    Okay, the Tree-huggers want us to get rid of our nuke plants. Germany is shutting down theirs and doing a full review, everyone is worried about nuclear energy in the free world, but nobody give a damned that Iran is still building theirs and doing so in a haphazard manner by some reports. They're basically building theirs with bailing-wire and ball-bearings.

    Hasn't anyone taken this into account??

    If people in California are worried about radiation reaching them from Japan, why not worry about Iran's nuclear energy program?

    It's hard to believe nobody noticed this.

    A lot of people were fooled into thinking nuclear power was foolproof.

    Japan proves this to be un-factual. The biggest problem with nuclear power is human error.

    Not anyone with only the most vague education on the subject. And NO expert has ever claimed it's "foolproof."

    "A lot MORE people" have irrational, idiotic fear of nuclear power, because they are conditioned to have.

    But of course, you didn't answer the OP's question.

    Well it seems human error is a major concern in Iran.

    Intentional sabotage is another.

    Forget about the threat of WMDs. This is a worrisome prospect and nobody even broaches the subject.

    The Russians learned a lesson with Chernobyl, but the Iranians are trying to learn as they go.

    Guess they figure the risk is worth it just as long as they get their big bang-bang.

    humanity has become pussies and cowards. The damn quake was a 9.0 and the nuke plant was designed for a 8.2 quake...No fucking crack within the reactor or anything even after being hit by a 30 foot tsunami...My friends; no, I wouldn't put one on a mega thrust fault like the one off oregon and washington, but most of this country is safe. This is from a 40 year old design too...It was the generator that fucked up.

    We have become a nation chicken shits that don't take risk anymore. We don't deserve to be a super power.

    Iran as long as it is for power...I don't have a problem with it if that remains so. We should be ready to nuke them if they use nukes. MAD my friends. SHIT!

    Wonder how theirs compares to the first of ours? Time will tell I suppose. Do we hold them up to our safety standards? To some extent we subsidize safety standards in the third world. Should we do this for Iran?

    What countries do not have atomic power?........If Myanmar went to build a nuclear power plant I suppose we would help.

    (In particular for Iran I am still as for bombing it with the excuse to the UN of "We don't trust them, right or wrong" as anything else, just making conversation as safety seems to be the concern here)

    It should be up to a nation to choose if they went nuke power or not.
