Chinese state media has publicly called the Japanese prime minister a thief and a liar. Why has China reacted so strongly and so personally to the actions of the Japanese government? One reason may be the feeling that President Hu Jintao, who had objected strongly to Noda's nationalization plan, had been snubbed.
