Regarding the Jan. 25/26 article “Kyuma: U.S. invasion of Iraq a mistake“: Isn’t it strange that whereas U.S. President George W. Bush already admits that mistakes were made in deciding to start the Iraq war in March 2003, the leaders in Japan won’t say anything about having dispatched some of our Self-Defense Forces to the “wrong war” in support of Bush? During this period of Japan’s “contribution” to the war, some Japanese people either lost their lives or were nearly killed.
