The special forces now have a name, a face and an identity that allows them to eventually find their target. Happy Days. The time for this regional psychosis to end was before it even started, the Arab Nation needs to step up and put boots on the ground. NOW.

Nuclear power is not an inevitable feature of energy supply systems. It has many attractive characteristics, but also a unique combination of problems, including military connections, problems of civil liberties, of safety and environment, of regard for future generations and, above all, of deteriorating economy. It's the most expensive, dangerous and damn right stupidest thing the baby-boomers got excited about.
Then, added into the mix are the lies, deceit, obfuscation and the Apologist Clowns, its the funniest circus in town.
4 years and counting, nuclear free and fancy... safe.

@himajin et al, 'hope' 'pray' 'wish' etc... none of these human sentiments will prevent the larger movements that WILL happen between the tectonic plates on this planet, none. What we term earthquakes WILL happen on differing scales of intensity as long as this planet is active. Pre shocks are an established part of our limited understanding of the phenomena, if you especially live on a or near plate boundary, though not exclusively, you need, must, have to realise earthquakes are, will and do happen.

@Nigel, which you can readily conclude I do by understanding my list. QED. Natural disasters in Japan have killed more of this nation's people per capita than anywhere else.

@Reckless, that's a BIG call for a Japanese person, they --especially in the countryside-- have a much deeper connection to 'their' land than you or I will ever have. There's the ancestral graves nearby to be cared for and that's where they wish to end up to, with the long dead rellies. It really isn't in anyway as simple as you'd like to think. It's a Japanese thing.
Why's everyone get uppity about how shelters for refugees should be built? Why wouldn't you want a refugee to be comfortable, warm and in safe housing? I don't get it.

@Mike] The Washington Post, Bloomberg, The Independent... etc, etc but no, let's listen to 'you'? No. Let's listen to the informed, unbiased and objective reason of truth and fact. Perhaps you missed it, you're not informed about the monitor, or monitors in general, as you didn't know monitors are built with alarms as part of their function.
