BEIJING, July 7 (Xinhuanet) -- Today marks the 78th anniversary of the July 7th Incident, also know as the Lugou Bridge Incident. It was the beginning of China's War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression in 1937.

Japan invaded northeast China in September 1931. But historians agree that Japan's full-scale invasion started on July 7th, 1937, at a crucial access point to Beijing, Lugou Bridge. That evening, Japanese troops were carrying out military training maneuvers in the vicinity of Lugou Bridge. They demanded entry to the nearby town of Wanping, claiming one of their soldiers was missing.

The invasion that followed started the war, which lasted 8 years. By the time Japan surrendered in 1945, around 35 million Chinese soldiers and civilians had been killed or wounded.

At least 300,000 people were slaughtered in the Nanjing Massacre alone.

Should we get some sushi to mark this anniversary and wash it down with some Asahi?

It still amazes me why the Chinese did nothing when the Japanese came to invade their country.

In the west we never hear about the millions killed in China during this period of time.
It's nothing but holocaust, holocaust, holocaust, like the Jews are something special
and the Chinese don't matter.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Why haven't you commented something along the lines of
"It still amazes me why the Jews did nothing when the Germans came to kill them all."

Oh, that's right. You're bigoted against the Chinese.
