    Japan is correct. The "Comfort Women" from Korea were NOT "Sex Slaves". This differs from Indonesia and the Philippines where some actually were "Sex Slaves" and the perpetrators tried and convicted. American textbooks should not be supporting a hoax, one which runs counter to the US Army's own findings during WWII.

    "There is no evidence to support that Japanese military permitted Korean prostitution brokers to lie or use violence when recruiting Korean women or operating comfort stations. Any coercion, violence or confinement was exercised by Korean brokers against the rules. So if one wants to use the term "sex slaves" to describe former Korean comfort women, they were sex slaves of Korean brokers who owned and operated comfort stations. They were not sex slaves of Japanese military. Japanese military personnel visited comfort stations only as customers. As for dozens of Dutch and Filipino women who were coerced by Japanese soldiers in the battlefields, sex slaves of Japanese military is an appropriate expression."

    "China and several Asian countries harbor deep distrust of Japan "

    Who, apart from China (PRC) and South Korea? Japan's have been welcomed by other Asian nations as well as the U.S., Australia and now EU.

    flowersJan. 21, 2015 - 02:17AM JST Quite a show for Japan, now Japan can be seen to be on India's side. Please give Japanese government a nice round >of applause as their foreign policies seem to be a nice reading while in the toilet.

    Anyone who has been following the news over the last couple of years would know that this isn't happening "now", it's been happening for some time. The only thing that belongs in the toilet are posts by those who support the Chinese dicatorship and it isn't for reading.

    neobiosJan. 20, 2015 - 07:34PM JST How would Japan feel if China said Takeshima belongs to South Korea?

    How is that of any concern to Japan when China is claiming a part of Okinawa Prefecture as it's own? China needs to recognize that all it's land grabbing, as if it needs any more, isn't making it any friends anywhere in Asia.

    Let China bristle all they want. All of Asia and the world knows it's true. China's constant denial of reality mode spewed by their robotic Foreign Ministry isn't fooling anybody .

    "Uemura’s story was the first published interview with the first woman who came forward with her experiences, Kim Hak-soon. He has been criticized by revisionists since then"

    If I recall correctly I believe that Kim Hak-Soon was one of the group of victims who was questioned and interrogated in South Korea back in 1992 by Professor Ahn of Seoul University and found to be "not credible". So the people who pointed out that Uemura's story was inaccurate are "revisionists"? The western media are so obviously biased in their view.

    The entire "Comfort Women" issue is blown out of proportion and filled with inaccuracies which contradict historical evidence, such as the US Army Report No.49. Japanese are not the only ones who recognize the flood of erroneous information that is spread and repeated by the anti-Japan crowd, notably many in South Korea. This is an eye-opener for those who are entrenched in the myth.

    If China uses military force to take the Senkakus the United States will intervene. The POTUS, two Secretaries of State and two Secretaries of Defense have stated this in no uncertain terms. Australia has a defense alliance with the U.S. so if China and the U.S. engage in conflict, how the average Australian survey taker who has no idea where the Senkakus are feels about it is about as irrelevant as it can get. But got to hand it to the Chinese, they still want to win this through propaganda rather than the ICJ.

    Pukey2Jan. 01, 2015 - 06:48PM JST How is this any different to Shimane prefecture having a Takeshima Day or Japanese maps (including weather maps >on TV) showing the Southern Kuriles as if they were part of Japan?

    Easy. Japan has objected to South Korea's declaration of ownership of the Liancourt Rocks the moment they did so, and since then have suggested settling the issue at the ICJ THREE times.South Korea has continued to refuse, obviously because they know they can not win legally. In contrast, China has never taken Japan, or the PI or Vietam for that matter to the ICJ to settle any of their disputes. As for the Southern Kuriles, the United States, UK, European parliament recognize them as JAPANESE territory under RUSSIAN OCCUPATION. Finally there are posters here whose sole raison d'etre is to hate Japan, and they are simply too uneducated to engage in any discussion, so they should just refrain from addressing any of my posts.

