Skip to comments.Japan: China Is "Scary Country"
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.

Now, however, it's a dumb question.
Thanks, I just finished reading that over at the World Tribune.
I thought that "Scary County" was Massachusetts!
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."
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
" China is scary. "
Hey , at least it flushes . There are folks in the Japanese countryside who just have a hole in floor ! Most towns in the countryside still don't have sewer systems ! This in a country that is the second wealthiest in the world !
Yep. He nailed it right on.
I've seen the same sort of "toilets" in
Europe ( in Italy and Germany ).
Hey at least that one has a door your can shut. Was in a factory once, where they simply had a row of those suckers, with no partitions. And the cleaning ladies still came in unannouced! >:o
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.
RE: 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.
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.
This is an interesting confrontation. There is only one dog that can win, but they both will be barkin right down to the wire.
In Turkey, too.
I have not read that yet, but, you are saying we are catching up , for the irresponsible derelict of duty by the Clinton Administration ?
