30 million+ Chinese casualties in the 2nd Sino-Japanese war (around WW2), but no compensation (not that compensation will ever be an acceptable trade for human life).

Why is Japan allowed to demonstrate its fascism on the streets so openly within the law? Why didn't the Americans put a stop to this, as they had done in Germany?

Ok, but history is littered with many human rights atrocities . Was not the atomic bombing of innocent Japanese civilians in the 2nd world war also an atrocity? And how about the African slavery holocaust? the continuing severe poverty in some well known countries etc etc. it is a difficult one because human beings seem to have a gift for inflicting atrocities on each other all over the globe! You have identified one example- there are thousands of others! what to do?

America had a policy of isolationism. You can’t compare American policy towards Japan in 1937 to Germany in 1941-1945, we have 2 different situations.

and lets hope that they also recall that China's human rights record is also patchy!

thankfully they are clever enough to separate two different periods of history, and talk about each.

China's role in WWII is definitely grossly underestimated by the Western education.

We also seem to just ignore that the Americans dropped a nuclear bomb on a civilian target of an enemy already trying to surrender.

History is written by the victors.

And the Jewish role in Transatlantic slavery? has that been forgotten? And the African slavery holocaust-the oppressors like to twist history!
