‘Is Japan cool?’ トルコのテレビ局がFUKUSHIMAの特集を放映

Insight: Fukushima Danger - Part I
Insight: Fukushima Danger - Part II

TV: Fukushima Radiation Alert − Concern ‘nuclear chain reaction’ could occur at plant − Reactors are still melting down and spewing radioactivity − Fuel has burned through containment − Expert: It’s unprecedented… could’ve been 12 Chernobyls (VIDEO)

TRT World transcript excerpts (government-funded public broadcaster of Turkey), Apr 14, 2017:

Martin Stanford, host of ‘Insight’ (emphasis added): Radiation Alert − a nuclear scientist tells us the cleanup at Japan’s Fukushima plant could take 100 years… The decommissioning process has barely begun… A British nuclear scientist who’s just come back from Fukushima has told this program it could take up to 100 years.

1:15 in – Dana Lewis, senior correspondent: In three years Tokyo will host the Summer Olympics, and ironically one of the commercial slogans asks ‘Is Japan cool?’ It would almost be funny if the situation wasn’t so serious. 150 miles from Tokyo is the Fukushima nuclear power station where the situation is not cool − it’s a super-heated atomic catastrophe ever since a powerful earthquake rattled Japan in 2011 a 15-metre tsunami engulfed Fukushima and caused three reactors to melt down and they still are.

1:45 in – Kevin Kamps, Beyond Nuclear: It’s unknown where those cores are at… There is some possibility that it’s burrowed completely through the containment, and is sitting in groundwater.

2:30 in – Lewis: Deep inside Fukushima there is a molten mess… But exactly how deep are those cores? And that is a burning question. These close-up photographs show that it has burned through some of the containment structure and burrowed deep in the foundation of the reactor. Until those cores can be retrieved, the radiation will keep spewing into groundwater and leaking − no one knows for sure where… Neil Hyatt is a professor of nuclear materials chemistry. [He's] back from touring Fukushima − well at least the storage areas… and he admits the situation will haunt Japan for generations.

3:45 in – Neil Hyatt, nuclear scientist: Somewhere between 40 and 100 years for the Fukushima cleanup and complete decommissioning is probably a reasonable estimate…

4:00 in – Lewis: But while they plan to get to those cores Tokyo Electric is struggling with a lethal radioactive dragon…

4:45 in – Hyatt: One concern is that there could be a resumption of the nuclear chain reaction…

7:00 in – Mark Whitby, engineer: This was an unprecedented accident, it was very close to being much worse than Chernobyl… It wasn’t so much the reactor cores which were melting – there was nothing they could do to to retrieve that situation. The real problem was that one of the reactors had been recently taken offline, it had a fuel pond which was very hot, stacked with 20 years worth of fuel rods and that was beginning to boil dry… Had that fuel pond boiled, and Prime Minister Kan was very aware of this, this would have been 12 Chernobyls…

Tory government would launch preemptive nuclear strike, defense secretary says
Prime Minister Theresa May would be prepared to launch a preemptive nuclear strike against any enemies, even if Britain was not under attack, Defence Secretary Michael Fallon has claimed.
“In the most extreme circumstances we have made it very clear that you can’t rule out the use of nuclear weapons as a first strike,” Fallon told the BBC’s Today program.
When asked in what circumstances, he replied: “They are better not specified or described, which would only give comfort to our enemies and make the deterrent less credible.
“The whole point about the deterrent is that you have got to leave uncertainty in the mind of anyone who might be thinking of using weapons against this country.”

Al-Qaeda leader tells terrorists to prepare for long guerilla war in Syria
The leader of international terrorist group Al-Qaeda has urged jihadists fighting in Syria to unite for a ‘holy war,’ and to use guerrilla tactics.
Ayman Al Zawahri’s audio message was published by Al-Qaeda’s media arm, As-Sahab, on Monday, although it did not specify the time when the recording had been made, according to Reuters.

Top US military commander accuses Russia of arming Taliban
US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has said that Washington "will confront Russia" after a top US military commander claimed Moscow is "sending weapons" to the Taliban. No specifics or evidence were provided to support the claims which Moscow has previously denied.
Speaking at a joint press conference with Mattis in the Afghan capital of Kabul on Monday, the head of the US and international forces in Afghanistan, General John Nicholson said the US "continue to get reports of this [Russia's] assistance" to Taliban insurgents.

