Japan earthquake

Anyone seeing this right now?
I was watching it live. So weird to watch a tsunami live from across the world. Hope all is alright over there, the videos are pretty crazy.
An 8.9 is nuts.

Been watching most of the night. Japan is in really bad shape. The live footage of the tsunami was heart breaking, watching entire towns and people trying to flee the incoming wave being swept away really shows how small we really are.
Prayers for all those affected.
According to reports so far all our people and assets are safe but Japan itself is going to take years to recover from this.

I still have a bunch of friends still stationed out there from when I left.
After the quake they've had 46 aftershocks that were above 5.0 almost everyone was within 3 minutes of eachother.

It has absolutely nothing to do with the moon being at it's closest point in many years putting extra tension on fault lines and such...

It was reported on a local radio station that during his condolences to Japan he offered our assistance and stated that our relationship with them is "unshakable". Hmmm...maybe not the best choice of words following an 8.9 earthquake.

Absolutley devastating what has happened in Japan. I feel so sorry for those that have lost their loved ones, their homes and their livelihood.

Reports we are hearing is that Radiation is being contained from the Nuclear Power Plants despite an explosion that occured at the Fukashima Power Plant. Being a Nuclear Power Plant engineer myself, I know this disaster is in the best possible hands of the Japanesse.

Tragic, the extent of the damage will have a huge impact on Japan. The nuclear plant is not looking so good thats for sure so could be big problems in their future.
Sending good thoughts to anyone who has loved ones there

Got a phone call in the middle of the night. My son's a U.S. Marine, stationed in Okinawa, called to say they had survived the earthquake and were waiting on the tsunami, and he'd call us back after that. 12 hours and no word. Just news coverage of the devastation. Finally we got the phone call he was o.k...along with all the rest of the men and women over there. Tense time. But they're all good. Now, he and his buddies are looking forward to helping out the poor people whose lives are being devastated. Thank God for our men and women in uniform.

Yea, this is really terrible, especially the reactors that are in trouble, but

I've been watching it on/off since it happened and there's something that hasen't even been mentiomed on all the news factions--

Based on the dangers of ionizing radiation and all th immenent contamination-grass/plants/water and the thyroid dangers-there's been no mention of what Japan went thru in WW11-

Heroshima/Nagasaki, I can just immagine all the japanese old-timers going "OH NO-Here we go again", but

Not one word on TV--you think it's because it's not POLITICALLY CORRECT to broach the subject ??

It's a jungle out there !

The #1 reactor blew. Reactors 2 and 3 have cooling systems that are completely screwed. It's FUBAR.

What happened in WWII has no relevance to what is going on in Japan right now, so why would it be brought up ?

Japan learned a hard lesson in WWII and takes responsibility for the end result. They're now a self proclaimed pacifist nation. They have no nuclear arms stockpile.

Having said that, give it time, the mindless talking heads will bring it up sooner or later.

Maybe it's just me but I think mother nature is fighting back. When a person gets sick your body gets a fever to fight off the infection and I feel like we are an infection to earth with all of our pollution and littering and what not. Earth has started fighting back, trying to kill off the infection or at least get it under control. I feel deeply for the Japanese. I have friends from college from Japan and they are in my prayers.

The nuclear fall out is worse than Chernobyl. From the time he news was posted, the radioactive dust will hit the pacific coast of the USA.
