1. Plutonium releases as advised by the Japanese Government and TEPCO (see previous posts)

with translation: On May 11, the radioactivity exceeds government standards was detected in tea plantation planted in the city of Kanagawa Prefecture Minamiashigara, with high levels of cesium detected. Additionally, a certain food manufacturing company conducted a survey by themselves. In a rice field, more than 50 kilometers away from the Fukushima power plant, there was found very high levels of radiation much different from the official numbers the government announced.
High concentrations of plutonium from the soil of rice field 50 km or more distant primary

According to the food manufacturers, they will not publish their results at the moment due to the large influence that high concentrations of plutonium that were detected will have. It is likely [based on the farmers refusal to release the results] that very high concentrations of plutonium were detected in the soil of the rice fields.

On the other hand in turns out on May 12 TEPCO announced that it might have a hole in the reactor of Unit 1 of Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

If it is true that means the must continue to supply water to cool the fuel rods indefinitely and there is a risk of contamination water with high levels of radioactivity will continue flowing into the sea water.

While previously announced that the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant was fit after the previous steam explosion, in fact it continues to release radioactive contamination. There is also remains a hazard of a higher probability that new steam explosion will occur.

The No. 3 nuclear power plant Fukushima Daiichi was driving pluthermal is because it was mixed with plutonium at a higher rate for fuel, because of the plutonium the Fukushima disaster is much worse than the accident at Three Mile Island and Chernobyl by a long arm and a leg because of the plutonium 4000 of 20,000 half-life and another Risk of contamination spread. end quote

Government of Japan and USA and TEPCO and GE must have all known this since March 2011.

Quote:

TOKYO (Kyodo) — The government has detected plutonium apparently from the crippled Fukushima Daiichi power plant outside the compound of the plant for the first time, science ministry officials said Friday.

The plutonium was detected at six locations in Fukushima Prefecture, including Iitate village around 45 kilometers northwest of the Fukushima complex, they said, adding the amounts were small and posed no danger to health.

The radioactive substance may have been carried by vapor or fine particles from the nuclear plant, said an official of Tokyo Electric Power Co., the operator of the plant.

Plutonium has an extremely long half-life and is associated with a high risk of cancer if it enters the human body by breathing or other means. As plutonium is heavy, it does not spread far.

The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology also detected radioactive strontium at various locations including one around 80 km from the plant.

See previous post.

Next: comparing the Fukushima plutonium map with the Taranaki forbidden zone, Maralinga nuclear test site, South Australia. One plutonium site is declared off limits effectively forever, the other, Fukushima, is subject to watered down evacuation and as of yesterday, forced return of people to now abandon evac zones.

and:

https://nuclearhistory.wordpress.com/2011/10/01/plutonium-strontium-89-strontium-90-found-off-site-at-fukushima/

prior to this, there was a phalanx of announcements by the Japanese government relating to the identification of neptunium many kms from the Fuk reactors. Some of these announcements denied the presence of plutonium offsite from fuk, even though neptunium is the parent of plutonium.

Some of these announcements ignored neptunium’s progeny product (Pu) completely.

For example, if the questioner really wants to track the reality of the Fuk deception re radionuclide releases as they relate to plutonium, the questioner should consult http://enenews.com/mag-large-quantity-of-neptunium-239-flew-at-least-60km-from-fukushima-meltdowns-decays-into-plutonium-239

which cites;

Nikkan SPA Magazine: Researcher Says Large Amount of Neptunium-239 Also in Date City, Fukushima, EX-SKF, September 12, 2011:

From Nikkan SPA September 13 issue (part on Date City only):

The email began thus:

“I heard it directly from a university researcher whose specialty is radiation measurement. Neptunium, the nuclide that decays into plutonium, flew at least to Iitate-mura [35km from meltdowns] and Date City [60km from meltdowns] in large quantity. The current survey method focuses only on gamma ray, and all it detects is radioactive cesium. The real danger is alpha-nuclides, which continues to be ignored. Iitate-mura may be being betrayed again…” end quote. This seems to be one of the earliest disclosures of the transuranics being present off site from Fuk. As the MOx fuel is made from Australian uranium, I have taken an interest in this, as the fuel is not covered by US-Japan plutonium control obligations protocols, but Australian-Japan agreements. It is “Australian Obligated plutonium” which is present in the MOx.

