History is for us to learn and respect the past, wherewith there are much truth that never made to the public.
Recent commotion about Korea’s desire to build a memorial of An Jung-geun, is certainly raising a debate :
- isn’t memorial of a hero of a country’s warrior is enacted in his/er own country
- should not the offended country also reflect on her past and make comment with truth and sympathy tone rather than rebuke the intention – after all even if the behaviour is childish, it is the actor who will bear the shame in the eyes of others. (Such that made by Malaysian court on the use of Arabic word – Allah – - such clear lack of historical fact – making themselves the laughing stock on world stage)
I imagine it is fuelling the continuance lack of acceptance of Japan in Asia region. No one likes to face the fact of past wrongs but, a wrong is a wrong. Give its due respect and acknowledgement and surely the wronged will be have a big heart to oversee and move on. Just as most in Europe has for Germany and her past. I am sure many want to move on also, here in Asia. This is one thing, money can’t buy.
Hence, forget about ‘exporting’ the nuclear power plants waste. It is for you to find a solution in your own soil ! Please do not lie to your citizen that there ia plan to phase out nuclear plants when you are actively trying to sell to another country, having another build this soil and human killing plants.
