Japan's abhorrent practice of enslaving women to provide sex for its troops in World War II has a little-known sequel: After its surrender -- with tacit approval by U.S. occupation authorities -- Japan set up a similar "comfort women" system for American GIs.
It's sort of like a case of "I did it, but you did it too!!", but well... still an interesting read nonetheless.
Though they were free to do so, no Japanese women sought compensation.
"Not one Japanese woman has come forward to seek compensation or an apology," he said. "Unless they feel they can say they were completely forced against their will, they feel they cannot come forward."
well.... they did state that they were highly paid in the article... compare that to the plight of the original comfort women... (not that i know of course...)
