You obviously need to get some factual info
I could have given plenty of other examples ranging from Latin America to Asia but the list is too exhaustive!
but to rebut you briefly, take a look at Operation Odyssey Dawn conducted in Libya by the US.
It is much easier to kill from the air and less memorable for the US public.
And you have got to be joking when you say there weren't Americans in Libya for this op,
Who do you think does the recce in such ops?
And you still have worked out 9/11?
Afghanis did it? Are you sure it wasn't the Libyans?

Tsunami is an English word introduced from the Japanese language.
The GE designed plant, designed by Americans placed the diesel generators in the plant's basements
Not a design that should have been adopted by the Japanese government-maybe they forgot the origin of the word tsunami?

The Asahi Shinbun reports alarming levels of contamination in Fukushima this month.
Even outside of the evacuation zone there is mind blowing radioactivity- there are 100,000 becquerels in the mud in the Myotoishi reservoir in the Takagi district of Motomiya.
55 kilometers west of the Fukushima plant, there is contamination at 370,000 becquerels.
And when radioactive materials have also been dumped around Japan without any oversight shows how little control has been exercised.
It has been proven that this accident was down to human error!
To just have the victims' lives ruined by this disaster without recompense is Japan's biggest scandal ever

A well respected nuclear engineer Mr A Gunderson, on a trip to Tokyo collected soil and dust samples from the vicinity of his hotel in central Tokyo .
The radioactivity in the sample was sufficient to be classified as 'nuclear waste'!
Also, Dr Busby has done analysis on car filters from Kanto
Even NHK reported contaminated drinking water in Yokyo after 3/11
As you are aware radioactivity builds in the environment.
I suggest you buy a Geiger counter and do some measurements yourself

Basically the government is allowing the people back to receive the same dose as a nuclear power plant worker might receive in a year.of course the fallout is not uniformly dispersed and thus some people may live in or be exposed to hotspots.
Dust,leaves and continual movement of debris not to forget that the plant still regularly purges itself of extremely contaminated water 24/7 mean that the residents will be gambling with their health
It has been discovered that a fetus is 500 times more sensitive to radiation than an adult human being so it is not beyond imaging that any pregnancies carried in or around the area will be compromised.
The exclusion area around Chernobyl is still off limits to people for resettlement as the Russians understand that nuclear contamination doesn't disappear in a few years - Japanese seem to think differently.

The crisis is Japanese debt of course.
What happens if QE stops?
The money lessens and as a consequence interest rates will rise on Japan's debt of a quadrillion yen
The interest on this debt is unplayable.
The Japanese govt defaults and confidence in the yen fails
On the other hand QE continues indefinitely and inflation rears its head making the yen but not yen assets worthless
A poison pill in both hands.....

Sorry, I've been to Thailand many times and with each visit enjoy it less and less.
Those idyllic islands written about here are and have been exploited.
The amount of plastic garbage in the sea is ridiculous!
One beach I happened to walk on in Koh Samui was full of broken glass discarded by the Thais themselves.
Take a taxi from the airport to your hotel and the chance of getting ripped off is high!
Go to Phuket and pay higher prices for your food and hotel than you find in Japan
Thailand suffers from China's pm 2.5 making the air quality very bad at times
Lastly, watch how the Thais respect themselves-if you didn't notice there is a civil war going on right now!!!

Any talk of the promulgation of nuclear energy must address the 1.storage and confinement of spent radioactive nuclear fuel
2.the ability to render the effects of nuclear contamination harmless
3.provisions to compensate the victims of nuclear contamination
