The irony and tragedy of Fukushima.
I am sure this has been pointed out before , on ATS and elsewhere - but how ironic that the first and only country to be attacked with nuclear
weapons, turns out to be the country that poisons the earth with the very same technology!?!
The point of this thread is to determine the feeling towards not just the disaster but the Japanese governments neglect of the situation.
I mean, imagine if Iran or North Korea had done what the Japanese have done - I am sure NATO forces would soon be on the march.
But there has barely been a peep from our supposed leaders, and I think we know why.
If Japan wants nuclear energy then they had better take responsibility for their cockups, like the soviets did - sacrifice some of your own and at
least try to fix this mess, but instead they let it continue leaking into the ocean. It's the most selfish act I have ever witnessed.
Another irony, it's possibly the emphasis on honour in Japanese culture that prevents them from admitting their mistake - but that failure alone
could lead to total shame and dishonour if it means it prevents other countries assisting in the cleanup, and maybe preventing our extinction.
It occured to me that a possible reason for the state of the planet and the silence on the dangers of this event could very well be that TPTB are
aware of an impending disaster beyond the scope of even Fukushima, like for example a stray comet/asteroid, a pandemic or even resource wars.
If the ruling classes intended for the world to continue the way it has, they would address this issue - but they have been operating like there is no
tommorow and this is a concern.
So what does this mean? Its ok to be gung hoe in regards to nuclear technology, providing you are an American ally?
Or the global powerbrokers have bigger fish to fry ( pardon the distasteful pun) and do not see a poisoned planet as an issue for their future vision?
Its such a mess and makes no sense, what is going on behind that curtain?
