This is really about Japan seeking a permanent seat on the UN Security Council. This is really about Japan changing its role to be Political and Military power, not just an Econimic power. This is not about Asia's past; it is about Asia's future. All that textbook stuff is just propaganda.

You guys are probably right, but that's not my point. I was mostly pointing out how ridiculous it was for a Japanese gov't official to be asking for damages for a few shop windows after destroying most of Asia.
