The PRC will go to any length to make themselves every thing and all things even at the expense of erasing the heroic sacrifice of their own Chinese people just because they happened to be Koumintang, which happened to be the government.

Regardless of which political affiliation they were, they were Chinese fighting a foreign power.

Can't wait till the PRC falls someday.

Yes but true history paints a very dark light on the CCP, because had the CCP not attacked the KMT Chinese national army on other war fronts, the KMT would have been able to devote more resources to fight the invaders (Japanese et al.).

You could even say what the CCP did was treasonous to the Chinese people.

Underlying all this censorship, historical revisionism, etc. is a very dark truth about the CCP's agenda, back then and now. They, the CCP, divides and weaken in order to rule, they divided China back then when only half of China's army was able to fight foreign invaders, they divided families (encouraged kids to dob in parents, neighbour on neighbour), they are dividing Hong Kong now, and Taiwan, they divided Tibet (there can't be two Dalai Lamas), and now they want to divide the world.

At first, I wondered why they would censor patriotic/nationalistic war movie, but then I read the KMT thing- insecurity (even though the CCP and the KMT are getting friendlier nowadays when it comes to the DPP).

the KMT would have been able to devote more resources to fight the invaders (Japanese et al.).

It's not that simple. The KMT (Really, just Chiang Kaishek and his closest advisers) viewed the communists more dangerous than Imperial Japan. Japan were already stationed in China before they even started the war against them (through the false flag of destroying their own railway), and even after that, the KMT still focused on the communists.

It also didn't help the fact that, aside from Japan, there were other foreign-owned (Western) colonies within China during the KMT rule, which was a continuation since the Qing Dynasty, and it was always used as propaganda against them- like why or how could the "Nationalist Party" allow that to happen?

The CCP rules the people of China with an iron grip. The ruling party cares for itself more than China or its people. This has been proven over a long period of time, over and over again. The CCP does not trust its own people but asks the world to trust the CCP. The party wants China to be a world leader under the boot of the CCP. In other words the CCP wants to rule the world and have it subservient to it its will.

The world must resist the CCP party but help the Chinese people. The world should be very worried.

Censorship of its own culture and past, and of its people is only one aspect of this repressive "leadership".

I don't think there's disagreement between your post and mine. China had many foes and factions, from inside and out.

other foreign-owned (Western) colonies within China during the KMT rule, how could the "Nationalist Party" allow that to happen?

It was all negotiated, there was alot of ceding of concession etc., China was the sickman of Asia, and everyone took advantage of it. But, ultimately, China only fell because of the CCP's distraction.

Think how prosperous, and advance China would be today if the CCP hadn't existed.

The KMT's role in defeating the Japanese has always been supressed by the CCP, because the KMT became the government of the "renegade" province Taiwan under Chiang Kai-shek and his successors.

The CCP doesn't want their people to know that the Communists hid in the mountains, leaving the Kuomintang to fight Imperial Japan alone.

CCP is borish

Options to China abound - there is a world outside the Middle Kingdom

A pity the government there regularly forgets that

Premiere in Taipei anyone?