As for the actual fuel being found offsite from Fuk, I refer to the New Type Times report of a fuel rods being ejected into the now no go zone around Fuk.

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/04/06/world/asia/06nuclear.html?pagewanted=all which states: “The document also suggests that fragments or particles of nuclear fuel from spent fuel pools above the reactors were blown “up to one mile from the units,” and that pieces of highly radioactive material fell between two units and had to be “bulldozed over,” presumably to protect workers at the site. The ejection of nuclear material, which may have occurred during one of the earlier hydrogen explosions, may indicate more extensive damage to the extremely radioactive pools than previously disclosed. ” end quote.

I am not inclined to do ALL of the questioner’s research on an upaid basis. So as far as plutonium releases from Fukushima reactors I’ll leave it at that unless he wants to send me a bank cheque for $30,000 US. He should learn to read, it would be cheaper.

I will update this post with the answers to the rest of his questions after I have had a meal and rest break, if that’s ok with him or her. Yet another pro-nuker expert who doesnt know reality imo.
Conclusion to question 1:
The plutonium releases are acknowledged by many sources of high provenance.
“What if you don’t like the answers?” huh? It is undsoweiter who won’t like the answers. Noone likes the reality anyway, except nuclear experts paid to misinform.

Question 2. ” which yakusa is being accused of diverting nuclear materials.”

The first source I came across which ties the Yakuza to TEPCO is “The Yakuza and the Nuclear Mafia: Nationalization Looms for TEPCO” by Jake Adelstein, published by the Atlantic Wire at http://www.theatlanticwire.com/global/2011/12/yakuza-and-nuclear-mafia-nationalization-looms-tepco/46803/ Adelstien cites the book “Yakuza and The Nuclear Industry: Diary of An Undercover Reporter Working at the Fukushima Plant (ヤクザと原発-福島第一潜入記-鈴木-智彦) which he describes as “in which a former yakuza fan magazine editor Tomohiko Suzuki reports on the nuclear business-industrial-political and media complex in Japan known as the “nuclear mafia” and Japan’s actual mafia: the yakuza. The book is already generating controversy and renewed examination of Japan’s “dark empire” and its ties to the underworld. It presents more solid pieces of evidence that Japan’s nuclear industry is a black hole of criminal malfeasance, incompetence, and corruption.”
and “The Fukushima plant is located in the turf of the Sumiyoshi-kai, which is the second largest yakuza group in Japan with roughly 12,000 members; it has a well-known office in Tokyo’s Ginza District and operates under the banner Hama Enterprise. One mid-level executive in the organization even defends the role of his members in the Fukushima disaster. “The accident isn’t our fault,” he said. “It’s TEPCO’s fault. We’ve always been a necessary evil in the work process. In fact, if some of our men hadn’t stayed to fight the meltdown, the situation would have been much worse. TEPCO employees and the Nuclear Industry Safety Agency inspectors mostly fled; we stood our ground.”

Thus, in the article I cite at https://nuclearhistory.wordpress.com/2011/12/30/the-tepco-sacred-cow-linked-to-crime-and-cant-afford-justice-for-its-victims-the-atlantic-wire/
the group specifically mentioned is Sumiyoshi-kai

As to the actual diversion of the nuclear materials, my position is that a specific reading of history indicates that diversion of nuclear material, actual or potential, was a prime reason for the establishment of the Japanese nuclear industry by the USA in the first instance. The IAEA has actually recently voiced official concern regarding security of Japanese nuclear material as a result of the disclosures made by many people. for example:
https://nuclearhistory.wordpress.com/2011/12/16/iaea-conveys-grave-concern-over-unreported-nuclear-substances-from-japan/ citing http://mdn.mainichi.jp/mdnnews/news/20111216p2g00m0dm032000c.html which states in part: TOKYO (Kyodo) — The International Atomic Energy Agency has conveyed to Japan its grave concern over not being informed about nuclear substances found in the waste of domestic facilities subject to IAEA inspections, government officials said Thursday.

