This is unimportant what Bush said in Russia or did, only that 50 nations together with China leader celebrated the event and they like it and China provide photos ; The grand parade marking the 60th anniversary of the victory of Russia's Great Patriotic War over Nazi Germany is underway in Moscow's Red Square on Monday http://news.xinhuane...nt_2936961.htm.
Chinese Peng , a well-known World War II historian, said that the rest of the world seldom integrates China's contribution into its collective memory of World War II because of the cold war after the victory in 1945.
And Bush set with his wife, which she segregated the world powers, otherwise, he would be lonely he has no too many friends in Europe.
Probably he would be happy with president Israel but this place was reserved for Polish Kwasniewski.
Bush is interested in reheated the cold war but only he is interested in.
"China's resistance effectively stopped a Japanese invasion into the far east of the Soviet Union, which was facing an extremely arrogant Nazi Germany in its west. The far east region became the most important strategic home front for equipment and food, and more 500,000 troops were transferred from the region to the west,"
When Germany swept the Europe in 1940, Chinese troops initiated winter counteroffensives across the country..
"That is the main reason why Japan did not respond the demands of Germany to attack the Soviet Union or invade British troops in Southeast Asia,".
. "Without Chinese resistance, it would have been almost impossible to implement the 'Europe first' strategy,"
Although China was itself having a difficult time in 1942, it still sent an expeditionary forces of 100,000 to Burma to fight the Japanese. In the next three years, China sent a total of 300,000 troops to Burma, killing more than 60,000 Japanese soldiers.
Japan declared that they could defeat China in three months, but China resisted for eight years at a cost of 35 million lives and 100 billion US dollars worth of materials. The poorly equipped but brave Chinese armed forces kept many thousands of Japanese bogged down in Asia while the western alliance struggled against the formidable Germans.
Even when the American army started its counteroffensive in the Asia-Pacific region in December of 1943, the China Theater still contained at 54 percent of the Japanese land forces. "Victory was not automatic. The history of World War II would have been completely different without China's long-term resistance," China also provided huge agricultural and mineral materials for its allies during the war, 450 million US dollars worth for the Soviet Union, US$747.85 million worth for the United States and 114.8 million pounds worth for Britain, http://news.xinhuane...nt_2939452.htm.
U.S. *Democracy * Aid for Ex-Soviet States Falls Despite Emphasis From Bush and because *He who pays the piper gets to call the tune.* Bush should be first to understand that.
