Why is it that Japan is still asked to apologize for WWII, but Germany gets a free pass?

    This was a recent topic of discussion as the 70th anniversary of the atomic bombing of Japan recently passed. People wanted, or expected, the Japanese premier to give an 'apology' for WWI. I couldn't figure out why, aside from the obvious fact of the 'sneak attack' at Pearl Harbor. But, IMHO, I'd say that Japan paid an extremely heavy price for that attack with the two bombs that were dropped on them, not to mention the firebombing of all the other Japanese cities.

    Meanwhile, Germany which committed the worst atrocities during the 20th century, TWICE, gets a free pass?

    Why wasn't Germany literally wiped off the maps of the world after WWII?

    Japan did some pretty shitty atrocities too. many Chinese and Koreans would like nothing less than turning Tokyo into a self powered nightlight.

    Look at this clown defending Germany. :rolleyes:

    I say that we, as the world, shut Germany down. Wall it off, and make it a prison, like the movie 'Escape from New York'. Animals being animals.

    I wasn't alive back then, so I don't know. Tell us how it all went down. Do you still get flashbacks?

    This doesn't even make sense.

    Are you having a stroke right now?
