Aso chews more shoe leather?

Aso just can't get enough of himself. Of February 4th at a forum in Fukaoka, he claimed that "Taiwan's present high educational standards resulted from compulsory education implemented by Japan during its colonization of the island and that he believed Japan "did a good thing." (日本が植民地統治下に台湾の義務教育向上に貢献した.) This angered China because he referred to Taiwan as a country several times and also because it is an effort to rewrite that brutal occupation.
