    The link works for me.

    I just worry about the conservatives in Japan. What's to revisit? The Japanese used Korean sex slaves in WW2. Period.

    Fully agreed, Lou. The article mentions there is resistance to any sort of revision, perhaps it will grow?

    So, now they're not going to review the apology, but they are going to review (in secret) the evidence supporting the apology. Sounds like political double speak to me.

    It would seem that Mr. Abe is bowing to public pressure. I have no doubt of Japan's guilt, either in starting the war with the US or its use of Korean "comfort women". That their troops engaged in brutality, both toward their own, and especially toward their enemies is, in my opinion, established beyond doubt. They should never "revise" or "review" what occurred in the past. To do so is wrong-headed.

    Unless I missed something, it only mentions that they have said they would not "revise the apology". I don't see where it says they will not "review the testimony" that was the basis for the apology. However, the last paragraph does provide some hope:
