Japanese PM says Tokyo will stop apologizing for aggression in World War II.

71
The Japanese authorities, catching the trend spreading from the territory of the “progressive” Western countries, said that this year they could abandon the traditional repentance for aggression during the Second World War. This, in particular, was announced by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. According to him, the speech will be delivered, but there will be no words about Japanese aggression and the desire for colonialism.

Japanese PM says Tokyo will stop apologizing for aggression in World War II.


Shinzo Abe:
We have already repented many times. I do not see the need to do it again and again. In the traditional speech, dedicated to the anniversary of the end of the Second World War, the words “aggression” and “colonial domination” will not exist, there will be my new words.


It should be noted that for the first time the above-mentioned terms sounded on 15 August 1995 of the year - on the 50-th anniversary of the recognition by the Japanese emperor of defeat in WWII. 20 years ago, this formulation was used by Premier Tomiichi Murayama. On the 60 anniversary of the end of the war, Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi used these words.

In addition to statements in the “stop repenting” style, the Japanese authorities once again visited the Yasukuni temple, which is the burial place of the Japanese war criminals of the Second World War era. Japanese Prime Minister Abe made offerings to the temple, which caused outrage among China and Korea, who suffered most from Japanese aggression more than 70 years ago.

      The Japanese are very noble fall under the Americans. It is strange that they build an independent and proud people, but they forgot how they felt the nuclear bomb on them.

        The Japanese will take the right step. It has long been known that you can never confess, repent and admit guilt - this is a manifestation of weakness. And the strong ones themselves will make anyone guilty.

          (or I did not catch your sarcasm) If the recognition of such atrocities is a "weakness" - then, for example, there is nothing to talk about with you. The link has a video and indeed Yandex to help detachment 731, the massacre in Nanjing, the massacre in Manila ...

            Europeans (including us) do not understand the Asian and, in particular, Japanese mentality. The Japanese still scornfully look at other Asian peoples (this can be observed at the household level) and if you happen to willingly take on the old, and you won’t get it out of them. Moreover, other Asian peoples are inherently no better than the Japanese and, being polite and courteous in peacetime, will be real beasts in war.

              In the 2000s, I was engaged in Japan and Japanese subjects, which included some Japanese "shrines" such as butsudan and soputka ... and by the nature of my work I met with fans of all things Japanese ... samurai. Shintoism and other proverbs .. and met and talked with the Japanese themselves on these topics and as a simple example, the Japanese bewildered by our "Ivan's" hobby for their religion ... so he says - how! as? my ancestors can be a deity for "John" is he that the ancestors of the Japanese?
              That is, to put it simply - their rules, religion and a certain "etiquette" apply only to their own people, with all others, they are free to act as "God's chosen". ))) direct competitors so to speak)))

        Thanks to America, the Japanese have pumped up their economy with money, rebuilt world-class industry and raised the standard of living to American-European. For the sake of this, it made sense to tolerate the presence of the US military on its territory and following Washington's foreign policy in the wake. But whether this will continue further, I’m not sure.

    There can be no repentance on the part of Japan. The Japanese must do everything "right". Japanese society is built on the medieval feudal principle of loyalty to a superior. At the top of the Japanese hierarchy is the divine emperor. The emperor is infallible, therefore Japan is infallible. Perhaps Japan was under the dominant influence of the United States after 1904. What Japan did, it did for the United States. And even an attack on Pearl Harbor was necessary for the United States to enter the war. After the Second World War, the divine had to recognize itself as a vassal of the United States. But the USA is also infallible. USA is good. When they do evil, it is only in the name of good. You need to learn from them. But to create their own system of values, which can only be diametrically opposite to their system.

      The Pope is also infallible, and Europeans probably also thought so, and judging by their actions, they also think so.
      After 1904, Japan was under British influence. America then only declared itself. Until 1945, Japan did everything for itself, and it so happened that it pulled America out of depression. But then, am, the whole world helped the Germans, we and the Britons.

    What is Tsushima, Dalniy, Wafangou? And who reassured whom?

    The Japanese will take the right step. It has long been known that you can never confess, repent and admit guilt - this is a manifestation of weakness. And the strong ones themselves will make anyone guilty.

    But ours are still under-polished either the Poles or the condolences, although no fault!
