    Why are people still demanding an apolgy? According to CNN Japan has apologized over 17 times. South Korea got their apology in 1965, along with USD 800 million to go to individuals like the fprmer Comfort Women but the South Korean government kept it for themselves. Communist China got ther apology in 1972 along with assistance which helped them get wherethey are today. Does Mike Honda know that these former Comfort Women were questioned in South Korea back in 1992 and found to be "not credible"? Has he ever read the US Army report No.49? Do South Koreans understand that the US-Japan alliance is critical to the defense of South Korea from the North?

    John Rabe was a Nazi. Try and tie that into this article.

    . It cuts both ways Japan.

    This isn't about Japan". It's about an indivudual who did the rigt thing against orders.

    JimizoApr. 24, 2015 - 02:54PM JST 'Twenty-five U.S. lawmakers are urging Japan’s prime minister “to formally reaffirm and validate” apologies made by his predecessors for Japanese wartime aggression.' Interesting. The nationalists keep telling us it is only China and South Korea who are concerned about this issue. The >foul stench of the right also reaches the nostrils of US and Germany to name two.

    Your kidding yourself. These few US politicians are infuenced (vote bought) by the Korean American Lobby in the US. They don't dare act for Chinese interests for fear of political fallout and the fact that Chinese Amerians are to a great extent not pro-CCP. If you recall Germany had and still has zero interest in theChina lead anti-JP agenda.

    Abe is the first J-PM to stuck his neck out to accomodate our requests since they were first put forth in 1950 diring the Korean War. For those unfamilar with that war, North Korea with CHINA's help killed US, SKorean and UN troops from 15 countries. China today is the biggest threat to peace and stability in he regon, And as much as many Jbashers here hate to dnit it, Japan is the most important US ally in the region as well as the most economically powerful democratic nation in Asia. As for the K-As in the US whining about Abe, if they can't support US policy they are welcome to pack up their luggage and kimchee jars and go home. And the vote whores who think that supporting KA's who are projecting North Korea's agenda on US soil are giving them the "asian vote" can take a hike with them.

    China and itls trbutary state South Korea are not all of Asia. In fact these two countries are the only ones present at the summit that continues to harp on WWII. In it's typical J-bashing agenda, AFP makes this article all about Japan;s WWII past whereas the reality is that the meeting and position of Xi towards Abe in light of the past couple years of cold shoulder is THE most significant part of the summit story. China's boom is over, they aren't going to keep increasing at 8% much less double digits. China wants Japan to join their new global financial order, to evettually replace US leadership in that arena as well. South Korea is going to end up in the dog house because in truth, Japan is far more vakuable to China in many ways.

    Japan can apologize every day for the next 1000 years and it will never be accepted by China because refusing to accept it is a crucial part of their anti-US-Japan security alliance. Soth Korea will nevre accept it as long as it relies almost entirely on China economically. That both nations already received apologies, signed peace treaties with Japan in 1965 ad 1972 respectively and both benefited from good relations with Japan until China became strong enough to come open with it's territorial expansion plans 4 decades later is not lost on the eyes of the world. As usual AFP is doing everything it can to create conflict. If Abe is not retracting ay previous apology then there is no real need to get your paties in a knot.

    An apology takes two parties to mean anything, one to make the apology and the other to accept it. From what I've seen South Korea accepted it in 1965 and China accepted it in 1972. But the changed their minds many decades later. Why? Had Japan rescinded it's apologies? Had it it decided to drop democracy and go back to a fadcist imperialst state and invade other countries? The answer objectively is "no". So what has changed? China's military and one-party dictatorship goverment had decided as far back as 2002 that China was going to push the United States out of the western Pacific. And the US-Japan alliance was, and remains the biggest obstacle to their expansionist goals. While China still feels unable to challenge the United States, it uses Japa as a proxy, going so far as to employ anti-Japan sentimewnt as an official diplomatic and political tool. And South Korea? Since the Myung Back regime, it too has pursued the "China model" is deference to it;s largest trading partner. Even at the expense of it;s security relationship with the United States. To answer to author Murakami, an apology given to a party determined to not accept it for its own purposes is pointless, and increasing apologies will make no difference at all.

    Chinese intrusions int the East China Sea and in proximity of Okinawa are not just a challenge to Japan, they are directed at the US-Japan alliance which stands as the region's largest obstacle to China's aspiratons of territirial expansion.

    Koreans need to get theur big chip off their shoulder and face up to history, not the one they wrote as soon as Japan lost the war.The only way that is going to happen is if there is any courage in the South Korean leadership, which we havent seen in the past few years because Myn Bak was born in Japan and Park Gyun Hye's father was an Imperial Japanese Army officer diring WWII. Politicians like these have to rely on anti-Japan sentiment to keep their political enemies at bay. Only a South Korean leader free of any past connection to Japan and more concerned with the future of South Korea than prtotecting their personal politica position can change the "fixation" on history.

    Can Reuters quote the source of this statement? " but Washington has also made clear it does not want to get dragged into a Sino-Japanese conflict." Two Secretaries of State, Two Secretaries of Defense, AND the POTUS have stated that the Senkakus are included in US- Japan Security Alliance defense parameters.

    China and the US are NOT the same. We create alliances and cooperation, and we don't steal territory. China does not beieve in cooperation, they belive in subjugation.

    Yes China, the United States does have the biggest military on earth. But while we use our might to influence our diplomatic goals, what we don't do is use it to expand our territorial claims at the expense of smaller neighbors.
