For japs atrocities, it is not about number, it is the manner in which they executed and torture human. That is one reason why the Americans nuked them. Seriously, no nation will ever go for conventional war with them again. Just nuke them.<quoted text>
I'm not using Mao to justify any genocide.
I'm just pointing out that the people of China have more reason to hate the CCP than to hate Japan.
The only people trying to justify genocide here are the CCP supporters.
So far they've even gone as far as trying to fabricate 30 million Chinese deaths in an effort to try and make Japanese occupation look worse than CCP occupation.
Under CCP, most people died from famine because of Mao's stupid policy. Many educated ones got tortured and committed suicide, but nowadays the younger Chinese generations simply want to move on. Mao was just too charismatic, even today you have many supporters for him. What do you expect current leadership to do, denounce Mao and risk having internal infighting?
When I visit China, I still don't go into the history museum, especially those on civil war and WWII ones. Many just said how great CCP was against the Japs, pure bullshit, we all know it was KMT's blood which was shed in fighting the Japs. In the last few years, the opinions are changing with historians being more daring to speak up. Go to LuGouQiao outside Beijing and get the feel of the history replay between Japs and KMT, well worth the walk.
