First, the U.S. was contaminated in the 1950's and 60's when nuclear bombs were detonated both above and below ground, and these were hundreds of times bigger than those two dropped on Japan in 1945.
Secondly, two small atomic bombs are nothing compared with over 1100 spent fuel rods in the destroyed nuclear facility today. The radiation from these spent rods are negatively affecting the whole world, however, Japan is contaminated beyond any repair and should be completely evacuated.
The Japanese government lied and continue to hide the facts about the true damage, radiation amounts, etc., and tell the general population that as long as they stay 12 miles from the plant they will not be affected.
