"If you want the victims of gun crime to be able to sue the gun makers for damages, then let us also allow the victims of drunk driving accidents to sue the car makers and distilleries as well. While we are at it, revoke the special protection granted to vaccine makers that was passed as part of the Homeland Security Act so that people who are actually harmed by poorly made vaccines can sue the pharmaceutical companies. And, given that at least 90% of these mass shootings were committed by people either on or withdrawing from prescription anti-depressants, the victims of those shootings should be allowed to sue the pharmaceutical companies as well. Let's sue the makers of kitchen cutlery for every stabbing death. Let's sue the makers of sporting equipment for every victim beaten to death with a baseball bat, and tool companies for making the hammers used on bludgeoning deaths as well. The family of everyone who dies by electrocution should be allowed to sue the electric company. The family of everyone who dies in a fall should be allowed to sue the makers of ladders and staircases. The family of everyone who commits suicide by hanging should be allowed to sue the rope companies. " -- Michael Rivero

Fukushima has been frozen in time for more than a decade since a powerful earthquake triggered a tsunami, causing one of the worst nuclear disasters in history.

When the 9.0-magnitude quake struck on March 11, 2011, waves of more than 33ft (10 metres) overcame insufficient sea defences, destroying backup generators and triggering meltdowns in three reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi plant.

If you did not catch it let me make it clear — Israel is now claiming that Iran targeted the Dimona nuclear facility. That is going to be Israel’s propaganda spin going forward to justify the reported attack.

Israel may just have committed suicide. The Netanyahu cabinet is betting that Iran is unable to launch a massive retaliatory missile strike and that its threat to respond if Israel attacks are just hollow talk. Israel is pushing the bullshit that “this is a limited strike.” That is not how Iran views this.

Kiev forces launched a drone at the training center of Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) again, but the attack failed, the facility announced on April 18.

“The Ukrainian army has attacked the unique training center of Zaporizhzhia NPP again. The Ukrainian drone was neutralized over the roof of Building G of the Zaporizhzhia NPP’s training center, housing the world’s only full-scale reactor hall simulator. No one was injured as a result of the attack. There was no damage, either,” the facility said in a statement posted to its Telegram channel

The operator of Japan's Fukushima nuclear power plant, Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), has launched the fifth round of treated water release from the facility that is scheduled to run until May 7, Japanese news agency reported on Friday.

As part of the fifth round of water discharge, TEPCO plans to release 7,800 tonnes of treated water into the sea, while in the new fiscal year, a total of over 54,000 tonnes of water would be released, the report said.

Several statements were issued by Iranian leaders on Wednesday as they attended a military parade at a base north of Tehran which featured displays of attack drones and ballistic missiles, just days after Iran's unprecedented Saturday night attack on Israel.

The head of Iran's military, Maj. Gen. Abdolrahim Mousavi, addressed the army gathering saying, "Currently, we are in a state of readiness to deal with possible evils, and what we displayed throughout the country today was a small part of our capabilities," as cited in state media.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is worried that Israel might strike Iran’s nuclear program in response to the Iranian drone and missile attack on Israeli territory, which was a reprisal for Israel bombing Iran’s consulate in Damascus.

Russia was able to destroy a key power plant serving Kyiv because Ukraine ran out of defensive missiles, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has claimed.

Speaking to US news outlet PBS on Tuesday, Zelenskyy’s comments follow repeated warnings from his government to its allies about scarce air defences. Ukraine is desperately calling for ammunition as Russia scales up strikes on its infrastructure.

Ukraine continues its attacks on Zaporozhye nuclear power plant. International Atomic Energy Agency Director General Rafael Grossi warned that it came “quite close” to a nuclear accident on Sunday after it was attacked by drones.

Dr. Chris Busby, a physical chemist and scientific secretary of the European Committee on Radiation Risk, shares his opinion about what the non-stop Ukrainian attacks on the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant could result in with Sputnik.

Israel will launch strikes against Iran’s nuclear program in the event that Tehran retaliates for the recent attack on its embassy in Damascus, a London-based Arabic outlet has reported, citing an anonymous Western security official.
