Fukushima apocalypse: Years of ‘duct tape fixes’ could result in ‘millions of deaths’:
http://rt.com/news/fukushima-apocalypse-fuel-removal-598/

'Even the tiniest mistake during an operation to extract over 1,300 fuel rods at the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan could lead to a series of cascading failures with an apocalyptic outcome, fallout researcher Christina Consolo told RT.

Fukushima operator TEPCO wants to extract 400 tons worth of spent fuel rods stored in a pool at the plant’s damaged Reactor No. 4. The removal would have to be done manually from the top store of the damaged building in the radiation-contaminated environment.

In the worst-case scenario, a mishandled rod may go critical, resulting in an above-ground meltdown releasing radioactive fallout with no way to stop it, said Consolo, who is the founder and host of Nuked Radio. But leaving the things as they are is not an option, because statistical risk of a similarly bad outcome increases every day, she said...'

The Top Short-Term Threat to Humanity: The Fuel Pools of Fukushima
Posted on April 7, 2012 by WashingtonsBlog
The Greatest Single Threat to Humanity: Fuel Pool Number 4
http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2012/04/the-largest-short-term-threat-t o-humanity-the-fuel-pools-of-fukushima.html

We noted days after the Japanese earthquake that the biggest threat was from the spent fuel rods in the fuel pool at Fukushima unit number 4, and not from the reactors themselves. See this and this.

We noted in February:

Scientists say that there is a 70% chance of a magnitude 7.0 earthquake hitting Fukushima this year, and a 98% chance within the next 3 years.

Given that nuclear expert Arnie Gundersen says that an earthquake of 7.0 or larger could cause the entire fuel pool structure collapse, it is urgent that everything humanly possible is done to stabilize the structure housing the fuel pools at reactor number 4.

Tepco is doing some construction at the building … it is a race against time under very difficult circumstances, and hopefully Tepco will win.

As AP points out:

The structural integrity of the damaged Unit 4 reactor building has long been a major concern among experts because a collapse of its spent fuel cooling pool could cause a disaster worse than the three reactor meltdowns.

***

Gundersen (who used to build spent fuel pools) explains that there is no protection surrounding the radioactive fuel in the pools. He warns that – if the fuel pools at reactor 4 collapse due to an earthquake – people should get out of Japan, and residents of the West Coast of America and Canada should shut all of their windows and stay inside for a while.

The fuel pool number 4 is apparently not in great shape, and there have already been countless earthquakes near the Fukushima region since the 9.0 earthquake last March.

Germany’s ZDF tv quotes nuclear engineer Yukitero Naka as saying:

If another earthquake occurs then the building [number 4] could collapse and another chain reaction could very likely occur.

(Unit 4 contains plutonium as well as other radioactive wastes.)

Mainchi reported on Monday:

The storage pool in the No. 4 reactor building has a total of 1,535 fuel rods, or 460 tons of nuclear fuel, in it. The 7-story building itself has suffered great damage, with the storage pool barely intact on the building’s third and fourth floors. The roof has been blown away. If the storage pool breaks and runs dry, the nuclear fuel inside will overheat and explode, causing a massive amount of radioactive substances to spread over a wide area. Both the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and French nuclear energy company Areva have warned about this risk.

A report released in February by the Independent Investigation Commission on the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Accident stated that the storage pool of the plant’s No. 4 reactor has clearly been shown to be “the weakest link” in the parallel, chain-reaction crises of the nuclear disaster. The worse-case scenario drawn up by the government includes not only the collapse of the No. 4 reactor pool, but the disintegration of spent fuel rods from all the plant’s other reactors. If this were to happen, residents in the Tokyo metropolitan area would be forced to evacuate.

Former Minister of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism Sumio Mabuchi, who was appointed to the post of then Prime Minister Naoto Kan’s advisor on the nuclear disaster immediately after its outbreak, proposed the injection of concrete from below the No. 4 reactor to the bottom of the storage pool, Chernobyl-style.

a reminder - Wikileaks revealed the IAEA tried to get Fukushima shut down in 2008, three years before the earthquake/tsunami but Tepco and the Japanese government challenged them in the courts and won - un-be-bloomin-lievable

Wikileaks: Tokyo warned in 2008 about earthquake threat to nuclear plants; "pattern of secrecy and denial"
Thanks to Bradley Manning and Wikileaks, we know that Tokyo was warned in 2008 about the earthquake threat to Japan's inadequately designed, aging nuclear plants:


Japan earthquake: Japan warned over nuclear plants, WikiLeaks cables show (The Daily Telegraph, March 15, 2011):
Japan was warned more than two years ago by the international nuclear watchdog that its nuclear power plants were not capable of withstanding powerful earthquakes, leaked diplomatic cables reveal.
An official from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said in December 2008 that safety rules were out of date and strong earthquakes would pose a "serious problem" for nuclear power stations...
Warnings about the safety of nuclear power plants in Japan, one of the most seismologically active countries in the world, were raised during a meeting of the G8's Nuclear Safety and Security Group in Tokyo in 2008.
A US embassy cable obtained by the WikiLeaks website and seen by The Daily Telegraph quoted an unnamed expert who expressed concern that guidance on how to protect nuclear power stations from earthquakes had only been updated three times in the past 35 years.
The document states: "He [the IAEA official] explained that safety guides for seismic safety have only been revised three times in the last 35 years and that the IAEA is now re-examining them.
"Also, the presenter noted recent earthquakes in some cases have exceeded the design basis for some nuclear plants, and that this is a serious problem that is now driving seismic safety work."
The cables also disclose how the Japanese government opposed a court order to shut down another nuclear power plant in western Japan because of concerns it could not withstand powerful earthquakes.
The court ruled that there was a possibility local people might be exposed to radiation if there was an accident at the plant, which was built to out of date specifications and only to withstand a "6.5 magnitude" earthquake. Last Friday's earthquake, 81 miles off the shore of Japan, was a magnitude 9.0 tremor.
However, a cable from March 2006 reported that the court's concerns were not shared by the country's nuclear safety agency.
It says: "Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency believes the reactor is safe and that all safety analyses were appropriately conducted."
The Government successfully overturned the ruling in 2009.

About the scariest thing you'll ever read...

http://my.firedoglake.com/solartopia/2013/09/19/the-crisis-at-fukushim a-4-demands-a-global-take-over/

Quote:

Overall, more than 11,000 fuel assemblies are scattered around the Fukushima site. According to long-time expert and former Department of Energy official Robert Alvarez, there is more than 85 times as much lethal cesium on site as was released at Chernobyl.
...
Spent fuel must somehow be kept under water. It’s clad in zirconium alloy which will spontaneously ignite when exposed to air. Long used in flash bulbs for cameras, zirconium burns with an extremely bright hot flame.

Each uncovered rod emits enough radiation to kill someone standing nearby in a matter of minutes. A conflagration could force all personnel to flee the site and render electronic machinery unworkable.

According to Arnie Gundersen, a nuclear engineer with forty years in an industry for which he once manufactured fuel rods, the ones in the Unit 4 core are bent, damaged and embrittled to the point of crumbling. Cameras have shown troubling quantities of debris in the fuel pool, which itself is damaged.

The engineering and scientific barriers to emptying the Unit Four fuel pool are unique and daunting, says Gundersen. But it must be done to 100% perfection.


or

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/charles-perrow/fukushima-forever_b_39415 89.html

Quote:
...Serious... danger: the spent fuel rod pool at the top of the nuclear plant number four will collapse in a storm or an earthquake, or in a failed attempt to carefully remove each of the 1,535 rods... Conditions in the unit 4 pool, 100 feet from the ground, are perilous, and if any two of the rods touch it could cause a nuclear reaction that would be uncontrollable. The radiation emitted from all these rods, if they are not continually cool and kept separate, would require the evacuation of surrounding areas including Tokyo. Because of the radiation at the site the 6,375 rods in the common storage pool could not be continuously cooled; they would fission and all of humanity will be threatened, for thousands of years.

Fukushima is just the latest episode in a dangerous dance with radiation that has been going on for 68 years. Since the atomic bombing of Nagasaki and Hiroshima in 1945 we have repeatedly let loose plutonium and other radioactive substances on our planet, and authorities have repeatedly denied or trivialized their dangers... Denials and trivialization have continued with Fukushima...

In 1945, shortly after the bombing of two Japanese cities, the New York Times headline read: "Survey Rules Out Nagasaki Dangers"; soon after the 2011 Fukushima disaster it read "Experts Foresee No Detectable Health Impact from Fukushima Radiation." In between these two we had experts reassuring us about the nuclear bomb tests, plutonium plant disasters at Windscale in northern England and Chelyabinsk in the Ural Mountains, and the nuclear power plant accidents at Three Mile Island in the United States and Chernobyl in what is now Ukraine, as well as the normal operation of nuclear power plants.

Initially the U.S. Government denied that low-level radiation... was dangerous... Biologists and other scientists took exception to this, and a 1956 report by the National Academy of Scientists, examining data from Japan and from residents of the Marshall Islands exposed to nuclear test fallout, successfully established that all radiation was harmful...

