    Being a victim of a nuclear attack means never having to say you are sorry

    Yes, but it took years, the Chinese leadership put a TREATY affiliation ahead of their people:

    Only in 1995, on the 50th anniversary of the end of the war, did the Diet house of the Japanese parliament pass a resolution expressing "deep remorse"over Japan's World War II actions, noting simultaneously that such actions took place in the context of worldwide "colonial rules and acts of aggression." Soon after, Japanese Prime Minister Tomiichi Murayama made a "personal" statement expressing his remorse, in which he called Japanese actions a "mistake" which would not be repeated. Otherwise, the official Japanese position is that war-crimes issues were settled at the Tokyo War Crimes Tribunal--after which seven Japanese high-ranking officers were hanged, and at subsequent war-crimes trials in China. The issue of reparations was settled in the 1951 San Francisco Peace Treaty, where an approximate $15-per-head payment for POWs was awarded for distribution to the Red Cross.

    That is changing & an apology was issued in 1995, see my other post; the Chinese bear some of the blame, they wanted TRADE over honor.

    America apologized to Americans and others for the Japanese internment. The removal of those people from the west coast was not a good move, but in a way understandable.
