The West is showing its true colors, again,the US did not get involved in 'helping' China until after Pearl Harbor gotattacked, it was then that the US decided to 'help' China, for China had the numbers,the manpower, to defeat the Japanese, China had been going it alone since 1931and was steadily eroding Japanese will, China was used by the US, the US neverintended to help China, as was proven during the Korean war. The US dropped two nukes on Japan to send amessage to the Communists, it had squat to do with winning the war, theJapanese had all but thrown in the towel before the nukes were used. Japan and the USare allies, China isconsidered to be THE enemy of both the USand Japan, thus no Westernrepresentation at China's70th commemoration of the war. Shame on the West.
