and on top of everything else...

I just learned that Japan is planning to dump 1.25 million tons of radioactive waste water from the 2011 Fukushima disaster into the surrounding ocean.  Korea, which is always looking for a reason to despise Japan, is understandably unhappy because of the probable effects on Korean waters:  seafood is a huge industry in both Koreas.

The South China Morning Post has more, including reasons for why Japan is planning this massive dump.  My take:  Japan is bored of its current illegal whaling and wants to hunt bigger whales, hence the current drive to spread the radioactive love around.
