    If it's peaceful rise then everyone can accept it but if not, which is the case with China, then obviously many can't accept it.

    Aquino is right. China today is closest to Nazi or even Imperial Japan.

    Yes, but the 450 historians also said establishing sound estimates is important. 200 000 might not be exactly accurate but could be estimate.

    But ultimately, whether the numbers are judged to have been in the tens of thousands or the hundreds of thousands will not alter the fact of the exploitation carried out throughout the Japanese empire and its war zones. Some historians also dispute how directly the Japanese military was involved, and whether women were coerced to become “comfort women.” Yet the evidence makes clear that large numbers of women were held against their will and subjected to horrific brutality. Employing legalistic arguments focused on particular terms or isolated documents to challenge the victims’ testimony both misses the fundamental issue of their brutalization and ignores the larger context of the inhumane system that exploited them

    The 450 historians also stated clearly that women are FORCED to become prostitute by Imperial Japanese army. So the historian that dispute it are right wing academics which Singapore PM mention in his quote.

    I think this kind of attitude by the PM of this authoritarian country is what the 450 historians worldwide were against.https://networks.h-net.org/node/22055/discussions/69206/open-letter-support-historians-japan#replies

    Naah..I, the 450 historians mean this kind of politicians.

    TOKYO—A major U.S. publishing company rejected a request by the Japanese government to change passages in a history textbook about women who were forced to serve in Japanese military brothels during World War II.

    @Mitsuo

    Well...it is easy to people just take part of his speech that they most like and ignore the part that he says "They should move on"

    Neither Japan nor China has move on. Japan deny their past war crime while China try to bad mouth about Japan using WW 2. Denying past war crime is not moving on. Do me a favor. Show me a quote from Japanese politician who specifically admit Rape of Nanking. As Singapore PM said, Japan position on comfort women and the Nanjing Massacre has been unequivocal.

    Regardiless of Japan's position about history thing, it doesnt change the fact that the two Korea and China need to learn to be more mature.

    Honestly speaking, neither Japan nor China are mature about this. China has anti Japanese propaganda while Japan try to whitewash and lies about history. Regardless Korea and China mature about this or not, Japan itself is certainly not mature when it try to whitewash history. As Singapore PM said.

    “Japan needs to acknowledge past wrongs, and Japanese public opinion needs to be more forthright in rejecting the more outrageous interpretations of history by its right-wing academics and politicians,” Lee said.

    “Japan has already expressed remorse or apologies for the war in general terms… but on specific issues like comfort women and the Nanjing Massacre, its positions have been less unequivocal,” Lee said.

    The recent statement by the group of prominent Japanese historians urging Abe to stop from denying and twisting the history shows there are still many Japanese with conscience.

    I must have miss out. Can you show me link/source for your claim here?

    China and Korea are the only ones who cry out.

    With exception of them, every Asian countries moved on.

    Time to China and Korea to be mature and stop acting like spoil kids.

    We will move on when Japan stop deny their atrocities.

    But I am getting sick of the pressure being put on the Japanese today who just want to be getting on with things and move on.

    We all can move on as long as Japan stop deny it.

    Whaaaaaattt?? But just yesterday wingers were on here saying it was only "Chinese and South Koreans" that keep bringing this up!!

    Obviously it's not just Chinese and south Koreans concern about Japan white washing. History should never be distorted. Japanese lies and revisionist only embarrassed itself.

    This means Murayama's 1995 apology was a failure.

    Thanks to Abe.

    But the 91-year-old Murayama said Abe appears ready to “dilute” the apology when he makes his own statement later this year.

    My advice to Japan is that stop playing the victim card as if the entire world are being bias and against Japan. Instead, do something about Japanese revisionist who try to play down or deny Japan WW 2 atrocities.

    Only, why is this always about Japan ?

    Because of denialists and revisionist in Japan. Not because Japan lost WW 2. Germany lost WW 2 but you don't see the world push W 2 issues to Germany right?

    In addition towards the fact Japan committed the most war crimes in Asia than any other countries during WW2, all this problem happen because there are people in Japan who try to deny their war crimes. That is why you always see people outside Japan told Japan to face up to its history as there are a lot of revisionist in Japan. I don't know if most Japanese acknowledge their WW 2 crimes or not but Japan need to do something on the revisionist who are giving Japan a lot of bad reputation to Japan and make the world doubt Japan's sincerity in Japanese apologize.

    Japan are easy target because they lose the war? Don't make me laugh. German are loser in the war too but you don't see people constantly push the past war issues towards German right? The root for all this problem is not people being bias trying to demonize Japan but rather, the revisionist in Japan who are giving Japan bad names.

    Also, in high school, lots of the teachers are leftist, and provide "supplementary materials" to explain whatever is not in the textbooks. I still remember some of the photographs more than 15 years later.

    Are you a Japanese studying in Japan before? Can you share with us what does Japanese history text book says about Rape of Nanking? Just a short summary will do because I really hope those conservative politicians who deny or try to play down those atrocities represent a very small minority of Japanese people.