Besides the uproar about the worldwide fallout from testing nuclear weapons, another problem with nuclear fission soon emerged: a fire in a British plant making plutonium for nuclear weapons sent radioactive material over a large area of Cumbria, resulting in an estimated 240 premature cancer deaths, though the link is still disputed. The event was not made public and no evacuations were ordered. Also kept secret, for over 25 years, was a much larger explosion and fire, also in 1957, at the Chelyabinsk nuclear weapons processing plant in the eastern Ural Mountains of the Soviet Union. One estimate is that 272,000 people were irradiated; lakes and streams were contaminated; 7,500 people were evacuated; and some areas still are uninhabitable. The CIA knew of it immediately, but they too kept it secret. If a plutonium plant could do that much damage it would be a powerful argument for not building nuclear weapons.

Powerful arguments were needed...A Pentagon official... saying in 1953, "The atomic bomb will be accepted far more readily if at the same time atomic energy is being used for constructive ends." The minutes of a National Security Council in 1953 spoke of destroying the taboo associated with nuclear weapons and "dissipating" the feeling that we could not use an A-bomb.

More useful than peaceful nuclear explosions were nuclear power plants, which would produce the plutonium necessary for atomic weapons as well as legitimating them...

Ambiguity was mobilized by the Soviet Union after the 1987 Chernobyl disaster. Medical studies by Russian scientists were suppressed, and doctors were told not to use the designation of leukemia in health reports. Only after a few years had elapsed did any serious studies acknowledge that the radiation was serious... The count of premature deaths has varied widely, ranging from 4,000 in the contaminated areas of Ukraine, Belarus and Russia from UN agencies, while Greenpeace puts it at 200,000. We also have the controversial worldwide estimate of 985,000 from Russian scientists with access to thousands of publications from the affected regions.

Even when nuclear power plants are running normally they are expected to release some radiation, but so little as to be harmless. Numerous studies have now challenged that. When eight U.S. nuclear plants in the U.S. were closed in 1987 they provided the opportunity for a field test. Two years later strontium-90 levels in local milk declined sharply, as did birth defects and death rates of infants within 40 miles of the plants. A 2007 study of all German nuclear power plants saw childhood leukemia for children living less than 3 miles from the plants more than double, but the researchers held that the plants could not cause it because their radiation levels were so low. Similar results were found for a French study, with a similar conclusion; it could not be low-level radiation, though they had no other explanation. A meta-study published in 2007 of 136 reactor sites in seven countries, extended to include children up to age 9, found childhood leukemia increases of 14 percent to 21 percent.
...
University professors have declared that the health effects of Fukushima are "negligible," will cause "close to no deaths," and that much of the damage was "really psychological." Extensive and expensive follow-up on citizens from the Fukushima area, the experts say, is not worth it. There is doubt a direct link will ever be definitively made, one expert said. The head of the U.S. National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements, said: "There's no opportunity for conducting epidemiological studies that have any chance of success....The doses are just too low." We have heard this in 1945, at TMi, at Chernobyl, and for normally running power plants. It is surprising that respected scientists refuse to make another test of such an important null hypothesis: that there are no discernible effects of low-level radiation.


I guess this confirms this conspiracy theory: "Nuclear Power only needed for bombs" http://www.911forum.org.uk/board/viewtopic.php?t=20851&highlight=nucle ar+power

'Radioactive Rainwater Overwhelms Fukishima Nuclear Plant':
http://therealnews.com/t2/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=31 &Itemid=74&jumival=10885


'NOOR: So can we get your reaction to this latest troubling news from the operator of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, saying that this highly radioactive rainwater, which they weren't able to clean up and pump, has again contaminated the surrounding areas?

MAKHIJANI: Yes. So Fukushima has had a problem of contaminated water since the time of the accident in 2011, and not only the water that's needed to cool the molten fuel in the reactors, but also all of the rainwater and storm water and so on that has been getting into the reactors and contacting the fuel and so on. They've got about 1,000 tanks with contaminated water on site. Some of these tanks are leaking. And, of course, the site is contaminated from fallout and leaking water and so on.

The latest problem that you're asking me about arose when there was a typhoon last week, which is a very, very severe storm and dumped an enormous amount of rain. And what that has done is in the areas that are highly contaminated with leaking water that was contained by berms and barriers, that containment basically got overtopped, and now we have quite contaminated water that's flowing onto other parts of the site and into the ocean, contaminated water that's flowing into the ocean every day apart from these severe weather events. So this adds to the contamination...'

And there's another typhoon on the way!

28 Signs That The West Coast Is Being Absolutely Fried With Nuclear Radiation From Fukushima:

http://thetruthwins.com/archives/28-signs-that-the-west-coast-is-being -absolutely-fried-with-nuclear-radiation-from-fukushima

'The map above comes from the Nuclear Emergency Tracking Center. It shows that radiation levels at radiation monitoring stations all over the country are elevated. As you will notice, this is particularly true along the west coast of the United States. Every single day, 300 tons of radioactive water from Fukushima enters the Pacific Ocean. That means that the total amouont of radioactive material released from Fukushima is constantly increasing, and it is steadily building up in our food chain. Ultimately, all of this nuclear radiation will outlive all of us by a very wide margin. They are saying that it could take up to 40 years to clean up the Fukushima disaster, and meanwhile countless innocent people will develop cancer and other health problems as a result of exposure to high levels of nuclear radiation. We are talking about a nuclear disaster that is absolutely unprecedented, and it is constantly getting worse. The following are 28 signs that the west coast of North America is being absolutely fried with nuclear radiation from Fukushima…'

'The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has been caught agreeing in writing to conceal information from the world about the extent of danger, damage and health effects at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant disaster in Japan...'
http://www.turnerradionetwork.com/news/180-mjt

A good source of links is the 'Comments' section of Chris Kresser's Fukushima thread: http://chriskresser.com/fukushima-seafood#comment-140151

As you will see, Kresser's article is rightly being slammed!

SURPRISE: You're Eating Fukushima Radiation and Bloody, Cancerous Tumors in Fish Contaminated By Radiation
http://www.turnerradionetwork.com/news/232-pat

'We've all heard for years that sharks don't get cancer. Well, when they swim around the Pacific Ocean nowadays, the radiation is so terrible that even sharks are getting cancer.

Recently, researchers in Australia noticed a large tumor protruding from the mouth of a great white shark, as well as another mass on the head of a bronze whaler shark. The great white's tumor measured 1 foot (30 centimeters) long and 1 foot wide, according to a study describing the tumors published online in November in the Journal of Fish Diseases.

"This was a very unusual sight as we have never before seen a white shark with tumors," said Rachel Robbins, a study co-author and shark biologist at the Fox Shark Research Foundation, near Adelaide, in southern Australia.

Behold, the first photo in the history of human existence, showing a Great White Shark with a cancerous tumor on its mouth:...'

'Mitsui Oil Tanker 'attacked' in Strait of Hormuz?:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wYF_nXOq3OM



Perhaps Japan should rethink their aquiessence in sending their enriched Plutonium to America. They may yet need it themselves.
Was Fukushima an 'accident', or was it a reply to Japan's support for Palestinians, and offer to Iran to reprocess their nuclear material?

Why on earth should 'Al-CIA-dah' attack a Japanese ship? Oh, yeh, I get it. Laughing

Japanese and British citizens join together in London
to mark 3rd anniversary of the Fukushima nuclear disaster
Remember Fukushima - No to Nuclear Power
Mon 10th, Tue 11th & Sat 15th March 2014

[] Photo: Remember Fukushima - No to Nuclear Power, March to the Parliament, March 2013

Japanese and UK citizens groups are jointly hosting a series of events in London to mark the third anniversary of the Fukushima nuclear disaster during a week when many similar events are taking place throughout the world. See below for the events details.

Fukushima is an ongoing catastrophe. On 11th March 2011, a massive earthquake triggered the triple melt-down of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear reactors. 160,000 people were forced to leave their homes. Many are still living in temporary accommodation with little compensation or support. They face a terrible choice between returning to their heavily contaminated homes and villages or abandoning them in order to stay away from contamination. Radiation has entered the biosphere, which directly affects the food chain. A high incidence rate of thyroid cancer has been identified in Fukushima children.

The stricken reactors continue to pour 400 tons a day of highly radioactive water into the Pacific, with no end in sight. Many parts of the reactor buildings are impossible for humans to enter, due to lethal doses of radioactivity. Already weakened, they are in danger of collapse in any further earthquake. This could cause the spent fuels pool to drain and the fuel rods to catch fire. In the worst case scenario, this would lead to the evacuation of half of Japan.

The vast majority of people in Japan now want nuclear power to be abolished. Despite the strength of anti-nuclear sentiment and the high risk of a further apocalypse, the Japanese government is planning to revive nuclear industry, by restarting several nuclear reactors in Japan and exporting nuclear technology to many countries including the UK.

Remember Fukushima! No to nuclear power! The events will send a clear message to governments and people throughout the world that our future must be sustainable.

Further information on the current state of the Fukushima Daiichi can be found here: ENE NEWS or Simply Info

‘Canadian 10th Grader Discovers Radioactive Imported Seafood Long After Government Stopped Testing’:
http://ecowatch.com/2014/04/01/canadian-10th-grader-radioactive-import ed-seafood/

So US and Canada stopped testing; well, at least they can truthfully say ‘We haven’t found any heightened radiation in seafood’, bit like they said they didn’t find any evidence of controlled demolition in the WTC – of course they didn’t, as they didn’t look for it!

