China-Japan Starting to Make Nice?
We better hope so.
While we tromp around in the Middle East, let's remember we'd have to defend both Taiwan and Japan if China decides to get real aggressive. Japan has basically been pulling a Germany lately trying to cover up its past. I'm not so much against that as I am Japan trying to, at the same time, push all the "good" things they did in China and the Korean Peninsula. Japan can't have it both ways, talking down the bad and talking up the good. In actuality, there's little good to talk up, more like Japan is starting to make stuff up. Claiming things like the king of Korea asked Japan to conquer it doesn't sit well with their neighbor to the west, South Korea. Japan should leave history to the historians, not the government.
