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

China may be right, I don't really know the full Japanese record for apologizing about these terrible events. Of course, Asian apologizing usually involve a lot of money, whereas Europeans tend to grovel a lot. I believe Japan has thrown very much money to China. Nevertheless, it's rich for the Chinese Communist Party to talk of atrocities given their own track record. To me, that's the rub. Japan could do better at apologizing, I suppose, but as we say back home: China, what have you done for me recently?
