Japan: China Is "Scary Country"
CNN ^ | April 12, 2005 | Tara Duffy

Posted on 04/12/2005 4:23:08 PM PDT by srm913

NEW DELHI, India -- China's premier has told Japan to "face up to history," while a top Japanese official has called China "scary" as a war of words simmers following massive protests in the weekend.

The missives on Tuesday came after tens of thousands of Chinese took to the streets on Saturday and Sunday, angry at a new Japanese history book they say fails to admit the extent of Japan's World War II atrocities.

The protests -- which were the largest since 1999 when crowds rallied outside the U.S. Embassy in Beijing when three Chinese were killed in Belgrade -- also targeted Japan's bid to become a permanent U.N. Security Council member.

In the latest flare-up between the two former rivals, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao told reporters in New Delhi on Tuesday that Japan must "face up to history squarely" and that the protests should give Tokyo reason to rethink its bid for a permanent council seat.

Of course, Japan was the scarier of the two in the WWII era.

Now, however, it's a dumb question.

That is rich, aren't the Chinese the ones that howl whenever anyone so much as thinks about telling them what they should do with their internal affairs? They seem to be very free with their demands to have a say in the curriculum of Japanese schools.

This from a friend in Taiwan:
"The sentiment towards Japan is far more different in the mainland. The CCP are fermentating the hatred toward Japan, and there are lots of "angry young people" want to launch a genocide in Japan. If you have an idea that how Nazis fermentated hatred toward Jews, you'll be afraid of what you see in modern China. Some of they also want to kill all Taiwanese, too. These people are much more resemblent to Nazis than commies."

".......These people are much more resemblent to Nazis than commies."

If there was once a difference between Communists and the National Socialists, it was that the Communists believed in total government control of the economy while the Nazis realized that some degree of free market competition (that the Government could take away if the need arose) resulted in a much more vigorous economy.

The Chinese long ago completed the Final Solution against it's own internal enemies and have now adopted the more productive National Socialist economic view.

There is little difference between what Communist China is now and what Nazi Germany would have been if it had survived into the 21st Century

My friend was a 2nd Lt in the ROC Army. Pretty preceptive guy. He has some valuable insights we don't ever get to hear in the West. Things sound like they are getting pretty unstable over there. A few years from real trouble.

Indeed, those who are fomenting ethno-racial hatred of the Japanese also have started to say things such as "the Taiduists participated in the Rape of Nanjing!" Tell a lie often enough ... we are witnessing monsterous history developing before our very eyes,

Thank God Dubya is at the helm right now.
And for those that disparage the Pentagon/CNO for gutting the Navy, I refer you to: http://www.fas.org/man/crs/RL32109.pdf
It's a length PDF but worth the read. They are fast tracking as many systems that will do the most good if the spam hits the fan over there. Particularly the LCS.

The weight is on the shoulders of the Navy these days. No doubt.

Well, if/when the ChiComs attack Taiwan, the USAF will play a big role in the first 24 hrs. PACAF has about 300 fighters within 10 hrs of the strait (some as close as 30 minutes, average 4 hrs) as well as bombers 3 hrs away in Guam. Initially the Navy will only have the Kitty Hawk air group Carrier Air Wing 5 which is shore based in Atsugi Japan, near Tokyo, and the Marines have 1st Marine Air Wing out of Iwakuni and Okinowa. All told we have 400+ fighters with combat proven aircraft, systems and pilots.
The gray Navy, other than subs, if in port won't make it for 12-36 hrs, but they will arrive in style with 6-10 Aegis class warships, which are tremendous AAW ships.
