Re: Historical note: China v. Japan
In reply to DonnyHiFi, Sep 21, 2012

The war's over. Japan lost and suffered gravely at the end of war. The treaty to end the war was signed by,among others, China. War crimials were tried and punished. What else you want 70 years later? Punish people who were not even born at that time again? Not to mention China did not act that noble during these 70 years herself.

And I say this as a Chinese-American myself.

Just the way I see it I'm not going to change how you think.

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.
