    I don't know that country is one resilent SOB, these might be a catalyst for Japan reinventing itself again. You have to respect them on how they suffer in silence.

    It might sound weird but I think the same. If they manage to limit the nuclear devastation, Japan will emerge stronger out of this than it was before.

    Well, for almost all the time they had winds going seaward, so it definitely could be worse.

    It might sound weird, but if this earthquake was bound to happen, Japan would be my first choice. They are such a well prepared and resilient society.

    Imagine if a 9.0 hit southern California followed by a tsunami...how many would we have dead? 200,000? 500,000?

    Even in the midst of this disaster the Japanese people are showing to the world their strength and determination. They are amazing.

    Agreed. Anyone can draw a map. A map from some unspecified source is not news.

    Sorry, but according to current blowing direction of the wind, it's from the west to the east.

    Some outside-the-box thinking; What if the US let the Japanese use one nuclear-sub to power the water pumps at Fukushima?

    The Earthquake did not kill as many as the Tsunami did. Actually the US has a far more advanced science in understanding earthquakes, if you can see the damage on the Kobe Earthquake, than say the one in North ridge, the Japanese had to relearn how they make buildings and followed how they did it in the US. As for how the people would act, the LA riots and the Katrina is a bit worrisome on what would happen if society breaks down in the US. The difference really in the more individualistic nature of Americans as compared to Asians.

    A nuke powered CV is already there, so why not use that?
