Why Did It Take So Long to Install a Tsunami-Warning System in the Indian Ocean?

After the massive tsunami of 2004 killed so many people, and rendered millions homeless, it took two years for the first DART (Deep-ocean Assessment and Reporting of Tsunamis) buoy to be installed in the Indian Ocean.

Why do you think it took so long for the first DART buoy to be installed after the 2004 tsunami caused widespread damage along the Indian-Ocean coastline?

If a similar tsunami-caused disaster had threatened the coastlines of a major world power, do you think the protection system would have been more quickly installed? Explain your answer.
