East Asia or Eurasia?

I wrote about the escalating brouhaha between China and Japan here. Here is the latest installment.

For those of you who remember Orwell's 1984, the government of Oceania often switched the identity of the 'Great Enemy' between 'East Asia' and 'Eurasia'. After every switch, the official 'historians' would have to scramble to make sure history was thoroughly and completely changed.

The actions of the leaders of People's Republic of China with regard to Japan is eerily Orwellian.
