Protests, we didn't notice any protests... 

China. Gotta love 'em, yeah?

They want an arms ban lifted. But they toughen their talk against Taiwan, and now their country is full of violent anti-Japan protests (with the police action so very quiet, quelling very little of the protests). Seems counterproductive to their desires (lifting of the ban) doesn't it?

And as far as their protests, that Japan has whitewashed their wartime atrocities.....how can govt officials in a country whose textbooks teach, for instance, that 1949 was the beginning of the Xinjiang region (whose history extends back just a tad further), make such claims with a straight face?

Living in reality is overrated though, ya know?