    A Chinese propaganda website doesn't mean anything. Unless China decides to take this issue to the ICJ, the world will continue to see China's claim for what it is, part of the greater effort to take territory from it's smaller Asian neighbors. What's next, a website to attempt to justify Chinese ownership of the entire South China Sea?

    IshiwaraDec. 21, 2014 - 03:39PM JST Apart from the two rocks in the Sea of Japan, Korea and Japan share a lot of interests and are allies in the Pax >Americana. About time they start behaving like allies.

    It's only South Korea that has a behavior problem.

    wtfjapanDec. 20, 2014 - 11:50PM JST so what are the US going to do , go down to the Antartica or Australia and arrest them!! LOL

    Do any of these SSCS members ever want to come home? Contempt charges in personam can be applied the moment they enter US waters. SSCS is headquartered in Washington State. We can seize their assets and pull their charitable tax exemption status. SSCI and it's followers have always displayed a complete lack of understanding or respect for the rule of law. Sad thing is that there are those who will continue to throw their hard earned money away so that SSCS can spend it defending itself from ruling against their criminal activities, or Watson's legal bills arising from being sued by Ady Gil and Peter Bethune. Want to spend your money feeling good by "saving whales"? Donate to a real conservationist organization, not the bunch of Sea Shepherd eco-terrorists.

    South Korea can send their F-5s to China for maintenance. Seriously their order should be cancelled. Their huge chip on the shoulder is fine for themselves but not for the US alliance.

    China would like the US to withdraw from Asia and its Asian alliances because it hinders their plans for regional dominance. China really sucks as a country.

    "..its rising-sun ensign, a symbol inherited from the wartime Imperial Navy, flying from its main mast."

    It was inherited from way before that but the media just has to use wording to suggest otherwise. The Japanese navy used this flag in the Sino-Japanese war of 1884, the Russo-Japanese War of 1904 where Japan was supported by the UK and US, WWI where Japan was an Allied power. Comments like these which suggest that the flag is directly and only connected to WWII is why many SKoreans are under the misconception that it is some kind of fascist flag, The US F-22 Raptor Fighter Squadron (27th Exp) based in Kadena Okinawa use this patch: http://www.ebay.com/itm/USAF-27th-EXPEDITIONARY-FIGHTER-SQUADRON-F-22-RAPTOR-KADENA-2013-PATCH-/151157272227?pt=LHDefaultDomain0&hash=item2331aceea3

    wtfjapanNov. 16, 2014 - 12:30AM JST funny how they only get the proof from a Japanese guys lies or documentation long since destroyed, how about >asking some of the thousands of women that were actually the sex slaves.

    "Thousands" of former Comfort Women have not come forward with any claims. In 1993 Prof Ahn investigated 50 former Comfort Women in South Korea and found their testimony to be "not credible". Your view is an example of how Asahi's false story has shaped popular opinion on the subject.

    EthanWilberNov. 16, 2014 - 09:33AM JST "For anyone who may have second thoughts on Japan’s war-time sex slavery just because of Asahi Shimbun’s reporting mistakes. Please refer New York Time’s Op page..."

    How about Reading the US ARMY Report no.49 from 1944 interrogating captured Comfort Women during the war? AS opposed to an editorial written by someone who wasn't alive at the time? 39-1945/codex/Documentos/report-49-USA-orig.html

    sf2kNov. 15, 2014 - 05:25PM JST except the comfort women had nothing to do with this one man, so rather than make the limited correction about the >man's statements this instead becomes fodder for the righties of Japan to denounce the issue

    While this Yoshida's fake story had nothing to do with the Comfort System itself, it had everything to do with the views held by people such as yourself that women were dragged out of their homes or that 200,000 women were involved. These views are inaccurate and the result of this false story run by this newspaper. That the story was false was pointed out by scholars decades ago but people, such as yourself, denounced such people attempting to establish facts as "apologists". The Comfort Women system was a military brothel system, and Japan was not alone in having one during WWII. The women were recruited and some undoubtedly deceived into employment. That this issue can never be resolved is not because of "denial" of events but by "denial of facts" by those who persecute Japan for it.