Not new, but it went under our radar:

Peter Daley on the Fukushima Radiation Cloud over Australia & NZ:
http://www.greenplanetfm.com/members/greenradio/blog/VIEW/00000001/000 00193/Peter-Daley-on-the-Fukushima-Radiation-Cloud-over-Australia--NZ. html#00000193

'Peter Daley from Caloundra in Queensland, is the researcher who blew the whistle on the radiation cloud over Australia that then carried on over to the South Island of NZ, passing over Dunedin.

Back on the 8th of January of this year Peter had programed his new high tech geiger counter to sound an alarm if radiation far above background radiation was measured.

The alarm went off at 6.30 pm measuring 0.80 microsieverts, which was eight times over the average level of radiation in the atmosphere and enough for him to stay indoors and close all the windows then call his friends to do the same.

Following this another person in Byron Bay in Northern New South Wales measured this same spike as well as another in Melbourne Victoria.

Then across the Tasman Sea to NZ, another researcher in Dunedin who was involved in nuclear sciences went out with a cloth and wiped all the rain drops off his car that was outside, he then put his geiger counter against the cloth to have it instantly burst forth with a sharp staccato reading. Visual observation saw peaks reach an incredible 1.89 uS/Hr !

So, what is going on here?

From many accounts the inevitable is happening. The nuclear radiation from the crippled Japanese, Fukushima power plant in the Northern Hemisphere has breached the equatorial belt and seeped into the Southern Hemisphere and now this contamination is gradually raining down on us from within the upper atmosphere.

How much, we do not know and it is difficult to find out as Governmental measuring stations and laboratories globally are not letting out any information.

What effect this will have on Nuclear Free NZ is anyones guess. Primarily because there does not appear to be anyone that we know in the public sphere, championing the Nuclear Free issue anymore. It's as if there is a collective dereliction of duty by the crew in this sector of Mothership Earth and they have all gone AWOL.

Yet, the Japanese ambassador to Switzerland has broken ranks with his Government and has taken this to Ban Ki-moon, Secretary General of the UN to ask for the worlds greatest brains to find a solution immediately.

Why? Because things are far worse than what we are being told.

Reactor Number 4 being in a super critical situation.

Question? What are Mums and Dads to do? As children are the most susceptible to radiation, what is their future going to be?

Listen to a very lucid and rational telling of the events leading up to this nightmare.'

Fukushima’s Children are Dying

By Harvey Wasserman
Global Research, June 16, 2014
EcoWatch 14 June 2014
http://www.globalresearch.ca/fukushimas-children-are-dying/5387242

Some 39 months after the multiple explosions at Fukushima, thyroid cancer rates among nearby children have skyrocketed to more than forty times (40x) normal.

More than 48 percent of some 375,000 young people—nearly 200,000 kids—tested by the Fukushima Medical University near the smoldering reactors nowsuffer from pre-cancerous thyroid abnormalities, primarily nodules and cysts. The rate is accelerating.

More than 120 childhood cancers have been indicated where just three would be expected, says Joseph Mangano, executive director of the Radiation and Public Health Project.

The nuclear industry and its apologists continue to deny this public health tragedy. Some have actually asserted that “not one person” has been affected by Fukushima’s massive radiation releases, which for some isotopes exceed Hiroshima by a factor of nearly 30.

More than 48 percent of some 375,000 young people—nearly 200,000 kids—tested by the Fukushima Medical University near the smoldering reactors now suffer from pre-cancerous thyroid abnormalities, primarily nodules and cysts.
More than 48 percent of some 375,000 young people—nearly 200,000 kids—tested by the Fukushima Medical University near the smoldering reactors now suffer from pre-cancerous thyroid abnormalities, primarily nodules and cysts.
But the deadly epidemic at Fukushima is consistent with impacts suffered among children near the 1979 accident at Three Mile Island and the 1986 explosion at Chernobyl, as well as findings at other commercial reactors.

The likelihood that atomic power could cause such epidemics has been confirmed by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, which says that “an increase in the risk of childhood thyroid cancer” would accompany a reactor disaster.

In evaluating the prospects of new reactor construction in Canada, the Commission says the rate “would rise by 0.3 percent at a distance of 12 kilometers” from the accident. But that assumes the distribution of protective potassium iodide pills and a successful emergency evacuation, neither of which happened at Three Mile Island, Chernobyl or Fukushima.

The numbers have been analyzed by Mangano. He has studied the impacts of reactor-created radiation on human health since the 1980s, beginning his work with the legendary radiologist Dr. Ernest Sternglass and statistician Jay Gould.

Speaking on www.prn.fm’s Green Power & Wellness Show, Mangano also confirms that the general health among downwind human populations improves when atomic reactors are shut down, and goes into decline when they open or re-open.



Nearby children are not the only casualties at Fukushima. Plant operator Masao Yoshida has died at age 58 of esophogeal cancer. Masao heroically refused to abandon Fukushima at the worst of the crisis, probably saving millions of lives. Workers at the site who are employed by independent contractors—many dominated by organized crime—are often not being monitored for radiation exposure at all. Public anger is rising over government plans to force families—many with small children—back into the heavily contaminated region around the plant.

Following its 1979 accident, Three Mile Island’s owners denied the reactor had melted. But a robotic camera later confirmed otherwise.

The state of Pennsylvania mysteriously killed its tumor registry, then said there was “no evidence” that anyone had been killed.

But a wide range of independent studies confirm heightened infant death rates and excessive cancers among the general population. Excessive death, mutation and disease rates among local animals were confirmed by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture and local journalists.

In the 1980s federal Judge Sylvia Rambo blocked a class action suit by some 2,400 central Pennsylvania downwinders, claiming not enough radiation had escaped to harm anyone. But after 35 years, no one knows how much radiation escaped or where it went. Three Mile Island’s owners have quietly paid millions to downwind victims in exchange for gag orders.

At Chernobyl, a compendium of more than 5,000 studies has yielded an estimated death toll of more than 1,000,000 people.

The radiation effects on youngsters in downwind Belarus and Ukraine have been horrific. According to Mangano, some 80 percent of the “Children of Chernobyl” born downwind since the accident have been harmed by a wide range of impacts ranging from birth defects and thyroid cancer to long-term heart, respiratory and mental illnesses. The findings mean that just one in five young downwinders can be termed healthy.

Physicians for Social Responsibility and the German chapter of the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War have warned of parallel problems near Fukushima.

The United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR) has recently issued reports downplaying the disaster’s human impacts. UNSCEAR is interlocked with the United Nations’ International Atomic Energy Agency, whose mandate is to promote atomic power. The IAEA has a long-term controlling gag order on UN findings about reactor health impacts. For decades UNSCEAR and the World Health Organization have run protective cover for the nuclear industry’s widespread health impacts. Fukushima has proven no exception.

In response, Physicians for Social Responsibility and the German International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War have issued a ten-point rebuttal, warning the public of the UN’s compromised credibility. The disaster is “ongoing” say the groups, and must be monitored for decades. “Things could have turned for the worse” if winds had been blowing toward Tokyo rather than out to sea (and towards America).

There is on-going risk from irradiated produce, and among site workers whose doses and health impacts are not being monitored. Current dose estimates among workers as well as downwinders are unreliable, and special notice must be taken of radiation’s severe impacts on the human embryo.

UNSCEAR’s studies on background radiation are also “misleading,” say the groups, and there must be further study of genetic radiation effects as well as “non-cancer diseases.” The UN assertion that “no discernible radiation-related health effects are expected among exposed members” is “cynical,” say the groups. They add that things were made worse by the official refusal to distribute potassium iodide, which might have protected the public from thyroid impacts from massive releases of radioactive I-131.

Overall, the horrific news from Fukushima can only get worse. Radiation from three lost cores is still being carried into the Pacific. Management of spent fuel rods in pools suspended in the air and scattered around the site remains fraught with danger.

The pro-nuclear Shinzo Abe regime wants to reopen Japan’s remaining 48 reactors. It has pushed hard for families who fled the disaster to re-occupy irradiated homes and villages.

But Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and the plague of death and disease now surfacing near Fukushima make it all too clear that the human cost of such decisions continues to escalate—with our children suffering first and worst.

It looks very much as though the nuclear proctologist Dana Durford has been lying about what he sees, here is a sarcastic video from a local at Half Moon Bay, about all the zombie life looking much the same as usual, prolific.

http://youtu.be/qWhgi5VLJ_w

Of course Fukushima remains the greatest industrial accident of all time, and this scam plays into the hands of the nuclear lobby. A lot of people are very cross. Many were taken in, and I am very sorry to have brought that deceit into this forum.

ConnectingDots3 gives more insight into the scam here

I'm so glad it's a scam. Thank God there is more time .

In your opinion what is the wifi blocker jammer used for? Do you have a basic understanding of the knowledge about it? If you want to know more about it, then you can stop your step then you will get the information and the knowledge you want.

Fukushima Radiation Nearing West Coast:
http://ecowatch.com/2014/10/23/fukushima-radiation-west-coast/?

Watch the short video. Apparently Japan only allows 100 beq. per kilo of food, above that it is not fit for human consumption. But they CAN export it to the States, who allow 1,200 beq. per kilo!

