Abe’s WWII Talk Requested To Include Key Word “Sorry”

Various Japanese government figures have revealed that China has persistently requested Japan’s prime minister Shinzō Abe to include the key words “colony”, “invasion” and “sorry” in his forthcoming talk on WWII’s 70th anniversary, which is to be held after August the 10th. Japanese newspaper Sankei Shimbun reported that this campaign of persuasion began after Abe’s press conference on January the 5th following his visit to the Grand Ise Shrine, where he said Japan must reflect on the last great war in the talk. One netizen said an apology still wouldn’t mean ordinary people could afford real-estate.

    The snarky me says Japan should apologize to the Chinese people for killing innocent Chinese during WWII on one condition… that the CCP apologizes for killing innocent Chinese on 6/4.

    If I was Abe I would never be able to resist…

      I agree Japan should apologize but your logic is faulty. You don’t hold back an apology because another country won’t apologize to it’s own people for something that had nothing to do with you.

        They already apologized.

        • KamikaziPilot

          I know but it seems certain politicians always try to go back and qualify the past apologies, make idiotic comments, or the other Asian countries want more apologies, etc. I just disagree with the logic that the OP used. Ex. demanding an apology for something totally unrelated before apologizing yourself.

      That is not the only time the CCP has to apologize for killing their own.

  • WghUk

    Abe’s third law of politics, every “sorry” is backed up by an equal and opposite provocative action.

    If an apology is forced. . is it genuine?
