It's used widely, might have more to do with the unique DNA here. Being special does have side effects.

As I understand it, he denies the testimony of those who were forced into this depraved life in order to maintain discipline in the (Freedom Loving, can do no wrong) Japanese Imperial Forces. Then blames misunderstanding while maintaining his stance on the Issue. With historical evidence (what occupied country has a good tail to tell about Japanese occupation) would with any serious research not uncover brutal cruel killings and rapes on a scale and duration, that for once gives him a point, Japan was the best at this.
Any comparison to other countries is a moot point, yes these things did occur but certainly not state sponsored ( nazis killed ) and not directed by a Government department. Even with testimony of former soldiers the denial continues.
The fact is very well known,researched and beyond debate. But not within Japan that is the problem.
Flaunting ignorance must be, is becoming a flag of stupidity that is being waved over Japan as a sign of strength.
There is a falk in the road...continue this blind stupidity
Or be the bigger man

15 Km from the biggest ongoing N-Disaster known, let's grow food!. And people worry about labeling? Just a thought how about not growing and not selling it. I would be happier to pay them to retire then worry about eating this crap.

Cost cutting, lack of transparency, adverse health, bankrupt company morally and financially creators of a Nuclear Disaster of epic proportions. Pumping filth into the ocean, yep I would want to work for them too. 10,000 yen a day with little protective clothing . It's Regretable I feel so sad for them.

Search YouTube there are many ex soldiers trying to make amends unit 731members and users of the state organized brothel system. It's sad that the denial is from the state and not from the participants.

I will tell the comfort women that I’m sorry for Japan having had such a system no matter whether it was forcible or not,” Hashimoto said. Forcible or not? Seriously he thinks that's an apology? As for Japan being a whipping boy for Asia wouldn't be if those in power were educated rather than de-educated.

Just numerals 731? just as "SS" are mear letters. Guess education, historical awareness and empathy are a cultural thing. Just not in Japanese culture.

These people if fact all Japanese people have been and continue to be shafted fed misleading if not false information for the sake of big business and government face.if it was a film it would be a b grade at best.I really hope a sence of empathy and alarm is raised with this Docco, but sadly I doubt it.

Tomorrow perhaps we read about her suicide! Or a story about low wages, or a titillating story about horny female teachers. Maybe about bullying and how co-workers expose each other over matters such as this...or a story about prostitution laws and the enforcement on the provider not the purchaser...has anyone seen a story about a host getting charged? This is pathetic on soooooo many levels.

Again? Oh sorry. That should read "Again" I believe the appropriate word is...shogunie or some such word delivering a feeling of warmth in the face of pathetic incompetence and failure that results in a knock on effect that may result in birth defects or a prolonged death from cancer, or these DEATHS might be the result of diet...think shoganie pretty much covers it. The government is TRYING it's best in the face of facts to do a good job.

Sorry my point my have been too strong, they were intelligent enough to organize a move. But either he had ceased to contribute towards bills or they were continuing to "collect" his share and were "shocked" to find his skeleton! Better get ride of that they thought!