Yes, very interesting indeed! I have reposted it on the HAARP thread, as it is highly relevant there too:
http://www.911forum.org.uk/board/viewtopic.php?t=20346&start=60


Here is the extremely interesting 'Source' linked to above; I'm putting it in, because it is too important to risk people not following it up:

'Reagan approved sabotage to wreck Soviet economy':
http://www.theage.com.au/articles/2004/02/27/1077676960916.html

By David Hoffman
Washington
February 28, 2004


'In 1982, US president Ronald Reagan approved a CIA plan to sabotage the Soviet Union's economy through covert transfers of technology that contained hidden malfunctions, including software that later triggered a huge explosion in a gas pipeline, according to a former White House official.

Thomas Reed, a former Air Force secretary and member of the National Security Council, describes the episode in a book, At the Abyss: An Insider's History of the Cold War, to be published next month.

Reed writes that the Siberia pipeline explosion was just one example of "cold-eyed economic warfare" against the Soviet Union that the CIA carried out under director William Casey during the final years of the Cold War.

At the time, the US was attempting to block Western Europe from importing Soviet natural gas. There were also signs that the Soviets were trying to steal a wide variety of Western technology. Then, a KGB insider revealed the specific shopping list and the CIA slipped the flawed software to the Soviets in a way they would not detect it.

"In order to disrupt the Soviet gas supply, its hard currency earnings from the West, and the internal Russian economy, the pipeline software that was to run the pumps, turbines, and valves was programmed to go haywire, after a decent interval, to reset pump speeds and valve settings to produce pressures far beyond those acceptable to pipeline joints and welds," Reed writes.

"The result was the most monumental non-nuclear explosion and fire ever seen from space." US satellites picked up the explosion.

"While there were no physical casualties from the pipeline explosion, there was significant damage to the Soviet economy."

Reed said he obtained CIA approval to publish details about the operation. The CIA learned of the full extent of the KGB's pursuit of Western technology in an intelligence operation known as the Farewell Dossier. Portions of the operation were disclosed in a 1996 paper by Gus Weiss, a technology and intelligence expert who was instrumental in devising the plan to send the flawed materials.

According to the Weiss article and Reed's book, the Soviet authorities in 1970 set up a new KGB section, known as Directorate T, to plumb Western research and development for badly needed technology. Directorate T's spies often operated in Soviet delegations to the United States; on one visit to a Boeing plant "a Soviet guest applied adhesive to his shoes to obtain metal samples", Weiss recalled in his article.

Then, at a July 1981 economic summit in Canada, president Francois Mitterrand of France told Mr Reagan that French intelligence had obtained the services of an agent they dubbed "Farewell", Colonel Vladimir Vetrov, a 53-year-old engineer who was assigned to evaluate the intelligence collected by Directorate T.

Vetrov, who Weiss recalled had provided his services for ideological reasons, photographed and supplied the CIA with 4000 documents on the program. The documents showed how the Soviets were carrying out a broad-based effort to steal Western technology.

"Reading the material caused my worst nightmares to come true," Weiss recalled. The documents showed the Soviets had stolen valuable data. "Our science was supporting their national defence."

The Farewell Dossier included a shopping list of Soviet priorities. In January 1982, Weiss said he proposed to Casey a program to slip the Soviets technology that would work for a while, then fail.

The sabotage of the gas pipeline has not been previously disclosed, and at the time was a closely guarded secret.

The role that Reagan and the US played in the collapse of the Soviet Union is still a matter of debate. Some argue that US policy was the key factor; others say that internal Soviet factors were more important, including economic decline and President Mikhail Gorbachev's revolutionary policies of glasnost and perestroika.'

Regarding 'illegal' sales of material to Russia (and China and elsewhere, including Iran):
'Illegal Arms Bazaar: At Redstone Arsenal USA':
http://www.solomonstemple.com/2004/01/illegal-arms-redstone-arsenal/

By US Col. Al Martin (retired)

In recent days, the FBI has become very concerned about leaks, which have been exposing the illegal activities of the illegal arms dealers at Redstone Arsenal. The Bureau has committed fresh resources to uncover the individuals who are leaking information to the Al Martin Raw website about continuing frauds at the US Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama. One of the sources, the Friendly Colonel, believes he may be in danger, since it is always dangerous to uncover fraud and malfeasance and to tell the truth about government, especially when it relates to government wrongdoing.

In an update on the “Marshmallow Story,” the illegal sale of anti-personnel explosive devices to illegal Chinese arms dealers it seems that the transactions of “Mr. Murphy” (an alias for a Chinese arms merchant) are going along well. “Mr. Murphy” has now rented enormous storage facilities near the Redstone Arsenal for his ” marshmallows” pending the June 15 shipping date. The Friendly Colonel had no idea of the quantity of marshmallows he bought. By the time the purchase order is fulfilled, he said that three ships will be needed to transport them to Mexico. The first delivery took up three of the biggest warehouses that were available, ordinarily used by heavy equipment operator/ contractors to store equipment. He was surprised at the enormous quantity.

One of the topics of discussion at the weekly meeting/dinner was the increased nervousness because everyone realizes there’s a leak, and the FBI is making everyone more nervous because of their investigations. Apparently (although it’s not identified), there is one or more investigative committees from congress which are getting closer and closer.

The general in charge announced that there is going to be “Officers’ Target Practice” this week in the event they’re going to have to shoot some “hostiles.”

The “hostiles” that the general is referring to are investigators.

There were also many comments on the failure of the test of the new VMX43 aircraft, which was a loss of $185 million to the taxpayers.

The general actually laughed and said, “$185 million? We defraud the American taxpayers more than that every year in food and booze.”

The VMX43 project was a collaboration between defense contractors. The general thought these guys that built this thing “must be pikers if they can’t figure out how to defraud the people out of more than that.” These wise cracks just come out of them. They don’t care who hears it. They really believe they’re impervious. They really think that they’re invincible and even bullet-proof.

They are however “concerned” about the “public safety” of what they’re doing. You must remember that everything that is being done at these arms sales is illegal. The weapons sales are themselves illegal. The people buying them are illegal arms dealers. They’re being illegally sold and transported illegally to other countries. Every step of the way is illegal.

People need to be reminded that even though they think these activities at Redstone Arsenal appears to be “business as usual,” that every step in the process is an illegal act.

This is a public safety issue. All of these highly explosive “marshmallows” (very volatile anti-personnel devices) are being shipped in cardboard banker’s boxes stuffed with newspapers. They are transported by ordinary rent-a-truck companies.

“Mr. Murphy” thought this would be the cheapest way to do it. The boxes are all sealed up and marked “educational materials.” As has been mentioned before, if just one of these five-ton capacity trucks loaded with these “marshmallows” were to explode, it would be a simultaneous explosion. It is enough explosive power to flatten several city blocks. These weapons are being transported without any license and without any permits because they are illegally marked in a regular rental truck with no precautions at all. And they are being driven through high-density civilian areas.

What they’ve always been concerned about is a major accident in which a lot of civilians get killed. All the illegal weapons being illegally shipped out of Redstone Arsenal include both conventional and non-conventional munitions. Most are being shipped over the road, and since it’s illegal, and since they’re all being mislabeled as something other than weapons, no precautions are being taken whatsoever.

In addition, the weapons which leave illegally via air are transported by aircraft whose safety is considered marginal at best. These aircraft are afflicted with the same problems that the Department of Defense has with all its aircraft. The Spare Parts Scams (cannibalizing parts from one to another) have depleted the inventory of serviceable aircraft. Weapons are being flown over high-density population areas in rickety old aircraft. And they are absolutely scared that a major accident might happen, an accident which could take out five to ten city blocks of some big city.

The problem with the congressional investigating committees is that they are typically do-nothing affairs. In fact, the problem for whistle-blowers remains – where do you go to report this fraud? Do you go to the do-nothing committees?

Dear reader, vest no hope in exposure by congressional investigating committees whose members oftentimes have a conflict of interest in exposing the truth because they have some political or financial reason to keep the truth from the people and to hide and suppress the truth.

So what’s a poor citizen to do? Take Prozac .

But seriously

And this is the irony of how dangerous it is to tell the truth about government — congressional committees will do nothing because of their individual members’ conflict of financial interests. Often they have direct political or personal financial interest in making sure that certain fraud connected to certain military contractors is not uncovered.

The Department of Defense Inspector General is also quite useless. All they do is write a report which gets filed and no one ever sees it. They write a report. It goes through the Department of Defense and nobody ever does anything with it. Then it goes to all the congressional committees, which also do absolutely nothing with it. Then the report goes to the media, and then maybe one or two media outlets will actually do something with it, maybe publicize the Inspector General’s report about this problem, or that fraud, or that deficiency, But then nothing is ever done about it.

It should be noted for the record that the general at Redstone has a habit of calling the American people “fodder.”

He uses the term “hostiles” to describe congressional investigators and “fodder” to describe the American people. The general typically uses these “Bushonian” words which Jeb used to use all the time. Oliver North used these terms as well. It was common jargon used by this clique.

But the public safety issue of transporting illegal weapons from the Redstone Arsenal should be a primary concern to the American people. The weapons, for example, mentioned in the Al Martin Raw article about the V22 Osprey, were all chemical weapons that were undoubtedly leaving US shores. Had one of those aircraft exploded in the air over a populated area, five million people would have been killed.

