The Japanese were - and still are - Just like a criminal who is regretful for having been caught, not for the criminal act.
They are a pitifully arrogant people that truly believe that they exist on a higher plane than most all others in the world. They believe that if they do something bad to you it’s YOUR fault because YOU did not stop it. That’s why they have showed only the most minimal of contrition for 60 years.
It’s all a holdover from that twisted, bushido honor crap that they can’t get out of their DNA.
They think that if they can get us to apologize for the bombs then that somehow washes them clean of their barbaric rampage throughout the entire war. They know Obozo is their BEST chance for an official apology.
Their self-righteousness and denial defies belief.
