Fukushima Nuclear Disaster: A Conspiracy?
What Could Have Really Caused the Earthquake
Days before the Sendai Earthquake struck the Land of the Rising Sun, the world was a witness to a number of rising unrest of people in nations ruled by dictators supported by leaders of countries allied to them. There were protests, political unrest and upheavals in Libya, Saudi Arabia and other nearby countries which are known to have a good reserve of yet to be extracted crude oil. The international community has been building pressures on some of the leaders of these countries to stop the brutality, step down and give way to democracies.
Suddenly, a killer earthquake that brought forth not only broken roads, but also tsunamis, refinery fires and explosions, and nuclear reactor meltdown, shifted the world's attention from those fighting against dictators for political freedom to those fighting against the wrath of nature for their own lives and the lives of their loved ones.
It seemed that disaster after disaster had befallen the proud country. After the earthquake came the tsunami, the refinery fires and nuclear plant explosions and meltdowns coming one after another, like dominoes falling one by one in a line. Somehow, such a series of unfortunate events should have been, at least, less destructive than this had there not been human intervention in the things that happened.
Given the pressures building up in the Middle East and in other areas of the world, it is possible that the politicians who were able to get away from the concerns of the political activists were aided by some of their allies by causing something as huge and tragic as what has happened to make the world focus on other things.
One possible conspiracy theory that forms in my mind is this: A nuclear bomb had been planted near Sendai. It is this nuclear bomb that has caused the great earthquake shaking most of Japan and causing Japan to fall into economic turmoil. Because the nuclear bomb cannot clean its work, the conspirationalists took advantage of its proximity to the Fukushima nulcear plant to explain the presence of harmful radiation in areas where the nuclear bomb could have exploded. To do so, they had to make the nuclear plant explode or undergo a meltdown. Hence, what has happened to date. In a way, I believe that this makes sense; after all, I don't think it is that common for earthquakes to continue many times in different but geographically close epicenters at huge intensities.
A funny story from what had happened, could have been that some bad wizards and witches are causing all the havoc that had occurred, and that a number of wizards and witches from something like the Ministry of Magic in Harry Potter had tried to change the memories of the people who were able to really witness what has happened.
It is my hope that these had only been conspiracy theories and not what has really happened.
