I'm certainly not going to slam you. I have to get my head clear before I can offer any thought at all. Let's assume Japan was intentional. Are you suggesting that its purpose is to create or increase American anger at the Japanese? Sorry, I told you I was confused.

Well if you view 911 as a false flag event built around the planned obsolescence of the WTC urban infrastructure, then maybe something similar is happening in Japan. The Tōkai II plant in Tokyo and the Fukushima II were designed and built over 20 years ago and there are probably still a lot of buildings that were not designed for a major quake still standing on the island.
The Japanese use planned obsolescence in most of their other engineering fields so their civil engineering projects, power plant construction, etc probably was designed with a set lifespan. The Fukushima II plant already had one accident back in 1989 when a coolant pump blade broke off. That event along with the Tokaimura nuclear accident, and the Mihama steam explosion significantly eroded public perception of the nuclear industry.
So maybe Japan is getting ready for some major infrastructure upgrades to improve safety, stimulate their economy, and clean the publicity slate for their nuclear industry? If this is the case then there probably is a significant amount of psyops involved that may not be particularly transparent.
Apparently a new much safer nuclear plant design was approved in 2007. The ESBWR uses natural circulation with no recirculation pumps or their associated piping, thereby greatly increasing design integrity and reducing overall costs. Maybe its time for these new 3rd generation plants?edit on 12-3-2011 by Bordon81 because: (no reason given)
