lacking perspective, fairness and compassion

What do you think are atrocities? Anyone that has the common sense will say it’s a crime. And it’s the common knowledge that crime is in no way forgivable and will be punished by ...
what's wrong with the foreigners is that they lack perspective on the issue. We see the Nazi crimes compared to the Japnese crimes, and maybe they were similar, but what's not simialr is what's happened afterwards. Just less than 3 months ago Israel (the country that was illegally created out of sympathy by of course western powers) was given a free nuclear capable submarine by the germans. there are no similarities between how the germans treated jews post WWII and how the japanese treat/treated the Chinese post WWII.
there's not any fairness toward the Chinese either. when there's a shrine visit, people tell the chinese to quit acting like babies, shut up, and tell 'em the past is the past, grow up! but in germany it's against the law to publicly state the holocaust never happened, and when an Iranian leader says this to the world every westerner is sure as shyte to be outraged and quick to call him a monster.
they can't seem to muster up any compassion for the chinese, but then again it was not them that had their country mutilated, raped, and murdered en masse or individually.
while the japense of today did not commit the crimes, it's incomprehensible how foreigners expect the chinese to just sweep this under the rug as if it never happened.
In the USA we're still rolling footage of the Japense bombing of Pearl Harbor and thumping how we conquered them, but the Chinese aren't allowed to remember their brutal past. Clint Eastwood just made a movie about the US invasion of Japan and it's on the top 10 slot for top movies and people think it's patriotic to watch such films, etc, , but if the Chinese make a film of the brutal Japanese we'd call it propaganda or brainwashing by the communists, yada yada.
There's just no fairness toward the Chinese, even on a Chinese forum.
