Japan’s Denial of Its Past Crimes Slammed

of Its Past Crimes Slammed

Japan is now making desperate effort to cover up its past crimes.

Not long ago, the chief Cabinet secretary who regards the statue of a sexual slave for the Imperial Japanese Army in Berlin, the capital city of German , as a thorn in his flesh, insisted on its removal. He also made such nonsensical remark that Japan would strive to "wrest fair appraisal from the world community."

Following him, the disgusting riff-raff in Japan made a fuss, calling for removing the statue and making protest calls.

This can never be overlooked as it is another frontal challenge to the international community demanding for Japan's atonement for its past crimes.

If Japan really wants to be impartially appraised by the international community as a peace state, it should sincerely atone for its past crimes before anything else as it is its legal and moral obligation.

However, Japan still refuses to admit the war crimes in the previous century, far from making an apology and reparation for them.

The sexual slavery is, indeed, a heinous state-sponsored unethical crime against hundreds of thousands of women committed under the pretext of raising the combat power and encouraging the Japanese troops.

What matters is that Japan insulted the victims of the sexual slavery by calling them "volunteers for making money" and openly specified in the blue book on its diplomatic policies that "such expression as sexual slavery for the Imperial Japanese Army should not be used as it is contrary to the fact". Worse still, it is justifying its impudent acts while talking about the "final and irreversible settlement of the sexual slavery issue".

Lurking behind it is the wicked intention of the insular nation to evade its legal and moral responsibility by covering up and beautifying its blood-stained past history.

History can neither be written off nor be changed no matter how desperately one may resort to denial and distortion.

If one nation was despised by another nation with its pride hurt by the latter in the past, the former can never forget it no matter how much water may flow under the bridge.

Not only the countries of victims but also other nations in the world are raising their voices, calling for Japan's atonement for its past crimes.

Japan should refrain from rash acts, clearly understanding the trend of the times.

If it persists in its impudent acts as now, it will be subject to a pelting rain of kicks and blows.
