Comfort Women “Nothing But Prostitutes”

comfort-women-ad.jpg

A statement alleging wartime “comfort women” were nothing more than common prostitutes who “earned incomes far in excess of even generals,” and endorsed by a slew of eminent Japanese establishment figures including ex-PM Abe, has been published in a US newspaper.

The ad was published in New Jersey’s Star Ledger as a response to earlier advertising promoting Korea’s case, all of which is part of a long-running series of efforts by East Asian nationalists to interest the American public in their tedious squabbles (or possibly merely make them hate Japan as much as they do):

The video referenced in the advertisement:

With little in the way of impartial historical documentation and the subject largely being of interest to crazed patriots, assertions regarding the “comfort women” issue have become increasingly extreme.

Korean nationalists now insist the Japanese military spirited away hundreds of thousands of Korean women for use as sex slaves, whilst Japanese nationalists largely maintain that they were nothing more than money-grubbing camp followers and that the whole issue is being used by Korean nationalists to stoke anti-Japanese sentiment and milk compensation payouts.

The Korean government recognises 234 women as former sex slaves, whilst the Japanese government has issued various apologies and paid the South Korean government several hundred million dollars in war reparations.

Despite this the issue remains a matter of obsessive interest to many Koreans, and with most of Japan’s incoming politicians apparently in no mood to be endlessly victimised by their neighbours, no end seems to be in sight to the issue.

    Because every now and then politicians from both camps would bring up history, or their version of it, to rally public support for themselves.

    Most major issues championed by politicians weren't motivated by doing what's right. It's all about using it to manipulate general opinion and influence voters. That's why they'll continue to dig old graves back to the surface and beat the dead horse for as long as they please.

    If only people are smart enough to realize that those who politicize infernal issues are not benefitting those directly concerned.

    Because neither china, japan, or korea can find something to be really proud of after being ass fucked by the world like a virgin 12 year old something that got gang raped by hoods when she stepped into a wrong neighborhood.

    They must masturbate over the dead body of their grandparents to find some kind of excuse to bitch.

    There are many people are bitching about something what happened before born just to take advantage and say "You are sons of sinners so I am better than you!"

    "With little in the way of impartial historical documentation and the subject largely being of interest to crazed patriots, assertions regarding the “comfort women” issue have become increasingly extreme."

    Yup, sankaku. Those dirty, smelly, kimchi-eating Koreans are just batshit insane, aren't they? I'm sure the only ones crazy enough to give a shit about this non-issue are the irrational Chinese and Korean horde.

    "From 1932 to the end of World War II, the government of Japan officially ordered the acquisition of an estimated 200 000 young women and girls – euphemistically known as “comfort women” - for the sole purpose of sexual servitude to the Japanese Imperial Army. The "comfort women" system included gang rape, forced abortions, humiliation, and sexual violence resulting in mutilation, death or eventual suicide, in what has been described as one of the largest cases of human trafficking in the 20th century."

    http://www.amnesty.eu/static/documents/2009/B906ComfortWomenSwedPres.pdf

    Except... you know, the Amnesty International. But I'm sure they're penetrated by Korean and Chinese spies.

    "Canada's parliament unanimously passed a motion Wednesday calling on Japan to sincerely apologize to foreign women forced into military brothels during World War II."

    "The US Congress and Dutch Parliament have already passed similar motions."

    http://afp.google.com/article/ALeqM5g2W6b2AKn18yWn-ZEnS9YdknaDBg

    Oh wait. Canadians? The US? Dear god, how far does this Cino-Korean influence reach? This vast anti-japanese conspiracy must be stopped.

    /sarcasm end

    Seriously, sankaku. I used to think you're quite awesome. But this? FUCK YOU.

    ""The Special Naval Police (Tokei Tai) had ordered to keep the brothels supplied with women; to this end they arrested women on the streets and after enforced medical examination placed them in the brothels," one document, titled Prosecution Document No. 5330, says. The report on "comfort women" in western Borneo was prepared by the Netherlands Forces Intelligence Service."

    http://www.japantimes.co.jp/text/nn20070418a5.html

    Mmmm, juicy. Of course, the paper is only named "The Japan Times" and the person wrote the article has a Japanese name, so it's obviously part of the Cino-Korean conspiracy.

    http://foreignaffairs.house.gov/110/ohe021507.htm

    "The Government study has revealed that in many cases they were recruited against their own will, through coaxing coercion, etc., and that, at times, administrative/military personnel directly took part in the recruitments. They lived in misery at comfort stations under a coercive atmosphere.

