In regards to the Real Life section at the bottom there, I'd like to point out that a lot of the reason Sino-Japanese relations are still strained by WWII isn't so much the Sins of Our Fathers angle as the Japanese Government's revisionist history stance.

Official Japanese government stance (in their textbooks, even) is that the Rape of Nanking, the "comfort women" they forced into prostitution, and their own death camps never happened.

You can read more about it here:

For that reason, I would like to remove that part in the Real Life section - would that be against site protocol?

Can this trope apply to the more general situation of taking revenge out on a proxy because the original wrongdoer is unavailable? The description implies that it only applies to taking it out on the wrongdoer's descendants, but that seems rather narrow.

Nah, it applies only to the descendants, given that they are a common target.
