I don't know if this is taught in grade school in Europe or Japan, but I sure as hell know here in the USA it is largely ignored, downplayed, and
lied about consistently when it is brought up.
Cant say I remember if they thought this particular little war in china back when in school. But every country and everybody always changes the
histories to suit there interests, back in high school and ever since I can remember I took all they thought of history and especially the great
battles and wars of history with a grain of salt.
But now that I am older and a little wiser I take it all with a bag of salt, and really there is not enough time in the day or energy in the human
body to keep up with all that is being said or not being said concerning history or even current events. But really like I said it's pretty much
guaranteed that if it's of some interest to somebody or some group out there then things will get slanted in the history books in there favor.
Thats why common sense logic is the first thing to ask when anybody anywhere gives you a piece of history, it's really quite simple just pose the
questions of, if it was humans doing this would it actually go down like they say or is written down, from what you know off all sides involved.
But then again that all depends on what you know of history and human nature as well as nature in general, and the more you know stuff the deeper the
rabbit hole go's.
Eventually you got to ask yourself is there any actual factual history out there by anybody or any country? Or is it all just pieces of perspectives
and interests? The answer I came to is the latter, and it's all just like a jigsaw puzzle, you got to fit the pieces if you want to come out with a
bigger and clearer picture of it. And even then there is always the, you weren't there and its all second hand information factor playing on your
mind, when interpreting any history.
