on 28 September 2002, detailing how under shari'a law, caning or imprisonment would be the punishment for those who "propagated beliefs other than Islam to Muslims in the province."

"It actually looks like the ocean level went up in those after pictures."

I completely agree but I think it's more an issue of the land subsiding then the ocean rising. I've been thinking about this the last few days. There's been numerous reports from Indonesia of some islands off the coast literally "disappearing". Maybe they're not talking about the buildings, but the actual islands. The Banda Aceh area is to the east of the subduction zone, on the 'up' side of the fault. If there was 30m of upward thrust at the fault then I think it's reasonable to presume there might have been some downward movement further in. It would be as if the crust was tilted, or tipped upward at the faultline causing a downward tilt further in. In that case the land would subside or even "disappear".

Ok Thanks, I wasn't aware. I do appreciate the fact that our fellow freepers post this kinds of pics on, I have been having a hard time finding pics like these in the regular news media.
God bless the victims and their families.

Thanks for those before and after. It helps in understanding the devastation. There is a lot less land, especially in the first pair.

Looks like a nuke hit the place. (the digiglobe pics) Go to the site and look at them full size. (I put them in photoshop and increased the brightness, it really helps)
I don't think there will be any terrorists in Banda Aceh chopping up Buddists and Christians there for a while. Banda Aceh Looks like it was the hardest hit of all places.
