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.

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.

    basically they took away all the safeguards to save money and then the worst happened lol
  • The Helper The Helper:
    they did not winterize any of the plants and they froze
  • The Helper The Helper:
    it is not that power consumption went up it was available capacity went down with power plants freezing
  • Varine Varine:
    What a fucking disaster. Are all of the Texas people okay? I see TH is, are we the only two?
  • Varine Varine:
    How have the other states held up? I just got power back so I have no idea what's going on, we didn't get warning
  • Varine Varine:
    Why the fuck didn't they fix this ten years ago when it happened?
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I'm in it with you and TH as well. My power has been in and out, and I have a ruptured pipe that I need to fix, shouldn't be too bad to fix myself.
  • Varine Varine:
    I hope you're staying warm! Apparently the supply is coming up so hopefully we can get back to normal power soon, mine has been on for six hours now.
  • M Mulciberxp:
    My power has been off most of the last 2 days. We had a generator installed 3 years ago though, so we're staying warm. Water is another issue...
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Where I live has a pool so we are using that to get water to flush the toilets. We have enough bottled water to drink and brush teeth and stuff but it has been a few days and no shower though....
  • Varine Varine:
    I had some water in gallon jugs, and got our water back on yesterday. We don't seem to have any leaks, but I haven't crawled down there to look yet.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    still no water I cannot remember when I last showered now I know how they felt in the old west lol
  • Varine Varine:
    My poor plants are happy, they aren
  • Varine Varine:
    aren't used to going this long without water or lights or normal heat. I think a couple of them froze, but they look like they'll make it
  • Varine Varine:
    Well one of them is pretty rough but I think it was sick to begin with, that one always had some problems.

  • Ghan Ghan:
    That is such a Texas thing to say lol
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    a positive could come out of this. So many people trapped at home could put a dent in the covid numbers in Texas
  • Varine Varine:
    That dude, Tom Boyd, is really upset about the backlash from his "it's your fault you're freezing" thing because he claims he resigned before saying it, so it wasn't like he said it in his official capacity or anything.
  • jonas jonas:
    Almost as if he was saying "screw you guys, I'm going home"
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm fairly new here still but that seems to be the analogous message by several of our politicians.

    Nobody?
