Japan was able to defeat Russia in a sea war and challenge western powers throughout the Pacific kicking their buts from time to time. The Japanese were brutal but are special.
The opium dealers (Europeans) and Japs took advantage of China at her weakest time, civil war. If you pay attention to Chinese history past and ancient you will find that China always gets her payback I can assure you Japan will be taught a good lesson by the Chinese. After all the Japanese culture, writing, etc were copied from the Chinese.
Exactly, and look at all of China's movies now, ultra-nationalist fare where Chinese folk heros routinely beat the shit out of evil Japanese, and the occasional British imperialist. Ip man 1 and 2 come to mind.
