US Congressman Calls For Japan to Make Amends

Wow, this is good and encouraging!

U.S. Rep. Lane Evans (D-Illinois) has urged Japan to take responsibility for Korean women it forced into prostitution during World War II and asked others in the U.S. Congress to support a resolution to send this message.

Speaking before the House Tuesday, Evans called Japan's mobilization of comfort women ``one of the most extensive cases of human trafficking in the 20th century.’’

``While the facts of these crimes are incontrovertible, the government of Japan has not officially accepted responsibility for this atrocity,’’ Evans said.
Way to go congressman! Now, if a few more would join in and start putting pressure on them...
