I think it is noble of you to wish for peace between the two countries, but all the Chinese are asking for is some courtesy -- that is what it boils down to.RockLee said:But the way things are now is not the way it should be. And I don't claim the Japanese are saints either. But I wish China and Japan could be friends and not enemies, and there would be no hostility between both countries, that's why I think games like this are absolutely unnecesairry !
The recent revisionist movement started from within Japan -- being unable to handle the self-criticism from Japanese themselves. I think that overreacting is a serious problem. One piece of advice -- please never tell the victim to shut up. I find such forced peace not only insulting, but impractical because it never works that way.
Besides, these Chinese who protested are for the most part young and excitable, too (this is just my observation, so please don't quote me). Just show some courtesy, and people will be people -- accepting and forgiving. But doing whatever they will about Yasukuni, revisionist Textbooks, and childish War Games that all go to the effect of hurting the Chinese people's hearts is not the way to handle Imperial Japan's past. So let's stop advocating childishness -- what is there to defend than mindlessness ?
