    Eh, only a couple of months, you're fine. :-)

    It's the "couple of years" older threads getting resurrected that drive people nuts lol.

    EDIT: Another surprising case in point South Korea and China.
    I wonder how many respondents Pew Research Center conducted their poll with and at what educational level and economic background the respondents came from...does the poll really have statistical meaning ?

    Aside from that I believe the 'vibes' are based on economics...who are one's 'trade partners' ? Who are the smaller nations 'selling their rice to' ? Which of the larger nations are investing into the smaller economy nations, etc ?

    The "South China Sea" claims have more to due with Superpower status as most ASEAN nations can not even claim to have a naval force of any consequence to resistance of the Superpowers.

    Actually, after living in Toronto's Chinatown for a few years, all non-Asians began to look the same to me :|

    Maybe I'm craving a dead Celine Dion pic. Who knows?

    A possible reason why India gave such low favorability ratings to South Korea and Japan might be because people simply don't care much about these countries. A low positive rating does not necessarily mean a negative, it could also mean neutral. This poll reflects how many people in India simply don't have an opinion on most countries: http://www.globescan.com/news_archives/bbc06-3/#india

    The white gap between positive and negative is consistently large for India in all those graphs.

    Wrong actually. The Saviour of China would have denied Mao all his support.

    Nanking. The Butcher of China ain't going to recruit a lot of Chinese troops.

    But also CKS never viewed the Japanese as the main threat. He kept the best armies out of the war in anticipation to face the Communists later.

    Sir, how about the claim that Nationalist troops tied down a large chunk of Japanese troops so they couldn't be deployed elsewhere?
    More Japanese interests than anything else. They wanted/needed to knock China out of the war. They couldn't do it. But also CKS never viewed the Japanese as the main threat. He kept the best armies out of the war in anticipation to face the Communists later. It was only after Stillwell's threats that he released a few of his best divisions

    Or is that an effect of occupational duties more than fighting the Nationalist troops?

    Didn't Nationalist troops score some victories against Japanese?
    More than a few. The IJA never ventured into Central China and not because they didn't tried.

    I have to agree, CCP didn't do much of anything in the actual fight against Japanese.
    You haven't see the new movie, the 100 Regiments?
