It would certainly explain their, seemingly foolish, actions as "hopeless desperation".
And the reluctance to accept help from "outside" as means to limit the shame for a mission that cannot be accomplished.
They asked Russia to send a ship that decontaminates water. Apparently Russia uses it to decomission nuclear subs and it was partially funded by Japan.
"Suzuran" is a floating treatment plant with a handling capacity of 7,000 m3/year and is one of the largest liquid radioactive waste treatment plants in the world

My reply to TEPCO et. al. is "Tomorrow is here and I know that your lies and misdirection has damned your country to become uninhabitable in the insane pursuit of profit and of saving face. You are a disgrace to your country, to your race and to humanity. Words like honor and duty have no meaning to the likes of you and you are beneath the contempt of the planet which you have irreparably poisoned. My you reap in the next life what you have sown in this one."

A few pages back, I mentioned seeing a Japanese tv talk show host and his guests smiling while eating radioactive Fukushima vegetables, saying how safe and delicious they are. I ran across this photo today of one of the same guests who was on that show:
Fukushima Prefectural Gov. Yuhei Sato, right, actor Toshiyuki Nishida, center, and other people together eat cucumbers in a demonstration that vegetable is safe to eat at Koriyama, northeastern Japan on Friday, April 1, 2011.
Koriyama is very close to Fukushima ground zero. Irresponsible.

You don't just dump what you pick up at the concrete plant into a hole. God Damn It. They don't even have shakers there if that WOULD work, which is won't because it isn't pouring it on a hole - they need to SQUEEZE it into the cracked ground. And yes you can. Its formation damage control.
Its done all the freakin' time in oil and gas.
These guys need to bring on some god damn geologists.edit on 2011/4/4 by Aeons because: (no reason given)
