Forums - General Discussion - What's the wost that could happen in japan?

Let's say the nuclear plant melts down completely. What does that mean for japan? I have little knowledge here. Does that mean that that particular area of japan becomes unusable for many years? Does it mean a bunch of neighboring cities need to be evacuated and japan? I heard radiation could get carried through the jet stream and get to the states. is that true?

well a nuclear meltdown would be the absolute worse for Japan, it would effect Japan for many years.(I believe chernobyl still has radiation it it soil to this day) they've already evactuated people in a 12-mile radius. and tie that in with a threat of another tsunami would just worsen an already deep wound.



Well I doubt the fallout would be substantial in the US. However I was watching the news and they said the immediate area would be un-inhabitable for decades. Then theirs the fact that the wind would carry the particals across a large amount of the country.

Radiation could be blown over Tokyo if the wind blows right. Which would mean Tokyo would be contaminated as well for quite some time. Today their are still reports of radition illnesses in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. I've heard like last year of birth defects supposedly caused by the radiation left from WWII.

Now I don't know how bad the contamination would be in Tokyo if the radiation was spread over their. I also don't know how much of the country would be covered if the radiation leak contaminated that much. In the end it could mean birth defects, other abnormal effects to the peoples bodies. Increase in deseases caused by Radiation.

It could contaminate crops damaging Japan's ability to grow its own food. According to the images shown on CTV the contamination could cover the majority of the country if the winds are right. If that occured it would be catastropic for Japan.

Also last I heard their were two plants near melt down. If they both went who knows how much more damage could be done. In the end if either plant goes Japan will be devestated for decades to come!

I'd like to add in Scientists have predicted another Earthquake of Magnitude 7 and Tsunami's to follow. If that prediction comes true again its horrible and worsens things!

North Korea could decide to drop a Nuke on march 15th on Japan(specfically the US warships in the harbors). Although, I wouldn't be surprised if measures have been taken to prevent this.

That's what I was just thinking.

You overestimate North Korea's technology and underestimate Japan's. The DPRK's missile delivery capabilities are relatively limited in terms of accuracy, and the ability of the Japanese self-defense forces, once actually activated, will be significant

Fucking commies. Why don't the government nuke this shitty country and evaporate fucking commies from earth' face before such things could happen? This is quite beyond me.

China. Though wikileaks exposed that China too has little patience for North Korea, i'm positive they would not appreciate having a militantly anti-communist and pro-American regime right on their borders, and there's the possibility that as in the Korean War, they would move in to back them up (though that is far less likely today)

Also that the real reality of South Korea having to assimilate North Korea and North Koreans (which would be the inevitable consequence of the destruction of the DPRK) would be staggering. The Federal Republic of Germany struggled for decades to fix up former East Germany, and the severe discrepancy between the Koreas today is far greater than the discrepancy between the Germanys was then. At least the East Germans had food.

You very well could be right. I'm not sure how well developed Japan's anti-missle defense is, or where it was located pre quake. I'm sure U.S. warships could handle anything N Korea would launch.
