Because things are done differently in that part of the world and it’s not a hill to die on. If someone making a public apology fulfills the Japanese cultural requirement and enables a VERY important relationship to endure then what's the harm? It may seem like Kabuki theater but Kabuki theater is part of Japan.
Is kabuki the show with the banana or the one with the ping pong balls?

Nah, Brett nailed it. Just sick of the PC bullshit. I know we are there because we need to be. I know the Okinawans don’t like it. I know we have to play the game and be big boys when we are over there.

But I can still bitch about it...
