Blundering blunderbuss, 3 years on and TEPCO still has yet to prove it can handle the most basic of actions responsibly. Yep start the reactors up as I have full confidence those in charge have less of an idea than I do. Nice to see the best they can do is inadequate.

They are hard men/ woman ..no pink t-Shirts. They are doing the best they can with the equipment they have. They have been searching for bodies after the Tsunami, they are asked to do the most disgusting jobs, with no lolly pop. These young men and women are a dedicated group. This soft sell is just for general consumption, it's much harder then that once you are in. But very rewarding.

Went to 1st Division open day on the weekend, it was full on complete with big headed mascots. I understand why people join, I understand it's an institution that can push people to their limits. But the current government are asking too much of the force. It's equipment is outdated the training obsolete, to be a viable defense force a huge overhaul is needed. Sacrifice for your country is one thing making the aggressor die for theirs is the goal.

It's 2014 not 1984, get a grip Japan...all of the/your "Leaders" are generations behind, they are still focussed
on WW2 , nebular power gives them junk in their pants. They don't care about the future at all. The Hebivores will inherit a guilt free poisoned "suprising" future.

There appears to be a problem at the center, an inquest would be helpful. But I doubt anything will happen.

Ha ha ha haaaa, little bit of international perspective, ha ha ha science! Science? Billions spent on a industry that is a loss. Billions diverted into criminal pockets, and the international community says NO! Who would have thought!

Japan needs stimulus?, the tax base is shrinking, the old need welfare (deserved) and these problems apparently are not a priority? Ok print more money. What a bizarre Government.

Swooping like a tortuous and low and behold after six months preparation all players are unable to remember or find anything. Looks good though unless you have a monicume of intelligence.

If you believe the theory of Japan freeing other countries from oppression by oppressing said countries, then you are an idiot, what country looks back and says thank goodness for Japan, coming, raping and killing in a most brutal way. What country celebrates it's liberation buy the Imperial Japanese Army. What country says thank you Japan.
