I have no idea about what has been tried and all of the safety factors involved, but if electronics fry, perhaps they could prefect a mechanical method, that's all I'm really suggesting. The Japanese have made some great mechanical toys back in the day, that is basically where my thought came from.

maybe they should throw a nuclear bomb on it

Ask the Russians what they used in the late 80's, they used a robot, an
Olympic sharpshooter to break the glass infused material, then a robot
To retrieve the material.

Sad to say experts said it would take 80 years to even touch Chernobyl.

Thats why they just capped it, 80 years pass ,check for cracks rinse and
repeat, it will never be cleaned up.

Best Japan can do is start excavating the west side, turn the site into
An island and figure out how to cap it forever.

Japan is actually pushing Fukushima as a tourist destination now. They're even talking about hosting some of the Olympic events there. They will not admit the reality of the situation.

But China complaining about Japanese pollution is the pot calling the kettle black. Here in western Japan we get air pollution warnings when there's a strong wind blowing from China.

Cesium was over the US in high amounts not long after.

Define "high amounts."
Is it the equivalent of "detectable?"

Now Phage you know betterr than that. You sound like Tepco, their rad charts are filled with "below detectable limits" dogma.

I think Japan may have to go with the Edgar Cayce plan:

The greater portion of Japan must go into the sea.

Just for arguments sake, lets take Japan out of the equation ( because obviously they cant fix this ).
Does anybody think/know of any Country able to solve this problem ?
Lets not have cost a factor as maybe the whole world can chip in and send Japan the bill afterwards

You could drop 2 trillion on the problem your
still at "Zero (0) Solution"

Ask how many grandchildren want to die to
fix this or great grandchildren, etc.

Excavate on the west side to stop groundwater
flow , use the overburden to make a huge levy.

Pump in concrete from over head for side
containment. Build a cap. Put up warning signs.

It is going to take 60 years in the USA to decommission
A shut down non meltdown plant.

TEPCO was delusional for a 40 year time frame.

not many seem to mind as long as they keep that sushi and rice plentiful...

I agree, Tepco really are delusional. The way I feel about this is, so far, diddly squat has been done to properly rectify this.
That lends to the argument that diddly squat can be done.
And if that's the case, then we are all #ed.
So before it's way, way too late, the whole world needs to get it's arse into gear and try and solve it.
(And I do hope we are not at that point already).

Well, on the upside, at least they can boil the water for their rice for free off the reactor. They can also see it in the dark.
Downside is it's a once only meal

I have a solution for tomorrow's next 'Fukushima' :

Decommission all nuclear power plants - pronto!

1. Cores are still hot- TEPCO pumping seawater to cool

2. Someone thought storing waste cores in the same
buildings was a good idea.
3. Seawater from cooling becomes irradiated needs to be
stored then cleaned.
4. They can't clean the water fast enough, so they store
it in barrels outside the facility.
5. Freshwater is seeping underground and becoming irradiated
and making its way to the sea.

I was 18 when Chernobyl happened , Every military member
that had less than 2 minutes exposure has died, just by throwing
Bricks back into the building.

It took 30 years to cap it.

TEPCO is putting water on it, they got that going for them.
