    Interesting dance with a couple of the cranes near R1. Did they get some sort of early warning?


    (click forward to around 11:45 for quake)

    Good to know that the hydrogen build up in the pipes was taken care of?

    I would like to know where they get all the suicide workers. Even if the active rods went china syndrome, spent rods should be kicking up a storm.

    Every time the ground shakes like that all eyes should be on 5,6, Daini and Oganawa.

    Big quake=big lies, medium quake=medium lies. I don’t believe a word they say when after every quake they quickly claim there is no additional damage. They are liars!!! In addition, I am very disappointed in the U.S. gvernment and media for ignoring this nuclear disaster.

  • Obama knows exactly whats going down at Fukushima. His bottom line is keep it quiet at ALL cost, even if it contaminates his own citizens. To be sure, they are not ignoring anything. Back in March when Fuku was going bad, they turned attention to Gaddafi and the so called Libya crisis. Smoke screen on a platter!
    America bought into it. Wow are we freakin doomed.
    Sorry, I had to vent.
