Setting the nations of East Asia against each other!

I was recently listening to a BBC radio show outlining problems in East Asia, primarily between China and Japan. There was of course that history book, and now it would seem that the US is positioning Japan against China in the region. About this UNSC thing Japan, surely you are a proud nation with a great history, but the Chinese are still hurt by your actions from the last century. Adopt the humility that must accompany pride and honour and offer the hand of friendship to your neighbours, do not be the puppets of a nation that left the people of two of your cities as little more than shadows on the ground. As Europeans we would not entertain the idea of Germany on the UNSC so quickly, and the issue I feel is comparable.
