A storm is raging in France over the government’s decision to build a branch of the Louvre in Abu Dhabi – the first-ever foreign annex of the world-famous art gallery… – From BBC News Europe (article)

Well, I think it’s true what their trying to say about what the art gallery is all about, because artists just want to be recognized for their works rather than the money they make, but I guess times are changing for the better. But I’d rather let them decide, not me.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe says Japan will not issue another apology for its World War II military brothels. – From BBC News Asia-Pacific (article)

Has this been done more than once? I don’t know, but anyway, on with the opinion. I wouldn’t be surprised about this, because words and stories about these sort of things are the only proof that the people has and of course, most of the time, people don’t believe. But it doesn’t mean that Japan should ignore this because ignorance isn’t always bliss. An apology means a lot to the majority, even if it doesn’t change the world by a global scale.

  1. Australians know all about apologies. Just ask John Howard. The Japanese haven’t apologised for about 60 years, but Australia’s been holding off for 200.

  2. 200? for what, exactly?
