Thomas Nides, who happens to be in Japan, congratulates the Noda administration on the end of the nuclear accident marked by a cold shut down "state".
He said in the press conference that he had heard it one day in advance from Japan's Foreign Minister that the Fukushima plant had achieved the state of cold shutdown. Hahahahaha.
Is NRC Chairman Greg Jaczko still coming to Japan to join the farce?
From NHK News (12/16/2011):
US Deputy Secretary of State Thomas Nides, who is in Japan, held a press conference on December 16 and disclosed that he had been informed by Foreign Minister Genba on December 15 that Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant had achieved a cold shutdown state. "We at the US government are very happy to hear the news. We believe the Japanese government has made the right choice toward recovery." Regarding the massive decontamination work that will be needed, he said "Many US companies are interested in taking part, and our government has offered assistance", indicating the continued support for the recovery from the nuclear accident.
Recovery from the nuclear accident, NHK? The accident is ongoing and you know it.
So here you go. Nothing the US companies like better than a bubble, and they are eager to join in Japan's decon bubble, at the Japan's taxpayers' expense.
