[At-Large] YouTube Restricted In Japan?

Several experts have confirmed the situation is very serious. You may
have heard the US military are evacuating non essential personnel as
of Yesterday. Check it out ..


I know scientists over in Japan who are recoding dangerous levels of
radiation in major cities like Tokyo. Radiation sickness has been
reported in Chiba (not sure of the spelling).

As for the original story your claim it is nonsense is ridiculous.
Unless you have been unable to deny the claim Youtube was blocked in
Japan. All I know is the US military has blocked it. Is that what your
saying is nonsense that youtube was blocked in Japan?

The original story is just about someone in Japan who has a family and
is frightened they are in harms way. He and his family can't afford to
get out of the city and he is scared and frustrated. Completely
understandable. Radiation sickness is a bummer of a way to go. And if
you survive it - the toll is for the rest of your short life. So it is
understandable the man is concerned.

It's the youtube issue that I'm curious about. Has youtube been turned
off in Japan or is the proper story the US military turned it off for
themselves. Thats what I suspect has happened.

So many frightened non essential personnel are using too much
bandwidth connecting to foreign news services on youtube. They are the
only news services in fact reporting the dangers. The American and
Japanese media are doing their best to confuse the issue instead of
reporting the facts. It's like watching a genocide comedy.

What a world ...
