Re: Fukushima

Shame on the mainstream media for colluding with the new world order government to keep this story under wrap.

snopes.com: Underground Nuclear Explosion at Crippled Japan Atomic Plant Shocks World ?

Though, I was in Tokyo for new years and swear I felt the earth move twice in a minute or two while boarding a train, no one else seemed to care so I went back to drinking my beer.

Re: Fukushima

Much like the sailors aboard the Reagan, strange spike in rare cancer cases after giving aid.....

Nothing to see here.. Move one...

Re: Fukushima

The mainstream media usually investigates and verifies before spreading hoaxes like these, but the internet has no such constraints. If you're worried, carry a geiger counter on board.

Your right. I should ignore scuttlebutt from sailors in the Pacific Fleet and rely on Dan Rather instead.

I am not saying I am all aboard with the OPs post but I would not be surprised.

Re: Fukushima

Fantasy is too nice a word to describe this "news".

Radioisotope release? Undoubtedly. "Underground nuclear explosion"? Hogwash!

Re: Fukushima








They claim this is a map of radiation spread, when it's actually a map indicating the wave height of the tsunami.

Re: Fukushima

Someone just sent me a link about this, and here the topci has come up on CF. If even half the facts in this piece are true, it is very scary.

Re: Fukushima

Just remember a terrified populace is easier to control, and view these two articles with suspicion. Who benefits?

However, I would not put Fukushima on top of my cruising destinations list, either!

Re: Fukushima

I heard the number of radiated gallons per day continuing to dump into the Pacific a while back, posted it in some thread here. it was absolutely huge. The media definitely doesnt care.... Lady GaGa humping the monitor speaker or Miley Cyrus Twerking is far more important!
I'm thinking an embargo on Japan like the one on Cuba would get things corrected pretty fast.....

Re: Fukushima

WTF are "radiated gallons'?

I heard that the ocean off Fukushima is not as radio-active as a banana.
