Forgiveness?

In Hard to tell on April 30, 2011 at 11:57 pm

When should people forgive? Historical relations between Japan and Korea (a topic on which I am not an expert) are troubled. For example, it is alleged that during World War II (an event I mostly missed, being born in 1944) Japan invaded Korea and used Korean woman as sexual slaves for Japanese soldiers.

Recently, according to reports in the Los Angeles Times, there was an outpouring of support for Japan, because of the natural disaster there (earthquake, tsunami, nuclear plant problems). However, Japan indulged in some questionable comments and actions, and Koreans are reportedly backsliding on forgiveness.