Former Al-Nusra Commander Asks Tahrir Al-Sham Leader to Commit Suicide Following Defeats in Hama
TEHRAN (FNA)- A former commander of Al-Nusra Front (also known as Fatah al-Sham Front or the Levant Liberation Board) said that top Commander of Tahrir al-Sham Hay'at (the Levant Liberation Board) Abu Mohammad Joulani should kill himself due to his weak management and following the recent defeats of his forces in the battle with the Syrian Army in Hama.
"Were I al-Joulani I would surely commit suicide in a religious way after the military collapse of Tahrir al-Sham Hay'at's forces" in the battle against the Syrian army in Northern Hama, Saleh al-Homawi wrote in his tweeter.
"Al-Nusra prevents other (terrorist) groups from participation in the battles (with the Syrian army), and then retreats in a dramatic manner," he added.
Military analysts said that disagreement among terrorists and their commander has intensified after their repeated and rapid defeats of the terrorists in Northern Hama.
"Only when you renew allegiance we will agree your back up," the commanders of Tahrir al-Sham had told Ahrar al-Sham commanders who had offered to dispatch their forces to Northern Hama battlefield to take part in clashes with the army.
Reports said that 10,000 terrorists participated in Northern Hama's battle, adding that several thousands of them have thus far been killed in the clashes with the Syrian soldiers.
The army has also liberated large regions in Northern Hama in the last two months.
Relevant reports said on Sunday that the army troops prevailed over the defense lines of Al-Nusra Front in the town of Halfaya and imposed full control over the town, which once was the largest bastion of the terrorist group in Northern Hama.
The army soldiers continued their advances against Al-Nusra and after hours of non-stop tough battle recaptured the town of Halfaya.
The army forces had previously retaken control of the regions of Hajez al-Kafr, Jubb Abu Ma'arouf and al-Wibdeh.
Al-Nusra suffered heavy casualties and its military hardware sustained major damage in the operation.

Ex-CIA Officer: US Officials Behind Chemical Attack in Syria
Steele said the claim that the Syrian government still has chemical weapons bears no relation to reality and added that evidence mounts that the Idlib incident was a false flag operation.

"We now know from a source that serves on the staff of one of three American traitors that I will name: Senator John McCain, former CIA Director John Brennan, and National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. Herbert McMaster − [that] they conspired with Israel and Saudi Arabia. The White Helmets were paid over $300,000 and this was a false flag attack and an MIT professor [Theodore A. Postol] provided superb analysis which says that it was a ground improvised-explosive device and that was not sarin gas," Steele told Radio Sputnik.

He referred to MIT professor of Technology and National Security Policy Theodore A. Postol's research busting the US intelligence report blaming the Syrian government for the suspected attack in Idlib province.

"This was a false flag attack carried out and organized by American traitors working with Israel and Saudi Arabia," the former CIA officer reiterated.

The former CIA officer pointed out that different geopolitical actors are pursuing their own goals. For instance, Saudi Arabia wants Syria so that they can run a pipeline to the sea and not be dependent on the Strait of Hormuz for shipping.

On the other hand, "Goldman Sachs wants war in the Middle East because they made some very bad bets on oil and they are about to lose a ton of money and a war will drive up the price of oil," Steele explained.

For their part, US neoconservatives want a war in the Middle East "because that's what Israel pays them to want."

"Last but not least is the US military industrial complex," he said, adding that "they want a war in order to use up the US military so we have to buy it again."

Russia Ready to Send Ground Forces to Syria
TEHRAN (FNA)- Syrian military sources revealed that Moscow has informed Damascus of its preparedness to dispatch ground troops to Syria.
Al-Hadath news quoted the sources as saying that Russia has announced that in case of the Syrian army's request it is ready to send ground forces to Syria.
The sources said that special Russian forces are prepared to be deployed in regions which are experiencing the most pressures by the terrorist groups.
They added that the technical aspects of the plan have been studied and prepared by Russia, saying that the plan can be implemented upon Russian President Vladimir Putin's order after Damascus' official request.
A Russian daily reported earlier this month that the country's soldiers are about to shoulder the responsibility of restoring security to the Christian-populated regions during the Syrian Army's imminent anti-terrorism operations in Northern Hama.
Izvestia reported that the Russian units will help popular forces in Hama province to restore security to the town of Mahradeh, whose population are mainly Christians.
The daily added that terrorists are under the Syrian Army's siege from all directions.
There have been fierce clashes between the government forces and militants near Hahradeh since April 4th.
Informed sources believe that the army intends to complete the siege of the terrorists in Northern Hama to clean the region up to the border with Idlib province.

