A key difference between post-War Germany and post-War Japan: Germany has accepted its guilt — embraced it even — and tried to atone. Japan still disputes its crimes.(As an aside, in 20 years, which will we be? The country that admits to torture and war crimes and atones, or Japan: in denial, defending a national pride that history despoils?)In this article, the war continues.
Having visited China twice, I can tell you that where I went, the Japanese are widely disliked; even hated.
