In some kind of a weird way this is a win-win situation. Japan gets to keep the insane bail of $14million, doesn't have to pay the cost for his prison lodging and Ghosn gets his freedom.

OssanAmerica. The term sexual forced labour has been used in official court documents way before Korean (admittedly) politicised the issue.
Nice how you only name Korean middlemen, but Japanese officers have literally been convicted of forcing girls into slavery in the Dutch East Indies. One of the only places with good documentation and where not all documents were burned. If you want to keep yourself in the dark about the direct Japanese military involvement on this institutional forced sexual l labour, whatever, but don't call people biased or uneducated because that's exactly what you are.
"Kidnapped as a girl of 10 years old"
"According to the document women were taken on the order of Japanese lieutenant"

They were prostitutes. No one is debating that. The debate is over how they ended up in the IJA military brothel system and what were they occupations prior to "recruitment".
If you think sex slaves are prostitutes than nobody debates it, but many people don't think sex slaves are prostitutes.
Actually, it was his grandfather who should have done so.
Akihito's grandfather is Taisho (Yoshihito), who did not play any role in the second world war as he died in the 1920s so I think you misread something.

So I’m 0-9 in the votes??
I’m the only guy who figures girls like boys to be strong and I in general pay for girls on dates.
Must be that toxic masculinity again
Nah you're just a boomer.

Wow! A couple in their 80’s still running a dry cleaning business. Doesn’t say much for he Japanese pension system, does it?
there’s nothing mentioned about the mother being ill and needing a full time carer, so the usual scenario doesn’t fit.
No in the text it says it's the husband of the perpetrator, so a couple in their 60s running a business not the husband of the deceased.

Less saturated fat less processed carbohydrates. More complex carbohydrates and vegetables and foods like pulses, beans, sea vegetables easy fix.

I understand what happened with the comfort women.
Maybe you do, but many don't. Just look at the comments in this thread, and they aren't even Japanese.
Also how is this "Korean propaganda?" The film is made by a Japanese American.

I mean it does seem like very poor communication on the IOC part.. Pretty understandable that the people that have been working on this project for years feel a bit betrayed. Justified as the IOC conclusion may be..

What's the point of those comments stating you don't know who she is. She's the most famous influential Chinese celebrity of the last 10 years, evidently with that tax hike of a $130 million dollars.

I think there is still a difference between vegan and vegetarian. I am vegetarian thou not vegan.
But all products mentioned are vegan, what do you mean?

Yes or you could, you know promote a plant-based diet, as was eaten in Okinawa when they were still getting old. It's sustainable, healthier and less animals die. We're already producing enough food for 11 billion people, only to feed half of it to cattle.

Some sickening comments here... What Japanese soldiers have done in the first half of the 20th century are atrocities that even the ISIS soldiers will blush about when reading about it.
Current leaders must take responsibility over the undisciplined army that rampaged throughout Asia, killing, raping, looting. It amazes me that current leaders dare to deny or trivialize it when people like General Iwane Matsui, were at utter dismay when he saw what the undisciplined army had done.
There have been sex slaves, Dutch, Indonesian, Phillipine, Chinese, Korean, Taiwanese even Japanese among many others.
It's time for Japan to distantiate themselves for what their undisciplined army has done, instead of treating these animals like heroes.
I like many things about Japan, but these events are a major stain on an otherwise admirable people. Taking distance from these events will adorn them like nothing else can.
As for the JT'ers educate yourselves. I recommend reading the book Hirohito and the making of modern Japan.
