Agreed. Too much energy spent rewriting history that should be focused on growing better relations rather than whitewashing past misdeeds. Acknowledge and progress on!

The Japanese Military authorities of the 1930's brutalized and dehumanized their own personnel so it is no great leap of intelligence to understand they also treated conquered civilians with even less regard than their own. Now is not the time to downplay the suffering and injustice these women were put through. Sincerely acknowledge the sins of the past as only this will truly transcend the inhumanity of it.
