Of course they can't contain it. They can't even contain the fact anymore that they can't contain it. Remember when they said there wasn't a chance
that the radioactivity would reach the U.S?
I never heard that. I heard it would reach the US but the levels would be too low to worry
And when they said everyone was too worried?
That applies to people outside of Japan, yes. but not inside Japan.
And when they said evacuations weren't necessary?
Maybe they said that, but I missed it, I heard them recommend evacuations.
It's dangerous for anyone within 30km of the facility but even a full meltdown wont spread any more radiation to the US than multiple atomic bomb
tests did, up to and including this one:
Tsar Bomba - King of the Bombs
