Video released by the Japanese Defence Ministry on Friday shows soldiers working right in front of the radiation leaking Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant the previous day, Thursday 31st March. Japan Maritime Self Defence Force in Nuclear Chemical Biological (NBC) suits can be seen working on the pier of the plant taking delivery of containers of fresh water to be used to cool the damaged reactors. The water containers are delivered aboard flat bed vessels supplied by the US Navy which are pushed by a JMSDF tug boat.

A conditioning of my youth, was included the knowledge, that I shall clean up after myself.

any mess i created was my responsibility to insure that the mess was fixed or cleaned
by me.

Viewed as almost a sin to pass it on to others.

Retaining that conditioning, i state the following:

1. Each and every single person that designed , approved and then profited from the building of this reactor,,
SHOULD BE ON SITE AND INVOLVED IN THE CLEAN UP, INCLUSIVE, ALL POLITICIANS ,
ALL SHARE HOLDERS
ALL CEO'S
ALL INCLUSIVE.

It to me is another SHAME, criminal offense,,, for those people to leave this mess to Soldiers
to clean up,,,

if left to me, my decision would be to arrest them all, wrap them in straight jackets and chain them to the reactors.

Nothing so sickening, then the profiteers relaxing in their purchased comfort
while a poor group of people, who had nothing to do with building this hazard
get sick and die.

We are all expected to bear certain responsibilities by virtue of a government by the people, for the people; however that government sadly no longer exists anywhere. Not on this dirt ball, no Sir.

The Mideast holdouts are being rounded up taken out of power as the IMF takes control of things.lemur.png All that drunk power and money makes me want to pop a chubby. vic.gif

All we get are bank puppets crying freedom , liberty, democracy , give up your freedom , liberty, democracy.

Corporations, politicians, bankers... do not abide by the same set of rules the rest of us are expected to adhere to. There is a worldwide dual class in the making, nope, it's here.

Global supply lines at risk as shipping lines shun Japan

A senior nuclear executive said on Friday evening that the United States Navy had moved nuclear-powered vessels like the Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier far from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant after officers became concerned that radiation from the plant could enter the ships' air ducts.

The worry is not that the radiation would pose a threat to the vessels' crews, but that even trace contamination of the ducts could create problems in the extremely sensitive equipment aboard nuclear-powered vessels that is intended to detect any hint of a radioactive leak from on-board systems, said the executive, who insisted on anonymity to protect business connections.

Water with high levels of radiation has been confirmed to have seeped into the sea from the No. 2 reactor at the troubled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, government officials said Saturday, raising wider fears of environmental contamination by the release of radioactivity.

The water has been leaking into the sea from a 20-centimeter crack detected at a pit in the reactor where power cables are stored, the government's nuclear safety agency said, adding that Tokyo Electric Power Co., known as TEPCO, is ready to encase the fracture in concrete.

The first detection of tainted water flowing out into the Pacific Ocean could force the government and the operator to limit further expansion of radioactive contamination, likely hampering efforts to restore the crippled cooling functions at the complex.

The government ''wants (the utility) to start the operation of covering the crack in concrete as soon as possible,'' said Hidehiko Nishiyama, a spokesman for the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency.

''We will also check whether there are cracks at other reactors as soon as possible,'' he added.

Tiger Tiger. burning bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye.
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

In what distant deeps or skies.
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand, dare seize the fire?

And what shoulder, & what art,
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat.
What dread hand? & what dread feet?

What the hammer? what the chain,
In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp.
Dare its deadly terrors clasp?

When the stars threw down their spears
And watered heaven with their tears:
Did he smile His work to see?
Did he who made the lamb make thee?

Tiger Tiger burning bright,
In the forests of the night:
What immortal hand or eye,
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

The Tiger

Serious bad situation, scares me to death. I have always had a respect for isotopes, stay away from it as much as possible. In my business hot sources are used and I have refused to be close to it whether encased or not. From my understanding a long lower exposure for longer periods of time is far more dangerous than 1-short term high dose. I dunno, have been in the oilfield service business a long time and some of these guys get that very unhealthy look and know several who have been diagnosed with various carcinomas. In this case ignorance may be bliss as I stay as far away as I can from any hot source...

Taco, it scares the hell out of most people. It's like electricity, you cant see it but it can kill you. We've stocked up on kelp just in case.
This certainly isn't the end case scenario everyone had mentally prepared for, hell they've hardly even made disaster movies this bad.

Alright
Not sure if this is related to the radiated Yellow Cloud that floated into Portland last week

but,,, about half of the servers that i try to go to are OUT!

I mean, i cannot get hardly any web pages to boot up.

and it is NOT my Laptop, because, i am using wifi and from a near source.

hmmmm,,,,
hotmail is down
carigslist is down
local webpage for Gun broker is DOWN

shït loads are down kiddies.

i ain't lieing
i may be dieing

ƒükking shït cloud wafted over here last friday

news is full of shït

wtf2.gif Rog' I thought that yellow cloud was a metaphor.. How ƒükkêd ! They are still acting as if this radioactivity is negligible. Truthfully, I don't think we're getting half the real info we should be getting.
I'd recommend at least getting some brown kelp, it has 100% of daily iodine in a natural form, it cant hurt you. It's better to keep the thyroid in peak condition than blast it with a potential shitload of iodine, which could be as damaging as radiation.
Maybe you and beepers may want to consider a vacation somewhere south or south east?

"It's only pollen."

Damn.

Don't know what to say...stay indoors until it blows over..?

Guess just about everyone on the planet will find out first-hand,
sooner or later...

Tepco fails to block Fukushima crack

TEPCO failed to block a crack leaking radioactive water into the ocean, and said it had discovered the bodies of its two missing employees at the stricken plant. damned.gif
They discovered the crack in a shaft storing supply cables close to reactor No 2.
Next tepco plans to attempt to use a polymer to stop the flow after Saturday’s attempts with concrete failed.

Read it ay ft.com

This is quite disturbing, looking for a crack and finding dead employees.

Hmmm...on the latest pics from Fukushima, there doesn't
seem to be much activity in the vicinity.

Shouldn't they be bringing in materials and tools, if they've
got some or other plan?

I mean, radioactivity or not, shouldn't they be pulling some
resources together...like an army does behind the front?

Sure, I'm no expert, but...
What is it I'm not getting?

NY Times contributor confirms California rainwater 181 times above drinking water standards for radioactive iodine-131

What will this do to California's produce markets? Not good.

shocked.gif This is horrific, if this is allowed to drag on I'm afraid we can all kiss our asses goodbye soon.
Some of the radiation is reaching here today. This is getting quite surreal.
