I agree with Mr McCarthy that Japan must, and has a responsibility to, apologise for the unspeakable war atrocities committed during the attempted conquest of Asia. However, it is wrong to think that Japan should not mourn the hundreds of thousands killed in the two atomic bomb attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Although Mr McCarthy states that Japan should 'shed its concocted victim mentality', do the innocent sufferers of a country defeated in war not register as victims?
Perhaps victors of wars should shed their concocted 'innocent' mentality.
