Japan’s new emperor echoes father, expresses deep remorse over war

Japan’s new emperor followed in his father’s footsteps, as he expressed ’deep remorse’ for his country’s role in World War II 74th anniversary of Japan announcing its surrender on Aug. 15, 1945. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe followed another recent tradition on Thursday sending an offering to the Yasukuni shrine that honors, among others, some of Japan’s most notorious war criminals.

Remorse and apologies are different things. They will never admit their war atrocities directly, only see their actions as 'regrettable'. Yeah and I regret getting that parking fine, doesn't make me sorry I did it either!