The IAEA expressed this to Japan in February and has made a rare request to also examine waste that is usually not subject to its inspections, the officials said.

The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology subsequently conducted a probe of 262 facilities nationwide and discovered more large quantities of unaccounted-for nuclear material.” …”In October last year, large quantities of unreported highly enriched uranium and plutonium were found in the nuclear waste at the Japan Atomic Energy Agency’s Oarai Research and Development Center in Ibaraki Prefecture, the officials said.”

I conclude therefore that there is a long standing severe problem with unaccounted stockpiling of nuclear substances available for diversion outside of Japan’s non-proliferation obligations. And the IAEA agrees.

As to the role of a third force available to actually or potentially divert the substances, it is my view that an informed view of history enables one to PROPOSE (I have never said diversion has actually occurred, merely that a third force would be able to divert the unacconted nuclear material and the role of the Yakuza in the nuclear industry is establsihed. (see above) Therefore, the Yakuza may be used as the “fall guys” because the USA established the Japanese nuclear industry to serve the strategic interets of the USA. Why would the method by which Japan boils water to turn turbines to generate electricity be of crucial interest to the USA? To answer this, I refer to the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists as follows:
(https://nuclearhistory.wordpress.com/2011/12/31/japans-nuclear-history-in-perspective-bulletin-of-the-atomic-scientists/

Japan’s nuclear history in perspective: Eisenhower and atoms for war and peace
By Peter Kuznick | 13 April 2011

“The United States heavily promoted nuclear energy in Japan after World War II, and, despite an initially reluctant public, the industry eventually flourished.
President Dwight Eisenhower’s promises of peaceful nuclear energy applications masked a huge increase in the US arsenal, as well as an increased reliance on nuclear weapons in war planning.
The catastrophe at Fukushima could lead to a reassessment of nuclear energy in Japan that leads the country to reject the perceived necessity of the US nuclear umbrella.”…”But Japan’s antinuclearism has always rested upon a Faustian bargain, marked by dependence on the United States, which has been the most unabashedly pro-nuclear country on the planet for the past 66 years. It is in the strange relationship between these two oddly matched allies that the roots and meaning of the Fukushima crisis lay buried.”…”Eisenhower decided that the best way to destroy that taboo was to shift the focus from military uses of nuclear energy to socially beneficial applications. Stefan Possony, Defense Department consultant to the Psychological Strategy Board, had argued: “the atomic bomb will be accepted far more readily if at the same time atomic energy is being used for constructive ends” (p. 156). On December 8, 1953, Eisenhower delivered his “Atoms for Peace” speech at the United Nations. He promised that the United States would devote “its entire heart and mind to find the way by which the miraculous inventiveness of man shall not be dedicated to his death, but consecrated to his life.” He pledged to spread the benefits of peaceful atomic power at home and abroad.”…”But selling this idea to the Japanese people would not be so easy. When the US Embassy, US Information Service (USIS), and CIA launched their vigorous campaign to promote nuclear energy in Japan, they turned to Matsutaro Shoriki, the father of Japanese baseball, who ran the Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper and the Nippon Television Network. After two years’ imprisonment as a Class-A war criminal, Shoriki had been released without trial; his virulent anti-communism helped redeem him in American eyes (see Tetsuo Arima, “Shoriki’s Campaign to Promote Nuclear Power in Japan and CIA Psychological Warfare,” unpublished paper presented at Tokyo University of Economics, November 25, 2006). Shoriki’s newspaper agreed to co-sponsor the much-hyped US exhibit welcoming the atom back to Japan on November 1, 1955 with a Shinto purification ceremony in Tokyo. The US ambassador read a message from Eisenhower declaring the exhibit “a symbol of our countries’ mutual determination that the great power of the atom shall henceforward be dedicated to the arts of peace.”

