They've even asked US publisher McGraw-Hill to delete 2 paragraphs about the subject in US textbooks. They should NOT host 2020!!

So I suppose a WW2 section with comfort women, POW Death Marches, the Rape of Nanking and Kamikazes is out of the Opening Ceremony?

Happy just to have Hello Kitty, Godzilla and Pokemon myself.

If they don't include those at least in the closing ceremony, then they're no better than China, who couldn't in any way poke fun at themselves in any way.
