Could the Japanese government secretly be working with TEPCO to create nuclear weapons?

I am certain that if I was pumping radioactive chlorine into the ocean that takes 300,000 years to disappear, the MSM would make a pretty big deal of it. If a corporation does it, no mention of the story.
Has anyone seen a reference in the MSM to the amounts of radioactive chlorine released and the very long half-life it has? Maybe I missed it.
You're talking about Chlorine-36,......
Even after 600,000 years, it has not disappeared. Each 300,000 years half of the Chlorine-36 that was there at the beginning of that 300,000 years disappears. It's never all gone.
I think it's strange too. If they knew, why didn't they tell everyone? They must have a secret to hide. I think it might have been nuclear weapons.

Recipe for disaster:
Heat Uranium dioxide (fuel rods)
Add chlorine gas (from vaporized seawater)
Create Uranyl chloride (yellow rain)
Vent to atmosphere and dump into ocean
Stay out of the rain and pray God shall send us help.
Do you think it will increase another 10% tomorrow? That would put the Ci/gallon at 2.29 ... I bet we see less than that and maybe even a decrease.
Radiation levels of more than 1,000 millisieverts per hour

I went searching for a transcript of the press conference and could not find one. I did find a LA Times article referencing it. You can read that article here.
The quote from that article that struck me was
"The question is, what is a reasonable interval to give people information?" said Dr. Robert Peter Gale, an American physician and expert on radiation who consulted on the 1986 nuclear disaster in Chernobyl and is now advising Japan's government. "Instead of just releasing each data point you get, sometimes it's better to base things on an average of readings over a period of time."
Yes because governments always tell the truth....
About Dr. Robert Peter Gale from The Foreign Correspondents' Club of Japan's website.
Dr. Robert Peter Gale, Update on His Trip To Fukushima Two weeks after a magnitude 9.0 earthquake triggered a huge tsunami that severely damaged a Japanese nuclear power plant, the situation is still not under control. And fears of radiation exposure and food and water safety are now coming to the forefront.
Dr. Robert Peter Gale, a specialist of medical relief efforts for the Chernobyl and Tokaimura nuclear accidents, who spoke at the FCCJ upon his recent arrival to Japan, has kindly agreed to come to the Club again following a research trip to the Fukushima area to share his observations and analysis of the situation. One of the world's top specialists on cancer immunology and radiation, Dr. Gale was asked by the government of the previous Soviet Union to coordinate medical relief efforts for victims of the Chernobyl accident. In 1999 he was asked by the government of Japan to help treat victims of the nuclear criticality accident in Tokaimura NPP.
Dr. Gale was born in New York City in 1945. In 1976 he received a Ph.D. in microbiology and immunology from UCLA following doctoral work focusing on cancer immunology (with John Fahey). From 1973-1993, h e was on the faculty of the UCLA School of Medicine in the Department of Medicine, Division of Hematology & Oncology where he focused on the molecular biology, immunology and the treatment of leukemia. He also developed the bone marrow transplant program supported by the NIH. At UCLA, he was active in the Department of Psychology, where he and his colleagues studied interactions between stress, immunity and cancer.
Is there a technical reason for it? is it normal to leave such a long time lapse for such an important measurement?

Yes number 3 has been/is the one to be most concerned about. Who can watch this video from the second day of the disaster and not see what was coming:
The height and color of the cloud, looking more like a 10 Kt nuke than a hydrogen explosion, with a brown color. And sending very large pieces of steel/concrete 1 km up. Are there those in Govt. and Exec. management who are too dumb to NOT let it be thought that it was a reactor breech at that very moment??? Not likely. They knew.
Now it slowly unfolds for the rest of us to suck up over the long run. Hmm.... Who'da thunk it???
But they are very aware of the process of dumbing down the people through govt liars/MSM liars and denial of meaningful education to the masses. It will continue and get worse.edit on 28-3-2011 by 1SawSomeThings because: (no reason given)

Nuclear expert John Large today questioned Fukushima's '4' status, telling The First Post: "We're not getting the information out of the government but I would say this is a significant nuclear event. You don't blow the top off a building and say it's not."
Japanese Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said today that there was the possibility of an explosion at the No 3 reactor but he was confident the steel containing vessel around the core of the reactor would withstand the blast – as it did when No 1 reactor blew up on Saturday.
Large said he found this hard to believe.
The "jellyfish" shape of Saturday's explosion and the decision to vent the reactor's secondary containment – releasing radioactive vapour and necessitating the evacuation of local people – all suggest fuel rods had melted and leaked from the primary containment.”
Body Containing High Levels of Radiation Found near Fukushima Plant
Tepco workers not warned of radiation risk
Tepco acknowledged on Saturday it had been aware that the pool of water in question at the No. 3 reactor's turbine building could contain a high concentration of radioactive materials.
Hirota Koyama, deputy chief of Tepco's Fukushima office, said: "If a system of information sharing (about the radiation exposure risks) had been properly in place, the accident might have been averted at the No. 3 reactor. We deeply regret that it wasn't."
Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said Friday that the government now does not rule out the possibility that Tokyo Electric Power Company's Fukushima-1 No 3 reactor container may be damaged, after it detected higher radiation levels than normal inside the reactor building.
A NISA official said the government was looking at whether the No. 3 reactor container or pipelines inside the reactor building have been damaged after three workers were exposed to high radiation late Thursday.
NISA has measured the radiation inside the No. 3 building at 400 millisieverts/hour, the official said. Radiation detected in water inside the reactor building where the workers were exposed was measured at 10,000 times the usual level, he added. www.platts.com...
There's no such thing as a partial meltdown yet that's what happened at TMI. Confusing to say the least.
