Remember that Gulf Oil spill that preoccupied the news for weeks, then suddenly disappeared? Or that earthquake in Japan aeons ago that caused nuclear reactors to melt down and spew radioactivity all over the place, that also disappeared? Well, maybe you don't, but I blogged on April 22 of this year about my suspicions that maybe what was going on in Japan was a covert nuclear weapons program. The reactors were, after all, fueled both by uranium and plutonium, and plutonium is the element of choice for making the atom bomb, and the atom bomb is, of course, the necessary fuse for "the big one", the hydrogen bomb.

Well, it seems there are others who shared my suspicions about what may have been going on in Japan, and the people sharing those suspicions is a Japanese investigator named Yoichi Shimatse, and had I known of this article then, I would have shared it, but I share it now, after a night of fishing and following my initial hunch, and curiosity over why the story suddenly disappeared, shuffled off stage by the antics of the Western Powers and their inability to get rid of Mohamar Qaddafi:

Is Japan\'s Elite Hiding a Weapons Program Inside Nuclear Plants?

The key paragraphs here are these:

"A fire ignited inside the damaged housing of the Unit 4 reactor, reportedly due to overheating of spent uranium fuel rods in a dry cooling pool. But the size of the fire indicates that this reactor was running hot for some purpose other than electricity generation. Its omission from the list of electricity-generating operations raises the question of whether Unit 4 was being used to enrich uranium, the first step of the process leading to extraction of weapons-grade fissionable material.

"The bloom of irradiated seawater across the Pacific comprises another piece of the puzzle, because its underground source is untraceable (or, perhaps, unmentionable). The flooded labyrinth of pipes, where the bodies of two missing nuclear workers—never before disclosed to the press— were found, could well contain the answer to the mystery: a lab that none dare name."

Just why a reactor was "running hot" to begin with, and just why pipes from "somewhere" were spewing irradiated seawater have yet to be answered, and believe me, I searched and searched to see if there were cogent answers to Shimatsu's observations, and found none, but Shimatsu is correct: one source explaining both possibilities is a secret laboratory. Then we have to consider some strange pronouncements by Japanese politicians concerning nuclear weapons. On April 20, 2009, the United Kingdom's Daily Telegraph reported that a former conservative Japanese finance minister had openly broached the subject of an independent Japanese nuclear deterrent:

Japan \'should develop nuclear weapons\' to counter North Korea threat

This wasn't the first time a Japanese politician commented on the need for an independent nuclear deterrent for Japan, whose people for understandable reasons largely reject it. With Japan, we are not dealing with crazed ayatollahs in Iran fiddling with uranium enrichment, nor even with second-string nuclear powers such as India and Pakistan, but with a nation that could arm itself to the teeth with nuclear and thermonuclear weapons in a matter of weeks, and which possesses the technology to deliver them almost anywhere in the region. Perhaps there is a hidden reason that the Japanese nuclear meltdown has so completely disappeared in our media... My bet is, that there is.

    The Japanese as a group are hypersensitive to any discussion of atomic bombs, given their tragic firsthand knowledge of the effects thereof. Every year there is a memorial service in Hiroshima for the victims of the August 6 bombing, and thousands attend, including numerous foreigners (I attended the 60th anniversary service in 2005). Peace, not war, is the entire emphasis.
    Given this scenario, I find Dr. Farrell’s musings likely spot on. It would be unthinkable to announce such a project in public, but the Japanese are less and less willing to wait for the inheritors of MacArthur to come to their rescue in the event of an attack. Indeed, they are engaged in talks to severely limit the number of US occupying forces in Japan. Surely they have a well thought out Plan B.

    What about Monster Island?
    Rumor has it that Godzilla, Rodan, and Mothra, escaped AGAIN!
    And the Mysterians are threatening to re-invade Japan, so for heavens sakes don’t begrudge those Japanese a nuke, or two.

    Secret enriching of uranium and other such projects are quite likely to happen at nuclear facilities – the security is high, and the corporations involved are usually also in the arms, sorry “defense,” business.

    It is also not uncommon for certain intelligence folks to have a presence at some (if not all) such facilities, further adding to the impossibility of hiding it completely.

    That is in this country, and I doubt Japan is any different. Given their long history of feudalism, I am sure they also have a long history of covert operations and secret agencies.

    Nuclear materials are particularly sensitive to scalar EM, according to Bearden, and the tidal wave creation may have just been cover for an EM attack on Japan’s attempt at a home-grown nuke program. Obviously, the nature of what was going on there would have added a huge measure to the pressure and difficulty for the Japanese government in dealing with the situation.

    It could quite easily have been more than just knocking out a nuke plant – it could have been an even stronger message on the covert level if there was a weapons program in place there.

