Guess political correctness runs amuck in Japan also.
Constantly claiming "victim status" is the fig leaf many Japanese
wear so they can appear in public without blushing.
Or admitting to The Rape of Nanking or the death of Allied
soldiers and innocent Asians under the forced labor imposed by
the followers of The Emperor.
On the PBS episode of "Secrets of The Dead" on the Bridge Over
The River Kwai, a Japanese officer/engineer that ran the railway building
had photos of his wonderful wartime accomplishments.
He said that no Allied soldiers were used in building part of
the system he supervised...BUT, the photos he brought along clearly
showed US or Commonwealth POWs in the background of the photos.

I never thought of it that way and you are absolutely right. When was the last time I heard anyone from Japan apologize or say anything about being at fault in WWII? I take that back, when was the first time. I never have.
