Radiation Levels Strong Enough To Kill A Man In Seconds Detected At Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant



if this is true and it is, then how in the hell are they ever going to clean that up and just when will this event ever end?  and what are the ramifications for the world?

There will be no clean up.

So -- in context, S&P d/gs TEPCO to FFF.

I think everyone knew that HPD..

This is not the clean up you're looking for.

Slow indiscriminate depopulation as planned / desired.  Read yesterday there is already a 30% increase in still born babies and the background radiation was 1000 times that immediately following the A Bomb hit in WW2 .....  Billions in futile cancer treatments will be reaped along the way.  It really is sureal how little attention it gets.  Hopefully the 'models' predicting it will circulate around the Nothern Hemishere are true for us Southern Hemi's.  It is measurable in Canada so I would be buying a dosimeter and keeping tabs myself ..... can't trust anything you are fed via official channels.

would you really be surprised if it was fake?  I have seen pretty good evidence that it is all an elaborate psy-op.  but, i'm just a tin foil hat guy.

Exactly what is "it" that you think is an psyops? The readings? The meltdown itself? Would appreciate an elaboration. Thanks.

the radiation readings are faked.  many of the photographs of the damaged facility are faked.   no doubt that a wave hit the facility, but the rest of it is a smaller scale 911 type event.  but the radiation is all scare mongering.  there are still a few places on the net where you can find real radiation readings, and they show no issues.   the real tell is the fake pictures of the facility.  if you dig around the net you can find a discussion of this, with old satellite photos of the real fukashima plant, which look nothing like the pics they have been showing on the news (which are replete with alterations anyway).

hardly.  those morons think muslims control the world and that only by saving the state of israel will the U.S. be saved.  mind control anyone?  besides, they are all convinced that the radiation from fukishima will kill us all.  I see it for the bs that it is.

Sorry, CD. That information is on a "need to know" basis, and cleared for release only at the very highest level. Special Psy-Op Unit 2 is a highly-trained and field operation-tested group.

?????  I can contemplate that the quake / tsunami were triggered by HAARP accidently or on purpose and/or  that the Nuclear industry is corrupted and the facilities are sub standard as a result but you can't fake a Globally televised disaster with tens of thousands dead .... You tube and Blogs would be inundated with reports of same by millions of Japanese citizens for starters.

First we will all begin glowing, then many will die horrible deaths.  Then, the Government will raise the acceptable radiation limits and call the ones that do manage to survive crazy and conspiracy theorists.

Go to google, then hit news, then put fukushima into the browser.

The news makes it look like nothing unusual is going on, at all. The silence on this is deafening.

I think US govt should arrest S&P guys and all other rating guys. Rating activity should be prohibited as fraud.

Ratings come from schools. Schools deal with kids and have to make things simplified. In adult life ratng is fraud.

Indeed: on a more serious note, I agree with you. Serius transparent information should suffice to anybody operating in the financial market, non need for ra(n)ting :)

Any adult-life information should be presented in adult language. It cannot be presented as 1-week old's language: AAAA, UUAAA. How come these "babies" are allowed to damage people's life? RATING IS FRAUD

Nothing to discuss. Just try them for fraud. No cruelty needed. Greece will make a new NO-PASARAN-RATING public holiday. Many other countries will follow.

RATING = FRAUD. Rating has less letters than 2 week old's language. How can anything be described in this language?

I disagree. Your letter is in common language. I understand it and I disagree. If you have said something like UUUAAAA, I would not be able to understand and the react to your message.

Somehow, I get the feeling this downgrade/takedown is deliberate. So who's pulling the plug?

I think S&P try to be honest after all previous mistakes. They honestly (within their baby languge) changed the tune. But the very idea of the RATING IS WRONG.

moat likely, no?  I mean it's not like the S&P all of a sudden decided to do their job.  Market crash, QE3 to the rescue?

JFC. You do know the downgrade came with a big write up and everything? It had charts and graphs and lots of words.

The letter rating is just the short hand.

So it should stay with the many words. Mathematically, it cannot be compressed in 3 letters. Even if you compress your photo with Jpeg you undersatnd you loose quality of the photo. Imagine your photo will be comressed into 3 letters - we will not know if you are male or female :)

So your original point that we should arrest S&P is that although they did release a detailed paper on why they were downgrading the credit worthiness of the US they sum it up in AA+ and that is bad,

Ok I get it, you are a distraction.

Carry on.

I think the fraud is in converting a long text into a short code and presening the code as it has some value or meaning.
