Japan's conservative prime minister on August 15 broke with two decades of tradition by omitting any expression of remorse over the country's past aggression in Asia on the anniversary of its World War II surrender. Shinzo Abe's speech, which came after nearly 100 lawmakers including two cabinet ministers visited a controversial war shrine -- avoided typical words such as 'profound remorse' and 'sincere mourning' used by his predecessors to atone for those who suffered as the Imperial Japanese Army stormed across East Asia.
