China makes mileage from Japan’s defeat – Antoaneta Bezlova

From Asia Times:

Japan’s defeat, which ended 60 years ago, is still coming in handy for the Chinese Communist Party () to claim a unique mandate to rule the country, as well as to emphasize external political needs.

A series of lavish celebrations centered on the 60th anniversary of Japan’s surrender – on September 2, 1945, and the formal surrender of China by Japan a week later on September 9 in Nanjing – seem aimed at buttressing the legitimacy of the CCP’s power, acquired half a century ago.
