Posted in: 'No Japan' banners scrapped in Seoul district after outcry See in context

If the Japanese start to boycott K-Pop, the South Korean music industry is sunk. South Korea needs to grow up and cease this hatred of Japan and the Japanese.

Posted in: Chinese filmmaker shines spotlight on Japan's wartime sexual violence See in context

People have long ceased giving Germany a hard time about WWII and it's about time China and South Korea ceased their bigotry against Japan about a war that ended 74 years ago.

Maybe this Chinese director - "Ban Zhongyi, a Chinese-born director living in Hiroshima" - should be grateful for living in a free, democratic country that allows freedom of speech and complete access to the internet? Maybe he should turn his attention to the Tiananmen Square Massacre?

For heaven's sake, let it go. This war ended 73 years ago. What if the Japanese built a monument to the victims of the Tiananmen Square Massacre in 1989?

What if the Japanese set up a monument to many women who have recently been raped by American soldiers on Okinawa?

Many of the so-called "comfort women" did it voluntarily and were under the protection of Japanese Imperial Army and knew that they would fare better than civilians during the war. And what of the brutality of China under Mao in the last seventy years after the war?

Endeavouring to humiliate the contemporary Japanese by event that happened many decades before they were born is not honourable or productive. If the suffering of these women (many of them volunteers) needed to be celebrated in a monument, why wasn't it done twenty years ago.... or forty years ago ..... or sixty years ago?

The erection of such a monument at this time in the twenty first century is a spiteful and counterproductive act and likely to cause animosity on all sides and destabilise the region.

South Korea has a chip on its shoulder about Japan. If you keep picking at a scab, it won't heal.

Let go of it.
