Falsehoods of the Allied Nations’ Victorious Views of History,
as Seen by a British Journalist
Chapter Four: The Press Conference of Osaka City Mayor Toru Hashimoto
and the “Comfort Women” issue
By Henry S. Stokes, former Tokyo Bureau Chief of The New York Times
We now present Chapter Four.
This Chapter deals with the “Comfort Women” issue. Mr. Stokes first refers to this issue in relation to Osaka Mayor Hashimoto’s press interview, based on his stance as a journalist and nature of the Foreign Correspondent’s Club of Japan. Then he elaborates his thinking concerning the comfort women from a historical point of view. His conclusion is that “Japan adopted an orderly form of catering to the sexual needs of soldiers in overseas battlefield. So as not to infringe upon the human rights of women in the local area, the comfort station was prepared. The Japanese military paid much attention to prevent rapes by these establishments. In this sense it can be said that the Japanese military was by far more concerned about of the protection of human rights than other countries.”
