Japanese Politician Wants to Accelerate Investigation into Iraq War

December 24, 2010 - TOKYO- (PanOrient News) A group of lawmakers from all of Japan's political parties – with the notable exception of the conservative Liberal Democratic Party and its former government allies New Komeito – have established a committee to investigate Japan's involvement in the Iraq War and is asking the government of Prime Minister Naoto Kan to "accelerate the investigation progress."

Tsuyoshi Saito, the chairman of the committee and a member of the House of Representatives for the ruling Democratic Party of Japan, told PanOrient News that his group submitted numerous requests to the government earlier this month after it had held its first formal meeting.

PanOrient News interviewed Chairman Saito at his office in the House of Representatives building in Tokyo.

There's been a lot of violence over recent months and it continues; certainly for Iraqi Christians and, I believe, other Iraqi minorities. And Muqtada al-Sadr is reportedly turning Iraq into a very strict theocracy.
