Am I a dreamer on this issue? Can China one day forgive?

Can China hold together without a common external threat to hold her people's focus?

Thank you for your kind wishes. I also want peace and prosperity for our countries, including Japan. And if the following conversation ever happened, the tension between China and Japan wouldn't be so intense.

Japan: I am so sorry for this many Chinese people died because of the Japanese invasion army and WWII. Three hundred thousand people died in the Nanjing Massacre, forty hundred thousand women were forced to be Comfort Women, and more women were raped, more men and children were slaughtered. These low-interest loans were the least I can do to help to ease the pain a little.

China: The memories of the painful past are still painful today, yet not that constructive for a better future for my people. Your long-term loans have been very helpful to me and I sent you many thanks through newspapers. The past is history already. I gave up the WWII indemnity, didn't I? You said sorry like the Germans did, and I forgive you like other western countries did to the Germans, because hatred breeds nothing but more hatred. Hand in hand, we can face a brighter future.

But no, that conversation was just in dreams. Instead, in reality, the following conversation happened.

Japan: What is that obsession of yours with those death toll numbers? My people live on an island full of volcanoes and frequently visited by earthquakes. My people had to expand their living space onto the continent. So they just had to enter China. What was wrong about that? Your people made poor use of the lands and resources there. And your people resisted my soldiers like mad people instead of welcoming a helping hand bringing in modern civilization and industrialization, therefore my soldiers naturally got angry. The Nanjing Incident was inevitable. And I loaned you so much money already. We should have gotten even by now.

China: Enter? Inevitable incident? How dare you ! And those were loans, not free money, and I paid them back, plus interests ! Forgetting the past is betrayal !

Like I said,

The Japanese people were good-natured, peace-loving and innocent. Most Chinese people believed it. The Japanese was forgiven. Chinese government officially gave up the right to claim Japan's indemnity for WWII because it could do no good but to increase Japanese people's burden. There was little resentment, full of Sino-Japanese goodwill.

But after China opened up and Chinese people communiated more with the oridinary Japanese people, they found that the Japanese worship WAR CRIMINALS and the INVASION ARMY POPULARLY and PUBLICLY. They question or even DENY the Nanjing Massacre POPULARLY and PUBLICY. And this trend is not temporary but keeping being intensified.

The Chinese people felt they were fooled. So they were angry at this type of [beep] government propaganda, and angriER at the Japanese people as a whole.

So, this resentment is not an external threat used to hold the Chinese people's focus. And it is somewhat against the Chinese government's will, because more time granted to China and her development in peace means a better strategic place, isn't it?

Now I guess you could find out who is benefiting from muddying the waters, could you?

The epicenter was 260 km from my city. I am OK. During the quake I ran down my apartment building with only my pants on. But lucky for me, nobody I know was injured.

Pollution in China has been mentioned a few times so I figured I'd share this story I saw today. Happy Reading.

I'm glad to hear that you are unharmed. I live in California where we also deal with earthquakes. The danger is ever present. Stay safe.

I am just really preoccupied with the chafing associated with going commando, but yes. I agree with the above statement.

It was a theocracy with the worst caste-system in the world and most castes served as slaves to the Llama class.
Ofcourse the Dalai Lama wants it back, he wants his slaves back.
As for the chinese influence. As I understand it, it's now secularized and all citizens are now equal and have access to education. Win/win for everyone imho.

Before we start, here are some announcements and rules.

[1] Authenticity guaranteed. I am a formal member of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) which means that I am a genuine communist.

[2] Purpose clarification.I live in mainland China and am a newcomer here. Therefore I'd like to meet folks around and let guys know something about me, my hometown and my homeland.

[3] Information ONLY, NO sarcasm, NO quarrels. I am here to provide information from a junior communist and a Chinese citizen perspective if you are INTERESTED and ask a question. I am here NOT to offend anyone, nor to take offence at any prejudiced commentary.

[4] Keep calm and easy. The same reason why you post a thread on the forum, I also want to be liked by you guys. Meanwhile you might satisfy your thirst for interesting news from this thread. So let's do it the harmonious way, OK?

I do, however, wonder about your motivations to start this topic.
There's probably lots of chinese on this page.
