China is pointing fingers at atrocities committed on Chinese people. The Nanjing Massacre, whoever's numbers you believe, pales in comparison to the death toll Communist China has inflicted and continues to inflict with on its own population. Pot, meet kettle.

When addressing the comfort women issue, South Korea needs to look inward to its continuing policy of comfort women in the towns surrounding modern bases for both South Korean and American military forces. Women who are descendants of prostitutes, stigmatized by regualr society, are still relegated to brothels and "tea houses" in these base satellite communities, and are required to maintain health standards enforced by the South Korean government and the US military.
Abe should acknowledge the past and make laws to ensure that history is never repeated. China's hypocrisy in regards to colonialism should also be addressed. China's history of aggression to neighbours goes back thousands of years. It is time for all nations to look to the future instead of dragging up muck from the past, just to score political points.
