Yasuhiro Nakasone was a Japanese politician who served as Prime Minister of Japan and President of the Liberal Democratic Party from 1982 to 1987.

Comfort women

During World War II, Nakasone was a commissioned officer and paymaster in the Imperial Japanese Navy.[1] He was stationed at Balikpapan in East Kalimantan, Indonesia, to build an airfield when he was a lieutenant.[2][3] He realized that the construction of the airfield had been stalled due to the prevalence of sexual crimes, gambling, and other problems among his men, so he gathered comfort women and organized a brothel called comfort station as a solution.[2] He managed to procure four Indonesian women, and a Navy report praised him for "mitigated the mood of the his troops".[2] His decision to provide comfort women to his troops was replicated by thousands of Imperial Japanese Army and Navy officers across the Indo-Pacific both before and during World War II, as a matter of policy. From Nauru to Vietnam, from Burma to Timor, women were treated as the first reward of conquest."[2]

He later wrote of his return to Tokyo in August 1945 after Japan's surrender: "I stood vacantly amid the ruins of Tokyo, after discarding my officer's short sword and removing the epaulettes of my uniform. As I looked around me, I swore to resurrect my homeland from the ashes of defeat".[4]

Harvard International Seminar

He attended the Harvard International Seminar in 1953, a deep state recruitment program led by Henry Kissinger.

Craig Spence

Craig Spence, who ran a U.S. sexual blackmail operation, often bragged of "his close association with former Japanese Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone".[5]
