  1. Yes they should have to apologize for their ancestors mistakes .empirial japan caused much tragedy in that region. But the world has to also acknowledge that this generation of Japanese aren’t the perpetrators. It wouldn’t kill the Japanese to make some form of apology/recognition to Korea so it could strengthen a future alliance to contain china.

  2. We don’t pay a lot of attention to the fact that Japan killed more Chinese people during World War II than the Nazis killed Jews. Their actions during the Rape of Nanjing were so horrible that an actual Nazi Party member named John Rabe intervened to save Chinese civilians — he is to the Chinese as Schindler (also a Nazi Party member) is to Jews. And Japan had already turned Koreans into slaves in pretty much every respect. Japan has a lot to apologize for. Never Again!
