Report to signal thaw in China, Japan ties
By Zhang Jin (China Daily)

China and Japan are expected to release in Tokyo today a joint report that acknowledges Japan's ...
Post dated 12/24, so this is quit recent therefore please allow me to weight in on this one so here goes:
I'm sure that, as it is with many other sites, that [ the built-in hatred that's been embedded deep in within many of us for what's in all true reality a modern day Japan that's totally distinct from that of their predecessor of the 1930's ], too, is equally as overwhelming here if not more serious.
However, is all of this rejoicing and all of this jumping for joy and happiness over this "misguided notion that Japan have finally conceded, kowtowed, or caved in to our "SILLY, CHILDISH, and ASSERTIVE DEMANDS" really something worth cheering for"???
"When we forces someone into the making of a reluctant and not from the heart's statement, what we had failed to understand is that "forced admissions is never authentic and that it is never from the heart". So, is that the extent of our (Chinese) intelligence -- forced concessions???"
Similarly to that of a forced relationship, i.e., that of a reluctant prearranged marriage, "coerced, inauthentic, dishonest, and not from the heart's concession is never something to celebrate".
However, if a relationship is built on true honesty, mutual affection, and true feelings for one another rather than something that's coerced, then that's an authentic from the heart apology i would welcome rather than something that's but mere lip services to appease us for our favoritism.
Think about it! In due course and when Japan is good and ready on its own, she will acknowledge the mistakes and the crimes of its predecessors and that, not fake apologies forced upon them, is what we are and we should look toward to.