This is a volatile topic — loading illicit chemical weapons on an aircraft (the Osprey V22) whose safety record is marginal at best. It’s a potential catastrophe just waiting to happen since the government has been doing this for years — with no regard for public safety.

The Friendly Colonel has expressed concern that the investigation may eventually lead to him. Regarding the Friendly Colonel — the FBI doesn’t know who he is and what frustrates them even more is that they don’t even know which colonel he is in whose army.

“Mr. Murphy,” the Chinese arms merchant, has a partner who’s a retired general in the German army. He thinks the Friendly Colonel is in the Israeli Army. A Russian general is under the impression that he’s a colonel in the South African Army. What is continually amazing is that no one knows who anyone is at these arms bazaar meetings. They just figure if you’re there, you belong

Everyone is known by rank, but it’s very confusing. The Germans show up in US uniforms. The Russians show up in Pakistani uniforms. Nobody knows who anyone is. Or what armed service they’re actually affiliated with.

And this is the global arms bazaar. And it is very bizarre indeed.

The lengths they go to hide their identity is amazing. But they all insist on using their real rank – but you never know which army they’re from. The FBI knows that some of the leaks are coming from the Friendly Colonel, but they don’t know who the Friendly Colonel is. Or what nationality he belongs to. Or what army he is in. Or what army he claims to be in.

The hilarity of the situation is that these meetings have absolutely no security. This is a US military arsenal where classified weapons systems are bought and sold illegally on what is supposed to be one of the most highly secure military facilities in the country, namely Redstone Arsenal. And yet foreign military officers are allowed to enter by presenting identification which is false. And the general and all his people know it’s false. The general himself doesn’t know who half the people are.

I mean, you could say you’re with the “Fourth Mongolian Light Brigade” and you’d get on the base.

The security lists at the base don’t make any sense and don’t correspond to any of the people who are there. There’s always a bunch of Arabs around with obviously fake names like “Colonel Goldberg.” And the Chinese are always Major this or Colonel that of the “Fourth Mongolian Space Defense Force.” It’s absolutely hilarious. And the FBI can’t figure out who anyone really is.

They all make up names — even military divisions. They even make up whole armies sometimes. And then they show up in military uniforms of countries, which don’t correspond to the lie they told the first time. It is such a state of confusion that no one really knows who anyone else really is.

This will most likely be the last article in this ongoing series on “Fraud at the Redstone Arsenal.” As always, though, the Al Martin Raw Website will provide continuing updates, as information becomes available.

And rest assured — the Al Martin Raw Website will not rest until the Whole Truth is told.

“Mr. Murphy,” the Chinese arms merchant, is working as an agent for a Taiwan-based company called Samitron Corporation. It is on Samitron’s behalf that he is dealing in the anti-personnel weapons called “marshmallows.” (See previous column “Those Wacky Arms Dealers” ) It should be noted that Samitron is the largest manufacturer of toilet paper in Taiwan. So in essence, you have a toilet paper company dealing in illicit “marshmallows.” Samitron Corporation, a Taiwan company, is actually controlled by the People’s Republic of China, and it has been often used as a front for illicit weapons transactions.

This information was revealed by Mr. Murphy’s driver, a 7 ft. tall black guy named Jonesy, who drives Mr. Murphy around in a black Cadillac limo. Mr. Murphy is 4 ft. 9 in. tall and wears elevator shoes. He speaks in a broken Chinese Pidgin-English.

Besides driving, Jonesy acts as a bodyguard, but Jonesy doesn’t speak English either. All he speaks is Jive, but he can interpret what Mr. Murphy is saying. So you talk with Jonesy and he translates Mr. Murphy’s Chinese Pidgin-English into Jive. Then you have to find someone who talks Jive to finally understand what’s being said.

So when they keep trying to make arrangements for trucking the “marshmallows” out of Huntsville, they talk about Penske (as in Penske Trucking) and Mr. Murphy calls it “Renske”. He actually thinks these are different companies. Mr. Murphy has heard of U Haul and Penske, but the way he pronounces them, he thinks that “Ru Raul” is different than U Haul and “Renske” is different than Penske.

When the Friendly Colonel finally asked Mr. Murphy what business Samitron was in, Mr. Murphy answers, “Roilet Raper.” So he asked Jonesy what he said and Jonesy replies, “Yo, man, That’s toilet paper, man.” Maybe someone could sell it as a software application – a translation of Chinese Pidgin English and Jive.

It has also been revealed that Mr. Murphy’s partner is a German arms dealer who works for Siemens. All the other Huntsville arms dealers and the FBI agents call him “Heinz the Hun.” In fact, that’s what he calls himself.

Mr. Murphy’s five-ton cargo of “marshmallows” has finally left Huntsville and is being trucked to Decatur, Alabama on the Mississippi River. Then these illegal weapons will be transported by barge to New Orleans.

Evidently Penske Trucking didn’t want to transport the stuff once they found out what it was. One of the cardboard bankers’ boxes, which contained the “marshmallows,” was opened and the man in charge, who happened to be a former Army munitions guy, knew immediately what it was. He said, “We ain’t touching it.”

So they had to look around and find someone who would do it with no questions asked.

They finally found a tiny company in Madison, Alabama. It’s a small one stop-light town, the next town over from Huntsville. The company is called Towelhead Trucking.

I swear to God, I didn’t make this up. It’s run by these two Iranian guys who don’t have any papers. They have a 1967 GMC five-ton truck that’s rusty and all banged up. And on the door, it’s got partially obscured in worn-off paint “Towelhead Trucking.”

They hardly speak any English. They’re apparently undocumented Iranian aliens, who don’t even have drivers’ licenses. And they told him, “We don’t give a * what you have in there. You pay us. We drive it.”

At this weekend’s auction, Mr. Murphy and Heinz the Hun will be bidding on an illegal missile system which will be transported to Tsing Hua. This is apparently an experimental missile system the United States worked on. They claimed they couldn’t get it to work, but in fact it had already been perfected. If they claimed that they had gotten it to work, it would have violated the ABM Treaty. It was secretly finished but couldn’t be deployed without violating the treaty, so the $16 billion of covert money that was spent on it was washed out and the missile system just sits in a warehouse marked “Used.” They expect be able to buy it for $3 million.

What a deal! It cost US taxpayers $16 billion to make it and illegal arms dealers will walk away with it for $3 million. He said that normally these guys get to buy stuff at one-hundredth of the price that taxpayers have paid. That’s the normal fraction. This is an indication of how widespread the fraud and corruption really is. And nobody cares.

The Friendly Colonel has just attended another one of the Endless Retirement Parties for the FBI Agents Who Never Retire. They’ve been held in limbo because the FBI doesn’t want to let them go – because of what they know. So they just hang around the office all day long, and they have retirement parties, sponsored by different associations of illegal arms merchants.

Mr. Murphy and Heinz the Hun are real chummy with these FBI agents. The Friendly Colonel told them, “You’re supposed to be stopping people like this. What are you doing?”

The FBI agents answered, “Its none of our business. We don’t care — as long as they keep footing the bills for our lobster lunches and Dewars and soda.

One of the FBI agents actually admitted to him, “We know they’re just simply executing an illegal covert policy of our own government. We have our pensions to think about. We have our offshore accounts from years of graft to protect. So we don’t want to step on anybody’s toes. Short of murdering people in this country, we don’t really care what they do.”

One of the FBI agents characterized this lifestyle as having an “Endless Surf and Turf — and a bottle of Chivas Regal that never runs dry.” Courtesy of these illegal arms merchants.

The Friendly Colonel can’t get over it – how bold they are, considering they’re still working for the FBI.

The FBI says they’re technically retired from the FBI, but they’re still drawing a paycheck. One of the FBI agents has a brand new leased Lincoln Towncar from some outfit called Pan Universal Weapons System or something like that.

The fraud is so open. Everybody knows that the American People can’t do anything about it. Congress won’t do anything about it. The media stays away from it by and large so it’s just an open city.

Usually what happens is that Saturday, there’s an auction, and then there’s a luncheon and then there’s a follow-up meeting and luncheon on Sunday and then more meetings. From Friday night until Sunday night – it’s just a continuous gorging yourself on lobster tails and filet mignon and Chivas Regal. It literally goes on for three days. Friday they have the viewing period for the auction.

In a world where nothing is legitimate, how you commit a fraud itself falls into various categories. That’s the difference between a “Cocktail Napkin Fraud” (an off the cuff fraud) and a “Real Fraud.” If you just have invoices printed up with Trans Global Shipping and no address, no phone number, nothing, then it’s called a “Cocktail Napkin Fraud.” But if you incorporate in an offshore jurisdiction, have stationery printed up, get a mail drop and a telex numbers, you could make it a “Legitimate Fraud.”

This Culture of Fraud is such that you have to remember that everything that’s being done is illegal — but nobody thinks of it that way. It’s just different classifications of illegality. If somebody’s running a good fraud, a proper fraud, where all the titles are registered, the names are registered, you might actually start to think that what you’re doing is “legitimate although it’s still illegal.

You could run it as an “off the cuff fraud,” or you could run it as a “legitimate fraud” And when you really think about the word “legitimate” connected with the word “fraud” — this is the culture. I would call it the Culture of Realism. Or the Culture of What It’s All About and the Way Things Really Work.

