Prime Minister Aso?

Perhaps the favorite candidate for Koizumi's post, Aso has been making some rather nationalist statements. No surprise as his family ran a mine that used Korean and Allied POW slave labor in WW2.

Like Japan itself, neither Aso or his family has ever apologized or offered any payment to these people. Gee, wonder why so many countries which were invaded and brutalized by the Japanese in World War Two don't believe that the Japanese government really means it when they "apologize" for some bad things that happened during the war.

Japan Focus has a good article on Aso and many other Japan-related topics. Read it here.
