Japan apology again, again, again…….never enough

Japan apology again, again, again
…….never enough

The Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe has “convened a panel of experts this week to advise him on what to say to mark the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II on Aug. 15.”  Mr. Abe is expected by some to repeat an apology for perceived transgressions by Imperial Japan.

The apology parade started with a Japanese Prime Minister around 1995 and continued with subsequent Japanese Prime Ministers.  Why?  Was not the first apology enough?  Have a parade of German chancellors apologized?   How about the legion of Italian Prime Minister’s for Italy’s role during World War Two in Libya and Ethiopia?   

Have recent commie Chinese dictators apologized for Mao’s murder of over thirty million of his own people?   When did the president of South Korea apologize for the massacres committed by South Korean troops against South Koreans during the Korean War?

It is about time the British Prime Minister apologize for his troops burning the American White House during the War of 1812?  The spark that ignited the American Civil War (1861 – 1865) was when the South fired upon Fort Sumter in April of 1861.  Can we expect Southerners in the USA to apologize?

Repeated apologies for the same event is useless and reduces the impact of the first apology.  Also why is it Japan must continue to apologize when other nations only apologized once for the past transgressions if they apologized at all?
