Hashimoto owes liberty to Allies

Regarding the June 17 article “Hashimoto says WWII Allies set up ‘comfort stations’ after soldiers committed D-Day rapes“: How dare that buffoon Osaka Mayor Toru Hashimoto insult the Allied soldiers who fought at D-Day!

Doesn’t he realize that the Allies fought and died to liberate both Germany and Japan? Doesn’t he know that without the blood spilled by the Allies, Japan would still be a military dictatorship much like North Korea is today?

One has to be really worried about a society and education system that can produce people like Hashimoto and enable them to become the mayor of a major city.
