A video letter to the people of Yemen from Anonymous.
The Fukushima nuclear crisis has been brought on by the lies and deceit from the entire nuclear industry, primarily blame can be laid on the Japanese Government and the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO). Problems were immediate at the TEPCO Daiichi plant right from the time of the earthquake (Friday, March 11, 2011 at 05:46:23 UTC) and forward. Within minutes a 7.3+meter tsunami swamped the plant and killed the backup power supply rendering the plant dead. It was 24hours before the world started to get any idea that a catastrophe was in the making. Approximately 72 hours after the earthquake TEPCO abandoned the plant. Today (about 12hours ago) they attempted to douse the meltdown with helicopter drops of water. The helicopter drops were for the cameras, it was a pathetic attempt to douse a nuclear meltdown with water. I have seen firefighters in the Rocky Mountains risk more and try harder to put out a forest fire, the Japanese effort was nothing short of feeble. The incompetence and obfuscation of responsibility continued with a half hearted attempt to send in the Tokyo metro riot police with their water cannon. This failed because the area is to radioactive and simply not approachable. To further underscore the problem with the Fukushima Daiichi plant the US 7th fleet who’s nuclear powered aircraft carrier has experts and nuclear safety suits left the area after some crew were exposed. So, it appears Japan has quit in its incompetent effort to squelch any further meltdown and is asking for support from elsewhere in the world to come and save them from their own undoing. The longer these several reactors smoulder it is going to get worse. Humanity is left with no option other than to ask people to sacrifice themselves to control the nuclear fuels. To me it is straight forward, gather the executives of TEPCO (and any other pro-nuke shill) and make them clean this up today at any cost.
Update: 0400 3/17/2011
Beginning at (0500utc) 2:00pm Japan Local Time water pump trucks from the local area airport authorities and fire departments will lend there best hardware, skill and ultimately their lives to pump water on the Fukushima Daiichi Reactors and fuel ponds. This watering effort is timed with the TEPCO effort to get a 6.7kva power cable to the facility.
Update 1730 utc 3/19/2011
Electrical cable has been connected to Diaichi reactor #1 and #2. The Tokyo Fire Department is preparing a massive water delivery to the spent fuel rod pools. Tokyo Fire Department workers interviewed who were at the Daiichi nuclear plant were exhausted. High radiation exposure likely. TEPCO electrical workers are active in restoring power to the Daiichi power plant.

I have received a negative comment by assessing blame on TEPCO and the Japanese government. Yes, blame. It is called the ‘normalcy bias’, when one may say, “I never expected that to happen”, when the unexpected happens. In this case TEPCO and the Japanese governments know that within the life span of a nuclear power plant it will be subjected to extreme conditions. They build these plants next to the ocean in the most highly active geological zone on Earth. The nuclear fuel itself has a half-life measured in 10,000’s of years. The syndicates who build nuclear power plants know that 9.0 earthquake is likely over of time, thus the likelihood of a great tsunami is equally great. There is no excuse, these large scale seismic events are a constant on Earth. Better planning and better preparedness is necessary because there will be another large earthquake on the Pacific ring of fire. The normalcy bias regarding earthquakes, weather and other such Geo changes can never be an excuse for a highly engineered, complex and expensive technology. Those involved in engineering nuclear power plants must expect the worse case scenario over the life span of a nuclear power plant, no excuses. Now, I would like to find out if solar, wind and geothermal combined can compete with nuclear power? Has anyone calculated the long term cost of the Fukushima partial meltdown that still smolders? How many square kilometers are abandoned Fukushima prefecture? How much wind, solar power and geothermal power could be created in the abandoned radioactive land in the Fukushima Prefecture? How many more nuclear disasters does the world need to understand that nuclear power is old and unnecessary technology? Lastly, if you want your comment published on my blog, which I would like to do, do not start and end by insulting me. Just make your point and have a discourse. Thanks.
