First he talks about how awful the Nanjing Massacre, commonly known as the great rape, was to the people of China. The Nanjing Massacre occurred when Imperial Japan raided the Chinese City of Nanjing to further their empire. Japans military leader at the time wanted his soldiers to be cold and savage.
