Will's Soapbox
(or Another Example of the Mouse That Roared)

I happened to be searching news briefs on Wikipedia under "2008 in the United States" when I happened across this article. There's something really sickening, to me, about the fact that Japan, who has to this day not apologized for the Rape of Nanking, taking America to task for this crime (which, if you notice, had not yet been incontrivertibly proven as of when this article was written).

"It is unforgivable," Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda told a parliamentary panel in his first public comments on the latest incident on Okinawa, host to a huge U.S. military presence.
"It has happened over and over again in the past and I take it as a grave case."

Ask the Chinese what happened OVER AND OVER AGAIN throughout the 1930's and 1940's, Prime Minister. Ask THEM if they find the atrocities Japanese soldiers heaped upon Chinese women--girls, in many cases--are unforgivable. Your hypocrisy, Mr Prime Minister, is appalling. And that's all I have to say.
