    Japan and Germany, two of the war criminal nations of WWII, are very different. Unlike Germany that apologized for their crimes to the international community and built their trust through honesty, Japan is denying to repent for their shameful test and rationalizing their distortion of the history.

    Japan's Rising Sun Flag symbolizes Japan's imperialism that led to the massacre of 20 million people during the invasions by Imperial Japanese Army. The Japanese waved the flag and used the design in the athlete's uniforms at the Olympic games, which symbolizes world peace. This is the equivalent of Germans waving the Nazi Germany Flag during the Olympic games. This is an insult to human dignity.

    Japan still covets for other country's territory. Japan will not be welcomed in the international community if it persists its efforts to distort the past, revive imperialism, and refuse to apologize for its past crimes.

    That is, of course, not true. Japan has apologized over and over and over and over since the end of the war. Legal issues between the nations involved have been resolved (attested to by official documents signed by the aforementioned nations), relations have been normalized, and Japan has paid many billions in reparations. This in addition to private donations made by Japanese citizens.

    Stop posting misinformation.

    Takeshima is disputed territory. For some reason, South Korea refuses to allow the International Court of Justice to arbitrate the dispute.

    Japan is, and has long been, an integral part of the international community.

    Doko is not a disputed territory. it belongs to South Korea since adam was a boy.
    South Korea is not necessary to confirm Japan's crap asking.

    Takeshima is, of course, disputed territory. Any hope of resolving the dispute will require both sides to act like grown ups.

    As usual, when the lie of "they never apologized!" is revealed, the argument suddenly changes to, "yeah, well, not good enough. We want another one!" It's like clockwork.


    Official, legal documents have been signed by various nations, billions in reparations have been paid, donations have been raised by private Japanese citizens, and literally dozens of official apologies have been offered and accepted, but whenever it is politically expedient to get the masses all worked up, the lie "they never apologized!" is dragged out again. And every time it works, because the people start going crazy as if on cue.