Experts: Donald Trump Has 'Dangerous Mental Illness’

TEHRAN (FNA)- A group of American psychiatrists warned that US President Donald Trump has a "dangerous mental illness" and is unfit to lead the country.

Over thirty mental health experts said Thursday at a conference at Yale University that Trump was “paranoid and delusional” and they were responsible for warning Americans about the “dangers” Trump poses, presstv reported.

“We have an ethical responsibility to warn the public about Donald Trump's dangerous mental illness,” Dr. John Gartner said at Yale’s School of Medicine in New Haven, Connecticut.

Gartner added that Trump’s false claim about having the largest crowd at his inauguration was just one of many that served as warnings of a wider problem.

Gartner leads a group of mental health experts that believes President Trump suffers from a combination of anti-social personality disorders and extreme narcissism and is unfit for the job. He started an online petition earlier this year on calling for Trump to be removed from office.

“Worse than just being a liar or a narcissist, in addition he is paranoid, delusional and grandiose thinking and he proved that to the country the first day he was President. If Donald Trump really believes he had the largest crowd size in history, that’s delusional,” he said.

“As some prominent psychiatrists have noted, [Trump’s mental health] is the elephant in the room. I think the public is really starting to catch on and widely talk about this now,” Dr. Bandy Lee, an assistant clinical professor at the Yale Department of Psychiatry, said.

James Gilligan, a psychiatrist and professor at New York University, told the conference he had worked with some of the “most dangerous people in society,” but that he was convinced by the “dangerousness” of Trump.

“I’ve worked with murderers and rapists. I can recognize dangerousness from a mile away. You don’t have to be an expert on dangerousness or spend fifty years studying it like I have in order to know how dangerous this man is,” he added.

トルコのテロ主導が次々と露顕 サンクトペテルブルグでも



St. Petersburg Metro Blast Financed by Terrorist Group from Turkey
TEHRAN (FNA)- Judge Yelena Lenskaya said, while reading out the decision to remand in custody a tenth accomplice in the case, Akram Azimov, the St. Petersburg metro train blast was financed by members of an international terrorist group from Turkey.

According to the available evidence Akram Azimov personally received cash in Turkey for the terrorist attack. Also, he supervised the issue of forged IDs to members of the terrorist group for their unhampered trips across borders, TASS reported.

She also said Abror Azimov, arrested earlier on suspicion of organizing the blast in St Petersburg, received the money for perpetrating the terrorist act and passed it on to the perpetrator, Akbarjon Jalilov.

The investigator did not specify Azimov’s role in the attack but said that organizers of the terror attack are being searched for in various Russian regions.

On Thursday, Moscow City's Basmanny district court put Akram Azimov to custody until June 3. The arrested man did not recognize his guilt in the courtroom.

An investigator present in the court said the search for organizers of the April 3 terrorist act in the St Petersburg metro was underway in different regions of Russia.

A blast ripped through a coach of a train moving between Tekhnologicheskiy Institut and Sennaya Ploshchad stations in the St Petersburg metro on April 3. It claimed fourteen lives and left more than fifty people wounded.

The terrorist who detonated the explosive device died, too. One more bomb was defused on Ploshchad Vosstaniya station somewhat later.

Russia's Investigative Committee identified Akbarjon Jalilov, a native of Kyrgyzstan, as the individual who committed the terrorist act. It instituted a criminal case.

On April 6, the Investigative Committee reported dentention of eight suspects in the case, both in St Petersburg and in Moscow. The suspected organizer of the blast, Abror Azimov was arrested on April 18.

The Director of Russia's FSB state security service, Alexander Bortnikov, said earlier all the suspects were members of clandestine terrorist cells.

US Spying Drone Shot Down with Russian-Made Missile over Syria
TEHRAN (FNA)- Media sources reported that the Syrian Air Defense units fired a Russian-made missile at a US spying drone flying over Lattakia province's airspace and shot it down.

The Russian-language Vestnik Mordovieh daily quoted military experts as saying that the Syrian air defense units intercepted and targeted a Predator reconnaissance drone of the US over the coastal province of Lattakia.

Based on the paper, the drone that violated Syria's airspace was, MQ-1 Predator, an American remotely piloted aircraft built by General Atomics.

The US army officials have also confirmed that they have lost connection with the drone, the paper added.

Meantime, the Turkish media reported that the US drone took off from Turkey's Incirlik airbase.

