New photographs released of tsunami hitting the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power station in Japan. Tepco power station’s sea defences seen crumbling as wall of seawater overwhelms facility….

The… best laid plans of mice, men – and monsters…
They don’t seem to want to show the first shots of the tsunami hitting the square, so artfully designed outerwalls of the blue and white towers. I thought the design looked like tissue paper, art paper designs. And hell yeah, it was tissue paper.
And now we know, because they say so now, that within hours we had initial stages of melt down. I am so very shocked.
And of course surprised.
A lovely listing of protests, with arrests, just in the Years of Obama, part of our long, slow, inevitable trickle down thru the muddy drains of imperial collapse.
Jack Cohen-Joppa, who with his partner Felice, edits The Nuclear Resister, told me
“Over the last three decades, in the course of chronicling more than 100,000 arrests for nonviolent protest and resistance to nuclear power, nuclear weapons, torture, and war, we’ve noted a quadrennial decline as support for protest and resistance gets swallowed up by Presidential politicking. It has taken a couple of years, but the Hopeian addicts of 2008 are finally getting into recovery [hmm well, maybe, but!, let’s not rely on the Hopium addicts – Mcat].
We’re again reporting a steady if slow rise in the numbers willing to risk arrest and imprisonment for acts of civil resistance.
Today, for instance, there are more Americans serving time in prison for nuclear weapons protest than at any time in more than a decade.”
If reading the protest list does not cause an almost involuntary sense of rage against the parade of Shuffle Toe’d, Shambles and Mess of Shit for Brains leaders who throw themselves at us… well….
(And that drippy, third-rate, God Bless America! thugdom from Bibi this morning is just the carcinogenic cherry on top of it all…)
