Understandable lawsuit, but lacking in inspiration. Governments do resort to lawsuits all the time to advance political agendas. Happens here in the US with elected State Attorneys routinely filing politically inspired lawsuits against the US government, without any realistic hope of prevailing. Or take a Special Federal Prosecutor with a big budget and the right to hire and choose the best US attorneys for its team. It files a federal lawsuit against Russian companies, including a couple that were not in existence in 2016, for interference in the US elections. Big gun, highly paid chain of command with moronic attorneys signing off approval of the lawsuit. Then, the suit is quietly dropped months later. The real display of imagination comes when there are impromptu and violent, but coordinated demonstrations against foreigners. Understand that it is against the law to demonstrate in the PRC, there will be "spontaneous" and orchestrated demonstrations against Japanese when it suits a governmental purpose. With thousands dead in Wuhan and the Americans responsible according to the PRC government attorneys filing suit, why aren't there violent spontaneous demonstrations? The answer is easy. The heretofore "spontaneous" rage might accidentally be expressed against the Party.