    As to the origin of those comfort women who were transferred to the war areas, excluding those from Japan, those from the Korean Peninsula accounted for a large part. The Korean Peninsula was under Japanese rule in those days, and their recruitment, transfer, control, etc., were conducted generally against their will, through coaxing, coercion, etc.

    Undeniably, this was an act, with the involvement of the military authorities of the day, that severely injured the honor and dignity of many women. The Government of Japan would like to take this opportunity once again to extend its sincere apologies and remorse to all those, irrespective of place of origin, who suffered immeasurable pain and incurable physical and psychological wounds as comfort women.

    It is incumbent upon us, the Government of Japan, to continue to consider seriously, while listening to the views of learned circles, how best we can express this sentiment.

    We shall face squarely the historical facts as described above instead of evading them, and take them to heart as lessons of history. We hereby reiterated our firm determination never to repeat the same mistake by forever engraving such issues in our memories through the study and teaching of history."

    http://www.mofa.go.jp/policy/women/fund/state9308.html

    Strong words, but the one who made that statement is only the "Chief Cabinet Secretary." I'm sure he's a Cino-Korean half breed.

    Please just end this issue...

    As an Japanese-Korean living in Australia (Born in Korea; my dad is Korean and my mum is Japanese), I just don't like both countries having tense relationship because of these kind of topics.

    It might have nothing to do with me since I live in oversea but it's still sad to see how the Japanese-Korean relationship has been same as ever...

    I was on another site during one of those "This is punishment for Pearl Harbor" rants by idiots and this woman was bragging that she was using the skull of a Japanese soldier that her uncle had brought home made into an ashtray and the family acted like it was sacred heirloom! How sick and twisted can you get?

    It's ok. By the time we are "in power" all the old people would be dead, and we can start a new relation of "Let's forget what these old bastards had to say against each of us, and start a new".

    But the people really in power aren't those still alive anyway. When the worst comes to the worst, all the latter claim they can do is hone the fossilized barf of preconceptions built to guard foregone interests or make people unaware they're just killing time. Or subtract from what's already there.

    I loved the LB scene where Masato and Riki ridicule the way history is being taught.

    How bout in Malaysia and other countries? Jap armies forced them to be their sex slaves. Not just in Korea and china. So all of those women were whores? I doubt it. It's bad to make general assumption such as this. We can't change the past, just learn from it to shape a better future.

    I don't understand why you are bring up the point of Malaysian sex slaves, in a thread topic that started with "Let's end this bull shit". Yes, I agree that we should learn from history, but I think it's stupid to focus on the Imperial Japan as the only EVIL that existed in such manner. I am pretty sure our modern US military exhibit the SAME kind of actions (even in Politics), as well history have shown other countries doing it.

    Am I endorsing it, no. What I am saying is that, stop singling out Japan.

    I know readers in SanCom is very Pro Japan. You are missing the point here. The way the Japanese government and public denies historical facts is ignorance at best, incrediably offensive and imoral to the victims involved, lacks sincerity and decency of being human. What people want is merely apologies. WWII is 60 years ago, is it really so hard to apologise for something your ancestors had done?

    I think you SHOULD Go Blame the politicians about the tense relationship.

    BECAUSE THAT'S Their Proganda and ultimately create HATRED between those 2 Nations.

    and they won't quit like FOREVER.

    I bet the politicians will say something ridiculous.

    HEY LOOK! WE'RE DOING THIS FOR OUR COUNTRY!!!!

    and what happen next? Flee their life to other country and create bunch of lies?

    Because RIGHT NOW , VERY RARE politicians Think about the safety of the civilians , THEY JUST WANT MONEY.

    How about a man who speaks of facts? Hell even japanese women in japan like korean guys because they have more backbone.

    In Asia, japanese women are stereotyped as 'asking to be raped', 'VERY easy', 'loose', 'good meat'. All thanks to shitty japanese AV exported by japanese themselves.
