  1. Abe has to be one of the worse Japanese leaders in history. First there Fukushima catastrophe from a massive earthquake/tsunami that caused meltdowns of npps with emergency generators in their basements, of all places! Now abe re opened an npp on kysuhu where there have been thousands of eqs in the past few months. Now there is an eruption.
