While I do wholeheartedly agree that this is sickening, but I've noticed that pretty much all countries always try to justify everything they do during whatever wars they were/are fighting, because everyone's afraid that admitting that what wrong deeds you had done would be saying that it was all wrong, a terrible mistake done by the leaders, implying your leaders were wrong. So they just dance around it trying to justify everything. What I am saying is that while this is disgusting, but not all that surprising.

Japanese feelings towards other asians at the time was even worse than how Americans thought of Native Americans.

But you don't hear too much about the slaughter of Native American tribes. It's somewhat the same thing. Before you get too irate at japan, go to the middle of Alabama and tell me that people in the US are different. Just think, it took over 200 years for any official recognition of the wrongs committed by the European settlers towards native Americans.

He needs to have his face slammed repeatedly into a box of upright needles.

As does anyone else who trivialises rape and abuse. I'm just finished reading about what happened to women in Europe just after WW2 and I am not in the mood for hearing this bullshittery.

Germany doesn't pretend the Holocaust never happened and is embarrassed by it to this day, apologising all the time, I wonder why this hasn't seemed to happen in Japan.

Did you see the one with PM Abe posing in a fighter jet with the number 731


The Australians discovered a shocking crime after the war


The Japanese relationship with the Emperor as the divine is not easy for today's world culture to understand.
To be proud of the comfort camps takes some real moral gymnastics, that I choose to believe almost any Modern Japanese would not find acceptable.

wartime comfort does sound very comfy though. mhmm....

Sexual slavery is never okay. Or necessary. It's a very disgusting, bad thing.

The reason most of this isn't widely known is most likely because it didn't affect any of the countries with large media networks, and wasn't relevant when it was discovered.

What a noble fantasy. Maybe you could teach the Japanese how to be peace loving, and civilized like you.

Ireland still has the memory of it's war history to this day, but I imagine it was never on the level of the Asian conflicts.

This guy should be thrown out of office. To say that sex slaves are needed during wartime is an ignorant statement and a lousy way to deal with this situation. They need to deal with this and openly apologize for it. They messed up during the war and made bad decisions, but if they don't have the balls to learn from this and teach their nation about this, then what is preventing it from happening in the future? I hope this guy gets what is coming to him.

So what does he "deserve" exactly? Sounds ominous .

Hopefully I has nothing to do with the needle thing.

I have very little patience or tolerance for rapists or their apologists, wherever they're from. They get away with enough as it is. For fucks sake, one in Ireland merely had to pay a fine for his crime, how is that civilised? And when I see twats come out to defend them and tar the victim I just see red.


Actually I see now that he's the member of the Japan restorative party. Perhaps this is just a case of international media jumping on some idiot to show how bad Japan is, like using a member of the tea party saying something dumb to represent America and it's probably not a common viewpoint.
