New Moore is No More

Believe it or not India and Bangladesh have been fighting over a lousy piece of rock (3 by 3,5 km in size) situated in the Bay of Bengal for nearly 30 years. There were no people living on this tiny island, no structures of any kind, no valuable natural resources, just a remote piece of rock in the ocean, called New Moore Island.

Finally God got fed up with the utterly pointless bickering and sunk this pitiful little island into the ocean.

I think oceanographer Sugata Hazra summed it all up pretty nice:
"What these two countries could not achieve from years of talking, has been resolved by global warming".

Oh the stupidity of the world.
