"In the past, Japan, through its colonial rule and aggression, caused tremendous damage and suffering to the people of many countries, particularly to those of Asian nations," Mr Koizumi said during the opening of the Asia-Africa Summit.
·1972 The prime minister, Kakuei Tanaka, says the Japanese are "keenly conscious of the responsibility for the serious damage that Japan caused in the past to the Chinese people".
·1992 Emperor Akihito becomes the first Japanese monarch to visit China and says he "deplored" the sufferings brought upon China by Japan, but offers no apology.
·1995 The prime minister, Tomiichi Murayama, expresses "feelings of deep remorse" and a "heartfelt apology" for the "tremendous damage and suffering" Japan caused, particularly to Asian nations.
·1998 The prime minister, Keizo Obuchi, says Japan is "keenly conscious of the responsibility for the serious distress and damage that Japan caused to the Chinese people".
·2001 The Prime Minister, Junichiro Koizumi, issues a "heartfelt apology and condolences for those Chinese people who were the victims of aggression".
"Our country has caused great damages and pain to people in many countries, especially our Asian neighbors, through colonization and invasion," Koizumi said in a statement. At a ceremony shortly thereafter, Koizumi and Emperor Akihito - son of wartime Emperor Hirohito - bowed before an alter of chrysanthemums at a nationally televised service for the nation's estimated 3 million war dead.
So, no more than FIVE of Japan's latest prime ministers have at SIX occasions expressed their apologies for the war crimes in China and other places. Maybe your government hasn't told you this?
What more do you want? Them to kow-tow, bend over, grab their ankles and wait for you? The 63-year old prime minister of Japan was three years old when Japan surrenderd in WWII...
Furthermore, you should be very careful expressing stuff such as "correct attitude towards the history", because China above all nations have a severe problems with its attitude toward history. This is proven by the c*ensor_sh*p that is carried out on this very forum as soon as one tries to discuss recent (and even remote in time) historical events in this country.
You need to open your eyes.