Over the weekend, Heinz the Hun’s bid on a lot of “mushrooms” was also successful. “Mushrooms” are an arms dealer’s euphemism for a certain type of land mine, which is shaped like a mushroom, hence the term “mushroom.” These are very sophisticated laser actuated land mines. Instead of being pressure sensitive they are laser-sensitive. A field of these mines is set up around a defensive structure or on a roadway. It has a discrete laser system that’s connected to the mines by a low frequency signal. If the laser beam is broken, the land mines are actuated. In other words, when the laser beam triggering system is off, your own troops can walk over them. It’s been fielded in the Balkans, in Serbia, Macedonia, and Kosovo.

The quantity they bought was so large it took six five-ton trucks to move them. The “mushrooms” are all crated up and pre-stamped by the Arsenal as “electric pencil sharpeners.” It’s all for customs purposes, of course.

So Heinz the Hun and his partner Mr. Murphy the Chinaman have hired Trans Global Shipping and Storage to transport the “mushrooms” using the same route that the “marshmallows” took.

But he had to find another trucking company. This one was called the Yahoo Trucking Company – at least that’s what the Friendly Colonel calls it. Their claim to fame is that the owner won the Huntsville, Alabama Long Distance Tobacco Spitting Contest. After meeting the owners of the company in the trailer, which they use as an office, the Friendly Colonel spied the plaque on the wall.

Now everybody’s convinced that the Friendly Colonel is a colonel in the Israeli Army. He adds to this impression by going around saying “Shalom” all the time.

The Friendly Colonel has had a very full weekend. He went to the regular Arsenal lunch on Saturday. Then he went to the lunch on Sunday at the Olive Garden that the arms dealers host for the Perpetually and Never-ending Retiring FBI agents.

The never ending retiring FBI agents are hosted to a never-ending series of lunches and dinners at the Olive Garden with open bar and anything they want, filet mignon, lobster tails, all hosted by the Illegal Arms Dealers Association of Huntsville.

These people, by the way, are the same people that the FBI agents are supposed to be stopping from doing what they’re doing. But these FBI agents have been on the pad all their lives. They don’t know any other way of living.

You have to remember when these guys first went into the FBI, they were as nave as all the others. Then they got this God, Home and Country nonsense shoved down their throats at Quantico. But after they’d been FBI agents for ten years, they figured out the way everything works and the way their own Bureau works. They started to look at things a little differently, a little more realistically.

Guys that can’t change their perspective from what they’re taught at Quantico and convert over to Reality after ten years — they just leave. But guys that stay on for twenty years or so and retire in their fifties like these guys — they’ve already been on the pad for twenty years and they have plenty of money accumulated in their offshore accounts.

You try to tell this to younger FBI agents and they don’t want to believe you. The majority of people in the FBI go through their whole careers being out of the loop. Then they retire and think that everything’s the way it’s supposed to be; and there’s a clear line between black and white; and they retire on their pensions and that’s the end of them.

But, within the FBI, there is what we call the Real People, the people that become “in the loop” and understand that there is no black or white, that it’s all an infinite shade of gray.

The guys who retire from the FBI, who have believed the God, Home and Country stuff all their lives and couldn’t get out of it — consequently they were left out of the loop on purpose. They are the people who retire to the $69,900 condo parks in Arizona. The guys who have been in the loop for the last twenty years of their career – they’re the guys who retire to the half a million-dollar condos in St. Lucia. It’s just the difference between Reality and the Disney Version of the Way Everything Works

And so ends the final update on the Adventures of the Illegal Huntsville Arms Dealers.

The Friendly Colonel reports this weekend’s menu at the Redstone Arsenal was sauted seafood linguini. He was sitting at a table next to a Chinese colonel who was actually attempting to eat his seafood linguini with chopsticks. It caused quite an alarm. The general in charge thought that someone had shot him because he had a big red spot on his white dress shirt.

What happened was that the Friendly Colonel sat next to a group of eight guys who were supposed to be representatives of what is supposedly the most secret military unit in the United States, stationed at the Redstone Arsenal. The code name of this group is “Minus.”

Since he had been telling people that he was in the arms business, they were showing him their wristwatches. They were all wearing matching wristwatches, which were about half of the size of a hockey puck on a wrist strap. He said “you’ve never seen such technology in such a little case.” It was supposed to have 102 functions all in this one item. You can receive coded transmissions from satellite phones. As they were talking, the guy said he was getting an email from a submarine. You can also blow up a building from a distance of two miles with one of these items. The guy was half in the bag and he kept rambling on and on about all the functions for so long that the Friendly Colonel was getting tired of hearing them all. It also has an omni-directional hypersensitive listening device. With this device, he says you can hear what someone is saying in the next room through a wall. He also said “This thing does everything except wipe your ass.”

So what happened is that a mechanism in this device suddenly made a sharp loud noise. Everybody who was there jumped because they didn’t know what it was. The general, who was half in the bag, looked at the Chinese arms merchant who had the marinara sauce all over the front of his shirt – and he thought somebody had shot him.

These guys from the “Minus” group drive around in what they themselves call a “tank-car.” It’s like nothing you can imagine. He said it looks like a cross between a Humvee and a black Cadillac limousine. It’s armor-plated and has 20mm cannons inside and all sorts of other weapons. It also has a remote satellite dish that comes out of the back.

The Minus Group is supposed to be some sort of ultra-secret ready-deployment team. They were kind of vague about what it is that they do, other than they kept talking about “state security” and the security of the state in the event of a crisis. It makes you wonder about the “security” of whose “state.”

The Friendly Colonel added that the announcer this week was a German officer who was dressed in the uniform of an American National Guard. He was parading around in an Alabama State National Guard uniform. Yet he was an officer of the German Army. He spoke very little English, so that nobody could understand what he was saying, except the other German guys who were there. He has said that you never know who anyone is. You see Russian guys wearing Israeli uniforms. You see Israelis wearing German uniforms. Everyone is wearing uniforms other than from their own country.

And now all the Chinese, German and Russian arms dealers are becoming super-paranoid. They’re looking for new routes to ship weapons because of the various ongoing investigations. The media’s looking at it quietly, and it’s making them nervous as hell. They’ve been switching more and more of the shipments from Department of Defense aircraft to civilian contract aircraft. The problem is the lifting capability of the civilian aircraft compared to the military aircraft. Now they’re forced to dismantle equipment and they’re complaining that it adds to the cost. But, of course, all they’re complaining about is illegal. Illegal sales. Illegal weapons systems. Embargoed countries. All illegal. The only thing they’re concerned about is the added cost, and nobody even mentions that everything is illegal.

The Chinese guy that spilled the marinara sauce bought a quantity of these satellite-transmitting, exploding, wristwatch hockey puck devices. It doesn’t have an exact name. It has some sort of designated code. It’s like the Dick Tracy Watch of the 21st Century.

The Friendly Colonel says he’s been offered every type of weapon imaginable if he wants to broker it, yet he doesn’t know anything that they’re talking about. He pretends like he knows and he writes down all the code numbers on the back of napkins. If someone calls him up, he says, “Are you talking about code number such and such?”

By the way, the Chinese arms merchant’s name was “Mr. Murphy.” That was the name on his nametag. And it’s the name he’s officially using in the United States. After the linguini dinner during which he slobbered all over himself, they had a sale, and “Mr. Murphy” bought a large quantity of what are called “Above-Ground, Pressure-Sensitive, Anti-Personnel Mines.” They’re actually nicknamed “Marshmallows.”

The Friendly Colonel watched the Department of Defenses sales and promo videotape they showed at the sale. The last time we used the “marshmallows” was in 1994 in the Balkans. Finally under international pressure, we withdrew them from our inventory because too many people who weren’t supposed to were getting hurt from them.

This is a weapon system that’s dropped in the form of a canister device. It’s a canister filled with these things. The canister drops, breaks apart and these little things are disbursed. They’re about the size of a Skippy peanut butter jar. They fall through the air and they have a slight bullet shape for aerodynamic purposes. After they come out of the canister, a thin tail pops out of them. There are shards of metal on the end. Picture an umbrella that has slits in it and that’s what it looks like. As it spins around, it slows its descent. They land like a helicopter lands without power. In other words, centrifugal force causes the tail rotor to counter-rotor and brakes its descent. These are the most advanced of this type of weapons we have yet developed.

The reason they get their nickname of “marshmallow” by the way is because the exterior is coated with a very soft spongy material. When they hit something, a hard object, like a building, they make absolutely no noise and they won’t make a telltale dent. One of the earlier problems with this weapon system was premature exploding, but now that they have this protective coating, they have a more sophisticated type of detonation system. They’re pressure sensitive. If you touch them, they explode. The promo video showed how powerful these devices are. They’re only about twice the size of a hand grenade. They put the device in the middle of a 50-gallon plastic barrel that was filled with wet sand, then they remote detonated it. The video shows first in slow motion, then in fast motion that there’s nothing left. The sand is completely disbursed and the barrel is completely destroyed. It’s just broken into little pieces of plastic.

This type of weapon system is not new. The Germans used them during World War II and the Germans launched them against Britain. The Chinese guy bought a large quantity of these ultra-sensitive anti-personnel mines. You don’t even have to touch them before they explode. If you simply wave your hand in front of it, it’ll explode. It has a shrapnel effect, which is absolutely devastating. So the Chinese guy who calls himself “Mr. Murphy” bought a large quantity of them.

