Not long ago, mayor of Osaka...

Not long ago, mayor of Osaka, made remarks denying the fact that comfort women served the Japanese military voluntarily, and that they were not enforced into sexual slavery during World War II. Statements like this denies the Japan's responsibility as a war criminal nation, and is a provocation towards the nations that fell victim to Japanese imperialistic brutality. The US, too, has lost around 2,400 soldiers and civilians to the Japanese during the Pearl Harbor. Japan's apology for its shameful past is just as important to the US as it is to other countries.