(And so, the use of a specific criminal Japanese national, a class A war criminal who, though jailed for 2 years, was spared a trial by the US, as was common under MacArthur, especially in relation to former members of Unit 731, in the service of a Japanese nuclear industry was in fact a first step in the construction of that industry. The modern role of the Yakuza in the Japanese nuclear industry thus has a precedent which served US strategic interests.)

continuing the quote: “Such exultation proved premature. Antinuclear organizing by left-wing political parties and trade unions resonated with the public. An April 1956 USIS survey found that 60 percent of Japanese believed nuclear energy would prove “more of a curse than a boon to mankind” and only 25 percent thought the United States was “making sincere efforts” at nuclear disarmament. The Mainichi newspaper blasted the campaign: “First, baptism with radioactive rain, then a surge of shrewd commercialism in the guise of ‘atoms for peace’ from abroad.” The newspaper called on the Japanese people to “calmly scrutinize what is behind the atomic energy race now being staged by the ‘white hands’ in Japan.”

But intensified USIS activities over the coming years began to bear fruit. A classified report on the US propaganda campaign showed that in 1956, 70 percent of Japanese equated “atom” with “harmful,” but by 1958, the number had dropped to 30 percent. Wanting their country to be a modern scientific-industrial power and knowing Japan lacked energy resources, the public allowed itself to be convinced that nuclear power was safe and clean. It had forgotten the lessons of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

In 1954, the Japanese government began funding a nuclear research program. In December 1955, it passed the Atomic Energy Basic Law, establishing the Japan Atomic Energy Commission (JAEC). Shoriki became minister of state for atomic energy and first chair of the JAEC. Japan purchased its first commercial reactor from Britain but quickly switched to US-designed light water reactors. By mid-1957, the government had contracted to buy 20 additional reactors.

In the United States, the AEC aggressively marketed nuclear power as a magic elixir that would power vehicles, feed the hungry, light the cities, heal the sick, and excavate the planet. Eisenhower unveiled plans for an atomic-powered merchant ship and an atomic airplane. In July 1955, the United States generated its first commercial nuclear power. In October 1956, Eisenhower informed the United Nations that the United States had agreements with 37 nations to build atomic reactors and was negotiating with 14 more.”

Let me restate something with emphasis: “When the US Embassy, US Information Service (USIS), and CIA launched their vigorous campaign to promote nuclear energy in Japan, they turned to Matsutaro Shoriki, the father of Japanese baseball, who ran the Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper and the Nippon Television Network. After two years’ imprisonment as ,a Class-A war criminal Shoriki had been released without trial; his virulent anti-communism helped redeem him in American eyes (see Tetsuo Arima, “Shoriki’s Campaign to Promote Nuclear Power in Japan and CIA Psychological Warfare,” unpublished paper presented at Tokyo University of Economics, November 25, 2006)”

and

“In 1954, the Japanese government began funding a nuclear research program. In December 1955, it passed the Atomic Energy Basic Law, establishing the Japan Atomic Energy Commission (JAEC). Shoriki became minister of state for atomic energy and first chair of the JAEC.

Thus, the use of a criminal by the USA to promote its goal of a nuclear Japan resulted in that criminal becoming the first chair of the JAEC. The culture of criminal involvement in the Japanese nuclear industry was formalised at the very inception of that industry. So what exactly did Shoriki do to merit the classification of “Class A War criminal and what sort of back channel was the USA possibly setting up by using a such a puppet (totally dependent upon the largess of US for his freedom due to his war crimes) as Shoriki?

Who was he?

Matsutaro Shoriki, formerly of the Japanese secret police, was at first classified as a “Class A” war criminal – one of a handful of Japanese political and military leaders accused of planning and leading unprovoked war.

