America has also refused to apologize to Koreans over No-Gun-Ri but somehow this doesn't seem to anger Koreans as much as much as what Japan does.
So smart. Lose a word to say. That's why North hates america so much.
Also ppl I dont hate japan

That's because the US is the most capable nation when it comes to subtle propaganda. Everything from regime change, or "coming to the aid of allies", to making assistance aid with conditions and backroom deals, to using the mass media to manipulate public opinion and then to use whatever public opinion to generate a moral "high ground" to bomb, invade another sovereign country etc. The US is a master at those crafts, and this is why the US remains a superpower. Britain used to be the pro, but it grew weak after WWII. China is an amateur at all this, and there is still a lot for it to learn.

China is thankfully intelligent enough to ignore all of this from the USA. It is funny when America demands China cooperate with it when it comes to North Korea while it continues to contain China and refuse to recognize China's claims in Taiwan and the South China Sea. Basically, China gets absolutely nothing in return from helping America with North Korea essentially the same one sided demand that the US thinks is fair.

Not exactly true because they would get a more controlled North Korea, should they have a nuclear weapon. That's something that's valuable by itself. As a matter of fact, the US should be out of this equation from a Chinese point of view.

South Korea and China actually don't forget the comfort women issue.

World war 2 fighting dramas between Japan and China are often shown on tv in China and the Chinese forces seen include both KMT and CCP forces fighting the Japanese force. With the battles and masscres frequently shown on tv, very small kids in China also know what happened during those years.
