Well as you may know Japan has been hit by a large Tsunami - the worst it has ever seen, resulting from an earthquake to the east of the coast of Japan. Over 1000 confirmed death with tolls expected to reach over 10000. Given the population density of Japan the fact that this was not a higher number is a great testament to the civil engineers of Japan.
Japan loves its technology and one of the most high-tech ways to generate electricity is through the use of nuclear power. There was no damage to any nuclear power plants - again a testament to the civil engineers of Japan, but radiation levels around the area have increased. The population nearest the power plants were evacuated from the area while the rest of the population were told to stay indoors, but without basic utilities available that may be difficult to do. Theres also some worry that the radiation will spread to west of the United States.
Speaking of the United States some Americans on Facebook have adopted the idea of Karma and said that the Tsunami was karma’s payback for Pearl Harbor bombings by the Japanese 70 years ago (which then drove USA to be in WWII). Pearl Harbor was 70 years ago. This is an issue that would have not affected them, nor their parents, but their parent’s parents. Any yet they post on their Facebook that this was payback for that??? Forgive and forget much? What about black slavery?
BTW America did get its revenge by bombing Japan in a civilian area not once but twice causing magnitudes more death than in Pearl Harbor.
What is up with Americans and their patriotism? What do they teach you in history?
Of course this maybe just a few cases blown up in the spotlight (the media loves to do that, esp social media) and not a big deal at all.
