Japan's Education Minister needs to be reeducated

It appears that Japan's Minister of Education, Nakayama Nariaki, has shown his true right-wing colors again by reading from an email he had received which suggested that "comfort women" had a job that, "one should be able to take pride in if it eased the unsettled minds of men at war and provided them with rest and order."

Why do people, of any nation, put up with this kind of hateful nonsence. Please, people of Japan, Korea and China, peacefully protest this kind of rhetoric. This isn't just some guy off the street. He has arguably the most powerful cabinet post in government.
