In China, tensions inflame festering war wounds – David Lague

From the International Herald Tribune:

It has been 60 years since Japan’s invading army of two million soldiers laid down its arms in China, but Jiaozhuanghu and scores of other well-funded memorials and museums in the country play a part in nurturing widespread resentment over Japanese wartime aggression and atrocities.

This enduring sense of grievance, inflamed by rising nationalism in Japan, remains the biggest obstacle to a stable, long-term relationship between East Asia’s traditional dominant powers.
