Japs Built Nuclear Power Station on Exposed Sea Shore

FUKUSHIMA - Japan - In an extraordinary feat of irresponsible engineering and design, the Japanese nuclear power station that has had a major meltdown, was built on an exposed stretch of shore directly in front of the recent tsunami and major fault line.

“We could have built this thing anywhere else, but we decided to just build it right on the beach so that it would be exposed to any danger that came from the sea like tsunamis and storms. Forget about building it on higher ground or inland, we said f*ck it, let’s build a major nuclear facility right next to a fault line,” Ichiko Muyumi, one of the engineers who planned the building of the Tokyo Electric Power station in Fukushima.

“Tora! Tora! Tora!”

In what has been dubbed as Japan’s own Pearl Harbour, the tsunami caused immense devastation, damaging thousands of properties and buildings in a surprise attack that took many off guard.

“The waves were 20 metres high and the water swooped over the buildings taking everything in its path. Huge walls of water came out of nowhere like zeros plunging from the clouds, and caught us completely by surprise,” one of the survivors of the tsunami, Yoriko Jintai, 23, told CNN.

It may have a pleasant sea view but is this responsible building?

If the reactors explode in the nuclear plant, there would be more devastation as the radiation is spread across the atmosphere.

It seems the double blow from mother nature and now the nuclear reactor meltdown is a very sad state of affairs in an already harrowing situation.

“I have to congratulate the chap who thought it would be a great idea to build a nuclear power station exposed to the elements like that. I mean what in hell was this guy thinking?” another glowing in the dark tsunami survivor remarked from a shelter 50 kms from the destroyed town of Sendai.

    Do mean after the Hawaii was devistated by a sneak attack and many many of our brave soldiers were killed by unprovoked attack on our country? Why do we forget the nightmare the japanese brought to the US in WWII. It wasn't that long ago.

    They deserved what they got (Hiroshima, et al.) for attacking the US in WWII. Mess with the bull, you get the horns!

    and what's with that picture on top????????????
    I live in Japan ans was watching every bit of this explosion and it never looked like this atomic-bomb-mushroom-cloud here! It's really bad taste.
    Italian scientists flew in and tested the radioactivity level and it's 5 times LOWER THAN IN ROME. Go figure!!!!!!!!

    Japan earthquake: Japan warned over nuclear plants, WikiLeaks cables show

    I also read that the original engineer for GE who built the plant in 1975 quit because of safwty fears. I can't believe this shit I live in San Diego and we could get this toxic radioactive cloud anythime soon!!

    This is an intersting way to get people to donate and I did donate $100 and i urge you all to donate too.

    If the cloud goes to the USA consider this payback for Hiroshima and Nagasaki

    Consider this for a second: the only thing keeping this from becoming an even worse catastrophe at the moment is precisely the power plant's location. There is no telling what the damage would have been had it been built elsewhere, but at the moment, it's the pumping of sea water to cool the reactors that's keeping them from melting.

    This story is in bad taste.

    Hindsight is 20/20? This could be a real irony if the fallout cloud covers the U.S..
