- Dangerous Crossroads: UK military steps up plans for Iran attack
British officials consider contingency options to back up a possible US action as fears mount over Tehran's capability
The Ministry of Defence believes the US may decide to fast-forward plans for targeted missile strikes at some key Iranian facilities. British officials say that if Washington presses ahead it will seek, and receive, UK military help for any mission, despite some deep reservations within the coalition government.
In anticipation of a potential attack, British military planners are examining where best to deploy Royal Navy ships and submarines equipped with Tomahawk cruise missiles over the coming months as part of what would be an air and sea campaign.
They all gone barking mad. What good will do another blown up nuclear reactor, another uninhabitable radioactive country and most probably another devastating war.
- An Israel Attack on Iran: Military Suicide
Reportedly, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has recently sought to drum up cabinet support for a military strike against the nuclear sites of the Islamic republic of Iran. In joint efforts with the defense minister Ehud Barak, Netanyahu has succeeded in wringing support for such a reckless act from the skeptics who were already opposed to launching an attack on Iran. Among those he managed to convince was Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman.
There are still those in the Israeli cabinet who are against such a move including Interior Minister Eli Yishai of the ultra-Orthodox Shas party, Intelligence Minister Dan Meridor, Strategic Affairs Minister and Netanyahu confidant Moshe Yaalon, Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz, army chief Benny Gantz, the head of Israel's intelligence agency Tamir Pardo, the chief of military intelligence Aviv Kochavi and the head of Israel's domestic intelligence agency Yoram Cohen.
However, the support voiced by Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman is considered an ace in the hole for Netanyahu who also enjoys the full- throated support of Washington.
Heads of intelligence being against the attack indicates there is no significant threat from Iran and that the potential occurence of the attack would be just an extension of the allready existing political or better corporate agenda.

- Chiba gov't: Cement company discharged water far over radiation limit into Tokyo Bay
CHIBA -- Radioactive cesium far in excess of a provisional legal limit was found in drainage water that a cement company discharged into Tokyo Bay, the Chiba Prefectural Government has announced.
According to the prefectural government, water that Ichihara Eco Cement discharged into the bay contained 1,054 to 1,103 becquerels of cesium per kilogram of the water, 14 to 15 times the provisional upper limit that the central government has set.
hum... smth is fishy here. Fact is that up untill now they picked 2 dumping spots for radioactive waste one being Fukushima and the other Tokyo Bay. Why the hell from all places, dump radioactive waste at Tokyo's doorstep? Perhaps beacuse the analysis of Tokyo Bay waters, BEFORE such dumps would occur, could give a clear picture of the contamination of Tokyo residents? Just a thought
- Forgotten radioactive materials cropping up in wake of Fukushima nuclear crisis
Residents wary about radiation in the wake of the ongoing the crisis at the Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant have been uncovering abandoned radioactive substances, with repeated discoveries of radium-266 in Tokyo's Setagaya Ward.

Though many other measurements are given provided, there is no mention of the radiation level being emitted from the bottle.
However, Mainichi notes radiation levels around the supermarket remain high:
“Even after the bottle and surrounding soil were removed, however, a sweep of the supermarket property found 12 places both in- and outside the building emitting relatively high radiation of between 0.2 and 12 microsieverts per hour.”
- Minister reprimands NISA chief for tardy reporting of xenon detection at Fukushima plant
The head of Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency (NISA) was issued a stern reprimand on Nov. 2 for tardiness in delivering news to the government that the No. 2 reactor at the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant may have briefly reached criticality.

