In order to achieve the status of being a "normal country", the Shinzo Abe administration in Japan has been doing everything it can to bury the country's criminal war record. With their false sense of pride, Abe and his cronies haven't hesitated to lie and deny younger generations access to the truth.
Lies are lies. Liars are liars.
Yet calling Abe a liar hardly helps, because without personal experience of those gruesome days, few know what truly happened. Hence, the decision by China's State Archives Administration to publish the handwritten confessions of convicted Japanese war criminals is worth applause, because it provides solid counter evidence to what the brazen Abe and his like-minded compatriots are peddling about their country's war of aggression.