The paper added that the US spying drone was downed by the Russian-made Pechora 2 Surface-to-Air Missile systems, adding that parts of the downed US drone are scattered all over the region.

Media sources disclosed in January that a US Navy reconnaissance plane was spotted flying a few kilometers away from Russia's naval base in Tartus port in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea.

Interfax quoted western sites as saying that a P-8A Poseidon aircraft flew close to Syria’s Mediterranean coast where Russia’s naval task force operates in Tartus.

The anti-submarine US P-8A Poseidon spy plane left a US airbase in Sicily and carried out a reconnaissance mission over the Russian naval base and its adjacent marine zone in Eastern Mediterranean Sea, Interfax added.

Observers believe that the US spy planes have recently increased their flights over Syria to gather intelligence on the Syrian army and the Russian forces' moves in the region.

According to reports, on August 30, September 2, September 17 and in November the United States' P-8A Poseidon spy planes were also spotted flying toward the vicinity of the Russian airbase.

核兵器爆発の脅威は冷戦後で最も高い 国連の関係機関

UN Agency: Threat of Nuclear Weapons Detonation Highest Since Cold War
TEHRAN (FNA)- A UN-linked institute warned that the possibility of a “nuclear weapon detonation event,” is now the highest it has been since the end of the Cold War.

"The threat of a nuclear weapon detonation event in 2017 is arguably at its highest in the 26 years since the collapse of the Soviet Union,” said the UN Institute for Disarmament Research (UNIDIR), RT reported.

Nuclear deterrence was, and still is, the backbone of the military strategies of many world powers. Overall, nine states, the US, Russia, China, the UK, France, India, Pakistan, North Korea, and Israeli regime, possess more than 15,000 warheads, and global investment in the modernization and development of new, more capable and mobile nuclear weapons continues to rise.

One of the major factors threatening global security is the current state of US-Russia relations, the researchers argued.

"The return of Cold War-like confrontational postures has hindered international cooperation and confidence-building,” the UN agency's a comprehensive study said.

Comparing today’s security environment to that during the Cold War, the authors argue that the bipolar world appeared to be more predictable, and therefore more secure. The so-called mutually assured destruction (MAD) principle proved sustainable, unlike “current geopolitical complexities and expanded club of nuclear actors, which exacerbate the inherent dangers of nuclear deterrence.”

The 2010 review, which was written during the Obama administration, stated that “Russia and the United States are no longer adversaries” and listed nuclear terrorism as the biggest security threat. However, given how hostile relations between Moscow and Washington have recently become, this year’s document is expected to take a different stance.

Aside from uneasy relations between the US and Russia, the UNIDIR report cited the recent flare up in tensions on the Korean peninsula, where North Korea and the US continue to raise the stakes by flexing military muscle.

The report doesn’t see a reduction in America’s nuclear arsenal as a solution to worldwide nuclear tensions, however.

"Any weakening of the United States’ nuclear umbrella could spur further adventurism by adversaries and proliferation by allies,” the report claimed.

"Nuclear deterrence works, up until the time it will prove not to work… the risk is inherent and, when luck runs out, the results will be catastrophic,” it warned.

Russia questions watchdog’s swift identification of sarin in Syria chemical incident

The Russian military has questioned the swift conclusion of chemical weapons watchdog the OPCW, which has reported identifying sarin in samples related to an alleged attack in Syria on April 5.

The Executive Council of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) convened in the Hague on Wednesday for an update on the investigation into the reported chemical weapons attack in the town of Khan Shaykhun.

Director-General Ahmet Üzümcü told members that four OPCW designated laboratories have studied samples collected from three victims of the alleged attack during their autopsy and seven individuals undergoing treatment after surviving the incident. He said analysis of all samples indicated exposure to sarin or a sarin-like substance.

“While further details of the laboratory analyses will follow, the analytical results already obtained are
,” the official said.

The OPCW statement didn’t explain how exactly the samples were collected. The inspectors have yet to visit Khan Shaykhun, which would allow the collection of samples on the ground to confirm contamination from a chemical agent. The site is located in a rebel-controlled territory in the Idlib province. Üzümcü said such a visit would depend on the security situation and cited an attack on an OPCW fact-finding mission in May 2014.

The Russian military, however, questioned the swift analysis of the samples, saying the OPCW did not act with such speed in another incident in which a militant group reportedly used mustard gas in Aleppo.

“Russian specialists on the site of the crime [in Aleppo] collected samples of the agent, which had been delivered to representatives of the OPCW and transported to the Hague. By the way, the Syrian leadership at the time offered safety guarantees and insisted that OPCW experts visit Aleppo, but nobody came,” Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said Thursday.

