(Hypothesis 2) "OOPArts comfort women" were comfort women for the U.S. (UN) military.
The "OOPArts comfort women" can also be explained in another way.
In the Japanese internet the opinion is often seen that "OOPArts comfort women" were actually comfort women for the U.S. (UN) military.
They just pretend to be comfort women for Japanese Army. But from time to time they inadvertently tell what they have seen and heard as it was.
Then it is no surprise that we hear such words as
"Jeeps", "English" and others from their mouths.
The name of this site is "Why does kumdo tell a lie?". Then I should think "Why do comfort women tell lies?".
"Comfort women for the U.S. military"
"Comfort women for the U.S. military" here mean prostitutes for the U.S. military who occupied (sourth) Korean Peninsula after 1945. Some of them were raped by US soldiers and became comfort
As the time passed by, comfort women for U.S. military were
institutionalized by President Park Chung-hee. Prostitution provided means for
Korea to earn their precious foreign currency. But serious human
rights issues are pointed out by the implementation of this
system. For example, comfort women had been confined in barred
rooms for the treatment of sexually transmitted disease. The
rooms was called "monkey houses" which was a discriminatory
name. And some comfort women tried to run away from so-called
base villages, and ask policemen for help. But they were taken
to base villages by polecemen against their will.
November, 2015 KBS(Korean media) documentary program
reported that "Monkey housis" existed in this building. )
A professor of Hiroshima University named Choe Kilsung
estimates the number of comfort women for the U.S. military in Korea at 30 hundreds of thousands from 25 hundreds of thousands till 1990("Sexual assaults and prostitution by UN force during Korean
War"(2001/03)). 122 Comfort women for the U.S. military brought a class action lawsuit for damages against Korean government in June,
2014. But it is difficult to say that this issue receives a great deal of public attention in Korea. Korean government does not seem to give her mind, too. For example, a minister of state could not answer the question which an oppsition lawmaker had asked a year before. Though this minister went to so far as to go to France to spread the issue of comfort women for Japanese
(The 1st reason) The "Hate-Japan" nation, Korea
Why do they tell lies?
In short, because Korea is "Hate-Japan" nation. Their hate toward Japan and Japanese is now their identity.
Korean people traditionally have sense of discrimination against Japan and Japanese.
((Petit Sinocentrism, 小中華思想)). Under this traditional environment. they have
been receiving "Hate Japan" education across several generations.
- "Hate Japan" education and Korean society
In "Hate Japan" education, fictional history is taught. Its biggest lie is that Korea had been an independent nation before it was merged
with Japan Empire (In fact, Korea had been a tributary nation to China(Qing).).
But few persons tries to verify lies.
Whoever argue with lies face the threat of persecution.
Some people are at risk of losing their jobs, some people are beaten even in public,
and others are orderd to pay substantial libel damages.
As a result, hatred toward Japan has been imprinted into their minds,
how delusive or how far from the truth their education is.
Now, it's not too much to say that all the stories
which defame or disvalue Japan pass as the truth in Korea.
On the similar grounds, many Korean people claim that Japanese culture as Kendo originated from Korea.
"facts" are also regarded as accomplished facts because Korean people
can despise or disdain Japan with them. And Korean people think no one
should be permitted a question. Unconditionally these "facts" are
accepted as truth as dogma of
By the way,
women's issue was supposed to be "irreversibly resolved" by Japan-Korea
Agreement in December, 2015. By this Agreement, at least a "comfort
woman" statue was supposed to be removed in front of Japanese Embassy in
Korea. This statue violates the Vienna Convention.
But at least 15 statues were newly erected in
Korea within 10 months after this agreement. Total number of statues are
more than 40 (in October, 2016) in Korea(Japan's news site,
http://www.zakzak.co.jp/ 2016.10.31). In addition, a new statue was
erected in front of Japanese Consulate General at
Busan. This also violates the Vienna Convention.
In Korea, there were some
demonstrations of more than 100,000 for urging the president to step
down since November, 2016. In one of these hateful demonstrations,
somehow a gigantic comfort woman statue appeared.
is gigantic comfort woman statue!
And somehow a performance to chop the Rising Sun flag was held. Without any doubt, the
expressed here are hatred and anathema.
Comfort woman statues are never "peace statues", despite officials` favorite statement.
These statues are hatred statues which libel Japanese unreasonably. The statues make many people hate Japanese
Indeed even Japanese students are persecuted. And all the three major candidates as next persident of Korea vowes to abandon Japan-Korea Agreement. Losing materials to hate Japan is a
matter of life and death for them. Because Korea is "hatred nation" which has been run based on hatred, Korea needs
woman statues. Korean people no longer able to keep up their mental stability without hatred toward Japan. It may be difficult even
to maintain the national system. Their hatred toward Japan is closer to a religion
than a set of value. Their "Hatred toward Japan" religion is the de

of honor as "martyrs"
For former comfort women for U.S. military, they had better identify themselves as comfort women for Japanese Army. Because it is easier to win more sympathy. And they are accepted as a sort of national idols as
if they are "martyrs".
Additionally they can win apologies and money with
comparative ease from Japan.
Essentially they can win both

3rd reason) Their culure of lie
This is closer to cultural background than one of
the reasons. In Korea, there is a culture that anyone tell
lies easily. If possible, I had better identify myself as a comfort women for
Japanese Army. The women who had little resistance to telling lies