- Extraordinary amount cesium from fish south to Fukushima
11/2/2011,Fukushima local government announced their radiation measurement data of fish in about 50km area from Fukushima plants.
They took 109 samples for some reason but 7 of them had cesium,which is even over the “safety limit”.
- Temelín nuclear competition heating up
"I'm impressed by what [the finalists] are doing and their efforts, but they all have a way to go, and they know it," said Václav Bartuška, the government-appointed commissioner overseeing the project. The three finalists are Japanese-owned but U.S.-backed Westinghouse, French state-owned energy company Areva and the consortium including Czech company JS Škoda and Atomstroyexport, a subsidiary of Russian state-owned company Rosatom.
Hum, didn't know Westinghouse was Japanese-owned now. :/ Explains a lot. Now, apart from being afraid of all GE Mark1's we can be as afraid of all nuclear powerplants built by Westinghouse, since japanese performance is clearly visible on the example of Fukushima.
Make no mistake about it, what they are doing to their own people, they will do to any other country. If things blow up, in their eyes everything will be safe, peachy and always on cold shutdown no matter what.
But apart from that, the whole article is such a bunch of BS. It clearly shows Chech gov. is trying to hype up the people on how good they are with negotiations, while the truth is that they are buying a technology that is not proven, not functioning in the real world and according to thorium reactor announcements from China and India, obsolete before the power plants even hit the production.
- Hotel Owner in Fukushima Pref. Sues TEPCO
Tokyo, Nov. 2 (Jiji Press)--The owner of a hotel in Iwaki, Fukushima Prefecture, has filed a damages suit of some 60 million yen against Tokyo Electric Power Co. <9501>for allegedly disrupting plans to sell the business.
At the first hearing in Tokyo District Court on Wednesday, the TEPCO side clarified its stance of fighting the case in court.
- No sustained nuclear fission at Fukushima - Operator
Based on further examination, we judged the discovery of xenon in the No. 2 reactor at the plant was caused by spontaneous fission that occurs in any idle reactor, and we don't see any fresh problems at the No. 2 reactor," Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) spokesman Junichi Matsumoto told a press conference...

E.ON (EONGn.DE), Germany's largest utility by sales, will file a complaint with Germany's highest court claiming compensation for the country's nuclear exit, German paper Financial Times Deutschland reported.
E.ON wants the german taxpayers to pay for its failed investments in the deadly nuclear industry. If that would be any other country this would be worrying, but expecting tht german taxpayers will swallow this down is a bit optimistic from E.ON's side.
- Nukespeak: the selling of nuclear technology from the Manhattan Project to Fukushima
On October 4, 2011, Sierra Club Books will publish the 30th anniversary edition of Nukespeak: The Selling of Nuclear Technology from the Manhattan Project to Fukushima exclusively in e-book format. First published in 1982 in the wake of the first great nuclear plant accident at Three Mile Island, the original edition, written by Stephen Hilgartner, Richard C. Bell, and Rory O’Connor, examined the turbulent history of the nuclear industry, documenting the extraordinary public relations campaign that developers undertook to sell nuclear technology.
If i may borrow from Mr. Gerald Celente. " It's not worth the paper it's not printed on."
" Thus this 30th anniversary edition is inspired by yet another nuclear catastrophe, the partial meltdown of three reactors at Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi plant in March of 2011—the third great nuclear plant accident, following Three Mile Island and the far-worse meltdown at Chernobyl in 1986."

