That's the kind of stupid opinion I'd expect from a Korean. Nanjing was far worse. But keep thinking it was the worst if it makes you feel better.
The Korean government already accepted payment for what happened. End of story..
Criminal should repent...not excuse...

That's an excuse...If Japanese government don't follow UN's recommendation, then Japanese government should leave from UN.
That's the rule.

I think Japanese government didn't pay for North Korea. even China.
That's not end of story, but beginning of the story for criminal.

According to the testimony, Japanese official lied and took the women to the army...And then they forced women to sex with soldiers.
The worst war crime in the history....But still criminal didn't repent.
A newspaper in South Korea reported on August 14, 1989 that local residents in the Jeju island denied the comfort women issue.

And the testimonies of ex-comfort women simply lacks credibility because they have changed their stories so many times.

Furthermore, some of them were arrested for fraud.

Victims are very old. Every Wednesday, there is a protest in front of the Japanese embassy in Seoul,. You can meet victims directly, and can listen their testimonies directly. Also there is a museum.
You can find enough information. https://www.womenandwar.net/contents/home/hom...

Now I understand why the UM ask Japanese government to teach general public.

There was no demand for the compensation from China, Because, today's China didn't exist when Japan was defeated in 1945.
However, Japan started to pay a lot of money to China as the form of ODA.
The compensation for North Korea was included in the compensation that the South Korean government received.
That was done on the premise that the South Korean government will pay it to North Korea when they are reunited.

I've never heard that the premise that the South Korean government will pay it to North Korea when they are reunited. Where did you get that info ?

What you means that Japan give the money for North to the South ?
No....That's not correct.

Mainstream media leaves you depressed, dumbed down, empty and hopeless.

Truth based media gives you a heads up and broadens your horizons. It protects your family, health, and life savings. It's your decision...

http://www.infowars.com/leaked-u-s-army-docum...

Once you have a taste of truthful reporting you never go back to mainstream contrived corporate media.

These hosts bash Republicans and Democrats equally because they know both sides are illuminati bought puppets out to screw us.

Give alternative news sources a chance before you knock them. Download these shows to your MP3 players and listen on your way to work or whatever. All you need from mainstream media is breaking news and traffic/weather. You can listen to all these shows on your smart phone as well.

Exposes US Gov Corruption and Global Wide Illuminati Plots

(Skip around, you'll learn something useful)

Exposes Wallstreet and absolutely teaches you how to protect your money from the crooked banksters

http://www.philsgang.com/pgfreeshowarchives.a...

Exposes Secret/Ancient Knowledge Suppressed In Modern History Books and suppressed medical cures/prevention for diseases like cancer, etc. This guy is a medical doctor.

http://www.soundwaves2000.com/radio_liberty/

Often Exposes NASA Disinformation and Possible Offworld Intelligence -Search "Coast to Coast 2012 Shows" on Youtube and listen or use downloader -This is one way /Or get a CC Witness radio and record AM from your local affiliate. There is CIA disinfo injected from some of the guests but you learn how to identify it after a while by researching the guests' backgrounds. The hosts are simply great.

http://www.youtube.com/user/C2CVAULT...

Connects Bible Predictions/Prophecy to Modern Day Events -How Illuminati uses bible prophecy to plan false flag disasters eg. earthquakes, etc. There could also be some CIA brainwashing here as well from some of the guest lecturers but they give a heads up of what to look out for/predict down the road. The host does a good job of teaching about the bible and does not fear political correctness.

http://prophecyclub.com/TPC_Audio_Video.html

These radio hosts should do a show together or at least make guest appearences on each others shows. They all value truth and liberty in their own way.

Here's my take on it. Don't be afraid to speak out as we are all on some type of list by now:

You have to understand that free speech on the net is about to be clamped down on in America.-mainland China style.

Don't you have nothing to say about the newspaper and the fraud?
Because of their age? It is understandable if those were slight changes.
Of course, people forget, but their changes were.....lol
As for teaching general public, I say exactly the same to you.

To get back to the subject, i do think it's a very weird idea.

I don't know which article you mentioned.
Does that is Korea newspaper or Japanese newspaper?

What I am thinking is that Japanese government should follow the UN's recommendation. If other country invaded your country, and took 200,000 women for sex slavery, then you may understand my mind.

That's the worst crime in the history.

It's Korean newspaperóJeju newspaper. Can you read Korean? If so, please search.

Whatever the recommendation is, why do you insist on it so much?

Should it be between two countries?

Why not helping and saving today's comfort women?

They've still been suffering for over half a century even after WW-II. Just the customers were changed from the Japanese army to the USA army, but their business has kept on going..

We need to stop their violence and save poor women.