“Four months later the OPCW still cannot come to a conclusion and call the mustard gas found there mustard gas, saying additional analysis is necessary,” he remarked.

The Russian military said it wanted details on who collected the samples and how they were studied at OPCW designated labs, and why the analysis in this case was completed in a much shorter space of time.

He added that if the OPCW states that sarin gas had been used in the incident, it would find it difficult to explain how White Helmet first responders survived exposure to the agent.

Footage taken at the scene in the aftermath of the alleged attack showed people from the controversial rescue group helping the victims while wearing no protective gear rated for handling sarin.

The OPCW is expected to provide a preliminary report on the incident within two weeks.

Dissident Leader: Turkey Directly Involved in Khan Sheikhoun Chemical Attack
TEHRAN (FNA)- A Turkish dissident leader revealed that the pharmaceutical companies affiliated to Recep Tayyip Erdogan's government have provided the terrorists in Syria with Sarin gas, reiterating that Ankara has been directly involved in Khan Sheikhoun chemical attack.

Sarhab Golhan, the leader of Moon and Star party, was quoted by SANA news agency as saying that Erdogan is directly involved in the chemical attack and he is "the ISIL's current leader".

"If investigations are carried out about Khan Sheikhoun incident, it will certainly reveal that Erdogan is behind it and all massacres happening in our region; the Justice and Development government opened the borders to the terrorists' easy traffic and equipped them with weapons," he added.

Golhan said that certain pharmaceutical companies close to the Justice and Development government have supplied the terrorists with Sarin gas to be used against the civilians and raise allegations against the Syrian government to provoke the international community.

Meantime, head of Turkey's Socialist Workers Party Turgut Kocak said that the same side that had provided the terrorists in Aleppo with chemical weapons supplied their comrades in Khan Sheikhoun with the same kind of weapons "and therefore, they were sent by Turkey to the Syrian city".

"We know that 90% of weapons in terrorists' hands have been sent from Turkey and we think that the terrorist groups in Idlib which are led by the Turkish intelligence agencies are the culprits behind the Khan Sheikhoun incident," he added.

In relevant remarks on Saturday, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said Damascus is 100% certain that terrorists get chemical weapons directly from Turkey.

"Directly from Turkey, and there was evidence regarding this, some of [it has] been shown on the internet a few years ago. You had many parties and parliament members in Turkey who questioned the government regarding those allegations. So, it's not something hidden," Assad told Sputnik.

He further maintained that financial, armament and logistic support for terrorists in Syria, including recruitment, is provided through Turkey.

"They don't have any other way to come from the North. So, it's a hundred percent Turkey," Assad underlined.

On April 4, the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces claimed that 80 people were killed and 200 injured in a suspected chemical attack in Khan Sheikhoun, putting the blame on the Syrian government. Damascus vehemently rejected the accusations and said militants and their allies were responsible.

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the Syrian Air Force hit a warehouse where militants stored chemical weapons, which were sent to Iraq. The Russian Foreign Ministry reminded that the Syrian government doesn't possess chemical weapons since mid-2014. Chemical weapons have been taken out of the country with the US help.

In response to the Khan Sheikhoun incident the United States launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the Syrian military airfield in Shayrat in Homs province.

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Russian fighter jets targeted a main Al-Nusra Front (also known as Fatah al-Sham Front or the Levant Liberation Board) base near a town in Southern Idlib, while military sources say the army plans to expand control to Khan Sheikhoun to allow Russian inspectors to visit the site of the recent chemical attack.

The warplanes carried out two air-to-surface missile attacks on a garrison of Tahrir al-Sham Hay'at (the Levant Liberation Board) West of the town of Khan Sheikhoun a few minutes after the terrorists approached the base, destroying the center and killing or wounding most of the militants in there.

The Al-Nusra militants form a main part of Tahrir al-Sham.

In the meantime, informed sources reported that the Syrian Army plans to continue the march in Northern Hama up to the towns of Morek in Hama and Khan Sheikhoun in Idlib to provide a chance for the Russian forces to inspect the site of the chemical incident in Khan Sheikhoun.

The sources further added that current battle will not end in Khan Sheikhoun, and will rather expand then to other towns and villages.

A Syrian military source reported earlier this month that some 22 ranking commanders of the terrorist groups were killed as their meeting came under a fierce air raid by the Russian warplanes in Idlib province.
