No, Americans no when to move on and don't dwindle on the Past. We learn from our mistakes but don't keep baggering others because of the past. China needs to move on. Otherwise, it looks like the leadership in China is trying to distract their citizens from other problems within China and direct them on what is going on outside the Country.

Why some people put their heads in the sand and talk only about China?

"TOKYO — Japan’s Defense Minister Tomomi Inada, just back from Pearl Harbor, on Thursday visited a Tokyo shrine that honors Japan’s war dead, including convicted war criminals.

The visit, and one by another Cabinet minister the day before, drew rebukes from neighboring SOUTH KOREA and China." https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/asia_pacific/japans-defense-minister-visits-yasukuni-shrine/2016/12/28/52985c38-cd70-11e6-85cd-e66532e35a44_story.html?utm_term=.46cce7de3c9f

I have lots of reservation of sincerity presented by Japanese right wing govt.
The wreath laying in Pearl Harbour without an apologies showed clearly that Japanese govt wanting to atone for all the misdeeds done in WW2 by using the American landscape to bury all the sins. By doing so, Abe is trying to lure the new elect President that Japanese people and govt will always treasure the military support rendered to them to contain China at the expense of mitigating the risks that china will avenge for the WW2 brutality. The Jap is living in fear that the rise of Chinese would haunt them one day. Rather than making atone for the misdeeds done by paying respects to the Nanjing memorial ground, they prefer to be a service 'dog' to the American to buy better insurance. If Abe could lay a wreath in Nanjing, I trust the Chinese or even Asia people will be more forgivings and thereafter relationship would be less tense between Asian neighbours. I wonder why the American govt could not make such a request to his 'puppet' as such gesture would surely make a peaceful rise of Asia and world more evident, unless the US has hidden agenda to avoid peace within the Asian ground ?

"Shrine visit unmasks Abe Cabinet's true sentiments" Here we go again, folks.

"Nor would any condolences be welcome, when it is clear from the words and deeds of Abe and his colleagues that any sympathy would not be sincere and simply proffered to practical ends." Give the retarded rhetoric a rest.