The Friendly Colonel had jokingly told him that since they had a large problem in the storage and transportation of these weapons, “You might want to consider doing business with my company.” When asked about his company he told him “Trans Global Shipping,” a company which doesn’t exist. He just made it up.

Later “Mr. Murphy” invited him out to lunch. The Friendly Colonel called the local storage center which is called U-Pack-It. He just got their rates, multiplied it by three, and told the price to the Chinese guy. Then he drove him past the place and said, “These are my company’s special storage units.” And the guy believed him. Then when he was on the phone, he was asked what’s it called. He could tell there were some other Chinese guys in the background.

“It’s called U-Pack-It,” he told him. The Chinese guy then turned around and said, “oynga magouynga chopsuey fooey louey Upackit Upackit.” And the other Chinese guys said, “Ah so. U pack it U pack it.” They sounded like a bunch of parakeets “U packit U packit.” So the Friendly Colonel’s going to do business with them. He’ll make about thirty grand for a few weeks of storage. The Chinese guy told him that he thought the rates were “very reasonable.”

Then he told the Friendly Colonel he’s having this stuff trans-shipped first through Mexico, then through Costa Rica, then to Ecuador. But the final destination is Tsing Hua University of Taiwan. That’s the ultimate destination of these anti-personnel devices. He got a waiver through customs and they’re being shipped as “educational materials.”

He wouldn’t tell him where they’re going from there. This arms merchant might not be from the People Republic of China. He might actually be a Taiwanese arms merchant and Taiwan might actually be the end recipient of the marshmallows, but he couldn’t be certain.

What happens at Redstone is that this officer in charge of customs is getting invited into frauds himself, but he’s not receiving money under the table. It seems to be directed from higher-up. It’s a directive from higher up, and it’s all part of the covert and illegal rearming of China.

In other news, one of the Senate investigating committees has gotten a batch of documents from one of the nearly retired FBI agents. While the committee thought that up to 35% of helicopters were serviceable, it turns out that internal Department of Defense records show that in the entire inventory of helicopters within the US defense command structure (including all helicopters — assault helicopters, rescue helicopters, surveillance helicopters, fire control helicopters), only one in five is serviceable at any given time. Only 20% of the helicopters can be put into operation.

The reason these helicopters don’t work is because the spare parts don’t work. And the reason that the spare parts don’t work is because the majority of the spare parts for these sophisticated helicopter weapons systems are made by Chinese controlled companies. They are subcontracted out to Chinese-controlled dummy corporations which in turn will retain an American retired colonel, general or admiral to be chairman of the cut-out to make it appear that it isn’t a Chinese cutout — when in fact it is.

The Chinese make these spare parts and one of the Friendly Colonel’s friends said that half of the spare parts are the wrong size and the connections are backwards and they don’t work. They believe that this is an undeclared warfare against the United States.

It’s always been assumed that the Chinese are simply incompetent and can’t make these spare parts correctly, but by now the US has given them so much technology (military and high tech manufacturing technology) that they can’t be so incompetent any more.

Also it has been pointed out that this is a superb cover to transfer more military technology to the Chinese.

If you give them the schematics to build all the parts of the systems, then they have the ability to put the weapon system together without giving them the schematics of the system itself. Corroborating Al Martin Raw sources, the just released GAO Report concerning defense readiness reports that within the US military inventory, defective spare parts are at all-time high. There is also a report that military repair and service units have to cannibalize operating weapons systems that actually work. It is increasingly affecting military readiness. Some Air force and Army units report only a 20% effective readiness status due to the number of weapons systems that don’t work because of the defective spare parts.

Part of the Associated Press report on this topic claims that GAO commented that a certain series of news articles on a certain internet news service website had come to GAO attention in recent weeks. Because of this series of articles, the report continues, the GAO is now launching a new investigation into suspected fraud in spare parts procurement at the Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama. (See “Fraud for Lunch”).

In an on-site report, the Friendly Colonel says that Department of Defense standards for testing components are an absolute joke. “Testing” consists of components being put on a machine that looks like it was made in the 1970s. It sends an electrical charge through it and “if the red light don’t go off, they say OK it’s good.”

The sergeant major in charge was there and he had chewing tobacco stains around his mouth. He was there with his subordinates. They stuck a bunch of wires and connectors on a thing which went into a big blue box that looked like it was made in about 1973. When asked “How do you know if the parts any good?” the sergeant major answered, “Well, if that there light on the counter, if it don’t go off, then it’s good.”

And that was the entire testing procedure for the components. If you talk about incompetence, it’s us who are the incompetents. Nobody wants to spend money on sophisticated testing equipment because it’s so much more expensive than it used to be. Also it requires more highly trained people to run testing equipment. Traditionally the Department of Defense testing centers are a dumping ground for all the numbskulls that can’t do anything else. It’s guys who have been there for thirty years and they’re still third sergeant.

The sergeant major knew absolutely nothing about what this machine did. All he knew is that you stuck the part in the slot where it says “Stick part in slot” (it actually has it written there so people will know what to do) and the other end of the machine has an index card scotch taped to it which reads “If red light goes off, part no good.”

Regarding the leaks — the FBI found out it was one of the older guys who leaked out this information about the poor quality of US helicopter systems and the problem with the spare parts, the spare parts being Chinese made, and that it’s just another way to transfer technology to China while maintaining deniability.

Everyone can say, “We never gave the Chinese the schematics to build these.”

But who’s going to ask “But did you give them the schematics to build all the different components that make up this weapons system?”

POSTSCRIPT

The Al Martin Raw website has scored yet another coup when we publicly disclosed the existence of the so-called “tank-car” used by the special military unit based at Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama.

On May 30, CNN claimed that it was the first time that pictures of this vehicle were revealed. They would not show pictures of the exterior, but they did show pictures of the vehicle’s interior.

CNN stated that the vehicle was recently revealed at an army symposium. This vehicle is evidently built by Ford. The Army calls it an “urban assault or urban warfare vehicle,” to be used in urban areas “to fight terrorism” or “to suppress any domestic uprisings.”

The vehicle has many high tech devices. It is armor plated and among its weapons is a laser cannon.'

For the record, Al Martin Raw has once again revealed information before anyone else.

Good News! US Corporations Won't Have to Pay for Nuclear Disasters in India: http://fair.org/blog/2015/01/27/good-news-us-corporations-wont-have-to -pay-for-nuclear-disasters-in-india/

'....You get a much fuller picture from a story in the Mumbai-based newspaper Indian Express (1/26/15), which explains that the problem is with Indian law:

India's Civil Liability for Nuclear Damage Act, 2010, has a simple purpose: to make sure that victims of a nuclear accident can get quick compensation, without having to prove the plant operator was negligent, and irrespective of who was at fault…. Section 17b of CLiNDA says the plant operators…can claim compensation from their equipment suppliers if the accident resulted as a result of "equipment or material with patent or latent defects." And Section 46 makes both suppliers and operators liable to be sued by accident victims.

This is in conflict with the international rules that the US nuclear industry has arranged for itself when marketing its products abroad:


In the US, the law allows victims to file damages claims against operators, suppliers and designers. However, when US firms started selling abroad, they pushed for the concept of legal channeling, which left only operators liable.

These corporations–who have the political backing of the US government–have succeeded in getting international conventions to agree that "no one other than operators can be held responsible" in the event of a nuclear catastrophe. The suppliers want assurances that these international conventions, and not Indian law, will be applied in the wake of such an event.

The "breakthrough" between Obama and Modi seems to be an agreement that the law will be "tweaked" to let US corporations off the hook in case of a devastating accident. For example, suppliers of nuclear equipment could be redefined as "contractors" and therefore not be liable under Indian law.

Of course, if USA Today explained that Obama had gotten the Indian prime minister to find a loophole that would allow US corporations to avoid having to compensate victims of nuclear disasters that they contributed to, that would be harder to present as a "good news!" story.

As a back-up post re Chernobyl 'sabotage', how's about this? I'll highlight the relevant sections:
Russia prepares for war:
http://www.hangthebankers.com/russia-prepares-for-war/

'Russian media has announced the government is preparing for war.

Russia Today reports the country now has a new fortified national defense facility located in Moscow that “would take control of the entire country in case of war.” The cost of the project is estimated at several billion dollars.

“The creation of NDCC [National Defense Control Center] was one of the biggest military projects of the past few years. The closest analogy in the past in terms of functions and tasks was the Commander-in-Chief HQ in 1941-45, which centralized all controls of both the military machine and the economy of the nation in the interests of the war,” Lt. General Mikhail Mizintsev, the NDCC chief, said during an interview.

The National Defense Control Center replaces an old facility that monitored nuclear weapons deployment by the West. It is compared to the U.S. National Military Command Center located deep inside the Pentagon that provides the Joint Chiefs with worldwide situation monitoring and crisis management.

In addition to a number of large war rooms and an underground complex, the facility hosts a state-of-the-art supercomputer, RT reports. Described as “very robust,” the computer network features data encryption and numerous backup sites located around the country that will keep the center functional even if its main facility in Moscow is damaged by an enemy attack or sabotage.

