The Japanese Imperial Army, from 1932 until the end of World War II used approximately 200,000 women (some as young as 12) from North Korea, South Korea, China, Taiwan, the Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia as "Comfort Women". Why is saying sorry so difficult? Is it because people don't like admitting that they are wrong?
