The Chinese do have ample reason to loathe and fear the Japanese, but, as you say, those reasons are being put in service of naked imperialism in the Formosa Straights.


Condemning the government's democide in the Great Leap Forward or the Cultural Revolution in the same terms as Japanese conduct is as stupid and self-destructive a thing as I can think of. Japan is an Israel for the Chinese, a safe object of hatred. Crushing Tibet doesn't even register. As far as they are concerned, it just belongs to China and the Tibetans had just better get with the program.
