    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.

    This decision comes after a group of 37 local assembly members complained that passages from “Kuni ga Moeru” (“The Country is Burning”) printed in the magazine’s Sept. 16 and 22 editions “distorted history” by describing Japanese soldiers massacring civilians in the Nanjing Massacre of 1937.

    The politicians claim no such massacre took place.

    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.

    But remarks by conservative politicians periodically prompt critics to cast doubt on Tokyo’s sincerity.

    What a bunch of trouble makers that give bad name to Japan. It's no wonder people doubting the sincerity of Japanese apologize or if any of them really acknowledge Japan WW2 atrocities?

    Just curious, does the Japanese history textbook mention and acknowledge that the Japanese soldiers kill Chinese civilians and rape many Chinese women in Nanking Massacre?

    **Japan’s Kamikaze pilots say war horrors lost on young **

    “It was crazy — I cannot support the idea of glorifying our mission,” the former navy pilot said of young men ordered to crash their planes into Allied ships.

    “Japan could go to war again if our leaders are all like Abe. I’m going to die soon, but I worry about Japan’s future.”

    I strongly support this move. Island issues should be handled in ICJ. China has show it's arrogance side thinking it can bullied the weak. This will certainly benefit the SEA. I strongly support this. An alliance between Japan-USA-SEA will be great.

    Government officials are fond of saying Japan has apologized repeatedly for the war, why do we need to apologize again?

    Because there has been a of denials or downplaying from the Japanese making the previous apologize null and void.

    I am honestly getting tired of most commentators in here, nothing is good for you, if one apologize the automatic response is "Empy Words" or "that is not an apology". If some crime happens in Japan, everyone here is sooo alarmed like those kinds of things does not happen anywhere else.

    It's empty words because there has been denial or downplaying in Japan making the apologize null.

    Not a fan of Abe, but he is doing the right thing here. Japan-USA alliance is important to counter China aggressive maritime claim. This alliance benefit not just Japan but also the SEA.

    However, I still think it best if he apologize to China and south Korea seeing there's concern that Japanese is trying to whitewash history. Yes, there is apologize in the past but there's also many attempt to deny and whitewash it making the apologize null. If once Abe make apologize and China still whining, then that is their problem.

    I want to know..what country on earth has a pristine history? Certainly not America, China or Korea. As a matter of fact America celebrates on of the worst war criminals in it's history and that is General Custer, although he is not considered a war criminal in America , but it doesn't mean that he was not one, it only means that the winning side gets to decided who is a criminal and who is not. I think it is better for the citizens of a country to decide what and who is appropriate for them to honor without outside interference based on political correctness, or other nations own version of what is politically correct.

    All country has war criminal in it's history. What really important is not to worship them or honor them. For example, in Arlington, all war criminals are not included there.

    Sorry, Japan: Yasukuni Is Not Arlington

    Most important, one of the criteria for those buried at Arlington is an honorable discharge. Those court-martialed, tried for war crimes, or convicted of a felony cannot be interred. This is not the case for Yasukuni. In addition to the fourteen convicted war criminals who were found responsible for carrying forward the Pacific War, there are thousands who violated both Japanese and international laws. Notable is Washio Awochi (sometimes spelled Awachi) a civilian manager of a comfort station in Batavia (Jarkarta) who was convicted by a 1946 Dutch wars crimes tribunal (Case No. 76) of forcing Dutch women to be Comfort Women (sex slaves). He died in a Batavia jail.

    The museum at Yasukuni glorifies the atrocities of the IJA and claims Japan was "defending Asia", dismissing any ideas of aggression on Japan's part, etc.

    bullshit by Yasukuni museum here. In SEA, history textbook write Japan is trying to colonize Asia. The "defending Asia" from west is just lip service to fool the SEA natives.

    “Major U.S. media, like the New York Times, have voiced open criticism about Mr Abe and Japan turning to the right,” Fukuda said.

    “He could use this trip to ease worries and lay out his vision for the Japan-U.S. partnership in the face of a rising China,” Fukuda said. “The key will be how well Mr Abe explains his agenda to Congress and to the U.S. media.”

    Abe is said to be right winger due to his outrageous view on WW 2 history. If Abe want to ease worries, he should apologize. Japan-US partnership against rising China is another story though it is necessary.

    Definitely lobbying by KoreAms, but moreso policitians keeping the KoreAm vote in their areas:

    Mike Honda - just Google the guy enough said. Steve Israel Sheila Jackson Lee, and Grace Meng - Reps. from Queens, NY - a big Korean population there. Ed Royce and Judy Chu - rep from Los Angeles, a big Korean population there. Don Beyer, Barbara Comstock and Gerry Connolly - rep from Fairfax County, VA - a big Korean population there. Loretta Sanchez and Linda Sanchez - reps from Cali, a big Korean population there. Rob Woodall - rep from Georgia, a big Korean population there. Albio Sires - rep from New Jersey, a big Korean population there.

    Definitely NOT lobbying by Korean.

    Queens, NY = Korean, 2.9 % population = small minority Korean population http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queens#Ethnic_groups

    Los Angeles = Korean, 2.9 % population = small minority Korean population http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LosAngeles#Raceand_ethnicity

    Fairfax County = Korean, 3.8 % population = small minority Korean population http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FairfaxCounty,Virginia#Demographics

    California = Korean, 1.58 % population(have to do mathematics calculation here yourself) = small minority Korean population http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California#Racialandancestral_makeup

    Georgia = 0.51% Korean speakers = small minority Korean population http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgia(U.S.state)#Languages

    New Jersey = 0.89% Korean speakers = small minority Korean population http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Jersey#Languages

    Japanese right winger are in denial that there are non Chinese and Korean who also think Japan is wrong and want to put the blame on Korean. Enough of the lies Japanese right winger.
