Once they have assumed room temperature and are buried, the attendence at RELIGIOUS ceremonies at the shrine most certainly ARE an internal matter.
Let me re-iterate again, CLASS A WAR CRIMINALS!
That is the very phrase your ChiCom buddies love to use all the time. What's good for the goose is good for the gander. BTW, both of my grandfathers fought for the notion of FREEDOM, something that you perhaps need to learn a little more about if you are going to support the sort of thugs that you do.
If you want to go on with your assumptions Lu make sure you know who it is you are assuming about. My family suffered under imperialist Japanese rule. Don't tell me about support. Who ever said I supported your chicoms?
In your mind, they are unrelated. However, what makes them related is the RANK HYPOCRICY of complaing about Japan yet wishing to deflect criticism against a regime that is responsible for FAR MORE CHINESE DEATHS AND SUFFERING than the Imperial Japanese Army was ever guilty of.
Again, you like to go off topic. Hypocricy is completely unrelated to this matter. Korea also suffered under imperialist Japan, as did the Philliipines, Vietnam. So what are you saying? Well China did such and such and such, so Japan is off the hook. Why do you keep going off topic on this subject matter?
Japan HAS apologized for its crimes. It is China that has not.
Japan has?Actions speak louder then words.
I wasn't aware that China had ever invaded Japan or for that matter killed innocent Japanese civilians in cold blood. Your arguments are obviously extending from a bias agaisnt China.
Fourteen war criminals are interred there as are more than a million Japanese war dead.
Doesn't matter, how many, the fact is they are there. If Germany "inshrined" Hitler you think it'd matter who else was there?
I didn't overrule the Osaka courts. There is a higher court that this case is currently being appealed to. Under Japanese law, the judgement of the lower court is stayed until the higher court renders its decision.
So I don't see any argument you've made. Untill the higher courts ruling such visits by the prime minister are unconstitutional.
Have you ever read a Japanese textbook? Can you even read Japanese?
Lol, you forget of my origins lu. Of course I read Japanese.
No, but the US is guilty for the Trail of Tears, Slavery, the Japanese-American internment, among other things. Unlike China and to a lesser extent Japan, the US does try to address its sins in the classroom.
Japan does not. Dude, this is not about the US nor China nor anyone else, this is about Japan. Get it through your head.
Trial of tears, US domestic affair, Japanese- American internment-- domestic affair, Slavery -- domestic affair.
China -- cultural revolution domestic affair.
Japan WWII war crimes -- INTERNATIONAL affair.
My sources are a number of friends who are Japanese teachers and who have graduated from Japanese high schools. One of my best friends here is a history teacher (he is my badminton doubles' partner) at the local Japanese school. Those people tell a VERY DIFFERENT story than you do. They are far more credible.
Yes lets elaborate on that for everyone here. You're residing in Japan now? Local japanese school? Want to elaborate on credibility?
My sources are news reports from coorespondants in Japan. I think that is much more credible about how teaching happens in Japan TODAY then your friends who are not teaching in Japan.
Actually, my reference was correct. It is the Wade-Giles form of 北平, which is still commonly used in Taiwan.
:rofl Whatever you like lu lol.
I never said that it did. You are putting words in my mouth. Typical ChiCom sympathizer tactic, isn't it.
Yes you did. Argument after argument you scapegoat Japan's responsibility and blame China for something that occured years later. Relationship? Weak.
Thus it's not what you have written, but what your implications seem to be. Now let's see your own words again.
However, what makes them related is the RANK HYPOCRICY of complaing about Japan yet wishing to deflect criticism against a regime that is responsible for FAR MORE CHINESE DEATHS AND SUFFERING than the Imperial Japanese Army was ever guilty of.
Are you so simplistic that you can see the link?
THere is no link lu. China killing thier own citizens has nothing at all to do with Japan invading China. Perhaps you would liken to link the US's civil war with the US-Spanish war?
Again, Japan has apologized. Japan is now a responsible member of the international community.
Trust me, I know the technical definition between the two. However, you seem to lack a sophistication of the political nature of Japanese aid.
One needn't political knowledge to understand common sense.
Wrong again, I'm speaking of entitlement, perhaps reading would help?
I guarantee you if Japan cut off Overseas Development Assistance to China, they would be frothing at the mouth AND YOU KNOW IT!
So what? I thought it's already been established the two are unrelated.
China is NOT entitled to receive reparations. After all, the PRC didn't even exist in 1945. Seriously, the Peace Treaty of San Francisco is the governing document ending World War II.
China as a nation is not entitled no, Chinese citizens are, as are Korean nationals and so on.
Gee, getting a little uncomfortable when the hypocrisy of the Chinese is exposed?
No, I'm merely pointing out the irrelevance of your arguments specific to this thread. You keep pointing out the hypocrisy of China's government, big deal, hardly to the least Justifies Japan at all.
I know, truth is something you don't deal in very well, is it?
No, I've never heard the term Chicoms until now, so no I have no idea what you are talking about.
