The Holidaymakers


Click comic to ENLARGE.

Yes, it's the silly season again, during which politicians around Asia rake Japan over the coals of history in an effort to bolster their nationalist credentials.

While Hong Kong "patriots" voyaged to the disputed Senkaku/Diaoyu Islands Wednesday, outgoing South Korean president Lee Myung-bak marked the 67th anniversary of the end of Japanese colonial rule by suggesting that if Japanese emperor Akihito were to come to his country (invitations have been extended by previous South Korean presidents), he would be very welcome to kowtow to the Korean people in apology.

My guess is the emperor and empress won't be holidaying in Korea any time soon.