The permit has been obtained for the rally in Quantico, Va. for March 20, 2011. The Bradley Manning support network will be there as well as a solid contingent of ‘anonymous’ supporter will attend the rally. The Pentagon has shown its nervousness over this by asking the FBI for assistance investigating a perceived threat from Anonymous to attack the http://www.quantico.usmc.mil with a denial of service attack. This is nothing short of a waste of time by the FBI. The FBI will not find or catch anyone breaking a law because they do not have the resources to stop such an act or spend enough resources collecting logs from ISP’s around the world. More importantly, the psyops against the USMC Quantico jailers has begun. They jailers will never get out from under the spotlight they created for themselves by torturing Mr. Manning. USMC jailer Denise Barnes has been singled out along with several others for their direct action of torture. It seems they have lost any ‘American’ values if they ever had any to begin with, let us not forget Mr. Manning is innocent until proven guilty, the courts have not spoken a word on this matter. The only thing the courts have done thus far is to keep Mr. Manning from having his rights to a fair and speedy trail. So, the courts have denied him his basic rights and therefore we can expect that the courts will be completely biased against him. A chance for a fair trial is slipping away everyday that there is no movement by the justice system and thus the justice system has no credibility. If Mr. Manning is prosecuted in a USMC kangaroo court this will do nothing more than divide the nation further. The way the US government treats its own people confirms the obvious, the empire is failing on several fronts, the US dollar is being dumped worldwide as the reserve currency, the US dollar is becoming worthless, the US debt is out of control and a the US Federal government has no credibility as shown by the Wikleaks CableGate matter. It is encouraging to see the protests in Wisconsin for labor and democratic rights, possibly these will spread across the nation and it will be the beginning of a new USA, a nation that respects the law instead of flaunting it. I mention the coming fall of the US empire because it is a factor in the Bradley Manning case. His treatment is symptomatic of the entire system that is oppressing the people of the USA with the most effective propaganda machine the world has ever seen. Please support Bradley Manning on March 20th and NMAP the shit out of the Quantico USMC network, phone phreak the base with ‘polite’ discussion and statements and show up to the rally in Quantico, Va. All of the suggested actions are perfectly legal and will make the folks at USMC nervous. These efforts will encourage Bradley Manning in the fight for his life.
The revolutions in the Arab world are changing the perceptions of ill-informed Westerners who have believed the media thinking that the Arab people are not ready for pluralism, democracy and human rights. The fact is on the ground the people have spoken in Egypt, Tunisia and the current fight in Libya proves the time for change is now. Today, the French Prime Minister, Nicolas Sarkozy has made a bold move to recognize the Libyan revolutionary movement as the legitimate government of the Libyan people. It’s not surprising that the USA and most other western countries are not prepared to take any real steps to recognize the fact that the Gaddafi regime is over. The USA and its allies are at a loss to explain their position other than to say it is nothing short of hypocrisy. The Obama administration has been late in its hollow statements of support in each of these revolutions and the fact is they have essentially been silent on the many massacres of innocent civilians by the dictators they still support throughout the region. The USA is deeply worried that the end has come to the statism of dictatorships across the Arab world. They should be worried, the old influence of the West is over, the US plutocracy and empire will have to deal fairly with people of the Arab world or be completely rejected. Not surprising, the rhetoric and the lies from Gaddafi in Libya and the USA are remarkable because of their similarity, when things are not going as ‘they’ like, both blame the same mythological beast, al Qaeda. The criminal syndicate al Qaeda is also filled with fear, similar to the West, they are losing political ground when people reject their propaganda in favor of truths on the ground. Nothing could be better for the human condition to reject US hegemony and the theocratic fascism offered by al Qaeda. It is a new beginning, a chance for the Arab world to wipe the slate clean and possibly make a new standard for a free society that we in the West may look up to. I wish them and support the people with all my might. It is necessary to fight hard against an oligarchy that is well entrenched and knows that a state that fights survives, however, people who fight for freedom and co-op the forces of human spirit, Win!
