Wonder why the Chinese are upset?

Maybe it's their textbooks.

Unlike Japan, in China the government really does control history. China's own history has been relentlessly rewritten to erase the episodes the Communist Party would rather forget.

Hi Patrick,

Put yourself into the Chinese shoes: Let's say your home country was invaded. Years after, your enemy claimed that they did not brutally invade your country and were actually doing good deeds. What makes the matter worse is that your enemy try to brainwash their descendents. What would you feel?

BTW, the quote is so not true. It is from Japan Today anyway. So, I won't be surprised if it is biased.
