General Tani Masuo, the man who oversaw the Nanking Massacre, was executed in March 1947 after being found guilty of war crimes by the war tribunal set up by Chiang Kai-shek.

"If by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people — their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties — someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal."" -John F. Kennedy (1960)
