Why are you guys wasting brainpower on something that happened 70 years ago? not worth even stressing about... way worse things happen everyday.


Because the article is recent and people learn a lot by discussing the past. Don't you know the quote? "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

That quote is completely foolish and naive. You really need to read and learn about sex slavery/rape to know thats its bad and not to do it?

Everyone should replace sex with war time comfort. "hey baby It's been a hard day at work, I want wartime comfort."

Then maybe you can explain to completely foolish and naïve me, why then there are people who are still doing rape/sex slavery? Actually the quote is about the need to be reminded the beliefs and mindset that allowed that same to prevail under excuses for the future. That's was also him saying after the excuse, that is what the USA needs to do in Okinawa for its troops, instead of arresting those troops or having them arrested. Already he has found a way to justify it to happen again about 75 years later.

Thank you. I didn't have the time to bother explaining that.

Because right down to the core, people are animals... we are all capable or horrendous things.... there's no stopping it. All you can do is punish not prevent.

You want this person dead? okay kill him..... but it wont stop the next person.

That's a big jump there, I never asked or wanted him dead.....If what I wanted for was to happen he would recognize his mistake and it would be truly be in the past. What I will accept is the right of free speech to oppose his idea in an open forum and let his own ideas be judged by others, as mine will be also. If I only remind one person that this is not right when they have to vote in his next election, then it is worth it.

I don't want someone who is that volatile to be appointed to negotiating with the Chinese over possession of the Senkaku Islands. For if attacked, Japan would have the USA to go to their defense by our obligations to Japan, which we would do. No one would be the winner but there would be angered survivors. If we recognize mistakes, the earlier we debate and find a solution, less people get hurt. This is one of the lessons we have learned in the past about appeasement, about 75 years ago in central Europe. About 50 Million Dead People paid for that mistake for others to learn, let us be dedicated to making our best effort of preventing that happening again. I think that we could honor them best that way.

This guy and Todd Akins must be brothers.

For those who don't know, its the GOP Senate Candidate that said "If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

Since I did it to the other thread it wouldn't be right if I didn't do it to this one to. This is about Japanese politics and or one particular Japanese official, it should go in the Japan forum not gen disc. Moved!

Yes, this article made some huge waves recently. It is unfortunate that some of Japan's conservatives (nothing wrong with being conservative) are making some strange remarks lately about wartime Japan.
