As Usual, Japanese Leadership Stumbles Over Everything Past

Ooook.  Most news about China is about their habitual fondness for disease-filled activities. So I am stuck with ‘news’ from Japan.  My problem is that the Japanese aren’t able to leave the past alone. They so desire to change history.

Korean-comfort-women        For instance, they finally agreed to sign a peace treaty with Russia to end World War II.   In ‘Japan and Russia Want to Finally End World War II, Agree It Is ‘Abnormal’ Not To,’ Fred Weir of Reuters writes:  “Russian President Putin and Japanese Prime Minister Abe  . . . wrestled for hours with the problem that has stymied Russian and Japanese leaders for almost 70 years: how to find a mutually acceptable and hopefully profitable way to finally end World War II.”  But all they accomplished was to set up a process to ‘draft’ a peace agreement.

Moreover, Japan won’t stop whale hunting even though their people don’t eat whale meat any more.  And even as deadly radiation from their failed nuclear plants seeps into world waters, they insist on building new nuclear plants.

But now––well aware they are insulting neighboring nations which insist Japan never fully apologized for their WWII atrocities––recently elected conservative government representatives recently justified their war practices of forcing non-Japanese women into prostitution was necessary and justified!

Malcolm Foster writes in ‘Toru Hashimoto, Osaka Mayor, Says Forced Prostitution Of Asian Women During World War II Was Necessary:’ the “. . . co-leader of an emerging conservative political party, . . . said the Japanese military’s forced prostitution of Asian women before and during World War II” was good.

Hashimoto explained:  “To maintain discipline in the military . . . For soldiers who risked their lives in circumstances where bullets are flying around like rain and wind, if you want them to get some rest, a comfort women system was Toru_Hashimoto_Osaka_AP407369767022_620x350necessary. That’s clear to anyone.”

Foster certifies that some 200,000 women, mainly from Korea and China, were “were forced to provide sex for Japanese soldiers in military brothels.”  China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei, responded:

“We are appalled and indignant about the Japanese politician’s comments boldly challenging humanity and historical justice. The way they treat the past will determine the way Japan walks toward the future. On what choice Japan will make, the Asian neighbors and the international community will wait and see.”

Japan’s refrains smack of inhumanity and valuelessness of women.  They have infuriated women in Asia, around the world, and even in Japan.  As Rev. Repriestly teaches us in Online Bible Lessons that world leaders should remember the Bible’s account of Nebuchadnezzar and repent of such pride:  “But when his heart was lifted up, and his mind hardened in pride, he was deposed from his kingly throne, and they took his glory from him: (Daniel 5: 20).”
