A co-worker's husband who is an Army doctor in Iraq told her he saw photos shortly after. She said he described a head closeup that showed one eye opened but only white was visible, the other eye was just a mangled, bloody socket, and there was a bullet wound in the forehead.

The exclusion or evacuation zone just keeps on getting larger. Where and when will it stop? It's got a life of its own.

In safety meetings we are told not to go under a desk, not to go under a door frame...just get out of the building if possible. Or lie down next to a heavy mass, like a stack of copy paper.

And yes this seems to be a smaller one, only 4 axles on the trailer. The 70Z trailer on which the unit sits is supported by 5 axles. The tractor-trailer that tows it has three drive axles at the support point and two axles for the front end of it. That's how you get 10 axles.

They cost $2M+ each. And will not be returned to the U.S. because of radiation contamination.

Livinginokinawa - "The Japanese pay for and provide 100% of the utilities to the bases as well."

You'd better check your facts on this. In fact the pact was recently reapproved. I don't know where you get your facts from, but obviously from someone who doesn't know. I deal with it at work. And I said Japan provides the bases, and it implies the Japanese workers are included - a boon to Japanese workers by the way. And is Japan paying for all the aircraft, helicopters, ships (like the carriers helping)and equipment that is there? No way Jose! Japan is fortunate they are there and immediately available.

elbudamexicano - "most of the taxes paying for the US army, marines, airforce, navy etc..is paid by the JAPANESE"

Wrong! Japan is only providing the bases and 70% of utilities used. The U.S. is paying the pay of the Army, Air Force and Navy (Marines are under them).

So all 50,000 troops stationed in Japan should do relief work? What about maintaing some of the deterence that they are there for in the first place.

These coastal towns should have followed what Okinawa has done. Almost all buildings are earthquake protected - basically concrete or concrete block construction. And I must add typhoon proof.

I wouldn't worry of these "carrier killers". The U.S. has probably developed or finalizing devlopment of a solution to them.
