COMFORT WOMEN: THE CONTINUING SAGA

I didn't want to write about this anymore but it seems that some people wouldn't stop until they have cleansed their countries history by erasing their past wrongdoings.
" A group of Japanese lawmakers and conservatives on Friday protested US congressional demands for a clear apology over wartime sexual slavery, saying the women were not slaves but just making money.

The group, which included 13 national lawmakers and more than 200 local politicians, intellectuals and journalists, gave the US embassy a protest letter saying they were "surprised and shocked" by the US pressure for a fresh apology to so-called "comfort women."

They denied sexual slavery ever existed at front-line brothels during World War II, saying the women were generally paid."

Please read the rest of the article here.

In addition to my past opinions, I believe that the best way to stop this historical revisionists will be to flood them with overwhelming evidences. Before they poison the minds of the young, every Japanese bulletin board should be posted with notes reminding them of what really happened.

Let me start with some web finds. Post your additions in the comment section and/or paste it in your own blogs, as well.
