  • Good-Bye, Tokyo

    Posted by James R. Rummel on March 17th, 2011 (All posts by )

    Minutes ago I received an Email. It seems that the US military has ordered a “voluntary evacuation of military dependents from the Tokyo/Yokosuka region.”

    As my source has a very young child, her husband and daughter will be leaving the country very soon. Details are sketchy at this time, but it appears that they will be flown to Korea before repatriation to the States.

      The danger to the US from fall-out from these reactors is vastly overstated. At worst a reactor may melt down, pass through the Earth and devour Washington D.C. (the DC syndrome).

      The US has already exploded two bombs in Japan plus several more on various islands in the Pacific and in New Mexico. So far there has been no effect on the people living in the US except that most of the people of Hawaii, California, Washington and Oregon all vote for lefties.

      There will probably be no effect on anyone except the men working at the plant, and even that will be minimal. Two thirds of the “experts” on the news channels are anti-nuke activists, presenting totally biased information. Democrats are not interested in dispelling fears.

      This is another example of a small number of activists driving an agenda. Of course having a radical activist in the oval office is pretty effective.

      In the military, voluntary evacuations are done for reasons of morale and not safety. It lets nervous service people get their families out of the way so they can concentrate on their jobs. If the military believes there is a genuine threat, they simply order a mandatory evacuation.

      Is this a Godzilla thread?

      We should be so lucky.

      I think it happened a long time ago and the country is being run by mutant Congressmen. Just look at the giant radioactive budget they pass every year…
