It's all relative 


From my vantage point in Southern California, I think of this conflict or that conflict or whatever. But from the perspective of China, they get upset about other things. Such as Japan. However, this Chinese source (CRI China) is not producing its own material here, but quoting the New York Times:


People everywhere wish they could be proud of every bit of their countries' histories. But honest people understand that's impossible, and wise people appreciate the positive value of acknowledging and learning from painful truths about past misdeeds. Then there is Japan's new foreign minister, Taro Aso, who has been neither honest nor wise in the inflammatory statements he has been making about Japan's disastrous era of militarism, colonialism and war crimes that culminated in the Second World War....

[S]o many Asians have been angered by a string of appalling remarks Mr. Aso has made since being named foreign minister last fall. Two of the most recent were his suggestion that Japan's emperor ought to visit the militaristic Yasukuni Shrine, where 14 Japanese war criminals are among those honored, and his claim that Taiwan owes its high educational standards to enlightened Japanese policies during the 50-year occupation that began when Tokyo grabbed the island as war booty from China in 1895.



Meanwhile, even though Elton John did not become UN Secretary General, he must have gotten a position in China. They're talking about harmony a lot:


Deciphering 'Harmonious Society'

Chinese President Hu Jintao has instructed the country's leading officials and Party cadres to place "building a harmonious society" at the top of their agenda. Experts believe that a harmonious society is one that puts people first.

Headlines
- Harmony Important to China
- People's Daily Urges for Social Stability
- Religious Role in Harmonious Society
- Forestry Key in Building Harmonious Society



What? Religion and trees get equal billing? I guess both are commanded to fulfill the needs of the People's State.
