Its the way of the world, some will agree with you when others will not?.
Regarding the Japan disaster, it would seem as though they had to suspend the rescue plans in the area of the reactors this weekend, because of higher levels of radiation readings, including reading from 200 miles away from the site itself.
There was a program on BBC 2 on Sunday evening 27/03/11@ 8.00pm, Japan Earthquake, an Horizon Special with Prof. Iain Stewart. Well worth a look if its on iPlayer. Some very scary information, especially about the increase of nuclear plants in possible real danger zones. Apparently Japan had a similar incident regarding one of their plants not all that long ago, possibly caused by another earthquake.
One thing that I found amazing, was how some of the major damaged roads in Japan are being repaired for usage,within a very short time. Here in the UK it would take a number of committees to reach a decision, let alone do the actual repairs in double quick time.
As for the governments shovelling money into banks or badly managed countries (I notice that there are another 2 countries ready with their EU bail-out begging bowls), then in my opinion this is expected nowadays. Why bother about a few thousand or millions of people less educated and without economical resources, when greed,arrogance or the old buddies act wins the day?.
