COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY MURRAY BREWSTER IN CBC NEWS

 

“Canada is not the only country whose nationals are detained in China – Kimihiro Ishikane”

“Surviving a diplomatic brawl with China takes patience, discretion: Japanese ambassador”

 

Yes, and avoiding one in the first place takes more good sense and judgment than Canada appears to possess in its current management of foreign affairs.

By the way, having a Japanese official speak out on China’s diplomacy also shows less than good judgment.

There is deep surviving hostility in China towards Japan for its massive war crimes before and during WWII.

I’m talking about genuine atrocities such as the Rape of Nanking and the documented use by the Japanese of germ warfare.

Then there’s a number of other ugly matters like Japan’s use of “comfort women,” essentially prisoners employed involuntarily as prostitutes to serve Japanese soldiers.

I learnt of the depth of the hostility from a group of wonderful Chinese students studying in Canada whom I knew for nearly three years.
