China and Japan…

Tonight I bumped into by far the most interesting cab driver I’ve ever met. A former member of the Chinese Navy. Young. Still in his late 20’s. He loves China. He loves Germany in spite of their prior colonization of China – pointing out that their “colony” in northern China was even larger than France. He loves America in spite of China being at war with America during the Korean War. He loves all the western countries for one reason or another… But he hates Japan. He feels the Japanese have never paid for the sins they committed in Nanjing, the rest of China, the rest of Asia… He is very much not alone in his feelings. This one man to me is representative of China, if such a representative can be found. He’s not terribly worried about his own civil rights while half his countrymen are barely surviving on family farms. He said that American’s just don’t understand that though the Chinese Communist Party has the same name as that defeated Russian political party, it’s totally different. It’s only the same name, but nothing else. In his heart he wishes for peace, but he feels the Chinese can’t build their military fast enough. He feels the Japanese are still a huge threat and feels that Taiwan is part of China. We didn’t talk about Tibet…
