Japan nuke workers ‘have committed themselves to die if necessary’

http://news.yahoo.com/s/yblog_thelookout/20110401/ts_yblog_thelookout/japan-nuke-workers-have-committed-themselves-to-die-if-necessary

I thought I’d share this news article here. Many people around me have forgotten all about Japan already. I personally think that’s ignorant, not only because it’s still a major tragedy, but because Japan’s situation has the potential to affect the United States as well, as many of Japan’s exports comes to this country.

Still, the strength and collectedness that the people of Japan possess never ceases to amaze me.

Sorry that this post is a bit of a downer.

Until next time.

  1. jesus, that’s some dedication.

    it’s mostly passed though, right? i mean, it’s still insane/suicide to take the job, but for the most part it’s passed, and is getting better.. yeah?

  2. It all depends on what you want to think of passed. The earthquake and tsunami’s have, but there is chances of more partial meltdown’s in the other reactors as well. It doesn’t seem to be doing to well for them, not until they get these meltdowns under control.

    • Mmm, what Kazuki said. It’s a shame that they have to destroy the reactors that they cannot get under control, even after all the exposure the workers got from them in the end.

  3. Wow, just wow. The amount of nerve it must have taken them just to take it in and realize they probably won’t make it out alive either way… I can’t even find words…

    @Misukun: Wow what? Can they really destroy the reactors? I mean, I’d think there would be radiation traces everywhere if they’d just blow the thing to kingdom come but is there really a way to safely destroy them bypassing all the current attempts =O?
    I may be saying something stupid, forgive me if I am, but if that’s so it would seem the most obvious course of action would be: Rescue the workers -> destroy reactors -> safety.

    At any rate, I agree that it would be sad if these workers efforts turned out to be in vain =S

    Wishing the best of luck to Japan.

  4. You would think that there will be people hoarding the supermarket to steal some supplies. Nope, not in Japan. They even reduce the price to help other people in need. What a nation, I dare say.

    • I love that about Japan! They have this sense of loyalty to their countrymen! Sometimes people forget that there is such thing as morals anymore.
