Governments are great at covering up on the initial stages. But as you can see no the news people are trying to leave the country for a reason and that is because its unsafe and unhealthy to be amongst that much radiation. If their citizens are being scanned by radiation monitors as a deciding factor as to whether they are allowed to leave the country or not that means that radiation levels are pretty damn high because they are essentially quarantining their own borders.

I totally agree.

-They have quarantined their own country pretty much, and I'm sure are more than happy to let people leave to ensure survival and take some pressure off for keeping who stays alive and safe.

-Our reporters in Japan look scared. They have concerned eyes, and facial expressions. Anderson Cooper, of CNN, at one point when the power plant was blowing up, said to the anchor back in the States "Should I leave [name]? Should we get outta here now?" and the anchor had this look like he wanted to say something he couldn't, and managed to stutter out something that was prob. voiced through his earpiece.

However, even if they are being truthful, I'd be pretty nervous being on an island with all those reactors melting down. From what I saw, were a couple of rooftops blowing off of reactor buildings, intense heat and hydrogen blowing off? I think these puppies can't be saved, because they have already melted down, now it's a battle to grasp some sort of control of the radiation leak, and keep them from melting out the bottom, if they haven't already.

The man that was in control of three-mile island was speaking, and he said for the 2 hours that the fuel rods were exposed at TMI, they melted halfway down. He tried his best to not say what he isn't supposed to say, but if what he spoke is accurate, they have no way to know anything about whats going on in those buildings, and they wont know for years till they cool it down. When they finally opened up TMI they saw that what they thought was going on, really wasn't.

-Our govt will cover this up even after the truth starts leaking through, then they will one day turn it around and point fingers, though it really has nothing to do with the United States (unless we caused this earth quake/tsunami). GE built the reactors, and one of the men working on them, along with many others, saw flaws in the design that GE over looked. Something to do with the reason it failed, and that there are 16 reactors, or plants using them (was unclear on that), in the USA.

To be honest, when it comes to nuclear reactors, I'm no expert, however to do understand their design, how they operate, and when the coolant pipe brakes and you loose coolant, how the hell can you expect to keep it going till it's cooled down safely. I think they need to take these reactors, and containment buildings, and put them into a giant containment building with a massive cooling LAKE under them, so when they meltdown, they open a trap door and drop one off in the drink.

I for one believe MonkeyWrench's post. What does he have to gain from lying. Thanks for trying to let us know the truth. If it's a lie no harm to me. Anyone that doesn't believe the governments first impulse is to lie is living in a dream world.

I've done a lot of research on the Internet. What I've learned is, there's a lot of porn on the Internet, and about 85% of people posting on forums are as&h0#$.

Not actually being there its hard to say what is going down, but that being said, look at the reporters from all over the world that are there covering this. Do you honestly think that they would be there if conditions were that bad or that they wouldn't have found people with these symptoms?

I seriously hope that your not doing this for laughs because this is a potentially planet changing event and in many ways it should be (for the better). What more proof do we need that nuclear power plants are not the way to go?

Not on a navy vessel underway. There is no signal because they jam signals for good reasons " loose lips sink ships"

As far as we know, they could have FEMA camped them, before, during, and after the disasters, and the power plant is a Kansas City Shuffle.

To be fair you all need to see that the OP initially said the USS George Washington but then said Roosevelt by accident.

What is there to gain by making up something so bad as this? Another Carrier the USS Ronald Reagan is the one that had to avoid the radioactive cloud and move farther out to sea.

The USS George Washington was on the other side of the Island.

If the military is covering it up, wouldn't they think to remove the computers from the room that sailors are quarantined in? Or at least stop them from emailing?

Hey, what is wrong with posting the e-mail the "AUNT" received? Ever hear of a "foward" button in your email client? People don't hesitate to forward spam, yanno, and I think IF I was in the same sort of position I would forward EVERY email just for safekeeping. The more people you tell, the more that know.

They blocked Youtube? Seriously? How many of those guys "supposedly" on ground patrol in the "hot zone" had a military issued video cam? Like they'd get back to the ship and say, HEY, I gotta upload this to YOUTUBE! Logic, people. Logic.

Ok, maybe they have one dude with video capabilities, maybe they all have helmet cams, dunno. I do know they would shuck their uniforms and cams and it becomes the property of the US government. No personal items in the field right? TPTB took all their video immediately, if they had them.

So why block youtube and other sites, but allow email? Illogical. The military, ESPECIALLY after wikileaks, is simply not that careless. You are not hearing from any family members in the "hot zone" right now. News is speculative. Inside info from inside the military? Hardly.

How many other ATSers wanna post an email from a military member near Japan? None. Isn't happening. TPTB have information on the lockdown right now.

