I must say I quite welcome Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s comments that there was no proof that the so-called "comfort women" had been forced into military brothels during the World War II. In fact, I half-hope that he dons his Shinto robes and visit the Yasukuni Shrine sometime soon. Better yet, maybe we could have Emperor Akihito break the practice since 1975 and go pay respects to the shrine where class-A war criminals are honored.
