No ‘comfort women’ fund until removal of Seoul statue: Japan source: Japan just sealed a deal with South Korea (not China!) to pay reparations to the tiny handful of still alive ‘comfort women’, aka, ‘sex slaves’ they abused during WWII. No sooner were the Japanese names inked, one of the men ran off to tell the right wing Japanese nationalists that the only way Japan will pay a single yen to these women is if the South Korean government removes this statue commemorating the victims of Japanese aggression. The South Korean people are up in arms now about this and the deal has collapsed to the great satisfaction of the Japanese imperialist elites.

Japan government continues to deny responsibility for sex slavery as the fascist Abe regime terrorizes anyone who talks about past WWII aggressions. This is the same week Europe is holding a celebration of the freeing the last survivors of Nazi extermination efforts in Poland…by not inviting Russia to the party even though Russian soldiers were the liberators. Meanwhile, in Japan, denial of WWII crimes is climbing fast with the US snoozing over this, refusing to punish the Japanese leaders.
I was thoroughly disgusted when the Asahi Simbun news people retracted all mention of ‘comfort women’ WWII crimes. This caused both China and both Koreas to issue formal complaints which Japan ignored totally. Now, More than 8,700 people sue Asahi Shimbun over ‘comfort women’ stories ‹ Japan Today: Japan News and Discussion:
Here is a Washington Post editorial written by Ogata Sadako: The Japan-South Korea rivalry must end: it is behind a paywall but the essence is easy to summarize: this right wing lady thinks all the problems in Asia are caused by pesky neighbors bringing up WWII Japanese war crimes and it is ruining relations so they had better stop because they are stupid.
The only thing that still floats the US dollar is our gigantic trade deficit. This is also destroying our nation and so it is a dangerous thing, not a good thing. The US elites are addicted to the trade deficit crack so they smoke that pipe until they drop dead: RMB to be global reserve currency by 2030: Justin Yifu Lin
As the US illegally invades, bombs or sends terrorists into countries all over the planet, as the US threatens war on behalf of Japan or various former Soviet States or ethnic groups in former Yugoslavia and of course, enables, funds and assists Jewish land thefts and war moves…is outraged that Russia moved fast to protect Russian nationals from a far right wing ethnic takeover in Kiev. The US forces all allies to support US boycotts of innocent Cuba or Iran which has never invaded anyone in the last few hundred years while at the same time protects Israel when they bomb anyone they wish including US navy ships that have no weapons. And the US supports violent coups in Egypt and Libya and also demands China chop itself up, too. While at the same time telling Palestinians they have no right to their homes because Jews want these, too, so tough luck.
I have always been very concerned about the decline and fall of Great Empires and know this is intimately tied to trade. The UK used to rule the world and look at today: Poll says Labour still on course for 2015 victory – but UKIP is now Britain’s ‘favourite’ political party: this astonishing rise of a nativist movement is due to the flood of aliens via the new EU rules. David Cameron has LOST a third of Conservative voters since the last election, shock poll reveals shows that the far right is peeling away from the middle right just like in the US. The news this week that China is the world’s #1 trade power has slugged the sluggards who created the New World Order in the snout. They still assure everyone that the UK and US are the world’s #1 banking power but this is due mainly to madly buying up the debts of these two world trade loser nations at a frantic pace to keep the banks solvent.
The Washington Post published an editorial by the Japanese ambassador who is busy whitewashing the Yasukuni Shrine insult to all Americans who fought in WWII and all of Japan’s war victims. Japan is also sort of in the news over the slaughter of dolphins using clubs and knives and the Fukushima mess…that is, not mainstream US news but on the internet. The push to make Japan our good ally is following the same lines that Israel enjoys, namely, The gross censorship by our media, hiding terrible things so we can go to war again. And the Washington Post is the worst of the lot and seems to get worse by the minute after Bezos, a huge exploiter of labor, owning it.
