According to a report made public Wednesday by the federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission, GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy said that it had discovered extensive cracking and "material distortion" and that it likely would recommend that the boiling water reactor plants using its Marathon control rod blades replace them more frequently than they had been told to previously. "The design life, if not revised, could result in significant control blade cracking and could, if not corrected, create a substantial safety hazard and is considered a reportable condition," the company said in its report. Both David Lochbaum of the Union of Concerned Scientists and Arnold Gundersen, a former nuclear industry engineer who now frequently consults with groups critical of the industry, said the faulty blades could make affected control rods inoperable. "It could either slow down or stop the control rod from inserting" when plant operators were trying to reduce power or shut a plant down, Lochbaum said. Gundersen said control rods "are like the brakes on a nuclear reactor."”

fukushima is a psyops
you think folks in japan don't give an f about their kids, and would rather save face?
wouldn't their kids dying be an even greater loss of face.
you think china, korea, etc wouldn't be up in arms about this?
Overcoming the Japan Radiation Propaganda 'Tsunami' Is An Uphill Battle educate-yourself.org... educate-yourself.org...
I posted many articles from March 12, 2011 onwards, and did many radio shows in 2011, that addressed the subject of the Fukushima radiation scare psyops. The Illuminated Ones want to create fear about nuclear energy and get the public to demand the shutdown of nuclear plants and replace them with natural gas power plants using a new German Turbine design (you see why Merkle in Germany banned nuclear plants and will phase out all current nuke plants). You notice how this campaign dovetails with the fracking natural gas activity here in America and the development of a natural gas pipe lines from Russia into Turkey, Afghanistan, etc. There was no meltdown in Fukushima. See the articles I posted in March 2011. The whole scenario was staged. The first comment posted at the end of the Sircus promo piece talls the story.
The US Senator (name escapes me now, probably because I have a hard time remembering names of Bozos) who just recently visited and was filmed at ground zero at good ole'"Fuki" telling everyone afterward how "devasting" the situation was, wore no protective clothing- neither did his entourage- so why weren't they all fried to a crisp if it is as bad as they report?-
but God forbid if they possibly picked up the Stuxnet virus and are now carriers... :-)
The helicopter photograph of the zirconium alloy uranium fuel rod storage racks show no fuel rods. The racks are empty. The racks and the crane on top of the racks is not burnt or melted. If the rods had remained in the nuclear core without coolant there would have been a meltdown and there would have been a plume of steam and smoke as the uranium melted through the bottom of the containment building into the water table below. The plume of steam and smoke would have been the most photographed event ever. If the fuel rods were in the racks when the bomb went off they would have been molten pile of sticks when the water level was allowed to drop.
There is no plume of steam and smoke.There were no fuel rods in the core. There were no old fuel rods in storage in the building.
All the experts probably knew there was no uranium in the building as soon as the photograph was released. They are part of the psy-op. Jeff Rense is part of the psy-op. Stephen Lendman is part of the psy-op.
Somebody with the Tokyo Power company or the Japanese government ordered the pulling of the fuel rods possibly in 2010 when the Bonin Islands 1200 kilometres south of Tokyo were hit with clusters of manmade earthquakes. They may have discovered the nukes hidden in the containment buildings and not wanting to trigger them left them where they were and pulled the fuel rods.
The planners of the attack on Japan are furious. They have continued the artificial earthquakes.
This Stephen Lendman article says Japan planned the meltdown in order to poison America. This is a classic example of the bully saying the victim faked his black-eye.
