I'm pretty sure they won't know who Voldemort is considering he doesn't appear once in Harry Potter and the Leopard-Walk-Up-To Dragon.

I though she was Scottish/Korean?

I haven't read Harry Potter, but it sounds like it's actually Japan that's accusing China of being Voldemort.

Never mind, apparently they're both calling each other Voldemort.

A Yahoo! link?  This week?  Ok.

"'If militarism is like the haunting Voldemort of Japan, the Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo is a kind of horcrux, representing the darkest parts of that nation's soul,' the Chinese envoy wrote. "

That's kinda sad and a crappy piece of British culture to use.  They should have accused them of being Cybermen or Daleks, or maybe Sontarans.

Fun fact: Yasukuni (靖国) means "peaceful country".

It was probably a reference he new English speakers and Japanese would get. Harry Potter and the series is very popular in Japan even broadcast on Japanese TV.

"So let me get this straight...it's a Magical Girl anime, but it's not an anime and the hero isn't a girl? How do they come up with this stuff?"

"One is to seek dialogue, and abide by the rule of law. The other is to play the role of Voldemort in the region by letting loose the evil of an arms race and escalation of tensions, although Japan will not escalate the situation from its side"

Yeah. Pay no attention to the picture of Shinzo Abe visiting Yasakuni

~~Although China has so far refused to enable dialogue between our leaders, I sincerely hope that it will come forward, rather than keep invoking the ghost of 'militarism' of seven decades ago, which no longer exists," Hayashi wrote.

Translation: That little rape thing was sooooooooooooo 70 years ago. Can't we all just be friends?

Goddammit Japan.

So whichever side initiates pre-emptive war--just like Bush and Co did with the invasion of Iraq--don't get mad if we get dragged into another Pacific war over raw materials and oil.

We had our oil war; China and Japan have no reason not to have theirs now.

Thanks Fartbusho.

I'd buy that, just for the Moaning Myrtle bath scene. What's better then cartoon boobies? Ghostly cartoon boobies.

WWII in Asia was a long time ago, and primarily it is used for propaganda purposes on both sides.

China is a rising power and like all rising powers does the "manifest destiny" thing. So far they are mostly trying to take ocean areas, thankfully their navy is not that great an it hasn't devolved into a shooting war anywhere. Just don't expect it to suddenly get better. Japan is right that China should stop trying to take what isn't theirs.

As for Japan, there is still a fairly large portion of people that considers the Empire to have been glory years. Yasukuni is the epitome of that and no PM should be going there. China is right that it represents the worst aspects of Japan.

You know that you've contributed to global culture (for better or for worse) when the envoys of two foreign nations refer to plot points from your books in diplomatic communications.