In 2013 Russia reported a Stuxnet attack on one of its nuclear power plants. Stuxnet is malware designed by the United States and Israel and was used to attack Iran’s nuclear program.

The West has accused Russia of launching cyber attacks against NATO, EU ministries and Wall Street. In November, the Department of Homeland Security accused the Russians of inserting trojan horse malware in critical U.S. infrastructure computers. It said the malware “is poised to cause an economic catastrophe,” ABC News reported.

In 2001 the Pentagon declared a cyber attack on U.S. networks would be considered an act of war. The U.S. considers Russia and China as primary adversaries.

Russian president Putin has accused the United States of rekindling the so-called Cold War in the wake of developments in Ukraine. In October he said his country will resist any attack by using all means at its disposal, including the nuclear option.

“The US is now seen in Moscow as irredeemable and determined to destroy Russia, which must resist by reinforcing and rearming its military, investing in technological independence (the so-called import replacement or ‘importozamescheniye’), and by building a world-wide anti-US alliance,” the globalist Jamestown Foundation reports.'

(re Russian allegation of a 'Stuxnet' attack on one of it's nuclear plants:
Russian nuclear power plant infected by Stuxnet malware says cyber-security expert:
http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/news/russian- nuclear-power-plant-infected-by-stuxnet-malware-says-cybersecurity-exp ert-8935529.html )



This actually gives 'us' a big opportunity, if you think about it (as well as big-time worries, which we already have anyway, like WWIII, which Webster Tarpley has been forecasting for yonks). I won't say what that 'big opportunity' is, at present, for tactical reasons, but I will revisit this area before too long.

Comment from a guy on Chris Kresser site:

There is a new comment on the post "Fukushima Radiation: Is It Still Safe To Eat Fish?".
http://chriskresser.com/fukushima-seafood

Author: Roger Metcalfe
Comment:
Sorry Chris I cannot agree. You need to do more research before posting advice on the safety of Pacific fish. "Let's take back your health" is your byline? As environmental writer I have done months of research and absorbed hours of talks and interviews with such credible sources as nuclear engineers, medical doctors, several world-class radiation and other scientists. How do I determine credibility? I look at the denialists and at the alarmists. I look for rational arguments and a compassionate, caring approach to humanity. "Where does the Truth lie?" I ask. For sadly the truth lies and the cover-up by governments and the multi-trillion $ nuclear industry, is beyond belief. Profiteering has killed any sense of ethics and those who survive will do so through heightened awareness. Fukushima pollution continues to spill into the Pacific even as I write this, but the cover-up continues. When did you last hear anything about this global disaster on mainstream media?
Here are some facts in reply to your comments that's it's safe to eat fish from the Pacific:
1) Look at the radiation map for the USA as posted by the Nuclear Emergency Tracking Centre and notice the elevated levels down the West coast of the USA.
2) Find out why China, South Korea have cancelled the multi-million dollar importation of fish and shellfish from the USA. If you look for the official reason, you will discover "too much bio-toxicity in the fish" (China).
3) Film crews from Independent (not mainstream) Television have taken their cameras onto the beaches of Malibu California and their Geiger counters can be heard to increase the counts per minute as they place it next to a dead fish.
4) Fish have been washed up on the USA West Coast, bleeding through their scales. The USA authorities (EPA etc) say it is a "virus in the fish". Go figure!
5) Photos of a two-headed whale have been revealed on the Internet. Deformities of such fish are being increasingly reported. (Google the 18 000 deformed children in Japan)
6) The natural radioactivity contained by brazil nuts and bananas is miniscule, natural and healthy. It's called hormesis. I've calculated that one would need 20 tons of bananas to equal the radioactivity of one fish from Fukushima waters. This is pure disinformation and malicious when people are dying.
7) The Japanese fishing industry on the East coast has been halted and the government is paying the fishermen not to fish due to the toxicity (radioactivity) of the fish.
I could go on and say much more about airborne pollution but enough said.
Please do more balanced and in-depth research before downplaying this horrific Fukushima disaster which continues to pollute the Pacific ocean to the tune of nearly 400 tons per day.

This guy Roger Metcalfe seems to know his stuff; good info there. I wonder why we haven't heard about this on MSM? Laughing Laughing

US Nuclear Weapons Unaccountable: Israel Behind The Crime:
https://wikispooks.com/iframeDocs/USNuclearWeaponsUnaccountable-Israel   /

'.....One of the countries that received re-sold American plutonium fuel from Israel was Japan. However, the Japanese soon discovered that the plutonium for which they were paying the Israelis top dollar was too old and provided only short-life usable nuclear weapons. Japan decided to go it alone on their nuclear weapons development but not before they planned to blow the whistle on the Israeli and American smuggling operation to the International Atonic Energy Agency (IAEA). Before the Japanese could act, the super-quake struck Japan, along with the devastating tsunami. At that point in time, Israel and the Americans programmed their Stuxnet computer virus to trigger the nuclear catastrophe at Fukushima, the major site for Japan's nuclear weapons development program. Stuxnet, developed to disrupt Iran's nuclear program, is also effective against the nuclear power generation systems of other nations using standard supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) software, including the plutonium MOX fuel processing operations at Fukushima. Stuxnet can be used to blackmail recipients of the smuggled plutonium material, including MOX fuel, into silence. The Fukushima disaster destroyed physical evidence of the Israeli smuggling operation to Japan. However, Japanese intelligence possesses other evidence of the Israeli smuggling operations.

The recent explosion at a MOX fuel plutonium processing facility at the French Marcoule nuclear power plant was a warning to France, courtesy of Stuxnet, not to support Palestine's bid for UN membership. It is not yet clear whether the MOX being used at Marcoule was developed from the unstable and old American plutonium cores smuggled and re-sold by Israel. However, U.S. intelligence has evidence that Israel has re-sold some of its stolen plutonium material to India in return for that nation providing Israel with missile systems and related technology.'

Japan to “drop tanks” full of Fukushima nuclear waste directly into the ocean

Monday, May 08, 2017 by Amy Goodrich
http://fukushimawatch.com/2017-05-08-japan-to-drop-tanks-full-of-fukus hima-nuclear-waste-directly-into-the-ocean.html

Following a major earthquake in March 2011, a 15 meter-high tsunami ravaged the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. Though the reactors immediately shut down after the quake, the giant wave that hit Fukushima’s shores disabled the emergency generators that power and operate the pumps that cool the reactors.

The insufficient cooling resulted in the nuclear meltdown of the cores of three reactors, causing the worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl. A nuclear scientist, Neil Hyatt, has told TRT World, an international news platform of the Turkish Radio and Television Corporation broadcasting from Istanbul and London, that the dismantling and complete cleanup could take up to a hundred years.

Six years after the disaster, the three crippled reactors are still leaking water with high levels of radiation into the Pacific Ocean. Though the Pacific Ocean is a vast stretch of water, Fukushima’s radiation is reaching the coast of the United States, Canada, and Mexico, contaminating the fish we eat and the water we swim in.

While these findings were first considered “fake news” and laughed away, researchers can no longer deny that Cesium-134, the so-called fingerprint of Fukushima, has been found in seawater and fish along the Western Coast of the Americas.

In TRT’s daily news show “Insight,” hosted by former Sky News presenter Martin Stanford, the head of international atomic energy agency has called on the world to help with the cleanup of the Fukushima site. (RELATED: Find more news about the Fukushima disaster at FukushimaWatch.com)
Japan fails to clean up the mess, plotting to discharge nuclear waste into the ocean

Ever since the tsunami put the Fukushima plant out of business, one of the ongoing core tasks has been to cool the reactors and prevent the release of highly contaminated water leaking from the three units. Though it has been six years since the disaster, the cleanup is making slow progress.

Mark Whitby, chairman and design director of the engineering and consultancy firm WME Consultants, explained that today about 400 tons of water go into each reactor to cool it. Part of the highly radioactive water is recycled to re-cool the reactors, and the rest goes into big tanks, which are stacking up at a fast rate. As reported by TRT, Japan is running out of storage space. There are currently about a 1,000 storage tanks holding 920,000 tons of contaminated water.

As if the marine life isn’t struggling enough already by the vast amounts of plastic in the oceans, the Japanese are now talking about dumping these tanks with nuclear wastewater directly into the sea because they cannot keep building and storing these reservoirs, Whitby told TRT.

Also, to this day researchers are uncertain whether the melted cores are still within the containment structures or if they have burrowed through the vessels, contaminating the groundwater that ends up in the Pacific Ocean. Since many robots, sent out to assess the damage, have been destroyed due to the high levels of radiation that melts their electronics, it is tough to get this information.

Recently, however, one camera lasted long enough to show that molten core debris has burned through the bottom of the inner reactor wall. The radioactive debris is now burrowed deep into the foundations of the reactor, causing the highest radiation levels measured around the reactor since the triple core meltdown six years ago. Until these cores can be retrieved, the reactors will keep leaking radioactive material into the groundwater.

According to Japan’s former prime minister, the current Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is lying about the situation being under control. Abe has also been criticized for forcing more than 6,000 people to return to their home in areas that are still highly contaminated zones.

According to the Japanese government, Japan will be safe by 2020. Therefore, it will hold the Olympic baseball and softball in the Fukushima area to show “Japan is cool,” even if their reactors are still posing a serious threat.
