Blow Your Top Japanese politician calls wartime sex slaves 'necessary'

Japanese officials have distanced themselves from comments made by a prominent nationalist politician that suggested women forced to become prostitutes to entertain Japanese troops during World War II were "necessary."

Toru Hashimoto, who serves as the Mayor of Osaka, told reporters at his weekly press conference that "anyone would understand" the role of "comfort women" when soldiers were risking their lives and you wanted to give them "a rest."
