"Sex Slave" Resolution passed by a Committee

According to AP, A congressional panel on Tuesday endorsed overwhelmingly a resolution urging Japan to apologize formally for coercing thousands of women to work as sex slaves for its World War II military. The 39-2 approval by the Foreign Affairs Committee allows the measure to be considered by the full House. A large crowd of supporters applauded and cheered after the lawmakers' vote.

Many Japanese politicians, historians, and commentators are infuriated at the resolution that includes many factual errors. For example, the description "gang rape, forced abortions, humiliation, and sexual violence resulting in mutilation, death, or eventual suicide in one of the largest cases of human trafficking in the 20th century" is grounded in no historical facts. While they don't tell the number of the "human trafficking", how can they declare it is the largest one in the 20th century?

It's a shame for the U.S. Congress to say such a nonsense. And it's sad that Japan is so much misunderstood more than 60 years after WW2.