    The question is whether it was the Japanese government’s program or some other group’s.

    Ah, sweet intrigue…

    Can’t resist throwing more kindling onto the “conjecture fire”…if you’ve read Ben Fulford, he has maintained that the Rockefeller interests have ruled Japan since the end of WW2. Perhaps the “servants” had been doing this covert enrichment in the many reactors around Japan and “the boss” found out. Boss man sends thugs over to break up the racket, so to speak, which causes a lot of mess. All the better for Mr R. since global genocide is on his To Do list.
    Consider further that Japan possesses lots of space exploration technology (like rockets, etc), which just so happen to be great delivery vehicles for hot pkgs of plutonium et al. Enough reason to try and strike them down.

    So Japan joins Isreal and god know whoelse in having a secret nucleae weapons program it seems that nuclear programs are proliefarating around the world. This is a serious problem that must be dealt with immediately to assure the safety of the world. This especialily since Japan neighbors are also in possession of these weapons. Sabotage of their weapons program may drive it underground which would agrevate the problem.

    I think the coverup concerning Fukishima and the severity of the damage, the amounts of radiation released and the timing of the releases is the main problem. I really refuse to believe that incompetence is so rampant in the nuclear industry. Japanese authority, TEPCO officials, and United States authorities, along with apparently Canadians have all lied about the radiation hazards that we face even over here, delayed and distorted facts about what, when, where, and how things have happened. For a large part Japan, and especially the Japanese people are screwed certainly over the long term, this stuff isn’t going away anytime soon. Those officials have lied to their own people. It’s getting to the point they can’t sell anything to anybody else due to the radioactivity found in or on it. They will have to eat their own stuff be it radioactive beef and rice or do without because they will have no money to import safe foods. This just adds to the world food supply shortages that all the “Wild” weather has brought to us. As for a secret lab and or weapons—well I doubt it was a secret from everyone. If I were a small country like Japan sitting so close to China and Russia I’d want an arsenal of them–handy like. But conspiracies or no, this is a severe problem–for them and the rest of us– and we need our GOVs to be honest with all of us–now. Just look at the cancer rates pre 50’s and 50’s till now–look at them in another 30 years from now –if you are still around!!

    This post is the first I have heard about this particular “conspiracy theory.” Seeing your reference to your April 22 post, the first thing I did was to go back and read that post. Unfortunately, and maybe it’s just me, I couldn’t find it. Oh well. Forging ahead, I then Googled Yoichi Shimatse, whom I had never heard of either, and via the fourth link down there is an article.

    In any case, I had NOT, until today, even considered such a thing as a secret Japanese nuclear weapon(s) program of any kind much less at Fukushima. (As I used to say when I worked in Dealey Plaza, “Every time I think I’ve heard them all, I hear a new one.”) Yet it makes perfectly good sense now that I think of it and your perspective on world events such as this is one of the reasons that I have become an enthusiastic reader of your blog, books, and a dedicated follower of the Nefarium on a daily basis. Thank you for keeping me informed.

    I much more enjoy watching you on my computer than I do news on the television, which I NEVER watch anymore (Well, maaaybe some reruns of ‘Two and A Half Men.’). [The downside is that watching you smoke makes ME want a cigarette and I am trying to quit. LOL.]

    Now, to the point:

    Inasmuch as ‘The Powers That Be’ use hyper-dimensional models it appears to me that there are several reasons for bumping the Fukushima story off the news. Briefly, one is that a quickening of disasters appears to be part of their plan so that people tend to become numb to such things and also to keep people disoriented. However, as I surely now believe and agree with you that Fukushima was involved in a secret nuclear weapons program, ‘The Powers That Be’ do NOT want this to become common public knowledge.

    Personally, given the state of world affairs, I endorse Japan’s efforts to arm themselves. The only thing that concerns me is that when TSHTF Japan might decide to toss a couple of them our way.

    Could Japan be enriching uranium for Iran in some soet of deal…. say for oil??

    • Joseph P. Farrell on August 12, 2011 at 7:29 am

      An interesting question. I very much doubt it. The Japanese, if they have a covert nuclear weapons program, are likely to retain their public non-proliferation stance, and keep a VERY tight control over any nuclear weapons they may have or produce.

    Note: “northern Korea” and the beginnings of a Japanese atomic weapons program.

    Something powderized that reactor’s containment building–that act is still much more interesting than the idea that Japan may have been building atomic weapons. It’s been well understood for 40 years that Japan could readily build atomic weapons quickly if they wanted to. Which party disrupted the matter of that building?

    Does North Korea even know how to detonate an atomic weapon? They seem to have had some trouble. North Korea, here, seems like a misdirect.
