Yoshio Hachiro took office just a week ago... His comment came as he described his visit a day earlier to inspect damage and cheer workers at the Fukushima plant. "Sorry to say, there was not a single soul in areas around the plant," Hachiro told reporters. "Literally it was like a town of death."

Cost of civilian 'surge' in Afghanistan: $1.7 billion 08 Sep 2011 A "surge” of U.S. civilian officials into Afghanistan has cost about $1.7 billion since 2009, and is likely to get a lot more expensive soon, according to a new audit. Two years ago, the Obama administration announced plans to send hundreds of more civilians to Afghanistan, with hopes that diplomats, specialists from across the U.S. government and others could help improve Afghan governance and encourage sustainable economic growth.

AP: Kuwait may host US Iraq backup force 08 Sep 2011 The Obama regime is considering staging American troops in Kuwait next year as a backup or rotational training force for Iraq, after the Pentagon completes the scheduled withdrawal of its current 45,000-strong force from Iraq in December, U.S. officials said... Another option under Pentagon consideration is positioning a small U.S. combat force in Kuwait that could rush into Iraq in the event of a security problem or to target an insurgent threat, two officials said. Another possibility is to retain in Kuwait some of the U.S. ground combat equipment that is being pulled out of Iraq, instead of shipping it back to the U.S. ['Rush into Iraq in the event of a security problem?' The US *is* the 'security problem!' --LRP]

The dual-reactor at the North Anna facility experienced "strong" ground motion in the north-south direction for about three seconds during the August quake, said Eric Hendrixson, director of nuclear engineering for Dominion.

Obusha is about to speak. Should I watch 'Criminal Minds' or 'Law & Order: Criminal Intent?'

September 8, 2011 by legitgov

Obusha is about to speak. Should I watch 'Criminal Minds' or 'Law & Order: Criminal Intent?' By Lori Price, www.legitgov.org 08 Sep 2011 Oops! I just realized that if I choose Obama, I'd be watching 'Criminal Minds' either way! Seriously: Rick Perry, Mitt Romney and Barack Obama *all* desire to destroy Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. The only difference is, Rick Perry is honest about his intentions. Perry and Romney didn't establish a Super Dictatorship (aka Cat Food Commission II) to eliminate Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid -- Barack Obama did. If he wanted to avoid the Tea Party-imposed 'debt ceiling crisis,' he would have invoked the 14th Amendment and called it a day. Barack Obama is begging Congress: 'Please, please, please accept your Republican proposals! Please pass more corporate tax breaks and more cuts to Medicare and Medicaid so I can be accepted and liked!' Primary Obusha in 2012!

Ex-PM feared for Japan's survival in nuclear crisis --Kan: Crisis management at plant failed because emergency plans included no scenario for a total power failure 07 Sep 2011 Japan's former prime minister says he feared early in the March nuclear crisis that it might become many times worse than the Chernobyl disaster and threaten the nation's survival.
