Mitsubishi efforts to offer compensation and apology extend to Asian POWs is certainly worth applauding. With this gesture, it has set the tones for Abe administration to review how best to ensure peaceful development is key fundamental to drive people and its economy. And for Mitsubishi to erect a memorial momument, the company has set a standard to show respect for the deceased POWs and you have done yourself a great favour that your kind deed will be rewarded with great kindness among people and your organization. Kudos to your brave act.....

The monument is good and it is a noble gesture. Truth is money cannot pay for the crimes they committed or the lives they took, they should pay respects to the Chinese who were killed in the war every year and participate in commemorative war events every year. The weapons and vehicles built were used to kill more Chinese. No amount of cash , can bring back a human life taken. The memorial should have portraits of people who were murdered by them during the war.

It is strange to see the US and Erupean countries are given priority in compensation and apology with the counterparts of China and other Asian countries looked disregarded although the Asians are much more in number of those suffered and killed by the war time Japan. Is that because they are obssessed by segregation or racism?

This emotion is the edge of Japanese's regrets and revelations toward the people it once forced to labored for their country. This is also one apology that the people of China will accept as a sign of sincerity towards a closure. Mitsubishi has done what they think is their liability toward the China and the Chinese.

It is good to see that a corporation can handle the matter far more better and appropriate than the Prime Minister of Japan and his administration that chose to deny, defy the truth that his country once did to the people of South East Asia. History can never be alter or change to one that he simply think he and his country can hide behind.

It is also sad to see that a corporation can take up that responsibility far more better than a country and the administration could when it comes to accepting the fate of those unfortunate laborers...and that government could not.

Shame on you. These are noble Japanese gentlemen the take responsibility, you are not. You should know who you are.
