It's a losing battle. Japan needs outside help, but the risk are too dangerous for the knowledgeable man. So Japanese knows what is best for this situation. Japanese low lifes are expendable. Until they no longer can be recruited, the world needs to accept it and then bring in their own undersirables to Japan. Just the way it will end up.
Are you being sarcastic? Japanese knows what's best for the situation? Low lifes (homeless from the disaster and other problems) are expendable and we need to accept it and send our own homeless/undesirables there?!?
The Japanese aren't making any decisions, they don't even know the truth of what happened. The Government and Tepco are calling all the shots and lying - either overtly or by omission.

I don't see any mention anywhere in ATS of the American sailors dying from radiation poisoning that are suing TEPCO.
US Sailors Sick From Fukushima Radiation File New Class Action
The suit includes an infant born with a genetic condition to a sailor who served on the USS Ronald Reagan as radiation poured over it during the Fukushima melt-downs, and an American teenager living near the stricken site. It has also been left open for "up to 70,000 U.S. citizens [who were] potentially affected by the radiation and will be able to join the class action suit."
Now docked in San Diego, the USS Reagan's on-going safety has become a political hot potato. The $4.3 billion carrier is at the core of the U.S. Naval presence in the Pacific. Critics say it's too radioactive to operate or to scrap
The re-filing comes as Tepco admits that it has underestimated certain radiation readings by a factor of five. And as eight more thyroid cancers have surfaced among children in the downwind region.
It says Tepco failed to disclose that the $4.3 billion nuclear-powered aircraft carrier was being heavily dosed from three melt-downs and four explosions at the Fukushima site. The Reagan was as close as a mile offshore as the stricken reactors poured deadly clouds of radiation into the air and ocean beginning the day after the earthquake and tsunami.
The plaintiffs' ailments parallel those of downwinders irradiated at Hiroshima/Nagasaki (1945), during atmospheric Bomb tests (1946-1963), and from the radiation releases at Three Mile Island (1979) and Chernobyl (1986). Among them are reproductive problems and "illnesses such as Leukemia, ulcers, gall bladder removals, brain cancer, testicular cancer, dysfunctional uterine bleeding, thyroid illnesses, stomach ailments and a host of other complaints unusual in such young adults."
One 22-year-old sailor declared to the court that "Upon my return from Operation Tomodachi, I began losing my eyesight. I lost all vision in my left eye and most vision in my right eye. I am unable to read street signs and am no longer able to drive. Prior to Operation Tomodachi, I had 2/20 eyesight, wore no glasses and had no corrective surgery." Additionally, he said, "I know of no family members who have had leukemia."
Plaintiff "Baby A.G." was born to a Reagan crew member on Oct. 15, 2011--seven months after the crew members exposure--with multiple birth defects.

The denial in these threads is absolutely amazing sometimes.
I've seen it before in other forums. The same thing. I mean the 100% exact thing. It's like they have a manual.
(3) Noble Eightfold Path It is believed that the Buddha preached the Noble Eightfold Path as a new way of spiritual seeking.
Right view: the right way of looking at things
Right intention: Correct understanding of right view
Right speech: speech without false words
Right action: right conduct
Right livelihood: right occupation
Right effort: right diligence
Right mindfulness: right attention
Right concentration: right meditation
We are in no state of mind of assuming these teachings. I wish you could keep these words in mind to make TEPCO and the government realise their responsibilities for the accident. They are neglecting and underestimating the fundamental human rights of the victims of the accident. I also hope that these teachings will serve as life guidance for the children of Futaba.
We have taken many lessons from the accident in Fukushima- among other things the disdain for human life. The government ordered us to evacuate from the town. I consider this to be a declaration of war against us. How can we fight against the authorities without arms, means and authorisations?
There is a memorial museum of Auschwitz concentration camp in Shirakawa City (in Fukushima). It is well known that Nazis massacred millions of Jews with poisonous gas. When it comes to Fukushima, the health and genetic structures (DNA) of the population there are being damaged by poisonous radioactivity. What an irony! We cannot guarantee the safety of health without evacuating the population immediately. Decontamination should be conducted later over a long period of time.
There are not a sufficient number of credible studies that prove the safety standard of man-made radioactivity. Some say that the radiation does not cause any impact on our health even in a living condition of radioactive dosage of 20mSv/year. If they dare to say so, let them live in such a place with their families to prove the safety. It is not until then that the people can finally return to Fukushima. They are using the people in Fukushima as guinea pigs. It is essentially identical to the situation in which a tyrant is launching missiles against his own people.
