From fluoride to depleted Uranium, how much detritus from war finds its way into corporate, government, or industrial uses?
"Twenty years ago the lead author of Japan’s military doctrine repeated to me that for thirty years its military had understood that Japan’s constitution permits the military to possess tactical (Hiroshima-size) nuclear weapons. It was, he said, simply a right that they had yet to exercise. Last week, Abe’s cabinet reasserted this right. In the wake of President Obama’s Nuclear Security Summit, the Abe Cabinet reaffirmed that right to possess – and thus use – nuclear weapons."
Could the radioactive detritus still breathing fire (like a lethal dragon, untamed) from Fukushima factor into the incentive described above?
From the article:
"Not wanting to complicate U.S.-Japan relations, the president will not point to the hypocrisy of Japan’s foreign minister announcing his plans for a “Hiroshima Declaration” in the same week that his cabinet reaffirmed Japan’s right to possess nuclear weapons and as plans move forward for Japan to increase its already massive stockpile of weapons-grade plutonium. He won’t give a favorable nod to Japanese civil society’s drive to gather 20 million petition signatures opposing the war laws."
Speaking of hypocrisy... it's mind-blowing that the thing purported to operate as the weapon that will protect mankind is already defining its collective expiration date.
I've always found it unbelievably karmic that the one place that felt the impact of nuclear weapons is the place that's now relaying that same deadly substance back to the rest of the world... with lethal radiation daily carried on air and sea currents far and wide.
And still, the imbecilic leaders play phallic weapons games under the guise that such pathetic spiritual retardation somehow comports with this idea of "National Defense."
