Koizumi and pals offer olive branch to China

Koizumi apologizes once again to former colonies at an Asia/Africa development and aid summit in Jakarta BBC report

Addressing delegates, Mr Koizumi said: “In the past Japan through its colonial rule and aggression caused tremendous damage and suffering for the people of many countries, particularly those of Asian nations.

Yomiuri also reports quotes him as saying

Despite becoming an economic superpower, Japan will not become a military superpower, and whatever problems arise will adhere to the position of peaceful resolution without calling upon violence.

Perhaps Mister Koizumi will be able to make peace with China with the help of his new friends.

Here is Prime Minister Koizumi with Japan’s twin mascots for human rights. The characters are ‘cleverly’ given names that both sound like real Japanese names and appropriate words. Mamoru Jinken (translates to ‘protecting human rights’) on the left and Ayumi Jinken (steps towards human rights)on the right.

  1. Why does the human rights master have to have an onion for a head? Is he supposed to make human rights abusers cry?

  2. Did you listen to thier 人権イメージソング? It’s awful. ”人権まもる まもるくん。 いじめることは いけない。 いけない。” 

  3. It’s such an amazing song that I want it to be my cell phone ringtone, so I can share it with the world.

    Actually Shoko, since you want to work with NGOs and stuff maybe you should use it on your phone instead.
