Reactor 4 Building (Inside, Top Floor) at Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant

The video was taken when the deputy minister of the Cabinet Office visited the plant on April 24, 2012. He went inside the reactor building to inspect the support structure for the Spent Fuel Pool, and went up to the operation floor to view the SFP.

Around unit four, moves to unit 4 2nd floor, bottom of Spent Fuel Pool #4, and on to the 5th floor of reactor 4. What an Absolute NIGHTMARE!!!

I would love to hear what they are saying. Notice under spent fuel pool #4 the “braces” supporting the spent fuel pool? Is That really what it looks like… tinker toys supporting a tipping nuclear reactor spent fuel pool?

The move is part of a broader arrangement designed to ease tensions in the countries’ defense alliance, which stem in part from opposition to the American presence on the island.

It also reflects a desire by the Obama administration to spread U.S. forces more widely in the Asia-Pacific region, as America rebalances its defence priorities after a decade of war in the Middle East.

Philippines-China Standoff Could Lead to Open Conflict

Armed vessels from the Philippines and China continue their two-week-long standoff after Chinese fisherman trespassed into contested waters, prompting swift reaction from both navies.

Greater U.S. involvement with the Philippines and surrounding areas are part of a broader imperial plan to counter China’s regional influence and unnecessarily provoke China and increase tensions. Such confrontations like this one could lead to gratuitous violence for a petty imperial contest.

A US war against China appears, on the surface, an absolutely insane idea.

However, there are those in the bowels of power in CD who will not dismiss it out of hand, because it would prevent the US government from having to repay all the US debt which China has purchased over the years…which, courtesy of the US government deficit, it cannot begin to repay.

The Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Is Far From Over

Spent reactor fuel, containing roughly 85 times more long-lived radioactivity than released at Chernobyl, still sits in pools vulnerable to earthquakes.
