  •  Sound the alarm - corporation needs bailout! (1+ / 0-)

    This wholly predicted and preventable tragedy is the responsibility of TEPCO to pay for, not for other nations or the Japanese government to bail out.  It seems the Free Market rules until someone is "too big to fail," and then the taxpayer steps in to bail them out.   I say not this time.  

    Everyone in the upper tier of TEPCO, but certainly not the  the on-duty plant manager, who defied executives and worked to try to save the doomed reactors deserves to have their bank accounts seized to fund this cleanup.  Then, General Electric needs to be sued for designing such a faulty plant.  Then, every spent fuel pond in the world needs to be emptied and the waste stored in a secure location (probably impossible) while the TEPCO and GE executives work on the site cleanup personally.  

    This "emergency" has been coming since day one of this disaster.  And TEPCO has been lying, spinning and passing the buck all the while, waiting for the bailout so they can walk away.  

    •  Tepco ALREADY passed it on to JPN taxpayers... (2+ / 0-)

      same as the USA - including suppression of REAL DATA regarding this ongoing HORROR SHOW.

      Socialize the losses - privatize the profits.
      We need to STOP the madness of wars for profit and the 1% power shell game... use what is left of our technical knowledge to first STOP these nukes, then CLEAN THEM UP.

      Continued culling of the population (even if called "collateral damage) is NOT an option!
