*If they had any class, they would offer support for the visit and acknowledge the suffering of the innocent Japanese who died in the atomic bombings. That's what they should have done. Instead they took it as an opportunity to stick the boots in and make it about them. That's terrible.
Abe could have shown some class by admitting neighboring countries also suffered enormously at the hands of the Japanese military/govt. It's terrible that Japanese are pictured as sole victims of the war.

"Victims deserve sympathy, but perpetrators can never shirk their responsibility," Wang said.

"In fact, Japan was the world’s first China Town. But since there were hardly any Chinese people in this country, they just called it Japan."
Hahaha! That is the funniest (and historically accurate) description of Japan I've read recently.

not true. Nanking and Peking are spellings according to the Wade-Giles romanization system.
Nanjing and Beijing are spellings for the Hanyu Pinyin system.
