Video: violent anti-Japanese protests across China

a couple more


“Defend the Diaoyu Islands to the death,” one banner said. Another said, “Even if China is covered with graves, we must kill all Japanese.”

Another photograph showed a handwritten sign taped to the entrance of Suning, a popular electronics store, telling customers it was no longer selling Japanese products.

Some protests appear to have turned violent. According to several postings, demonstrators on Sunday attacked sushi restaurants or other businesses perceived to have a Japanese connection. Several photographs said to be from Shenzhen, across the border from Hong Kong, showed what appeared to be damaged or overturned cars — most of them Japanese models — as well as several police vehicles.

The demonstrations appeared to be sanctioned and chaperoned by the police, who generally prohibit public protests unless they suit the needs of the Communist Party.

I'm sorry, but this is not a war crime contest. War crimes are horrible and disgusting, period. It can happen anywhere. Pain is equal and only has one definition.

I am not disregarding what you told me, but all war crime victims suffered more than their share in their lifetime, and It is very rude to the victims to compare what country did the most damage to another.

My point was not to compare. Adding an example has a purpose that is different from comparing.
I was saying that it's wrong to hold grudges and hatred for something that happened years ago.
Why can't they learn to forgive? We already forgave Iraq eventhough that war was only 22 years ago. Besides, the people have nothing to do with it. Why can't Chinese or Koreans understand that the current Japanese have nothing to do with WW2?
