"Japanese officials are at odds over whether water dumps on the crippled Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant Thursday has worked."
it's plainly a case where the japanese officials are at their wits' end. they have no freakin' idea what to do now, and this helicopter is just the latest in a long line of desperate measures that have had no appreciable effect.
remember the boric acid trick? i used to use that stuff to kill roaches in my apartment, once upon a time...
for all the good they've done, next thing you know they'll be summoning godzilla to come and urinate on the plant... sorry to make light of such a terrible situation, but this is pathetic.
for the sake of money, the lives of millions are in jeopardy. what kind of diabolical trade-off was that? and when the FOX new corporate automatons go on the march, selling their US audience the idea that current nuclear technology is perfectly safe, let's hope the images of fukashima burn bright in everyone's memory for a long, long time.
