World China to US: “How’d You Like It If Japan Claimed Hawaii?”

China’s latest ploy to ensure universal acceptance of its ancient and inalienable claim to the Senkaku isles has been to take out an ad in the New York Times asking Americans how they would react to Japan inexplicably claiming Hawaii – although some have pointed out comparisons of Japan claiming Hawaii to China claiming parts of Okinawa may be rather more appropriate than intended.

In this case, a Chinese businessman and self-proclaimed “ambassador of peace” took out a half-page ad (half of which was in Chinese in case the other message was not clear enough) in the New York Times, none too subtly attempting to push the Pearl Harbor button in the feeble minds of its American readers

How would Americans feel, and what would America do, if Japan announced that Hawaii was its territory?
A call for peace to prevent Japan’s claim on China’s Diaoyu Islands.

Chen Guangbiao, citizen of China and ambassador of peace, solemnly declares to the U.S. government and the American people:

•The Diaoyu Islands have been part of China since antiquity.​
•Japan’s right wing is now violating China’s territorial sovereignty and threatening the stability and security of the Asia Pacific region.​
•The Diaoyu Islands dispute and Japan’s so-called move to nationalize the islands, were incited by Japan’s right wing and should be steadfastly protested.​
•I call on the U.S government and people everywhere to condemn Japan’s provocative behavior.​
Amongst Japanese online his efforts have met with the expected derision:
“This is pushing it a bit far.”

“Since when have we ever claimed Hawaii?”

“Nobody is saying Hawaii is Japanese territory…”

“If Japan did claim Hawaii, which has never been under any form of Japanese control, then that would be tantamount to a declaration of war. What is China trying to say here?”

Yea, lets make US unfriendly with Japan so we can sell our Chineese tech to them and not the japaneese ... my opinion.

China: How would you like it if Tibet owned Shanghai?

There were some guys the other day giving away free Tibets. They had signs and everything. I took one and will soon begin negotiations with China.

    Most people fail at life throughout their adulthood. Sometimes we get to learn from it. Usually it just feels like crap.
