Benjamin Kang Lim: China Communists reassess World War Two victory

From Reuters AlertNet:

Ahead of the 60th anniversary of the end of World War Two, China’s Communists have qualified their claim that the Nationalists, who ruled the country at the time, had little to do with fighting the invading Japanese…

The Communists issued a circular in May, acknowledging that the “entire nation” defeated Japan, departing from past propaganda.

“The spirit of this year’s commemorations has been changed to: all the people fought the war. No mention has been made of the KMT refusing to fight,” said a political commentator who writes under the pseudonym Liang Kezhi.
