    That's the problem - there is no official stance of the goverment. If there was, there wouldn't be any debate right now, as there would be nothing to debate

    StrangerL,

    An excellent point that a lot of the "Japan has apologized blah blah blah" crew don't seem to understand.

    As you say Japan has NOT ratified any apology in the Diet, they have all been said by INDIVIDUALS, this has always been by design. And hasn't served Japan worth a damn, Japan continues to dig its hole deeper & deeper, this year I cant see how abe can make any progress given his hazy highly WRONG view of history.

    I personally hope abe gets shoved outta the way & THE EMPEROR steps in & tells it LIKE IT IS!!

    That is the only way I think Japan can come out of this 70th anniversary year ahead, very unlikely to happen though!

    Confining so many large fish in such a TINY areas is very HIGHLY conducive to spreading disease, surprised it took this long.

    As for the last one, best not to release as its likely sick as well

    Personal statements by individual Japanese cannot cancel out the official public stance of the Japanese government.

    It most certainly DOES when you people like the current PM who deny history, when you have people who run nhk deny history & the govt is FULL of deniers!

    Its patently obvious Japan is utterly insincere wrt to 1920-1945 period,

    And abe is one of the WORST possible people to have "leading" JApan in this year the 70th anniversary of Japans savage & brutal aggression & here we have some stupid committee trying to clarify thing, how utterly EMBARASSING!!! Except that many here are informed enough to realize it, how sad is that, hint, its VERY SAD!

    TinaW,

    Please re-read the article for starters, there are LOTS of mistakes & inconsistencies to put it mildly, after that there are 1000s & 1000s more over the years & are flowing non-stop as I type, Japan digs its own grave with this utter non-sense!

    The unnamed right wing nut jobs(name the SOBs!) just like the sex slave issue which rational people KNOW happened, they dwell on a stupid single word, "aggression" what friggin morons!

    They attempt to divert the entire discussion, thankfully only right wing dim wits but this crappola!

    This is simple Japan, there were sex slaves, WWII happened & Japan killed & slaughtered 10s of millions, laid waste to vast areas, left many injured, abused wherever they went, THESE FACTS HAVE BEEN ESTABLISHED!!

    After 70yrs Japan still hasn't even remotely dealt with the 1920-1945 period, people here know precious little about this stuff, its a total waste.

    I often say its another embarrassing day to be living in Japan, yes its one of those again although its getting worse & we may no longer be able to be simply embarrassed, it way well turn into a SHAME to be here.

    Japan, why & why are you so intent to run off the damned cliff!!

    To the few on this committee that clearly have a grasp on the issues, I thank you, the other con go rot under a log!

    And of you add in the K/B, dango, amakudari, yakuza take, etc etc these figures need to go MUCH higher as corruption isn't even figured into these figures.

    What a bloody mess, days like this I dream about having left after 3/11, Japan what a nightmare & its set to continue unabated !!

    I feel sorry for yanks, this is getting pretty stupid, I would rather have govts who suspect some audit those to find things out rather than having banks worldwide funnel info back to the US & god know whatever countries follow suit.

    The amount of info one has to keep if living outside their own country is getting to be rather painful & for the VAST majority UN-BLOODY necessary! Focus on the 1%ers they are the once scamming the taxman!

    Sadly with abe as PM Japan is basically screwed, if he says what HE believes, it will be very bad for Japan, if abe says what SHOULD be said the whole world knows he DOESNT mean it & is basically lying from his point of view, & thus insincere.

    Either way Japan cant hope to gain much if anything with the current PM simply not possible.

    Sino-Japan relations have long been poisoned by what China sees as Japan’s failure to atone for its occupation of parts of the country before and during the war,

    Actually the whole world outside Japan knows this bit, which should have been dealt with many many decades ago instead its been left to fester for decades & here we are!

    Certainly a bit of a theatre of the absurd going on here.

    And as all too often common sense not so common, totally absent by the sounds of it!

    Yes its true govts are corrupt & inefficient however Japan is off the charts. Why do you think a tiny country with a large population get such low value for their taxes. Open your eyes, the cost of corruption in Japan is MASSIVE, haven't you read about all the labour scams wrt 3/11???

    Its so bad & institutionalized that the govt etc have created bureaucracies, regulatory authorities who are solely designed to pilfer money for little or no benefit to the people of Japan.

    I think the real question is when are you going to come to Japan see whats painfully obvious

    If they truly want to make treks up & down Fuji safe then STOP the hordes from going up & down all the time, the mass of humanity going up & down is CLEARLY the biggest risk to safety on that mountain!

    And yes Fuji is much better from a far than actually climbing it, best to climb elsewhere

    For christs sake we already saw how these walls DIDNT WORK & you want to make more & make them higher.

    This country is going to hell & a hand basket at an atrocious rate, thank goodness I have no kids to see what this BS will do to the country.

    When are these idiots known as the ldp going to be stopped. JAPAN YOU HAVE NO ONE TO BLAME BUT YOURSELVES was a colossal mistake this is! Words just cant describe to sheer lunacy of it all!!

    These guys who run the temples & shrines are often well known to be rather randy characters.

    I remember the mrs & I went to one of the shrines/temples cant remember which likely shrine with all the big wooden phalluses etc & we got talking with one of these guys & he LITERALLY said he worships........how can I saw this, Japanese ladies ... nether regions..... the guy was gushing in his praise & was pretty embarrassing even though I couldn't understand all of what he said it was crazy LOL! my wife was pretty embarrassed BUT she was listening pretty intently, was quite an experience!

    Kuribyashi was not stained by such a record, and he should respected as a shrewd military leader. But he was the exception, and Iwo Jima was an exceptional battle.

    Perhaps, but what if he was stationed in Okinawa or one of the South Pacific Isles that saw not only fierce fighting but the usual nastiness Japan dished out........ course we'll never know, but its unlikely he would have spared local civilian if they were there
