**NOTE TO MODS/ADMINS : : YES, I KNOW THIS IS RELATED TO JAPAN; HOWEVER, THIS IS JUST MY OPINION**
Well, let me start off by saying that I feel for the people of Japan, it is a cruel tragedy, and even though I'm constantly watching CNN, and NHK
news stations, no amount of viewing can desensitize you to the point of NOT feeling for these people suffering. I have been on the verge of tears so
many times even THINKING about it, let-alone watching it. However, I like to stay up-to-date as possible [when it comes to MSM, anyway], so I
Why are the reactors STILL NOT under control? Why is there STILL a possibility of a meltdown? Yes I understand, they can only have a certain amount of
people in at a time, and for a controlled amount of time; however..
Many people have proposed several ways of solving this problem, yet they go with, "Trying to cool the reactors." - - Well, CLEARLY it's not
working. It's been TWO WEEKS and they are still "working on it," - - Yes, they have had setbacks.. but after so many, why the F*CK continue to
pursue the same course of action? Try something else. They're supposed to be "experts".
The only answer I can come up with...
They are too worried about carrying out a course of action that MAY ACTUALLY WORK, like covering the reactors[like others have suggested], because
they are too worried about their money. So they try and salvage as much of the plant as possible by "attempting to cool the reactors and get them
back online." - - OH WAIT, WHAT?! THEY WANT THEM BACK ONLINE?!
Big surprise there. If they really cared about safety, wouldn't they have tried a different approach by now? They keep trying the same thing over and
over and FAILING. They want the reactors back online.. yeah.. for what reason[s]?
Well, of course they tell everyone it's to cool the reactors and what-not.. but come on.. If there are other options, then WHY? They want to keep as
much of the plant intact as possible[to minimize their losses].. but, what if it's too late for that? And all these attempts to restore power and
reactivate the cooling systems are for nothing? It's already TWO WEEKS into it, yes .. it really has been TWO FULL WEEKS [and more], and the reactors
are STILL at risk of TOTAL MELTDOWN. - - Even at this point, if their attempts are for nothing, the repercussions would be unimaginable.
YOU ALL REMEMBER THIS PICTURE, RIGHT?
I'm sorry, but I don't buy it. Call me insensitive or whatever, but I simply DO. NOT. BUY. IT.
If that's how he felt, then he would be doing more to contain this situation. I read somewhere[don't quote or ask for source because I simply don't
remember.. sorry guys :'(] that the owners of the plant have more of a say in it than the government does. When the situation is out of control like
this, if the government has a better idea/solution, it should be applied, no questions asked. Obviously TEPCO hasn't been able to solve the problem,
so the government should gain control.
Next, the situation in Libya certainly doesn't help, it's drawing ALL OF THE ATTENTION AWAY from the crisis in Japan.. oh wait, that's not what
they wanted? - - Yes, I believe it is simply a decoy to attract everyone's attention to something other than what is happening in Japan. - - Which is
insanity, but HEY, what can ya do?
Finally, I feel like it's just going to keep going and going until all of the radiation has been released from the plant[however long that will
take], then they will finally just come out and say, "We have contained/fixed the situation! CRISIS AVERTED!" - - All the while, the world is an
irradiated wasteland. Yes, the WORLD. The radiation isn't going to just go, "Hay, guise! I started in Japan.. I'm gonna stay here!" - - It's
PS - - I'm not advocating that the whole world will be in post-apocalyptic form by the time this is all said and done, these are just some random
thoughts. Posted in the Rant section because well.. this is just me VENTING. Getting some thoughts out.
For those of you who have made it to the end of this post[without skipping anything], I appreciate you taking the time out of your life to do so. For
others who have visited and/or skimmed through, I appreciate that as well
