What's more important: Japan's version of Chernobyl or Libyan oil?

With Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant having reached a Chernobyl level
7 alarm, in terms of nuclear and environmental disaster, why is the
world’s media still so focused on Libya?

It’s mad, it’s folly, and
it’s true. The word’s media, and even Japan’s, has turned its coverage
away from this subject to such an extent I feel we have to
ask:

  • Will the world end before the press gets wind of it?
  • Will
    the UN be sending in fighter troops to help those ‘democratic freedom
    fighters’ as the nuclear disaster reaches a global level 8 or 9 and the
    world as we know it ends before their very eyes?
  • Will the
    nuclear lobby group be hiding out in underground bunkers discussing,
    with potential political allies, how to get more nuclear power plants
    built even if their number of potential clients dissipates into nothing?

    Thank you. I hope folks will rethink the issues around nuclear power, as well as coal-fired electric plants, oil and natural gas dependency. We have to get these issues solved quickly, and united on a global scale, because a seldom-remembered issue is right around the corner. Fresh water.

    So far I have not seen any real information on what the hell is going on over there other then the hysterical crap put out by the popular media. repeating the same bits of news add infinitum. There is no way to judge the situation. I do know that if nuclear power generation is shelved for a while the price of oil will go up even more then it has already so I would say more nuclear power stations and either back Qaddafi or the rebels just get things settled down over there this is costing me a fortune. It does not really matter who wins they will continue to kill each other off on tribal grounds any way. Just look at what is starting to transpire in Egypt.

    Those issues are equally tragic.

    The general public will not have control of these issues. We will be informed truthfully about very little, if at all, and what we are told will be only what they think or feel they need us to know.
    The information we receive on just about everything is full of BS and unnecessary fluff. So the answer to this question is. 'Both are equally important to the whole world, but we only PAY for the tragedies we are not able to speak about it as common citizens on any national platform but the Internet. Our lives are literally in the hands of tyrants but even that, we aren't supposed to understand.

    Ever since WWII the U.S. Elite have literally owned the Japanese. Things the common citizen will never be told, never understand, and rarely comprehend. 'Manifest Destiny' is alive and well, and in full effect, but it doesn't work for the 'American' citizen, it is just as devastating for us! Find out how many U.S. troops stay in Japan and try to understand why?

    "Will the

    built even if their number of potential clients dissipates into nothing?"

    Of course they will because nuclear is "safe" and there are profits to be had. Didn't you know that?

    Just like the catastrophic oil spill... it will be easily brushed off. Drill baby drill. I love that line We have more oil wells on line than we have had in over 20 years on our soil. People think it will make a difference at the pump but it won't. The oil companies will still make their profits. Why would that change just because they can drill here? Because they won't have the extra shipping charges or import/export tax? That oil will be sold to whomever will pay the most! Corporations care about profit, not what is right.

    We are great at justifying our selfish ways. After all we are Americans and we are ENTITLED to destroy whatever we want (including ourselves) in the name of convenience and consumerism.

    We as a people have no determination as to what is done and said on our behalf. The elite have made our words useless as they continue to suck our wealth right out of our hands.
    They determine what countries get more nuclear plants and oil wells. They receive the wealth and power of the world and they know how to keep it that way. We are to be kept unaware, and poorly maintained, as the elite pillage us, and those of the world! Believe it or not!

    Japan's tragedy is to be questioned and understood in microscopic form. A bunch of studies are yet to be made, but to what ends?
    Libya is a part of the 'Manifest Destiny' measures if you will. Understand that any nation which rejects the will of the Anglo-Elite will suffer the consequences. Any leader of a nation with resources who aims to do well for his people will be met with harsh treatment. Now seems to be the time to correct past mistakes for the 'Elite's attempts at pillaging weaker nations. This may be the reason Obama was chosen to "lead" a generally 'white' power structure toward pillaging Africa and the middle-east both at once! In order to get the already ignorant 'American' public riled up, the lies of an evil dictator (used much too often) must be constantly rammed down our throats. We are the most duped people in the world! Believe it or not!

    Both are important.But the world needs to get the priorities straight.First there is the need to get the nuclear plant under control,then take care of libya.Unfortunitly Libya is the easiest to take care of.Send a small group of snipers in and put what's his face out of Libya's missory.

    We are the people born to an "Evil Empire". You have only to carefully look around you to see how evil those in power treat us! If you can't see it, it only means they have done their mind screwing job well! (That, they have done).
    If you were to study the actual goings-on, you would understand that just as the 'Elite' suck the life's blood from us one way, they use a more vicious and deadly tactic to suck the blood of nations far away. Believe the lies of a corrupt media, and wealthy politicians at your own peril. It would be best if you spend more time trying to understand the tragedy of the 'American Republic'. Believe it or not!

    Th Japan catastrophe has just started and will continue for centuries. In fact the dimension of such "accidents" are far above human understanding. The comparison with Chernobyl alone is complete nonsense cause the Japan disaster is exactly 4600 Chernobyl's w/o solution on hand. I rather ask myself if there will be a Japan in the future cause the cancer will come soon.

    Your point is well stated in that we are not supposed to know very much about anything important to our overall life and that of the world. We are to be kept in the dark for just about everything, and if not kept in the dark, at least bombarded with unbelievable lies, which as unbelievable as it seems to those of us who follow these tragedies closely, is believable to those who are unable to see reality in all its glory.
    Why is it that people cannot see truth and reality when it is blatantly in their faces? This is unbelievable! Believe it or not!
