    Default Navy sailors have radiation sickness after Japan rescue

    The fallout of those four days spent off the Fukushima coast has been tragic to many of the 5,000 sailors who were there.

    At least 70 have been stricken with some form of radiation sickness, and of those, “at least half . . . are suffering from some form of cancer,” their lawyer, Paul Garner, told The Post Saturday.

    “We’re seeing leukemia, testicular cancer and unremitting gynecological bleeding requiring transfusions and other intervention,” said Garner, who is representing 51 crew members suing the Tokyo Electric Power Co., which operates the Fukushima Daiichi energy plant.

    God that's terrible. Hopefully between our government and theirs they can figure out how to take care of these poor sailors.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    “And then we couldn’t go anywhere. Japan didn’t want us in port, Korea didn’t want us, Guam turned us away. We floated in the water for two and a half months,” until Thailand took them in, she said.


    Guam wouldn't take them in? Guam? if that's true then, fuck you, Guam.

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    The US government does such a great job with our veterans that I am sure they will be taken care of....
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!
