Why did they have campaign in China?, 4 July 2007
Author: gege-qing from China

In the beginning of the movie, the aside said the campaign was to protect their country. To protect their country, they could invade other country. Is this right? According to this parlance, our country also can assign the force to Japan? And to protect our profit,we can take somewhere in Japan as our basis for almost 50 years? Everyone who love peace can consider this logic is wrong and don't agree with Japanese acquaintance for the history. Today most Japanese don't correct the wrong viewpoint of their invaded history.

So Japanese is not worth to be trust! And I think China will be strong in the future and don't suffer the other countries's invasion.
