The indictment of Ms. Park Yu-ha, a professor of Sejong University who wrote the book titled as The Comfort Women of the Empire, was shocking news. I read the book. I do not agree with all what she said in the book, but found nothing that should be called “defamation” by the former comfort women. Is S. Korea a Mediaeval Society where people are looking for heretics? It appears there is no academic freedom, no freedom of speech and press in South Korea. The trial is the Inquisition practiced by the Roman Catholic Church in the 15th century, or a witch trial to torture a heretic. How can Japan get along with such a country so primitive and brainwashed by anti-Japan fanatic cult religion? We should break apart from the three-party alliance no matter what the U. S. says to us.

During the recent summit meeting between Prime Minister Abe and President Park which was held on November 2, President Park demanded Japanese Government to present “a proposal that will sufficiently regain the peace of mind of the former comfort women and satisfy the South Korean general public.” President Park has repeated this demand so often at various press conferences in Seoul, during her address to the UN general assembly, during her meeting with President Obama, and so on. According to the Sankei Newspaper, a reporter of the news company visited the home of a former comfort woman Lee Yong-soo in mid-October and asked what she wants for the Japanese Government to do in order to “solve the Comfort Women Issue.” She replied, “We want Prime Minister Abe to come to the Japanese Embassy in Seoul and beg forgiveness from us. Furthermore, we want all the succeeding prime ministers of Japan to do the same. Then we may forgive all the misery we experienced.” In other words, all primes ministers of Japan, once assumed the office, have to go to Seoul and kowtow to the former comfort women. Otherwise, no apology of any sort is satisfactory for these women and S. Korean people. The author assumes however that their real intent is to subjugate Japan to serve S. Korea forever by making Japan’s prime ministers kowtow to them. However absurd it may sound for any people who live in this 21st century, they mean it. What had over-inflated the ego of these former prostitutes to this extent? Maybe, holier-than-thou Americans who sided with them to build comfort women memorials in the United States had some share of pushing the issue to this absurdity. Whatever the reasons, therefore, NO compromise of any kind whatsoever is possible for Japan.

THE NATIONAL INTEREST carried the article with the above title. http://nationalinterest.org/blog/why-south-korea-so-obsessed-japan-13065#comment-2080991427 I put the following comment on the article. ======== S. Korea is basically an ugly old bixch who was refused to marry and stalking on you. She constantly appears at your doorstep, street corner, railway station and office, cursing and belching bitter words and grudges of being refused to marry a log time ago. from Tokyo, Japan ========

History distortionists and life-long Japan-bashers like Alexis Dudden unreasonably cultivate hatred between Japan and Korea even after 70 years have passed since the end of the war in their malicious attempt to tarnish the reputation of the present-day Japanese. As the result, the investment of the Japanese companies in South Korea has sharply dropped, and the number of the Japanese tourists visiting S. Korea has also dropped sharply, making the country poor and poor every year.

Prof. Hata’s most recent remarks (as of May16, 2015) I am representing 19 Japanese historians who made the request of corrections to McGraw-Hill, and I have received NO answer yet. We sent to them the errata. It appears to me that they are going to ignore our request and keep errors as simple as 1+1=3 put on the textbook. I want to hear the opinions of conscientious American historians how they feel about it.

Like Prime Minister Abe, the author was so shocked when I first read the description of comfort women put on the McGraw-Hill textbook. Mr. Ziegler, the writer of the description, should apologize for telling the baseless lies by making some public statement.
