China, Japan, Korea: The Uses of Anti-Japan Sentiment

Two contributors at Japundit hold a frank conversation about why China and sometimes South Korea find anti-Japanese sentiment so useful: “It allows people to indulge their emotions…It has nothing to do with today’s reality. Imperial Japan no longer exists. It was annihilated, and everyone in Japan knows it.” It's a long “intraview.” But a thought-provoking one.

    A frank conversation indeed. A prime example of revisionist, right-wing thinking, done by two posters who would have you believe in all the rhetoric currently flooding the ruling LDP. They are no better than nazi apologists in my view.
