The Scientific and Technological Options Assessment reportreleased in November 2001 by the European Parliament showed that the combined effect of discharges from the La Hague and Sellafield reprocessing facilities constitutes “the world’s largest releases of radioactivity into the environment, corresponding to a large-scale nuclear accident every year.”

According to a Johnson State College student research paper, the United States began dumping radioactive waste in 1946, and the practice was carried on by 14 countries over a 48-year period. During this time, 80 dump sites were used all around the oceans.  Over that period it was estimated that radioactive dumping had reached a total of 84,000 terabecquerels.

“Using the world oceans as a dump” must stop.

USS Calhoun County sailors dumped thousands of tons of radioactive waste into ocean

Like the Mafia dumps radioactive waste into the Mediterranean, the US Navy has been dumping hot radioactive waste into the Atlantic (and likely elsewhere) for a long time.   This is impunity, arrogance, criminality, potentially another crime against humanity.  They didn’t care that their own sailors were being irradiated without protective clothing during the ops, and so this is also cold-blooded murder.

But you’re not allowed to call out the military and the government as criminals in the US of fucking A.  The military runs this banana republic, and the national media won’t state basic facts without spinning them into some gibberish.   Often these stories won’t be reported across the country at all, not if they make certain institutions look bad.

Truth be told, many thousands of high officials should be rotting in prison and accountability should be enacted here.  The health and safety of the people should rate in these decisions, but they don’t, except for the the need to hide the damage from the people and keep these crimes secret.  But there are no conspiracies in America you see.  Anyone who reports conspiracy by official actors must be crazy.  The media says so.

Only, technically, most of what comes out of DC is conspiracy: bribery, aggressive war, fraud, waste, grand theft, unconstitutional spying, violating whistleblower’s rights, environmental crimes, violating human rights, torture, murder, the list is extensive and damning when considered as a whole.  But there are no “conspiracies,” because the media says so.  “Conspiratorial thinking” is the new mental illness, the new (old) Orwellian rationale for the suppression of the truth.  They don’t commit crimes.  You must be mad.  They are in charge.

Enjoy your fish.

TEPCO Believes Mission Accomplished & Regulators Allow Radioactive Dumping in Tokyo Bay

Arne Gunderson analyzes the latest developments and the abomination that is taking place in Japan right now. Criminal IAEA fraud deceives entire populations into believing they are acting as a “watchdog” on the nuclear industry, when in fact their charter states clearly that they are to promote nuclear power.

The is a criminal industry that is killing people and giving them cancers by the thousands, men, women, children, even animals. It is the most fascistic industry, a clear joining of corporate and state power to force risk onto regular people without their consent.
