Chinas usual rhetoric, trying to curry favour and build mistrust. It's not gonna work.

@yuri. Can I just point out a fatal flaw in your argument of the age and effectiveness of NK arsenal.
Done of the US B-52s are close to 50yrs old yet still fully operational. F-16s are upward of 20yrs old and still fully functional.
The Vietcong fought the US with basically nothing (granted, that was on their home soil) the list can continue. Afghanistan.
NK maybe out of date and obsolete in nearly every regard but don't be stupid enough to right them off with arrogance.
NK would lose a conflict but people will die.

Try thinking even further down the line. How will this amazing waste of money help rebuild Fukushima or stop the next disaster? Instead of spouting gov rhetoric try thinking a little.
These trees may look nice but serve no purpose and will not help rebuild things like homes, business's, schools or the like which are all needed more than this.
I do like cherry trees though. They smell nice.

A wall would probably be a better investment but at least they'll be some firewood for after the next tsunami.
This has to up there with "saving" a dead tree in wastes of money that could've provided housing for evacuees.
buggerlugsMar. 19, 2013 - 12:26PM JST
Of course there's a cover up. They've probably been serving food from effected areas since prices dropped and although it maybe safe no one was given a choice.
Japan, the country that would rather destroy its future generations than admit a fault.

The only way to compare Japan to Germany is to show how one made efforts to change their ways and the other denies it.
Why does abe keep using other leaders speeches and stuff. Has he run out of ideas?

Yesterday I saw a pig flying! Of course there was and is a cover up.
Give it a few mins and the gov paid bloggers will be on to shout out more rhetoric and make the "truth" heard.

the bbc report on the issue. Do I trust NHK or bbc? Let me think.
6% increase in breast cancer of girls.
7% increase of luekimia in kids.
70% increase in thyroid cancer.
Just to point to a few.
Nasty stuff. Bad reading. Only time will tell if the numbers are right.

I did read up;) maybe you should instead of dpouting NHK rhetoric. I'm pretty sure Japan dropped to 55th position in press freedom didn't it.
The reasons Fukushima is worse are 1) no accurate data was released 2) the gov&tepco tried to cover up and shift blame 3) it's still on going, releasing radiation into the oceans,ground water and probably air (although that's not significant) 4) they used a tent to cover the reactors not entombing it like they should have.
Food and water are all irradiated and without proper studies no one knows what will happen.
They're finding cases of thyroid cancer among kids already up there but I never see it reported in the news...hmmm if its not true then why doesn't the gov prove it?
I'm bored with listening to idiots. Wake up sheeple. It's bad and it's gonna stay bad a long time.
buggerlugsMar. 01, 2013 - 09:16AM JST
No. Fukushima is not as bad as chynobel, it's much worse because its still continuing in a way chynobel didn't.
buggerlugsMar. 01, 2013 - 09:15AM JST
How much did that verdict cost tepco&gov I wonder.
buggerlugsMar. 01, 2013 - 12:11AM JST
Lol. Moral education based on what morals?? The traditional Japanese ones where if you screw up you commit seppuku? Ones where a sword is tested on criminals? Ones where those in power and authority commit crimes receiving only suspended or zero sentences while a commoner is sentenced to a year in jail for taking 10¥ from a shrine?

Wrong analogy. Pirates take. Sea shepherd protect although I'm still on the fence about their methods.

Potential terrorist threat. Hope they catch him/her soon. It's highly unlikely this idiot has sarin but could easily make some other type of deadly gas if they work in a commercial kitchen.
Slightly scary this one.
