Japan arrogant, and very unpleasing...

Remember the post about Hilary Clinton's remarks regarding Japanese sex slaves?

      Hilary Clinton has said the term "comfort women" a euphemism for Asian women
      who were forced to serve as prostitutes for the Japanese military during World War
      II, is wrong and that they should be referred to as "enforced sex slaves." Clinton
      was being briefed on the Japanese occupation of Korea and corrected a US State
      Department official who referred to the vicitims as "Comfort Women."
      So far Washington has avoided getting involved in the painful history dividing
      Korea and Japan. Although Clinton made the comments behind closed doors, they
      appear to reflect her view that the Japanese government must change the way it
      handles the issue.
      To this day, Japan refused to apologize for their past of enslaving women into
      forced sex labor even when their statements are proven to be false.
      We hope that Japan has can offer a sincere apology for its imperialist past,
      especially the brutal colonization of Korea from 1910 to 1945.

Well, in response to Clinton, Japanese Foreign Minister Koichiro Gemba claimed in the Diet on Tuesday that the term is "incorrect."
Further more, Japan has ordered its diplomats in the U.S. to step up efforts to block the planned construction of monuments there for the victims of Japan's forced sex slavery by Korean-American groups.

It is very unpleasing that Japan shows no sign of self-reflection or apology.
As an economic superpower, and a country often referred a s an advanced nation, we would like to see actions, and foreign policies that reflect their elevated position.