Suddenly, however, Matsutaro was released without trial, returning to run Japan’s bestselling, Right-leaning newspaper. Founded in 1874, the Yomiuri Shimbun is one of the oldest newspapers in Japan and has maintained a paying readership of 10 million-plus since the war, when Toru Shoriki’s father built it up into the popular, dogmatic read it is today. ” Source: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/obituaries/finance-obituaries/8709915/Toru-Shoriki

(Here, I would add that the role of the Japanese section of it’s Secret Police which was known as the Toku during WW2 was responsible for the interogation and torture of Japanese scientists who refused to cooperate with the 3 (Army, Navy, Airforce) (F-go, N-go and one other) Japanese nuclear weapons programs which Japan operated until disbanding them, ironically or not, in July 1945. (and that is another story) Some documents from the Japanese nuclear weapons program confiscated by the US in 1945 are intermingled with those of the Unit 731 Japanese biological and chemical weapons program awaiting cataloguing in the US LIbrary of Congress as mandated by the Japanese Imperial Army Disclosure Act, US Senate, November 10, 1999. This act mandates that these documents, which were used at Dugway and the Pentagon in pursuit of the US NBC program, had been progressively destroyed. (Senator Feinstein’s November 10, 1999 floor statement).
That the USA paid Unit 731 for this information, and rewarded Unit 731 members by their appointment to executive positions in Green Cross and Mitsubishi shows the priorities the US pursued during its occupation of Japan. The role of the Secret Police in suppressing anti-war anti-fascist people in Japan is barely mentioned in history. Such people were largely left wing. I can find only one reference to a spy ring involving a Japanese citizen resident in Japan acting against Japanese fascism and militarism during World War 2, and that spy ring was Soviet organised and highly successful.

The existence of Western Allied organised or supported Japan based spy rings or intelligence assets in Japan remains a complete mystery, as far as I can see. However, Matsutaro Shoriki, formerly of the Japanese secret police, would have been well placed to known the salient themes, at least to much information which, at war’s end, became US property in its pursuit of containing the USSR. Namely, the pursuit of nuclear weapons, radiological weapons, and biological and chemical weapons. The propaganda of the Pacific War was that there was no worthy Japanese citizen. That there was no internal opposition to the war within Japan. This propaganda is patently false. And the main opposition to the war with the USA and its allies within Japan came from the Japanese Left. Thus, the usefulness, and potential threat, posed by the knowledge of Matsutaro Shoriki. Along with freedom and usefulness, came a gag order I propose.

Whatever my views on the matter, the record is clear. The first Chair of the Japanese Atomic Energy Commission, established in 1955 was the Class A War Criminal,
Matsutaro Shoriki, never brought to open trial and in fact, after two years of “quiet time” was released and rewarded and engaged in pursuits in service of US strategic interests in the context of the Cold War.

The roots of the Japanese Nuclear Industry lie in criminality, for a criminal headed the industry. But that is not all.
As a senior Secret Police member, during the war and after his release, Matsutaro Shoriki, would be expected to have extensive intelligence and contacts with the Japanese criminal underworld, including the Yakuza. The very organisation MacArthur used as an intelligence source during the Occupation of Japan. “‘The yakuza fared well under the American occupation. The American military disarmed the citizenry but weren’t able to disarm the criminal underworld. As a result the yakuza ran roughshod over the law-abiding populace. While the Americans jailed some crime figures, one man was actually working with the intelligence community to combat Communism. His name was Yoshio Kodama and he is recognized as the liaison between the gangsters, spies, and politicians.’” The Yakuza by Scott M. Deitche
and

“For historian John W. Dower,

Even Japanese peace activists who endorse the ideals of the Nuremberg and Tokyo charters, and who have labored to document and publicize Japanese atrocities, cannot defend the American decision to exonerate the emperor of war responsibility and then, in the chill of Cold war, release and soon afterwards openly embrace accused right-wing war criminals like the later prime minister Kishi Nobusuke.[31] In retrospect, apart from the military officer corps, the purge of alleged militarists and ultranationalists that was conducted under the Occupation had relatively small impact on the long-term composition of men of influence in the public and private sectors. The purge initially brought new blood into the political parties, but this was offset by the return of huge numbers of formally purged conservative politicians to national as well as local politics in the early 1950s. In the bureaucracy, the purge was negligible from the outset… In the economic sector, the purge similarly was only mildly disruptive, affecting less than sixteen hundred individuals spread among some four hundred companies. Everywhere one looks, the corridors of power in postwar Japan are crowded with men whose talents had already been recognized during the war years, and who found the same talents highly prized in the “new” Japan.[32]” Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Occupation_of_Japan

