I am very confused because I found the following news.
It says that on August 6, 2014, the Asahi Shimbun, pro-Korean and liberal news paper in Japan, admitted to serious errors in many articles on the “comfort women” issue, retracting all stories going back decades that quoted a Japanese man who claimed he kidnapped about 200 Korean women and forced them to work at wartime Japanese military brothels. It means that as far as the present-day Korean Peninsula is concerned, no hard evidence had been found to show the Japanese military was directly involved in recruiting women to the brothel system against their will.
Is this memorial based NOT on historical facts, but on political propaganda to bully Japan and the Japanese?
I was very shocked by the news that 122 Korean women claimed that "we were the U.S. military comfort women", and sued the class action lawsuit on June 25, 2014.
The USA itself is very deeply committed to this Korean "comfort women" matter as an assailant of violence against women. If the issue is a human rights concern for the future of all nations, these events should be held to memorialize all "Comfort Women," including females who were forced into sexual slavery by the USA military and Korean Government itself during and after Korean War. The monument should engrave the phrase on the statue "We were the U.S. military sex slave too." Glendale should not be hypocrite.
