    One of these girls is going to grow up and run for office and imprison all the liars, thieves and fools who are currently in charge.

    Sometimes it’s the littlest things that bring comfort in devastating times.

    Which liars are those? The ones that obeyed strict building codes that saved thousands of lives? Or the ones that built a nuclear reactor that (for the most part) withstood a FREAKING 9.0 EARTHQUAKE and 35 FOOT TSUNAMI?

    Sure, TEPCO is botching this on a lot of levels, but I’m not sure there is an entire class of liars thieves and fools involved. There are inept bureaucrats and there are engineers who are desperately working to death (literally), but I don’t think I would lump them in with the criminals you seem to be fantasizing about.

      First off, why would you assume that they were calling building code enforcers liars? That doesn’t even make any sense.

      Second, what is your definition of ‘withstood’? Does it mean ‘are leaking radioactive water because of poorly designed cooling systems’? Then yes, they withstood the crap out of that disaster.

        “Does it mean ‘are leaking radioactive water because of poorly-located emergency diesel generators and fuel tanks for the otherwise normally-functioning cooling systems’?”

        There, I fixed that for you… ;-)

        • travtastic says:

          The cooling systems require external energy for the reactor to not asplode, and were not placed on high ground. Fail.
