Somehow The Fact That Japan is Now Dumping Water on The Nukes With Helicopters and Fire Trucks ...

... just does not make me feel much better. Tt seems to me that if any of all those "cooling systems" they keep talking about worked, this would not be required.

CNN: [7:56 a.m. ET Thursday, 8:56p.m. Thursday in Tokyo] Efforts to cool the No. 3 reactor at the earthquake-damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant by dumping water from helicopters and spraying it from the ground will continue, the plant's owner said Thursday evening.

[7:37 a.m. ET Thursday, 8:37 p.m. Thursday in Tokyo] An operation to spray water on the No. 3 nuclear reactor at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant has ended after 40 minutes, Japan's Defense Ministry says. Five fire trucks took turns spraying water for two minutes each, officials said.

So firemen in protective suits can go up there for two minutes?

Er uh no reports of Godzilla.....yet.
