Dog from Chernobyl with mutations due to Radioactivity
Today, in Fukushima, we face a new difficulty: Japan is not a totalitarian state. They can't force their soldiers to go sacrifice themselves. At the moment, there are 50 workers at Fukushima trying to prevent the maximum credible accident, but as we saw from Chernobyl, it takes many more than just 50. Alone, they can't save Fukushima, and if they do, it'll be pure luck.
So what should Japan do now?
What should any liberal democracy do in case of a nuclear meltdown?