And a professional engineer from Worcester Polytechnic Institute's (WPI) Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering says that levels of radioactive cesium in US topsoil have recently been detected at levels up to 10,000 percent higher than previous studies have found.
- Radioactive Rice Straw Headache for Japan Disaster Areas
Tome, Miyagi Pref., Nov. 3 (Jiji Press)--Work to dispose of radiation- tainted rice straw has stalled in Miyagi and other eastern and northeastern Japan prefectures, as local authorities are finding it difficult to secure temporary storage sites in the face of concerns among citizens. A large part of such radioactive rice straw has still been kept at the premises of local livestock farms. Rice straw is used as livestock feed.
- "The only way we will ever have free energy is if we give it away."- Dr Peter Lindemann.
Tom Valone is a former patent examiner who was fired years ago from the patent office and recently won a lawsuit against the US Patent Office. Tom was awarded reinstatement and six years of back pay. Dr Thomas Valone estimated that patent applications for FREE ENERGY related technology have been "secretized" over 3,000 times over the years.
In a 2001 email to Gary Vesperman, Valone wrote in part: Quote-"As a former Patent Examiner, I can tell you that the number of "securitized" patents in the vault at the Patent Office (Park 5 Bldg.) is closer to 4000 or more. They never receive a patent number, and the inventor is rarely, if ever, compensated by the government for use of the invention." The U.S. Patent Office has a nine-member committee that screens patents for national security implications. A hidden purpose of this committee is to also screen energy-related patents which could threaten the power and fossil fuel companies, -End Quote
As the #occupy movement has clearly shown and mirrored is that we, the people of the world are at war with ruthless corporations. The nuclear power industry is the best example. Flat broke governments are an ideal playing ground for senseless capital, where corrupt politicians can and do sell out their own people to capital interests.
People must understand, that each dollar, euro, ... that goes out of their pockets into a pocket of a corporation, just means another nail in the coffin of their liberty and freedoms.
So basically i just want to appeal to any potential free energy inventors out there, to make all their inventions "open source" and they can rest assured that people of the world will appreaciate it.
Whatever an inventor might be after, being fame & glory, moneys or recognition or simply an altruistic notion, his/her interests will be better served if he/she publishes his/her thoughts and designs on a webpage and adds a donate button to it, rather than going through government and corporate mills.
- Anonymous ex-Fukushima engineer: “Fuel pellets could have been carried to different parts of plant” — TEPCO won’t deny that “fuel may have burrowed into ground” -NYT
The Times reported on another interview about the location of the fuel, this one with “a former nuclear engineer with three decades of experience at a major engineering firm… who has worked at all three nuclear power complexes operated by Tokyo Electric” who spoke on the condition of anonymity:
“His main concern was that officials could not pinpoint the exact location of the nuclear fuel — which would greatly complicate the cleanup.” “He said that tiny fuel pellets could have been carried to different parts of the plant, like the spaces under the reactor during attempts to vent them in the early days. That would explain several cases of lethally high radiation readings found outside the reactor cores.” “If the fuel has been dispersed more widely, then we are far from any stable shutdown.”
If officials need help with pinpointing the exact location of nuclear fuel, they might want to look at our cold meltdown page.
It will need a different title hmm... Cold meltdown aka Fukushima syndrome.
yep, that describes it well. Everything is suppose to be cool, but is melting, and China really doesn't have anything to do with it.
- New International Report Shreds Japan's Carefully Constructed Fukushima Scenario
The Fukushima Daichi complex was one of the 25 largest nuclear power stations in the world and the Fukushima I reactor was the first GE designed nuclear plant to be constructed and run entirely by the Tokyo Electric Power Company, or TEPCO.
Needless to say, in the aftermath of the disaster, both TEPCO and the Japanese government were at pains to minimize the disaster’s consequences, hardly surprising given the country’s densely populated regions.
But now, an independent study has effectively demolished TEPCO and the Japanese government’s carefully constructed minimalist scenario. Mainichi news agency reported that France’s l’Institut de Radioprotection et de Surete Nucleaire (Institute for Radiological Protection and Nuclear Safety, or IRSN) has issued a recent report stating that the amount of radioactive cesium-137 that entered the Pacific after 11 March was probably nearly 30 times the amount stated by Tokyo Electric Power Co. in May.

- The Detrimental Effects of the Fukushima Disaster on United States Public Health
Despite the assurance of Japanese government officials, radioactive material from the Fukushima disaster has spread far beyond the evacuation zone. In fact, not only has a great deal of Fukushima radiation been detected in Tokyo way beyond the evacuation zone, but United States researchers are now revealing that radioactive cesium has been detected in US soil in levels that indicate a severe threat to human health.
Marco Kaltofen, PE, of the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) in Massachusetts, recently discussed current issues revolving around radiation exposure in Japan.
A Registered Professional Engineer investigating Fukushima nuclear material release, Kaltofen stated his findings in a presentation entitled ‘Radiation Exposure to the Population in Japan After the Earthquake’. Presented in Washington D.C. on Monday morning, Kaltofen stated:

