Thanks for the comment.
I've thought that we, Japanese should insist our own opinions in English. Or, other countries's people wouldn't understand us. That's why I'm sometimes writing about current affairs.

Your topic is interesting, and I'm going to take it as material of my blog. Japan's rule over the occupied territory was completely different from that of the U.S. and European superpowers such as Great Britain, France, Spain and so on. I'd like to insist this point in the entry.

Doc - hi there and guten Tag!

Yes, I agree with you on most of the points you made. But since I am known for direct talk (I hate "gomazuri"!!!!!) - Japan is not the only country appologizing for something that happened a long time ago. Germany did and still has to do this on a couple of occassions, the (Jewish) genozide, the war atrocities commited in Poland, Russia and so on, and much more. Lots of money has been paid and is still being paid to those victims. Actually, if I am not wrong, no Japanese politician has so far officially apologized for what happend during World War II in occupied territories. Nevertheless - YES, North Korea is a very special topic and I hope that sooner or later they, the people in North Korea, will get rid of that system (and there are other countries that can be blamed for wrong-doings, too). I hope I don't offend anyone with this way of thinking. Looking forward to hearing from you again!!!

Kumo-san, I find this article very interesting, educational and thought-provoking. Thank you. By the way, your English is perfect.
