Helped them last time they were at rock bottom?
HELP! Is THAT what we are calling the rebuilding of a nation after committing acts of genocide on them now!
Sorry I don't wish to be provocative, but unless I'm missing some other incident, I don't really recall any help, just a debt deserved to repaid. It's not like America hasn't ever benefitted from the post war Japan either, is it?.

Investors ARE pulling out of Japan like rats leaving a sinking ship, sure it's not just American investors, but I'll imagine they are the majority. Suppose they would since most of America's gold reserves were pumped into Japan and not left idling in Fort Knox.

was more trying to point out that we helped with reconstruction last time and we built or designed there nuclear reactors and that might go to reason that we might be able to help them rebuild faster? didnt mean to get ur feathers ruffled but i figured yeah we can refer to whats happening to them as rock bottom they got hit with a huge quake,then a tsunami now a nuclear disaster i think they can use all the help they can get?

Concidering how heavily the world as a whole seem's to rely on Japanese components, I would have thought the *help* a forgone conclusion. Question is while the ordinary people of the world reel from one economic disaster to another as the rich of our nations become ever greedier, can anyone actually afford to?

Anyway, this is wildly offtopic so I'll just stop with that thought.

Hey everyone, been asleep the last few hours and wake to see that the aftershocks are still going strong quakes.globalincidentmap.com... 5.2 quake 48 minutes ago. i really do hope the 7-8 biggy that was predicted to follow doesn't happen.

Also it's just been said on sky news that while the Japanese gov still say the nuclear problem is still a level 4 situation (on a scale of 1-7) that the French are calling it a 6!!! Sorry i have no link it was just this second on sky news tv channel.

Thought with all this gloom that this little story might help a little...

Translation of Breaking News on Belgian newspaper:

"Tepco decided to immediately remove all personnel from the control rooms at Fukushima because radiation levels are way too high. Until now 50 workers were still at the site. That is extremely bad news.

That things are starting to get seriously wrong is also noticeable at the fact that Fukushima I falls into category 6 of the INES scale. Only Tsjernobyl was worse."

I am not very smart about these things. Sorry. However, that is why I come to this site when crisis occurs. Many smart people here. Is there any way someone could sort this out for this 50 year old mother of six boys?

Question: Reuters posted on their live feed "More detail on those IAEA figures (12:00):

The IAEA say a radiation does level of 0.6 mSv per hour was observed at the main gate of the Fukushima plant at 0600 GMT, down from 11.9 mSv per hour six hours earlier".

Is this the place having the most trouble right now? Does this mean the crisis is abating? Have they fixed it?

I have family in Guam and the Phillipiens (Sorry can not spell that right this morning. Need more coffee).

I want to thank you for all the timely information I have been getting here. Also for all the fantastic links to sites I did not know were even out there. I keep a tab up all day with this forum. When I have the MSM on the TV, your news is sometimes 2 hours before they say anything, then they act as though they are sceptical of it. Here, I get the news in real time. Thanks to all of you.

People here think and consider various scenerios. It is heartening to know that there are still thinkers in this world.

I don't think anyone is wearing a tin foil hat
when they say people need to be getting
potassium iodide pills and precautions taken
on the pacific coast of the USA.

Let alone Japan may need to be evacuated,
these NUCLEAR SPENT FUEL RODS
could be going FULL CORE MELTDOWN
any second.

My heart goes out to all in Japan!

Listen to your gut. not your government!

I jotted some notes doen this morning to keep track of which reactor is which and no, no. 4 is not the MOX one. I think the MOX one is number 3 , where there was the Sunday explosion. No 4 is where the spent fuel rods are and is the one which had the brief fire in the early hrs Japan time today.

YokosoNews LIVE is reporting a 6 plus right now - only ten kilometers below ground.

Two in a row - but they're reporting because the epicenter is inland there are no tsunami warnings yet. But they're getting really shaken up.

Like the broadcaster says - 'Living in Japan we get these (earthquakes) all the time...but not like this...'

YokosoNews is reporting no tsunami alert at this time.

peace

There are currently 23 General Electric Mark I reactors in the U.S.--the design that exploded at Fukushima. A top Atomic Energy Commission official first proposed banning this design nearly 40 years ago.



This is the website this info came from. I think they are giving updates I have not seen elsewhere. Keep this bookmarked as they will be the group to announce if it reaches the US etc....?
