Japanese politician: Japan must not tamper with history of its invasion of China

Mari Kushibuchi is a member of Japan's House of Representatives and has long been committed to restoring the historical truth of Japan's invasion of China and urging the Japanese government to face up to history and reflect on its crimes. On September 18, 1931, Japanese troops bombarded barracks near Shenyang and began its full-blown invasion of northeast China. Kushibuchi said the Japanese government often uses the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki to emphasize its victim identity but avoids antecedents of launching a war of aggression and colonial rule.
