60 years after dropping the first two atomic weapons ever built on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, we putting nukes off the shore of Japan. Not nuclear weapons; nuclear reactors.
United States and Japanese officials have agreed to allow the Navy to station a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier in Japan for the first time, the Navy announced Thursday.This is an awesome show of trust from the people of Japan. No other nation, to my knowledge, has allowed a nuclear aircraft carrier to be stationed there permanently. Let this be a testament to other countries on how safe our nuclear program is.
Nuclear-powered warships have visited Japanese ports more than 1,200 times since 1964. The Navy said the United States has provided firm commitments to the government of Japan regarding the safe use of Japanese ports by the nuclear powered warships, and it pledged to observe strictly all safety precautions and procedures.This should also be a testament to the lefty freaks in Greenpeace as to how far they overreact. They protested nuclear carriers being stationed in San Diego when they already have one of the largest submarine bases in the nation. Subs don't run on solar power, I can tell you that much.
Kudos to you, Japan.
