Chinese Break Windows at Japan Embassy

Well, at least it’s not our embassy this time. Just another example of rising nationalism in China.

"Boycott Japanese goods!" the protesters chanted. "Long live China!"

Someone should tell this group that Japan is the second leading consumer of worthless Chinese junk in the world. It’s just another installment of a little game the Chinese, Japanese and South Koreans play called ‘Who’s the Biggest Victim”. Japan does have a bad habit of acting as though the only event in world history is the Bombing of Hiroshima. But don’t tell me the Chinese have just noticed. Imagine what they are going to do when someone tells them about the Boxer Rebellion!


Well is it the textbook, the Security Council issue or just Spring Break?

Street protests, vandalism highlight growing friction between China and Japan
