If 200,000 women were truly coerced into sex slavery by force as the “historians” say on U.S. newspapers, there would have been a rebellion or at least several more that number of eyewitnesses and people would have kept the records either in official papers or at least in their diaries. However, the Korean Government and people didn’t mention even a word of it in the negotiation process of 1965 Peace Treaty and brought this issue on table early in 1990s as if they suddenly came out of coma. This fact clearly indicates that the “Comfort Women” issue is just a propaganda campaign of Korean people to defame Japan or obtain money in the form of “compensation.” Therefore, no apologies anymore!!

I just want to highlight that Toshiaki has a one man mission to reply to every article on the internet about what the japanese did in WW2 were justified.

Go on the internet and search for his name.

He even setup a webpage about it.

He has a hatred for Korean people and I think his logical and thinking is flaw due to this.

Have a read at the comments section of this article:

Toshiaki just stated his opinion, so I don't see what your problem is.
Because we all know that sex slavery should never be condoned, the point is about what actually happened, isn't it?
For example, rape is a criminal allegation that is easy to claim and difficult for a defendant to disprove.
Do you think that there has been no man jailed for false rape testimony?