- Is Israel Considering a Pre-Emptive Military Strike on Iran’s Nuclear Facilities?
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is trying to rally support in his cabinet for an attack on Iran, according to government sources.
The country’s defense minister Ehud Barak and the foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman are said to be among those backing a pre-emptive strike to neutralize Iran’s nuclear ambitions. But a narrow majority of ministers currently oppose the move, which could trigger a wave of regional retaliation.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is due to report on the state of Iran’s nuclear capabilities on November 8, and that assessment is likely to influence Israel’s decision. webmasters comment:
Idiots at IAEA are responsible for giving justification for failed Iraq war. They think a cotton plant in Syria is a threat, while Fukushima is close to cold shutdown. Stupid fcks. This institution is one of the most corrupt and useless agencies ever formed. It should be disbanded immediately.

- TEPCO: Either neutrons caused “chain reaction” OR a criticality due to increased water injection
“TEPCO suspects a nuclear fission chain reaction took place caused by existing neutrons within the reactor or that very local criticality took place as the water temperature in the reactor decreased and water density increased, due to the recent increase of water injection”
Hollywood that seems so out of ideas lately should hire this Tepco scriptwriter.

- Secret nuclear plant found in Syria – IAEA
International Atomic Energy Agency investigators say they’ve discovered a secret nuclear plant in north-western Syria. They claim the complex has a similar design to a uranium enrichment plant Muammar Gaddafi tried to build in Libya.
However, there is apparently no evidence of nuclear production at the site, which is currently used as a cotton-spinning plant.
IAEA (International atomic energy assholes), think that Fukushima is under control. They see no problem in Fukushima but they do see it in a building not fit to be a cotton-spinning plant, which is by their opinion a secret nuclear site.
DEAR IAEA, HOW ARE THOSE SADDAM'S NUKES GOING?

- India plans 'safer' nuclear plant powered by thorium
India has announced plans for a prototype nuclear power plant that uses an innovative "safer" fuel.
Officials are currently selecting a site for the reactor, which would be the first of its kind, using thorium for the bulk of its fuel instead of uranium – the fuel for conventional reactors. They plan to have the plant up and running by the end of the decade.
Thorium is considered "abundant" (it's only 3x times of uranium in earths crust) mostly beacuse much less is needed to run a reactor than with uranium. If we are to talk of necessary evils, Thorium reactors would be the only viable option for survival of the nuclear industry.
But it still produces nuclear waste, among it plutonium, altough in much smaller quantities.
The main benefit of thorium reactors over uranium / Mox reactors is, that they can not blow up. While uranium powered plants need constant source of cooling for the core, with thorium reactors the chain reaction stops as soon as the outside source is turned off.
I am not by any chance promoting any kind of nuclear technology, but with all above being said, i really don't understand any country investing moneys into building old tech uranium reactors, either they be french, japanese, american or russian, while now at least 2 countries have declared that they will have thorium reactors up and running in a very short time. (China was the first to announce building a set of thorium reactors for commercial electricity production). Is this why developed countries are ditching their old nukes, or is it the nuclear war drums beating from every corner? It just might be both.

- Tepco Detects Nuclear Fission at Fukushima Station
Sonoda denied reporters' claims it was a publicity stunt. ‘‘I drank it because there shouldn't be any concerns about the water,” he said. “I didn't intend to say it's completely safe by drinking it.”
The article is about china syndrome occuring all over fukushima, but i just had to publish this paragraph...
I didn't intend to say it's completely safe by drinking it.”
No, you just exposed your self as the most stupid gov. official to hit the stage in decades.
Or perhaps some nuke shills are holding his family hostage... beacuse honestly apart from utter stupidity and/or threats i see no other reason why someone would drink water out of pools where nuclear fission is taking place.
Note that if he did it for moneys, that fits into stupidity category.

- Not gone fission: New fears at Fukushima
The nuclear fuel of the second reactor followed the fate of the first and third, melting down and burning through the contour of the reactor. Experts say that at certain conditions nuclear fission could restart and lead to a new meltdown, but the likelihood of such an event is next to zero.
Imagine how many trees must have been destroyed to print all these nuke "experts" Phd's, that are not even suitable to be used as toilet paper... so sad.
