After yet another week of China's government-sanctioned anti-Japanese protests in which rioters smashed windows of the Japanese embassy and looted Japanese stores, China is demanding an apology from Japan.
The Scotsman reports:
Japan Should Apologise, Says ChinaChina's aggressive, yet petulant behavior reminds me of the following dialogue from A Fish Called Wanda, with China as the thuggish, psychopathic Otto and Japan playing well-mannered barrister Archie:
A top Chinese official today blamed Japan for the current diplomatic row between the two countries and demanded an apology from Tokyo.
"The responsibility for the current situation falls on the Japanese side," Vice Foreign Minister Wu Dawei told reporters, one day after tens of thousands demonstrated against Japan in at least six Chinese cities.
..."It shouldn’t be us who should apologise," Wu said. "It is Japan who should apologise."
OTTO: Apologize!I just hope the current situation doesn't play out like the rest of that scene.
ARCHIE: Are you totally deranged?
OTTO: You pompous, stuck-up, snot-nosed, English, giant, twerp, scumbag, f**kface, dickhead, a**hole!
ARCHIE: How very interesting. You're a true vulgarian, aren't you?
OTTO: You're the vulgarian, you f**k! Now apologize.
ARCHIE: What... me to you?
