Posted in: China's Xi calls for stronger frontier defenses See in context

Other officials, such as Foreign Minister Wang Yi, also stress that China will fiercely defend territory it >considers its own, but insist the country poses no threat to others.

Interesting to say the least, considering they consider others territories also their own.

China’s Communist Party leaders have for decades stressed that under their leadership that began in 1949 the >country finally overcame more than a century of humiliation by outside powers dating back to the Opium Wars >of the 19th century.

So are they going to go after all those who invaded them or only the ones that have had a pacifist constitution for the last 60-70 years (typical bully behavior)

And he didn't get sick?

China, she said, hoped Japan would “understand and respect the legitimate concerns” of neighboring >countries.

But that's exactly what Japan is doing right? Many neighboring countries are concerned with the bullying behavior or Communist China and welcome Japan and the US's help in balancing it...

Oh, way to turn an obvious comparison between two Axis powers into a plot by the Chinese to brainwash people. LOL! >Germany knows how to handle a serious historical situation.

That's what the Germans (and the rest of the world) think:

From all these developments, it seems to me that German leaders also suspect that Chinese leaders are trying to exploit >the issue of Japan’s history for strategic gain, and want absolutely no part in helping Beijing to succeed in this endeavor.

Posted in: Singapore PM asks Japan to turn page on history See in context

yabits I second that. When you apologize, and then the very people who told you how to apologize tell you you haven't >apologized enough, what would your reaction be?

Do what Germany and four other European countries had to do: Make war-crimes denial a crime in itself.

The very fact that not all European countries make it a crime is due to us in Europe having to balance it with Freedom of Speech. Indeed Communist China is doing a good job brainwashing people into contrasting Germany and Japan. Having grown up in France I don't remember a month going by without another "pre-eminent" historian claiming the holocaust never happened.

OssanAmerica Lee is preaching to the wrong choir. Japan has apologized to everyone and signed peace treaties and had no problems >with WWII issues. IT is only after China and South Korea in complete denial of their 1972 and 1965 treaties with Japan >started the anti-Japan movement based on WWII history, as if these treaties didn't exist.

I second that. When you apologize, and then the very people who told you how to apologize tell you you haven't apologized enough, what would your reaction be?

On the other hand, if I were the CCP, it would be in my interest to keep the South Koreans focused on "comfort women" so when I come to Seoul to visit, we don't have to talk about more interesting topics, like North Korea. And it's somewhat the same situation with the rest of South East Asia: look their way, what they did 70 years ago, that will save you from looking at what I'm currently doing in your backyard.

Posted in: S Korea, China protest Japan's 'comfort women' apology review See in context

OssanAmerica This makes South Korea's claim that the 1993 statement wasn't an apology look pretty silly

South Korea's constant harping that Japan haven't apologized "enough" already shows motives beyond the establishment of historical facts

China’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying also urged Japan to take steps to handle the problems >of its historical legacy.

No one in their right mind would believe Communist China when it comes to historical legacy

Timing is as many commented, more than suspicious. Why not bring this up when they needed ODA money from Japan? Well...Why do it now? Maybe to keep the masses' attention away from things like these http://edition.cnn.com/2014/06/04/world/asia/china-maoist-scars/index.html

And by the way, for growing up in a country neighboring Germany, I could hardly miss the noise made by the German right-wingers.

Every country has its own lot of those. It's just pathetic that the Communist Chinese would try to brainwash the rest of the world like they do their populace and put Japan in contrast with Germany.

UNESCO recognizes that teaching about the history of the Holocaust is fundamental to establishing respect for human rights, >basic freedoms and the values of tolerance and mutual respect.

Now if you tell me the CCP is trying to have the Nanking massacre recognized for the same reasons, I would indeed shout "Tiananmen", "Great Leap Forward" and "Tibet".

Posted in: China uses D-Day anniversary to praise Germany, slam Japan See in context

As a reader (and independent thinker) I always start by questioning the veracity of the Communists in China. From what I can see, the Germans themselves are not too happy with the CCP's propaganda, whether it puts them in a good light or not: http://thediplomat.com/2014/03/germany-rebukes-chinas-anti-japan-pr-campaign/

For those who won't click:

Ambassador Clauss also emphasized that reconciliation in Europe was facilitated by the establishment of rule of law >across the region, which allowed countries to settle disputes through mechanisms like the European Court of Justice. >China strongly opposes the use of international arbitration to settle its myriad ongoing territorial disputes with its >neighbors, and instead insists that all disputes be handled bilaterally, where China’s clout is greater.

bannedacctsamMAY. 13, 2014 - 06:00PM JST Regarding the picture for the article -

The woman in the white dress is holding up a sign that reads "STOP RED CHINA BULLYING IN VIET NAM SEAS."

Not really if you consider that HCM City -> Saigon was the last bastion to fall before Vietnam became "communist" and that the Vietnamese CP is less capable than the Chinese CP at curbing freedom of speech

“Yasukuni shrine is the place where to worship the Japanese WWII soldiers. And do u have any efing idea that is how the >Japanese Nazi killed American and other Asian countries innocents?”

And this shows how Communist brainwashing and propaganda is working on their diaspora abroad. That person needs to go reflect on the history of colonialism and how civilian casualties were considered 'collateral damage' on both sides (allies and axis)

Bgood41FEB. 07, 2014 - 11:43AM JST Virginia politicians show themselves that it can be under the influenced of various local means. Americans came from >various ethnic and cultural backgrounds, but Constitutional and American value always come first.

Indeed. While the Korean government is showing a complete lack of sense of purpose if not class exporting their little regional squabbles, one can question whether the Korean community is Virgina is just that, Koreans who feel so strongly about being Koreans instead of becoming Americans but would just like to live on American soil. Contradiction? Or does it shed light on a lot of other seemingly unrelated things?

How far will the Koreans go to export their pettiness?

As a French-American, I am really sorry to see a cultural festival like Angouleme's used for Seoul's political agenda when it's supposed to celebrate one aspect of Japanese popular culture that the French really appreciate?

Do you seriously think they haven't been already? And who has been blocking all western attempts at sanctions against Iran at the U.N to stop their nuclear program? The PRC seems to forget the western world has something called "freedom of press"

OssanAmericaJAN. 26, 2014 - 07:20AM JST Well this will get the PLA brass in Beijing steamed. India to the South, as well as Russia to the North, doesn't HATE Japan as China would like.

That is why we call whatever comes out of the PRC mouthpieces Propaganda. It doesn't even come close to the facts and they have to repeat it over and over again. How easily do they think they can brainwash the whole world?

Posted in: China's UK envoy compares Japanese militarism to Voldemort See in context

Since the CCP is so bent on getting apologies, why doesn't their UK envoy try to get some from where he is? Or maybe he only had Harry Potter in the selection of movies in the plane to London and nothing about the Opium Wars? Or maybe is it easier to harass a country with a pacifist constitution than one with a bigger nuclear arsenal than yours?
