Japan sticks to its guns!
As a Traditional native American I agree and we natives must follow their lead!
In that Shrine are the pawns of that war without a choice of right or wrong, just Obey!
Can’t say ours was a war, more like they had the fire power and used it all on us!
Our ancestors were all the pawns of that/this war!
If you think about it the government still has the fire power and is still using it!
Another big difference is, when this government destroyed Japan and Germany it spent billions rebuilding their country, when this government destroyed the first people it just kept on destroying!
Yes, and they ( the Japanese) should be admired for that because only a hand fill of tyrants controlled their war.
Every non native was at war with our ancestors like it or not?
Compare this to ever self-effacing Germany asking for the world’s forgiveness again and again and again, even though she knows quite well that no matter how many apologies are made, those who run today’s world call the shots in the media, publishing houses and education, will never ever forgive Germany.
Rather than commit historical hara-kiri as the Germans do, Japan prefers to keep a stiff upper lip, stand tall and continue to bear the consequences.
A big P.S.
There was a third in that axis powers party in that war, Italy, this country has not asked for forgiveness or refused to apologize?
