Within the context of previous blog entries as seen here and here consider this "terrible mistake" also. And indeed it is a "terrible mistake".
HOW NOT TO MAKE FRIENDS AND INFLUENCE PEOPLE! ALSO HAVING THE POSSIBILITY OF UNFORESEEN GEO-POLITICAL RAMIFICATIONS? NOTHING GOOD CAN COME OF THIS REGARDLESS OF MOTIVATION!

"Japan’s Terrible Mistake on 'Comfort Women'"
"Japan has overreacted to the latest 'comfort women' memorial statue in South Korea."
THE JAPANESE MAY HAVE OVERREACTED BUT THOSE KOREAN NATIONALISTS ALSO HAVE OFFENDED WHERE NO OFFENSE WAS WARRANTED!!
"In late December, Korean activists stationed a bronze statue of a young woman across from the Japanese consulate in Busan. Seated upright in a chair with her hands clasped in her lap, she stares intently, solemnly toward the consulate."
THIS WAS A DELIBERATE PROVOCATION AND UNSEEMLY. THIS ISSUE FROM SEVENTY YEARS AGO HAS BEEN REMEDIED TO THE EXTENT IT CAN BE REMEDIED!
"The statue offended Japan’s government so much that last week Japan recalled the Japanese ambassador in Seoul and the consul general in Busan and put major economic cooperation discussions on hold."
"Emotion clouds reason" - - Michael Corleone. Surely that is the case and surely that is the case here. Everyone cease and desist as best can be done. Kim of Pyongyang presents a much more grave threat I think all would acknowledge.
