1. The expected Monday bounce is in progress as Japan officially did not get worse ( at least no explosions ) – media even says better although smoke comes out of 3 and workers are ordered to leave as pressure has been rising ( the most dangerous one with plutonium). While Libya had a Full Moon climax event on the weekend but Gadaffi calls for ceasefire a second time but this time with a different agenda as he wants to exploit the frictions between Nato members and the attacking countries. Looks like things are better but they are not really as the contamination of the land and sea will have some serious implications going forward in matters of health and inflation. The Middle East is getting worse as its only a matter of time that Bahrain and Saudis will be faced with dramatic changes ( astrology is quite obvious in far stronger forces to be at work in months for a long period of 3 years.

Well, in tried and true fashion, it took Japan a week to confirm what everyone else had been certain had occurred over a week earlier. According to the Asahi Shinbun, with a translation courtesy of Ex-Skf, we finally know that the “nuclear fuel rods in the pressure vessels and in the spent fuel pools at the plant have been damaged.” Which means that any incremental work the repair crews may be doing at this point is simply window dressing in preparation for the concrete tomb/lead bath.

Last week we asked what could possibly be worse than a “grave” situation (as Fukushima was described by the IAEA). We now have our answer:
*WATER DOUSED ON REACTORS MAY HAVE LEAKED TO OCEAN, NHK SAYS
*NHK CITES JAPAN NUCLEAR AND INDUSTRIAL SAFETY AGENCY
And scene, as oxygen/fire-breathing, mutated 10 eyed, ill-tempered seabass and sharks with frickin laser beams attached to their heads rise out of the ocean take over the mainland.
