…World War II Sexual Slavery

"On January 8 a South Korean central district court in Seoul ruled that Japan should compensate 12 Korean women forced into a system of sexual slavery set up and operated by the Japanese Imperial Army from 1932 to 1945, The Wall Street Journal reports.

The ruling, which states that Tokyo should pay each plaintiff around $90,000 USD, was rejected out of hand by the Japanese government, further straining ties between the two key U.S. allies.

Seems like a very small sum to pay for such abuse, especially given that it was so long ago.

I suspect the Japanese don't want to, and won't do that, since it could open the floodgates to even more claims, with far more money involved.

Plus, they'd have to openly admit they were wrong, and from what I understand of the Asian cultures, that is a very difficult thing to do.
