1937? That was what, 75 years ago isn't it? Japan lost the war and paid the price. They have acted in a very civilized manner since. That's something you can't say about China during the time. They really need to put the history behind and worry about their own lives and their own issues.

Yes it's 1937-1945, 8 years painful history to China and other counties, even much longer to Korea. As someone said, Japan never apologized no mention compensated to the neighbor countries it invaded and destroyed. In comparison, Germany officially apologized, paid huge compensations to the victim countries, setup memorial monuments in its soil for the victims (including its own people) and passed the law to forbid Nazi principles and even words (yes that is the only "free speech" illegalized in Germany). What Japan has done? Nothing except empty "regret" words. Seriously the history of Japanese invasion to its neighbor countries has not officially resolved. It seems Japan never learn the lesson and may pay a big price later.

LONG HISTORY of conflict here, some within living memory. Note that Japan has never officially apologized for the 1937 Nanjing Massacre. The Chinese populace is more easily roused by anti-Japan sentiments than other (presumably Party-initiated) anti- sentiments, due to this bitter history. Yes the Japanese have changed. But I know American Jews, who had no close relatives die in the Holocaust, still refuse to consider buying German goods like VW.
