I've been seeing more and more news about anti-Japanese sentiment by Chinese because of their claims of "Japanese imperialism" over the Senkaku or Diaoyu Islands, but what about the other countries affected by what is looking like "Chinese imperialism"?

The Philippines are being forced out of the Scarborough Shoal by the Chinese navy and other countries, like Vietnam, are being bullied out of the Spratly Islands.

China is trying to steal (as with the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, or Taiwan) or outright bully (as with Japan) their way into ownership of one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world, yet I hardly hear anything about it. They didn't care about any of these mostly uninhabitable islands until it was discovered they may contain large stores of natural resources.

Why aren't people protesting the Chinese embassies around the world the way they're protesting the Japanese?

Maybe the resentment still exists over what the Japanese did to the Chinese in the thirties. You can't massacre 300,000 civilians for fun in Nan King alone and expect people to forget about it so easily. Personally, I think China has too many internal problems to go on with any military conquests. They and North Korea, (and Obama) are the last communists and it's not been good for them.

Because MASA, the person who started it, is in Wahiawa, and wanted some local responses.
