Its obvious that some are trying to entangle the US into this mess.i.e a similar Japanese system was running postwar,most likely with some of the same girls,endorsed by US occupation authorities,Comfort women saga Part II etc.
The reader can reach his own conclusions on how legitimate these claims are,if even relevant.My personal view is that some lefty feminists regard all men as devious,exploiters of women,and will spin things when they can.I see no link between the system of postwar working girls in Japan with that of the comfort women amateurs.

They probably volunteered to be "comfort women" in order to escape a life of grinding poverty in Korea or Taiwan, and then, after the war, invented stories of having been forced into it in order to escape the contempt they were held in by their own communities (and perhaps also to screw a bit of money out of the Japanese Government).
