Japan finance minister apologizes for Nazi constitution comment

Critics of the ruling Liberal Democrats are uneasy over the party’s proposals for revising the U.S.-inspired postwar constitution, in part to allow a higher profile for Japan’s military. Japan and Nazi Germany were allies in World War II, when Japan occupied much of Asia and Germany much of Europe, where the racial supremacist Nazis oversaw the killings of an estimated 6 million Jews before the war ended in 1945 with their defeat. Japan’s military aggression, which included colonizing the Korean Peninsula before the war, is the reason its current constitution limits the role of the military. According to a transcript of the speech published by the newspaper Asahi Shimbun, Aso decried the lack of support for revising Japan’s pacifist constitution among older Japanese, saying the Liberal Democrats held quiet, extensive discussions about its proposals. “I don’t want to see this done in the midst of an uproar,” Aso said, according to the transcript.
