Xenon-reduction and the global Fukushima disaster. Why the CTBTO is right and so useful.

At a first glance this subject may surprise you... But is the fast growing spread of nuclear agents across the globe as 'safe' as pretended? In nuclear medicines for example, where a.o. Xenon noble gas is used in 'scanners' for the benefit of patients. How safe are nurses and specialists, working with it on a day to day basis? What about Fukushima, where -as is mentioned in several sources (1, 2, 3)- underground processes caused by some 'disappeared' reactor cores seem to get out of control ever more since the infamous Tsunami accident of 11 March 2011. See the (remarkable) links and CTBTO-movies to make up your mind. Why is Cesium-137, with its relative short half-life (days), predominantly mentioned, but not Xenon-133 with a half-life of millions of years?
The question I would like to raise now may appear surprising as well: should the UNO (the 'world') take over control of the Japanese nuclear accident that now clearly threatens our whole planet? Don't we need the very best experts in an effort to bring this ongoing nuclear disaster to a halt, by-passing the Japanese government and its and other, particular, economic interests?
What's more important? Warfare in foreign countries like Yemen, Mexico (drugs), Sudan or Syria, or the grand-scale poisoning of our planet by a disaster that indigenous authorities and local private companies can't or won't get under control? It also shows the usefulness of the CTBTO that does a lot more than watching the next nuke go off or hearing an accidental meteorite crashing into Russia...
