China Post Editorial: Japan’s rising rightism hurts its U.N. ambitions

From The China Post:

The resurgence of rightist forces in Japan is unsettling for its neighbors, not the least of which is mainland China. South Korea, another victim of Japan’s militarism during the last world war, is no less concerned.

To most Chinese and Koreans, Japan’s recent revision of history text books that whitewashes the country’s war-time atrocities is outrageous. For example, the Rape of Nanking is omitted from their history books, and the annexation of Korea was justified because “Japan’s independence would have been threatened if the Peninsula had fallen into hostile hands”.
