Asia would be so much better off if the Big 3 countries -- Japan, China, SK -- would all just put recent history to rest and each stop trying to twist their version of it so they can feel better about themsleves.
Thank you, Jersyboy. I agree with you
I also believe each country has the key to creat enviornments that support each other. Sustainable neighborhoods are the building blocks of a sustainable communty here. Unfortunately, blaming others for one reason or the other is common act in which we live. we may not aware, but it is true that we all resposible for whatever that happens.
I hope I could read a beautiful article like 'Neighbors Helping Neighbors' on 'Japan Today' soon.

@CajunH2O The point is not 'How many times have they apologized ' but 'How to make a sincere apology even once'.
Apologies are usually poorly received due to the huge gap that separates our sincerely felt emotions from the watered-down version which actually deliver.
Just use a simple, straightforward sentence 'I'm sorry', and do not add terms like 'but' or 'review'. That's it.

@ Fox Cloud Lelean, Good point, darling ! "Sending drones into another nation's airspace is generally considered an act of war" That is true.
I like your stance cause Japanese naval ships entering Korean waters near Dokdo & Uleungdo should be also considered an act of war. The pot calls the kettle black.

We can pick friends, but can't pick your neighbors. Some neighbors are not pleasant and can make life miserable at times. If having good neighbors, considered blessed.
Neighbors can play an important role in our community and our future. Both countries can be best neighbors, I believe.
Past is past, but present represents what did to each other. Let's respect others. Both should put more effort for the beautiful relationship.
Regardless of both sides of right-winger, people can promote the good will. Mojority of people do not care what politics is, but they care better life, place, and happiness.