“According to David M. Rosenfeld:

Not only did Occupation censorship forbid criticism of the United States or other Allied nations, but the mention of censorship itself was forbidden. This means, as Donald Keene observes, that for some producers of texts “the Occupation censorship was even more exasperating than Japanese military censorship had been because it insisted that all traces of censorship be concealed. This meant that articles had to be rewritten in full, rather than merely submitting XXs for the offending phrases.”
—Donald Keene, quoted in Dawn to the West” ibid.

On the face of it, in the context of the history as reported by the sources above, one cannot discount that the USA, in pursuit of its interests within the context of the Cold War, saw a nuclear industry in Japan, under the control of its agents and puppets, including class A war criminals and organised crime rings, may have created a secret back channel by which nuclear fuel suitable for processing into weapons fuel could be on tap as a foil to growing Communist stockpiles of similar weapons. Japan then may not have been a US gun platform in that era in exactly the same way Israel might be seen as being at that time, but as a weapons fuel production system for use via the back channel if needed. Further, as a Western nuclear asset, Japan and specifically its nuclear facilities became targets of the enemy. Thus missiles which otherwise would have been aimed at the USA were aimed at Japan. In much the same way as missiles were and maybe still are, aimed at US assests here in Australia. The flip side of the old pea and shell game is to dilute the enemy ability to concentrate fire power on any crucial target, such as the continental USA.

And with that I conclude my response to Question 2. Conclusion: The USA used criminals from the very inception of the Japanese nuclear industry and modern researchers have found that the link between crime and nuclear industry still exists as a part of nuclear culture in Japan. Nuclear substances of grave concern have been reported and the IAEA has recently and very belatedly expressed grave concern. The back channel for the supply of supplementary material for processing into weapon grade fuel or for radiological warfare created by the USA under the guise of “atoms for peace” may still exist and in this context the back channel from the Japanese end may no longer be under US control. In the context of Iran – Japan relations, which is close on all levels, back channel history implies may exist may in fact serve Japan – Iran interests instead of Japan – US interests. And this may explain many of the actions and respopnses of Japanese nuclear authorities to the early US Fukushima interventions and the control of the information obtained and released by the USA.

Feel free to argue, undsoweiter. These are findings of history within the context of my world view and opinion.

Dispute the fact in futility. Argue the best outcome in response to my bleak outlook. Quickly man, your Navy is busy trying to contain Iran, US troops are out of Iraq, Israel, if it is going to strike, may be freer now to do so. So hurry up man. Argue why is insignificant that prior to an American bomb, there was first built a reactor, ditto for Britain, ditto for France, ditto for USSR, ditto for China, Ditto for India, ditto for Pakistan and ditto probably for Iran and Japan, since the 1960s has also had the capability to build one. Does a Japanese weapon program exist? Conventionally, in the context of Japan’s 55 reactors, any country in the nuclear weapons club would happy to have 1. possession or influence over the industry 2. A back channel to its acknowledged poorly controlled transuranics. So poorly controlled for so many years, with so many researchers reporting it, that in the context of the events of 2011, the IAEA has finally been forced to act and formally advise Japan and the world of the concern.

1. Plutonium has been released from the Fukushima reactors.
2. Criminal elements were employed in Japanese nuclear industry since in its inception.
3. The only strategic value of nuclear reactors is the production of transuranics upon which
nuclear weapons production relies.

Please argue in response undsoweiter. You probably don’t like my answers. If Groves was still alive you might able to ask him why CP 1, Hanford and Oak Ridge were built. It wasnt for electricity.

The full suite of functions of Fukushima and the rest of them is not known. If you claim to know that the Japanese reactors are incapable of aiding the growth of the global weapons grade material, please show your sources.
