Abe and Comfort Women - a political cartoon perspective

This political cartoon expresses a common sentiment held by South Koreans about Prime Minister Abe's priorities regarding the Japanese kidnapped by North Korea and the "Comfort Women." As Abe has gained much of his political popularity and now power, especially with the right, by a strong stance on the kidnapping issue, he has further sought the approval of the same conservative and nationalist contingent by stepping on the comfort women.

This cartoon presents the essence of the issues pretty well. I am not comfortable with Japanese politicians because of the contradictory way of thinking.
