It was Pax Mongolia, then Pax Europa, Then Pax Americana, are you ready for Pax ASEANA?

War is a very tragic. (THE BAD)

The elders created it
their children suffered through it
and the generations that followed were defined by it.

WHAT MAKES THE TRAGEDY MEANINGFUL are THE LESSONS LEARNED

SHALL WE GET TRAPPED IN THE PAST AND USE SPECIFIC ugly IMAGES TO FAN THE HATRED AND FORGET THE LESSONS?

   - shall we denounce the GREAT WALL just because many innocent lives were sacrificed building it?

     -  why do we celebrate Cao Cao as unifier of China who is his short reign cause so much sufferings
        among the Chinese. That we now have a unified weight, language, transport infrastructure and languages is due
        to Cao Cao.

     - There is no nation today that did not have their own blood bath that eventually settled who and what
        they are today. Even Genghis Khan had to kill his half brother and massacre entire tribes to achieve the unity
        of an empire considered to be still the largest land based empire in all human history. Same can be said prior to 
        Pax Europa, and similarly PAX Americana.

...... Two OF MY UNCLES Were TORTURED AND EVENTUALLY EXECUTED.  
       three of my aunts were raped and ed in a well.
       my family contributed about 25,000 dollars in 1945 (see below) to resist the Japanese Imperial Threat.
      

      EMPHASIS : RESIST THE JAPANESE IMPERIAL THREAT....NOT  FIGHT JAPANESE as a people.

UNITY AMONGST FELLOWMEN OVER COMMON GROUNDS IS THE STRUGGLE








================== 
China as ONE against Invaders



==============================

A DISTANT RELATIVE, BECAME OUR MODEL AND OUR STRUGGLE WENT OVERSEAS TO SINGAPORE, HONG KONG, PHILIPPINES, AND EVEN INDONESIA.

Lin Cheng-heng, son of martyr Lin Tsu-mi, commander of the Minnan armed forces, renounced the pen to join the War of Resistance Against Japan. This led to many Fujian Overseas Chinese in their resistance against Japan Imperialism.


Ma Ji Yuan: a Taiwan anti-Japanese family for 120 years _ a consensus network stick
1937...Tawanese Resistance during Full-Scale Invasion of Japan, in That year, Lin Zhengheng Admitted to Nanjing Military Academy, in 1939 after graduating to join the Anti-Japanese war.  In 1940, Lin Zhengheng participated in Journal Kunlunguan war exploits, was Promoted lieutenant.

===============================
WHILE KOREA AND TAIWAN, WHO ARE JAPANeSe COLONIES AT THAT TIME, WERE UNWILLING ALLIES. THEY TOO RESISTED. Koreans and Taiwanese have as much hatred for Japanese atrocities in the 1020s but in the 1970s and 1980s they modeled their industries to Japan and LG. Samsung, ACER, FOXCONN became household names. Shall we move on or shall we get stuck with fuming hatred as the world pass us by?
Korean Resistance

THE FIGHT CONTINUES AS OTHER POWERS SEEK TO ENSLAVE CHINA OR ASIA. 

Have you ever wonder that China needs a moral philosophy as did ancient China who uses Confucianism, Taoism, to unify the Nation spiritually and culturally? 
 THERE IS A LIMIT TO LEADER DENGS BLACK CAT/WHITE CAT PHILOSOPHY as Leader Xi is now limiting black cats who have became black rats/tigers.

WHAT ARE THE COMMON GROUNDS THAT WE STRUGGLE FOR?  QUALITY OF LIFE? , SECURITY OF FOOD, EDUCATION, CULTURAL EXPRESSIONS ?  HATRED OF JAPANESE PER SE WOULD NOT HELP US REACH THIS GOAL.

The Chinese soul is now in anguish. No amount of money can make it happy nor united. The concept if LOVE your COUNTRY need be enhanced. By fanning hatred of Japanese may not be enough to ensure one love China.

yes The Japanese Imperial Army ( not all Japanese) are evil They did it also for their own survival. Had it not been for Japans bold challenges to the Europeans in the great War, there would not be so many independent Asian nations as there are today.

HAVE YOU EVER WONDER IF THERE IS A UNITED JAPAN, KOREA, TAIWAN, AND CHINA FRONT?

IT IS ALREADY HAPPENING IN THE economic,  CULTURAL, MUSICAL ARENAS.

Have we learn our lessons?

  • 500,000 Chinese + Another 100,000 Chinese massacre in Indonesia - Lest We Forget 2014-8-25 20:10

    Michael, the truth shall be out whenever and so long as people remembers and more importantly lessons learned, ergo we progress as a specie. From the dawn of history men have brutalized each other but despite this we are still learning to live within  a Global Village. Teachers or as the Chinese say Lao Shu is important to instill in the young hoping that one day when they become leaders they can make the difference.
    There are many heroes that are not recognized in history but then what purpose o eahc of us have in this existence than to make a positive difference.
    Bring it on Michael....in the Chinese corner or inside your classroom or just living and demonstrating by example. Even if it can be as unpleasant as arguing with a  street vendor for services she/he did sloppily.

    Huaren, Obama is an embarrassment to the American people. No one could have imagined the ineptitude and poor leadership that he has shown the world.

    The massacre at Nanjing is largely ignored in the USA. I never heard about when studying world history and even when studying World War 2. President Harry Truman has also been overlooked in Chinese history for what he did to bring Japan to their knees. Most students here know of Nixon but not Truman. If Truman had not had the courage to drop the two A-bombs on Japan, they would have likely killed many more Chinese and caused much more devastation. The Japanese have proven through history to be brutal and uncivilized people. If they had not surrendered, Truman would have dropped up to 10 A-bombs on them. I agree with your sentiment and feel the pain of the Chinese people over this situation. It is sad. America didn't acknowledge it because of what was happening on the Korean Peninsula. China was supporting the north while the US was supporting the south. I think this is why these things were overlooked by the US and China. The US didn't acknowledge the massacre at Nanjing and Chinese didn't give the credit to Truman that he deserved. All of this simply because they didn't agree about Korea.
