Not that it's not a mass atrocity, but I'm not sure that Japan's killing of Chinese civilians in the Rape of Nanjing really belongs in this article. Given that the debate over the R2P is specifically in regards to international intervention in DOMESTIC affairs, and that that particular piece of the article is about the vulnerability of Chinese civilians to atrocities imposed by their own government, I think the Sino-Japanese War isn't relevant. Unless someone had a particular reason for including it/thinking it was relevant? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 18:51, 25 March 2012
