what i don't get about this whole nuclear screw up is that in a totalitarian regime like the USSR people lined up in the TENS of thousands to try to save their country and by extensions the world but the democratic and supposedly honorable people of japan do nothing but send 50 people(the fukishima fifty should be praised) in and if memory from the japan thread is correct rounding up homeless to try to stop it,in the land of the rising sun land of samurais and honor why have they not stopped the problem? why are they not lining up to die for the betterment of their nation
tepco and their ilk will bring a thousand generations of shame upon their families for not acting for the good of their nation and the world
shameful truly shameful

So, doing like everyone else, and grabbing sources (which btw, were sourced to show people claiming that this would end life as we know it, so yeah, I grabbed BIN), is a bad thing now. Man I wish I could keep up with the rules here.
Not all the sources, or places I'm getting my information from are PR sources. Some of them are other message boards, which linking to is frowned upon, so I'm having to paraphrase them, and cherrypick information from them, without directly linking to them.

There is a wonderful documentary on YouTube about the Liquidators, I believe it's called "The Battle of Chernobyl" or somesuch. It's truly heroic.
