In truth, the intention of OP is merely to stir up anger or debate over the rhetoric of angry words spewed from the south china sea spat between
aggressive China and its long peaceful but concerned asian neighbours.
Japan's long dead WW2 atrocities are but only tools to stoke up anger and hate by the CCP govt of China to win nationalistic support in its greedy
conquest for the wealth of the South China Sea for itself alone selfishly - a long declared free international maritime avenue for world trade, and
whatever lays underneath, belongs to all who are willing to share it, just as like in all other international seas around our world.
The Nanking atrocity was most certainly horrific and nothing can whitewash it. And because of it, the CCP govt had time and time again used it as a
Thing is - had anyone sought to think deeper - why did it happened at all, blaming the effect rather than the cause?
To find the answer, one will have to go back in time to the last days of the Qing dynasty. They were decadent and easily beaten by western powers,
whom were only equal fellow humans. They had refused progress and evolution, kept the masses stupid and pliant, and the han chinese masses accepted it
- for hundreds of years, with no effective organisation to overthrow it.
The masses have only themselves to be blamed for evolved humans carving up the chinese empire. Freedom cannot be bestowed upon by others, but only by
their own blood and sacrificed. The chinese failed and thus ended up enslaved and bullied.
It was only Dr Sun Yat Shing, who had the courage and organisational ability to motivate the grassroots and sought for western help including modern
Japan to end the Qing dynasty.
Unfortunately, when the Qing tyrants fled, the chinese masses were split into 2 - Dictator Chiang and commie Mao. The masses were largely uneducated
and know not democracy and its responsibilities. Thus Chiang took the easy way out - corruption - by giving wealth and priviledges to his supporters
to lead the masses.
Commie Mao knew the masses were uneducated too. But he took a more bloodthirsty and pragmatic approach - demagogue emotional appeal on the disparity
between the rich and poor - to win power over the foolish masses, for he knew the rich will be small but the masses large and a no brainer result when
push becomes shove.
And as they both fight each other for supremacy, they left much of the masses unprotected in every way. Nothing was done to elevate the sufferings of
the poor - no education, no economy, no security.
Mititary Japan simply walked in and took over, with little fight by those 2 contenders whom even at such national perilous times, placed greater
priority killing each other than uniting to fight the japanese military, even right till the end of the war., an end that fortunately, the free world
did most of the job for them while they keep their own troops safe and intact to evict the other when the japanese military left at the end of the
As such, atrocities happened to the undefended chinese masses, which was a responsiblity of its national leaders. It was they who failed them, and
The japanese had done enough of paying back in words, actions, cash and blood. The war had ended long ago. Let Nanking and rest of the China provinces
rest peacefully, instead of being played up for greed filled agendas each time the CCP govt look towards coveteously the South China Sea.
