I am grateful that the biggest thing we have to worry about is Bamacare.......

Quote:Japanese officials have admitted for the first time that thousands of people evacuated from areas near the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant may never be able to return home.

A report by members of the governing Liberal Democratic party [LDP] and its junior coalition partner urges the government to abandon its promise to all 160,000 evacuees that their irradiated homes will be fit to live in again.

The plan instead calls for financial support for displaced residents to move to new homes elsewhere, and for more state funding for the storage of huge quantities of radioactive waste being removed from the 12-mile evacuation zone around the plant.

The parties' admission that some areas closest to the wrecked facility will remain too contaminated for people to make a permanent return is a blow to official assurances that radiation can be brought down to safe levels.

It took 3 years for them to admit that they need help so IMO its not a stretch to think they lied to save face

It may take hundreds of years to find out just how much damage was done by their refusal to ask for assistance.

I think that their cultural pride is to blame for the refusal to ask for help.

yup.gif Oh yeah. They are good people, just a totally different culture. You can't internalize what went down here. It should have never been equated to saving face.
