Apologize for Getting Bombed!

“The North Korean survivors demanded that Tokyo apologize and pay compensation. Some in Tokyo worry that compensation would be diverted to the government in Pyongyang.

North Korean survivors claim that more than 40,000 Koreans were killed in the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Another 30,000 Koreans survived, and 2,000 returned to what became North Korea after the Korean peninsula was divided in 1948. Japan colonized Korea from 1910 to 1945.”

I understand paying for being a colonizing jerk, or forcing Koreans to come to Japan and then get killed. But as I read this, it seemed to say, “pay for being bombed since Koreans died because of it.” Strange. Did Japan want to be atomic bombed? How about someone Else paying for it? A group of Japanese doctors have made their way to the North Korea to treat some survivors – 65+ years later! (Washington Post – Bombed)
