Abe to stoke the fires more

Next step in rescinding the 1993 "apology" for comfort women is for the LDP (!!) to reinvestigate the whole issue. It would of course be based on objective facts, not the evidence of non-approved Japanese historians, and certainly not that of untrustworthy lying foreigners who want to harm innocent Japan, and by nature ignore the emotional testimony of women who claim to be victims---since it never happened they are lying anyway.

According to the Japan Times and the BBC, Abe is considering exactly that move. Gee, shall we guess that if it comes about that Japan will be found to be basically pure and innocent? At least the kind, compassionate Japanese Imperial Army will come out clean. I would love to be wrong about the outcome, but does anyone wanna bet?