I'm apologize if I am coming off as trolling. I'm not a troll. I read the entire post an all links in thread and would have to say that is not how the navy operates. When the Reagan detected the radiation the ship retreated to safer waters. That is how the navy operates. Safety first. Actually training for situations like this becomes very repetitive. I just find it hard to believe the commanding officer of the USS George washington would stick thirty sailors with radiation poisoning in a room with a computer

Why can't you post the e-mail? Why hide information that you have? Edit the personal stuff.

If this is indeed a hoax, it is apathetic and deserving of remembrance.
One can only hoax so many times.

If you are serious this thread should be embraced and remembered just as much, for it reveals the ability and willingness of our government to cover up details that NEED to be brought to the public eye.

If you are true, let this thread become a symbol of all we suspect is true.

I urge all to research this as much as possible so we can figure this out.

I am on it myself right after I post this.

USN Retired.

Active Duty Sailors and Marines do NOT get to go home to a hospital. They go to a U.S. Naval Hospital like Balboa in San Diego. Or, in this case USNH Yokosuka Japan, but certainly NOT back home with mom and dad.

I am a nurse and have taken care of cancer patients that received high does of radiation (a different type I know, but radiation just the same). Leukemia patients are given high doses of radiation before a stem cell transplant, the radiation gives them poisoning. The poisoning is treated with drugs and good care on all levels. It takes time but it can be overcome - I just hope treatment would work for those that have been exposed on the ship. To me this shows that there has been significant radiation danger from almost the beginning. I don't trust anything coming from the MSM even tho I listen to it. You get the story and work it thru your mind along with other things you have read and the input of the good members of ATS to figure out what is really
going on.

I'm sorry, but this is complete BS.

At first, it was a -little- interesting, but most of the points have been brought up.

If your "Uncle Bob" or his friends were 'quarantined' and locked away as you suggest, then there would be absolutely no way of allowing them to simply e-mail or communicate willy nilly with the outside world, let alone from a carrier.

To put this in perspective. If a soldier is killed in a combat zone, such as Iraq, and it's nearby a certain base, then ALL outgoing communications are locked down. Internet facilities, phone and otherwise are locked, so rumors do not spread and so the family of the slain gets first word, if possible. Leaks do occur, as is expected, but we're talking about a free-roam base, not a localized naval vessel.

Here we are talking about supposed victims of severe radiation poisoning. US personnel. They would in NO possible way allow such a breach of security (among other things, selfish or not) to occur. They would be on full and total lockdown, everyone on the ship. It is just common sense, and should be expected.

Aside from all that, radiation poisoning of that magnitude is simply impossible to cover up.

I read that they were reported to have "returned home" near family. Nonsense. That doesn't happen. Aside from then logistical improbabilities, they simply wouldn't allow it. If you're injured "in the field" then you spend weeks or months in a facility outside of the states. If you're in contact with radiation from an exclusion zone, then you will be spending quite a lot of time in decontamination. If 30 of the crew are exposed, that means the Entire carrier was exposed, which is extremely improbable. We're talking a massive level-of-incompetence from all commanding parties involved. Just doesn't happen.

Man the trolling these past few months has been unbelievable. I cannot believe you actually would do this, to try to get attention out of this disaster. Shame on you.

Obvious hoax, troll, whatever you care to call it.

As the previous poster said, there is no way the military would allow this information to be sent. Everyone talks about how crazy powerful the US government and military are at information suppression, yet some sick guy who is 100% under the control of the Navy can just send an email whenever he wants, about whatever he wants, without a problem? Doubt it.

Second of all, to be that sick, the radiation has to be very very high. What about all the workers at the plant? None of them are dropping like flies, like these navy persons are supposed to be doing. Death would be quick if the radiation is high enough to cause bleeding and vomiting. Plus with the fallout there would be tons of dead people all over.

In addition, it would seem the navy would be smart enough to figure out radiation levels, before sending it's men into an area where there is obvious danger of radiation.

I'm just not buying it, sorry.

I sent a message to a personal friend aboard the GW several hours ago when this first popped up on ATS. He finally got back to me via cell phone. There are NO US sailors aboard the GW in quarantine with radiation illnesses. This is straight from a medical officer on board. This is a definite hoax!

The editing of the OP makes things a little confused. Did it not originally say that the sick sailors were quarantined in a room on the ship and this is where they were emailing from? In addition to my previous, unanswered question regarding why the military would allow computers with email if they were covering something up, I would also like to ask another question. Could sailors who are that sick actually bang out an email with that much info? Would they be able to get out of bed?

And finally, a question to military people here: Could the ship get from the east coast of Japan to the US in 3 days?

Not an aircraft carrier or any of the large ships. Destroyer, amphib, cruiser none of them. And a move like that takes careful planning and is usually scheduled weeks in advance. This thread and is no doubt a hoax and I would be very appreciative if mods could move this to the hoax bin because that is exactly where it belongs
