Keeping Them Honest in Japan: Join the Live Chat

[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/01/02/liveblogfinal.copy.jpg]

We're Keeping Them Honest on Japan's nuclear crisis. Plus, a violent day in Syria. Protesters shot to death on the street by government security forces. Also new attacks in Libya in the besieged city of Misrata, along with new signs of cracks in Gadhafi's regime and possible signs of better organization amongst the opposition.

    This is a true form of terrorism! And this is what the U.S. has pledged to end throughout the world!

    That is so scary, I don't believe Gadhafi won't case-fire during war......... I think he have to go now!!!!!!!

    I do wonder how effective a revolution will be in the long term in Libya due to the strong association with various tribes; how can they agree on one course of action?

    Anderson how are they going to keep the reactors in japan cool if the work force is going to die from acute radiation sickness?

    That's so sad for him, he died...... I was shocked on video YouTube. 🙁

    I don't believe Gadhafi won't reject casefire during battle each other.

    @Mus What was he saying in the beginning?!

    That video was horrendous – i could not watch, but heard it. Gut wrenching.

    I have finally become confused about the situation in Lybia.
    There appears to be no more air support.
    There appear to be defections, but we cannot tell how important they really are.
    The Lybian opposition does not know how to fight or has the weapons to do so if they could.
    Each side has asked for cease fires, but neither one will accept.
    I'm confused.

    I couldn't watch it but I'm sure it was horrible. What brutality. Just one of many similar stories I'm sure. What a great price is paid to attain freedom. I hope their fight is not in vain.

    I wouldn't trust his sons. They may appear to be contrite if pressed but the future doesn't bode well for them not rising up as meglos again.

    That poor little dog! I heard he ate sausage and biscuits. Miracles will never cease. Long way out in the ocean and all by himself.

    @Megan,
    I agree with you all. It sure does sound familar, BP. The nuclear industry throughout the world uses all these disasters as a learning experience for the don't know it all. The world doesn't have a way of disposing of nuclear waste but they want to build more nuclear plants and put everybodys safety behind a dollar bill in their pocket.

    Merl,
    Good point!!!!!! I agree.

    so much blood spilled in the name of freedom, and in the name of religion – the premise is that both are worth fighting for and dying for – it moves nations and makes history

    the man who shot is a doctor as the killers saying in the same video. (this is the doctor we shot)

    It's sad to see the desperation and sacrifice involved with the nuclear crisis in Japan.

    @Janis and Star, I agree with you both, on TEMPO. No one can believe what they say, as they keep changing their stories and down play every evidence that comes out. They should be held accountable for their actions or lack of action.

    @Sharon Hastings re: TEPCO

    "Ciminally negligent" at the very least.

    I cannot think of Any way that this company can compensate its workers, the Japanese people or the rest of the world (if it comes to that).

    Outrageous!!

    April 1, 2011 at 10:13 pm |
  22. Megan Dresslar - Shoreline, WA

    Janis
    Tepco should support those workers and their families for the rest of their lives, treat all illness, educate their children, do everything.

    Hi Merl and Janis.........
    I agree completely both of you, Good point there, We need support all families together.

    It's amazing that a dog could live for three weeks without fresh water or food.

    not only cute but smart dog

    The term sarcaphagus (sp) brings chills to mind. Time to create them. Why are they constantly exposing Japan to radiation? Entomb the reactors ASAP. Japan is hurting and there isn't any start to recovery until they get these nuclear plants under control.

    Thank you Anderson and AC360 for your "Keeping them honest"

  28. Jo Ann, Ohio

    BP, Tepco, it doesn't matter what country these companies are in they are all dishonest. I wouldn't trust anything they say, esp about the food.

    April 1, 2011 at 10:10 pm |
  29. Merl, Ohio

    Hello Anderson and everyone.
    @ Janis, Tepco should support families of worker...

    I wholeheartedly agree. Those workers are running the chance of giving up their lives for all. True heroes!

    What can be done with the plants at this point? Will they continue to be productive? Will people be able to move back to the area?

  31. Nina

    What is with these global corporations? Do they all attending the same trainings? Minimize, minimize and people get sick and sometimes die because of this! I would like to see more accountability!

    Good Evening everyone, Anderson and the 360 team. Anxious to hear what is going on in Japan and the Middle East tonight. I learn so much from this program.

    April 1, 2011 at 10:06 pm |
  33. Sharon Hastings

    These huge corporations making gazillions all seem to cut corners putting their employees in danger. This Tepco sounds criminally negligent. Sound familiar?? BP, right?

    April 1, 2011 at 10:06 pm |
  34. Nicole Netherlands

    Good evening Anderson, AC360Team, everyone
    Almost ashamed I got stuck in middle east, and local news when I hear this.

    These workers are on suicide mission, to save the people of Japan, and a lot more

    Tepco should support those workers and their families for the rest of their lives, treat all illness, educate their children, do everything.

    Good evening Anderson and everyone. Happy Friday to all. There is so much going on in the world I can't keep up. This radiation crisis gets worse all the time. Those workers most probably will die from this. Japan is going through hell.

    April 1, 2011 at 10:03 pm |
  44. Mike, formerly from Syracuse

    So what dose are these workers getting Anderson?
