well it would makes sense that they would, they've already told them to evacuate and I don't believe that was entirely voluntary was it? So why wouldn't they move the rest.

Not downplaying the situation just saying...it makes sense to do this and i dont understand why it wasnt done sooner

because the radiation would not kill them earlier.

Having very carefully observed the media manipulation, dubious decision making and bodge ups (like people forgetting to switch things on and off at the plant) over the last few days I am inclined to agree that the exercise has not really had the best inentions of the ppopulace in Japan at heart!

Here is a quote from an article by the Japanese CNIC, the Citizen's Nuclear Information Center:

"The plan to burn MOX fuel in light water reactors is called the pluthermal program in Japan. In the core of a pluthermal reactor, there are ten times more actinides such as plutonium, americium, and curium than the core of a uranium reactor. Actinides cause serious internal exposure in human bodies and thus pose a very serious threat to human health.

In short, exposure doses resulting from an accident at a pluthermal reactor would be twice those produced by an accident at a uranium reactor. A given exposure dose would be received by residents over twice the distance. The overall affected area would be four times larger. When fatalities by cancer from an accident at a pluthermal reactor is calculated with an assumption that Tokyo was downwind, the number of cancer fatalities would increase from 0.4 million in the case of an accident at a uranium reactor to 10.6 million. In view of such risks, MOX utilization is simply too dangerous."
