Last week a bronze statue of a young girl memorializing the victims as comfort women was dedicated in Glendale, California. Historians say as many as 200,000 women from East Asia were trafficked as comfort women during WWII. Overwhelming evidence is available describing atrocities committed by Japanese during their colonial period and yet they continue to deny their involvement - this arouses anger in the international community. The next day, I found news about Korean women working in massage parlors arrested for their illegal activity in Manhattan and Queens. It was not just one time news but some massage parlors were affiliated with large scale prostitution rings. Let's straighten out the issues here.  In both cases of human trafficking, past or present time, I presumed that there must be an agency, so called broker, in dirty business. Then who do you think were agents in those two scenarios? Japanese? American? I am pretty sure it must be Korean. If my assumption was true, before asking apology from Japan, I think the Korean government should apologize first to the comfort women for its inability to protect its own people and compensate their humility. Second, before enhancing the spirit of humanity in international society, it should educate its own people. Third, please stop using comfort women for politics. They already suffered enough.
