Aiding and ABEtting.

Shinzo Abe 安倍 晋三is our new Prime Minister (Japan's that is, not Canada's.) He's a life-long politician (has grandpa was a PM) and hasn't lived that long a life yet. He's the youngest PM since prior to WWII and has been pretty active to date. Amongst other feats, he negotiated the return of the abductees from Kim Jong Il. Will he piss off the North Koreans? Time will tell.

I'm not sure what to expect from him. He'll probably make the Chinese happy by not visiting War Crime graves, but he may become a new patsy of GWB. Time will tell.

All I know is that so far, he hasn't done anything worthy of making jokes about. Time will tell.
